Elisberg says draft
certain regardless
of election outcome

BOSTON (AP)-Anti-war activist
Daniel Ellsberg told a group of 1,200
protesters yesterday that the United
States would resume the military draft
soon after the November presidential
election-no matter who is elected.
Ellsberg, the featured speaker at an
anti-draft rally on Boston Common,
said only an immediate outpouring of
popular opposition could stop a resum-
ption of the draft.
"The meaning of this draft
registration is to support the current
administration, through the election, in
the threat to use nuclear arms in the
Persian Gulf," Ellsberg said at an in-
formal news conference. "These people
are being asked to sign up and be
willing to be the nuclear tripwire."
"JIMMY CARTER is currently
saying an arms buildup under Reagan
would be imitated by the Russians and
would be disasterous and would be
wrong. What he didn't say is that he is
promoting the same arms race."
Ellsberg was an analyst for a com-
pany doing work for the Defense Depar-
tment when he was accused of leaking a
government study on the Vietnam war

that came to be known as the Pentagon
Papers.
Organizers of the rally admitted they
were disappointed by the turnout on a
sunny, seasonably warm day.
THE EVENT attracted a largely
student crowd which marched from
Copley Square to the Common, where
participants flashed peace signs, chan-
ted anti-war slogans of the 1960s, and
listened to speakers denounce the draft,
increased military spending, and
nuclear power.
Ellsberg said the draft would be un-
necessary if the United States would
make military salaries comparable to
those in civilian life.
"That's the way it was when the
volunteer army started in 1973, but sin-
ce then Congress has decided to put its
money into new weapon systems in-
stead of paying soldiers," he said.
The rally had a festive air. Rock
groups played, there were anti-war
vignettes by guerilla theatre groups
and one man did a brisk business
selling "Draft Beer, Not Students" T-
shirts.

No nurse contract,
in sight-'U' official

The prospect that more than 1,000
registered nurses at University hospital
will reach agreement next week on a
new contract appears slim, according
to John Forsyth, the University's
assistant personnel director.
"I think they'll be negotiating right
through the week," Forsyth said
yesterday, "I don't expect an
agreement by week's end."
THE NURSES have remained on the
job since their old contract expired
Sept. 30. Represented by the Univer-
sity's Professional Nurse Council, the
nurses are working on a week-to-week
basis as negotiations continue. All-day
bargaining sessions have been held
regularly for the past five weeks.
Forsyth said he couldn't "speculate"
on the probability of a walkout of nur-
ses, but said "there are always con-
tingency plans should one occur."

EARLIER THIS week, the nurses
filed an unfair labor practice charge
against the hospital, charging that their
demands for improved working con-
ditions had not been considered by the
hospital administration.
Forsyth said, however, that the
numerous demands presented by the
nurses have been considered, and that
the negotiating process has brought
them out.
"When you're early on in the
process," he said, "there are a lot of
demands, and you work them through
as best you can, and try to reach an
agreement that is fair to everybody,"
he said.
"I don't expect that all their demands
will be met in the final agreement, if
that's what you mean," he added.
Spokespersons for the Professional
Nurse's Council could not be reached
for comment.

IN BRIEF
Complied from Associated Press and
United Press international reports
Paris police arrest 13 in
synagogue bombing
PARIS-Paris police arrested 13 right-wing extremists yesterday for
questioning about Friday's synagogue bomb blast, while thousands of Fren-
ch Jews and their supporters demonstrated against a wave of anti-Semitic
violence that culminated in the explosion.
Friday's blast, which killed three people and injured 12 others, was the
sixth attack against Jewish sites in Paris in a week. No one was hurt in the
other attacks, in which Jewish institutions or memorials were sprayed with
machine-gun fire.
To gather more clues about the bombing, police questioned witnesses,
including the injured, and fanned out through the city and suburbs to ask
members of neo-Nazi groups to state their whereabouts at the time of
Friday's explosion. Blanket warrants allowed them to search for arms, ex-
plosives, and other evidence in the private homes of all suspects.
Reagan gains votes in South
According to recent polls,. Republican presidential candidate Ronald
Reagan is making substantial political gains in the South, a region that has
typically been difficult for the Republican party to crack.
A spot check of party leaders and recent surveys indicate Reagan as the
favorite in four states-Mississippi, Florida, Louisiana, and Virginia-which
contain 46 electoral votes.
Nationwide, a Newsweek survey released yesterday showed Reagan
leading in 30 states with 321 electoral votes-51 more than he needs to be
elected.
The survey found eight states with 75 electoral votes too close to call, in-
cluding Michigan with 21 votes.
(A story on University professors' election assessment is on Page 3.)
China decries Taiwan pact
PEKING-China's official news agency declared yesterday that the'
United States had violated a U.S.-China agreement by giving diplomatic
privileges to Taiwan's representatives in the United States.
The United States broke diplomatic relations with Taiwan, the seat of
China's rival Nationalist Chinese government, to establish formal ties with
Peking last year.
China news agency Xinhua noted that the U.S.-Peking agreement stated
that the U.S. would maintain only cultural, commercial, and other unofficial
relations with Taiwan.
Under the agreement signed Thursday in Washington, representatives
of the U.S. and Taiwanese private institutes will be entitled.to almost all the
benefits ordinary diplomats receive, even though their mission technically is
unofficial.
Blacks, Klan hold marches
JACKSON, Miss.-Jackson was the scene of two marches yesterday-
one by blacks protesting the shooting of a pregnant woman and one by Ku
Klux Klan members supporting gun sales.
Twenty robed Klansmen marched peacefully in the Klan march, which
was organized as a show of "white solidarity" for the Jackson Police Depar-
tment. Jackson police have drawn heavy criticism from blacks after a white
officer shot to death an armed pregnant black woman on Aug. 29.
The blacks' march, attended by about 150 people, was held to protest the
woman's death, and was the fifth protest over the shooting in the last five
weeks.
Schmidt favored to win in
German parliamentary race
Nearly 40 million West Germans will vote today in parliamentary
elections from which Chancellor Helmut Schmidt is likely to emerge as
Western Europe's strongest national leader.
Surveys predict Schmidt's Social Democratic Party and its coalition
partner Free Democrats will win almost 53 percent of the vote in the election
of the parliament. It is then up to Parliament to select the chancellor.
Schmidt's opponent for chancellor, Bavarian Premier Franz Josef
Strauss, is a controversial conservative known for his opposition to com-
munism and his open support for rightist regimes in Chile, South Africa, and
elsewhere.
Mormon leaders denounce
ERA at church meeting
SALT LAKE CITY-Mormon Church President Spencer Kimball, open-
ing a conference marking the 150th anniversary of the church, warned
yesterday that an erosion of family life will cause society to disintegrate "in-
to nothingness."
He and other church leaders maintain ratification of the Equal Rights

Amendment would erode family unity. Mormon women are barred from the
church's lay priesthood, which is held by all worthy males 12 and over.
ERA supporters, including excommunicated Mormon feminist Sonia
Johnson, plan to picket the conference today to protest the church's op.,
position to the ERA.

Students protest yogurt
switch in dorm cafeterias

(Continued from Page 1)
LAST THURSDAY, eight students
participated in a new taste test of
several brands of yogurt. The results
had not been finalized Friday after-
noon, but based on a preliminry review
Sunstad said there probably would not
be a change back to Dannon.
While Sunstad said yogurt consum-
ption seems to be about the same as last
year, food managers in South Quad,
Alice Lloyd and Couzens reported that
consumption was down.
Couzens Food Manager Sandy Lowry
said 19 dozen cartons of Farm Maid
yogurt were used from Sept. 22-29,
compared to 38 dozen Dannon yogurt
from Sept. 24 to Oct. 1 last year, for a 50
percent decrease in consumption.
Figures were unavailable in South
Quad.

FOOD MANAGERS also said they
have received complaints about the
Farm Maid yogurt from students.
Stockwell's food manager, Mattie
Rievere said, "I've heard comments.
They prefer Dannon."
In Alice Lloyd, a petition protesting
the change in yogurt brands is cir-
culating. Food Manager Matt Niesz
said. And inl the comment box in the
dorm, "75 percent of the comments
have been negative comments concer-
ning yogurt," he said.
An. 8 oz. serving of Dannon yogurt
has 260 calories, 10 grams of protein, 49
grams of carbohydrates, and three
grams of fat. In an eight ounce serving
of Farm Maid yogurt there are 280
calories, 11 grams of protein, 45 grams
of carbohydrates and six grams of fat.
