The from associated with winter parking on meets sur· rounding the campus. Strauss sent the followmg letter to area residenu explaining the situation. Dear Neighbor: As you have undoubtedly heard, we have withdrawn, for now, our petition to close the portion of West Street running though our campus. We felt that we should first work with you, our neighbors, to develop ideas and plans which speak LO your concerns for parking and traffic while at the time allowing us to do something which we feel is extremely important to WPI. I would like to share se.,eral thoughts with you towards that end. The most frequently heard comments relative to our proposal have centered around the parking problem in the neighborhood. Certainly the record-setting amount of snow in January has exacerbated the problem and 1 can wei! understand your concerns and fnŁstrattons. In an attempt to solve this pro· blem, "'e are moving quickly to initiate a thorough tudy of parking in the area, both near and long term, and we will be asking many of you to JOin as that plan is being developed. lf you wish to be invotve4i8 this effort, I encourage you to call ŁY olfic. (793-5200) and leave your name with my \CCrCI.Iry. Aho in the area of parking, I mentioned in my letter to you in November
that we would strongly support the concept of resident-only parking on the streelS in our neighborhood and that we would assist in whatever way possible to implement such a restnction. To dAte, no neighbor has come forward on this issue. In the traffic arena, concerns have been expressed regarding possible disruptions in the flow of traffic if West Street is closed but Ł many of those concerns appear to be more conjecture than fact. It is always difficult to project ahead to what will develop when changes are made, but we, in conjunction with the parking study mentioned above, will also be exploring in more depth the traffic in the area with the hope of better prediction the effect that closing of West Street will have on traffic. Again, I invite your participation in this study and aslc that you share your thoughts and concerns wilh us so that we might work together to do whatever is best for all concerned. Obviously, we have not abandoned our desire to unite the academic core of the cam· pus and at the same ume improve the safety for our students. We have, however, deliberately delayed our pursuit of this cept so that we can work with you and all of our neighbors to find the most desirable way to achieve this goal. Once again, I in· \ite your direct input and thoughts in this matter for the betterment of our neighborhood. Sincerely, Jon C.

Twenty-five Unix PC's were quired as well as three B-lS mamframe computers. The proposal was submalled last sprang by Roben Kinicki, Acting Head of CS depan· ment, and was accepted in October by AT&T. The purpose of the proposal was to improve education at WPl by creating an undergraduate computer laboratory, available for student use. The Umx PC's were installed in January and were ready for C-term. The mainframes are sull not com· pletely installed due to electrical difficulties. These computers are presently in Washburn on the third floor in the microcomputer lab which is used for troductory courses in some computer languages such as BASIC and Pascal. There is a possibility of having a course offered in D·term which will use these computers The big difference between our newly ob· Ł tained computers and the others is the1r operating system. While all other run on a MicroSoft operating system DOS) these new Unix PC's run on own operating system which will allow for a multiprocessing feature. This feature enables the user to do two computer related opera· uons at the same time. This should help to broaden student's knowledge of different operating systems. The CS department hopes to be able to connect aiJ of the Umx PC's into a network. Unfortunately, WPI was not given any interfaces with these new puters. Experimentation determines if the CS department will purchase the interfaces to form the network. In a meeting with Robert Kinicki, he men· tioned that there also is a computer laboratory on the ground level floor in At· water Kent. He strongly encourage$ to take advantage of all the computer facilities that the CS department has to offer. Seminar Examines Differences by Scott J. Bury What is it like to be different?

But NC State hasn't .. had any kind of reaction to the law as yet," she .. The only controversy, so far, has been at UNC-G," agrees George Gardner of the American Civil Liberties Union's (ACLU) Rale1gh office "But it's hard to say what other professors aren't doing any longer at other campuses." At UNC-G. hOI.\ ever, the controversy has been continuous since film history Prof. Tony Fragola decided the new law was biguous" enough to drop the works of Federico Feltini and a few other filmmakers from his syllabus. Some films Fragola has shown in class "deal with sexual activity involving minors, and showing them could make me ble to prosecution under the law. (f the students seeing the films are minors, (could also be liable for displaying sexually explicit materials to minors." Communications Prof. Thomas Tedford's lawyer advised him to stop showing a slide show about erotic art and obscenity court cases from his class on First Amendment law, saying he could be arrested for il. In addition, an art class using live nude models for life drawing probably will pear after this semester. School adminbtrators, moreover, told rragola the}"d take no responsibility for "hat professor\ teach 1n th\:lr cla)ses, mg it up to thl! individual to defend if ob'i(.'emty Fragola say'>.

As a result, Carpenter says, professor) may not have much chance to argue the value of their allegedly obscene course content before being hauled off to jail. "There's no fair warning clause," she notes. "Violaters can be arre!ited on the spot. and it's up to a jury to determine if the material under question is legal or not." The well-publiciz.ed course changes and the prospect of professors being carted off to jail "have raised interest in the issue of the part of students," the ACLU's Gardner reports. Although Gardner adds private citizens are at just as much risk of arrest as professors. "there's not that much awareness (of the risk) on the pan of the average person because most feel they aren't inconvenienced by the statute." Several UNC-G students, however, nave started a Citizens Against Censorship (CAC) group to raise money to try to repeal the new law. · Wlule students seem to feel aggrieved by the law, CAC's Phil McCaul adds "this is a conservative environment and the law is vaguely written, so we're holding seminars and writing letters to publicize its potentiaJ danger." "The law," he asserts, "is part of a big movement to return to 'traditional values' and 'anti-secular humanism.' Most people Ł realize the law is a bad thing." (CPS)· Michigan State University lost the latest round in an ongoing effort by schools to ehmtnate pornographic f1lm!> lrom their campu\es. time, the debate over for-profit ings of X-rated filmc; pitied Box Office Spt: Ł a student-run organization, agaimt MSU admmistrators. The r;chool had wanted the right to "previelo\" all movies and caned film., it considered "ob\ccne." A lederaljudge, however, two ago ruled the university could not halt Box Of· £ice Spectacular<, because MSU d1d not have "subject maller jurisdicuon" m the case. The debate over on-campus showings of porn films also has simmered at other puses around the country, including thwestern, Louir;iana State, Marqueue, Ne.,.., Mexico and Nebraska. Earlier this year, BOS and MSU went head-to-head over "Spartan School for Sex," a student-made film which allegedly infring· ed on the school's name and logo. Several court hearings later, the orgamzation's president Bob Murawski agreed to stop showing the film. The recent decision agajost MSU by U.S. Distnct Court Chief Judge Douglas Hillman, however, could very well set precedents for other school embroiled in similar issues. One of the most controversial involves fort) to halt showings of"Hail Mary," a 1985 film by French director Jean-Luc Godard. The film sets the biblical story of the Virgin Mary in modem times and, in the process, mcludes brief nude scenes. A 80S spokesman decried MSU's wish to preview its movies, claiming the attempt smacks of "censorship" and violates the First Amendment. University officials, however, contended the prescreenings would only guarantee that nothing obscene is shown. '"The president said -and I'm using his words here -'These movies are bad for our image,' " Says C. Patrie "Lash" Larrowe, professor emeritus of economics and BOS' faculty advisor. "This whole thing is a Flrst Amendment issue. I don't care one way or the other about porn filins and the right to show them," rowe admits. Not true, counters John Weaver, MSU's general counsel. "This is strictly a straight obscenity case. As long as they are not JOg anything obscene, it's okay (for the organization to continue)," he says. Before last week's ruling, MSU and BOS Campus Porn War Pushes Student Into Court (CPS)-Former Indiana student Dave Henderson lru;t week instructed his lawyer to subrrut a plea of not guilty to showing a porn movie on the lU campus last November. Henderson, who graduated last fall, may be the only student in the country facing charges for showing an "obscene" film, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in Washington, D.C., says. And while "there is a real increase in the level of the war on pornography" on puses nationwide, ACLU legislative analyst Barry Lynn thinks "this is the first case of an arrest of a student in a long lime." If convicted, Henderson could face up to a year in jail, a $5,000 fine, or both. Penn State, Illinois, Texas at Arlington, Michigan State and Baylor all have had troversies concerning X-rated films on pu' during the last year. While the debates generaJiy feature pickets and angry verbal exchanges, Fairfu Coun-ty police a few years ago seized the wide campus hit "Debbie Does Dallas" from George Mason University students. But, unlike the Case at IU, no one was arrested. In November, Henderson organized a showing of the X-rated film "Insatiable" at a residency hall to raise money for a charity. Indiana had wresUed with the issue before. Earlier in 1984, administrators had halted the showing of pornographic ftlms on the pus until students and faculty members fashioned a policy for them. Although the student-faculty committee did not ban the films, it did officially discourage showmg them. But when Henderson scheduled the ing of "Insatiable" in November, "seven or etght" people filed complaints, and Monroe County prosecutor Ron Waicukauski publicly promised that beads would roll if the screening occurred. "It's a pretty short list of heads," Hender· Michigan State Spent $63,428 to Keep Porn Off Campus, and Lost (CPS) -MSU officials said that's how much they paid outside lawyers to try to keep two groups from showing porn films on campus in 1985-86. One of the groups, however, ha won the right to screen such films this year. son says now. To his knowledge, no one else has been arrested for showing "obscene" material. Henderson notes Waicukauski has not gone after stores in Bloomington that sell "dirty" books and rent X-rated movies. Additionally, the prosecutor did not arrest any staggers at the theater in town that shows skin flicks. But in the aftermath of Henderson's rest, the theater has stopped showing porn movies in favor of films such as "Rambo .. and "Commando." "When you tread on the First Amendment rights of a human being, you have a chilling effect," asserts Henderson's auorney, Doug Van Winkle, speculating on why the theater changed its subject matter. "We want to get the case dismissed because of the selective nature of prosecution," Van Winkle maintains. Waicukauski says he is not singling out had agreed to let \1'< admini)ttators and six BOS supporters prescrccn the mti' ic).

"A lot ol peorle are tired of it. Student-; arc tired of 11, the adminiwa· tion i!> tired of 11, and, sure, I've got other things to do, too.'' But MSU not the only campus embrotl· ed in homemade porn-film Police charged Thomas Steinfatt, u 45-year-old director of communication skills at Clarkson University, with allegedly ing aspiring actresses to make pornographll" in a nearby hotel room. And a former Memphis State convicted or sending child pomograph) through the mail, has been sentenced to five years probauon. Lee Johnson, 57, also "ill seek psychiatric care and turn any nographic materiaJs he still has over to federal authorities as a condition of probation. In addition, .. Hail Mary"-which "may be corning to MSU soon," Larrowe says -continues to draw heat. Most recently, University of Oklahoma ficial found themselves staving off criticism after a student group screened the movie. A priest accused the school or being sible" because the film is "widely recognized for its vulgar and distasteful treatment" of Biblical characters. Louisiana State University students in September claimed the school's ban of the movie was an example of the "chilling effect" of censorship. And protesting students and non-students alike paraded up and down the street in front of the University of Kansas Union Building last month as the movie was being shown to sell-out crowds. At MSU, however, Weaver doesn't think students will attend porn-film screenjngs in droves. "1 don't think all the controversy (at MSU) will lure students to see the movie," Weaver says. "I've seen two of them now, and I don't see them as having much vaJue. All it is is
showing how to have sex in a variety of ways." "There's a myth that th1s is the only case. THe reality is we have gone after nography before,'' Waicukauski says, adding he had an outdoor movie theater for showing X-rated movies. Since Henderson's arrest, "I have receiv· ed 200 to 300 calls, letters or signatures on petttions calling for a stop of such films on state property," he says. Adull film distributors, however, say the uproar in Bloomington and on other campuses doesn't seem to discourage many col· lege groups from showing the movies. "We are seeing that many theaters close to campus are showing Łcare Flesh,' "notes Dave Stevens of VCX, which also distribute!> "Debbie Does Dallas." And Terry Wood of VCA -yet another distributor of adult films -says the rental of video skin shows in outlets near college campuses has "gone considerably up" thts year.
