of the former couple's daughter,
Macomb County Circuit Judge
Raymond Cashen granted Smith cus-
tody of the 3-year-old in May, spark-
ing national outcry from single work-
ing mothers. Cashen insinuated that
part of his reasoning for naming Smith
as the custodial parent was that his
mother, Deborah Smith, stays at home
and could care for Maranda while
Smith attends classes at Macomb
Community College.
State law allows courts to reopen
custody cases ifeitherparent's fitness
changes, but both sides say that the

assault charges have never been a fac-
tor in the custody battle.
"Whether or not they found him
guilty was not going to affect my cus-
tody case. That wasn't my motive at
all," Ireland said. "My feeling was that
Steve committed a crime and he should
be punished for it."
The appeal will probably be heard
in December or January. Ireland said
she plans to file briefs Oct. 24. Smith
then has 18 days to prepare for trial.
"I just want to get to it as soon as
we can," Smith said.
Smith said he saw a change in the
way the jurors viewed Ireland. "They
looked beyond and saw a different
Jennifer Ireland than people are ac-
customed to," Smith said.

Bellamy Peace Corps director in July
1993. Bellamy is the first director of
the organization to have also served as
a volunteer. She worked in Guatemala
from 1963-1965.
Bellamy spoke about "The Peace
Corps and AIDS Education: Combat-
ing an International Epidemic," at the
School of Public Health. AIDS educa-
tion has been added to traditional Peace
Corps programs, such as nutrition edu-
cation, in countries like Cameroon and
She also spoke at the Union tracing
the Peace Corps' history and outlining
goals for its future. Such goals include
expansion to reach an annual member-
ship of 7,500 volunteers, which would
be a 20 year high.
In addition, the Peace Corps aspires
to add new countries to the long exist-
ing list. Recently, Cambodia signed an
agreement to receive volunteers, and
Clinton's talks with Nelson Mandela
have included mention of Peace Corps
volunteers traveling to South Africa.
The Peace Corps is presently op-
erating in 93 countries with programs
in education, business, environment,
health and agriculture.
"I think in some ways we're one of
the best faces that America puts on in
the rest of the world," Bellamy said.

interview with Bellamy and her
thoughts on the Peace Corps.

nity coordinator said, "The wholeGreek
community is moving forward into
modern Greek life. Things have to
change ... and the change has to come
from the students. The consequences
go beyond legal responsibility, the con-
sequences can last a lifetime."
Toward the end of the trial, Westol
gave examples of hazing activities
including sleep deprivation, the walk
of death, branding, the brick drop and
alcohol consumption.
"Because there are so many un-
known dynamics of the mind, we have
no idea what we're tampering with,"
Westol said.
Westol spoke of a former frater-
nity friend who suffered from a ner-
vous breakdown, which he later con-
nected to the psychological abuse of
his fraternity. Westol enforced pledge
education during his college years at
Michigan State University.
The program was supposed to be
part of the sanctions given to the
former Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity
after a recent hazing incident. On Sept.
4, a University student almost died as
a result of the hazing incident at the
house on 733S. State St.
The Detroit Free Press reported
yesterday that the executive officers of
the University have voted to support an
anti-hazing proposal, sponsored by a
University student.
On Oct. 5, the fraternity decided
to turn in its charter and is no longer
forced to uphold those sanctions.
Although the trial concentrated
mostly on fraternities, Westol men-
tioned several examples of the hazing
that goes on within sororities.
"In one house, pledges were asked
to dress provocatively and go over to
a fraternity and simulate sexual acts
as men cheer on," Westol said.
Westol opened the eyes of the audi-
ence as to how prevalent hazing is

David L. Westol speaks to Greek members last night at Rackham.

within the Greek community.
Jessica McHie, a member of Pi
Beta Phi sorority said, "Our sorority
doesn't haze, but this made me think
about my friends in fraternities and
what they are thinking."
Sigma Alpha Mu member Phil
Daman said, "Individual pledges and
active members of houses need to con-

duct themselves responsibly. Each
member is responsible for their own
actions. When you join a house, it
doesn'tmean you sign yourlife away..
First and foremost, you are an indi-
vidual and have a right to be."
The event was sponsored by the
Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic
Association and several fraternities.,

foreign minister, at his side.
Christopher said no specific mea-
sures have been selected. Other offi-
cials have suggested creation of a
buffer zone on the Iraqi side of the
border, excluding Iraqi tanks, artil-
lery and other heavy weapons.
France and Russia - which both
have trade ties with Iraq - have
balked at such a zone, with French
officials asserting that Iraq's internal
military movements were legal.

A senior U.S. official traveling
with Christopher said a "no-tank
zone" would seem to accomplish
the objective of the United States,
Britain and the Gulf states. But he
said there are other ways of reach-
ing that goal.
Anotherofficial said the measures
must be tough enough to have an
impact but cannot be so strict that
governments such as France and Rus-
sia would refuse to go along.
The GCC - whose members are
Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, United Arab
Emirates, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain
- said in a formal communique that

the allied military build-up "should
continue until they are sure that Ira
no longer poses a threat."
The council said Iraq's decision tQ
withdraw some of its troops in the
face of the allied countermeasures did
not erase the latest demonstration of
Hussein's willingness to use fored.
Christopher said flatly, "The crisis is
not over," despite Iraqi withdrawals:
A senior State Department official
said before Iraq's latest military ma.
neuver that many GCC officials were
losing theirGulf war distrust ofHussein
and his policies. Now, he said, the dis-
trust "has been restored completely."

troops has caused the return of many
anxieties for students and faculty who.
previously served.
Assistant Professor of Nursing
Penny Pierce served six months dur-
ing the Gulf War as a flight nurse in
the Navy, leaving behind her 13-year-
old daughter.
"You start waiting for the phone
call. It's very frightening because I
know that whenever there are troops
sent over that they will need medical
support. I know already what it means

to leave a family behind," Pierce said.
Others at the University were stu-
dents who were forced to postpone
their educationand their livesswhen
the Gulf War began. Randolf served
in the Navy in both Desert Shield and
Desert Storm.
"When I saw on Friday that
Saddam Hussein had sent troops to
the border I felt like I was going to
throw up. You make a commitment
when you're 19 and all of a sudden
you're 25 and Uncle Sam comes call-
ing. I'm still in the reserves right now
and I'd like to graduate," he said.
Along with individual concerns,
U.S. protection of Kuwaiti oil from
Iraq is a key issue on campus.
"Economically, this is essential.
We all depend on the availability of
oil," Organski said. "It was absolutely
right for us to send troops over in
1990, and one of the major results
was the stabilityof oil prices and the
subsequent economic recovery of the
United States. Oil prices fell Friday

because we assured the Arab states thatn
they will be protected."
Although troops were sent to Ku-.
wait, many at the University do not -
predict a second war against Saddamt
"Unless Saddam Hussein pro-
vokes us, I don't think we're looking
at another war," Collier said.
While the Iraqi pledge to retreat
has smoothed many worries, some
remain wary.
"There are all kinds of games you
can play moving troops. You can move.
them out and you can move them
back in. The American governmen
has made it very clear they won't
tolerate this," Organski said.
Philip Rosi, an LSA senior and Navy-.
Reserve Officers' Training Corps bat-
talion commander, says the recent send-
ing of troops to Kuwait is not directly
affecting undergraduate students.
"I really don't sense any urgency
towards me personally, or towards
the others in ROTC," Rosi said.
