'Great progress' made
at summit, Reagan ays

CANCUN, Mexico (AP) - President
Reagan declared yesterday that "great
progress" had been made at the 22-
nation conference of the world's richest
and poorest countries. But he warned
against creating "some gigantic new
international bureaucracy" to alleviate
poverty.
As the North-South summit finished
its work, there wre no signs from the
closed meetings that specific steps
were agreed upon to lessen the pressing
problems in the developing world,
although food and agriculture were
discussed for at least three hours and
other talks focused on economic and
energy issues.
THE QUESTION of a World Bank
energy affiliate to help poor nations
meet increasing energy costs received
widespread support, according to a
British spokesman, who said that no
one spoke against it although Reagan
did not address the subject.
White House spokesman David
Gargen said the proposal, long opposed
by the United States, received "mixed
support" and disagreed when told that

a Mexican official had said there was
general consensus on the issue.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian foreign
minister, Ishaya Audu, was skeptical
about the support Reagan's proposal
for agricultural task forces would
receive from "hard headed" farmers in
the United States. The assisitance of
the farmers would be called for in the
plan.
GERGEN SAID that during a one-
hour discussion about trade there was
"a great consensus in favor of open
trade and open markets" and an ex-
pression of concern about "rising
protectionism."
Reagan, whose emphasis on private
enterprise and reduced foreign aid was
under attack before the conference
began Thursday, said yesterday that
"no one at that table has done more in
the line of foreign aid than has the
United States.
Reagan, initially a reluctant par-
ticipant in the historic meetings,
pleased many of his fellow leaders
Thursday when he outlined conditions
under which the United States would

take part in talks intended to seek ways
to narrow the income gap around the
world.
ASKED yesterday to clarify his
*statement about such "global
negotiations," Reagan said:
"If global negotiations means that we
continue negotiations as to how all of us
can help resolve these problems, we're
perfectly willing to do so.

Weinberger defends

Arbor. "It's a unique town. I'm going to
have to get up here more often," he
said.
Wessells, who graduated in 1968,
played in the Michigan Marching Band
and will perform in the alumni band at
today's Michigan-Northwestern game.
"I'm going to get out my rusty base
drum strap and my worn down drum
beaters, and play. "It's really a trip,"
Wessels said.
Hugh Downer, of the class of '39, now
a resident of Lake Tahoe, Nevada,
spent some time yesterday reminiscing
outside of the West Engineering
Building. Downer explained that he had
just spoken with the engineering
student who operates the naval testing
tank. "That's what I was doing 45 years
ago," Downer said. "But in those days I
had to jack up the tank. with a hand
crank," he said, noting that the tank

was now mechanically adjusted.
Downer then motioned at his fellows
alumns. "Whenever we get together it's
a real bash," he said.
"THEREiS MORE school spirit
being displayed today than when I was
here," noted Maryanne Gieffers, who
graduated in 1972 and now lives in
Chicago. \ Her husband, Don, of the
class of '70, remembers the ham-
burgers he would eat at Crazy Jim's.
"They were the greasiest, sloppiest
things you could imagine...but they
were the best." Watching the snow fall,
Gieffers added. "the October weather
was much better back then, too."
Many alumni. are glad to see that
students have brought back pride in
school identification.
"This is like vintage 50s again," said
Keith Molin. a '56 graduate, as he wat-
ched the parade. "Agroup of students

who would come out on a night like this,
lay to rest the line that there's no such
thing as school identification. Toere
was a decade or so when you didn't
have that...but in the 80s it's back."
ELEVEN FLOATSr traveled in the
parade, all depicting this year's
Homecoming theme, "Michigan, Cen-
ter of th World." Included were globe-
holding football players and a horse
-drawn Michigan version of "As the
World Turns."
The Sigma Nu-Chi Omega float cap-
tured first place in the parade, with
Triangle-Gamma Phi Beta and Bursley
dormitory floats taking second and
third place, respectively.
Earlier in the afternoon, a standing-
room-only crowd packed into the Count
of Antipasto to witness the pizza-eating
contest pitting 16 teams of four persons
each against each other.

U.s. policy
LONDON (AP) - Defense Secretary
Caspar Weinberger came to Europe to
argue for stronger defenses against a
possible Soviet attack. He ended up
spending most of his time defending the
Reagan administration from European
attacks.
In France, Sweden, England and
Scotland, Weinberger was tested on his
ability to'smooth over what he termed
"misconceptions and misinter-
pretations of our policies."
"MY GOOD FRIEND U. S. Secretary
of State Al Haig says that whenever I
speak extemporaneously I 'commit'
foreign policy," Weinberger joked one
night in Stockholm during a relaxed
moment. His trip, ending Sunday, has
given him several chances to do so.

in Europe
In Paris, Weinberger had to assure
the leaders of France's Socialist gover-
nment that the Reagan administration
is serious about arms control talks with
the Soviet Union.
In Stockholm, he was called on to
allay fears that the administration
wanted to compromise the longstan-
ding Swedish tradition of neutrality.
FELLOW DEFENSE ministers of
the North Atlantic Treaty Organization,
meeting at Gleneagles, Scotland, asked
Weinberger to explain just what
President Reagan really meant- in
remarks that appeared to reduce the U.
S. commitment to protect Europe in
time of war.

Faculty questions arise

stake in the outcome of research might
tint a researcher's outlook or method. A
corporation like MRC might guide
research away from the pure pursuit of
linowledge to areas in which more
nonetary benefits would result.
PROF. DONALD Brown added that
some faculty members might be tem-
pted to use the MRC as a base for doing
marketable research that could be sold
to industry without giving the Univer-
sity any resulting profits.
The University would have to make
sure that the profits generated by
research patented by the MRC stayed
*,ithin the University, he added.
BAILEY SAID the University should
also determine what type of social
ramifications such a research center
would have on the state. "It seems to
me that the University ought to take a
broader look at its role in helping
Michigan," Bailey said.
Bailey added that the University
should explore whether advanced
technology might hike the unem-
ployment rate through the loss of jobs
to new machinery.

"Industry is not in the habit of looking-
at the social consequences of
technology," Bailey continued.
HOW THE environment surrounding
Ann Arbor would be effected by the
MRC was also a question addressed by_
faculty members.
"The environment in Ann Arbor will
change . . . we could have another
Silicon Valley if the MRC were

amazingly successful," Dornald Brown
said.
Brown added that Ann Arbor has a
relatively pure environment that its
inhabitants would hate to see altered
drastically. Brown also questioned
whether it is in the University's best in-
terests to encourage a great deal of in-
dustrialization in Ann Arbor.
