Gays present list of demands to Shapiro IN BRIEF
By SUSANNE SKUBIK
Following recent reports of violence against
homosexuals on campus, gay and lesbian
activists demanded yesterday that University
President Harold Shapiro help combat sexual
Members of the newly-formed Gay Political
Action Caucus members sat calmly at the round
table in the Regents' Room in the Fleming
Building and read Shapiro a list of 12 demands.
These include increasing gay support services in
the residence halls and establishing an academic
Gay Studies program, similar to the Women's
Gay PAC is a group of students concerned
with the increased physical and verbal abuse of
gay students on campus, said organizer Bill
Weherle, a graduate student in the Institute of
According to Weherle, the University's
Lesbian and Gay Male Program Office has
received calls from students who have been
harassed outside local bars or while walking
alone. One student, walking on a campus
street, was attacked by five men, Weherle said.
"Experts on human sexuality assert that
fully ten percent of the population is gay,
meaning that fully 3000 students at the
University have a direct need for support
services," said Adrianne Neff, a Gay PAC
organizer and LSA senior.
"Further, funds for outreach, civil rights
advocacy, and community events are
miniscule," she read from the list of demands.
Shapiro, who interrupted his schedule to
meet with the students, responded with a pledge
to consider the group's ideas.
The group is staging a demonstration on the

LSA Dean Peter Steiner believes
prolonging the review process is
unnecessary. "The idea of a rel-
atively short (review period) serves
the interests of the institution and
junior faculty members."
Faculty members worry that
lengthening the tenure review
period will cause recruitment prob-
lems. "Professor 'A' might not
want to wait 10 years and may go
elsewhere," said Janice Lindberg,
chair of the Tenure Committee of
the Senate Assembly. Lindberg said
various deans and professors have
met with the committee in the past
month to present their views.
The Tenure Committee is in
early discussion stages and will
presenttheir decision to SACUA,
Lindberg said. SACUA may then
adopt the decision and bring it
before the Senate Assembly which
may issue a formal statement to the
administration, Lindberg said.
Lindberg said she was also
concerned that lengthening the
probation period will put women at
a special disadvantage. The Univ-
ersity may be not be as appealing
to women if it adopts the new ten
year period, Lindberg said.
Many women wait until they are
granted tenure before they begin a

As Hood heard Shapiro's
testimony, he refrained from the
humorous, light-hearted manner he
exhibited while listening to offic-

leges. Hood said his concern over
racist incidents on campus con-
tributed to his stern demeanor. "We
were talking business," he ex-
Hood added he was convinced the
administration was taking positive
steps toward alleviating racial prob-
lems on campus.

Senate to release Contra aid
WASHINGTON - The Senate voted yesterday to release a $40
million aid installment for Nicaragua's Contra rebels, but many
senators said future aid requests may be in serious trouble.
The vote was 52 to 48 against a resolution to stop the aid.
Thirty-eight Republicans were joined by 14 Democrats in voting
against the disapproval resolution. Forty Democrats and eight
Republicans voted to cut off the aid.
Senate Majority Leader Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.), who had forecast the
results, moved immediately to bring up a House-passed resolution to
freeze the $40 million for six months pending a complete accounting of
how previous aid money has been spent. It was not clear whether that
move would succeed.
Congress to grant immunity
to Poindexter and North
WASHINGTON - Congressional investigators decided yesterday on
a strategy aimed at using limited-immunity grants to compel former
National Security Advisor John Poindexter and his deputy, Oliver
North, to break their silence about the Iran-Contra affair.
Under the investigators' timetable, Poindexter would not testify
publicly until June and North not until then or even later.
The plan, approved separately by the House and Senate panels
probing the affair, calls for the committees to conduct unprecedented
joint public hearings beginning May 5 in an effort to minimize what
some fear would be a circus atmosphere surrounding the sessions.
Independent Counsel Lawrence Walsh, who had urged the
committees to wait 90 days before granting immunity to Poindexter and
North, agreed to the timetable.
House passes new speed limits
WASHINGTON - The House, yesterday, approved and sent to the
Senate legislation that would let states raise speed limits to 65 mph on
stretches of rural interstate highway.
The 217-206 vote came shortly after the lawmakers approved a long-
awaited $88.6 billion highway and mass transit aid package that states
have said they need for delayed construction projects.
The vote on the highway bill, to which the speed limit question was
a separate amendment, was 407-17. But the entire measure is in doubt
because administration officials have said they will recommend that
President Reagan veto the bill because of excessive spending.
The proposal to let states abandon the 55 mph speed limit, which
was instituted in 1974 at the height of the energy shortage, was the
most controversial issue in the highway bill. It caused such a deep
dispute that its opponents agreed to a separate vote on the 65 mph
question so the rest of the highway measure could not be delayed.
Deaver indicted for perjury
WASHINGTON - Michael Deaver, a former presidential aide turned
high-profile lobbyist, was accused in a perjury indictment yesterday of
lying about whether he used his White House connections to further his
Deaver, the first person ever indicted under a Watergate-inspired law
authorizing independent investigations of top government officials, was
charged with lying to Congress and to the federal grand jury that
The 18-page indictment charges the former White House deputy chief
of staff with five counts of perjury when responding to allegations that
he used his White House connections to promote his lobbying
business, a potential violation of federal ethics laws.
Docs draw drinks, dollars
Not only did Steven Boskovich get his first pick in the annual
lottery drawing for medical internships, he got an unexpected $200
bonus to start his medical career. Boskovich, who will study internal
medicine at Northwestern University, got a bowl of dollar bills
contributed by every student called up before him. "Drinks for
everyone", yelled the ecstatic Boskovich as he celebrated with his
fellow students at the U-Club yesterday.
"I'm thrilled out of my pants", screamed Kevin Ashby to his friends
upon hearing he had recieved his first pick. Ashby will pracice internal
medicine at The University Of California/San Diego.
Boskovich and Ashby were not alone. Out of a class of 203, 114
students are going to work in the hospital of their choice. 85% of
students got their top three job picks. said Associate Medical School
Dean James Taren.
