Prosecutors rest; defense stillgoing

LOS ANGELES - Vividly demon-
strating the strange burly burly that has
overcome the murder trial of O.J.
Simpson in its closing days, prosecu-
tors rested their rebuttal case yesterday
even though Simpson's lawyers have
yet to conclude their main case.
In court, most of the day was devoted
to a last exchange of blows over an FBI
shoe-print specialist who delivered im-
portant testimony for the prosecution
and who sparred yesterday with de-
fense lawyer Barry Scheck.
Having spent two days debunking the
defenseposition that imprints at the crime
scene might suggest a second assailant,
Agent William Bodziak weathered
Scheck's sarcastic cross-examination,
intended partly to restore confidence in
defense expert Henry Lee, whose testimony
was the object of Bodziak's criticism.
Outside court, Simpson attorney
Johnnie L. Cochran Jr. predicted testi-
mony would conclude this week and
closing arguments would commence
next Tuesday-coincidentally, the one
year anniversary of jury selection.
Scientists hope to grow breast implants
While lawyers brawl over the dangers of silicone breast implants, scientists are
exploring a startling procedure that creates natural tissue inside breasts -in effect
a "grow your own" alternative.
The experimentation is years behind other substitutes for silicone implants that
use fats or vegetable oils, but it is the only method that doesn't leave foreign
substances in the body.
Silicone has been blamed by hundreds of thousands of women for serious
immune system diseases, causing lengthy and fractious legal cases.
"We've been trying to outsmart the body's immune system. These fellows have
come up with a concept that works with it," said James Martin, research director
at Carolinas Medical Center.
The experiments were begun last fall at the Charlotte, N.C.-based hospital and
at the University.
If early work on laboratory animals succeeds, the researchers, within 3-5 years,
will remove a tissue sample from somewhere in a woman's body, use it to grow
additional cells in the lab, then implant the cells in the woman's breast. There they
should multiply and mature into real breast tissue.
The aim is to help women who have undergone mastectomies after breast
cancer. But the method also could be used for cosmetic breast enlargements.

SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK, Ca-
lif. - Unless officials can come up
with at least $30 million in private capi-
tal, the second-oldest national park and
one of the most frequently visited could
be without hotel rooms, restaurants,
shops and othervisitor services by 1998.
Giant Forest Village will be closed
this winter, officials have decided, and
some buildings near leaning trees have
already been vacated. The state, react-
ing to chronic sewage spills, has or-;
dered the Park Service to shut down the
village's ancient sewer system.
Sequoia's plight has become a focal
point of wrangling in Congress over the
Park Service budget and whether the
system of parks, monuments and recre-
ation areas should be shrunk to help
ease the federal deficit.
Facing a $4 billion maintenance back-1
log, and watching many of its prized
historical sites fall into ruin, the Park
Service is pushing for legislation that
give parks a larger share ofthe profits of
concessionaires - the private busi-
nesses that provide most visitor ser-
Less than 3 percent of the $650 mil-
lion in annual concession revenues

some cuts in welfare
WASHINGTON - Colin Powell,
the son of Jamaican immigrants, said
yesterday he supports banning welfare
and othergovernment benefits forthose
who enter the country illegally - ex-
cept when it comes to children.
There, the retired general and poteii-
tial presidential contender tilts to what
he describes as the "sensible center."
"They did not ask to be the children
of illegal immigrants. They just are,"
the retired general said.
Nor should benefits be denied to chil-
dren born to illegal immigrants in the
United States, Powell said. TheyareAmeri-
can citizens by birth and should be treated
as such, as should immigrants who enter
the country by legal methods, he said.

be an expert in some obscure subject like the mating habits of the
Mongolian wild ass. (They won't ask that question again, anyway.) Many
College Bowl questions are about current events and popular culture-stuff
we all see every day.
College Bowl is an academic quiz game, played between two teams of
students. Hundreds of people play College Bowl-teams come from
residence halls, fraternities, and other campus organizations. Some are just
groups of friends. (If you don't have friends, we will provide them for you.)
The first round of the IM Tournament is from September 23rd-26th (pick
one day). To enter, fill out a form at the UAC office-2015 Michigan Union.
