East Germany to follow
Soviet path to reform

MOSCOW (AP) - East German
leader Egon Krenz called public
protest at home a "food sign" yes-
terday and said his country, rigidly
orthodox until now, would follow
President Mikhail Gorbachev on the
path of reform.
Krenz said he and Gorbachev
reached "total agreement on all ques-
xtions we discussed," one of which
was reform in the Soviet Union and
East Germany.
"In this sense, I consider this a
y, very good sign," Krenz told a news
conference after meeting with Gor-

bachev on his first trip abroad since
replacing hard-liner Erich Honecker,
his 77-year-old mentor, two weeks
The remarks about protest were
his most tolerant to date. Krenz's
government has embarked on a pro-
gram of dialogue with the opposi-
tion and more open dealings with the
people, trying to gain their trust
after decades of repression.
Honecker, who led the country
for 18 years, was brought down by
the flight of tens of thousands of
East Germans, most of them skilled

young workers, and weeks of mass
East Germans continue leaving.
More than 500 showed up yesterday
at the West German embassy in
Prague, Czechoslovakia, seeking
passage to the West.
ADN, the official East German
news agency, said 8,000 East Ger-
mans had crossed the Czechoslovak
border under the new policy of visa-
free travel to the neighboring Com-
munist country. Thousands of East
Germans already have fled to West
Germany through Czechoslovakia.

Harris said last week.
Sharples said one reason it took
so long to reach an agreement was
that Michigamua members wanted to
get input from alumni members on
the decision.
"There were members that regret-
ted letting go part of our past. But,
on the other hand, there was a strong
recognition of a need for change,"
Sharples said.
Don Lund, a member of
Michigamua's "Old Braves Coun-
cil," said even though several of the
group's traditions would change,
Michigamua would carry on.
"It's changing times so you have
to go along," Lund said. "We want
to cooperate and keep Michigamua
on a high standard."
Both parties are keeping the
specifics of the mediation process
confidential. Harris said this is out
of respect to the confidentiality of
Michigamua and the other parties

The chamber actually had voted
Tuesday to forbid smoking on all
routes in the continental United
states and on all flights to and from
Hawaii and Alaska scheduled for six
hours or less. Yesterday, it finished

airline industry says are scheduled

would take effect 96 days after the
measure is signed into law.
"In February or march of next

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -
About 500 people rallied yesterday at
the state Capitol against pornogra-
phy, while several researchers told
lawmakers that explicit magazines
and videos don't trigger sexual vio-
State Sen. Fred Dillingham, R-
Fowlerville, rejected that viewpoint
at the rally, saying not one claimed
that textbooks, other books, movies
and television didn't affect people.
"It doesn't make sense. Don't let
them get away with it," he said,
drawing cheers from those in the
crowd, who carried signs saying
"Snuff Out Smut" and "Perversion
and Filth Aren't Rights."
The rally, which kicked off Na-
tional Pornography Awareness
Week, spilled over to the House and
Senate committee hearings where
anti-obscenity bills were being con-

committee would alter existing law
that uses statewide standards to de-
termine if material is obscene and re-
quire that standards of the commu-
nity from which the jury is drawn be
used instead.
Pornography is protected under
the First Amendment, but obscenity
The bills would change sale or
possession of obscene material from
a misdemeanor to a felony, punish-
able by up to four years in prison, a
fine of up to $100,000 or both.
Prosecutors also would be al-
lowed to ask the court to close an
establishment if the owner is con-
victed of an obscenity offense and
video casettes would be required to
be labeled with the films' official
The panel delayed action of the
measure until today.
The House Towns and Counties

Committee yesterday unanimously
approved five bills in the package
that would allow townships, villages
and cities to enforce ordinances that
regulate obscene materials.
Edward J. Donnerstein, a re-
searcher at the University of Califor-
nia in Santa Barbara, said in his,15
years of study on reducing sexual as-
sault and child molestation saysshe
has found that perpetrators are not
motivated by sexually explicit mate-
rial, but instead by violence.
"The types of violent material
they use isn't in the X-rated marlket.
It's R-rated material, slasher filins,
images of women being decapitated
and raped. These types of images
can be found on prime time televi-
