Students
lne up
for spots
In dorms
By KAREN TENSA
University residence halls began
eeping waiting lists yesterday for
tudents who are unhappy with their
present rooms and want to move.
Each dormitory has a list at its front
desk which current dorm residents may
sign. Students may sign as many lists
as they wish before they close
tomorrow, including the list at their
own dorm.
ON THURSDAY EACH building
rector will draw names to create a
riority list for moving into the dorm.
The number of spaces in a given
dorm will be determined by the number
of empty beds. Spaces that were never
assigned or belong to students who
never showed up will be available to
those on the waiting list.
The University has not determined
the number of vacant spaces yet, ac-
cording to Assistant Housing Infor-
mation Director Jo Rumsey. She said
that the empty spaces are scattered
,throughout the University residence
hall system.
ALTHOUGH figures were not
available yesterday for every dor-
mitory, all reported that students are
signing the waiting lists,. South Quad
and Mosher-Jordan showed more than
30 people on their lists after only one
day of sign-up.
The list compiled from Thursday's
lottery will be used to determine
iriority for moving into a dorm for the
rest of the term, Rumsey said.
Rumsey said people can begin
moving into their new rooms over the
weekend. Students who merely want to
swap rooms do not have to go through
the lottery, and some dorm residents
have already changed rooms.
SEVERAL* years ago, students'
priority for the empty spaces was
determined by the order in which they
signed the dorm lists. "It was
inhumane," Rumsey said. "People
would be in line for days. They'd skip
classes and meals and sleep in line."

P r esidential candi
1bring1s '84 bid to campus

By THOMAS MILLER
Just days after the approval of a 40
percent cut in the School of Education
budget, Vice President for Academic
Affairs and Provost Billy Frye yester-
day announced the worst phase of
University budget cutting is over.
Speaking to the faculty Senate
Assembly, Frye promised a new struc-
ture for future budget reviews and
predicted that "the worst (of the budget
cutting) is unquestionably past.
"THE OUTLOOK for the next several
years is optimistic," Frye said. "The
period of uncertainty is past."
Frye's announcement marks a new
phase in the University's "five-year
plan," implemented two years ago to
provide direction for reallocating the
University's resources.
Since the plan was officially announ-
ced in February of 1982, the schools of
art, natural resources, and education
have sustained severe reductions in
their budgets.
FRYE WARNED that, although he
has no immediate plans for further
major budget reviews, "that does not
rule out the possibility."
He said any future reviewswould be
structured differently to avoid some of
the controversy surrounding the
process so far.
"There is a great deal of room for im-
provement in the review process," Frye
said. "The strain on morale was
greater than imagined at the outset of
the plan."
FRYE BLAMED much of the
problem on the length of the reviews.
He said the time spent on the reviews,
which ranged in length from just under
a year to over 18 months, "was an un-
duly long time. The duration of the
reviews has accounted for 90 percent of
the problems."
He said any restructuring of the
process would be based on an increase
in communication between those in-

... says 'U' was strengthened

By NEIL CHASE
Colorado Sen. Gary Hart opened his Michigan campaign.
for the Democratic presidential nomination Sunday with a
sharp attack on the Reagan administration's Central
American policy.
Appearing before more than 400 people in the Michigan
Union's Pendleton Room, Hart said his solutions to the
problems in Central American came out of his recent tour of,
Honduras, Nicaragua, and El Salvador with Sen. William
Cohen (D-Maine).
"I RETURNED to this country with a clear sense that
(the Reagan administration) has the wrong policy for Central
America, because it has focused on the wrong enemy," said
Hart, who is a member of the Senate Armed Services Com-
mittee.
"The principal enemy is not communism. It is poverty," he
said.

To combat the poor living conditions in Central America,
Hart proposed establishing a "Peace Corps II" - a group of
Americans who would help to improve education and public
health in the region.
AT THE SAME time, Hart said his administration would
press diplomatic efforts to end the fighting and would push to
freeze U.S. military involvement in the area at its current
levels.
Hart charged that American dollars sent into Central
America are pocketed by Central American governments in-
stead of needy civilians.
In addition to sending American health and education
specialists, Hart called for a revival of a common market in
Central America, and a new international bank to help
establish small businesses to provide basic services to cities
and villages.

volved in the review and University
administrators.
Although Frye said the University is
in better shape than when the budget
reviews began, he stressed that
"guarded optimism" is necessary.
"WE'SHOULD not expect to return to
the growth levels of the fifties and six-
ties," he said. He cited several reasons
for his restraint:
* Although the economy is reboun-
ding, most experts feel it will not reach
1978 levels for some time, if ever;
* Michigan legislators have not, and
probably: will not, make education one
of their highest budget priorities, as in
the past;
* The declining number of college age
students will contribute to a declining
enrollment, making it more difficult to
maintain the University's high stan-

Lebanon:

Navy's

biggest action
since Vietnam

BEIRUT, Lebanon - U.S. naval guns
hammered away at Druse artillery
positions in Lebanon's central moun-
tains yesterday and for the first time a
U.S. spokesman said the firing was in
support of the Lebanese army's defense
of Souk el-Gharb. It was the biggest
U.S. naval action since the Vietnam
war.
"The naval gunfire support was con-
ducted on military targets threatening
the Lebanese armed forces defending
Souk el-Gharb," said U.S. Embassy
spokesman John Steward. "Successful
Lebanese armed forces defense of the
area is vital to the safety of U.S. per-
sonnel, including the U.S. multinational
forces, other U.S. military and the U.S.
diplomatic corps personnel. The naval
gunfire support missions are defensive
actions."
Although the statement called the
naval bombardment "defensive," it

marked a sharp escalation from the
initial American policy of going into ac-
tion only when artillery was directed at
Marine peacekeepers.
A State Department official in
Washington, who requested anonymity,
suggested that the loss of Souk el-Gharb
could spell a major defeat for American
policy and lead to a reassessment of
whether the Marine force should
remain in Lebanon.
The sharp U.S. escalation came as
the Lebanese government said its tiny
air force had attacked Syrian artillery
emplacements in northern Lebanon--
the second direct clash between their
forces in less than 24 hours.
The naval gunfire support from the
USS Virginia, an 11,000-ton nuclear-
powered guided missile cruiser, and the
USS John Rodgers, a 7,800-ton
destroyer, pounded mountain positions

W ALDO THE ALLIGATOR is getting a new

at 10 feet - or fierce, but because she's too friendly. "I hate
to see her go," said 86-year-old farmer Charlie Stevenson,
who had kept the beast in a pond on his farm. "She has been
my pet for 18 years," he said. "She is just one of the family.
She has a friendly disposition." Stevenson's wife said the
family feared the creature would walk up to a stranger or a
young child unaccustomed to seeing such a sight and scare

criticizing President Mohammed Aia Ul-Haq. Opposition
leaders said later all 400 of the dogs were clubbed or shot to
death on government orders. The edict to kill all stray dogs
came after anti-government protesters decorated the
animals with painted slogans and paper banners declaring
"Zia is a dog." The protesters released the animals in
Dadu, a small town near Islamabad, when Ul-Haq arrived
there during a political tour. The same group earlier had
released dozens of donkeys wearing banners which said
"Death to Zia," when the president was visiting the
