Campus police bill

response time would be much
quicker."
But Michael Phillips, chair of the
MSA's Students Rights Committee,
said this bill is not the solution to
campus crime.
"People who commit serious
crimes are not going to be afraid of a
police force on campus. On campus,
we need more lighting, and for the
public safety department to work
more closely with the Ann Arbor
police department," he said. "People

need to be more aware for themselves
of what can happen to them."
State Sen. Lana Pollack (D-Ann
Arbor), who said she was the only
person to speak out against the bill
before today's vote, said a campus
police force would be inappropriate.
"The very nature of the University
is independence, and that's a good
reason not to have a police force,"
she said. "A police force always
needs specific scrutiny and public
oversight. should do what they do
best - teaching, research, and
service," she said.
A university can now deputize its
public safety officers through an
agreement with the local county
sheriff, but the University contracts
with the Ann Arbor Police to patrol
campus.

State raises speed limit to 65
LANSING - Michigan's painful struggle to raise its maximum speed
limit finally ended yesterday as the Legislature voted to permit a 65 mph
limit and Gov. James Blanchard signed the bill into law.
"We believe we have the tools to enforce the law - enforcement will be
reasonable," Blanchard said, signing the bill about five hours after it
cleared the Legislature.
"Public safety is our goal," he added.
"As I have said all along, I believe it is reasonable to raise the speed
limit to 65 mph on rural interstates if there are sufficient safeguards and
the tools to enforce the higher limit," Blanchard said. "This bill contains
those important measures without diverting resources from our anti-crime
efforts."
The measure, which will take effect Nov. 29, will raise the speed limit
to 65 on 720 miles of rural interstate freeway - out of 118,000 miles of
Michigan roads, streets and highways.
Dow average gains 90 points
NEW YORK - Wall Street regained a measure of its lost vitality
yesterday, drawing a second wind that blew the Dow Jones industrial
average up more than 90 points in its third largest gain ever.
The Dow average closed up 91.51 points at 1,938.33. The average
regained five percent of its value after struggling to a mere 0.33-point
gain Wednesday.
The broader market, which had lagged behind the blue-chip issues
represented in the Dow, also improved with four stocks making money
for every one that lost.
The market moved steadily higher despite a drop in the dollar and
losses on stock exchanges in the Far East.
The market value of American stocks, as measured by Wilshire
Associates, rose $106.57 billion, or 4.73 percent, to $2.36 trillion after.
On wednesday, stocks fell, $12 billion.
House votes down tax increase
WASHINGTON - The House yesterday temporarily scuttled a $12
billion tax increase and other parts of a Democratic deficit-reduction bill,
insisting that congressional and White House negotiators first be given a
chance to produce a plan for attacking the government's debt.
Immediately after losing a 217-203 vote, Speaker Jim Wright (D-
Texas) served notice that the House will have to face the issue again - but
without an attached welfare-overhaul provision. He acknowledged that the
welfare section, which has nothing to do with reducing the deficit, caused
several Democrats to desert on the vote.
But welfare was only part of the problem, insisted Rep. Bob Michel of
Illinois, the Republican leader.
Sandinistas refuse to talk
with Contra rebel leaders
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - Nicaragua will never talk directly or
indirectly with Contra rebel leaders and won't declare an amnesty as long
as the U.S.-backed insurgency continues, the ruling Sandinista National
Liberation Front said yesterday.
The Sandinista communique appeared to eliminate hopes that a Central
American peace agreement could be.put into effect by Nov. 5, a deadline
reaffirmed by five Central American foreign ministers Wednesday after a
meeting in Costa Rica.
"As long as the platforms of aggression against Nicaragua continue in
neighboring countries, as long as the counterrevolution is not ordered to
quit its war against the legitimate government of Nicaragua, the
Esquipulas agreements will not be fulfilled," the Sandinistas said.

Johnson said she was raped at age 17
by three men when her car broke
down and they offered her a ride
home. Like many rape victims,
Johnson said she seldom discussed
the incident with others and became
introverted.
Johnson has continued counseling
at the center. "At SAPAC, I'm
allowed to cry hysterically. It's been
very helpful that people have
accepted my tears,"she said.
A gay man who was raped said he
"broke the rules" by not fitting into
the male sex-role stereotype of being
domineering, competitive and
insensitive. "Men can't express their

Another woman speaker said she
was raped in an alley "shortcut"
while walking from South Quad to
go swimming at the Intramural
Building. "I heard footsteps behind
me and got grabbed and dragged into
a garage and raped," she said.
The woman said the Ann Arbor
police further victimized her with
their callous questions and behavior.
She said one police officer asked her
why she was walking in an alley
wearing only a bathing suit and a
sweatsuit. She said the officer told
her, "'Well honey, welcome to the

Traditional treats win over
silly chili in cooking contest
ROSAMOND, Calif. - Australians tried ale-soaked kangaroo meat,
one entrant used his World War II-era Spam recipe, and Texans stood by
with spiced armadillo. But it was prime beef and sausage that won the
chili cookoff.
More than 15,000 people sampled the hot, hotter, and hottest entires
this week at the 21st annual World Championship Cookoff, and Margo
Knudsen became only the fifth woman to win the Mojave Desert
competition.
The Loomis resident, who won $25,000, used cubed prime beef and
sausage for her chili, flavored with three kinds of chili powder, cumin,
and coriander, and served with oregano tea.
Losing entires included the Spam chili recipe of the 64-year-old society
historian, Ormly Gumfudgin. He said the recipe was in honor of the 50th
anniversary of the canned spiced ham.
Gumfudgin said he last prepared Spam chili when he was a prisoner of
the Japanese. "They immediately saw to it that I escaped," he said
