Conservatives get paper

They're here. The first publication at
the University with a conservative
staff. They're promising a November
publication date. They're the Michigan

chaic liberal establishment," Tom
Fous, the founder of the publication
also promises to allow a broad range of
opinion into the paper, including those
frm the left.
"WE WANT to maintain some jour-
nalistic integrity," said Fous, a
mechanical engineering student.,
"We are not a newspaper, it's a
review, a scholarly piece," Fous said.
Initially shunning traditional adver-
tising, the Review plans to solicit
money from conservative groups and
Fous admits that the first issue is not
yet paid for, and said there are several
possible contributors he has not heard

University Prof. Paul McCracken, con-

Interest, have all given their support,

while the editorial staff is staunchly
conservative, the publication will at-

An eight-page tabloid, the Review
will be dropped in strategic locations
around campus after the elections,
Fous said, and eventually distributed to

been completely determined; but Fous
said there would be a left - right debate
and a piece on education. "We will be
reprinting a considerable amount of ar-
ticles," Fous said.
"The scope is going to be not so much
on issues just pertinent to Ann Arbor,
we are aiming to a larger audience,"

Deadline for insurance extended

Rabbi warns against 'New Right'
WDVy BrEH ALLEIN ,
The University has extended the deadline for enrollment in
its student accident and insurance plan.
Students now have until Oct. 15 to consider enrolling in the
rlan, contrary to information sent to students before fall
erm began, when the deadline was listed as Aug. 24.
| DAN PLANTE, student insurance committee coordinator,
said that the deadline has been extended because the Univer-
sity was late in providing student address labels to Mutual of
Omaha, underwriters of the new insurance policy.
Mutual of Omaha was selected from approximately a
ozen bidders to replace G-M Underwriters, who had
rovided the University-endorsed student insurance policy
for nine years.
Plant said that the main difference in the two plans was the
elimination of the alternate health plan. The new policy of-
fers only one package (with an option for accidental death or
dismemberment benefits, as in the old plan) with somewhat
broader coverage as opposed to the two package old plan.
A PACKAGE is a series benefits put together in a policy.
The new plan treats pregnancy as any illness; increases
the maximum benefits from $15,000 to $20,000; increases out-
patient coverage from $200 per year to $200 per incident; and
ds a nine-month waiting period for students with pre-
existing conditions, in order to prevent students from making
immediate claims on a policy, which causes premiums to in-
Despite student requests in a survey taken last winter
berm, the insurance committee did not add eye and dental
care to the package this year.
HEALTH SERVICES Patient Relations Director Ellie Puf-
fe, a menber of the insurance committee, said that the
committee members decided that including eye and dental
care benefits would have driven thi premium up, as the high
number of claims would raise the cost of the premiums.
"It would have boosted the premium to such extravagant
costs that it would be out of the students' price range," Puffe
Although Health Services does not carry free dental ser-
vice, Puffe said that the University dental clinic now
operates a low-cost clinic within the Health Services
IN ADDITION to providing broader benefits, the new plan
has also evened up the premiums between the three Univer-
sity campuses, unlike the previous policy in which Flint and
Dearborn campus students paid a slightly higher premium
because they do not assess a health service fee, Plante'said.
The change in companies has also meant a change in the
administrative procedures, according to Plante. Insurance
records will be kept and processed at Health Service, instead
of at the Michigan Student Assembly offices as in previous
"It's a lot more convenient from MSA's standpoint to have
the files at Health Services," MSA President Amy Moore
said. Mutual of Omaha now hires a coordinator to handle the
insurance instead of requiring MSA's staff to keep the recor-
ds, she added.

The political "New Right" threatens to
undermine the very principles on which
the United States was founded, accor-
ding to the leader of the Voice of
Reason, a nationwide civil liberties
Rabbi Sherman Wine, the co-founder
of the Voice of Reason, charged last
night that New Right politicians, like
Sen. Jesse Helms (R. N.C.), seek to
dismantle the American tradition of
separation of church and state.
"THE NEW Right is a radical way to
create an authoritarian state," Wine
tole about 150 students gathered lat
night in the Michigan Union. "They
threaten to change the very nature of
In particular, the leader of 6,000-
member group blasted Helms for his
attempts to push through legislation
outlawing abortion and reinstating
prayer in public schools.
"Helms introduced a whole series of
social issues to divert the American
people from the real issue, the
economic issue," Wine said.
WINE CALLED Helms's proposal to
reverse the Supreme Court's 1973
decision legalizing abortion a "court-
stripping" measure designed to alter
the court's role as designated in the
constitution. Excessive government
involvement in abortion interferes with
personal privacy and freedom, Wine
He also criticized Helm's proposal
supporting individual and group prayer
in public schools. "Whyare we getting
so excited about a little school prayer?
Because of the power of intimidation."
Wine insisted that teacher-led group
prayer would pressure children to con-
form to the majority's religious beliefs,
thus undermining the separation of
church and state. Rather than allowing
for individual religious expression,
Wine said, the New Right wants to
promote a "majority" religion. "If that
were the case, then you would have a
town meeting at the University every
morning to determine how every
student should act."
WINE BELIEVES the New Right
wants to dismantle Thomas Jefferson's
dream of a secular state in which in-
dividual liberty and majority opinion

Another friend of accused Economics
Building arsonist Arthur Arroyo
testified yesterday that Arroyo admit-
ted setting the Christmas Eve, 1981
After the proceedings, defense attor-
ney Mitchell Nelson said he probably
will bring in psychological testimony
into the case and that insanity would
play a prominent role in his defense.
ABDULLAH Al-Hosan, a friend of
Arroyo's who testified at the request of
Assistant Washtenaw County
Prosecuting Attorney Robert Cooper,
said Arroyo confessed a few days after
Christmas to setting the 125-year-old
building on fire.
"He (Arroyo) said 'I cannot lie to
you, I lit the fire in the Economics
Building,' " Al-Hosan testified.
"He said he broke a window and set
the fire, but said he didn't mean (the
fire) to be that big," Al-Hoan continued.
"He said he thought someone else in
the building helped make the fire that
"HE WAS SORRY for doing it," Al-
Hosan added. "He said he didn't want
to (set the fire) and didn't know why he
had done so.
After the day's proceedings, Nelson
said he would take a three pronged ap-
proach to Arroyo's defense.
"First, we contend that his intent
was to burn small items in the building,
not the whole structure. That's arson
personal property, not ARson real
property (which Arroyo is being
charged with). Those are two different
"SECOND, insanity. Arthur
Arroyo's behavior that evening was a
psychotic episode that was triggered
and sent him off uncontrollable.
"And third, that the building was not
fire safe in the first place; that no ac-
celerant was used."
