Rumors indicate Brezhnev may be dead
From AP and UPI
MOSCOW - Soviet television broad-
cast somber music in place of regularly
;scheduled entertainment programs
yesterday, setting off rumors about the
possible death of a Communist Party
Recent reports have raised questions
"about the health of both President
teonid Brezhnev, 75, and Politburo
member Andrei Kirilenko, 75.
In Washington, U.S. officials, who
requested anonymity, said they were
aware of "a lot of rumors in Moscow"
that Brezhnev had died but had been
unable to confirm them.
Officials assigned to the Soviet desk
at the State Department said they had
received no reports from the U.S. Em-
bassy in Moscow that Breshnev had
Standard procedure in the case of the
death of a Politburo member is to wait
a day or two before announcing it. This
is to decide how the news will be
presented and agree on arrangements
for the funeral.
Brezhnev was last seen Sunday when
he took part in celebrations marking the
65th anniversary of the Bolshevik
Revolution. Kirilenko was absent from
the celebrations, as was a third aging
Soviet leader, Arvid Pelshe, 83, a
veteran of the Revolution who served as
head of the party Control Commission.
Soviet officials were not available for
The local television channel in
Moscow replaced a hockey game With a
somber piano concert.
In the past, announcement of deaths
of important persons have been
preceded by mourning music. The
rumors began after a 7:30 p.m. concert
in honor of Soviet police was replaced
with a patriotic film about Vladimir
Lenin, founder of the Soviet state.
There was no explanation for the
In addition, the rumors were fueled
by the apparent absence of,Brezhnev's
signature on a message to Angolan
President Jose Eduardo Dos Santos on
the seventh anniversary of that coun-
try's independence. Last year's
message carried Brezhnev's signature.
The main news program"Vremya"
and two editions of "Today in the
World" - dedicated to international
news - concluded their programs
without any indication on the health of
Brezhnev, at the Sunday celebration,
was muffled in a scarf, fur hat, heavy
coat and gloves. He returned the
salutes of passing marchers and waved
at the civilian procession that followed
Kirilenko, 76, a 20-year veteran of the
Communist Party's ruling body, was
once considered a leading candidate to
replace Brezhnev. But he was not seen
at a Kremlin fete Friday evening and
his portrait was missing from
decorations for the anniversary parade
in Red Square - adding to speculation he
had resigned or was ousted from the
With no clear successor to Breshnev
in line, Kremlin-watchers said they ex-
pect Brezhnev aide Konstantin Cher-
nenko or ex-KGB chief Yuri Andropov -
now a party secretary with respon-
sibility for ideology - would take over as
interim leader if Brezhnev died or was

12 INOIVIDUAL THEATRES

By ROB FRANK
It has been said that some are born to
power, some acquire it, and some have
it thrust upon them. If this adage is
true, LSA-SG presidential candidate
Barry Powers is in the final category.
Powers, running on the newly formed
Legislative Efficiency for our
Educational Demands 83 slate, claims
the seven other members of LEED 83
drafted him as their candidate.
"The slate asked me to run right
around Halloween," said Powers, a
recent transfer from Wayne State
University. "I spoke with them, and we
agreed I would probably be most effec-
tive as president."
Powers first joined LSA-SG when it
had an open seat last September. He
said that since that time, he has
brought to the assembly a point of view
not shared by many of its other mem-
bers. "I'm usually the lone dissenter,".
Powers emphasized that his biggest
concern for next year is increasing
student participation in LSA and in
student government. "Most people
don't have an investment of time in this
college," he said.
"If students, instead of going to the
bar three nights a week, went to the bar
only two nights and used the other to get
involved in something that interests
them, student government would be
much more effective."
Also, he said, while LSA-SG has
traditionally invested much of its time
and effort in lobbying for movements
like the nuclear freeze, Powers says"he
would like to see the assembly's money
go to more tangible projects. "With that
amount of money (about $10,000 a year)
we should be able to do'some things that
are really spectacular.''
According to Powers, LSA-SG should
redirect its efforts toward the concerns
of the college. "I feel college gover-
nment should remove itself from the
state and local level governments," he
said. "The government should be

win the election with vice presidential
candidate Mark Greenleaf, he is not en-

election. "My getting in or someone
else getting in is not going to make
