Israelis kill 30 in retaliation for slayings

TUNIS, Tunisia (UPI) -,Israeli F-
16 warplanes bombed and destroyed
the Palestine Liberation
Organization headquarters yester-
day, killing at least 30 people and in-
juring 30 others in retaliation for the
Yom Kippur slayings of three Israelis
in Cyprus.
The single-engine jets flew a 1,550,
mile round trip for the attack on the
PLO command center in this North
African nation - Israel's longest
retaliatory air strike ever. The planes
refueled in midflight, the Israeli army
said in Jerusalem.
THE JETS swept low over the coast
to strike Yasser Arafat's headquar-

ters only 12 miles south of the.
Tunisian capital. Although Arafat
escaped the devastating attack, the
Israeli bombs destroyed his political
headquarters, his residence and the
homes of several PLO officials.
Dressed in military fatigues and
appearing distressed, Arafat and an
aide inspected the damage and talked
with the wounded. Arafat has made
his main headquarters in Tunisia sin-
ce being driven out of Beirut by the
Israelis in 1982.
In Tel Aviv, Defense Minister Yit-
zhak Rabin told a briefing the raid
was to retaliate for the Yom Kippur
slayings of three Israelis aboard a

yacht in Cyprus. And he called it a
warning to terrorists "that the long
arm of the IDF (Israel Defense For-
ces) will reach them wherever they
are."
ALTHOUGH a caller claiming to
represent the PLO group "Force 17"
claimed responsibility for the attack
in Cyprus, the PLO has denied in-
volvement.
Palestinian sources in the Tunisian
capital said at least 30 people,
believed to be Palestinians, were
killed and 30 others were wounded in
the bombing attack by four to six
Israeli F-16 jets.

At least one of the dead was a mem-
ber of Force 17, the sources said.
ISRAEL HAS bombed guerrilla
bases in neighboring Lebanon 13
times this year, but it was the first
time it has struck any other country
since June 7, 1981, when its warplanes
bombed an Iraqi nuclear reactor near
Baghdad. Israel also mounted the
airborne mission in 1976 and rescured
hostages held at Entebbe airport in
Uganda.
Yesterday's raid provoked ex-
pressions of anger from other Arab
countries and Tunisia called for ac-
tion by the U.N. Security Council.

But for the most part, boredom
keeps students in a state of hiber-
nation. And bored, according to
Pachella, is something students
should not be.
"(College) should be the time of
your life," he explains. "There are
people out there who would die for this
opportunity."

i

But, he said, most students view
college as work. "Grades are like
their pay."
And sometimes even the promise of
a huge salary someday isn't enough to
keep students from hitting the snooze,
rolling over, and dozing.
Five-year
plan begins
fourth year
(Continued from Page 1)
The art school, the least affected of
the three, losing $164,000, also seems
to be the quickest to recover of the
three. According to Barbara Cer-
venka, an assistant dean at the school,
enrollment is back up to the pre-
review days of 550 students. Cervenka
credits this to a nation-wide recruit-
ment campaign last year.
Trying to ease the impact of the $10
million in cuts to the three schools,
Frye last years extended the five-
year plan over seven years. The
University has now redistribued $12
million of the funds, an additional $4
million this year, while the final $4
million had been scheduled to be
redistributed next year.
But to make the cuts more "or-
derly" and to make up for two years
of lost time to the budget reviews,
Frye decided that the final $4 million
will be spread over three years, en-
ding in the 1988-89 academic year.
"It seemed to make more sense this
way," Sauve said. "If you tell the
schools they have to make their cuts
now, they may have to lay off some of
their staff."

IN BRIEF
COMPILED FROM ASSOCIATED PRESS AND
UNITED PRESS INTERNATIONAL REPORTS
Reagan sets Krugerrand ban
WASHINGTON - President Reagan yesterday banned importation of
Krugerrands, effective Oct. 11, putting into place a key element of the
administration's program of limited economic sanctions designed to
move South Africa away from its system of racial segregation.
The president acted in an executive order issued as a follow-up to san-
ctions imposed on Sept. 9, which he said were designed to deal with an
"unusual and extraordinary" emergency in South Africa. That nation is
in the grip of turmoil over the racial separation policy, apartheid.
Reagan said he acted "in view of the continuing nature of that
emergency. "
Secretary of State George Shultz told the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee on Sept. 17 that the ban on Krugerrand imports was expected
to take effect within weeks.
In his Sept. 9 executive order, Reagan said the United States would con-
sult with trading partners in the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade
before imposing a ban on importation of the gold coins.
New anti-AIDS drug tested
MINNEAPOLIS - An experimental new drug stops the AIDS virus
from reproducing and attacking blood cells in the laboratory, and initial
tests show it can be given safely to AIDS victims, researchers said
yesterday.
"I think this is very promising. This is one of the most potent drugs"
against the AIDS virus, said Dr. Hiroaki Mitsuya of the National Cancer
Institute. "The advantage of this agent is that it is less toxic in vitro," or
in the test tube, than other experimental AIDS medicines.
The drug, known chemically as azidothymidine, has been code named
compound S by its developer, the pharmaceutical firm Burroughs
Wellcome.
The effort to treat AIDS has been stymied by the difficulty of attacking
viruses in general and the virus that causes this lethal disease in par-
ticular. The new drug works by short-circuiting the chemical process that
the virus uses to make copies of itself inside human white blood cells.
Location of Soviets unknown;
caller claims two hostages dead
BEIRUT, Lebanon - A caller claiming to represent Islamic Jihad
terrorists said two of four kidnapped Soviet officials were killed yester-
day and the others would be executed unless Moscow stopped Syrian-
backed assaults on the city of Tripoli. Another report said the Soviets
were alive.
The death claim, made in a call to a Western news agency in Beirut,
could not be confirmed by Lebanese or Soviet Embassy authorities. The
whereabouts of the three Soviet diplomats and embassy physician abduc-
ted Monday remained unknown.
"We killed two, the commercial attache and the doctor, and that's all
for today," an Arabic-speaking man told the Western news agency.
The kidnappings were the first directed at Soviet citizens in Lebanon,
where six Americans continue to be held by people identifying them-
selves as the Islamic Jihad, or Holy War.
Heckler accepts Ireland post
WASHINGTON - Margaret Heckler stepped down yesterday as
secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to become
ambassador to Ireland but President Reagan denounced reports that she
was forced from the post as "malicious gossip" and "falsehood."
There had been persistent reports that the White House staff, par-
ticularly chief of staff Donald Regan, had disapproved of Heckler's per-
formance and had applied pressure to get her out. The department, with
145,000 employees, has a $330 billion budget - the largest in the gover-
nment.
"She has done a fine job at HHS," the president said, during a brief ap-
pearance in the White House press room. "As a matter of fact, if she
hadn't done such agood job, I wouldn't have been so eager to seek her out
to be the ambassador to Ireland."
The president said a successor to Mrs. Heckler had not been chosen.
The effective date of her resignation was not immediately clear.
Mrs. Heckler fidgeted with her hands and appeared nervous as the
president talked with reporters. She said Reagan had persuaded her to
take the new post and that she considers it "an honor and an exciting
challenge."
Students riot, boycott classes
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Police battled mixed-race high
school students following a rally at a university near Cape Town yester-
day, and tens of thousands of youths boycotted classes despite a gover-
nment appeal.
Violence broke out at the University of the Western Cape in Bellville af-
ter about 4,000 student leaders staged a rally there to decide whether to go
to classes, witnesses said.
Schools reopened yesterday after being closed nearly a month because
of fierce rioting and the government asked students to return.
Reporters said police fired tear gas into buildings of the mixed-race
university and one youth was shot in the leg after about 200 youths started
throwing rocks. Skirmishes continued late into the afternoon.
Student leaders decided at the rally to urge a return to schools today to
debate at each site whether to continue the boycott.

But the government announced a ban on all meetings on school groun-
ds, jeopardizing chances of an agreement to end the walkout.
Reporters who visited schools around the Cape Peninsula said most
were deserted. Only some primary schools had relatively good attendan-
ce, new reports said.
Police said seven reporters, including foreign television cameramen,
were arrested during the Cape Town rioting and accused of hindering
police.
