Pentagon
reports on
S0
Soviet war
machine
buildup
WASHINGTON (AP) - Defense Sec-
retary Caspar Weinberger said yester-
day the latest Pentagon report on the
Soviet military shows Moscow is con-
tinuing to build a war machine aimed at
"world domination." A chief goal of the
third annual report is to bolster
flagging support for the Reagan ad-
ministration's record five-year defense
buildup.
The buildup has run into increasing
fire on Capitol Hill. Members of
Congress worried about growing
federal deficits want to trim the ad-
ministration's proposal for $305 billion
- a 13 percent boost - in authorized
defense spending for the next fiscal
year to below 10 percent.
WEINBERGER told a news con-
ference the Soviet Union's military ef-
fort means "we have to make very
large and clearly unwelcome efforts"
to build up U.S. and NATO defenses.
The Soviets are testing two new
strategic intercontinental ballistic
missiles, the SSX-24 and the FSX-25, the
publication said. It added that "there
are no security requirements for the
development of so large a quantity of
strategic offensive weapons.'

A Seaboard System freight train, which was pulling four cars loaded with 281,000 gallons of methanol, derailed
yesterday in Marshville, N.C., kicking off a fire which spread through the downtown area. The entire population of 2,107
were forced to evacuate. Firefighters planned to let the fire burn itself out.

'To the contrary," a White House

The furor, growing since the initial

reports of CIA involvement in mining
two key Nicaraguan ports, took on the
appearance of a political firestorm with
the revelation Reagan approved the
operation in February without notifying
Senate intelligence committee Chair-
man Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz).
"I am pissed off," Goldwater said in
a blistering letter to CIA director
William Casey. "The president has

asked us to back his foreign policy. How
can we back his foreign policy when we
don't know what the hell he is doing?"
The White House did not address the
issue of the covert mine laying, but
chose instead to lash out at the "shrill
and often confusing debate that has
developed over our goals, plans and ac-
tivities in Central America.''

University administrators, however,
say. the proposed code would not
undermine the disciplinary procedures
of individual houses or national

"THOSE SYSTEMS are excellent,"
said University Vice President for
Student Services Henry Johnson. "The
only time that becomes a problem is
when a student thinks that is not
e*ective enough."
But leaders of fraternities and
sororities say they are skeptical of the
University's sudden concern about
their members. Since the early 1970's,
the administration has not provided the
groups with' financial support and has
made a clear point of keeping distance
from Greek activities.

ALTHOUGH Johnson agrees the
University does not "maintain a formal
link with the Greek system in the ad-
ministrative sense," that doesn't
preclude the school from having
jurisdiction over house activities.
Membership in sororities, frater-
nities and co-ops depends on University
students, Johnson explains, citing that
the Panhellenic Association, ICC and
IFC also use office space in the
Michigan Union - a University
