The film festival "Seeing Red — the Making of an Enemy," sponsored by the Students for Peace and Justice, has been undermined by forged fliers that look virtually the same as the originals — but provide false information, with the times and locations of the films changed. David Wells, the group's president, charged that the sabotage went a step further last Wednesday, when the group submitted a flier for approval to the Campus Life office, which must approve all fliers for campus distribution. The flier was allegedly stolen from the box in Campus Life and was altered and posted around campus with an incorrect time and location for Friday's event, Wells saia. That altered information directed students instead to a speech by March Fong Eu, California's secretary of state. Wells, who is a student senator, said the harassment began a year ago during the "No More Lies" film festival, which the group sponsored. "I think it's funny that someone changed the fliers, but I didn't do it." — Wayne Bowen, Young Americans for Freedom chairman Harassment has intensified since then, Wells said. The recently altered fliers — some with "KGB APPROVED" stamped across them in red — have been continually placed in Wells' mailbox at the Student Union building. A flier that defines Democrats as Communists was also dropped in his box, he said. Wells said the "Seeing Red" festival deals with misconceptions of the Soviet Union and its relationship to the United States. "We're pointing out bad things in U.S. foreign policy — imperialism, deception, racism. Hating the Soviets and perceiving the U.S. as the ambassadors of good will is so ingrained that people rebel against the information," Wells said. A member of Students for Peace and Justice who asked not to be identified said he and other members thought the conser vative student group Young Americans for Freedom may be responsible. Wells said he has twice confronted Wayne Bowen, YAF chairman, but Bowen denied involvement. Wells said Bowen sells the "KGB APPROVED" stamps that mark the altered fliers that Wells received. Bowen said on Monday that he has sold about 10 of the stamps, but indicated that all YAF chapters have them. He denied involvement in the production of the forged fliers.

Today's ceremony, founded by university President James Zumberge in 1981, will honor the outstanding achievements of 29 people from all levels of academia. Fifteen faculty members, including four retired professors, will be awarded a variety of awards for excellence in research, scholarship and teaching. Among them will be 25-year faculty member Irving Reed. Reed, professor of electrical engineering and computer science, will receive the USC Associates Award for creativity in research and scholarship. The prize includes a $5,000 university check. Although Reed has been awarded several national honors for his work, today will mark the professor's first university award. "I guess I've been too quiet," Reed joked. "Engineers and scientists tend not to be as outspoken — more introverted." Acknowledged as a pioneer in the field of computers, the professor helped to develop the Reed-Solomon codes, a system of digital codes that detects and corrects errors in computer signals. The system was developed to transmit accurate pictures of Uranus from Voyager II and currently is used to correct errors in digital sound recordings for compact discs. Although he may not be an expert in error-correcting codes, Stanley Young is considered to be at the head of his field in correcting students' financial problems. As coordinator of student services for the School of Music, Young is responsible for more than 650 undergraduate and graduate music students. He will be awarded the President's Award for Staff Achievement, the only honor given to a staff member at the convocation ceremo- (Continued on page 19)
