Engineering college officials have in-
sisted that the proposed reorganization
of the college's humanities
program-which would involve the
closure of one unit, the transfer of
another to LSA, and the retention of a
third-does not reflect any change in
the college's commitment to a broad
education for engineering students.
"I've heard some concerns as to
whether a student can get a liberal
education (solely) within the College of
Engineering," said engineering Dean
James Duderstadt. "We are very
seriously committed to a broad and
liberal education for our students."
Associate engineering Dean Charles
Vest agreed, arguing that exposing
engineering students to classes outside
the college would promote a broader
education. "It would be a healthier
overall system if LSA and engineering
students mingled and took courses
together," he said.
Most engineering professors,
however, said that while they didn't see
the proposed move as abandonment of
humanities, they did worry that it
would mean the loss of some unique ad-
vantages the college's own humanities
"It's quite likely that once everybody
gets used to it, it will work, but it's
going to be hard. There is a special
relationship between the (engineering
humanities) department and studen-
ts," said Prof. Robert Martin, who has
been in the department for 18 years.
"We have small classes and we spend
time teaching. I'm not sure that will
happen (in LSA) the way it does in (the
The proposed move, initiated
primarily to save money, will not be as
economical as it appears since both
Duderstadt and LSA curriculum dean
James Cather agree that the college
would have to pay the costs LSA would
incur in teaching the 4,200 students who
would be making the switch.

Reagan tells Arab leaders
to 'come out of the closet'
WASHINGTON- President Reagan will tell Arab leaders that the road to
peace in the Middle East requires them to "come out of the closet" and
openly recognize Israel, a senior State Department official said yesterday.
Briefing reporters on a visit by a six-nation delegation from the Arab
League, the official said there are some "constructive elements" in an Arab
peace plan adopted last month at Fez, Morocco.
But he said it is essential that moderate Arab nations, especially Saudi
Arabia, give Jordan a mandate to negotiate with Israel on behalf of
Palestinians in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. He said he
thinks King Hussein of Jordan would negotiate if he has Arab backing.
The delegation wants to explain the Arab plan to Reagan in a meeting at
the White House today. Reagan also will lobby for his own peace initiative,
unveiled Sept. 1.
The Arab nations want a separate Palestinian state in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip-territories occupied since 1967 by Israel. Reagan's plan calls
for Palestinian self-rule in association with Jordan. Israel says it won't give
up the West Bank under any circumstances.
Stocks rise to new highs
NEW YORK- The Dow Jones industrial average struggled to reach its
highest level in nearly 10 years yesterday on a late-buying surge that showed
Wall Street's resolve to drive the blue chip indicator past its all-time peak.
Trading topped the 100 million-share mark for the 15th time as large in-
stitutional investors swarmed to the market from the outset. They backed
off a bit until the end when they saw signs that the little guy was buying.
"This rally will continue because there is so much money around from the
All-Savers certificates and certificates of deposit," said Lucien Hooper, a 63-
year veteran on Wall Street.
Speculation that the Federal Reserve would cut its discount rate inten-
sified as West Germany lowered its discount charges. Experts said West
Germany would not have moved unless it was certain the American central
bank would act.

UAW sets vote on Chrysler strike
DETROIT- Members of the United Auto Workers union will vote Tuesday
on whether to strike Chrysler Corp. or to continue working under the expired
contract until after Jan. 1, UAW President Douglas Fraser said yesterday.
"There will be a referendum with two proposals . . . to suspend the
negotiations until immediately after the Christmas holidays or strike
Chrysler Corporation at 10 a.m. on Nov. 1," Fraser said at a news conferen-
Fraser said the ballot will go out to workers in the next day or two and
workers also will receive a letter telling them about the vote. The ballots'are
to be turned in at the plants on Tuesday and results of the vote should be
known that night, he said.
The automaker's refusal to grant an immediate pay raise caused a break-
down in negotiations on Monday. The rank-and-file had overwhelmingly
rejected a tentative contract reached Sept. 16.
"It's futile to continue negotiations now," Fraser said. "We're content to
delay negotiations until after the holidays."
Fraser said he hoped the U.S. economy will be better in January and
Chrysler will be able to offer workers more.
Chrysler employs 43,200 autoworkers in the United States plus 41,900
reported on indefinite layoff this week. Fraser said laid-off workers who
have remained "in good standing" will be allowed to vote.
Irish militants win election
BELFAST, Northern Ireland - Militants from both sides of Northern Ire-
land's religious divide won election to the new assembly yesterday, bringing
taunts of "murderer" from Protestants and cries of "we shall not be moved"
Their reaction dimmed any hopes that Ulster's bloodshed will end.
Gerry Adams, a leader of the Irish Republican Army's political front, and
his firebrand rival, the Rev. Ian Paisley, both won election to the 78-member
Assembly that London set up to bring the minority Catholics into the political
process so the British army eventually could get out of Northern Ireland.
Both moderate and extremist Catholic candidates have said they will refuse
to take their seats in the assembly, and the Protestants have refused to share
The victories by the three Sinn Fein candidates appeared to deal a blow to
British government hopes of creating a forum for uniting the Catholic
minority and Protestant majority in the province.
U.S. limits steel imports
WASHINGTON - The United States and Europe agreed yesterday to limit
shipments of European steel to this country, ending a bitter dispute between
The agreement, reached hours before a deadline for imposing penalty
duties on imported steel, was accepted by U.S. steelmakers who had blamed
the imports for contributing to their worst financial crunch since the
President Reagan announced the settlement while on a campaign swing in
Omaha, Neb., and hailed it as "good news" for the steel industry and for the
It will mean, he said, "more and lasting jobs in the steel industry, which
will translate into good news on the employment front."
Had the restrictions been in place in 1981, Commerce Secretary Malcolm
Baldrige said, there would have been 25,000 to 30,000 more jobs for the U.S.
