Hai sys
Amertican
removal a
minor step

BRUSSELS, Belgium- Secretary
of State Alexander Haig yesterday
disregarded allied skeptisicm over
U.S. actions against Libya,
declaring that the decision to call
Americans home and ban travel to
Libya were "rhinor steps" designed
to save American lives.
He said Washington has a special'
problem with Libyan leader
Moammar Khadafy because he has
made America "the focal point" of
his terrorist activity. Ijaig also said
the United States has better in-
telligence on what is going on inside
Libya than does its allies.
IN LONDON, Defense Secretary
Caspar Weinberger said the 6th
Fleet stood ready in the
Mediterranean "to assist an
evacuation" of Americans from
Libya, if needed.
Relations between the radical
North-African state and America

have soured for years and took a bit-
ter turn in August after U.S. jets
downed two Libyan MiGs in an act
Khadafy called a provocation.-U.S.
officials said it was Libyan support
of worldwide terrorism rather than
the reports of assassination plots
that prompted Reagan's decision
Thursday to ask Americans to get
out.
The biggest U.S. oil producer in
Libya, Occidental Petroleum, said it
was not encouraging its employees
to leave. Occidental spokesman
Gordon Reese said in Los Angeles
the firm would, however, provide
transportation "for an orderly
departure as soon as possible for
those wishing to leave."
AND ONE executive who met with
State Department officials said no
evidence ,had been offered for the
department's assertion Thursday
that American workers' physical
safety is in "imminent" danger.'

"They have not experienced
anything that could be called a
hostile act," said the executive, who
asked that his name not be used. The
businessmen met with Ernest B.
Johnston, deputy assistant
secretary of state for economic af-
fairs.
The administration said the call on
Americans to leave Libya was
triggered by six months of souring
relations between the two countries,
not the assassination reports.
Haig found no NATO ally willing to
publicly support American actions
against Libya-including the attem-
pt to withdraw 1,500 U.S. citizens
working there.
In Tripoli, the Official Libyan
news agency Jana said Americans
in Libya were not only safe and
welcome to stay, but were enjoying
the "good life" with a better stan-
dard of living than they could have
in the United States.

IOPEC gives W
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - OPEC
delivered a "Christmas gift" to the West yesterday
by reducing the price of some types of oil. But the
Buts amount to less than $1 a barrel, and industry
analysts said they will mean little to U.S. consumers,
Conference sources said the oil ministers of the 13-
nation- Organization of Petroleum Exporting Coun-
tries also rejected a Libyan request to blacklist U.S.
oil companies leaving Libya.
THE PRICE reductions, effective Jan. 1, were an-
pounced at the end of the three-day conference by
OPEC President Mara al-Said Oteiba of the United
Arab Emirates. Industry sources said they were
designed to counter sluggish sales caused by an
estimated oil glut of two million barrels a day.
Oil Minister Sheik Ahmed Zaki Yamani of Saudi
Arabia said the price cuts were OPEC's "Christmas

T

l
est gift'of4$1
gift" to the industrialized world.
He said the reductions in heavy crude prices will
"inevitably" lead to a reduction in the prices of fuel
oil and gasoline and also will cause non-OPEC oil-
producing nations to cut their prices too.
THE REDUCTIONS announced for a 42-gallon
barrel will not change the price of Saudi Arabia's
light oil, known as "marker crude," which costs $34 a
barrel. The United States imports about 900,000
barrels a day of Saudi oil, or roughly one-fifth of U.S.
imports.
Instead they lowered most differentials, or the
amount above and below the $34 benchmark price
that member nations can charge for 'a barrel of
crude. The differential-related prices, which ranged
from $31.50 to $38, are based on the quality of the
crude and its proximity to world markets.

Reagan-Bush committee
mpr'operly retains $1.1 1llion
WASHINGTON - The Federal Election Commission ruled yesterday
that President Reagan's 1980 campaign "improperly retained" $1.1 million
in travel cost reimbursements that should have gone to the Republican
National Committee.
But the commission's audit of the campaign concluded this was only a
bookkeeping error, not an illegal act, and otherwise gave the committee's
handling of $32.5 million in campaign funds a clean bill of health.
The Reagan-Bush committee will have to make a routine repayment to
the government of $251,122 in interest it earned on federal campaign funds.
The election law says a campaign can invest its funds but must pay the
government the interest earned.
The FEC report was released over the objections of the Reagan-Bush
Committee, which lost a court battle to suppress it.
Solidarity radicals call for
ref erendum on govt
WARSAW, Poland - Solidarity radicals called yesterday for a national
referendum on Poland's political system, a move considered certain to in-
furiate communist authorities. Union chief Lech Walesa urged the militants
to avoid a "brawl" with the regime. .
The referendum proposal was made by Bydgoszcz union leader Jan
Rulewski and other radicals at Solidarity's leadership meeting in the Baltic
port of Gdansk, where the measure is to be debated over the next three days.
"The authorities have lost the trust of the public and ceased to be its
representative," Rulewski said. "Power should be in the hands of the
working people."

Al-Oteiba said that the cuts affect medium and
heavy crude, produced by Iran, Kuwait, Qatar, the
United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. He said
Iran and Kuwait dropped their price to $32.30 from
$33, while Qatar and the U.A.E. cut their price to
$32.80 from $33.
SAUDI ARABIA'S heavy crude was reduced from
$31.50 to $31 a barrel, he said.
Conference sources said Algeria and Libya also*
agreed to cut their asking price for top-quality crude
from $38 to $37 a barrel. Nigeria, the sources said,
refused to raise its price above $36.50 for a barrel of
the same type of oil.
Algeria and Libya had complained that Nigeria's
prices were making it difficult for them to compete
on world markets.

regional vice president. "We've had
problems with them (Chase Manhat-
tan) ever since we started working with
them, about a year and a half ago."
NOWAK SAID the University could
have chosen a smaller bank last March,
"but given Chase Manhattan's
reputation, the University chose it over
the others."
Chase officials explained the
processing delay as the result of a 100
percent increase in the volume of loans
they are handling. "Many other banks
pulled out of the student loan programs
(this year)," explained Marion
Bastani, Chase's public relations
manager for consumer . banking.
"We're staying open 12 hours a day,
chugging through. The money will be

forthcoming," she said.
The University and USAF are
working together to get the funds as
quickly as possible, officials from both
organizations said. "We've got a couple
people going to New York next week to
iron out a few Problems' there,"
USAF's Moore said. "We're going to
personally deliver a list of students
(from the University) who still haven't
gotten their loans."
Nowak said she doesn't anticipatea
any similar problems with the Univer-
sity's new GSL lender, First Lincoln
Bank. "We haven't had any problems
with them," she said. "Their
processing time is a little slow, but,
they've been tested, and they come
through.

bill to Reagan
WASHINGTON-{ The -Senate, on a vote of 60-35 yesterday, sent President
Reagan a- catch-all budget bill that hands him $4 billion in new cuts from
domestic programs - the final installment in a tumultuous year of rollbacks
in federal spending and taxes.
The Republican-controlled Senate adopted the same compromise
package approyed by the House 218-197 a day earlier. At the White House,
President Reagan was said to be "pleased" and ready to sign the measure as
soon as it reaches his desk, perhaps on Monday.
The bill was needed to keep the federal government from running out of
money at midnight Tuesday. Reagan's veto of an earlier attempt prompted
a one-day shutdown of many agencies last month.
Sakharov in-law wins right
to emigrate to U.S.
MOSCOW - The daughter-in-law of Andrei Sakharov, the Nobel
Laureate whose hunger strike apparently won her the right to emigrate to
the United States, prepared yesterday for a weekend reunion in Gorky that
would also be a farewell.
"I'm taking them 10 grapefruits," the booty of an afternoon of shopping,
a beaming Liza Alexeyeva told Western reporters as she outlined the day's
developments and her plans to take an early morning train out of Moscow
today.
Sakharov and his wife, Yelena Bonner, were banished to Gorky 23 months
ago because of his activities in behalf of human rights that won him the
Nobel Peace Prize in 1975. The couple launched a hunger strike. Nov. 22 to
press Soviet authorities to allow Miss Alexeyeva to join Mrs. Bonner's son in
the United States.
The hunger strike ended Tuesday and the 60-year-old nuclear physicist
and his 58-year-old wife were in good health, according to two telegrams
Miss Alexeyeva received yesterday.

THE UNIVERSITY currently has 35
faculty members engaged in genetic
engineering in many different depar-
tments, Price said. In spite of being
located in different departments,
researchers here form the largest
group in Michigan and have, production
output levels competitive with other
outstanding schools, he said.
"There is no question that the new
technology will spread all over," Price
said, "the only question is the financial
situation" in the state.
Although not opposed to the actual
technology, Task Force member Susan
Wright of the Residential College, said
"we don't know what the long term im-
plications are."
WRIGHT SAID she was worried
about the health of the laboratory
workers and those involved in the ac-
tual production. "The unexpected hap-
pens fairly regularly," she said. Con-
trols, if adopted, will only apply to the
end product, not the safety of the
manufacturing process.
In a report to the task force, Wright
suggested that the hazards will in-
crease as the commercial potential of
molecular biological research is
realized.
"The University can help diversify
the state's economy because we have
the brains and the ideas to accom-
modate the new technology," Price
said. "We can train students and
business consultants, as well as sponsor
joint programs with industry. The
biggest business draw to Michigan is
the brains of the universities," he said.
The possibilities of the applications of
molecular biology are limitless, Price
said. "All is very encouraging at this
point," he said, adding that molecular
biology will be to the 8s what the
microcomputer was to the 70s.
