Prof r
Harvard University, in an un-
precedented statement, revealed that a
tenured professor of government will
resign in the wake of an allegation of
sexual harassment.
Prof. Douglas Hibbs has tendered his
resignation following a complaint filed
in December 1984 regarding an incident
with a female student in May 1983.
The statement said following
discussion and consultation, Hibbs
sought a medical leave and prepared
his resignation, to be effective at the
end of his absence. The resignation
follows charges from both a student at
the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology and a former Harvard
faculty member.
Hibbs, nationally recognized in his
field of political science, is the third
senior member of the university's
government department to be involved
in sexual harassment case in recent
years. The other two cases resulted in

Defense buildup irks AFL-CIO
BAL HARBOUR, Fla. - The AFL-CIO executive council yesterday called
for a freeze on military spending, and the labor federation's president said
the Reagan administration has "flunked a test" and failed to prove the
necessity for a huge defense buildup.
The 35 member council also met with Sen. Robert Packwood and agreed to
"lean hard" on the House of Representatives to try to kill any administration
proposal that would tax workers' benefits.
The council also called for an extension of voluntary auto import quotas
with Japan, changing to a system based on a percentage of U.S. sales that
could lower the number of imports coming into the country.
"The Reagan administration's solution to the budget deficit is to deny
federal services to middle- and low-income Americans who pay the major
share of federal taxes," AFL-CIO President Lane Kirkland said at a news
He said the AFL-CIO remains committed to a strong defense, "but we are
equally committed to a strong economy and social justice at home.
Supreme Court to consider
religious meetings during school
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court said yesterday it will consider letting
public schools allow students to meet during school hours for prayer and
religious worship.
The justices, urged on by the Reagan administration, said it will review a
ruling that banned such meetings at a Williamsport, Pa., high school even
though the school allows students to conduct virtually all types of non-
religious meetings during the same periods.
The student religious group initially won approval to meet, but after about
45 students attended the first meeting they were told further meetings would
be "legally improper."
Administration lawyers attacked a federal appeals court's ban on the
meetings, saying it casts constitutional doubt on a new federal law requiring
public schools to provide "equal access" for student religous groups.
The high court's decision is expected sometime next year.
Spanish jet crash kills 151
BILBAO, Spain - A Spanish jetliner clipped a television tower and slam-
med into a mountainside in a huge burst of flame yesterday, killing all 151
people aboard including two Americans, Bolivia's labor minister and a for-
mer Spanish foreign minister.
The Iberia Airlines Boeing 727 en route from Madrid to the northeastern
city of Bilbao had descended to 3,000 feet and was preparing to land at
Bilbao's Sondica airport 18 miles away. It hit northern Spain's main TV
transmitting tower atop Oiz mountain and crashed, civjl aviation authorities
Bilbao air controllers said they lost contact with the pilot 15 minues before
the plane crashed. Civil aviation authorities said the weather at the time of
the accident was cloudy but did not impair visibility.
Secret police raid apartheid
opponents, arrest 6 for treason
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Security police raided offices and
homes in'cities across the country yesterday, arresting six opponents of race
segregation on warrants for'high treason.
Seven blacks were killed, police said, in a second day of battles between.
police and squatters in a shantytown outside Cape Town, bringing the two-:
day death toll to 13.
The raids and arrests, one of the severest apartheid crackdowns in years,;
set the stage for the largest treason trial since the late 1950s. At that time the
government unsuccessfully prosecuted 156 opponents of South Africa's
whites-only rule in a single court case.
Lt. Vic Haynes of police headquarters in Pretoria confirmed the treasonr
arrests. Groups opposed to South Africa's apartheid, or institutionalized
racial segregation, said several other people were held for questioning.
Those arrested were identified as Albertina Sisulu, co-president of the
United Democratic Front anti apartheid group and wife of jailed African
National Congress leader Walter Sisulu; Sam.Kikine and Isaac Ngcobo of
the South African Allied Workers Union; Ismael Mohamed of the front's
Transvall Province branch, and Frank Chikane and Cassim Saloojee, both
senior officials of the Democratic Front.
Senate budget plan rejected
WASHINGTON - Top Reagan administration officials yesterday rejected
Senate proposals for an across-the-board budget freeeze this year that would
include defense spending and Social Security cost-of-living increases.
Many Senate leaders have advocated a freeze, but Treasury Secretary
James Baker told the Senate Appropriations Committee, "We wouldn't get
the support we need downtown" for such an approach, referring to President
And Budget Director David Stockman said such talk was a "cop out."
"You may talk about freezing defense, but that isn't going to happen and you
know it," Stockman said.
Meanwhile, the chairman of the House Budget Committee repeated his

call for cuts in domestic programs as well as President Reagan's defense
buildup, but signaled his intention to delay action until Senate Repubicans
move on the administration's proposed budget.

"The state spends a lot of money to
subsidize the schools," Shapiro said.
"You can't impact the number of health
care professionals by cutting
enrollment. What you can do is impact
the quality of our schools."
"The commission recommends that a
substantial portion of funds for new
university activities - about $70
million - come from savings generated
by reducing support for training the
health professionals," said Jay Rosen,
director of planning for the state Office

of Health and Medical Affairs. (OHM).
"What is recommended is not a reduc-
tion in state support for higher
education, but rather a redirection of
funds to more appropriate areas."
"The sciences are changing almost
daily," said Shapiro. "The fact that
anyone would think that we have the
capability to forecast what the need of
physicians will be 60 years from now or
even six is staggering."
Rosen also predicted that by the year
2010, there would be 293 fully-trained
physicians for every 100,000 people in

responded to the blaze, seemed to back
Davis's contention. He testified that in
the intense heat of a gasoline fire, most
people "don't worry about getting their
clothes on.
"If (Picozzi) could get dressed in a
room with so much heat, I wish he
would come up to our department and
train our personnel," Schnur said.
ACCORDING TO Picozzi, he was
asleep when the sound of the fire woke
him up. He said he put on his clothes,
and tried to leave through the door, but
the flames held him back. In "utter
terror," Picozzi said he ran to the win-
dow and stood out on the third-story
ledge for about ten minutes before he
fell to the Tappan St. side of the Law
,Quad, breaking his back.
After spending a few months
recuperating, Picozzi said he tried to
get the dean of the Law School, Terran-
ce Sandalow, to write an unqualified
letter of good standing for his ap-
plication to Yale Law School.
Sandalow allegedly said he would
mention in the letter that Picozzi was
an arson suspect, even though the
prosecuting attorney's office felt there
was not enough evidence to take Picozzi
to court.
Finally, Picozzi sued Sandalow and
the University, saying his civil rights
had been violated and asking for
millions of dollars in damages. Without
Sandalow's unconditional letter, Picoz-
zi said, he cannot get into Yale. The

U.S. District Court judge ordered the
University to give Picozzi an ad-
ministrative hearing, with a neutral
party as judge.
The hearing was characterized by an
informality not normally seen in
regular courts.
Former University law student
James Martin told local attorney
Robert Guenzel, who is serving as the
judge, that' during the fire students
were "on our hands and knees"
because of "a fraternity ritual." He
then became serious and explained that
students were attempting to extinguish
the fire and had to avoid the thick
Other testimony was not so frivolous.
Brian Meyers, who was a gas station at-
tendant at the time of the fire, said
Picozzi bought between two and five
dollars worth of gas for a brown Pon-
tiac on the day of the fire, but that
Picozzi may have put some of the gas in
a container since Meyers couldn't see
exactly where the gas tank nozzle was.
Meyers said he remembered Picozzi
because he is missing the tips of two
fingers on his right hand because of a
previous injury.
But Picozzi's attorney attacked
Meyers's credibility by pointing out in-
consistencies in his testimony.
