.UNITED NATIONS (AP) -
Secretary of State George Shultz and
Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei
Gromyko, both smiling and relaxed,
held "comprehensive and broad" talks
yesterday as a prelude to Gromyko's
meeting with President Reagan
Decisions on improving relations
between the superpowers, such as a
resumption of arms control talks, ap-
parently were not made here. U.S. of-
ficials had cautioned ahead of time
against expecting any breakthroughs.
But the manner of both men indicated
positive mood had been established
for the president's meeting with
Gromyko at the White House, which will
be Reagan's first with a top Kremlin
leader since taking office.
The Shultz-Gromyko talks, held at the
U.S. Mission to the United Nations,
lasted nearlky three hours.
A SMILING Gromyko emerged to tell
reporters that the talks initiated here
would be concluded with Reagan
tomorrow and thathe couldn't answer
any questions until then.
"We have discussed many
questions," he said. "Sinice there are
more discussions to come in
Washington, the discussions were not
concluded, not full, and please don't
ask me any questions."
Shultz emerged a few minutes later
and told reporters he and Gromyko had
"just completed a comprehensive and
broad conversation" to serve a a
background session for the meeting
with the president. .
"We look forward to welcoming
(Gromyko) when he comes to
Washington on Friday," Shultz said.
He also declined to answer any
But officials said beforehand that Sh-
ultz and Gromyko would discuss
prospects for resuming arms control
negotiations and that Shultz would also
seek Gromyko's reaction to.Reagan's
plan for "a better working relation-
ship" between the superpowers.

Court rules U.S. need not pay
to desegregate Chicago schools
CHICAGO-The federal government does not have to pay $103.8 million t
help desegregate Chicago's public schools during the 1984-85 school year, an
appeals court ruled yesterday.
The three-judge panel of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a '
decision by the U.S. District Court, saying the lower court "abused its
discretion" in ordering the payment.
U.S. District Judge Milton Shadur ruled in June that the government had
reneged on a promise, implied in a 1980 consent decree, to provide'
desegregation funds. That decree required the Board of Education to come
up with a plan for integrating the nation's third-largest school system.
However, the appeals court panel said, "we find that the district court
erred in concluding that the government acted in bad faith by failing to.
request congressional appropriations for the board, and by deciding not to'
reprogram funds for use by the board.
"Furthermore, we find erroneous the district court's determination of bad
faith in the government's decision not to provide direct grants for school'.
Congress moves to hike security
WASHINGTON-Congress moved swiftly to approve Reagan ad:-,,
ministration requests for more money to fight terrorism yesterday as some,
Democrats recommended a State Department shakeup in the wake of last.'.
week's fatal blast at the U.S. Embassy annex in Beirut.
No names were mentioned. But Ronald Spiers, undersecretary of state for,,
management, said he is responsible for embassy security and added, "I am
not looking for people to blame."
The committee gave unanimous voice-vote approval to the ad
ministration's request for $366 million to upgrade security at embassies and-
U.S. Information Agency posts throughout the world, although some mem-
bers accused the administration of failing to make good use of money it had
already been granted for the purpose.
Test predicts cancer survival
BOSTON-A test that spots specific defects in the genes of leukemia vic-
tims can be used to determine how long they will live and what kind of
treatment will help them most, a study concludes.
Seemingly identical forms of cancer may actually result from differen,
genetic malfunctions, and a person's outlook can vary accordingly. The new
work is part of an effort to identify these genetic flaws and see how they are
related to survival.
Researchers from the University of Minnesota Medical School found 17
different genetic defects in adults with acute nonlymphicytic leukemia, and.
they discovered that three different kinds are closely linked with how long.
the patients will live.
The test, called high-resolution chromosome analysis, was developed by
Dr. Jorge Yunis. He and colleagues described the latest results in Thur-
sday's New England Journal of Medicine.
The doctors discovered that almost all of these leukemia victims have.
breaks, rearrangements and other defects in the chromosomes of their bone
marrow cells. Chromosomes are long strings of genes that carry all the in-..
formation of human inheritance. Each cell contains 23 pairs of
Syria, Libya threaten Jordan
Hard-line Syria and Libya yesterday threatened to punish Jordan for
breaking the ranks of Arab solidarity and resuming diplomatic relations
But the Egyptian government hailed the bold action of Jordan's King
Hussein as a step toward bringing peace to the Middle East and solving the
Syria's government-controlled press said the Jordanian decision, announ-
ced Tuesday night, was "dangerous" and vowed that Syria would take
Libya called for an Arab boycott against Jordan in retaliation for what the
Libyan news agency called "a treacherous stab in the back to the Arab
The Syrian government newspaper Tishrin said Syria "has the means to
punish those who violate Arab summit resolutions," including the 1979 Arab
League decision to break relations with Egypt because it signed a peace
treaty with Israel.
The Jordanian action was an important break in the Arab front against
Egypt-the largest and most powerful Arab country. It also was a victory
for President Hosni Mubarak who insisted he would not sacrifice Egypt's
peace with Israel in order to regain membership in the Arab world.
F.B.I. links terrorist attacks
NEW YORK-A terrorist group using different names may be responsible
for a powerful explosion at the South African consulate in New York as well
as 13 other bombing attacks, including one on the U.S. capitol last fall, the
FBI said yesterday.
The 12:23 a.m. explosion rocked a 33-stork skyscraper in Manhattan,
caused extensive damage to seven floors, and devastated the 12th floor that
housed the South African consulate.
No one was injured in the explosion.
A group calling itself the Guerrilla Resistance claimed responsibility for
yesterday's blast. Kenneth Walton, deputy assistant director of the FBI, said
the group is an American terrorist organization protesting apartheid in
No one has been killed or injured in the 13 other blasts in the New York
area and in Washington since December, 1982.

GOMBERG House began to fight
back. On Monday the House produced
"The Voice," a newsletter from the
"Gromberg Underground." The Voice
attacked Antieau for trying to censor
"So you thought you all left your
mothers at home," it said. "Fear not . .
. Mary Antieau has decided to become
our moral guardian."
With the stage set, the Gomberg of-
ficers entered Antieau's office. The
clock read five o'clock.
"No one lost, no one won," announced
student Tony Primak, "It is
ultimately up to us in using our best
judgement . . . there will be a
reevaluati i of the t-shirt."
"I was v- y impressed with the way
she mangey the meeting. Her point of
view was not to be our moral mother,
but to, enlighten us about some things I
was not aware about," explained
The "things" the Council was not
aware of were the possibility of offen-
ding alumni from the house, people who
have, experienced family drinking
problems, and student's who don't
"The representation of the house may
have been too one dimensional," added
The result of this meeting, however,
does not mean the House cannot refer to

important thing," added Litchman.
Antieau also sang praises for Gom-

Government leaders are positive
people, and showed good judgement,"
