Feldkamp's carnal philosophy
,Sex isn't like picking your
nose, " philosophized John Feld-
kamp, a decade ago today. The
former University Housing Di-
rector's remarks came after the
Regents voted to waive a manda-,
tory curfew for fresh women, and
to permit students living in dorms
and Greek housing to set their
own visitation policies. Feld-
kamp, who described the whole
business of sex in the dorms as
"sordid, " said, "Personally I
can't imagine any mature woman
could have intercourse in a dor-
mitory. Usually when lit occurs
there are accompanying psycho-
logical problems. " Happy anni-
If you're a tenant in Ann Arbor, you should know something about
your legal rights - and 'One of the best ways to keep track of those rights
is to keep handy a copy of how to Evict Your Landlord, the Ann Arbor
tenants' rights booklet. A brand new printing of the booklet has hit the
streets, and you can pick up a copy at the University Cellar, at A
Periodical Retreat, and at certain other bookstores in the city. And if you,
want to do more for yourself as a tenant than just keep posted on your
rights, you might want to take advantage of the Ann Arbor Tenants
Union's beginning-of-the-semester membership drive. To join the TU or
become a volunteer worker, call 761-1225. Also on tenants' issues: the
Coalition for Better Housing is looking for volunteers to help on the cam-
paign to pass the two tenants' rights ballot proposals in the April election.
To join the campaign, call 994-0555. And finally, the MSA Housing Law
Reform Project is looking for people interested in journalism to do some
writing on tenants' matters - it would be a good thing to put on your
resume. If you're interested, call Steve at 763-9920. Happy renting!

Boob tube Bert
Henry Kissinger went to NBC after an illustrious career with the
Nixon Administration. Gerald Ford also went to work for NBC after a not-
so-illustrious career in his own administration. And now, after a brief,
headline-making stint in the Carter Administration, Bert Lance is going
to WXIA-TV, Atlanta. Apparently tired of the newsmaking side of the
media, Lance is moving to the newsbreaking side as a local television
commentator. Lance, who just paid off debts totalling $3.9 million, will
begin work February 6 at an undisclosed salary. Formerly the overdraft
king of Georgia banking, Lance says he's had "some unusual experi-
ences" which he feels qualify him for the newscaster position. And that's
the news. Goodnight, Bert.
STRASBOURG, France (AP) -
The European Court of Human
Rights condemned Britain yester-
day for "inhuman and degrading
treatment" of prisoners in Northern
Ireland in 1971.
But it rejected a statement by the
European Commission, the watchdog
body for the European Convention on
Human Rights, that interrogation
techniques in the troubled British
province amounted to "torture."
IRELAND LODGED the complaint
in 1971, when British forces were
using the so-called "five techniques"
to wrest information from detainees
to combat terrorist attacks by mem-
bers of the Irish Republican Army.
The "five techniques" involved
putting hoods on prisoners' heads,
subjecting detainees to continuous
noise, preventing them from sleep-
ing, making them stand for long
periods in painful positions and
depriving them of nourishment ex-
cept for occasional bread and water.
Irish officials said the court's judg-
ment was of major world importance
because it formally condemned the
interrogation methods. But British
officials expressed quiet satisfaction
that the court rejected attempts by
the Irish government to have it
endorse and broaden the commis-
sion's findings on violations of human
THE CASE was the first intergov-
ernmental incident to reach the court
since it was founded in 1959 and is
estimated to have cost the two
governments jointly about $1.8 mil-
Judge Giorgio Balladore Pallieri of
Italy, the court president, read the
judgment to a courtroom, crovrded
with journalists, including Soviet
newsmen and television crews.
Soviet journalists have followed
the case closely but it has not yet
been raised in the human rights
debate at the Belgrade conference on
Britain abolished use of the "five
techniques" in early 1972 and repeat-
ed at court hearings last year that the
interrogation procedures would nev-
er be used again. Britain also paid
compensation to victims totalling
THE COURT of 17 European
- judges decided 13-4 that the tech-
niques did not constitute "torture." It
* said the ruling was based on a United
Nations resolution defining torture as
an "aggravated and deliberate form
of cruel, inhuman or degrading
treatment or punishment."
In a dissenting opinion, Irish Judge
Philip O'Donoghue argued that tor-
ture in the modern world does not
have to take place' "in a medieval
dungeon" with "rack and thumb-
screw." He said persons can suffer
"mental" torture as well. Judges
from Greece, Cyprus and Austria
also dissented for other reasons.
British Judge SirGerald Fitzmaur-
ice disagreed with O'Donoghue. If
the "five techniques" constituted
torture, he asked, "how does one
characterize having one's finger
nails pulled out or being impaled on a
stake? Severe torture?"
The court's finding was based on
the cases of 14 men interrogated in
Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 1971.
