security men, UNI said. The second,
identified as sub-inspector Deant Singh,
was shot and wounded, and a third
guard, who did not fire any shots, was
arrested, UNI said. Earlier reports
said the sub-inspector had been killed
and the constable wounded.
USTINOV, WHO described the scene
inside the Gandhi compound as "total
chaos," said he was told by a high-
ranking security official that one of the
Sikhs was a longtime bodyguard who
had been moved from the post as a
security risk "but she missed him and
asked for him back again."
The Ustinov camera crew was
waiting in the Gandhi garden, about 80
yards away, and heard but did not see
the attack.
Several hours after the shooting, an
unidentified telephone caller told The
Associated Press in New Delhi: "We
have taken our revenge! Long live the
Sikh religion!"
Man robbed
A 26-year-old Ypsilanti man was robbed
at gunpoint on the 500 block of East
Liberty at 12:00 a.m. Tuesday morning,
Ann Arbor Police Sgt. Jan Sumala said
The victim was sitting in his car on
the street waiting for a friend. A man
approached the car, and asked the vic-
tim for a light for a cigarette. The man
then produced a handgun, and deman-
ded money, Suomala said.
The victim attempted to leave the
car, but was struck in the face several
times with the butt of the gun, Suomala
The thief left the scene with an un-
determined amount of cash, a wallet, a
watch, a ring, and a coat. The victim
was treated for minor injuries at Beyer
Hospital in Ypsilanti, and was released
a short time later. The incident is
currently under police investigation,
Suomala said.
Pot stolen
A small amount of marijuana, stereo
equipment and a small amount of cash
were stoen during a break-in on the 600
block of East Madison, Ann Arbor
Police Sgt. Jan Suomala said yester-
The break-in occurred sometime
between 6 p.m. Sunday and 1 a.m. Mon-
day, Suomala said. The intruder gained
entry into the house by removing a
screen from a window, he said.
The items were valued at ap-
proximately $105, Suomala said.

ASKED WHO he was, the man said:
"This is the action of the entire Sikh
sect." He then hung up.
The fallen prime minister was rushed
three miles to the All-India Institute of
Medical Sciences, India's best hospital,
where a team of doctors worked on her
fruitlessly until 2:30 p.m., putting her
on a heart and lung bypass machine
and giving her blood transfusions.
Hindus enraged by the assassination
of Gandhi took to the streets of the
capital armed with staves, rocks and
firebombs, and more than 200 people
were reported injured in northern India
as news of her death swept through the
POLICE SAID at least 42 shops and
117 vehicles were set ablaze by the
rioting mobs, and at least 236 injuries
were reported. Witnesses said rioters
stopped vehicles, pulled Sikhs out and
beat them.
In Washington, President Reagan
visited the Indian embassy hours after
Ghandi's death to express his "shock,
revulsion and grief" (over the
assassination. )
"We have lost a friend," Reagan told
Ambassador Shankar Bajpai.
Reagan named Secretary of State
George Shultz to head the U.S.
delegation to Gandhi's funeral later this

physicist Edward Teller urged the
United States yesterday to establish a
colony on the moon in 10 years to obtain
continuous, unimpeded observation of
the Earth for "peacekeeping."
"It would be nice to have a dozen
people on the moon as soon as
possible," Teller told scientists and
engineers at a conference focusing on
lunar bases and space activities in the
next century.
"I believe that surveillance of the
Earth, permanent continuous sur-
veillance that is hard to interfere with,
is an extremely important question -
important to us, important for the in-
ternational community, important for
peacekeeping," he said.
Teller, a Hungarian-born scientist of-
ten called the "father of the hydrogen
bomb" - a term to which he takes ex-
ception - said there have been
proposals to guarantee observation
facilities by treaties.
"Treaties not only can be broken,
treaties have been broken," said Teller,
who headed the team that developed
the hydrogen bomb in the 1950s. "It's
better to have observation stations

which are not easy to interfere with."
Lunar colonizers should create
moons for the moon by rocketing two
huge boulders into orbit, Teller said.
"I would like to take the biggest chunks
that I can get off the moon and put
them into lunar orbit," he added.
Those "chunks" would serve as plat-
forms for Earth monitoring instrumen-
"If the moon and these two additional
satellites are available for observation,
then we can have a continuous watch on
all of the Earth," the physicist said.
Teller suggested that 12 people, ser-
ving up to three months, should make
up the initial colony. "At least half of
them coming back to Earth should get
Nobel Prizes, and pretty soon we would
be out of Nobel Prizes," said Teller.
The main practical result of a lunar
base, Teller said, is to use it as a station
for refueling rockets with oxygen and
hydrogen for trips farther into space.
Hydrogen, not yet found in abundan-
ce on the moon, might have to be
delivered from Earth. Oxygen for
propellant can be "boiled" with ex-
tremely high heat from the iron oxide
that is moon rocks, Teller said.
