Reagan's mideast plan still alive

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - President Reagan
-has been personally assured by Jor-
dan's.King Hussein and Saudi Arabia's
King Fahd that his Mideast peace
initiative is still alive - despite the set-
back dealt by the Palestine Liberation
Organization, the administration said
"We are determined to go forward
with the Sept. 1 initiative," said John
Hughes, the State Department
spokesman. "King Hussein and King
Fahd share our resolve."
Hughes said Reagan had talked twice
by telephone with Hussein and once
with Fahd in the wake of Jordan's an-
nouncement Sunday that the PLO had
raised last-minute demands which tor-
pedoed the plan for Hussein to enter

peace talks with Israel on behalf of the
"THE PRESIDENT ... as a result
of those conversations, is confident that
the process is going forward," said
Hughes. "He is confident they have not
given up."
PLO chief Yasser Arafat and Jor-
dan's King Hussein were close to a final
agreement on Hussein entering the
peace talks when the Palestine
Liberation Organization made unac-
ceptable changes in their accord,
Secretary of State George Shultz said.
The changes, Shultz said in a CBS
"Morning News" interview yesterday,
"included the notion that the PLO had
to be at the bargaining table and they
were back to an independent
Palestinian state and those things that

people have talked about."
IT IS "necessary to have Palestinian
representation in the peace talks, but
not official members of the PLO,"
Shultz said.
"What happened was Mr. Arafat took
what he and King Hussein had agreed
on to a meeting of others in the PLO and
they put in some changes that are
unacceptable to King Hussein and the
president to (Saudi Arabia's) King
Fahd and others and would, I'm sure,
be an unacceptable basis for entering

the peace talks with Israel," Shultz
"Israel wouldn't sit down under
those circumstances and I don't blame
HUSSEIN BOWED out of the
negotiations Sunday with a blast at
Arafat, accusing him of reneging on
tentative agreements "in principle and
detail." Reagan blamed "radical
elements" in the PLO for the break-

The new representatives for
Rackham are: Bruce Belcher (IOU),

(IOU), Deborah J. Mahoney (ACT),
and Robert Paley (IOU).
Independent candidate Joel Mayer
was elected to the Board for Student
WHILE ROWLAND was optimistic
over the weekend about the election of
her IOU members to the student
government, Soglin said yesterday, "no
one expected that we would do that
"(Our success) will definitely make it
easier for MSA to voice their concerns
to the administration," he said.
With the membership of several
students currently involved in fighting
the redirection process, the new
assembly "will be able to make a real
good effort as far as lobbying the ad-
ministration, organizing, and educating
the students," Soglin said.
This summer MSA will organize a
committee of faculty and students to

seek alternatives to the redirection
process. Soglin said the assembly is
particularly interested in the energy
conservation proposal made at last
months redirection forum.
PROF. BUNYAN Bryant of the
School of Natural Resources suggested
that the administration institute energy
conservation measures to generate
enough money to offset planned budget
At a special meeting with MSA Sun-
day night, University President Harold
Shapiro said that the administration
currently is looking into the energy
conservation measure.
Although Shapiro said at Sunday's
meeting that he is dissatisfied with the
redirection process and that reviews of
schools for large budget cuts may end
with the Schools of Art, Education, and
Natural Resources. Soglin said he is
ready to unite students from all of the
schools on campus in protest.
HE AND Rowland plan to meet with
leaders from the various college gover-
nements on redirection before the end
of this term.
In addition to redirection, minority
affairs will receive a great deal of
MSA's attention, Soglin said.
MSA members on campus during the
summer will be looking for a
replacement for the black researcher
hired last fall by MSA.
THAT researcher, if hired on in the
summer, would direct his or her efforts
toward adjustment problems facing
black freshmen. "That way we know
how to help them in the fall," Soglin
Next year's MSA will initiate a
minority recruitment program in-
volving University students and alum-
ni. According to Soglin, "the recruit-
ment. that is going on now is not direc-
ted to many inner city schools;" He ad-
ded that only a few schools such as Cass
Tech and Renaissance High pre
targeted by recruitment officers.
Therefore, MSA's committee will
target the University students who
graduated from the schools that send
fewer students to campus and en-
courage them to recruit via MSA-
organized school visits.
Shapiro told the assembly that the
University along with Michigan State,
Wayne State, and the University of
Detroit, are involved in recruitment
programs at inner-city schools, but of-
ten the officials of those secondary
schools are not receptive to University
A discussion on improving minority
enrollment is scheduled for the May or
June Regents meeting, Shapiro said.

Nazi bomb defused in London
LONDON - A Falklands war veteran yesterday defused a ticking
Luftwaffe bomb, scooped from the muddy bottom of the Thames River, in a
delicate operation that left commuters jammed in traffic for hours.
Maj. John Quin, of the Royal Engineers, drilled into the barnacle-encrusted
bomb which, the explosives expert said, was probably dropped during the
1940-41German air attack on London.
Quin spent six months last year in the Falkland Islands defusing hundreds
of landmines and World War II-vintage bombs left by Argentines defeated in
the 74-day-war with Britain.
Crews were using a mechanical dredge Sunday night to scoop mud from
the river and put the debris on a barge outside the South Bank arts complex,
which includes the Royal Festival Hall and the Natonal Theater.
"The chances of the bomb detonating were very small, but if it had, people
would have been in danger for a 1,000-yard radius from steel splinters," Quin
Few changes in new MX plan
WASHINGTON - After struggling for months to find a politically
acceptable basing system for the MX missile, a special commission recom-
mended to President Reagan yesterday a plan virtually identical to one
already discarded by Congress.
Plying down Reagan's earlier warnings about U.S. missiles being
vulnerable to Soviet attack, the panel unanimously proposed building 100
MX weapons, each armed with 10 nuclear warheads, and putting them in
launch silos now holding Minuteman missiles in Wyoming and Nebraska.
Accompanying that warmed-over proposal was the commission's one new
idea: developing a smaller, single-warhead missile for deployment in the
early 1990s. The group said that could be a cornerstone for a new approach to
arms control.
Aides said Reagan likely will embrace the recommendations next week,
once Congress has finished battling over a nucler weapons freeze and the
disputed nomination of Kenneth Adelman to head the Arms Control and
Disarmament Agency.
Canada to try bringing Amway
officials to court for fraud
GRAND RAPIDS -- Canadian officials have nearly completed
preparations for what could be a protracted battle to haul the founders and
two vice presidents of the Amway Corp. into court to face fraud charges, it
was reported yesterday.
"A massive" stack of documents have been compiled to support chargers
filed against Amway President Richard DeVos, Chairman Jay Van Andel
and Vice Presidents C. Dale Discher and William Halliday for allegedly con-
spiring to defraud the Canadian government of at least $23 million in U.S.
currency in duties between 1965 and 1980.
The documents will soon be filed with U.S. officials as part of an attempt to
bring the four - who have resisted extradition - to face charges in a
Canadian court, the Grand Rapids Press reported in yesterday's edition.
"The extradition materials will be filed relatively soon. We're not talking
months by any means," the Press reported, quoting a Canadian source said
to be familiar with the case..
Bill aims for public financing
of congressional elections
WASHINGTON - Nearly a decade after the public started paying for
presidential election campaigns with a dollar checkoff on their income tax
returns, a group of House members said yesterday it's time for the next
step: public financing of congressional races.
"This bill is aimed at the politics of intimidation which exists in virtually
every vote on the House floor in which someone has a financial interest,"
Rep. David Obey (D-Wis.) said at a news conference announcing a proposed
Clean Campaign Act of 1983.
Obey and a bipartisan group of more than 5 House members are in-
troducing the measure to counter what they said is a rapid growth of influen-
ce by special interest.groups on Congress. 1%
Their bill would include incentives for candidates to limit the amount of
money they accept from political action committees and the amounts that
wealthy office seekers give to their own campaigns.
"We believe this will preserve the floor of the House as the people's arena
in the political system of this country," Obey said. "That, above all playing
fields, is supposed to be on the level."
Obey said there was no estimate of how much it would cost to extend public
financing to House campaigns, but that he belived the dollar checkoff on tax
forms would not have to be changed.
"I used to think we couldn't afford it," Rep. Dan Glickman (D-Kan.), said.
"Now I think we can't afford not to have it."
Dixie rivers begin to recede
NEW ORLEANS - High water from rain-swollen rivers that deluged the
South the past wek began to recede yesterday but remained high enough to
require beefing up of sandbagging.
Additional rain was expected to blow in from the Gulf of Mexico tomorrow.
Six people died in Mississippi, four in Louisiana and two in Tennessee
during last weeks flash flooding. The downpour forced more than 30,000
people to flee from their homes and affected more than 100,000 residents.

The Pearl River, which crested at almost twice its flood stage Sunday,
drenched homes in southeast Louisiana and southwest Mississippi, forcing
3,500 residents to abandon their homes in the hard-hit Slidell, La., area.
State officials estimated flood damage had reached $400 million in
Mississippi and Louisiana, and the toll was expected to go higher. Federal
inspection teams Monday began surveying the widespread flood damage.
