"UNFORTUNATELY I have to give
you mournful news," Prime Minister
Bettino Craxi told a news conference
in Rome. "In the course of this
aggression, an American citizen was
killed. The captain of the ship told me
this a few moments ago, when I spoke

terrorists surrendered to represen-
tatives of the PLO, and the Italian
Foreign Ministry, citing a radio
message from the ship's master, said
the hijackers were taken to the Port
Said Naval Base.
ESMAT ABDEL-MEGUID, the
Egyptian foreign minister, indicated
the hijackers would be given safe
conduct out of the country. "The
hijackers, who number four, will
leave Egypt," he said. "The ship will
go to Port Said harbor. There were no

would go from Egypt.
The pirates demanded the release
of 50 Palestinians imprisoned in Israel
after they took over the liner Monday
night off Port Said, heavily armed
with guns and explosives. They
threatened at various times during
the two-day voyage to the Syrian
coast and back to kill the people
aboard and blow up the ship.
YESTERDAY in Washington,
Reagan's spokesman said the United
States "will do everything possible to
see that those responsible" for
hijacking the Italian cruise ship are
brought to justice, regardless of the
arrangements Egypt made to gain
release of the ship, its passengers,
"We believe those responsible
should be prosecuted to the maximum
extent possible," White House
spokesman Larry Speakes said shor-

announced the four Palestinian

yesterday to inspect the vessel to
determine whether one or more of the
U.S. citizens aboard had been killed.
SEEKING to divorce the ad-
ministration from a reported deal to
give the hijackers safe passage out of
Egypt, Speakes said, "The decision on
how to resolve the crisis was one
made by the Egyptian government."
The Israeli government announced
that it is pleased that the hijack ended
"without our involvement," a
military spokesman, said yesterday
The hijackers claimed to belong to
the Palestine Liberation Front, a fac-
tion of the PLO. The Palestine
Liberation Organization has denied
involvement in the piracy, but Israel
says it is skeptical.

Greeks may establish court
By STEPHEN GREGORY
A new judicial committee which
would discipline Greek system mem-
bers for commiting criminal acts and
oversee all fraternity social activities
could be formed tonight if In-
trafraternity Council members give it
Greek members who commit
criminal acts would not only be
Ipunished by local authorities but by
the review panel. So far, no range of
punishments has been decided.
The original idea was divised by
Anne Morgan, vice president of the
SHE FIRST develops the review
procedures for sororities because
sororities wanted to curb over-
participation in fraternity functions.
The idea of a review board was also
set up to keep fraternity men from
asking sorority women to participate
in activities women viewed as
degrading, such as kissing boothes,
BUT SHE said University pressure
also played a role in the establishment
of her guidelines.
"We were getting some pressure
from the University to either gpt con-
trol (of the Greek system) or
relinquish it," she said.
"GARP will have a two-fold pur-
pose - first, as a pro-activities group
which will provide quality event plan-
ning and second, a judiciary function
if the responsibilities of Greek mem-
bership are not upheld (by both
fraternities and sororities)."
IN ADDITION TO punishing Greek
members who break the law, the
panel will also handle disputes bet-
ween fraternities, sororities, and non-
Lutes cited a fraternity that
serenades an unappreciative sorority
at 3 a.m. as an example of failure to
uphold Greek responsibilities.
The GARP would also deal with
fraternities that violate rush

jucidial function in our constitution,"

After eleven months at work on an alternative code of
nonacademic conduct, the University Council will reach
a crossroads next Thursday when it meets for the first
time this fall.
The nine-member council must decide then whether to
reconsider the administration's code proposal students
protested last year, or to try to finish its own version of a
code by the end of the year.
MONDAY, IT was disclosed that University President
Harold Shapiro told students involved in the code issue
that he may bypass the council and submit the ad-
ministration's code proposal to the Board of Regents for
approval in January.
He said, however, that he would not go to the regents,
if the council finished its version by January or, as a sign
of "good faith," reconsidered the administration's
proposal of last November. The council never con-
sidered that code, opting to draft its own guidelines to
control behavior outside the classroom.
The November code draft is a series of "rules for the
University community." If put into effect, it would also
give the University the authority to punish students,
faculty and staff for crimes ranging from rape to civil
STUDENTS and faculty protested this code, claiming
that some parts of it were unconstitutional; some said
that the University should not have the right to punish
for non-academic offenses.
Key to the council's decision next week will be whether
it can finish its own code'in time. According to Eric
Schnaufer, the lone student returning from last year's
council, the group must still polish its recommendations
on emergency procedures.
Under their emergency procedures, a central coor-
dinator will have the authority to take such steps as ban-
ning a student from a classroom only if the student was a
threat to other people in the University.

Wayne State University student
council members failed yesterday in
their attempt to convince their
university president to speak out
against the recent firing of the student
newspaper's top editor before the
case goes,. to court.
Patricia Maceroni was dismissed
from her position by the WSU
publications board last Thursday for
refusing to print military adver-
tisements in the school paper, The
STUDENTS council members
believe Maceroni has the power to
decide that The South End will not ac-
cept military advertisements. But the
publications board last week voted 7
to 1 with one abstention to fire
Maceroni for insubordination, saying
that she did not have the authority to
refuse the ads.
WMU President David Adamany
met with student council leaders for
an hour-and-a-half yesterday to
discuss Maceroni's dismissal. The
meeting came after 100 students
demonstrated Tuesday in front of his
office in an attempt to have him
pressure the publications board to
Jay Grossman, president of the
student council, said he and his vice
president asked Adamany to consider
changing the publications board's
charter on the grounds that it is am-
biguous as to who has final authority
over the paper, the editor or the
ADAMANY would not comment on
the issue at yesterday's meeting,
however, because he said he did not
believe the University administration
should influence the publications
"I've taken no steps to intervene,"
Adamany said. "I don't want my
views to influence the editor or the
student publications board because
they're established by a charter
which is wholly independent of the
"I regard this as a freedom of the
press issue," he added.
Maceroni's attorney, John Minock,
will go to Detroit Circuit Court today
to ask for a temporary restraining or-
der and "immediate reinstatement'
of his client, charging that her First
Amendment rights have been
Said Maceroni of her chances of
being reinstated: "We'll have to see
how the injunction goes."

The college freshman said he considers himself just
another kid at home. "I have friends of all ages, but the
