Armed robbers

Iraq willabi*de byU.N.

City police are looking for a pair of
armed robbers who stole a few hundred
dollars from the South Quad student
store early Sunday morning.
Police Sgt. Harold Tinsey said the
robbery, which occurred at 2 a.m. Sun-
day, is still under investigation.
Cashier Jim Davidson said a man
made a purchase at the store and left.
Another man entered the basement
store, picked up a bag of Doritos and a
black South Quad T-shirt.
THE FIRST MAN reentered the
store, closing the door behind him.
Davidson said the second man apparen-
tly wrapped a gun in the t-shirt before
walking toward the register.
"He told me to give him the money in
the register," Davidson continued. "At
first I didn't understand him until he
showed me the gun."
The robbers made Davidson lie on the
floor and threatened to kill him. David-
son said they told him things like:
.We're dope addicts, we'll do anything
for a fix."
"I NEVER REALLY thought I was
going to get killed but I was afraid they
would hit me on the head," he ex-

He said the robbery didn't seem
very dangerous, adding "I'm not going
to risk my life for a few hundred

between 20 and 22 years old. He said he

isn't afraidtocontinue working at the
store but he said he is "more wary of
people I don't know coming in." He said
he knows most of the people who come
into the store.
Store manager Steve Gutterman said
he proposed to make the store safer by
cutting back the hours and making it
less profitable for robbers.
He plans to cut back store hours
from 2:00 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and
Saturday. The new hours would be
more consistent with the snack- bar
hours, Gutterman explained.
HE ADDED THAT he would like to
see a "permanent drop safe" installed
in the store. Once the cash register con-
tains a certain amount of money, the
cashier would put the money in a safe.
The cashier would have no key, Gut-
terman said.

"Random patrols by security guards
will be increased also," he added.
South Quad residents surveyed were
either uninformed of the robbery or
seemed unconcerned, although in-
terested in the details.
ONE STORE employee, who wished
to remain unidentified, said students
who have come in and asked questions
about the robbery were more interested
than scared.
Laura Orlando, a West Quad fresh-
woman, confirmed the store em-
ployee's belief. "I can't say it makes
me nervous . . . if it happens a couple
more times I may get nervous," she
Orlando added that she wasn't sur-
prised about the robbery because
"there are all sorts of characters run-
ning around here."
A staff employee said the robbery
surprised her since she hadn't heard'
anything about it. The staff wasn't in-
formed, she explained.
"I live here and I never heard about
it," Maureen Drummond said. "It
makes me nervous."
"So much has happened around here
that you just ignore it and don't take
any foolish risks," Diane Swonk.added.

Defending a nation is virtually impossible in a nuclear age
and striving for military superiority results in a weakening of
security, a Presbyterian minister and social activist told
more than 275 people at Rackham Auditorium last night.
"No longer are our Weapons able to do what they were
presumably intended to do," said William Sloane Coffin. Ar-
ms proliferation has made "the little man walking behind the

Students must increase their awareness and understanding
of the arms race, and then must pass this knowledge on to
others, Coffin said.
The religious community has been active in opposing arms

obligation to educate individuals on the subject, the 56-year-
old minister said.

"THE RESOLUTION got greater publicity

as an internal matter within the party. I did not
view it as a formal move of censure." But she
added that she thinks it is good that an individual
can do something. "The system can be made
responsive," she said.
The issue came up for discussion at last Thur-

Staebler opposed Pooley at the meeting, and
said in an interview last night that "the con-

STAEBLER SAID HE opposes the building of
the Stegeman project, disagreeing with Pooley
only in the method of her attack of the problem.
Democratic Councilman Kenneth Latta (D-

First Ward) said Pooley's grievances stemmed
from a feeling of unhappiness among certain
Democrats with Roach's performance on more
than just the Stegeman deal. The running of a
pro-Graduate Employees Organization student
candidate against Roach in the regent's last
campaign indicated one source of unease, said
Latta. He added there are parts of the platform
which Roach does not follow.

crossed the finish line before his opponents. The candidates
had little to say after the race was over, but Reagan's cam-

dress as a sexual come-on. The survey of 432 young people,
14 to 18 years old, did find some agreement between the
sexes on sexual signals. It was concluded that a girl in a
see-through blouse was probably trying to come-on to her
male counterparts. However, the dress of a male doesn't
give his sexual interests away. According to the teens sur-
