Manhunt
snags
3,300
S gitives
NEW YORK (UPI) - Attorney
General William French Smith, said
yesterday that a series of "sting"
operations was the key to an eight-
week, eight-state sweep. netting 3,300
fugitives - the largest yield from a
manhunt in U.S. history.
Smith and Stanley Morris, U.S.
marshals director, were enthusiastic
about the sweep, even though at least
half of those arrested have been or will
be set free on bail.
t
"THIS MARKS cne of the most
significant law enforcement efforts
ever undertaken," Smith said at a news
onference Tuesday. "Never before
have so many who have fled from
justice been seized."
The manhunt cost $2.5 million and in-
eluded 225 officers from all 50 states.
Agents lured criminals throught
several scams, including the "Brooklyn
Bridge Delivery Service," in which
agents sent the fugitives notices to pick
up expensive packages. When the
criminals showed up to sign for the
,goods, they were nabbed.
THE SUSPECTS were lured into the
arms of the law with offers of cheap
tickets to rock concerts.
Smith said those captured are either
,career criminals or "individuals wan-
ted for the most heinous crimes, such as
rape and murder." The fugitives nab-
,bed in the sweep. averaged four convic-
tions each.
Joint efforts by local, state and
federal law enforcement agencies in
eight East Coast states rounded up the
3,309 fugitives. The sweep - dubbed fist
or Fugitive Investigative Strike Team
- marked the seventh such operation
6 in three years.
An estimated 210,000 fugitives may
H still be at large in the nation, Morris
-said.

India considers
. .
conspiracy in
Ghandi murder

NEW DELHI, India (AP) - The
government directed a Supreme Court
judge yesterday to investigate whether
there was a conspiracy behind the
assassination of Prime Minister Gan-
dhi.
Justice M.P. Thakkar was directed to
determine whether the two Sikh
security guards the government says
shot Gandhi on Oct. 31 acted alone or as
part of a conspiracy. He was told to
report his findings within six months.
The United News of India mean-
while quoted police as saying nine Sikh
extremists were arrested at the Bom-
bay airport Monday as they attempted to
fly to Karachi, Pakistan, and then on to
Mexico.
UNI QUOTED police as saying
the Sikhs belonged to an extremist
group and "had admitted their in-
volvement in some anti-national ac-
tivities and made some incriminat-
ing statements."
It was not immediately known
whether they were suspected of in-
volvement in Gandhi's assassination.
UNI said they arrived in Bombay Oct.
31, the day Gandhi was killed, and cut
their hair and shaved their beards to
conceal their identities.
Sikh men traditionally wear beards
and turbans over their long hair.
Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, Gan-

di's 40-year-old son, was quoted as
saying yesterday that there was a
"deep-routed conspiracy" to kill his
mother. UNI said the new prime
minister told reporters in Sultanpur,
370 miles southeast of New Delhi, that
the conspiracy involved several people
living abroad.
He did not identify the alleged con-
spirators, but his statement was an ap-
parent reference to reports of alleged
involvement by foreign-based Sikh
separatists.
In June, Gandhi ordered an army
assault on the Sikh minority's holiest
shrine, the Golden Temple in Amritsar,
to flush out armed Sikh extremists.
Reports indicated that at least 1,000
people died in the battle.
India's Supreme Court yesterday also
ordered an Associated Presss reporter
to make himself available for police
estioning in Punjab state about his
reports on the Indian army's assault on
the Sikh Golden Temple last June
A five-judge panel rejected a request
from the reporter, Brahma Chellaney,
an Indian citizen, that an attorney be
present during his interrogation.
Chellaney's lawyer had argued that a
journalist has a right to protect his
sources during any questioning but the
court order did not address that issue.

Turkey trot
Children at the Delton-Kellogg Elementary School in Kalamazoo got some free dancing lessons yesterday from Tom, a i
two-year-old turkey. The bird turned to dance instruction as a career to avoid ending up as a Thanksgiving feast.
Teetotaling not part of 'U' report

(Continued from Page 1)
of problems with alcohol.
ANOTHER MAJOR focus in the report is the establishment
of an effective alcohol plolicy. Members of the task force did
not have any general agreement on what the policy should
be, except that it should fall between the extremes of a "dry"
campus and one with a "non-policy" or completely lax at-
titude toward drinking.
"It would be easier to simply ban drinking," said Archie
Andrews, director of housing special programs, "but it's more
beneficial to understand what responsible drinking is."
Andrews added that the guidelines recommended in the
report are a step in a direction that would help in education.
THE CURRENT policy, which was reworded and clarified
in response to recommendations of the task force, states that
the sale, possession, and consumption of alcohol is governed
by state laws which prohibit sale and use of alcohol to anyone
under 21 years of age.
The policy also prohibits consumption of alcohol in public
areas of residence halls, point-of-sale transactions for
alcohol, advertising of parties with alcohol, or use of house
funds to purchase alcohol.
Formulating a policy is very difficult, Bruhnsen said. "We
are not really out to legislate morality," he added.
John Heidke, associate director of housing education and

residence operations, agreed.
"WE HAVE no interest in turning this into a teetotaling
campus," he said.
Two years ago, each residence hall had its own policy
regarding alcohol, but that has since been changed to more
uniform rules.
Some people believe, however, that the wording of the
policy is still ambiguous.
"Basically, the problems are between the way resident
staff and security interpret policy," said West Quad RA
Becky Smith.
SECURITY is often stricter than the RAs are, she said, ad-
ding that "we still haven't any uniform way of inter-
pretation."
Fran Foster, housing security supervisor said however,
that she has seen no differences in interpretation.
"There is no separate policy," she said. "Security and
resident staff are all working from the same policy."
Security, she said, is only interested in fostering an en-
vironment that allows for responsible choices about drinking.
According to Leroy Williams, director of housing infor-
mation and member of the task force, the concern about
alcohol is not directed only at students.
"Students aren't the only people who abuse alcohol. Staff
and faculty must learn about alcohol, too," he said. "There
should be a total University commitment to becoming more
aware."

Lotto winner wants
to 'buy Tom Selleck'

LANSING, Mich. (UPI) - Patricia
Parker of Kalamazoo was announced
yesterday as the winner of Michigan's
record $10.4 million Lotto jackpot and
told reporters, tongue firmly in cheek,
that her plan is to "buy (actor) Tom
Selleck."
She will receive annual payments
through 2003. The federal withholding
tax is about 20 percent and the final rate
could be as high as 58 percent.
The woman said she delayed release

of her name to the media because there
were "a lot of things I had to take care
of."
The Parkers said they simply have no
firm plans for the money at this point,
other than to buy a new car and perhaps
take a vacation during the holidays.
Mrs. Parker said she is "not sure"
how the prize will change her life.
"I'm not sure what's going to hap-
pen," she said. "I hope it is a positive
change."

administrator or a faculty member.
"(Administrators) took away some of
the rallying points we were using,"
Page said. "It's going to make it more
difficult to explain the problems with
(the draft) . . . they're more complex,
not as blatant," Page said.
AND BY simply changing the name
of the conduct guidelines from "the
code" to the "Rules of the University
Community, Revision No. 1" the ad-
ministration may also have taken the
wind out of the catch phrase "No
Code," used by students who are op-
posed to the rules.
Virginia Nordby, special assistant to
the president who has largely drafted

the administration's revision, said the
changes represent an attempt to
"respond to some of the criticisms that
have been made and to see if there's
some way we can't get the community
to accept this."
Not all of the criticism, however, has
led to change. Hearing officers can still
limit the participation of attorneys at
any time if they are considered disrup-
tive; the judicial system is still treated
as separate from the conduct rules and
therefore not subject to approval by the
faculty Senate Assembly or MSA; all of
the conduct rules might apply to cam-
pus teams and organizations under a
clause granting jurisdiction over
"University activities," and civil

disobedience could still be punished.
NORDBY SAID she thinks there is
still more room for fine-tuning. But her
assistant, Dan Sharphorn, last Friday
said the administration can't go any
further toward giving students what
they would like to see in a code without
making it unenforceable.
"I don't think we should now criticize
these rules. I think the next step is
whether or not we want one (set of
guidelines) at all," Sharphorn said.
"If (students) don't want any rules at
all, they should come out and say it.
Let's make this the campus-wide
issue," he added.
Page also said he would like to see

MSA's work shift away from critiquing
the code and move toward pursuing a
guarantee that students will be able to
vote on the final set of conduct rules
issued by the University Council.
With such a guarantee MSA could
concentrate on educating the student
body about the final draft, rather than
publicizing intermediate drafts which
might be passed over students' heads at
any time.
"If the administration is a moving
target, it's much more difficult for us to
keep students informed. And students
are going to get fed up and say, 'Hey,
you've asked us to read 40 copies of this
thing," Page said.

Schembechler and the Wolverine foot-
ball players, who were not sure they
would be going anywhere for the
holidays after last Saturday's 21-6 loss
to Ohio State, let alone to the west coast
to face the nation's top-ranked school.
"WE THOUGHT we had a good chan-
ce of going somewhere because of the
great tradition here and all," said team
captain Mike Mallory. "If we go (to the
Holiday Bowl), yeah, it would be ex-
citing."
One problem with going to San Diego
is that the game will be played at an
early date, Dec. 21 - the last day of
final exams. But Canham indicated
that that could be overcome.
"We've gone to the Rose Bowl the last
few days of finals in the past and it
didn't cause much difficulty," said

Canham. "Most people are done with
finals early and if there are any con-
flicts, they could probably be worked
out."
Before Michigan built its indoor foot-
ball facility, the team would leave for
Pasadena two weeks before the game to
practice in the warm weather. Because
the Wolverines can stay in Ann Arbor
now and practice indoors, they
probably wouldn't leave for California
this year more than three or four days
before the game.
When it gets there, Michigan ought to
find its most highly-ranked opponent
it's ever seen in a bowl game. Brigham
Young, the champions of the Western
Athletic Conference, is 11-0 and ranked
number one in all the college football
polls.bThe Cougars have one more game
to play Saturday against lowly Utah
State.
