Literary magazine sues Yale
IN BRIEF ,
Publishers of the Yale Literary
Magazine filed a lawsuit earlier this
month seeking $10 million in damages
from Yale University.
The suit charged the university with
organizing a "conspiracy" against the
magazine and violating the Sherman
Antitrust Act. Andrei Navrozov, the
editor of the publication, is also seeking
an appeal of a 1983 court case in which
the court prohibited the magazine from
using the university's name.
In the suit, Navrozov claims that the
last court trial was a "sham". He also
argues that Yale has been "harassing"
the magazine since 1978, when mem-
bers of the American Literary Society
bought the magazine from a student
group for one dollar.
The magazine also charges Yale with
the fraudulent assertion of exclusive
rights to use the name "Yale" and with
violation of the First Amendment and
due process of law.

Leave it to the engineers to spoil a

Engineering Council has drawn up a list

Joe Lehman, council president, said

Lehman said he met with University
President Stanley Ikenberry to discuss
the council's recommendation. He said
Ikenberry was "pleased" with the
proposals, and that he "appreciated the
work the students put in."
The council's proposals included
using Assembly Hall personnel to check
entering students for "contraband
items," to distribute caps and gowns af-

the most desruptive units farthest away
from the stage and audience areas.

SACUA is broadenin
By STACEY SHONK
Robert Green, the newly elected chair of the Senate Advisory Committee for
University Affairs said yesterday that he supports, the committee's progress
towards broadening its scope of administrative concern.
Green, who was elected to a one-year term as SACUA chair Monday, said that
last year's committee expanded its interests to include more than just faculty
salaries, benefits, and working conditions.
"THIS PAST year SACUA broadened its concern beyond the traditional,
parochial faculty interests," Green said, "We were involved not only with those
interests, but also moved to be involved with the future of the University."
g its view, chair says
"This year we've focused on education, the future of the University, research,
administration - the central issues that affect the University. Hopefully, we
won't be changing much," Green said.
While Green noted that the executive faculty committee had no authority in the
actual administrative decisions, he said that its advice carries significant in-
fluence in them. He said the committee also serves to educate and generate ac-
tion from the faculty of the University's 18 schools and colleges.
GREEN, A professor of internal medicine, was elected by unanimous vote of
the SACUA committee, as was William Stebbins who was voted to the commit-
tee's vice-chair position.

Soviet, American versions of
U.S. officer's death conflict
MOSCOW - The Soviet Union said yesterday that a U.S. Army major shot
and killed in East Germany was spying on forbidden ground and that the Un-
ited States is spreading a "deliberately false version" of the incident.
The United States says Maj. Arthur Nicholson Jr. was on a legitimate
mission, in an unrestricted area, and the shooting was tantamount to mur-
der. A U.S. Embassy spokesman in Moscow called the report by the official
Tass news agency an attempt "to justify an action that just cannot be
The official Soviet news agency Tass said the sentry acted properly and
that repsonsibility for the death "lies fully on the American side."
Michael Burch, a U.S. assistant defense secretary said in Luxembourg,
"When we find the Soviets, even in restricted areas, we simply take their
cameras away and send them home. We don't shoot them."
A Soviet sentry shot Nicholson on Sunday near the East German town of
Ludwigslust about 30 miles from the West German border. U.S, officials said
Nicholson's driver was prevented from going to the wounded man with his
first aid kit, and the major was left to die without medical attention.
Judge blocks Mich. orn law
FLINT - U.S. District Judge Stewart Newblatt yesterday blocked enfor-
cement of a key portion of Michigan's new anti-pornographic law.
Enjoined by Newblatt was a provision of the law which would have im-
posed fines of up to $5 million for a pornography dealers on a second offense.
The judge called it vague.
Other sections imposing lesser penalties were left standing.
The law, passed last year, is scheduled to take effect Friday.
The $5 million fine for a second offense by merchants whose main business
is porn would have been the nation's highest, according to critics of the
U.S. charges G.E. with fraud
PHILADELPHIA - General Electric Co., the nation's fourth-largest
defense contractor, was indicted by a federal grand jury yesterday on
charges it defrauded the government of about $800,000 on a nulcear warhead
The company was charged with four counts of "making and presenting
false claims to the United States" in violation of the U.S. Code and 104 counts
of making false statements to an agency of the United States said U.S. Attor-
ney Edward Dennis, who announced the indictment.
The indictment also charged GE employee Joseph Calabria and former
employee Roy Baessler with two counts each of "making false declarations"
before a federal grand jury, Dennis said.
If convicted, GE faces a maximum penalty of $1,080,000 fine and Calabria
and Baessler each face a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a
$20,000 fine, Dennis said.
A Pentagon official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said an indic-
tment of GE "will almost assuredly be the largest defense contractor ever
charged with criminal counts."
High court bars Okla. schools
from firing gay advocates
WASHINGTON - A evenly divided Supreme Court barred Oklahoma
public school boards yesterday from firing teachers who advocate, en-
courage or promote homosexuality.
The justices, by a 4-4 vote, upheld a federal appeals court ruling that an
Oklahoma law allowing such firings violated teachers' free-speech rights.
Such tie votes do not set any national precedent, because it is possible that
in some future case the same issue will be decided by all nine justices.
But yesterday's development means the 10th U.S. circuit Court of Appeals
ruling that threw out the Oklahoma law bars any attempt to draft such a law
in other states within that federal judicial circuit - Colorado, Kansas, New
Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.
The National Gay Task Force, which had challenged the Oklahoma law in
a test case lawsuit against the Oklahoma City school board, called the ruling
a key victory. The law would have regulated what teachers said outside of
school, not just their speech inside the classroom.

Supreme Court to review'U' med school case
(Continued from Page 1)
The University defended its action,
saying that Ewing had been warned
that another failure would result in his
dismissal. According to Davis, the
other 32 students who have failed the
test in the past and were allowed to
retake it were not already on academic
probation as Ewing was.
According to Davis, the University's
appeal will focus on two points. The fir-
st deals with an Eleventh Amendment
clause which states that a government
body cannot be tried in another court
system. Davis said that as a state in-
stitution, the University should have
been tried in a state, not federal court.
SECONDLY, Davis maintains that
the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals was
overstepping it's bounds when it over-
turned the previous courts decision. In
overturning the decision, the appeals
court cited previous incedents in which
other University medical students had
been allowed to retake the exam.
Davis said that the criteria used in
these cases should not have been
relevent in deciding if Ewing's right to
due process had been violated. "All
they're allowed to do, according to our
position, is (determine) whether or not
he was given a hearing," he said.

no choice if anti-abortion laws were
passed. This was quickly refuted by the
pro-life viewers with the statement that
the fetus doesn't have a choice now.
In the head of the debate, the audien-
ce held complete silence as one student
stated that he had a two-year-old
daughter thanks to his pro-life choice.
Pro-life members say the movie has
given their campaign against abortion
new momentum. Pro-life
organizations are presently financing
the distribution of Silent Scream
videocassettes to state legislators.
