Reagan: U.S. to stay in Beirut

U. S. Marines will re-enter Beirut and
remain until the Lebanese government
is "able to preserve order," President
Reagan said in a nationally-televised
news conference last night.
"The Lebanese government will be,
the ones to tell us when they feel that
they're in charge, and we can go
home," Reagan said.
IN OTHER Middle East items,
Reagan disagreed with a comment by
U. N. Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick
that the U.S. must share the blame for
the massacre of Palestinians in Beirut
refugee camps.
"They (the Marines) were sent in
there . . . to make sure the PLO left
Lebanon. Who could have foreseen the
assassination of the president-elect that
led to the other violence;" he said. ,
Reagan defended his economic
program, saying there are signs of
recovery soon. He blamed Democrats

charge, and we can go home.'

benefits.
Responding to criticism of his busing
policies, Reagan insisted that the
Justice Department is going to court to
overturn existing school busing orders
only in instances where the local com-
munities involved are trying to get the
orders changed. In many cases, he
said, it is the black community seeking
the changes.
ASKED WHY his administration is
moving to counter desegregation or-
ders obtained under prior ad-
ministrations, Reagan said, "Well I
suppose it's because there's been so
much court ordering and some of it
seems to be a violation of the rights of
the community, of the school board and
so forth."
"The Soviet Union, which has been
expanding over the years . . . they

for persistent problems of recession
and unemployment. "We still have a
long way to go, but together we pulled
America back from the brink of
disaster," he said.
HE SAID inflation has been cut in
half, interest rates are declining, and
"there are other signs that we're
heading toward a good recovery."
The president disputed contentions

that many of the budget cuts he has
pushed through Congress have been
particularly harmful to poor people
while the middle class got a tax reduc-
tion. "In a number of instances, those
cases have nothing to do with our
budget cuts," he said, citing reports of
people suffering from losing benefits.
Instead, he suggested, bureaucratic
error is often responsible for truly

MSA votes against cutting study lounges

By ROB FRANK
The Michigan Student Assembly last night
criticized a University proposal to close lounges in
the Undergraduate and Graduate libraries and ban
food and drinks from both.
The associate director of University libraries, Jane
Flener, had asked MSA to respond to the plan to con-
vert the lounges to study areas and last night the
assembly backed a motion to oppose the idea.
Flener told MSA President Amy Moore that the
plan was drawn up after some students and faculty
members complained that library books and
facilities were being damaged by food spills.

Library officials announced earlier this month that
they will be getting tougher in enforcing a long-
standing policy against taking food and drinks out of
the lounges and into the study areas. But some of-
ficials felt it might be necessary to ban food from the
library altogether to keep students from eating and
drinking outside the lounges.
BUT MSA members last night voted to recommend
that the University kill the plan. "It's important to
take breaks, and having study lounges is better than
having people roaming around the library," argued
MSA representative Mark Klein.-Ben Davis, another
assembly member, had more personal concerns. "I

don't know
he said.

what I'm going to do without my coffee,"

Also last night, MSA voted to appoint its president,
Amy Moore, to represent students on the University's
Budget Priorities Committee. Moore would serve as
one of three students on the BPC, which plays a
major role in University budget decisions.
Some assembly members had expressed concern
that Moore's frequent contact with the student press
might threaten the confidentiality which is required
of BPC members. -But the assembly ultimately
agreed that Moore would be able to keep the Univer-
sity's budget discussion private.

German scientists create new element in cycletron

apart immediately.
"IT'S JUST like a kiss-very gentle,"
he said. "That is really the trick."
Zu Putlitz said the same techniques
were used to create element 107 at the
GSI laboratory a year ago. Element 108
has not yet been produced, and would
be much harder to synthesize than
Element 109, he said.
There may be more elemen-

ts-"superheavy" ones-beyond No.
109, zu Putlitz added. He said these
superheavies might be stable or long-
lived, but "we really won't know until
we create them." The research could
lead to an understanding of how all
elements were synthesized in the
universe, he said.
MSU'S SCOTT called the discovery
an important step toward making the
superheavy elements. He said the fact
that scientists could identify element
109 with confidence assures them they
will be able to identify other elements if
they are produced.
"It's a remarkable feat that we can
observe one atom of anything," Scott
said.
University of Michigan nuclear

physicist Joachim Janecke, who was
attending the conference, called the
discovery "excellent work. It has ap-
plications everywhere. Who knows
what will come out of it."
The Nucleus-Nucleus Collision con-
ference is being held along with
inaugural ceremonies for the new
National Superconducting Cyclotron
Laboratory at MSU, which is drawing
more than 300 scientists from 20 coun-
tries.
A CYCLOTRON is a circular type of
atom smasher. "This is going to
become a major national facility with a
lot of impact on nuclear science,"
Janecke said of the MSU laboratory. He
added that other countries were nany
years ahead of the United States in this

field. "It was about time they (the
United States) made an effort to build a
facility like this," he said. Other
cyclotrons exist in the country, but the
MSU facility will be one of the best in
the world for heavy ion research, he
said.
Every element is composed of atoms
which, in turn, are composed of still
smaller sub-atomic particles. Models
portray an atom as consisting of a
nucleus containing sub-atomic par-
ticles called protons and neutrons, and
orbited by sub-atomic particles called
electrons. An element is numbered ac-
cording to the number of protons it has
in its nucleus. Thus, the nucleus of
element 109 contains 109 protons-the
largest number known to date.

Wallace leading in primary
MONTGOMERY, Ala.- Former Gov. George Wallace, battling hard for
the black votes he once scorned, edged into a slight early lead last night in
his Democratic primary runoff against Lt. Gov. George McMillan.
McMillan, an urbane, 38-year-old moderate who urged voters to reject
"the politics of the past," had predicted an upset victory over Wallace but
trailed as initial fragmentary boxes reported.
With 453 of 4,144 precincts, or 10.9 percent, reporting, Wallace had 49,757,
or 53.4 percent, and McMillian had 43,384, or 46.6 percent.
Wallace, now 63 and wheelchair-bound for 10 years, already has been
governor a record three times and, during the past two decades, made four
runs for president while dominating the statehouse.
Phone bills to increase 4.4%
LANSING - Michigan Bell Telephone Co. customers will see bill in-
creases averaging 45 cents per month as the result of a $72.2 million in-,
flation-related increase awarded by the Public Service Commission yester-
day.
The 4.4 percent rate hike, which was based on increases in the Consumer
Price Index, will add an average of about 45 cents to a customer's monthly
bill, depending on the phone user's location.
The increases range from 37 cents in such areas as Albion and Cadillac to
51 cents in Detroit. Lansing, Saginaw, Flint and Kalamazoo are in a middle
range, with increases in those areas at 43 cents a month.
A PSC spokesman said the hike was the third and final such order
resulting from the company's last general rate case about three years ago.
He said the increase was lower than the two previous ones because the rate
of inflation has slowed.
Shultz, Gromyko meet at UN
UNITED NATIONS - Secretary of State George Shultz and Soviet:
Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko met yesterday to discuss relations bet
ween their two countries, but U.S. officials predicted little progress toward
easing tensions.
They started their meeting at 3:30 p.m. in the office of the U.S. am-
bassador to the United Nations, Jeane Kirkpatrick. Neither Gromyko nor
Shultz smiled for photographers as they exchanged small talk during a brief
photo session before entering the office.
Meetings between the U.S. secretary of state and Soviet foreign minister,
have become an annual event during the opening session of the U.N. General
Assembly.
Shultz had met earlier with British Foreign Secretary Francis Pym. They,
discussed possible compromises on the divisive U.S.-imposed Soviet pipeline.
sanctions, but they are still far apart on the issue, a U.S. spokesman said.
Before the Shultz-Gromyko talks began, officials said the two men
probably would discuss a U.S.-Soviet summit conference, but make no
decision on holding one.
Schmidt loses old allies
BONN, West Germany - The Free Democrat Party joined the political
opposition yesterday and decided to try to topple Chancellor Helmut Sch-.
midt with a no-confidence vote in Parliament.
The liberal Free Democrats had been coalition partners of Schmidt's
Social Democrats for 13 years until Sept 17, when the four Free Democrat
deputies pulled out of the government over a long-running economic feud.
Free Democrat deputies caucused yesterday and 34 of the 53 voted to turn
their backs on Schidt. The chancellor's long-time conservative foes then
reaffirmed unanimously that they too were ready to try to topple Schmidt.
The Parliament vote is planned for Friday.
By low the Parliament decides in a single vote whether it has confidence in
Schmidt and if not, his replacement is automatically elected.
If the opposition succeeds, Schmidt would be removed from office after
eight years as chancellor - two years before his term is officially up
although polls show he is West Germany's most popular politician.
Prison inmates jump from bus
CASTAIO, Calif. - Eight prisoners, including three convicted murderers,
broke through the back window of a moving prison bus and leaped onto a
rural freeway, authorities said yesterday. One of them was killed when a
car hit him, but his comrades escaped.
Los Angeles County deputies said an intensive search through the rugged
foothills north of Los Angeles had been fruitless. Investigators said t ey
believe most of the men took a car from a woman motorist and headed south
on Interstate 5 after the escape late Monday.
The breakout was not detected until the bus had arrived at Wayside Honor
Rancho around 9 p.m. Monday after a drive from,the county jail in Los
Angeles. The rural prison camp has both maxiumum- and minimum-
security wings. The three murderers, two robbers, a rapist, a kidnapper and
a burglar were destined for Wayside's maximum-security unit, deputies

said. *
One of the eight was injured when he hit the pavement, then was hit by a
car and was killed, deputies said. His body was found on the road by a
second prison bus that had been following the first.
The 48 other inmates on the first bus did not try to escape, officials said.

MICHILLANEOUS is not at all shy
about gruesome stories. Andrew
Kehoe, school board treasurer for the
town of Bath in Clinton County, spent a
month in 1927 painstakingly wiring and
precisely placing hundreds of pounds of
explosives under Bath's newly con-
structed schoolhouse. Kehoe killed his
wife, Nellie, and set a timing device for
the next school day.
On May 17, 1927, Kehoe drove a
dynamite-loaded truck to a street near

the school. As a tremendous blast tore
the school apart Kehoe exploded his
truck. Forty-five people died in
Michigan's worst mass murder.
Author Barfknecht, a free-lance
writer and amateur hockey program-
ming director, explains in his book's in-
troduction: "This book is a rather ex-
tended answer to my wife who offhan-
dedly asked one bitter-cold evening,
'What's the coldest it's ever been in
Michigan?' I said, 'I don't know,' then
wondered out loud what the hottest
temperature was." (As he found out,
the coldest was -51 degrees Feb. 9, 1934
in Vanderbilt. The hottest was 112
degrees July 13, 1936, in Mio.)
BARFKNECHT'S curiosity reaches
everywhere. "Fifty-two patients in the
intensive-care unit of the Ann Arbor
Veterans Administration Hospital
mysteriously quit breathing during the
summer of 1975, and 12 died," he repor-
ts. "Two nurses were accused of injec-
ting Pavulon, a powerful muscle
relaxant, into the patients' intravenous
tubes to induce the breathing failures.'

Don't Let a Bad Break
Disrupt your College Budget
Whether it's an intramural football injury or a surprise attack of appendicitis,
an unanticipated sickness or accident can result in large medical bills.
And if you're like most college students, your budget doesn't allow for any
bad breaks.'
That's why it's a good idea to help protect yourself against the medical
expenses of an unexpected sickness or accident by enrolling now in the
1982-83 Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan, approved by the MSA for
University of Michigan students and their dependents.
