Friday, however, Councilmembers
Ann Marie Coleman (D-First Ward)
and Dave DeVarti (D-Fourth Ward),
met with several University offi-
cials, including Vice President for
Student Services Henry Johnson, and
Vice President for Government
Relations Richard Kennedy to dis-
cuss the proposed ordinance. Cole-
man said those present at the meet-
ing favored the proposal.
But such a law, if passed, has
complications. City Attorney Bruce
Laidlaw said any crowd member who
participates in the process can be ar-
rested immediately - including
people who touch victims while
they are passed over them.
Robert Conn, Ann Arbor police
captain in charge of special services,
said the enforcement procedure will
be a matter of "who touched who
first? By the time the police respond
to it, it could be 70 rows away."
He said the proposed law is
"demeaning" to the University's
"adult, responsible" student body
but, "We enforce laws that are

Official foresees arms accord
WASHINGTON - National security adviser Frank Carlucci said
yesterday that a U.S.-Soviet accord on intermediate-range nuclear missiles
is "98 percent of the way there" and predicted Senate ratification.
However, a leading Senate Democrat warned that the superpower pact
could be doomed if conservative Republicans tamper with it by attaching
amendments on issues like the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan.
"I do think that there could be problems," said Sen. Alan Cranston (D-
Calif.), the Senate Democratic whip who is also a member of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee and the Select Committee on Intelligence.
Sen. Richard Lugar, a leading Republican and member of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee, also predicted some tough sailing in the
Senate for an INF treaty.

had more cases of the disease in the first nine months of 1987 - 4,239.

What is known as the "Luchaire Affair" involves the clandestine
delivery of 450,000 artillery shells to Iran between 1983 and 1986 under
the Socialist government of Premier Laurent Fabius.

President Francois Mitterrand knew about the sales, which contravened a
government embargo on shipments to Iran.

Daily Libels smash Review
Elbel Field became a battleground yesterday as The Daily Libels
football team defeated the Michigan Review gridders 14-0 on the strength
of two touchdown receptions by Daily Opinion staffer Jeffrey Rutherford,
an LSA junior.
Daily columnist Fat Al spearheaded the Libel's 'iron curtain' defense
by dropping several Review staffers into the mud.
"We totally dominated, we kicked some conservative ass," added Daily
Weekend Magazine Co-Editor and Linebacker Rebecca "Bubba"
Blumenstein, an LSA junior.
Fat Al added, "We had time to knock 'em down, spit on the ground,
turn around twice, and then get the quarterback."
Lineperson Mark Weisbrot, an Opinion staffer and Rackham graduate
student, summed up the afternoon's significance, saying, "This one's for
