Johnson meets with students

By STACEY SHONK
yVy YThirty students and Ann Arbor
residents staged a sit-in at University
Vice President for Student Services
Henry Johnson's office yesterday to
U protest remarks he made about rape in
this month's issue of Metropolitan
Detroit Magazine.
. In an article entitled "Silent Crime,"
Johnson said the University downplays
reports of rape on campus because it
could hurt freshman enrollment.
"WE'RE NOT here to blame you for
the problem of rape on campus," said
LSA junior Maureen Fitzsimmons to
Johnson. "We're here because we want
to help ourselves, and we need your
cooperation."
The group entered Johnson's office at
9 a.m. yesterday morning and stayed
until 5 p.m.
Once inside, the protesters met with
'. aJohnson and presented their demands
for dealing with sexual assaults on
campus.
"I WAS raped twice on campus, and I
had nowhere to go," said one woman as
she stared at Johnson,.
s "Sometimes I feel like a neurotic,
paranoid woman who goes around
talking about things people don't want
to hear," said Anne Ryan, a graduate

... .................................. ............ ......

Johnson defended his remarks saying
they were taken out of context. He
called the story "deplorable jour-
nalism," but said talking about it
wouldn't solve the problem. Johnson
handed out copies of a letter he sent to
the magazine.
"WE TAKE strong exception to the
very biased 'Silent Crime' article in
your January issue," the letter read.
"To say that U-M administrators are
lax in dealing with sex offenses is sim-
ply not true."
One of the problems in implementing
rape prevention programs, Johnson
said, is that two-thirds of students live
in off-campus housing which is outside
University security jurisdiction.
One protester suggested that the
reason the administration does not
perceive the magnitude of the rape
issue is because they lack accurate
statistics.
ONLY TWO first-degree rapes were
reported directly to University security
last year. Only rapes committed again-
st students on campus are reported ac-
cording to Walt Stevens, director of
security. .
One of the protester's demands
focused on the lack of adequate security
patrols on campus. A large security
staff protects University buildings, but
only four guards patrol outside, accor-
ding to Stevens.

Other demands included better
lighting of residential areas, more
rapid repair of existing lighting fix-
tures, and an outdoor emergy phone
system.
WHILE the group talked about the
problem with Johnson, one member
made a list of his promises on a chalk-
board in the conference room.
The list said, "Vice President Henry
Johnson'will:
" make a comprehensive list of ser-
vices within the University.
" look at Michigan State University,
Ohio State University, and Cornell
University as possible models to im-
jrove Michigan's programs.
" find a dedicated phone line for
women to share experiences and in-
cidences common to women.
" explore possibility of free self-
defense courses in dorms and other
locations.
" access to Computing Centers for
women.
" review all literature in Student Ser-
vices to insure that it treats violence
against women as a community
problem and nota problem restricted to
women.
The long-term goals of the
organization include a crisis center
which deals with sexual harassment of
all types.

Local
pro-life
groups
to protest
on Diag

By JACKIE YOUNG
Members of local anti-abortion groups will rally on the
Diag at noon today and march to the University's women's
hospital to protest on the 12th anniversary of the Supreme
Court decision legalizing most abortions.
Pro-life activists will also mark the occasion by placing
candles outside their homes to remind people of the 17 million
babies aborted, according to Teri Rohde, chairman of
Washtenaw County Right to Life.
"ONCE PEOPLE are educated and find out the real facts
behind (abortion), they will become more vocal," Rohde
ssaid.
She said that members of groups opposed to abortion have
been lighting candles on the anniversary of the decision for
the past three years and that 2,000 candles were ordered this
year, compared with only 100 the first year.
The Ann Arbor Chapter of the National Organization for
Women (NOW) does not have any events planned to
celebrate the 1973 Supreme Court decision, though NOW af-

filiates across the nation are holding vigils in abortion clinics
threatened by bomb and arson attacks.
THERE HAVE been 30 bomb and arson attacks against
abortion clinics nationwide since 1982 and 25 have occurred in
the past year, according to government reports.
Local abortion clinics say they are prepared to handle
violence but have not added extra security for the anniver-
sary.
"WE ARE being cautious," said a spokeswoman from the
local Planned Parenthood, adding that a security guard
stationed in the building's lobby is ready to deal with poten-
tial anti-abortion pickets.
Last fall, Planned Parenthood was picketed frequently on
football Saturdays, but staff members say that this ended
when they moved from their North Main address to their
current location on Professional Drive.
Madeline Hansen, president of NOW's Ann Arbor-
Washtenaw County chapter,said that the local Planned

Reagan takes oath in

private ceremony

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - President Reagan
launched his second term yesterday
calling for a new American economic
emancipation, as an arctic freeze for-
ced cancellation of all outdoor
inauguaration day activities for the fir-
st time in history.
Reagan and Vice President George
Bush, sworn in privately in the White
House Sunday, repeated the oath
publicly in the Rotunda of the Capitol -
out of sight of tens of thousands of loyal
Republicans who came to Washington
to celebrate four more years in control
of the White House.
THE PRESIDENT had expected to
repeat the performance yesterday on
the steps of the west front of the Capitol
the dramatic setting of his first
inaugural overlooking Washington's
Jiistoric monuments.
But the sub-zero temperatures forced
him to curtail the inaugural celebration
1y cancelling the traditional parade
mown Pennsylvania Avenue from the
.Capitol to the White House.
- Reagan's speech was an anthem of
d-the conservative principles that shaped
the policies of his first term. The second
four years will be more of the same, he
said.
REAGAN, America's oldest
president at 73, called on the nation to
use the progress of his first term to
"build an American opportunity

society, in which all of us - white and
black, rich and poor, young and old -
will go forward together, arm in arm."
"The time has come for a new
American emancipation - a great
national drive to tear down economic
barriers and liberate the spirit of en-
terprise in the most distressed areas of
our country," Reagan said. "A
dynamic economy, with more citizens
working and paying taxes, will be our
strongest tool to bring down budget
dificits."
Leaving the specifics to his State of
the Union address early next month,
Reagan - the nation's 40th chief
executive - called for a freeze on
government spending, lower deficits,
tax reform, a strong national defense
and arms reduction.
REAGAN reserved three paragraphs
to his controversial proposal for a
defense against space-borne weapons.
"There is only one way safely and
legitimately to reduce the cost of
national security, and that is to reduce
the need for it. This we are tyring to do
in negotiations with the Soviet Union,"
he said.
"We are not just discussing limits on
any further increase of nuclear
weapons. We seek, instead, to reduce
them. For the sake of each child in
every corner of the globe, we seek, one
day, the total elimination of nuclear
weapons from the face of the Earth."
INSTEAD OF the threat of mutual

assured destruction - the so-called
MAD deterrent against nuclear war -
Reagan said he seeks a security shield
to destroy missiles before they reach
their target.
'It wouldn't militarize space, it would
helpl demilitarize the arsenals of Ear-
th," he said.
"At the heart of our efforts," he said,
"is one idea vindicated by 25 straight
months of economic growth: Freedom
and incentives unleash the drive and
entrepreneurial genius that are the
core of human progress."
THE PRESIDENT said that by
lowering taxes and inflation and in-
creasing the number of working
Americans, he has proved that too
much government can only slow
economic growth and discourage
initiative.
"We must never again abuse the trust
of working men and women by sending
their earnings on a futile chase after the
spiraling demands of a bloated federal
establishment," the president said.
"You elected us in 1980 to end thi
prescription for disaster," Reagan
said. "I do not believe you re-elected us
in 1984 to reverse course."
"With heart and hand, let us stand as
one today," Reagan said. "Our people
under God determined that our future
shall be worthy of our past."

Students trudging through subzero
weather may not just be seeking the
haven of classrooms for educational
reasons but also as an alternative to a
cold apartment or house.
John Kahl, a graduate student in
Rackham, said the temperature
hasn't been above 60 degrees in his
apartment since Sunday. Maureen
Patzer, an LSA senior said she felt
uncomfortable to live downstairs in
her house. The upstairs occupants get
warm before she and her roommates
do, she said. Luckily, though, it was
the upstairs pipes that froze, she ad-
ded.
AS TEMPERATURES hit 18 below

zero in the Ann Arbor area, not only
the students were complaining, but
also the. landlords who have been
making quite a few "house calls."
"Most (of the problems) are small
problems and we're taking care of
them," said Elaine Bott, a rental
agent of Baker Management.
Christopher Barnes of University
Towers reported only one breakage of
pipes, although he said a lot of people
have been complaining about the cold.
The maintenance supervisor of
Dahlman Apartments, John
Meissner, said there have been "600
percent more calls." He said he
checked 18 apartments after hours
yesterday.

there was no way I could be a specialist in every area. I
thought I should select areas where I could contribute."
Pease said words such as "heretofore" and "hereinafter"

from the legislative vocabulary. "We have a tendency in
the Legislature to be verbose. It doesn't need to be that
way," said Pease. "It's important in any free society that
