'U' grad killed in
Persian Gulf crash

Alleged rioters
arraigned in
district court

A former Kalamazoo resident was
among six people killed when a
U.S. Navy helicopter crashed in the
Persian Gulf last weekend, mili-
tary sources said yesterday.
U.S. Navy Lt. j.g. Craig
Valentine, 26, was killed when the
MH-53 Sea Dragon helicopter
crashed into the Arabian Gulf after
takeoff from an amphibious assault
ship, said his mother, Karen
Valentine. She said Navy officials
contacted her Sunday.
Valentine wanted to follow his
grandfather's footsteps as a Navy
pilot, his mother said.
"He was absolutely perfect, he
really was. He never was a prob-
lem," Mrs. Valentine told the
Kalamazoo Gazette. "He was
bright, an honor student, and well-
liked by all his classmates."
Craig Valentine was born in
Des Moines, Iowa, and moved to
the Kalamazoo area in 1976. He

graduated from Gull Lake High
School and was a 1987 University
graduate. He met his wife, Tracey,
from Bloomfield Hills, while at
the University, his mother said.
Tracey Valentine now lives in San
Valentine entered the Navy
flight program in Pensacola, Fla.,
and completed it in 1987, Karen
Valentine said. He was stationed at
the Alameda Naval Air Station in
California before shipping out for
Saudi Arabia in July.
Navy Lt. Robert Ross said yes-
terday the helicopter was used for
hauling cargo and hunting mines.
Lt. Cmdr. Tim O'Leary, a
spokesperson for the U.S. Naval
Command, said the aircraft crashed
at 9:05 p.m. Saturday, minutes after
taking off from the amphibious as-
sault ship USS Peleliu 40 miles
north of Bahrain. The bodies were
not recovered until yesterday, he

street melee were arraigned yester-


The bodies were taken to the
military hospital in Dhahran, Saudi
Arabia, and will be flown back to
the United States later, he said.
The U.S. Navy has maintained a
strong force in the Persian Gulf re-
gion since the end of the war in
February, during which time more
than 70 American service members
have died.

District Court Judge S.J. Elden
presided over the formal reading of
charges in a packed courtroom. The
charges ranged from inciting a riot,
to felonious assault, to malicious
destruction of police property.
Of the five defendants, Shane
Holbrook is the only defendant cur-
rently in custody. The Ann Arbor
resident is charged with inciting a
riot and felonious assault. If con-
victed, the 17-year-old could face up
to 10 years imprisonment.
At the time of his arrest,
Holbrook was awaiting trial for an
unrelated incident. He entered no
plea at his arraignment and re-
quested a public defender.
The other four defendants -
Notre Dame junior Michael
Hartmann, LSA sophomore Michael
Van Scoy, and Engineering juniors
Anthony Harris and Lance Peterson

- have been released on a $1,000
Van Scoy and Hartman were
charged with felonious assault and
face a maximum penalty of four
years imprisonment.
"We entered a plea of not guilty
today," said Basil Baker, the attor-
ney for Van Scoy and Hartmann.
"To comment any further on the
case would be inappropriate."
Harris, is charged with mali-
cious destruction of police property
and will be defended by a public de-
fender. Due to the nature of the
charge, Harris' case will be heard in
circuit court instead of district

The police asked that they clear the
people from their front lawn and
turn down their music.

Theta and Phi Gamma Delta would

down last night.
Levy said he feels that while po-
lice say they are trying to foster
better relationships with Univer-
sity students, "they act hypocriti-
cally when they do things like break
up parties and tear gas football
"If they call how they are acting
making a better relationship with
students, if cracking down on us and
not telling us why making a better
relationship with students, I don't
want to see what they think makes a

bad relationship," he said.
Matt Commers, president of the
Interfraternity Council (IFC), said,
"I think that a good working rela-
tionship between students and po-
lice assumes that students are obey-
ing the law. If a fraternity is serving
alcohol to a vast number of people,
it causes things to happen outside of
the house that are detrimental to ev-
Commers added that the goal of
the police crackdown is to curb inci-
dents of this civil disobedience.

Peterson, whose case will be
held in a circuit court, is charged
with felonious assault of a police
officer. He also requested a public

Van Scoy and Hartman will begin

sault. EMU officials confirmed
that four of those arrested are EMU
students. The three arrested foot-
ball players involved in the incident
will not receive preferential treat-
ment, Coach Jim Hankema said.
"We're conducting an investiga-
tion, and, as usual, we'll handle this
situation as an internal family mat-
ter," Hankema said.
The Field House was cleared out
around 1:30 a.m., Tinney said. How-
ever, as officers were returning to
the police station, they received a

call to investigate a fight outside of
Sellers Residence Hall.
As they approached the scene, the
officers heard a gunshot and found a
first-year EMU student with a gun-
shot wound, Tinney said. The victim
had been on his way home from the
dispersed fraternity party.
Three suspects fled on foot and
are believed to have escaped in a
black Ford Escort.
The victim, whose name is not
being released, remains in stable
condition. The two men apparently
knew each other from high school
and had a confrontation earlier that

federal judge dismissed all charges
against Oliver North, the central
figure in the Iran-Contra affair, yes-
terday after the special prosecutor
gave up tryingto reinstate North's
felony convictions.
An exultant North declared
himself "totally exonerated... I've

maintain the 4 percent increase.
Many people have tried to take the
money away, but we hope the com-
mittee will stand by Engler and
maintain the funding," she said.
The issue of state funding for
new University buildings will also
be on the agenda. Recently, Engler
recommended that the state remove
all funding for new University
buildings, while the House recom-
mended the state pay up to 20 per-
cent of the cost and the Senate rec-
ommended up to 40 percent.
In the past two years, when uni-
versities opened new buildings, the
state paid for 20 to 60 percent of the
total cost of the building.
Opponents of the funding say the
cost of these buildings takes away
from funding for universities which
have no new buildings at the time
the money is allotted.
Keith Molin, associate vice pres-

struction of Congress - which
were set aside by a federal appeals
court in July 1990.
The appeals court had ordered
Gesell to determine whether testi-
mony at North's trial was tainted
by use of the defendant's own forced
testimony before Congress, given
under immunity in 1987.
President Bush, who has referred
to North as a hero for his Vietnam
exploits, called yesterday's action
"a good decision."
"It sounds like the system
worked very well," Bush said.
However, Walsh said the dis-
missal should be taken as "a very se-
rious warning that immunity is not
to be granted lightly."
ident for government relations and
secretary to the University, said he
didn't want to predict the outcome
of today's meeting.
"It is risky to predict these
things. You never really know what
all the factors are that come into
play," Molin said. "But I wouldn't
be surprised or disappointed if the
report is finalized. Four of the
committee members are probably
seeing it for the first time."
Molin said the issue of new
building funding is of primary con-
cern for the University.
"I expect facility funding to be a
big issue. Naturally we would like
the state to fund as much as possi-
ble, but given the budgetary prob-
lems, we support the Senate's rec-
ommendation to fund 40 percent of
the total cost," Molin said.
Molin agreed with Campbell
about the importance of maintaining
the 4 percent increase to higher edu-

More and more PhDs across the coun-
try are recommending Hewlett-Packard
financial and scientific calculators
to their students. And for some very
strong reasons.
"The HP 48SX Scientific Expandable
has powerful graphics tools that are
remarkably helpful to students learn-
j.ng mathematical concepts. And with

functions. These free the students from
computational tedium so they can
think and interact on a higher level;'
says Dr. Lee V. Stiff, a professor of math
education at North Carolina State
