LANSING (UPI) - The state House
voted unanimously yesterday to crack
down on a sophisticated new class of
criminal - the computer thief - who
now is able to avoid severe retribution
because current law is outmoded.
The computer fraud bill, sent to the
Senate on a 97-0 vote, specifically
defines computer crime for the first
time and makes it punishable by up to
10 years in prison and a fine of up to
$5,000.
ACCORDING TO the bill's suppor-
ters, the lack of a specific definition
means of the crime even those who are
caught red-handed in major swindles
frequently must be prosecuted on lesser
charges.
The measure prohibits persons from
gaining access to a computer to obtain
funds under false pretenses or inten-
tionally alter or destroy the machine.

meeting.
SACUA members also discussed the
progress of a report to Shapiro on tren-
ds in administration/instruction costs.
Allen Spivey, chairman of the commit-
tee studying those trends, said the
report would be finished by the end of
summer.
Members also agreed to develop a
policy statement on how University
presidents should be chosen. Members
agreed that this should be worked on
through the coming year.

President Marion Burton, contains a 55-

Presidential writing in
on the wall at 'U' library

(Continued from Page 3)
William Harrison's whirlwind cam-
paign of 1840.
The library staffers, working on what
they say are funds unequal to the
money similar institutions receive,
pride themselves on the fact that they
buy documents with much research
value, rather than collecting the expen-
sive "big names" like a Washington or
a Lincoln.
"WE HAVE NEVER bought a Lin-
coln letter," beamed library Director
John Dann.
"They are very expensive, and we
like to concentrate on letters which
have not been published, with real
research value. In the Civil War period,
for example, we would generally prefer
to buy an unpublished, lesser-known
figure. You could buy 10-20 times the

amount of soldiers letters for the price
of one Lincoln letter."
The manuscripts on display generally
appear to be in fine condition. They are
stored in paper folders made free of the
acids that are usually found in paper,
and are put in letter boxes with
pressure distributed evenly. They are
stored away from sunlight, and are
kept at a controlled temperature.

COMICS
COLUMBUS,COhioCAP - Comics
such as The Hulk and Tom & Jerry have
taken their place alongside Tom
Sawyer and other literary works at a
public library here.
"I want some readers. This is another
attempt to snag a couple more
readers," says children's librarian
Mary Ann Maginnity.
Mrs. Maginnity spends about $40 on a
bundle of comics every two months.
"Once the kids see we have the
comics, they will come back. Then,
maybe we can suggest something else
that might catch their fancy. If they
never came in, we'd never have that
chance," she said.
