"It's hard to get the best of her,"
As a Couzens RD, Hackel was
concerned about the racist flier
incident last February, in which a
student slipped a facsimile of an
Ohio hunting license, declaring
"open season" on blacks, under the
door of a lounge where some black
students were studying
"I was very upset that in my
home that would happen.It really
bothered me. It pissed me off," she
"Anybody who wants to can
hold any view they want. I think a
lot of people hold very bizarre
views and very incorrect views, but
they are entitled to hold them," she
"But when they start inflicting
themf on somebody else, they start
threatening somebody else -

HACKEL said she admires the
student involvement in the
demonstrations that are fighting
racism on campus. "I think what
people have decided is that they're
not going to let it go by anymore. I
think that's what all these protests

to exclude non-blacks in their

exactly what they are fighting
Her door is covered with anti-war
posters, several Far Side cartoons,
and a "random creative work of the
week." She believes people should
keep an openrmind when it comes
to controversial issues. Still,
people have regularly torn fliers

"I try to make my bulletin board

College, Hackel said, is as a
place to get an education in life, not
just in classroom subjects.
"So many people come here and
they read what they're supposed to
read, and they study what they're
supposed to study and then they
leave. I don't think that's what you
get an education for. You've got to
learn something and not just spit
facts back out. That's why I put

is no site, no builder, and no
backing for the millage," said
The three candidates then turned
their attention to the issue of crime
in Ann Arbor.
Pierce said Ann Arbor has a
relatively low number of robberies
as compared to other U.S. cities.
He attributed the city's increased
crime rate to the increased poverty
level throughout the United States.
Campbell was grilled on his
solutions to the crime problem in
the city. He wants to increase
police visibility in high crime areas
by hiring more officers. He
supports enlarging the police force
to allow quicker response to calls.
Epton drew applause when he
said the police programs in the city
need to be better organized and that

them on people who come in from

NICOSIA, Cyprus - The speaker of Iran's Parliament said
yesterday that Americans around the world would be in danger if the
United States launches an attack in the Persian Gulf, where U.S. Navy
forces have been strengthened.
Hashemi Rafsanjani also renewed Iran's offer to intervene with pro-
Iranian Shiite Moslem kidnappers in Lebanon for the release of
Americans if Washington returns an estimated $5 billion in Iranian
assets frozen in 1979.
The United States says Iran has deployed anti-ship missiles in the
Strait of Hormuz, the 40-mile-wide southern gateway to the Persian
Gulf through which 20 percent of the non-communist world's oil

Opponents of Contra aid
fail to shut down filibuster
WASHINGTON - Senate opponents of aid to the Nicaraguan
Contras failed again yesterday to shut down a filibuster and move
toward a vote on a six-month halt in military assistance to the rebels.
The vote was evenly divided, or 10 votes short of the 60 needed to
end a filibuster.
Senate Majority Leader Robert Byrd (D-W. Va.) said another
attempt would be made today and possibly yet another on Thursday. "It
depends on how much gain we make," he said.
A first attempt to choke off the filibuster failed on Monday, with 46
senators favoring it and 45 voting against it.
Female prison guard killed
JACKSON, Mich. - A female prison guard, apparently working
alone, was killed yesterday and at least two prisoners were questioned
after her body was found in a stairwell at the State Prison for Southern
Michigan, officials said.
Inmates in the prison's maximum-security Central Complex were
confined to their cells after the body of Josephine McCallum, of
Lansing was discovered, said Corrections Department spokesman Jim
He said at least two inmates had been segregated from other inmates
and were being questioned in the guard's killing, the second in
Michigan prison history. The death was being treated as a homocide and
as an isolated incident, Curran said.
He said a food-service employee found the woman's body at about
8:20 a.m. near an auditorium in the prison's Central Complex.

contribute copious cash
WASHINGTON - It was a banner year for guilt in 1986. Just ask
the U.S. Treasury.
Ameircans who believed they had defrauded the government
voluntarily sent in $380, 949.49 last year, an al-time high for the
"conscience fund," set up to allow people to repay Uncle Sam for
everything from twice-used postage stamps to old Army uniforms.
James Madison was in the White House when the Treasury
Department fund was started back in 1811 with a payement of $5 sent
in by am anonymous donor who wanted to make restitution.
Over the years, $5.7 million has been received. The donations last
year were up almost 50 percent from the previous year. The total was
boosted by one contribution of $50,000 which arrived by check without
any note of explanation from someone in Missouri.
"This afternoon I found the enclosed coin (10 cents) on the
pavement. I am unable to determine who the owner is," wrote one
exceptionally scrupulous individual.
