40 percent of students

Steve cheated on an exam. Obviously,
he is not alone. Forty percent of stu-
dents cheat, according toa recently con-
ducted Daily Illini poll, and 40 percent
also said it was easy to cheat on uni-
versity exams.
The unusual thing about Steve's case
is that he got caught. Even more un-
usual is the way in which he was disci-
plined-he was dismissed from the uni-
From the moment he got caught-
Steve declined to say exactly how that
happened-he told the truth about the
incident. He admitted it. Now, however,
Steve regrets his decision-not because
he thinks what he did was right, but
because of the way the university's Sen-
ate Committee on Student Discipline
handled the situation.
Steve said that if he was able to come
up with an alibi, there may not have
been a strong enough case against him.
"I could have said it wasn't me," he

Students protest CIA recruiting

The CIA's presence on campuses across the country disturbs many students who charge
the agency with violations of international and national law.. Above, three U. of Vermont
(UVM) security officers carry away graduate student Jay Weedan. Weeden was a
member of the "Waterman 19," a group of UVM students who occupied the president's
office in protest of the university's complicity with CIA recruiting.

Two million of us are 'ticking time bombs'

And even if you read every news-
paper, watched every television
show and picked up every pamphlet
you could find in Gainesville, you
still wouldn't know enough about
AIDS to avoid dying from it.
That's because AIDS is a virus
that thrives on sexual activities that
make many people blush. Because it
kills, it means people not only have to
hear over and over about homosex-
uality, anal sex and oral sex, but they
also must learn about them and
understand them.
It is no longer enough to know that

AIDS stands for "Acquired Immune
Deficiency Syndrome," the virus re-
sponsible for a total breakdown of
the immune system that leads to
deadly infections and rare forms of
cancer. Now anyone who wants to
avoid "The Plague of the '80s" must
study everythingfrom safer sex to IV
drug use.
Since it was "discovered" in 1980,
AIDS has killed 41,766 people in this
country. The Centers for Disease
Control in Atlanta estimate another

Student's glove
makes births safer
By Jodi Berls
Doily Cougor
U. of Houston, TX
Jagadish Sorab, a U. of Houston
mechanical engineering graduate stu-
dent, has developed a system to mea-
sure hand-applied forces with the aid of
a computer. Though still in the data
acquisition phase, this technology may
someday help doctors prevent serious
natal injuries.
In births where the baby's shoulders
lodge against the mother's pelvis, called
shoulder dystocia, doctors have about
five minutes to complete the delivery
before the baby suffocates, Sorab said.
"The immediate response is to pull
harder" to get the baby out, he said.
That response can damage the baby's
brachial nerve, which runs from the
neck down into the shoulder. Injury to
the brachial nerve can lead to paralysis,
retardation or speech defects.
