Ed Hewett, senior fellow of the Brookings Institution, talks about Soviet economic affairs at Rackham Auditorium
yesterday. Looking to the future, he said, increasing oil prices due to a rise in production costs will worsen the already
depressed Soviet economy.
Experts discuss Soviet instability

A closed meeting yesterday between
student leaders and top University of-
ficials failed to resolve any of the con-
flicts dividing the two groups over the
proposed student code for nonacademic
conduct, according to Scott Page,
president of the Michigan Student
MSA leaders remained steadfast in
their conviction that they will not
negotiate on the proposed guidelines
unless administrators agree not to
revoke MSA's veto power over the code.
MSA also asked that it be allowed to
approve the code and its judicial
system as one document.
BUT administrators, while not giving
in to any of those conditions, planned
to present a formal proposal for
negotiations at next Tuesday's MSA
"They couldn't accept our restric-
tions and we said we would not enter
negotiations without them," Page said.
President Harold Shapiro last night

said administrators have not discussed
what they will say Tuesday and that he
has not decided how he would like to
handle the process.
BUT HE added that there is no way-
the University administration can
guarantee that the Board of Regents
will not bypass MSA.
"And I personally don't want to go in-
to negotiations and close down any op-
tions for actions," he said, reiterating
his statements in a response to MSA's
But the meeting "kept alive" the
possibility that negotiations can begin,
Page said. MSA would like to analyze
the need for a code as well as assess
faculty, student, and administration in-
terests in the guidelines, Page said.
THE LAST two student assemblies
have refused to discuss the code. Next
Tuesday's proposal will be the ad-
ministration's first formal offer to
negotiate with this year's MSA.

The Soviet Union's strength can not be measured ac-
curately, a representative from the Department of State said
Speaking before an audience of about 200 people at
Rackham Auditorium, Paul Globe told the audience not to
underestimate the power of the Soviet Union.
"THE SOVIET Union is never as strong or as weak as it'
appears, he said. "We must be careful not to project onto the
Soviet Union the way they would react according to the way

we would react," he added.
Goble and other experts on the Soviet Union participated in
the Michigan Briefing on Soviet Affairs, a forum which
examined topics ranging from the current political climate to
U.S.-Soviet trade.
And throughout the conference, experts maintained that
the Soviet Union's political climate, controlled by elderly
leaders, is one of uncertainty and fearfulness.
ACCORDING TO Goble, these leaders "are unlikely to put
young men in power because they would be announcing their
political deaths."

1,000 students protest'

on Illinois State

F. 5.

Sorority members sit atop the Sigma Chi fraternity house yesterday looking down on the annual Derby Days activities.
Sororities compete in beer chugging and other contests to benefit the Special Olympics.

In a scene reminiscent of the 1960s,
police officers dressed in riot gear and
carrying canisters of tear gas charged
into a crowd of about 1000 protesters -
mostly Illinois State University Studen-
ts - yesterday morning in Normal, Ill.
Three protesters were arrested.
Five were hospitalized, but their in-
juries were not. serious and city of--
ficials estimated that $10,000 in
damages was done to public property in
the city of Normal.
peacefully around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday
evening when about 100 students mar-
ched to city hall to protest city ordinan-
ces restricting public gatherings and
the sale of beer.
Normal's City Council passed an or-
dinance in June requiring a permit for
any gathering of over 300 people where
beer is served. The ordinance also
called for one security guard for every
100 students.
THE COUNCIL also passed another

ordinance which barred the transpor-
tation and sale of beer kegs after 10
"There was nothing violent at this
point, said Tony Parker, an IS'U
student. "People were chanting things
like 'fuck (Normal police chief John)
Lehr. We want beer.' But everyone was
pretty much behaving themselves," he
And by about 9 p.m., the crowd
dispersed and the protest appeared to
be over.
BUT ACCORDING to Parker, a
group of students bought a keg of beer
and staged a sit in which blocked traffic
on Interstate 51. Other students were
then lured to the protest.
The excitement of the protest was
fueled by a live broadcast by a Peoria
television station.
"Shortly after they went off the air,
about a dozen students began throwing
beer bottles at the police and at City
Hall," Parker said.

THIRTY STATE police officers were
then called lh to reinforce the 50 local
officers already cn the scene. After an
appeal by university president Lloyd
Watkins to end the protest, police began
driving the students back to campus
with billy clubs.
Police fired tear gas cannisters from
on top of City Hall as students chanted
."Kent State, Kent State" and pelted the
police with rocks.
Most of the protesters left, said state
police officer John Manning, "although
some stayed behind and threw the can-
nisters back at the police," he said.
Later, at about 2 a.m. 50 students
staged a sit-in which blocked traffic in
front of Normal Theater..
They were driven back by police.
Yesterday morning's demonstration
was the result of tensions which have
grown throughout this school year.
"About 20 students were arrested every
weekend for carrying cups of beer in
public," said Parker. "The police were
really cracking down on the law."

Russell, postmaster of Roy for over 20 years. "Just give me
the ammunition, and I'll go down to the governor's office
and find out" why Roy's not on the maps, she told City
Council. "Somewhere, somehow, we've got to get to
someone and tell them that Roy exists and has since 1873,"
said Russell.

granted after a man claiming to be Thomas' father made
several calls to the jail to say his daughter had been injured
in an auto accident. The man left daily messages about her
condition and asked jail officials to tell Thomas his sister
had died. Quinn said Thomas broke down when he was
given the news. On Sept. 18, when Thomas failed to return,
jail officials learned that Thomas' sisters were all fine and
his father had not talked to his son since he was imprisoned
last June. Thomas was eligible for work release and was
