"If neither MSA nor the Michigan
Daily were here on campus, it would be
a pretty happy day for the ad-
ministration," said Michigan Student
Assembly President Scott Page yester-
day at Campus Meet the Press in the
Kuenzel Room of the Michigan Union.
Bill Spindle, Daily editor-in-chief ap-
peared with Page at the forum.
"Both MSA and the Daily keep an eye
on the University, and make sure the
student viewpoint is heard," Page said,
explaining that both organizations
prevent the administration from
achieving goals, such as the adopting
code for non-academic conduct, without
MSA is unique because it is the only
organization on campus which can in-
fluence policy decisions and is
representative of all the University's
students, Page said.
Spindle said the Daily is unique
because it is "the Gnly objective news
organization on campus that's indepen-
dent of the University."
Spindle and Page, however, differed
on whether or not their organizations
can influence University policy.
MSA IS planning to meet with
Veronica Latta Smith and Neal
Nielsen, the candidates who won
Tuesday's regental elections. "With
convincing arguments, they and the
rest of the regents will listen to us,"
But Spindle disagreed. "Although the
regents will listen to student grievances
on some issues, on the real fundamen-
tals they stop listening and you're just
beating your head against the wall," he
said, explaining that the code is one of
those "fundamental issues."
Both Spindle and Page agreed that
student apathy is a problem on campus.
TODAY'S students ask "what can
society do for me?" instead of "what
can I contribute to society?" Spindle
"Students today are more concerned
with their own economic welfare than
with social issues," Page said, adding
that human rights, affirmative action
and the environment are issues which
didn't get the proper amount of student
attention in this year's election.
The code is another issue which just
isn't getting enough student attention,
Page said. "A lot of students are cop-
ping out by not taking time to be aware
of the code issue," he said.
If more students read the code, more
students would protest it, Page said.
If you're done with your homework,
it's much easier to go to the bars than
read the code," he added.

threaten U.S. again
BEIRUT, Lebanon (UPI) - The fun-
damentalist Islamic Jihad terrorist
group yesterday vowed to attack
FRIDAY, NOV. 9
Prof. Alan Wald, LSA:
"The Responsibility of University
Faculty to Participate in Movements
of Social Change,,
Lunch is available at $1 00
Americans and U.S. targets in Lebanon
and promised "the region will be put on
The threat came as the Lebanese
Cabinet named an eight-man armed
forces delegation to talks with Israel on
the withdrawal of Israel's 10,000 troops
from southern Lebanon.
In a telephone call to a western news
agency, an Arabic-speaking male who
said he represented the pro-Iranian
Islamic Jihad condemned the
negotiations, scheduled to begin today.
The radical movement Monday said
any group negotiating with Israel would
be put on a "black list."
Israel maintains that the Israeli-
armed South Lebanon Army should
remain behind after any withdrawal to
police a buffer zone north of the Israeli
border while United Nations troops
patrol another zone parallel to it.

Soviet minister Ustinov missing
MOSCOW-The Soviet Union marked the 67th anniversary of the Russian
Revolution yesterday with a conciliatory overture to President Reagan and
a military parade notable for the absence of ailing Defense Minister Dmitri
The absence of Ustinov, 76, last seen Sept. 27, underlined the uncertainty
over an aging Kremlin leadership that includes President Konstantin Cher-
nenko, 73, Premier Nikolai Tjkhonov, 79, and Foreign Minister Andrei
Politburo member and Moscow party boss Victor Grishin told reporters in
Red Square that Ustinov had a sore throat. A foreign ministry spokesman
also said that Ustinov was "unwell."
Dme diplomat said he believed ustinov must be seriously ill because he
also missed a Kremlin ceremony Tuesday evening.
President Konstantin Chermenko was also the subject of speculation when
he was not seen in public for nearly two months during the summer.
Top officials purged in India
NEW DELHI, India-The government removed five top-ranking police -
and intelligence officers from their posts yesterday in a mounting security
purge resulting from the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
A leading Indian newspaper reported, meanwhile, that Gandhi's killers.
had planned to assassinate her son, Rajiv, alongside the prime minister but
were frustrated by his unexpected absence from the Gandhi compound at
the time of the shooting last Wednesday.
In the security shakeup yesterday, the government replaced the domestic
intelligence network's chief, R. Kapoor, and deputy chief, Pattan Sehgal,
and several other senior intelligence officials were transferred. Authorities
also suspended three top New Delhi police officers who were in charge of the
prime minister's security.
Government sources said more dismissals were likely, UNI reported.
Many Sikhs have been removed from sensitive security posts since the
assassination, but the five purged yesterday were all Hindus.
No new unrest has been reported among Sikh soldiers, even though the
Gandhi assassination ignited a savage Hindu backlash that left more than
1,000 Sikhs dead. Unofficial reports put the death toll as high as 2,000 in New
Delhi alone, but authorities acknowledge only 601 deaths here.
Crosswinds delay shuttle launch
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.-Killer crosswinds, packing enough power to
rip the fuel tank and booster rockets from the space shuttle in itsclimb to or-
bit, forced a one-day postponement yesterday in the start of Discovery's
satellite rescue mission.
Officials rescheduled the liftoff for 7:15 a.m. EST today but that, too,
depended on the capricious winds. Air Force weathermen were told to
monitor the winds with a series of high-altitude balloon flights, the last only
two hours before the new launch time.
The astronauts must begin heir unprecedented pursuit of the two stranded
satellites by Sunday or their mission will have to be delayed 45 days when the
satellites' orbital path again puts them in the right position for rescue.
The problem yesterday was that a low pressure trough moving through the
area created winds of varying directions high above the oceanside shut-
tleport. Winds were only 10 mph on the surface, but they increased to over
hurricane force at an altitude of 30,000 feet.
It was only the fifth time in the shuttle program that astronauts were in
their seats waitirgg to blast away from Earth when they were told the launch
was scrubbed. Two of the previous scrubs involved Discovery.
Smoking reduces heart's
pumping power, research says
BOSTON-Cigarette smoking, a well-known contributor to heart attacks,
also causes a rare but lethal disease that weakens the heart's pumping
power, researchers have found.
The study found that in young men, at least, smoking causes car-
diomyopathy, a condition that results in heart failure and is often fatal.
Exactly how smoking does this is still not clear. However, Dr. Arthur Har-
tz of the Medical College of Wisconsin speculates that the nicotine or carbon
monoxide in the smoke somehow poisons the heart.
"It probably causes cardiomyopathy with a direct toxic effect on the heart
muscle that weakens it," he said in an interview.
Other research has shown that men who smoke are two to three times
more likely than non-smokers to die from heart attacks. Heart attacks
usually occur when the heart's own blood supply is temporarily blocked, and
a section of heart muscle dies from lack of oxygen.
Court clears way for execution
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court yesterday cleared the way for
the execution today of Timothy Palmes, convicted of killing a Jacksonville,
Fla., store owner in 1976.
Palmes, 37, was scheduled to die by noon EST in Florida's electric chair.
The high court, by a 7-2 vote, refused to postpone the execution to give
Palme's lawyers more time to pursue appeals.
Dissenting were Justices Thurgood Marshall and William Brennan, who,
oppose the death penalty.
Palmes was convicted of stabbing James Stone 18 times on Oct. 4, 1976,
before Stones' body was loaded into a wooden box and dropped into a river.
On Tuesday, a federal appeals court postponed Palmes' scheduled yester-
day execution to give his lawyers time to go to the Supreme Court. The ap-
peals court stay expires at 10 a.m. today.
Another convicted Florida killer, Chester Maxwell, also had been
scheduled to die yesterday. But the Florida Supreme Court granted Maxwell
an indefinite stay of execution.
