President Reagan, returning from
a speech he delivered to an audience
of religious broadcasters, was asked
about Meese's situation. "No com-
ment. I'm not going to talk about
it," Reagan said.
"I do not recall having read the
specific words that have now mush-
roomed into importance, but I cer-
tainly did not receive from the
memorandum any impression of il-
legality whatsoever," the attorney
He added that the memorandum,
which is classified and which he re-
fused to outline in detail, "contains
no reference to bribes or payoffs."
Charles Moody and Vice President
for Academic Affairs James Duder-
Moody said the University must
send a message that it does not ap-
prove of racism. "We just can't keep
having these kinds of actions in a
climate where there are no conse-
quences for this kind of behavior,"

"It's a pity that members of an
educated community would enjoy
this kind of racist literature," said
Michael Nelson, president of the
University chapter of the National
Association for the Advancement of
Colored People. "It seems we would
be above that."
A security officer filed a report
after discovering one of the fliers in
an elevator inrthe Church Street
parking structure at 3:30 a.m., said
Bob Pifer, assistant director of the
University Department of Public
Pifer said campus security is in-
vestigating the incident and will
submit a copy of the report and the
fliers to the Ann Arbor Police.

"We can look at this as another
attempt to silence women," Cohen
said. "The system of justice will not
allow women to speak out."
"You go into the courtroom
with the work of detectives and the
prosecutor and the pain and the
words of the survivor, and it is all
thrown out the window because
some judge has an inconsistent and
suspicious definition of what is
sexual assualt," Cohen said.
"I am seriously concerned about
the verdict," said Susan McGee of
the Coalition to End Legalized Rape.
"The message to the community is
that there are no sanctions for
sexually abusive behavior for the
perpetrators. It's a totally outrageous
decision. What it says to women is
that there are no recourses when they
are sexually assualted."
McGee also commented on the
link between a rape trial last year
when defendant Griffith Neal was
acquitted, and yesterday's dismissed
sexual assualt hearing.
"I think it's an unfortunate
pattern that is developing and is
going to have to be disrupted,"

Armed Indians take hostages
LUMBERTON, N.C. - Two heavily armed American Indians who
had taken over a newspaper office yesterday to protest the death of a Black
jail inmate released their hostages after a 10-hour stand-off.
"It's over. The hostages have been released," Jim Sughrue, Gov. Jim
Martin's press secretary, said last night.
"The governor did not talk directly to him (Eddie Hatcher, one of the
two captors)," said Charles Dunn, deputy director of the State Bureau of
Investigation. "We didn't want him to do that because it would set a
precedent. The governor did agree to look into the allegations."
Police said the Indians were protesting the death in the Robeson
County Jail of Billy McCullogh because they said the death wasn't
Ray Little Turtle, a Lumbee Indian who was part of the negotiations,
said Hatcher and Timothy Jacobs had been taken into custody by FBI
agents and would be transported to a jail outside Robeson County.
Trapped Israelis attack Arabs
ANABTA, Israeli-occupied West Bank - Israelis killed two Arabs and
wounded three others yesterday when they opened fire on a crowd of stone-
throwing Palestinians who had trapped a convoy of soldiers and civilians,
the Israeli army said.
Soldiers wounded four Arabs in two other clashes, a military spokes-
person said. The Arab-owned Palestinian Press Service put the number of
Arabs wounded by gunfire at 22.
Troops battled Palestinians in protests throughout the West Bank and
Gaza Strip, leaving more than a dozen Arabs hospitalized with beating
injuries and three soldiers injured by stones.
The renewed violence caused the first deaths from gunfire since Jan. 15
and brought to 41 the confirmed Arab death toll in the rioting that began
Dec. 8. It came as the United States was exploring ways to revive the
stalled Middle East peace process.
Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin said he hoped the new U.S initiative
would lead to political negotiations, but he warned that Israel would use
force and collective punishment to quell protests.
Reagan lobbies for Contra aid
WASHINGTON - President Reagan argued yesterday that Nicaragua's
leftist leaders would not comply with a regional peace plan without a
"threat hanging over them" and that his $36.2 million Contra aid package
would do the trick.
Meanwhile, the White House scrambled to make the aid package
palatable to doubtful House members as the outcome of tomorrow's high-
stakes vote remained in the hands of some 20 fence-sitters.
"One question must be answered. Sandinista promises of the past have
been broken. Can we believe them now?" Reagan said'in a speech to the
National Religious Broadcasters.
The president's plea was part of a last-ditch lobbying drive that will
culminate today in a televised address from the Oval Office.
Jurors questioned in KKK trial
MOBILE, Ala. - Attorneys yesterday questioned potential jurors in
the murder trial of two former Ku Klux Klan leaders accused in the death
of a Black teenager who was beaten and hanged from a tree in a case that
eventually drove a Klan organization into bankruptcy.
Mobile County Circuit Judge Michael Zoghby withheld rulings on
several pre-trial motions yesterday, including a defense request to exclude
Blacks from the jury.
Bennie Jack Hays and his son-in-law, Frank Cox, were indicted in
August for the March 1981 beating death of Michael Donald, whose death
resulted in a $7 million civil verdict that led to bankruptcy for the United
Klans of America.
'Fifth force' finds feathers
faster, fuels ferocious fight
LOS ANGELES - Scientists have uncovered new evidence suggest-
ing that gravity is counteracted by a "fifth force" that would make a
feather fall ever so slightly faster than an iron ball.
"Our results are consistent with the existence of a fifth force. It's good
evidence, but not conclusive," Paul Boynton, a physicist-astronomer at
the University of Washington, said Friday.
In an experiment supposedly conducted 400 years ago, Galileo found
that when two objects of different weights were dropped from the Leaning
Tower of Pisa, both hit the ground at the same time, contrary to the
logical notion that heavier objects fall faster than lighter ones.
If a fifth force exists, it would slightly counteract gravity so a feather,
because of its atomic makeup, actually would hit the ground ever so
slightly before an iron ball if wind resistance did not slow the feather,
No one is quite sure of the practical applications for this discovery.
