., Nicaraguan officials meet
MEXICO CITY (UPI}-Diplomats from the United States
and Nicaragua yesterday opened an eighth round of talks
aimed at easing tensions enflamed by U.S. charges of large-
scale Soviet bloc arms shipments to Managua.
U.S. special envoy Harry Shlaudeman and Nicaraguan
Deputy Foreign Minister Victor Hued Tinoco held the first of
two days of meetings at the Pacific resort of Manzanillo, 325
miles northwest of Mexico City.
A U.S. EMBASSY spokekman in Mexico City said they
would discuss how to reduce tensions recently heightened
when Reagan administration officials said they believed a
Soviet freighter that arrived nearly two weeks ago in
Nicaragua may have been carrying Soviet-made MiG-21 jet-
The officials warned the administration would not tolerate
introduction into the region of the sophisticated aircraft and
later charged Nicaragua was stockpiling high levels of Soviet
bloc arms that exceeded its defensive needs.
Nicarguan Defense Minister Miguel D'Escoto has denied
the freighter was carrying MiGs, but said the Sandinista
government received helicopters and had the right to obtain
"whatever means necessary to defend ourselves against im-
WASHINGTON, which has supported "contra" rebels
fighting to topple the Marxist government in Managua, has
never produced any proof that Nicaragua received MiGs.
Managua said the Reagan administration had leveled the
charges as a pretext for an invasion and declared a full-scale
military alert, which is still in effect.
Lee Johnson, the spokesman for the U.S. Embassy in
Mexico City, said the Manzanillo talks "have not failed" to
produce progress toward improved U.S.-Nicaraguan
relations "though they are proceeding very slowly."
He said U.S. officials in Manzanillo planned to warn the
Nicaraguans about the dangers of buying Soviet-made MiGs
and other sophisticated weapons.
DALLAS (AP) - The Rev. Jesse
Jackson says he is planning to travel
to Nicaragua next month at the in-
vitation of President Daniel Ortega in
hopes of convincing the Reagan ad-
ministration "to turn its attention to
peace rather than to war." During a
news conference following an ap-
pearance at a local church Sunday,
Jackson also said he intends to urge
the Central American country's leftist
Sandinista government "to assume a
strong posture for peace." Jackson
said he was invited to organize the
mission by Ortega.

Public institutions could have a more
difficult time generating private funds,
Cross said, because many of the
organizations that support universities
"discriminate against public in-
stitutions because they have their own
funding sources (the state), but private
schools don't. In this day and age
that makes a difference."
Many believe the University could
become a successful fundraiser if it ex-
ploits its large pool of alumni - more
alumni than any other school in the

Professors, said the problem is
significant, but hasn't caused a mass

Kaplan said. "People are not going

But in order to lure qualified faculty,
the University has to make its starting
salaries competitive with other schools
at the expense of not increasing the
salaries of current faculty.
"We've paid whatever we have to to
get new faculty," said Jack Walker,
associate dean for academic appoin-
tments in LSA. "The salary differences
between new and old faculty will even-
tually cause ill will."

pressed his concern over the growing
"compression" of senior and junior
"Everybody is under pressure to pay
market value," Whitaker said. "This
creates compression of salaries bet-
ween the new people and the people
who've been here for a while."
WALKER SAID that right now the
University has been able to keep many
faculty from accepting higher paying
offers at other schools because of other
benefits such as atmosphere and
quality of the student body.
But schools like the College of
Engineering have had problems attrac-
"Three years ago, this was a terrible
problem," said associate engineering
dean Charles Vest. "At the present
time, I consider us to be competitive."
Though the college has become more
successful at attracting junior faculty,
salary levels for senior faculty are still
low, Vest said.

Averaging only a 5.5 percent increase
over last year, the six vice presidents
didn't fare quite as well as Shapiro.
Last year, they received an average in-
crease of 10 percent.
Vice President for Develop-
ment and University Relations, Jon
Cosovich came closest to Shapiro's
salary, collecting $99,750, just short of
the elusive six-figure crowd.
Vice President for Academic Affairs
and Provost Billy Frye upped his
paycheck from $88,500 to $95,000, a 7.3
percent gain, placing him third among
the executive officers.
The lowest paid vice president again
this year was Vice President for
Student Services, Henry Johnson, who
received a $3,000 raise bringing his an-
nual salary to $63,000.
Of the "over $100,000 club," 29 of the
32 posts related to the University's
medical school. The exceptions are
Shapiro; law school Dean Terrence
Sandalow; who was boosted into six
figures with an eight percent raise to
$105,952; and dental school Dean
Richard Christiansen, who earns
The second highest paid University
employee is Prof. Paul Lichter, chair-
man of the opthamology department,
who earns $136,196. Running a close
third is Chairman of Surgery Jeremiah
Turcotte, drawing a salary of $133,226.
There are no women among the six-
figure earners at the University.
The University's deans averaged a
five percent increase in overall salaries
this year, with two (Sandalow and
Christiansen) reaching over the
The lowest paid dean is newly hired
art Dean Wendell Heers, who earns
For the second year in a row, the
dean who received the greatest salary
increase was the engineering school's
James Duderstadt, who got an 18 per-
cent raise, giving him a salary of
$90,000. Duderstadt received a 12 per-
cent increase last year.
LSA Dean Peter Steiner picked up an
eight percent hike, putting him at
$92,753, third among deans.
The average salary for University
deans is about $78,000.
Faculty salaries increased this year
about 5.3 percent, according to Robert
Sauve, assistant to Vice President
Frye. Sauve said the figure was in the
ballpark, with the actual figure
"varying from unit to unit."
Despite a disappointing season,
Michigan football coach Bo Schem-
bechler's salary was upped to $96,030,
$6,000 more than last year. His

Accident in N.C. kills three
CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C.-Fire broke out aboard a military helicopter as if lif-
ted a heavy piece of artillery during a training mission yesterday, killing
three people and injuring at least 12 others, officials said.
Capt. Norma Stewart of New River Air Station estimated that 20 to 25 people
were aboard the $22 million CH-53E helicopter, the Marines' newest and
largest, which can carry 55 troops or 32,200 pounds.
Rescuers were combing the area in search of other victims, said Stewart.
The helicopter was lifting a 155 mm howitzer when the craft caught fire,
said Capt. Craig Fisher of Camp Lejeune's public affiars office, but he said
he did not know if the copter had crashed or landed normally.
Anthony Rothfork, spokesman for the Marine Corps in Washington, D.C., said
the helicopter did crash, but Lance Cpl. Greg Fedorev of New River Air
Station just south of Camp Lejeune, where the craft was based, said he could
not confirm that report.
Australians blame homosexuals
for blood bank contamination
SYDNEY, Australia. - Homosexuals blamed by angry Australians for the
AIDS contamination of the nation's only blood bank are being threatened
with dismissal from their jobs and violently beaten, officials said yesterday,
Thirteen of the 18 people who received transfusions of blood contaminated
with the deadly Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome virus have died, in-
cluding two babies, officials said.
The crisis erupted last week when health offials discovered the nation's
only blood bank was contaiminated with AIDS, which destroys the body's;
immune system and is almost always fatal.
Medical experts suspect AIDS is transferred through blood products. A
majority of the cases have been found in homosexuals. Hemophiliacs also
are a high-risk group.
Terrorist kills Turkish official
VIENNA-A suspected Armenian terrorist bent on avenging a 1915
massacre of his countrymen shot and killed a Turkist U.N. official yesterday
as the diplomat stopped his red Mercedes at a busy intersections on his way
A white scarf bearing the words "Armenian Revolutionary Army ARA"
was found next to the body of the slain diplomat, Evrin Erguw.
The killing was the second assassination of a Turkish official in Vienna in
Witnesses said a dark-haired, moustached man in blue jeans and a denim
jacket ran up to Ergun's red Mercedes and pumped six shots through the

bullet wound to the head, police said.
Bombs damage abortion clinic
WHEATON, Md-Twin bomb blasts yesterday damaged a Planned
Parenthood office and an abortion clinic that was the scene of a weekend
demonstration in the suburbs of Washington, D.C.
There were no injuries and no arrests.
"This is obviously an act of terrorism," said Gail Frances, owner of the;
Metro Medical and Women's Center. "We won't close."
The explosions, reported only minutes apart at about 6:15 a.m., blew out:
the rear of the abortion clinic and seriously damaged Planned Parenthood's
tiny office at the Randolph Medical Building in nearby Rockville.
Clinic administrator Penny Smith said the office is sometimes guarded at
night, and added: "Thank God no one was in there. There's always some ex-:
tremist who calls himself pro-life."
Consumer &spend : ingdopslgty
WASHINGTON-Americans' personal income rose 0.6 percent in October.
but consumer spending slipped 0.1 percent, the government said yester-
day-the first drop since last February and a further indication of a:
slowdown in economic growth.
While one private economist said the downturn was just the "lull before
the holiday buying season," others predicted that economic growth is likely:
to remain stagnant for some months to come.
The Commerce Department report said personal consumption spending,:
which includes virtually everything except interest payments on debt, drop-,
ped 0.1 percent in October. It was the first decline since a 0.9-percent setback
It followed a revised 1.7-percent spending increase in September. The in-:
crease, which was originally reported at 1.4 percent, had raised hopes that:
consumer spending, which has been one of the key forces driving the'
recovery, was taking off again after a weak summer.
The October decline reinforced the view that consumer spending is likely:
to be flat in coming months, throwing into doubt how good a Christmas:
season retailers will have.
