PI Lams may form 'U' chapter

Pi Lambda Phi, the nation's first
fraternity to be founded on a non-
sectarian basis, may soon have a
chapter at the University.
Currently, 16 undergraduates are
members of a Pi Lambda Phi colony.
"We are hoping to be recognized as a
chapter by the spring of 1986," said
Esteban Cabello, treasurer of the Pi
Lambda Phi colony.
pI LAMBDA PHI was established
in 1895 at Yale University to protest
the discriminatory practices of other
fraternities, colony officers said.

"The goals of Pi Lambda Phi will be
to maintain diversity," said Edgar
Vasquez, president of the colony. "We
don't want everyone to dress the same
or act the same."
The 16 students in the colony are
pledges of the national fraternity. On-
ce the colony is recognized as a chap-
ter by the national fraternity, the
pledges become brothers.
"WE TURNED in a proposal to the
University's Interfraternity Council
on Oct. 15 so that we could be
recognized by the Council," said
Edgar Cano, vice president of the

Colony officers are not sure if the
Council will recognize the Pi Lambda
Phi colony. "There are already too
many fraternities, and there has been
a bias against Pi Lambda Phi in the
past since it's the firstbnon-sectarian
fraternity," Cano said.
There are other fraternities on
campus which have been recognized
by a national fraternity, but not by the
Interfraternity Council, colony of-
ficers said.
"THERE WAS a U-M chapter of Pi
Lambda Phi from 1913 to 1968," said
colony secretary Rich Dreist.

The colony has visited the Michigan
State chapter of Pi Lambda Phi, and
plans to visit the chapter at Siena
Heights College in Adrian.
"Our first big party will be the
homecoming party to meet U-M
alumni of Pi Lambda Phi," Cano said.
"This is a unique experience
because we're writing our own con-
stitution and not following anyone
else's standards," Cabello said.

School Board approves seven closings

The Ann Arbor school board ap-
proved a plan early yesterday mor-
ning that will close seven elementary
schools, forcing many children of
University student living on North
Campus to transfer school beginning

next year.
Board members said the 7-2
decision will result in better racial
distribution through the district and
will also facilitate improvements
within the schools remaining open.
ACCORDING to parents, many

North Campus children - a high
proportion of which do not speak
English - attend Logan School,
where they receive quality instruction
in English.
Come September, those students
will be reassigned to Northside
School, which, parents complain, does
not have a comparable English-as-a-
second-language program, nor the
samenquality of overall instruction as
But school board trustee Robert
Wallin said the changes should
greatly improve the quality of in-

struction at Northside. One important
factor that he points out, is that this
past year Northside has hired four
new teachers and a new principal.
ADDS SCHOOL board president
Eunice Royster: "They're (the North
Campus parents) talking about Nor-
thside as they know it now. In fact, the
quality of education will be better
than what they are currently ex-
She said that parents and faculty
together will be deciding the
curriculum, based on the special
needs of the students.

THE COUNCIL said the proposed
code would deny students' right to a
proper jury trial. Under the ad-
ministration's proposal, students
subject to expulsion or suspension for
more then one term would have the
right to a jury of their peers, but all
other accussed students would be
judged by a hearing officer.
Yesterday's meeting was largely an
organizational meeting to review the
council's work up to this point.
After 11 months of deliberation, the
council is now close to finishing its
recommendations on how to deal with

life threatening situations. The panel
has also agreed, in principle, on how
to handle most other crimes.
In the event of a life threatening
situation, the crime would be reported
to a central coordinator, who would
decide on what action to take. The
coordinator, according to the coun-
cil's discussions, would be able to ban
the accused from campus, but only
until the civil courts could take over.
THIS STRAYS from the ad-
ministration's stance that the Univer-
sity should be able to punish, in ad-
dition to, or instead of action taken by
the civil authorities.

Prime Minister Draxi resigns
Prime Minister Bettion Draxi resigned with his government and in an
address to Parliament expressed "bitterness" over U.S. protests against
his decision to let Palestine Liberation Organization official Mohammed
Abbas leave Italy.
Draxi allowed Abbas to fly to Yugoslavia despite U.S. assertions it had
proof he was the leader of the four Palestinians who seized the Italian
luxury liner Oct. 7 and killed Leon Klinghoffer, 69, of New York, during a
two-day voyage of terror in the eastern Mediterranean.
Earlier yesterday a PLO official who declined to reveal his name told
United Press International that Abbas was probably "already in Bagh-
dad for a PLO meeting in the Iraqi capital with PLO leader Yasser
Afafat" and other Palestinian officials.
When asked if the incident could harm relations between the United
States and Yugoslavia, which officials described as having been good for
years, foreign ministry spokesman Zeljko Jeglic said, "We are not of that
opinion (they would be harmed)."
Rea an says 'Star Wars'
won t violate ARM treaty
WASHINGTON-President Reagan, glossing over an apparent policy
conflict between two top advisors, said yesterday the objective of his "Star
Wars' missile-defense plan can be achieved without violating the 1972 An-
ti-Ballistic Missile Treaty.
"Everything we're doing is within the context of the treaty," Reagan
said while posing for picatures in the Oval Office with Israeli Prime
MInister Shimon Peres.
The declaration came amid apparent differences between national
security advisor Robert McFarlane and Secretary of State George Shultz
over what limits, if any, the United States will accept on its Strategic
Defense Initiative, popularly known as 'Star Wars'.
Jury convicts civilian spy
BALTIMORE-A former civilian Navy intelligence analyst who gave
three U.S. spy photographs to a British military journal was convicted by
a federal jury yesterday of espionage and theft of government property.
Samuel Loring Morison, 40, was convicted of two counts of espionage
and two counts of theft of government property, each count carrying a
possible 10-year term and $10,000 fine. Morison, who remains free on
$100,000 bond, left the courthouse wihtout comment.
U.S. District Judge Joseph Young set sentencing for Nov. 25.
Morison's defense attorneys, including Mark Lynch of the American
Civil Liberties Union, had argued that prosecution of Morison en-
dangered the First Amendment rights of both government officials and
the news media.
With Morison's case as a precedent, high-level officials could unjustly
control the flow of government information to the public, Lynch argued.
He said low-level government officials would be threatened with espionage
and theft prosecution if they leaked embarrassing information, so only in-
formation favorable to the U.S. government would be released.
San Antonio health department
bans sex for AIDS victims
SAN ANTONIO, Texas - The city health department has hand-delivered
letters to 14 AIDS victims warning that sexual activity will result in
felony charges against them, and the mayor says carriers of the disease
should "transcend their individual rights" in deference to society.
The letters dispatched this week also order the AIDS victims to avoid
exposing others to the disease through sharing needles or donating blood
or plasma, and to caution physicians and dentists with whom they come
into contact.
"I think most people are reasonable and that they wil follow the last
paragraph in the letter to accept this letter in the spirit in which it was in-
tended and help me in my effort to protect the public health," Dr.
Courand Rothe, director of the health department, said yesterday,
L.A. fires char 80,000 acres
LOS ANGELES - Cool ocean breezes and a damp fog helped firefighter
contain two more of the 19 wild fires that have charred more than 80,000
acres in Southern California. But they feared yesterday that flames
might invade a wildlife refuge.
The blazes were the first major brush fires in Southern California since
July, when a series of fires blackened more than 300,000 acres, destroyed
more than 65 homes and killed three people.
The largest of the fires that have burned since Monday, resulting in the
death of one man, creeped to within two miles of the Sespe Wildlife San-
ctuary in the Los Padres National Forest of Ventura County.
The protected area, a habitat for the endangered California condor,
was in the direct path of the 42,500-acre fire, a Ventura County fire
spokesman said.
GNP grows by 3.3 percent
WASHINGTON - The nation's gross national product grew at a
healthy annual rate of 3.3 percent during the third quarter, the gover-
nment reported yesterday and the administration said the figures were

evidence of "sustained, steady growth" in the economy.
Commerce Department economists said the GNP - the broad measure
of the nation's goods and services - benefitted from substantial boosts in
spending by consumers and government.
The GNP for the July-September quarter was significantly ahead of the
preliminary "flash" estimate of 2.8 percent growth issued last month by
government economists. Department economists said military spending
grew unexpectedly, accounting for most of the lower earlier estimate.
But a privte economist was more skeptical about the possibility of con-
tinued growth, saying he saw "very little prospect" for strong growth in
the next several months.
