PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -
The yellow sprouted early this
year. But the bouquets were not
signs of a spring come early -
rather a somber reminder of a
country at war.
"Supporting our troops should
always be uppermost in our
minds," said Daniel Bogan, Mayor
of Fall River, Mass., at a ribbon-
tying ceremony last month.
"Yellow ribbons will serve as a
reminder."
The symbol has aroused contro-
versy as well. A Pennsylvania hos-
pital has barred employees from
decorating with yellow ribbon. A
Rhode Island columnist calls them
"flowers of fascism." A Florida
store manager fired an employee
for wearing a ribbon in violation of

company policy, but the decision
was reversed by embarrassed com-
pany executives.
The yellow ribbon's current sta-
tus as a token of support for U.S.
troops overseas seems unassail-
able, but it is far from clear how
the symbol originated.
"We've searched books on
American lore and symbols and
found nothing" explaining its ori-
gin, said Barbara Cook, a refer-
ence librarian at the Providence
Public Library.
The Archive of Folk Song in
the Library of Congress has been
responding to inquiries with a six-
page reprint of a 1981 newsletter
that attempts to outline the begin-

Luther King Jr. Day with no cut in
pay, and;
that the University fund a re-
search project to investigate
racism in the military - specifi-
cally, military recruitment prac-
tices which disproportionately tar-
get people of color.
The organization has set Feb. 7
as the deadline for Duderstadt to
respond to the demands.
"Our goal is to have all of the
demands accepted. While hopes

are high, our expectations are
not," said first-year graduate stu-
dent Regina Freer.
If Duderstadt does not accept
the demands or ignores them, the
organization will attempt to ac-
complish its goals by other meth-
ods. Freer did not rule out the pos-
sibility of protests or sit-ins.
Second-year Rackham student
Tracye Matthews said, "While the
list of demands is important, it is
not our organization's sole activity.
Regardless of what Duderstadt
may decide, People of Color
Against War and Racism is com-

Guzzardo, who runs East
Quad's Halfway Inn, reported that
business has not been noticeably

possibly because it's far away.

Guzzardo added that her
establishment does more business
during winter term because cold
weather discourages some
residents from eating out.
Ray Piechocki, head supervisor
of the University's snack bars, said
business is busier at the Markley
and Bursley snack bars. He agreed
that the increased business can be
attributed to the colder weather.
To attract business, South Quad

It cites a number of possibili-
ties, from the 1973 folk song "Tie
a Yellow Ribbon 'Round the Ol
Oak Tree," popularized by the
group Tony Orlando and Dawn, to
the 1949 John Wayne movie, She
Wore a Yellow Ribbon.
Yellow ribbons last lined the
nation's streets 10 years ago, when
52 American hostages returned af-
ter 444 days of captivity in Iran.
That phenomenon was likely@
triggered by Penne Laingen, wife
of ex-hostage Bruce Laingen, who
tied a large yellow ribbon around a
tree in front of their Bethesda,

programs in the dorms, in church
meetings, and through minority
counselors."
The organization's platform
opposes "the racist nature of U.S.
foreign policy" and supports a
world order more favorable to
Third World countries ."
In addition, the platform main-
tains that the U.S. administration
and media have intentionally cre-
ated and promoted "racist images
of Arabs, Arab-Americans and
Muslims as terrorists and less than
human."
has increased advertising within
the residence hall, offering
coupons for lunch and dinner
specials.
Don Mask, director of Food
Service at the Union and North
Campus Commons said the three
establishments in the Union
accepting Entree Plus have.
experienced increased sales. The
Michigan Union Grill, Little
Caesars, Dagwood's, and the North
Campus Commons cafeteria and
snack bar have accepted Entree
Plus since early January.
Fleming said high-level waste,
which comes from the fuel used to
operate a nuclear reactor, poses
more of a problem.
Fleming said the high-level
waste produced by the nuclear re-
actor in the Phoenix Memorial
Laboratory is the property of the
federal government.
He added the University takes
no part in the transfer or the stor-
age of the high-level radioactive
waste produced by the reactor. He
said it is not a problem for the.
community, the state, or the Uni-
versity.
The Department of Energy
(DOE) ships the waste to a pro-
cessing plant in South Carolina,
where it is reprocessed to be used
again, he said.
we need to shed light on are eco-
nomic. I'm living independently
and and I want to be able to sup-@
port myself. I need a pay raise to
support myself," she said.
Mishkin added that she thought
the purpose of the rally was to fo-
cus on issues pertaining more to
the campus, and less to the war.
Stacy McGaugh, an Astronomy
TA and GEO member, also be-
lieved the focus of the rally should
have been local issues.

Undergraduates also came to
support GEO members.

He added that an accidental
encounter with radioactive waste

produces in research labs, the hos-
pital, and the reactor, are kept in
separate containers labeled ra-
dioactive waste until they can be
stored in permanent drums.
Martin said the drums are made
of high-level steel. The durability
of the drums is tested by subject-
ing them to a direct, broadside hit
by a train moving at full speed.
He said that compared to many
industrial poisons, dioxins, and
PCBs, low-level radioactive waste
is not a problem. For example, ra-
dioactive waste is easily detected
and measured whereas other poi-
sons can be neither detected nor
measured.
Fleming said he does not be-
lieve a waste site would be a prob-
lem.
GEO

Mark Buchan, a classical stud-
ies TA and GEO member, also ral-
lied for support against the war.
"We just want them (the Uni-
versity) to know where we stand in
regard to the war. By coming to-
gether like this we can show them
how united we are," Buchan said.
However not all members of
GEO came to voice support for the
anti-war stance. Tracy Mishkin, an
English TA, wanted GEO to focus
on other issues.
