LANSING (UPI) - Perry Bullard,
Ann Arbor's state representative, is
considering the need for a state law
banning rituaf hazing by fraternities
and other campus groups, but an aide
said yesterday legislation may not offer
an effective means of control.
Sparked by the case of a University of
Michigan hockey player who was strip-
ped naked and left in the cold a year
ago, Bullard and a group of University
students are studying possible controls
for hazing and initiation rites.
. LAWS IN New York and New Jersey
where a college freshman died seven,
years ago during a fraternity initiation,
already control dangerous activities by
organizations inducting members.
Under the New Jersey law, any
hazing results in a disorderly conduct
charge and activities that result in
bodily harm warrant criminal charges.
The New York law calls for the
removal from campus of any group
which "recklessly or intentionally en-
dangers mental or physical health or
involves the forced consumption of
liquor or drugs for the purpose of
initiation or affiliation" and the ex-
pulsion of individual violators from
"WE WOULD be happy to see the
prospect of regulating this without in-
fringing on the civil liberties of the
groups involved," said Barbara Elder-
sveld of Bullard's staff.
She said Bullard is concerned the
New York law would violate the
privacy of fraternal organizations
because secret activities must be
revealed before violators can be
"THERE ARE existing laws we can
use in case of severe abusive treat-
ment," said Eldersveld.
The student group will meet with
Bullard again this fall to determine if
legislation to deal with hazing should be
introduced. One possible solution,
however, may be education programs
to warn of hazing's dangers, Eldersveld
John Howe, president of Michigan
State University's Interfraternity
Council, said the fraternal
organizations would "support
legislation 100 percent."
B Farmyard diplomacy
BRITISH AND AMERICAN officials pitched in to solve a weighty
problem, and it looks as though the Archbishop of Canterbury may
finally get his gift pig. Archbishop Robert Runcie, who raises Berkshire
hogs as a hobby, was given the pig during a visit to Iowa last May. But
Britain's strict animal health rules made it difficult to import the hog home.
A breakthrough came recently when the British agreed to waive some of the
stricter requirements for animal imports. "Things look good now," said
Kirk Ferrell, district representative in the office of U.S. Sen. Roger Jepsen,
(R-Iowa), who has had a major role in the negotiations. "We're waiting for
the British foreign minister to issue an import permit, which they have
agreed to do. They're making a special case, and they have waived some of
the regulations so we can get the hog shipped over." Besides British and
American officials and Jepsen's office, the negotiations have involved
veterinarians, church officials, and an exporting firm, Global Swine Ex-
change of Iowa, Ltd., based in Ames, Iowa. Transporting the pig, however, is
a weightier matter now than it was in May. The pig's weight has increased
from 40 to 100 pounds. Q
