Idaho rep. indicted
for ethics violation

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - Rep. George Han-
sen (R-Idaho) was indicted yesterday,
on charges he failed to report on his
ethics statement personal loans from,
silver magnate Nelson Bunker Hunt
and from a convicted blackmailer.
Hansen was accused of failing to
disclose an $87,475 profit he and his wife
turned on the silver futures market in
just two days and loans totalling
$246,000 from Texas billionaire Hunt,
*rom a man recently convicted of swin-

dling a southern Virginia bank and
from the man's lawyers.
Hansen is a flamboyant figure in the
House who once undertook a personal
mission to Iran during the Carter ad-
ministration to attempt to free U.S.
hostages held there.
If convicted, the seven-term House
member would face up to five years in
jail and a $10,000 fine on each count.
In 1975, the Idaho Republican pleaded
guilty to campaign law violations and
was sentenced to two months in jail.

By GEORGEA KOVANIS
The United States is unqualified to
serve as a mediator in the Middle East
because of its strong biases, a
Palestinian Liberation Organization
representative told about 130 people at
Rackham amphitheater yesterday.
"The United States, by its own ad-
mission, is neither even-handed nor
fair," said Hassan Rahman, a PLO
representative. "Reagan speaks to the
Israelis and he does not speak to us."
HE SAID THE president's policies
toward the Middle East reflect only
what is suited for the best interest of the
United States which does not
necessarilycoincide with that of the
PLO.
Rahman said there isn't peace in the
Middle East because "the rights of the
Palestinian people are not respected."
But, he added, the PLO is an example of
the will and perseverance of , the
Palestinian people to exist as a nation.
Ultimately, however, Rahman said
he believes the PLO will triumph.
"Those who engage in the character

assassination of the PLO . . . for the
purpose of denying the Palestinians
their basic human rights - they are not
going to succeed."
In order for peace to exist in the Mid-
dle East, he said, Israel must withdraw
from lands it has occupied since 1967,
except for those allowed by United
Nations resolutions. He added that the
United States must deliver on its
promise to get the Israelies out of
Lebanon.
"If the United States is serious about
peace then they have to act in that
manner," Rahman said, adding that
the Mid-East crisis is worsening. "I
don't think the situation has ever been
as acute as it is now."

MSA still waits to
hear election results

(Continued from Page 1)
determined at press time last night, but
those working with the computer
tabulation system suggested the culprit
was a miscalculation in the time needed
to scan the ballots of simply mismarked
ballots that slowed down the scanning
process.
Last year, without the benefit of a com-
puter, it took election officials only one
day to determine presidential and vice
presidential winners.
THIS YEAR, however, some students
filled out the computer ballots incorrec-
tly by checking-off candidate's names
on the sides of the form instead of the
proper squares. Although only a few
ballots were mismarked, election
director Bruce Goldman said, the com-
puter could not quickly read the for-
ms.
Vice presidential candidate for the
British Humour Party Laurie Clement
agreed that the wait was making her
anxious, but after two weeks of cam-

paigning, she said she had to turn her
thoughts back to homework.
Clement complained that the private
computer tabulation system "removed"
students from the excitement and'in-
volvement that highlighted the final
moments of past elecitons.
"The system is anti-climatic," said
Mary Rowland, presidential candidate
for It's Our University.
For the presidential candidates, the
highlight of the election came from
working with party members to gain
student support at polling sites.
Rowland said her party members
pulled together for a last minute
promotion at the Undergraduate
Library last night. Working through to
the last poll closed at the library at 11
p.m. "gave me a really close feeling,"
she said.
Marc Dann, presidential candidate
for ACT, said his party held together
through the campaign drives at polling
sites. Their efforts, he said, "made me
feel good."

WIN Bulletin
(Continued from Page 1)
"The executive officers have never
been unhappy with the WIN Bulletin for
the anti-salary situation," Nordby said.
"No one who has expressed criticism
has been criticized back."
The newsletter, which has been
published for almost 14 years, receives
all of its $1,100 annual budget from the
affirmative action office.
NORDBY SAID yesterday the
newsletter's funds were put on hold
from December until now because the
bulletin needed to establish publishing
guidelines.
"There was ambiguity about who was
going to handle the copy. It was too
much of a burden (for the affirmative
action staff) to handle," she said.
Stanczak said she submitted these
'guidelines to Nordby in February. She
said she learned last month that they

back n prmt
had been aproved and that the bulletin
would receive funds to publish two
more issues.
THE BULLETIN is staffed by women
employed throughout the University.
Bulletin staff member Karen
Donahue said she was glad to see that
the salary article was not an issue.
"We're getting a lot of support (frm the
administration). It is real important to
me that we're able to do what we do,
she said.
Now that the funding issue has been
decided, the bulletin can concentrate on
improving distribution and increasing
circulation, Stanczak said. This is im-
portant, she said, because "more than
ever, there are women's issues to be
discussed."
Stanczak said she did not know exac-
tly when the bulletin's next issue would
be published.
