rape law
By the Associated Press
LANSING - The House voted
102-0 yesterday to remove an ex-
emption in Michigan law that al-
lows men to rape their wives and
escape prosecution.
Currently, Michigan prosecutors
can not bring rape charges against a
husband unless the wife is living in
a separate home and the couple is
legally separated or divorced.
The legislation, sponsored by
Rep. Shirley Johnson (R-Royal
Oak) will now move to the Senate,
where it appears to be headed for op-
"IT'S AN outrageous exemp-
tion," Johnson said. "It's something
that shouldn't exist. There's no so-
cial or justifiable position for con-
tinuing to allow that type of an ex-

Dole drops

out Of
By The Associated Press
Republican Sen. Bob Dole quit
the presidential race yesterday, three
weeks after being buried in George
Bush's Super Tuesday landslide,
calling himself "bloodied but un-
bowed, as the poet says."
Dole, who has been without a
primary win for more than a month,
tipped his hat to Bush.
The Kansas senator offered his
congratulations to Bush, who beat
him in a solid majority of primaries
and said, "Keeping the White House
Republican, that's the bottom line."
With eight percent of the pre-
cincts reporting in yesterday's Con-
necticut primary, Bush had 71
percent of the GOP vote to Dole's
20 percent and three percent for
Bush's nominal chal-lenger, former
TV evangelist Pat Robertson.'
Reports from 79 percent of the
Connecticut precincts showed Du-
kakis was gaining 59 pr;rcent of the
vote, ending a recent series of poor
performances. Jackson, landslide

winner last weekend in Michigan and
the man with momentum in the
race, had 28 percent.
Sen. Albert Gore trailed with
eight percent, and Sen. Paul Simon,
who ignored the state, was receiving
slightly more than 1 percent.
Connecticut's primary offered 35
delegates to the Republican National
Convention, and 52 on the Dem-
ocratic side. Bush was winning 25 to
10 for Dole on the GOP side and
Dukakis led for 36 and Jackson 16
among the Democrats.
After updating based on final
Michigan results and a redistribution
of some of Gephardt's delegates,
Dukakis held a slim seven-delegate
lead over Jackson.
Dukakis hoped his win in Con-
necticut would be solid enouh to
reassure the skeptics after his land-
slide loss to Jackson in the Mich-
igan caususes last weekend and his
third-place finish in the Illinois
primary on March 15.

Sheldon challenges
Hlrshorn in Ward 2
Ann Arbor's 2nd Ward, which contains some of the city's most af-
fluent areas, has been Republican-controlled since it was drawn up six
years ago.
But in 1986, Democrat Seth Hirshorn ousted then-Republican in-
cumbent Jim Blow, and became an exception to the rule.
Hirshorn, a professor of public administration at the University's
Dearborn campus, will seek re-election Monday for another two-year
term. If defeated by Republicans, their hopes of regaining control of
city council - where they are currently outnumbered seven to four by
Democrats - will be bolstered.
WITH THAT in mind, Republican Ingrid Sheldon, a longtime
resident of Ann Arbor who in the past has run for school boy , will try
to pose a "tough challenge" to Hirshorn.

"All work and no play makes
Jack a compulsive sociopath prone
to sudden acts of brainless violence."
These are the words by which
Theodore Grenier - better known to
the public as arwulf arwulf - lives.
"It came out of the sky one night,"
arwulf said of his unusual name, "it
just seemed like the right name at
the time.'
Truly an original, this beatnik-
jazzhead-guru, almost impossible to
characterize, describes himself as "a

MANY people know arwulf as
a DJ at WCBN, the University's
student-run, free-form radio station.

Arwulf also currently has acting
roles in two Performance Network
plays, and works six days a week at
Nielsen's flower shop.
HE SAID being a florist and DJ
is a great combination for him; first
he tries to make people happy all
day with flowers, and then he tries to
do it again later with music.
"I like to entertain people," he
explained. "My self-imposed job is
to give this music to people while
they're still on the planet."
"Radio is communication, and
arwulf is great at communicating on
the radio and with people," said Kate

sophomore and WCBN staffer. "He

right out of jazz."
ARWULF has strong feelings
about commercial radio. "I think ra-

into a really tedious thing by a lot of
people," he said. He believes radio
should be more community oriented,

radio station) is mostly programmed
