"strengthening the family."
"Minors are required to have
parental consent to get their ears

can get medical service without

But Bill Candler, Gov. James
Blanchard's assistant chief of staff,
said the Governor opposes any fur-
ther restrictions on abortion, includ-
ing the parental consent bill.
Blanchard has proposed new leg-
islation to restore Medicaid funding
fer abortion in case of rape or incest,
or'to protect the mental or physical
health of the mother.
However, pro-choice activists,
like Planned Parenthood Executive
lDirector Menin, oppose parental
consent for several reasons.
Menin said 65 percent of
teenagers who wish to get an abor-
tidn already have parental consent,
anfd those who do not usually have a

judges in the strange position of say-

abortion and therefore you must be-
ccme a parent."'
The second bill would require fe-
tus viability testing after 20 weeks
of pregnancy and prohibit public
finds, facilities, and employees to be
used to perform abortions.
Another proposed bill would pro-
hibit the use of public funds for
abortion counseling. Finally, a pro-
posed constitutional amendment
would prohibit all public employees

the University of Michigan does not
require resident advisers to check the
age of students seen with alcohol in
the residence halls.
"I am not there to tell (the hall
residents) how to live their lives,"
said University of Michigan
Resident Adviser Dean Meyer, an
engineering junior. "I don't want to
be a bouncer."
The MSU move has upset many
students on the East Lansing cam-
pus, said Susan Steinkle, executive
director of Associated Students of
MSU. "By changing the Residence
Life staff to policemen, now they are
enforcing the state law," she said. "If
the RAs are only seen as enforcers,
the students will probably be less
likely to talk to them. Doors will
stay closed. There will be less of a
community. Some RAs didn't come
back as a result. Even after meet-
ings, they weren't listened to."
MSU's new policy is only a
short addition to larger policies that
have been developing over the past
15 years, said Mary Haas, director of
University Housing Programs at
The new regulation comes under
General Student Regulations, and
states, "No student shall possess,
consume, furnish, manufacture, sell,
exchange or'otherwise distribute any
alcoholic beverage except as permit-

This regulation was paired with
implementation guidelines created by
University Housing Programs and
Judicial Affairs for the residence hall
staff. However, Steinkle criticized
the new guidelines, saying they were
created with little student input.

Circuit judge awards woman
custody of seven embryos
MARYVILLE, Tenn. - A woman fighting for control of seven
frozen embryos in an unprecedented divorce case was awarded temporary
custody yesterday by a judge who ruled that life begins at conception and
the woman should be allowed to carry them to term.
Blount County Circuit Judge W. Dale Young, ruling in favor of Mary
Sue David over her estranged husband, Junior Lewis Davis, declared that
their embryos were children, not property.
"I'm thrilled. It's definitely what I wanted," Mrs. Davis told a news
conference in Titusville, Fla., where she now lives.
Davis said he would appeal in the state court system, and potentially
"They are going to force me to become a father against my wishes," he
Mrs. Davis said she would not try to get pregnant before January.
"I'm waiting to see about the appeal, then hopefully after that try to
have a child," she said.
Bus accident kills at least 18
ALTON, Texas - A school bus, hit from behind by a delivery truck,
plunged into a watery gravel pit yesterday, killing at least 18 youngsters
and injuring 49 people, authorities said.
Divers pulled several bodies from the 12 feet of water nearly covering
the bus, which was carrying students to junior and senior high schools in
a nearby city when it tumbled into the 40- to 45-foot hole, authorities
Michael Cox, spokesperson for the Department of Public Safety, said
it was the worst school bus accident in Texas history.
The number of people aboard the bus was not immediately known.
The bus can hold 70, authorities said. The bus driver and truck driver were
being treated at hospitals, authorities said.
"We're going crazy here," said Firefighter Ruben Ortiz. He added that
ambulances were sent to an information center set up for parents. The par-
ents "are very hysterical. They have really lost control, some of them."
Survey: Keep surrogacy legal
DETROIT - The federal government shouldn't intervene in surrogate
motherhood contracts, according to the 1,211 adults polled nationwide, a
Detroit News survey published yesterday reported.
The survey, conducted by Washington-based Gordan S. Black Corp.,
found that 56 percent of the sample believed that the government should
not regulate surrogate arrangements; 27 percent said surrogacy should be
banned; 11 percent said it should be permitted but subject to government
regulation; 2 percent said it should be otherwise regulated; and 4 percent
The margin of error was 3 percentage points.
A majority of respondents said surrogacy should be available to
married couples or couples over 45. A minority said that the option
should be available to unmarried couples, homosexuals or fertile couples
who want to avoid natural pregnancy, the poll found.
Activist calls 1989 'worst
year ever' for civil rights
LANSING - Recent Supreme Court decisions have shattered the drive
for equality and it's up to Congress, the states and President Bush to re-
store it, a civil rights leader said yesterday.
"This year, 1989, will be remembered as the worst year ever for
women and minorities before the United States Supreme Court," said
Eleanor Holmes Norton, former chair of the U.S. Equal Employment
Norton said that it is ironic, considering this year marked the 25th an-
niversary of the Civil Rights Act and that prior to this year the high court
had interpreted it broadly to help promote equality.
Norton, a law professor at Georgetown University, said the conserva-
tives that President Reagan appointed to the court went out of their way
to gut affirmative action programs.
US, Soviets to meet in Mars
MARS, Pa. - It's official. The U.S. and Soviet astronauts are going
to Mars, and the Martians can't wait to greet them.
That's Mars, Pa. 16046. U.S.A. Earth.
Soviet Cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev arrives in Mars on Monday, by jet-
liner and car, for an eight-day visit to this community of about 1,800
humanoids about 25 miles north of Pittsburgh.
Krikalev, a flight engineer, will be joined Wednesday in Mars by Navy
Lt. Cmdr. Mario Runco Jr., a NASA astronaut.
The astronaut's mission is to teach Martian children about space and
Soviet-American friendship at school lunches and assemblies.
"It just seems natural when you live close to Mars. People here have a
lot of pride that our town is named after a planet, " said Bonnie Solino,
mother of the first Martian to invite spacemen to this sector of the solgr
