Salvadoran speaks at
BY PATRICK STAIGER
The United States sends $2 mil-
lion dollars every day to the gov-
,rnment of El Salvador.
a' Much of that money is used to
protect the government from its own
.people, said Mercedes Selgado, a
representative from the Farabundo
-Marti National Liberation Front, El
Salvador's guerilla army. The
FMLN has been at war with the
government for eight years.
Selgado will be in Ann Arbor
tonight to speak about the current
situation in El Salvador and the role
,the U.S. plays in the country. Her
talk is sponsored by the Latin
,American Solidarity Committee and
is part of a tour of New England and
the Midwest. The Michigan Student
Assembly passed a resolution Tues-
day welcoming Selgado.
"The U.S. has spent more than
$3 billion in my country, and much
of that has gone towards killing
civilians," Selgado said Wednesday
in a phone interview from Boston.
But many in the U.S., including
the Reagan administration, consider
the FMLN terrorists and condemn
their use of violence against the
Jeff Paige, a sociologist at the
University who recently visited El
Salvador, said the word 'terrorist'
does not apply to the FMLN because
they have the support of a large
number of people in El Salvador,
and could not exist without that
"I think the FMLN very likely
represents the majority opinion if
there was a free election in El Sal-
vador," Paige said.
Selgado said it is difficult for
North Americans to understand why
the war exists in El Salvador because
so little is explained in the U.S.
"The FMLN does not want to use
violence - we are forced to use use
violence," Selgado said. "Our goal is
self-determination for the Salvadoran
people to have a real democratic
government without intervention
from foreign countries."'
Selgado will speak tonight at
7:30 p.m. at 2413 Mason Hall.

CHARGES against the three
bars were filed by city police, said
Lt. Richard Cygan, head of the
special investigation department of
the Ann Arbor police. He added that
charges most likely stemmed from
undercover investigations conducted
from January to May this year.
In an undercover operation in
May, 22 separate drinking estab-
lishments in Ann Arbor were cited
for violations of the liquor control
laws, and 20 individuals were ar-
"rested for serving to minors, Cygan
Since only two MLCC officials
hear all the cases in Michigan, Cy-
gan said it is "not unusual" for
charges to be brought before a
MLCC judge five or six months af-
ter the original incident.
Cygan denied that officials were
engaged in a crackdown of campus-
area bars, and said he didn't know
why all three bars were charged
within a three-day period.
The last drinking establishment
to have its license suspended was
Bennigan's near the Briarwood Mall,
Cygan said. In that incident, during
the spring of 1986, an employee was
charged with selling drugs while
working at the restaurant.
THOUGH Bennigan's was the
last bar to receive a suspension,
about six liquor stores have been
cited for liquor violations in the past
two years, according to Cygan.
He said undercover investigations
are conducted by sending minors into
bars and seeing if they can get
served. The results of the investiga-
tions are then sent to the Liquor
Control Commission, and the cases
are heard by hearing officers em-
ployed by the commission.
Individuals charged with serving
alcohol to minors can be tried in
criminal court, he said, but bars and
other establishments must be tried in
civil court through the MLCC.

"diversity plan," and that only peo-
ple with invitations could enter the
IN FACT, Michigan Student
Assembly President Michael
Phillips, representing the student
body, carried a "Duderstadt is illegal"
poster onto the stage. Rackham
Student Government President Tracy
Ore carried a sign protesting the
University's new protest policies.
During his speech, Phillips asked
Duderstadt for "no false promises" in
dealing with racism, sexism, and
homophobia - problems he said
were institutionalized on campus.
"We as students demand that you
remove the walls of racism built in
front of Black, Asian, and Native
American students," Phillips said.
"(Students) are dedicated to equality,
and we ask that the 11th president of
the University join us to build a
multi-cultural University which is
equal for all."
But for the most part, it was all
pomp and circumstance in Hill
Auditorium, with the University's
Symphony Band, Organist, and
Men's Glee Club providing the mu-
sic while the dignitaries filed in.
RACKHAM DEAN John
D'Arms, garbed in a red robe and
black cap, ran the ceremonies, intro-
ducing speakers Sudarkasa, Michigan
State University President John
DiBaggio, University History Prof.
Sidney Fine, Phillips, and others.
Several speakers, such as Engi-
neering Dean Charles Vest, chided
Duderstadt's reputation as a fast-
paced worker. "Having gotten
smallcr but better, are we now to get
faster and faster?" Vest asked. "Are
we to pace the floor, pace the race,
or simply become pace makers? Will
we arrive at the second millennium
before the year 2000?"
Spectators seemed to enjoy the
invitation-only event. LSA senior
Lloyd Sarrel said he was impressed
by the "pomp and circumstance," and
criticized the protesters outside. "It
amazes me that something as presti-
gious as this can't go on without
interruption," he said.

Gov. pushes super collider
WASHINGTON - Gov. James Blanchard tried to convince Energy
Secretary John Herrington yesterday the state has the top site for the 4.4
billion superconducting super collider.
This week, delegations from the seven states contending for the super
collider met with Herrington. The site will be chosen within 45 days.
Michigan's proposed site for the physics research laboratory is in
Stockbridge, a farm town midway between Lansing and Ann Arbor.
Blanchard said the physicists' top priorities - extensive computer
facilities, employment opportunities for spouses and high quality public
education - were hallmarks of the Stockbridge site.
Physicists plan to use the super collider to smash protons into each
other, which will allow the testing of theories of matter and energy.
Jury decides Brawley lied
POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - The grand jury in the Tawana Brawley
case concluded in a report released yesterday that the black teenager
apparently concocted her story of abduction and rape by a gang of white
men. The jury also found nothing to suggest a cover-up by law
The report cited no evidence of sexual assault, and suggested that the
girl herself was responsible for the feces-smeared condition in which she
was found after a four day disappearance.
The New York Times reported last month that the grand jury had
overwhelming evidence the former Wappingers Falls resident fabricated
her story of racial assault, perhaps to avoid punishment for late nights
Miss Brawley refused to answer reporters questions about her claim.
Officials slash SDI costs
WASHINGTON - In what one official acknowledged was "a startling
change," the Defense Department said yesterday it has slashed the cost of
the first phase of a Star Wars defensive shield from $115 billion to $69
billion, and the system could be available within a decade.
But Sen. Sam Nunn, D-Ga., chairperson of the Senate Armed Services
Committee, said the figures should be viewed with "some skepticisim"
because the cost of weapons programs often goes down while they are in
the planning stages and then rises when production starts.
The new figures arise from a restructuring of the Strategic Defense
Initiative, the formal name of President Reagan's.5-year-old program to
develop a high-tech shield against attack by Soviet nuclear missiles.
Bill to fight medical waste
dumping passes in Congress
WASHINGTON - The House of Representatives, alarmed by used
syringes and vials of AIDS-infected blood washing up on shorelines,
joined the Senate yesterday in approving legislation to combat the
dumping of medical waste.
The bill requires the Environmental Protection Agency set up a
system to track infectious or dangerous trash from hospitals, labs, and
clinics to its disposal.
In response to this summer's much-publicized washups of medical
trash along the Atlantic Coast, Lake Erie, and Lake Michigan, the bill
implements tracking in several states including Michigan.
The new measure stipulates that medical waste such as blood,
hypodermic needles, scalpels, and surgical and laboratory waste that has
been in contact with infectious agents be segregated from other medical
waste. The legislation does not set any standards for actual disposal.
Minister weds ceremony
NORTH MUSKEGON - The Rev. Ben Jansen loves weddings so
much, he's performed them at bowling alleys, skateboard ramps, rodeos,
construction sites, parking ramps - even on the ice at hockey arenas.
"I started advertising for weddings out of necessity. I had a job driving
a truck and realized I needed to spend more time with the church but I
needed to initiate some income," Jansen said.
It wasn't long before Jansen began getting requests from people who
were turned down by other pastors in town beause the couple didn't want
a church ceremony.
He's only drawn the line once.
"A couple called and asked if I would marry them in the buff," Jansen
said. "I thought she said 'on the bus' and I said sure... I did the wedding,
but we all had clothes on."
