EXPRESSING enthusiasm about the
appointment, Meiland said "I'm
delighted to help the college this way."
He said that one of his reasons for
taking the job was "the challenge of the
position." He added that it was more

Reagan asks boost in
aid to El Salvador
sponsored by the
Graduate Student Senate
Bowling Green State University
At St. Thomas Moore
From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - President Reagan,
setting the stage for a fierce battle in
Congress, requested $110 million in in-
creased military aid yesterday for El
Salvador and suggested he will send in
more U.S. advisers if the money is not
approved in full.
Reagan said leftist guerrillas have
seized the initiative in the embattled
Central American nation after three
years of civil war.
"CENTRAL AMERICA is simply too
close and the strategic stakes are too
high for us to ignore the danger of
governments seizing power there with
ideological and military ties to the
Soviety Union," Reagan said in a major
foreign policy address to the National
Association of Manufacturers.

The businessmen applauded only
twice during the long speech.
In addition to seeking more money
for El Salvador, Reagan proposed in-
creasing military aid by a total of $20
million for Honduras, Costa Rica and
Panama Canal security - bringing the
total request for this year to $39 million.
HE ALSO sought $168 million in ad-
ditional economic assistance for El
Salvador, Costa Rica, Honduras and
Reagan said a guerrilla victory in El
Salvador would spread revolution to
Guatemala, Honduras and Costa Rica
and increase the threat to Panama, the
canal and Mexico.
Ultimately at stake, he said, is the
security of the United States.
While pledging not to send U.S. forces
into combat, Reagan said "the number
of U.S. trainers in El Salvador will
depend upon the resources available"
A SENIOR administration official,
speaking on condition he not be named,
explained that it costs 10 times more to
train Salvadoran units in the United
States than in their own country.
He said that if Congress cuts the
requested funds, the training would
require sending more U.S. advisers
Currently, the administration has a
self-imposed ceiling of 55 on the number
THE $110 million in increased funds
for El Salvador would be in addition to
$26 million already approved.
"How bad is the military situation? It
is not good," he said. "For the moment,
at least, (the guerrillas) have taken the
tactical initiative just when the sharply
limited funding Congress has so far ap-
proved is running out."
The president warned without U.S.
assistance the nations of Central
America and the Caribbean could fall
victim to the "domino theory," once
used as the rationale for sending U.S.
troops to fight in Vietnam.
ON CAPITOL HILL, Speaker
Thomas O'Neill said Reagan's request
was in trouble. "I don't see the votes
around here at the present
time .. . He's going to have to do a lot
of selling," the speaker said.
Reagan's request likely will provide
the focus for a debate over the U.S. role
in El Salvador and demands that U.S.
aid be contingent on the Salvadoran
government seeking a negotiated end to
Sen. Dan Quayle (R-Ind.), a member
of the Senate Armed Forces Commit-
tee, said Reagan "will probably get
most of what he asks for" but Congress
might add conditions opposing U.S.
combat troops, calling for improved
respect for human rights and "maybe a
certification requirement on how the
aid is used."
Senate Foreign Relations Committee
member Alan Cranston (D-Calif.) said
Reagan appears to be repeating steps
that led to the Vietnam War.

Bar patrons cheer on rape
NEW BEDFORD, Mass. - A young woman who went into a blue-collar
bar to buy a pack of cigarettes was repeatedly raped by four men on a pool
table while other patrons cheered, police say.
Even though the bar was voluntarily closed Wednesday, the switchboard
at the New Bedford police station was jammed with calls from outraged
A group formed to protest the rape and other "sexist violence" announced
it would hold a candlelight march to City Hall on Monday night.
"Closing that bar, unfortunately, is not going to stop rapes in New Bed-
ford," Rita Moniz, a leader of the group, said yesterday. "We weren't
protesting that particular bar as much as we're showing our outrage."
The rape occurred Sunday night at Big Dan's, a tavern in a blue-collar
neighborhood of this southeastern Massachusetts city.
OPEC on verge of agreement
LONDON - Saudi Arabian Oil Minister Sheikh Rhmed Zaki Yamani said
yesterday OPEC was on the threshold of an agreement to cut oil prices in an
11th-hour bid to avert a full-blown pricing war.
Asked if an accord was near on reducing the cartel's 134-a-barrel base oil
price, Yamani said: "I think we have one."
But on the eighth day of fierce bargaining, OPEC's 13 ministers were
careful to avoid saying there was a full or formal agreement on a pricing and
productionpackage to prevent a world oil price crash.
"We had a general understanding on price, but we need to finalize the
problem on (production) quotas," said Venezuelan Oil Minister Humberto
Sourcesclose to the talks said the bitterly divided Organization of
Petroleum Exporting Countries appeared ready to drop its base price by $5
to $29 a barrel. Each $1-a-barrel decline in world oil prices theoretically
translates into a savings of 2.3 cents a gallon for the motorist and home-
heating oil user.
Kremlin expels U.S. diplomat
MOSCOW - The Kremlin ordered the expulsion of a U.S. diplomat yester-
day and charged he was caught "red handed" in Moscow with radio equip-
ment used for spying.
The U.S. Embassy confirmed that Richard Osborne, a first secretary in
the economic section, had been declared persona non grata by the Soviet
government and was making preparations to leave the country with his wife
and two young daughters. His departure date was not known.
The KGB said Osborne was taken into custody briefly on Monday while he
was working with a radio capable of relaying secret messages via U.S.
Osborne also had with him "Handwritten notes" on"'paper that dissolves
quickly in water," the KGB said in a statement published by the government
newspaper Izvestia and the official Tass news agency.
Embassy spokesman Frank Tonini said he had "no comment" on the sub-
stance of the Soviet allegations against Osborne, and the diplomat was not
available for comment. In Washington, White House spokesman Larry
Speakes declined comment.
Palestinian protests continue
against Carter's Mideast visit
Israeli soldiers on the occupied West Bank fired tear gas at Palestinian
students and closed down schools in four towns yesterday, the second day of
protests against former President Jimmy Carter's visit.
Palestinians on the occupied Gaza strip and six towns on the West Bank
burned tires and threw stones at Israelis, the Israel Radio said. Israeli
citizens fired over the heads of rock throwers in Dura,west of Hebron, the
Rashad Shawaa, the deposed mayor of Israeli-occupied Gaza, told Carter
the two-days of Palestinian protests against his visit are an expression of
"Dissatisfaction" by an "oppressed" people.
"Good wishes will not get us anywhere," Shawaa told Carter. "With good
wishes we are deteriorating every day." Shawaa was dismissed as mayor by
Israel last July for supporting the Palestine Liberation Organization.
Reagan's chief economist
warns against over optimism
WASHINGTON - President Reagan's chief economist yesterday warned
that "unwarrented euphoria" over the economy's apparently robust
January performance could be setting people up for a shock when February
numbers don't measure up.
"Now there is a danger of a psychological flip-flop," with premature
celebrations turning into equally unjustified gloom, said Martin Feldstein,
chairman of the president's Council of Economic Advisers.
As Feldstein spoke, the government released figures for February
showing a drop in first-time unemployment claims and a better picture for
business expansion, but generally economic statistics for last month are ex-
pected to be less encouraging than January's.
The true state of the economy, Feldstein said, probably lies somewhere
between the two months' figures: a revival under way but only a moderate
Most private analysts have indeed been raising their 1983 forecasts in light
of January statistics. So has Feldstein.
And the president, referring without qualification to "this hard-earned but
inflation-free recovery," said in a speech yesterday that "the signs of
recovery are springing up all around us."
