Alcohol policy raises Iri

Tomorrow marks the two-week an-
niversary of the University of Notre
Dame administration's decision to
drastically tighten its alcohol policy.
The new policy touched off a series of
student protests against both the
alcohol policy and the lack of student
input in administrative decisions.
About 2,500 of the school's 10,000
students spontaneously rallied against
the policy when it was announced. The
protest lately became more organized.
under the leadership of Rob Bertino,
president of the student body.
Although the administration is stan-
ding by the alcohol policy, which limits
the number of people allowed in a dorm
room and prohibits alcohol parties in
dorm lounges unless everyone present
is over 21, the administration is now
reviewing the amount of student input
in policy decisions.

Harvard women protest
More than 100 Harvard students
marched last week from Memorial
Church through Harvard Square in the
fourth annual "Take Back the Night"
march to protest sexual harassment.
The march was led by the Radcliffe
Union of Students (RUS).
The emphasis of this year's march
was to include sexual harassment both
on the streets and at the university. A
study conducted by Associate Dean of
the Faculty Sidney Verba indicated
that one out of every five Radcliffe
students will be harassed by an
authority figure before she graduates.
The marchers carried candles and
shouted as they marched through Har-
vard square stopping in front of several
undergraduate men's clubs.
The demonstrators specifically stop-
ped in front of the Pi Eta Speakers Club
to protest a recent club newsletter
which referred to women as "slob-
bering bovines."
RUS wants the Harvard ad-
ministration to follow through on Ver-
ba's proposal to create a central office
for education about sexual harassment.
"We're not just here to take back the
night this time," said Christina
Spaulding, former RUS president.
"Sexual coersion is everywhere and
what we're here for tonight is to take
back our lives from sexism."

Md. club loses recognition
over hazing incident
The University of Maryland has
withdrawn its recognition of an
honorary society of fraternity leaders
over a hazing incident that ended with a
21-year-old being taken to a hospital.
Judicial Programs Director Gary
Pavela made the ruling Wednesday
against the Gate and Key society based
on findings of a student judicial board
The board found the society guilty of
"recklessly causing physical harm" to
Carlos Restrepo, who was hospitalized
for four days on April 10 with internal
bleeding after he tore his esophagus
while chugging a pitcher of beer.
Pavela said he considered the san-
ctions light but that they should serve
as a warning to other groups.
The students board also ruled that
Restrepo's consent to take part in the
beer chugging did not relieve the

society of any blame.
Society officals say they will appeal
the board's findings and Pavela's

Illinois State grave
robbers confess
Following their attorney's advice,
two Illinois State University students
have admitted to planting a human
forearm on University grounds. The
confession came after several people
contacted the police and implicated the
two in the grave robbing incident.
Police turned the students over to the
Student Judicial Office, which is
keeping their identities confidential.
The students will not be prosecuted by
police because they turned themselves
in and because there is probably not
enough evidence, Police Lt. Don Knapp
The maximum penalty is expulsion
from the school, according to the
Student Judicial Office. If prosecuted
in court, the students would have faced
up to one year in prison and a $1,000
fine. - The Daily Vidette
Princetonians search for
Two Princeton students have set out
to find where the girls are.
Sophomores Seth Rachlin and George
Vanhoomissen have visited more than
50 women's colleges on the East Coast
in six-weeks to write a book on finding
college women. They have traveled
over 8,000 miles by car and a few
thousand more in the air.
The pair said they came up with the
idea for the book, which they hope to
publish later this year, after spending
too many Saturday nights alone and
discovering the story of a Princeton un-
dergrad in the '60s who wrote about
Although they would not pick a
favorite, the roadtrippers cited Smith
and Wellesley as good destinations for
those in search of girls. As for Prin-
ceton women, Rachlin says they don't
have to worry. He likes to think his
work is "supplementing Princeton
women, not replacing them."

Mass. denies housing
refund to students
The University of Massachusetts at
Amherst denied a housing fee refund to
residents of a women's dormitory who
were repeatedly forced to evacuate
their dorm last fall during a series of
small fires.
The dormitory was the scene of at
least 16 fires set in trash barrels, atop
desks, and on bulletin boards.
150 of the 177 dorm residents signed a
petition which requested a return of the
$621 housing fee.
An administration committee
recommended a refund of $71 for the in-
convenience to the students. But the
vice-chancellor for student affairs
rejected the proposal, saying that he
did not find the residents' rationale
convincing. - The Chronicle o01

Illinois students begin
toilet paper drive
A campaign to collect toilet paper for
students at Southern Illinois University
is on a roll.
The university's annual toilet paper
crunch came to a head April 26, when
junior Chris Neesley wrote the student
newspaper urging school officials to
"reconsider their decision to cut off our
toilet paper supply."

Steve Kirk, a spokesman for the
university, said it has a policy of giving
each student only five free rolls.
So Thursday, Burt's Sandwich Shop
came to the youths' aid by offering a
free roll of paper to anyone who buys a
breakfast and presents a student iden-
tification card.
Meanwhile, in a nearby town,
millionaire Waymon Presley added an
old-fashioned touch to the toilet paper
Presley said he would have a pickup
truck parked near Carbondale's
University Mall on Saturday to collect
alternatives to paper for the students -
catalogues and corn cobs. "We used to
have those catalogues and corn cobs in
the country where I lived, so I know
they'll work," he said.

Harvard bear abducted
A group of subversives calling them-
selves the Cantabrigian Hibernative
Army pulled off the "bearnapping" of
the century at Harvard, last month
when they abducted a stuffed grizzly
from his graduate school dormitory.
The bear's owner, graduate biology
student Gary Rosenberg, said he retur-
ned from a skiing vacation in Montreal
to find Rubenstein, the stuffed bear,
gone. A note in the bear's place said it
was being "treated well" and that
Rosenberg should "wait for further in-
Since the abduction, Rosenberg has
received two ransom notes and a recor-
ded telephone message demanding 200
"clams" for the bear. Rosenberg said
he was instructed to leave the money in
a book on the shelf of a campus library.
Instead of depositing the money,
Rosenberg left a note demanding more
proof that the bear was safe. Rosenberg
has received photographs of the bear
blindfolded and one showing Ruben-
stein gagged and with a plastic bag
over his head.
Rosenberg said the bear was a
regular at his review sessions. As
istated by one of his students, "meeting
the bear has been one of the greatest.
educational experiences of my Harvard
career." - The Harvard Crimson
