MSU men
charged
in dorm
rape
EAST LANSING (UPI)- Six Michigan State University
students, one of them a para-professional counselor for
minority students, are being held on charges they raped
an MSU student at a dormitory party.
A seventh man, a student at Ferris State College, also
has been charged in the Nov. 21 incident.
THE VICTIM said one of the men called her and invited
her to a party Nov. 21.
Upon arriving and discovering she was the only woman
there, she tried to leave but was unable to, the woman
said.
She said the men removed her clothing and raped her
one at a time. She said after the third assault she was too
ired to resist.
THE MSU campus police said they learned of the
assault from officials at Lansing's Sparrow Hospital
where the woman went for treatment.
Charged with one count of first-degree criminal sexual
conduct is Vincent Lewis; 22, of Detroit, a minority aide at
MSU.
James Stider, assistant vice president for student af-
fairs, said minority aides are students selected as para-
professional counselors to provide personal counseling for
black students.
THE AIDES are selected from a field of applicants
ased on their leadership qualities and academic
achievement, he said.
Vincent was the aide responsible for minority students
in Emmons Hall, where the rape allegedly occurred.
Officials said his alleged role in the incident is under in-
vestigation.
THE MSU students were arraigned in East Lansing
District Court Monday and demanded preliminary
examination on the charges.
They were then sent to the Ingham County Jail when,
they were unable to post $10,000 bond on each count again-
st them.
Charged with one count of criminal sexual conduct are
Previn Dixon, 18, of Detroit; Marc Seay, 18, of Pontiac;
David Duren, 18, of Detroit and Anthony Batiste, 18, of
Detroit.
Charged with two counts are Kevin Smith, 19, of
Detroit and Anthony Jemison, 19, of Big Rapids, a stu-
dent at Ferris State.

Ke ned y to announce
he won' run in 1984

WASHINGTON (AP) -
President Reagan, facing stiff
congressional opposition and fear-
ful of losing next year's tax cut
completely, abandoned his inten-
tion yesterday of asking Congress
to move up the date of the reduc-
tion from July to January.
After meeting with Republican
congressional leaders Reagan said
"We're no going to make a push"
for moving up the scheduled tax
cut. Instead, he said, he will con-
centrate on resisting anticipated
efforts to delay or even cancel the
10 percent tax rate reduction.
"WE AGREED that our most
important objective for this final
session is to protect the cuts that
are already in place," Reagan said
shortly before departing for a five-
day trip to Latin America. Asked
if he thought his third-year cut can
be preserved, Reagan replied, "I
think it can be saved; I'm sure of
it."
In addition to saving the tax cut,
the president said the Republican
leadership agreed major GOP
priorities in the current lame-duck
Congress should be to complete ac-
tion on 10 outstanding ap-
propriations bills, passage of a
bipartisan $5.5 billion plan to
finance highway, bridge and tran-

sit repairs through a nickel-a-
gallon increase in the federal
gasoline tax and his enterprise
zone legislation that would provide
tax incentives for industry to
locate in depressed inner city
areas.
"Our tax program, along with
the highway program, the enter-
prise zone initiative and our efforts
to hold down spending are essen-
tial to restoring a healthy
America," Reagan said.
He said the highway construc-
tion bill would "stimulate several
hundred thousand new jobs in the
hard-hit construction and related
industries."
THE president said he was op-
posed to another $5 billion- job-
creating program proposed Mon-
day by House Democratic leaders.
"By the time that got into place,
it would ignore all the things that
are happening to the economy and
it would be self-defeating," he said
of the Democrats' plan.
Reagan listed several other
"pieces of unfinished business" he
wants Congress to address, in-
cluding his controversial MX
missile program, the Caribbean
Basin Initiative, the Clean Air Act,

BOSTON (UPI)- Sen. Edward
Kennedy (D-Mass.) plans to an-
nounce today that he will not run for
president in 1984, it was reported
yesterday.
The Boston Globe, in a story for
today's editions, said sources close
to the Massachusetts senator
divulged that he will hold a news
conference in Washington to an-
nounce his decision.
THE NEWSPAPER said indica-
tions were that Kennedy has decided
against running, and that his
decision is final.

Ten years ago, Kennedy made a
surprise announcement that he
would not run for the presidency in
1976. His reasons then are the same
now, the Globe said-concern for his
family and consideration of the
political climate.
THE GLOBE said Kennedy was
advised not to run by family mem-
bers he met with over the
Thanksgiving holiday at Squaw
Island on Cape Cod and political
associates whose counsel he values
most.
The advice he received from

associates was that his chances of
being elected president were not
good, the newspaper said. A source
indicated that Kennedy's three
children were not in favor of his run-
ning.
"There are three decisive votes
there," the source said, referring to
the Kennedy children, Edward Jr.,
Karl, and Patrick. "And right now I
don't think he has a majority. I'm
not sure he has even one vote.'
"And if they don't want him to run,
he will not do it," the source said.

The Five Year Plan administrators
tre using to size down the University in
the face of its shrinking budget will un-
dergo public scrutiny tomorrow night in
an open forum at Rackham Am-
phitheatre.
The goals and priorities set by the
University to shape its future will be
debated publicly for the first time since
the plan went into effect last February.
AT THE forum, a panel of students,
faculty, and administrative leaders will
explain priorities already determined
in the areas of teaching, research, and
financial aid, according to Michigan
Student Assembly President Amy
Moore.

The panel will also introduce alter-
nate avenues for the University to pur-
sue, Moore said.
The discussion is mainly intended to
spark debate among those attending,
Moore said. "The whole thrust of this is
for public comment," she said. "It's a
listening thing (for the panel) more
than anything else."
THIS IS the first time the decision
makers will be able to respond to
suggestions and criticism of the plan at
an open forum, although the plan has
been in effect almost a year, and one
unit has already been closed, Moore
said.
The five year plan is the University's
strategy to selectively cut or close
schools and units that aren't perfor-
ming up to par, and channel the saved

money into areas the University wants
to excel in.
Opening the forum, Vice Iresident
for Academic Affairs Billy Frye will
discuss the priorities he put forth last
February, including improving faculty
salaries, increasing financial aid for
graduate students, stimulating new
areas of research, and improving un-
dergraduate teaching.
In her portion of the discussion,
Moore said she will propose holding
down tuition rates as a high priority for
the future. Students have been hit with
tuition hikes double the inflation rate
for the last several years.
She said she will also urge University
decision-makers to give more weight to
financial aid for undergraduates, she
said. The forum begins at 8:00 p.m.

Cuban
aggression
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Reagan set out yesterday for a four-
nation tour of Latin America with a vow
to "help the actual and potential vic-
tims of Soviet-abetted, Cuban-inspired
attacks in the region."
Reagan's first stop was Brazil,
followed by visits to Colombia and then
e2 the troubled Central America region,
where, he contended, Fidel Castro's
Cuba "has become more and more a
Soviet satellite and a willing conduit for
advancing aggressive Communism."
The president's remarks about Cuba
were contained in written answers he
gave to questions submitted by Latin
American newspapers. The White
House released the comments at the
start of the trip.
Reagan said Cuba, "by its support for
amed violence and subversion against
its neighbors, is indeed a threat to the
peace of the Americas. Were it not for
the Soviet Union, which gives massive
aid in the form of arms and money - $3
billion to $4 billion this year alone -
Cuba could not afford to do what it is
doing."

LONDON (AP) - The judge trying
Canadian Professor Hugh George
Hambleton on charges of spying for the
Soviet Union ordered the court into
closed session yesterday as prosecutors
detailed the harm the former NATO of-
ficial allegedly did to the 15-nation
Western alliance.
Before press and public were evicted,
the prosecution said Hambleton gave
photographs of more than 80 top-secret
NATO documents to Soviet agents in
Paris while working as a NATO
economist from 1956 to 1961.

ATTORNEY General Sir Michael
Havers told the court Hambleton con-
fessed to police that he got weekly radio
instructions from the KGB, the Soviet
secret police with whom he said he had
a "sense of belonging."
The documents he gave the Soviets
had NATO's "Cosmic" classification,
meaning disclosure would result in
"exceptionally grave damage" to the
military alliance, the attorney general
said. In Britain's other current
espionage case, Lance Cpl. Philip
