Nearly 100 men attended the
Speak-Out.
"It's important (for me to attend)
so I'm well informed, so I don't
contribute to a rape culture," said
irst-year LSA student Max Gordon.

"We contribute the most to the rape
culture. There will be no changes if
the only people who are working to
end the rape culture are women's
groups."
One survivor said she gained
inspiration from small things -
like the Speak-Out.
"Having you here is one of those
things," she said. "If you all (give
survivors support), Speak-Out's
won't happen every year. They'll
happen every day. If they happen
everyday, someday far into the
future, there won't be any sexual
assault. I hope."

The flier was reportedly distributed

in the students' message folders at
about 8 a.m. Tuesday, and was im-

Ron Wheeler, law student and
Lesbian/Gay Law Students member,
said that he doesn't view the incident
as a "lesbian/gay male issue but as a
personal attack... Our organization

said.
The students depicted in the flier

The law deans will vote today on
an anti-discrimination clause, which
would prevent organizations that dis-

that the vote on the anti-discrimina-

The plan was originally drawn up
in response to racist incidents on
campus in 1987. The University's
image was tarnished by negative
publicity, and public officials
including state Rep. Morris Hood (D-
Ann Arbor) demanded that the
University improve Black enrollment
figures.
Nineteen new Black faculty
members were also added this fall,
compared to six hired last year.

INBRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Report denies SSC hazard
LANSING - Operation of the proposed atom-smashing Super-
conducting Super Collider won't present a significant health risk to
people living nearby and shouldn't threaten the environment, according to
a state committee studying safety issues.
The 18-member committee made up of health and business officials,
scientists, area residents, and environmentalists was established to
independently examine health and safety issues related to the potential site
of the super collider in Michigan.
"There are essentially no extraordinary radiation hazards to the public,"
according to a report issued by the committee last week.
The U.S. Department of Energy is scheduled to name a preferred site
for the project sometime next month. The final selection is scheduled to
be made by President Reagan before he leaves office in January.
Unopposed reps. raise
$15 million dollars
WASHINGTON - The 60 House members facing no major party
challenge to re-election have raised $15 million for their campaigns, and
nearly half of them will be entitled to keep any unspent money when they
retire, according to a recent study compiled by the watchdog group
Congress Watch.
The legislators or their aides who were questioned defended the fund
raising, arguing that campaign funds must be collected before they know
whether they will have and election opponent.
"If you had a crystal ball, you wouldn't enter into one of these fund-
raising strategies," said Cliff Gibbons, who is campaign finance manager
for his father, Rep. Sam Gibbons, (D-Fla).
Congress Watch found that from Jan. 1, 1987 through Sept. 30, 1988,
32 of the 60 essentially unopposed candidates raised more than $100,000
from political action committees. PAC's spent a total of 7.6 million
supporting these candidates.
Nuke plants found unsafe
WASHINGTON - Demands for improved safety procedures at U.S.
nuclear weapons plants mounted yesturday as 31 members of the House
Armed Services Committee appealed directly to President Reagan.
"The crisis... stems from inadequate attention to maintenance, safety,
and operating conditions," the lawmakers said in a letter to Energy
Secretary John Herrington.
Four of the Department of Energy's 16 major plants have been
partially or wholly shut down this year over safety concerns, prompting
hearings before House and Senate panels. On Wednesday, a nationwide
medical association, Physicians for Social Responsibility; said the
problems "constitute a public health emergency," and urged medical
studies on cancer rates among workers and neighbors of the plants.
Mich. bans non-state waste
MARINE CITY, Mich. - Federal and state lawmakers said yesterday
they hope a pair of new bills will end plans by eastern states to bury
garbage in private Michigan landfill.
U.S. Sen. Donald Riegle (D-Flint) and state Rep. James Docherty (D-
Port Huron), said the bills are aimed at blocking out-of-state solid waste.
At a news conference held outside the privately-owned Huron
Development Landfill in St. Clair County's China Township, the
lawmakers decried moves by New York and New Jersey to dump trash in
Michigan.
"We sit in the middle of the Great Lakes," Riegle said, "and we're
going to be a national dump here? The senator was in the state cam-
paigning for re-election against his Republican opponent, former U.S.
Rep. Jim Dunn.
Riegle's bill, to be introduced when Congress reconvenes in January,
would force states to dispose of their own solid waste unless a county in
another state gives them permission to dump it.
EXTRAS
They're back...
Martians return to the U.S.
The Martians are coming again, 50 years after Orson Welles scared the
bejabbers out of hundreds of thousands of Americans who believed a War
of the Worlds had broken out on Halloween eve.
WUOM (91.7 FM) Ann Arbor will re-broadcast the radio show 9 p.m.
Sunday.
The hysteria over the radio broadcast clogged telephone lines and roads
as gullible listeners thought huge cylinders carrying Martians were
landing throughout the country, wiping out military forces with heat rays
and poisonous gas.

Some who sheepishly recounted their terror said they headed for the
hills after hearing the fictional newscast. Others said they grabbed their
guns to fight the invaders. Others just prayed.
"It was a worldwide event, and it raises intriguing questions about
human psychology, civil defense the' power of broadcasting, media
responsiblity and what kind of relationship we might have with other
beings from another world," said Douglas Forrester, who is heading up
the 50th anniversary celebration of the broadcast.
Well, maybe. Just remember- don't get freaked out this time.
