We hear stories about abused women, never
considering that some of these women could be
our peers. What drives men toward abuse and
why do some women stay in these relationships?

Now had it rough... The documentary Hearts of

Judge delays
decision on
NORML case

University-city relations, the environment, city in-
come taxes and private company contracting of Ann
" Arbor services dominated the discussion last night at
the annual League of Women Voters candidate forum.
Thirteen city coucil candidates exchanged political
barbs during the debate as Republicans and Libertarian
candidates criticized the lack of progress made by the
Democrat-dominated council, but the Democrats de-
fended council activity.
"The city hall has demonstrated that it's out of con-
trol," said Republican 4th Ward hopeful Franz Mogdis
about the council.
He said the 8-3 Democrat "super" majority on coun-
cil has caused "chaos" among professionals in city hall.
He berated councilmembers for raising their own
salaries and for a "continued loss of productivity" in
city hall.
The Libertarian candidate from the 4th Ward, Nick
Contaxes, also criticized the council.
"Our government isn't part of the solution," he said. Where's Krusty?
"It's part of the problem."

'U' Hospital receives more
breast implant complaints

by Melissa Peerless
Daily Administration Reporter
Washtenaw County Circuit Court
Judge Donald Shelton decided yes-
terday he did not have enough evi-
dence to rule on a case between the
University and the National
Organization for the Reform of
Marijuana Laws (NORML), which
is suing the University for the use of
the Diag for Hash Bash April 4.
Shelton said he will decide the
case over the next few days.
The University denied NORML a
permit for the area when the group
applied last month.
Robert Carbeck, an attorney for
the American Civil Liberties Union
who represented NORML, said yes-
terday's case was similar to one in
1990, in which Shelton found for

wship promote Adam's Brother

The University Hospital, after
performing hundreds of silicone-gel
breast implants, has halted use of the
product after the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) declared a
voluntary moratorium on silicone-
gel implants due to health risks.
. Dr. Edwin Wilkins from the
Department of Plastic and
Reconstructive Surgery estimated
the University Hospital receives
complaints from two to three pa-

tients a week about problems
possibly related to the implants.
"In most cases it's not related to
the implants," Wilkins said.
However, he added the number of
complaints has risen from one com-
plaint every two weeks before the
Hospital spokesperson Mike
Harrison said before the moratorium
80 percent of breast implants were
done with silicone-gel nationwide.
Although the University's deci-
sion to stop using silicone-gel im-

plants is only temporary, Wilkins
said he would be surprised to see
doctors and patients go back to using
silicone-gel in light of "the long list"
of possible side effects.
"Frankly, I'm not comfortable
using them until I get more
information about them," Wilkins
He added, "Speaking only for
myself, I probably won't go back to
silicone-gel implants because of
some of the concerns that have been

that you heard in 1990," he said.
"The facts are essentially the same."
Carbeck criticized the April 1
forum the University has organized
to discuss drug-related issues.
"While NORML respects the op-
portunity to participate, it is by no
means a substitute," he said.
The forum - scheduled to take
place at Rackham Auditorium -
will be comprised of a four-person
panel discussion and a question-and-
answer session.
Carbeck added no NORML
members encouraged or condoned
marijuana use during the Hash Bash.
University attorney Maria Alfaro-
Lopez said the University refused
NORML's permit request because
the group did not follow Diag-usage
guidelines last year.
"The plaintiff's request for a
permit for sound amplification was

Tyson gets
six years
in prison
for rape
Tyson was sentenced yesterday to
six years in prison for raping a Miss
Black America contestant. His
protests of innocence were rejected
by a judge who said she believes he
could rape again.
Marion Superior Court Judge
Patricia Gifford refused to let the
former heavyweight boxing
champion remain free on bail while
his conviction is appealed, and
within two hours, he was behind
"Something needs to be done
about the attitude you displayed
here," the judge told Tyson.
Tyson slipped off his watch and
tie pin, handed them to his lawyer
and hugged 81-year-old Camille
Ewald, the upstate New York
woman who raised him from his
teen-age years as a promising boxer.
"I am not guilty of this crime,"
Tyson said in a rambling 10-minute
plea for leniency. He apologized for
his "crass" behavior during the 199r
pageant but said he never harmed his
accuser, 19-year-old Desiree Wash-
ington of Coventry, R.I.
"I didn't rape anyone. I didn't
hurt anyone," he said. "When I'm in
the ring, I break their ribs, I break
their jaws. To me, that's hurting
Gifford commended Tyson for
rising above his upbringing but
added: "I think from everything I've
read, we're looking at two different
Mike Tysons."
"As to whether you are capable
of committing this crime again, quite
honestly I am of the opinion that you
are," the judge said.
Harvard law professor Alan Der-
showitz, who is representing Tyson
in his appeal, dashed from the
courtroom to try to free Tyson.
Chief Judge Wesley Ratliff of the
Indiana Court of Appeals refused to
release Tyson immediately, but a

MSA fee cap pretrial hearing
canceled by anonymous call

by Jennifer Silverberg
Daily MSA Reporter
The pretrial hearing of a
Michigan Student Assembly member
regarding the MSA fee cap was
canceled by an anonymous phone
call Wednesday, causing confusion
and speculation about possible con-
nections to the upcoming election.
Rackham Rep. Roger De Roo
was supposed to appear before the
Court of Common Pleas (CCP)
Wednesday to discuss the constitu-
tionality of the MSA fee cap

Only De Roo, CCP Chief Justice
Sheri Washington and MSA defen-
dants Tim Darr and Brian Kight ap-
peared in assembly chambers at the
scheduled time; six of the seven
justices never appeared.
Washington said Assistant Chief
Justice Amy Lynch received a phone
call Wednesday from a male voice
who did not identify himself. The
caller said the pretrial hearing was
canceled. Lynch's housemate took
the message.
Washington called Lynch after
the justices failed to appear at the
11 iL'A .ve-MIN " i 1 i

hearing. "When I called Amy, the
guy who took the message for Amy
said the meeting was canceled. I was
shocked," Washington said. "The
only person who could cancel the
meeting was me.
"I'm just a little perplexed over
who would make a call like this to
cancel the meeting other than
myself. No one has that authority."
The five other justices called
Lynch Wednesday to confirm the
meeting, as is normal practice. The
housemate told the justices he had

Cowboys in Sweet 16

These Cowboys can shoot
straight, make no mistake about it.
Shutting down a potent Okla-

its target with scary efficiency last
weekend in Atlanta - will be the
key if Michigan is to advance past
the Cowboys tonight in NCAA

Oklahoma State scorched the

knocking down a tournament record
80 percent of its shots (28-for-35)
from the field. The Cowboys hit for
57 percent in the first round against
Georgia Southern.
