Rostow out in major
Reagan team shake-up
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - Eugene Rostow,
director of the embattled U.S. Aris
Control and Disarmament Agency,
resigned yesterday under pressure
from the White House and a small
group of conservative Republican
Congressional sources said President
Reagan would nominate Kenneth
Adelman, deputy to U.N. ambassador
Jeanne Kirkpatrick, to take Rostow's
rThere was no immediate comment
from the White House.
ROSTOW, 69, a veteran of
Washington power struggles, issued a
sharply worded statement that implied
Reagan had forced his ouster. In it,
Rostow said "in recent days it has
become clear that the president wished
to make changes."
The resignation, third by a major
administration official in two weeks,
came amid mounting confusion about
Reagan's objectives in ongoing arms
control negotiations with the Soviet
Union and sometimes conflicting stan-
ds by Rostow and other principal of-

member of the Budget Priorities Com-
mittee, said cuts above that level were
"unrealistic" and probably would not
be considered by the committee..
A REDUCTION OF 15 percent would
require some drastic cost-cutting
measures, including possible layoffs of
tenured faculty, Bayliss said. Attempts
to lay off tenured faculty at other
universities around the country have
resulted in long, complex lawsuits.
The report, however, maintains the
school could absorb a 15 percent cut
without firing tenured professors.
Gordon said a "fair" number of art
school professors were expected to
retire over the next several years. If
enough retire, Gordon said, it may
make layoffs unnecessary.
GIVEN A 15 percent cut, the school
would probably have to eliminate
several fields of study, in addition to
firing professors, Bayliss said. The
faculty would decide which areas would
be cut first, he said.
But eliminating certain fields of
study would be difficult because unlike
most other schools on campus, the art
school is not divided into departments
and programs, Bayliss said.
"We are not divisible," he said. "If
(the school) were divided into parts,
then it would be easier to think in those
terms of reduction, but we're not."
A 15 PERCENT cut also could cripple
the school's ability to solicit gifts from
its alumni and other outsiders, Bayliss
said. "Alumni are looking for symbols
of support for the school.,
"The (art school) building is like that
and it has built spirit among our alum-
ni," he said. "We. would have trouble
... Reagan wanted changes
his interference in decisions outside the
sphere of arms control.
At the same time, one of Rostow's top
negotiators, Richard Starr, also was
stepping down, according to the
congressional sources, who asked not to
be named. Starr, based in Vienna, was
in charge of negotiations to reduce
NATO and Warsaw Pact ground forces
He was summoned home in recent
days amid reports that he would be
disciplined for making unauthorized
public statements about the progress of
may be cut
(raising money). I think the alumni
would look at (a cut) as a distinct
disadvantage to the school."
Gordon, however, claimed alumni
would respond to the school's crisis by
donating more money. "It seems that
the hard times of education have been
responded to by alumni, it won't han-
dicap them much,"he said.
To absorb a 10 or 15 percent cut, the
panel suggested increasing the number
of class hours taught by teaching
assistants and expanding its visiting
professor program to replace part of a
THE PANEL recommended that
studio courses be taught by professors
for only half of the class time. A
teaching assistant would take over the
class after the professor left.
This would double teaching time for
TAs, while faculty would be spending
half as much time in the studio. Curren-
tly, only about half of the school's 26
graduate students are teaching
But Bayliss said the unique nature of
the school made it impractical to have
TAs teaching studio classes. "Our
basic courses are not the same basic
courses as in LSA. We feel beginning
courses are the toughest classes to
teach and we have always tried to have
senior faculty teaching them," he said.
Expanding the art school's visiting
professor program was one area in
which Bayliss and the review commit-
tee agreed. "We should have visitors so
our students have exposure to a con-
tinuing stream of new faces and new
ideas," he said.
IF THE Budget Priorities Committee
accepts the report, it will make a final
recommendation to Vice President for
Academic Affairs Billy Frye. Frye will
then meet with other University ad-
ministrators to make a decision on the
Both Frye and President Harold
Shapiro declined to comment on the
report, saying they hadn't had a chance
to review it carefully.
woman in week for cabinet post
WASHINGTON - President Reagan yesterday nominated former Rep.
Margaret Heckler to the secretary of health and human services - the third
woman with Cabinet rank in his administration - after Richard Schweiker
resigned to head a lobbyist group.
Mrs. Heckler, who was defeated in a bid for a ninth congressional term
from Massachusetts last November, described the new job as "the hardest
assignment in Washington."~
"You have offered me the greatest challenge of my life," she said to the
president in a White House ceremony also attended by Schweiker, the fourth
member of Reagan's original Cabinet to resign.
Mrs. Heckler, 51, is the second woman named to the Cabinet in a week,
following Reagan's choice of Elizabeth Hanford Dole to head the Transpor-
tation Department. Jeane Kirkpatrick holds a Cabinet-level post as delegate
to the United Nations.
Reagan ups pressure on Israel
TEL AVIV, Israel - President Reagan was reported stepping up pressure
on Israel yesterday to break the impasse in the Lebanese negotiations, and
some accounts said he was considering postponing Prime Minister
Menachem Begin's visit to Washington.
Presidential envoy Philip Habib met yesterday with the U.S. negotiating
team in Jerusalem. Israeli news reports said he carried a message from
Reagan demanding that negotiations be speeded up.
The reports quoted unidentified American sources in Washington as
saying Begin's plans to visit Reagan may be postponed if there is no
progress on solving the Lebanon crisis. Begin's spokesman denied the
reports. There was no comment from U.S. officials.
El Salvador president says
military crisis is over
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador - President Alvaro Magana announced an
abrupt end yesterday to El Salvador's military crisis, shortly after
rebellious army commander Col Sigifredo Ochoa Perez flew to the capital to
see his injured wife.
Magana said Ochoa's mutiny was over and the officer had abandoned his
post as ordered.
There was no immediate word from Ochoa, whose six-day mutiny
threatened to deeply split the armed forces in this civil war-torn nation. The
popular commander of some 1,000 troops in Cabanas province rebelled last
Thursday night when Defense Minister Gen. Jose Guillermo Garcia ordered
his transfer to'Uruguay as a military attache at the Salvadoran embassy.
Magna told a news conference the order for Ochoa to abandon his post had
been carried out "because Ochoa is no longer in Cabanas," a province 5
miles norltheast of San Salvador.
But he said Ochoa would not go to Uruguay, "for reasons independent of
this problem." He said Ochoa was not under arrest, but did not say where
Reporter expelled from Poland
WARSAW, Poland - The Polish government has ordered the expulsion of
United Press International correspondent Ruth Gruber, who was detained
questioned fob 23 hours before her release yesterday evening.
The official news agency PAP carried a report of the expulsion order,
saying it was connected with alleged collection of information on Polish
Miss Gruber, 33, who denied an involvement in espionage, said the PAP
report was the first official word she had of the expulsion.
The correspondent's Polish secretary was picked up Tuesday and was still
detained yesterday night, according to Polish television.
Speaking to reporters after her release but before the expulsion order,
Miss Gruber described her detention as a "nightmare." She said she was
questioned for seven or eight hours Tuesday evening and yesterday morning
about a set of photographs allegedly addressed to her and including pictures
of military installations. She said she had denied any knowledge of the film
or its origin.
Economy brings poor
Christmas selling season
WASHINGTON - U.S. retail sales dropped 0.4 percent last month in a
lackluster Christmas selling season, the government said yesterday. And a
separate survey showed that executives, still uncertain about economic
recovery, are planning to cut back spending on expansion and modernization
for a second straight year.
The sales decline from November was clearly due to the expected
slackening in car sales after November's robust performance.
Overall sales are expected to rise at a moderate pace in coming months,
helping, though hardly leading, the expected economic recovery.
However, if business executives hold capital spending to the levels in-
dicated in the separate Commerce Department survey, it will mean such,
spending will provide little, if any, help in pulling the nation out of the long
Commerce's sales report said overall retail sales dropped to a seasonally
adjusted $92.3 billion in December after surging upward by 2.6 percent in
November. The figures were adjusted to discount the fact that sales always
shoot up during the Christmas season.
. However, both November and December actually would have shown
moderate gains - 0.4 percent and 0.5 percent - if volatile auto sales were ex-
cluded. Analysts said special car-financing deals led to the big November
increase, and December's figures looked bad only by comparison.
