Complaint filed over profanity on WCBN IN BRIEF
be the key point in triggering the
investigation. Board of Directors
member Fred Remley concurred,
saying that, to the FCC, "the matter
of alcohol is probably a lot more
important than scatological
The letter of complaint, written
by a Midland resident who heard the
broadcast when driving through Ann
Arbor, expressed concern ,over the
appropriateness of broadcasting the
song. Burgard, in her note, said that
"the song was prefaced by a
disclaimer saying that it contains
potentially offensive language."
The song contains a mixture of
John Lennon quotes, WCBN non-
student disc jockey Arwulf Arwulf
said. "I was surprised it was being
aired," Arwulf said. "I've never
played it, not because of the
profanity, but because it makes fun
of John Lennon."
"It'actually is pretty funny, then
you remember he's dead and it's not
so funny," Arwulf said.
Discussion of the song, which
continued past the 3-hour mark in
the meeting, was not completed
In other items, the Board agreed
that the executive committee of
WCBN would review the firing of
Chris Daley, who was dismissed in
December for airing the song "Run,
Nigger, Run." If the committee
decides that Daley should be rehired,
he may petition the Board to return
to the network as a non-student disc
The move to review the firing
came after a few attendees at the
meeting and Board members
expressed concern that Daley was
"Chris was screwed..." said non-
student disc jockey Joe Tiboni. "It
was made out like he was a racist or
an idiot," said Tiboni, who said
Daley should be given his slot back,
and WCBN should apologize to
Daley for their handling of his case.
Some meeting attendants claimed
that the station was pressured by the
University into firing Daley. "I don't
intend to let this rest, because it sets
a precedent for how we deal with
people who make mistakes," said
program director Jeanne Gilliland.

BETHLEHEM, Occupied West Bank - Israeli soldiers shot and
wounded six Palestinians, and Arabs with slingshots, stones, and marbles
injuredfive Israelis in battles yesterday in the West Bank, witnesses and
Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir rebuffed a call from Egyptian
President Hosni Mubarak for a six-month freeze on Jewish settlements in
the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip as a prelude to peace talks.
Asked what advice he would give to Jewish settlers to deal with the
unrest, Shamir said: "Be strong." Asked what he would advise
Palestinians, Shamir said: "Be quiet."
At least 42 Arabs have been killed since clashes broke out Dec. 8.
The latest death occurred Tuesday night when a 24-year-old Arab woman
shot in the head died of her injuries.
Chair calls for change in
agency to regulate markets
WASHINGTON - The chair of the Securities and Exchange
Commission said yesterday his own agency - not the Federal Reserve
Board - should have the lead role in regulating the nation's financial
David Ruder, testifying before the Senate Banking Committee, rejected
a key recommendation of the presidential task force headed by former New
Jersey Sen. Nicholas Brady.
"The Federal Reserve lacks the necessary expertise regarding both
equity and futures markets," Ruder said during the second of four hearings
by the committee on the Oct. 19 stock market plunge.
Brady, who appeared before the panel Tuesday, argued that the
explosion of computer technology has inextricably linked the stock
markets, regulated by the SEC, with the futures markets, regulated by the
Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
Court rules on Baby M case
TRENTON, N.J. - Paying a woman to have a baby amounts to
illegal baby-selling, the state Supreme Court ruled yesterday in the
landmark Baby M case. But the toddler will live with her father, with
visiting rights for her biological mother.
The court's 7-0 decision overruled all but the custody decision of a
lower court judge in the dispute over a surrogate agreement gone sour.
Mary Beth Whitehead-Gould bore a daughter nearly two years ago for.
William Stern and his wife, Elizabeth. She was artificially inseminated
and agreed to accept $10,000 for having the child, but when the girl was
born, she changed her mind, refused the money and fled to Florida.
Hostages pray for kidnappers
TUSCALOOSA - Staff at a private school prayed yesterday for two
jobless men, one lured from an unemployment line, being held under
$8.4 million bond each for a schoolhouse siege in which 80 youngsters
were taken captive.
Police said the men - James Harvey and John Rhodes, both
unemployed and largely strangers to each other - were charged with 84
counts of kidnapping each in the day-long siege at West End Christian
Assistant Police Chief Ken Swindle said the counts were for the 80
children and four teachers taken hostage when two armed men, wearing
ski masks, burst into the schoolhouse Tuesday morning.
Harvey, who police said lured Rhodes from an unemployment line and
masterminded the takeover, was transferred to a state mental ward
yesterday for a psychiatric examination, while Rhodes remained in jail.
Survey finds similar sexual
activity among churchgoers
WASHINGTON - Teen-agers who attend conservative churches are
similar in their sexual conduct to many of America's 17-year-olds, with
more than 40 percent of the churchgoing youths having had intercourse
by the time they reach college age, a survey says.
The "Teen Sex Survey in the Evangelical Church", released Monday,
found that 43 percent of the "churched youth" who responded to a confi-
dential, four-page questionnaire had sexual intercourse by the age of 18.
Thirty-five percent of the 17-year-olds said they had engaged in sexual
intercourse, while 26 percent of the 16-year-olds dais they had had inter-
The questionnaire was given to 1,438 young people, aged 12 to 18,
last June and August. Eight evangelical denominations conducted the sur-
vey of the churched youths, whom they describe as teen-agers who are
By comparison, a Louis Harris and Associates poll in December 1986
found that 57 percent of the nation's 17-year-olds are sexually experi-
enced, while 46 percent of the 16-year-olds are '9 percent of the 15-year-
olds said they had had sexual intercourse.
