New group to decide MSIJ gay's case

Jordan ian force to aid Iraq



The question of whether a gay mem-
ber of a Michigan State University
fraternity was unjustly discriminated
against when his fraternity voted to
oust him last year has been turned over
to a special fact-finding committee.
The decision to refer the dispute bet-
ween John Nowak, 20, and the Delta

Sigma Phi fraternity came after earlier
mediation efforts failed.
NOWAK HAD filed charges with
MSU's Anti-Discrimination Judicial
Board last month, after he was suspen-
ded by his fraternity because other
members said his lifestyle was not
compatible with their own.
An attempt to mediate the conflict by
the judicial board fell through, accor-

ding to the board's executive secretary,
Sallie Bright. "The parties were unable
to agree on a settlement," she said.
The fact-finding committee, with
which the decision now rests, was ap-
pointed by the chairperson of the
judicial board, Bright explained. The
committee is made up of one faculty
member, one student, and one staff
After the committee reviews the case
and releases a decision, both parties -
Nowak and the fraternity - will have 14
days to appeal the decision.

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) - King
Hussein, fearing an Iraqi defeat in the
16-month-old war against Iran will
threaten the entire region, has formed a
2,000-man volunteer brigade to fight
alongside the Iraqis.
Jordanian officials .say the special
unit, known as the Yarmouk Force, will
leave for the front in a matter of weeks.
Hussein is expected to personally lead
the expeditionary unit.
HUSSEIN'S MOTIVES have not been
explained officially. Diplomats suggest
that Iraq's fading fortunes on the bat
tlefield since last fall and a recent
Iranian-inspired coup attempt in
Bahrainspurred him to act.
In a recent newspaper interview,
Hussein warned that "the real problem

is that the Iranian menace does not stop
at Iraq but extends to the entire Arab
region, particularly the Persian Gulf
and the Arab peninsula."
A high-ranking Jordanian official,
who declined to be identified, said in
another interview the war options had
been reduced to only two possibilities:
an Iranian victory or a decisive
breakthrough by Iraq that would force
Iran to negotiate.
