Albert Gore Jr. got a message
from two Democratic Party
heavyweights on Thursday to tone
down his criticism of presidential
front-runners Michael Dukakis and
Jesse Jackson, while Sen. Paul
Simon put his campaign on hold but
kept his delegates in pocket.
New York Gov. Mario Cuomo,
one of the Gore critics, implied he
might withhold his sought-after
endorsement and said, "Who care
what...Mario Cuomo says?"
Cuomo said he told Gore that his
negative campaigning "wasn't
helping him" in New York ahead of
that state's April 19 primary.
But Gore consultant David Garth,
a sometime adviser to Cuomo, took
exception to the governor's com-
ments. "Big chief, big blanket, sends
up big smoke signal - like make
nice and roll over," Garth said, adding
that he assumed Cuomo was trying
to help Dukakis win New York.
Simon, who managed only a
primary victory in his home state of
Illinois, said he would suspend
campaigning, but refused to release
his 170 delegates in hopes of
influencing the national convention.
"I want to have an impact on who
the party nominates," Simon told a
Capitol Hill news conference. "I
want to have an impact on the whole
process there (at the Atlanta
convention), and on where we go." ,

UNIVERSITY Gay Male Ad-
vocate Jim Toy said he thinks the
attitude toward gays within the
'Greek system is representative of
Fnale attitudes across the country.
"Male peer bonding in the United
States has to do with reinforcing
nmasculinity. A way to do that for
riiany men is to discriminate against
.,gay men and lesbian women," he
But although Boggs said he be-
lieves "homophobia is still rampant
"it the Greek system," he doesn't
think that it is any worse than in the
rest of society. "I think (Greek atti-
tudes toward gays) are indicative of
our culture right now," he said.
Toy and several of the fraternity
officers also cited fears of AIDS as
contributing to Greek homophobia.
"(Fraternity members) are protecting
themselves from something they
think can kill them," Bishop said. "I
understand that's probably wrong,
but that's the way people think."
MOST fraternity members in-
terviewed said that the anti-gay sen-
timents on the part of some Greeks
carry over into rush, often meaning
that an effeminate male will have a
worse chance of being accepted than
a more "masculine" student.
"I think once in a while (during
rush), we'll focus more on someone
(who seems effeminate) to see what
their attitudes are," said Trent Tappe,
president of Kappa Sigma. "We'd
send more people over to talk to
Some of the Gay Greeks mem-
bers said effeminate rushers are not
only scrutinized more closely, but
effectively blacklisted. "There was a
guy going through rush at my house
who was interesting and well
dressed, but he was effeminate," said
John. "People thought he was gay
and he was out."
Triangle president Kevin Mc-
Carthy said the fraternity recently
"cut" a pledge, who he described as
"a little on the 'femmy' side." Mc-
Carthy said he believes the pledge's
appearance was the reason for the
cut, although he said he did not ap-
prove of the decision.
GAY GREEK members and
fraternity officers interviewed also
said that openly-gay males have a
slim if not non-existent chance of
"I don't think he would have the

slightest chance," Bishop said. "It
would affect my vote."
But while Tappe agreed that gay
men's chances are small, he would
not rule out the possibility that they
might be accepted. "A couple of
years ago, I'd say they had no
chance, but now it's more liberal,"
Few Gay Greeks members said
they thought the situation for gays
in the Greek system would improve.
And most fraternity members agreed
that gays are still largely unwelcome
in the Greek system, although they
said they wished it wasn't the case.
But Boggs is more optimistic. As
society becomes more accepting of
gays and lesbians, the Greek system
might follow suit, he said. "In the
future, if people's attitudes change,
if people grow up more, it might

Jewish settlers mourn slain
girl, Israelis kills Palestinian
KARNEI SHOMRON, Occupied West Bank - Armed Jewish
settlers vowed revenge yesterday and shouted "Expel the Arabs" as they
buried an Israeli girl stoned to death by Palestinians. Troops killed a man
in the town where she was slain.
And soldiers arrested hundreds of Arabs and blew up five homes in
Beita. Israeli settlers attacked tow nearby Arab villagers, beating residents,
breaking windows and firing further revenge raids by vigilante groups.
An army statement said the Palestinian fatally shot in Beita was a
suspect in the attack on a group of Israeli teen-agers Wednesday in which
Tirza Porat was killed.
Few Arabs expressed regret about the death of Porat. "The Jews
won't be convinced to make peace with us until they see lots of
bloodshed," said, an Arab grocer in Nablus who would not reveal his
Opposition to Noriega splits
PANAMA CITY, Panama - A major rift appeared yesterday in the
opposition to Gen. Manuel Noriega, who is getting tough with critics in
defiance of the U.S. economic squeeze and a buildup of American forces
Two parties split from the opposition alliance to form their own
Roberto Arosemena and Mauro Zuniga, leaders of the Popular Action
Party, announced formation of the Popular Civic Movement in a break
with the National Civic Crusade, an alliance of about 200 organizations
that has led the 10-month-old effort to oust Noriega.
They told a news conference their movement also is backed by the
Authentic Panamanian Party, the largest opposition political party.
Hijacked jet to leave Iran today
NICOSIA, Cyprus - Airport workers in northeast Iran refueled a
Kuwaiti jetliner yesterday, and its Arab hijackers said they would take off
Friday morning with about 50 hostages held for three days, Iran's news
The official Islamic Republic News Agency quoted the hijackers as
saying they would take off at midnight (4:30 pm EDT) with about 50
hostages, but did not give a destination. The hour passed with no
indication whether the plane had left.
As the drama at Mashhad Airport in northeastern Iran stretched into its
third day, the hijackers said they placed explosives throughout the Kuwait

Court acquits supremacists
FORT SMITH, Ark. - Thirteen white supremacists who were tried
on federal charges including murder, robbery, and conspiring to set up a
new nation in the Pacific Northwest were found innocent yesterday of all
An all-white jury, which reported itself deadlocked on several counts
Wednesday, returned the verdict on its fourth day of deliberations, Asked
how the seven-week trial affected the white supremacist movement,
defendant Robert Miles said, "Who knows? What movement? What's left
of it after this?"'
Defendant Louis Beam celebrated his acquittal by going to a
Confederate memorial opposite the court building and claiming victory
against what he called the "Zionist occupation movement."

Giant sandwich invades 'U',
says 'take me to your leader'
A sandwich larger than a compact car was spotted yesterday
approaching the President's house on S. University. An eyewitness, who
asked to remain anonymous for fear of "becoming mustard," identified the
hoagie as "big, with either turkey or ham and some kind of cheese. I
couldn't be sure, but I think it was wearing a thin coat of mayo... or was
it special sauce?"
The sandwich reportedly caused several traffic backups and left a trail
of crumbs and sesame seeds in its wake. President Robben Fleming and
his dog, Checkers, have not been seen since the alleged assault, but
Public Safety head Leo Heatley refused to comment on rumors of a
But seriously, folks, the incident was nothing more than a mixup in
yesterday's advertisements for a "Large Sub Special" at Sgt. Pepper's Deli
on E. University and the President's Open House next Monday. Of
course, refreshments will be served at the affair.
