FBI break
MIAMI (AP) - The FBI arrested
eight people yesterday in what it called
a plot by exiled businessman to
assassinate Honduran President
Roberto Suazo and take over that Cen-
tral American nation's government in a
coup financed by cocaine profits.
Joseph Corless, special agent in
charge of the FBI's Miami office, said
the suspects were rightists
economically and politically.
"I BELIEVE they were just in-
terested in putting in a man favorable
to them," Corless told reporters.
In Washington, FBI Director William
Webster said the bureau learned of the
alleged plot last July from a U.S.
citizen and placed an undercover FBI
agent in the scheme as one of the
Webster said the FBI had seized 760
pounds of cocaine Sunday at a remote
airstrip in southern Florida. The drugs.
which Webster said are worth $10.3
million wholesale, were to be used to
finance the overthrow, according to a

Students at the University of
Colorado yesterday defeated a referen-
dum asking their health service to
stockpile cyanide pills in the event of a
nuclear war.
Fifty-eight percent of the student
body voted against the referendum pat-
terned after one passed recently at
Brown University in Rhode Island. The
idea of suicide pills was developed to
make people think of nuclear war as a
form of suicide and to raise con-
sciousness about the issue, said Brown
organizer Jason Salzman.
"THE MAIN problem was we didn't
get the word out," said Colorado
student David West who co-sponsored
the bill. "Most people didn't understand
that there weren't going to be any pills.
We weren't as well organized as we
should have been."
Student body president Jill Hanauer
said, "I don't believe it's a reflection

that students aren't against the freeze.
Two favorite words for this referendum
were 'pessimistic' and 'cynical.'
You can't take Boulder's liberalism
for granted."
Hanauer said they will continue to
move ahead and hope to put it on
another ballot in the spring.
"IN A SENSE we won, however,
because we got people to think about
it," she said.
No other schools have yet succeeded
in putting a cyanide pill referendum on
their school's ballot but Columbia
University is considering a proposal
and the Michigan Student Assembly
will decide in two weeks whether to add
a referendum to April's ballot.
The referendum would be non-
binding, therefore the University would
not have to act upon it.
HEALTH Services Coordinator
Caesar Briefer said the University has
no intentions of following through on the
bill if it were passed.

It's not morally or ethically possible,"
Briefer said.
"We're into life, not death. Stockpiling
pills is contravention to any medical
ethics that I know of."
Brown's health service has not
stocked pills even though the students
passed their referendum, he added.
As another way of raising con-
sciousness and challenging voters to
think about the nuclear movement,
students at Brown have urged colleges
nationwide to participate in rallies
today. Nineteen colleges, including
Ohio State University, Harvard, Nor-
thwestern, and Brown are expected to
stage rallies, said Brown spokesman
John Bonifaz.
The University will not participate
because the rally falls too close to last
week's visit by Democratic presidential
candidate Walter Mondale which drew
such a large crowd, said LSA senior
Karen Mysliwiec, spokesperson for
Students Against Nuclear Suicide on

challenging the proposal's con-
stitutionality. She said she "didn't see
much of a point in the city suing" if
other parties file suit. She said having
to contest the free zone would be a
waste of taxpayers' money.
However, Epton 'said filing a suit
won't do any good against the proposal.
"I think the suit would be thrown out of
court," he said, explaining that the law
would only restrict classified research
and that is not protected by the first
Epton also said until the proposal is
determined to be constitutional, not ap-
pointing any committee members
would be against the law.
All the other councilmembers contac-
ted last night said they would agree to
wait to appoint commisson members
until a ruling on constitutionality is
handed down.
Also yesterday, Citizens for a
Nuclear Free Ann Arbor, the group
pushing for the free zone proposal,
released a study showing that the city
would not be affected economically by
the free zone.

The study stated that nuclear
weapons research amounted to less
than one-tenth of one percent of the
total University research budget and
that only five research firms in the city
have contracts related to nuclear
weaponry. The study said that not a
single one of these five companies
depends on these contracts for its only
source of revenue.
The study was conducted by mem-
bers of the group with the assistance of
Econ. Prof. Thomas Weisskopf.

Webster said the conspirators plan-
ned to have Suazo killed and to use the
resulting civil unrest to take over the
Honduran government between Oct. 15
and Nov. 15,1984.
THE COMPLAINT alleged that the
conspirators plotted to acquire
weapons, explosives, night-vision
equipment, tanks and airplanes and
other military gear to be used in the
assassination and overthrow.
Webster said the FBI undercover
agent was to be paid $300,000 for the
assassination of Suazo, with $100,000 of
that to be paid in advance.
