Republican Senator deals
blow to Bork nomination
WASHINGTON - Robert Bork's chances were dealt a severe setback
yesterday when a key Republican senator joined three formerly undecided
Southern Democrats in declaring opposition to President Reagan's
nominee to the Supreme Court.
The latest blows to the embattled Bork came when Sen. Arlen Specter
of Pennsylvania, am moderate Republican, joined three Southern
Democrats in announcing they will vote to reject the nomination.
Reagan, far from giving up, said, "I'm working my head off to make
sure that we don't lose it."
The Judiciary Committee will vote next Tuesday on its
recommendation to the full Senate.
Senate to vote on AIDS bill
LANSING - Legislation to' require Michigan school districts to
provide instruction about AIDS unanimously cleared a state Senate
The bill would insert the AIDS education requirement in a section of
Michigan law dealing with instruction on communicable diseases.
As introduced by Sen. Jackie Vaughn (D-Detroit), the bill also would
have required sex education in schools, instead of just permitting it. But
other senators said that could generate enough controversy to stall the
Jean Chabut, chief of the center for health promotion in the state
Department of Public Health, endorsed the bill.
"This is being driven by the AIDS epidemic," she said. "It is much
better to treat it as a comminicable disease" rather than in sex education
Captain killed in Iraq attack
MANAMA - Iraqi warplanes fired a missle yesterday at a shrimp boat
in the Persian Gulf and killed its Australian captain after Iranian
speedboats attacked at least three tankers in 24 hours, sources said.
The 85-foot trawler Shenton Bluff was damaged but didn't sink, said
salvage executives who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The trawler is one of 10 jointly owned by the Australian firm Bluff
Fisheries and a United Arab Emirates firm, al-Aquilli. The trawlers were
on contract to the Iranian government, which charters foreign commercial
The captain, indentified as Robert Wellcock, was at the helm and died
when the missle hit the trawler's wheelhouse, the executives said. They
said the six other crewmen survived the attack.
Nicaragua reopens newspaper
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - Nicaragua's only opposition newspaper
resumed publication yesterday after a 15-month forced closure with a
banner headline saying, "Triumph For The People."
La Prensa, once Nicaragua's most popular newspaper, resurfaced after
the leftist Sandinista goverment approved the reopening on Sept. 19.
President Daniel Ortega said the move was in line with the new
regional peace plan, which calls for restoration of democratic freedoms.
Publisher Violeta Chamorro said Ortega assured her the newspaper would
be allowed to print without censorship.
The 62-year-old La Prensa was shut down June 26, 1986 following
U.S. congressional approval of $100 million in aid for the Contra rebels.
The government enacted strict censorship following the first declaration of
a state of emergency in March 1982 after some early Contra attacks. La
Prensa had a permanent censor assigned to it.
Popcorn plethora plagues.
Phillips; puzzles housepet
Orville Redenbacher would be green with envy. LSA junior Mike
Phillips has some popcorn on his hands - 35 pounds of popcorn to
be precise. And he doesn't know what to do with it.
The popcorn is leftover from last weekend's Earthfest, an
ecological extravaganza sponsored by the Michigan Student
Assembly. After an unexpectedly small turnout at a Palmer Field
concert last Saturday, Phillips, who coordinated Earthfest for MSA,
was stuck with 40 pounds of uneaten popcorn that was to have been
distributed to the attendants.
He and his housemates already ate one five-pound bag, but that's
all they can handle.
Looking for a way to dipose of the popcorn without throwing it
out, Phillips turned to his housepet. That didn't work.
"The cat won't eat it," said Phillips, who is still looking for a way
to get rid of the donated goodies.
