but there was nothing the students
could do," she said. "If it had gone
through (Regental bylaw) 7.02, that
problem wouldn't have existed."
The bylaw provides for the exis-
tence of the University Council, a
nine-member panel of students, ad-
ministrators and faculty required to
approve any regental resolution deal-
ing with student conduct. The regents
bypassed 7.02 when formulating the
anti-harassment policy last April.
Recently SACUA and MSA
passed resolutions for reconvening
tie council. Murray said she hopes
that will happen by later this month.
"[The administrator's role] is a
concern and I know that with the

University Council getting together
that will be one of the things that
will be looked at," Murray said.
"Who has the power [over the pol-
icy]?"
Chekal said that filing the com-
plaint was difficult, but he was glad
he had done it. "It's hard to file a
complaint," he said. "You're putting
yourself on the line, but at least the
offer is open to you."
The policy was implemented by
the University's Board of Regents on
May 1. The policy prohibits any be-
havior that creates an intimidating
environment for educational pursuits
on the basis of many factors includ-
ing race, sex, handicap, and sexual
orientation. Complaints can result in
formal reprimand, community or ed-
ucational service, and, in extreme
cases, suspension or expulsion.

"You can have a dianoetic that I call
historical amnesia - a rewriting of
the public memory."
Whites today may think the
problems are solved, he said, but
they're not.
Most of the setbacks in the Black
American political situation stem
from the Reagan administration,
Marable said.
Not only do "cut backs in grants
and in loans going to low-income
and working-class students have a
disproportionately discriminatory
impact upon African-American
youth," but there is a widespread
feeling of cultural alienation for
those African-Americans who get to
college, he said.
But Dukakis has failed to portray
himself as a supporter of minorities,
Marable said, and will probably lose.
Dukakis failed to "cast his agenda

as a fighting, democratic agenda,"
and failed to "use the money and the
resources to expand the base of the
election and go after unemployed
voters," Marable said. He also failed
to take the lead from Black and His-
panic Progressive leaders.
Political Science Prof. Michael
Dawson, who studies Black voting
patterns and political attitudes,
agreed: "Dukakis has had a tendency
to distance himself from the Black
community until the past two
weeks."
Psychology Prof. Donald Kinder
has said George Bush is using racial
fears to discredit Dukakis and win
votes. "Since 1964, like all Demo-
cratic candidates, Dukakis has faced
the following dilemma: to maintain
the loyalty and enthusiasm of the
Black citizens, while at the same
time not driving whites who are
conservative on racial issues out of
the party. Given that dilemma, Du-
kakis' solution has been to turn his
back on race in 1988."

tional situation. He was soon relayed
a temedy program from Berkeley via
the same electronic mail network on
which the virus spread. When run,
the program quickly eradicated the
viral infection.
The virus - unrelated to those
attacking personal computers on
campus - was designed by Robert

Morris, Jr., a Cornell University
computer science graduate student
who was still at large as of yester-
day. The virus was initially indended
to slowly spread itself among the
computers on the nationwide IN-
TERNET computer network, adding
a harmless file to the computers.
However, a programming mistake
allowed it to replicate itself hundreds
of times within the same computer,
thus slowing down the systems and

forcing computer operators nation-
wide to spend hours Friday eradicat-
ing the files.
Computer viruses are programs
intended to infiltrate computer sys-
tems, often causing the destruction
of data or slowdown in processing.
They are often hidden in legitimate
applications or files, as was Morris'.
Morris' virus spread itself by
randomly guessing passwords to
various computer systems on IN-

TERNET, eventually working its
way through most of the system and
impairing the computers' processing
rates. Two Department of Defense
systems, ARPANET and MILNET,
were among the infected. But no
classified information was at risk on
any of the infected systems, said
Braun. However, he added that much
non-classified information had been
in danger until the virus was cured.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Maldivian rebels kill 4
MALE, Maldives - Indian commandos rescued 20 hostages and
recovered bodies of four others aboard a crippled getaway ship yesterday
aften gunners who tried to overthrow the Maldives government
surrendered, Indian officials said.
Officials reported three hostages were missing.
Armed Sri Lankan mercenaries ended a two-day high seas standoff early
yesterday after the Indian frigate Godavari fired on the cargo vessel 60
miles from the Sri Lankan coast, Indian officials said.
They said the alleged mastermind of Thursday's bloody coup attempt,
an aide to former Maldivian President Ibrahim Nasir, was among the 46
people who surrendered. Nasir has denied involvement in the coup.
An Indian government spokesperson said the Indian navy was returning
the alleged mastermind - Maldivian businessperson Abdullah Luthufi-
and the captured mercenaries to the 2,000-island nation to be put on trial.
2nd amnesty phase begins
The second phase of the federal government's immigration amnesty
program starts today, when thousands of amnesty recipients can begin
applying for permanent residency and get their so-called green cards.
Federal officials expect about 1.5 million of the 1.8 million non-
agricultural workers who applied for amnesty under the Immigration
Reform and Control Act of 1986 to apply for permanent residency.
But that figure may be optimistic, authorities said, because some
potential applicants could find themselves shut out of overcrowded
English and civics classes they must take to qualify for permanent
residency.
In Los Angeles, at least one school - the Evans Community Adult
School - has been holding classes 24 hours a day to handle the crush.
In New York City, classes will be offered by the Board of Education,
the City University of New York, and many community-based
organizations.
Israeli army attacks PLO
supplier, guerrilla base
SIDON, Lebanon - Israeli helicopter gunships rocketed the shop of a
boat dealer suspected of links with PLO guerrillas yesterday, demolishing
the business and wounding five people, two of them seriously, police
said. The shop was closed at the time.
A police spokesperson said the shop owner, Mahmoud Hijazi, was
suspected of renting two motorboats to PLO guerrillas and selling the
guerrillas spare parts. Hijazi's motorboats were not hit in the raid.
Earlier police reports said aircraft also attacked a guerrilla base in
Sidon. The Israeli army said the base was used for launching attacks an
ammunition storage. It was the sixth Israeli air strike against guerrilla
targets in south Lebanon in three weeks.
The blitz is in apparent retaliation for a suicide car-bombing that killed
eight Israeli soldiers in south Lebanon on Oct. 19 and a firebomb attack
that killed an Israeli mother and her three children in the Israeli-occupied
West Bank Oct. 30.
Candidates remain confident
George Bush and Michael Dukakis both laid claim Sunday to precious,
last-minute momentum in their campaign marathons, the vice president
declaring the tide was "moving in our direction" and his opponent
insisting he was "rocking and rolling" to a victory.
Both candidates battled the clock and physical exhaustion in a final
drive to snare undecided voters and nail down the presidency.
Saturday's NBC News survey showed the vice president's lead has
fallen recently to a slight one, while 21 percent of the voters are
"undecided or may still change their minds."
Inside the Congress, Democrats voiced confidence they would retain or
perhaps widen their majorities, and few dispute this. Polls have shown a
general contentment with the status quo, which works to the benefit of
incumbents.
EXTRAS
Horses pass on racetrack to
head for breeding shed
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Ronnie Lamaroue, the singing auto dealer who
is half-owner of Preakness and Belmont Stakes winner Risen Star, owns a
3-year-old filly named Willa On The Move, a 20-1 longshot in the
Breeder's Cup Distaff, about whom he sings:
"And then, she has a treat in store. She's going to meet Risen Star."
That meeting will take place in the breeding shed, not on the race
track.
In fact, that's where most of the top horses entered in yesterday's seven

Breeder's Cup races at Churchill Downs will head next year, win or lose.
It's why there's little continuity in racing for casual fans; this year's stars
disappear before the general public has a chance to appreciate them, to be
replaced by brand new names next year.
"The public wants heroes," says Jack Van Berg, trainer of Alysheba,
the favorite in the $3 million Classic. "We're not giving them many."

If you look at the photo closely, you'll see
that the Kaepa shoe's upper is actually two
independently moving parts.
This solves the problem of conventional
athletic shoes, which may fit perfectly when
{you're standing still, but distort when your
foot flexes, pinching down at the top of your
foot and bulging out at the heel.
When you move your foot, Kaepa's Action
44 Kaepa.
Independent Suspension For Your Foot.
For nearest retail locations, 1-800-233-4095, Ext.

HingeTM moves like a body joint, smoothly
mimicking your foot's flexing action.
The result is quicker, easier, more precise
footwork. And comfort that doesn't stop when
you start moving.
Kaepa makes shoes for tennis, aerobics, fit-
ness, and basketball.
So whatever your sport is, there's a Kaepa
that'll give you a $30,000 ride.
