"I go to bed every night thanking God
don't live in Russia," former
'ecretary of State Alexander Haig said
last night as he gave his views on
foreign policy to an enthusiastic and
heckler-filled audience in Rackham
Auditorium.
Despite repeated interruptions and
catcalls, Haig appeared relaxed as he,
spoke - now more than a year after he
left the Reagan White House and en-
tered private life.
HAIG SAID America's top foreign
olicy issue is the conflict in the Middle
East. "It has the seeds of potential con-
flict - both regional and superpower."
Although he disagrees with some of the
administration's actions early in the
struggle, Haig said, the Marines "are
there to stay," and he would not favor
their withdrawal.
America must also address problems
in other parts of the world, he said,
especially in third world countries. He
said many such nations which have
keen bloody revolutions in recent years
have governments which are now
mature enough to see the value of
aligning with the United States. If
America should "turn a deaf ear" to
these nations now, he said, new
revolutions will occur led by people who
hope to gain power by aligning with the
Soviet Union.
Haig said it was too early to deter-
mine the extent of Soviet influence in
, the recent coup on the island of Grenada,
k'but he said it had the potential to be

much like Afghanistan where a Soviet
puppet was installed as the leader.
HE SAID THE Soviets are also trying
to break down Western Europe's at-
tachment to the U.S. and that recent
American limitations on imports of
European steel would probably lead to
a retaliatory limiting of purchases of
American agricultural products.
The people of Western Europe, he
Chantig

said, are suffering from a "nuclear
schizophrenia" - a combination of
fears that America might start a
nuclear war and that European lands
might be sacrificed to protect the
United States.
"International affairs is a group of
unsolvable problems," he said, adding
that the best the U.S. can do is try to

protesters greet Haig

By PETE WILLIAMS
Former Secretary of State Alexander
Haig's speech at Rackham Auditorium
last night turned into a vicious dialogue
between cat-calling hecklers and the
sardonic speaker.
About 1500 people squeezed into the
auditorium to hear both Haig and a
vocal minority of protesters discuss
foreign policy and defense issues.
Those 300 to 500 people who could not
get in pounded on the doors at intervals
throughout Haig's speech. Many
hecklers unfurled anti-military banners
bearing such slogans as "National
Security is a Front for Corrupt Self-
Interest," and "Feed the Hunry, Not
the Pentagon."
ALTHOUGH Haig attempted to

follow the original outline for his
speech, he stopped repeatedly to coun-
ter individual protesters.
"You will have a question-and-
answer period," he said. "Why don't
you prove your intelligence then?"
He said his presentations at several
other universities, including Princeton,
Yale, and Columbia, had not been
nearly so difficult because he "didn't
have to face this nonsense.''
.But after the speech he said the reac-
tions here were characteristic of many
campuses.
HAIG WAS subjected to various
protests throughout yesterday, in-
cluding students who chanted and dan-
ced outside his room in East Quad

Psychology
prof quits

diaig res
By JACKIE YOUNG
The University's first formal in-
vestigation into charges that a tenured
professor had sexually harassed female
students came to- an end yesterday
when University President Harold
Shapiro announced the professor's
resignation.
Sources close to the investigation say
the professor, who was facing seven
separate allegations of sexually
harrassing female students and staff
members was a member of the
psychology department.
OFFICIALS HAVE not released the
professor's name or details about the
charges against him.
The unprecedented appication of the
regents' bylaws against sexual
harassment began last October when
Shapiro asked a key faculty committee
- the Senate Advisory Committee on
University Affairs (SACUA) - to in-
vestigate allegations . about the
professor's misconduct.
Shapiro's request that SACUA take
up the case followed recommendations
by both the LSA dean and Vice
*President for Academic Affairs and
Provost Billy Frye.
SACUA's subcommittee on tenure
held hearings to investigate the
allegations. After ten meetings where
committee members heard testimony
from witnesses presented by both the
University and the psychology
professor, the subcommittee concluded
that "misconduct had occurred and
recommended dismissal of the faculty
member," Shapiro said in a prepared
statement.
THE PROFESSOR'S case was ap-
pealed to SACUA which approved the

House votes to cut CIA support

WASHINGTON (AP) - A bitterly-
divided House yesterday voted for the
second time in three months to cut off
CIA support for Nicaraguan counter-
revolutionaries. The 227-194 vote,
largely along party lines, was nearly
dentical to the earlier tally.
Like the first cut-off proposal, the
new one is seen as unlikely to win ap-
proval in the Republican-controlled
Senate.
THERE WERE 209 Democrats and 18
Repulicans voting for a cut-off.
The house vote came after a heated

debate in which each side accused the
other of risking deeper U.S. in-
volvement in Central America's wars.
"Military victory is the ad-
ministration's bottom line," charged
Rep. Edward Boland, (D-Mass.),
chairman of the House Intelligence
Committee, about the expanding CIA
backing for Nicaraguan "Contras" -
or counter-revolutionaries.
BOLAND, sponsor of the cut-off
amendment, said the administration
must stop "waging war in Nicaragua.
And make no mistake about it, this is

exactly what the United States is
doing."
But Republicans said the covert ac-
tion had succeeded in pressuring
Nicaragua's Sandinista government.to
curtail support for leftist guerrillas in
El Salvador and to accept new peace
proposals from the so-called Contadora
nations - Mexico, Colombia,
Venezuela and Panama.
Further, declared Rep. William
Whitehurst, (R-Va.), an intelligence
committee member, if the covert action
is stopped, "before this decade is out,

to Nicaraguan

nays no one can imagine." He concrete and

P OLICE IN Armonk, N.Y. say they'll probably never
solve the mystery of "Glitter Man," a naked 27-year-

tacted an ambulance, which took the man to a hospital,
where he was treated and released. Police have not iden-
tified the man. "We treated it as an aided case," Quinones
said. "There was no crime committed." The man didn't file
a complaint against anyone, and had apparently spray-
painted himself, Quinones said. He was "on another
wavelength," the officer said, or possibly intoxicated. El

Also on this date in history:
"1970 - The Office of Student Services set guidelines to
bar companies with offices in South Africa from using the
University placement services.
"1969 - About 20 women in Betsey Barbour became ill
with what some University officials suspected was food
poisoning.
=1954 - A group of students formed what the Daily called
the first student political party, which was dedicated to
fighting for such issues as better student football seats and
revision of student and faculty dismissal procedures.
