"What do you think about a Women of Michigan calendar?
Sue Neal, LSA junior: I don't
think it's a bad idea as long
as the pictures aren't too
revealing. I don't know how
it would be compared to the
Men of Michigan calendar,
but if you have a Men of
Michigan calendar then why
not a Women of Michigan
Harry Kokkinakis, Business Dave Micoff, Business
school senior: I think it's school senior: After reading
great! When can I buy one? the article in the Daily, it
split my views on the calen-
dar, but I'm still in favor of
it. I think it could only
reflect positively on the
women of Michigan.
Naomi Hosoya, LSA junior:
I think it's all right since
there is a Men of Michigan
calendar, so why not a
Women of Michigan calen-
dar? As long as it has taste
and the women aren't in
bathing suits or anything
Cherie Siegel, LSA senior: I
don't find anything wrong
with it. My first reaction was
no, they shouldn't have it.
But I never found the Men of
Michigan calendar offen-
sive, so why should a Women
of Michigan be offensive?
Some women will be against
it just because they support
the feminist movement, but
I think that's silly.
Michael Mixon, engineering
junior: I think it would have
positive effects right now
because the physical ap-
pearance of Michigan
women isn't too good. As
long as it is kept tasteful and
not too tacky then it can't be
any worse than the Sports
Illustrated swimsuit issue.
Ann Marie Poleck, LSA
sophomore: I think it's a
good idea. My boyfriend
asked me to do it and I have
applied. It seemed like they
judged me on my looks and
they were very impersonal.
It's going to be good for
everyone who does it and
also for the school because
it's supposed to be done well.
Kammi Goldberg, LSA
freshman: It wouldn't
bother me. As long as people
who look at it are familiar
with Michigan women, then
there should be no misun-
derstanding as to whether or
not the women are dumb and
beautiful. If you know
Michigan, then you know
that they aren't dumb.

UNITED PRESS INTERNATIONAL REPORTS
Philippines official investigates
Marcos fortune in Wash. D.C.
MANILA, Philippines - Top generals pledged loyalty yesterday to new
President Corazon Aquino, and a Cabinet official left for Washington in
an attempt to recover millions of dollars allegedly hidden by ousted
President Ferdinand Marcos.
Jovito Salonga, head of the Commission on Good Government, said
before leaving for the United States that he would consider investigating
a claim that Marcos had schemed to influence Washington with huge
Salonga said he had received a letter, purportedly from a group of
Filpino bankers, saying Marcos planned to donate $57 million to
President Reagan's 1980 and 1984 campaigns and $10 million to other U.S.
The letter provided no documentation to support the claim and there
was no independent verification. It also did not say that any money ac-
tually was paid or that any U.S. official agreed to accept it.
Salonga said he received the letter Saturday from former banker An-
tonio Gatmaitan, who said it was written by 14 Filipino bankers whom he
refused to identify.
Reagan reverses Chile policy
GENEVA - The Reagan administration decided to reverse its policy
on Chile and call publicly for a halt to persistent human rights violations
there because the use of "quiet diplomacy" failed, a U.S. official said
The United States presented a draft resolution last week at a meeting of
the U.N. Human Rights Commission in Geneva accusing the government
and judicial authorities in Chile of failure to prevent "serious" human
It called on the military government of Gen. Augusto Pinochet to "im-
mediately put an end to all forms of psychological and physical torture by
the security and police forces."
In Santiago, Chile, Pinochet met with his Cabinet yesterday to discuss
the resolution. No statement was released.
Richard Schifter, U.S. delegate to the commission in Geneva, said Chile
had not responded to the Reagan administration's use of "quiet
diplomacy" to try to bring about change.
S. African whites join angry
response to police violence
JOHANNESBURG - Prominent whites joined anti-apartheid groups
yesterday in angry response to a report that police fired into a black
crowd without provocation the day before, and to banning order against
two black leaders.
"A culture of (black) resistance is being born before our eyes," said
Frederick van Zyl Slabbert, a white politician. "'I say there cannot be
any peaceful change in South Africa. We are caught up in violence."
Police said the crowd of 2,000 people outside a courtroom in Kabokweni
township Tuesday refused to disperse and got out of control. A teen-age
boy was killed and 80 people were wounded.
Another boy was killed by police gunfire in the township later Tuesday.
Yesterday, a black man was speared to death in the Kangwane
homeland adjacent to the township, and three blacks were injured by
stone-throwers outside Kabokweni.
Spain votes to stay in NATO
MADRID - The Socialist government claimed yesterday it had won "a
clear-cut victory" for continued Spanish membership in NATO in a
nationwide referendum that brought out more than two-thirds of the
About 139,000 police and security officers were deployed outside voting
booths to prevent disruptions of the referendum but no major incidents
were reported. Security was also tightened outside U.S. military bases, a
source of contention during the campaign that led up to the vote on NATO
The Socialist government of Prime Minister Felipe Gonzalez sought
endorsement of continued membership in the North Atlantic Treaty
The government had asked Spaniards to support remaining in NATO's
political structure in exchange for a reduction in the 12,600 American
troops stationed in Spain and a ban on nuclear weapons.
Police uncover sex scheme
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The seizure of more than 100 photographs of
women from an insuance agent's luxury condominium has widened an
investigation into a suspected prostitution ring in which two Brown
University students were arrested, police said yesterday.
Investigators uncovered the sex scheme after raiding the home of
Stanley Henshaw who lives near the Ivy League campus, and seizing the
photographs of women in "various stages of undress," Police Chief An-
thony Mancuso said.
Forty-six women are included in the pictures, Mancuso said. Hensaw
has not been arrested in the case, Mancuso said, and refused to say
whether he was the target of the probe.
"We don't know where the investigation is going to lead us. We're just
beginning. There could be more to come," Mancuso told a news conferen-
Brown University officials requested the police investigation which led
to the arrest Friday of two students, Dana Smith of Avon, Conn., and
Rebecca Kidd of Orange, Conn., both 21.

Al Smudz, engineering
graduate student: As
women today fight for
equality and against ex-
ploitation, I worry that
something like a Women of
Michigan calendar would be
detrimental to the fight.
Gregg Backer, LSA fresh-
man: I think depending on
how it's done, it could be ad-
vantageous to how people
perceive the women of
Michigan. The proposed
calendar is only looking at
the women's beauty and that.
is all it seems to be concer-
ned about. The people in
charge should take the time
to interview the women to
find out what they are really
like underneath the surface.

end up dead and it's hard to prove that
death is moral," Darouwshe said.
According to Darouwshe, both
Arabs and Israelis must stop dwelling
on the past. "History is important to
shape our own identity," he said.
"But if we keep digging into the past,
we're not going to get anywhere.
History teaches us to shape the future
and the future is life or death for both
DAROUWSHE urged his audience to
support neither side of the conflict
wholeheartedly. "The question is not
rights. The Jews are people and the
Palestinians are people," and both
claim to have rights over the land.
"People have an affinity to their
land and it's ridiculous to try and prove
legitimate rights," he said.
"Nationality is a state of mind."
The Palestinians are currently at a
great disadvantage, he said. They live
with fewer educational opportunities
and outdated technology.
ISRAELIS and Arabs must talk to
solve their problems, Darouwshe
said. Although they don't need to work
out specific solutions immediatley,
they must open the lines of com-
Darouwshe proposed that the
Israelies talk with the legimitate
leaders of the Palestinian community.
Currently, Palestinian leaders are
appointed by the Israelis rather than
elected by the Palestinians, he said.
"Leaders cannot be appointed by out-
siders, they grow up from the
people," he said.
