Porn film banned at Indiana 'U'
Students at Indiana University joined
the ranks of the censored in the X-rated
film ban controversy when their
proposed showing of the film Insatiable
was cancelled. Monroe County
Prosecutor Ron Waicukauski said he
intends to prosecute if the film is
"Everything was passed through the
appropriate governing bodies in the
dorm and passed through the Student
Activities Office," said Jennifer
Stephens, president of the residence
hall that planned to show the film.
Stephens said she is angered at the
sudden shift in policy. She said there
has been no problem in the past, adding
that Wright Quad "has a 10-year history
of showing X-rated movies." She feels
the prosecutor has a double standard in
banning their efforts while allowing a
local theatre to continue its practice of
showing pornographic films.
Michael Gordon, Indiana's dean of
students, tempoarily banned X-rated
films on campus this fall when another
group showed "Deep Throat" on the
same weekend women's groups held an
awareness program on violence against
women. The ban was quickly lifted.
The students have postponed their
showing of the film, saying they needed
time to find out what their rights in the
issue are exactly.
"I am personally ready to go to jail
for this," Stephens said. "It is a bad
situation for student groups. I feel pret-
ty bad that students are getting pushed

NIU women bare all for
Men at the University of Illinois will
get a chance to see some of their female
counter parts in a different light soon.
A Dekalb newspaper publisher plans to
market a local version , of Playboy
magazine's "Playmate" calendar on
the UI campus.
Frnak Trebusak is currently offering
a 1985 calendar featuring nude female
students from Northern Illinois Univer-
sity. He has advertised in The Daily
Illini, UI's student newspaper, for
female students willing to pose nude for
Trebusak said three university
women have already responded to his
advertisement, which offers $300 an
hour for posing fully nude and $200 an
hour for a topless session.
The idea originated from a "Coed of
the Week" feature in a Dekalb
newspaper. It depicted attractive
women who are fully clothed. "So
many"guys said they wanted to see
more nudity," Trebusak said. "I
couldn't do that in my newspaper, so I
came up with this calendar."
He said the response to the NIU
calander was "generally favorable,"
and all but 150 of the original 3,000 have
been sold. Trebusak hopes to have the
UI version out by October.

Texas legislator proposes

Stiffer hazing laws for Texas
educational institutions have been
proposed in the state's legislature.
Rep. David Patronella (D-Houston)
sponsored the bill, which was drafted
by a University of Texas junior, Scott
Cobb. The legislation outlines higher
fines and longer jail sentences for those
found guilty of hazing. Liability would

Currently, University of Texas
students found participating in any
hazing activity are fined anywhere
from $25 to $250 or are assessed a jail
term of 10 days to three months. Also,
current law says that the victim of
hazing is considered as guilty as those
who commit the action.
The new proposal would set forth
three degrees of hazing and assess
specific fines based on the severity of
the incident. Hazing without injury
would carry a fine of $500 to $1,000 and a
jail term of three to six months. Hazing
that results in injury would incur
penalties of a $1,000 to $5,000 fine or a
six-month to one-year jail term. Hazing
that results in death would carry
penalties of $5,000 to $10,000 and/or a
jail term of one to two years.
Interfraternity Council Director Eric
Webber said he agreed with the intent
of the legislation, but said parts of the
bill are not realistic-particularly the
section addressing alumni repon-
sibility. He said many people think
alumni condone hazing, but he said that
is not the case.
Drafter of the bill, Cobb, said that
"alumni members put a lot of pressure
on organizations to maintain the status
quo-hazing, in this case."

Univ. of Toledo students
There's a new fraternity forming at
the University of Toledo. A group of
university students claiming the school
is "really a boring campus" have for-
med Veg Kappa Veg and hope school of-
ficials will sanction their anti-lethargy
"It's sort of a backlash against the
whole process of school planning and
organizing," said Doug Patton,
treasurer. "When we're vegetating, we
don't want to do that."
"It's hard to define "Veg-pronoun-
ced like the first syllable of
"vegetable"-but Patton put it in con-
text: "Vegging" is "when you watch
TV and you really don't know that
you're watching TV, it's just a blur."
Veg Kappa Veg submitted its con-
stitution this week to the Student Ac-
tivities Office, the first step in being
sanctioned as a recognized campus
organization, said Daniel
Abrahamowicz, assistant dean for
"It's a really boring campus and
we're trying to do something about it,"
said Veg Kappa Veg vice president
Mike Siffer, who wants to sponsor even-
ts like pogo-stick jumping or Slinky
races, along with more serious projects
on behalf of commuter students, such
as making sure their snack bar isn't
The plan was hatched by a group of
com p uter students who started
meeting this year in a corne r)f the
Student Union-the only place they had
to go during sometimes-lengthy waits
"Veg" was thought too lowly a name
for the fledgling group, so Kappa was
added because it seems to be a common
middle letter in fraternity and sorority
names, Siffer said,

Bush delivers peace message
to Gorbachev; sunumit possible
Vice-President George Bush arrived in Moscow yesterday for the funeral
of President Konstantin Chernenko, bringing new Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev a "message of peace" from President Reagan and calling for a
fresh era in superpower relations.
The White House raised the prospect of an early summit between Gor-
bachev and Reagan, citing improved "atmospherics" due to renewed arms
talks and the Kremlin power shift.
World reaction to Gorbachev's takeover was favorable. In Peking, China
welcomed a call from the new Soviet leader for an improvement in relations
between the two Communist rivals, saying Peking "cherished the same
Nyeanwhile, in London, British leaders who got a close up view of Gor-
bachev three months ago praised his relaxed style but yesterday cautioned
against expecting any sudden softening of Soviet policies.
Gunmen storm Turkish embassy
OTTAWA - Three Armenian terrorists shot their way into the Turkish
Embassy yesterday, killing a security guard and taking 11 people hostage
before surrendering to police more than four hours later.
Turkey's ambassador to Canada, Coskun Kirca, 52, suffered multiple frac-
tures when he jumped or was pushed from an embassy window, said Sgt.
Garry Rae of the Ottawa police department.
The ambassador's wife and a daughter were among the hostages, all of
whom were released unharmed after police used bullhorns to negotiate with
the gunmen for about an hour.
In calls to news agencies, the gunnen said they were members of the Ar-
menian Revolutionary Army and were seeking vengeance for an alleged
massacre of Armenians by Turks in 1915.
The gunmen were not immediately identified. They were taken to police
headquarters for questioning.
New lead reopens Goetz case
NEW YORK - Manhattan's district attorney announced yesterday he
would resubmit the Bernhard Goetz subway shooting case to a grand jury,
saying there was new evidence in the case.
Prosecutor Robert Morgenthau refused to say what the new evidence was
but said it "supports re-presenting the case; it gives us a legal basis for
resubmitting it" to a grand jury next week.
Acting state Supreme Court Justice Stephen Crane signed the order
authorizing that the case be resubmitted after prosecutors presented the
new evidence, Morgenthau said.
Joseph Kelner, one of Goetz's attorneys, said he had "no reaction at this
moment... We have to study the judge's order before we do anything or
Guild writers refuse contract
LOS ANGELES - Television studios slapped more reruns on their
schedules yesterday as the Writers Guild of America refused to tally a vote
on a tentative contract, saying members now are willing to endure a lengthy
strike and will stay off the job for at least another week.
The late-night Johnny Carson and David Letterman programs and
"Saturday Night Live," the first to feel the impact, immediately reverted to
reruns. However, writers for the top-rated "The Bill Cosby Show" continued
work on unfinished shows.
Union leaders said they hoped negotiations in the 8-day-old strike could
resume immediately, but a spokesman for the Alliance of Motion Picture
and Television Producers said he knew of no such plans.
A stormy meeting that ended early yesterday, attended by up to 3,000
writers, reflected a dramatically militant swing from the initial 60 percent
vote authorizing a strike, guild President Ernest Lehman said at a news
A vote on the proposed contract was taken late Monday, but members
later voted by voice to seal the uncounted ballots until next Monday, when
another vote was planned in Hollywood, said guild spokesman Mickey
Kirkpatrick to join Republicans
WASHINGTON - Jeane Kirkpatrick, the self-described "lifelong
Democrat" who has become a favorite of conservative Republicans, will
complete her journey to the political right next month by switching her party
registration to the GOP.
The U.N. ambassador's party switch will be celebrated on April 3 at a
reception described as "welcoming Jeane Kirkpatrick to the party," accor-
ding to Republican sources who spoke only on condition they not be iden-
tified. The reception is being sponsored by the GOP Women's Political Ac-
tion League, a group headed by President Reagan's daughter, Maureen.
"I'm not denying it," Kirkpatrick said yesterday at the United Nations
when asked about the impending party switch. She declined further com-
ment, except to say that "I've been making fairly clear that I had to think
seriously about bringing my formalregistration into line with my behavior
and my views."
While often mentioned by conservatives as a potential candidate for
political office, including president, Kirkpatrick recently told The
"I have never considered running for office. I am not now considering
running for office. I have no intentions of running for office."
