face review

'U' of
The University and the Graduate
Employees Union (GEO) have found
nother point of disagreement in their
ears-long labor dispute.
The 'teaching assistants' union has
filed a formal grievance charging that
the University was late in distributing
dues cards to TAs and that it has not
been properly informing TAs that they
are covered by a collective-bargaining
agreement, according to one of its
TIM FEEMAN, a member of the
'unions steering committee, said
yesterday that the University has
violated provisions of its contract in
failing to inform graduate teaching
assistants of their labor rights.
He also said the University .was
required by contract to hand out dues
cards to TAs in early September, but
that it did not do so in some depar-
tments until last week.
-Feeman said the GEO filed an official
grievance with the University last
week, but that the University has not
*yet responded.
COLLEEN Dolan-Green, University
personnel administrator, said that the
University is looking into the complain-
ts. She said the University is
proceeding as if the proposed contract
between the University and GEO,
} which will be voted upon next week by
the membership of GEO, were already
in effect. The proposed contract, like
the existing agreement, requires the
University to distribute the dues cards
land copies of the contract to TAs.

Fifteen LSA departments will be plac-
ed under the review microscope this
term in an effort to find ways to reduce
the college's budget.
'None of the programs are slated for
elimination yet this year, according to
LSA Associate Dean for Long Range
Planning Eric Rabkin, although last
year an LSA review resulted in the
closure of the geography department.
RABKIN wouldn't say how much the
LSA college is trying to save through
the reviews or when he expected them
to be completed.
The reviews fall under two main
categories: lengthy evaluations which
may result in recommendations for
budget increases or cuts and those ex-
pressly set up for budget reductions.
The committees also have the option
of recommending that a program be

reviewed for elimination, Rabkin said.
In that case, the. LSA Executive Com-
mittee could set up a review panel for
that purpose.
ACCORDING to a letter sent out to
LSA faculty members on Oct. 15, cuts
could range from reducing the numbers
of teaching assistants in certain depar-
tments, to limiting the scope and
budget of some off-campus programs,
such as scientific field stations.
The committees will also be looking
for possible reductions in "instructional
support units," such as the Coalition for
the Use of Learning Skills and the Alice
Lloyd Pilot Program, which have no
tenured faculty members.s s
Lacking tenure makes the staff
members of these programs. par-
ticularly vulnerable in times of budget
cutting, Rabkin said.

Reagan may increase forces in Lebanon

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - Lebanese leader Amin
Gemayel asked President Reagan yesterday to
expand the role of the multinational. peace-
keeping forceinhis nation, and U.S. officials said
the idea will be studied seriously.
A senior U.S. official, who briefed reporters in
the two-hour meeting between the two leaders,
said there had not been any discussion of sending
more U.S. Marines. the official indicated,
however, that if Washington volunteered to send
more, Lebanon probably would accept them.
THE FORCE includes about 1,200 U.S.

"What the president of Lebanon talked about
was the desirability of an expanded
multinational force in some form to be used
somewhere, or in some places, to facilitate the
withdrawal process and to be in place until all
foreign forces withdrew ... But we did not talk
about American Marines," the official said.
Israel has made it clear that it does not want
U.S. forces in Israeli-dominated southern
Lebanon. Still, an expanded force could super-
vise the withdrawal of Israeli and Syrian troops
from Lebanon, which Reagan and Gemayel are
said to want by the end of the year. Reagan said,
however, "I can't pick a date."

"PRESIDENT Gemayel can rely on the help of
the United States," Reagan said after a White
House meeting that focused on the withdrawal of
Israeli, Syrian and Palestinian units from
Lebanon, as well as U.S. economic assistance
and aid to bolster the Lebanese armed forces.
A senior State Department official told repor-
ters about Gemayel's proposal that the
American, French and Italian forces expand
their duties from Beirut into the Lebanese coun-
tryside. Gemayel also raised the idea that the
peacekeeping units stay in Lebanon until all
foreign forces are gone.

The official stressed that the proposals, also
broached to Secretary of State George Shultz
during a meeting at Blair House, is still in the
discussion stage.
Concern was expressed when the Marines
were sent into Beirut in late June about the
danger they faced, and U.S. officials said at the
time that could be minimized by confining their
duties to the capital.
Gemayel, whose two-day visit to the United
Nations and Washington was cloaked in intense
security, arranged to leave Washington late
Tuesday night and planned a stopover in Rome
before returning to Beirut.

Pa. college requires
computers for students

While students here go through the
rigors of book rush, students at Pit-
tsburgh's Carnegie-Mellon University
will be coping with computer rush in the
coming years.
Carnegie-Mellon administrators an-
nounced yesterday that starting in
three years, all students there will be
required to buy their own computers,
much as they buy class books today.
THE NEW policy will mean students
Where will have to dish out an extra $750
to $1,000 each year to pay for the ter-
minals. At the end of their studies,
students will have the option of keeping
the terminals or selling them back to
the University, administrators said.
And Carnegie-Mellon officials have
even grander plans. By 1990, the
university hopes to have more than one
computer terminal for every student.
There are currently 5,500 graudate
and undergraduate students at Car-
negie-Mellon. Within eight years, the
school hopes to have about 7,500 com-
puter terminals on campus, according
to CMU Vice Provost for Computing
and Planning, Douglas Van Houweling.
"WE WANT to provide students with
better tools while at the University,"

he said, adding that the computer
training should make students more
employable after graduation.
Van Houweling said that while
students have expressed concern about
the cost of the equipment, they also
"recognize that they will be receiving
something." He said the university will
try to negotiate a discount for students
with a computer manfacturer.
University of Michigan ad-
ministrators said yesterday that while
no plans to enact a similar policy are in
the works here, almost all engineering
students will probably buy them
JAMES Duderstadt, dean of the
University's engineering college, said
most students here are buying them
voluntarily, "I think it's a natural
evolution," he said. "I suspect in the
next. three or four years, all of the
(engineering) students will have
He said that between 10 percent and
20 percent of University engineering
students already own their own com-
puter terminals.
Duderstadt said the University might
require students here to buy their own
computer terminals in 10 years or so.

The Republican and Democratic
rivals for the second U.S. Congressional
District squared off in a debate last
night and, though they disagreed on
economic issues, said they opposed fur-
ther student aid cuts and the draft
Much of the debate between
Republican incumbent Carl Pursell and
Democratic challenger George Sallade,

THE CANDIDATES differed the
most on economic issues, both echoing
their familiar respective party lines.
Sallade lashed out at the Reagan
