U' fans
ready to
. head for
Roses
BY MATT KLEBAN
Most Wolverine fans will satisfy
tpemselves by huddling in front of
the TV on January 2 to watch the
Rose Bowl. But for a few, the living
room is just not close enough;
they're heading to Pasadena.
While traveling 2,500 miles to
see a football game might seem a bit
fanatical to most people, Charlie
Cole, an LSA senior, disagrees. "I
think everyone should go to the
Rose Bowl once before they gradu-
ate," he said.
Others echoed Cole. "I'm a senior
and this is probably the last chance I
will have to see the Rose Bowl
live," said Beth Anne Spar, an Art
School senior.
Although Eric Hammerling, an
LSA junior, will not be graduating
this year, two of his favorite players
will be. "The Rose Bowl will be the
last time I will be able to see Mark
Messner and John Kolesar playing in
a Michigan uniform."
Football will be the top priority
on everyone's minds, but travellers
will see more than just a football
game in Southern California this
January. Steve Woroniecki, an engi-
neering senior, said he expects "a
week of partying and laying out in
the sun" in addition to the game.
The University is sponsoring a
student/faculty/staff full package tour
with prices ranging from $799 per
person, triple hotel occupancy, to
$088, single hotel occupancy. Ap-
plications for the tour can be made 9
aim.-6 p.m. weekdays through De-
cember 2, on the ground level of the
Union.
Individual game tickets, which
cost $41, will be sold separately
from the tour packages from 8 a.m.
to 5 p.m. November 28-30 at the
Athletic Dept. Ticket Office, 1000
S. State St.
The University has been given
21,000 tickets to sell for the Rose
Bsowl.

Chomsky

BY PAUL de ROOIJ
AND JONATHAN SCOTT
Noam Chomsky's revolutionary
linguistic work earned him the Ky-
oto Prize in basic science last Tues-
day.
Chomsky, professor of linguis-
tics at the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, received the award -
considered the "Japanese Nobel
Prize" - honoring its sole recipient
with $350,000.
"Chomsky def-
initely deserves
this prize. He
changed radically
the way that we
describe the nature
of language, and
the way that peo-
ple think about
how the mind op-
erates," said

Chomsky is also widely known
for his contributions in psycholin-4
guistics. He argues that there exists
an innate language mechanism, and
language is a window to perception,

former student and a former Univer-
sity professor.

Speaker addresses idea
of Jewish sovereignty

BY JESSICA STRICK
The conflict between moderniza-
tion and religious traditions causes a
conflict within Israeli society which
cannot be ignored, said Jewish femi-
nist Leah Shakdiel last night at the
Hillel auditorium.
"There needs to be a place that
deals with the application of ideol-
ogy to society and reflects on how
the idealogy needs to be interpreted
and reevaluated for real life," said
Shakdiel to the group of about 80.
"We want modernization, but
don't want to lose human aspects of
tradition. The traditionalists are often
very jealous of the modern world but
at the same time there is a certain
type of Jewish warmth which is
heartening."
Shakdiel explained that the idea

ment.
"He developed a
theoretical model
which explains
how humans are
able to understand
a sentence that
they have never
seen before."

of building Israel can be handicapped
by some traditionalist values. Tradi-
tionalists don't want political power
and responsibility to be the
undertaking of people who cannot
understand everyone.
There must be some responsibil-
ity for individuals yet at the same
time, Jewish sovereignty, as well as
personal independence, can scarcely
be achieved when responsibility is
placed in the hands of only a few
people, Shakdiel said.
Often people will rely too heav-
ily on leaders and people of influ-
ence. "The paternalistic society
should be abolished to create a sys-
tem in which everyone can be equal
from the start," she said.
People should contribute to soci-
ety of they want to be considered

equal to everyone else, she said.
Orthodox feminists do exist. Re-
ligious rituals can be conducted in-
dependently, there can be more inte-
gration of men and women in syna-
gogues, and women can be taught
the Torah as, frequently as Jewish
men.
"All people are created equal by
God, and therefore we all share the
same duties and people must respect
each other."
Shakdiel said that the current
Arab-Israeli conflict cannot be re-
duced to saying that non-Jews hate
Jews, and that Jews hate non-Jews.
"We can draw on our heritage to
elaborate the idea of how to live
with other people. There needs to be
a covenant between the two en-
tities."

sky's linguistic
theory is that it is
descriptive, mean-
ing that it focuses:
on what people
say; the alterna-
tive, proscriptive
linguistics, looks
at what people
. should say.
"Descriptive
linguistics leads to
a natural way of~
recognizing peo,,f~#,
ple's rights,"
Napoli said. This,,,,
attitude implieĀ§ ,
that "if you're go-..,
ing to be aR
responsible aca*
nsky demic, then you're:_
tigious honor going to be
politically active."
A prolific writer, Chomsky is'
also know for his numerous books..
criticizing the role of the U.S. gov-
ernment and media during the war in
Vietnam, the genocide in East
Timor, and the situations in Israel
and Nicaragua. His latest book, co-
authored with Edward Herman, is
Manufacturing Consent.
Because of both Chomsky's lin-
guistic work and political writings,
the New York Times in 1978 called
Chomsky "the most important
intellectual alive."
Chomsky has also left a lasting
impression on those that have met
him.

Chomsky's ideas are controversial
because they displace the previously
popular behaviorist model for lan--
guage learning.
"But the people that disagree with
him would not have been able to
state the issues without him," Toon
said. "His work is controversial, but
it is more interesting than
controversial. No one can ignore his
work."
His most important work, Syn-
tactic Structure, published in 1957,
"contained a tremendous idea," Toon

Researcher says

Pornography not only reflects the sexism
in society, but promotes and partakes in the
subordination of and violence against women,
said writer and radical feminist Andrea
Dworkin in a speech Friday.
Today's pornography industry, a $10 bil-
lion a year business, is protected by the First
Amendment. Claiming freedom of expres-
sion, purveyors of pornography produce im-
ages of women being violently raped, beaten,
dismembered, hung, penetrated by animals,
guns, knives and defecated upon, Dworkin

"When people talk about pornography as a
form of freedom, that is what they are talking
about," Dworkin said.
The level of sadism in .crimes against
women is growing and mimicking the sadism
in pornography. Also, the average age of a
rapist is going down, Dworkin said.
She cited studies showing that 65 to 75
percent of women in pornography were
abused as children, most are poor, and virtu-
ally all became involved with pornography as
children. Many are forced into pornography
by pimps, and others are blackmailed. The
screams of those hurt by pornography are not
being heard, and the First Amendment does
not help them, she said.

"basic concept" of the policy, but
made suggestions for change in sev-

-specifying definitions of verbal
harassment, such as intent, repeti-
tion of the offense, and singling out
individual targets;
