BEIRUT, Lebanon - At least
16 people, including Spain's
Ambassador to Lebanon Pedro
Manuel de Aristegui, were killed
yesterday in fierce artillery exchanges
etween Christians and an alliance of
Syrian and Moslem gunners, police
A police spokesperson said the
artillery and rocket duels of this 18-
hour blitz were among the most
intense in Lebanon's 14-year-old
civil war. At least 17 people died and
90. were wounded during the
Ferocious blitz. That raised the
casualty toll from 40 days of
fighting to at least 234 killed and
847 wounded.
He said that at one point shells
were "falling like rain" around the
hilltop presidential palace in the
Christian suburb of Baabda where
Christian leader Gen. Michel Aoun
lives, and the nearby Defense

The exchanges erupted after Aoun

The fighting has raged since
March 8 between Aoun's forces,
stimated at 20,000 mostly
Christian troops, and an alliance of
Syrian troops and militiamen of the
Druse Progressive Socialist Party.
It erupted after Aoun blockaded
militia-run harbors along Lebanon's
Mediterranean coast. The ports have
cost the government about $100
million a year in lost tax revenue,
because the militias levy customs
duties on imports through the ports.

Reforms demanded
after soccer riot

SHEFFIELD, England (AP) -
Lawmakers Sunday demanded
changes in stadium designs,
including a ban on anti-riot fences
after a mad rush at a soccer match
trapped thousands of fans behind one
of the steel barriers. At least 94
people died and 71 people were
hospitalized, many in extreme
Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher
visited H illsborough stadium and
promised a public inquiry into
Saturday's disaster, which turned a
soccer cup semifinal into a
Then she visited hospitalized
survivors and listened to their
accounts of Britain's worst sports
"We were shouting out to (the
police) to get us out and they just
couldn't move us," John Davis, who
was in the crowd told her."It was
sheer bedlam. It was every man for
himself.There were people screaming
and screaming."
Police defended the decision to
open 16-foot-wide steel gates outside
the stadium just as the match
between the Liverpool and

Nottingham Forest teams began.
Last minute arrivals then poured into
a central "standing room only"
section, pressing those already inside
against the steel mesh fence.
The sturdy 10-foot-high fence,
angled in at the top to stop people
from scaling it, prevented them from
escaping over the top to the field.
Some were crushed to death. Others
suffocated or were trampled trying to
fight their way out of the crowd or
when the barrier finally collapsed.
South Yorkshire's chief
constable, Peter Wright, said a
senior officer decided to open the
gates, "to save people's lives and to
relieve the crush outside."
An investigation was expected to
focus on allegations that some fans
entered the sold-out stadium, which
has a capacity of 54,000, without
tickets or with forged tickets, and
why so many were still outside as
the match began.
It was a third major soccer tragedy
in four years involving English
teams, which have been barred from
European soccer competition since:
May 1985 because of rioting by
Liverpool fans.

Associated Press
Fans are crushed against the fencing in the Liverpool enclosure at Hillsborough soccer stadium, Saturday,
where it is reported 108 died after a crush in the crowd . The game was stoped after six minutes of play.
WSU 'Study-ln conti nues;
both sides to meet today

Special to the Daily
DETROIT - Today marks the
sixth day Black students at Wayne
State University have occupied their
campus Student Services Building.
A mixture of tension and excite-
ment surrounds the area as close to
100 students study for finals, sleep,
or engage in heavy discussion inside
the building. Outside students who
support the protest, but who have
been denied from entering the build-
ing by police, have even camped

Daily Op. editor's
home vandalized

A brick was thrown through the
Iedroom window of one of the
Daily's Opinion Page Editor, Amy
Harmon, late Thursday night. A
message attached to the brick said,
"Lest you forget your people" and
was signed, "Fighters for the free-
dom of Israel," with the Star of
"It's really frightening. I'm be-
ginning to realize the lengths to
which people are willing to go to
ilence criticism of Israel," said
Harmon, an RC junior.
Other Daily editors have received
threatening phone calls. In addition,
the= Student Publications Building
was vandalized last month. Vandals
spray painted messages that read,
"Long Live Israel" and "Jew Haters
will pay."
"1 would certainly not know if the
-ncidents were directly related," said
niversity Provost and Vice Presi-
dent of Academic Affairs Charles
Vest. "It is clear that the theme is
the same unfortunately. I must very
strongly deplore this incident as I
would any other occurrence that ap-
pears to stifle open discourse on our

Ann Arbor Patrol Officer David
Strauss, who was on duty when the
incident occurred, said that there are
no leads. There is a strong possibil-
ity, Strauss said, that the incidents
could be related because of the mes-
sage on the brick but, "as far as a
definite connection, it is impossible
to know."
Harmon said, "I'm particularily
disturbed that the message seemed to
be from other Jews aimed at me as a
Jew. I don't think that the Jewish
community should allow these tac-
tics of intimidation to continue."
Controversy about Daily editori-
als has been ongoing this semester.
In February, the Daily was protested
by about 200 people, who said that
some of the editorials were anti-
After the protest, a forum was set
up by Editor-in-Chief Adam
Schrager for representatives from the
Jewish community and several Daily
editors to discuss the editorials. Both
sides said "a greater understanding"
had been reached at the forum which
took place on March 8. However,
many participants in the forum held
a press conference several weeks ago
to discuss repeated problems with
Daily editorials.

alongside the high glass windows
near the blockaded entrance.
Bright spotlights are beamed in
the eyes of approaching visitors and
only members of the press, various
security forces, and the leadership of
the protest are being admitted into
the building by the contingent of
police, only one of which is Black,
guarding the main entrance.
The "study-in," as the
demonstrating students refer to it,
developed after a number of demands
went unmet by WSU president
David Adamany last Wednesday. In-
creased recruitment of Black stu-
dents, more courses which empha-
size "Africana," and the upgrading of
the African American Studies Center
to departmental status, were included
in a list of demands put together by
a coalition of several Black student
groups, including WSU's Pan
African Student Association.
Darrell Dawsey, one of the stu-
dents who has done much of the or-
ganizing and public speaking for the
students, said publicly last week that
"all we want to do is study our his-
tory - not his story -- but our

"We're not slaves anymore. We are
men and women. From now on,
we're going to take our respect --
by any means necessary."
Adamany, who responded to the
students demands on Friday by say-
ing, "some of your proposals are in-
teresting, some are complicated, and
some, quite frankly, we don't quite
understand." Many of the students
involved in the study-in said they
felt insulted and angered by the pres-
ident's response.
While the administration and stu-
dents had planned to meet again on
Friday afternoon, they did not be-
cause of a failure to compromise on
the location. Students and WSU ad-
ministrators have agreed to try again
