By ERIC MATTSON
The chairwoman of Wayne State
University's newspaper plublications
board said last night she will appoint
News Editor Maureen Aitken to take
over as editor of The South End,
following the controversial firing of
the Editor Patricia Maceroni last
Maceroni was forced to step down
last Thursday when she refused to
allow United States military adver-
tisements in the paper. The nine-
member board voted 7-1 with one ab-

Maceroni's stance are waiting for
Maceroni's attorney, John Minock, to
file for a temporary restraining order
to reinstate Maceroni in her $150-a-
week position. Minock said last night
he will file for the order tomorrow or
Thursday, when he files a lawsuit in
federal court charging that
Maceroni's First Amendment rights
have been violated.
Aitken said she would accept the of-
fer to serve as interim editor,
although she said she wouldn't be sur-
prised if Maceroni is granted an in-
junction. "If that happens, I would
stay right where I am, which is fine
with me," she said. "What I'm con-

Greenlee said that some staff mem-

paper and starting a new weekly
publication, but most of the staff has
adopted a wait-and-see approach. "I

COMPILED FROM ASSOCIATED PRESS AND
UNITED PRESS INTERNATIONAL REPORTS
Palestiians hijack cruise ship
PORT SAID, Egypt - Palestinian hijackers took over an Italian cruise
liner with more than 400 people aboard yesterday, demanded the release
of 50 prisoners from Israel and threatened to blow up the ship if attacked,
port officials reported.
State-run Italian television said 28 Americans were aboard the Achille
Lauro, which was commandeered about 30 miles out of Port Said.
Italian news agencies said Defense Minister Giovanni Spadolini placed
the nation's armed forces on alert.
Port Said officials said the ship had been bound from the Egyptian
coastal city of Alexandria to Port Said, entrance to the Suez Canal, and
headed out into the Mediterranean Sea after the hijacking. Its destination
The threat to blow up the vessel came from the hijackers' leader, iden-
tified as Omar, they said.
Shuttle lands secretly
EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. - The shuttle Atlantis landed
safely on a California desert yesterday, still surrounded by secrecy as
spectators were barred from watching the end of an inaugural four-day
mission that launched two military satellites.
Communications with the five-man Atlantis crew remained blacked out
as mission commander Air Force Col. Karol Bobko guided the stubby-
winged spaceplane to a perfect 1 p.m. EDT landing on a dry lakebed run-
way at Edwards Air Force Base.
A spokesman in Mission Control reported, "The orbiter is in very good
shape," but no other details were released immediately.
Sources said the astronauts successfully deployed two $100 million
military communications satellites that are designed to resist nuclear
radiation. The crew also tested systems aboard the new space shuttle
Atlantis and a spokesman reported the craft was "solid throughout the
Atlantis was launched last Thursday under a shroud of secrecy that
concealed even the launch time until just nine minutes before the rockets
ignited. Following Pentagon policy for a dedicated military flight, the
National Aeronautics and Space Administration withheld from reporters
all of the air-to-ground communications and mission briefings that nor-
mally are released.
London rioters kill policeman
LONDON - Police threatened yesterday to use tear gas and plastic
bullets against street rioters after some of the worst urban violence in
Britain since 1981. One policeman was stabbed to death and 232 fellow of-
ficers were injured.
Twenty civilians also were hurt when more than 500 youths, some ar-
med with shotguns, machetes, and staves, battled police Sunday night
and early yesterday in the racially mixed north London district of Tot-
Police Commissioner Sir Kenneth Newman told a news conference that
the riot - the fourth major outbreak of urban violence in Britain in a
month - was the first in mainland Britain in modern times in which guns
were used and a police official was killed.
Newman said he sent tactical squad officers armed with plastic bullets
and tear gas to the scene at the height of the violence but the riot was con-
tained without using them.
The rioters, blacks and whites, sppeared to be aiming at police, whom
they blamed for the death of Cynthia Jarrett, a 49-year-old black woman
who collapsed and dies of an apparent heart attack during a police search
of her home on Saturday night.
Caller demands Soviet, U.S
cooperation in Lebanon
BEIRUT, Lebanon - A caller claiming to represent the captors of
three Soviet Embassy employees said yesterday they will be held until
the United States and Soviet Union join forces to end Lebanon's 10-year-
old civil war.
He also threatened abductions of more Soviet and American citizens
as a means of putting pressure on the superpowers. The authenticity of
the call could not be determined.
An anonymous caller who said he represented a fundamentalist Sunni
Moslem group named the Islamic Liberation Organization claimed
responsibility for the kidnap of four Soviet Embassy staff members a week
aGO. One of them was killed and his body -left in a vacant lot.
The body of cultural attache Arkady Katkov, 32, was found Wednesday,
and the Syrians declared a cease-fire in Tripoli on Thursday, ending 19
days of fighting in which more than 500 people had been killed.
Two other diplomats and the embassy physician still are held.
Supreme Court to rule on
affirmative action disputes
WASHINGTON - With the future of racial preferences in the
American workplace at stake, the Supreme Court began its 1985-86 term
yesterday by agreeing to decide a pair of affirmative action disputes.
The court set the stage for what could be its most important decision on
racial equality of the 1980s by agreeing to study cases involving
firefighters in Cleveland and sheet metal workers in New York and New
The two cases, to be decided by July, join another affirmative action
dispute already on the court's docket - a case from Jackson, Mich., over
collectively bargained plans aimed at protecting minority workers.
At issue in the Cleveland case is what employers can do in seeking to in-
tegrate their workforce by giving minority members special preferences.
