tion and that athletic administrators
have not discussed it.
Berenson said the team members
did not violate any team rules. "We
don't want (the players) going to
bars," he said. "They know that. We
don't tell them how to talk to girls.
We expect them to behave."
While Berenson sees the incident
as "serious for the boys involved,"
sault charge, or rape. But it's still
serious and it's all in perspective."
Berenson would not say what
possible punitive measures will be
taken against the players.
A few hours after their arraign-
ment, the students had delivered to
the Daily a letter of apology to the
women and the University commu-
nity. In it they wrote, "We had no
intention to frighten or harass any-
one, but we now realize that what
we did was offensive. Our only ex-
planation is that we are young and
acted impulsively.
But the women who say they
were victims of the harassment did
not appear reassured. One of the
wonen said, "It was absolutely clear

that their only intention was to ha-
rass us." Her friend, who said she
was also harassed by the men, added,
"I question whether or not they
actually regret what happened, or-if
they just regret that they were
caught.".
The women said they have been
very disturbed by the extent of focus
on the fact that the men were mem-
bers of the hockey team, and that
they were intimidated by pressing
charges for the assault partly for that
reason.
"There's always this feeling when
it comes to sexual harassment that
women should just ignore it and it'll
go away somehow," one victim said.
Julie Steiner, director of the Uni-
versity's Sexual Assault Prevention
and Awareness Center, said harass-
ment victims "often do feel as
though they're taking on the whole
team or the whole fraternity."
Steiner explained that because
women so often seem to be blamed,
or feel they are blamed, for speaking
out about crimes of violence against
them as the victims in this case
said they felt in pressing charges
against hockey team members - it
is understandable when such crimes
are rarely reported.

Quayle backs
govt. pay raises

WASHINGTON (AP) - Vice
President-elect Dan Quayle gave un-
qualified support yesterday to the
controversial 50 percent pay raise for
Congress, federal judges and the
Cabinet.
Quayle made his comments in an
interview with The Associated Press
as a Washington Post poll showed
that eight out of 10 Americans op-
pose raising the salaries of members
of Congress from $89,500 to
$135,000.
Quayle, who served four years in
the House and eight years in the
Senate, appeared to take a somewhat
different stand than his new boss,,
President-elect Bush. On Jan. 6,
Bush said he supported President
Reagan's endorsement of the 50 per-
cent pay raise but added he may take
another look at the issue after be-
coming president.
Quayle did not qualify his en-
dorsement. "I support President
Reagan's decision to send that up to

Meese
Continued from Page 1
Attorney General Dick Thornburgh disagreed with
one aspect of the report, saying that Meese's failure to
dispose of his financial interest in the regional Bell
companies resulted from a failure to get adequate legal
advice rather than from intent to violate ethics stan-
dards.
At the-White House, spokesperson Marlin Fitzwa-
ter said President Reagan believes "this report was un-
necessary, partly because Mr. Meese has not been in
the office for some time and partly because it was un-
warranted."

Fitzwater said Reagan believes his longtime friend
did nothing wrong.
The former attorney general, who resigned last year,
immediately attacked the report through his attorneys,
who called it "a travesty of justice." Meese spokesper-
son Patrick Korten said there is an "emotional under-
tone" to the report that seems designed "to slam him
personally."
Meese, according to the report, violated ethical
standards which require government employees to
avoid the appearance of impropriety when carrying out
official duties. But Korten said such a requirement is "a
lousy standard."

Capitol Hill. I know it's a lot but I
think he thought long and hard. I
support his decision."
The pay raise plan will take effect
next month unless Congress vetoes
or modifies it.
Under the proposal that Reagan
endorsed, the president's salary
would rise from $200,000 to
S350,000 and the vice president's
would go up from $115,000 to
$175,000. However, the Constitu-
tion prevents Bush from getting an
increase for the term to which he
was elected, and presumably Quayle
would be covered by the same
prohibition.
Quayle will be sworn in with
Bush in ceremonies Friday. Quayle
said he will model his job after the
way Bush performed it, refusing to
discuss publicly what they talk
about in private. He said he would
not speak up in Cabinet meetings or
when other people are present, giv-
ing his views to Bush alone.
POLICE
NOTES
Trapped in the Chem.
Building
Two men who said they were
trapped in a Chemistry Building
freight elevator were interviewed for
illegal entry and released by Ann
Arbor police Monday, Sgt. Sherry
Vail said yesterday.
Vail said University public safety
officers found and detained the men
at about 2 a.m. on Dec. 16. The
men say they used the building as a
short pass to a bus shelter on N.
University St, Vail said.
The police report did not indicate
whether the men were University
students, Vail said, adding that po-
l ice are conducting an investigation.
The University will have to decide
whether to file charges against the
men, Vail said. - Monica Smith

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Israel toughens army stance
JERUSALEM - The Israeli army began a tougher policy against
Arab stone throwers yesterday, blowing up the homes of three suspects
and saying soldiers could fire more freely to quell violent protests in the
Palestinian uprising.
Three Palestinians died yesterday and 16 were wounded in clashes with
troops in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, Arab reports said.
Army officials confirmed the deaths.
Some Israeli reserve soldiers confronted Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir and said they were forced to beat innocent people and betray their
nation's values to maintain order. Shamir said the Palestinians were in-
tent on destroying Israel and the the soldiers must defend their homeland.
U.S. Officials have condemned the practice. They say it violates hu-
man rights by punishing people without trial. State Department
spokesperson Dennis Hartner said the United States was deeply concerned
over the rising number of deaths. "Restraint is called for now," he said.
Children slain in schoolyard
STOCKTON, Calif. - A man wearing combat fatigues opened fire
with an automatic rifle at children in an elementary school yard yesterday
and then invaded classrooms. Five children, all refugees from Southeast
Asia, were killed and 30 people wounded before the gunman killed him-
se'.
Deputy Police Chief Ralph Tribble said the gunman, dressed in battle
gear and wearing a flak jacket, set his car on fire as a diversion before en-
tering the campus at about 11:40 a.m. PST with two handguns and a
Russian-made AK-47 assault rifle.
Bruce Fernandes, a spokesperson for the San Joaquin County Office of
Emergency Services, said six people were killed, including the gunman,
and 30 wounded, most of tem pupils. Deputy Police Chief Lucian
Neely said at least 15 of the wounded were in critical condition.
Neely said police had "no idea" of a motive.
Federal engineers suspect
defects in Fiero engines
WASHINGTON --- Federal engineers have opened an investigation of
allegations that nearly 150,000 1985-1986 Pontiac Fieros are prone to
fires in the engine compartment, a government agency said yesterday.
The preliminary evaluation, the lowest level of safety probe conducted
by the agency, was one of seven announced by the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration.
NHTSA said it had received 16 unconfirmed complaints of fires in the
engine compartments of the Fieros, made by General Motors Corp. One
of the alleged incidents resulted in an injury, NHTSA said.
The new investigation affects about 147,000 vehicles, NHTSA said.
In November 1987, NHTSA ordered the recall of 125,000 1984 Fieros
after a 16-month investigation into alleged engine-compartment fires.
"Just because there is an inquiry doesn't mean there is a defect," said
John Anderson, GM spokesperson in Washington.
Officials halt jail program
LANSING - Development of SuperMax, a get-tough program for the
worst inmates in Michigan's prisons, has been delayed indefinitely be-
cause a court order would limit its impact, prison officials have decided.
A key change needed to make the program work, a drastic reduction in
the personal property that inmates would be allowed to have in their cells,
has been temporarily halted in the courts.
SuperMax, designed from a similar program at the federal penitentiary
in Marion, Illinois, would deprive inmates of most of the limited privi-
leges given maximum -security prisoners.
The restrictive clothing and property policies, adopted under state
emergency rules signed in October, are blocked by an order from Ingham
County Circuit Judge James Giddings because of a lawsuit by several in-
mates.
Bolden said SuperMax would give prison officials more control over
the behavior of a small number of prisoners, who continue to commit
crimes, especially assaults.
EXTRAS
Radio DJ takes extra long
snack break during show
IOWA CITY - When disc jockeys gather to share their horror stories
about sore throats or giving the wrong call letters, Daryl Berryhill proba-
bly will have the topper.
Berryhill, the 19-year-old late-night DJ for KKRQ-FM, stepped outside
to get a snack from his car at about 12:40 a.m. Monday and found that
the station door had locked behind him.
After the last song ended, there were 45 minutes of silence.
A friend of Berryhill's, who arrived just after the lockout, called the
sheriff's office. By the time deputies arrived, Berryhill had broken glass in

one back door and pried open a security cage, but had been unable to open
a second set of doors leading to the studio.
To add injury to insult, he cut himself on the broken glass.
As broadcasting pitfalls go,"It's one of the worst," said KKRQ's
morning personality Ted Burton Jacobson. Still, he said, it could happen
to anybody.
"Maybe the next time he gets hungry, he'll get somebody to deliver,"
Jacobson said.
