'A La Board' gets mixed reviews
By WINSLOW M. MASON Jr.
Collegian Staff Writer
Some students say they are pleased with the
new "A La Board" residence hall meal plan,
while others say they are firustrated, confused
and dissatisfied with the new point-based sys
"They're taking the social atmosphere out,"
said Barbara Moist-(jinior-foreign service), who
stood in the lunch line at Simmons Dining Hall.
Moist said she is no longer able to go into the
dining hall to socialize with her friends like she
used to. She added that she often went in just to
get a drink and be with them.
Now, she said, "You're wasting points if you're
not going to the dining hall to eat."
Under the new dining hall point system, stu
dents can choose from among five meal plans
that vary according to the amount of food stu
dents think they would eat during the week.
Also, under the plan, students can choose to eat
at any of eight dining halls on campus. They can
also choose specific dining hours at the HUB
Eateries and the Kern snack bar.
The system is based on points. Residence hall
students buy a plan for the semester and are
given points to use towards the purchase of their

Each meal has its own point scale. Breakfast is
65 points, lunch is 130 and dinner 190. The
computer, which reads the student's 1.D., keeps
track of how many points the student has left
after each meal.
Other students said that the . new system is
more complicated than the former plan and that
the University administration should have kept
the old system.
"I think when you have a new plan, at the
beginning, there's going to be some confusion,"
said Lanny Dillon, director of the Residence Hall
"If students would take five minutes to review
the brochure, they may be less confused," he
said. "The information is available to them."
Eric Becher (freshman-aerospace) and Dave
Olivo (freshman-architectural engineering) said
the plan offers choices and is quick, simple and
easy to understand.
But Timothy Rogers (junior-liberal arts) said
the new system allows only for the "sprucing up"
of the dining hall.
He said the new system is more complicated
and more expensive than last year, since a
student wanting to eat 21 meals'a week like last
year would have to buy the most expensive plan
under 'the new system, as well as additional
points. Students can buy 1,000 points for $lO.

"We were one of the only universities to get 21
meals per week," Rogers said. "They compli
cated an easy system."
But Dillon said it is obvious that students who
fully used the 21-meal-per-week plan would be at
a disadvantage because under this new system,
they would pay more' than in the former plan for
the same number of meals.
Asked about the number of students who eat 21
meals a week, he said, "I don't think there are
that many people."
Another major complaint many students had
was that although they have the option to eat
anywhere on campus, some are not allowed to
eat in West Halls and Centre Halls dining areas
during the lunch hour.
Dillon said to avoid congestion only students
who are Centre and West Hall residents may eat
lunch in their respective dining halls.
"We're trying to avoid a mad rush because
those dining halls are close to many classes," he
Dillon said that these are the only restrictions
under the new system and that they were nec
essary to benefit the students who live in those

Report says evidence
By ROBERT PARRY
Associated PresS Writer
WASHINGTON, D.C. The Reagan ad
ministration, in a new report, acknowledges
that some Nicaraguan rebels and supporters
have engaged in drug trafficking, but insists
that evidence is lacking against the chief
U.S.-backed Contra group.
"The available evidence points to involve
ment with drug traffickers by a limited
number of persons having various kinds of
affiliations with or political sympathies for
resistance groups," said the report sent to
Congress by the State Department.
Specifically, the report cites U.S. intelli
gence information as saying "a senior mem
ber of Eden Pastora's Sandino Revolutionary
Front" in late 1984 agreed to help a Colombi
an' narcotics trafficker ship drugs to the
United States in exchange for an airplane,
two helicopters and money.
The report also notes other drug trafficking
by people associated with the Contras, - but
found no evidence that those activities were
authorized by rebel leaders or that the main

c:: id says civil war
starts among blacks
By DAVID CRARY
Associated Press Writer
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa —Mango
suthu Buthelezi, the moderate Zulu chief,
said yesterday the brutality of those who
killed a supporter's wife shows that civil war
has begun among South African blacks.
In Cape Town, a regional council voted to
integrate the last whites-only public beaches
on the Cape Peninsula. Council member Neil
Ross said: "God's own beaches should be for
God's own people."
The government said it will end on Wednes
day the special inspections of cargo being
transshipped from Zimbabwe and Zambia,
which have caused long delays. It said the 3-
week-long "statistical survey" had served its .
Buthelezi, chief minister of the KwaZulu
tribal homeland and one of the country's
most powerful black moderates, issued a
statement expressing shock at "the cold
blooded murder" of Evelyn Sabelo, wife of
KwaZulu legislator Winnington Sabelo.
She was killed and her three children were
seriously wounded in an attack on their home
Friday night by assailants using a hand
grenade and automatic rifle.
"This indicates the lengths to which those
who wish to make this country ungovernable
wish to go in brutality and hideousness,"
"It is un-African for women and children to
be targets in a war and I am concerned about
the extent to which this kind of crime will
brutalize those who are at the receiving end.

WEST PITTSTON (AP)
A self-proclaimed demonologist said
yesterday he has arranged for a long
awaited exorcism at a century-old
house reportedly filled with foul
smelling, violent demons.
But an owner of the house said she
knew nothing about the exorcism,
and a spokesman for the Roman
Catholic Diocese of Scranton also
expressed surprise, saying the di
ocese has not even decided if an
exorcism is appropriate.
Edward Warren, director of the
New England Society for Psychic
Research of Monroe, Conn., said two
priests agreed Monday night to help
Janet and Jack Smurl, who say their
house has been infested with demons
for 18 months.
The priests will perform the exor
cism within two weeks, Warren said.
Plea bargain nets info in drug ring case
By DAVE MORRIS
Associated Press Writer
SCRANTON A New York man agreed yester
day to testify against his associates after admit
ting he participated in a drug ring that smuggled
more than 7 tons of cocaine into the United States.
Michael Phillippo pleaded guilty to the charge in
a brief appearance before U.S. District Judge
Richard Conaboy. Phillippo, a former manager of
a county club in Westchester County, N.Y., will be
sentenced Oct. 3, the judge said after the plea

quoting U.S. investigators and American
volunteers who worked with the rebels, re
ported that Nicaraguan rebels operating in
northern Costa Rica engaged in cocaine traf
ficking to help finance their war against
Nicaragua's leftist Sandinista government.
The AP said the smuggling operations
included refueling planes at clandestine rebel
airstrips and helping transport cocaine to
other Costa Rican points for shipment to the
United States. The AP also cited a U.S.
intelligence report that said a Pastora com
mander used cocaine profits to buy military

miles of coastline, mostly in rural areas away
from cities and towns.
The city of Cape Town integrated its
beaches last year. Action by the divisional
council means all public beaches on the

Ross, who represents the opposition Pro
gressive Federal Party, said in debate that
the council risked being viewed as "the last
bastion of apartheid" in the region if it kept
the beaches segregated.
