Protest,

Israel rejects
Beirut pullout

Staff rallies
against possible
salary freeze
By BILL SPINDLE
Some professors joined with clerks and secretaries outside
the Administration Building yesterday to lash out at what
they called the University's "discriminatory" plan to give
faculty members pay hikes while freezing the salaries of non-
teaching University staff members.
About 90 University employees gathered at the Regents
Plaza rally yesterday shortly before the Regents were
scheduled to meet, and listened to their fellow workers urge
themtounionize to fight the administration.
THE FOCUS of the demonstration was a University
decision last July to hold the salaries of non-unionized staff
members-mainly secretaries and lower-level ad-
ministrators-at last year's rate, while giving some
professors pay raises."
Administrators had defended the pay policy on the grounds

JERUSALEM - The Israeli gov-
ernment said yesterday it would
pull back its troops from west
Beirut when the Lebanese army
was ready to take control.
But the Cabinet communique set
no timetable for the troops' depar-
ture from the Lebanese capital,
and the unanimous decision ap-
peared to reject U.S. demands for
an immediate Israeli withdrawal.
THE STATEMENT said the
Israelis went into west Beirut after
Lebanese President-elect Bashir
Gemayel was assassinated
because of the danger of "violence,
bloodshed and chaos."
It said "the government will in-
struct the Israel Defense Forces to
evacuate these positions" in west
Beirut "when the Lebanese army
is ready to take control of them, in
coordination with the Israel Defen-
se Forces, in order to ensure public
order and security."
In Rome, PLO Chairman Yassar
Arafat called for the return of the
three nation peacekeeping force to
Lebanon because of Israeli moves
6 ii shc

into west Beirut (see story, Page
5).
THE ISRAELI military com-
mand announced earlier that
Israeli forces were 'in control of all
key points in Beirut" yesterday af-
ter a two-day operation.
Gemayel was a Christian militia
leader whose election by the
Lebanese Parliament last month
was boycotted by most Moslem
deputies. Gemayel's militia had
received aid from Israel and the
Begin government had hoped his
election would lead to a peace
treaty between Lebanon and
Israel.
The Israeli surge, into west
Beirut sparked criticism that some
Israeli Cabinet members were not
consulted, according to Israeli
press reports. The opposition
Labor Party urged the Cabinet di-
ssenters to speak out in the special
meeting called to consider the
Lebanese situation.
MEANWHILE, Lebanese Prime
Minister Chefik Wazzan appealed
to President Reagan to help save
his capital, and President Elias

Nat. Res. students fight to save school)

By JIM SPARKS
After attending a rally that just
barely got off the ground, about
40 supporters of the School of
Natural Resources marched into
yesterday's Regents' meeting
and defended their school with
speeches and loud applause.
The school currently is facing a
budget review that could result in
massive money cutbacks, or, in
the most drastic scenario, the
school's wholesale elimination.
"WHEN OUR budget is cut, in
a way, so is yours," said Karen
Herr, a junior in the school. She
explained that a cut in the study
of natural resources will also hurt
everyone's chance to appreciate
those resources.
The students, who looked
somewhat aimless when the rally
began at 3:30 p.m. in front of the
cube, grew enthusiastic when
they spoke to the Regents.
"A great School of Natural
Resources is as vital to the
University as any other school or
program," said Dominick Dell
Sala, a graduate student in the
school.
SALA, A new student at the
University, said "I am forced to
acclimate to new surroundings,
and it appears that at the same
time those surroundings may be
pulled from under my feet."

The sparse attendance at the
rally outside was in sharp con-
trast to last April's Regents'
meeting, when the Michigan
Union's Anderson Room was
packed with people protesting the
administration's now famous
"Five-year plan."
By the time Jonathon Weiland,
a SNR graduate, jumped on a
bench to speak to "the multitude
out there," the number had
swelled from 25 to 40, but he had
to smile at phrases like "presen-
ce equals power," in his prepared
speech.
WEILAND said that last April
"the Regents were surprised,
baffled and confused ... they had
nothing to do but listen.
"So get involved, because if
you're not involved, you might as
well transfer to LSA now,"
Weiland said.
Nancy Yakes, who just
received her master's degree
from the school, explained that
the rally, with no protest signs or
public address system, "was
pretty much put together over the
last couple days."
Most people in the school don't,
think it will be closed now, Yakes
said, adding that "they feel it will
be treated well by the Univer-
sity."

alcohol restrictions

By ROB FRANK
Students should think twice before trying to
smuggle liquor into Michigan Stadium for the
Wolverines next home game. Stadium officials
have proclaimed a new crack down on fans who
prefer to watch the Wolverines with a six-pack or a
flask.
Guards watching the entrance, gates will make
life tougher for spectators to get alcohol into the
Stadium.
FOR ONE THING, fans will no longer be allowed
to bring coolers or large parcels into the Stadium,
said Will Perry, the assistant director of University
athletics.
Perry said the new policy will solve a long-
standing problem of coolers blocking the aisles,
requiring other fans to climb over the parcels when
walking to their seats.
"One of the biggest problems we have is people
not being able to get to their seats because the aisles
are blocked," said Perry yesterday. "One han-
dicapped woman counted 21 people in the aisle last
week and we just can't have that."
There are more complaints about coolers and
blocked aisles in the alumni and local spectator sec-

tions than in the student seats, said Perry. "I think
the students do a hell of a job," he added.
THE RESTRICTIONS on coolers will make it
much easier for guards to spot alcohol before it gets
into the stadium, Perry said. Before the new rules
went into effect, it was virtually impossible to catch
liquor coming into the grounds because there were
far too many coolers and parcels to search, he poin-
ted out.
"Though we don't want alcohol in (the stadium),
we can't search everyone who comes ineither," he
said. "But we are trying to crack down on (alcohol)
being brought in."
Fans who become too zealous in their drinking
have been a perennial problem at football games,
according to stadium officials.
"PEOPLE GO to kickoff parties the night before
the game, tailgate parties before the game, and
bring drinks into the game," said one Red Cross
volunteer who works at the stadium. "By halftime,
they're blitzed and pose potential problems."
Though at last week's home game against
Wisconsin only one fan required medical attention
after drinking too much, several others were
referred to police to sleep off their merry-making.

Dominick Dell Sala, a graduate student in the School of
Natural Resources, urges the Regents at their meeting
yesterday to avoid budget cuts in the school, one of the three
presently under review.

Scramble on for math classes

Army to strengthen
role of Green Berets

By JERRY ALIOTTA
The mathematics department is having a little
trouble with its figures these days.
An increase in the number of students wanting to
take math courses coupled with a shortage of faculty
members has caused chaos in the department recen-
tly. The waitlist for math classes swelled to about 300
last week, as students hoping to get overrides formed
90-foot lines outside the department's office doors.
Little relief for students is in sight. "I really feel
sympathy for students who want math classes, but
our hands are tied and there's not much we can do,"
said Leon Zukowski, an administrative associate in
the math department.
THE SCRAMBLE for math classes has been
caused in part by the rapid growth in the number of
students majoring in engineering and computer
sciences, according to Prof. Frederick Gehring,
chairman of the math department.
But along with more students wanting to take
math, fewer professors and teaching assistants are
available to teach it. "We just don't have enough

people to teach the classes," Gehring admitted.
The department's faculty has been reduced in
recent years due to cutbacks and retirement,
Gehring said, adding that this year, the department
is asking the University for permission to hire "six or
seven" more professors.
Teaching assistants are also in short supply,
largely because the University's new English
proficiency test for TAs has discouraged many

foreign graduate students from applying for the job,
Gehring said.
"THEY WERE worried about the test and most
were scared off," Gehring said.
The department cannot admit as many students as
it wants into sections taught by TAs because an.
agreement with the Graduate Employees
Organization-the TAs bargaining agent-limits such
classes to 30 students each, Gehring added.
Although the department has rarely turned away
students in the past, it may have to this year, some
professors predicted.
"We have never closed courses in the past years,
but for the first time it looks as though we might have
to," said Prof. James Wendel, an associate depar-
tment chairman.
LINES OF students waiting for overrides are
creating confusion at the math department's Angell
Hall offices. The department's office, already under-
staffed because of the University's recently-declared
hiring freeze, was forced to shut down briefly last

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) -- The
Army has decided to establish a
"major command" for military
special operations,da move aimed at
improving the Green Berets'
capability to wage counter-insurg-
cy, guerrillas, sabotage, and other
kinds of unconventional warfare,
sources say.
Theedecision follows a quiet but in-
tensive lobbying drive by conser-
vative military strategists inside
and outside the administration for
improved U.S. forces to respond to
so-called "low intensity" conflicts,
like the current fighting in Central
America.
MILITARY sources, who asked
not to be identified, said the anoun-

cement of the command and details
about exactly which units will be in-
volved is expected soon.
Sources also say an active debate
is continuing inside the Pentagon
about placing special operation for-
ces from the Air Force and possibly
other branches of the armed ser-
vices into a joint command.
The Pentagon refused comment
on the report.
Advocates of unconventional war-
fare say the creation of a central
headquarters for special operations
with a tighter chain of command and
control would be the most important
step yet toward revitalizing those
forces, which have been declined
since the Vietnam War.
