MSA to review proposed 'U' hazing policy

because it is difficult to say how far the
University can go in punishing mem-
bers of groups that aren't legally tied to
historically been the University prac-
tice," Johnson said. "Thus far, we take
the position that it's not our business."
Some hazing practices fall under
sanctions listed in the Rules of the
Unliversity Community, which are
designed to protect both faculty and
student rights, according to Johnson.
but the next step of deliberation will
beto clarify existing sanctions with the
jkliversity legal officers, he said.
"we'RE KIND of in the first phase,"
said Virginia Nordby, University af-
firnative action officer and policy
.oordinator. Nordby helped students
draft the guidelines.

that the guidelines represent "a really

It's something that has to be done,"
Hogan said.
"It's the University's responsibility
to take steps. They have to cover them-
selves," he said.

due. It's about time," Feiger said

national organization.
The hazing guidelines to be reviewed
by MSA tonight are the resultof work
started in April 1980. A group of frater-
nity and sorority leaders under the
guidance of Chris Carlsen of the
Student Organizations, Activities and
Programs Office organized to consider
the problem of hazing at the University.
Since then, the committee has written
several rough drafts of the proposed
guidelines, and worked with the Office
of Student Services to hammer out the
SACUA chairman Morton Brown said
yesterday he does not expect the com-
mittee to officially discuss the hazing
guidelines until next term.

But some members of the Univer-
sity's Greek system said they think the
guidelines are unnecessary'for frater-
nities and sororities.
"We should keep it (the hazing
problem) within the fraternity and
sorority system," said Robert Sullivan,
the Delta Tau Delta representative to

the Fraternity Coordinating Council.
SULLIVAN SAID that the Council has
its own system for dealing with infrac-
tions of the rules, and that fraternities
caught hazing cannot be recognized by
the Council.

after May commencement.

The Union is now reviewing bids for a general
contractor and is expected to present a contractor
to the Regents later this month for final approval.
One of the major changes, Cianciola said, will be
to "brighten up" the main floor of the building. The
new lighting will have "a very dramatic impact" on
the appearance, he said, making the Union more in-
Along with new lighting,, the corridors will be
widened and the woodwork will be stripped and
restained in its original, dark, fruit-wood color to
create a warm open area in which community
members may socialize, he said.
THE STUDY lounge on the main floor will remain
in place, but an "active" lounge, where people can

talk, eat, and ;drink, will be built across the hall.
Next to the "active" lounge will be an expanded
Campus Information Center.
The University Club will also undergo major
renovations, both physical and in programming,
according to Union Food Service Manager Gary
Treer. The drop ceiling will be removed and the
original ceiling, about four feet higher and designed
in the style of the original building, will be restored.
They have been experimenting with new types of
evening entertainment, including "reggae night"
and "Lively Fridays," which have been successful,
Treer said.

United Press international reports
Walesa calls for overthrow
WARSAW, Poland - The Communist Party yesterday accused
Solidarity leader Lech Walesa of calling for the overthrow of Polish authori-
ties during a closed union meeting last week.
Warsaw Radio broadcast Walesa's tape-recorded remarks, and Walesa
confirmed yesterday that he had made the comments. He told The
Associated Press his words were taken out of context but he would not
elaborate. A radio spokesman said he could not say where the tapes came
Coinciding with the harsh new Polish attack on Solidarity's leadership, the
Soviet government newspaper Izvestia yesterday charged that extremists in
Poland's trade union movement were verging on terrorism in their attempts
to undermine the influence of the ruling Communist Party.
GOP leader reprimanded
WASHINGTON - Republican Party Chairman Richard Richards has
been taken to the woodshed by White House aides unhappy with his recent
predictions that PresidentReagan might not seek re-election, and that
Richard Allen and David Stockman will soon lose their jobs.
Sources at the White House and GOP headquarters denied that Richards
is on his way out as Republican national chairman.
"He's on his way to keeping his mouth shut," said a White House source
who asked not to be identified.
William Greener III, communications director for the Republican
National Committee, acknowledged yesterday that since his comments a
week ago, Richards has had several discussions with White House aides and
"they were full and they were frank."
New economic figures gloomy
WASHINGTON - In the gloomiest forecast yet, Reagan administration
economists estimate the budget deficit could soar to a record $109 billion in
1982 and $162 billion by 1984, placing further strains on the president's
economic program.
The bleak projections, which do not take into account the new budget
cuts the president will seek from Congress early next year, point to the
"monstrous problem" confronting Reagan in his quest for a balanced budget
and a strong economic recovery, one administration official said yesterday.
Reagan says Libyan plot real
WASHINGTON - President Reagan rejected yesterday the denial by
Col. Moammar Khadafy that Libyan terrorists have been sent to the United
States to kill government leaders. "I wouldn't believe a word he says,"
Reagan said. "We have the evidence and he knows it.
The president left open the, possibility of punitive steps against the
Khadaft government. Asked whether he might seek a boycott of Libyan oil or
other economic sanctions, Reagan replied only that "There have been no
decisions made.
As to the question of whether the United States could stand by idly if a
foreign leader were trying to kill the president, Reagan said, "Well, maybe
you've just caught me before we've had a chance to counsel on this."
Creationism law challenged
LITTLE ROCK, Ark-A federal judge began hearing a suit yesterday
against an Arkansas law requiring public schools that teach evolution to give
equal time to creationism, the theory that the universe was created suddenly
from nothing.
In opening arguments, lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union,
which brought the suit, called the law a "dangerous violation" of the con-
stitution. But the state maintained that it would broaden the knowledge of
school children and does not require the teaching of religion. The law was
signed last March by Gov. Frank White and goes into effect next fall. Louisi-
ana has enacted a similar proposal, and the ACLU is challenging it as well.

roles in making the researchers and
their methods look ridiculous. "I don't
really blame the press. The FDA
played a crucial role in misleading the
press. They (the FDA) did not want to
remove saccharin from the market,"
he claimed.
ALTHOUGH THE FDA announced a
ban on saccharin in 1972, protests by the
American Dental Sopiety (which
claimed that use of saccharin instead of
sugar helps prevent tooth decay), the
American Cancer Society (which said
the risks of using saccharin are out-
weighed by its overall health benefits)
and other groups eventually resulted in
its continued use as a sweetener.,
Vander emphasized that animal

studies can give qualitative, but not
quantitative, results. "All (the resear-
ch) proves is that this chemical, given
in some huge dose, will cause cancer in
some animals," he said. "From there,
we must extrapolate exactly how
strong the cancer-causing agent is in
rats, and then relate it to how potent it
is in people."
Bladder cancer, like all other can-
cers, has a "latency period" lasting
from 20 to 50 years, during which the
cancer "lies dormant." "Since sac-
charin did not come into popular use
until about 1950, you wouldn't expect
many cases to even begin showing up
until right about now," he explained.

Although saccharin is a "suspected
carcinogen," there are several
chemicals-including tobacco smoke
and vinyl chloride-known to increase
the cancer rate in people exposed to
To minimize the risk of cancer from
these and other chemicals, Vander ad-
vises eating a widely varied diet and
cutting down on exposure to man-made
chemicals "as muchas possible
without making it a fetish.
"Not all environmental changes are'
bad," he said. "In fact, the incidence of
stomach cancer has decreased in
recent years, and this can only be due to
an environmental change.

Weekend muggings
A 26-year-old woman was mugged
Saturday night while walking through
an alley in the 100 block, of E.
Washington. Police reported that they
apprenhended a 20-year-old suspect af-
ter the attack. He had tried to grab her
purse, she told police, and she resisted.
He then hit her over the head with a
wine bottle, knocking her to the ground.
He continued to beat her with the bottle
and his fists when she screamed and
people nearby came to help her,
causing him to flee. The suspect was
arrested later that evening on the 800
block of State St., and is being held in
Washtenaw County jail.
A University student was the victim
Sunday of another mugging and was
robbed of $2. While walking through an
alley in the 300 block of Maynard, he

was confronted by four male suspects,
but he was not hurt.
A third mugging occurred Sunday af-
ternoon on Braeburn Cr. near I-94,
when a 10-year-old was robbed at
knifepoint of his skateboard.
Cars shot at
Within a 10-minute period Saturday
night, three cars were shot at on West-
bound I-94 east of Scio-Church, police
believe. A motorist said as he passed
two men on the embankment something
smashed his front passenger window.
Another driver reported that his rear
passenger window smashed as he
passed the same spot. A third driver on
W. Liberty told police that his car was
hit, and that glass fragments struck a
passenger in the face.
Robberies reported
One hundred dollars was taken from
the coin machine of the bowling alley in
the Michigan Union, 530S. State Friday
night. Campus Jewelers, 719 N. Univer-
