MSU porn fight goes to court


EAST LANSING (UPI) - A dispute over the
showing of X-rated movies, which has split the cam-
pus of Michigan's largest state university, is headed
for court in Grand Rapids.
The fight at MSU gan Jan. 23 when MSU Vice
President Moses Turner asked Darin Greyerbiehl of
Revolver Cinema and his roomate Bob Murawski of
Box Office Spectaculars to stop showing the films.
The groups balked and were suspended as student

Turner's action was prompted, in part, by a com-
plaint from the Women's Council, a branch of student
goernment at MSU.
The American Civil Liberties Union, acting on
behalf of the student film groups, plans to ask the
U.S. Dictrict Court today for a temporary restraining
order permitting X-rated fare to be shown on campus.
The ACLU and the film groups claim it is a

straightforward case of censorship.
University of Michigan spokesman Terry
Gallagher said the subject "hasn't been an issue on
campus" and that student film groups, which rarely
show X-rated fare, report they have not recieved any
protests. He said the university's ombudsman - who
would likely receive any complaints - has not gotten
any calls and the university administration has not

NEW YORK - William Westmoreland, feeling he has cleared his nam
has dropped his $120 million libel suit against CBS, his lawyers told a judge.,
yesterday. But a network source said the retired general quit because he
knew he couldn't win.
The settlement was announced to U.S. District Judge Perre Leval a few
days before the testimony was to have ended in the 18-week trial. The suit
stemmed from a documentary accusing Westmoreland of suppressing the
true strength of communist forces in Vietnam in 1967 to maintain political
support for the war.
The final and probably the biggest blow to Westmoreland's case was
delivered by retired Col. Gains Hawkins, the man who once was in charge of
sizing up enemy forces for Westmoreland's staff in South Vietnam.
Hawkins flatly contradicted Westmoreland's own testimony, saying that
the general rejected estimates of enemy strength in 1967 because they were
"politically unacceptable."
A CBS source who spoke on condition of anonymity said Westmoreland and
his lawyers "just concluded they didn't have any chance of winning."
Artificial heart patient improves

Dr. Allan Lansing, chairman of the Humana Heart Institute and the
hospital's chief medical spokesman, said Haydon was making a trouble-free
recovery after Sunday's flawless implant.
Lansing said doctors were weaning Haydon from a resperatoar that had
aided his breathing after the implant.
At the same time, Lansing's assessment of Schroeder, 53, of Jasper, Ind.,
has the most pessimistic by the Audubon surgical team since Schroeder suf-

3 killed in South Africa riot
CAPE TOWN, South Africa - Police fired on crowds of stone-throwing
blacks yesterday killing three people and wounding 11 others in clashes
sparked by fears the white-ruled government plans to force blacks to aban-
don a squatters camp, officials said.
Police Capt. Jan Calitz said crowds of up to 3,000 blacks confronted police
when officers surrounded the Crossroads squatters camp, 12 miles from
Cape Town, and sealed off all approach roads early yesterday.
The police action came after youths stoned passing buses and autos, police
Police spokesman Lt. Henry Beck said two men were killed when police
fired rubber bullets and a third was killed by shotgun fire while looting a
liquor store in a neighboring black township.
At least 11 blacks were injured by police in the clashes and four policemen
sustained slight injuries, police said.
Mondale meets with labor leader
BAL HARBOUR, Fla. - AFL-CIO President Lane Kirkland met yester-
day with Walter Mondale and declared the labor federation will battle the
Reagan administration and fight for the political beliefs of organized labor.
"until we get it right."
"We have an obligation to defend our membership through every channel
that's open to us," Kirkland told a news conference when asked how the
federation intended to combat an administration that takes anti-union stan-
Kirkland condemned the administration for, among other things, charging
three union presidents affiliated with the AFL-CIO of violating the Hatch Act
and placing tight limits on the political activities of federal workers.
Mondale said that one subject touched on in his closed meeting with the
council was the accusation during the campaign that the endorsement of his
candidacy by the AFL-CIO general board made him a captive of special in-
"I thought it was a bad rap," Mondale said. "These are-working men and
women. They are part of this country. They never asked me for a thing ex-
cept for justice, for the enforcement of the laws.

Sidon, which came two days after they moved in behind the Israeli pullout.
The Shiites, many of whom were from Beirut, plastered posters of Iran's
Shiite leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini over pictures of Gemayel put up
before his visit Sunday tomark the Israeli withdrawal.
Many of the Shiites were armed with assault rifles or rocket grenade laun-
chers, but no shooting was reported.
