'U' panel
examines
alcohol
abuse
By CHERYL BAACKE
In an effort to combat a lack of
awareness about alcohol abuse, the
University has joined a growing num-
ber of colleges nationwide by forming a
task force to examine the issue.
Getting information to students about
alcohol use and encouraging them to
make responsible decisions about
drinking are the group's main objec-
tives, said panel chairwoman Mandy
Bratton.
THE PANEL, which was formed in
April, also will examine the patterns,
attitudes, and consequences of student
drinking.
"No one wants to start a temperance
society here," said Bratton, building
director of Couzens Hall. "I don't think
anyone is bent on telling someone they
shouldn't drink."
But, she added, "It's dangerous for us

Bo's boys bolt into Badger country

By CHUCK JAFFE
Special to the Daily
MADISON - According to Michigan football coach
Bo Schembechler, last week's 25-24 loss to
Washington is currently floating down the Mississippi
River.
That's where the Michigan coach says he threw it
on the way home from Seattle, in order to clear his
mind and properly prepare for today's game with
Wisconsin.
THIS WEEK, however, the entire Michigan team
could find itself up the river if it loses its Big Ten.
opener to an upset-minded Badger squad at Camp
Randall Stadium.
"(The Washington game) is in the Mississippi,
where I tossed it on the way home," Schembechler
said. "We had to get rid of it in order to get ready for
Wisconsin. They're a good football team and we'll

have to be ready."
But an experienced Wisconsin offense and serious
injuries to Michigan's defense may have left the
Wolverines relatively unprepared for the conference
opener, prompting both coaches to say that the key to
the game will be their respective passing offenses.
"IT'S BEEN A long time since I've seen Michigan
throw for more than they run," said Wisconsin coach
Dave Mclain, whose team has beaten Northern
Illinois and Missouri this season. "They're throwing
the ball really well right now, and Steve Smith is ex-
perienced and healthy. And Michigan always has a
good running game. They're as good as they've
always been."
"I think they will throw the ball against us," said
Schembechler, ignoring the fact that Wisconsin has
run the ball twice as many times as they have passed.
"They're good offensively, they have a good quarter-

back, and we have not been getting a good pass
rush."
Badger quarterback Randy Wright will try to take
advantage of that pass rush and a Wolverine
linebacking corps that has been decimated by in-
juries.
WRIGHT HAS completed 21 of 36 passes for 238
yards this season. Thirteen of those completions have
been to junior split ends Al Toon and Michael Jones.
Tight end Jeff Nault, last year's leading receiver,
balances out the Wisconsin passing attack
by providing a reliable threat over the middle.
The Badger ground game consists primarily of
junior tailback Gary Ellerson, who is averaging 5.7
yards per carry over the first two games.
Defensively, the Badgers play an inexperienced-
but-aggressive squad, led by inside linebackers Jim

BEIRUT, Lebanon - Two U.S. war-
ships and a shore battery blasted anti-
government militia gunners yesterday
after Druse and Shiite Moslem forces
attacked the Marine compound with
mortars, grenades and automatic
weapons. Four Marines were wounded.
Marine spokesman Maj. Robert Jor-
dan said the guided missile cruiser
Virginia opened fire at about 7 p.m., 1
p.m. EDT, and the destroyer Arthur
Radford started shooting about three
hours later to try to silence guns firing
at the Marine base at the Beirut inter-
national airport.
THE "CHARLIE battery" of the.
Marine contingent in the multinational
force also fired a six-round artillery
salvo during the attacks, he said.
Jordan said the wounded Marines
were not seriously hurt. He would not
identify them or say whether the
positions targeted by U.S. fire were
Druse or Shiite Moslem. He said the
Marines were still taking fire "from
both sides" after the retaliatory
barrage.
State-run Beirut radio said rockets
were hitting in and around the Marine
compound at the rate of one every five
seconds.
THE VIOLENCE intensified as effor-
ts to attain a cease-fire in Lebanon's 20-
day-old civil war stalled.
Saudi mediator Rafik Hariri said in

Damascus that "new elements" had
delayed a truce following a meeting
between Druse leader Walid Jumblatt
and Syrian Foreign Minister Abdul-
Halim Khaddam. Hariri did not
elaborate but said he would meet with
Khaddam later.
The Lebanese government had
leaked reports that a Saudi-mediated
truce might be declared by noon today
and that the United Nations had agreed
to provide 600 observers to police a
stand-down.
Jumblatt, whose militiamen have
been battling the Lebanese army in the
Chouf Mountains, said earlier in the
Syrian town of Quneitra that the
multinational force should leave
Beirut.
"THE WAR in Lebanon is not only for
the Chouf Mountains, but for all ,of
Lebanon," Jumblatt told a gathering of
Syrian Druse in the town, which is near
the Israeli-held Golan Heights. "Even if
a cease-fire is reached, this does not
mean the battle is over."
U.S., French, Italian and British con-
tingents were sent to Beirut as a
peacekeeping force more than a year
ago at the government's request to help
the Lebanese army take control of
areas held by private militias.
President Amin Gemayel had plan-
ned to go on television in the evening,

Stanford students call
prof 'Hitler of the 80's'

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - As
protesters marched and accused him of
racism, William Shockley addressed a
small crowd of new Stanford University
students yesterday, one day after the
school apologized for inviting him to
speak.
About 150 people carried banners out-
side the auditorium where about 100
students listened to the speech by
Shockley, who believes society is
evolving backward because blacks are
reproducing too frequently.
UNIVERSITY officials had tried to
get him to decline the invitation, but he
refused. He was one of three Nobel
Prize winners scheduled to deliver lec-
tures about their research Friday.
A physics professor emeritus at Stan-
ford, Shockley shared the 1956 Nobel
Prize in physics for his work on the in-
vention of the transistor. He said he
would not discuss his views on genetics
in his speech Friday.
Shockley believes that blacks are
genetically inferior to whites and that
blacks should be rewarded for allowing
themselves to be sterilized.
"It is obviously very painful for the
black minority," Shockley told repor-
ters before his talk. "The black
minority is the group that it is most im-
portant for my ideas to reach because
they are the segment of the U.S.
population most threatened by
dysgenics."

'Society is evolving backward because of
'excessive reproduction of genetically
disadvantaged. .'

By JODY BECKER
Due to a significant increase in
federal work-study funds, the Univer-
sity's Student Employment Office has
found itself left with almost 1,400 un-
filled positions.
This year the University received
more than $2.6 million for the federally-
funded College Work Study program, a
18 percent increase from last year's
allocation.
BECAUSE the additional funds were
available this year, more positions are
being advertised, University financial
aid officials said.
Under the program, the federal
government picks up 75 percent of an
employee's paycheck.
As of Sept. 16, 1,255 students had been
hired under the work study program,
compared to 914 at the same time last
year, according to Student Em-
ployment Office Director Vivian Hoey.
DURING the first week of school, the
office placed more than 100 students in

DYSGENICS is Shockley's term for
his theory that society is evolving
backward because of "excessive
reproduction of genetically disadvan-
taged."
"Shockley: Hitler of the '80s," read
one of the banners of the protesters who
marched outside Kresge Auditorium.
"Academic racism Is not Intelligent,"
said another.
Economists Milton Friedman and
Kenneth Arrow, both Nobel laureates,
also were scheduled to speak to new
students Friday. Shockley's selection
drew swift and loud protests from
students and faculty, and earlier this
week, Stanford deans encouraged
Shockley to cancel his speech.
"Professor Shockley's inclusion in
the program has proved a grievous af-

front to many faculty and students,"
said James Lyons, dean of students. "I
think it was naive to think his racist
views would be discounted."
SHOCKLEY, 73, said he would con-
fine his speech to transistors. "If I were
to withdraw, it might lead to the con-
clusion that I was losing my nerve with
advancing age. If I were to withdraw, it
might imply a lack of confidence in the
positions I have espoused," Shockley
said.
"My position is that human quality
problems in the United Staes arises
more from disadvantages in genes than
from environmental ones," Shockley
told a Commonwealth Club meeting in
San Francisco in 1974. "We have a
moral obligation to diagnose our
human-quality problems - especially
those of American Negroes."

T HOSE CORNY University of Iowa students,
practicality have really hit on a functional idea,
this time. The University's student senate Thur-
sday night approved a resolution urging school and city of-
ficials to carpet all 185 miles of streets in Iowa City. Mem-
bers of the BAT Party (Beauty, Amiability, and Trustwor-

splash," similar to the annual pool-side fundraiser staged
by Delta Gamma sorority every year. The senate also
passed amendments to the resolution stipulating that the
carpeting should be color-coded to the community's various
neighborhoods - black and gold for the campus area,
yellow near fire hydrants, and pink and lime green around,
the fraternities and sororities. The student senate's
president, who opposed the resolution, denounced the ac-
tion, apologizing for "the immaturity of the majority of the
Iowa student senate." [Q

Barbi Benton, once a flame of the real Hugh Hefner, graces
the cover, and the centerfold is devoted to "Christie Hep-
ner," the daughter of the publisher and president of
Playbore Enterprises. It is no coincidence that Hefner's
daughter Christie holds that job at the real Playboy Enter-
prises. "Playbore in an early birthday present for Playboy
(which celebrates its 30th birthday in November) though
maybe not exactly the birthday present they bargained
for," said Robert Vare, Playbore editor and publisher. Q

Also on this date in history:
* 1971 - The University Commission on Women approved
a personnel file review procedure to help them find possible
cases of salary discrimination against women.
* 1976 - A local record album price war pushed across-
the-board prices to $3.76 per album at Schoolkids Recor-
ds. Distributors predicted competition in the area "could
keep the price this low for 20 years."
* 1981-A dozen University men created a sensation when
they bared almost all for the first "Men of Michigan"
