Michigamua is one of the few
campus groups recognized by and
directly accountable to the regents.
*MSA is another such organization.
Melissa Lopez, Secretary of the
Native American Student Associa-
tion, said as of yesterday they were
still not sure that the group spotted
on Monday was in fact Michigamua.
She added that "(the members of the
association) deplore any representa-
tion of Native American culture that
In October the MSA passed a
unanimous resolution to derecognize
Michigamua as a student organiza-
tion because of offensive actions to-
ward Native Americans, and also be-
cause the group has been accused of
being anti-Semitic and elitist.
Last spring Harris said he, along
with two other MSA members, wit-
nessedmembers of Michigamua
"imitating Indians" in public. He
said they were pounding on drums
with painted faces and "whooping."
MSA representatives LSA junior
Heide Hayes and LSA sophomore
Nick Maverick said they both wit-
nessed the Michigamua rites outside
the Fleming Building.

The Coast Guard said it planed to'
deploy a flotilla of 30 fishing boats
from Seward and six from Kodiak,
along with the Coast Guard cutter
Morganthau, to drag small-holed
herring and shrimp nets through the
leading edge of the slick.
Coast Guard Capt. Joe Blackett
said tests Monday showed the nets
break the oil into mall globs, which
don't reform. The operation may not

said. "We need to start leading envi-
ronmentally conscious lives."
The group feels Exxon's apology
was not sufficient for the amount of
damage that was caused. To signify
this, they burned a copy of Exxon's
published apology. "It was totally
inadequate," said Foerderer. "The ac-
cident never should have happened in
the first place, so no apology could
possibly compensate.d t
Schultz said she hadn't slept well
for days thinking about the tragedy,
but holding the vigil has made her
feel better. "I feel better just know-
ing other people care."

Helicopter crashes while working
on high-rise building in Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE - A helicopter being used to work on a high-rise
building crashed yesterday morning near the Lake Michigan shore, but the
pilot escaped serious injury, authorities said.
Ben Moore, 43, of Elmhurst, Ill., was taken to the Milwaukee County
Medical Complex, where he was treated for cuts to the leg and face, said
hospital spokeswoman Pam Hansen.
The helicopter went down around 10:25 a.m. next to the U.S. Coast
Guard Station on Milwaukee's south side.
A Milwaukee Fire Department dispatcher said the crash occurred as the
pilot was trying to remove an air-conditioning unit from the top of a 25-
A homemade videotape showed the helicopter going out of control
suddenly while lowering the unit.
Police crack down in Soviet republic
MOSCOW -=- Police arrested hundreds of people yesterday and seized
tens of thousands of hunting rifles from Soviet Georgians in an attempt
to calm the republic.
Tanks, armored personnel carriers and soldiers patrolled the streets of
the southern republic's capital, Tbilisi, to enforce a ban on public gather-
ings and an 11 p.m. to 6 p.m. curfew.
President Mikhail Gorbachev told Hans-Jochen Vogel, the head of the
West German Social Democratic Party, that he considered it a "sacred"
principle that Georgians and others have the right to express their opin-
ions freely, but the law set limits on their actions.
Yesterday was declared a day of mourning to mark what the Georgian
Communist Party leader, Djhumber Patiashvili, called "a common grief"
- the deaths of civilians killed in a clash Sunday with soldiers and police
at the pro-independence demonstration.
Nine die in Illinois apartment fire
PEORIA, Ill. - Fire swept through an apartment house early
yesterday, killing seven children and two young mothers. Investigators
were seeking to question a visitor who left the building shortly before the
fire broke out.
The three other occupants of the building were injured, two of them
seriously. Officials said the cause was under investigation and stressed the
man being sought was not a suspect.
The blaze started about 2 a.m. on the first floor and had engulfed the
two-story, wood-frame structure by the time firefighters responded.
"The fire was just blazing all of a sudden...I can't remember hearing
(noise) or anything," said Rhonda Tracy, a relative of several of the
victims who lived across the street and was first to call the fire department
at 2:20 a.m.
"I had never seen people come out burned like that," she continued. "It
was just hysterical."
Congress alters Bush S&L plan
WASHINGTON - A house banking panel battled yesterday over pro-
posals to weaken the heart of the Bush administration's savings and loan
bailout plan by diluting a requirement that S&L owners back loans with
more of their own money.
In the first of a planned series of votes on proposed tougher capital
standards, the House Banking subcommittee on financial institutions
adopted, 30-17, a weakening amendment offered by Rep. Bill McCollum
The administration wants to encourage S&Ls to get out of areas such
as real estate and insurance by requiring owners to back those investments
entirely with their own capital. McCollum's amendment exempts healthy
thrifts already engaged in those businesses from the stricter standard.
Rep. Jim Leach (R-Iowa), argued against the change, saying risky ar-
eas not traditionally part of S&L's business helped push the industry into
Mort exudes some class for a change
ALBANY, N.Y. - Morton Downey Jr.'s television act may be all
finger-pointing and shouting, but his behavior off the show is a shock:
Showing little of the swagger that characterizes his syndicated talk
show, Downey dueled a former lawyer for the Federal Communications
Commission Monday on government regulations of broadcasting.
The conclusion? Civilized minds may differ.
"I might like filet mignon and you might like hot dog," Downey said
at a forum celebrating the bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution. "No one
can dictate good taste."
Downey said the government shouldn't decide what people can listen
to while his couter part, lawyer Bruce Fein, argued that the government
needed to take a more active role in making suie television doesn't
descend into bad taste.
Despite disagreements, the two were quite civil during the discussion.
Fein was even kind about Downey's show.
