LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) - Lebanon's
Moslem and Christian leaders ended nine days of
reconciliation talks yesterday without agreeing on
political reforms to give the various communities
more equal power.
The nine leaders did agree, however, to set up a
political committee to draft reforms within six mon-
ths, and to elevate the status of a previously named
security committeee in hopes of making the cease-
fire declared in Lebanon a reality.
Both committees will be headed by Maronite
Christian President Amin Gemayel, according to a
300-word final communitque issued by the conferen-

concentrated on convincing former Lebanese

some points in a compromise paper presented to the
heads of delegation Monday night by Gemayal, the
chairman of the conference.
Franjieh rocked the opposition Monday by with-

He said he objected to curbing the executive power of

restrict student fees
By MARCY FLEISHER
The Michigan Student Assembly
voted unanimously last night to send a
letter to several state senators, op-
posing a bill which would forbid the use
of student fees to support political ac-
tivities without the written consent of
The bill, proposed by state Sen. Allen
Cropsey (R-DeWitt) is aimed at groups
that collect money from students
because some students at Michigan
State University have complained that
groups like the Public Interest Resear-
ch Group in Michigan are allowed to
THE ROUGH draft of the bill states
that "Unless prior written approval is
attained, a student at a public in-
stitution of higher education in
Michigan shall not be assessed a fee or
required to donate to any political ad-
vocacy group or non-profit
Although Cropsey has said the bill is
not aimed at student governments,
MSA's letter says that by removing
anything of a political nature from
student activity fees, the principle pur-
pose of higher education, "to be a
diverse, participatory learning ex-
perience" would be undermined.
Also last night, the assembly
unanimously voted against a proposed
amendment by the Michigan Union
Board of Representatives that would
exclude MSA from its student selection

percent from December's 15.1 percent level, but was below the 20.8 percent
rate of a year ago.
Michigan's jobless rate was 12.7 percent.
The data was not adjusted for seasonal factors and compares to an unad-
justed national rate of 8.8 percent for January, up from 8 percent in Decem-
ber. The unadjusted national rate dropped to 8.4 percent in February.
The seasonally adjusted national rate was 8 percent in January, and drop-

Fatquakeshakes Soviet Union
MOSCOW - A strong earthquake shook a 500-mile section of the Soviet
Union in Central Asia, destroying buildings and prompting the government
to order immediate aid for victims, Tass news agency said yesterday.
It did not mention casualties but said "the population of the areas rocked
by the earthquake is given the necessary assistance along the lines of all-
union and republican organizations."
The epicenter of the Monday night quake was given as the Bukhara region

Soviet tanker hit in Nicaragua
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - A Soviet taner bringing oil to Nicaragua hit a
mine yesterday that was planted by rebels in Puerto Sandino harbor, a well-
placed military source reported. He said the ship was seriously damaged,
with several crew members wounded, but managed to reach the dook.
The injured Soviet seamen were then taken to a hospital in Chinandega, 78
miles northwest of the capitol, said the source, who spoke on condition his
name not be used. He said he didn't know the number of wounded or the
name of the Soviet vessel, which struck the mine at 2 p.m.
Puerto Sandino is 38 miles west of Managua, the capitol. Rebels fighting to
overthrow the leftist Sandinista government have issued statements saying
they have mined Nicaragua's ports as a warning to foreign ships to stay
Spring storms sweep Midwest
Spring made an icy debut yesterday in the Midwest, where 235,000 homes
were still without power and National Guard armories were opened to stran-
ded travelers and residents without heat.
The same storm system, which has been blamed for 14 deaths since it
swept out of the Rockies over the weeked and built 10-foot snowdrifts in
places, also whipped up severe thunderstorms in the Southeast.
Tornado watches were posted in parts of the Florida Panhandle, eastern
Alabama, and western and northern Georgia. Separate tornadoes Monday
ripped through Jonesboro and Halliday in Arkansas, damaging nine houses.

the Kansas City area.
Judge sends rape case to jury
FALL RIVER, Mass. - Both sides completed their cases yesterday in the
trial of four men charged in a barroom gang rape, and the judge prepared to
send the case to the jury, just days after two other defendants were convic-
ted in a separate trial.
The defense called eight witnesses during a day-and-a-half of testimony
which ended yesterday.
Security was tight as court officers tried to keep the sequestered jury from
learning of the other jury's verdict Saturday. The cases against the six men
were split into two trials to prevent defendants from.testifying against each
Final arguments are scheduled for today, and Judge William Young told
the jurors they would likely start deliberation later in the day.
