Religion issue favors
From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - Pollster Louis
Harris said yesterday that religion in
politics is a volatile issue that could
help make the election between
President Reagan and Walter Mondale
much closer than current polls indicate.
Harris released results of a new
telephone survey which show Reagan
holding a 13-point lead over Mondale
among 1,999 eligible voters, but he told
reporters, "I expect the race to be
THE HARRIS Doll, taken Sept. 5-9,
showed Reagan leading Mondale 55
percent to 42 percent with 3 percent un-
decided. A survey taken Aug.- 24-25
registered a 55-40 split with 5 percent
not sure whom they would vote for.
Other recent polls have given Reagan
a lead as wide as 30 percent. The
Democratic nominee's own polls show
him 12 points behind the president.
Harris said the continuing debate
over abortion, school prayer and the in-
fluence of the Roman Catholic Church
on politics will work in Mondale's favor
in the seven weeks before the election.
CAMPAIGNING on oppose coasts,
Mondale and Ferraro took aim yester-
day at the Reagan administration's
record on arms control. "The fate of the
earth is at stake," in the November
elections, Ferraro said.
"Today we have a president whose
platform is committed to a policy of
prevailing in a nuclear war," Mondale
said at a campaign rally at the Univer-
sity of Southern California. "No one will
prevail in such a war. We need a
president pledged to preventing a
Mondale renewed his pledge to
declare a moratorium on the testing of
nuclear weapons and the testing and
deployment of all space weapons and to
contact$oviet leaders on his first day in
office to request a summit to negotiate
a "mutual, verifiable nuclear freeze."
BOTH MONDALE and Ferraro have
criticized Reagan for failing to meet
with his Soviet counterpart during the
first 32/2 years of his presidency.
Reagan is scheduled to meet next
week with Soviet Foreign Minister An-
drei Gromyko - one day after Mondale
sits down with the Kremlin official.
The president, who remained in the
White House for the second day in a
row yesterday, has said that "one of my
highest priorities is finding ways to
reduce the level of arms and to improve
our working relationship with the
THE REAGAN administration, con-
tending its Central America policy

that issue will be a far less attractive
target for the Democrats this fall than
it once feared, officials say.
Much of the divisiveness over
President Reagan's El Salvador policy
disappeared with the election of
President Jose Napoleon Duarte in
May. Moreover, a congressional rebuff
of a request for an additional $21 million
in aid to Nicaraguan rebels may have
the ironic effect of making Reagan less
vulnerable politically on that issue.
Democrats have begun to mute their

Penalties for the violations range
from fines of up to $300 for each
violation, to suspension or revocation of

Wosniak said that occasionally a
commissioner will not penalize clubs or
bars who violate licenses if there are

Keck said that the problems may
have resulted from U-Club managers
confusing the two types of liquor licen-
ses which the Union holds.
The U-Club has started a stricter
policy for checking student and faculty
identifications at the bar. Members of
the club who want to drink must wear a
plastic bracelet and be stamped as over
21 years old.
"WE HAVE gone to more extensive
steps to assure that everyone in (the
club) is a member of a sponsored
guest," Cianciola said.
The U-Club received its private club
license in 1972 when several professors
decided to turn the old faculty cafeteria
in the Union into a nightclub and dining
For the first few years, the club was
operated by a board of professors,
students, and alumni who were appoin-
ted by the University regents and set
the broad policies for the bar and hired
managers to run the daily operaton.
NOW, HOWEVER, the U-Club is
operated almost exclusively by the
Union while the board of directors
exists solely to retain possession of the
liquor license, according to several
Board members warned that
plublicity over the recent citation and
reports of violations may stir up
problems that have plagued the club's
operators since its beginnings but
which have tailed off in recent years.
Some said that the recent problems
could provide liquor control officials
with an excuse to revoke the club's
They have been forced< to deny other
state universities similar licenses.
Several years after the state granted
the U-Club private status, courts ruled
that all the property of public univer-
sities belonged to the public, Keck said.
WHEN OTHER universities applied
for similar licenses, they were told that
a private club could not exist on public
property or be run by public officials,
The U-Club, however, retained its
license throughout the change, he said.
It is the only such club with a liquor
license on a state supported campus,
"I suppose if you want to say it was
grandfathered in, it was," Keck said,
referring to the grandfather clause,
which prohibited the new law from af-
fecting clubs that had already been
granted a license.
If the U-Club was to lose its license, it
would almost certainly not be able to
regain it by re-applying, Keck said.

Man gets 25 years in Chin case
DETROIT - A former autoworker who got off with a fine of $3,700 and
probation in a state court for clubbing a Chinese man to death was sentenced
by a federal judge Tuesday to 25 years in prison for violating Vincent Chin's-
U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs-Taylor ordered Ronald Ebens to report
Oct. 18 to be sent to a federal prison where he can receive treatment for
alcohol abuse. Ebens has been free on $20,000 bond since his June 28 convic-
Chin, a 27-year-old engineer from Oak Park, was beaten with a baseball
bat in Highland Park, Mi. after an argument with Ebens and his stepson,
Michael Nitz, inside the Fancy Pants bar. Chin and some friends were in the
strip joint celebrating his upcoming wedding.
On June 28, the Jury found Ebens guilty of violating Chin's civil rights, but
acquitted him of a conspiracy charge. Nitz was acquitted on both charges.
Soviets may release crew soon
MOSCOW - The captain of an American supply ship, who said his vessel
was seized last week by Soviets and towed to a Siberian port, said yesterday
that U.S. diplomats told him he and his four-man crew would be released
"maybe in a day, maybe two."
Capt. Tabb Thoms said he understood that he and his crew would be put
back aboard their vessel - the supply ship Frieda K - and "escorted to the
Soviet maritime boundary."
But Thoms said Soviet officials still have not told him personally whether
the sailors willbe freed from detention in Urelik in far northeastern Siberia.
"They tell us very little and they won't tell us when we can go home,"
Thoms said in a telephone conversation. "They will tell us nothing about
In Washington, the State Department said yesterday it has lodged a formal
protest against Soviet handling of the case and expected the seamen would
be released within 48 hours.
Thomas told the AP that soviet officials have been asking them to sign
papers acknowledging that they were in Soviet waters.
The vessel was due in Nome, Alaska, last Wednesday and was reported
Court delays double execution
STARKE, Fla. - A federal appeals court yesterday granted a temporary,
stay of execution to murderer James Henry, who said "guilt or innocence" i
not an issue. The court also considered the appeal of child-killer Aubrey
Adams, scheduled to die today.
It would have been the first double execution in 19 years.
A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta
gave Henry a 24-hour reprieve until 7 a.m. tomorrow and said it would hear
legal arguments at noon today.
Yesterday, Gov. Bob Graham refused the Rev. Jesse,Jackson's request of,
clemency for Henry. Coretta Scott King, in a letter to the governor, also
sought clemency on grounds that Henry's conviction was racially motivated.
"The message that there would be no clemency was very clear," said
Steve Hull, press secretary for Graham, who has signed 86 death warrants
since taking office in 1979.
In double executions, state corrections officials bring the first inmate into
the death chamber, execute him and store the body in a small room nearby,
said spokesman Vernon Bradford. The second inmate then in brought into
the chamber, executed, and the bodies are sent to Gainsville for autopsies.
The same executioner is used for both electrocutions and paid a total of $300,
Dollar skyrockets in Europe
LONDON - The dollar soared to unprecendented heights on European
currency markets yesterday, leaving dealers mystified as it set new records
against the British, French, Italian, and Belgian currencies.
Currency traders across Europe could not explain the dollar's upward
spiral. Karl Otto Poehl, president of the West German central bank, warned
that European banks were virtually powerless to halt the rise of the U.S.
"The U.S. dollar is currently grossly overvalued, some would say by about
a third, and some substantial correction of its value cannot be long delayed
beyond the presidential election in November," warned Dr. David Owen,
leader of Britain's Social Democratic Party.
High American interest rates between 1 and 8 percentage points above
European rates - provide the basis for the dollar's strength, but analysts
said its current performance defies rational explanation.
Gromyko arrives in New York
NEW YORK - Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko arrived in New
York yesterday under heavy security for a visit that will include meetings
with President Reagan and Walter Mondale and an address to the U.N.
Gromyko was to meet Sept. 27 in New York with Mondale, the Democratic
candidate for president, and Secretary of State George Shultz before
traveling to Washington the next day for talks with Reagan.
Mondale pledged to be "tough" in his talks with Gromyko and vowed not to
attempt to conduct foreign policy on behalf of the president.
His return to New York was marked by effort from both Washington and
Moscow to revive U.S.-Soviet relationships, which dropped to a low since the
Soviets walked out of the intermediate nuclear weapons talks in Geneva last
Reagan said last Tuesday he invited the Soviet official to the White House
to ease "suspicion and hostility" and secure a "safer world" by trying to
control nuclear weapons proliferation.
