Dukakis maintains lead into Puerto Rico TN H R TFF


By the Associated Press
Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis re-
mained the leader of the Democratic presidential
pack as the dust settled on more delegate-count-
ing in Kansas, Texas, and South Dakota.
Meanwhile, Puerto Rico was holding Repub-
lican and Democratic presidential primaries yes-
terday, with Vice President George Bush poised
to sweep the winner-take-all GOP contest.
The Democratic race in Puerto Rico hinged-far
more on local issues than the candidates. The
U.S. commonwealth sends 14 delegates to the
Republican National Convention and 53 dele-
gates to the Democratic National Convention,
with the Democratic delegation expected to go as
uncommitted and vote as a bloc.
Bob Dole, fighting for the survival of his Re-
publican presidential hid, was in Wisconsin
campaigning for the state's April 5 primary. The
Kansas senator, who has suffered a series of

crushing losses to Bush, has pledged to keep his
faltering campaign alive at least until that con-
Dole, who was gravely wounded in World War
II, was making a visit to a veterans hospital in
Milwaukee yesterday.
A poll published in the Milwaukee Journal
suggested Bush held a commanding lead in Wis-
consin. The survey of likely Republican voters,
with a 6-point margin of error, said 69 percent
backed Bush while 25 percent supported Dole.
Pat Robertson trailed with 6 percent.
On the Democratic side, Dukakis led in Wis-
consin with 38 percent, with Jackson at 30 per-
cent, the Journal survey indicated. The other three
Democrats were closely clustered: Rep. Richard
Gephardt, 11 percent: Sen. Paul Simon, 11 per-
cent and Tennessee Sen. Albert Gore Jr., 10 per-
cent. The Democratic survey had a margin of er-
ror of 5 percentage points.

Dukakis, at a Boston breakfast yesterday, was
upbeat after his victory a day earlier in the
Kansas Democratic caucuses, joking that he was
"just a simple farm boy from Brookline."
Although he was edged out by Gephardt in
delegates counted Saturday in South Dakota and
by Jackson in Texas delegates counted counted
the same day, Dukakis remained ahead in national
The South Dakota totals were in line with last
month's primary, which Gephardt won. Texas
had already allocated the bulk of its delegates on
Super Tuesday, with the Saturday figures from
county conventions and caucuses.
The latest AP delegate count gave Dukakis
575.5 delegated to 510.55 for Jackson and 362,8
for Gore. Simon had 171.5. Gephardt had 154
and 289.65 were uncommitted. To nominate,
2,082 delegates are needed.

'U' librarians collect literature on discrimination

The best way to combat misin-
formation about racism and sexism
is education, faculty members agree,
and a group of librarians has been
collecting provocative literature to
facilitate this learning process.
Last fall, at a Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs
retreat on diversity, faculty members
charged the librarians with gathering
the information. Now, with about
250 articles on racism, sexism, and
other discriminatory behavior com-
piled on a database in the Graduate
Library, the librarians will publicize

the bibliography as a public re-
Wendy Lougee, director of the
Graduate Library and a SACUA
member, said the goal of the project
is to "identify a body of literature
that would be of interest to the cam-
pus... articles that make you think."
LOUGEE said the librarians are
taking a "liberal scope" in reviewing
periodicals for sources, but she said,
"I'm sure we're not getting every-
thing" because the Graduate Library
receives about 1,200 new books and
400 periodicals weekly.
Deborah Stansbury, one of two

librarians who gathers the literature,
said they look for "current things"
that are long but not scholarly, and
they usually look in fairly common
periodicals. One common source for
articles is the Chronicle of Higher
The future plans for the bibliog-
raphy are unclear. "We'll (compile)
it as long as the campus has an in-
terest," Lougee said. She will dis-
cuss the bibliography at today's fac-
ulty Senate Assembly meeting.
Other SACUA members have con-
sidered printing a list of sources in
the University Record.

MARK SANDLER, a librar-
ian involved with the project, sug-
gested storing the bibliography on
MTS, to make it accessible to any-
one using a computer. He said MTS
would be easier for the person seek-
ing such a body of literature, but a
published listing would be available
to more people.
A master list is kept and updated
in the library, and faculty members
can request articles to be delivered to
them. Sandler said, "We're certainly
willing to go the second step and
find the in-depth literature" for any-
one who asks.

with the fact that a policy was pro
Black Student Union could not be
reached for comment yesterday.
Though the group has not supported
Fleming's discriminatory acts pol-
icy, they have supported the princi-
ple of a policy. BSU leaders have
criticized Fleming's policy for not
allowing sufficient input from stu-
dents, in particular, minorities.
But several students reacted more
angrily to the regents' vote. Former

Student Rights Committee Chair
and law student Eric Schnaufer, a
long time code opponent, said peo-
ple are considering building
takeovers, student organization, and
"agitation," including picketing,
protesting, and lobbying.
Over the weekend, fliers criticiz-
ing the vote and calling the policy "a
bid to divide students fighting dis-
crimination and students fighting for
student rights in general," were
posted around campus.

racists are free to come out of the
cracks, wherever they are," Davis
She said people active in the
struggles against racism, sexism,
and homophobia, among other types
of discrimination, must be willing
to help one another because of the
relatedness of their causes.
"No one of us who is oppressed
should be willing to climb out of
our oppression on the shoulders of
our sisters and brothers," she said.
Active in the civil rights move-
ment in the late '60s and early '70s,
Davis was placed on the FBI's Ten
Most Wanted list in 1970 for an al-
leged involvement in an armed attack
at the Marin County Courthouse in
California. She was later acquitted.
DAVIS is °a member of the

American Communist party - an
affiliation for which she was fired
from the University of California-
Los Angeles in 1970 - and has
twice run for vice president on that
party's ticket. She currently teaches
philosophy at San Francisco State
The United Coalition Against
Racism (UCAR), the Michigan
Student Assembly, the Women's
Studies Program, the Center for
Afro-American Studies, the Sexual
Assault Prevention and Awareness
Center, and the Office of Minority
Affairs sponsored the lecture.

Compiled from Associated Press reports
British ignored IRA danger
BELFAST, Northern Ireland - Two British soldiers who were killed
in a brutal attack by an angry mob ignored orders to stay away from an
Irish Republican Army funeral procession, the British army said
All soldiers in the British-ruled province were told the funeral was
taking place on Saturday and had been warned to steer clear, an army
spokesperson said. He said the army had begun an investigation.
"The two corporals should not have been where they were and we are
interested in examining how that came about," said the spokesperson,
speaking anonymously in keeping with British custom.
Col. Derek Wood, 24, and Col. David Howes, 23, were shot dead in
Belfast on Saturday after funeral mourners grabbed from their unmarked
car, beat them unconscious and stripped them naked.
U. S. troops practice military
maneuvers near Nicaragua
TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras - American soldiers practiced military
maneuvers yesterday on a Honduran airstrip just 21 miles from the
Nicaraguan border, but U.S. officials said the threat from Sandinista
troops had subsided and combat appeared unlikely.
Nicaragua formally protested a Honduran bombing raid on Sandinista
positions Saturday as an unwarranted act of aggression. It has denied that
its troops crossed the jungle-choked border dividing the nations.
U.S. officials in Washington said the Sandinistas appeared to be
drawing back from the Honduran border and predicted that the training
exercised involving 3,200 soon would end.
Rebels obstruct Salvador vote
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador - Salvadorans vowing not to be
intimidated by guerrilla threats voted yesterday in legislative and
municipal elections after explosions ripped through the capital and
sabotage knocked out power to much of the nation.
Early turnout was moderate, without long lines at polling places in the
capital. There were some organizational difficulties, including late
delivery of ballot boxes to some voting stations and arguments over the
placement of party observers at tables where registrations were checked.
The entire capital was without electricity after leftists guerrillas blew
up transmission towers outside the city. The outage meant that virtually
no one in the city had running water, as the state-owned utility's pumps
run on electricity.
The outage knocked almost all radio stations off the air.
Simon visits as caucus nears
DETROIT - Four presidential hopefuls kicked off the final week
before the Michigan Democratic caucuses with a round of Reagan bashing
and appeals for support, including a state wide visit yesterday by Sen.
Paul Simon.
Simon branched out across Michigan, visiting Detroit, Marquette,
Traverse City and a nursing home in Grand Rapids,
Simon met several residents of the Luther nursing home in Grand
Rapids, including Hausene Baldwin, who turned 100 Tuesday. Asked if
she was excited about meeting a presidential candidate, Mrs. Baldwin said:
"Not really, I've met quite a few people in my time."
Vowing to stay in the race until the Democratic National Convention
in Atlanta in July, the Illinois senator said he hoped to pick up some
delegated during Saturday's Michigan caucuses.
Doctors: many in N. Carolina
swallow their toothbrushes
CHICAGO (AP) - Many have brushed, but only a few have
So say researchers who scrutinized medical literature and found exactly
31 cases in all recorded history of people somehow managing to swallow
their toothbrushes.
Four of these incidents occurred in Durham, N.C., in recent years. Dr.
Allan D. Kirk of Duke University Medical Center and colleagues reported
inthe March issue of the Archives of Surgery.
Two of the Northern Carolina swallowers apparantly had drunk a large
quantity of alcohol.
Despite the unsuual cluster in Durham, "This problem should
probably not be considered epidemic to this part of North Carolina," the
researchers wrote.
