Ted Barnett, editor of the Michigan Review, working in his Michigan League
office, says that the majority of students on campus are actually conser-
"It's not our University," Barnett
explains, "It's a state university. The
University is run by eight regents who
are elected by the taxpayers of the state
of Michigan and students have little in-
fluence in the process."
BARNETT, A computer engineering
senior, is small with neatly cropped
brown curly hair. His taste in clothes -
consistent with his political leanings -
is conservative. Apart from the
Review, Barnett considers himself a
Libertarian, an extreme end of conser-
vatism that opposes all public taxes -
including those which fund state
"Taxation is theft," he says.
YET IN April, Barnett who grew up in
Cincinnati, Ohio, will be the fourth
member of his family to graduate from
the University, one of the country's
largest tax-supported colleges.
"I figure if my father is going to have
to pay taxes, he may as well not be hit
twice with a really high tuition at a
private university," says Barnett.
Barnett started college at Cornell
University in New York, which is par-
tially funded by the state, but he tran-
sferred to the University in the middle
of his sophomore year.
ALTHOUGH Barnett worked at the
Daily his junior year he quickly became
discouraged with the paper's "boring"
"The Daily is kind of a predictable
liberal establishment (The. Opinion
Page editors) never write about
anything interesting. It's just kind of
depressing to me," he says.
Nearly every college across the
nation, from Harvard to Stanford
universities, has started a conservative
newspaper, says Barnett.
That trend reflects a gradual dying
out of liberalism, adds LSA junior

Factions clash in N. Ireland
LONDONDERRY, Northern Ireland -- Roman Catholic youths hurled
gasoline fire bombs and gunmen shot at police and British troops guarding
2,300 protestants at a protest march yesterday, police reported.
They said two policemen were wounded by the fire bombs and a third was
hurt during clashes with Ithe demonstrators, but no one was injured when
gunmen fired about a dozen shots at the security forces.
About 2,300 members of the Protestant Apprentice Boys, the paramilitary'
Ulster Defense Association and other groups marched to protest a British
government decision allowing the Londonderry City Council to change its
name to Derry City Council.
The Protestants oppose the use of the name Derry, which the city was
called before 1613 when Protestants settled in the area and renamed it after
the British capital. The Catholic minority in the British province still use the
old name for the city.
Bomb ell s4ein, Arab nightclub
LONDON - A bomb exploded and started a fire in an Arab nightclub early
yesterday, injuring 23 people only minutes after a bomb blew up outside an
Arab newspaper shop. Police blamed the attacks on Libyan terrorists.
Following the blasts, bomb experts safely detonated three other bombs,
one found across the street from the first blast site and the other two
discovered next to an Arab newspaper store near Hyde Park, in Kensington.
The bombings came a week after police privately warned Libyan ex-
patriates that hit squads have been dispatched by Libyan leader Moammar
Khadafy to kill opponents living abroad. A Libyan journalist and a Libyan
lawyer both were assassinated in London in 1980.
Police refused to say whether they believed the hit squads had planted the
"professionally made" devices, each of which comprised 2 pounds of com-
mercial explosive attached to timers.
Study says child'poverty rising
WASHINGTON - One out of five children and one out of two black
children now live in poverty-stricken families in America, according to a
study released yesterday by a House committee.
The study, conducted by the Select Committee on Children, Youth and
Families, said the scope and speed of recent social and economic changes
"are of a magnitude unprededented in our lifetime."
It said the increase in poverty means that many of the hopes parents have
for their children - better health, better training and a better standard of
living - "will be weighed ever more carefully against their financial
capacity to attain them."
Two weeks ago, the Census Bureau reported that the share of Americans
living below the official poverty level increased from 11.7 percent in 1979 to
15 percent in 1982. But that report said its figures did not take into account
the increase in so-called non-cash benefits,.programs such as food stamps,
school lunches, public housing, Medicaid, and Medicare.
For 1982, when official calculations estimated that 34.4 million Americans
lived in poverty, the level for a four-person family was set at $9,682 in annual
The study from the Democrat-controlled committee said economic
changes that have -eroded families' security include unemployment and
changed priorities in the federal budget. The panel issued its findings after a

day at the shrine of the Black Madonna in a display of solidarity with the

A monastery spokesman said 25 groups from throughout the country conm
verged unexpectedly on Czestochowa, site of the Black Madonna - the most
revered shrine in this officially atheist but overwhelmingly Roman Catholic
nation. Some students said they had scheduled the trip previously to
celebrate their upcoming graduations.
Nearly 700 of the youths traveled overnight from the towns of Mietno and
Garwolin south of Warsaw, where high school students occupied one school
and boycotted classes at three others last week.
The removal of crosses from schools in and around Garwolin, 40 miles
south of Warsaw, has led to the most significant unrest in Poland since the
government declared martial law in December 1981 and suspended the in-
dependent Solidarity labor federation.
Bombs destroy French plane
PARIS - Two bombs planted in the luggage compartment tore through a
French passenger jet with 100 people aboard yesterday during a stopover at
the Ndjamena airport in Chad, injuring 25 people, officials said.
Witnesses and Chadian diplomats said the Union des Transports Ariens
(UTA) DC-8 was destroyed by the second bomb, which exploded 20 minutes
after the first and after passengers escaped from the burning plane by
sliding down emergenicy chutes.
No group immediately claimed responsiblity, but a French foreign
ministy offical called the bombing an "attack" and indicated it was linked to
France's military presence in Chad to combat Libyan-backed rebels.
Chad's ambassador to France Allam Mi Ahmad accused Libya of carrying
out the bombings.
A UTA spokeman said all the injured passengers were French, and the
airline and airport personnel were French and Chadian nationals.
The official said the casuality toll ,would have been much higher if the
Lane's engines were running at the time of the first explosion.

California gays battle for rights
1 1, i 0
From AP and UPI
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Deluged with up to 10,000
letters and phone calls daily on both sides of the
issue, Gov. George Deukmejian is close to deciding
whether to sign a landmark bill that would outlaw job
discrimination against homosexuals.
Backers say the bill is a civil rights issue, while op-
ponents say it would "impose a San Francisco
lifestyle" on California.
THE SAN FRANCISCO homosexual community,
meanwhile, is mapping strategy for a "strong, visible
presence" when the Democratic National Convention
opens in July.
The Sacramento bill, culmination of a nine-year
battle, won final legislative passage March 1 with one
vote to spare, triggering the most intensive lobbying
Deukmejian has faced since he became governor 14
He has until midnight Wednesday to decide
whether to sign the bill, veto it or let it become law
without his signature.
THE REPUBLICAN governor has given no clue to
his decision, and foes and backers of the measure
have pushed their lobbying efforts to the limit.
On one side are conservative Republicans, led by
Richardson, of the Los Angeles suburb of Glendora,
and a coalition of fundamentalist religious leaders
known as the Committee for Moral Concern, which
warns that the measure would "impose a San Fran-
cisco lifestyle" on the entire state.
On the other side are the large, politically active
gay communities of San Francisco and Los Angeles,
civil liberties organizations and most liberal
MEANWHILE, the politics of "gay power" -
which has made the homosexual voting block a force
in city elections - will be practiced both on the
streets and in Convention Hall, says Harry Britt, a
member of San Francisco's law-making Board of
"Politically, we are the leading group in San Fran-
cisco," Britt said of the homosexual community,
estimated at as much as one-fourth of the city's
700,000 population. "We're going to have a strong,
visible presence when the Democrats come to town."
A massive march is planned for the eve of the con-
vention, which runs from July 16-20.
"The march will be directed at the Reagan ad-
ministration, not against the Democratic Party,"
Graduation nightmare can be avoided

To avoid the crowds that typically
pack the Cellar as the March deadline
draws near, students can order their
caps and gown by mail, Byas said.

in University department offices and at
Students in the College of
Engineering and the School of Natural
Resources must go through a different
process to graduate.
ENGINEERING students only have to
file one diploma application to kick off
the graduation process, said Elaine
Harden, a senior alumni officer in the
College of Engineering. Once that form
is filed, it is a counselor's respon-
sibility to make sure a student has
completed the college requirements,
Unlike their LSA counterparts,
engineering students rarely file
diploma applications late, Harden said.
"This is something that is very impor-
tant to their academic future so they
get (the form) in on time," she said.
Natural Resources students are
audited twice each year and only need
to submit a diploma application for a
final audit, said Sheryl Wenskay, a
Natural Resources auditor.
