However, Kinder was surprised that
Mondale didn't drive home the Central
American issue.
"I was surprised he didn't spend
more time on Reagan's admission
about the CIA and the assassination
book, he said. Despite that, political
science Prof. Jack Walker said that
Mondale controlled much of the debate.
"Mondale got the debate to focus on
issues he's strong on (particularly ar-
ms control) and Reagan allowed him to
do that," Walker said.
"I'm surprised that Reagan didn't
make more of Grenada. I thought he'd
try to take more credit for Greneda,"
he said.
ALL IN ALL, the debate contained
few surprises for the professors, though
Campbell said he was disappointed that
more time wasn't spent on economic
foreign policy.
"Nobody asked the questions that got
at it," he said.

WARSAW, Poland (AP) - Poland's
Roman Catholic Church said yesterday
that it feared for the life of a kidnapped
pro-Solidarity priest, and government
spokesman Jerzy Urban asserted that
the abduction was aimed at under-
mining the authorities.
The church also said there were in-
dications that the kidnappers had
political motives.
The whereabouts or condition of the
Rev. Jerzy Popieluszko were not
known, and no one had claimed respon-
sibility for his abduction, which oc-
curred Friday in northern Poland.
KESTON COLLEGE, an institution
near London that monitors religious af-
fairs in Eastern Europe, reported
yesterday the Popieluszko had received
numerous death threats in recent
weeks. Solidarity leaders confirmed the
report.
The Catholic episcopate, in its first
comment on the priest's disappearan-
ce, said it "brings deep concern."
"On the one hand there is fear about
his life and on the other there is fear
that kidnapping may become a method
of political strife in our country," said a
statement issued by the episcopate in
Warsaw. "The information we have
about the circumstances of the kidnap-
ping indicate that the culprits acted for
political motives."
POPIELUSZKO, 37, is one of the
Polish clergy's most outspoken ad-
vocates of the now-outlawed Solidarity
labor union and had been the target of
frequent government attacks for his
pro-Solidarity sermons.
In Washington, State Department
spokesman John Hughes voiced con-

cern over the kidnapping and expressed
"the strong hope that the Polish gover-
nment will ensure Popieluszko's speedy
release." Hughes said he had no infor-
mation on who might be responsible for
the kidnapping.
Polish government spokesman Urban
said police had received "signals from
the population" that Popieluszko was
seen alive after the kidnapping, but had
not been able to establish the identity of
the kidnappers or to determine
Popieluszko's whereabouts.
URBAN, who said he was speaking in
an unofficial capacity, dismissed as
"sensational" allegations that the
authorities had been involved in the
disappearance of Popieluszko.
The kidnapping "is a carefully timed
provocation aimed against us," Urban
said. "I cannot say at the moment who
is responsible, but most emphatically
one should think. about who stands to
gain from this affair and make political
capital out of it."
A senior Solidarity adviser said the
kidnapping was similar to at least three
other abductions in the Torun area this
year, and confirmed reports that an an-
ti-Solidarity "terrorist group" had been
operating in the region.
"This kind of terrorist group could be
a part of a political game which we
don't know," said the adviser,
Bronislaw Geremek.
Solidarity activists said they would
press authorities to explain the priest's
disappearnace. They organized daily
prayer sessions at factories and round-
the-clock vigil at St. Stanislaw Kostka
Church in Warsaw, where Popieluszko
served.

Prof attacks 'ugly student' contest

Campbell did point out that the topic
was briefly discussed during an ex-
change over the Simpson-Mazzoli bill
4 which deals with economic conditions
in Mexico and Latin America as
# reasons for immigration, but he said
that discussion will probably influence
few voters.
a.
"Unless you're passionately concer-
ned (with the Simpson-Mazzoli bill) you
probably didn't pay any attention to it,"
Campbell said. "I don't think many
people will vote on the basis of Simpson-
Mazzoli."
Most of the professors agreed that
Reagan performed pretty much as he
always does.
" That was Ronald Reagan all right,"
'Kinder said. "Reagan sounded the
same as he does in the press conferen-
ces. Reagan's sounded like that for the
last thirty years."
One thing the debate did accomplish
was to show the differences between the
candidates Walker said.
Mondale will be on campus this af-
ternoon to speak in front of the
Graduate library. The rally is scheduled
to begin at 1 p.m. Gary Hart will also
appear with Mondale.

Holtz. "Now they have a way to identify themselves
nationally. They see this as a very positive thing. It is ex-
citing and puts them on the map."
Jeff Boyer, a junior from Odnora, is president of the 40-
member IUP Lobby to Prevent Nuclear War, which he called
the campus' only "activist" group. The French major called
the students "quite conservative" and the ugly phenomenon
ridiculous.
"There are more important things to be doing," said
Boyer, who last spring engineered a campus "die-in" to
promote a bilateral nuclear weapons freeze. "I'd like to see
us on the map for something like the smartest students."

BOYDER SAID unlike in the '60s, students "aren't con-
fronted with something."
"Their brothers and fathers aren't off somewhere being
killed or killing," he said. 'People know what nuclear war
can do. But when confronted with the word extinction, they
might ponder it. But it scares them.
"So they build a wall around themselves and pretend
nothing is wrong. It's not just plain apathy so much as people
just don't want to be bothered. They think, 'We made it this
far, so why worry?"
Boyer said street protests might return if U.S. troops were
sent to Central America, but contended the fast-paced arms
race could well lead to nuclear war.

Bell's National Institute of Education

Monroe County Prosecutor Ronald.
Waicukauski gave this account of even-
ts based on investigators' reports:
Zook attended a party at the frater-
nity at about 2 a.m. Sunday. Outside the
house, a pickup truck pulled up and
almost struck Zook, who in anger broke
a mirror on the truck.
ZOOK AND some fraternity mem-

bers got into a fight, during which
Zook's wallet apparently fell from his
pocket and was recovered by members
of the fraternity.
Some friends eventually got Zook to
leave and took him back to an apar-
tment complex where he was staying.
Zook returned to the party armed
with an axe handle and became in-
volved in another fight, inside the
fraternity house, and again friends took
him back to the apartment. Zook then
apparently slipped out through a win-
dow and walked back to the fraternity.
