for

mis behavior

AMHERT, Mass. (AP) - A six-foot
phallic ice statue on the front lawn of
"Delta House" at Amherst College
reflected the attitude of the members of
e first fraternity in more than a
decade to be disbanded for misbehavior
at the exclusive liberal arts college.
After authorities found a number of
stolen articles inside the fraternity,
College President Julian Gibbs decreed
last week that Delta Upsilon Delta "will
cease to exist or to operate as a frater-
nity or social organization, effective
immediately."
THE FRATERNITY, which had 22
men and five women members, had
een on disciplinary probation since
November when four membes were
arrested during its annual "scavenger
hunt" on a variety of charges including
disorderly conduct and larceny.
Police said they recovered 90 items
from the house, including - furniture,
paintings, silverware, a headless
skeleton, two stuffed roosters, a moose
head and a motorcycle taken from area
colleges and businesses.
Erwin Nussbaum, dean of students,
said yesterday, "Please don't refer to it
as "Delta House, that was the name of
the fraternity in that movie, (Animal
House.) There should be no
correlation."
BUT SOME DELTAS conceded that

the moniker "Animal House" has been
hung on their former organization by
their fellow students, and not without
reason.
"Alot of things we did were pretty
stupid, but some of them were really
funny," one fraternity member, who
asked not to be identified, said yester-
day.
Gibbs' decision to disband Delta Up-
silon was based on the report of an ad
hoc committee of four faculty members
and three students.
THE COMMITTEE found the at-
mosphere of Delta Upsilon "seems to
be defiant, self-assertive and defensive,
as reflected we believe in such joint en-
terprises as constructing a six-foot high
phallic ice sculpture on the fraternity's
front lawn, and marching en masse to
another house to rectify, by physical in-
tervention, an alleged wrong to a
'brother.' ".
"We didn't do it," Kiley said of the of-
fending sculpture, claiming the current
Deltas were being punished for the
misdeeds of previous members who
graduated several years ago.
"I've never heard of anything so
totally reprehensible," he delcared
with only a hint of a giggle. "I can't
imagine any self-respecting Amherst
student doing anything like that."

WASHINGTON, - The Reagan ad-
ministration announced yesterday it is
putting $55 million more in U.S.
military hardware into El Salvador to
swing the balance in the "decisive bat-
tle" now being waged against leftist
guerrillas.
The shipments, from Pentagon
emergency stockpiles, are being sent
by President Reagan under special
authority he can invoke when he
believes U.S. national security is
threatened.
REAGAN USED the same powers to
send 76 American advisers to El
Salvador last March, of when 49 are
still in the country. The president has
repeatedly said Soviet and Cuban-
inspired subversion is jeopardizing the
entire Caribbean basin.
The new aid was revealed amid
reports that Salvadoran troops had
killed abut 20 people - officially
described as "urban guerrillas" - in a
raid on a house in the capital city of San
Salvador. The news fueled additional
concern among human rights ad-
vocates opposed to further American
aid.
The army denied yesterday that it
massacred innocent civilians in the
capital, claiming troops had conducted
a regular anti-guerrilla operation and
were fired on at leftist hideouts.
THE MILITARY said five soldiers
were wounded in the fighting.
Residents of the poor neighborhood
claim the civilian victims were dragged
out of their homes and shot to death.
"What the family members say are
falsehoods," army spokesman Col.
Eusebio Coto said of survivors' claims

that the sweep was an "unprovoked
massacre."
Relatives of the victims, most of
whom were men and women in their
teens or early 20s, told a different story.
A WOMAN SAID her daughter was
shot after soldiers dragged the girl
from her home. Another claimed her
three daughters were raped before they
were shot.
Judicial officials said none of the vic-
tims' relatives had complied with a
judge's request to show up in court
yesterday to sign affidavits repeating
their charges that the victims were shot
in cold blood and not in combat.
"The relatives fear reprisals from
the army, since all the statements they
made yesterday accused the armed
forces," one court official said.

4 guns turned in as handgun ban begins

MORTON GROVE, Ill. (AP) - Two
lderly residents of this affluent suburb
surrendered four weapons to police
yesterday as the nation's only law ban-
ning sale or possession of handguns
took effect.
Village employees said they an-
swered abut 20 telephone calls in the
morning, mostly from news reporters
asking if any guns had been turned in.
THE LAW WAS passed last June 8
and has survived state and federal
court challenges from opponents who
say it violates the constitutional right to
bear arms. All weapons surrendered
will be held for five years in case the
ordinance eventually is overturned.

Jay Frost, a representative of the
East Quad government, said that
*University security receives about 10 to
20 reports each night of incidents of
sexual harrassment - or assaults in
campus dormitories.
SOPHOMORE Susan Marcavage
helped get the question of rape preven-
- tion on the meeting's agenda. She and a
friend, freshwoman Karen Zorn, said
they have been receiving obscene
phone calls, and wanted to raise
questions about campus security
publicly.
S "People need to know what's going
on," Marcayage said. "If you're aware,
you'll know not to take showers alone,
and be less off guard if something does
happen."
"Everyone thinks it's a joke, and it is
in a way," said freshwoman Christine
Miller. "But if something serious hap-
pens . .. No one has been raped yet, but

Police said they expected few guns
would be turned in and they weren't
going out looking for them.
"We haven't some kind of quota to
fill," said Larry Schey, police chief in
this village of 26,000. "We won't be
kicking down doors to get handguns."
MERCHANTS, many of whom op-
posed the ordinance as one which would
strip them of protection against
criminals, said they would wait before
deciding if they needed extra security.
Morton Grove had 189 burglaries last
year, and the last violent use of a han-
dgun here came in 1979 when two teen-
age girls were killed with a pistol.
"We're sitting ducks," said Joe

Harrison, owner of Foremost Liquors.
But he added, 'Being honest, I don't ex-
pect we'll be descended on by
everybody itching to do an armed rob-
bery.A
"WE WON'T change our security
right away," he said, displaying a
metal pipe hidden near one of the
checkout counters, "but I'm waiting to
see what all this will really mean."
Jim Gordon, owner of Dempster All
Sports, the only store here that sells
guns, said, "The ordinance probably
hurt my business by about 10 percent."
He stopped selling handguns after the
law was passed, but the store still
legally sells rifles.

"The NRA (National Rifle
Association) approached me and they
were willing to provide lawyers and
money if I wanted to challenge the law.
VILLAGE POLICE spokesman
Robert Jones displayed the four old
handguns turned in by the two residen-
ts, "none of which I would take a chan-
ce on firing."
"These guys had these laying around
the house," Jones said, "and they
probably didn't want to be bothered
with them."
The law bans the sale and ownership
of handguns by everyne except police,
on-duty military and law enforcement
personnel, licensed antigue gun collec-
tors and the town's only licensed gun
club.
Violators are subject to fines of $10 to
$100 for the first offense, and fines of
$100 to $1,000 and six months in jail for
subsequent offenses.

without afterwards explaining that
decision to the faculty, Nystuen said.
STEINER SAID elimination of the
department will result in an immediate
100,000 becoming available to the
University through personnel and office
costs, with an additional $100,000
becoming available sometime in the
future.
Nystuen, on the other hand, said
claims of financial savings were a bit
exaggerated, because of the money lost
in geography graduate student tuition.
The University lost $100,000 in tuition
funds last year, Nystuen said, adding
that the administration must still pay
S the tenured faculty their full salaries.
The Daily also learned yesterday that
Geography Professor James Clarkson,
the only tenured geography professor to

recently resign, received a "substantial
sum' of severance pay from the
University.
According to sources, a "mutually
agreed upon settlement" was accepted
by Clarkson in his termination
negotiations.
egI think his lawyer and the University
negotiated his termination," said
Steiner.
Steiner refused to comment further
on the termination arrangements and
the exact amount of severance pay is
not known.
