The status of eight Iranian University
students found to be in violation of visa
requirements and eighteen others with
incomplete records are still under
review by the Immigration and
Naturalization Service (INS) in
Early in December, INS agents in-
terviewed Iranian students at the
ederal Building in Ann Arbor

President Carter in response to the U.S.
Embassy takeover in Tehran. They
found eight students subject to depor-
tation rules. In eighteen other cases,
more information was required. '
ROBERT WAGUS, coordinator of
Michigan's INS project, said the case-

UNITED NATIONS (AP) - The,
Security Council has called for an
emergency special session of the
General Assembly to deal with the
Soviet military intervention in
The council approved a Philippine
and Mexican request totake the issue to
the 152-nation assembly following a
Soviet veto in the council Monday of a
resolution calling for withdrawal of
foreign troops from the Central Asian
nation. The vote yesterday evening was
12 to 2 with Zambia abstaining.
The Soviet Union and East Germany
voted against the measure, as they had
against the council resolution on Mon-
day, claiming it was an interference in
the internal affairs of Afghanistan. The
question was a procedural matter;
however, and the negative Soviet vote
did not constitute a veto.
IMMEDIATELY AFTER the vote,
notified all representitives accredited
to the United Nations that the emergen-
cy session would convene today at 3
The Soviet Union sent troops into
Afghanistan in late December, at the
time of a coup that deposed President
Hafizullah Amin and put Babrak Kar-
mal in his place. The Philippines was
one of six non-aligned sponsors of the
Security Council resolution the Soviet
Union vetoed on Monday.
While it lacks authority to enforce its
decisions, a debate in the assembly and
a heavily supported resolution would
put some moral pressure on the Soviet
In the past the Soviet Union has
ignored assembly measures adopted in
response to its veto of a similar
measure in the council.
IN OTHER developments yesterday:
From Kabul, Afghanistan the AP
reported that Soviet transports are
airlifting Red Army reinforcements to
the southern Afghan province of Kan-
dahar, hopping over rebel threatened
highway passes of the 'Hindu Kush
mountains, sources reported from
Kandahar city Wednesday.
In a separate report, Afghan rebel in-
formants quoted by a Pakistani
newspaper said the newly arrived
Soviet forces were moving southward
from Kandahar, an ancient walled
capital of Afghanistan, to take control
of strategic positions between the city
and the Pakistani border, 80 miles
THE ANTI=COMMUNIST rebels
claimed the Soviets were pouring fresh
troops intoeKandahar, 300 miles south-
west of here, because most Afghan
government soldiers in the souther
province had defected to the insurgen-
But this could not be verified, and
U.S. government analysts say the rebel
reports of Afghan army defections ap-
pear to be exaggerated.
In New York, in a new American
economic blow at the Soviet Union, the
Association announced it had ordered
its members to stop handling Soviet
ships and Soviet cargoes in ports fromii
Maine to Texas.
In Washington, a senior White House
official said Soviet President Leonid
Brezhnev told President Carter that
Russian troops . would stay in
Afghanistan until they "have com-
pleted their work." The official, who

before the battle starts again Monday
But weekend is also the first word of a

ts living in residence halls: weekend
food service consolidation.
"IT'S A PAIN in the ass," claimed
Tom Nowack, an LSA sophomore from
"I hate it," said Gina Moorman, a
junior living in Mosher-Jordan.
"I think it's pretty shitty," said Joel
Groner, a resident of Markley.
THESE STUDENTS appear to reflect
the opinions of many students who live
in the six residence halls affected by the
consolidation program -- the mere
mention of which is enough to generate
grief, anger, and often profanity.
The program was started last fall in
an effort to cut room and board costs of
the students residing in dormitories.
Under the consolidation program,
cafeteria operations of three residence
halls are shut down on the weekends,
and the residents of the affected dor-
mitories are shuffled off to nearby
residence halls to eat their meals.
Residents from Couzens eat at Alice

South Quad, and Markley plays host to

The savings amount to $6 per student
per semester. Yet, if given a choice,
many students would have it differen-
"I'D GLADLY pay more money than
be inconvenienced," said Alice Lloyd
resident Ralph Smith. "It's an incon-
venience to have to leave the dorm,
especially in cold weather."
"For all the trouble and cold, all we
save is $12 (a year)," complained Janet
Webley, a sophomore at Couzens.
Webley added she "feels sorry" for the
Alice Lloyd residents who must walk to
Couzens to eat their meals.
To say the program is unpopular is to
understate the sentiment of the residen-
ts. Making the outdoor jaunt is one of
the many complaints heard from the
discontented students. Other complain-
ts include bad food, long lines, and no
place to sit.
"YOU GOTTA PUT on your coat and
stand in line and then you're sweating
and looking at all this disgusting food,"
said Darcy Gingerich, a freshwoman
from Alice Lloyd.

Though financial doldrums lie ahead,
University President Harold Shapiro
says he has just taken command of a
ship which is in "exceptional shape."
There is nothing he could do as an in-
dividual to sink the ship, Shapiro says,
since the University is able to meet
problems and renew itself continually.
HE CITES a more distinguished
faculty than ever and a particularly
qualified student body as the Univer-
sity's primary strengths.
"Everyone has high aspirations and
that always makes the task ahead more
difficult," says the economics professor
who became president Jan. 1. The more
people expect, as he explains it, the
harder it is to attain the definitions of
success set by a number of people.
The transition to Shapiro's presiden-
cy will not be felt immediately. Shapiro
himself says there is no real way to
assess his ability to steer the University
until his tenure as president is over.
SHAPIRO'S desk in his second floor
Administration Building office is
cleared of much of the paper which had
accumulated on the desk of Allan
Smith, who served as interim Univer-
sity president during 1979. The
bookshelves have been cleared of
numerous books which traditionally
find a home in that office.
Shapiro took his first official action as
president yesterday in appointing
Virginia Nordby, currently a Univer-
sity policy coordinator, to a post as his
executive assistant. Nordby is a law
professor who specializes in affir-
mative action policies.
Shapiro says he is not worried about
the challenges ahead, but enthusiastic.
He says he expects his energy to be a
big plus on the job.
HE DOES NOT expect a sometimes
strained relationship with the faculty
and administration to change much
because of his background on the
faculty. It is hard to change the
faculty's traditionally negative feelings
about administrators, he says. Shapiro
says, however, he hopes faculty mem-
bers would have more confidence in
him than they might another, more
He says he will exert his leadership in
such a way to persuade, rather than
