problem... I think this is very cru-
cial."
Moody also repeated the message
that change must come from within,
saying that it is easy to look at what
other communities and other
institutions do, but much more
difficult to look inside oneself.
Some professors were concerned
with the lack of minority faculty in
LSA. Classics Chair Ludwig Koe-
nen said that very few minorities
study in his field. And Political
Science Chair Jack Walker said that
even with a strong recruitment ef-
fort, no minorities' candidates have
been found to fill any of the six
open faculty positions in his de-
partment.
But Moody countered that some-
times recruiters look in places where
there are few minorities, "like
Northern Michigan or South
Dakota."
"It is a long-run problem,"
Steiner concluded at the meeting's
end. While people say that one can't
do anything to effect change in the
short run, Steiner quoted economist
John Maynard Keynes, who said, "In
the long run, we'll all be dead."
"I think we can do more," Steiner
said. "As long as that is the case, we
haven't done enough."

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press reports
French detain Iranians in
alleged deal to free hostages
PARIS - Police rounded up dozens of anti-Khomeini Iranians yester-
day for possible expulsion. Faction leaders claimed the sweep was part of
a deal with Tehran to free French hostages in Lebanon.
The crackdown came 11 days after pro-Iranian kidnappers in Lebanon
released two French hostages. At least three other French citizens still are
held there.
Massoud Rajavi, leader of the People's Mujahedeen of Iran, said in a
telexed message to President Francois Mitterrand the arrests of Muja-
hedeen members "demonstrate the ugly deal" between Iran and France.
Premier Jacques Chirac's government denies any deal. "There is no
bargaining at all," Security Minister Robert Pandraud said.
Iranian officials deny allegations that France bargained for the release
of hostages.
Brown to leave state Senate
LANSING - Beleaguered state Sen. Basil Brown officially submitted
his resignation from the Senate yesterday. He will resign from the Senate
on Jan. 4 - just 90 minutes before he's to be sentenced on drug charges.
Brown (D-Highland Park) sent a letter to the secretary of the Senate.
expressing "great reluctance and much emotion" at quitting the Senate af-
ter 31 years.
"In the interest of providing (the constituents) with a senator who is
able to serve unfettered by this scandal, I believe that my immediate res-
ignation is in their best interest," Brown wrote.
Brown - the longest-serving member of the Senate - pleaded guilty
to charges of delivering small amounts of marijuana and cocaine last
Monday in Ingham County Circuit Court. He could face up to 20 years in
prison.
Contra rebels begin cease-fire
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - Contra rebels began a 36-hour unilateral
cease-fire today in their battle against the Nicaraguan government and
President Daniel Ortega rejected as "impossible" a Christmas truce.
The Contra cease-fire, announced in Miami, came in response to a re-
quest from Nicaraguan Archbishop Miguel Obando y Bravo, who medi-
ated talks between the two sides in the Dominican Republic last week.
The unilateral cease-fire began at 1 p.m. to mark the Roman Catholic
celebration of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary, said
Adolfo Calero, one of the six directors of the Nicaraguan Resistance, the
Contra umbrella organization.
Officials explain Bishop's role
in ending 11-day prison siege
ATLANTA - Negotiators who worked to end the Atlanta federal
prison siege said yesterday they were reluctant to ask the help of a Cuban
cleric during the 11-day takeover because "had that failed... we were out of
options."
There was criticism earlier that Auxiliary Bishop Agustin Roman,
who was credited with playing a key role in ending a similar uprising in
Louisiana, was not brought into the Atlanta negotiations despite pleas
from inmates that he be present.
Weldon Kennedy, agent in charge of the FBI's Atlanta office, said ne-
gotiators waited until an agreement with inmates was reached Thursday
before seeking help from Roman. "The bishop was, in effect, our last re-
sort." He provided a "final moral force," Kennedy said.
The agreement resulted in the release of 89 hostages.

He then recalled the Iran/Contra affair, when he
heard a reporter say that "nobody wants the trauma of
another Watergate." Cockburn responded, "Well, I want
a trauma!"
He also remembered NBC newscaster John
Chancellor as having said that "nobody wants Ronald
Reagan to fail." However, Cockburn said, "Millions
of people wanted Ronald Reagan to fail, and on a daily
basis. They yearned for failure."
Cockburn also questioned the accuracy of the media
in its reporting on foreign affairs. He gave the
example of when the press erroneously reported a
shipment of Soviet weapons to Nicaragua, while it was
not yet verified.
"So, acting President North reported that the 'expert

on reporting
analysts' said Mig 25's were on their way to
Nicaragua. Then it's on T.V., and there it was,"
Cockburn recalled.
The columnist expressed doubt about the media's
desire to get at the truth, recalling it's behavior during
the U.S. invasion of Grenada.
"Reagan's one mistake was that he kept the press
out for a few hours.... The press was in an uproar,"
Cockburn recalled. "They then went in and said 'Hey,
this is fine.' And recently there was the fourth
anniversary. How many of them went back?"
Cockburn ended his speech with a call to critique the
"official version" of the news being presented in
today's media.
His visit was sponsored by the Rackham Student
Government and the Latin American Solidarity
Committee.

Headache art helps migraine
sufferers understand torment
BOSTON - One woman depicted it as demons banging on her scalp.
Others portrayed it as a jagged arc of silver light or a forehead impaled by
a nail.
Each was a sufferer of migraine headaches and created works in three-
day exhibit of 200 paintings and drawings titled the "Art of Migraine."
The show should help migraine sufferers and others understand the
torment and frustration of the attacks, said Dr. Egilius Spierings, director
of the Headache Research Foundation at the Faulkner Hospital, where the
display is currently being held.
"The pain of migraine is very real," Spierings said. "After looking at
these pictures it's obvious we're not dealing with an imaginary illness."
"We've had people come in and look at a painting and say, 'That's
exactly what I feel. I never knew it was a migraine,"' said Spierings, a
neurologist who has studied headaches since 1974.
