SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP)
The Meagan administration is
worried that Sunday's presidential
*election there could lead to new
political turmoil, but it is determined
nonetheless to continue military aid to
the Salvadoran army.
U.S. officials agreed that
congressional support for military
assistance could be endangered if far-
right candidate Roberto d'Aubuisson, .
D'Aubuisson, a cashiered national
guard major who allegedly has ties to
rightist death squads, and Christian
Democrat candidate Jose Napoleon
6darte are considered the front-
rirners in the election.
If none of the eight candidates
receives more than half of the total vote
cast on Sunday, a runoff between the
top two vote-getters will be held a mon-
th later.
While Duarte is expected to lead the

field Sunday, he probably will fall short
of the needed absolute majority.
D'Aubuisson is given a better chance in
a runoff if he is endorsed by the other
rightist parties.
The prospect of a d'Aubuisson victory
and the cutoff of U.S. aid also has
sparked speculation that the army
might stage a coup to keep d'Aubuisson
U.S. officials, however, have sought
to discourage such thinking, saying the
United States will accept whomever
Salvadoran voters elect.
The Reagan administration, which
sends hundreds of millions of dollars in
military and economic aid to the
Salvadoran government, has a big
voice in domestic affairs here.
"When you've pushed the elections
this far, you can't say you won't live
with the results," said a Western
diplomatic source, who insisted he not
be identified further.

You guessed it. It's Greek Week once
again, the seven-day long, not-so-
dionysian festival held each spring.
TO RAISE MONEY for local
charities during Greek Week, sororities
and fraternities compete in numerous
contests which LSA freshperson Jamie
Stone calls the best time of the year.
Some of the more interesting activities
include Zeta Tau Alpha's Mr. Greek
Week Pageant which raises money for
the Washtenaw Association for Retar-
ded Citizens. Theta Chi's Bob Stoick
won this year's event which usually
grosses $3000.
According to Sonia Nordgren, a
Panhellenic Association officer, greek
sing is the biggest event held during the.
week. The performance features all of
the sorority-fraternity teams com-
peting in two divisions: choral and
variety. Singing "My Bonnie Lass She
Smelleth," Alpha Phi, Phi Gamma
Delta, and Triangle tied Kappa Kappa
Gamma, Alpha Tau Omega, and Alpha
Sigma Phi's "Beautiful City" placed
first in the choral division.
Kappa Kappa Gamma, Alpha Tau
Omega, and Alpha Sigma Phi won the

variety division with their version of a
"Trip Back to the '50s."
The proceeds from Greek Sing go to:
the Ronald McDonald House and the
Children's Leukemia Foundation.
IN ADDITION TO fundraising, Greek
Week represents "the one time of the
year when Greeks join together and
everyone's a friend. It's the only time
when your house doesn't matter.
Everything good in the Greek system
culminates this week", according to
Doris Gall, a Greek Week veteran.

brekaing down of barriers" which build'
up among the houses.
Despite the popularity and publicity
surrounding Greek Week, it only raises
about one-third of the approximately
$30,000 which Greeks donated to charity
last year. The rest of. the money
basically comes from functions spon-
sored by the individual houses.
FOR INSTANCE, Sigma Chi earned
$3000 this year for the Special Olym-:

Crisis Center with their Derby Days.

In 1886, following a shipwreck off the west coast of Africa, an infant
child became part of a family of apes who raised and protected him.
As he grew, he learned the laws of the jungle and eventually claimed
the title, Lord of the Apes.
Yet, years later, when he was returned to civilization, he would remain
uncertain as to which laws he should obey... those of man...
or those of the jungle.
Now, the director of "Chariots of Fire" captures this epic adventure
of a man caught between two different worlds.
