Vowing to overcome the disadvan-
tages she faces as a woman in the male-
dominated state senate, Lana Pollack
(D-Ann Arbor) said last night that
women must assert themselves.
Speaking before an audience of about
30 people gathered at East Quad for the
opening event of Women's Weekend,
Pollock said she has to fight her own
socialization to succeed at her job.
"WOMEN (IN my position) are
playing a role, but told when growing
up to play a different role," she said. "I
will fight, but it's hard."
Pollack said she feels a certain bur-
den when asserting herself. "I don't
want to be thought of as a bitch," she
In the early '60s when she was a
student at the University, Pollack said
she had never heard of the women's
movement. "By the late '60s I laughed
at the notion that I was being
discriminated against," she said.
BUT AFTER returning to her self-
defined middle-class life from a year in
Africa, Pollack said she noticed a
drastic change in women's views of
themselves. "My friends were suddenly
aware of their roles as women in
modern society," she said.
Contrasting blatant discrimination
against women 10 years ago with the
more subtle examples today, Pollack
emphasized the need to modernize the
English language. "Women are still in-
fantiled by men, referred to as 'young
lady,' 'dear, honey.' These are all
childlike names, demeaning the
position of women," she said.
Subtitled "A Celebration of Equality:
What We've Done and Where We're
Going," the event, sponsored by the
East Quad Representative Assembly
and the Residential Hall Association, is
designed to educate both sexes about
The event continues today and
tomorrow with various workshops,
seminars, movies, and a benefit dance.
Topics which will be explored include
racism and anti-semitism in the
women's movement, sexuality, male
violence and battered women, and
Third World women.
Students who attended the lecture
echoed much of what Pollack said.
"The most crucial issue is em-
ployment," said graduate student Jim
Bodner. "Equal access to jobs, equal
access to promotion, regardless of
marriage or parental status."

University officials, however, were
unsure about the details of the plan.

Senators halve defense budget
WASHINGTON. - The Senate Budget Committee, in open defiance of
President Reagan, voted 17-4 yesterday to slash his Pentagon buildup in
half. A "deeply disappointed" Reagan asked it to reconsider, but the panel's
chairman laid blame for the president's defeat at the White House door.
The .committee's plan grants the Defense Department an increase in
spending authority of 5 percent after inflation for fiscal 1984, in contrast to
Reagan's demand for a 10 percent hike.
Reagan's version was first rejected 19-2. An 8 percent option offered by
Sen. John Tower (R-Texas) failed 14-7, before eight Republicans joined nine
Democrats to adopt the 5 percent plan.
At the White House, spokesman Larry Speakes said, "The president is
deeply disappointed by the ... vote on appropriations for the Department of
Defense. It is his hope that a majority of the committee will find a way to
reconsider their action."
Because of the nature of the Pentagon's long-term contracting, the vote
would cut $3.3 billion from Reagan's budget for the year beginning Oct. 1, but
the savings would total nearly $89 billion over five years.
Floods sweep southern states
Rivers bloated by more than a foot of rain swamped the Deep South with
record flooding yesterday, driving 25,000 people from their homes and
isolating the one million residents of New Orleans.
Seven people drowned, including two children swept away by floodwaters,
bringing the death toll to 15 in a week of bizarre weather that began in
The worst flooding in 25 years poured up to 6 feet deep late Wednesday and
early yesterday through the state capital of Baton Rouge, La., and other
towns in southern Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.
National Guard troops helped evacuate residents by boat and helicopter,
mostly in Louisiana where authorities estimated the number of refugees at
Hundreds of roads and highways were under water, making travel vir-
tually impossible, and schools were closed throughout the region.
"We have a list of blocked roads six feet long," said Sgt. Steve Campbell of
the Louisiana state police,
Watt keeps July 4 concert plans
WASHINGTON - Interior Secretary James Watt hurriedly replaced the
capital's welcome mat for the Beach Boys yesterday after being set straight
by one of their favorite "California Girls." And when Nancy Reagan got
done, the president himself put a heavy foot to him.
Reagan, it seems, is a fan of the surfin' sound as much as his wife. So after
learning that Watt had banned the Beach Boys and other rock groups from
the capital's July 4 celebration, he handed the Interior Secretary a plaster of
paris.foot with a hole in it as a stark reminder of what not to do anymore.
Watt, who earlier complained that "hard rock" music had attracted the
"wrong element" to the traditional fireworks extravaganza on the Mall,
proclaimed himself a likely fan of the Beach Boys, whose performances had
drawn hundreds of thousands of people in years past.
He said he still would go ahead with his decision to bring in Las Vegas
crooner Wayne Newton for this year's main event. As for the Beach Boys,
"We'll look forward to having them here to entertain us again, as soon as we
can get that worked out."
FDA okays new contraceptive
WASHINGTON - An over-the-counter contraceptive sponge said to give
24-hour protection for about a dollar and be as safe and effective as a
diaphragm has won Food and Drug Administration approval.
An official of the firm that developed the new device - to be labeled
"Today" - said it will be available in 11 Western states in July and nation-
wide by the fall.
FDA spokeswoman Faye Peterson said yesterday that the contraceptive
sponge was cleared by the agency on April 1 and has an effectiveness rate of
85 percent, roughly the same as for the diaphragm.
Diaphragms, like birth control pills and intrauterine devices, can be ob-
tained only with a doctor's prescription.
According to the company, the contraceptive sponge has no significant
The company sought approval for a 48-hour use of the sponge, but Bellegia
said insufficient data was collected during clinical trials because almost half
of the 2,000 women involved did not keep the sponge inserted for 48 hours.
She said the women found that they didn't need a contraceptive for that long
Soviets call missile plan unfair
WASHINGTON - The United States recently proposed mutual ceilings on
long-range bombers and air-launched cruise missiles, and got a "caustic and
acerbic" Soviet response that the offer was unfair, Reagan administration
officials said yesterday.
"To date the Soviet response in this round has been dilatory and disappoin-
ting," Larry Speakes, the White House spokesman, said in confirming that a
new U.S. proposal was tabled last month in Geneva, Switzerland.
It was the first time the administration formally offered in the talks to im-
pose numerical ceilings on strategic bombers and air-launched cruise
missiles. The United States has an edge in both types of ocean-spanning
An official close to the talks, who declined to have his name disclosed, said
the Soviets insisted that a ban be imposed on all kinds of cruise missiles. He
said the U.S. offer to limit strategic cruise missiles was turned down by
Soviet officials who said they viewed it as nothing more than another move
by the United States to seek nuclear superiority.
