Lawyer says
students liable
for dr'inking

A prosecuting attorney drove
home a sober warning to more than
100 people at the Pendleton Room
of the Union last night: The courts
are cracking down on alcohol-related
crimes,and college students are no
less susceptible to that movement
than anyone else.
Speaking on "Drinking and
Community Accountability," David
Westol, an assistant prosecuting
attorney for Kalamazoo County,
gave a humorous but serious lecture
on the dangers of student drinking
on college campuses today.
sponsorei by the Panhellenic
Association, the Interfraternity
Council, the Office of Student
Services, and the Housing Division
as part of National Alcohol
Awareness Week.
"The law tries to treat everybody
equally," he said. "Students on
campus aren't far away from court.
You can be tried like everybody
. else."
More important, Westol said,
students often fail to realize that if
they serve alcohol at a party, they
are responsible for their guests'
actions and well-being. "To have

an open party is legal suicide," he
TOO OFTEN, Westol said,
fraternities and sororities act as
bars, selling beer and liquor to
students at parties. The problem is
that these same Greek organizations
are just as responsible as any bar
owner would be for the safety of the
their guests.
"Any time money changes
hands, you are sticking your head in
the noose," said Westol, who is
also the national vice president for
Theta Chi Fraternity. Under civil
law, fraternities and sororities can
be held liable if one of their guests
kills someone while driving drunk.
Westol suggested that hosts
check identification, have guests
turn over their car keys, watch for
excessive drinking, and have closed
THE RECENT crackdown on
drunk driving should also prompt
students to be more responsible
when they drink, Westol said.
Drunk drivers are "nothing but
human hand grenades ready to go
off somewhere," he said.
Students can also get in legal
trouble for more minor offenses,
such as serving alcohol to minors,

having a fake ID, and drunk and
disorderly conduct. Gone are the
days when citizens of college towns
expected students to get drunk and
wreak havoc, said Westol.
"Times have changed," he said.
"People are no longer tolerant of
college antics."

Westol said that fraternities and
sororities should also make good
relationships with neighboring city
residents a priority.
"The Greeks and the neighbors
have to get together. Keep the
communication flowing with your
neighbors," he. said.

Conservatives seek prison alternatives

French hostages arrive home
PARIS -Two Frenchmen freed by Shiite Moslem kidnappers
after months of captivity in Lebanon came home yesterday and were
greeted by Premier Jacques Chirac, who thanked Syria for helping
arrange the release.
Camille Sontag and Marcel Coudari were released in west Beirut
Monday night and turned over to French envoys in Damascus, Syria,
less than 12 hours later.
When they arrived at Orly airport outside Paris, Chirac thanked
Syria, Saudia Arabia, and Algeria for helping arrange the release of the
Coudari, when asked if he had news of other French hostages,
replied: "No. But I can tell you that things will happen soon." Asked if
he was certain, Coudari said: "well, yes, more or less, more or less."
He told reporters, citing "a pretty official source," that French
hostage Michel Seurat apparently had died of natural causes. The pro-
Iranian Shiite Moslem group Islamic Jihad announced March 5 that he
had been killed.
Explosions hit South Africa
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa-Explosions rocked a courthouse
and a shopping arcade in the Natal mining town of Newcastle yesterday,
injuring at least six people, police said.
The South African Press Association reported 19 injured, quoting an
unidentified spokeswoman for the provincial hospital in Newcastle.
"Nobody died," said Newcastle Police Col. F.M. Venter. "According
to my knowledge there were three policemen and three women
He said one officer was seriously hurt.
Venter said the three policemen and at least one woman were hurt in
the explosion outside the magistrate's court in Newcastle. The other
two people apparently were injured at the earlier explosion at the
shopping arcade.
It was not immediately known if the explosions were caused by
SAPA quoted the hospital spokeswoman as saying all the injured at
the hospital were black, and that seven were in serious condition and
two were in critical condition.
Aquino praises Japan's help
TOKYO-Philippine President Corazon Aquino praised Japan
yesterday as an inspiration and partner ,in rebuilding her nation's
economy, which she said was left "broken at the bottom of the pile" by
the 20-year rule of Ferdinand Marcos.
Expressing optimism for her country, she said: "My presidency runs
until 1992 and in that time I have every expectation that I will oversee
the same concerted bust of directed national energy that did so much for
In the 19th century, when other Asian countries were colonies of
Western nations, and again after World War II, Japan "showed what an
Asian nation could do given the will and a wise leadership," Aquino
said at a state banquet.
At a reception with legislators earlier, she said: "We need outright
aide... but more importantly we need Japan's expression of faith in the
promise of Philippine progress."
Arms talks productive after
Iceland, says U.S. negotiator
GENEVA-The chief American negotiator said the round of nuclear
arms talks that ends today has been the most productive so far, partly
because of "phenominal agreements" reached at the U.S.-Soviet summit -
in Iceland.
Max Kampelman said the basis for the Reykjavik agreements
between President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev was laid
in previous sessions of the Geneva talks, which began March 12, 1985.
Kampelman said American and Soviet negotiators made progress at
the sixth round in all three fields covered at Geneva: medium-range
missiles; long-range or strategic, nuclear weapons,.and space and
defense systems.
The United States feels an arms control agreement could be reached
in the next year if each side makes a serious effort, he said. Both
Washington and Moscow have brought new proposals to Geneva since
the summit Oct. 11-12.
Automation affects industry
DETROIT-The next step in factory automation, seen as a key to
U.S. industry's ability to compete in a global market, will have the
biggest impact on white-collar and management workers, experts said
"Blue-collar labor is not a major cost factor. Middle management,

white collar, top management is where the cost of doing business has
collected," said Michael Cuddy, director of Martin Marietta Energy
Systems' computer-integrated manufacturing, or CIM, divison in Oak
Ridge, Tenn.
CIM, or computer integrating of fragmented manufacturing
operations into a single smooth operation, begins where specific
factory-floor automation left off and will reduce expense and time in
product development and production, said Donald Manor, design
systems manager for Deere and Co. in Moline, Ill.






WASHINGTON (AP)-Confronted with
spiraling costs and crowding in U.S. prisons,
a group of conservative scholars and
politicians is advocating alternatives to prison
like restitution, community service, and even
Several of the 29 contributors to a new
book published here yesterday, which departs
from conservative dogma on incarceration, are
eyeing the Republican presidential nomination
in 1988.
THERE WAS wide agreement on
reserving expensive prison space for violent
criminals and putting those who commit non-
violent property crimes to work, often outside
prison, to repay their victims.
"The traditional conservative view is:
'Lock 'em up and throw away the key',"
Patrick McGuigan, co-editor of the book,
"Crime and Punishment in Modern America,"
said in an interview.
"Leftists have talked for years about
opening up the jails. Here are some
conservatives who say: 'Don't just let them

go, but here are some possible paths out of
increasing crowding and an increasing burden
on the taxpayers'," McGuigan added.
MCGUIGAN is director of the Institute
for Government and Politics of the Free
Congress Research and Education Foundation,
an influential conservative thinktank in
Another institute compendium in 1983,
"Criminal Justice Reform: A Blueprint,"
contained 10 chapters that ultimately
paralleled 10 of the 16 . sections of the
sweeping Comprehensive Crime Control Act
of 1984.
Like that book, this one is studded with
prominent contributors from a broad range of,
conservatism, including Attorney General
Edwin Meese.
THE NEW book has chapters on prison
policy by former Delaware governor Pete du
Pont, a declared candidate for the 1988 GOP
nomination, and by Sen. William Armstrong
of Colorado, whose chance for that nomin-
ation was the subject of a recent Conservative

Digest cover story.
Rep. Jack Kemp, the former football
quarterback from Buffalo, N.Y., who has made
no secret of his presidential ambitions, also
addressed the subject, as did Herbert Titus,
dean of the School of Public Policy at CBN
University, founded by the Rev. Pat
Robertson, also weighing a bid for the GOP
Armstrong and Sen. Sam Nunn, the
conservative Democrat from Georgia,
described their bill to limit prison to federal
convicts who threatened or used force,
endangered national security, lived solely off
crime, were paid for crime, dealt drugs,
violated gun or explosive laws, or misused
public office. Other convicts would be given
very short prison time or probation, both
coupled with restitution to their victims and
community service.
"Penal imprisonment is not always an
appropriate punishment for certain types of
criminal offenses," they wrote.

'U' faculty, students
debate research policy


(Continued from Page 1)
These and other groups will make
their recommendations to Vice
President for Research Linda
Wilson before Dec. 10.
The Board of Regents is expected
to vote on the proposals sometime
next semester.
THE DEBATE over classfied
research has been going on since
the Vietnam era even though
classified research accounts for only
one half of 1 percent of the
University's total research budget.
But many people link classified
research withsecret weapons
research that went on during the
Vietnam War. The "end-use" clause
was an outgrowth of that fear.
Opponents to the "end-use"
clause, such as engineering graduate
student Mark Jaffe, say that the
common goal shared by all is to
prevent a "nuclear winter."
Jaffe says a strong defense can
end the arms race. "I have the same
goals of those who oppose military
research - I don't want a nuclear
winter - but I believe in a strong
defense to accomplish that goal."

the "end-use" clause, such as
Philosophy Prof. Carl Cohen, take
Jaffe's argument one step further by
saying that the clause inhibits
researchers from pursuing topics
that interest them.
"By making it into a regental
bylaw, you are telling everyone else
what they may not do, and that is
not academic freedom," said Cohen.
LSA junior Robyn Watts said
that by dropping the "end-use"
clause, "The University will accept
research projects with the clear and
foreseeable purpose to kill and
incapacitate human beings."
The current research guidelines
have been in effect since 1972,
although some amendments were
made in 1976. Three years ago
both faculty and student groups
overwhelmingly prescribed
extending the kill-maim clause to
cover all types of research, not just
classified research.
The regents killed the proposal,
fearing a drastic reduction in defense
department projects. Some accused
the regents of not wanting to
jeopardize potential funding from
