Drive raises funds for anti-rape rally

BY MONICA SMITH
A nickel, a dime, a quarter.
They are small amounts, but
they're just a drop in the bucket to
help women fight against sexual as-
sault.
The two-day bucket drive for the
Take Back The Night march. and
rally began yesterday and runs
through today. The bucket drive is
1the primary fundraiser for the event,
sponsored by the Ann Arbor Coali-
tion Against Rape.
"The purpose of the march and
rally is to protest the violence
against women and children, specifi-
cally incest and sexual assault," said
Elizabeth Clare, a member of the
coalition.
"It is symbolic of taking back our

whole lives as women," Clare said.
"We are taking back the right to be
free from sexual assault."
"It's an issue I think everyone
should be concerned about and aware
of," said LSA junior Jeff Zoellner,
who was collecting on the Diag
yesterday.-"I think everyone should
devote some time to an issue .that
concerns them."
The 10th annual Take Back the
Night rally and march will be held
April 15 in front of the Federal
building. The rally is open to all,
but usually only women participate
in the march to symbolize their
unity and strength together.
The money raised in the bucket
drive covers the costs of the demon-
stration. The coalition plans to use

the money to pay the $500 for the
liability insurance necessary to ob-
tain a permit from the city. The
money will also go toward public-
ity, such as printing brochures and
posters promoting the event, and to
pay some of the speakers' and enter-
tainers' expenses.
Clare said the bucket drive needs
to raise $2,000 to cover the expenses
and have a cushion for next year's
rally.
The majority of the bucket drive
collectors, stationed throughout
campus and other Ann Arbor areas
yesterday and today, are student vol-
unteers. Members of the Univer-
sity's Sexual Assault Prevention and
Awareness Center are working to
collect money for the drive.

"I want to help people to become
aware of the situation of rape on
campus," said Charise Edwards, a
first-year LSA student and a member
of SAPAC, who was collecting for
the bucket drive. "I hope I'm doing
my part by participating in SAPAC
and the bucket drive, to help bring
about that awareness."
Lynne Whitney, a member of the
bucket drive committee, said the
fundraising drive went better than
she expected, but that the group
needs more volunteers to enable the
drive to collect from as many areas
as possible.
Clare said the name "Take Back
the Night" comes from the fear
women have had to walk the streets
alone at night.

FDA tells grocers to remove Chilean fruit

_ . _ ,. ___ ... _ . _ .,.r.

BY STACEY GRAY
Ann Arbor produce sellers were advised to re-
move all Chilean fruit from their shelves yester-
day after the Food and Drug Administration an-
nounced that traces of cyanide were found in two
'ted seedless grapes in Philadelphia.
"As far as we know the problem is limited to
Philadelphia but the warning is to everyone,"
said Joe Impellizzeri, acting consumer affairs of-
ficer at the FDA in Detroit.
Ann Arbor fruit marketers, however, said the
FDA instruction had little effect on their stocks.
"We just had to pull our grapes. Everything else
we had isn't from Chile," said Lynda Carey, a.
cashier at the White Market grocery store on
William St.
"At this point we've just pulled all the

Chilean fruit and are holding it," said Larry Re-
ichenbaugh, store manager at the Kroger on
Broadway. "We've gotten all kinds of returns at
this point and there is no problem with that."
Kroger stores usually stock Chilean grapes,
nectarines, plums and peaches at this time of the
year, said Gunther Urban, manager of the Jackson
Rd.-store.
FDA officials said there is no need for concern
about recently-eaten fruit because cyanide
poisoning shows its effects immediately. How-
ever, they suggested that people who have
bought any -Chilean fruit return it or throw it
away.
Impellizzeri said the fruit shipments from
Chile were closely scrutinized after the U.S.

ing the fruit was poisoned.
"When the fruit was examined they noticed a
couple of grapes in Philadelphia were discolored
and there appeared to be a ring where a puncture
was," said Impellizzeri.
. Chile imports much of the fruit eaten at this
time of the year, including peaches, raspberries,
blueberries, blackberries, seedless watermelons,
cantaloupes, Juan Canary and honeydew melons,
nectarines, quince, cactus pears, plums, and
Granny Smith green apples. Grapes constitute
two-thirds of the Chilean fruit imported to the
United States, according to the FDA.
"What we are doing is working closely with
the American Produce Association who in turn
are notifying the individual chains," said Impel-
lizzeri.

constructive planning could take
place without one group feeling
dominated by a majority.
Kavnatsky, a Rackham represen-
tative, in introducing the resolution,
said he appreciated the constituents'
comments, but said the issue was
not "whether or not the conference
should have occurred," but "whether
or not a law has been violated."
Specifically, he criticized the
conference for inviting Arab stu-
dents, while not inviting Jewish

students "of the same Semitic race."
Mistele said his intent was not to
derecognize UCAR, but to bring at-
tention to the current law. "The
constitution states MSA will not
' allow discrimination from any
group," he said, "However, I believe
that discrimination' must exist in
' order for minority groups to remain
minority groups."
' UCAR member Barbara Ransby
told the four who drafted the resolu-
tion, that they "don't know the
meaning of excluded" and that she
' was "shocked at the audacity" of
those who, called the conference re-
verse racism.

INBRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Discovery mission may land early
SPACE CENTER, Houston - A problem with a hydrogen tank
aboard the space shuttle Discovery forced its astronauts to conserve energy
yesterday, and threatened to shorten the mission, but Mission Control
said there was no threat to the crew.
The problem was an erratic pressure reading on one of three liquid
hydrogen tanks.
Hydrogen is combined with oxygen in fuel cells to produce electricity
for the shuttle systems.
"There are no safety problems associated with it and no electrical
problems," ground control capsule communicator Mike Baker told the as-
tronauts.
If the problem can't be resolved and the Discovery has to continue to
use only two hydrogen tanks, the shuttle may land Friday instead of Sat-
urday, flight director Branvil Pennington said.
Pennington said NASA could wait as late as Thursday before deciding
to end the mission a day early.
Emotions flare in North trial
WASHINGTON - Former National Security Adviser Robert McFar-
lane, his face red and his eyes filling with tears, lashed out at the
prosecutor in the Oliver North trial yesterday when asked about a letter he
wrote Congress on the day before he tried to commit suicide.
In the letter, McFarlane told Rep. Lee Hamilton (D-Ind.), then chair of
the House Intelligence Committee, that a foreigner had offered to con-
tribute $5 million to the Nicaraguan Contras in a May 1984 meeting.
The first openly emotional moment at the North trial, now in its sec-
and month, was triggered by chief prosecutor John Reker who suggested
to McFarlane that his Feb. 8, 1987 letter to Hamilton , was "just com-
plete nonsense."
McFarlane had known for two years that the offer came from the gov-
ernment of Saudi Arabia through its ambassador and that the country do-
nated $32 million to the Contras starting in 1984.
$10.7 billion withdrawal
from S&L's breaks record.
WASHINGTON - The January controversy turned around a Bush
administration proposal to levy a fee on deposits causing depositors to
withdraw a record $10.7 billion from savings and loans yesterday.
Four out of the nation's five S&L's experienced net withdrawal in
January, which exceeded net withdrawals for all of 1988.
James Barth, chief economist of the Federal Home Loan Bank Board,
attributed the bulk of these withdrawals to the failure of S&L's to keep
up with rising interest rates.
He added that another portion of the withdrawals occurred because of a
deliberate strategy by regulators to shrink ailing institutions. However,
Barth also acknowledged that some of the outflows were caused by confi-
dence problems as publicity mounted about the condition of the industry.
A preliminary estimate shows withdrawals easing only slightly in
February to between $8 billion and $9 billion.
Bush's min. wage proposal rejected
WASHINGTON - Ignoring a veto threat by the administration, a
House committee rejected President Bush's minimum wage proposal yes-
terday and instead joined a Senate panel in backing legislation calling for
a bigger increase.
The Democrat-controlled House Education and Labor Committee voted
22-13 along party lines to reject Bush's call to raise the minimum from
$3.35 an hour to $4.25 by 1992 while allowing employers to pay new
workers $3.35 an hour for their first six months on the job.
Then, by the same vote, the committee sent to the full'House legisla-
tion to increase the minimum wage to $4.65 an hour through three an-
nual increases. The legislation, without the "training wage" that Bush
says must be included, is almost identical to a bill the Senate Labor
Committee passed last week.
EXTRAS
80-year-olds rekindle the flame
DUMAS, Texas - Pauline Hobgood and Raymond Smith married
more than 60 years ago and were divorced 35 years later. Smith, 81, re-
married once and Hobgood, 80, remarried twice.
However, they remained friends and on Saturday they were married
again in a ceremony before dozens of relatives and friends in the Dumas
Nursing Center.
Hobgood said they never lost touch.
"One time I even kept his money for him while he was in the hospi-
tal."
"They're making my brother and I very happy by remarrying," said

Norma Jean Stewart, the couple's daughter. "The family has always hoped
they would get back together."
The ring used in 1928, which Hobgood continued to wear on her right
hand, was used again in their wedding on Saturday.
Several days before the wedding, residents and staff members gave Ms.
Hobgood a bridal shower, while the male residents, not to be outdone,
treated Smith to a bachelor party.

national flag and played the Pales-
tinian national anthem, "Beladi-Be-
ladi" - "My Homeland."
"As long as the Israeli govern-
ment allows its culture to flourish,
ours should too," said LSA sopho-
more Dina Khouri, one of the
protesters. "All we're asking for is
equity and parity."
Zubin Mehta, the Music Director
and Conductor of the Israeli Phil-
harmonic was aware of the protest
and said he had read their flier. "This
is a college campus; those things are
to be expected. But I would hope
that if an Egyptian or Ethiopian or-
chestra played here, that Jewish stu-
dents wouldn't protest that."
While several concert-goers re-
fused the fliers, others acknowledged
the protestors' right to demonstrate
outside the concert.
"They have a right to be here, but
I don't really agree with them," said
John-Paul Belinger, an engineering
first-year student. "I just ignored it."
Gayle Liber, an Israeli citizen
who attended the concert, said, "I
don't think they know the facts.
They've never had it so good. It cer-
tainly wasn't as good when they
were under Arab control."
But Residential College first-year
student Jodi Abramson said she
wasn't at all offended by the demon-
stration. "I think it's great that
they're protesting. Their point is
well-taken," she added.

say one possible way of getting
money for such a scholarship would
be to lobby the private sector. In re-
turn for donating money for tuition,
companies could come to the Uni-
versity to recruit graduating students
with the help of MS A.
Although Williams supports re-
cruiting more minorities to the Uni-
versity, he said some students may
be deterred from coming if a required
class on racism is instituted.
People who support the class "are
setting standards and viewpoints for
people who aren't here yet," he said.
