Transcript blank pages. UH Students Association, at this point, involved itself in the matter. It allocated some $3,000 for publication of an addendum to the yearbook, which contained the rejected nude photos. The addendum, the association decided, would be sold to students at $1.00 each for reimbursement to SA. The problem was thereby resolved. The yearbook was delivered "nude-free" in mid-November with the "nude- full" addendum following about two months later. The "other" student publications entity, The Daily Cougar, became involved in a sticky situation over publication of a photo of a partially nude male. The photo featured a male at the Westheimer Arts Festival in November 1978. The man was displaying a beer can in one hand and his genitalia in the other. After much see-sawing of the blame, Editor Lori Kor- leski rendered herself as the ultimate cause for the photo's publication. In the meantime, however, Student Publications Manager Wayne Scott found himself swamped with letters and phone calls, all terming the photo "disgraceful." Scott, compelled to take action from higher university authorities, slapped Korleski with a list of five charges dealing with her possible irresponsible editorial judgment, the damage the photograph may have caused the university and the injury the photo may cause in continuing the practice of "no prior restraint" with The Daily Cougar. Ultimately, Korleski was asked to appear before the Student Publications Committee and answer the charges as well as show cause why she should not be removed immediately from her position as editor. Korleski appeared before the SPC in late November, approximately three weeks before her term as editor would end. She rebutted each of the charges against her saying only that she was not totally thinking about what may happen as she was studying for a test. Her case ended successfully and she was allowed to return to her post for the remainder of her term. The SPC decided only to reprimand Korleski, asking her to be more careful in her editorial judgement and also suggesting that she work more closely with all members of her staff, to spare the university another such situation. In other nudity on the UH campus, it, Rice and Texas Southern Universities have been hit by a rash of flashers indecently exposing themselves to hapless victims in li braries, near dormitories and other buildings. At UH alone, at least 15 cases were reported during the 1978-79 academic year. Flashers on campus struck the library four times, a favorite site for flashing not only here but at Rice's I ondren Library where a "Weenie Waver" gained fame. Bates ( ol- lege of Law got hit two times and other buildings got exposure once each, including such sites as Melc her (,ym, the HPE poolside, and at the Learning Resources Building. February with six cases, and January, with four exposures, seem most popular with flashers. October and November each had two reported indec ent exposures; December had one. UH Assistant Police Chief Patrick O'Shaughnessy said flashing is a Class C misdeamenor the least of punishable crimes in Texas. One Hasher arrested at the law School was charged with the crime and another case was still under investigation. O'Shaughnessy said I M I of lie ials generally do not punish flashers Dr. Dave Hopkinson, UH Clinical psychologist and associate director of counseling and testing, said the hbraiy is a perfect spot for flashers because oi the coruentra tion of students. Although he had not talked with any flashers personally, he noted that most were male females, he said, need not expose1 themselves !>■ the styles of dress have* become ace eptahle whi< h bare moo of the skin. Males, too, he said, have more diffic ulty asserting themselves with females and some may feel the need for some sort of recognition, hence the flashing. When a male flashes a female and she responds, his need for recognition is satisified. Part of the problem is a feeling of alienation. Hopkinson also said the media may have prompted an increase in the number of incidents through reinforcement, but probably would not have been the cause of exposures. (The Houstonian ran an "Expose Yourself" campaign for student photos and the UC had its "Flash! Expose Yourself!" ads to draw attention to student services.) "Nevertheless, most flashers act on impulse and not as a result of planning," Hopkinson said. — Carlos Cavasos Sheila 5. Lids tone
