chhiking on the 500 block of South State

who stopped to give her a ride, Ann Ar-
bor Police Sargeant Jan Suomala said,
adding that details are sketchy.

a van picked up at 11:15 p.m. and drove
around before picking up a third male
friend, Suomala said.
ACCORDING to Suomala, the woman
said she went with the men to buy beer.
Police do not know whether the
woman attempted to get away from the
men or if she willingly stayed with them
to drink, Suomala said.
After finishing the beer, the van's
driver dropped offd the other two men
in the vehicle and took the woman to
what she described as a cemetery out-
side the city limits where he reportedly
raped her, Suomala said.
The man dropped the woman off in
Ann Arbor at 6 a.m., Sept. 14, Suomala
The woman said she woke up her
roommate and the two went to the
hospital and called police.
According"to Suomala, police have
not yet started investigating the in-

Reagan, Mondale set debates
WASHINGTON - President Ronald Reagan and Walter Mondale will
meet in a 90-minute televised debates on Oct 7 in Louisville, Ky., and Oct. 21 in
Kansas City, Mo., the League of Women Voters announed yesterday.
Their vice presidential running mates, George Bush and Geraldine
Ferraro, will debate under an identical format in Philadelphia on Oct. 11, the
league said.
The Democratic nominee had sought six debates with the president. But
Mondale said in Dearborn, Mich., that the agreement for two debates was
"all that we could get."
White House deputy press secretary Marlin Fitzwater said: The president,.
looks forward to these debates. He has said from the beginning that he sup-,
ports the principle of debates and that presidential candidates should debate
the issues."
The first presidential debate will cover the economy and other domestic
issues, the second defense and foreign policy, said league President Dorothy
Ridings. The vice presidential matchup wil be equally divided in time between
domestic and foreign questions.
At a news conference, Ridings said the debates would include a moderator
and four questioners. probably all journalists.
Grenada's prime minister
warned of U.S. intervention
WASHINGTON - A year before the U.S.-led invasion of Greanda, then
Prime Minster Maurice Bishop outlined in a secret speech his strategy for
establishing a Marxist-Leninist state but warned that the plan must remain
confidential lest it provoke American military action.
Accordingly, Bishop said, he had invited a number of "bourgeois" elemen
ts to join his government so that the United States, mindful that "some nice
fellas" had joined the revolution, "wouldn't think about sending in troops."
The speech, delivered before a closed meeting of his New Jewel Movement
on Sept. 13, 1982, was stamped "Confidential" by Grenadian authorities. U.S.
officials said it is the lead item in a compendium of party, state, and police
papers captured on Grenada that the Reagan administration plans to
release shortly. No date has been set as yet.
France, Libya to leave Chad
PARIS - France and Libya announced yesterday their troops will begin
pulling 'out of Chad on Sept. 25, signaling an end to the 13-month military
standoff in the central African country.
But the withdrawal could create a military vacuum and trigger a resum-
ption of Chad's 20-yaer civil war, according to independent analysts and
diplomats in Paris.
The French limited their official statements yesterday to the mechanics of
the pullout. The offical Libyan news agency JANA also announced that the
withdrawal of troops, weapons and equipment would begin Sept. 25.
Foreign Minister Claude Cheysson said he worked out the arrangement
last weekend during talks with Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy in Tripol,
the Libyan capital.
He said a timetable had been established and a date for completion of the
pullout set, but they were being kept secret, and no guarantees had been'
U.S. trade deficit Highest ever
WASHINGTON The broadest measure of U.S. foreign trade plunged to
another record deficit during the April-June quarter, spured by weaker
overseas investment income and a surge in Americans traveling abroad, the
government said yesterday.
The deficit in the current account hit $24.4 billion in the second uarter.
surpassing the previous mark of $19.7 billion set just one quarter earlier;'.
the Commerce Department said
The operating rate at the nation's factories, mines, and utilities remained
unchanged in August at 82.6 percent of capacity, the first time in 21 months
this measure of economic health has failed to show an increase.
After reviewing the latest figures; Commerce Secretary Malcolm
Baldrige predicted the deficit for the whole year would exceed $100 billion,
surpassing his earlier projections of an $80 billion shortfall.
The country's poor trading performance has become an issue in the
presidential campaign, with Democratic challenger Walter Mondale com-
plaining that President Reagan has not done enough to.nrotect against a loss
of American jobs from the flood of foreign imports.
Mondale attacks Mideast policy
WASHINGTON - Walter Mondale said yesterday that President Reagan
has been "essentially absent" from the search for peace in the Middle East
and that four more years under the president's leadership" will take us closer
to the brink" of war.
"No wonder the world has the iitters." the Democratic presidential can-
didate said as he assaulted Reagan's record in U.S.-Soviet relations, cen-
tral America, human rights and Middle Eastern policy.
In an address to a group of Jewish supporters, Mondale said Reagan "has
squandered the promise of the Camp David accords between Egypt and
Mondale said he would "scrap the failed Reagan plan" for peace in the
region and give the men Israeli government tine to develop its own policies
toward the Arabs. He also said he would move the U. embassy in Israel to

The Democratic presidential candidate charged that Reagan has pursued'
a policy of "illusions" that has included dealing with Israel at times as
though it were an adversary.
Mondale said he was placing Reagan on notice that "I will make the
question of war and peace a major issue in this campaign" and his speech to:
the Jewish group was the opening salvo in that effort.
