over ylaw vote

Roach cited a section of the bylaw
which says the University "shall
exert its leadership for the
achievement of (non-discrimination)
by all parties with which the
University transacts business, which
it recognizes, or with which students
and employees of the University are
But Kurtz said the bylaw "doesn't
say what that leadership means... it
definitely does not state that (the
University) will not deal with these
' Kurtz added that the University
allows the ROTC to operate on
ctmpus in spite of the fact that it
rbstricts membership on the basis of
sex and physical handicap.
'" Roach also said he opposed the
amendment out of concern that it
would force the University to give
preference to gays in admissions as
part of its affirmative action policy.
Kurtz said the bylaw does not
directly mention affirmative action
and that giving preference to gays
would not be necessary, because gay
students are well-represented on
Waters was the only regent to
abstain from voting on the proposed
Following the vote on the bylaw
change, the regents voted to endorse
former University President Harold
Shapiro's 1984 policy statement on
Shapiro's statement says sexual
orientation has "no connection with
academic abilities and job
performance" and should be treated
the same as other "irrelevant" factors
such as race, religion and sex.
Fleming asked for the
endorsement because he said he
would be uneasy instituting the
policy statement without a formal
endorsement by the regents.

Levin said Mohammed Abu

Shaqra, and Khalil Quqa were al-

the army shows the Supreme Court
its reasons for ordering them deport-
Such injunctions are common,
and are usually overturned once the
army's case has been heard. But Fe-
licia Langer, the Palestinians' law-
yer, said this time the government
might bow to international pressure
and rescind the deportations.
The military originally ordered
out four Palestinians from Gaza and
five from the West Bank. Four West
Bankers were deported to Lebanon
after refusing to appeal their cases.
The fifth is awaiting a military tri-
The U.N. Security Council de-
nounced the deportations and the
United States expressed regret.
According to U.N. figures, 36
Palestinians have been shot dead
since the protests began Dec. 8 in
the territories Israel captured in the
1967 Middle East war.
Last week, the army adopted a
new tactic of economic siege by
putting all eight Gaza refugee camps
and six of the 15 in the West Bank
under at least partial curfew, pre-
venting Arabs from going to work.
"People are starving. They have
no food, no water, no milk," said a
Palestinian teacher named Fatma.
The United Nations Relief and
Works Agency, which administers
the camps, said curfews have been
lifted at random, making it difficult
to coordinate the flow of U.N. sup-
plies into the camps.
"The way we perceive it, the
people are not starving, but they are
hungry," said the agency's acting di-
rector in Gaza, Angela Williams.

who commands the Bureij refugee

efforts in these regards."
Members of the United Coalition
Against Racism (UCAR), which last
week called some of Steiner's
speeches and essays racist, yesterday
expressed disappointment in Flem-
ing's statement, as well as his refusal
to fire Steiner.
"We're all really upset," said
UCAR steering committee member
Pam Nadasen, "I -don't think that
students are going to let it rest where
it stands now," she said.
"We're not accepting this as the
definitive statement about what the
University intends to do about this
situation," said Dan Holliman, an-
other steering committee member.
The regents unanimously sup-
ported Fleming, although several
were more critical of Steiner's con-
Regent James Waters (D-
Muskegon) said yesterday, "I thought
(Steiner) should at least be repri-
manded, no matter his intentions. I
don't think you should have a dean
making any statement that's even
subject to that kind of interpreta-
tion." Waters added, however, that he
would support Fleming's decisions
in the matter.
Regent Nellie Varner (D-Detroit)
said, "The whole issue of why Blacks
are not getting advances in higher
education is certainly much broader

Many Haitians ignore election
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - Most Haitians stayed away from the
polls yesterday in an election run by the military-led junta, which was
boycotted by the opposition and marked by fear, confusion, and bribery.
"I'm not going to vote because the election doesn't meet our
aspirations," said a young man standing in a group of about 20 near two
polling stations. None intended to vote.
"The winner has already been decided," he said, laughing nervously and
edging back toward an alley as an armored personnel carrier rumbled past.
"We don't know who, but the army does."
Most people stayed home out of fear of violence. Streets near polling
stations were obstructed by soldiers who set up barriers of boulders,
sandbags, 50-gallon drums and overturned wooden vendors' carts.
Argentine troops corner rebels
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - The army yesterday began
surrounding a northeastern garrison where a rebel lieutenant colonel and
about 100 sympathizers dug in, officials said.
Officials denied reports that the rebellion led by Lt. Col. Aldo Rico
was spreading. Rico had escaped from house arrest in the capital on
Gov. Ricardo Leconte of Corrientes Province told President Raul
Alfonsin by telephone that the rebel soldiers blackened their faces with
grease paint and took up battle positions in "machine gun nests" inside
Infantry Regiment 4. The garrison is in Monte Caseros, 325 miles north
of the capital and near the Uruguay border.
Rico is charged with rebellion in a soldier uprising he led in April last
Dems. debate Social Security
AMHERST, N.H. - Jesse Jackson blasted fellow Democratic
presidential candidates yesterday for Social Security proposals he said
would leave the nation "divided and destroyed" while Republican Bob
Dole accused two opponents of "just saying no to everything."
Fresh from a pair of weekend debates, presidential candidates from both
parties renewed the arguments sharpened in those televised confrontations
in Iowa and New Hampshire.
The politically sensitive subject of Social Security continued to
provide the brightest rhetorical sparks.
Gary Hart triggered a new round of debate among Democrats with a
call for taxing 85 percent of Social Security benefits for those who make
more than $32,000 a year.
Jackson rejected the idea, saying it would undermine the universal
nature of the Social Security system.
Philippine elections feature
wide variety of candidates
MANILA, Philippine - Alleged coup plotters, anti-communist
zealots, and an assortment of film stars and.beauty queens are among the
candidates adding a colorful, sometimes bizarre twist to today's regional
Voters will be choosing about 1,600 governors, mayors, and council
members from among a field of about 160,000 candidates in what the
government touts as restoring the "final stage of democracy" after the
February, 1986 ouster of President Ferdinand Marcos.
Eleven months ago, voters ratified a new constitution replacing one
that concentrated power with Marcos. They returned to the polls in May
to elect a U.S.-style Congress. Today's balloting sets the stage for new
power blocs to compete for the presidency in 1992.
Libels, with extra player, beat
unknown opponent, 73-71
Coming off a disappointing forfeit last week, the Daily Libels won
their first intramural contest yesterday, 73-71.
Sure, the other team only had four players to the Libels' five, but
they were good players. They were tall. They were strong. We weren't .
Besides, they knew the rules.
We don't even know who we played.
But forget those minor shortcomings. We won.
In fact, we won, even though we didn't know how to keep score.
How, you may ask, did the other team score 71 points when baskets were
worth either two or four points? Because we cheated, probably.
Anyway, we played pretty well. Sports staffer Julie Hollman keyed
the Libels' come-from-behind attack, scoring about four baskets in a row.
We would print the exact number, but again, we had no clue as to how to
How could anyone keep score, though? The rules were nuts. Only
females were allowed under the basket. Thus, men could not rebound,
drive, or do anything except bomb from the outside. Which we did. And
But we won.
