ifilitary-dominated government
efnerged from presidential elections
,Oith its power intact but may have
railed to gain U.S. backing for its fight
against a growing guerrilla movement.
"Sunday's elections, which gave the
lead for the four-year presidency to the
fdrmer defense minister, Gen. Angel
iibal Guevara, were marred by
harges of fraud, the detention of three
opponents and a tough crackdown on
political protests.
_TEAR GAS and gunfire clouded a
series of small gatherings Tuesday
"night called to protest what losing can-
sddates said was a fraudulent election.
4,7The United States suspended military
urd to Guatemala in 1977 because of
'harges of human rights abuses and
sitade it clear that honest elections and
a' reduction in violence would help end

the suspension.
The U.S. State Department has since
expressed its concern over reports of
rigged voting but has yet to say what ef-
fect the accusations may have on
American policy.
Guevara said Guatemala's relatin-
ship with the United States will depend
on the reaction of the American people to
the elections. Washington likely will
wait and see if the three unsuccessful
candidates have hard evidence of fraud
or if they merely are sore losers, as
Guevara insists.
The government so far has shown no
interest in discussing the election con-
troversy with the United States. "I
think that in this affair we don't have
anything to talk to the United States
about," Defense Minister Gen. Rana
Mendoza told reporters.

Drug overdose killed Belushi
LOS ANGELES- Comedian John Belushi died of an overdose of heroin
and cocaine, County Corner Thomas Noguchi said yesterday.
"The medical investigation into the death of John Belushi has been com-
pleted," Noguchi said in a brief statement. "The deceased died of an over-
dose due to intravenous injections of heroin and cocaine.
"Both cocaine and heroin were found on the premises," Noguchi said.
The announcement came shortly after Police Chief Daryl Gates confirmed
that a white powder believed to be cocaine was found in Belushi's hotel room
and said he thought the comedian had died a "narcotics death."
A doctor, who is a department head at a major Los Angeles hospital, said
Belushi was allergic to novocaine and may have been allergic to all "caine"
drugs, including cocaine.
U.S. bans Libyan oil imports
WASHINGTON- The United States banned all oil imports from Libya
yesterday and accused Col. Moammar Khadafy's militant Arab regime of
an doutrageous plan" to assassinate American officials and their families in
A senior U.S. official said the plot was broken up last November before two
stereo speakers packed with plastic explosives could be flown from an
unidentified neighboring country to Khartoum, Sudan, where they were to be
placed in an American social club.
The official, who spoke on the condition his name not be used, said the
devices were prepared by Libyan intelligence officers and could have killed
or maimed hundreds of U.S. Embassy workers and their families at a
weekend dance.;
The "particularly horrible mission" was cited as one reason for ending oil
*imports from Libya and blocking sale of American oil and gas technology to
that country.
Secrecy order could allow
federal news 'management'
WASHINGTON- Critics of President Reagan's proposal to broaden the
government's power to classify documents as secret charged yesterday the
plan amounts to giving federal officials a "blank check" to hide their
mistakes and manage the news.
Rep. Glenn English (D-Okla.), chairman of a House Government
Operations subcommittee on information, also chastised the Reagan ad-
ministration for refusing to send officials to Congress -to explain the
The draft executive order, which requires only Reagan's signature to take
effect, would allow government officials to invoke national security more
easily and more often in keeping information from the public.
The draft would drop a number of restrictions imposed by President Car-
ter in 1978 on classifying documents, and would reverse a 30-year trend
toward increased government openness.
Mayors blast Reagan program
WASHINGTON- The country's urban leaders told Congress yesterday
that President Reagan's prescription may be worse than the economic ills it
is supposed to cure and some cities may be unable to survive the treatment.
Several city officials testified before the House Budget Committee about
Reagan's proposed 1983 budget and his "new federalism" program to shift
more than 40 federal programs to state and local governments.
"I'm grateful for the efforts being made for the long-term cure of our
economic ills," said Mayor Edward Knox of Charlotte, N.C. "But I really
have to wonder whether we will be able to survive the pain that this effort is:
.cusing now.
:f the president's budget is approved as submitted, federal grants to
states and localities will decline, in just two years, from $106 billion to $65
billion," said Mayor Charles Royer of Seattle. "Clearly, we believe that we
are bearing an unfair share of the burden."

ends revie


a Student Legal Services yesterday
completed a series of closed hearings
discussing possible reorganization of its
operations, but no decisions have been
made, according to officials.
Last night's move to end the hearings
came after several hours of reviewing
nearly five months of staff interviews.
According to Director Jonathan Rose,
the matter is "up to the board (of direc-
tors) now."
SLS PROVIDES free legal counsel to
students in cases ranging from landlord
and tenant disputes to domestic and
criminal cases.
Student volunteers assist the five at-
torneys in the office by answering
telephones, conducting research, and,
in some cases, aiding in the push for
tenants' rights legislation.

The board of directors "will be
meeting consistently" during the next
few weeks to come up with solutions to.
the question of possible reorganization,
using the information it has gathered
through the hearings, according to
chairwoman Amy Hartmann.
In addition to the hearings, the board
is formulating a survey to give to all
SLS clients gauging their satisfaction
with the service.
The tcurrent 'organization of Legal
Services was createdirr 1978.The set-
vice is funded through the University's
student government fee, and receives
$2.60 of the $3.90 assessed to each
SLS attorneys handled more than
1,000 cases last year, many of them
coming to the office through the weekly
walk-in clinic.

"Everything we know suggests that
they intend to repay those fourth-quar-
ter appropriations," said Vice
President for State Relations Richard
Kennedy last night. Kennedy said he
was startled when no specific mention
of the plan to reimburse the Unviersity
was made in Milliken's speech last
"IF THEY DON'T(repay the ap-
propriations)we're out $38 million and,
man, we've got awful trouble," Ken-
nedy said. "Let's just hope it was
nothing more than an oversight."
Last month, the Regents approved a
plan to "essentially borrow the money
internally," said University Vice
President and Chief Financial Officer
James Brinkerhoff, rather than risk the
University's credit rating by borrowing .
from private lending institutions.
A commitment by both the executive
office and the legislature is neded for
the plan to work, he said.
MILLIKEN'S proposed tax hike will
be the first state income tax increase in
Michigan in 11 years.
The increase would raise $210 million
by Sept. 3 and would boost the state in-

come tax rate from 4.6 percent to 5.3
percent, which still represents a
median rate for a Great Lakes region
After Jan. 1, 1983, part of the tax in-
crease - approximately 28 percent -
will be used to increase state funding
for public schools, Milliken said. The
rest of the increase is to be devoted
largely to revitalizing the state's tran-
sportation system, shoring up an
ongoing cash flow problem and'
renewing funds to the general state

executive order budget cut. is $20
million in 1981-82 contract concessions,
which will be sought from state em-
ployees during the next few weeks, $50
million in state agency reductions, an
additional $25 million in social services
program cuts, and $3 million in reduc-
tions of state Medicaid payments to
Milliken conceded that winning ap-
proval from the Legislature during an
election year will be tough.
"I realize that many will believe what
I am proposing tonight is im-
possible," Milliken said. "But it is the
alternatives that truly are impossible.
"And if we are not bold, if we are not
courageous in facing it, the long-term
consequences for Michigan will be
