Panel approves


Foreign Relations Committee yester-
day approved the controversial SALT II
treaty and sent it to the full Senate with
22 technical recommendations, but no
major changes.
The committee voted 9-6 in favor of
the arms treaty between the United
States and the Soviet Union. But SALT
faces a major battle in the Senate,
where conservatives have charged it
tilts power toward the Russians.
THE TREATY would limit the United
States and Soviet Union to 2,250
strategic bombers and missile laun-
chers and impose a number of other

Dozens of students have filed as can-

government (LSA-SG) elections, set-

Forty-one people have filed for 15
positions on the LSA-SG executive
council and two slates have named
candidates for president and vice
president. The application deadline for
the November 19 and 20 election was
last Thursday at 5:00 p.m. Theinumber
of candidates who applied by that time,
according to retiring LSA-SG Vice
President Kathy Friedman, may have
set a record.
"IT'S CERTAINLY the largest num-
ber of candidates to run for LSA-SG

said yesterday, "and that's about four
Two parties, the Student Alliance for
Better Representation (SABRE) and
Studentsw for Academic and In-
stitutional Development (SAID), have
sponsored slates for the presidency.
The presidential candidate from
SABRE is James Adams, a junior
studying political science and current
special projects coordinator for the
Michigan Student Assembly (MSA).
His running mate is another MSA
member, David Trott. Both SABRE
representatives have filed as can-
didates for executive council seats as
well as the presidential and vice-
presidential slots.

is current LSA-SG member Dan

restrictions on nuclear arsenals.
The Senate is expected to take up the
treaty around Thanksgiving, with a
final vote coming in late December or
early January.
Committee Chairman Frank Church
(D-Idaho), voted in favor of the treaty
shortly after warning yesterday that
rejection would only move the United
States "closer to the edge of the abyss."
SEN. JESSE Helms (D-N.C.), voted
against it.
"American public reaction to the
recent events in Iran indicates our
people are tired of being kicked and
being second and third best," Helms

The Soviet Union said earlier it will
not approve major changes in the
treaty. But the committee's 22 recom-
mendations deal mainly with technical
details and are, not expected to cause
the Soviets to object or force a
reopening of negotiations.
VOTING FOR the treaty were Chur-
ch and Sens. Jacob Javits (R-N.Y.);
George McGovern (D-S.D.); Charles
Percy (R-Ill.); Edmund Muskie (D-
Maine); Edward Zorinski (D-Neb.);
Claiborne Pell (D-R.l.); Paul Sarbanes
(D-Md.); and Joseph Biden (D-Del.).
Those voting against were Helms and
Sens. Howard Baker (R-Tenn.); John

Glenn (D-Ohio); Richard Stone (D-'
Fla.); S..I. Hayakawa (R-Calif.); and
Richard Lugar (R-Ind.).
One of the most serious recommen-
dations, which the White House finally
accepted, was a reservation con-
ditioning the treaty on President Car-
ter's assuring the Senate that Soviet
troops in Cuba are not a threat and have
no combat role.
Other recommendations stress the
U.S. right to continue technical
cooperation with NATO countries and
require the administration to report
regularly on Soviet compliance and
other matters.

The six finalists in the two-month search for Ann Arbor's
third city administrator were unveiled last night by the
executive search firm which handled the application process.
Korn-Ferry International, a Los Angeles-based personnel,
firm, selected the finalists, all of whom are managers of
cities smaller than Ann Arbor and live in several regions of
the nation. Four of the six candidates manage cities that, like
Ann Arbor, are college towns.
THE SIX FINALISTS are: Neal Berlin, Iowa City, Iowa;
John Elwell, St. Louis Park, Minnesota; Lawrence Gish,
Stillwater, Oklahoma; Alan Harvey, Vancouver,
Washington; William Kirchhoff, Wheaton, Illinois; and
Terry Sprenkle, Ames, Iowa.
City Council members will interview the candidates in-
dividually in a public session beginning at 8 9.m. today at
Campus Inn. Mayor Louis Belcher said he hoped Council will
reach a decision on a permanent successor to former admin-
strator Sylvester Murray by Wedesday or Thursday. After
six years as adminsitrator, Murray, 38, left Ann Arbor in
September to become city manager of Cincinnati.
At a press conference at Campus Inn, Korn-Ferry
representatie Bob Coop and Belcher said the candidates -

candidates have instituted some form of zero-based

first time in Ann Arbor's Police Department last year. It will
be expanded to include half the city's departments this year.
The states of Iowa and Oklahoma require that cities there
have some form of ZBB.

meeting yesterday with families of
Americans held hostage in Iran, and a
short time later, the State Department
said it had "no new hope" that the cap-

president had offered the families

that the shah be turned over to Iran.
