BEIRUT, Lebanon - Snipers killed
one U.S. Marine and seriously injured
another yesterday. Marine officials say
the attack may be part of a campaign to
provoke the peacekeeping forces into
combat.
The death brought to six the number
of Marines killed in Lebanon. Fifty-one
have been wounded.
TWO MARINE positions came under
grenade and small arms fire, and
sniping on the eastern perimeter of the
1,600-man Marine encampment at
Beirut's international airport prompted
a "condition one" alert for line troops.
Marine spokesman Maj. Robert Jor-
dan said sniping incidents since Sunday
suggest a pattern of "individuals trying
to harass the Marines and trying to
draw them into some kind of confron-
tation."
The snipers fired on a jeep carrying
two Marines back from a bomb disposal
call yesterday morning, mortally
wounding Sgt. Allen Soifert. Staff Sgt.
Dennis Allston, 25, of Philadelphia, Pa.,
was unhurt but he said his partner was
shot in the chest and trapped under the
jeep when it overturned - "caught in a
cross-fire of two weapons." Allston was
thrown free.
The two Marines came under sniper
fire while driving through Shiite
Moslem slums near their: Beirut airport
headquarters.
IN WASHINGTON, deputy White
House press secretary Peter Roussel
said President Reagan spoke by
telephone yesterday with Soifert's
mother and stepfather, Joan and
Abraham Roemer of Nashua, N.H. and
"expressed his deep reget."

Former U.S. President Gerald Ford yesterday
launched a University fundraising campaign aimed
at netting $160 million in private donations for the
University.
The "Campaign for Michigan" is the third and final
phase of the five-year plan to make the University
"smaller but better."
FORD, SERVING as national honorary chairman
for the campaign, spoke to about 550 volunteers and
members of the University community at a Crisler,
Arena luncheon.
"As an alumnus, I hope I can go around the country
and enthusiastically--and emphatically convince
people that what they give in dollars is a great in-
vestment in this country," he said at a press con-
ference preceeding the luncheon.

"The University of Michigan is one of the few great
universities equipped to help generate the creative
resurgence of our culture and our economy," he told
the group.
ALTHOUGH THE University ranks among the
nation's top schools receiving individual and cor-
porate donations, officials hope the campaign will
ultimately raise the level of regular annual private
gifts.
The campaign, the largest of its kind for public in-
stitutions, is in part a response to decling state aid to
public schools, which has forced tuition to increase
rapidly in the past few years.
University President Harold Shapiro said the cam-
paign will have a significant impact on tuition, and
that tuition could conceivably decrease, but that
depends more on the level of state support.

"QUALITY PUBLIC education is going to have to
be more creative in garnering support," said
Shapiro. "We feel perfectly up to the challenge .. .
(and) hope to be in a leadership position."
Gov. James Blanchard, who also addressed the
crowd, said he was supportive of the campaign, for
the benefit of both the University and the state.
"Higher education, particularly public, is really at a
critical turning point," he said. "We've begun - and
only just begun - to reverse the trend."
Regent Robert Nederlander, the campaign chair-
man, said it has been "sobering" to watch the burden
of increasing costs fall on students, but warned that
the campaign will not make up for recent declining
state support.
"THE 'CAMPAIGN for Michigan' by itself will not

Reagan said.

envoy to the Middle East, emerged
yesterday as the leading candidate to
take over William Clark's job as
assistant to the president for national

say on the record who would get the job

less pay for the labors. They objected and he laid them off
until Oct. 24. Meanwhile, several people have inquired
about franchises, Alarid said. "I can't believe all the in-

my little doughnut shop."
