'Blue' jean jackets:
a far from faded fad

nearly every student owns one:
the ubiquitous, all-weather,

people who don't own one are
either real dweebs or your
only ones singing denim's
praises. No one loves a fad
more than a merchant.
Duncan Cole from Sam's Store
Inc. on East Liberty says "We
sell hundreds in a fall".
Fashionable as they may be,
there are jean jackets that are
not cool. Jackets to avoid at all
costs are usually dark blue

stonewashing) with stitches

Staggar Lee, the namesake of
a Grateful Dead song, on the

painting depicts a green suit,
yellow gloves, a top hat, eyes
and a cheshire-cat smile, but a

In his words it is "an invisible

This is an '80s jean jacket", he
said enthusiastically. "People

are just ordinary people" he
said, shaking his head sadly.
The so-called "standard

$35.95 at Sam's Store Inc. But

wearers need not retire their
true blue, white, black, or grey
in the chilly season ahead.

"I think that mandatory
testing is basically a hysterical
overreaction to a problem which
among academics is very
small," according to history Prof.
Terrence McDonald.
McDonald said that testing
policies are an infringement of
privacy through self
incrimination that "has a
tendency to threaten cherished
beliefs that have been held
throughout American history."
McDonald opposes such
policies in both public and private,
institutions. "I would refuse to
submit to such a test," he said. "I
would support legal or other action
to block its administration to
anyone on the faculty."

Bob Piefer, assistant director
at the Department of Public Safety,
said he would have no problem
submitting to a mandatory drug
"I don't mind being tested for
drugs," he said. "I don't think we
have a drug problem here at the
Department of Public Safety."
Under the current policey,
cases are handled individually
by department's supervisors. One
concern involving policy
revisions is the liability of the
University owing to the negligent
actions of an employee. James
Thiry, personnel director for the
University, has said that, in any
policy'revisions, it is necessary to
balance employee responsibilities
and rights.

Many people don't realize that

that," she said.

result of the sale. "I can't tell you
because I don't know, it's all so

When asked why students
might come to Ulrich's instead of

students may chose to shop at
Ulrich's instead of the Unviersity
Cellar because of its convenient
location, competitive prices, and
reputation among several
generations of students.
"We're very competitive,"
Rosser said. "And we try and
make our store as hassle-free as
we can for the students."

(AP) -- Nicaragua is issuing
weapons to foreign civilian
volunteers, thereby converting
them into potential targets for
Contra rebels, the military
commander of the largest rebel
force says.
"They are part of the enemy.
We have warned them not to go
into the war zones or carry
weapons. We cannot be
responsible," said Enrique
Bermudez, one of seven directors
of the Nicaraguan Democratic
Force rebel group.
'THESE PEOPLE are at risk of
being killed by our forces,
especially if they are wearing
uniforms, carrying weapons and
riding in military vehicles," he
said in a weekend interview.
Bermudez, leader of the U.S.-
backed Contra group known as
FDN from its Spanish-language
initials, was referring to
thousands of volunteers, mainly
from Europe and the United
States, who work in Nicaragua
building houses, health clinics
and schools.
HE BUTRESSED his charges
by showing documents including
gun permits he said were taken

from three foreigners killed in a

Nicaragua's leftist
Sandinistat government and
international groups sponsoring
the foreigners' visits have said
repeatedly that the civilian
volunteers are unarmed. The
goverhment has withdrawn some
volunteers from combat zones, but
has avoided publicizing the issue.
THE PROBLEM has been
because the Sandinistats say they
are poor internationalists and
innocents , buty this shows they
are active partcipants," Bermudez
said, referring to the documents.
