Faculty examines
nuclear free proposal

Duarte, rebels discuss
peace in El Salvador

University faculty members showed
yesterday at the October Senate
Assembly meeting that they hold a
variety of views on the Nuclear Free
Ann Arbor ballot proposal.
The proposal, which could affect a
number of University research projects
if passed, would prohibit the design,
research, and development of nuclear
weapons and related devices within the
Ann Arbor city limits.
'!HE controversial measure which
would establis an amendment to the
Ann A-bor city charter has spurred
debate among community and business
le4ders as well as University officials.
Teassembly invited two faculty
memberto present the different sides
of the issue.
Speaking for the nuclear free zone
was physics Prof. Marc Ross. Ross said
the problem of nuclear war is too
serious to ignore and the free zone or-
diuiance is an important step towards
defusing the arms race.
'aThe problem of controlling nuclear
arms does provide a rationale for this
oidinance," Ross said.
MWE'RE NOT going to, resolve this
problem through presidential
included in the proposal is a provision
fo a committee to investigate all
possible violations of the act. Physics
Prof. Gordon Kane, who presented his

case against the proposal to the assem-
bly, said such a committee would scare
away business from Ann Arbor.
"Why would any business want to
stay in an area where such harassment
is possible?" Kane said.
Kane pointed out that although he is
against the November ballot issue, he
does support arms control.
THE PROBLEM, he said, is with the
composition of the proposal which could
pose a number of ambiguities.
"Some military research is more
beneficial than harmful," Kane said.
He pointed to satellite research, which
he says is more for defensive purposes,
as a potential area which the proposal.
could mistakenly restrict.
"A well meaning but uninformed per-
son could interpret this the wrong
way," Kane said.
Aeronautical engineering Prof.
Robert Howe echoed Kane's comments.
"The basic research used to improve
the aerodynamics-of the B-1 bomber is
the same research that improves the
aerodynamics of a boeing 767," Howe
said. "This could literally prevent us
from doing much of the research we
The assembly did not vote the issue or,
take a political stand. Medical school
Prof. Robert Green said the assembly
decided to look at the proposal because
it could affect the lives of many faculty

LA PALMA, El Salvador (UPI) -
Defying death threats and cheered by
peasants shouting "We want Peace,"
President Jose Napoleon Duarte met in
a mountain church yesterday with six
guerrilla leaders in a dramatic quest to
end five years of civil war.
Duarte called on the rebels to lay
down their arms in return for amnesty
and promised them a place in El
Salvador's Democratic process during
the meeting in La Palma, 43 miles north
of San Salvador in rebel-controlled
Chalatenango province.
"THE EL Salvador that you abant-
doned in 1978 and 1979 is not the same as
in 1984. Our homeland now breathes the
air of liberty," Duarte told the rebels in
an opening statement read to 20,000
people who packed the town plaza.
Guarded only by unarmed Boy Scouts

and Girl Scouts, Duarte led a five-man
delegation into the tiny Sweet Name of
Mary Catholic church for his first face-
to-face encounter with his leftist foes.
The meeting with the six rebel
leaders, including a woman, came on
the fifth anniversary of a coup by
liberal junior officers, who on Oct. 15,
1979 ousted Gen. Carlos Humberto
Romero frm the presidency. The date is
considered the beginning of the civil
war that has claimed 50,000 lives.
"I think just by sitting down it is the
first stage, taking away from the mind
that dialogue is bad," Duarte said:
In his seven-page opening statement
to the rebels, Duarte called for an end
to the war, support for the "Democratic
process based on the principles of the
constitution" and the incorporation of
the guerrillas into the democratic

The group has received a lot of atten-
tion lately. Jonathan Kessler, Leader-
ship and Development Coordinator of
AIPAC (Arab-Israeli Pubic Affair
Committee), was one of the speakers at
Hillel this Sunday.
"I'm very excited about what the
students at the University of Michigan
are doing. The best way for IMPAC to

make a difference is to work in a House
or Senate race. Students have made the
decision th the Illinois race is impor-
tant. I think it will make a difference"
Kessler said.
Senior Susan Wein agrees. Wein at-
tended last Sunday's meeting. "I'm
here to learn how I can get involved and
be a responsible voter."
