Thompson elected Ill. governor

IN BRIEF

From AP and UPI
CHICAGO- Incumbent James
Thompson emerged the winner yester-
day over Democrat Adlai Stevenson in
the photo-finish Illinois governor's
race, according to final unofficial
returns that gave him a margin of 9,401
votes out of 3.6 million.
With unofficial returns in from all,
11,6423precincts, Thompson had
1,813,133 votes to Stevenson's
1,803,732-a margin of about one-
quarter of 1 percent.
THE TALLY was not completed until
more than 2 days after polls closed
Tuesday, amid reports of empty or im-
properly sealed ballot boxes, moisture-
damaged ballots and missing ballots.
The state Board of Elections will cer-
tify the official results on Nov. 22.
Elections officials, anticipating a
recount, ordered clerks in all 102 coun-
ties to secure the ballots. Stevenson did
not concede defeat, but Thompson
quickly claimed victory.
ANY DIFFERENCES discovered
during a recount would not change the
official result, but could be submitted
as part of a court challenge to the
results.
Officials said there has not been a
statewide recount of a major Illinois
race in recent history.
"Absolutely, we won," an elated
Thompson said after the last returns
from Chicago's normally Republican
suburbs put him ahead. "We beat 'em
and we beat'em good."
BUT THOMPSON still must survive
several more steps in the election
process and a possible court challenge
before taking the oath of office for a
third term.
Stevenson, who rebounded
dramatically from pre-electionpolls
that showed him trailing by up to 19
pqints, indicated he might challenge the
Reagan aj
From AP and UPI,
WASHINGTON - President Reagan
yesterday picked Donald Hodel, a close
friend of Interior Secretary James
Watt, to be the country's new energy
secretary.
Like Watt, Hodel has often come un-
der fire from environmentalists, but
unlike other energy secretaries, he is
unquestionably an expert on the subjec-
ts the agency handles.
HODEL, A 47-year-old lawyer now in
the No. 2 job at the Interior Depar-
tment, served for six years as head of
the giant Bonneville Power Ad-
ministration, the federal agency which
markets electricity in Western states.
The "naming of Hodel to replace
Energy Secretary James Edwards,
who resigned, came only three days af-
ter Election Day and was evidence the
administration had been holding back
major changes so voters wouldn't think
key aides were deserting the president.
Deputy press secretary Larry Speakes
who announced the appointment, said
there were no political overtones to the
timing.
HODEL, 47, who worked closesly
with the controversial Wattand guided
many of his proposals on Capitol Hill,
already has come under attack from

Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports
Cuban government officials
charged in drug conspiracy
MIAMI- Four Cuban government officials-two diplomats, a navy vice
admiral and the man who helped organize the 1980 Cuban boatlift-were
charged by the U.S. government in drug conspiracy indictments released
yesterday.
They were among 14 people accused of using the island "as a loading
station and source of supplies" for drug smugglers operating between
Colombia and the United States between October 1979 and January 1981.
The eight-count, 19-page indictment was sparse on details but mentioned
an alleged plan to smuggle 5 million methaqualone tablets into the United
States. The counts charged conspiracies to import marijuana and
methaqualone from Colombia, by way of Cuba.
The indictments resulted from at least four months of investigation by a
grand jury. The U.S. government decided to seek indictments against the
Cuban officials to draw international attention to their role, even though
there is little hope of prosecuting them.
"We are hopeful that we could get them from a third country if they
travel," said Brent Eaton, a spokesman for the Drug Enforcement Ad-
ministration. "Obviously, we can't get them from Cuba. This indictment
stays in effect for a long time."

results in court. But he said that
wouldn't be decided until after official
returns are announced.
"The way it's going, it looks to me as
if whichever side is the loser will have
to very seriously consider that option,"
Stevenson said in a television interview
shortly before the final unofficial retur-
ns were tallied.
BEFORE returns were announced
yesterday for 106 previously unreported
Cook County suburbs, unofficial returns

had shown Stevenson leading Thom-
pson by 2,952 votes.
Stevenson campaign attorney John
Schmidt said unofficial returns
tabulated by the Stevenson camp
showed the challenger with an "ex-
tremely slim majority."
"We end up essentially where we
thought we would end up, that is with an
extremely slim majority," Schmidt
said.
THE GOVERNOR vaulted into the

lead on the strength of votes in the
heavily Republican Chicago suburbs-
the final precincts to be counted. Those
totals were announced yesterday by
Cook County Clerk Stanley Kusper.
"These numbers are preliminary and
unofficial," Kusper said. "It is the first
time we have a ballpark number. It is
always possible there was a keypunch
error when you're punching 20 million
figures."

Oil profits tax struck down
WASHINGTON- In a decision that threatens billions of dollars in gover-
nment revenue, a federal judge yesterday declared the windfall oil profits
tax unconstitutional.
Government officials immediately vowed to challenge the decision by U.S.
District Judge Ewing Kerr in Cheyenne, Wyo. Because Kerr overturned an
act of Congress, the government can appeal directly to the Supreme Court.
"We do intend to appeal," said Treasury Department spokesman Marlin*.
Fitzwater. "We will continue to collect the taxes pending the appeal as the
judge's ruling allows."
Kerr concluded that the tax, imposed under the Carter administration, is
invalid because it exempts Alaskan oil and thus is not applied uniformly to
all states.
The tax, the judge found, "on its face says that one state, Alaska, is not
subject to the same tax at the same rate as all the other states. This is a clear
violation of the constitutional requirement of uniformity."

President Denny Shaffer wrote Reagan
last month when it was reported that
Hodel was under consideration to head
the department that Reagan seeks to
dismantle.
"Ronald Reagan has continued to fill
his Cabinet with anti-environmental
zealots," said Rafe Pomerance,
president of Friends of the Earth. 'The
symbolism of giving Watt's deputy a
seat on the Cabinet is absolutely in-

credible."
CRITICS OF the administration's
energy policies complain that conser-
vation programs and efforts to develop
renewable energy sources have been
almost eliminated in favor of reviving
nuclear power.
Hodel, while head of the power ad-
ministration, derided environmen-
talists as "prophets of shortages" and
an "arrogant faction which is dedicated
to bringing our society to a halt."
Some administration officials had
questioned whether Hodel should bel

Hodel was the best person for the job
because of his commitment to carrying
out Reagan's pledge to abolish the
agency and transfer most of its fun-

said administration sources.
Hodel's appointment was announced
without fanfare. Neither Reagan nor
Hodel were present.

Nixon, ex-aides to hold reunion,

WASHINGTON (UPI) - Richard
Nixon and many of his former top White
House aids will enjoy a nostalgic
reunion at a Washington hotel tonight to
celebrate the 10th anniversary of his ill-
fated 1972 re-election as president.
The sentimental gathering at a black-'
tie dinner was arranged by Ronald
Walker, former chief of Nixon's advan-
ce teams, with a guest list of about 200,
including many prominent people who
figured in the Watergate scandal.

"IT'S NOT A Watergate reunion,"
said Walker. He said he and 46 of his
former advance men decided. it was
time for a get-together after a decade,
and planned a weekend together with
their wives, including a White House
tour today, a luncheon and a brunch "to
sober up."
"We're just going to get together and
tell stories," Walker said.
Nixon and other members of his
palace guard are invited guests,

One off-campus landlord, Howard.
McGrew, manager of West Campus

the few vacancies he is experiencing
are the first in his seven years as
manager.
"Western lost 1,000-some students
since last year and that has to have
something to do with it (the vacancy
rate)," McGrew said.
McGrew also said that though he has
not had to cut the rent rates, he has had
to take other actions. "We've pulled in
some of our expenditures," he said, ad-
ding that "over the past couple years
we have closed one building during the
summer to keep costs down."
McGrew said he doesn't believe the
problem will get better next year. He

Nicaraguan rebels supported
by U.S., residents report
LA MANZANILLA, Honduras- Nicaraguan rightist rebels using U.S. ar-
ms and equipment freely train and operate from bases inside Honduras in
their campaign to overthrow the leftist Managua regime, border residents
report.
A visit to a deserted commando base on a bushy hill near La Manzanilla,
close to the Caribbean coast, showed clearings and campfires where
residents said up to 500 men had been based less than a two-hour walk from
the border.
The rightists left behind a can of surplus U.S. military issue gun oil; U.S.
military K-ration bags packaged in Edinburg, Texas; empty boxes of Win-
chester-Western pistol shells packaged in New Haven, Conn.; instructions,
in English, for use of hammock tents, and empty medicine ampules with in-
structions in English.
Israel to add new settlements
TEL AVIV, Israel - Israel is to build or extend 20 Jewish settlements in
the occupied West Bank of the Jordan during the next 12 months, a top set-
tlement official said yesterday.
Deputy Agriculture Minister Michael Dekel, who heads an interdepar-
tmental committee on settlement construction, did not say how many of the
20 would be new outposts, but reiterated Israel's goal to populate 160 West
Bank settlements with 100,000 Jews within the next five years.
Dekel, interviewed on Israel radio, said settlement construction "is a con-
tinuous process, and more settlements will be built."
Presently there are about 25,000 Jews in 103 settlements built since Israel
captured the West Bank from Jordan in 1967.
"I don't know exactly what the Americans got alarmed about," he said.
"If this government policy doesn't please the Americans, it's the Americans'
problem," he said.
Soviets to retaliate if NATO
deploys new missiles in Europe
MOWCOW. - Viktor Grishin, a member of the ruling Politburo, warned
yesterday that if NATO deploys new U.S. nuclear missiles in Europe the
Soviets will respond "with whatever measures it may find necessary."
In a Kremlin speech marking the 65th anniversay of the Bolshevik
Revolution Grishin also accused U.S. leaders of using the myth about the
Soviet menace as a coverup" to seek military superiority and dictate
"political terms to others."
Western diplomats said Grishin broke no new ground n the speech.
Grishin, head of the Moscow party organization, said the Soviets were doing
everything possible to promote peace "at a time when the ruling circles of
the United States intend to cross out everything positive that was achieved in
the '70s, to bury detente and to revive the cold war."
A frail-looking President Leonid Brezhnev was among an audience of 5,000
at the flag-draped Palace of Congresses, but his long-time heir apparent,
Andrei Kirilenko, was absent.
