Agency wants more AIDS tests
ATLANTA (AP) - Federal health of -
ficials, worried by an increase in AIDS among
heterosexuals, said yesterday they may recom -
mend that AIDS blood tests be mandatory for
all patients admitted to hospitals and even
couples applying for marriage licenses.
The test for antibodies to the AIDS virus
now is required only for blood donors.
The federal Centers for Disease Control has
invited 250 public health officials to Atlanta for
a public hearing to discuss its proposal, said
Dr. Walter Dowdle, the CDC's AIDS director.
Those invited to the hearing Feb. 24-25
include members of civil liberties groups who
,may oppose the proposal, Dowdle said.
The CDC will decide after the hearing
whether to make a formal proposal about ex -
panded testing for AIDS. Such a recom -
mendation that state hospitals or government
agencies-make the tests mandatory would not be
binding on them, Dowdle said.
"What the meeting is really about is to ex -
plore the issues related to using the test to pre
vent further infection. We're looking for a
public forum," Dowdle said in an interview.
"We're saying these are the ways the tests
might besused. Here are the justifications, here
are the obstacles."
One obstacle, he said, could be a concern
over confidentiality. Hospitals and government
agencies would have to ensure that test results
remain secret to prevent discrimination against
AIDS carriers, he said.
He continued that the proposal is being
considered now because tests for exposure to
the AIDS virus have proven highly accurate and
because the number of Americans who have
contracted AIDS through heterosexual contact
has risen from only a few in 1981 to 4 percent
of the more than 30,000 confirmed cases now.
Of those confirmed cases, about half have died,
according to CDC figures.
"The person who benefits from the test is
the individual and the contacts of that indi -
vidual," Dowdle said.
Dowdle also said the CDC is not proposing
that a person who tested positive for the AIDS
antibody while applying for a marriage license
be denied a license.

One of Farber's projects was
heightening public awareness of
sexism in advertising. During
Sexual Assault Awareness Days,
sponsored last October by the
Sexual Assault Prevention and
Awareness Center, Farber staffed a
table in the Fishbowl with a
bulletin board displaying sexist ads,
encouraging students to fill out
form letters and send them to the

disgusting'," she remembered,

my office with ads, and they're still

Farber leaned forward across her
desk, which served as a landing
strip for a bright orange paper
airplane, and explained how she
approaches issues by raising aware -
ness. "Now sometimes people will
make the connection between sexist
advertising and exploitation of
women. People can accept it
because it's not radical; it's not
being shoved down their throats,"
Although the dual respon -
sibilities of an MSA representative
and committee chair leave Farber
"hurting for time," she says she
doesn't need much time to herself.
"I was bored at Christmas vac -

Farber's aggressive involvement
in activities began when she was
growing up in Scarsdale, N.Y.
According to her parents, she started
playing on athletic teams when she
was about six.
Wendy Farber, Hillary's mother,
recalled how her daughter wanted to
play soccer when she was eight, but
couldn't because the only team in
the area was all-boys.
"Paul (her father) had to become
a coach to get her on the team, and
he knew nothing about soccer," she
Farber's interest in athletics
carried over into junior high and
high school, where she played
varsity tennis for six years. But
during her first year at the
University, Farber was cut from the
intercollegiate tennis team.
"I'd always dreamed of playing
intercollegiate athletics at the
varsity level," she said. Her second
favorite sport, LaCrosse, was vir -
tually unknown in the University
community two years ago. Farber
was disappointed to discover that
the University had no LaCrosse
team, so she founded one.
Acting as the three-year president
and coach, she helped the club
evolve into a competing tean.with
equipment and uriforms. Earber
laughed, remembering the blank
looks and questions she got when
she first carried her LaCrosse stick
"It's sort of a 'Hillary Farber
Creation,"' she said. "It's kind of
been a baby project for me - I've
made this thing grow."
Maria-Paz Salas, LSA senior,
was one of the first players to
respond to Farber's fliers
advertising the club. "I was really
surprised to find that she was a
freshman," Salas said. "She was
really energetic about LaCrosse, and
very organized. She seemed like
somebody that would do something
and stick with it, and that's how
she really is."

Karen Tamborriello, the criminal
justice coordinator for Project
Community - a class which gives
credit for public service -
applauded Farber's dedication to her
work. "She's very committed to
trying to learn as much as pos -
sible," Tamborriello said. "Hillary
excelled at doing 'intake interviews'
at the county jail. She volunteered
to go out twice a week rather than
the required once."
The experience at the jail, as
well as spending her sophomore
year as a criminal investigator in
Washington, D.C., have heightened
Farber's interest in criminal law.

Buchanan quits White House
WASHINGTON - Patrick Buchanan, President Reagan's combative
chief of communications, added his name yesterday to a growing list of
administration resignations, saying he could work for conservative causes
more effectively outside the White House.
Buchanan, who announced last month that he would not run for
president, has seemed frustrated in his two-year campaign to get the
administration follow a hardline conservative script.
Announcing the resignation, presidential spokesman Marlin Fitzwater
said Buchanan "feels he can better influence the issues and politics of
1988 and the direction of the conservative movement and Republican
Party by speaking and writing from a vantage point outside the White
House overrides veto, sends
clean water bill to senate
WASHINGTON - All but two of Michigan's 18 congressmen
joined the house majority yesterday in voting to override President
Reagan's veto of a $20 billion clean water package that the president.
claims is too expensive.
Republican Reps, Guy Vander Jagt of Luther and William
Broomfield of Birmingham were among just 26 members who went
along with Reagan's last-minute plea to support his position that the:
bill was a budget-buster.
The 401-26 House vote to overturn the presidential veto sent the:
legislation to the Senate, where Reagan again was expected to be:
rebuffed in his bid to block the legislation. Michigan's two democratic
senators, Donald Riegle and Carl Levin, plan to vote in favor of the
override, aides said.
House allows big pay raise
WASHINGTON - Congress allowed itself a $12,100 pay raises, at
least temporarily, when the House let pass a midnight yesterday
deadline for rejecting the hefty pay increase.
Democratic leaders said the House would pass Senate-approoved leg -
islation on Wednesday that gives $50 million to the homeless and also
disapproves the pay raise.
But House Democratic Whip Tony Coelho of California said it was
unclear whether that action, in fact, repeal the pay raise because the vote
would take place after the midnight Tuesday deadline.
Still Coelho said, "There's still going to be a vote" later to repeal
the pay raise. "Don't create the impression that we've voided all oppor -
tunity" for a repeal, he told reporters.
Envoy Waite remains missing
BEIRUT - Iran's Foreign Ministry denied reports yesterday that
Anglican Church hostage negotiator Terry Waite was held by Iranian
Revolutionary Guards in Lebanon.
The fate of Waite remained a mystery. The emissary has not been
seen since he left his hotel in Moslem west Beirut on Jan. 20,
apparently for a meeting with the Shiite Moslem kidnappers. He did
Unconfirmed reports last week said Waite was spotted in Lebanon's

And some peace for coho salmon fingerlings of Lake Sequalitchew,
in the woods of the Army's Fort Lewis near Tacoma.
Wildlife managers use miniature speedboats, a "boomer shell" that
sounds like a shotgun, and a "screecher" that makes a sound like
fingers to scare away fish-eating fowl.
Otherwise, the lake used to fatten hatchery coho is a giant seafoood
buffet with mergansers and cormorants diving for dinner.
Larry Peck of the Department of Fisheries estimates that as much
as 30 percent of the million fingerlings raised in the 80-acre lake each
year were being eaten before the boats were introduced two years ago.
Now, he estimates, the loss is closer tol0 percent.
"When we've got those boats on the water, the birds are just gone,"
said Darrell Mills, manager of the Garrison Springs Hatchery.
"We speculate they think the boats are a predator they've never seen
