Reagan names UN ambassador
WASHINGTON-President Reagan picked diplomatic troubleshooter and
onetime spymaster Vernon Walters yesterday to succeed Jeane Kirkpatrick
as ambassador to the United Nations.
Walters, a master of eight languages and translator for four presidents,
has served Reagan since 1981 as an ambassador at large, visiting about 100
countries, usually on secret missions.
If confirmed by the Senate to his new post, Walter, 68, also will be a mem-
ber of Reagan's Cabinet. Kirkpatrick announced Jan. 30 she was quitting to
return to teaching, lecturing and writing about foreign affairs.
A retired three-star Army general, Walters was deputy director of the CIA
under President Nixon and Ford. He played a key role in the secret
diplomacy ending American involvement in the Vietnam war, and also the
negotiations leading to a renewal of U.S. ties with China.
Reflecting on his assignments for Reagan, Walters said in an Associated
Press interview last August, "I am not sent if success is likely. Local
authorities take care of the easy problems. One of my chief tasks is ad-
ministering extreme unction, just before the patient dies."
Strohs to close Detroit plant
Donna Romeo, Graduate
student: "Most idefinitely.
I'm so involved in my studies
that the friends I do make are
related to these studies. I don't
have the opportunity or the
time to meet other people."
Mercedes Castro, Nursing
freshman: "It definitely' does.
At a school with a lower
academic level, you have less
work so you will have more
time to socialize. You have to
get organized, which is the
key, along with discipline. You
can find a happy medium."
Louise Bylicki, LSA
sophomore: "It does because
people are concerned about
their grades. The social life is
sacrificed because there's so
much work to do. People
should take time out to
socialize, see a film, or do
something they enjoy."
Kim Washington, LSA
sophomore: "There's so much
pressure to do well
academically that people
neglect their social lives; they
don't enjoy themselves
because theyre so worried
about competing with other
Heather Hehman, LSA
sophomore: "Yes. Last year
as a freshman it really hin-
dered it. Now that I'm a
sophomore, I know other
resources and places to go.
You have to decide if going out
and being social is important
to you, deciding your not going
to study all your life."
Jim Schoenburg, LSA junior:
"It definitely does during fin-
als and midterms. During the
rest of the year, people study
during the week and let loose
on the weekends. People can
separate their academics
from their partying."
Dave Tholan, LSA
sophomore: "I transferred
from Kalamazoo college and I
found the pressure to be much
less here. You can get away
from the pressures when you
want because there's so much
Roy Zornow, LSA senior: "I
think it does more so in fields
like engineering and science. I
think there's a lot of com-
petition which stifles social
learning and individual
David Romantz, LSA
sophomore: "Yes. Everyone
is trying to beat everyone out,
so you have to study. That
hinders the social life.
Michelle Brown, LSA senior:
"Yes. The emphasis on lear-
ning is on studying and
reading, as opposed to
discussion. This effects social
life because that manner of
learning limits the
possibilities of learning from

I was totally surprised, she said, but
not at all upset. "It was terrific. They
picked a great lecture, I was talking
about Italian Mannerism," Kirkpatrick
The trio's appearance in Cultural An-
thropology 101 was not nearly as
timely. The teaching assistants were
passing out hourly exams when the
sophomore students jumped out of their
seats and raced to the front of MLB
Aud. 3, singing and dancing to the
theme of 2001.
"WE TOLD the TA we were the
missing link," said the Daves, which
the TA then repeated for all the class to
They did not stay for the exam.
The gorillas said they preferred
smaller classes to the larger lectures
they visited. "The small classes are
more personal. We want more sin-
cerity in our act," they said.
IT'S ANYBODY'S guess what kind of
reviews the gorillas would have
received from theater critics, but Kirk-
patrick let the accolades flow freely.
"It was a perfect performance .. .
they had it down very well. It's not easy
to do it (cartwheel down the aisles) with
lights down for Art History," she said.
Kirkpatrick may have been biased by
the "very nice" artificial rose the
unexpected visitors presented her after
DETROIT-Stroh Brewery Co., the nation's third largest brewer, announ-
ced yesterday it will close its Detroit brewing plant this year, ending 135
years of beer-making in the city where the company was founded.
The company's surprise announcement sent shock waves throughout the
economically depressed city. Stroh's huge fire-brewed plant on Gratiot
Avenue employs nearly 900 people with an annual payroll of $40 million.
"This was one of the most difficult decisions we have ever made," said
Chairman Peter Stroh, a sixth-generation member of the Stroh family. "We
have studied every reasonable alternative to closing the plant and have con-
cluded this decision is best for our entire company.
"It will strengthen not only our company for the future, but the future for
our remaining 5,500 employees nationwide and our 1,200 wholesalers and
their employees as well."
S. Korean opposition leader
arrested on return from exile
SEOUL, South Korea-Exiled opposition leader Kim Dae-jung returned
home yesterday to a rough welcome by police, and immediate house arrest.
The United States, South Korea's principal ally, formally protested
mistreatment of Kim and an American delegation.
Some of the prominent Americans who accompanied Kim on the trip from
the United States demanded that President Chun Doo-hwan's forthcoming
visit to Washington be canceled, but the Reagan administration said the trip
was still on, at least until what happened at the airport was clear.
Moments after Kim left the plane, police pushed him and his wife into an
airport elevator, shoved two American congressment and several people
aside and drove the couple to their Seoul home by back roads to avoid crowds
gathered along the main highway to welcome the popular opposition leader.
Some of Kim's supporters said he was beaten. He told foreign reporters
later: "Police used violence against me. They pushed me. I felt as if I was
Norfolk Southern to buy Conrail
WASHINGTON-The Transportation Department hasaselected Norfolk
Southern Corp., as its choice to buy Conrail, government and industry sour-
ces said yesterday..
The sale must still be approved by Congress where a number of
congressmen have raised concern that a merger of Norfolk Southern, one of
the East's major railroads, and Conrail might reduce competition.
The sources, who asked not to be identified by name, said that Transpor-
tation Secretary Elizabeth Dole selected Norfolk Southern over two other
bidders, the Alleghany Corp., a new York investment company, and an in-
vestment group headed by hotel executive J. Willard Marriott
The merger of the two Eastern railroads, if approved by Congress would
create the country's largest rail system stretching across 4,000 miles of
track from Boston to New Orleans and as far west as Kansas City. The two
railroads' combined revenue was more than $6 billion in 1983.
Walesa calls for end to terror
WARSAW, Poland-Solidarity leader Lech Walesa called yesterday for an
end to repression and "propaganda terror" in Poland following the convic-
tion of four secret police officers for their roles in the murder of a pro-
Walesa, in his first public reaction to the trial, criticized the government's
handling of the case and said authorities had failed to alleviate public fears
about injustice in Poland.
A panel of judges in Torun on Thursday convicted three secret police of-
ficers of kidnapping and murdering the Rev. Jerzy Popieluszko and senten-
ced them to prison terms of 14 to 25 years. Their commanding officer
received a 25-year sentence for instigating the crime.
"We would like to recognize this trial as a sign of the good will of the
authorities toward accord, of the advantage of the force of law over the right
of force," Walesa, 41, said in a statement read by one of his aides. "But new
facts occurred which make us doubt it."
He cited the government's refusal to all Seweryn Blumztajn, a prominent
Solidarity activist, to return to Poland from three years' exile in France.
Police stopped Blumsztajn at Warsaw airport Tuesday and put him on a
return flight to Paris.

me to be more aware of everything I
do," she says.
Before becoming a temple member,
Victor Ponelis, an LSA sophomore,
practiced meditation on his own.
"THE FIRST time I saw Sanbul
meditating I thought: 'This guy is
dealing with reality. This isn't anything
ridiculous. These guys are serious.' "
In general, students of Zen agree that
the meditation can be helpful for
anyone as long as it- is done
properly-that is, if people do not ex-
perience the present.
However, an increasing interest in
Zen Buddhism has caused a problem.
There are just not enough Zen priests
and nuns to teach the religion.
"There are from three to five million
Buddhists in the United States alone
and the number is growing faster here
than in Asia. There are simply not
enough trained teachers," Sanbul says.

"SOME OF that service could be ac-
commodated by fewer people," he said.
"This is nothing new," he added.
"It's been talked about at the Univer-
sity since 1971" when the University
security department was created. So
far, however, no one has been able to
push the change through.

President Scott Page said the issue
probably will be sent to the assembly's
Students Rights Committee, formerly
the Code Committee, for discussion.
HE ADDED, however, that MSA's of-
ficial input in such a move would be
limited. "I doubt we have to approve it,"
"It's not like they're bringing in their
