Bomb
explodes
'in London
tailway
LONDON (AP) - A bomb ex-
ploded at Victoria station during
morning rush hour yesterday, 45
minutes after a caller claiming to
Cpresent the IRA warned of bombs
t all of London's train stations,
police said. One man was killed
and 40 people were wounded.
The 7:46 a.m. explosion sent
screaming commuters running from
the train terminal, some trailing
blood across the concourse. Rush-
hour rail traffic was halted for
hours as police searched on their
hands and knees for clues.
No group immediately claimed
responsibility for the blast at
Victoria,; one of London's two
main train stations.
The warning was delivered by a
man with an Irish accent who said:
"We are the Irish Republican
Army. Bombs to go off at all
mainline stations in 45 minutes,"
reported Commander George
Churchill-Coleman, Scotland
Wfard's anti-terrorist chief.
The explosion came less than
three hours after a bomb exploded
at~ Paddington station, the city's
other main station. Only a dozen
employees were on duty, but no
one was injured.
Churchill-Coleman said the call
was only one of a number of
*hreats following the Paddington
explosion, and the others
"transpired either to be false or
malicious." fain McGregor, deputy
chief constable of the British
Transport Police, said his
department gets half a dozen bomb
threats a day.
Churchill-Coleman said the
warning was passed to the British
Transport Police, who were
*already searching all the main
railway terminals when the blast
occurred at Victoria.
The bomb, which was hidden in
a, trash can on the concourse, "was
quite deliberately intended to
maim and kill," he said.
BritishRail Chair Robert Reid
said the caller's timing may have
been a deliberate attempt to make
his warning appear to be a hoax.
"Let's face it, as soon as you
have an'incident, your telephone
lines are choked with hoax calls.
Since these two incidents we've
had hoax calls all the way up the
line," Reid said in an interview on
British Broadcasting Corp. radio.
British Rail closed all mainline
stations after the bombings, sus-
pending service that carries half a
million people into London every
day.
Several hours after the Victoria
blast, Heathrow airport, Britain's
busiest, was evacuated briefly yes-
terday after police received a
vague bomb threat, an airport
spokesperson said. Police searched

but found nothing.

Maryland passes most i beral
law protecting abortion rights

by Sunil lyengar
"We can achieve so much with
a little effort."
That's how Recycle-East Quad
Co-founder Alissa Strauss de-
scribed the pilot program which
has brought glass, aluminum, and
tin recycling to East Quad.
Currently, all residence halls
recycle newspaper and corrugated
cardboard products through the
University's Housing Recycling
program. But if the East Quad pro-
ject succeeds, other residence
halls might adopt Recycle-East
Quad's techniques.
Strauss and East Quad Resident
Fellow Dave Dalu organized the
project in October. Last month the
group received a helping hand
when Housing Recycling gave the
dorm access to a pick-up van for
removing recyclables.
"This program is basically a
learning experience for us," said
Housing Facilities Director George
San Facon. "(Recycle-EQ) and
Housing Recycling seem to be go-
ing the same direction ... Hope-
fully,hthrough experience, we'll be
able to solve part of the puzzle."
San Facon's "puzzle" involves
building an appropriate strategy for
implementing Housing Recycling's
long-term goals. San Facon be-
lieves the Recycle-EQ program is
a perfect opportunity to test the
practicality of recycling glass, tin,
and metals throughout campus.
"It's a question of maximum ef-
ficiency for the amount of re-
sources used ... There are a lot of
complications involved in handling
and processing (the materials) be-

fore they can be recycled," San
Facon said.
Recycle-EQ has been struggling
to solve these problems. Hall rep-
resentatives work to keep students,
aware of glass, tin, and aluminum
deposit sites. Every week at the
loading dock, hall representatives.
package and prepare the recy-;
clable materials for the pick-up
van to deliver to Ann Arbor's recy-
cling center.
"I'm very optimistic about this
program," said Deba Patnaik, East
Quad's Resident Director.
Recycle-EQ members echoed
Patnaik's optimism. Last Wednes-
day marked the first successful
pickup of recyclable glass, tin and
aluminum from the residence hall.
Housing Recycling is now plan-
ning to extend this project to the
dining hall and the Halfway Inn
restaurant, located in East Quad.
Strauss credited the hall repre
sentatives for their continual ef-
forts. "If it weren't for the other
helpful students, we wouldn't be
functioning," she said. Strauss also
urged all students to "give the
matter (of recycling) a second
thought."
Dave Dalu added that he too
hopes this enthusiasm will spread
to other dorms. "There are so many
readily handled materials that
could easily be recycled ... I;
would be great if (all dorms) could
first step up newspaper and card-
board recycling to a 100 percent .
I'd love to see that happen," Dald
said.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -
Gov. William Schaefer signed into
law yesterday a bill that would
protect a woman's right to abortion
in the event the U.S. Supreme
Court's Roe vs. Wade decision is
overturned.
The Maryland House sent the
measure to the governor on a vote
of 84-52, ending a round of intense
lobbying and a yearlong battle.
Abortion advocates hailed the
law as a major victory. Abortion
foes vowed to launch a petition

drive to allow voters to reject the
law.
"By securing a woman's right
to choose, the Maryland Legisla-
ture is taking a necessary and vital
step toward safeguarding the
health and lives of Maryland
women," said Kate Michelman,
director of the National Abortion
Rights Action League.
"It will become the most lib-
eral, the most extreme, abortion
law in the entire 50 states," said
Democratic Delegate Timothy

Maloney, an anti-abortion leader.
The pro-choice bill grants adult
women unrestricted access to abor-
tions up to the time when a fetus is
able to survive outside the womb.
After that, abortions could be per-
formed only to protect a woman's
health or in cases where the fetus
is deformed.
The measure also requires that
at least one parent must be noti-
fied when an underage girl seeks
an abortion.

"I'm a little disappointed. I

PANEL

pressed disappointment with the
Regents. "Theonly reaction by
the Regents was Deane Baker's
comment that the actions of 1954
were appropriate," Davis said.
The Associated Press quoted
Baker last November as saying,
"It's my personal opinion that this
matter (the suspensions), in its
original case and in review, was
handled appropriately."
Baker verified the quote yes-
terday and added, "The judge-
ments made by the (former) Pres-

ident of the University (Harlan
Hatcher) and the various commit-
tees stand on their own merit."
University President James
Duderstadt refused comment and
left before the panel discussion
began.
Adam Kulakow, a 1989 Uni-
versity alumnus, produced
"Keeping in Mind," a documen-
tary video about Davis, Markert,
and Nickerson, for his honors En-
glish thesis.
"I was shocked by how little
Deane Baker understood about
the situation," Kulakow said. "I
don't even know if he is capable
of understanding the heroic ac-

tions taken by the three of them."
O'Neil praised Davis, Nicker-
son, and Markert as heroes.
"They are fighters and sur-
vivors in the best sense. Their
courage has inspired us all,"
O'Neil said.
O'Neil also addressed the dan-
gers inherent in limiting free
speech.
"In so many cases outstanding
people were denied rights that
were theirs, because of political
beliefs and associations. How-
ever, most of these judgments
were dead wrong," O'Neil said.
Markert agreed on the impor-

tance of preventing future trans-
gressions of free speech.
"The battles that we three
fought were conspicuous easy bat-
tles, other types are difficult to
fight. The shape of the University
is determined by those subtleties
and such forces are necessary to
protect academic freedom,"
Markert said.
Hollingsworth was pleased
with the 400 person turnout.
"I saw people here of all ages
and that speaks well for the Uni-
versity community," she said.
"We had a very caring and recep-
tive audience."

sity needs to do that," Davis
added.
Markert, a research and ani-
mal sciences professor at North
Carolina State University, agreed
with Davis.
"To take such a negative view
of us when there was nothing to
justify it, is wrong. It reflected a
general weakness on the part of
the administration, notpus,"
Markert said.
In 1954, Davis, Markert, and
Nickerson were called to testify
before a Congressional Commit-
tee on Un-American Activities.
All invoked their fifith amend-
ment rights and refused to answer
committee questions about their
political associations.
For these actions, the three
were suspended without salary,
and Nickerson was denied the
summer portion of his fiscal year
salary. Subsequent hearings and
committee actions resulted in
three different outcomes. Markert
was ultimately reinstated; but
UN

Nickerson - a tenured professor
- and Davis were dismissed from
the University.
Nickerson, a Pharmacology
professor at McGill University,
said he was bothered most by the
1954 Administration's "mistate-
ment of fact".
"Harlan Hatcher, the Univer-
sity president in 1954, said he fol-
lowed the recommendations of
the faculty, but that is completely

wrong. They didn't want to sus-
pend us," Nickerson said.
"What I resent most is that
Hatcher is lying when he says we
were suspended with pay because
I wasn't. Someone needs to get
him to admit to the truth before it
dies with him," he added.
Davis said he thought the pur-
pose of the lecture was to prevent
further actions from happening
today.
