Station t irfo


by Daniel Poux
Today, as you stroll through the
Union on the way to class or the
Mug, look around for some impor-
tant looking people talking into mi-
crophones, with the absence of any
speakers or guitars in the back-
WXYT-AM 1270 will be broad-
casting live their format of inter-
views and sportstalk all day from the
Michigan Union Grill.
Station officials hope to solicit
student feedback about Saturday's
Michigan-Michigan State football
game, and will travel to East
Lansing to do tomorrow's broadcast.
"The college atmosphere is a
wonderful atmosphere, and what bet-
ter time to highlight Michigan's col-
leges," said WXYT Executive
Producer Joan Cherry Isabella.
Isabella said the station will be
broadcasting from the Union from 6

Detroit-based WXYT to talk
with 'U' students, stars

a.m. to 7 p.m. and will talk to many
well-known Michigan sports figures.
An hour with Jerry Lockhardt,
Director of the Michigan Marching
Band, and Bo's Boosters, a men's
glee club affiliated with the football
program, will start the day.
Following that, morning personality
John McCulloch will be talking to
students about the football game and
other sporting events.
McCulloch will go on later in
the show to interview basketball
coach Steve Fischer and senior guard
Rumeal Robinson about last year's
national championship and the up-

coming Wolverine basketball sea-
The programming will also deal
with several women's issues at the
University. From 7 a.m. to 8 a.m.,
McCulloch's show, titled "Women
at U of M," will highlight several
female standouts at the University,
including women's cross country
runner Mindy Rowland and will also
feature several female speakers from
the United Coalition Against
McCulloch's final interview be-
fore David Newman takes over is
Peer Counseling Center's Doreen

Murasky, who will discuss social
and academic pressures on campus.
Newman will conclude the morn-
ing by interviewing Joel Kamisir, a
professor from the Law School.
Kamisir is scheduled to discuss the
upcoming legal battle over abortion.
Former Detroit Tiger baseball
pitcher and afternoon radio host
Denny McLain will start at 4:00
p.m. and will talk with Wolverine
baseball coach Bill Freehan, who
used to catch for McLain on the
Tigers.McLain will close the Union
roadcast with Athletic Director and
football coach Bo Schembechler.
"We're looking for a lot of stu-
dent input, on all of the topics," said
WXYT Public Relations Manager
Tracy Zambeck. "We want students
to come by and talk to us, and tell
us how they feel about football
games, issues on campus, and aca-
demic pressures."

Great Lakes toxic build up
continues over cleanup efforts
CHICAGO - Despite an intensive Great Lakes cleanup effort that
began in the early 1970s, toxic substances continue to build up and may
pose an even greater health threat today, said U.S. and Canadian experts
The accumulations are poisoning wildlife and may reach up the food
chain to 35 million people who live in the region, according "Great
Lakes, Great Legacy?," a report released at a joint news conference held
simultaneously in Chicago and Toronto.
The report said the Great Lakes cleanup that began in the early 1970s
has reduced the amount of human waste and toxic industrial garbage
dumped into the lakes, but has not prevented continued buildups of some
dangerous chemicals, including cancer-causing polychlorinated biphenyls,
or PCBs, as well as pesticides that leach into the lakes.
The Great Lakes - Erie, Huron, Michigan, Ontario and Superior -
border seven states and Canada, and hold 20 percent of the world's fresh
surface water.
Govs. accept nuclear waste
WASHINGTON - The Bush administration pressed governors of
seven states yesterday to help avert a possible forced shutdown of the
Rocky Flats nuclear arms plant by agreeing to temporarily store part of
its radioactive waste next year.
Most of the seven - Idaho, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, South
Carolina, Tennessee and Washington - had indicated earlier this week
they would not accept any of the waste, which contains plutonium that
remains radioactive for 240,000 years.
Washington Gov. Booth Gardner refused to budge after receiving a
telephone call yesterday from White House Chief of Staff John Sununu.
The administration says closing Rocky Flats would amount to
unilateral nuclear disarmament since it is the sole maker of plutonium
triggers for warheads.
The seven were singled out because they have Energy Department
nuclear weapons facilities that already hold vast amounts of radioactive
and toxic wastes.
High court hears state plea
WASHINGTON - A Michigan appeals court correctly threw out a
1986 sexual-conduct conviction because the prosecution used an illegally
obtained confession to challenge the defendant's testimony, an attorney
told the Supreme Court yesterday.
Robert Morgan argued an attorney should be present at all
interrogations of someone charged with a crime.
Representing the state of Michigan, Timothy Baughman, chief of
research, training and appeals in the Wayne County prosecutor's office,
argued that use of the disputed evidence did not deprive Tyris Harvey of a
fair trial.
Harvey, accused of beating and sexually assaulting a woman in July
1986, made two statements to police without a lawyer present. Harvey
volunteered the second but said he might want to confer with his lawyer.
Police told him that was not necessary because the attorney would get a
copy of the statement.
The court gave no indication of when it would rule.
Doctors limit care for fear of
malpractice lawsuits study says
WASHINGTON - Frequent malpractice lawsuits and sharply rising
insurance premiums are causing some doctors to stop delivering babies,
leaving poor women with only limited obstetrical care, an Institute of
Medicine study said yesterday.
A two-year study by a panel that included doctors, lawyers and
educators found that "significant numbers" of obstetricians, other
physicians and nurse-midwives are limiting the types of care they provide
because of concern over being sued.
"The result is a serious shortage of obstetrical care in many rural and
inner city areas," said Roger Bulger, chair of the Institute of Medicine
study committee and president of the Association of Academic Health
MSU protects Sparty from paint
EAST LANSING (AP) - Kickoff for the football game between
Michigan State and Michigan is 3:35 p.m. Saturday, but some MSU
students already are playing defense.
Students have been staging all-night vigils around Sparta since Sunday
in order to protect the Spartan warrior from a sneak attack by Michigan
fans, said Mary Platt, spokeswoman for the Michigan State marching

The 9-foot-7-inch ceramic statue has frequently received unwanted paint
jobs of maize and blue prior to the intrastate football clash she said, but
students wanted to protect the statue this year because it has just
undergone a $75,000 restoration.
Marching band members conducted the nightly vigil Sunday through
Tuesday and the Varsity S Club planned to join last night, she said.
"They bring their sleeping bags and coffee pots with them and sit in
shifts." she said.

Change Bylaw (14.02) to include Lesbians and Gay Men in
order to afford them the same legal protection offered to
similarly oppressed minority groups on campus.
Offer regular courses in Lesbian and gay Men's studies at
the university. Ultimately, establish a Lesbian and Gay
Men's culture department which would serve the needs of
not only the L/GM communuty, but the University as a
Establish a mandatory class on racism and sexism which
includes a section on 'heterosexism'. Expose Frosh to the
concepts of anti-Lesbian and Gay Men's bigotry.
Improve the Lesbian and Gay Men's literature collections
in the university library. Consolidate and create a 'union
list' of L/GM's serials available in the Labadie collection.
Establish a 'lounge' or 'community center' on campus for
Lesbians and Gay Men for meetings, films, poetry read-
ings and current literature. This would benefit not only the:
Lesbian and Gay Men's community, but the university as
a whole because it would serve as a resource 'center' on
