Student demands restitution for bike wheel,


(Continued from Page 1)
Homyak said that members of the
fraternity who were present apologized
for the incident. They said the pledge
class had been in charge of building the
cart for the race.
THE MEMBERS said that the
fraternity would foot the bill for the
wheels and told the owners to get in
touch with the fraternity officers the
following week, he said.
Although the fraternity members
promised payment for the tires,
Homyak and the other two owners said
they are encountering more difficulty
than they had anticipated in getting
their money back.
One of the unidentified owners went
to Sigma Chi on the Monday ;following:

the theft. "They assured me they're
going to pay but I don't think that's
going to happen," he said. "Well,
they'll have to pay - we have the

Homyak said that a friend of his, who
lives in South Quad and is a member of
the fraternity, advised them to get
estimates for their wheels so that they
could receive payment. Homyak said
that because his bike was an older
model, his estimate for the rim, tire,
inner tube, and labor totals $46.22. The
other two estimates are $19.50 each, one

of the unidentified owners said.
Although Homyak said he has sub-
mitted two bills so far, he said he hasn't
received payment yet. The other two
owners have also turned in their bills,
and have not received compensation.
HOMYAK SAID he was told that fie
would receive $10 for his rim because
fraternity President Andy Cooke wasn't
satisfied with the original estimate.
"I'd like to know where I could get a
rim for $10," Homyak said.
Despite repeated attempts, Cooke
could not be reached for comment.
A Sigma Chi member in charge of the
pledge class, who asked that his name
be withheld, explained why the owners
haven't received compensation yet.
ALTHOUGH he admitted that the
pledge class did take the tires for the
cart and were consequently repriman-
ded, he said the fraternity is only
responsible for two of the three stolen
wheels. He said the other two wheels

used on the cart belonged to members
of the house.
The Sigma Chi officer said that they
were unhappy with the estimates
because they never got to see the
damaged property after the owners
claimed their tires.
He said he suspects that only the rims
were damaged and that the fraternity
should not be charged for the tires or
inner tubes because they weren't
originally damaged, he said.
The officer said that the fraternity
would pay for two of the rims. "We just.
want to see the property," he said. He
also said that the pledge class would
have returned the wheels to their
owners after the race.
The hearing for Homyak's suit in
small claims court is scheduled for May
1, according to Homyak.
"It's really ironic that for the Share
the Spirit Week they had to steal
someone's stuff so they could give
money for charity," Homyak said.

Reagan begins Contra aid blitz
WASHINGTON-President Reagan began one of the toughest selling jobs
of his presidency yesterday and exhorted Congress to "act quickly and
responsibility" to approve $14 million in aid to Nicaraguan rebels or risk
U.S. prestige and credibility.
Reagan echoed the theme of his successful campaign last month for the
MX missile in asking Congress to again close ranks behind his foreign
policy to demonstrate U.S. unity and resolve.
"I'm asking Congress to join me in the bipartisan spirit so essential to our.
security by providing this small amount-$14 million-for the more than
15,000 Nicaraguans who are struggling for democracy," Reagan said:.
"It's so little," he added, "yet such an important symbol of our resolve-a
signal to all of Central American and, yet, to those everywhere in the world
who depend on us"
The appeal came as Reagan plunged into a round of public appearances
and White House meetings intended to spotlight his offer to provide the rebel
Contras with only food, clothing, and medical supplies if the Nicaraguan
government agrees to a cease-fire and peace talks with its opposition.
Prisoners hold 20 hostages
ODENVILLE, Ala.-Inmates took control of a section of a state prisoir
yesterday, holding the warden and at least 20 others hostage after seizing
guns and beating two people unconscious, authorities said.
Six people were wounded, including five employees and one inmate who
was shot, officials said.
Shots were fired when up to 200 inmates took over a central records office
at the 1,000-prisoner St. Clair County Correctional Facility yesterday mor-
ning, initially trapping about 40 guards and employees, officials said.
Some employees were able to get out, but Warden Larry Spears and 20 to
25 others, including at least six women, were trapped, said John Hale, the
prison system information officer.
The inmates demanded changes in operations at the medium-and-
maximum-security facility, and negotiations were being conducted, said
Billy Joe Camp, press secretary to Gov. George Wallace.
After being captured, the warden was seen at a distance and appeared
bruised but able to walk, said officials at the prison, located about 25 miles
east of Birmingham.
Court to rule on affirmative action
WASHINGTON-The Supreme Court agreed yesterday to decide whether
public employers acting under union contracts may protect black workersby
first laying off whites with more seniority. .
The court's decision in a case from Jackson, Mich., could tell how far
public employers' "affirmative action" plans may go before running afoul of
the Constitution's equal-protection guarantees.
The justices also said they will decide in a case from Renton, Wash., what
authority communities have to restrict the location of adult movie
theaters-and whether cities, counties, and villages nationwde may use
zoning laws to restrict the locations of new adult theaters.
And the court said it will consider reviving key provisions of a Pen-.
nsylvania abortion control law, struck down by a federal appeals court as
unduly interfering with women's right to end their pregnancies.
The abortion case does not appear to present any sweeping issues. Pen-
nsylvania's appeal did not challenge the court's landmark 1973 ruling that
legalized abortion, but instead focused on the validity of certain procedures
and notification required by the state law.
Drs. must treat handicapped
infants unless death inevitable
WASHINGTON-The Reagan administration ordered doctors and
hospitals yesterday to provide medically necessary treatment for severely
handicapped "Baby Doe" infants except in cases where death appears
The Department of Health and Human Services released a final regulation
covering the so-called "Baby Doe" cases, in which infants with severe or
multiple handicaps might be denied necessary medical treatment and
allowed to die.
The regulations, which drew more than 116,000 comments from the public
and special interest groups, specify only three cases in which doctors are.
justified in withholding medical treatment:
,When the infant is chronically and irreversibly comatose.
,When treatment merely prolongs an inevitable death. .
,When treatment is so extreme and so likely to be futile that it bcomes
unhumane to administer it.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.-Discovery's crew got the go-ahead yesterday
for an attempt to restore power to a crippled $80 million satellite with a
homemade "fly swatter" made from a window shade, a vacuum hose, and a
piece of plastic.
Astronauts Jeffrey Hoffman and David Griggs put on space helmets for an
hour to breathe pure oxygen, beginning the process of purging nitrogen from
their system for a space walk today during which they will clamp the device
on to the shuttle arm.
Rescue day is tomorrow when Discovery will close the 40-mile distance
with the satellite and extend its arm-flyswatter combination to try to snag a
four-inch lever on the side of the huge revolving satellite.
The lever is an on-off switch for electrical power to the satellite that was
supposed to flip outward automatically when the astronauts deployed the
satellite Saturday. By pulling it, engineers hope to begin the electrical
sequence to restore the satellite to its proper working condition.
