genitals and interfere with intercourse.
Health Services also diagnosed a
large number of Non-Gonococcal
Urethritis (NGU), also known as
Chlamydia, for the primary bacteria
involved. The bacteria infects the
urethra in men and the cervix and
vagina in women; it can lead to
sterility in both sexes and can cause
eye damage or infant pneumonia in
newborn infants if untreated.
HEALTH SERVICES re-
ported about 200 cases of gonorrhea
last year and 23 cases of syphilis.
Briefer said Health Services treats
an equal number of men and women
with sexually transmitted diseases.

RAPE

emption."
Susan McGee, one of the
founders of the Coalition to End Le-
galized Rape, which has lobbied the
legislature since last fall, said she is
"surprised, but pleased" that the bill
succeeded.
"It gives married women the same
protection under the law that unmar-
ried women have," McGee said.
McGee's group introduced the
measure to the House last June when
the Michigan State Supreme Court
decided not to rule on the constitu-
tionality of Michigan's marital rape
law .
NO organized groups have tried
to block the measure, but Senate
Judiciary Committee Chairman
Rudy Nichols (R-Waterford) said he
would like to add a requirement that
there be at least one independent
witness to a rape to prevent women
from bringing false charges during
divorce battles.
"This could present an evidentiary
problem that boils down to one per-
son's word against the other,"
Nichols said.
McGee disagreed with Nichols
because, she said, witnesses are not
required in the prosecution of any
other type of rape. "Marital status
should not make a difference," she
said.
Emily Hall, a Detroit attorney
and member of the Coalition
Against Legalized Rape, cited statis-
tics that six to 14 percent of all
women are raped by their husbands
during their marriages.
IF THE BILL becomes law,
Michigan would join 18 other states
that now prosecute marital rape.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press reports
Top Meese aids quit abruptly
WASHINGTON - In a move that reportedly shocked Attorney Gen-
eral Edwin Meese, the Justice Department's No. 2 official and the head of
the department's criminal division abruptly resigned yesterday amid a
nearly year-old criminal investigation of Meese.
Deputy Attorney General Arnold Burns said in a letter to President
Reagan that "Unfortunately, I have regretfully concluded that I must re-
turn to private life at this time." He did not elaborate.
William Weld, who as an assistant attorney general oversees all federal
criminal investigations, resigned effective at the close of the business day
yesterday, despite a personal plea from other department officials that he
remain on for several weeks.
Israelis isolate occupied area
RAMALLAH. Occupied West Bank - Israel's army isolated the
occupied territories yesterday, but Palestinians threw gasoline bombs at
patrolling soldiers and the Israelis opened fire and wounded eight of the
demonstrators.
The unprecedented crackdown on the 1.5 billion Arabs in the occupied
West Bank and Gaza Strip was aimed at halting four months of unrest and
at preventing mass demonstration by Palestinians today. Today marks the
12th anniversary of Land Day, when Israeli soldiers killed six Arabs
protesting land confiscation.
Foreign relief workers were barred from entering the occupied lands.
Thousands of police were mobilized yesterday to enforce curfews in Arab
towns in Israel.
General access for journalists has been withdrawn. Foreign journalists
asked the Supreme Court to overturn the order banning them from the
territories, the first in 20 years of Israeli occupation.
Swagart barred for one year
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Fiery evangelist Jimmy Swaggart was or-
dered yesterday not to preach from the pulpit or his television show for at
least a year while he is rehabilitated from "moral failure" that reportedly
included paying a prostitute to pose nude.
In announcing its decision, the Assemblies of God elders disregarded a
more lenient three-month suspension recommended by the church in
Louisiana. The national church included provisions for two years of reha-
bilitation and counseling to begin when Swaggart has agreed to
rehabilitation in writing.
Louisiana district officials refused comment, as did the Jimmy Swag-
gart Worldwide Ministries in Baton Rouge, La. But a spokesman said
Swaggart's ministry would have a statement today.
Aspirin can increase heart
attack survival, study shows
ATLANTA - A two-year international study of more than 17,000
heart patients showed that aspirin and the clot-disolving drug streoto-
kinase, taken together after the onset of chest pains, reduce deaths among
heart attack victims.
The Second International Study on Infarct Survival, involving patients
in 400 hospitals in 16 countries, is billed as the largest heart attack
treatment study ever. It was presented yesterday at the annual meeting of
the American College of Cardiology.
Drs. Rory Collins and Peter Sleight and researcher Richard Peto, all of
the University of Oxford, England, said the importance of the study lies
more in the size of the sample than in what was done. They said other
studies were too small to give a true picture of the effects of the drugs.

Robin Hood's reputation
saved by Nottingham sheriff
NOTTINGHAM, England (AP) - Brochures besmirching the legend
of Robin Hood were ordered publicly burned by an unlikely defender of
the medieval hero, the sheriff of Nottingham.
Sheriff Royce Young told councilmember Brian Marshal, chair of the
city's tourism committee, to get rid of the glossy color leaflets that took
a skeptical view of the hero of Sherwood Forest.
A pile of the brochures, which had been on display at the Nottingam
Information Center, were burned publicly on Thursday.
Royce, whose medieval predecessor was Robin's enemy, said earlier
this month that he would like to see the researchers who wrote it "locked
in the dungeons of Nottingham Castle."
The brochure caused a storm by claiming Robin Hood and Maid
Marian never met. Friar Tuck did not exist and Robin never robbed the
rich to feed the poor but was in business for himself.
