Q. How do you feel about proposals that would ban happy
Hugh Mulla'y, Bartender,
senior: "I'm against it. I think
bars should alter prices as they
see fit. Many of the people who
come in just look for the
specials and I think it will af-
fect the number of people who
Terry Yarmak, engineering
junior: "It's not going to stop
people from drinking and
driving. I would go to happy
hour even if there weren't
Lisa Henry, LSA sophomore:
"It's not really relevant in this
town because we all walk to the
bars. I usually go to happy
hours because its Friday or
just to relax with friends and
not because of drink specials."
Kay Dickerson, LSA junior: "I
think its a vain attempt to
prevent drinking and driving.
People don't drink more
because of two for one drink
specials. People do know what
they're doing therefore I don't
think they will have any ef-
buane Foster, Russian Studies
senior: "I feel they won't be ef-
fective in what they're trying
to do. People will drink and
drive no matter what. Banning
happy hours won't affect my
Vickie Hershey, Nursing
senior: "I think its a good idea
because it might cut down on
the number of people who go to
the bar right after work and
have to drive. I only go to hap-
py hours to hang out with
friends, not because pitchers
Charlie Ryan, Bartender:
"Bars will get around the two
for one specials by offering
reduced prices for drinks. It
won't stop me from going
because I go for the floor
Mary Hodges, LSA senior: "I
think they're stupid, especially
here on campus where people
only walk to bars. If they ban
happy hours I'll still go out but
not as often. Two for one drink
specials don't make people
drink any more."
Mike Sovel, engineering
junior: "I think the idea is
good, but it won't really work.
If I have a hard week I'm gon-
na go to the bar anyway
whether or not there are drink
specials. They won't have any
effect on drinking and driving."
Kathy Bazil, LSA senior: "I
think its a good idea to ban two
for one drink specials. The
mere fact that two drinks are
in front of you instead of one
encourages drinking. But I
don't go to bars because of
drink specials, I go to socialize."

Orders for durable goods rise
WASHINGTON - Orders to factories for durable goods rose a strong
14.9 percent in 1984 while sales of existing homes posted their best perfor-
mance in four years, according to two economc reports released yesterday.
The reports capped a week of good economic news which has led many
forecasters to boost their estimates of growth in coming months.
The Commerce Department said orders for durable goods - items expec-
ted to last three or more hears - climbed to a record $1.211 trillion in 1984.
Last year's gain followed an even stronger 17.1 percent jump in 1983. The
increases marked the best two-year performance since 1977 and 1978, when
orders rose by 19 percent and 18.4 percent, respectively.
Orders for durable goods had fallen 10.2 percent in the recession year of
"These back-to-back increases show that we had super growth in the last
two years," said Allen Sinai, chief economist for Shearson Lehman-
American Express. He predicted strong growth in manufacturing orders
again in 1985, but not another year of double-digit increases.
Soviets say Chernenko ailing
MOSCOW - Soviet officials acknowledge President Konstantin Cher-
nenko has been ill during the past four weeks, but their versions of his
ailment vary widely, a senior Western diplomat said yesterday.
"High people have said he is ill," said the diplomat, who spoke on con-
dition that he not be identified by name or nationality. "They have said it as
though they meant it, and as though it's serious. It's pretty obvious that his
health has been declining."
However, the diplomat said, he had "absolutely no independent infor-
mation" on the state of the 73-year-old Chernenko's health. Different Soviet
officials have said that Chernenko suffers from "everything from em-
physema to a stroke," the diplomat added.
He also said the Soviets seem more open about Chernenko's health
problems than they were during the lengthy illness of his predecessor, Y uri
Andropov, who died last February.
Soviet officials are "taking it more calmly," he said. "There is less feeling
that this is something that there is a major reason for trying to hide or cover
up," the diplomat said.
There has been specualtion about Chernenko's health since his failure to
appear Dec. 24 at the Red Square funeral of Defense Minister Dmitri Un-
Sen. Dole demands defense cut
WASHINGTON - Senate Republican leader Robert Dole yesterday step-
ped up pressure for a reduction in defense spending, saying if President
Reagan "is not on board, then we can't get anywhere" in cutting the federal
Dole and other GOP leaders have been pressing for a freeze on military
spending in fiscal 1986, or at the very least, a smaller amount of money than
the 6 percent increase proposed by Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger.
Reagan backs Weinberger.
The Republican senators are writing their own budget independently of
the White House - which sends the administration plan to Congress Feb. 4 -
but their progress has slowed due to disagreements on defense and other
issues. Dole's goal is to cut $50 billion from the $230 billion deficit in fiscal
1986 and slash it in half by 1988.
"I won't say everything is lost if we don't get more defense reductions, but
maybe most of it," Dole told a business forum breakfast. "If we go off on our
own and the president in not on board, then we can't get anywhere."
Nicaragua orders mtary draft
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - The Nicaraguan government yesterday ov-
dered all youths between the ages of 19 and 24 in the central province of
Managua to report for compulsory military service or face imprisonment.
A Nicaraguan Defense Ministry notice appeared in Managua newspapers
listing the names of approximately 5,000 youths in the province who were or-
dered to report for physicals at military bases next week.
Those passing the physicals will be sent to military training camp for six
months before being mobilized to combat zones along the northern and
southern borders where army troops are battling U.S.-backed rebels.
The order called on "all youths registered in the military service who were
born between the years of 1961 and 1966 to present themselves in the military
delegation zones with proof of registration for the corresponding updating."
Grand jury refuses to indict
Goetz in subway shootings
NEW YORK - A grand jury yesterday refused to indict Bernhard
Goetz for attempted murder in the shootings of four young men on a subway,
and instead indicted him only on three counts of criminal possession of a
"What the grand jury dicided here was that he was illegally carrying a
pistol but he was justified in protecting himself from a robbery," said
Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau, in announcing the indic-
Goetz's lawyers scheduled a news conference later in the afternoon to
comment on the grand jury's action.
Goetz, 37, remains free on $50,000 bail. Arraignment was scheduled for
The indictment by the 23-member grand jury was the latest twist in a case
that has drawn national attention since Dec. 22, when the four youths asked
Goetz to give them $5 andhe reeled off five shots instead.

researchers to fund future work.
"IT LOOKS like a trend (by the
Reagan administration) of trying to cut
the federal deficit by reducing an agen-
cy which has always increased its
budget," Randolph said. "To the Office
of Management and Budget, the NIH
looked ripe for cutting."
The DRDA, a University-sponsored
office which acts as a liaison between
researchers and funding organizations,
reports that the University received 359
new grants last year from the Public
Health Service, almost all of which
came from the NIH.
Statistics gathered by the DRDA
show that NIH money accounts for 65
percent of the combined research gran-
ts in the University's medical, dental,
and nursing schools, as well as some in
LSA and engineering.
According to Randolph, the ad-
ministration does not have the legal
authority to take money from the agen-
cy, but can instead limit the number of
grants given to researchers, thus spen-
ding fewer government dollars. The av
erage NIH grant awarded is between
$140,000 and $150,000.
"If the NIH is forced to reduce its
grants," Randolph said, "we'll never
know how many grants we might have
Researchers denied NIH grants have
the option of seeking funds from private
agencies such as the American Cancer
Society or the Kidney Foundation.
Dennis Cebulski, the assistant direc-
tor of DRDA, said federal funding also
can be obtained by showing the
research has implications for other
government agencies like NASA or the
Department of Defense.
All University teaching assistants
currently pay 60 percent of in-state
tuition and the University pays the
other 40 percent. A story in yesterday's
Daily incorrectly stated that the TAs
pay 40 percent in-state tuition.
