Sakharov in-law
w1s exit visa,

MOSCOW (AP)-The Soviet KGB'
secret police told the daughter-in-law of
Andrei Sakharov yesterday the Nobel
laureate had ended his 17day hunger
strike in exile and that she would be
allowed to go to the United States to join
her husband.
Liza Alexeyeva, 26, said she was
summoned to KBG headquarters
yesterday afternoon and told that
Sakharov and his wife, Yelena Bonner,
halted their hunger strike after being
informed that permission had been
granted for her to emigrate.
THE SAKHAROVS began their
hunger strike Nov. 22 in Gorky to
protest Soviet refusal to allow
Alexeyeva to leave the country. Their
action generated a public outcry in the
West.
The Soviets announced Friday that
the Sakharovs had been hospitalized to
safeguard their health.

Alexeyeva said the KGB warned her
that her departure date could be altered
if she didn't limit her contacts with
foreigners, especially Western
correspondents, whose reports could
"provoke anti-Soviet sentiment."
ALEXEYEVA said that after leaving
the KGB she telephoned OVIR, the
Soviet agency that issues foreign travel
visas, and asked if a visa was ready.
She said officials said they knew
nothing about a visa for her.
Speaking with reporters in
Sakharov's Moscow apartment,
Alexeyeva quoted KGB agent Alexan-
der Barabov as saying, "As a member
of the KGB, j can tell you permission
was granted yesterday (Tuesday) for
you to leave.",
Sakharov, who helped develop the
Soviet hydrogen bomb, was awarded
the Nobel Peace Prize in 1975 for his ef-
forts on behalf of human rights.

Committee suggests
math requirement

IN BRIEF~
-ompled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports
Senate narrowly passes
1982 budget outline
WASHINGTON- The Republican-controlled Senate voted harrowly
yesterday for a 1982 budget outline that deliberately underestimates the size
of federal deficits through 1984 by at least $50 billion a year.
But in a clear signal of impatience with President Reagansenators asked
the administration to submit a revised plan "as soon as possible" to balance
the 1984 budget as well as bring down inflation, interest rates and unem-
ployment.
Wholesale inflation level
shows moderate increase
WASHINGTON- Analysts predicted yesterday that inflation at the
wholesale level would close out the year at around 7 percent, the slowest clip
since 1977, after the government reported November's increase at a
moderate 6.3 percent annual pace.
That marked the eighth consecutive month that inflation at the wholesale
level held beneath double digits. One independent economist called it "very
good news" which signals that "we're on a new plateau."
Walesa and Archbishop
hold emergency meeting
WARSAW, Poland- Union chief Lech Walesa and Poand's Roman
Catholic Archbishop Jozef Glemp held emergency talks yesterday in an at-
tempt to avert a government crackdown against Solidarity and the threat of
a nationwide general strike.
Glemp arranged for separate talks with Gen. Wojiech Jaruzelksi late
yesterday or today in hopes of defusing the confrontation, a participant said.
"We want peace at home," said Henriyk Jankowski, a leading Polish
priest who participated in the three hour Glemp-Walesa meeting.
Porn star booked
in Hollywood murders
LOS ANGELES- Porn star John Holmes was formally charged yesterday
with four counts of first-degree murder in the brutal beating deaths of four
people last summer in a Hollywood Hills home.
Holmes was also charged with attempted murder for the near fatal
beating of a fifth victim who survived the predawn attacks July 1 in the two-
story house in trendy Laurel Canyon.
District attorney's spokesman Al Albergate said prosecutors may seek the
death penalty in the case and two "special circumstances"-required for
capital punishment in California-have been cited: mass murder and mur-
der during a burglary.
Parliamentary obstacle delays
House vote on Alaskan pipeline
WASHINGTON- The House approved legislation yesterday that would
allow industry to bill consumers in advance to help build the $43 billion
Alaska natural gas pipeline. But a parliamentary obstacle forced the House
to repeat its vote, prompting opponents to say the package still might be
defeated.
The House passed the legislation 233-177 to grant pricing concessions to
companies building the pipeline, which would be the largest private con-
struction project in world history.
But the measure, already passed by the Senate, immediately faced 'a
parlianientary' 6bstadle' that stopped the ieasure from going to the White
House.
And in a night session last night, the House Rules Committee said the vote
would have to be repeated before passage became final.

would help students in their future
careers. "Lots of jobs with clout and
rewards require basic math and
statistics. One reason for a
requirement might be to, keep
people's options open."
"If one is going to take seriously the
notion of a liberal education, math
must be a part," Chamberlin added.
COMMITTEE MEMBER and
English Prof. Alan Wald said creating
a math requirement might ignore the
more complex problems involving
students who avoid math.
"Large numbers of women and
minorities are math avoiders," Wald
said. "We are dealing with a societal
problem in that these people have had
inadequate schooling before coming
to the University."
Wald suggested making changes in
the methods of teaching math courses
and providing new support systems,
such as tutoring, to tackle these
issues.

Lisa Odinez, student member of the
subcommittee looking into the math
requirement, said declining math
SAT scores were an important factor
in bringing up the issue.
'.'LSA is trying to provide a well-
rounded curriculum," Odinez said.
"Now you can be let off the hook with
no math."
STUDENT REACTION to the idea.
of a math requirement was mixed.
Several students expressed strong
distaste at the thought of mandatory
math requirement.
"I would be vehemently opposed,"
LSA sophomore Adam Cooper said.
"If I wanted quantitative skills I could
take courses or enroll in a quan-
titative program."
"The curricula of many LSA depar-
tftients has nothing to do with math,"
said Marshall Hull, a computer scien-
ce major. "People should spend as
much time as possible with their main
source of study."
OTHER STUDENTS supported the
requirement because of its practical
considerations.
"In a way, it would be good,
because some people are deficient (in
math) when they comehere.It would
give them the chance to develop skills
so they could take calculus' if they"
wanted," said LSA sophomore Tonyia
Jeanmarie.
Pre-dental student James Spivey
went even further, saying any math
requirement should include calculus.
"The things most people describe
with math are affected by calculus,"
Spivey said. He suggested setting up
special math sections for non-science
majors.
Senior Dana Vikser was non-
committal, on the proposed math
requirement. "It all depends," she
said. "If it's algebra or trig, OK, but if
it involves calculus or computers, I
don't know if I can agree."
English Prof. William Alexander
said a subcommittee he chairs on the
question of general curriculum
requirements will meet with the
mathematics requirement subcom-
,mittee this week to discuss possible
changes.
"We may decide this is not the time
(for a math requirement); it would
involve too much effort, or it just
doesn't fit," Alexander said. "We
have to see if we want to propose
anything. We are not even considering
changes yet."
