Governments around the world made
elaborate preparations yesterday for
the fiery fall of nuclear junk from a
crippled Soviet spy satellite, putting
troops, jets, ships and airborn
radioactivity-detection teams on alert.
Some earthlings panicked. Others
chuckled or yawned.
THE KREMLIN said the main rem-
nant of the crippled Cosmos 1402 will
blaze into the Earth's atmosphere Sun-
day evening, probably plunging into or
near the Arabian Sea.
Oman, the United Arab Emirates and
Marxist South Yemen alerted naval
ships; air force jets and army units to
be on the lookout, Arab diplomatic
sources in Bahrain said.
The sources said the Soviets, who
maintain a sizable military presence in
South Yemen, were expected to send
ships and reconnaissance jets into the
area of the Arabian Sea to keep watch.
A Beirut newspaper featured a cartoon
showing a bandaged man representing
war-torn Lebanon carrying a report on
the Cosmos and pointing to a passing
satellite saying: "That's all we
THE SOVIETS have said most of the
radioactive debris will burn up in the
upper atmosphere, claimed the danger
from any remaining fragments will not
exceed internationally accepted limits,
and mocked those who doubted it.

Washington and NATO" of
exaggerating the danger to "cover up
their own aggressive preparations"

The Pentagon said there was still a
chance the satellite's main section
would spew radioactive debris on the
Earth, and it put emergency teams of
U.S. nuclear experts on alert to rush

They will be transported in three Air
Force C-141 cargo planes loaded with
sophisticated gear to retrieve radioac-
tive material that might survive the
fiery re-entry and hit land.

Indiana rally crushes
'M' cagers, 93-76
By LARRY MISHKIN
Special to the Daily
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - There was
good news and bad news yesterday for
the Michigan Wolverines.
The bad news is that the second-
ranked Indiana Hoosiers blew
Michigan right off the court in their
decisive, 93-76, victory before 17,231
spectators at Assembly Hall. The lossj
extended the Wolverines futility streak1
in the building to 12 years.
THE GOOD NEWS is that
Michigan (now 2-4 in conference play
and 11-5 overall) doesn't have to play in
Bloomington again for another year.
A 27-6 outburst by Indiana (4-1,,14-1)j
in the first seven minutes of the second
half wiped out any faint dreams of up-
set that Michigan may have enter-1
tained and forced the Wolverines to
concentrate solely on keeping the score
"Indiana is a fine team," said
Michigan coach Bill Frieder in an ob-
vious understatement. "I think they
haven't played much better than that
10-minute stretch (the start of the
second half). We helped them by not
slowing it down and not taking our

In recognition of the tenth anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision, legalizing abortion, pro-choice and anti-abortion
groups rallied on the Diag. Above: Anti-abortionists bow their heads in a moment of silent prayer. While pro-choice

'Local groups vocal on abortion
By HALLE CZECHOWSKI
A rally organized to criticize the
Supreme Court's 10-year-old Roe vs.
Wade decision legalizing abortion
yesterday turned into a chanting match
between opposing groups on the Diag.
Nearly 65 people showed up to voice
their opinion on the controversial
ruling. Anti-abortion advocates who
originally scheduled the rally, far out-
numbered a vocal pro-choice group
which gathered to counter the original
"GAYS, STRAIGHTS, blacks; whites
- we defend abortion rights," chanted
the group as pro-life demonstrators
listened to speeches and prayed.
About 45 minutes into the rally, 38 of
the anti-abortion demonstrators mar-
ched to the Planned Parenthood
Federation clinic a few miles away to
continue their rally.
Although anti-abortion groups
demonstrate in front of the clinic every
Saturday, a guard was posted on the
front steps yesterday with a tape recor-
der and a camera. Planned Parenthood
spokesperson Karen Takasawa said the
recording was being made to keep a
record of the demonstration's noise
level in case of problems.
THE ORIGINAL rally was organized
by a coalition of religious and anti-abor-
tion groups called Psalm 31:1-18.
Leaders of Maranatha, a national
religious organization, said about one-
third of the demonstrators were mem-
bers of their group.
Leaders of the Revolutionary
Workers League said they organized
the pro-choice counter-rally but many
of the students participating said they
had heard about the anti-abortion
demonstration and had come hoping to
join in any opposition.
"I was really hoping for a heated

Abortion foes donned black armbands
and held a mock funeral yesterday on
the 10th anniversary of the Supreme
Court decision legalizing abortion,
while advocates of abortion rights held
their own rallies celebrating "10 years
of reproductive freedom."
The day was marked by rallies and
marches, receptions and prayer
meetings in cities from Washington to
Los Angeles as both sides used the day
to get their messages across.
"The pro-life people have had it with
10 years of killing babies. . . This is a
dastardly thing that is going on,"Nellie
Gray, president of the national "March
for Life" organization, said at a
Washington press conference.

DETERMINED TO tackle students' grim economic
outlook, the Michigan Student Assembly is looking for
volunteers for a financial aid committee. The group's goal
is to coordinate student lobbyists for financial aid at the
state and possibly the national level while building a
student-run financial aid program at the University. The
committee will look into a computer system to match
University students with unclaimed scholarships and loans,
and a fund-raising and disbursement program to generate
