*Students reflect
on ' Solidarity'
protest march

By PAM FICKINGER
LSA graduate Judy Levy was surprised by last
Saturday's Solidarity Day march in Washington. But
not because the march was the largest she ever at-
tended, but because of the poor student showing.
"Students don't have a clear understanding of the
labor movement and what it could do for them," she
said. "Like if they (students) were fighting against
tuition hikes, labor could help them make their points
stronger and help them reach the right people. Few
student movements realize this, that's why a lot of
students stayed away."
ABOUT 40 University students attended the
Solidarity Day rally, in which 260,000 people par-
┬▒icipated, said John Bartlett, a PIRGIM official.
"Students have been apathetic for years," said City
Council member Lowell Peterson (D-First Ward),
who joined in the march. "But the numbers of active,
progressive students have multiplied drastically."

Students back from Saturday's demonstration said
they have been re-invigorated for their fight to unseat
Reagan in the 1984 election.
"I WAS IMPRESSED and energized by the size of
the march," said Gary, an LSA senior. He asked that
his last name not be printed because he didn't want
hig parents to know that he was affiliated with a cam-
pus gay activist group. 4
"I was especially impressed by the large number of
people that were dissatisfied enough to involve them-
selves in a protest march against the policies of the
Reagan administration," Gary said.
According to rally goers, the traffic to Washington
was heavy because of the numbers attending the
march.
"THE VANS (from Ann Arbor) stuck together the
whole way," Peterson said. "At our first rest stop
along the Ohio turnpike, there were at least 100 buses
there going to Washington. There was a half hour
wait for the bathroom.

"The march was terribly successful," Peterson
said. "It was great to see all those people gathered,
there with a direct political goal."
According to Bartlett, the Ann Arbor group left at
7:30 p.m. Friday, drove all night and arrived in
Washington early the next morning, before the start
of the rally. At 8 p.m., Levy said, everyone began to
gather at the Washington Monument to march over to
the Capital. But there were so many people, only
about one third of the 260,000 made the march, while
the rest stayed at the Monument, Levy said.
During the rally chants of "Hey, hey, ho, ho,
Ronald Reagan's got to go," echoed throughout
Washington. A number of labor leaders addressed the
crowd, including AFL-CIO President Lane Kirkland
and UAW President Doug Frasier. The rally ended at
6 p.m., and the Ann Arbor group headed back for
their hometown an hour later.
"It was an amazing thing to be at," Levy con-
cluded.

Springboks play despite~ blast

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A pre-dawn bomb blast,
more legal wrangling and a congressional debate
yesterday punctuated efforts to block another rugby
natch between a U.S. team and the touring South
African Springboks.
:The game began 15 minutes ahead of the scheduled
-7 p.m. start, sending the players splashing through a
sea of mud created by a steady downpour.
MORE THAN 2,000 soggy protesters clustered out-
side the double fence separating them from the field,
chanting, "Freedom yes, apartheid no!" to demon-
strate their opposition to South Africa's policies of

racial separation. About 300 fans watched the game
from the stands inside the fence.
At mid-afternoon, a three-judge federal appeals
court in New York City refused to reverse a lower
court and prohibit the game with a team from the
Eastern Rugby Union.'
BUT THE appeals court said the state could cancel
the game at the last minute "to prevent any
dangerous situation from getting out of control."
About 1:17 a.m. in neighboring Schenectady, a
bomb went off in the building housing the Eastern
Rugby Union. The rugby office suffered only about

$50 worth of damage but damage at an adjacent dairy
products company was put at $50,000.
U.S. District Judge Howard Munson had ruled
Monday that Gov. Hugh Carey acted improperly last
week when he ordered Albany officials to cancel the
match, citing the "imminent danger of riot."
The Springboks are opposed by many who view
their tour as propaganda for the South African
government, which enforces racial separatism even
though the team itself is multiracial. The players at-
tracted violent protests in New Zealand recently and
also drew opposition when they played last Saturday
in Racine, Wis.

Whale oil is in demand for everything
from automobile transmissions to air-
plane engines, according to National
Geographic. However, if jojoba were
cultivated again, it might take some of
the pressure off whale oil. Jojoba oil
duplicates the composition of whale oil.
The jojoba plant is among dozens of
former American Indian crops that
today still grow within the United
States.

A disturbed chamelien may change
color and turn dark or show a pattern of
bars on its skin. Changes in light, war-
mth and moisture are the factors which
upset a chameleon.

In letter to Soviets, Reagan
calls for 'respect' in relations

UNITED NATIONS .(AP)-
President Reagan, in a letter to Soviet
President Leonid Brezhnev that was
reported here yesterday, said the
United States is prepared to "establish
a framework of mutual respect" with
the Soviet Union.
Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei
Gromyko, addressing the United
Nations General Assembly, told the
delegates his country desired "normal
businesslike relations with the United
States."
REAGAN STRUCK his conciliatory

tone in the letter to Brezhnev on the eve
of a meeting at the United Nations bet-
ween Secretary of State Alexander
Haig and Gromyko to prepare for for-
mal negotiations to restrain
deployment of missiles in Europe.
The text of the letter was not
released, but State Department
spokesman Dean Fischer provided
reporters with a statement that he said
was based on the letter. He reported
that Reagan said, "To achieve better
U.S.-Soviet relations, the United States
is fully prepared to discuss with the

Soviet Union the entire range of issues
dividing the two countries."
Fischer said the letter was sent Mon-
day and delivered in Moscow yester-
day.
HE REPORTED that Reagan said
Poland should be leftalone to work out
its own problems, and "any other ap-
proach would have serious consequen-
ces for all of us."
Reagan was critical of a Soviet arms
buildup and warned against Soviet in-
tervention in Poland, Fischer said.
However, the letter clearly could set
the stage for improved relations with
the Soviets following nine months of un-
compromising criticism.
Gromyko, in his formal address to the
General Assembly, said "the Soviet
Union has not sought nor is it seeking,
confrontatibn with the United States of
America.
