CARTER CALLS EVALUATIONS 'NECESSARY':
President's staff gets pep talk
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter told some 300 members of the
White House staff yesterday they have
nothing to fear from controversial
evaluation forms if they are competent,
work hard, and are loyal.
Carter associates, who asked not to
be named, said this was one message
the president relayed to subordinates at
a pep talk in the East Room that was
beamed by closed circuit television to
the few who remained at work in their
Last week, all senior executives in
government and at the White House
were asked by new Carter staff chief
Hamilton Jordan to rate their un-
derlings on evalustion forms that have
been parodied and often ridiculed since
they came to light last week.
CARTER WAS quoted as telling his
staff at yesterday's meeting that the
evaluation process is "necessary and
important" to his goal of reasserting
presidential leadership and running a
Carter, according to sources, said
nothing specific about impending per-
sonnel changes or a planned restruc-
turing of some White House operations.

Brown: Changes would imperil SALT

Secretary Harold Brown said yesterday
that important concessions made by the
Soviet Union during SALT II
negotiations would be imperiled if the
Senate insists on changing the treaty.
Brown said Russia had conceded to
the United States on issues such as
missile launchers and warhead
ceilings, exclusion of French and
British nuclear forces from the pact,
and the range of airborne cruise

said. "Taken together, they are far
more important than the Backfire issue
or the heavy missile issue."
THE SECRETARY testified at the
opening round of hearings on the treaty
by the Senate Armed Services Commit-
tee, whose members include some of
the treaty's staunchest foes. The Senate
Foreign Relations Committee already
has held two weeks of hearings on the
Several senators objected that the
treaty permits the Soviet Union to
retain 308 giant SS-18 missiles with far
greater explosive power than U.S.
rockets. They also argued that the
Soviet Backfire bomber should be in-
cluded in the actual treaty instead of
being covered by a separate under-

as it debated the first U.S.-Soviet arms
"I would not trade our current force
for theirs," Brown said.
Jackson said, "this treaty is unequal
in a number of respects," such as by
allowing the Soviets to have missiles
far bigger than those of the United
States. The treaty does place an equal
ceiling on the number of weapons.
"IT IS meaningless to speak in terms
of numbers alone,' Jackson said. "A
team of giants and a team of dwarfs
might have equal numbers of
players . .. but they are hardly equal."
Brown replied that, "If the dwarfs
are just as strong and able and agile as
the giants, the teams are not unequal.
Jackson challenged Brown's asser-
tion that without SALT, the Soviets
would expand their nuclear arsenal to
about 3,000 weapons. The treaty sets a
cap of 2,250 strategic missiles and bom-
bers through 1985.
struck and killed by van

A University student, considered a
"brilliant" archeologist by her
colleagues, was killed Friday when she
was struck by a van on the east side of
Central Campus, according to Ann Ar-
Jane Sallade, 30, was crossing the
median on N. University Ave. at Chur-
ch St. on her way to the anthropology
museum, when a 1976 Ford van, driven
by 25-year-old Mark McCleary of Yp-
silanti, swerved off the road, struck
Sallade, and threw her 80 feet, police
said. She was pronounced dead on
arrival at University Hospital, police
MCCLEARY WAS arraigned in
Washtenaw County 15th District Court
Saturday on charges of manslaughter
and released on $5,000 bond.
According to police, the van bounced
between the sidewalk and the street for
nearly 60 feet before striking Sallade.
Police said results of a Breathalizer
test were incomplete, but McCleary
appeared intoxicated at the time.
Sallade, a native of Carbondale, Ill.,
had just returned from a year-long trig

Cyprus and was compiling her notes t
