Pornographic movie banned at Maryland

PIGS ON PARADE

A pornographic movie screen-
ing was cancelled at the University
of Maryland at College Park last
Thursday after the Maryland Leg-
islature threatened to withhold
funds from the university if the
film was shown, the Diamondback
reported.
An amendment proposed by
Sen. Andy Harris stated that fund-
ing for Maryland colleges and uni-
versities would be stopped if they
showed XXX-rated films.
"I don't believe in censorship,"
Maryland Senate President Mike
Miller said in the article, "but at
the same time, I don't think that
film was appropriate in a state
building on a state campus."
Following the movie "Pirates
II: Stagnetti's Revenge," Planned
Parenthood was scheduled to lead
a discussion about safe sex prac-
tices.
"We thought it was an oppor-
tunity to have a dialogue revolv-

ing around pornography as a film
genre and promote student dis-
cussion," said Linda Clement, vice
president for Student Affairs.
To protest the administration's
decision to pull the movie, stu-
dents are organizing a screening
of the film tonight.
SPARTANS CELEBRATE
VICTORY IN DETROIT
An estimated 5,000 Spartan fans
gathered along the Detroit river-
front Saturday night to celebrate
the advancement of the Michigan
State University basketball team
to the National Championship, the
State News reported.
After winning 82-73 against
the University of Connecticut, the
green-and-white-clad crowd of
fans threw beer cups in the air and
screamed in happiness.
The party on the riverfront,
called the Big Dance Outdoor

Watching Party, will occur again
tonight for Spartan fans to watch
the game in downtown Detroit.
UCLA SPONSORS GREEN JOB FAIR
The University of California,
Los Angeles will host a green job
fair because of the increasing
popularity of careers involving
renewable energy, the Daily Bruin
reported.
A green job, also referred to as a
green-collar job, refers to a career
that deals with alternative energy
or environmental issues.
Kathy Sims, director of UCLA's
Career Center,.said students have
expressed a heightened interest in
green jobs over the past few years.
"There is a growing social con-
sciousness that puts sustainability
on a high-priority list," Sims said
in the article.
