Campus magazine shifts focus
By FRANCIE ARENSON
The days of the big blue cover are
gone for The Michigan Review, just
one part of the magazine's staff move
to moderate The Review's reputation
as a "Republican rag."
Originally a 16-page tabloid, The
Review was established six years ago
as a conservative response to The
Michigan Daily, according to Editor
in, Chief Seth Klukoff. W it h
decreased political discrepancy
between the two papers, and
increasing financial problems,
however, the Review's editorial board
decided to start fresh this month with
a new 32-page magazine format and
Rather than attempting to combat
and compete with the Daily, the
Review now tries to serve as its
complement, Klukoff said.
The board hopes students will
come to rely on The Review for
intensive coverage of issues, as they
do The Daily for day-to-day reports.
"The Review, by nature, is different
than the Daily," said Executive
Editor Rebecca Chung. "Articles
take months of research. We have a
month.We can reflect."
"We have decided to fill the void
on campus for a thorough, well-
written student affairs magazine,"
wrote Klukoff in this month's issue.
"To that end we will attempt to
cover, in complete a manner as
possible, the major issues which
affect the University of Michigan."
Although the magazine maintains
a moderate slant, its staff encourages
the objective discussion of ideas. To
this end, each issue contains a
Review Forum column through
which controversial issues are
debated. Said Klukoff, "The new
Review provides students with a
much needed forum for rational dis-
The first issue of the revised
Review includes articles on a wide
range of topics. Stories range from
"U.S. Policy in Central America" to
a discussion of "Pop vs. Soda." The
issue features the beginning of a
series of exclusive interviews with
presidential candidates of both the
Republican and Democratic parties.
The September edition of The
Review also includes an analysis of
the Madonna craze and articles
covering women's issues,
engineering, and sports. In upcoming
issues, the staff hopes to embellish
the art and investigative sections.
Reports on minority and academic
affairs and PIRGIM will also be
In response to the new Review,
Daily Editor in Chief Rob Earle,
said, "I like the direction they're
moving. However, I never saw them
as competition. We're not connected
any more than Time Magazine is
connected to the New York Times.
It's hard for a monthly magazine to
compete with a daily paper."
The Review decided to change its
format last April.
"There was approximately a four
fold increase in cost going from the
tabloid to the magazine," said
Publisher David Katz. "Funds were
raised through fund raising,-
advertisement, and private donation."
The Review is a non-profit organi-
zation and is not affiliated with a'
political party or the University,
according to the magazine's logo.
Alleged assault victim
begins testimony in court
(Continued from Page 1)
Defense attorney Steven Boak
began to establish that point during
his cross examination, yesterday,
when he questioned the victim about
discrepancies between her statements
during the pre-trial examination and
her testimony before the jury. He
constantly asked whether her memo-
ry was better now than it had been
during the weeks following the inci-
She responded to his probing of
her memory by saying, "I may have
gotten things out of sequence at the
preliminary exam," before denying
Boak's inference thatshe rhadpossi-
bly changed her story.
THE PROSECUTOR said the
victim had diverged from what she
had previously said, but both he and
the defense attorneys declined any
One point of contention was the
time period surrounding the alleged
assault. The witness maintained she
is not clear about the timing of rele-
vant events as she did not have a
watch on, nor could she see a clock.
Also, the defense questioned her rec-
ollection of the loft in which the al-
leged rape took place as what she
testified to remember differs from the
type of loft existing in the room,
according to police pictures.

guilty to the rape charge, which car-

suit charging the victim with false
prosecution, defamation of character,
and intentional infliction of emo-
tional distress, in which he is seek-

Reagan urges Mideast peace
UNITED NATIONS - President Reagan confronted Iran at the
United Nations yesterday with a demand that it must "clearly and
unequivocally" accept a cease-fire in its Persian Gulf war with Iraq or
face a worldwide arms embargo spearheaded by the United States.
Reagan set a new deadline of 24 hours for Tehran to accept the cease-
fire resolution approved unanimously July 20 by the U.N. Security
Referring to the speech Iranian President Ali Khamenei is scheduled
to deliver today to the 42nd U.N. General Assembly session, the
president said: "I take this opportunity to call upon him clearly and
unequivocally to state whether Iran accepts 598 (the resolution) or not.
"If the answer is positive, it would be a welcome step and major
breakthrough. If it is negative, the council has no choice but rapidly to
adopt enforcement measures."
Atlanta mayor criticizes Bork
WASHINGTON - Civil rights leaders yesterday urged the Senate
to reject the nomination of Robert Bork to the Supreme Court, with
Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young attacking him as "a protector of
privilege and power rather than opportunity and freedom."
Had Bork's views prevailed in the United States, Young testified,
"Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would not be a venerated national hero. He
would instead be serving a jail sentence in Alabama."
Young, a former aide to King, told the Senate Judiciary Committee:
"I might have been branded a terrorist and jailed for my participation in
the civil rights movement instead of becoming the first black elected to
Congress from Atlanta in more than 100 years."
UAW, GM negotiate contract
DETROIT - United Auto Workers union leaders turned their
attention Monday to how they will make the job-protecting pact with
Ford Motor Co. fit General Motors Corp., the nation's largest
But that may turn out to be less difficult than it appears because the
UAW purposely created a contract designed to be. a pattern for the
industry, said Harley Shaiken, labor relations expert with the
University of California at San Diego.
"What was just concluded at Ford were not simply Ford negotiations
but industrywide negotiations that happened to take place at Ford. This
was not an agreement tailored to Ford's particular condition but rather
an agreement negotiated at Ford, tailored to the UAW's perception of
the industry," Shaiken said.
"Were the contract tailored specifically to Ford, it probably would
have been significantly richer," he said.
Jury selection begins in
LaRouche conspiracy trial
BOSTON - Jury selection began yesterday for the trial of political
extremist Lyndon LaRouche, five of his organizations and seven aides
on federal charges that they raised more than $1 million through credit
card fraud and then conspired to obstruct an investigation.
LaRouche was absent, campaigning for the presidency, his lawyer
An unsettled dispute over the prosecutor's job status left the
availability of key government witnesses uncertain.
The case, coming to trial after a year of maneuvering by the
government and 19 defence attorneys, began with screening of more
than 300 prospective jurors.

Soviet baubles baffle leaders
MOSCOW - Dolls whose hair falls out or whose legs don't match
or chemistry sets that can send a budding young scientist to the hospital
or a toy camel that, for no apparent reason, has stripes like a zebra are
some of the poorly designed and shoddily manufactured toys now being
created for Soviet boys and girls, Pravda reported.
"You rarely find so much junk, lack of taste, and technical ineptitude
as you do in the toy sector," the Communist Party daily said in a sharp
criticism of goods on sale in Soviet toy stores.
Under Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, the Kremlin leadership has
vowed to improve the quality and variety of housing, food, and other
goods, but admits that progress is slow. There has been little time to deal
with consumer items, even though Pravda said toys have a serious side
that should concern everyone.
"In essence, all of us who are now adults, even the most important
and serious among us, began with toys," said Pravda columnist V.
