GEO set
to mail
ballots for
vote on
contract
By JAN RUBENSTEIN
After a two-week delay, the Graduate
Employees Organization (GEO) will
mail ballots to the University's 1700
graduate student teaching assistants
and staff assistants to vote on a con-
tract agreement reached with the
University administration Sept. 26.
GEO needs 51 percent of its voting
membership to approve the contract
for its ratification. University officials
estimate that GEO's membership stan-
ds at around 800. But that figure in-
cludes only those students who have
notified the University, and others may
have dealt directly with the union to
:join.
GEO MEMBERS attributed the delay
An issuing the ballots to apathy among
TAs in organizing the vote. At a meeting
on Oct. 5, the union could not find volun-
teers to handle the election process.
Gene Goldenfeld agreed to }head the
Elections Committee at a meeting held
Oct. 12. " had made a proposal about
the electipns, and people said, 'Why
don't you do it?"' he said.
To better organize itself, the union
last night changed its management
structure from a 10-member Steering
Committee to an Executive Committee
with a group of officers. Celeste Berke
was elected president of the union last
night - the first for GEO since early
1981.
The Union hadn't been able to fill out
its Steering Committee since fall term
of 1982 because GEO couldn't get a
quorum for its meetings last winter.
The structure created last night
provides "a more specified way of
allocating responsiblity," Berke said.
ALSO ELECTED last night were
Jane Holzka, vice president; Rick
Maitland, treasurer; and Barbara
Joos, secretary.
In an effort to ensure a large voter
turnout, the Elections Committee is
sending out ballots to all 1700 persons
who would be affected by the contract,
if ratified. Although all graduate
student assistants are covered by GEO

Grac prep courses boost
exam scores, study says

By PETE WILLIAMS
The money pre-professional school
students spend on preparatory courses
for the LSAT, MCAT, and other exams
doesn't go to waste, according to a
study by University researchers
released yesterday.
Researchers from the University's
Center for Research on Learning and
Teaching found that expert coaching
programs can be effective for boosting
student's scores on the ,all-important
board exams that are necessary for
admission. into most professional
programs.
ALTHOUGH previous research has
said that the SAT and similar tests are
"coach-proof" and the College Entran-
ce Examination Board believes them to
be a waste of time and money, "people
can increase their performance by

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Reagan charged the Soviet Union last
night with encouraging the violence in
both Lebanon and Grenada "through a
network of surrogates and terrorists."
It is "clear a Cuban occupation" of
Grenada had been planned, he said.
"We got there just in time," Reagan
said.
The President said the foremost
mission of the American invasion of the
Marxist-ruled Caribbean island was to
guarantee the safety of U.S. citizens.
"The nightmare of our hostages in Iran
must never be repeated," he declared.
REAGAN ALSO voted that those
responsible for the bombing in Beirut
that killed 225 Marines and sailors
"must be dealt justice. They willbe."
In a televised address to the nation,
Reagan said, "The events in Lebanon
and Grenada, though oceans apart, are
closely related. Not only has Moscow
assisted and encouraged the violence in
both countries, but it provides direct
support through a network of
surrogates and terrorists."
"It is no coincidence that when the
thugs tried to wrest control over
Grenada, there were 30 Soviet advisers
and hundreds of Cuban military and
paramilitary forces on the island,"
Reagan said.
"TWO HOURS ago," said the
President, "we released the first photos
from Grenada. They included pictures
of a warehouse of military equipment,
one of three we have uncovered so far.
This warehouse contained weapons and
ammunition stacked almost to the1
ceiling, enough to supply thousands of
terrorists.
"Grenada, we were told, was a frien-

dly island paradise for tourism. But is
wasn't. -It was a Soviet-Cuban colony
being readied as a major military
bastion to export terror and undermine
democracy. We got there just in time,"
he said.
The president devoted most of his ad-
dress to his explanatidn of why
American forces remain in Lebanon
despite the heavy loss of lives. But he
declared the invasion of Grenada a
"brilliant operation," that thwarted a

James Kulik, one of the researchers.
Kulik said that different prep courses
vary in their effectiveness, but he poin-
ted to the popular Stanley Kaplan cour-
se as being especially effective. "An
average kid who went through (the
Stanley Kaplan) program improved by
25 points on the verbal and math sec-
tions (of the SAT), so that is a total of 50

points" on a scale of 200 through 800, he
said.

of the Stanley Kaplan Center in South-

Lebanon rally backs
multinational force

From AP and UPI
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Pro-
government Lebanese carrying U.S.
I and French flags rallied yesterday to
show support for the multinational for-
ce in Lebanon. The Marine commander
said new security measures had been
enforced to prevent a repeat of the
suicide bombings that killed more than
270 Americans and French soldiers.
The death toll from the attacks at the
French and U.S. bases continued to
rise: 221 U.S. servicemen were killed,
according to the Pentagon, and 56
French soldiers died, according to
French military officials in Beirut.
THE SEARCH for missing bodies, in-
cluding two Frenchmen presumed
dead, went on at both camps.
-Marines formed long lines at their
base at Beirut's international airport to
telephone assurances to relatives in the
United States. Up to five Marines at a

time lined up to use two international
telephone circuits to the United States.
Hundreds of demonstrators, suppor-
ters of President Amin Gemayel, mar-
ched to the residence of the U.S. and
French ambassadors led by Gemayel's
15-year-old daughter, Nicole. They
carried U.S. and French flags and ban-
ners such as one proclaiming, "U.S.
Marines - Heroes Of Peace."
MEANWHILE in Paris, Secretary of
State George Shultz joined with the
foreign ministers of Britain, France
and Italy Thursday in pledging to main-
tain their forces in Beirut despite the
twin terrorist attacks that killed more
than 200 Americans and 50 french
soldiers:
Shultz and the other ministers said
their countries were making "those
sacrifices ... for the cause of peace and
unity in Lebanon."

Albuquerque, N.M. defended his policy of using the phone to
arraign defendants who are in jail but face new charges.
"If a person is in confinement, he doesn't need a bond. Why
spend the taxpayers' money bringing them here and run-
ning the risk of letting them get away?" the judge
reasoned. Love said he has already held one telephone
arraignment - for an 18-year-old confined at the state Boys
Home who had new charges brought against him. The
