WASHINGTON - Sen. Edward
Kennedy, under growing pressure to
run for the 1980 Democratic presiden-
tial nomination, has indicated he will
decide whether to challenge President
Carter in time to enter the primaries.
Kennedy told two New York
Democrats, Sen. Daniel Patrick
Moynihan and Gov. Hugh Carey, that
"by Thanksgiving I'll have a pretty
good idea" whether or not he will run,
according to sources familiar with the
TOM SOUTHWICK, Kennedy's press
aide, acknowledged that the conver-
sation took place but refused to discuss

number of people in the party have said

The latest flurry of speculation about
a Kennedy presidential candidacy
began late last week when the senator
acknowledged that he had discussed the
possibility with his mother and wife and
that they both had said they would not
object to his running.
The senator had lunch with the
president on Friday. According to one
published report, Kennedy told Carter
the president could not be re-elected
and would hurt other Democratic can-
didates in1980 if he ran.
"THE STORY was inaccurate," said
Carter served notice yesterday that
he will concentrate on his legislative
program, not on campaigning, amid
new warnings that Kennedy could oust
him as the Democratic Party's

can to prevent the premature injection
of presidential politics from detracting
from theserissues," Powell shid.

termed a private meeting, but said he

role in it.
CARTER HAS not formally announ-

little doubt that he would run.

U.S. confrontation last month when she
left her defector husband in New York,
is regretting her decision to come
home, Bolshoi insiders say.
Vlasova is being shunned and
ridiculed by fellow dancers who will not
talk to her because they think she "sold
her soul" to Soviet officials in return for
better roles, Bolshoi sources say.
Ambition is the explanation cir-

IS SHE happy with her choice?
Bolshoi insiders sayno.
The picture that emerges is of a dan-
cer scorned and insulted by past frien-
ds, conmuting to and from ballet
rehearsals from her elderly mother's
Moscow apartment trailed by two
Soviet security men.,
Vlasova has been accessible only to
the Soviet media since her hero's
homecoming almost two weeks ago.
U.S. authorities had grounded for
three days the Aeroflot plane she was
on in New York while they determined
whether she was returning to Russia by
choice. She convinced them she did not
want to stay.
SOURCES SAY Soviet officials wan-
ted the ballerina to- meet 'with the
foreign press soon after her return but
that she refused. She has isolated her-
self from her friends, insiders reveal,
and does not wish to return to the
spacious apartment she shared with the

Students adjust to food service
plan-at least i
By PATRICIA HAGEN
Dorm residents were not enthusiastic, but University
Housing Office officials said the first attempt at con-
solidation of weekend cafeteria service in the residence
halls went more smoothly than they anticipated.
Saturday and Sunday meal service in several University
dormitories was eliminated and residents were assigned to
nearby halls in an effort by the Housing Office to cut board
costs. Hours were extended and staffs increased during
Saturday lunch to accommodate the larger than usual
number of students dining in Markley, Couzens, and South
HOUSING OFFICE officials said they expected some
confusion and longer than usual lines because the new plan
began on the first weekend of the term and on the day of the
first home football game.
In some dorms students reported both short lines and
overcrowded dining rooms at Saturday dinner. While
students said they didn't really mind .walking to another
dorm for weekend meals, they predicted there would be
more complaints during rainy or snowv weather.
"There were no lines at all Saturday in South Quad," ob-
served Housing Food Service coordinator Lyn Tubbs. "It
went very well."
TUBBS SAID he heard no adverse student reaction while
he was in the dorm Saturday.
Hill Area Food Manager Carl Christoph said the "lines
were not out of the ordinary" compared to a typical
weekend in Markley, even with the Mosher Jordan residen-
ts eating there.
Next weekend "may" not go as smoothly because more
students are expected to eat in the dormitories, Christoph

said. But he added that he expects no problems because the
staff has had a weekend to practice.
GEORGE MAJORES, a freshman in Mosher-Jordan,
said he ate his meals at Markley during the weekend, but
said, "I don't want to have to do that in winter."
"I think you will hear a lot of complaints the first time it
rains," Majores added.
Another Mo-Jo resident, sophomore Carol Miller said,
"Most people don't really like it. It's a hassle."
MARKLEY PRODUCTION Supervisor Dave Roos said
there was only a two-minute back-up of students waiting to
get into the cafeteria "at the worst point" on Saturday
When he went to eat lunch at South Quad on Saturday at
about 11:30, West Quad resident J. P. Adams said there was
no line. But Adams was quick to add: "I would rather eat in
Adams noted that there was a short line at Saturday din-
ner, but said the dining room was very crowded.
HEIDI MULSO, a sophomore resident of West Quad, said
a long line at South Quad's Saturday dinner was probably
unavoidable because of the football game.
She said she didn't mind going one block to South Quad,;
but added, "It won't be much fun walking over in the win-
Alice Lloyd residents were assigned to eat weekend
meals at adjacent Couzens Hall. Bill Mitchell, a freshper-
son, didn't have to wait in line very long but said he had a
"hard time finding a seat" in the Couzens dining room after
the football game.
Mitchell said the inconvenience of leaving his own dorm
to eat didn't bother him.

the word's 'great University' fall
too easily from our lips" when
referring to the University of
Speaking to some 300 faculty
members at the first monthly
meeting of the Literary College
(LSA) faculty, Shapiro said,
"you'll hear a lot of talk about the
University of Michigan as a
'great University.' Unfor-
tunately, the term 'great Univer-
sity' is used rather loosely" in
SHAPIRO DECLINED to state
whether he thought the Univer-
sity was "great," but did outline
four criteria which he saidust
be satisfied before the title
"great" can be earned.
"A great University has to be a
stronghold of scholarship in the
pure theoretical sciences upon
which future knowledge expan-
sion depends," he said. It must
also have strong undergraduate
and graduate programs; it must
be selective in those activities in
which it chooses to participate;
and it must maintain a sense of
community, Shapiro said.
The president-designate, who
will assume office on Jan. 1, 1980,
also welcomed new LSA
professors and lecturers to the
University's "community of
scholars," which he said included
most, faculty members and
several students. "A scholarly
community gives the University
its distinction," he said.
THE UNUSUALLY large tur-
nout for the LSA meeting was
chiefly attributable to the
