Tiger playoff

fever heats up


Cubs or Tigers?
That seems to be the only question that matters these days
as the Chicago Cubs and the Detroit Tigers both move closer
to the World Series.
THE UNIVERSITY draws nearly 23,000 students from the
state of Michigan and 11,000 from Illinois, leaving a lot of
Cubbie fans and even more Tiger fans who would probably
rather watch their squads in the playoffs than be buried in
books in the library.,
Unfortunately, classes are not cancelled for the major
league baseball playoffs; nevertheless, that's not stopping
some students from watching their favorite team.
"Yeah, I watched the game (Tigers' first game against the
Kansas City Royals), and I let my homework slide," said
LSA freshperson Mike Mandrea.
OTHER LOYAL fans have different ways of balancing
homework with watching their favorite club.
"You can study and watch, but the studying is not that in-
tense - but the rooting definitely is," said Todd Johnson, a
sophomore in engineering.

For LSA freshpersons Julie Shersmith and Julie Zick, Tiger
updates between studying will have to suffice.
"WE WILL just go down every once in awhile," Shersmith
said, adding that the roommates probably will wait until the
deciding game to watch a contest in its entirety.
One cubs fan, LSA freshperson Ed Krauss, said he was able
to watch both the National League playoff contests. "I wat-
ched both games, my two o'clock class was cancelled
(yesterday) ... probably because of the game."
If there were a Dedicated Cub Fan Award on campus, third
year law student Stacey Fisher would stand a good chance of
"I'M A THIRD generation Cub fan," she said while sitting
on the grass outside the Law Library in a Cubs t-shirt. Fisher
said she took a train home to Kalamazoo and drove into
Chicago with her parents for the opening game of the Cubs-
San Diego Padres series.
"I had to miss some classes, it was worth it. . . seeing (Cub
pitcher Rick) Sutcliffe hit a home run is worth it. It's history .
.. This is only law school," Fisher said.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The In-
ternal Revenue Service, following an
audit of George Bush's 1981 tax returns,
directed the vice president to pay an
additional $198,000 in taxes and in-
terest, his attorneys revealed yester-
The IRS -required most of the ad-
ditional payments - now being contes-
ted by Bush - after disallowing a tax
deferral the vice president had claimed
on profits from the sale of his Houston
residence. The tax agency also
required that part of a $91,852 campaign
fund surplus that Bush' received be
counted as income.
BUSH AND his wife Barbara paid
$245,491 in federal income taxes in 1981.
His attorneys said he is contesting,
$144,128 of the additional tax payment,.
plus $54,000 in interest that he was
required to pay following the audit.
Attorney Dean Burch said the IRS
ruling will be appealed and will be
carried to tax court if required. "We're
likely to get it turned down by the IRS,"
said Bob Yorty, an attorney who ac-
companied Burch.
Bush said at a news conference early
yesterday that he was causing the tax
returns to be released because of per-
sistent media interest. "I hope
everybody's insatiable curiosity is

taxe s
resolved," said Bush.
Specifically, the IRS ruled:
Bush was wrong in deferring taxes on
the profits - he made in selling his
Houston house. Bush tried to defer such
taxes on grounds that he'd bought 4
more expensive house in Maine, but the
IRS said the Maine house didn't count
because Bush's main residence was in
" The vice president erred in taking tax
deductions for a contribution to the
Republican National Committee that
came not from money he earned, but
from a surplus of 1980 campaign
Deductions for fixing up the vice
presidential offices were allowable, the
IRS said, so long as the contributions
were added to Bush's income.
The surplus campaign funds were left
over from Bush's attempt to gain the
Republican presidential nomination. At
the end of the campaign, about $85,000
was deposited in two accounts in
Washington. The funds, plus interest
earned, were then used to refurbish the
vice presidential offices, ($26,362) pay
certain vice presidential "expenses,
($30,234) and pay late campaign expen-
ses ($2,449). The balance of $32,807 was
contributed to the Republican National

Brown U. ponders suicide pills

Brown University students are
asking that cyanide pills be provided by
the college for them to use to commit
suicide in the event of a nuclear war.
The proposal, which will be voted on
next week by students at the Providen-
ce, R.I. school, is a nonbinding referen-
dum, so the college will not have to
&bide by it if it passes, school officials
pointed out.
THE MOVEMENT to stock the
university's health service with the
pills is the work of four students who
read about a doctor in Cambridge,
England who was offering suicide pills
to his patients as a way to avoid facing
a nuclear holocaust.
Jason Salzman, an organizer of. the
proposal, said the referendum begah as
a way to "get people thinking about
Vuclear war."
"We're doing this to raise con-
sciousness on the real proposition that
nuclear war will destroy civilization,"
Salzman said. "Nuclear war is a very
serious issue that should be associated
with suicide."

'We're doing this to raise consciousness on
the real proposition that nuclear war will
destroy civilization . .- . Nuclear war is a
very serious issue that should be associated
with suicide.'

from university officials. Dr. Sumner
Hoffman, the director of Brown
University Health Services, called the
proposal "ridiculous."
Hoffman said the university-has no
intention of abiding by the student vote.
And as a physician, he said the
proposal goes against his ethics.
- "Our job is to cure and prolong
(life)," Hoffman said. "Who will carry
on if everyone takes a pill? To eliminate
all life by taking suicide pills makes no
sense at all. Rather than taking the
fatalistic approach, I think we, as an
educational institution, should be
teaching people how to prevent nuclear
war from happening."
Despite the negative reaction from
the university's administration, spon-
sors of the proposal are not
"Apathy towards nuclear war is
growing. Politicians and the gover-
nment are ignoring large, public
demonstrations," said Ralph Walsh, a
proposal organizer.
"We want to do something to prevent
(nuclear war)," Walsh said.

Detroit nips K.C.

in extra
KANSAS CITY (AP) - John Grubb
sliced a two-run double to right cen-
terfield off Kansas City reliever Dan
Quisenberry to give the Detroit
Tigers a 5-3 win in the top of the
eleventh inning of last night's second
game of the American League Cham-
pionship Series.
Hal McRae jolted Tigers bullpen ace
Willie Hernandez with an RBI double
in the eighth inning to forge a 3-3 tie
and send the contest into extra in-
the Royals hitless through the first
three innings while the Tigers jumped
to a 2-0 lead in the first. Lou Whitaker
reached base on a fielding error by
Concepcion, who ran in to pick up the

slow roller but dropped the ball before
he could throw.
Gibson and Parrish then RIugged
run-scoring doubles into right field for
a 2-0 Tiger advantage. Kirk Gibson
unloaded a 420-foot home run over the
center field fence in the third inning to
give the Tigers a 3-0 lead.
The Royals finally broke through
against Petry in the fourth. With one
out, Pat Sheridan drew a walk and
went to third when George Brett lined
a single into center.
Jorge Orta then bounced to
Whitaker, who stepped on the bag at
secohd for the force on Brett but was
late to first in the double play attempt.
Sheridan scored on the play to slice
the lead to 3-1.

ANOTHER student who helped start
the proposal, Remy Coeytaux, said he
wasn't sure if he would actually take a
pill if the situation arose, but added that
their goal was to educate people about
the nuclear threat..
"We're getting people' to look at
nuclear war in a different way,"

Coeytaux said. "We're equating
nuclear war with suicide."
About 700 Brown students, 13% of the
undergraduate population, signed a
petition to have the referendum placed
on next week's ballot for the student
council election.
