Student banned from career fair1 IN BRIEF

A hotel, restaurant, and in-
stitutional management senior at
Michigan State University was denied
access to the school's Career Expo
because of his appearance, A. J.
Ostezan, who wore a white, robelike
garment and several strands of beads,
claims that he was discriminated
against because he did not fit into what
the administration deemed proper at-
"They told me, 'You're not the image
MSU wants,' " said Ostezan. "I was
dressed in some of my best clothes -
what I intend to dress in during my job.
It was clearly discrimination because
of the way I looked."
" Ostezan accused John Schneider, a
student coordinator for the program,
and Stephen Miller, an assistant HRI
professor, of making insulting remarks
when they told him he could not enter.
Schneider said invitations to the event
stressed students to wear ''professional
dress" and said Ostezan "looked like he
was wearing a pair of long johns or

Ostezan said other students attended
wearing jeans or corduroys and
sweaters despite their lack of
"professional attire."
He said he will present his case to the
American Civil Liberties Union, and
that he is uncertain whether the case
will be pursued through University or
outside legal channels.

fraternity sells
raunchy handbook
The sale of a raunchy handbook
dealing with a fraternity's "little
sister" program has prompted Univer-
sity of Florida officials to suspend the
fraternity, and will likely spur in-
vestigations of other houses on campus.
The handbook, which names certain
female students and how many beers it
takes to persuade each to have sexual
intercourse, was sold by the Beta Theta
Pi house for $2 a copy.
The fraternity says the book was
meant as a joke, butadministrators are
not amused.
"Whether is was meant as a joke or
as a National Lampoon, we don't find it

MX funds may kill arms talks
WASHINGTON-With new arms talks one week away, President Reagan
warned Congress yesterday cancellation of the MX missile would amount to
unilateral disarmament and ruin a "unique opportunity" for reducing
nuclear arsenals.
"Let us not unilaterally weaken our position as we begin the talks,"
Reagan told House Republicans at the White House. "The worst signal we
could send the Soviets would be to halt production of the MX 'Peacekeeper.'
Speaking before members of the American Legion Defense Secretary
Caspar Weinberger said, "The MX missile offers the only near term way to
show the Kremlin that, despite its hardened missile silos and offensive
missile buildup, it cannot neutralize America's nuclear deterrent."
In Congress, administration allies introduced resolutions that will serve as
vehicles for renewed consideration of a drive to win release of $1.5 billion in
MX production funds. The issue will come to a vote later this month.
House OKs farm credit bailout
WASHINGTON-The House yesterday approved a credit bailout for
financially troubled farmers and their lenders, setting up a politically
charged confrontation with a veto-minded President Reagan.
The 255-168 vote came as several hundred farmers lobbied on Capitol Hill
for more government aid, telling anyone who would listen that Washington
doesn't appreciate the extent of the financial crisis in the farm belt.
The credit measure now goes to President Reagan, who has made it clear
he intends to veto it as too costly and unnecessary.
Reagan "seems to want the farmers to cry 'uncle' before he gives them the
help they need," said House Speaker Thomas O'Neill Jr., who decided to
shortcut normal procedures and send a Senate-passed version of the bill
straight to the White House.
The measure provides $100 million in interest subsidies, $1.85 billion in new
loan guarantees and about $7 billion in immediate advances on crop loans X
normally not received until harvest time.
O'Neill said the president "can veto the farm bill, but he can't veto the
problem. If we can spend hundreds of billions putting missiles in the ground,
we can spend half a billion to put seed in the ground."

dean of student affairs.
In a prepared statement, the frater-
nity president said the handbook, which
also contains racist remarks, is not an
official publication of and is not con-
doned by the fraternity.
"Little sister" programs involve
female students in the activities of the
fraternity. Often these women are not

Georgraphy survey
An informal survey asking Ohio State
University students world-related
geography questions revealed an
amazing lack of information. W. Randy
Smith, an associate professor who
prepared the survey, said it reflects a
problem in today's educational system.
"It's more than just a question of
place names," said Smith. "It's a
question of how the pieces of a global
map fit together; how the world in-

About 150 University of Pennsylvania
students occupied the office of
President Sheldon Hackney recently to
protest the university's treatment of

One of the demands put forth by the
students was the dismissal of Murray
Dolfman, a lecturer who students say

students in his class.
The students also demanded that the
university provide racism awareness
instruction for professors and teaching
assistants, and increase the number of
black faculty members.

surpre urine test for drug use
BOSTON-Police officers who appear red-eyed, woozy or simply a little
"out of it" will be given surprise urine tests in the first program of its kind in
the nation aimed at detecting illicit drug use, the Boston Police Department
announced yesterday.
"We're not going to march into the station house and shout, 'Freeze. Line
up. Everyone take a urine test.' It won't be random," said spokesman
Robert O'Toole. "But if someone is acting strange or out of it, and we've
been around so we know what to look for, they will be asked for a urine sam-
Gerald Arenberg, executive director of the -American Federation of
Police, called it a "pioneer program," and said he had not heard of anything
similar elsewhere in the nation.
Boston police officials said the 1,800-member department is not beset by a
major drug problem. The new program, O'Toole said, was the idea of new

26,000 U.K. miners. still strike
LONDON-Most of Britain's coal miners marched back to work yesterday
behind union banners, bagpipes and brass bands-many with fists clenched
in defiance. About 26,000 stayed out, demanding that fired comrades be rein-
stated, or refusing to cross picket lines.
Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher hailed the end of the year-long strike,
which she said "set family-against family, brother against brother and
miner against miner." She added, however, that there would be no amnesty
for miners fired for violence or other strike-related criminal acts.
"Our people are walking back with pride," declared ArthurScargill, the
Marxist union chief who directed the miners' effort. "The battle goes on until
the threat of unemployment is lifted from our communities."
In most coal fields, the strikers-who failed in the long and bitter effort to
make the National Coal Board back off its plan to close unprofitable
mines-massed at dawn and paraded by the thousand behind brass bands
and bagpipers.Ia
They carried children in their arms, wave Union Jack flags and wore
badges saying, "I backed my union-I didn't scab." They shouted and sang,
"Arthur Scargill, we will support you ever more."
Faulty cargo halts shuttle flight
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.-Two days before it was to have vaulted into
orbit, space shuttle Challenger made a slow trip from the launch pad back to
a hangar yesterday, only the fifth such rollback in the U.S. manned space
The space plane, its missions scrubbed because of a fault in a satellite it
was to carry, was transported on a giant tracked carrier traveling at
maximum speed of 1 mph. The three-mile trip took more than six hours; the
planned 177-mile leap into orbit would-have taken just eight minutes.
Challenger had been scheduled for liftoff tomorrow, but the National
Aeronautics and Space Administration canceled the mission Friday because
of a design defect in a timing system in a tracking and data relay satellite
TDRS in the ship's cargo bay.
