Some representatives from iner-
national student groups said the bill
would be too rigid making no allowan-
ces for language barriers.
Several students, however, contend
that TAs who cannot speak English
should ot be hired by the University.
The University tried to solve the
problem in 1982 through a class en-
titled, "Classroom Communication for
Foreign TAs," but it was cancelled due
to budget cuts.

Arizona football banned
from TV
The University of Arizona's football
team has been forbidden to play in any
postseason bowl games and barred
from television appearances until 1986.
The football team had 18 violations of
the National Collegiate Athletic
Association codes including a "slush
fund," to pay players and subsidize
coaches who made loans to players.
The violations occured between 1971
and 1979, but the charges were brought
against the University by the NCAA
last December. The university has
decided not to appeal the two-year
penalty, which begins in 1984 since the
school has already signed NCAA con-
tracts to have games televised this
r year.

chocolate
While some students at the Univer-
sity of California in Berkeley hit the
books to study for final exams last mon-

vard University last week gave
preliminary approval for a special five-
year medical program.
The plan proposes an additional year
of interning which is not included in
traditional four-year medical school
programs at most universities. The
five-year program, entitled "The New
Pathway," would decrease class size
and give students a chance to work
closely with faculty, use computers and
do independent studies.
THE PROPOSAL is a modified ver-
sion of a plan proposed last year which
would have pulled sophomore premeds
at Harvard into medical school for a
seven-year program.
The seven-year proposal, which is
similar to the Inteflex program at the
University of Michigan, was criticized
by several medical school professors.
They said condensing medical
school and undergraduate classes
would unfairly rush students into the
medical profession without a chance to
explore other career options.
The five-year plan is a com-
promise, pulling 25 students from the
165 admitted to Harvard's medical
school. Under the plan, students in the
program would live with other medical
students, but they would be enrolled in
different classes.
Medical school faculty support the
plan because the smaller classes will
foster more individual attention. The
plan is scheduled to take effect in 1986.

'Yellow-toxin' not bee
exerement, govt. says

WASHINGTON (AP) -The State De-
partment yesterday dismissed as false
the scientific speculation that the
deadly "yellow rain" toxin
the United States used as a
weapon in Southeast Asia may be little
more than excrement from bees.
Alan Romberg, the department's
deputy spokesman, referring to what he
called "the great bee caper," said the
evidence just doesn't hold together that
this is the cause of yellow rain attacks.
"The hypothesis that yellow rain -
tricothecene mycotoxin - may be a
natural phenomenom has in fact been
exhaustively studied and subsequently
rejected, by responsible and qualified

scientists in and out of government,"
Romberg said.
The United States blames yellow rain
attacks for the deaths of thousands of
people in Laos, Cambodia and
Afghanistan.
In the first place, Romberg said, one
- sample drop of residue containing the
deadly toxin weighed 300 milligrams and
was "certainly more than a bee could
drop."
Secondly, he said that because
Tricothecene mycotoxin in amounts
sufficient to incapacitate or kill human
beings is "certainly suficient to kill a
bee ... a bee could not survive to excrete
the toxin."
