U.S. soldiers to leave Grenada
ST. GEORGE'S, Grenada (AP) - Vice President
George Bush yesterday rejected a government
request to let 250 American soldiers stay in
Grenada but said the United States was committed to
preserving democracy on the island.
The troops, remnants of a force that invaded the
Caribbean island on Oct. 25, 1983 to oust a radical lef-
tist junta, are scheduled to leave Grenada by June 12,
and Bush said there were no plans to change the
HOWEVER, THE vice president pledged that the
United States "will not sit idly by and allow
Grenada's security to be threatened."
The vice president spent the morning resting at a
beachfront hotel before meeting local leaders and
addressing a cheering crowd at athletic field. He
departed in mid-afternoon, a little more than eight
hours after arriving, for Brazil to attend the
inauguration Friday of president-elect Tancredo
Bush flew to Grendada after attending the funeral
of Soviet President Konstantin Chernenko and
talking with the new Kremlin leader, Mikhail Gor-
bachev. He said he left Moscow "with the feeling that
the new general secretary is interested in progress on
arms control. So I didn't see any negative change in
that very important area."
BUSH REITERATED that he couldn't discuss a
letter from President Reagan he delivered to Gor-
bachev, saying it was up to Soviets to make it public.
He would not say whether the letter related to a U.S.-
Soviet summit, which officials in Washington said
Reagan is seeking.
Leaders of Grenada's recently elected government
asked for an extension of the U.S. military presence,
citing the inexperience of the island's 500-person
The withdrawal of U.S. forces will coincide with the
departure of the 400-person Caribbean Peacekeeping
Force, composed of soldiers from six island nations.
"We are committed to law and order, we are com-
mitte to democracy in Grenada," Bush said, but ad-
ded thht U.S. officials were satisfied that the Grenada
police force, mostly of recruits trained by U.S. and
British experts, can handle any security problems.
He said if a security threat developed during the
phased withdrawal that begins April 12, the removal
of troops will be halted. Asked if troops would be sent
back in if problems flared after the withdrawal, Bush
said he "was not going into specifics" or hypothetical
Bush said his welcome in Grenada and his talks
with Prime Minister Herbert Blaize underlined his
conviction that the Grenada invasion was "a proud
moment" for the United States.

Next month is the tenth anniversary

The system is now down to about fif-
teen minutes, from four hours in the
past. "We used to hold registration in
the Waterman gym, each department
set up a table, and students would sit in
line all day, waiting for spaces in the
sections to open," he said.

programs and people who can be found
at the University. Last year's tuition
freeze, the growth of Michigan's
economy and an adequate financial aid
program also add to the popularity of
the school, Sjogren said.
ALL FACTORS considered, "the
reputation of this University is well
deserved. We are among the best
luniversities in this country, in fact in
the'world," Sjogren said.
The University is deserving of such a
fine reputation because the professors
and "students are of such high quality
and good students make good
professors look even better," Sjogren

the trip is well worth the money. When
the assembly decided not to ap-
jiopriate the money, Page called the
University's lobbyist in Washington,
Tom Butts, who agreed that the lobby
day should be attended by University
representatives. Page then relayed
Butts' message to Johnson.
Williams and Michaels will attend
seminars and classes during the

."We think it is a great idea," said
Michaels. "MSA did not want to fund
half the trip, but the University agreed
to fund the whole thing. It shows we're
not crazy (for wanting to go) ."-
Michaels and Williams have com-
pletely different ideologies. Michaels is
an "ardent Reagan-Bush supporter"
and Williams is much more liberal.
"The people I know who supported
Reagan-Bush still feel the education
budget should remain intact. The cuts
Kould only be less than 1 percent of the
deficit," Michaels said.
"Our lobbying together is a good way
of saying these cuts are bad," said

students too," Sjogren said.
STUDENTS are also drawn to the
University because of the high marks
given to it in college guide books and
reports. But many students find out
about the University simply through
friends or relatives. Sjogren said this
word-of-mouth theory facilitates
Marilyn McKinny, assistant director
of admissions, said alumni went to 80
college nights last year to convince in-
terested high school students to attend
The increased alumni recruitment of
recent years may help explain the
growing number of out of state ap-
plicants, Sjogren said. "I think last
year was the first year out of state (ap-
plications) exceeded in-state," he said.
Alumni have been most active in
California, Florida, and Texas, McKin-
ny said. "We even have active alumni
in Belgium," she said.
In order to combat the view that the
University is "a big, cold, and imper-
sonal place to be," alumni said ad-
missions officers also call many ap-
plicants to inform them of their accep-
tance before they get the official notice
in the mail, McKinny said.
