Do you feel that diplomatic and economic sanctions again-
st Libya will curb international terrorism?"

Jim Wirtanen, graduate
student: I don't think it is an
effective move on our part.
Our supposed allies won't
get behind what Reagan has
proposed. It has to be a
united effort between our

Hala Talaat, linguistics
Ph.D. candidate: I think it
might work with Libya itself
but it may not work for other
Palestinian organizations.
We should address the cause
by investigating the reasons
behind their actions. By
taking these actions they are
trying to say something so
by listening we may be able
to solve the problems.

Beth Wydra, LSA senior:
Diplomatic and economic
sanctions should be taken
before any military action.
We should explore all other
possible alternatives before
we fight violence with

Joseph Pratt, LSA senior: If
a significant number of
states become involved in
these sanctions then I think
it can work, but if only the
United States is involved I
don't think it will work.

Rose Purrelli, visiting
student: No because when
you are dealing with
terrorists they won't react.
Since they take drastic
measures they will only
react to drastic counterac-
tions. In the past economic
sanctions haven't been com-
pletely effective.

Mark Morgan, LSA
sophomore: Definitely not.
The lack of world support
will dilute any effect the
sanctions might have. If
Canada will not ally with us
what chance do we have?

Angie Igrisan, LSA junior:
No. If anything the sanctions
will increase terrorism. An-
ti-American sentiment is
bringing the Arab states
together. These people are
angry at President Reagan
and I thing they will continue
to fight.

John Stein, LSA junior: I
think they are pretty useless
measures. To really stop in-
ternational terrorism some
forceful military actions will
have to be taken against the
terrorists and those who
support them.

Peter Tucker, LSA junior:
No. With the increasing
number of people willing to
run suicide missions the only
thing that will counter
terrorism is to fight force
with force.

Rita Slywka, LSA junior: If
it is just us involved it won't
work. Other countries will
have to get involved. Italy
and West Germany will also
have to agree to economic
sanctions. But I think that
it's a good start.

Philippine vote count continues
MANILA, Philippines - The government-dominated National Assembly
held the first meeting yesterday on its official vote canvass, which by law
will determine who won the disputed presidential election.
In the slow count of ballots cast last Friday, the government election
commission showed President Ferdinand E. Marcos leading by 53 per-
cent to 47 and an unofficial count by a citizens' poll-watching group of
more votes showed challenger Corazon Aquino ahead by the same
The election was marred by violence, which continued yesterday. A
gunman fired at about 50 Aquino supporters in an open truck from which
Mrs. Aquino had delivered a speech earlier, killing a 20-year-old man and
wounding a woman.
At the gathering in suburban Makati, Mrs. Aquino had told 2,000
cheering supporters she was "claiming the people's due," and pledged:
"We are going to take power. The people have won this election."
Mrs. Aquino accuses Marcos of widespread election fraud in attem-
pting to extend his 20 years of rule over this archipelago of 7,100 islands.
U.S.,Libya hold simultaneous
maneuvers off Libyan coast
WASHINGTON - The United States, stepping up its pressure on Libya on-
ce again, has ordered two aircraft carriers back toward the Libyan
coastline for another series of air and sea maneuvers, the Pentagon said
The decision was disclosed through the release of a "Notice of Intent"
to conduct flight operations within an area that is overseen by air-traffic
controllers in the Libyan capitol of Tripoli.
The notice specifies that operations will be conducted by the Coral Sea
and Saratoga within the Tripoli flight information region from 7 p.m.
today to 7 p.m. Friday.
The last such exercise was conducted from Jan. 24-31. Unlike that exer-
cise, the new American maneuvers will occur at the same time Libyan
sea and air forces are conducting an exercise of their own in the area. The
two countries also will be operating off Libya's coast at a time when
Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy has ordered his air force to intercept
civilian Israeli airliners flying over the Mediterranean.
During the last such U.S. exercise, which involved the same carriers,
Libyan and American fighters frequently crossed paths but avoided any
Soviets to release dissident
BERLIN - Soviet officials have agreed to release dissident Anatoly Sh-
charansky moments before three Western spies in the expected East-
West prisoner exchange because the United States insisted he not be
treated like an undercover agent, a newspaper said yesterday.
A U.S. official, meanwhile, confirmed at a news briefing that Sh-
charansky would be part of the swap, expected to take place today on the
Glienicke Bridge between West Berlin and Communist East Germany.
He indicated Shcharansky would leave Berlin immediately from the U.S.
military's Tempelhof airport and head for Israel.
Shchaaransky, a mathematician and computer scientist, has said his
only crime was seeking to emigrate from the Soviet Union to Israel.
Western specialists on the Soviet Union have said.Moscow hopes by
freeing Shcharansky along with imprisoned spies to convey to the world
its position that he is a spy, too.
A U.S. diplomatic source in Berlin, speaking on condition of anonymity,
told the Associated Press, "It (the swap) will happen on the bridge before
5 brutally killed in S. Africa
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Police said yesterday that they found
the bodies of five blacks who were bound, stabbed and burned with what
has become known as the "necklace"-gasoline-soaked tires placed
around them and set afire.
The killings appeared to be part of the struggle between rival anti-apar-
theid groups that differ on how to fight white-minority rule.
Four of the bodies were found together, with more tires piled on them to
form a funeral pyre, and the fifth was a short distance away. Press repor-
ts said the men may have been sentenced to death by unofficial "people's
courts" operating in black townships.
The necklace has become a ritual method of killing blacks accused of
collaborating with the white government, including policemen and mem-
bers of township councils, during the 17 months of anti-apartheid violence
in which more than 1,100 people have died.
He said the men probably were killed Sunday.
L. American ministers urge
U.S. to support peace effort
WASHINGTON - Eight Latin American foreign ministers yesterday told
Secretary of State George Shultz the Reagan administration should put
its weight behind a broadly-supported Central American peace effort.
The foreign ministers, representing Colombia, Mexico, Panama,
Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil, Peru and Uruguay, also told Shultz the
United States should stop supporting Nicaraguan guerrilla forces fighting
to overthrow the leftist Nicaraguan government.
The ministers have said they want the administration to resume
bilateral talks with the Nicaraguan government to reduce tensions in the
region. The United States broke off the talks last year.
State Department spokesman Charles Redman said he had no im-

mediate report on Shultz' meeting with the foreign ministers. In general
terms he said the United States has "a continued interest in seeing peace
come to the region and the Contadora process is one we welcomed."
Peruvian Foreign Minister Allen Wagner Tizon, speaking at a meeting
held earlier in the day at the Colombian Embassy, said the ministers
were particularly interested in whether "the United States was willing to
collaborate" with the peacemaking effort, particularly "in the areas
which effect them more directly."

Housing my
evict student
(Continued from Page 1)
Other Couzens residents have
criticized Jackson for refusing to
allow kegs of beer in the dorm.
Brown said he was shocked when
the eviction notice arrived because he
thought the matter had been resolved.
Yesterday, he again talked to
Associate Director of Housing John
Finn, who sent the eviction notice.
BROWN SAID he realized that "I
should have talked to Finn in the first
place. The things in the poster really
weren't relevant." He added that he
holds no animosity toward Jackson.
"Things turned out pretty positively
in that he (Finn) was concerned for
me. He's been really good throughout
this whole thing. They're going out in
my behalf," Brown said.
Brown's friends said they thought
the 24-hour notice of eviction was too
short and unfair, and responded by
circulating a petition on his behalf,
which resulted in about 150
