Campus groups to debate code

iterate its opposition to Interim University

an open forum being held tonight to receive the
University community's comments on the pro-

ministrators, faculty, and students will discuss
Fleming's proposal during the first half of the
forum, and the alternative proposal - which
has not been reviewed by MSA - will be dis-

The only panel participants named at press
time were MSA's Student Rights Committee

Although the University has debated a code
inconclusively for more than four years the

Bell said. "It's the first public and rational sit-

on campus and how they can be solved.
"The University Council was dealing with a

harassment problems to be dealt with here,"

had had his fill of the election
Jackson, however, wasn't the only
crisis the Democratic party faced in
1984. Former Vice President Walter
Mondale gained the nomination by
riding tremendous support from
special interest groups throughout
the nation. While groups such as
organized labor, the National Or-
ganization of Women, and various
pro-choice coalitions gave Mondale
the nomination, they also doomed.
him to lose the national election -
many voters felt Mondale owed too
much to these organizations to
govern for the population at large.
Now in the '88 campaign, while
most of the Democratic field is
carefully distancing themselves from
special interest groups, Jackson is
OVER THE past four years,
Jackson has refined his message and
carried it to disenfranchised groups
which haven't found satisfaction with
the other candidates. He has inspired
labor groups by fighting to maintain
manufacturing jobs and impressed
farmers by fighting to halt farm
He has also impressed some by
venturing into territories where
politicians usually fear to tread. One
supporter here said she is working for
Jackson because, "He is the first
person out in public to have the balls
to say the word 'gay'."
Moreover, while reaching out to
homosexuals, Socialists, and the
disabled, Jackson has become a
respected party member. He has tried
to make amends to the Jewish
community by placing Jews in high
positions in his organization and
taking a moderate stand on the Is-
By keeping interest groups
involved in the Democratic Party,
Jackson has served the entire party.
By giving special interest groups
their support, the Democrats gain
votes, and the nominee gains support
without directly aligning himself
with any special interest.
BUT NOT everything is rosy
with the Jackson campaign.
Jackson's open arm policy has driven
many who would be inclined to vote
for a reverend to former television
evangelist Pat Robertson.
Eva Young, a Black Baptist who
supports Robertson, said in an
interview here she couldn't vote for
Jackson after he spoke out at the
October Gay March on Washington
D.C. She said, "A sin's a sin;
Jackson's trying to straddle the fence
between Christianity and politics."
Also, while Jackson's support
now includes many whites, many
middle-class Blacks are choosing
among the other candidates. Henry
Thomas, a Black supporter, of
Democratic candidate Michael
Dukakis, said, "We're at that stage as
a Black community where we're
more sophisticated. A monolithic
approach is no longer best. If Jesse
doesn't make it, we need someone we
can trust. Dukakis is in the best
position to win."
DETROIT Mayor Coleman
Young has taken a similar stance.
His press secretary said last month,
"The mayor likes Jesse, but he would
feel uncomfortable supporting him
unless he got the feeling Jesse could
Even Jackson supporters don't
give the candidate much chance of
winning, but his charisma and energy
have kept the primaries interesting.
More importantly, he has found a
place for himself in the party without
giving up his ideals.
He occupies a paradox - a
candidate who can't win but has
influence throughout the nation
among a growing base of supporters.

Violence leads to 'collapse'
of Arab-Israeli coexistence
JERUSALEM - Israeli troops shot and killed three Palestinians
yesterday and hospital officials said at least 25 others were wounded.
Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kollek declared that "coexistence between Jews
and Arabs has collapsed."
Widespread demonstrations rocked the occupied territories of the West
Bank and the Gaza Strip in one of the worst days of bloodshed since the
protests began Dec. 8. Jerusalem also suffered as Arab activists cut a
water main, leaving several neighborhoods dry.
Two other Arabs - a 15-year-old boy hit in the head by a soldier
Saturday and a 10-year-old boy struck by a bullet last week - died of
injuries suffered earlier and dozens more were hospitalized after they were
beaten and teargassed by Israeli troops.
Survey says workers fear AIDS
ATLANTA - In spite of medical assurances, a significant number of
workers are afraid of catching AIDS from sharing job equipment,
restrooms and caferterias with victims of the deadly disease, according to a
That suggests worries about AIDS could conflict with legal decisions
that protect victims' rights to keep working, said David Herold, director
of the Center for Work Performance at the Georgia Institute of
"If a company can expect 35 or 40 percent of its work force to be
afraid of using the cafeteria or to refuse to share equipment, that has
serious implications," Herold said.
The survey found that 66 percent of those who responded said they
would be "concerned" about using the same restroom on the job as a
person who had acquired immune deficiency syndrome.
Fed may lower interest rates
WASHINGTON - The Federal Reserve is poised to boost the
faltering U.S. economy by pushing down interest rates. The moves are
certain to be welcomed by home buyers and. Republican presidential
Many economists believe the central bank has already set in motion
further easing moves because of the widespread belief the economy is
about to slide into a period of very weak growth.
Top Fed policy-makers who sit on the Federal Open Market
Committee will meet behind closed doors tomorrow and Wednesday to
assess current economic conditions and set monetary policy for the year.
Many analysts believe the Fed., which is dominated by President
Reagan's appointees, will put aside any possible inflation fears and err on
the side of keeping the recovery alive.
'Juliusburger' gourmet. asks
mall, 'what's the beef?'
HUTCHINSON, Kan. - A controversy over the definition of a
hamburger has a restaurant owner sizzling and an Indiana firm fanning the
flames. Now it's up to the courts to decide whose beef is legitimate.
Gary Hutchison, operator of the Orange Julius concession at the
Hutchinson Mall, says the mall's parent firm, Melvin Simon Associates,
agreed in writing to let him sell gourmet hamburgers known as
But after the initial letter of agreement, a second letter arrived at
Orange Julius' corporate offices in Santa Monica, Calif. The letter said
Hutchison was in default of his lease.
Hutchison was allowed to sell only "Orange Julius brand drinks, hot
dogs, sandwiches and other items normally sold in the Orange Julius
snack bar operation," the letter said.
"Please be advised that 'sandwiches,' does not include the sale of
'hamburgers,"' it said.
Hutchison disagrees, "How can a hamburger be anything other than a
sandwich?," he said recently.
