dinance "doesn't address the problem

of those people who truly need
(housing) - the elderly, the stu-
dents, the poor." According to
Ouimet, the ordinance would
discourage construction and mainte-
Raaflaub agrees with Ouimet that
the ordinance would be counterpro-
ductive. "It will decrease the incen-
tive to build housing," Raaflaub said.
The Ann Arbor police have also
provoked controversy. While pro-
testers have persistently contended
that the department violates their free
speech rights, others say excessive
criticism of the department by coun-
cil Democrats hinders its effec-
A requirement that the police pro-
vide the council with monthly re-
ports on crime has provoked heated
criticism from Republicans, who
contend the department does not have
time for increased clerical responsi-
assessment. "The Democrats want
monthly reports, which take police
off their beats," Ouimet said. Adding
that the reports are an example the
Democrats trying to "micromanage"
city government, rather than ac-

knowledging the police department's
greater expertise.
He adds that he would increase
patrols on campus. "I think a woman
should be able to walk the Diag (at
night) without fear."
DeVarti said the reports will boost
his continuing efforts to prevent
crime. As a PIRGIM activist in the
'70s, DeVarti said he was part of the
effort to create Night Ride, an inex-
pensive city van system providing
night-time transportation.
In addition, DeVarti recommends
expansion of the Crime Prevention
Unit, currently staffed by one officer.
The unit works with business owners
to improve security.
RAAFLAUB supports a citizen
review board to hear complaints
against the police. He added that "I
think there should be more efforts to
see about using private security" as
an alternative to the police.
On the issue of development, De-
Varti says Ann Arbor must strive to
protect its natural assets and historic
buildings. Proposals such as the re-
cently passed Historic Landmarks
Ordinance "preserve aspects of Ann
Arbor that we cherish," DeVarti said.
But Ouimet says "(City council)

... wants less gov't. intervention
makes it difficult for the developers."
He adds that the council should strive
to balance neighborhood and devel-
opment interests.
Raaflaub responds that the devel-
opers add to Ann Arbor's prosperity.
"A lot of people are afraid of a pros-
perous Ann Arbor," Raaflaub said.

Students depict
common forms of
sexual harassment
Continued from Page 1
"This happens to me all the
time," said LSA senior Brenda Dater,
playing the part of the woman
student. "I'm not listened to. I don't
give a shit how I'm looking. I want
to be listened to!" she said.
One of the participants' main
concerns was how to handle verbal
harassment when it occurs.
"I think it's a personal decision of
how you want to deal with these
issues," said Audrey Haberman,
SAPAC volunteer coordinator. "If
someone feels comfortable
confronting (the offender), I support
them. If the person does not feel
comfortable, that's all right too."
SAPAC Director Julie Steiner
said women in groups may feel safer

and stronger while confronting
verbally abusive men, rather than
having one woman acting as the
Haberman said it is also up to
men to challenge the attitudes of
their friends.
Many of the students debated the
use of the terms "women" and
"girls." Although she calls her male
friends guys, on woman said, she is
offended by being called a girl.
Haberman said the battle over the
terms shows a power struggle
betweenmen and women.
"When a man calls a woman a
girl, he's not saying you're equal to
me." Haberman said. "Even if they
are not using it in a derogatory way,
there is no reason for it. Why can't

Compiled from Associated Press reports
House passes Contra aid bill
WASHINGTON- The House overwhelmingly approved yesterday a
$48 million package of humanitarian aid for the Contra rebels in
Nicaragua and for children injured in seven years of civil war.
The aid bill, passed by a 345-70 vote, was portrayed as a gesture of
U.S. support for a temporary truce reached last week between the rebels
and the Sandinista government, and for talks aimed at achieving a long-
term end to hostilities.
"The hope is that this will lead to political instead of military
processes now taking over" in Nicaragua, said House majority Leader
Thomas Foley, (D-Wash.)
Senate panel endorses treaty
WASHINGTON - The Senate Foreign Relations Committee recom-
mended overwhelmingly yesterday that the Senate ratify a historic treaty
to eliminate all U.S. and Soviet medium-range nuclear weapons.
"This is a small step away from the nuclear brink," said Sen. Alan
Cranston (D-Calif.), said following the committee's 17-2 vote.
"It means the elevator of nuclear escalations will finally stop and
hopefully descend," said committee chairperson Claiborne Pell, (D-R.I.)
Cranston said his head count shows no more than five senators will
vote against the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty when the full
Senate takes up the treaty, probably late next month. Ratification requi-
res a two-thirds Senate majority, 67 votes if all 100 senators are present
and voting.
Violence mars Arab protest
BEIT SAHUR, Occupied West Bank - Hundreds of Arabs defied a
massive security crackdown and battled Israeli troops in the West Bank
yesterday to mark a Palestinian anniversary. Soldiers killed four Arabs
and wounded 39 other, officials said.
The army's toughest restrictions in more than 20 years of occupation
failed to contain the violence. The measures included mass arrests, the
deployment of thousands of extra police, restrictions on media coverage
and a ban on Palestinians traveling in the occupied areas.
"We can't say that Land Day was quiet. It was not." said West Bank
commander Maj. Gen. Avraham Mitzna.
The day commemorates a confrontation on March 30, 1976, when
Israeli Arabs protested the forced sale of 1,600 acres of their land for
Jewish settlement. Six Arabs were killed.
Ariz. Senate dismisses one of
three charges against Mecham
PHOENIX - The Arizona Senate dismissed the third, most serious,
impeachment charge against Gov. Evan Mecham yesterday and moved
toward considering a verdict on the two charges already heard.
The vote was a surprise to most involved, including the senator who
make the motion, Republican Wayne Stump, who had predicted it would
get no more than three votes.
Several of those who voted to dismiss said they were doing so in order
to avoid prejudicing Mecham's upcoming criminal trial on the charge that
he concealed a $350 campaign loan. That would have been the subject of
evidence on the third impeachment charge and Stump said it would have
put the governor in "cross-eyed double jeopardy."
The motion passed on a simple majority with 16 of those present
voting in favor and 12 voting no. Two senators were absent.

The poster on Greer's door de-
picted a "wanted dead or alive" slo-
gan above the head of a 13 year-old
Palestinian boy, who has been ac-
cused of "threatening the existence of

Various Nazi slogans, references
to the Holocaust, and statements

Although the suspect was caught
tearing down the poster rather than
writing on it, Weisbrot said he
thinks the same person was respon-
sible for the previous graffiti.
"The vandalism of the past two
weeks occurred at the samewtime,
was committed by someone with a
building key, and often happened af-
ter all the TAs and grad students left
the building," Weisbrot said. "It was
clearly not his first time since he did
not stop to read the cartoon, but
rather looked all around the hallway
before quickly ripping it down."
The police would not release the
suspect's name, but Weisbrot said he
believed the suspect is a member or
officer of the Michigan Economic
Society because he showed the secu-
rity officers a key to the.MES office.

Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann
Arbor) said MSA's plan is
"extremely unwise... A minority
student is going to be concerned by
that kind allegation and may not
attend the University. It confounds.
the very idea of attracting more
minority students," he said. "MSA
should think things through more
thoroughly... Such a program is
bound to injure the University. It
just will."
Baker said he thought attempting
to taint the University would not be
constructive. "The idea that you can
help someone by injuring them is
false... It's like trying to destroy the
Statue of Liberty to help the cause
of freedom."
The high school newspaper ads
will "describe equally the two issues
of discrimination and administration
attempts to seize control over
student's non-academic lives," the
resolution states.
MSA WILL also add to and
support the United Coalition
Against Racism's efforts to inform
incoming students during orientation
on discriminatory acts, institutional
discrimination, and administration
control over student's non-academic

Irate monkeys attack car
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) - A troop of monkeys roaming the
southern desert attacked a motorist who ran over one of its members,
jumping on the car and smashing the windows, a newspaper recently
The Okaz newspaper said a man was driving to work when he killed
the monkey on the highway in the Khamis Mesheit region. The
newspaper, which did not identify the man, quoted him as saying the
other monkeys chased his car but couldn't catch it.
But when the man drove home later on the same road, he found the
monkeys still gathered around the dead animal's body, according to the
report. When they spotted his car, they jumped on it and smashed the
windows with their fists, the paper said.
The driver sped off and saw the troop dragging the dead monkey into
the nearby mountains, Okaz said.
Residents of the area say monkeys roam about the desert expanses and
sometimes spill over onto the highways.
