Harvard band cleans up its act

The Harvard marching band's half-
time shows will have to have university
approval from now on, administrators
said earlier this month.
Harvard Dean of Students Archie
Epps will review the content of the
shows every week beforethe football
games in an attempt to eliminate
"vulgarity" and "in-group jokes,"
which have drawn fire from students
and alumni.

Epps and leaders of the 150-member
band have been meeting for the last 18
months to formulate new guidelines for
the performances, according to band
minager Chris Clark. The band began
using the new rules at the Oct. 1 game
against Army.
"Our shows were not appealing to a
broad enough base," Clark said, since
many of the band's segments were
jokes or social commentaries that some
fans, particularly the alumni, could not
-Epps stressed that the new rule was
not a direct result of the band's Sept. 24
show at the University of Massachuset-
ts, game, when the band played "Only
the Good Die Young" and "Live and Let
Die" during segments about attacks on
Marines in Lebanon and the recent
Korean Airlines jet crash.
The show also included a segment
about the food at the student union,
where Harvard freshmen eat their
nals, in which the band spelled out the
work "puke" on the field.
Epps said that although the Sept. 24
show brought in a few telephone calls

from disgruntled fans, he was already
planning to review shows and simply
instituted the rule more quickly than he
had originally intended.
Clark said that the band did not in-
tend to "make fun of the dead people"
in the jet crash and Lebanon segments
of the show, but added that the halftime
planners were "guilty of a lack of per-
ception" of how fans would react.
He also blamed a faulty sound system
for the uproar, saying that fans could
not hear the announcer's commentary
criticizing the Soviet Union's downing
of the Korean jet and the U.S.' decision
to leave the Marines in Lebanon.

Cornell seniors won't
link gift to divestment
A group of Cornell University studen-
ts has failed to convince some senior
class members to use their annual
charity gift to protest the school's in-
vestments in corporations doing
business in South Africa.
The South African Divestment
Coalition approached the senior class
gift committee earlier this month to ask
that the $25,000 gift fund be set aside in
a special bank account, until the
university agrees to divest from its
holdings in South Africa.
The proposal also suggested that the
class give the interest from the account
to groups fighting for the university's
Buttthe committee turned down the
group's request last week, deciding to
split the money between funds fora new
campus performing arts center and
"The (divestment) proposal is very
sketchy," said David Bronsteen, co-
chairman of the gift committee. "We
can't afford to sit back and try to work
through their proposal when they
haven't spent the time to research it."

Bronsteen said more than 150 groups
and causes were under consideration
for the gift, which was earned through
class fund raisers.
A spokeswoman for the coalition said
the group has other plans to push for
divestment, although she added that
the class gift would have been a good
first step.
"We wanted to make a statement
with this gift," said Ruby Saake, a
coalition member. "We know the
school won't take their $50 million out of
these companies just because of
$25,000, but at least it's a start."

Surgeons at Yale-New Haven
Hospital successfully reattached the
penis of a 32-year-old man who am-

putated the organ while using a circular
saw, hospital officials reported.
Dr. Charles Cuono, who headed.the
team that performed the eight-hour
operation, said the man was doing
"remarkably well" and should be
discharged in about a week.
Thr Bridgeport man, who doctors did
not identify, stands "at least a 50-50
chance his sexual function will be
restored," Cuono said.
Cuono said the accident occurred as
the man was cutting wood in his
basement after work on Oct. 3 He
rested a board on his knee and the saw
bound up and kicked back.

German protesters block U.S.
bases in anti-nuclear campag
KAISERSLAUTERN, West Germany-Anti-nuclear demonstrtors
blockaded two U.S. military bases yesterday in a nationwide protest against
the deployment of American missiles at the end of the year.
The demonstrators heeded a police warning to clear the road leading to an
Army depot believed to contain nuclear munitions near Kaiserslautern.
But at the port of Bremerhaven, 200 miles north of Kaiserslautern, police
forced the protesters off the highway to open the way for trucks carrying
supplies for 250,000 U.S. military personnel in West Germany.
The anti-nuclear movement, predicting it would draw 3 million demon-
strators into the streets in a 10-day campaign against the American missiles,
planned to extend the blockades to three other U.S. facilities today.
Demonstrators also planned to form a four-mile long human chain today
between the U.S. and Soviet embassies in Bonn.
New Korean cabinet named
SEOUL, South Korea - President Chun Doo-hwan named a new prime
minister and 11 cabinet members yesterday in a shake-up of the South
Korean government prompted by a weekend bombing that killed 21 people,
including four cabinet ministers.
The shake-up was announced hours after the Cabinet headed by Prime
Minister Kim Sang-Hyup resigned to give Chun a free hand in reorganizing
the government. Chun also announced replacements for his presidential
secretary and senior presidential economic adviser, both killed in the blast.
The bombing took place in Burma Sunday as top Korean leaders were
visiting a cemetery in the capital of Rangoon. Twenty-one people were
killed, including 17 Koreans.
South Korea has blamed Communist North Korea for the attack. U.S.
Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger said in Washington there was
"strong" circumstantial evidence of North Korean involvement.
Communist party warns Polish
church to stay out of politics
WARSAW, Poland - The Communist Party Politburo yesterday warned
the Roman Catholic Church to stay out of politics and told party members to
be more sympathetic to the grievances of Polish workers.
A report drafted by the 15-member Politburo and read at a Central Com-
mittee meeting also confirmed there are serious divisions within the 2.3
million-member party.
The two-day Central Committee meeting that opened yesterday is the first
since the June visit of Pope John Paul II, a trip widely seen as a show of sup-
port for the banned labor union Solidarity. It is also the first Central Com-
mittee meeting since the lifting of martial law in July.
Politburo member Jozef Czyrek, reading the report, said the church
must not meddle in politics with "militant clericalism" and "instigatory
pronouncements which have nothing to d with religion." He did not specify
which church activities he opposed, but the church has consistently backed
Solidarity and priests sometimes give sermons which the government con-
siders critical of the state.
Marcos announces new panel
to study Aquino assassination
MANILA, Philippines - President Ferdinand Marcos yesterday announ-
ced creation of a new commission to investigate the killing of opposition
leader Benigno Aquino as thousands of Filipinos demonstrated for the ouster
of the "U.S.-backed regime."
Marcos, in his first public appearance in a week, told a nationwide
television audience members of the new commission would be named by
parliament Monday. A previous presidential panel investigating the Aug.21
Aquino assassination resigned last Monday in the face of opposition charges
it was packed with Marcos loyalists.
A coalition of opposition parties, charging high-level complicity in the
Aquino killing, has said it will not accept any investigation until Marcos
The decree establishing the new commission said it would consist of two
members appointed by parliament and three to five more "appointees from
among the recommendees of the various sectors of society such as legal
associations, civic and service organizations and the business, education,
student and labor sectors."
State sets crucial recall vote
LANSING - The secretary of state's office yesterday scheduled a Nov. 30
recall election against Sen. David Serotkin - a vote which could determine
the political control of the Michigan Senate.
Serotkin is now the second senator scheduled to face an ouster vote for
casting a vote last spring to raise the state income tax.
The state election office certified that the group seeking the Mount
Clemens Democrat's removal had collected 20,722 valid signatures from
registered district voters. That is about 2,000 more than the 18,334 the group
needed to force the vote.

State Elections Director Christopher Thomas said Serotkin waived the
eight days given recall targets to challenge the validity of petition
The Serotkin election will come one week after Sen. Phil Mastin, (D-
Pontiac) becomes the first state legislator in Michigan history to face a
recall vote. Mastin's fate is considered key to the success or failure of future
recall drives and elections.


U.S. may
WASHINGTON (UPI) -- The United
States has developed a secret plan to
equip a Jordanian brigade as a mobile
strike force that could intervene in in-
ternal crises in Persian Gulf states;
Pentagon officials, congressional and
diplomatic sources said yesterday.
The administration refused to confirm
or deny the existence of the proposal
but the officials and sources said $225
million has been hidden in this year's
$251 billion defense budget to carry out
the program.
A congressional source described the
overall intention of the plan as a means
of ;getting around Israeli and
congressional opposition to moder-

arm strike force in Jordan

nizing the Jordanian armed forces, a
goal long sought by Jordan's King
Disclosure of the U.S. plan comes
against a backdrop of renewed concern
'that Iran may try to close the Straits of
Hormuz, the gateway to the Persian
Gulf that is the exit route for oil tender
traffic to the West and Japan. The ad-
ministration has pledged to use
military forced, if necessary to keep the
straits open.
For that purpose, they said, the
United States would sell Jordan some
C-130 transport aircraft, light helicop-
ters and bridging equipment. The
bridges would be used to ford the dry

river beds, called wadis, that are com-
mon to desert areas.
"Basically, it would be used to
prevent a takeover of a regime by ex-
tremist elements," a diplomatic source
The United States would retain con-
trol over how Jordan used the strike
force by withholding all of the required
transport aircraft needed to airlift a full
brigade and its equipment, diplomatic
sources said. U.S. transport planes
would undertake much of the airlift.
"Jordan will have to request U.S.
logistical support to fly to the theater of
operations. This way, (Jordan's)

capability to project strength and
power can be controlled," one source
The plan does not include Jordanian
purchases of advanced U.S. F-16
fighters and improved mobile Hawk an-
tiaircraft missile batteries, Pentagon
officials said. But congressional and
diplomatic sources said any reap-
mament of Jordan would "open the
door" to purchases of more advanced

a former Marine lieutenant colonel,
was the most likely person to replace
THE SOURCE said Clark was
pushing for McFarlane to move up to
the No. 1 job.
U.N. Ambassador Jeane kirkpatrick,
56, highly regarded by many of
Reagan's more conservative backers,
was considered the other leading can-
Speakes pointed out that Clark had
served as the chief of Reagan's guber-
natorial staff in California, was twice
appointed to California court positions,
had served as deputy secretary of state,
"has a personal rapport with the
president," is the son and grandson of
forest rangers, and has "a lifelong in-
terest 'in issues of concern to the In-
terior Department.
THE SPOKESMAN said that Clark,
and Reagan's other top staff members,
were consulting with the president
about the decision on Friday. Those in-
volved in the discussions were said to
include chief of staff James Baker III;
deputy staff chief Michael Deaver, and
presidential counselor Edwin Meese
"The president will make the
decision; he'll talk to whomever he'd
like," Speakes said.
The president's national security ad-
viser has for several administrations
played a key role in the formulation of
foreign policy, competition- often suc-
cessfully - with the secretary of state
for the president's attention. It was
from that job that Henry Kissinger
moved to the State Department during
the Nixon administration. .Zbigniew
Brzezinski often eclipsed Jimmy Car-
ter's two secretaries of state, Cyrus
Vance and Edmund Muskie.

would not mean a change in foreign
policy, stating "foreign policy is set in
the Oval Office" and the national
security adviser works at the
