WASHINGTON- Tens of thousands
of demonstrators from across the
nation descended on Washington
yesterday to protest U.S. activities in
El Salvador on the eve of elections in
the war-torn Central American coun-
try.
Marching miles through barricaded
streets in the nation's, capital, the
protesters denounced what they called
K "the U.S. war in El Salvador" and other
manifestations of "American im-
perialism" in Latin America.
AMONG THE thousands were about
200 students from Ann Arbor who had
each paid $50 to ride ten hours on
- crowded .buses to get to the demon-
stration: A number'of other University
students drove to Washington on their
own to join the demonstration.
"I went to Washington to support a
movement I feel strong about myself
cept and which I think the country feels
troy strongly about," said senior Jean Fin-
ea-eery last night, who, drove to
d o- Washington from Ann Arbor. "This is
the only way we can do something,
about the situation... It was worth the
s at time and money even though I'll be
ting dragging my feet all next week."

Students at this University who are fighting the
defense department's influence on colleg campuses
are not alone in their battle, students at two other
universities said yesterday.
Members of the University of Wisconsin, Columbia
University, and Ann Arbor communities are meeting
this weekend at the Guild House to discuss strategies
for resisting military research on campus.
STUDENTS AND others at the University, who
have been researching for six months the activities of
University faculty members working under defense
department contracts "are probably the models for
the country in terms of the sophistication and quality

of work," said Sam Day, a member of the Madison-
based Wisconsin Peace Conversion Project and the
Nukewatch Project, an anti-nuclear weapons and'
nuclear power group.
"The Michigan group has made the University
think about what it's doing. They're starting to have
an impact on the decision-makers here," Day said,
referring to reported discussions on the issue by
University executive officers and the upcoming
faculty Senate Assembly meeting on possible
changes in the University's research guidelines.
- THE SENATE Assembly will discuss at its April 19
meeting a proposal to expand the University's policy
on classified research to include all research. The

policy states that the University will not ac
classified contracts the result of which would des
human life. University administrators and res
chers have said that all research being conducte
campus complies with the guidelines.
Day, who said his organization is helping group
schools across the country get started investiga
the defense research issue, added that he knowso
least 12 campuses with groups looking at
question.
"For the most part, the groups have been sm
almost embryonic, thus far," Day said, but added
movement is growing.

visors from El Salvador and led the
crowd in chanting "U.S. Out of El
Salvador."
"We've come here to Reagan's back
yard, the White House, a symbol of U.S.
arrogance, to stop the U.S. war in El
Salvador," said Suzanne Ross, a mem-
ber of the New York Committee in
Solidarity with the People of El
Salvador.
"No more advisors and training
programs to teach the junta to kill their
own people," she told the crowd.
President Reagan was in the White
House, but a, spokesman said there
would be no comment on the demon-
stration.
ESTIMATES OF the size of the crowd
varied dramatically: Ross said up to
80,000 people gathered in Lafayette
Park, but U.S. Park Police said the
crowd was only 22,000. It took almost
two and a half hours for the demon-
strators to march the 2.9 miles to
Lafayette Park.
Speeches in Malcolm X Park put the
march to the White House almost an
hour behind schedule. The demon
strators carried posters and banners
advocating everything from im-
peaching Reagan to demanding asylum
for all Haitian refugees.
"I didn't find the march very unified
compared to other rallies I've been to,"
said LSA freshwoman Susan Povich. "I
think they drew in too many criticisms
of too many different policies. I thought
it was just going to be an attack on El

The U.S. representative of the
Palestinian Liberation Organization
yesterday urged University students to
take an active role in establishing a
Palestinian homeland in the Middle
East.
Speaking to more than 50 students
and faculty members gathered at the
Undergraduate Library, Hatem
Hussaini argued that the creation of ,a
Palestinian state does not necessarily
mean the destruction of Israel. He told
students they should become involved
in pushing for a return of land from

Israel to the Palestinians displaced
when the Jewish state was formed in-
1949.
HUSSAINI SAID he is not opposed to
an Israeli homeland, but insisted that
"it cannot be located on our land." In-
stead, he suggested, the Israelis
establish their homeland "on some
unoccupied land."
Hussaini, who is the director of the
Palestine Information Office in
Washington and the PLO's former
representative to the United Nations,
was in Ann Arbor yesterday for a sym-
posium on the issue of a Palestinian

homeland.
The all-day symposium, held in the
UGLi's Multipurpose room, was spon-
sored by the General Union of
Palestinian Students of the University
and Eastern Michigan University.
"Zionists have bought only 5 percent
of the land which is Israel," Hussaini
said. "The rest they have taken from
us."
ANOTHER speaker at the sym-
posium, Reggie McGhee, said that U.S.
aid to Israel was only exacerbating the
problem by fueling Israel's rampant in-

Perfect' shuttle mission to end
in on-schedule landing tomorrow

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (UPI)-
The space shuttle astronauts breezed
cheerily along on their "100 percent"
mission yesterday, got the "go" for an
on-schedule landing tomorrow and took
a look at their white desert runway 150
miles below.
The milestone weeklong mission of
astronauts Jack Lousma and Gordon
Fullerton-all 115 orbits and 3.4 million
miles of it-is to end with a touchdown
at 2:27 p.m. EST tomorrow on the dusty

gypsum desert at White Sands, N.M.
THE PILOTS were given a landing
"go" early yesterday afternoon as they
streaked through their 82nd orbit at
174500 miles an hour-after mission of-
ficials had a close look at tomorrow's
weather outlook for White Sands and
found it good.
The officials earlier had weighed the
possibility of bringing the shuttle back
as early as today or as late as Tuesday
if the weather showed signs of not

cooperating tomorrow.
"The mission management team has
concluded a meeting reviewing
weather conditions and has determined
to make a nominal landing at White
Sands on Monday," said mission con-
trol spokesman John Lawrence.
OFFICIALS were particularly in-
terested in wind and visibility, closely
tied together on the desert floor
because the fine, powdery gypsum is
easily stirred up into cust storms.
