Storm damages


'U' Towers

A tornado that passed through
Washtenaw County yesterday missed
campus, but strong winds and rain
blew roofing off of the west side of
the Art and Architecture Building,
downed power in the Hill dorm area,
and caused minor damage to Univer-
sity Towers.
Several architecture graduate stu-
dents' projects were damaged and a
few were destroyed when winds es-
timated at 70 mph detached the seal
of a water drain on the building's
roof. Part of the roof was also blown
on a courtyard and an adjacent park-
ing lot Building Director Jim Byrd
"It looks like it blew off between
100 to 150 square feet of roofing,"
said Byrd, surveying the building's
damage after the storm.
The storm - ripping shingles off
roofs, uprooting trees and downing
power poles - "leapfrogged" over
the county, alternately touching the
ground as a tornado and then rising
into the air as a funnel cloud, said
Denise Wirtz, of the county's Office
of Emergency Management.

In Ann Arbor, the storm caused
minor damage to the front entrance
of University Towers, leaving a
light fixture: and metal supports
hanging from the ceiling.
"We were concerned here for a
while," said University Tower Resi.
dent Advisor Dan McCarvillet
"there's not too much of a chance ol
a tornado missing this building.'
McCarville said no one was injured
or evacuated during the storm which
hit at about 5:30 p.m.
Later last night, the Hill Dorm
area reported a power outage, al-
though a campus security officer
didn't know whether the storm di-
rectly caused the power failure. The
Markley, Stockwell, and Moshe(
Jordan dormitories, the Med Sct
Complex, and University Terrac4
housing lost power shortly after 9
p.m. for about 45 minutes, he said.

A tree lays in the driveway of Delta Tau Delta fraternity on Geddes, the victim of a severe thunderstorm that swept through Washtenaw
county yesterday afternoon. Up to 70 mph winds damaged University Towers and the Art and Architecture building on North campus
where parts of the roof were torn off. A tornado touched down several times in Washtenaw county.

Rebel leaders arrested
in Philippine crackdown

MANILA, Philippines (AP) -
Communist rebels suffered a major
setback with the the recent arrest of
their top leaders, but military
officials and analysts say the
insurgents are from beaten.
Through their 19-year rebellion,
the guerrillas have demonstrated
remarkable resilience. Despite harsh
crackdowns, their influence has
spread from the countryside to urban
centers, attacks have stepped up and
captured leaders have been replaced
,,President Corazon Aquino, who
has vowed to crush the insurgency
before her term expires in 1992,
hailed last Tuesday's arrests of the
New People's Army commander and
the Communist Party's No. 2 man

as the beginning of the end.
"It clearly demonstrates that we
have turned the tide and are winning
the war against the Communist's
insurgency," she said in a statement.
But military officials and others
say the president may have spoken
too soon, although they
acknowledge that the arrests were a
big blow to 25,000-strong guerrilla
"It will disturb some of their
programs," Brig. Gen. Rodolfo
Biazon, Manila area commander, said
of the arrests. "But to say that this
means the defeat of the Communist
movement may not entirely be
correct because we are fighting an
idea, and the idea is still there."

MSA has not yet studied the'doc-
ument, said new MSA President
Michael Phillips. He said that the
document will go to the assembly's
Student Rights Committee and that
an opinion will be ready by next
Dobbins said he had to "put on
my bo-xing gloves" to prevent
SACUA members from revising de-
tails of the document, but in the end
the group was "immensely apprecia-
tive of what CLB has done" in draft-
ing the document.
"I put on my boxing gloves and
convinced each one of the other
members not to revise it," he told
the board. Among some of the revi-
sions proposed were reordering of
paragraphs and some minor syntax
The statement replaces a similar

document, which CLB chair Prof.
Peter Railton calls "insufficiently
sensitive to protest." That version,
adopted in 1977, emphasized the
rights of speakers
"Expression of diverse points of
view is of the highest importance,
not only for those who espouse a
cause or position and then defend it,"
the preamble to the document reads,
"but also for those who hear and
pass judgment on that defense."
The guidelines recommend rights
of speakers and protestors to be ob-
served, including:
-allowing a speech to continue
even if disruption has been threat-
-prohibiting "undue interference"
with a speech by audience members.
This point permits shouting, heck-
ling, and displaying signs;
-encouraging a dialogue between a
speaker and audience members;
-providing security forces to
"protect the personal security and
rights of free expression of all par-


Art and reason
When Mark and I decided to spend
the weekend at his mother's house,
I never imagined I would be walking
into a mouse's nightmare. There were

What's happening in Ann Arbor today

cats everywhere.
Cat plaques, cat statues, cat clocks,
even a cat mat. I couldn't begin to dupli-
cate her collection of kitty litter if I spent
a year at a garage sale. Conspicuously
absent, however, was a real cat. Strange,
I thought, and began to fear that a
weekend with cat woman could be a
lot less than purr-fect.
But then she came home, and
Mark introduced her. She was
dressed surprisingly well-no
leopard pants. In fact, you
could say she was the cat's meow,
but I'd rather not.
She offered me a cup of Dutch Choc-
olate Mint. Now that was something
I could relate to. Then she brought it
out in the most beautiful, distinctly
unfeline china I'd ever seen. As we
sipped, I found out that Mrs. Campbell
has my same weakness for chocolate,
loves the theater as much as I do, but,
incredibly; never saw "Cats." So Mark
and I are taking her next month.
