Calif. earth tremors
may signal volcano




continuing string of small earthquakes
may signal volcanic activity in the
rugged mountains around this high-
country ski resort, a geologist who
studies volcanoes said yesterday.
But Dan Miller and other scientists
stressed at a news conference that no
one is yet predicting an eruption in this
community along the eastern slopes of
the Sierra Nevada, across the moun-
tains from Yosemite National Park.
Small quakes continued to jolt the
region 200 miles east of San Francisco
and 250 miles north of Los Angeles for
the third straight day yesterday.
Tom Burdette, a seismologist with
the U.S. Geological Survey, said the
earth would probably give a warning
before the situation becomes
: dangerous, but added "this may be
that warning period."

"At Mount St. Helen we got so we
could tell what's going to happen and
we think we can monitor this thing,
too," Burdette said.,
An old volcanic crater, the remains of
a stupendous eruption 700,000 years
ago, lies five miles below the earth's
surface. It rose 10 inches between 1975
and 1980 most significantly after four
earthquakes hit the area in May 1980.
Interest in the volcano grew Thur-
sday when a series of tremors, the most
significant measuring 5.5 and 5.6 on the
Richter scale, rocked the area, a
popular high Sierra ski resort 180 miles
east of San Francisco.
No injuries were reported, but the
quakes collapsed a snow-covered air-
plane hangar - crushing the twin-engine
plane inside - shook groceries on
shelves, and triggered power outages.
Since then, the magnitude of the
tremors dropped dramatically.

And save with these special

Draft registration draws
fire from Gray Panthers

(Continued from Page 1)
The Gray Panthers expressed concern
at the meeting upon hearing about
recent actions by the Ann Arbor Pubic
Library. The library has refused to in-
clude information about CARD on a list
of resource guides for young adults
because the organization used 'anti' in
its title.
Roth and other CARD members say
they consider this action to be as
ridiculous as refusing to list an anti-
slavery group.
ONE STUDENT at the meeting, a
Residential College senior, and non-
registrators who requested anonymity,
expressed his opposition to
registration. "I am not a pacifist but
I can't register knowing the gover-
nment as it is now. I don't trust it.
Although I do apreciate being a mem-

ber of this society, I think I can make
the country better by refusing to
register," he said.
He added that he had received a let-
ter in November after failing to register
in July of 1980. The letter was sent to
his home and specifically stated that
failing to register could result in a five-
year prison sentence and $10,000 fine if
A twenty-one-year-old LSA senior at
the meeting who also had not registered
said non-registration is "a way to expr-
ess your disagreement with the overall
military attitude of government.
He objected to registration on several
levels and said 'As an American citizen
I have a responsibility to resist unjust
laws - that resistance is a patriotic
act." Right now, "government is not
giving access to all of the facts" about
military service and the registration
process is part of this unclear picture of
military policy, he claimed.

Opposition leaders call
for Gandhi's resignation
NEW DELHI, India- Opponents of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi asked
for her resignation yesterday, saying her party's election losses in two key
states showed she no longer had the trust of the nation.
"A nationwide pattern has emerged, amounting to a total rejection of her
personal style," said former Foreign Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee, leader
of the Bharatiya Janata Party which helped oust Gandhi from power in 1977.
"In all fairness, the situation demands that Mrs. Gandhi must im-
mediately resign from her prime ministership or seek a fresh mandate."
In legislative assembly elections held Wednesday, Gandhi's Congress Par-
ty lost both Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka states for the first time since In-
dia achieved independence from Britain in 1947.
Vajpayee pointed out that with the two latest losses the Congress Party
had failed to win a majority in all eight states where elections were held sin-
ce Gandhi returned to power in 1980.
Reagan may consider tax hike
WASHINGTON- President Reagan, who objects to raising taxes in the
current economic slump, is considering post-1984 tax boosts to reduce huge,
growing deficits projected through 1988, administration officials said.
The officials said Reagan also is pondering a spending freeze on some
domestic programs and modest cuts in military spending to keep the deficit
for fiscal 1984 below $200 billion.
But the president appears to be holding firm against seeking significant
new taxes for the budget year that starts next Oct. 1.
The officials, who discussed the status of the administration's budget
planning on the condition that they not be identified, emphasized that
Reagan has made no final decisions and is unlikely to do so until late in the
coming week. The president has until Jan. 31 to submit his fiscal 1984 budget
proposals to Congress.
Tax-raising proposals being considered for the years following 1984 in-
clude a narrowing of tax deductions, such as for credit card interest charges
and mortgage interest on second homes, and taxes on energy consumption.
Grenade hurts 12 in Israel
TEL AVIV, Israel- A hand grenade was thrown at a passenger bus in the
center of Tel Aviv yesterday evening, wounding 12 people, police said.
No group claimed responsibility, but Israel's state television said
Palestinian guerrillas launched the attack.
Though police reported only one grenade, television reports said two
grenades were hurled. It said one exploded harmlessly on the street, while
the second landed inside the bus, blowing up near the driver.
The report said the grenades were thrown from the second floor of an
abandoned building. The bus driver, Amnon Damti, said he thought he saw
two youths throwing stones at the bus.
Israel Radio said the grenades were the same kind as those used by
Palestinian guerrillas.
Ambulances and police rushed to the scene with wailing sirens: The first
casualties were evacuated to hospitals in cars that happened to pass by,
Soviet economy unlikely
to collapse, CIA says
WASHINGTON- The Central Intelligence Agency does not consider an
economic collapse of the Soviet Union "even a remote possibility," a senior
CIA official said in declassified testimony released yesterday.
The judgment by Henry Rowen, chairman of the spy agency's National In-
telligence Council, was less harsh than those about the Soviet economy by
President Reagan and other administration officials, but Rowen also defen-
ded the administration view that the Soviet economy is "deteriorating."
He said in testimony Dec. 1 before a subcommitteeof Congress' Joint
Economic Committee that Soviet economic growth has "slowed markedly"
in recent years, forcing harder choices by the Kremlin leadership on how to
allocate money for military and civilian uses.
He concluded, however, that signs of Soviet economic weakness do not
mean the country's economy is losing its "dynamism."
In releasing a declassified version of Rowen's testimony, Sen. William
Proxmire (D-Wis.), vice chairman of the subcommittee on international
trade, finance and security economics, stressed aspects of the CIA
assessment pointing to basic strengths of the Soviet economy.
"One of the worst things we can do is to underestimate the economic
strength of our principal adversary," Proxmire said. He contended that "the
Soviet Union is perhaps the most self-reliant industrialized nation."
Volcano erupts in Hawaii
HONOLULU- Kilauea volcano erupted with a brilliant aerial lava show
yesterday and then sputtered out, allowing evacuated residents to return to
their mountainside homes.
Two active vents about 600 feet long sent curtains of lava shooting 75 feet
high and started flows of molten rock creeping down the mountain toward
the Kalapana area. The river of lava began cooling when the eruption ended.
Hawaii Civil Defense spokesman Bruce Butts said all roadblocks into the
area had been lifted and residents of the mountainside subdivision
threatened by the lava flows were being allowed to go home. Police said

earlier 85 to 90 people had left.
Butts said a Red Cross shelter would remain open in the nearby area of
"They can go back home, but we are still maintaining a Red Cross shelter
should people want to stay out of the area," Butts said.
