State Senate passes abortion bill
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
LANSING (UPI) - The Senate gave
final approval yesterday to a ban on
funding for welfare abortions - an act
certain to be countered with a veto by
Gov. James Blanchard.
Most observers agree abortion foes
have their best chance in years of
mustering the two-thirds vote
necessary to override that veto and
finally end state funding of the
ADOPTION OF THE ban was seen as
a forgone conclusion and merely a
warm-up for the real showdown on the

cutoff from mounting a spirited, if
In fact, despite the lopsided 25-8 vote
in favor of the bill, most of the speeches
came from opponents. Senate
Republican leader John Engler made a

"THIS IS an opportunity to fill the
gap if they wish," he said.
Michigan is one of only 12 states
which continue to pay for welfare abor-
tions. Six of them, including New York
and California, do so under court order.
Blanchard and his predecessor have
used the veto 13 times since 1978 to
preserve the program in this state.
Abortion opponents say gains in last
fall's House elections should give them
the strength needed to override Blan-
chard's veto this year. The Senate,
usually has had no problem mustering
the needed two-thirds vote.
During the last fiscal year, the state
paid for 18,600 elective abortions at a
total cost of $5.9 million.

THE BILL, which already had passed
the House, excludes abortions from
coverage under Michigan's Medicaid
program unless they are necessary to
save the mother's life:
Sen. Harry DeMaso sought in vain to
broaden that exception to include the
victims of incest and rape.
Sen. John Kelley (D-Detroit) said
abortion foes are imposing their
"private morality... only on the poor
people of Michigan."
BUT ENGLER said the bill is "sim-
ply resolving who pays" for abortion.'

emphatically the state should not pay,"

was saturated last year and everyone
became sick of him, according to
The manager of Make Waves on State
St. says that at her store both Dean and
Monroe share the position of best-
selling poster personality. She
estimates that she sells about 10
Monroe posters per week.
REASONS FOR Monroe's and Dean's
appeal on campus vary with the fan.
For many Monroe admirers her image
as a sex goddess is her main appeal.
Dean is often idolized for his rebellious
attitude. And both seem to share the
fame associated with an individual who
dies before they have a chance to
realize their full potential.
LSA freshman Eric Champnella says
he likes the character Dean portrayed
in his movies. "He told authority to
buzz off," Champnella says.
He says he also believes Dean's death
in a car crash on Sept. 30, 1955-one
month before his.most well known film,
Rebel Without A Cause, was
released-played an important part in
his popularity. "No one looks at the bad
things after a tragic death like that,"
In contrast to Monroe's numerous
films, Dean only appeared in three and
after his death Warner Brothers
Studios was literally swamped with
mail from all over the world. The first
actor to be nominated for an Academy
Award posthumously, Dean was
thought to portray characters involved
in a clash between the older and
DOUGLAS GRAHAM, a Markley
resident advisor, says he attributes
Dean's fame to "a combination of the
wild and the youthful image."
Monroe, on the other hand, was a
veteran of 30 films, including Diamonds
are a Girl's Best Friend, and The Seven
Year Itch, two of her most famous. Her
marriages to baseball great Joe
Dimaggio and playwright and Univer-
sity alumnus Arthur Miller also
provoked public interest in her life.
Playboy Magazine, in an article in-
troducing Monroe as its first playmate,
described the movie actress as
"natural sex personified." That
description may have added to her
image as an American sex symbol.
JOHN METZGER, an LSA freshman
who describes himself as a "lustful ad-
mirer" of Monroe, says he thinks
Monroe's success continues because
"everybody lusted after her."
The manager of Make Waves said
Monroe's tragic death due to an over-
dose of sleeping pills may explain her
appeal. Shegsays she thinks the
primary reason for her popularity,
however, is the outrageousness she
"I know some people who think she's
the sexiest woman ever, but most buy
because it's a statement of our
decadent society," she says. "Nobody
is serious these days."
LSA senior John Schmidt says he sees
Monroe as a legend. "She had
_ something that sparked in everyone,"'
WASHINGTON-The United States expects Japan to offer greater market,
access to U.S. products in exchange for the removal of voluntary quotas on
automobile exports to this country, administration officials said yesterday.
With President Reagan urged by his senior advisers to stand aside and
allow the quotas to expire March 31, officials indicated any such decision.
would carry an implicit request that Japan offer trade concessions in return.
"We want reciprocal action," one official said.
The Cabinet Council on Commerce and Trade unanimously agreed.
Tuesday that the decision on a possible fifth year of auto export restraints
should be left to the Japanese. The recommendation was described as a
tacit decision to allow the restraints to lapse.
Japanese officials have told their U.S. counterparts that exports to the
United States, limited to 1.85 million units a year under the quotas, would go.
no higher than about 2.2 million if the restraints are lifted.
U.S., Soviets end Mideast talks
VIENNA-U.S. and Soviet officials concluded two days of talks on the'
Middle East yesterday-their first in more than a decade-as Yasser F,
Arafat's Palestine Liberation Organization endorsed a new Jordanian-PLO
Neither side had any immediate public comment on the Vienna talks,
which U.S. officials had said should be seen only as an "exchange of views'"
instead of negotiations.
It was generally presumed that the closed-door talks-the superpowers'
first high-level, official discussions on the region since 1973-covered the
Arab-Israeli conflict, Lebanon, the Persian Gulf was and the Soviet oc-
cupation of Afghanistan.
Western analysts in the Austrian capital said during the opening session of
the talks that the U.S. delegation might propose a Soviet role in Middle East
peace negotiations if Moscow were to fulfill certain conditions.
Faulty map found *n plane crash
BILBAD, Spain-Iberia airlines admitted yesterday the pilot of a jetliner
that clipped a television tower and smashed into a mountain, killing all 148
people aboard, was using a faulty map but insistedthat was not the cause of
Aviation officials said pilot Jose Juis Patino was flying the Boeing 727 off-
course and too low Tuesday when the plane slammed into Oiz mountain, 18
miles from Bilbao in the northern Basque region, on a flight from Madrid.
They offered no explanation for the iIcorrect course.
Three Americans were killed in the crash, the third major air disaster in
Spain in less than 15 months, along with Bolivian Labor Minister Gonialo
"Something's wrong in Spanish aviation when there are so many acciden-
ts," said pilots union President Manuel Lopez, who charged Tuesday's crash
was the result of a faulty map supplied by Iberia to its aviators.
Nineteen victims have been identified, officials said.
Heart implant patients improve
LOUISVILLE, Ky.-Aritificial heart patient William Schroeder, set back
by strokes, fever and discouragement, has undergone a "dramatic im-
provement" and might be well enough to leave the hospital next week, a
hospital spokesman said yesterday.
That assessment was a complete turnabout from Monday, when the same
spokesman said Schroeder was so ill and low in spirits he might never leave
the Humana Hospital Audubon.
On Monday, Dr. Allan Lansing said Schroeder "appears to be withdrawn"
and was "very weak, tired and discouraged." His strokes had affected his short-
term memory. A summary of Lansing's remarks released by the hospital
said Schroeder's illness "has raised doubts in the minds of the medical staff
about whether he will be able to leave the hospital."
Schroeder became the first artificial heart patient ever to leave the
hospital when he took a 15-minute ride into the Tuesday afternoon sunshine
in Humana Hospital Audobon's pa-king lot.
Meanwhile, artificial heart recipient No. 3, Murray Haydon, who got a
plastic and metal mechanical heart Sunday, continued his smooth recovery.
Thatcher supports Reagan's
policies in White House speech
WASHINGTON-British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher voiced
strong support yesterday for President Reagan's "Star Wars" research
program and praised his exonomic policies, declaring, "Now the sun is
rising in the West."
Thatcher, the Conservative Party leader whose foreign policy and
economic views closely parallel Reagan's, met with the president at the
White House to review arms control, the Middle East and economic mat-
ters-with attention likely to focus on the flagging British pound.
"I firmly support President Reagan's decision to pursue research into
defense against ballistic nuclear missiles," she told House and Senate mem-
bers in the crowded House chamber.
By embracing the Star Wars effort; Thatcher put herself at odds with those
in Western Europe who fear it might encourage the United States to with-
draw its nuclear umbrella from the continent, or escalate the arms race and
destabilize the balance of power.

Arson trial attracts
curious law students
(Continued from Page 1)
SILBER ASKED Miltenburg whether
he had mimicked Picozzi's mannerisms
and asked Miltenburg to "demonstrate
it for me."
Miltenburg, whose testimony was of-
ten less than serious, readily obliged.
"Hi!" he snapped nasally. Miltenburg
said the Picozzi greeting became
something like a secret handshake -
an inside joke in the law school.
But after all the jokes and stories
about Picozzi's past behavior, Milten-
burg became serious. He said he did not
recall his whereabouts the night before
the incident because "I knew I hadn't
set the fire."
The trials which took place in a mock
courtroom in the Law Quad, attracted
dozens of curious law students, some of
whom knew Picozzi.
Tony Flores, a third-year law
student, said he thought Picozzi was
capable of setting the fire.
Rick Garcia, a second year law
student, said he enjoyed the light-
hearted atmosphere of the trial. "For
me it's educational," he added. "I'm
here to see how attorneys deal with
evidence and procedure.'
