Judge's
decision
favors 'U'
registration
resister
By GLEN YOUNG
A University graduate student indic-
ted for failing to register for the draft
won ,a partial victory from a Detroit
federal district court judge in Detroit
yesterday.
U.S District Court Judge Phillip Pratt
ruled that the federal government must
turn over 25 documents in the case of
Daniel Rutt, whose attorneys say the
papers will support their claim that
Rutt is a victim of selective prosecution
by the government.
DEFENSE attorney James Lafferty
said yesterday he had not seen the
Judge's decision, but that the clerk in
Pratt's office had informed him of it.
Thus far, the government has refused
to release the documents, claiming
executive privilege.
In a similar case in California last
year, charges against another

Financial aid wars
' Congress hammering out student aid levels

WASHINGTON (UPI) - President
Reagan announced yesterday he will
nominate William clark, his national
security adviser and a longtime aide, to
succeed the controversial James Watt
as secretary of the interior.
Reagan made the surprise announ-
cement at the conclusion of an ap-
pearance before a group of evangelical
Christain women.
"HE IS a God-fearing Westerner,
fourth-generation rancher and a person
I trust," Reagan said in springing the
announcement. "And I think he will be
a great secretary of the interior.',
Reagan said Clark was selected from
"more than two dozen" candidates. His
chief spokesman, Larry Speakes, said
28 names, including those of women,
blacks and Hispanics, had been "under
active consideration" by Reagan aides.
In the end, however, Reagan turned
to a trusted associate a friend and
political ally who served on his staff
when he was governor of California and
was plucked from the California
Supreme Court by Reagan to become
deputy secretary of state in 1981.
THE FIRST reaction to his appoin-
tment was - again - critical. Carl

Pope, political director of one of the
country's most powerful environmental
organizations, the Sierra Club, said in
San Franscisco, "We're dumbfounded.
Mr. Clark has no visible record on en-
vironmental issues. I've spoken to
people who were involved in those
issues in Sacramento when Ronald
Reagan was governor and Clark neer
showed any interest in those affairs."
Clark, 51, served as chief of staff to
Reagan in California and transfered
from the State Department to his White
House post in February 1982. He
replaced Richard Allen.
Reagan said he was nominating
Clark "whith a good deal of pleasure"
and paid a final tribute to Watt, who
announced his resignation Sunday in a
swirl pf controversy.
"May I just tell you - I think he is
succeeding a very fine secretary of the
interior," Reagan said.
WATT resigned under intense
pressure from Republicans who feared
he was a political liability to the party
and the president. They were outraged
by his flip remark before a business
group describing the ethnic and

Future funding levels for University financial aid
hang on a precarious compromise being hammered
out between the U.S. House and Senate, University
officials said yesterday.
Thomas Butts, the University's lobbyist in
Washington, and University Financial Aid Director
Harvey Grotrian say they are keeping a close eye on
the progress of a compromise plan to be released
early next week which would combine elements of the
opposing financial aid budgets approved by the
House and Senate last week.
BOTH BUDGETS differ from President Reagan's
request that funding for supplemental grants, state
grants, and national direct student loans be
eliminated.
Instead, the plans increase appropriations for Pell
Grants, supplemental grants, and state grants, while

maintaining the funds in the Guaranteed Student
Loan program and slightly decreasing work study
funding and National Direct Student loans.
But Reagan has said he would approve a com-
promise incorporating such appropriations anyway,
according to Butts.
A House-Senate conference committee is scheduled
to meet next Tuesday to begin combining the two
budgets. According to Butts, Jamie Whitten (D-
Miss.), chairman of the House appropriations com-
mittee has said the Senate budget figures are likely
to be approved by the commitee.
UNDER THE budget passed by the Senate,-the Pell
grant program would be increased by $381 million,
raising the limit for students from the current level of
$1,800 to $2,000. The House version calls for a $200
million increase nad a $1,900 limit.
Grotrian said the Pell grant differences alone could

have very different effects on aid to University
students.
"If the House figures are in the permanent budget,
we will fund between 300 and 400 fewer students," he
said. "If the Senate figures are accepted, we will be
able to continue our current level of funding."
WORK STUDY funds are also in trouble, Butts
said, because a jobs bill which provided $40 million of
the $590 million program has not beenrenewed.
A vote in the House to maintain that additional fun-
ding failed last month, but Butts said a proposal to
restore the funding may be brought before the House
again next spring.
Once the congressional conference committee
reaches a compromise, which it is expected to do late
Tuesday, the budget will go back to both houses for
approval.
Butts said a compromise is almost complete, and
says he expects the president to approve it.

Political bout livens 'U' draft panel

By KAREN TENSA
A panel discussion on the law that
links financial aid to draft registration
turned into more of a political rally
against militarism, causing one par-
ticipant to declare that the promotion of
forum had been "misstated and
misrepresented."
"Draft registration must end now or
we will get into another war as wrong
and as disastrous as Vietnam -
whether its in Central America, the
Mideast, or in Southeast Asia," boomed
the voice of state Rep. Perry Bullard
(D-Ann Arbor) to a crowd of about 70 in
the Michigan Union's Pendleton Room.
"THE* SOLOMON Amendment,"
which requires applicants for federal
financial aid to sign a statement
declaring their compliance with the
draft registration law, "has given
students the cruel choice of no financial
aid or militarism," Bullard said.
But Douglas Kahn, a University law
school professor who was at the forum
to discuss the amendment in terms of
its legal validity, told the crowd that he
"didn't expect a political pep rally."

IN ADDITION to Bullard and Kahn,
panelmembers included University
Regent Gerald Dunn (D-Garden City),
University Financial Aid Director Har-
vey Grotrian, Michigan American Civil
Liberties Union Director Howard
Simon, and Thomas Butts, the Univer-
sity's lobbyist in Washington.
Each member spoke on his personal
and professional opinions of the amen-
dment.
Bullard said that registration is the
first step to the United States entering a
war in a Third World nation. "I thought
our role as the world's peacekeeper had
ended in Vietnam," he said.
HE STRESSED the political impor-
tance of the amendment and urged the
audience to "leave this meeting and
march against the draft registration."
Simon said the "real discussion of the
Solomon Amendment is on the draft
and the draft registration."
"You must put Solomon in the context
of a means of enforcing the
registration," he said. "And the

JERUSALEM - Finance Minister
Yoram Aridor resigned yesterday,
hours after he proposed a revolutionary
scheme that would have linked the
Irraeli economy to the American
dollar.
Aridor resigned less than an hour into
an emergency meeting of Shamir's
Cabinet, called to debate his proposal -
dubbed the "Dollarization Plan - to
make both the dollar and the Israeli
shekel legal tender. The shekel was
devalued 23 percent Tuesday.
ARIDOR said he believed
dollarization - his own term - would
reduce Israel's triple-digit annual in-
flation to the level of inflation of other
Western economies.
As Aridor explained it, Israel's
system of automatically compensating
salary earners for inflation had
produced "terrible distortions in the
economy." Wages and prices were con-
stantly pushing each other, up, and
"somewhere along the line we have to
break this vicious circle."
He proposed linking all salaries and
debts to the dollar and abolishing com-
pensation for inflation.
THE PLAN, published first in an
Israeli newspaper and headlined

around the world, jolted the nation and
sparked criticism from both the op-
position Labor Party and Shamir's
Likud coalition.
"What he means is we will become-
the 51st state," said Haim Ben-
Shachar, a Tel Aviv University
economics professor and Labor Party
activist.
"We will not be able to make any ex-
penditures except in dollars. If the
Americans don't give them to us we
may be faced with unemployment," he
said.
Aridor had said dollarization could
ultimately lead to the dollar becoming
legal tender in Israel alongside the
shekel, which was introduced in Oc-
tober 1980 at a value of 17 cents, and is
now worth 1.23 cents.
Top candidates considered to replace
Aridor, when his resignation takes ef-
fect tomorrow were Energy Minister
Yitzhak Modai and former Defense
Minister Ezer Weizman.
The Labor Party said it would call for
a no-confidence vote in the Shamir's
government next Monday, and would
introduce legislation to dissolve the
Knesset, or Parliament, and call early
elections.

really want to sell but she insisted." Weeks later a friend of
Glendhill's voiced doubts about the creator of the work. "It
was only when a friend said he thought it looked like

he admitted that a duck had done it. He was quite bold
