Do you feel that the media exploited
the deaths in the Challenger ex-

Randy Boehm, Chemistry
Grad. Student: No. In this
situation it was the entire
nation that was mourning. In
this particular case, I'd say
they didn't go too far.

Elizabeth Armstrong, LSA
Soph.: Yes. The American
media tends to exaggerate
and exploit when any event
like this takes place.

J illian Teitelbaum, LSA
Fr.: No. The families
thanked everyone who sent
support. All those people
across the world who sent
flowers, their greetings and
condolences knew about it
through the media.

Alan Townsend, Grad
Library Staff: No. What the
media was doing was trying
to unify the country. They
were exploiting it in the sen-
se of trying to bring the
country together.

Dana Fair, LSA Sr.: Yes. I
saw the shuttle blow-up 15
times in 15 minutes. Once
would have been more than

Tracy Edwards, LSA Jr.:
Yes. In a way it's been sen-
sationalized. They were ac-
ting as if it were something
that was a good subject for a

Brent Adler, Inteflex 4th
year: No. They [the
astronauts] were doing a
mitzvah and we are par-
taking in the mourning by
the coverage. We should all
be allowed to mourn the

Jennifer Liu, LSA Sr.:
Yes. There is a point at
which discussion should be
ended. What can you say but
that they died and it was a
national tragedy?

Harold Cuse, Retired
Prof.: Of course they did.
You know the media. The
media has to see the oppor-
tunity to probe just as in-
timately as they would be
allowed to do.

Tom Noyes, LSA Soph.:
No. Everybody wanted to
know. Like at the funeral
service, the cameras were
right in their faces again, but
it's something that
everybody holds in common
- a death in the family.

Mine explodes in S. Africa
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - A land mine exploded near the
Zimbabwe border yesterday, injuring one person, as the government
moved to quell speculation that black nationalist leader Nelson Man-
dela's release from prison was imminent.
The land mine explosion, which ruptured the eardrum of a white
motorist, occurred near the northern border town of Messina, defense of-
ficials in Pretoria said.
They did not assign blame for the blast.
Sources close to the Mandela family said Winnie Mandela had no
definite information on prospects for the release of her husband, who has
been in jail since 1962 and is serving a life sentence for sabotage and
"His release is not imminent," Information Minister Louis Nel said.
Aquino warns Reagan not to
support Marcos' proposition
MANILA, Philippines - Corazon Aquino warned President Reagan.
yesterday against supporting the National Assembly's expected
proclamation of President Ferdinand Marcos as winner of last Friday's
presidential election.
The assembly, dominated by Marcos' New Society Movement party, is
to begin official tabulaton of votes this Friday, using what the opposition
has said are fraudulent local vote tallies.
"I would wonder at the motives of a friend of democracy who chose to
conspire with Marcos to cheat the Filipino people of their liberation,"
said Aquino, who claimed anew that she has already won the presidency.
Marcos has declared himself the "probable winner."
Reagan asserted at a news conference Tuesday night that the elections
were marred by fraud on both sides, but his remark was disputed by
several U.S. election observers who said they had seen no evidence of
fraud by Aquino's supporters.
Aquino took Reagan to task for his statement that the United States
would remain neutral and support whatever government is declared the
winner - a remark widely interpreted in the Philippines as support for
Dissident's family to emigrate
WASHINGTON - The Soviet Union has "indicated" that the mother of
Soviet dissident Anatoly Shcharansky and other family members will be
allowed to emigrate to Israel, the State Department said yesterday.
Reporters had asked at the department's daily press briefing whether
the administration had assurances from the Soviets that Shcharansky's
relatives would be allowed to leave.
It issued a one-sentence statement that said: "The Soviets have in-
dicated they will allow his mother and other family members to
There was no elaboration.
Shcharansky was released Tuesday in an East-West swap of prisoners
after serving eight years on charges of treason, espionage and anti-
Soviet agitation.
Police flatten student shanties
during anti-apartheid protests
A shanty that stood as a symbol of protest against apartheid has been
torn down at Dartmouth College and about 20 students arrested, capping
a long and bitter dispute about investments in companies doing business
in South Africa.
Three cardboard, wood and plastic huts that had been erected by Stan-
ford University students in California were flattened during the weekend
and campus police were investigating whether the vandalism was
politically motivated.
Shanties have also been built in WesleyanUniversity in Middletown,
Conn., and at Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass.
Students at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Wash., on Tuesday
protested a special committee's refusal to recommend that the 1,156-
student college divest all its holdings with South African connections.
About 75 people, mostly students, attended a teach-in as part of a day-
long action urging trustees to sell the stocks. Whitman Students for Social
Change had called for a boycott of classes.
According to college officials, Whitman owns stock in 16 companies
that do business in South Africa. The stocks, with a market value of about
$9 million, generate an estimated $375,000 in annual income, college of-
ficials said.
The shanty torn down at Dartmouth, in Hanover, N.H., was among
several put up in November to protest the college's $63 million in invest-
ments in companies doing business in South Africa.
U.K., France sign tunnel pact
CANTERBURY, England - Britain and France signed a "milestone"
treaty yesterday for construction of a multi-billion dollar rail tunnel un-
der the English Channel linking the two countries by 1993.

A British Foreign Office statement said, "The treaty's purpose is to
demonstrate the governments' commitment to the project," and to begin
addressing some of the practical details such as safety protection.
Three weeks ago in Lille in northern France, Thatcher and Mitterand
announced a twin-bore railway tunnel scheme as their choice for the fixed
link across the channel, which is 21 miles wide at its narrowest point. The
project has been budgeted at $3.3 billion in 1985 dollars, but the actual cost
is expected to double because of inflation.
Other proposals had included a six-lane suspension bridge and a road

A2 markets

with wire reports
Several local markets have pulled
Tylenol capsules from their shelves in
response to the cyanide poisoning of a
New York woman last week. The
cyanide was found in the woman's
bottle of Tylenol capsules.
All Tylenol capsules have been
removed from the shelves of the Nor-
th Campus Food Mart, said owner
Barbara Lugar.
"I HAVE decided not to reorder any
Tylenol products until the scare is
over," Lugar added.

Village Corner pulled Tylenol
capsules off the shelves, but will con-
tinue to sell the tablets, said manager
Fred Critch.
Last week's poisoning is the second
involving the capsules since 1982,
when seven people died in Chicago
after taking Tylenol capsules laced
with cyanide.
TESTS revealed that the New York
capsules contained cyanide which "is
not of the same type as the Chicago
cyanide," said Food and Drug Ad-
ministration spokesman Bill Grigg.
The test strengthens the theory that

the poisoning was an isolated in-
cident, Grigg said.
Nonetheless, the Department of
Public Health issued a warning ad-
vising Michigan residents not to take
any Tylenol capsules until the state
issues a formal opinion on the safety
of the tablets.
"For now, people should not buy or
consume any form of Tylenol capsules
until we're sure it's not a problem in
Michigan," said David Wade, a
toxicologist at the State Public Health


Trial postponed for 10 CIA protesters

Today's scheduled trial for 10
demonstrators, mostly students, who
were arrested last October during
CIA protests on campus, has been

postponed until next Thursday.
The defendants requested the delay
because they and their attorneys
needed more preparation time, said
Mara Silverman, an RC senior who is
among the 10 to be tried.
The 10 are charged with hindering
and opposing a police officer, a city
code violaton. If found guilty, defen-

dants could face up to a $100 fine
and/or 90 days in jail.
The demonstrators were arrested
after they were ordered to leave the
Student Activities Building, where the
CIA was interviewing students, by the
director of the Office of Career Plan-
ning and Placement. The 10
protesters then went outside, where
they were arrested for blocking a

police van.
The demonstrators said the actions
infringed upon their right to protest
and to free speech.
The 10 staged the "symbolic
protest" outside the SAB to oppose
these actions, according to Marion
Milbauer, an LSA senior and defen-
dant in the case.

Local Filipinos question election result

(Continued from Page 1)
junior Percy Herrero, who moved to
the U.S. from the Philippines 10 years
George Burgos, Ann Arbor
representative for Sambayanan, a
Detroit-based Filipino group, said
that the United States would prefer
that Marcos not declare martial law.
He said that the U.S. wants a
democracy established where the
elites would compete for ruling
HERRERO said he would like to see

the Reagan administration pressure
marcos to bring about overall
economic reforms and job oppor-
tunities for the poor.
According to Herrero, the Philip-
pine economic climate has declined
since Marcos took office in 1965.
"Before Marcos was elected, it was
three (Philippine) pesos to the dollar.
When martial law was declared, it
was about six pesos to the dollar.
Now, it's about 20 pesos to the dollar,"
he said.
Burgos said that the U.S. ultimately

supports Marcos in this election
because he is the most supportive of
keeping two U.S. military bases on the
island. Aquino's support of the bases
has fluctuated.
Although Burgos said that Filipinos
have warm sentiment for Americans,
there is simultaneously a growing
nationalist sentiment which opposes
U.S. intervention into internal
Philippine affairs.
