He said, for example, that Pantree
management has apologized and
gave him and a guest a free meal. In
addition, the two harassers have been
banned from the restaurant, Pantree
general manager Jennifer Dawson
said.
However, in addition to the boy-
ott, LaGROC is demanding that
Hardkins and manager Dell Robert-
son be fired. Dawson said Wednesday
that she does not plan to fire them.
She said Hardkins made a mistake
in judgment and that the problem
should have been "nipped in the bud"
before the harassment took place.
"Paul thought that he could con-.
trol the situation through talking to
(the harassers)," she said.
To cope with security problems
;such as these during the late night
bar rush, Dawson said the Pantree
,will have security guards on duty
during late night weekend hours. In
addition, the two men who were in-
volved in the vomiting and spitting
,are no longer allowed in the restau-
rant. The three other men involved
,re banned from the restaurant on
Tuesday nights only. Tuesday is

traditionally considered gay night at
the nearby Nectarine Ballroom.
Dawson also said accusations that
the Pantree discriminates against
homosexuals are unfair because the'
restaurant employs many gay men*
and lesbians. "In fact three out of the
five waiters working at the time of
the incident were gay."
While Wayman acknowledges
that there are many gay men and
lesbians that work at the Pantree,
she said the Pantree has had discrim-
ination problems in the past. In
1983, the Pantree was charged with
firing three women because they
were lesbians.
Raymond Chauncey of the Ann
Arbor Mayor's Human Rights
commission, an intermediary in the
1983 case, said the charges were
dropped by the city attorney because
of insufficient evidence.
LaGROC, in a letter delivered to
the Pantree on Wednesday, also de-
manded a public apology, and that
the Pantree make an unspecified fi-
nancial contribution to the gay
community.
Dawson refused to comment on
these demands. "We are going to do
what it takes to make this restaurant
a safe place to eat," she said.

declines among
'adult smokers
ATLANTA (AP) - The cigarette smoking rate in the United States has
reached the lowest level ever reported, with less than 27 percent of adult
Americans lighting up in 1986, federal health researchers said yesterday.
That's down nearly four percentage points from a 1985 survey and down
nearly 14 points in two decades.
The first Adult Use of Tobacco Survey, taken by the national Centers fog
Disease Control, questioned more than 13,000 adult Americans late last year.
It found that 26.5 percent of them smoked - 29.5 percent of the men and
23.8 percent of the women.
Those numbers were down from a National Health Interview Survey of
1985, which found that 30.4 percent of its survey group smoked - 33.2
percent of the men and 27.9 percent of the women.
The discrepancy may be due to differences between the two studies, but
"our survey is (also) a large survey," said Dr. Ron Davis, director of the
CDC's U.S. Office on Smoking and Health. "We consider our data to be
very reliable."
The nation's smoking rate has fallen dramatically since 1964, the year of
the U.S. surgeon general's landmark warning about smoking and cancer,
heart disease and other health problems. At that time, 40 percent of the adult
population smoked - 53 percent of men and 32 percent of women.
The CDC noted that while "much progress has been achieved," an esti-
mated 47 million American adults are still smokers - people who have in
their lifetimes smoked at least 100 cigarettes and who reported that they
currently smoke.
The CDC survey found that an estimated 24.6 percent of the U.S. adult
population - those 17 and over - are former smokers, including 30.4
percent of men and 19.3 percent of women.

AT&T tests phone cards
I residence halls, Union
(Continued from Page 1)

: According to Residential College
frst-year student Genevive Wilson,
tie cash card phones are easy to use.
'They're great because you don't
have to use change, but then again
it's one more card to get stolen. For

those of us always digging around
for change in our pockets, it's defi-
nitely a convenience."
The cash card phones are widely
used throughout Europe and Asia.
Michigan Bell borrowed the concept
from England.

The hand on the left is poised on what could be the most
essential part of your education.
A MacintoshM computer.
And the hand on the right is gripping pure, simple,
unadulterated fun.
A Honda Scooter. One we're giving away
All you have to do for a chance to drive it away is visit
your campus computer center and fill out an entry form. While
you're there, take a Macintosh for a test drive.
Because Macintosh can help you write term papers,
categorize elements of the periodic table, plot the rise and fall
of pork-belly prices, compile computer code, and talk to other
computers.
And the first 250 people on campus who get behind a
mouse, so to speak, will receive a free Apple®memo board.
So head over to your campus computer center today.
And ask about our Student Financing Program.
Who knows? You may soon find yourself cruising a little
farther than you expected.

Test drive a Macintosh.You may ride away on a Honda Scooter.

Stop by to see the Macintosh at the
Fall Computer Kick-off Hands-on Seminar
at the Michigan Union on September 13.
