It would require federal and local
officials to draft plans to protect the
rivers and adjacent quarter-mile strips
of land from pollution and develop-
ment that would alter their existing
condition. Each river corridor would
be classified as wild, scenic, or recre-
ational, depending on how developed
they now are.
Many Upper Peninsula residents
bitterly oppose the bill as meddling
in their business.
Supporters insist the bill would
not infringe unduly on property
rights and that people could continue
most of their current activities.

policy-making arm of the federal
courts approved yesterday an experi-
mental plan to permit television
cameras to record and broadcast civil
trials in a handful of federal court-
The three-year experiment will

two federal appeals courts and six
trial courts. Judges who volunteer
their courtrooms for the plan will

The U.S. Judicial Conference,
headed by Chief Justice William
Rehnquist, approved the idea over-

Sellers'indicated that Rehnquist

The conference, with 27 federal

Sellers said only a few judges
spoke against the experiment and
that "the pervasive view is this is

sign that would allow us to get
back where we were," he said.
TA reaction to the cutback was
mixed. One former EECS TA,
who spoke on condition of
anonymity, said the cutback will
decrease the quality of teaching and
overburden the graduate students.
He added that the increased class
burden will hurt the graduate's
own studies and research. "TAs
will take a longer time to gradu-
ate," he said.
Dan Lyons, a TA in the EECS
department, did not express con-
cern about his new workload. He
said he has the same number of
sections and will continue to hold@
the same number of office hours.
One undergraduate computer
science student commented,
"EECS TAs work very hard. They
still teach classes, check pro-
gramming and assist in labs. They
