Prince Charles leads
polo team to victory



From AP and UPI
Prince Charles, the man who would be,
king, chipped in a goal yesterday that
helped his team defeat the All Stars
11-10 in a spirited polo match at the
Palm Beach Polo and Country Club.
Princess Diana, who watched from
a specially-built royal box, gave the
silver and porcelain victor's trophy to
her husband's teammate and

THE PRINCE, an avid polo player
who has a four-goal rating on a scale
of minus one to 10, thundered across a
well-manicured greensward with
some of the world's finest players.
Earlier, Gov. Bob Graham and
children bearing roses and Christmas
ornaments greeted the royal couple at
the airport. Charles and Diana also
planned to attend a $4 million benefit
dinner in one of the capitals of U.S.
high society.
Charles shrugged off an errant shot
that hit him from behind in the right
shoulder to make th econd-half goal
for the Palm Beach polo team, which
defeated an all-star squad 11-10.
Early in the match, he barely aver-
ted a spill when his horse buckled, but
the British prince recovered and
pulled his mount upright.

Early in the game, a single-engine
plane flew overhead trailing a banner

States believes such research is
clearly permissible under the 1972 An-
ti-Ballistic Missile treaty.
THE OFFICIAL, who briefed repor-
ters at the White House on the under-
standing he not be identified, in-
dicated the open laboratory proposal
would be part of an understanding on
Star Wars that could clear the way for
a comprehensive new arms control
agreement that also would include
sharp reductions in strategic offen-
sive nuclear weapons.
The official said the proposed
guidelines were being discussed
through the American ambassador in
Moscow, Arthur Hartman, and the
Soviet ambassador in Washington,
Anatoly Dobrynin.
Another official said yesterday that

it was a Soviet refusal to agree that
the United States can engage in
research into missile defense
technology that is blocking a potential
compromise that could lead to
guidelines at the summit.
In anther attack on the United
States, the Communist Party
newspaper Pravda dismissed U.S.
concern with regional conflicts and
accused Washington of threatening
"outright armed intervention in pur-
suit of its goals."
"Washington experts in
psychological warfare obviously
miscalculated when, trying to disc-
tract world public attention from the
pressing problems of struggle against
the arms race, they decided to give
priority to the problem of regional
conflicts." Pravda said.

Navy spy gets life sentence
NORFOLK, Va. - Arthur Walker, a retired Navy officer convicted of
supplying secrets to a Soviet spy ring run by his brother, was sentenced to
life in prison yesterday by a judge who refused to "treat this as a slap-on-
the-wrist case."
Walker, a 51-year-old retired Navy lieutenant commander, told U.S.
District Judge Calvitt Clarke that he wished to "apologize to all the
citizens of this country for what I did."
"I dishonored myself. I devastated my family. Nobody could be any
sorrier," he said.
Clarke then sentenced Walker, of Virginia Beach, to the maximum of
three life terms and four 10-year terms on seven counts of espionage, with
the sentences to run concurrently. Walker, who was also fined $250,000,
will be eligible for parole in10 years.
Walker's wife, Rita, the only witness at the sentencing hearing,
testified that he became suicidal while he was spying and had an affair
with his brother's wife in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
His brother, John Walker, 48, a retired Navy chief warrant officer, and
John Walker's son, Navy seaman Michael Walker pleaded guilty to
espionage Oct. 28. In exchange for his cooperation with authorities, John
Walker is to receive a life sentence and his son is to serve 25 years.
Liberian rebels attempt takeover
MONROVIA, Liberia - A former military commander attempted to top-
ple President Samuel Doe in a coup yesterday but Doe said he crushed the
revolt 13 hours after it began in this west African Nation founded by freed
U.S. slaves.
Doe called on rebel holdouts to lay down their arms and proclaimed a
dusk-to-dawn curfew.
"I take this opportunity to inform the nation that the coup has failed,"
Doe said in a "special statement" broadcast on a Monrovia radio station
that had been taken over by rebel forces 13 hours earlier.
"I am still the commander in chief of the armed forces of Liberia and
Head of state."
Diplomats in Monrovia had reported fierce fighting between loyal for-
ces and rebel troops led by former military commander Gen. Thomas
Quiwonkpa that left at least 16 people dead but it was not known if the
fighting had ended.
"It is not yet clear what forces are in control," the State Department in
Washington said late Yesterday.
Doe said in his broadcast he was in firm control of the country and he
called on the army, police and "all Liberians" to stand firmly behind
Bomber kills four in Lebanon
BEIRUT, Lebanon - A suicide bomber crashed a pickup truck loaded
with explosives into a monastery where six senior Christian politicians
were meeting yesterday. The bomber, two army guards and a woman
were killed and 26 other people were injured, police said.
They said a 2 -foot-thick stone wall shielded the politicians from the
main force of the blast, which gouged out a 20-foot-wide crater. Three
bombs exploded overnight in various parts of Moslem west Beirut, killing
four civilians and wounding eight, police reported earlier in the day.
The meeting in the Christian suburb of Aukar in east Beirut was to
discuss opposition to a draff Syrian-sponsored armistice agreement
reached last month by Lebanon's three strongest militias in an effort to
end the 10-year-old civil war.
The six politicians gathered at the monastery belong to the Lebanese
Front, a Christian political coalition which was excluded from the
An anonymous caller claiming to speak for the hitherto unknown
"Vanguard of Arab Christians" accused Christian leaders of seeking to
align Lebanon's Christian community with Israel and said, "This (the

Snow blasts Arizona, Utah

results will help efforts currently un-
derway at the University to increase
recruitment and retention of minority
students by identifying "an environ-
ment that's supportive of their
cultural diversity."
GOBIRIT SAID the "quality of life"
at the University is a major factor
not only in the enrollment of
minorities but in encouraging them to
remain in school.
"The goal is not simply to enroll,
but to graduate," he said.
The ideal environment for
achieving this goal would include "a
set of services and programs, a whole
set of institutional supports that will
permit the minority students, for in-
stance, to integrate their ethnic
background into th' academic ex-
perience," Gobirit saTd.
The survey contains questions
about housing, academics, social life,
and background information of the
students participating.
GOBIRIT SAID that the questions
concerning background information

were included to "give us a better
sense of the diversity and complexity
of what we call the minority groups."
He said a major problem some
minority students encounter at the
University is finding that other people
are not sensitive to their needs.
To make sure students know that
there is a support network at the
University willing tohelp them,
Gobirith said that a step will be to
emphasize the personal.
"WE WANT to be sure that the
whole process (recruitment and
measures taken to improve retehtion)
is personal," he said.
Gobirit would not identify any par-
ticular areas that he feels need im-
provement in order to better serve the
needs of minority students.
"We're waiting for the results of the
survey," he said.
Sudarkasa's report will also contain
recommendations on how to improve
minority retention. Those recommen-
dations will be based on more than
just the survey results, Gobirit said.
Sudarkasa's report will follow one
recently released by Roderick Linzie,
minority researcher for the Michigan
Student Assembly. In his report, Lin-
zie said that the University has not
focused enough attention on retention
programs in the past.
