yesterday called on Hassan to lift a
"virtual news blackout."
In a letter, the 2,000-strong group of
editors' and journalists said the
blackout "is a complete negation of the
principles of free flow of news and a
serious infringement upon the freedom
of the press and the freedom of ex-
pression."
In his Sunday night address on
national television and radio, the king
canceled scheduled food price hikes
and denied - rumors of increased
education fees, saying all primary and
secondary education in Morocco would
'remain free.
WIDESPREAD rumors of increases
in both areas had fanned the flames in
this normally placid North African
Arab nation.
Concern over increasing the price of
basic foodstuffs had only weeks before
shaken Tunisia, whose people, like
those in Morocco, enjoy a greater
amount of personal freedom and
democracy than those in much of the
region.
At least1100 people were reported to
have been killed in Tunisia when a week
Iof riots began last Dec. 29 with the an-
nouncement that the price of bread
would double. President Habib
Bourguiba canceled announced food
price increases on Jan. 6 and was hailed
as a hero.
News of what was taking place in
Tunisia may have touched off the first
demonstrations in Morocco, in Fez and
Marrakesh, where- students had heard
rumors of big examination fees.
Many local police were in Casablan-
ca, called there as added security in
preparation for last week's Islamic
summit conference which Hassan was
hosting.

Parties thrive despite drinking policy

Continued from Page 1)
Julienne Willsey, vice president of
Helen Newberry agrees. "There's hun-
dreds of people here. How can I tell
them all to get in a room?" she said at a
recent party.
TWO STUDENTS at an Alice Lloyd
party Saturday set out to prove that the
rules won't cut down on parties by
taking photographs of the hall packed
with drinkers.
"When you come to college, you're
gonna drink," one said. "There
probably is no effective way of stopping
parties ... unless you want to make an
example of us and bring in the police."
HIS FRIEND looked down at the girl

neit to him and asked, "how old are
you?" When she replies, "18," he says
"uh-oh, then your ass is grass."
She giggles and takes another sip of
her beer.
The mood was similar at East Quad
last week, in a party that lasted until 3
a.m. with drinks in the hall and lounge.
One resident fellow walked by and said,,
"They seem to be enjoying them-
selves." He said he would only interfere
with the party if things got out of hand.
"It just comes down to personal
responsibility," he added.
SCOTT Rickman, an LSA freshman,
doled out spiked punch at the party and

said he hasn't noticed much of a change
since the housing' office released the
seven rules.
"I've been waiting for the initial
crackdown, but nothing has changed
except restricting the scope of the par-
ty," he said.
A freshwoman engineering student at
Alice Lloyd was more outspoken in her
disregard of the rules. "They told us
that we can't advertise that there will
be alcohol at-this party. That's stupid.
Everyone knows there's alcohol at par-
ties."
ALTHOUGH the new rules certainly
aren't bringing dorm parties to an end,
some students say they are changing
the nature of them.
"The rules won't stop people from
drinking, but they'll be a lot smarter
about it," said LSA junior Eric Mazade
at the Couzens party last week
To avoid violating the rule against
collecting money at the entrance to par-
ties, some are beginning to collect
money within the rooms. "We'd like to
break even, but you know how tacky it
is to ask for money," said LSA fresh-
man Todd Beauchamp at a Bursley
Hall party.
"SO WE'D LIKE it if people would
contribute - all we're asking is $2." A
friend stood at the door with a black hat
to collect the money.
At the Alice Lloyd party Saturday,
the hall got around the ban on collecting
money by charging a cover for the
"band." The group turned out to be a
hall resident and some friends playing
in a lounge.
Bill Knox, Alice Lloyd's building
director said he doesn't think alcohol
needs to be such an integral part of
relaxation for students, but added that
"people who are 18, 19, and 20 like to get
together. That's it."
