Northwestern University's rules

Students have the right to protest,
she said, as long 'as it doesn't in-

MSU's policy includes a rule
against entering or staying in a
university building after the uni-
versity closes, Studer said.
-Each policy provides a due
process hearing, in which a com-
mittee of students and faculty
members judge if a student is
guilty. Most schools have an ap-
peal process, and the dean or vice
president of student affairs makes
the final decision.

of Students holds a "judicial

Brown said. "The rules are very
clear," she added. "Our system is
extremely effective, especially with
the conciliation system."

Teasley and Varchol, however,
said suspension and expulsion are
carried out depending on the accused
student's past record. "Expulsion is
seldom used," at Indiana, Varchol
said. "It depends on the severity of

have suspended students."
Suspension, said Wisconsin's

But House Speaker Gary Owen
(D-Ypsilanti) disagreed: "I thought it
was by far the governor's best State
of the State," he said. "Not only the
substance of it, but the delivery."
ENGLER DID agree,
however, that the governor's
emphasis on K-12 education is
appropriate. The state "can't afford
high dropout rates and high illiteracy
rates," Engler said.
Sederburg gave the speech "high
marks" but acknowledged that the
governor presented a limited agenda,
noting, for example, that Blanchard
m'ade no mention of new programs
for AIDS prevention.
Rep. Morris Hood (D-Detroit), a
frequent Blanchard critic, said he was
pleased with parts of the speech.
"For some reason I have a feeling
the governor has gotten the message
in terms of sensitivity on where
some of us, both Blacks and whites,
are talking about economic
development, unemployment, and
education," Hood said.
TO REACH job retraining
goals, the state would create the
"Michigan Opportunity Card"
program, which would provide
access to the state's job skills
Using a card similar to a credit
card, adults would be able to obtain
the help they need to improve their
job skills. The use of the card also
would allow state officials to track
the performance of the 50 job
training programs in various
agencies and departments and focus
resources on those that do the best
Currently, the state spends about
$500 million a year on more than 50
job training programs, and the
Opportunity Card would eventually
link them together.

Israelis may impose curfews
JERUSALEM - Israel said yesterday it might use curfews for the
first time to quell riots in Arab east Jerusalem, where a police jeep stoned
by children ran down a protester and crashed, injuring two officers.
Increasing numbers of Jerusalem's Arabs have been calght up in the
nationalist fervor generated by six weeks of violence in the occupied West
Bank and Gaza Strip, in which Israeli gunfire has killed at least 36
In northern Israel, soldiers killed three Palestinians who infiltrated
from Lebanon with grenades and automatic rifles in an apparent attempt
to raid a civilian settlement, the army said. An Israeli soldier was reported
Political sources said privately that the Cabinet, at a meeting earlier
this week, made an unannounced decision authorizing police to use
curfews in Jerusalem at their discretion and with the approval of Maj.
Gen.4mram Mitzna, head of the central military cwmmand.
Bush campaign says Robertson
supporters broke election laws
LANSING- A leader of Vice President George Bush's Michigan
campaign readied a civil complaint yesterday that claims Pat Robertson's
campaign violated state and federal election laws.
"Pat Robertson goes about the state talking about high ethics and
moral resurgence in his campaign when his very staff is engaging in what
I think are egregious, deliberate violations of Michigan campaign law. I
think he's hypocritical," said Oakland County Prosecutor L. Brooks
Patterson, one of four Bush co-chairs in Michigan.
Michigan Republicans will select the nation's first 77 presidential
delegates next week at their state convention in Grand Rapids.
Patterson said on the eve of last week's GOP county conventions
that Robertson campaign workers illegally mailed copies of a newspaper
editorial highly critical of Bush to 9,300 delegates to those meetings.
Inflation 4.4 percent in 87
WASHINGTON - Consumer inflation rose 4.4 percent in 1987 but
most of the increase came from an early rebound in-oil prices and the rise
in December was just 0.1 percent, the government said yesterday.
The 1987 increase in the Labor Department's Consumer Price Index,
the steepest pace in six years but considered moderate by most
economists, was four times 1986's tiny 1.1 percent rise. It compared with
a 3.8 percent increase in 1985 and a 4 percent rise in 1984.
Meanwhile, the Commerce Department said housing starts plunged
16.2 percent in December, the steepest decline in more than three years,
dragging down housing construction for the year to 1.62 million units,
the poorest showing since the recession year of 1982.
Reagan asks for Contra aid
WASHINGTON - President Reagan said yesterday that Congress
will commit "one of America's most tragic mistakes" if it refuses to give
more money to the Nicaragnan rebels.
House speaker Jim Wright (D- Texas) accused Reagan of pursuing a
military victory and the overthrow of the Sandinista regime.
There was a sharpening of rhetoric on both sides as supporters and
opponents of rebel aid tried to marshal forces for a showdown vote next
month that will sustain the Contra force or effectively put it out of
The White House angrily rebutted charges that the administration was
trying to sabotage the peace process in Central America.
Fifth-graders protest plastic
forks, demand return to steel
GREENFIELD, Mass. - Fifth graders upset over plastic forks and
spoons in the cafeteria are demanding a return to stainless steel, and their
principal said they should protest with posters and petitions "as long as
they had everything spelled correctly."
The campaign, dubbed "The Great Plastic Fork Revolution" by one
father, began a few weeks ago when students at the Four Corners
Elementary School discovered their stainless steel tableware had been
shipped to the high school for use by what one youngster called "ugh,
In the place of the stainless steel were blue-gray forks and spoons made
of reusable of hard plastic.
Christopher Peters, 11 described the new tableware as "bumpy, thick,
hard to hold ... and eating with them makes you feel weird all over."
Using non-violent tactics they studied for the Martin Luther King Jr.
observance, Chris and his classmates hung the cafeteria with posters
reading "School Is No Picnic" and "Real People Deserve Real
