Regents
debate
University
budgets
By BILL SPINDLE
With all the books examined, audited,
and finalized, administrators told the
itegents yesterday with a sigh of relief
that the University managed to stay
under budget last year despite cuts of
$9.5 million in state support.
The University's top decision-
makers, however, didn't linger on last
year's budget nightmares. - After
speculating about what fiscal terrors
the state may provide the University
with in the future, the Regents agreed
to push back forming this year's budget
another month.
ALSO AT THE meeting Regent Nellie
Varner (D-Detroit), in response to a
recent Daily article about possible
ethical implications of the University
investment decisions, requested that
the Regents be given a report on how
other schools handle the issue.
Addressing the lack of a non-faculty
pay plan, University President Harold
Shapiro said that a higher education aid
proposal, which the legislature is now
considering, would provide enough

Israel smashes

lefi

tist stronghold
west Beirut

From AP and UPI
TEL AVIV, Israel- Israel smashed
the last major leftist militia stronghold
in west Beirut yesterday with tanks and
house-to-house searches.
It tried to ease a confrontation with
Washington by calling for talks with
Lebanon's army on taking over the
Moslem half of the city. But the United
States joined the other 14 U.N. Security
Council members last night in condem-
ning the incursion and demanding an
immediate Israeli pullback.
IT WAS THE first time U.S. vote to
condemn an Israeli action since the
bombing of an Iraqi nuclear action in
June 1981.
In another development, the Reagan
administration filed a vigorous protest
over an Israeli officer firing a shot
Thursday at an unarmed Marine guard
atop the U.S. Embassy in west Beirut.
It said the shot missed the Marine and
Israel apologized, claiming it mistook
the Marine for a leftist militiaman.

Despite U.S. demands for immediate
withdrawal, military leaders said
yesterday that Israeli armed forces will
stay in Beirut until the last terrorists
are eliminated and "what has to be
destroyed"is destroyed.
"THE ISRAELI army will remove its
forces from west Beirut only after all
the terrorists are expelled," Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon said.
"Our troops are holding the key
positions in west Beirut," Sharon said.
"We believe this will bring the
elimination of the remaining terrorists
which are still operating in west
Beirut."
The U.S. government demanded
Thursday that Israel withdraw im-
mediately from west Beirut. It said the
incursion, which followed the
assassination Tuesday of President-
elect Bashir Gemayel, violated Israeli
assurances that they would not enter
the Moslem sector following the depar-

ture of most PLO guerrillas last month
under the protection of U.S., French
and Italian peacekeeping forces.
ISRAEL HAS said it will riot order a
withdrawal of its forces until the
Lebanese army can control the
situation in coordination with the
Israeli army. The Israelis pushed into
west Beirut Wednesday after the
Assassination of Lebanon's President-
elect Beshir Gemayel Tuesday.
The communique said "represen-
tatives of the Israeli army and the
Lebanese army should meet as soon as
possible at which times detailed plans
will be exchanged for the evacuation of
IDF (Israel Defense Forces) positions
when the Lebanese army will be ready
to assume control over there."
A Foreign Ministry statement called
on Lebanon's army officers to meet as
soon as possible with Israeli counter-
parts to work out details for replacing

Blue gridders meet Irish
in first ND night game

By BOB WOJNOWSKI
Special to the Daily
SOUTH BEND- Notre Dame
Stadium will light the night sky tonight
forihe first time in its 52-year history
as Michigan and Notre Dame lock hor-
ns in the football arena before a
national television audience.
For the 20th-ranked Irish, it will be
their season-opener and a chance to
avenge last year's 25-7 loss to the
Wolverines-a defeat that started
Notre Dame on its way to a 5-6 record,
its worst mark since 1963.
FOR THE 10th-ranked Wolverines, it
will be an opportunity to again test their
relatively inexperienced offensive line

while being showcased on prime time
national television (9 p.m. EST on
ABC). Michigan has the advantage of
already having played a game-a 20-9
victory over Wisconsin-but that may
not b6 as big ari edge as one might
think.
"I believe you can improve a lot bet-
ween the first and second games," said
Michigan head coach Bo Schem-
bechler, "but I don't know quite what to
expect (from Notre Dame)-they
haven't played a game yet. You know
there's a wealth of talent down there."
Indeed, the Irish return 19 starters
from last year's disappointing squad
and they are hoping to make their

second year under head coach Gerry
Faust a brighter one than the first.
"THE OFF-SEASON isn't quite so
much fun after you've been 5-6 the year
before," said Faust. "We're all anxious
to make atmends for that and I would
expect the Michigan game to be a key
one emotionally."
The key man for the Irish on offense
is quarterback and punter Blair Kiel.
Kiel split starting time with the
graduated Tim Koegel last season and
completed just 44 percent of his passes
with 10 interceptions.
This year, Faust is looking to his
junior quarterback to take charge of

'U' fined for lab mishap

The Nuclear Regulator Commission
(NRC) has fined the University $1,500
for exceeding radioactive discharge
limits in a University Hospital
laboratory, an NRC official said yester-
day.
Although the release did not pose a
significant health hazard, University
officials failed to follow NRC
procedures, said NRC Public Affairs
Officer Russ Marabito.
THE RELEASE in the medical
school's nuclear medicine department
was discovered in January by the
University's Radiation Control Service,
who promptly notified the federal
agency, said Jim Carey, a nuclear
medical physicist.
The department's laboratory was
cited for violating NRC regulations by
dispensing a drug called NP-59 in a
manner that allowed radioactive Iodine
131 to escape into the atmosphere, said
Marabito.
]ecause of the small amounts of
iodine involved, and its relatively short
half-life (eight days), both the Univer-
sity and the NRC agreed that health
risks involved in the release were

so paranoid after Three Mile Island.'

minimal.
THE NRC, however, is still deman-
ding the University be fined for failure
to evaluate the radioactivity of the
discharge before its discovery in
January.
NRC conducted its first evaluation
immediately after the University
notified the agency, and initially fined
the University $2,000, including $1,500
for failing to evaluate the discharge,
and $500 for exceeding NRC radioactive
limitations. The University then could
either pay or protest the fine.
The University disputed the fine, and
the NRC, after reviewing the protest,
reduced the fine this week to $1,500. If
the University chooses to appeal this
ruling, the NRC will appoint an ad-
ministrative law judge to settle the
dispute, Marabito said.
ALAN PRICE, assistant vice

president of research, said yesterday
that the University had not decided
whether to pursue the matter with the
NRC or pay the fine.
While he lauded the University's
prompt report of the radiation release
to the NRC, Marabito said, "the point is
that . . . they (the University) were in
violation. These regulations are made
for a reason."
Carey said, however, that the NRC is
being oversensitive. "The problem
with the NRC is that they are so
paranoid after Three Mile Island," he
said. "The dilution effect of the en-
vironment is enough to keep the
discharge below permissable levels."
SINCE THE Januar discovery, the
University has developed a system for
dispensing the drug into containers, so
that the iodine is unable to escape into
