semi-approval

to

future of detente

MOSCOW (AP)- Communist Party
chief Yuri Andropov said yesterday the
future belongs to detente, but declared
that the Kremlin will make no
"preliminary concessions" toward im-
proving relations with the United
States.
In his first address to the . party
leadership since being named general
secretary Nov. 12 to replace the late
Leonid Brezhnev, Andropov stressed
the continuation of Brezhnev's foreign
policies, including Kremlin overtures to
China.
ON DOMESTIC matters, he announ-
ced the promotion of a former regional
deputy director of the KGB to Politburo
voting status, and praised the work of
Andrei Kirilenko, 76, whose retirement
from the Politburo was officially an-
nounced yesterday after several mon-
ths of rumors that the number 3
Kremlin man was out.
Andropov complained of a sluggish
pace in adopting new technology and
announced "cautious" experiments
may be tried on freeing factories and
collectives of rigid central control. He
said officials will be taking into account
"the experience of fraternal coun-
tries," believed to be a reference to
other East European states such as
Hungary, where he was a Soviet
diplomat in the 1950s.
"We are deeply convinced that the
'70s, characterized by detente were
not-as is asserted today by certain
imperialist leaders-a chance episode
in the difficult history of mankind," he
said in a 40-minute speech to the party
Central Committee. "No, the policy of
detente is by no means a past stage.
The future belongs to this policy."
THE SPEECH was carried by the
English-language service of the official
news agency Tass and read in its en-
tirety on evening television news.
In an apparent reference to Reagan
administration statements that the new
Soviet leadership should send a signal
such as pulling its troops out of
Afghanistan, Andropov said:

Andropov
... gives detente tempered approval
"Statements in which the readiness
for normalizing relations is linked with
the demand that the Soviet Union pay
for this with some sort of preliminary
concessions ... do not sound serious, to
say the least.
"WE SHALL not agree to this ... we
have nothing to cancel," he said, noting
the Reagan administration sanctions
after martial law in Poland, against the
Soviet natural gas pipeline, and rejec-
tion of the 1979 SALT II treaty.
He said the arms race must not be
allowed to get out of control. "Mankind
cannot endlessly put up with the arms
race and with war unless it wants to put
its future at stake," said the 68-year-old
former chief of the KGB security
police.
"We are for the search, on a healthy
basis, acceptable to the sides concer-
ned, for a settlement of most com-
plicated problems, especially of course,
the problems of curbing the arms race,
involving both nuclear and conven-
tional arms," he said. "We are for
equality ... for honest agreement."

Federal judge throws out
Louisiana's creationism law
NEW ORLEANS- A federal judge yesterday threw out Louisiana's law
providing for the teaching of creationism in public schools.
U.S. District Judge Adrian Duplantier granted a request for summary
judgment from the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education,
which had contended the state's 1974 constitution gives it exclusive control
over classroom curriculum.
The board also said it needed complete power to shelter the public schools
from the whims of politicians.
A similar trial in Arkansas last year brought a federal ruling that its
creationism law was a blatant attempt to bring religion into the schools.
Proponents of the Louisiana law have said they would take the case to the
55th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals if they lost in district court.
The Louisiana law has been under suspension pending resolution of the
legal fight.
Chrysler reopens talks with UAW
HIGHLAND PARK, Mich.- Chrysler Corp. reopened talks with the
United Auto Workers union yesterday to try to end a Canadian strike and
agree on terms for U.S. workers. But a top company official said Chrysler
still cannot afford an immediate pay raise.
"We haven't found any money anywhere," Thomas Miner, vice president
of industrial relations, said as bargaining began at Chrysler headquarters.
"Our hope is to end this strike and, therefore, we're meeting," Miner said.
"We're going to explore every possibility in an attempt to do just that
(resolve the walkout)."
About 10,000 Canadian autoworkers at Chrysler Canada Ltd. walked out
Nov. 5 after the automaker said it could not afford to give them the im-
mediate raise they demanded.
U.S. autoworkers rejected a tentative contract in the fall over the same
issue. They voted against a strike after talks collapsed Oct. 18 and in favor of
delaying negotiations until January.
Polish soldier hijacks plane
BERLIN- A Polish militiaman, assigned as a guard at the "last minute,"
hijacked a Polish LOT airliner to West Berlin yesterday, firing shots of
jubilation over his escape from Poland on arrival, a U.S. spokesman said.
The guard seized the twin-engined AN-24 carrying 31 passengers and a
crew of four on a domestic flight from Wroclaw to Gdansk with a stop in
Warsaw even though there were two other security guards aboard.
In addition to the hijacker, four passengers took the opportunity to escape
and said they would remain in the West, a West Berlin police spokesman
said.
The American spokesman said the guard was so excited on his arrival at
West Berlin's Templehof airport that he jumped from the plane to the
ground without waiting for a gangway and fired six shots of joy into the air.
Number of guerrillas in Salvador
underestimated, analysts say
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador- The number of leftist guerrillas fighting
in this Central American nation is being underestimated by about 2,000
soldiers, some U.S. intelligence analysts believe.
Those analysts say there are 7,000 hard-core guerrilla fighters although
other analysts are holding to the official U.S. estimate of about 5,000, accor-
ding to U.S. embassy and State Department officials who asked not to be
identified.
These officials, who monitor day-to-day developments in the conflict, said
the possible higher number does not mean that the guerrillas are gaining in
the 3-year-old civil war against the U.S.-backed rightist government.
One embassy official said the Salvadoran army is "much better" than it
was when the Reagan administration stepped up military aid and training to
El Salvador in early 1981. He claimed that improvement could lead to effec-
tive defeat of the guerrillas in "another year if you really go at it."
Because of increasing military pressure and interdiction of supply routes,
the official said, guerrilla forces are "younger, not as well-trained and not as
well-armed... Conditions in the camps are very bad. No medicine. No new
clothing."
Thompson declared winner of
Illinois governor's race
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - Republican Gov. James Thompson was declared
winner of the closest Illinois governor's race in history, yesterday three
weeks after the election, and Democratic challenger Adlai Stevenson sought
a recount.
"It's over as far as I'm concerned," Thompson said. The certified tally
gave Thompson 1,816,101 votes and Stevenson 1,811,027, a margin of 5,074
votes or just 0.139 percent.
Thompson signed a certificate that declared him re-elected to an un-
precedented third straight term.
An hour later, Stevenson, a former U.S. senator, made his expected an-
nouncement that he would take the first steps toward a recount, which in
Illinois is complex and costly.
An additional 46.418 votes were cast for third-party candidates, so that

Thompson won with 49.43 percent of the ballots cast.
"We've come a long way and we're not going to let up now in the last
mile," Stevenson said of his plans to contest the election. He has said he is
confident a recount will favor him because of "inevitable" human and
machine error in any election where more than 3.67 million ballots are cast.

Daily editors plead
not-guilty It'n Ohio

By GEORGE ADAMS
Two Michigan Daily editors who were
arrested in Columbus, Ohio last
weekend entered pleas yesterday of
not-guilty on charges of resisting
arrest.
Photography Editor Brian Masck and
Sports Editor Robert Wojnowski were
arrested and jailed at approximately
2:30 a.m. Saturday after Masck attem-
pted to photograph the arrest of another
person. The two were working on a
feature story about the mood in Colum-
bus the night before the annual

showdown between Michigan and Ohio
State.
EDITOR-IN-Chief David Meyer said
the Daily would pay for Masck and
Wojnowski's legal counsel, and said
Columbus attorney J.H. Sanford was
handling the case now, although he had
not officially been retained yet as the
defense attorney. Sanford filed the not
guilty pleas yesterday in Franklin
County Municipal Court.
"The whole thing would be laughable
if it weren't so incredibly incon-
venient," Meyer said yesterday.
Meyer said the Daily may file a coun-
ter suit for false arrest and possible
damage to the photography equipment
after this trial is finished, but added
"our main concern is to get these
charges dismissed."
Both Masck and Meyer said the
charges were "patently false."
Sanford said if convicted, Masck and
Wojnowski would face up to six months
in jail and/or a $1,000 fine. He said he
expects the pre-trial sometime in
December.
Sgt. Rass Oakley -of the Columbus
Police Department said there was no
official comment on the Daily's
decision to fight the charges, but said,
"It's always been our view that if
someone feels they are not guilty, it's
their obligation to fight."
"Come to think of it," he added, "I
can't remember a reporter being
arrested who didn't fight."

academic freedom."
Kahane's Ann Arbor visit - although
ultimately peaceful - was punctuated
with several threats of violence. Ron
Glassman, Kahane's Ann Arbor contact,
received an anonymous letter which
threatened to' "put a surprise in (his)
Cracker, Jacks." Glassman said the
letter also contained curses against
Kahane and a promise of revenge for
PLO chief Yassar Arafat.
"It's very, very distressing," said
Glassman, "but, I can't run scared."
Glassman turned the letter over to Ann
Arbor Police who responded by
stationing two uniformed officers and a
detective at the speech.
KAHANE WAS quick to blame his
lecture cancellation on pressure from
Jewish groups. "There is no quesiton,"
said the rabbi, "that there is a B'nai
B'rith Hillel directive that they are not
to give me a forum." Kahane added
that "If Jewish leaders don't like
something I'm doing, I must be doing
something right."
In an exclusive interview with the
Daily, Kahane said that had he arrived
last week, he might have filed suit
against UAC to gain his right to speak.
"(The University) doesn't care on its
own if I speak or not, had I been here
earlier I would have taken (UAC) to
court." Kahane has already filed suit
against a Southfield synogogue which
canceled his speech scheduled for
tonight.
An anonymous caller warned League
officials Sunday that there was a bomb
planted in the building. Security of-
ficials said they ignored the threat but
monitored the building carefully.

Campus Security Director Walt
Stevens sent three officers to the
speech.
AT THE LAST minute, Kahane's
speech was moved from the second
floor Hussey Room to the basement
Snack Bar as a safety precaution. "We
wanted to protect property," said
League Director Patricia Larson. "He
was scheduled to appear in a room with
a lot of valuable furniture."
Kahane's speech was full of sar-
casm and jokes which eased some of
the hostility and tension surrounding
the evening. "I've been running into
this since 1968 (when he founded the
JDL) and it's not gotten better, it has
gotten worse."~
Although Kahane's lecture was open
to all students, the rabbi said it was the
Jewish students on campus he hoped to
reach. I have a very definite message
for Jews," he said. "I really don't care
what the non-Jew thinks."
In his speech Kahane lashed out at
international Jewish leaders calling
them "dwarfs and pygmies in a time
of giant problems." "They are only
worried about being embarrassed in
front of the gentiles, so they let six
million Jews (in the Holocaust) die
unembarrassed," said the JDL chief.
He also was critical of Jews who are
quick to pin the blame on others. "I
think Jews who sit around and worry
because Christians don't help Jews are
fools. Jews also have brothers and
sisters, it's not the monopoly of any
other ethnic group, and though the right
to sit in the front on a bus is important,
it is not as important as ending gas
chambers."

FINANCIAL AID

FOR
MEDICAL STUDENTS
Limited numbers of full 3 and 4 year schol-
arships are available to medical and osteo-
pathic students.
" Tuition
" Academic Fees
" Textbooks
" Supplies plus
" $556 per month
To apply you must be a U.S. Citizen, be of high moral
character, pass a physical, and either be currently en-
rolled in their first year of school or have taken their
MCAT, applied to medical school, and be in their sen-
ior veor of underaroduate studies.

Reagan said his proposed
deployment "would require the Soviets
to make costly new technical develop-
ments if they wish to even contemplate
a surprise attack. Most of the Soviet
Countermeasures proposed are really
no more than technical dreams on
which no Soviet planner or politician
would bet the fate of his country."
Immediate disagreement over basing

plans would be moot, however, if MX
opponents are accurate in asserting
that they now have rounded up enough
votes to deny financing for production
of the weapon.
MERCHANTS on Main Street in
Cheyenne, Wyo. welcomed the new MX
missile as a boon to the state's
economy, but two long-time enemies-
environmentalists and ranchers-are
joined in opposition. Sister Francis
Russell, leader of a regional anti-MX
group, said southeastern Wyoming
would become a strategic target with
deployment of the MX near Francis
Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne.
"Junior high students are now calling
Cheyenne the 'powderkeg of the
globe,' "she said.
