Spy satellite
nears Earth's

WASHINGTON (UPI) - Emergency
teams the world over stood ready
yesterday for the fiery return of
fragments from Russia's atom-
powered spy satellite, expected to rain
somewhere on Earth Sunday or Mon-
Part of the remains of Cosmos 1402
fell to the fringe of the atmosphere
yesterday morning.
AS OF 6 A.M. EST, the satellite was
dipping as near as 105 miles, thewat-
mosphere's outer boundary, in a
slightly elliptical orbittaking it out to
110 miles at the farthest point.
In Washington, U.S. intelligence of--
ficials said a second section of the
satellite, possibly the core of its
uranium power supply, is expected to
smash down in February.
The twin forces of gravity and at-
mospheric friction will seal the doom of
the two-ton hulk - but only in the final
few hours will space watchers be able
to predict just where between the Ar-
ctic and Antarctic circles the drama
will end.
FRICTION will burn up the bulk of
the debris, but observers expect some
radioactive fragments remains to
smack down on Earth's surface. That
happened in 1978, when an earlier Soviet
spyship dumped debris on a remote
section of northwest Canada.

The fragments are given a 70 percent
chance of falling in the ocean, since that
much of the world is water, and only a 2
percent chance of hitting the United
Anticipation of Cosmos 1402's return
ranged from prayerful to playful -
reminiscent of the days in 1979 when the
world awaited the return of America's
Skylab, but with a generally more
serious tone this time because of the
nuclear pollution threat.
FEDERAL emergency teams trained
in dealing with radioactivity, along
with those in many states, were poised
to rush to the scene in the event the
debris hits anywhere in the United
States. Canada's radiation-detection
search equipment was on standby.
Alerts were declared in Japan,
Australia, Spain, West Germany,
Belgium, the Netherlands, Scandinavia
and, presumably, the Soviet Union -
itself a possible target.
IN WEST Germany, government of-
ficials did not kid around about the
situation, declaring they will bill
Moscow for the cost of their
precautionary measures regardless of
whether any debris hits there.
In Australia, where non-radioactive
chunks of Skylab fell on July 11, 1979
but caused no injuries or damage,
recovery teams were on full alert.

Shapiro fears severe cuts

Tenants unaware of rights

to cover higher property taxes and
mortgage rates. But Rose said it is the
raising of the rents which causes the
taxes to go up.
And because new landlords know
they can raise the rents, they are more
likely to pay a higher price for the
building, causing mortgage. rates to
DURING HIS address, Rose frequen-
tly cited local and state laws such as the
state Consumer Protection Act and the
local Truth in Renting Act. "These
laws," Rose said, "are on the books to
protect tenants, and tenants should not
be wary of using them."
The biggest problem is letting people
know about their rights, Rose said.

"Tenants have a right to good main-
tenance, they have a right to the return
of their security deposits (except in cer-
tain instances), and they have the right
to create more rights," he said.
Though the workshop was sparsely
attended, Rose said he hopes to con-
tinue them in an effort to inform
students about their rights as tenants.
"I hope we can be doing them every few
weeks on certain specific topics to ex-
pand the amount of information that
gets out to the public."
Those who did attend were pleased
with the presentation. "I feel like I've
been to a therapy session," said LSA
senior Julie Zawisza. "I never knew I
could do these things (force landlords to
comply with the law)."

and taxes is the only politically feasible'
The council recommended that the
cuts in higher education be implemen-
ted this summer when the state is en-
ding its fiscal year and most colleges
are beginning theirs, McCarthy said.
Cuts at that time would allow the state
to balance its books in this year, while
universities would be able to deal with
them in their next fiscal year.
Even that would not give the Unvier-
sity enough time to plan for cuts, war-
ned Kennedy. Last year, ad-
ministrators devised a plan for cutting
$20 million from the University budget
over five years. This cut would force
them to deal with a cut well over half
that size in only one year, Kennedy
"I CAN'T honestly tell you what in
the world we would do," he said. 'Even
when you talk about eliminating whole
schools and colleges you would have to
line up five or six of them."
Shapiro, in his statement, suggested
that lawmakers raise taxes one tenth of
a percent further to avoid damaging
cuts to education.
The council, including members of
business, labor and academic com-
munities around the state, said the
state should raise its income tax from
4.6 to 5.6 percent for the next three and

a half years, saying a permanent in-
crease would not be in the state's best in-
Kennedy said any plan that does
away with the deep cuts wouldbetbetter
than the one proposed by the council.
"We've got to figure out a way to
handle this differently," he said. "I
just don't think people understand how
close we are to falling apart at the
ANY FURTHER cuts to higher
education would hurt the state's chan-
ces of recovery rather than help it,
because the state will be losing the
trained students and benefits of
University research, Kennedy said.
"It (the cut) is like cannabalizing
your children," he said, "You're telling
young people tough bananas, we can't,
help you." The governor and the
legislature are going to have to think
long and hard about how much
damage this will do, and what the long
term effects will be."
McCarthy said the $60 million figure
does not necessarily have to be a cut. A
recent practice by the state has been to
withhold funds with promises to repay
schools the money in the future. This
may be what happens, McCarthy said.
Kennedy, however, said he "hasn't
seen anything that says this is a tem-
porary deferral," and Blanchard has
emphasized that he is seeking per-
manent solutions to the state deficit
which deferrals would probably not

Soviets make cabinet changes
MOSCOW - The Soviet Union yesterday disclosed two more high-level
changes under new Soviet leader Yuri Andropov: the replacement of the
minister of trade and the deputy premier in charge of light industry and con-
sumer goods.
The Soviet news agency Tass said Grigory Vashchenko was named
minister of trade, replacing Alexander Struyev. The Communist Party
newspaper Pravda said Valentin Makeyev has been removed as one of 14
deputy prime ministers.
The changes were the latest in a series of personnel shifts since Andropov
assumed the top leadership post of general secretary following the death of
Leonid Brezhnev in November.
Many of the changes seem designed to put people close to Andropov into
positions of power and remove Brezhnev's appointees.
Reagan budget to boost taxes
WASHINGTON - President Reagan's upcoming budget will propose a
limit on tax-free health insurance premiums paid by employers and "con-
tingency" tax increases that would raise more than $40 billion a year from
late 1985 through 1988 to limit future deficits, administration sources said
The contingency tax increases are expected to include a crude oil fee,
which could add 12 cents a gallon to the cost of gasoline, and an income tax
surcharge. Such increases would only take effect if needed to keep future
deficits on a declining path toward $100 billion or less by 1988.
The tax restrictions on insurance premiums would begin in 1984 regar-
dless, according to one source.
Under the proposal, an employee could receive up to $2,100 a year - or
$175 a month - in tax-free employer paid premiums. Anything beyond that
would be taxed as if it were income.
The budget plan for the fiscal year beginning next October also will call for
$8 billion in defense cuts and more than $30 billion in othe spending cuts. Still,
the deficit is expected to be about $190 billion.
Mideast talks make headway
BEIRUT, Lebanon - U.S. presidential envoy Philip Habib was reported
making headway yesterday in his attempt to convince the Lebanese to allow
Americans to man electronic surveillance bases in Lebanon's central moun-
Lebanese radios said Habib discussed a compromise plan with President
Amin Gemayel that proposes the early warning stations be staffed by
American experts, and that the Gemayel government might permit tem-
porary U.S. control of the bases.
But Lebanese officials quoted by the radios said Gemayel's government
would not give in to Israel's demand that the mountaintop stations be man-
ned by Israelis.
Before flying to Beirut, Habib met in Jerusalem with Prime Minister
Menachem Begin, Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir, and Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon. Israel radio said the Israeli leaders stuck to their insistence on
retaining Israeli-manned monitoring stations in Lebanon. Lebanon has
refused the presence of any form of Israeli watchposts on its territory, war-
ning that Syria might seek similar security arrangements on Lebanese soil.
Baker won't seek re-election
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker of Tenn-
essee announced yesterday he will not seek re-election to a fourth term in
1984, freeing himself for a possible full-fledged run at the White House in
Baker, 57, told an afternoon press conference at Knoxville's airport that af-
ter serving in the, Senate since 1966 he wants to return to private life for
awhile. But he added, "I certainly do not plan to retire from politics."
Baker said he has not decided whether he will run for president in 1988 and
will not make his plans until after his Senate term ends: "I have made no
secret that I would like to be president," he said.
Baker urged President Reagan to seek re-election in 1984 and said he
would work "actively and enthusiastically" for him. He said he would
"maintain an active interest in GOP affairs.
Baker has won high marks from Republicans and Democrats alike for his
leadership style in the Senate. The first Republican majority leader in a
quarter century, he is good-humored,' unfailingly polite to his colleagues,
and willing to put in the long hours it took to mold the 54 Republicans into a
cohesive force for Reaganomics.
Inflation held to 3.9 percent
WASHINGTON - Record declines in gasoline prices and mortgage rates
held inflation to just 3.9 percent last year, the slowest rate in a decade, the
government reported yesterday. The White House boasted of that "good
new," but private analysts termed it a mixed blessing,as the by product of
the severe recession.
The government also reported that orders to U.S. factories for "big-
ticket" durable goods soared a record 12 percent in December. Those orders
were propelled by huge requests for military hardware.
The 1982 inflation pace was less than half the 8.9 percent of 1981 and one-
third the 1980 increase of 12.4 percent.
In December alone, the Labor Department's Consumer Price Index
plunged 0.3 percent, only the second time since 1965 that overall prices have

At the White House, presidential spokesman Larry Speakes called the
price report "good news. It shows we have a long way toward winnng the
battle against inflation."
But private economist Donald Straszheim said the gains were largely due
to the recession, which has sent unemployment rising to its highest level sin-
ce 1940.

counselors keep tabs on potential
Students involved in the program
have complained that the March 1
deadline for submitting names is too
late. "By that time, they (potential
students) have probably decided where
they're going to school," said
Engineering freshman Peter Ndenga,
himself an "Each one, reach one"
Ndenga said he wasn't aware he had
been actively recruited by the
program. "I came here because it's a
good school," he said.
But he added that he has taken ad-
vantage of student support groups he
learned 'about through "Each one,
reach one." Ndenga said that "without
the program, I couldn't have gotten in-
formation so easily," about groups like
the Opportunity Program, the Coalition
for the Use of Learning Skills, and
engineering college tutors.
LSA senior Valerie Bryant, who has
recruited students from her home town
of Covert, Mi., said she has talked to
students as young as sixth grade, but
focuses most of her attention on high
school juniors and seniors.
"I look for expressed desire,
academic success, and the student's
outside interests and studying habits,"
she said.
"As a whole, I don't see too much
being done on minority recruitment,"
Bryant said, again citing financial aid
as a major problem. "The University
isn't up to par."
