Pollack criticizes Pursell's vote IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press reports
Several students, including LSA senior
Debbie Buchholtz, state chairperson of College
Republicans, were happy about Pursell's vote
but were dissatisfied with the outcome.
Buchholtz said, "I am very happy with his vote. I
and several other college Republicans have been
lobbying in favor of this Contra aid proposal."
But the negative outcome will make "the
Contras have a tough time existing", Buchholtz
said. "I want to aid them because without it they
have no support to push for democratization of
Seth Klukoff, an LSA senior and editor of the
Michigan Review was also pleased with the way
Carl Pursell voted. "I'm glad he stuck to his
principles and did not back down to local
pressures for certain groups," Klukoff said.
However, a Democratic candidate for Pursell's
seat in November's elections and several
University students criticized his stance.
State Sen. Lana Pollack (D-Ann Arbor) said
of Pursell, "He clearly put the interest of the
Administration over the interests of the country
and the district. The U.S. has neither the right
nor the interest in supporting the war in
Rackham graduate student Dean Baker, who
unsuccesfully ran for Pursell's seat in 1986, was
unavailable for comment. Baker has participated
in protests against Pursell's support for the

vying for their party's nomination to run against
A spokesperson for Pursell yesterday refused
Thea Lee, a member of the Latin American
Solidarity Committee and a Rackham graduate
student, stresses that" it's a tremendous victory
for us that Contra aid was defeated. We were
obviously disappointed that Pursell chose to
continue funding the Contras."
"Right now Pursell should commit himself to
seeing that this time the law is enforced and that
no illegal aid is channeled to the Contras through
the U.S. government," she said.

;JAP ' sexist
,Continued from Page 1)
Spencer said most students told
him that being a "JAP" had nothing
to do with being Jewish. But when
he asked them to rank the dorms or
sorority/fraternity houses in order of
"JAPpiness", students consistantly
ranked the dorm or sorority/fraternity
with the highest Jewish population
as number one.
When he asked students where to
find a "JAP", they told him "JAP
havens", or places where "JAPS"
supposedly hung out. Spencer also
described "anti-JAP zones" on the
Syracuse campus where you are not
supposed go if you are a "JAP"
because you may be harassed. One of
these "zones" was a retaining wall
where students would sit and study
- the words "ANTI-JAP ZONE"
were sprayed across the face of the
wall and swastikas were painted on
Spencer stressed that "JAP" is a
sexist and ethic slur that could lead
to violence against people who were
perceived as "JAPS". He cited
cartoons that had been published in
the student newspaper depicting
"JAPS" being obnoxious and then
He ended his talk by saying, "We
have just opened up the door on this
issue. If someone calls you a 'JAP',
tell them you are offended.

WJJX was a "marginal activity."
"Our listenership is not limited.
If it is, it's because our audience is

we're AM and carrier current."

Panel says AIDS victims have
obligation to warn partners
LANSING - AIDS victims who fail to tell their sexual partners they
have the deadly disease would face felony charges under one of 41 recom-
mendations yesterday from a House Republican task force.
The panel stopped short of calling for mandatory AIDS testing for the
general public but said the state must do more to protect healthy people
from the estimated 15,000 to 20,000 people in Michigan infected with
the AIDS virus.
The panel said AIDS carriers have a legal obligation to warn sexual
partners they have a good chance of contracting the disease. But as long as
they're up front about the virus, the state shouldn't try to prevent them
from having sex, the Republican lawmakers said.
The panel also suggested doctors and local health clinics be required to
report the names of anyone who has been diagnosed as carrying the AIDS
Violence continues in Israel
JERUSALEM - Palestinian protesters set fire to a bus and an Israeli
civilian shot and wounded an Arab stone-thrower in clashes in the West
Arab youths halted a bus carrying Palestinian workers to jobs in Is-
rael, removed the workers and driver and set the vehicle ablaze near
Qalqilya, the army spokesperson said.
The army said another Palestinian was wounded when Arab demon-
strators in the village of Sair smashed the windshield of a civilian car, and
an Israeli suffered head cuts from shattered glass. A passenger in the same
car got out and fired at demonstrators, wounding one, the army said.
Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir toured two Gaza Strip refugee camps
and vowed to improve living conditions in the squalid areas, which have
been a spawning ground for recent violence.
State to form garbage plan
LANSING - Gov. James Blanchard and key state officials launched a
joint effort yesterday to develop a strategy to solve Michigan's worsening
solid waste problem and make 1988, "The Year of Garbage."
"Unless we act now, Michigan's solid waste problem could resemble
the crisis in other areas," said Gordon Guyer, director of the State De-
partment of Natural Resources.
"I just can't indicate to you how pleased I am," Guyer said of the at-
tention being focused on the problem this year.
Sen. Vernon Ehlers (R-Grand Rapids), said that last year the state had
moved to address the problems of hazardous waste and low-level radioac-
tive waste and this was the year to tackle the solid waste issue.,
"By acting now, we can head off a future in which garbage barges float
across the Great Lakes in a futile search for disposal sites," said Blan-
Hospitals increase patient stays
CHICAGO - Hospitals with the most competition have been most
likely to let surgical patients stay longer, boosting America's "medical
arms race" and adding to high costs, a study has found.
Doctors and patients prefer longer stays for major surgical procedures,
to ensure adequate preparation before an operation, adequate recovery af-
terward, and to reduce the nursing burden on family members, the study
But researchers who studied 1982 data on almost 500,000 patients were
unable to find medical reasons for longer surgical stays at high-competi-
.tion hospitals, they said in today's Journal of the American Medical As-
No Wheaties for the losers
DENVER (AP) - When you lose a Super Bowl, you lose a chance to
have your picture on breakfast tables across the land.
About 12,000 boxes of Wheaties portraying the Denver Broncos as
cover boys for the "Breakfast of Champions" have been donated to a
California food bank, said officials of General Mills, which manufactures
the breakfast cereal.
General Mills released boxes featuring the Washington Redskins on
Sunday after they beat Denver 42-10 for the NFL championship.
Company executives, in ceremonies Wednesday at the office of Mayor
Frederico Pena, said they donated the boxes to the food bank on behalf of
the Broncos and their fans.
They also presented Mayor Pena with a mockup of a Wheaties box
bearing his picture.
