Conflicting ideals are often the

xcused) To assist men in sorting out some
of these issues, the Sexual Assault
Prevention and Awareness Center
ky (SAPAC) has sponsored support
groups to help men gain a better un-
derstanding of themselves for the

Ulester Douglas, a facilitator for

Douglas said the "prescriptions"
of how men should act have led to
the oppression of men's feelings.
"It is a slow emotional death,"
Douglas said. "By getting in touch
and dealing with issues, we alleviate
a lot of the pressures. We hope to

'Some of the assumptions about what it

group facilitator

"The purpose of the group is not to
support men who feel threatened by
women gaining power."
Powers, who first joined the sup-
port group as a participant, said he
feels he has acquired a better under-
standing of himself and people in
general.
"Last year, I went through the
group and felt I got more out of it
than I did out of school," he said.
Kata Issari, interim coordinator
for SAPAC, said that the program
owes its success to the fact that it
was started "by men, for men."
"Because of its structure, it has
been very successful," Issari said.
"I've never heard any criticism from
women."
Powers said that a diverse group
of men participates in the work-
shops.
"The only similar thing about the
men are that they are not the tradi-
tional macho male and are socially-
minded," he said.

color," he said. "But one thing we
talk about is confronting our own
sexism."
Powers said the workshops deal
with several themes, including men
and violence, men and sexuality, the
relationships of men with their fa-
thers, and male-male friendships and
relationships.
"We are talking about different
things relating to our masculinity
and trying to express traits that are
traditionally female," Powers said.

CITIES
Continued from pagel
again in June, was to set up the fu-
ture agenda.
Yesterday, the caucus briefly
discussed the lack of control cities
have over state-owned property
within city boundaries as well as
problems with students who live
off campus.
"We have people walking down
the street with open cans of beer
from one party to another," said
Mt. Pleasant mayor Susan Smith
about Central Michigan University
students.
Ypsilanti mayor Clyde King said
Eastern Michigan University
(EMU) students behave similarly
and Ypsilanti's problems intensi-

fied when EMU outlawed the sale
of alcohol on campus.
"It increased the problem by
ousting it out into the community,"
King said.
He added that campus Greek or-
ganizaton also create conflicts be-
tween the city and the university.
"When these organizations have
a wild party, we have difficulty de-
termining who's responsible," King
said. "(Greek organizations) work
within the framework of the stu-
dent activity center. When they do
something good they want to take
credit for it, but when they don't,
they want to lock their doors."
Ypsilanti city officials have been
meeting with EMU administration
and King said they have set up lines
of communication.

Ypsilanti plans to address EMU
students at orientation "to say this
is what we expect of you if you're
going to live in our city," King said.
Brater and Smith said Ann Arbor
and Mt. Pleasant operate similar
programs.
East Lansing mayor Elizabeth
Schweitzer said the city distributes
booklets containing information
about responsibilites of living off
campus to students and also meets
each term with the student
assembly.
"Sometimes it's more effective
to work with the students directly
than go through the administra-
tion," Schweitzer said. ""We're
talking about a very small number
of students who really cause prob-
lems."

Civilians flee southern Lebanon
under Shite-Israeli artillery fire

KAFRA, Lebanon (AP) -
Thousands of civilians fled villages
in southern Lebanon yesterday as
Shiite Muslim guerrillas and Israeli
soldiers rained rockets and artillery
shells at each other for a third
straight day.
There were no immediate reports
of deaths or injuries on the Lebanese
side. Thirteen people in the town of
Kiryat Shemona in northern Israel
were treated for shock and injuries
after one rocket attack.
The fighting fueled tension in the
volatile region in advance of new

Arab-Israeli peace talks in
Washington.
Each round of talks has been pre-
ceded by renewed violence in south-
ern Lebanon. Arabs have accused
Israel of creating incidents in an ef-
fort to derail the talks, but Syria,
Jordan, Lebanon and the Palestinian
delegation said they planned to at-
tend next week.
In New York, the U.N. Security
Council on Wednesday appealed to
all parties to the violence to
"exercise maximum restraint" and

enhance the Arab-Israeli peace pro-
cess.
Shiite and Israeli gunners blasted
at each other with rockets and how-
itzers from dawn to dusk yesterday.
Guerrillas of the Iranian-backed
Hezbollah used mobile launchers to
fire salvos of rockets at Israel's
Galilee panhandle and the Israeli-oc-
cupied "security zone" in southern
Lebanon. Hezbollah, which opposes
the peace talks, is trying to drive the
Israelis from the security zone .
