Common Sense's presidential candidate
Cheryl Tilles, an LSA junior, resigned from the
campaign and as chair of MSA's budget priorities
committee last week after she admitted to altering
dinner receipts charged to MSA.
Her name will remain on the ballot because of
the late withdrawal. If elected, she said, she
would defer her seat to the party's vice presiden-
tial candidate Ricky Nemeroff, an LSA junior.
"We've overcome it," Nemeroff said of Tilles'
resignation, "and it's brought us together as a

party. We're out there to do what our platform
THE PARTIES agree on many issues, but
disagree on the priority of the issues.
Common Sense party members say the as-
sembly must listen to "ordinary" student interests
before focusing on controversial and national is-
sues. They want to increase buses between North
and Central Campus, expand the University's
Nite Owl bus service, get more bike racks on
campus, and reduce class sizes in some LSA de-
Both parties are opposed to Interim President
Robben Fleming's code for discriminatory acts.
But Nemeroff said he would inform students
about the positive and negative parts of Flem-
ing's policy before he decides to make a state-
ment about it.
Phillips said Students First will plan on
organizing student opposition to the code when

elections are over.
STUDENTS FIRST party members want
to steer the assembly in the direction of fighting
racism, sexism, and homophobia on campus
through education. They support a mandatory
class before graduation on non-Western culture,
women's studies, or on sexism and racism. They
also expect such classes will be prepared to be
held during summer orientation.
Common Sense party members, while favor-
ing the classes during orientation, do not support
a mandatory class during the school year because
they say it would take up an unfair amount of
students' time.
Phillips, chair of MSA's student rights com-
mittee, said his party favors extending the Nite
Owl service and decreasing the size of classes
sizes. He added that current assembly representa-
tives from Students First are continuing to work
on such projects.

Noriega offers to step down
PANAMA CITY - Panamanians were told last night that the
nation's military leader, Gen. Manuel Antonio Noriega, had offered to
resign before next May's presidential election if opponents agree to talks
with his regime.
The announcement by Manuel Solis Palma, installed last month as the
minister in charge of the presidency, came as the country was paralyzed
by a general strike aimed at ousting Noriega.
In a nationally broadcast speech, Solis Palma said that Noriega had
given his word "as an officer and a gentleman" to step down if his
conditions are met.
But those conditions were not likely to be acceptable to either the
general's internal opposition or to the United States, who have been
seeking his removal for months.
Noriega put down a coup attempt by dissident officers last week and
rejected a U.S. plan for him to leave Panama and live in Spain.
Israelis kill Palestinian teen
JERUSALEM - Israeli troopers yesterday shot a Palestinian teenager
dead, and a PLO leaflet exhorted Arabs to "shower soldiers and herds of
cowardly settlers" with stones, firebombs and iron bars.
Soldiers were expanding their search for weapons caches in the
occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip the day after an Arab shot and killed a
soldier in Bethlehem.
At least 106 Palestinians and the Israeli soldier have been killed since
riots began in the occupied lands Dec. 8, according to U.N. figures.
Israeli police arrested a prominent Arab-American attorney yesterday
and assailants attacked the homes of two moderate Palestinians, a
newspaper editor, and a member of Jordan's parliament.
New poison kills cancer cells
DAYTONA BEACH - Scientists have redesigned a potent natural
poison so that it seeks out and kills cancer cells in the test tube,
signalling a possible new route for fighting some tumors, a scientist said
The poison, so strong that a dose the size of a salt grain can kill a
person, may be harnessed for fighting breast cancers that have spread
elsewhere in the body, and some lung and brain tumors, said Ira Pastan of
the National Cancer Institute.
The strategy takes advantage of the fact that some cancer cells display
on their surface certain kinds of protein structures called receptors.
Specific substances bind to each kind of receptor before they enter the
IRA kills British police officer
BELFAST, Northern Ireland - IRA gunners killed a police officer
yesterday at a checkpoint in Londonderry, the tenth victim in two weeks

Northern Ireland Secretary Tom King said in London that the Royal
Ulster Constabulary has launched an immediate review of its new policy
of keeping a low profile at Irish Republican Army funerals. The policy
was aimed at avoiding clashes between police and supporters of the
outlawed IRA.
The police officer whr was killed yesterday was shot in the head in a
jeep while at a checkpoint in the Roman Catholic Creggan district of
Londonderry, Northern Ireland's second-largest city. He died later in the

Late tax payment of $4.02
causes company close-down
WYOMING, Mich. (AP) - A misunderstanding over postal delivery
left Roger Wilson a day late and $4.02 short, causing a Wyoming tax
collector and two police officers to close his cash register sales company.
Wilson was back in business the next day, but not before he had to
pay $27 to change locks. Wilson called the incident "ridiculous" and
Mayor Charles Huizenga called it "unfortunate."
"All this for $4.02. The city of Wyoming must have a lot of money
to spend or they must be very short of it," Wilson said. "The cost of
doing this had to be phenomenal."
Wilson's short-lived tax protest began last month. He mailed his
$160 in winter business taxes in neighboring Kentwood on the due date,
Sunday, Feb. 14, thinking the Postal Service would get it to city offices
on the next business day.

Responding to criticism about his
lack of experience in Washington,
Dukakis said he is the only candidate
with experience balancing a budget.
His main fiscal concerns are bring-
ing interest rates down, creating new
revenue, and tracking down unpaid
taxes instead of raising them.
Dukakis spoke on some of the
problems facing the United States.
Although he said his highest priority
is creating "good jobs" for everyone,
Dukakis addressed the homeless
situation. "You don't have to be
from Detroit to want decent housing
for every citizen of this country or to
end the disgrace and shame of home-
lessness," he said.
Before Dukakis spoke, Represen-
tative Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor)
endorsed Dukakis as someone who
knows the importance of higher
education, saying that Massachusetts
has given out more student loans
than any other state. Earlier in the
day, Senator Donald Riegle (D-
Mich.) officially endorsed Dukakis.
