WASHINGTON - President
Reagan, trying to assuage Kremlin
anxieties, assuredthe Soviet people in
a historic pre-summit interview
yesterday that his "Star Wars"
missile-defense system is not intended
to threaten them with nuclear war.
"I can assure you now we are not
going to try to monopolize this, if such
a weapon is developed, for a first-
strike capability," Reagan said in an
interview Thursday with four Soviet
journalists that was published yester-
day in Moscow.
BUT REAGAN also added con-
fusion to one of the central issues at
the summit - his dedication to the
development of a futuristic defense
against nuclear missiles - that sent
aides scrambling to clarify his words.
"We won't put this weapon or this
system in place - this defensive
system - until we do away with our
nuclear missiles, our offensive
missiles," he said. "But we will make
it available to other countries, in-
cluding the Soviet Union to do the
same thing.
The statement went a step beyond
past hopes by Reagan that his "space
shield" could render offensive
missiles "obsolete" and lead to their
elimination.
HOWEVER, white House
spokesman Larry Speakes insisted
Reagan was setting terms only for
sharing SDI technology, not for its
deployment. In the absence of reduc-
tions in nuclear missiles, he said,

I can assure you now we are not going to
try to monopolize (SDI), if such a weapon
is developed, for a first-strike capability.'

Political Science Prof. Raymond
Tanter jokingly compares his Burns
Park home to the White House,
Pro file
where he worked for sixteen mon-
ths:
"That's the West Wing, the East
Wing, and the Red Room," Tanter
says, pointing out the rooms as he
leads a reporter and a photographer
down a hall decorated with pictures

of him and President Reagan and of
other political figures.
TANTER EXCUSES himself to
change from a designer sweatsuit
into a suit coat and dress pants
before having his photograph taken.
Before he poses in the library, he
arranges on a shelf books about
Soviet defense and the Strategic
Defense Initiative.
In the "East Room" - the break-
fast room - Tanter asks to take a
seat in front of a bay window looking
out onto Burns Park. "I came out of
the White House, you see, and you
learn that photographic oppor-

tunities are all over what politics is
about," he explains.
A showman and an ardent
Reaganite Tanter seems to be at fir-
st. But the former member of the
National Security Council staff claims
no ambition to run for an elective of-
fice, and says he actually disagrees
with several Reagan administration
policies.j
THE APPARENT contradiction
isn't the only one that defines Tan-
ter's character.

deployment could proceed.
Another White House spokesma,
Edward Djerejian, said Reagan was
"not implying that we do away with
all missiles" before SDI deployment
and was merely emphasizing "the
ultimate goal is the elimination of of-
fensive nuclear weapons."
With that accomplished, Reagan
said, the defensive shield would be
needed "in case some madman gets
his hands on some (nuclear weapons)
and tries to blackmail other coun-
tries."
IN SEPARATE prepared answers
to written questions, Reagan, who last
week countered the latest Soviet arms
offer, said the United States seeks "a
balanced, fair, verifiable agreement
on reductions in nuclear arsenals.
Secretary of State George Shultz
met with Soviet Foreign Minister
Eduard Shevardnadze in Mascow for

nearly eight hours yesterday to plan
the agenda for this month's U.S.-
Soviet. summit meeting, which is ex-
pected to focus on arms control.
Shultz said in a brief airport arrival
statement that recent discussions
with Shevardnadze in the United
States were "candid and productive."
Shevardnadze, who met the secretary
at the airport, did not make any
remarks.
"I expect our meetings in Moscow
will be that way as well," Shultz said.
"I welcome this visit, and I hope it
will be a productive one."
Shevardnadze and Shultz shook
hands before entering a marble hall at
the Foreign Ministry annex to begin
their talks. Shevardnadze told repor-
ters, "I always expect results," but he
cautioned, "don't run ahead of even-
ts."

MSA, Sudarkasa debate minority advisors' role

By STEPHEN GREGORY
MSA members and Niara Sudarkasa, associate vice
president for academic affairs, yesterday disagreed on
students' role in minority recruitment and retention.
0 Sudarkasa, the University administrator responsible
for minority student affairs - including enrollment and
retention - said she favors the creation of task force
type committees to help her come up with suggestions on
issues such as undergraduate and graduate enrollment
and retention.
THE MICHIGAN Student Assembly, however, favors
the creation of a single minority student affairs com-
mission which it says would be more powerful because
students would share in the decision-making process
with Sudarkasa.
Josephson said Sudarkasa may be willing to agree on

MSA wants student feedback

an executive committee that would be comprised of the
chairs of the various committeeswhich he said would
give the students input into the decision making process
but that would leave the final word with the vice
president.
Upon Sudarkasa's appointment in February 1983,
Billy Frye, Univesrity vice president for academic af-
fairs and provost, said the administration expected to
form a commission made up of students, faculty and
alumni to "assist (her) and to help focus greater respon-
sibility."
Such a commission, Frye said, would be chaired by

Sudarkasa.
SUDARKASA SAID that there is a "genuine differen-
ce of opinion" between herself and the assembly.
"The form and structure of the proposed commission
is not the best vehicle for accomplishing what needs to
be done in order to increase minority enrollment and the
success of minority students," she said. "My approach
is more participatory and reaches out and embraces
more people and great diversity of opinions than could
be represented in a single commission," Sudarkasa

said.
MSA president Paul Josephson said task force com-
mittees probably would not have as much authority as
members of a commission chaired by Sudarkasa.
"(SUDARKASA) wants to make autonomous
decisions," Josephson said. "I want students to be
decision-makers."
But Sudarkasa said she is not opposed to student par-
ticipation. "If MSA chooses not to appoint any students
to the committees, I will see if there are other student
organizations (which) would be interested in helping
me."
Sudarkasa said she has already offered two positions
on a newly-formed committee to MSA members. That
task force, formed about two weeks ago, will look at un-
dergraduate minority recruitment.
