Representatives from each Greek
house are divided into two teams and
sent out with baseball bats to smash a
car for 30 seconds each.
The teams are then evaluated by
judges, hockey coach Red Berenson,
swim coach Jon Urbanchek,former
band leader George Cavender, who
choose winners.
Tomorrow's highlights include the
60th annual Mudbowl, a football con-
test held between Sigma Alpha Epsi-
lon (TAE) fraternity and Phi Delta
Theta fraternity. The game is a seven-
on-seven contest that will take place
behind LAE, 1408 Washtenaw Ave.
At halftime, Chi Omega sorority will
square up againstKappa Alpha Theta
sorority in a game described by ZAE
President Marc Schollett, an LSA se-
nior, as a form of speedball.
The Mudbowl game will begin at
11:30 am. and will be broadcast by
ABC-TV with sports correspondent
Brent Musberger reporting.

a solution.
"It's next to impossible to regu-
late this through doctrine or dogma,"
she said. "At the same time, it's para-
mount that we be able to have an
atmosphere where a student can grow
and sustain hurts if necessary, as long
as they don't destroy the student."
Past University speech codes have
been repealed after being ruled un-
constitutional or inappropriate.
Baker said censoring professors
could detract from educations.
"The level of teaching is the level
of transmitting the truth and would
transcend to the lowest possible value.
I think that's a great danger," he said.
The group agreed problems exist,
but solutions were harder to come by.
"How do we respond to a situation
where a professor needs to feel free to
teach and say what has to be said and,
at the same time, face the push of our
constituents who feel we need to em-
phasize a certain value?" asked Re-

gent Nellie Varner (D-Detroit).
Bollinger suggested the regents
issue reports on major political cor-
rectness cases at the University to
clarify their opinions.
Regent Philip Power (D-Ann Ar-
bor) said a central statement from the
University would help clear up con-
fusion. "The time you get in trouble
from the media is when an episode is
blown up out of proportion and out of
context," he said.
Bollinger said, "There ought to be
a committee set up to articulate what
our values are."
Values may include absolute free
speech as advocated by Baker or di-
versity as articulated by Varner.
Baker said, "University values is a
real pit in which you can fall," and
said there is a diversity of values
among the regents.
Varner said the University should
strive to bring people with diverse
values into discussions.
"You do have a great interplay of
different values," she said.
The group did not form any policy
on political correctness.

Panel reveals pain of living with AIDS .

"I spent a lot of time being scared,
not about being sick, but about other
people's reactions.... Friends would
leave the house with their legs crossed

because they
were afraid to
use our bath-
room or
wouldn't drink
from our
glasses. It
wasn't until my
husband passed
away last year
that people ac-
tually faced up

w rr nr s

their experiences living with AIDS.
Patrick Welsh, a 34-year old
former physician, led the panel.
Welsh, who contracted HIV in 1982,
received two phone calls yesterday.
One, Welsh said, was from a good
friend's mother who called to tell
Welsh that her son was dying from
AIDS. Welsh talked through his tears,
saying that his friend had dementia
and would not recognize him - so
there was no point in going to be with
him during his last days.
The other phone call was from
Lisa, who said she was scared to par-
ticipate in the panel discussion be-
cause she was afraid she would lose
her job as a waitress if word got out
about her health.
The common bond between the
four panelists was their willingness to
overcome their initial fear to speak
out about HIV and AIDS, and their
decision to become vocal advocates
of education.
Dan, a 21-year old hemophiliac,

tested HIV-positive in 1986.
His family and friends were un-
derstanding when they found out about
his condition, he added.
Although Dan did not discuss his
disease until his senior year in high
school, he has told nearly everybody
he knows since then.
"It was really a relief (to get it out
in the open). In some ways I regret it
because my illness has become my
life. But it has also been a relief," he
Welsh himself went through a two-
year period of denial when he found
out he had HIV in 1986.
Welsh contracted the disease when
he had a one-night stand at age 23.
Derrick, who also had trouble ac-
cepting his condition when he was
diagnosedin 1988, says he now hopes
to write about "what it means to be
Black, gay and HIV-positive."
"It's a hopeless feeling. You have
no where to turn and no one to talk
to," he said.

In a society obsessed with facts
and figures concerning AIDS, the quilt
has become the human face of the
epidemic. Each panel tells a different
story, giving life and distinction to
the person whom it commemorates.
The panels are at once unique vi-
sions of personality, loss and celebra-
tions of life - no matter how short.
These memorials are cathartic in their
display of love, tragedy and joy.

prise each panel from black leather

LSA senior Andrea Sirna com-
mented on the exhibition as she
watched one of the educational vid-
eos that accompany the display. "I did
a paper on the quilt as a public art
form for an art history class, and I
have afamily friend thatdiedof AIDS.
It's really sad to see them all because
it shows the personality of each indi-
vidual person. It's very emotional."
Rebecca Gastma, an LSA senior
and quilt monitor, added her thoughts.
"Just seeing each individual panel
is very touching and it's depressing to
see," she said. "But the fact that it can
have an emotional impact on the ob-
server might have a potential influ-
ence on someone's life decisions con-
cerning their sexual behavior and at-
titudes towards AIDS/HIV."
Four 12-by-12 foot sections of the
quilt, each containing eight 3-by-6
foot panels, are being displayed at the
Michigan League through Oct. 24.

are planned throughout the week.

The sections were brought to campus
through The NAMES Project Detroit
Metro Chapter as one of the many
AIDS Awareness Week events.
Monica Pardy is aNAMES Project
volunteer who has been involved with
the quilt since 1991. She lost her
brother to the disease in November of
that year, and her participation in the
project began when she made a panel
for him.
"After going to the whole display
of the quilt in Washington last Octo- 0
ber and seeing the need to get educa-
tion out there -and the need to allow
people that have lost loved ones to
AIDS to express their emotions and
their loss- Ijust couldn't walk away
from the quilt anymore."
Rackham student Christopher
Koelsch also commentedon the drama
of the quilt. "I've seen a pretty com-
plete version of it in Washington, and
it never gets any easier. It just brings
the issues of AIDS and HIV out of the
abstract and makes them more per-
sonal and real."
"We are all sorry about the murder
of Saftawi because we all saw in
Saftawi one of the Palestinian fight-
ers for peace," said Maj. Gen. Amnon *
Shahak, Israel's deputy chief of staff
and head of Israel's delegation.
Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, who visited Gaza shortly after
the slaying, said "we are really wor-
ried" about the impact of Saftawi's
slaying on the peace process.
He said the two earlier assassina-
tions appeared to be the result of feud-
ing within Arafat's Fatah organiza-
tion, but there was "no certainty" in-
fighting was behind Saftawi's kill-

Thursday marks the Seventh An-
nual Speakout: "an exceptional op-
portunity for survivors to speak on

agreed. "It really empowers them to
say that they are survivors."
