U.S. ev oy toreturnUo idas


WASHINGTON (AP) - Assistant
Secretary of State Richard Murphy will
return to the Middle East this week to
try to break a negotiating logjam over
arranging an Israeli troop withdrawal
from southern Lebanon, U.S. officials
said yesterday.
One State Department official, who
spoke only on condition that he not be
identified, said the trip reflects in-
creased U.S. involvement in the
negotiations, although he stopped short
of calling it a mediation effort.
Murphy will visit Israel, Lebanon and
Syria, and probably also Jordan and
Egypt, the official said. He said Mur-
phy will stay in the Middle East as long
as his presence seems useful and might

make other stops in the area.
In addition to Lebanon, this official
said, Murphy will discuss prospects for
general Arab-Israeli peace
negotiations, although there are not any
indications that the time is right for a
new U.S. push on President Reagan's
1982 peace initiative.
Murphy spent several weeks in the
Middle East last month in what was
described as a fact-finding mission on
the issue of Israeli troop withdrawal
from southern Lebanon.
Officials said Murphy concluded that
the three major parties in the Lebanon
impasse - Israel, Syria, and Lebanon
- were too far apart to justify a U.S.
mediation effort.

But the State Department official
said yesterday that Murphy's new trip
"portends a bit more active in-
volvement than previously on the issue
of southern Lebanon."
Although Murphy has spent much
time in the Middle East, officials said
there is no thought of naming him - or
anyone else - to succeed Donald Rum-
sfeld, who resigned as special Middle
East envoy last year after the collapse
of the Reagan administration's
Lebanon policy.
Murphy, 55, is a career foreign ser-
vice officer who has served as am-
bassador to Mauritania, Syria, the
Philippines and, most recently, Saudi
Arabia. He became assistant secretary

of state for Near Eastern and South
Asian Affairs in October 1983.
Murphy is returning to the Middle
East because "there has been an ex-
pression of interest by various parties
on U.S. involvement," said the State
Department official, who refused to
"We've said all along we are willing
to play a role if they want us to," the of-
ficial said.
Israeli and Lebanese negotiators
have been meeting at the Lebanese
border town of Naqoura under the
auspices of the United Nations, but are
reported to be far apart on the con-
ditions for withdrawal of Israeli troops
who entered southern Lebanon in 1982.

Govt. angered by S.
Africa policy critics

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Reagan
administration complained yesterday
that criticism of its policy toward South
Africa was "rubbish," even as
protesters announced that demon-
strations against the apartheid system
of racial segregation would spread
across America.
Three more people, including Rep.
Parren Mitchell, (D-Md.), and enter-
tainer Dick Gregory, were arrested
outside the South African Embassy as

barricade yesterday.
The arrests followed a briefing at the*
White House by Assistant Secretary of
Sate chester Crocker, who said the
United States was applying steady
pressure against South Africa to end
repression of blacks. Crocker conferred
yesterday with President Reagan.
"I would say the description of our
policy as ineffective is rubbish and I
also think there's a considerable lack of
information and misunderstanding as
to what it is we stand for, what we're
trying to achieve," Crocker asserted.
liberal arts
(Continued from Page 1)
"They tell us that the liberal arts
were the most important part of their
education and they use it everyday,"
said John Chandler, president of Scrip-
ps College, a four-year liberal arts
school in Claremont, Calif.
The group stressed that liberal arts
offers a broader education that can
train students in intangible qualities
such as leadership, management and
problem solving. Levine cited a study
done by American Telephone and
Telegraph Co. that found many of its
top managers had liberal arts
"Liberal arts is the best preparation
for the future," said Neal Bert, president
of Birmingham-Southern College of
Birmingham, Ala.

Nov. 30 at 11:15 p.m., Ann Arbor Police
Sgt. Jan Suomala said yesterday.
The thief entered the home through

the suspect but were unable to catch
him, Suomala said.
Another break-in occurred in the 400

and 11:00 p.m.
The intruder who removed a screen
to gain entry, stole a radio valued at
approximately $100, Suomala said.

Thomas Holt, director of the
University's Center for Afroamerican
and African Studies, said the University
did not provide Lorch Hall office em-
ployees with adequate notice that
asbestos was being removed from the
building. Holt was misquoted in Satur-
day's Daily as saying that he thought
the employees working in Lorch were
given adequate notice.

Indian gas fumeskill hundreds
NEW DELHI, India-A cloud of poisonous gas spewed from a U.S.-owned
pesticide plant and enveloped the sleeping city of Bhopal yesterday, killing
at least 350 people and injuring more than 12,000 others in one of the worst
industrial accidents in Indian history.
The fumes of methyl isocyanate descended on the city about 2:30 a.m.,
sparking mass panic as sleeping residents jolted awake and fled their homes
to escape the blinding, choking gas.
The gas escaped from a pesticide plant owned by the Hart, Conn.-based
Union CarbidesCo. on the outskirts of Bhopal, 360 miles southwest of New
Delhi, the Press Trust of India said.
Hamidia government hospital officials said 302 bodies were at the facility.
Officials at the Iayaprakash hospital said 27 people there had died, while
seven fatalities were counted at Kaju Hospital.
"I am shocked and deeply grieved at the terrible tragedy in Bhopal. The
huge toll that it has taken is horrifying," said Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
Chicago teachers' strike begins
CHICAGO-Teachers shut down the nation's third-largest school district
in a strike over wages yesterday, while public libraries and day-care centers
expanded services for the 430,000 affected students and their parents.
"We're going to win," Jacqueline Vaughn, president of the 28,000-member
Chicago Teachers Union, told 150 shivering pickets who marched outside a
West Side high school in the 25-degree cold.
The union presidentsaid she hoped there would be progress during
negotiations late yesterday.
"I expect (we'll) be back in the classroom very soon because we have
assurances... there will be serious negotiations," Vaughn said. "We have no
intention of being out until January."
Bargaining with the assistance of a mediator broke off early Sunday, after
the board made an offer satisfying one of the union's principal demands but
leaving the issue of a salary increase up in the air and requiring some union
concessions, totaling about $6 million.
O'Nein keeps House leadership
WASHINGTON-Thomas O'Neill, the highest-ranking Democrat in
national government, won his party's unanimous nomination to a final two-
year term as House speakeF yesterday after conservatives, led by Rep.
Charles Stenholm, abandoned a symbolic challenge.
O'Neill, 71, who has said he will retire in 1986, was selected for a fifth
leadership team at a closed caucus of all 253 House Democrats. The action
cleared the way for what was expected to be a straight party-line vote for
O'Neill when the 99th Congress convenes on Jan. 3.
Stenholm said he dropped his challenge upon concluding that running
against the powerful Massachusetts Democrat "could very well have
become a destructive situation than a constructive one."
He said lack of wide support from colleagues and O'Neill's promises that
conservatives would be given a much stronger voice in House decisions
prompted his decision to drop out.
"When a team is losing, the coach gets the blame," Stenholm, of Texas,
told reporters. "But it became apparent that we are unable to change the
coach. If you can't change the coach, you change the game plan... We are
going to work within the Democratic Party."
NATO.to boost conventional arms
BRUSSELS, Belgium-NATO defense ministers yesterday began three
days of talks at which they are expected to boost conventional defense spen-
ding-an area which officials said has been shortchanged in recent years as
attention focused exclusively on nuclear arms in Europe.
The meeting at NATO headquarters began with a gathering of am-
bassadors of the European NATO nations presided over by British Defense
Secretary Michael Heseltine. Later, the European defense ministers dined
together and will convene again this morning, after which they will be joined
by U.S. Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger and Robert Coates, the Can-
adian defense minister.
The 14 NATO ministers-France and Iceland are not part of NATO's
military command-are expected to approve spending $7.8 billion through
1991 on equipment and facilities for U.S. reinforcement troops in case of war
in Europe.
Separately, the 12 European ministers are expected to issue a statement
today underscoring Europe's contribution to the allied defense effort.
NATO officials have expressed concern about growing criticism in the
U.S. Congress that the Europeans do not pull their fair share in NATO.
Iraqi warplane attacks tanker
MANAMA, Bahrain-An Iraqi warplane fired a rocket into the Cypriot
supertanker Minotaur in the Persian Gulf yesterday, blasting the engine
room and setting the vessel ablaze, marine salvage executives said.
The Minotaur had been en route to Iran's Kharg Island oil terminal to pick
up a load of crude, the executives said.
Thee of the 27 crew members aboard the 386,000-ton tanker were reported
missing and presumed dead, officials said.
An Iraqi military spokesman in Baghdad confirmed that Iraqi jet fighters
hit a "large naval target" but he gave no details.
The attack was the first on a tanker in the gulf in six weeks.
The Iraqis have defined a 50-mile radius around Kharg as an "exclusion
zone of war operations" and warned that vessels entering it would risk at-
tacks by Iraqi warplanes and naval units.
