Cash register bells are ringing and area merchants are in

The economic downturn earlier in the year has had some ef-

Tom Borders, head of the State Street Merchants Association

"I THINK PEOPLE have pretty much been keeping up with in-

Bill Fehenfeld, a manager at the bookstore, said, "Our
season started earlier this year and it's better than last year."
To the surprise of manager Donna Moran, Goodyear's
department store is attracting at least as many Christmas
shoppers as usual. "We thought we'd be kind of flat," she said.

MOSCOW - The leaders of the Warsaw Pact, sum-
moned to Moscow for a sudden and dramatic summit to
discuss the Polish crisis, ruled out military intervention
yesterday so long as Poland remembers it can never stray
from the socialist path.
A communique by the Soviet Union and its six satellites
also called for improved relations with the United States
provided the incoming Reagan administration "displays
the same constructive approach."
THE COMMUNIQUE also said, however, that "socialist
oland," the Polish Communist Party, and the Polish
people "can firmly count on the fraternal solidarity and
support" of the rest of the Eastern bloc. It did not spell out
what kind of support.
Coming on top of Western reports of a mobilization of
Soviet troops along Poland's borders, the sense of urgency
with which Polish Communist Party leader Stanislaw
Kania and other Warsaw Pact chiefs rushed off to Moscow

Some 500 students were
rather skeptical of the "new,
improved" CRISP yesterday
morning when the class
registration system was shut
down for two hours due to an
But by 3:30 p.m., students
with 3 p.m. appointments
were going through the com-
puterized registration, and
Registrar Tom Karunas said
he did not anticipate any
problems in catching up com-
CRISP workers told studen-
ts who had to leave before the
system was repaired to leave
an envelope with their course
requests or to have their
Student Verification Forms
stamped-allowing them to
register later without having
to reschedule an appointment.
ABOUT 100 students left en-
velopes, Karunas said, and
CRISP workers estimated
about 200 people opted for the
priority stamp on their form
and about 200 decided to wait.
"You'd think nobody ever
gets any sleep here," Karunas
said. "A lot of the people who
stayed fell asleep."
Greg Ippolito, a junior in the
School of Engineering, waited
an hour to register for classes.
"It really went fast (CRISP)
once they opened the system
back up," he said. "They're
catching up really fast.
"THE students who left may
hold us up a little when they
come back to CRISP next
week, but I think we'll be able
to handle it," Karunas said.

minals, wired directly to a

However, the breakdown
had nothing to do with the
terminals, Karunas said,
citing a broken disk drive at
the center as the cause.
"HAD THE old terminals
been here instead, we might
have considered putting the
whole thing off for 24 hours,"
malfunction was similar to the
CRISP shutdown during the
Fall Term 1980 when the
system was closed for 14 hours
during the 12-day registration.
Before that, the system had
only been down for a total of
13-and-a-half hours since it
was first implemented in 1975,
"Of course, it's possible that
the system could shut down
again, but it's not very
probable," he said.

Australia, says he has decided to put the peak up for sale.
