Arizona students set new mean

About 2,400 students in an introduc-
tory accounting course at Arizona State
University had their mid-term grades
disqualified because department of-

copies of the test before the exam was
Department officials estimated this
week that nearly 40 percent of the class,

exams in a security file.
Some students whose grades were
thrown out have written letters to the
department protesting the punishment,
Humphreys said.
But students did score higher on the
24-question mid-term exam than in past
years. In the past, the mean score has
been 14, but this year it jumped to 18.

or 900 students, received copies of the
exam before test-time.
ALTHOUGH it is unclear where
students got copies of the test, Assistant
Editor of the State Press Mike Hum-
phreys said school officials are in-
vestigating the ASU printing center.
Some officials think the tests were
stolen when they were transported
from the accounting department to the
campus printer, Humphreys said.

for 'pop' museum
The Chairman of the Popular Culture
Department at Bowling Green State
University in Ohio has been trying for
15 years to turn a local hamburger
haven into a porcelain tower pop
culture museum.
Prof. Raymond Brown, the prince of
this pop culture quest, has proposed the
idea to managers of an Ohio chain of
White Castle Hamburger Restaurants
in Columbus, Ohio who have expressed
some interest.

BUT IT seems Brown has some com-
petition for the porcelain beef patty
palaces. The Ohio Historical Society is
trying to include the restaurant on the
National Register of Historic Buildings
and the Columbus Zoo has been
negotiating with restaurant owners to
purchase the building.
Although Brown's idea was rejected
by university and Bowling Green city of-
ficials, he said he won't give up his
"I'm appealing to the greed in
people," Brown said. "If we have that
museum here, it might bring people in
to spend a few more dollars in Bowling
Presently, there are only six White
Castle Porcelain Palaces remaining.

Law enrollment down
Despite numerous articles in the
past year about the overabundance of
lawyers in the U.S., a recent study by
the American Bar Association shows

that trend has begun to turn around.
Total enrollment in law schools has
decreased for the first time since 1968,
according to the ABA study of 173 law
schools surveyed in the fall of 1983,
enrollment was 127,195, a one-half percent
drop from 1982.
But the number of women and
minorities in law schools has continued
to climb. In 1983, the number of female
law students enrolled was 47,980, and
the number of minorities enrolled was
11,865, both a 2 percent increase from
The study, conducted by the ABA's
consultant on Legal Education, James
White, also found that the total first-
year enrollment in law schools had
dropped by almost 3 percent to 41,160
last year.

Shapiro will issue
gay rights policy

(Continued from Page 1)
brochures, or publications because it is
not a bylaw, Shapiro said. University
students and employees, however, will
be able to use the same grievance
procedure applied to individuals who
are discriminated under other parts of
the policy, the president said.
The regents' decision pleased some
members of the gay community, but
disappointed others.
"I think it is a strong statement. It
directly parallels the sexual
harassment policy (also issued by
Shapiro). That policy has been very
well publicized and very well enfor-
ced," said LSA senior Cathy Godre, an
organizer of the Queers Action Commit-
tee, a local gay activist group.
A BYLAW would be more powerful
because it would include outside
organizations such as the military,
federal government, and ROTC that
discriminate against homosexuals on
campus, she said.
But she added that she is satisfied
*with thepolicy statement and will work
to see it enforced before she considers
tackling an amendment to the bylaws.
Gay activists on campus will have to

encourage lesbians and gays who feel
they have been treated unfairly to use
the policy, Godre said.
MORE VICTIMS of discrimination
will step forward once they see that the
University is taking their problem
seriously, she added.
But the president of Michigan Gay
Undergraduates said the statement is
too weak to convince most gay students
to disclose their sexual preference and
that other reasons besides
homosexuality could always be used to
justify discrimination.
"The only people who will put (their
sexual preference) on their resumes
and applications will be the people who
do it now," said the student, who asked
not to be named.
OTHER universities have adopted a
similar non-discriminatory policy for
homosexuals, including certain schools
and departments at Harvard Univer-
sity, the University of Wisconsin-
Madison, and the University ofCalifor-
"There is definitely a move on part of
the gay community, not only students,
to pass these regulations at colleges
and universities," said Tina Trunzo, a
civil rights organizer for the United
States Student Association.
Both the University of Wisconsin and
the University of California have
changed their bylaws in the last two
years, but both arein states that also
have non-discriminatory policies for
sexual orientation.
Although affirmative action officials
at the three schools said that the policy
has helped students fight
discrimination, it has caused unexpec-
ted complications at the University of
Berkeley administrators fear they
will have to discriminate against
homosexual couples who want to rent
married student housing from the
University, while others may be denied
financial aid designed for self-
supportive couples.

Rioting returns to Miami ghetto
MIAMI - Young blacks enraged by the acquittal of policeman Luis
Alvarez lay in wait for white motorists yesterday in the Overtown ghetto and
others warned "It's going to be bad, real bad."
A few hours after Miami's black City Manager Howard Gary announced
"This town is calm;" and ordered the barricades sealing off Overtown pulled,
down police rushed to return the roadblocks.
"It is business as usual and we anticipate being this way this evening and
we don't think we ought to overreact," Gary said, before a motorist was in-
jured by rocks and bricks hurled at his car.
Sixteen people were injured, none seriously, and over 300 arrested during
the night but massive "police response teams" of up to 20 carloads of riot-
geared officers raced to trouble spots to keep violence from mounting in any
single place.
Journalist killed in El Salvador
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador-Newsweek photographer John Hoagland
was shot and killed in a Widossfire between government troops and leftist'
guerrillas north of the capital yesterday, journalists said.
Hoagland, 36, of San Diego, Calif., was slain outside the city of Suchitoto'
about 20 miles northeast of San Salvador, the journalists said.
Hoagland's death brought to 10 the number of journalists who have died'
covering the war in El Salvador.
Joseph Contreras, a Newsweek reporter, said Hoagland was hit by an M-60'
machine gun round that pierced his lung. Contreras said Hoagland's body
was being brought to a San Salvador hospital.
Richard Wagner, a CBS news correspondent, said Hoagland and other
journalists were pinned down for more than one hour in a weedy field as the
army and guerrillas fought for control of the area just south of Suchitoto.
"After the fighting died down, we took turns carrying John's body and just
got out of there," Wagner said.
Hoagland was a veteran photographer who also covered the revolution in
Nicaragua in 1979. He had just returned to El Salvador to cover the elections
after covering the U.S. Marine withdrawal from Beirut.
He was wounded earlier in El Salvador in 1981 when a car he was traveling
in hit a mine on a road.
Auto recalls jump to 6 million
DETROIT - Recalls of domestic and foreign autos jumped in 1983 to 6.1
million vehicles from 1.9 million in 1982, and Volkswagen recalled the most
cars of any single company, federal statistics showed yesterday.
Automakers credited the huge increase to "bad runs" of certain models
and said they did not think it reflected a crackdown on defects by the Reagan
A consumer group said despite the increase in cars recalled, a more im-
portant figure is the number of recall campaigns, which is far below those
ordered during the Carter administration.
Figures from the Department of Transportation showed 2.09 million
domestic autos were involved in 110 recall campaigns. Import automakers
recalled 3.02 million cars in 30 campaigns. The figures total 6.11 million
vehicles in 140 campaigns.
It was the closest imports have come to overtaking their domestic com-
petitors in recalls.
The unwanted prize for.the most recalls went to Volkswagen which
recalled 1.73 million imported cars in four recalls. This compares to four VW
recalls in 1982 involving 102,000 vehicles.
Robert Kennedy Jr. receives
probation for heroin possession
RAPID CITY, S.D.-Robert Kennedy Jr. was placed on two years'
probation yesterday following his guilty plea to a charge of carrying heroin,
provided he continues treatment for drug addiction and does 1,500 hours of
community service.
Kennedy, 30, son of the late senator and U.S. attorney general, received
the probation term from Circuit Judge Marshall Young, who said he was im-
pressed with Kennedy's attitude during the proceedings and with Kennedy's
admission he possessed the herion.
He pleaded guilty Feb. 17 to possession of .02 grams of heroin.
Under the terms of the probation, Kennedy would live in New York state
for the two years and would have no criminal record afterward. Young said
Kennedy must continue the drug addiction treatment program and consent
to tests to determine if he has used drugs, give up his rights to protection
against search and seizure if authorities have reason to search him or his
property for a drug.
Defense rests in gang rape trial
FALL RIVER, Mass.-The defense rested its case yesterday in the trial of
two of six men charged with gang raping a woman on a New Bedford tavern
pool table.
After calling nine witnesses in four days, attorneys for Daniel Silva and
Joseph Vieira, charged in the March 6, 1983, incident at Big Dan's Tavern,
concluded their case. The jury was expected to begin deliberations today.
The prosecution also completed its case yesterday against four other men
being tried separately on the same charges, and attorneys said that second
case will go to the jury next week. Those defendants are John Cordeiro, Vic-

tor Raposo, Jose Medeiros and Virgilio Mederias.
"The jury will have the case by Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest," said
Kenneth Sullivan, Cordeiro's attorney.
Silva and Vieira face possible life sentences if convicted on the charge of
aggravated rape. The jury can opt for lesser-charges ranging from assault
and hattery to lewd and lascivious behavior. The latter carries penalties of
fines and probation.

from an ultra-conservative ad-
"It's a distinction I shall cherish for
some time," Eldersveld said of being
partners-in-crime with such American
notables as TV anchormen David
Brinkley and Walter Cronkite, former
National Security Advisor McGeorge
Bundy, civil rights activist Corretta
Scott King, and consumer advocate
Ralph Nader.
Eldersveld, however, says he has no
idea what he did to deserve the honor, if
anything beyond simply being a liberal.
"THEY MUST HAVE some infor-
mants who have been saying
disparaging things about me, maybe
some reports that have gone to the
government about me," he said. "I'd be
interested to know if they have some
sort of file on me.,

Eldersveld, who has chaired the
University's political science depar-

Arbor's first Democratic mayor since
the depression, because he has spent
his career speaking abroad in
developments in politics.

ON A SERIOUS note, however,
Eldersveld said he was amazed that the
government had compiled such a list.
"This blacklisting isreally an
abominable business,", he said. "It

speaking about their own views when
Reagan is the president.
