By CAROLINE MULLER
Prominent Sovietologists, government officials,
and journalists yesterday commended President
Mikhail Gorbachev's efforts to reshape the Soviet
Union's domestic and foreign policy, but retained
a "wait-and-see" attitude toward what effect his
first year in office will have on Soviet-American
Speaking to more than 300 people in Chrysler
Auditorium on North Campus, 10 experts from
around the country, including former President
Gerald Ford, reviewed the 27th Party Congress,
Gorbachev's ambitious new leadership, and issues
such as the role of the media in U.S.-Soviet
relations and arms control.
THE MICHIGAN Briefing on Soviet Affairs
began with introductory remarks by Ford, who
concluded that he had seen no dramatic changes
since Gorbachev took office on March 11, 1985, and
that the static results of the Geneva arms control
talks last November did not surprise him.
"I never expectred anything more than what
came out of Geneva," he said, adding that there

was too much "media hype" and not enough
background work to address issues in depth.
Univerity political science Prof. Zvi Gitelman
commended the 55-year-old president on his
vigorous social reform programs, including his
campaign against alcoholism and his adherence to
a policy of "openness," but he concluded that the-
country has undergone no significant changes in
GITELMAN noted the dramatic changes in
governemt personnel since Gorbachev's step into
power and cited recent statistics that hold the
Soviet president responsible for the replacement
of 10 of the 15 life-term Politburo members, four of
the 15 Republic level party members, and 10 of the
24 heads of the Central Committee. Since 1982,
titelman said, 60 percent of the local governing
officials have been replaced, half by Gorbachev.
Gitelman emphasized that the replacements
were "benign transfers rather than demotions."
but noted that the new officials were primarily
young Russians who rose to their party ranks in
provincial towns, sheltered from the bureaucratic
activity in Moscow.
"In general, the new people are the ones who
have been out in the fields, in the regions, and have
a sense of what went wrong, and got 'fed up' with
Moscow," said Duke University political science
Prof. Jerry Hough.
"IT IS THE generation of the 20th Congress, ex-
posed to de-Stalinization, first exposed to the
West, that is now coming to power," said Hough,
who is author of How the Soviet Union Is Gover-
Former National Security Council adviser
Helmut Sonnenfeldt said he detected some
changes since Gorbachev's replacements but
cautioned against any rash diplomatic predic-
"We probably have the most provincial bunch of
people in the Politburo and in the-Secretariat than
we have had in a long time," Sonnenfeldt said.
Dusko Doder, seven-year Moscow Bureau Chief
for The Washington Post, said he thinks the
Eastern and Western press is manipulated by the
U.S. and the Soviet Union, and that the U.S. tends
to view the Soviet Union in Western terms.

"We should look back at Roosevelt's
presidency. Nobody in Congress said
that Social Security is going to be your
entire retirement," said Ford.
"There must be restraint."
Most citizens at the conference

less in return.
