Vice President and Chief Finan-
cial Officer Farris Womack is con-
ducting an investigation of an alter-
cation between members of the
Michigan Student Assembly's stu-
dent rights committee and Director
of Public Safety Leo Heatley.
Womack's office is in charge of
Public Safety.
A student from MSA has filed a
complaint about the treatment they
received from Heatley with Univer-
sity President James Duderstadt.
MSA members Nick Navrick and
Brad Adelman, an LSA sophomore,
said they made an appointment with
Heatley Oct. 14 to discuss Duder-
stadt's inauguration. The students
said they asked Heatley several ques-
tions regarding the security costs and
procedures of the inauguration.
Navrick said that when he asked if
any of the protester arrests were
made by deputized security officers
Heatley became angry and said the
meeting was over.
Heatley had another safety officer
read him the trespassing code when
he persisted in asking for informa-
stion about the arrest of student
,protesters, Navrick said.
Heatley said his office would not
comment on the incident. The Ann
Arbor Police Department confirmed
that at least one of the arrests was
made by a deputized public safety
"What I find disconcerting about
the whole thing is that I'm a student
and the fact that he wouldn't answer
-my questions in a civil environment.
Nothing warranted his action,"
Navrick said.
Adelman added, "During the
meeting he (Heatley) was dead set on
not talking about the inauguration."
Womack said, "We are doing
what we need to do to discover what
happened." He added that both sides
were being contacted. He would not
Comment further on the incident or
the investigation.
Student Rights Chair Julie Mur-
ray said that she complained to
Womack and asked that an
mivestigation take place. "I wanted to
go as much as possible through
'official channels." She said if noth-
ing came of the investigation other
options would be looked into.

Proposal A
stir debate

Members of the Society for Creative Anachronism engage in battle during Festifall.
The society aims to recreate medieval life.

Supporters on each side of the tax-
funded abortion issue differ over
whether or not pregnancy is a likely
result of rape.
Margy Long, Public Affairs
Coordinator of Planned Parenthood in
Washtenaw County, said yesterday
the chance for pregnancy is increased
because of rape trauma.
"Evidence suggests that the
trauma associated with rape tends to
increase the chance of ovulation in
women, thus making pregnancies
more likely," she said, citing recent
articles in the Journal of Sex Edu-
cation and Therapy.
BUT MIKE Quillen, Wash-
tenaw County's Field Coordinator of
the Committe to End Tax-Funded
Abortions, said conception from
forcible rate is quite rare.
"Numerous studies dating back to
the late 1960s and early 1970s
suggest the unlikely nature of preg-
nancy as a result of rape," he said.
"There is far more evidence sup-
porting this than there is supporting
the opposite notion."
The comments came in response
to Gov. James Blanchard's criticism
Monday of the proposal to end tax-
funded abortions, known as Proposal
A on the Nov. 8 ballot.
Blanchard said Monday Proposal
A is extreme because it doesn't make
exceptions for poor women who are
victims of rape or incest.
LONG NOTED that State Sen.
Lana Pollack (D-Ann Arbor) and
Second District U.S. Representative
Carl Pursell (R-Plymouth) have also
voiced their opposition to the pro-
posal. Pollack is challenging Pursell
for his congressional seat in Novem-

David Szymanski, a spokesperson
for the Committee to End Tax-
Funded Abortions, accused the Gov-
ernor on Monday of trying to confuse
States that have exceptions for
rape and incest have found the
provision unenforcible, he said,
which results in many women falsely
claiming they were raped in order to
qualify for state-paid abortions. He
added that pregnancies do not often
happen as a result of rape.
Long yesterday attacked Szyman-
ski's statements as ill-founded. "He
has no way of knowing if pregnan-
cies from rape are rare," she said. "It
is generally not known at the time a
pregnancy is determined if it is the
result of rape."
FIGURES show approximately
18,000 abortions are performed in
Michigan every year, at a cost to the
state of nearly $6 million. Of these,
300 are performed in Washtenaw
Blanchard said Monday that the
cost of supporting children who end
up on the welfare rolls outstrips the
cost of a state-paid abortion.
"The cost for care of a child who
is not wanted or is on public assis-
tance is enormous," he said. "It far
outweighs the cost of a medical
A spokesperson for the Peoples'
Campaign for Choice in Lansing said
the average cost for pre-natal, birth,
and post-natal care in Michigan is
$3,153, compared to $144 for a first
trimester abortion. A second tri-
mester abortion costs $318, while
first year support payments for
children born in Michigan average

Medieval afi
recreate a ti
Imagine a year-round medieval Halloween party.
Imagine hand-to-hand combat in authentic steel and
leather armor. Imagine being a duke or duchess, a
maiden, a pirate, a king or queen in another century and
The Society for Creative Anachronism is a modern
attempt to recreate medieval life at its best. Close to 50
people from the Ann Arbor area have joined groups
around the world in reliving this medieval fantasy.
THE SOCIETY, founded in Berkeley, California in
1968 after a party with a medieval theme turned into a
regular event, is more than just another entertaining or-
ganization, said David Hoornstra, who has the title of
"co-Seneschal of the Shire of Cynnabar." Hoornstra
helped organize the Ann Arbor group in 1978.
"It is a society to research and recreate the Middle
Ages and Renaissance in Europe," said Linda Duvall,
who is a twentieth-century school teacher. Although
during her nine years as part of the Shire, she has also
been known as Claire FitzWilliam, a twelfth century
English autocrat.
"The older it (the society) gets, the more research
there is on how clothes looked and food tasted. It's
exciting to see how close we can get," Duvall added.
Taking a persona, from 600 to 1600 A.D., and creat-
ing a costume befitting that person, provides society
members with "a unique opportunity," said Joseph
Radding, an 11-year member who originally joined the
group at Northwestern University. Radding's persona,
Eliahu ben Itzhak, has climbed the medieval social ladder
from painter to twice-crowned king.
EVERYONE BEGINS on the same level within
the society and can become distinguished through their
medieval talents - ranging from medieval combat to
dance, calligraphy, and costume making, Radding said.
The "Shire" meets weekly in East Quad on Monday
Coronations occur at a special weekend tournament


tme gone b
held every six months. Hand-to-hand combat in which
competitors use real armor and wooden weapons deter-
mines who becomes royalty, The 500 to 700 participants
are properly trained before the competition, Radding ex-
The tournament and the organization hinge on the
honor system. Fighters judge when a blow would have
eliminated them in real life and act accordingly. The
winner is declared prince or princess of Middle King-
dom, one of 12 kingdoms in North America, for a half
year and then takes the throne as king or queen.
Duvall described the year-round weekend festivals as
the "real events" of the society.
She-said each festival consists of art and science con-
tests and merchant booths. Members, who must wear
their garb, partake in a feast of period recipes. After eat-
ing, the king and queen hold court and distribute awards.
The day ends with medieval dancing and revelry.
THIS TYPE of organization appeals to a variety of
ages and interests and has a flexible time commitment,
Duvall said.
LSA senior Eric Panek, one of about 12 students cur-
rently involved in the Shire of Cynnabar, came to the
society out of interest in fencing. His persona, a fifth
century Scot-Irish pirate is working with LSA senior
Sean O'Dea's Girhard vum Eisenherz on the art of brew-
ing. Both also participate in the combat sports.
The society remains mostly a student group, Hoorn-
stra said, since the majority of members either have been
or are currently in college.
NAMED by science fiction author Marion Zimmer
Bradley, the society lives up to its claim of
"anachronism," being out of proper time.
Hoornstra said of his Shire, "We're a relatively pro-
fessional group. Activities are open for everyone. If
there's an interest area we'll have a subcommittee or
guild formed to teach it."
"The emphasis is on everything Middle Ages in a
very real way."

Plane crash kills 19
in Peruvian Andes

LIMA, Peru (AP) - An Aero-
peru plane carrying 69 people crashed
in the Andes shortly after takeoff
yesterday, killing at least 19 people,
authorities reported.
They said the 50 other passengers
and crew were injured.
Some passengers were believed to
be foreign tourists, the officials
reported, but they did not release the
identities or nationalities of the dead
and injured. Lima police said five of
the injured were foreigners.
Officials said the cause of the
crash had not been determined. A
Peruvian congressman on Aeroperu
Flight 771 said there was an
explosion aboard just after takeoff.

Reports on the number of deaths
Puno state Gov. Victor Urbiola
put the toll at 22. He spoke in a ra-
dio interview after visiting the crash
site 540 miles southeast of Lima.
Dr. Percy Cadenas, chief physi-
cian at the Juliaca hospital, where the
injured were taken, said as many as
20 people perished.
Jose Guerra, president of the state-
run airline, said the plane was filled
to capacity with 69 people and 50
survived the crash, which occurred
soon after the Dutch-built Fokker F-
28 left the Manco Capac airport at
Juliaca in the Andes.
