A Michigan State University stu-
dent was taken to a Lansing hospital
Saturday night to be treated for gun
wounds resulting from a scuffle dur-
ing a weekend party, the second such
incident in the past year.
Two Detroit men were detained in
connection with the incident and will
face charges of attempted murder,
said East Lansing Police Department
Capt. Richard Murray.
The men were part of a group of
14 Detroiters who came to East
Lansing for the annual "Icebreaker
party. After being denied entrance for
lack ;ofstudent identification; the
group went to a private off-campus
party where the fight and shooting
The MSU student was shot twice
in thg leg. The group of Detroiters
tried to flee in four cars, but were
stopped by a police road block at I-
96 and M-59.
The incident took place a year
after the death of Robert Woolfolk, a
Detroit youth who was shot at the
time of last year's "Icebreaker" party.
Woolfolk was shot in connection
with a traffic argument.
Although both shootings oc-
curred at the same time as
"Icebreaker" parties, MSU Polic
Comtihnder Andrew McEntee does
not think they are related.
About 2,000 protesters in clenched fists gather near th
President Dan Quayle in Manila. The brief rally was la
and U.S. milih't4
MANILA, Philippines (AP) - Police hurled tear
gas yesterday to disperse 2,000 leftists demonstrating
against Vice President Dan Quayle and American mili-
s tary bases at Clark.
President Corazon Aquino accepted a U.S. offer to
discuss the bases' future.
Quayle called the ambush slayings of two American
civilians on Tuesday "cowardly murders" and said a ma-
jority of Filipinos want the bases to remain.
"Let me be direct: terrorists will not drive Americans
from the Philippines," he told U.S. troops and depen-
dents at Clark Air Base and the Subic Bay naval base,
the largest of the six American installations here.
Police fired tear gas after demonstrators refused to
end an anti-base rally near the presidential palace.
During Quayle's appearance, riot police drove back hun-
dreds of others who tried to march to the main gate at
Over 150 people were arrested for joining anti-
Quayle rallies in the capital. Opposition to the bases is
increasing among Filipinos because many see the facili-
ties as an infringement on national sovereignty.
Quayle met with Aquino early yesterday and gave her
a letter from President Bush regarding U.S. bases there.
Bush suggested in his letter that the two leaders start to
he presidential palace to protest the 3-day visit of Vice
ater dispersed by riot police.
St Quayle Visit
discuss extending the bases' leases which expire in
Aquino's executive secretary, Catalino Macaraig,
said the government had agreed to the talks and would
give Quayle formal notice before he leaves Thursday for
Any agreement on extending the bases' lease must
be ratified by two-thirds of the 23-member Senate,
where opposition to the bases is strong.
Aquino, who will visit Washington in November,
has refused to say whether she will support a lease ex-
In 1985, Aquino signed a manifesto calling for the
close of bases. This was a move to solidify the opposi-
tion against Ferdinand Marcos, who was the Philippine
president at that time. But after taking office in 1986,
Aquino said she would keep her options open.
After the meeting with Aquino, Quayle said, "I hope
that the people of the Philippines understand and appre-
ciate not only the special relationship, (but) the sense of
stability in the economic sense, stability in the sense of
hopefully seeing expanded economic opportunities and
development to the people of the Philippines."
During a courtesy call on Senate President Jovito
Salonga, Quayle urged senators to "r'emove the emo-
tionalism" from discussions about the bases.

Hugo victims call for govt. aid
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Thousands of Hurricane Hugo's vic-
tims lined up Wednesday for food, clothes and building supplies while of-
ficials pleaded with the Bush administration to cut federal red tape and get
aid to stricken areas.
"We're very appreciative for all the help. But if it could have been done
quicker and had been done quicker it would have been better," Mayor
Joseph P. Riley Jr. said. "I'm not sure the extent of the damage from
Hugo is understood yet at the federal level."
Riley, who earlier this week was full of praise for federal relief efforts,
told reporters he has had to seek help from Sen. Ernest Hollings, D-S.C.,
to get more military generators to provide electricity.
An estimated 233,000 utility customers in South Carolina remain
without power, more than half in the Charleston area.
From Washington, Hollings called officials with the Federal
Emergency Management Agency "a bunch of bureaucratic jackasses."
Canyon air crash kills 10
TUSAYAN, Ariz. (AP) - A sightseeing plane crashed into a wooded
hill near the Grand Canyon Airport yesterday, killing 10 people and injur-
ing the other 11 people aboard.
The aircraft's wings were sheared off by the tall ponderosa pines but
some passengers survived because the fuselage of the small two-engined
plane remained largely intact, said Sheriff Joe Richards. The two crew
members were killed, he said.
National Park Service Ranger Paul Crawford, who was among the first
to reach the wreckage, said some of the passengers were walking around
when he arrived at the scene on a small ridge about 300 yards east of a
"They were all shellshocked. They had that empty, dazed look," he
The airport is located about five miles south of the Grand Canyon.
The injured were taken by ambulance, airplane and helicopter to the
Flaggstaff Medical Center. Conditions of the injured ranged from serious
to critical with lacerations, fractures and head wounds.
Abortion researcher given
Lasker medical award
NEW YORK (AP) - America's most prestigious medical award was
given yesterday to Dr. Etienne-Emile Baulieu, developer of the controver-
sial French abortion pill; a decision criticized by anti-abortion activists.
Dr. Baulieu studied the workings of hormones for nearly 30 years be-
fore provoking an international ethical debate with his discovery of the
drug RU 486, which prevents a fertilized egg from developing into a
Baulieu's drug blocks pregnancy after conception by interfering with
the hormone progesterone, which is essential to the maintenance of preg-
nancy. Any egg that might have been fertilized and implanted in the lin-
ing is shed along with it.
The drug, reportedly being used for about 15 percent of elective abor-
tions in France, has not been approved in the United States, but it has
provoked a storm of controversy here nonetheless.
Abortions linked to sadness
LANSING, Mich. - College-age women who have undergone
abortions have a higher risk of suffering from depression than those who
deliver their babies or never become pregnant, said a survey released yes-
. The survey of 220 women found that 16 percent of those who had had
abortions were severely depressed. Five percent of the women who were
never pregnant showed signs of melancholy, while none of the women
who had actually delivered babies were depressed.
The researcher who did the survey said the results fall short of showing
abortion caused the women's depression.
"We can't say that for sure. It's really only an association, not a cause
and effect," said Dr. John Mesaros, a resident in the pediatrics and psychi-
atric departments at Michigan State University.
Amway a loser because of
death of Emperor Hirohito
ADA, Mich. - Japanese Emperor Hirohito's illness and death cut into
Amway Corp.'s sales growth for the fiscal year that ended Aug. 31,
company officials said.
Amway said growth in sales of its laundry and bath soaps and more
than 4,000 other home and personal care products dipped 7 percent for the
fiscal year following a 20 percent increase last year.
Commerce in Japan, a country that accounts for 35 percent of
Amway's business, slumped during Hirohito's illness, said William-
Nicholson, Amway's chief operating officer. "All activity in Japan came
to a stop because of that."
Amway-Japan shut down completely during the three-day mourning
period following Hirohito's death Jan. 7.
Without that impact, Nicholson estimated sales growth would have
been 12 percent.
