Texas band


admit women


The Texas A & M University must
begin accepting female members, ac-
cording to a settlement accepted by a
U.S. District judge in Houston.
The agreement ends a 6-year sex
discrimination suit filed by a former
student who charged that excluding
females from the band violated her
rights. The student was later joined by
the U.S. Department of Justice.
A group of former student band
members, who entered the suit when
the state attorney general refused, said
they will appeal the settlement.
The university's Board of Regents
issued a joint statement condemning
the lack of action on the attorney
general's part.
"The unique Fightin' Texas Aggie
Band is worth preserving as a very
distinct and unique organization unlike
any volunteer organization in the coun-
try," the university's regents said in a
prepared statement.

Mall classes produce
qualified students
Classes conducted in shopping malls

are producing more qualified students
for Indiana University-Purdue Univer-
sity. The university located in In-
dianapolis took the college classroom to
five area shopping centers five years
ago and has since found that the non-
traditional students are doing better
than their on-campus counterparts.
Classes are conducted in rooms used
by large department stores to train new
employees. In return, the stores receive
the benefits of increased prospects for
potential shoppers.
So far, this plan has added 1,500 to
2,400 students to the university's total
enrollment figures each semester, with
"Learn & Shop" students taking nearly
4 percent of IUPUI's total credit hours.
The University conducted a series of
tests using the same professors, cour-
ses, semesters, and exams to compare
the progress of "Learn & Shop" studen-
ts with that of students in the regular
weekday program and in a weekend
program. Test results showed that the
"Learn & Shop" students consistently
marked higher than the other students.

Massachusettes college
bans dorm alcohol
Alcoholic beverages have been ban-
ned from all dormitories on a
Massachusettes college campus in an
attempt to crack down on rowdiness

and other problems that school officials
say are the result of abusive drinking.
Framingham State College officials
said they wanted to improve the at-
mosphere in the residence halls and
alcohol use and the corresponding
abuse were undermining that goal.
Staff members from the univeristy's
vice president for student services of-
fice said they will monitor the at-
mosphere in. the dorms, which house

Yale fraternity rush
draws criticism
An apparent rebirth of the fraternity
system at Yale University is drawing a
mixed reaction from the campus com-
munity. Though some men are finding a
new social outlet in the fraternities,
many students have expressed disgust
over some of the hazing activities.
O j

Last week during Delta Kappa Ep-
silon's rush ceremonies, some member
of the fraternity marched down streets
waving a flag made of women's under-
wear. Several female undergraduates
complained that the fraternity's actions
"demean women."
But KDE's Rush Chairman John
Zanieski said the event was just clean
"Everybody has a desire and a need
to be a fool once in a while and this is
their excuse to do it," Zanieski said.
"I'm sure (the women's underwear)
was stolen out of laundry rooms."

Texas fraternity elects

The President of the university's
Black Students' Alliance said the elec-
tin of a black to the top leadership
position could lead to a better under-
standing between predominantly white
fraternities and black student.
PKT is the only fraternity affiliated
with the university's Interfraternity
Council which has members who are
black. The four predominantly black
fraternities at the university are not af-
filiated with the IFC.

Senate Judiciary clears Meese
WASHINGTON-The Senate Judiciary Committee, dismissing ethical
questions on a 12-6 vote, yesterday recommended Edwin Meese be confir-
med as attorney general, moving President Reagan's counselor closer to the
The committee sent the nomination to the full Senate after a three-day
hearing that concentrated on questions about Meese's integrity and ethics in
the wake of a special prosecutor's investigation that cleared him of criminal
The full Senate is expected to vote on the nomination soon after it returns
form recess Feb. 18 Meese did not attend yesterday's committee meeting.
Meese came under fire following disclosures that some people who helped
him out financially with his two mortgages later got federal jobs and that the
Army skirted its regulations when he was given a promotion that means a
bigger pension.
New Zealand denies port of
entry to U.S. naval destroyer
WASHINGTON-The administration, signaling allies that anti-nuclear
policies will not be "cost-free," yesterday canceled a naval exercise over
New Zealand's denial of port access to a U.S. warship.
The dispute was prompted by New Zealand's rejection Monday of a second
U.S. request to permit the destroyer USS Buchanan to dock at one of its ports
at the conclusion of the exercises.
Prime Minister David Lange, who swept into power in July on an anti-
nuclear platform, has declared his Labor government will not allow any
nuclear-powered or nuclear-armed vessels into New Zealand ports.
While the destroyer is not nuclear powered, the New Zealand government
wants assurances the ship is not carrying nuclear weapons. The U.S. gover-
nment refuses to disclose such information.
State Department spokesman Bernard Kalb said the action is intended to
signal other Western nations, who he declined to identify, on the perils of an-
ti-nuclear policies.
Blanchard vies for Saturn plant
LANSING-Once again, Gov. James Blanchard is promising to "pull out
all the stops" in Michigan's competition with at least a dozen states for
General Motors Corp.'s new Saturn plant.
Blanchard told the Michigan Association of Broadcasters yesterday he
hopes GM will give Michigan serious consideration as the home for the plant,
which will build subcompacts to compete with the lowest-price Japanese
"I believe if Michigan is seriously considered, we will end up as Saturn's
home," he said. "We're going to pull ouf all the stops because we should and
we have to. It could help us set the pace for substantial improvement in the
business climate."
Blanchard noted that the state was able to persuade Mazda Motors Corp.
to build a new assembly plant in the Detroit suburb of Flat Rock. He said
there is no reason why the same shouldn't be true for the Saturn plant.
"If Mazda can start form scratch, certainly GM can stay here and do it,"
Blanchard told the broadcasters at their annual winter meeting.
Gibraltar opening spurs violence
GIBRALTAR-"Fanatics" set fire to five cars on the Spanish side of the
border yesterday moments after Spain swung open the green iron gates that
isolated the strategic British colony of Gibraltar for almost 16 years.
The opening ended a diplomatic siege that began when Francisco Franco
sealed the border in June 1969, forcing the colony to turn to Britain and
Africa for labor.and supplies.
Minutes after the gates swung .open, five cars bearing Gibraltar license
plates were set fire in La Linea - the Spanish border town opposite Gibraltor.
La Linea Police Chief Juan Sani said two of the cars were destroyed and
the other three damaged. A fireman was injured fighting the fires, he said.
The opening followed an agreement Britain and Spain reached Nov. 27.
Two years ago authorities began allowing people who live in Gibraltar and
Spaniards with relatives in the colony to go in and out. Yesterday was the
first time people and goods had been allowed to pass without restriction.
Exiled S. Korean opposition
leader fears house arrest
WASHINGTON-Saying "I do not know my fate tomorrow," South Korean
opposition leader Kim Dae Jung warned yesterday' of possible anti-gover-
nment disturbances if the government tries to put him under house arrest
upon his return to Seoul.
"Dangers await me," said Kim, who leaves for South Korea on Wed-
nesday, concluding two years of exile in the United States. He said he has
been told he won't be jailed, but thinks there is a "strong possibility" he will
be placed under house arrest.
"I think if they put me under house arrest, there will be some protest from
our people," Kim told a news conference. He is scheduled to arrive in Seoul
on Friday after an overnight stop in Tokyo.
He didn't suggest he would encourage protests, but declared he would con-
sider house arrest "not acceptable."
And he said that if the Korean government "is moderate" toward him
when he returns, "I will also be very moderate so that my return will not
result in creating any instability."

Earlier yesterday welfare Director
Agnes Mansour and Paul Allen, direc-

tinue funding "medically necessary"
care for conditions which result from
an abortion, even if payments for abor-

Mansour also said she does not
believe the funding cutoff will actually
reduce the number of abortions per-

Listing said in states which have
terminated funding for abortions, 60
percent to 80 percent of the women who
might otherwise have obtained welfare
abortions wound up paying for the
operations on their own.
