Bullard may
sponsor bill,
to restrict
hazing rites
By BETH ALLEN
Those who participate in hazing incidents could be liable
for criminal punishment if State Representative Perry
Bullard (D-Ann Arbor) submits a bill to the legislature this
year.
Bullard, who is currently studying the effectiveness of
hazing laws in California, New York, and Wisconsin, and
other states, said Tuesday he is interested in "some
legislative response" to the problem of dangerous initiation
rites.
CONCERN AT THE University about the hazing issue
escalated last fall when five freshman members of the
Michigan hockey team were assaulted by some of their
teammates.
That incident prompted Michigan Student Assembly mem-
bers Kevin Ireland and Lisa Mandel to help search for
solutions to the hazing problem.
Ireland approached Bullard last week with research from
campuses around the country concerning recent hazing in-
cidents that resulted in death or serious injury.
BULLARD NOTED that regulation of hazing is difficult
because participants usually volunteer initially and
suggested that establishing community opposition to hazing
would be one effective method of dealing with the problem.
On another front, a group of University fraternity and
sorority members have been meeting since last April to try to
establish a statement of the University's position on hazing in
the Greek system and campus student organizations.
"We don't want to deal with it after the fact," said Chris
Carlsen, a consultant to student organizations in the Student
Organizations and Activities office, who has been working
with the representatives and MSA members Ireland and
Mandel.
Legislation in other states has been a direct result of hazing
deaths, and Carlsen says the students want to prevent such a
situation here.
The campus group has drafted a preliminary list of unac-
ceptable hazing practices, most of which deal with unusually
harsh mental or physical discomfort. The group currently
proposes that any organization violating the guidelines would
be subject to loss of its privileges as a University-sanctioned
organization.

Reagan

plan

will increase
studentloan
interest rates
From UPI and AP

WASHINGTON-A student who borrowed
$10,000 for college could be hit with $34-a-month
higher repayments for 10 years under the
Reagan administration's proposed curtailment
of subsidized student loans that was outlined to
Congress yesterday.
Such a student's monthly payment would be
$161 instead of $127, Education Secretary Terrel
Bell told a House education subcommittee.
Bell also announced that the suggested Reagan
plan for tax credits to help defray tuition costs
will help parents with children in private schools
.and colleges, but may not extend to public
universities.
THE EXPECTED request for tuition tax
credits-a Reagan campaign theme-is
scheduled to be part of the second-stage tax
program expected later this year.
The Guaranteed Student Loans are now free to
students while they attend classes. The Reagan
administration wants them to pay the 9 percent
interest from day one of the loan.
The student who borrowed $2,500 a year for
four years could pay $225-a-year in interest
during college and keep his repayments after
graduation to $127-a-month.
BELL, IN appearances before the House

Education and Labor subcommittee on post-
secondary education and later before the House
Budget Committee, defended the ad-
ministration's efforts to rein in student loan and
grant programs that he said "no longer serve
only the truly needy."
Eligibility for Basic Educational Opportunity
Grants would be cut off at roughly $21,000 income
for a family of four instead of the current $25,000,
and students from families making between
$11,000 and $21,000 would get smaller grants.
Discussing the proposed educational tax
credit, Bell confirmed that "it will be part of the
total tax package. The magnitude of tuition tax
credits, how they will be applied and what level
of education they will be applied to has yet to be
worked out." ,
ASKED BY A reporter to clarify that remark,
Bell said there is agreement in the ad-
ministration that parents of students in private
elementary, secondary and college programs
should be eligible for the tax benefits.
But he said it has not been decided if the paren-
ts of students at public-state and
local-colleges, which have lower tuition
because they already are partially subsidized by

Cup of

cancer?

New study links coffee drinking to illness

BOSTON (AP)-People who drink a cup or two of
coffee a day are nearly twice as likely as non-
drinkers to get cancer of the pancreas, and coffee
drinking may cause more than half of the 20,000
deaths a year from this disease, a Harvard study
concludes.
But the researchers said that although they found a
strong link between coffee drinking and the fourth
most common fatal malignancy in the United States,
there was no proof that coffee actually causes the
disease. They stopped short of advising people not to
drink it.
THE RESEARCHERS found no association bet-
ween tea drinking and pancreatic cancer, suggesting
that caffeine-the stimulant found in coffee, tea and
some colas-was not a factor.
Spokesman David Kuhnert at the National Coffee
Association in New York said the trade group's own

animal research had found no correlation between
coffee drinking and any form of cancer.
The Harvard researchers found that people who
drink up to two cups of coffee a day have 1.8 times the
risk of cancer of the pancreas as non-drinkers. The
risk grows to 2.7 times normal for those who drink
three cups or more.
THE COFFEE association estimates that the
average American over age 10 drinks two cups of cof-
fee a day.
The pancreas is a gland behind the stomach that
produces digestive juices and contains cells that
make insulin. When this organ becomes cancerous,
the outlook is poor, because the disease often is ad-
vanced by the time it is discovered. The American
Cancer Society says that less than 10 percent of the
victims survive for five years.
Dr. Brian MacMahon, the study's director, said the

researchers felt that if people were concerned about
a possible like between coffee and pancreas cancer,
"they should know there isat least a suspicion of this.
But I don't think it's time to put on the missionary
role yet."
MACMAHON IS HEAD of the epidemiology depar-
tment at the Harvard School of Public Health. The
study was published in today's edition of the New
England Journal of Medicine.
"This association should de evaluated with other
data," the researchers wrote. "If it reflects a causal
relation between coffee drinking and pancreatic can-
cer, coffee use might account for a substantial por-
tion of the cases of this disease in the United States.
The doctors based their findings on interviews with
patients At 11 large hospitals in the Boston area and
Rhode Island.

SLawyer:
Salvador
govt a
' goon-
squad'

By DAVID SPAK
Calling the current government in El
Salvador a "fascist goon squad running
around with American arms," a mem-
ber of the National Lawyers Guild said
last night the United States should im-
mediately halt aid to that Central
American nation.
- Robert Hilliard, a staff member of
the liberal Guild, told a Hutchins Hall
audience of almost 100 people that con-
tinuing aid could lead to a "planned
mass genocide of the popular
revolutionary movement" in El
Salvador that might spread to neigh-
boring nations such as Guatemala.
HILLIAD visited the civil war torn
country last September with the Guild
at the invitation of the legal aid bureau
of the San Salvadoran archdiocese.
During his one week stay, he said he
spoke with many Salvadorans who
were tired of the "repressive military

junta"'currently in power.
He said he believes if current U.S. aid
is canceled or stopped, the "popular
Revolutionary Democratic Front will
topple the current military gover-
nment."
Before Hilliard's speech, entitled "El
Salvador: Another Vietnam?" the
Lawyer's Guild presented a 30-minute
slide show briefly recapping the past
fifty years of what the Guild calls
military rule in that country.
THE SLIDE SHOW said the
"revolution has been brewing in El
Salvador since 1932," and the current
uprising is only the culmination of ef-
forts to achieve democratic reforms
since that time.'
The presentation highlighted the
problems of the last few years, in-
cluding the murder of several clergy
members-especially of Archbishop
Oscar Romero last year-the "so-

called land reform," and "the
slaughter of thousands of innocent
Salvadorans."
Hilliard noted that over the past year
and a half, two sets of civilian members
of the government resigned because
they could not make inroads into the
military domination of the government.
THE CURRENT civilian leadership
is headed by former-leader of the.
populist movements Jose Duarte.
When questioned if the fact that the
liberal Duarte was part of the gover-
nment signaled the good intentions of
the Salvadoran government, Hilliard
said the revolutionary movement had
"moved past Duarte because he was in
exile for eight years" after he lost elec-
tions in 1972.
Hilliard also said he did not believe
reports that the leftists fighting the

Israeli journalist Ze'ev Schiff has
more to worry about than meeting
deadlines for his Tel Aviv
newspaper.
He knows, for instance, never to
mention the number of settlements
along the Israeli border because the
information could be useful to
enemies.
ISRAELI LAW requires a review
of all military articles by a gover-
nment censor before they are
published. But after years of ex-
perience, Schiff is aware of what is
acceptable, so the censor's pencil
doesn't bother him too much.
The 49-year-old reporter is in town
this week as a guest of the American
Zionist Federation in cooperation
with the World Zionist Organization

Department of Information.
"When the story touches secrets,
the enemy will learn from the
newspaper article and use it for
operations against Israel," Schiff
commented in an interview yester-
day. "The censor has a right to take.
out lines. But it's not'so black and
white what will be removed-it's
open to discussion."
BEHIND HIS glasses, Schiff looks
like a wise man who has seen much
in his 20 years as a reporter for the
newspaper Ha'aretz. He has written
about Vietnam, Cambodia, the En-
tebbe rescue, and the Six Day war.
Schiff, considered to be one of the
most authoritative military com-
mentators in Israel, discussed the
