WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF A
PROFESSOR ACCUSED YOU
OF CHEATING ON AN EXAM???
If you're an LSA student, you would probably
have a hearing before the
LSA Academic Judiciary
The Judiciary handles most cases of alleged cheating and
placerism in the Colleqe, and that orobably makes it
the most important committee that students sit on in LSA.
The Judiciary is composed of 7 students and 7 faculty
members. However, the LSA STUDENT GOVERNMENT is
currently filling four vacant student positions.
If you are interested in opplying, you must sign up for on
interview at the LSA Student Government office--Room
4001 Michigan Union.

KICKS 95 POINTS

BOSTON Pj --Researchers
claim they have found new evi-
dence to link oral contracep-
tives wth increased dangers of
gall bladder disease, including
gallstones.
A study shows that women
who took normally prescribed
doses of oral contraceptives ex-
perienced a "significant rise"
in the level of cholesterol found
i, their gall bl-dder bile, the
rnsearchers reported.
SUCH INCREASED levels can
lead to the formation of gall-
stones, the researchers said in
an article published in a recent'
edition of the New England'
Journal of Medicine.
The scientists said they se-
lected white and American In-'
dian women between the ages
of 19 and 39 in Phoenix, Ariz.,
for the su>rvey.
One g-oup of women was stu-
died before and after starting
use of oral contraceptives. A
second grouip of women who
had been on the pill for an aver-
age of 37 months was tested
while on the pill and during
their menstrual periods, the re-,
port said.#
IN BOTH GROUPS, the re-
searchers found the increase in
c&olesterol saturation of gall
bladder bile "highly significant"
during the times when the wo-'
men were on the pill.
Bile is the fluid secreted by:
the liver.
The researchers said there

are two nossible reasons for the
incrnased cholesterol level-and
both may be operating in wo-
men on the pill.
The contraceptives might in-
crease the secretion of choles-
terol by the liver into the bile,
they said, and it could also de-
crease those bile acids which
woild normally work to break
down the cholesterol.
THE STUDY is believed to be
the first one nublished to docu-
inent the effects of estrogens
and progestins. the prime in-
gredients in oral contraceptives,
on human gall bladder bile.
Sig-ilar studies have been made
on laboratory animals.
Scientists have already docu-
mented a close association be-
tween gall bladder disease and
oral contraceptives and found a
correlation between the need for
gall bladder operations in post-
menonausal women and estro-
gen therapy frequently pre-
scribed to ease change of life
symptoms.
TIE PESEARCH team agreed
that in view of their findings
doctors ought to consider the
high gall bladder cholesterol
level, which usually 'precedes
the formation of gallstones, as
a possible side effect of the pill.
The New England Journal of
Medicine study was written by
Lynn Benion, Ronald Ginsberg,
Marc Garnick and Peter Ben-
nett.
