Betts said although he has not com-
piled any numbers, from his observa-
tions, the number of incidents have
declined. "From what I've been told
and checking with custodians, it seems
to have ended the problem."
He added that his initial
impresssion is that the activity has not
moved to any other area of campus.
Aaron Rank, a facilitator of the
East Quad Group for Lesbians, Gay
Men, and Bisexual People, said he
was leery of the changes made by the
University. Rank feels the changes
invade the privacy of men in the

homophobic people within the Uni-

it will go on."
Despite the criticism, Regent
Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor) said he
was pleased the University has taken
steps to halt the bathroom activity.
Baker said he has complained about
the problems in the restrooms for many

He said the University must show
that it will not tolerate illegal sexual
behavior. "It is a matter of safety of
the students, staff and employees."

bathrooms last Febuary.
Meeks said the changes are only
superficial and the activity will ever-

Despite the consensus on other
measures, the abortion debate that
introduced rancor into the conference
Wednesday came charging back late
in the day, renewing the agonizing
search for common ground among
the world's diverse value systems.
A special committee emerged from
nearly 30 hours of wrangling with yet
another draft of the 113-page
document's crucial abortion para-
graph, one that it hopes will satisfy all
-- or at least nearly all - the 182
national delegations. But even as it
was being "shopped around" infor-
mally, the Egyptians raised a new
Still, the latest revision would
probably be put before the
conference's main body today in what
is essentially a take-it or leave-it form,
according to a member of the U.S.
delegation. This move is intended to
force the Vatican, which has been
battling the paragraph, and its allies
to declare themselves one way or the
So far the Holy See has not taken
this step, thus forcing negotiations to
continue softening language whose
central goal originally was to urge
governments to deal with the high
disease and death rate from illegal,
unsafe abortion. The latest draft is
largely given over to urging govern-
ments to prevent abortion, both by not
promoting it as a form of family plan*
ning and through stronger family plan-
Before the latest version of the
paragraph was issued, a Vatican offi-
cial criticized press accounts that said
the Holy See alone opposed the para-
graph or commanded only a handful
of allied countries.
"The Holy See does not stand
alone," he said, after asking not to b
named. "What we're looking at is not
as some elements of the press pre-
sented it - that it's simply the Holy
See against everyone else. That is a
propaganda exercise, far from the
truth. We have more countries than
15 on board."
One of the changes in the latest
revision to the abortion paragraph,
called 8.25, tries to deal with the
church's unwillingness to accept any
language that appears, even tacitly, to
accept that abortion could be legal.
The previous version said, "In cir-
cumstances in which abortion is le-
gal, such abortion should be safe."
The newest version - showing how
subtle nuances can be in these pro-
ceedings - changes "legal" to "not
against the law."
