SHANTIES
Continued from page 1
the shanties will not be dismantled
until the system of apartheid is
dismantled."
But after years of protecting the
structures from a constant siege of
nighttime attacks, the shanty's de-
fenders grew disenchanted with the
tedious labor. "It was frustrating
rebuilding the shanties once a week
or so when people kept tearing them
down," Dixon said.
Although FSACC is defunct,
many past members said they now
concentrate their efforts on educat-
ing peers and other on-campus pro-
jects. "But we are still standing in
solidarity with (South African
Blacks)," Dixon said.
The University awarded the hon-
orary degree to Mandela in 1987, es-
tablished the BMC in his honor in
1989 and divested entirely from
South Africa the same year.
John Blow, chair of Tagar, the
pro-Israel group that built a mock
school bus on the Diag to represent a
terrorist attack on an Israeli bus in
1988, said the group's durable
shanty survived many arson at-
tempts in the year it stood.
By the time it was taken apart

with a crow bar, however, Tagar did
not have enough people around to
repair it, Blow said.
The PSC felt its shanty had
served the intended purpose on cam-
pus, said PSC member Daniel Kohns.
"It was built in order to bring
home to students in their sheltered
environment the inhumane existence
of the Palestinian refugees," said
Kohns, who helped construct the
shanty.
. "There comes a time when you
have to vary your tactics and be
more creative," he said.
Van Valey agreed. "People be-
came immune to them after
awhile," she said.
Some students said they are glad
to be rid of Diag shanties. "I really
didn't like them being there," said
LSA sophomore JR Degia. "They
were kind of an eyesore. But I think
people should have the freedom to
have them. If that's the way they
feel, they should be able to express
it."
When LSA sophomore Anne
Marie Weadock arrived on campus
last year she assumed they were a
natural part of university life. "I
thought they were the weirdest
things ever," she said. "One time I
saw a bum living in one and it kind
of freaked me out."

p

For five years the shanties were as much a part of Diag scenery as the 'M.' Often, up to five of the makeshift structures stood at the
same time. Protesting everything from apartheid to the Daily, the shanties were viewed by activists as an expression of political speech.
Others thought they were just plain eyesores.

Brown claims his approach to the
presidential campaign is different
than any other candidate before him.

money is the issue then the answer is
simply not to take it," Brown said.

the public hearing, including litter
and noise.
Offen also said he felt the ordi-
nance was enforced fairly.
"Fraternities, sororities and co-
ops all have to apply for special ex-
ception use," he said. In approving
the other Greek house expansions, he
said the commission was "dealing
with much lower density" in the
surrounding neighborhood.
Sacks said one neighborhood res-
ident told the sorority board "that
they want this house turned back
into a single-family dwelling."

Paul Rogers, spokesperson for
the OxBridge Neighborhood
Association, denied that neighbor-
hood residents wanted to convert
the area back to single-family
housing.
"The zoning in our area was de-
signed to support mixed housing
and we support mixed housing," he
said.
"Our opposition to the expan-
sion plan," Rogers said, "is in re-
sponse to the detrimental effects of
overcrowding," which he said in-
cluded parking problems, traffic vi-
olations and noise complaints.
Rogers regretted that the issue
could be perceived as a conflict be-
tween residents and students. "This

isn't a town-versus-gown issue at
all," he said. "All of us care far too
much about our town and our gown
to be that way."
Offen said concerns about a fra-
ternity moving into the Sigma
Kappa house at some point after the
expansion were also a factor in the
commission's decision. "That was
not the only reason, but it was a
consideration," he said.
However, Rogers said his orga-
nization never really considered
that possibility. "We never made a
big deal of that issue," he said.
Sacks said she will seek a sum-
mary judgement overturning the
ordinance on the basis of its dis-
criminatory nature.

HARASSMENT
Continued from page 1
This confusion was underscored
when Hill's allegations against
Supreme Court nominee Clarence
Thomas were made public on the eve
of his confirmation vote, and be-
cause the Judiciary Committee was
accused of giving them short shrift.
"Over the last 10 years, men and
women have come to agree that
things like grabbing and touching
constitute sexual harassment," said
James Gruber, a University of
Michigan sociologist and expert on
workplace harassment. "But men
still don't see the gravity of a
whole other range of behavior."

sity professors, deans, and students.
In addition, the panel will recom-

rassment.

Cadets is not new to the university,
Koldus said.
"We have had a series of other
incidents of harassment on campus.
dating back to the mid-'70s. But
things had been calm for quite a
while," he said.
The rape victim said in an inter-
view with the New York Times
that the incident occurred in an at-
mosphere of constant degradation to
women.
"Every day of your life you are
hearing that you're worthless and
it's always in the name of tradi-
tion," she said. "Well I say get rid
of tradition. They've had long
enough to change."
But Koldus said only a verv

Innuendo, off-color remarks and
spreading rumors count, too.
The Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission defines
sexual harassment as any sexual ad-
vance, request for sexual favor, sex-
ual remark or conduct that affects
job or promotion decisions, inter-
feres with work performance or cre-
ates a hostile, offensive or intimi-
dating atmosphere.
That last bit is significant. The
vast majority of victims decline to
report clear-cut cases of being
touched or threatened with a demo-
tion. Even fewer are likely to stand
up against subtler but no less inap-
propriate workplace behavior.
A 1987 study of federal govern-
tus hasn't come up before," said
Zanjani. "This is to prevent an abor-
tion from occurring."
Zanjani said the government's
objection to fetal tissue research is
that the demand for such tissue
might encourage abortions. He dis-

Maine Democrat said.
All the Democrats on the panel,
but not every Republican member,
were briefed about the allegations
before the committee voted 7-7 and
sent the nomination to the Senate
floor without a recommendation.

Many figure it's part of the
game. "They think, well, this is,-

missed that idea.
Zanjani said that tissues from a7'
single fetus could be used to treat
four or five fetuses.
"I know it's crude to say it -
one life to save five, if successful,"
he added.
"The reality is we did confront a
very serious situation, there were
conflicting interests and ultimately-"
I believe the manner in which we
agreed to proceed was appropriate
and fair," Mitchell said.
Thomas was quoted Monday by
his chief Senate sponsor, Sen. John
