Vice President George Bush.
Earlier in the term, RSG resolved to
donate some of its funds to a medical
aid effort in Nicaragua. This month
RSG is sponsoring a speakers series
that will include Marxist economist
Paul Sweezy, who Baker said would
not ordinarily be heard at the Univer-
RACKHAM psychology student
Milton Schaefer said he decided to
vote because of these controversial
moves initiated by RSG. "Before,
RSG didn't deal with substantive
issues and didn't communicate. Now,
they're more politically aware and
active," he said.
Baker said he was glad to see that
both education division seats had been
filled this fall: Last fall, one seat
remained vacant for the entire term,

the collapse occurred because of a
flaw in the design of the chamber.
ENGINEERS and architects who
designed the building will be at the
site today along with University of-
ficials to assess the damage.
Three electricians working in the
area escaped injury by fleeing from
the chamber after they heard the
sounds of falling concrete and run-
After the initial explosions, the
electricians went in with flashlights
and noticed that the air conditioning
unit had become detached from the
"We knew something serious was
happening," said electrician Bar-
bang Christensen, "So that's when
we left the room and stood outside
The second explosion sent them
running. "The pressure of the roof
caving in blew all the air out the only
doorway," she said.
Then, just as they started to run,
there was a third explosion. "It
threw a steel door across the hall one
foot in front of me," Christensen
said. On their way, they stopped to
evacuate the three classrooms on
the floor, she added.
Engineering freshman Mike Katz
was one of the students in a
basement classroom which had to be
"I felt shaking through the whole
building. I was sleeping in class and
it woke me up."
Junne, one of the education
representatives seated, said he
decided to run based on the en-
couragement given to him from frien-
ds. He said he was "glad to win
because he never had a chance to par-
ticipate in student government
The other education representative
seated, Ruffins, said he was thrilled
by the victory. "I'm excited about the
opportunity and now is a good time to
look at things anew," he said.
Haddy said that she decided to run
for office when she heard Fred Bar-

wanted to abolish GEO. She said that
she hopes to continue the strong
positive relationship between GEO

COMPILED FROM ASSOCIATED PRESS AND
UNITED PRESS INTERNATIONAL REPORTS
U.S. to offer new arms plan
WASHINGTON - President Reagan announced yesterday he was
making a new nuclear weapons limitation proposal to the Soviet Union
and would request the current round of negotiations in Geneva be exten-
ded to consider it.
Reagan, bidding to seize the initiative before his Nov. 19-20 meeting
with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev said the new U.S. offer will call for
"very significant, balanced reductions" in nuclear arsenals, but refused
to go into specifics.
He did say, however, the proposal is guided by four principles: deep
cuts in offensive weapons, no first-strike advantage for either side,
allowance for continued work on defensive systems - a reference to his
"star wars" anti-missile project - and "no cheating."
Appearing before reporters at the White House, Reagan said he
outlined the proposal in letters to Gorbachev and allied leaders and an-
nounced the offer would be formally presented Friday at the superpower
arms talks in Geneva, Switzerland.
Soviet Union researehing
'Star Wars,' study says
LONDON - The Soviet Union has increased the number of long-range
nuclear warheads by 37 percent in the past three years and is actively
researching strategic defense technologies, popularly known as 'Star
Wars,' a prestigious research institute said yesterday.
The Soviet Union has a substantial edge over the United States in the
number of ground-and submarine-launched missile warheads and in their
overall destructive capacity, the report said.
The International Institute for Strategic Studies said that with the ex-
ception of the superpowers, military budgets "are generally showing
slow or no growth and in a number of cases budgets are actually
The independent institute, which is financed by Western foundations,
membership fees and sales of its publications, said in its 1985-1986
Military Balance publication that there was roughly a 10 percent rise in
the number of U.S. strategic warheads over the past three years and a 37
percent increase in Soviet warheads.
The U.S. figure went from 9,268 to 10,174 warheads and the Soviet figure
from about 7,300 to 9,987 warheads. The Soviets hold an approximate 1.20-
1 edge over the United States in deployed land-and-submarine-based
missile warheads, and a 2.39-1 margin in megatonnage.
Botha backs apartheid
reform despite opposition
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - President Pieter Botha vowed
yesterday to press ahead with slow reform of apartheid despite signs in
Wednesday's elections that many whites fear he is moving too fast.
Botha's National Party, campaigning on a platform of gradual race
reform, won four of the five Parliament seats at stake in Wednesday's
voting but lost ground everywhere to the far right.
White-supremacist parties on South Africa's far right said yesterday
their broad gains in the five elections proved there was a surge in white
opposition to sharing power with blacks.
Two ultraconservative parties slashed the Nationalists' past majority
in four districts and took a seat away from Botha's party in the Orange
Free State for the first time since 1953.
The National Party, in power since 1948, has a huge margin in
Parliament, and parliamentary control was not an issue.
Juan returns to Gulf Coast
PENSACOLA, Fla. - Erratic Tropical Storm Juan returned to the Gulf
of Mexico and spun back up to near hurricane strength yesterday heading
for rain-soaked Florida "like a speeding truck" after causing more that
$1 billion damage in Louisiana.
At 12:30 p.m. EST, Juan folled ashore near Gulf Shores, Ala., southeast
of Mobile near the Florida border, and was moving toward the northeast
at 15 to 20 mph, the National Weather Service said. Gale warnings were
posted from Port O'Connor, Texas, to Fort Myers, Fla.
Tides 4 to 6 feet above normal were expected along the coasts of
Alabama and northwestern Florida.
Florida Gov. Bob Graham cut short a trip to Washington and urged
coastal residents to be ready to evacuate, as they did ahead of Hurricane
Elena during the Labor Day weekend.
At least seven people had been killed by the sudden, late-season storm
since it sprawled along the Louisiana coast Sunday. Seven people were
unaccounted for, but four others aboard a sailboat were reported safe
yesterdat more than two days after they were reported missing.
Govt suspends contractor
WASHINGTON - The Air Force suspended the Rockwell International
Corp. from doing business with the Defense Department for at least 30
days yesterday after the nation's No.1 federal contractor pleaded guilty
to defrauding the government.
Air Force Secretary Verne Orr ordered the suspension in proposing to
debar Rockwell from signing any contracts with the government, which
would include the firm's major involvement in the space shuttle program
as well as being the prime contractor for the Air Force's new B-1B bom-
The suspension has no immediate impact on the $28 billion bomber
program, an Air Force spokesman said. Three of 100 B-1Bs have been
built so far.
"I've taken this action to protect the taxpayer's interests and to send
another clear signal that the Air Force simply won't tolerate this or other
kinds of fraud regardless of the size of the contractor," Orr said in a
