LANSING (AP) - An Ingham
County circuit court judge had no
authority to block an East Lansing
street party notorious for rowdy be-
havior, the Michigan Court of Ap-
peals has ruled.
In a decision released yesterday,
the appeals court said Judge Carolyn
Stell erred in 1987 when she ruled
that the Cedarfest party near the
Michigan State University campus
was a public nuisance and issued an
injunction against it.
The semi-annual street party be-
came famous for drunkenness, vio-
lence and property damage. But it
has died out since Stell issued the
permanent injunction against it.
The Court of Appeals ruled that
Stell didn't have jurisdiction to han-
dle the case as she did. It said the in-
junction didn't provide "fair notice of
the conduct forbidden and that it en-
courages arbitrary and erratic arrests
and convictions."
The appeals court returned the
case to circuit court for a hearing at
which Stell is to clarify the injunc-
tion. And it told Stell to "re-evaluate
the threat of nuisance posed by
Cedarfest on a yearly basis begin-
ning in calendar year 1990."

Police disperse protesters who demonstrated in downtown LaPaz, Bolivia yesterday. Marchers were
supporting the hundreds of Bolivian school teachers who have demanded higher payments to compensate for
increases in the cost of living. The teachers are hunger striking until their demands are met. Three of the
teachers are in a state of coma.

gan's 18-member U.S. House of
Representatives' delegation received
a combined $533,325 for speeches,
appearances and articles in 1987 and
1988, a citizens' lobby opposed to
such payments reported yesterday.
Five of the state's representatives
received $50,000 or more during the
two years, Common Cause said.
They included Reps. Jon Dingell (D-
Trenton); Guy Vander Jagt (R-
Luther); William Ford (D-Taylor);
Robert Davis (R-Gaylord); and David
Bonior (D-Mount Clemens).
The organization complied a list
of honoraria fees paid to members of
the 100th Congress, which was
elected in 1986. It was released as
the House prepares to vote this week
on a package of pay increases and
ethics reforms expected to include a
ban on honoraria except for fees do-
nated to charity.
Of the $533,325 the Michigan
lawmakers received, they kept
$455,064 and contributed $78,261 to
charity, the organization said. Na-
tionwide, the 435-member House
collected $12.1 million in honoraria
during the period, keeping $9.6 mil-
lion and contributing $2.5 million.
"Special interests have given mil-
lions of dollars to members of
Congress to gain special influence in
the legislative process," said Fred
Wertheimer, president of Common
Cause. "Congress must act now to
end the totally discredited honoraria
fee system."
House members were allowed to
keep for personal use up to $25,885
in 1987 and $26,850 in 1988 - 30
percent of their congressional
salaries. Members of Congress are
not permitted to accept more than
$2,000 for a single speech, appear-

ance or article unless the amount ex-
ceeding $2,000 is given to charity.
There is no limit on the number
of times a lawmaker may receive
honoraria from the same organiza-
Topping the list of Michigan
members was Dingell, chair of the
Energy and Commerce Committee
and widely regarded as one of the
most powerful members of
Congress. He received $93,200 in
honoraria over the two-year period
and kept $52,300, giving the rest to
Dingell received 52 separate
payments. The biggest was $8,000
from the E. Bruce Harrison Co.
Most payments came from orga-
nizations interested in energy or
commerce issues, such as the Air
Pollution Control Association, the
American Dental Association, the
American Nuclear Energy Council,
Bell South Corp., the U.S. Chamber
of Commerce, General Foods and the
Sporting Goods Manufacturers As-
sociation. Dingell also received
$8,000 from the National Associa-
tion of Broadcasters and $200 from
the Washington Journalism Center.
A spokesperson for Dingell said
Dingell is a longtime supporter of
coupling a ban on honoraria with a
pay raise for members although he
continues to accept the fees.
Common Cause said eight mem-
bers of Michigan's delegation are on
record in favor of an honoraria ban.
They are Bonior; Howard Wolpe (D-
Lansing); Fred Upton (R-St.
Joseph); Dale Kildee (D-Flint); Bill
Schuette (R-Sanford); George Crock-
ett (D-Detroit); Sander Levin (D-
Southfield); and William Broomfield

The organization marshaled the

cholesterol in their diet to minimize
their risk of heart disease.
"If you give the message that
cholesterol is a myth, it is wrong. It
is important that we detect and treat
it," said Dr. John LaRosa of George
Washington University.
LaRosa, who called Moore's
work "sensational" and "not respon-
sible," was one of six prominent
heart experts who gathered at the an-
nual meeting of the American Heart
Association to present the case
against cholesterol.
