Davis compares

Kinko' s fined in
coursepack suit

by Robin Litwin
Angela Davis, a well known po-
litical activist, tackled topics rang-
ing from the current Clarence
Thomas hearings to the problem of
apartheid in South Africa, during
her speech at a packed Rackham
Auditorium last night.
Davis described the Thomas
hearings as "the most dramatic re-
cent outburst of racism" and
claimed that Anita Hill was "used
and manipulated by a group of rich
white men."
"The greatest irony was the fact
that those that were sitting in
judgement were not exactly inno-
cent themselves," Davis said.
"Not one of them understood the
history of racism or the history of
African Americans."
She said Thomas had trivialized
anid manipulated Black history and
drew a comparison to Columbus'
"invasion" of America which she
said began a "genocidal legacy."
She sees the unfolding of events
in South Africa as the continuation
of the genocidal legacy, and began
to relate the horrors she said she
shw during a recent trip there.
"The trip involved witnessing
some of the most abominable

things I've ever seen, but it was
also one of the most inspiring trips

Africa) involved

I've ever taken," Davis said.
She said she was amazed by the
incredible political consciousness
and hopethese people living in
"houses worse than jails" dis-
played -despite their living and
working conditions. She told of the
intensely violent atmosphere that
Blacks were forced to live through
every day.

Kinko's Graphics Corporation
was fined $500,000 plus court fees
in the case Basic Books v. Kinko's
which was finally settled yesterday,
almost seven months after the
Southern New York District Court
made its ruling.
Kinko's did not appeal the
court's decision that the copy shop
had violated the Copyright Act by
producing and distributing unautho-
rized coursepacks.
"The biggest message that
Kinko's wants to send is that we
want to have a good working rela-
tionship with the publishers," said
Douglas Kempton, Kinko's regional
manager. "If we had appealed the
court's decision, we would still be
in the same heated battle with
Shelly Smith, copyright and
coursepack consultant at Albert's
Copying, said, "As far as everyone
here was concerned, and as far as the
academic community was concerned,
this case was already over."
Although Kinko's now asks for
permission from the publishers for
each article they reprint, some of the

smaller copy shops are not taking
the lawsuit as seriously, Kempton
Smith said, "If someone wants
one page from a book, we won't call
for permission. This may be wrong4
but it doesn't seem like that's the
type of thing they're talking
Owners and managers of some
copying shops said the ruling is rea-
"The publishers have the right to
set fees; as consumers, we must
choose alternatives," Kempton said.
"Also, by not asking for permis-
sion, we are not allowing the pub-
lisher to say no."
Chris Sheets, an Alphagraphics*
employee, said, "The publishers a
have the right to decide what it
should cost; however, the whole
system has to change because it can't
work well the way it is now."
The court's decision has affected
the amount of work the copy shops=,
need to do to print a coursepack. ;
"We have to be a lot more care-
ful, and getting in touch with the
publishers, especially those over-
seas, is very time-consuming,'
Smith said.

Americans with that of Blacks in
South Africa," said Gar Giles, a
first-year law student.
"Discrimination in America and
South Africa is very similar and
the two governments support each
other's systems."
The audience reacted positively
to what Davis said.
"I felt really inspired by her,"
Melinda Montgomery, an LSA

sophomore said. "It gives me a
feeling as though everyone ought
to be doing something to take part
in formulating our history."
"When I came here I wasn't
sure what to expect," Tiffany
Shadd, an LSA sophomore, said.
"But after heari:g her speak, I felt

Gamekeepers Sports Pub to open soon
will replace Dooley's on Maynard St.

by Mary Lederman
The University will soon see the
opening of a new student-oriented
bar and restaurant.
Gamekeepers Sports Pub, located
at 310 Maynard where Dooley's was
previously located, plans to open
between the end of October and
early November.
Dooley's, plagued by incidents of
violence, was closed for the final
time by the city of Ann Arbor last
October, following the murder of a
man in the neighboring parking
structure several months earlier. A
fight had broken out inside the bar
and was pushed into the street by
the bouncers.
The new owner and manager of
Gamekeepers, Americ Joslin said
this type of violence will be elimi-
nated by the new atmosphere of
Gamekeepers. It will now be a
sports bar and serve a full menu of
approximately 40 items.

During the day, Gamekeepers
will serve lunch and dinner to cus-
tomers of all ages. The kitchen will
remain open until approximately 12
a.m., but after 8 p.m., the customers
must be at least 21 to be admitted,
so the bar can avoid many of the vio-
lations which Dooley's received for
serving minors alcohol.
University LSA Junior Jeff
Handler shares the opinion of many
students that a sports-oriented bar
on campus is a good idea. He notes
that "most bars that plan to be
sports bars don't end up to be that,"
such as Quality Bar. He said if
Gamekeepers stays consistent with
its theme it will draw a great deal
of business.
Joslin said Gamekeepers will
remain sports-oriented because of
the renovations which have been un-
der way since early September, in-
cluding the installation of a putting

green, pinball games, a computer-
ized football game, and 30 televi-
sion sets which will be linked to a
satellite system.
The bar is aimed primarily at
college students, Joslin said, but it
will also be -geared towards busi-
nesspeople. Joslin's said his goal is
to have a place where people from
all aspects of life can come to enjoy
Because of the violent history of
the Maynard Street area and the
many violations given to the previ-
ous owners, a liquor licence has not
yet been obtained. This issue will
brought to the City Council for ap-
proval at their Oct. 21 meeting.

TAORMINA, Sicily (AP) -
U.S. Defense Secretary Dick Cheney
and other NATO defense chiefs
reached a landmark decision yester-
day to cut their nuclear arsenal in
Europe by 80 percent, effective
It is the biggest reduction in
NATO's 42-year history. The action
will rid Western Europe of more
than 2,000 nuclear artillery shells
and short-range missiles and about
700 gravity bombs dropped from
. The 700 bombs remaining will
amount to one-tenth of the number
of nuclear weapons stockpiled a
decade ago by the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization.
The defense ministers cited the
easing of fears of a surprise attack
by the Soviet Union 4nd its former

allies in the Warsaw Pact
"The risk of a massive and im-
mediate threat that the Warsaw
Pact used to poise has gone," British
Defense Secretary Tom King said at
the end of the first day of talks in
this Sicilian resort overlooking the
Mediterranean Sea.
"But the uncertainties are very
great and... we think it prudent to:
maintain a minimum level of
The ministers' dramatic decision
was shaded by concerns about the
impact of a Franco-German proposal
for a European force that could op-
a erate independently of the alliance.
The proposal was offered as part
of negotiations by the 12-nation
European Community to create a
political union with a common for-
eign, security and defense policy. ;
