Soies Arabs condemn rai~d
From AP and UPI
The Soviet Union yesterday condemned U.S. retaliatory
strikes on Syrian anti-aircraft positions in Lebanon and said
it will aid Arab forces battling U.S. and Israeli troops in the
The denunciation came during a news conference on
nuclear missiles in Europe.
THE KREMLIN'S chief spokesman, Leonid Zamyatin, said
the U.S. bombing was a "new factor of aggression" in the"
Moscow "censures and condemns this actof aggression,"
Zamyatin said. "Arab countries will take the measures
necessary" in their "difficult" fight against the United States
and Israel, and the Soviet Union would give "both moral and
material" support to the battle, he said.
"We will support those who are fighting the Israeli and
American aggression in this district," he said.
THE U.S. AIR strike also drew reaction from Arab nations
ranging from calls for restraint on further military interven-
tion to indignation and outrage.
Damascus, in its latest comment on the Sunday raid said
"the United States was the aggressor and Syria was in a
position of self-defense.''
Jordan's National Assembly which includes many Cabinet
members, unanimously condemned the attack as well as the
new U.S.-Israeli military alliance announced last week, the
official news agency Petra reported in Amman.
In Saudi Arabia, which has been working with the Reagan
administration toward a poltical settlement of the strife
wracking Lebanon, officials expressed concern the U.S. ac-
tion would further destabilize the country.
"The latest military actions in Lebanon will not help in en-
ding the Lebanese crisis," said Saudi Foreign Minister Prin-
ce Saud al-Faisal during a stopover in Oman. His remarks
were carried by the Gulf News Agency.
Egypt also urged the United States and other forces to use
restraint in Lebanon. On Sunday, President Hosni Mubarak
said the U.S. Israeli alliance could undermine peace in the

Hearing delayed in 'U' student's draft registration case
'(Continued from Page 1).
According to American Civil Liber-
ties Union attorneys James Lafferty,
who is representing Rutt, the Judge
decided to delay action because the
number of documents the judge
received was greater than initially an-
ticipated and the Solicitor General of
the United States has indicated he will
appeal the Ohio decision.
Lafferty said the Detroit judge does
not want to make a decision until the
outcome of the Ohio appeal is final. If
he were to make a decision contradic-
ting the Ohio ruling, his ruling would
then become subject to further
questioning because both cases are in
the same judicial district.
THE DECISION in Ohio already con-
tradicts a decision reached earlier in
the year by a California district court.
In the California case, the defendant
was found guilty on appeal by the
government. In the Ohio case, the
defendant was found innocent on appeal
by the defense.
Dennis James,' another Rutt attor-
ney, said the judge may wait to see
whether the Ohio court grants the
government a further appeal before
deciding to hold a hearing in the Rutt
case. James said if the court grants the
Ohio appeal, the Detroit judge will most
likely await the outcome before gran-
ting the hearing. If the Ohio court says
no to the appeal, the, judge will most
likely grant the hearing immediately.
James said that the Ohio case means
the burden of proof is being put on the
government. the Ohio case "showed
that the court agrees with the defense
contention of selective prosecution, and
I think we have an even stronger case
than they do," James said.
Rutt said he feels the Ohio case shows
that the government is now "on the run
at this point:'' Rutt said he is pleased
with the judge's decision in his own
case to continue to review the documents.
In the California case, the suit had
initially been thrown out because the
government refused to turn over
documents the judge had deemed per-

Draft Action, a Washington based anti-
registration coalition, said the fact that
the two circuit courts have contradicted
each other could mean the issue will be
appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

MOSCOW - President Yuri Andropov still is in full control of the Soviet
Union and "recovering well" from an illness that has kept him out of public
view since Aug. 18, a top Kremlin spokesman said yesterday.
Leonid '2amyatin said at a news conference for Soviet and foreign repor-
ters that Andropov "is getting better and is tackling in full measure party af-
fairs, affairs of state and affairs of the Council of Defense."
Samyatin, spokesman for the Communist Party Central Committee, did
not identify the illness. Instead he cited Andropov's Oct. 29 letter sent to
physicians visiting Moscow. Andropov wrote then that he had to break an
appointment with the doctors because he had a "cold."
Pressed by Western correspondents about the exact nature of Andropov's
illness, Zamyatin said at one point, "As for insinuations, spread by your
journal too probably, that is not relevant here."
Nicaraguan concessions rejecte
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - A major opposition leader said yesterday that
political concessions announced by Nicaragua's governing Sandinistas do
not go far enough. A rebel Indian leader rejected the Sandinista offer as "a

Nicaraguan exiles, including most of the rebels who have been fighting to
topple the Sandinistas, and promised to announce a date early next year for
"To be frank, we were hoping the decrees would be broader," said a leader
of the Constitutionalist Liberal Party, one of the country's four opposition
parties. The other parties have not commented yet.
Meanwhile, two aircraft flying from Honduran territory yesterday strafed
the Pacific border port of Potosi on the Gulf of Fonseca, killing two customs
employees, officials said.
Greyhound striker killed Iy bus
ZANESVILLE, Ohio - A Greyhound striker was run over and killed yesterday
when a group of picketers swarmed a bus being used to train replacement
drivers as it slowed for a stop sign. Authorities said they didn't know
whether the driver would be charged.
The incident occured about 8:30 a.m. at an intersection just off Interstate
70 in east central Ohio, where Greyhound has been using four unmarked
buses to train drivers. Witnesses said a group of more than 50 protesters had
gathered around the moving bus as it slowed for a stop sign.
Greyhound officials, meanwhile, said at headquarters near Phoenix,
Ariz., that they expect their buses to be back in full operation by Dec. 21 or 22
if union workers accept a new contract proposal. Results of the voting are
expected to be announced Dec. 20, Greyhound spokesman Don Behnke said.
Voting on the proposed pact will be done by mail. The company has agreed
not to release details of the proposal until ballots are printed and received by
strikers, Behnke said, and Greyhound does not know when that will happen.
Reagan, Kohl praise astronauts
SPACE CENTER, Houston - President Reagan and West German Chan-
cellor Helmut Kohl talked with the six orbiting Spacelab astronaidts yester-
day, and Reagan praised the mission as "a shining example of international
cooperation at its best."
It was the first time leaders of two nations had talked with orbiting
astronauts at the same time on a joint linkup. Reagan called the 14 -minute
experience "one heck of a conference call."
Both leadersexpressed hope the flight would lead to even more ambitious
multinational space ventures in the future.
Reagan, speaking from the White House, said the united flight of the $1
billion European-built Spacelab and the U.S.-built shuttle Columbia was
"demonstrating to the world that when people are free to work together
there's nothing that can't be accomplished."
Kohl, speaking from Athens, Greece, where he is attending an economic
conference, said the presence on Spacelab 1 of West German physicist Ulf
Merbold "is an exceedingly happy circumstance." Kohl said he hopes that
the future also will be characterized by such cooperation "on both sides of

ATHENS, Greece - France and Britain clashed over key policies at a

Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher of Britian pressed for long-term
reductions in its contributions to the market's budget. Britian pays $830
million more annually than it draws in benefits from the market, and each
year it applies for a refund.
President Francois Mitterrand of France has offered, as an interim
solution, that Britian get a one-time refund of its contributions to the Com-
mon Market budget. The current budget is $21 billion a year.
"The battle for the construction of Europe will be long, very long. That
being said, it was France who won the 100 Years War," a spokesman for Mit-
terrand said, referring to the war between. France and England from 1337-
A spokesman for Thatcher scoffed at Mitterrand's proposal. "It can't be a
serious proposition," he said.
