MSA PRESIDENT Mary Rowland,
saying she was glad to know that such a'
clause already existed, added that "a
lot of work needs to be done" in
establishing equality for gay and
lesbian students. She said MSA would
try to "let students know" that this is
part of their constitution.
Jim Toy, gay male advocate for the
University's human sexuality office,
said the success of such a proposal
today if it had made it on the student
ballot, is hard to predict. In 1977, "the
political climate on campus was more
liberal than it is today," he said.
Toy also said that while the increased
conservatism among students might
work against such an amendment, the
increased awareness and education of
students to homosexuality in recent
years could have worked in the amen-

Damascus he had assurances that
Arafat would leave Lebanon under the

"According to the agreement, all the

withdraw except for those who were
already present on our territory
(Tripoli and north Lebanon). Those
may choose to remain," said Karami.

Arafat has been trapped in Tripoli
since Nov. 3 by Syrian-backed guerrilla
mutineers who accuse him of softening
his stance toward Israel. One of his
aides said in Tripoli yesterday that
discussions are under way with Italy
and France to arrange a multinational
escort during the sea evacuation.
