Speaker condemns Piiwchet

A human rights lawyer
working in Chile told an
audience of 25 at the Friends
House Friday night that she had to
return to the United States a
month ago because of threats
against her life.
Jane Rasmussen said
anonymous callers had told her
the death of a friend run over by a
car was not an accident. She said
she also found a death threat
written in her address book.
, ACCORDING TO Rasmussen,
a neighbor of hers was beaten by.
secret police and shown a photo of
Rasmussen as part of an
investigation. Later, members of
the secret police and the foreign
ministry paid a call to
Rasmussen's house while she was
not there.
Referring to the incidents, she
said "It's nothing that
extraordinary. The Chilean
people have it much worse." But
she admitted that the Pinochet
regime-which has governed
.Chile since a coup in

1973-regime succeeded in
making her "afraid in an overall
spiritual sense."
Rasmussen focused her talk on
the political and human rights
situation in Chile and raised her
own case in the question and
answer period. An assasination
attempt two weeks ago against
General Augusto Pinochet, the
Chilean leader, focused world
attention on the country and led to
a crackdown against dissidents.
ONE WOMAN in the audience
who identified herself as Chilean
criticized Rasmussen for
presenting the situation in Chile
as polarized and suggested that
centrist groups do have support in
Chile. "We have to recognize that
the Christian Democrats are part
of the opposition to Pinochet," the
woman said.
Rasmussen responded by
saying that "Pinochet's
intransigence. . . is destroying
the program of the Christian
Democrats." Both Rasmussen
and her questioner agreed that
the United States is pressuring the

Christian Democrats to stay away
from the coalition of the Socialist
Party, Communist Party, and the
MIR, a revolutionary group.
According to Rasmussen, "what
the United States is afraid of is the
Left. . . . If there were fair, free
elections, there's a good chance it
would win.. . as it did in 1970."
Rasmussen predicted that the
United States government would
promote a "Duarte-style
solution"-like El
Salvador-with a right-wing
Christian Democrat to replace
Pinochet in the coming six
She says she became absorbed
in Chilean politics after her
husband, a native of Chile, was
detained by the police and later
showed her evidence of torture all
over his body. She later worked on
a successful campaign to release
her husband the second time he
was detained by secret police.
Currently, Rasmussen is
working to establish a group
called ChiletAid that includes
actors from the movie "Missing."

The new student football ticket
sale policy has crippled the
scalping business, scalpers in
front of the Union said Friday.
Scalping "has been tough so
far," said Toby Redd, a seventh-
year scalper. "This year is the
hardest year."
UNDER Under the new policy,
students who fail to produce their
entire book of season tickets
along with a seating pass will be
denied access to the stadium.
Consequently students and
scalpers must sell student tickets
in packages of six, or sell
individual non-student tickets.
The policy was not specifically
designed to reduce scalping,
although it puts scalpers at an
obvious disadvantage. Many
non-students who previously
purchased tickets from scalpers
had demanded to sit in the seat
printed on their ticket. Since
students are accustomed to sitting
wherever they wish, however,
conflicts were frequent. The new
system cuts down the number of
non-students sitting in the
student section.
Assistant Ticket Sales
Manager Steve Lambright said
"with scalping, you're getting
people (non-students) in sections
where they don't belong. We want
to protect the students that want to
see the game."
ACCORDING to Redd, student
tickets could be purchased last
year for $5 and sold for $20. This
year, packages of student tickets
cost $48, and Redd sells them for
$100. He said he buys non-student
tickets for $15 to $20 and sells
them for $30 to $35.
The University sells season
tickets for $48 to students, $96 for
non-students, and $16 each for the
general public.
"The new system stinks," said
veteran scalper William Bell,
adding that scalpers, students,
and families are "losing"
because of it. Students are losing,
Bell said, because scalped tickets
are too expensive, and families
are losing because they, often
"depend on scalpers" to get tickets.
Police investigate fire
Ann Arbor fire officials are
investigating an apparent arson
that damaged two bulletin boards
in the main lobby of West Quad
early Friday morning, according
to Batallion Chief Charles Torrey
of the Ann Arbor Fire
Torrey said the building was
evacuated after a fire alarm
sounded at 3:09 a.m. A student
extinguished the flames before
fire officials arrived.

for games.
THE "NEW system is not
kosher" because the people who
depend on scalpers, such as
alumni and families, "don't get
tickets, and can't go to games.
Alumni and supporters lose," Bell
But Lambright disagreed,

Civilians transport nuclear cargo

Navy uses at least two cargo ships
sailed by civilian crews transport
nuclear missiles across the
Atlantic, according to public
documents and sources.
The ships, assigned to the
Military Sealift Command, have
been given the job of ferrying
ballistic missiles of the type
deployed on submarines to and
from various sub
bases-primarily Charleston,
S.C., King's Bay, Ga., and Holy
Loch, Scotland.
Defense analysts who
specialize in the study of nuclear
weapons say such movements are
not unusual because of the United
States' emphasis on frequent
inspections to ensure safety and
The role, of the Military Sealift
Command in such transport
work, however, is largely
unknown and belies the common
perception that nuclear weapons
assigned to the Navy are handled
only by active-duty personnel.
And unlike the cargo ships or
ammunition ships that are
accompanied by Navy battle
groups, MSC ships frequently sail
the oceans without escort by

armed warships.
"Most people don't realize how
often we move nuclear weapons,"
says William Arkin, an analyst
with the Institute for Policy
Studies, a liberal Washington
think tank. "It's a daily event
because of maintenance
requirements, safety checks,
upgrades and replacements with
new weaponry."
Missiles such as the Trident
deployed on Ohio-class
submarines and Posiedon on
older subs are too large to make
aerial transport feasible, added

Navy officials who requested
Navy literature states the cargo
ships always carry a small detail
of seven to 10 active-duty sailors
responsible for communications
and security. Navy sources say
the vessels also rely on the
anonymity that accompanies
their outward qppearance as
standard cargo ships and the
Navy's policy of never
confirming nor denying the
presence of nuclear weapons.
The vessels are carefully
tracked during their voyages and
are in constant communication
with Navy facilities.

adamantly opposes the statement,
saying, "I would have gone along
with the majority if they had not
had the clause about 'consenting
adults.' That clause is a violation
of an individual's right to
promote his or her own happiness.
I think that what that statement
says is that a TA and a professor
falling in love, getting married,
and living happily ever after is
not an alternative. I don't agree
with that."
Both Moerman and Easley,
however, contend that what may
seem like a consenting
relationship may actually be
coercive or exploitative.
