E. Quad Women's Weekend begins

by Diane Cook
Daily Women's Issues Reporter
"I feel like I'm in a strange time
warp," Nancy Hawley, founding
member of the Boston Women's
Health Book Collective, told an au-
dience of about 150 people in the
East Quad/Residential College Audi-
torium yesterday.
Hawley was the keynote speaker
of the 23rd Annual Women's Week-
end at East Quad, a four-day series of
workshops and lectures focilsing on
health issues which started last
night.
A practicing psychotherapist,
Hawley said she was amazed by the
conversations she heard while dining
at Lester cooperative house. "Igcould
never remember us talking together
as women," she said. "To see how
things changed and there's a
woman's consciousness here on
campus now is wonderful." Hawley
lived at the cooperative house in the
mid 60s when she was a student here
at the University.
Hawley also spoke about the re-
cent changes in Eastern Europe, say-
ing they are exciting to her because
they "open up the possibility of
more democracy" and the "expansion
of choices" for people worldwide.

The freeing of Mandela was espe-
cially powerful, Hawley added.
"What it brought home to me
was the lack of political and spiritual
leaders in this country and the
world," she said. "He is one of those
people for me."
Hawley then closed the gap be-
tween herself and the audience by sit-
ting on the edge of the stage. She
took the audience on a guided medi-
tation through a forest and into a
comfortable home, where everyone
visualized a world of women's
health. After the visual exercise,
Hawley opened the discussion to the
audience so people could describe
their experiences during the
"journey."
WhenHawley returned to the mi-
crophone, she told the history of her
book titled "The New Our Bodies,
Our Selves." She said the book
evolved from meetings over coffee
with friends who had an interest in
women's issues. The book was re-
searched by small groups, each of
which studied certain aspects of
women's health issues.
The groups presented the infor-
mation to each other and eventually
created an underground book, which
sold about 100,000 copies. The

1974 commercially published book,
"Our Bodies Our Selves," was up-
dated in 1984 and renamed "The New
Our Bodies, Ourselves."
Hawley added tat though she

was more concerned with politics in
the past, she is now looking into
spiritual aspects of her life. She
ended her speech by reading selec-
tions by feminist spiritualists.

Nancy Hawley, publisher of The New Our Bodies, Our Selves, delivered
the keynote address of the 23rd Annual Women's Weekend last night at
East Quad.

If the city builds the MRF, funds
to operate the facility would come
from tax dollars. If privatized, resi-
dents would pay for recycling on an
individual basis.
Isaac-Jacobein Campbell (R-First
Ward), Valerie Ackerman (D/G-Sec-
ond Ward) and Thais Perterson(D-
Fifth Ward), all hoping to unseat
current councilmembers, criticized
incumbents for being out of touch
with voters and pledged to maintain
closer contact with constituents if
elected.
Incumbents, on the other hand,
stressed a proven record of involve-
ment on the council. Councilmem-
ber Thomas Richardson(R-Fifth
Ward) said he has the experience to
take on the "hard" issues while
Councilmember Larry Hunter (D-
First Ward) said his constituents
needed a major leaguer, not a minor
leaguer on the council.

honest, open dialogue, we are avail-
able," he said. "(The Regents' Meet-
ing) is not where we should make
political decisions on campus... we
are not convinced meeting on your
terms, on your turf is productive... it
has to be real dialogue," he said.
"If you look at the issue of free
speech at the University all the way
back to the 19th century, it happened
on the Diag," Orlowski said.
Roach said the original meaning
of the shanties has been diluted by
the fact that "every time someone
has a cause, they go get a hammer,
wood and nails and put another one
up.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Flight 255 trials drag on
DETROIT - The trial of lawsuits stemming from from the crash of
Northwest Flight 255 is nearing the end of its fifth month with no jury
verdict and no damages awarded, a U.S. District Court official said yester-
day.
The complex trial is expected to last several more months and would
take even longer if Northwest Airlines had not reached out-of-court set-
tlements with families of the 156 victims, Court Executive John Mayer
said.
Most of the settlements with Northwest were reached in October.
Opening arguments in the trial were presented Nov, 2 to a six-member
jury and a judge.
The main issue in the trial involves Northwest's claim that the jet was
defective and the counterclaim by McDonnell Douglas, maker of the jet,
that the Flight 255 crew "just didn't fly it right," Mayer said.
Idaho Senate passes new
restrictive abortion bill
BOISE - The Idaho Senate passed and sent to the governor yesterday
the most restrictive abortion law of any state, one that could become a
test of the U.S. Supreme Court's commitment to legalized abortions.
If signed by Democratic Gov. Cecil Andrus, the measure would take
effect July 1. Andrus has declined to announce his intentions on the bill
but has reiterated his long-held anti-abortion stand.
The law would make abortion illegal except in cases of non-statutory
rape reported within seven days, incest if the victim is younger than 18,
severe fetal deformity or a threat to the mother's life or physical health.
Both sides agree it would ban more than 90 percent of the 1,500 abor-
tions performed in the state every year.
Oil tanker captain acquitted
ANCHORAGE (AP) - Joseph Hazelwood was acquitted of three ma-
jor charges and convicted of one misdemeanor, negligent discharge of oil
today, two days before the first anniversary of the nation's worst oil spill.
created by his tanker, the Exxon Valdez.
The single charge on which Hazelwocd was convicted carries a maxi-
mum sentence of 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine, far less than the 70
years and $61,000 fine he could have faced.
There were bursts of applause in the court room as Superior Court
Judge Karl Johnstone read the first three verdicts of "not guilty."
After only 10 and one-half hours of deliberations, the jurors absolved
Hazelwood of all charges alleging that he was drunk and reckless when the
tanker ran aground, spilling nearly I1 millions gallons of oil into Prince
William Sound.
U.S. and Soviets agree on
new grain trade pact
WASHINGTON (AP) - American farmers have been guaranteed a
major portion of the Soviet Union's grain import market for another five
years, officials announced yesterday.
Agriculture Secretary Clayton Yeutter and U.S. Trade Representative
Carla Mills said a tentative agreement was reached during negotiations in'
Vienna.
The new accord will increase the annual minimum shipments of U.S.
grain to the Soviets, and guarantee approximately 50 million tons over
the next five years.
"We think this is a good deal, that it assures U.S. farmers of a stable
market over the life of the agreement," Julius Katz, deputy U.S. trade rep-
resentative, said in Vienna.
Katz said details of the pact would be disclosed after it is signed at the
June summit meeting between President Bush and Soviet President
Mikhail Gorbachev.
EXTRAS
It's 'bottoms' up on this
couple's wedding video
CHICAGO - It was to be a videotape of of Robert and Christine Pet-
titi's best day: the joyful tolling of wedding bells, the solemn exchange of
vows, a close-up of the maid of honor. But her face, not her derriere.
Newlywed Pettiti and his wife are upset over a videotape he says is a
cross between Fellini and "America's Funniest Home Videos." The couple

sued Fred Fox Studios Ltd., and settled Wednesday for a undisclosed sum.
Pettiti has said Fred Fox Studios was lax on precautions. In fact, he
said, the tape of his wedding is not to be believed.
"You get the back of my bald head saying the vows," he said.
Wotst of all, he said, was the tendency of the cameraman to focus on
the guests' posteriors while filming the dancers.
"Twenty years from now, I won't know whose rear ends those are,"
Pettiti moaned.
