on safety
Oby Sarah Schweitzer
Daily Administration Reporter
Of the four students chosen to
serve on the Campus Safety and
Security Committee, three have
mixed feelings about the Univer-
sity's deputized security force, and
one refused to comment.
The committee, which is made
up of four students, four faculty
members, and four staff members,
is responsible for overseeing and
advising the University administra-
tion on the implementation of the
12 recommendations made last
March by the Task Force on Cam-
pus Security and Safety. The depu-
tization of a campus police force
was among the recommendations.
Students selected for the
committee were first nominated
*through their school or college stu-
dent government, the Residence
Hall Association, Panhellenic, or
the Interfraternity Council (IFC)
and then interviewed by Assistant
to the Provost Kay Dawson.
LSA junior and committee
member Jennifer Eshelman said
Dawson asked her no specific
questions regarding her opinion on
deputization during the interview,
but rather focused on her back-
ground and her concerns about
campus safety issues.
"They weren't fishing for our
ideas on that issue
(deputization)," she said.
Eshelman said her own feelings
on deputization are mixed. Having

furor fails to
halt air raids

Alissa Leonard, president of the Family Housing Residents Council, addresses a crowd during a meeting
discussing a report on radioactive waste sites near Northwood Apartments. The meeting was held last night
at the community center on North Campus.

DHAHRAN, Saudi Arabia (AP)
- From the Kuwait coast to cen-
tral Iraq, U.S. and allied pilots con-
tinued their bombing of Iraqi tar-
gets yesterday, unimpeded by the
international furor over the Bagh-
dad bunker tragedy.
The U.S. command, in response
to the death of hundreds of civil-
ians in Wednesday's Baghdad
bombing, said it was looking for
new ways to limit such casualties.
The air war appeared to have
made major progress. The com-
mand said one-third of Iraq's tanks
and artillery in the battle zone
have now been destroyed.
Strategists are believed to be
shooting for 50-percent destruction
before ordering the ground assault.
The commander of British forces
in the Persian Gulf, Lt. Gen. Sir
Peter de la Billiere, told reporters
yesterday there are already
"proposed dates" for the offensive.
Two crew members of a U.S.
Air Force EF-111 were killed when
their plane went down in northern
Saudi Arabia, apparently after be-
ing damaged in combat. A British
Tornado bomber was lost while at-
tacking Iraqi airfields. Its two crew
members were listed as missing.
Body after body was pulled in
grisly procession from the rubble of
the underground structure bombed
by U.S. warplanes early Wednes-
day, while it was crowded with
civilians seeking refuge from air

The Iraqis said it was only a
civilian bomb shelter. But U.S. of-
ficials said they had indisputable
evidence, from radio intercepts,
reconnaissance photos, and other
sources, that the concrete facility
was being used as a military
command-and-control center. They
said they were unaware it harbored
any civilians.
Outside specialists said they
believed it might actually have
been a two-level, dual-use bunker.
The death toll remained uncer-
tain, in part because workers still
had not reached all areas of the
shattered structure.
Civil defense officials esti-
mated more than 500 died, mostly
women and children. A mortuary
director said 288 bodies had been
removed, including 91 children,
CNN's Peter Arnett reported. Re-
porters at the scene counted at
least 40 corpses, many decapitated
or missing limbs, extricated over
one 90-minute period yesterday.
Just a few hundred yards from
the ruins, 5,000 mourners marched
to the neighborhood cemetery to
bury some of the dead, in Iraqi
flag-draped coffins lowered into a
mass grave.
Later, speaking to reporters, the
Iraqi information minister, Latif
Jassim, delivered a more official
condemnation of the U.S. presi-
dent: "We are told that Hitler
burned the Jews. Now Bush is
burning Iraqi children."

Music blared across the Diag
yesterday afternoon as approxi-
mately thirty University students
and Ann Arbor residents gathered
to support New Queer Agenda's
"Dance on the Diag."
New Queer Agenda (NQA) -
a group established last fall -
seeks to change regental bylaw
14.06 to include a clause
prohibiting discrimination on the
basis of sexual orientation.
Members of the group said
they sponsored the event to
become more visible on campus
among students, faculty, and staff.
"We wanted to gain visibility.
It is an excuse to pass out flyers
and to show what New Queer
Agenda is all about," said LSA
junior Allison Van Norman.
The participants said they
wanted to send the administration
the message that they deserve the
same rights as other minority
groups included in the bylaw.
"Lesbians, gay men, and bi-
sexuals need the same rights as
everyone and we don't have

them," said Natural Resources
sophomore Jessica Belman.
LSA junior Matthew Porter
agreed. "We need to have the
same rights that other groups have
gotten. Homophobia is the only
reason the regents haven't granted
(equal rights) to gay men and les-
bians," he said.
Other students said lesbians,
gay men, and bisexuals deserved
to be included in the bylaw be-
cause they have not been granted
the same legal protection and
rights as other groups.
"The present policy is not
legally grounded. You can't take
someone to court and charge
them with discrimination on the
basis of sexual orientation," said
LSA junior Michael McCoy. "We
hope to send a message that the
University is blatantly
discriminating on the basis of
sexual orientation."
Julie DeLaurier said student
support for NQA is "excellent."
"A variety of students have
been receptive to our cause and
have come out to support us,
she said.

he may well have been predicting
the role reversal that has occurred

Playing at Joe Louis Arena
offers both teams an opportunity to

audience, as more than 10,000
tickets have been sold for each

University community split over bylaw change


by Henry Goldblatt
Daily Administration Reporter
While a group of students re-
vived the fight to change regental
bylaw 14.06 to include lesbians,
gay males, and bisexuals, Univer-
sity administrators contend the.
change is unnecessary.
The bylaw, which governs
University policy, affirms a com-

tected by a 1984 presidential pol-
icy, issued by former University
President Harold Shapiro. The
policy states the University's
stance against discrimination on
the basis of sexual orientation in
educational and employment de-

fectiveness of a policy does not
depend on the policy itself but
depends on how it is implemented
and how it is enforced. The exist-
