WASHINGTON (AP) - The Reagan
administration denied visas to four top
Cuban officials invited to a trade,
seminar because of Cuba's military in-
volvementin Africa and elsewhere, the
State Department said yesterday.
Coming 24 hours after one of Cuban
President Fidel Castro's most striden-
tly anti-American speeches in years,
the decision dramatizes the ac-
celerating deterioration in relations
between the two countries.
STATE DEPARTMENT spokesman
Dean Fischer said the Immigration andi
Naturalization Act permits the executive
branch to deny visas to aliens on
foreign policy grounds.
He cited U.S. opposition to Cuban in-
tervention and promotion of "armed
violence in Central America, Africa
The Cubans invited to the seminar in-
cluded Ricardo Alarcon, the vice
minister of foreign relations; Marcelo
Fernandez Font, a top adviser to
Cuba's Central Planning Board; and
Alberto Betancout Roa, Man official of
the Ministry of Foreign Trade. A staff
assistant also was to join the group.
Sandra Levinson, an organizer of the
seminar and executive director of the
Center for Cuban Studies, said she was
"very disappointed." Because of
existing tensions, "it's more important
than ever to have a dialogue."

Wayne State can have an increase of 9.1
percent thissyear and an 8.3 percent in-
crease the year after that."
Chairman of the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs Mort
Brown said, "We desire that the ad-
ministration recognize that the brunt of
this shortfall will fall on the faculty."
0 Ronald Teigen, chairman of the
Committee on the Economic Status of
the Faculty said, "This is an
inadequate program in terms of the
faculty having to bear a reduction, year
after year, in real income."
TEIGEN SAID he was especially
disappointed in the way in which the
administration decided on the 5.5 per-
cent figure. Teigen claimed that the
administration allotted money for the
rest of the University and then gave
what was "left over" to faculty salary
"We have no leverage that we can
exercise," Teigen said of faculty input
in the administration's decision-
Fusfeld also said he thought that the
faculty should have some say in general
University pay raises. "At no point did
the faculty have any choice.
"I think this is going to seriously im-
pede the 'smaller but better' strategy of
the University," Fusfeld continued.
"At first there was talk of a 12 per-
cent increase to makeup for the ground
lost in previous years, but now we will
have even more ground to make up
for," Fusfeld added.
