Cubans release
two 'U' students
Jan. 10, 1959 - Fidel Castro's
Cuban provisional government has
released two of four University stu-
dents detained on the Caribbean
island since the revolutionists seized
power New Year's Day.
Raquel Marrero and Eduardo
M)ichelena returned to Ann Arbor yes-
terday after having their passport papers

cleared by the Cuban government.
Two other students, Javier Palacios
and Jesus Rodriguez, still cannot be
contacted on the strife-torn island.
Rodriguez lives in Rodas, 35 miles
from Cienfuegos, where heavy fight-
ing occurred shortly before ex-dicta-
tor Fulgencia Batista's downfall.
High Court to hear
seven 'dirty words'
Jan. 10, 1978 - The Supreme Court
announced that it would hear a case con-
cering a Federal Communications Com-
mission ruling banning seven "indecent"
words from the airwaves.
The FCC ruled in 1975 that the seven
"cuss" words, which were the subject of
a George Carlin comedy monologue by
' New York's radio station WBAI-FM four
years ago, were indecent, and the FCC
imposed an absolute ban on their use.
The case was then brought to an
appellate court, which ruled it invalid,
calling it "overbroad and vague." The
appeals court agreed with the station's
owner, the Pacifica Foundation, that the
Carlin monologue was not obscene and
deserved protection under constitutional
free-speech guarantees.

Animal rights law
program may expand

By Laura Van Hyfte
For the Daily
After giving away prize money for years on "The
Price is Right," Bob Barker - the show's famous
host - is giving away money of his own for a cause
that is dear to him - animal rights law.
For the last few years, Barker has been donating
money to animal rights law programs at law schools
across the country.
The University's law school is now being con-
sidered, along with a few other schools, for a simi-
lar donation, said Steven

Columbia University, the
University of Califor-
nia at Los Angeles and
Harvard University have
already received dona-
tions for the endowment funds from Barker.
The gift funds periodic courses and seminars, as
well as visiting professors, to support teaching and
research at selected law schools.
Members of the Student Animal Legal Defense
Fund - the University's student chapter of the Ani-
mal Legal Defense Fund, a national organization
dedicated to animal protection through the legal
system - expressed excitement at the possibility of
increased funding for animal rights studies.
Jaime Olin, a Law student and member ofSALDF,
said he believes animal rights law is growing in pop-
ularity and has been denied due recognition in the
past. A donation from Barker would bring the issue
greater focus and attention, Olin said.
"It is necessary for more action to be taken,"
Olin said.


Pamela Grewal, a second year law student and
member of SALDF, said she believes donations
made for the purpose of promoting animal protec-
tion law courses and seminars would make it easier
for people to get involved with animal law issues.
"Not many people are exposed to that kind of
practical law. This would get more people inter-
ested," Olin said.
Some Law School students said they would
benefit the most from the program, as it attempts
to train a new generation of lawyers and judges
in the field of animal rights law, as well as raise
awareness of instances

lar area of interest that

still unknown at this time.
Harvard was the first to benefit from Barker's
donations, when it was awarded $500,000 in 2001.
Michael Armini, director of communications for
Harvard Law School, said Harvard's animal rights
law program grew as a result of this contribution,
but new additions to the staff were not made with
the money from Barker's donation.
"The gift we received did not support a perma-
nent addition to the faculty, but it has been used to
bring in visiting professors who can teach on this
subject," Armini said.
Harvard Law School was eager to accept funds
in order to promote awareness on animal protection
law, Armini said.
"It's our goal to make sure that our curriculum
covers a wide range of emerging fields, including
animal rights law," he said.

"We certainly welcome this and hope that from
this mandate Abu Mazen will lead the Palestinian
people on the path of reconciliation," he added.
Polls were open for 14 hours. The election, the
first presidential vote in nine years, proceeded large-
ly without interruption. In one incident, gunmen
fired in the air in an election office and in Jerusalem,
voters complained of confusing arrangements.
Final results were to be announced Monday
According to three exit polls, Abbas' main chal-
lenger, independent Mustafa Barghouti, won 20
percent, while the remaining five scored in the low
single digits.
Barghouti complained that the Central Election

lah, which funds some of the Palestinian militants,
is trying to undercut Abbas, according to people
close to the group.
Earlier this week, Hezbollah-funded gunmen
with ties to Abbas' ruling Fatah movement killed
an Israeli soldier in a West Bank ambush. Yesterday,
Hezbollah carried out a deadly cross-border attack.
An Israeli soldier, a French U.N. observer and a Hez-
bollah fighter were killed in the confrontation.
The Palestinian election came a day before Isra-
el's parliament was to approve a new, more mod-
erate coalition, seen as a boost for a planned Gaza
withdrawal. In the new alliance, Sharon will govern
side-by-side with elder statesman Shimon Peres,
leader othe modeate Labor tarty, and 'ai arfit'ect
of interim peace deals with the Palestinians. Sha-

with Abbas.

Commission had changed rules in mid-game, by
extending voting by two hours and by allowing vot-
ers to cast ballots at any location, rather than where
they lived or registered.
Analysts have said Abbas needs at least 60 per-
cent support to resume negotiations with Israel. "He
(Abbas) has a mandate from the voters," pollster
Khalil Shekaki said of the exit polls.

However, Abbas faces a lengthy list of challenges.
He must balance between Israel's demand to crack
down on militants and his efforts to co-opt the
gunmen. A iajor attack on Israel couldundermine
his credibility and sour peace hopes.
Major militant groups have indicated they are
willing to halt attacks and give -him. a chance.
