SACUA 's stance against CIA
protest draws mixed reactions

A faculty group's statement
Monday condemning the methods
used by anti-CIA protesters at a
recruitment session last week drew
mixed reactions yesterday.
While student groups objected to
the statement primarily out o f
concern about the CIA, several
administrators supported it on the
grounds that a student's rights to
interview should be protected.
The statement, unanimously ap-
proved by the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs
said the group, "oppose[s] activities
on campus which substantially
interfere with the legitimate rights of
other students," but "recognizes and
supports the right of people to
protest the activities of those with
whom they disagree."
PROTESTERS disrupted job
interviews for the CIA at the Law

rooms where the interviews were
taking place and refused to leave. Six

Zoo officials defend
Chinese panda funds

DETROIT (AP) - Allegations
that the Chinese government is col-
lecting more donations from U.S.
zoos than it is using to protect en-
dangered giant pandas are baseless,
according to one zoo, where a
spokesperson said yesterday that
officials have seen the money in ac-
Georgeanne Irvine, a spokesper-
son for the San Diego Zoo, which

hosted a pair of pandas for six
months, said money given by the
zoo to the Chinese went to panda
conservation efforts.
Others are not convinced. The
World. Wildlife Fund has asked the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to
ban permits for panda loans, in part
over concerns that money donated by
zoos that have hosted pandas is being
used improperly by the Chinese.

CIA recruitment sessions in the
CP&P office 'the past several years
have met with vocal protests
although few interviews have been
cancelled as a result.
Law School Dean Lee Bollinger
said he favored the statement because
"nobody here wishes to condone the
violation of the rules we have."
However, "it is very important to
not let the improper methods detract
from the issues."
PSYCHOLOGY Prof. William.
Stebbins, a former chair of SACUA,
said, "There's a tension over how far
you can go" in protest. This,
however, can lead to a "grey area"
that brings out the question, "how
do you decide, and who decides, who
has gone too far?" he said.
Current SACUA Chair Harris
McClamroch said the group is not
taking a new direction just because a
statement was approved in one day.
P H IL O SPHY Prof. Peter
Railton, chair of the Civil Liberties
Board, said while the University has
an interest in maintaining order at
job interviews, they are "a privilege,
not a right.... It's misleading to
formulate the issue as a right to free,
unrestricted interviews.
"Whether we condemn it or not,
we should be clear as to what part is
objectionable," Railton said.
Director of Public Safety Leo
Heatley said he was out of town
when the protests took place and was
not familiar with the statement. He
would not comment further.

decision and has allowed the debate to
stagnate without producing results.
Council co-chairs, Prof. Shaw
Livermore and LSA senior David
Newblatt, said they have received no
word from Fleming on reconvening
the council, which has met only once
since October. Both also said they
had not been asked for input in
revising the first draft.
FLEMING'S new draft detailed
academic sanctions - disciplinary
warnings, reprimands, community
service, mandatory class attendance,
suspension, and expulsion - for
students judged guilty by a hearing

The Vice President of Student
Services, however, would have the
final say in reviewing cases and
The revised draft divided the list of
prohibited behavior into three parts.
At public places like the Diag or The
Daily, he said, "The broadest range of
speech and expression will be
tolerated in these areas." In areas such
as libraries, classrooms, and study
centers, sexual or discriminatory}
harassment which interferes with "an
individual's academic efforts" would
be punished. Finally, he said, the

current housing policies allow for;
expulsion from residence halls.
The hearing panel, and then the
Vice President for Student Services
would make the final decisions on
the "alleged violation and theI
appropriate sanction," Fleming

The departure of the Danish News
Co. adult book store last week from
its N. Fourth St. location was
welcomed by its former business
neighbors. But residents on S.
Ashley St., where the store may
move, said they were worried the
quality of their neighborhood would;
be hurt.
The city and the Danish News
Co. adult book store have been
involved in a court battle the past
six years over whether it should be
allowed to stay at its N. Fourth St.
location. But the store's eviction last
Thursday was for a simpler reason.
J. D. Hall, owner of the building
located at 209 N. Fourth St., said he
evicted the Danish News Co. owner,
Terry Whitman, because he paid his
rent inconsistently. According to a+
civil suit which Hall recently won,
Whitman had accumulated a $9600
debt over the past two years.
Whitman is appealing the decision.
WHITMAN has been
unavailable for comment.
Liz Glynn, an employee at the
Wildflower Bakery located across the
street from the Danish News Co's
old location, said she was glad to see
it go, "Erotica is okay but not when
it portrays violence against women."
She said the store contained
numerous books that portrayed
women being tied or hung and raped.
DAN Calderon, a n o t h e r
employee of the bakery, echoed the
opinions of many when he said the
book store should have the

constitutional right to exist. "But
I'm your typical hypocrite. I don't
want it in my back yard," he said.
Julie Steiner, director of the
University's Sexual Assault
Prevention and Awareness Center,
said adult book stores should not be
banned, but people should "look at
and separate what or how people
should act in real life."
She said that much pornography
