Soviets steal secrets

not begin classes until late September.
In addition, Canham said he did not
favor televising more Wolverine foot=
ball games. For example, last Satur-
day's home game brought in
$1,400,000 from ticket sales and only
$30,000 from the national telecast.
We've got to sell those 102,000
tickets," he said, adding that schools
which have tried to televise a number
of games have run into attendance
"MY OBLIGATION is'to those
people who buy tickets, not to some
guy drinking beer in Joe's Bar in
Detroit. I don't give a damn about
him. I don't want to give everyone in
- the Midwest a chance to stay home
- and watch it for $30,000."
Canham said that making money
from sports like football is important
because the athletic department
receives no money from the Univer-
" sity or the state.
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Soviets have been much
more successful than previously thought in stealing
Western technology and as a result, "We are subsidizing
the military buildup of the Soviet Union," Defense
Secretary Caspar Weinberger said yesterday.
Weinberger released a study asserting the Soviets have
targeted specific American defense contractors and
universities, are acquiring thousands of technical reports
that are not classified but are useful, and are diverting
high-tech equipment designed for one purpose but which
can be used in weapons programs.
"BY THEIR OWN estimate, more than 5,000 Soviet
military research projects each year are benefitting
significantly from Western acquired technology," Wein-
berger said at a news conference.
The report said that while comprehensive figures are
not available, the Soviets estimate they saved at least $640
million in 1980 alone on selected military research
projects by obtaining Western technology.
Neither Weinberger nor Assistant Defense Secretary
Richard Perle, who later briefed reporters on the study,
would elaborate on the sources used to measure the Soviet
BUT THE REPORT, said Perle, should lead to efforts
by the United States to "even up" the number of Soviet
diplomats allowed to operate here compared with the
Americans in the Soviet Union. The United States and its
allies should also consider "a system of blacklisting" to
prevent Soviet agents who are expelled from one country
from gaining posts in another allied nation, he added.
Perle said he would recommend that President Reagan
not discuss any broader scientific and educational ties
with the Soviets when he meets with Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev in November.
The study was described as the product of a special
Technology Transfer Intelligence Committee including
officials from the Pentagon, the CIA and 20 other U.S.
agencies. Much of the general information in the study
was disclosed previously. But it gave what it called "more
examples" of how the Soviets collect information and
products and what they do with such technology.

Fire officials have yet to determine
the cause of a trashcan fire inan East
Quad bathroom that occurred around
4 p.m. yesterday afternoon, said
Robert Patrick, assistant director of
the University's public safety depar-
"It could be accidental or it could
be arson," Patrick said.
EAST QUAD Administrative Direc-
tor John Corser said he pulled the fire
alarm when he saw smoke in the first
floor hallway outside the bathroom. A
housing security officer put the fire
out before the fire trucks arrived.
Other than "a little smoke" and
. singed trash can there was no
damage to the building, said fire
department captain Chuck Torry.
"I saw the aftermath - just a burnt
out trashcan," said freshman Tim
Moran, a second floor resident of East

to make it looser, but I don't know if
there is a strong movement to make it

Levy added that this alcohol policy
is a great improvement over its
predecessor. Before January 1984

The current policy is no consum-
ption of alcohol in any public area of
the residence halls, and, according to
Michigan state law, alcohol can only
be consumed by people 21 and over.
THE FORMER POLICY made it
"impossible to monitor anything
because you didn't know what you
were monitoring," said Levy.
Progressive parties were popular
then since residents could drink in the
halls, but in the last two years, after
the new policy, there have been no
progressives in West Quad, Levy ex-
plained. He said before January 1984,
about $5-6,000 accounted for van-
dalism at West Quad as opposed to a
mere $500 last year.
Beth Painter, president of the
Residence Hall Association, said, "I
feel that the current alcohol policy is
adequate and there is no further need
to add stipulations to it."
RHA, however, has not taken an of-
ficial stand on the issue. They will
vote on it at next Wednesday's
meeting and Painter said, "it will
probably be in the negative...against
any further modification of the
current alcohol policy."
"I HAVE received nothing but
negative feedback on this...they
(students) feel it's an invasion on
privacy," said Painter.
She said that a residence staff
member is "someone on the floor who
is there to help residents, give them
guidance and general advice...if they
turn into police officers it will under-
mine the whole concept of resident
