TRIPOLI, Libya - Moammar
Khadafy's adopted infant daughter
was killed and two of his young sons
were wounded in the massive U.S. air
raid on Libya late Monday that
drew condemnation from many
nations and terrorist vows of
retaliation against Americans.
Sources close to Khadafy said the
Libyan leader was not injured in the
attacks, which President Reagan or-
dered to retaliate for Libyan in-
volvement through terrorism.
At least 17 civilians were killed in
Tripoli and about 100 others were
wounded in the attack - the biggest
U.S. air raid since the Vietnam War -
which devastated residential areas of
MEANWHILE, one of the 18 Air
Force F-111F fighter-bombers that at-
tacked targets in Libya was missing
and Pentagon officials did not rule out
the possibility that it may have been
shot down in operation El Dorado
Pentagon sources held out little
hope of finding the two-man crew.
In Libya yesterday anti-aircraft fire
resounded over the Libyan capital,
and Libyan radio reported about an
hour later that U.S. aircraft bombed
the city once again.
The radio report, monitored in Lon-
don, came hours after Libyan forces
fired at a U.S. telecommunications
facility on Lampedusa, an Italian
island in the Mediterranean.
LIBYA yesterday summoned fellow
Arabs to an "hour of revenge" against
America for its predawn air raid on
Libya state radio said the attack on
Lampedusa was in retaliation for U.S.
bombing raids near the port cities of
Tripoli and Benghazi early yesterday
Libyan radio said the facility on the
island was destroyed, but Italian and
U.S. officials in Rome and
Washington said there were no repor-
ts of injuries or damage.
In Washington, the Reagan ad-
ministration said the U.S. attack, or-
dered in retaliation for what the
United States charged was Libyan in-
volvement in an April 5 Berlin bom-
bing that killed a U.S. soldier and a
Turkish woman, was designed solely
to destroy terrorist-related targets.
BUT A tour of Tripoli yesterday
revealed heavy damage to civilian
areas and doctors at Tripoli hospitals
reported heavy civilian casualties.
Hospital director Mohammed
Muafa said Khadafy's 15-month-old
daughter, Hana, was killed when U.S.
bombs smashed into Khadafy's
headquarters at the Azizzia com-
pound on the outskirts of Tripoli. The
girl, adopted by Khadafy and his wife
11 months ago, died of blast injuries
2% hours after the attack, he said.

sons - Sef el Arab, 4, and Camis, 3 -

Attack draws mixed reactions
From AP and UPI
The Soviet Union accused the United States yesterday of
threatening world peace by attacking Libya and canceled
a planned meeting between Secretary of State George
Shultz and Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze.
In a strongly worded government statement, the Soviets
condemned the attacks by U.S. warplanes as a "criminal
action" and said the American "administration itself has
made impossible at this stage the planned meeting on the
level of the ministers of foreign affairs of our two coun-
Meanwhile, other world leaders expressed their
opinions of the attack.
PRIME MINISTER Margaret Thatcher, a lone voice of
support among America's West European allies, robustly
defended Monday's U.S. raid on Libya and her decision to
allow the use of British-based American jet bombers.

Although the Democrats' new 7-4
majority on the Ann Arbor City Coun-
cil gives them the power to control
city spending for the next year, city
politicians disagree over whether the
new council will, allocate more money
for social services and other
traditional democratic programs.
Republicans express concern that
the Democrats are now strong enough
to avoid compromising on social
issues when the council begins
discussing next year's city budget on
Monday. Democrats, both incumben-
ts and those elected last week, con-
tend that the reputation as big spen-
ders is exaggerated.
City Administrator Godfrey Collins,
who will propose" a tentative budget
this Monday, would not comment on
its contents. The final budget must be
passed by the end of next month, ac-
cording to a city law.
"PROBABLY you will see a definite
increase in human services," said
councilmember Jeannette Middleton
(R-Third Ward). "I would think that
would be the first thing they would
"The city will also be getting into
housing," Middleton said. "The city
will probably be infusing money into
housing for lower incomes, like Forest
Hills and Arrowhead and Colonial
Square." These housing complexes
are co-ops for which the city sub-

zi of their West Quad dorm
Engineering sophomores Bill Grose and Tom Harvey share a drink in the
W t Qeve
By LISA DRESNER
When engineering sophomore Tom
Harvey comes home from a hard day
of classes, he can look forward to
relaxing in his custom-made jacuzzi.
Later, he can cook dinner in his
microwave oven, or curl up on his
couch next to an electric fireplace and
watch the television set which is
housed in an elegant entertainment
Although it sounds like a luxury
condominium, Harvey's dwelling is
just a West Quad dorm room, and he
built or restored almost everything in
it by himself.
The technical whiz designed his
dream room at the end of last year.
Selecting a room with a sink that
could provide water for the jacuzzi, he
carefully took measurements and
drew up his plans.
INSTEAD OF spending a lot of
money on the room, Harvey
scavenged for building materials and
used his engineering skills to restore
The cushions on his couch, for in-
stance, are sailboat cushions which he
got through the marina his family used
to own. A boat pump from the same
marina drains the jacuzzi.
Harvey's microwave oven,
television set, and refrigerator had all
been discarded by neighbors who said
they were beyond repair. He fixed all
three for under $2.
OVER THE summer, Harvey built
a double loft which he "just planned
out in my head," and beautified the
electric fireplace he had built for his
room last year. He came up to school
a few days before classes started to
install the couch, entertainment cen-
ter, and the deck to hold the jacuzzi.
News about the luxuries spread
quickly throughout the dorm - so
quickly, in fact, that Harvey decided
to wait until the excitement subsided
to bring in the jacuzzi.

In an emergency meeting last night,
about 70 members of the Graduate
Employees Organization (GEO)
unanimously voted to keep
negotiating with the University
throughout thewsummer for their 1985
contract. The old contract expired
GEO,the official union for Univer-
sity teaching and staff assistants,
remains deadlocked with University
The union is asking for a 8 percent
salary increase, a 15 percentincrease
in tuition waivers, paid teaching
assistant training, and other benefits.
however, are offering GEO members
a 3 percent salary increase. They
have not agreed to any of the union's
other demans and have made only
semantic changes in rules governing
sick leave and job security.
Before the vote, GEO members
discussed possible responses to the
deadlock, including striking, starting
a letter campaign to University
departments and the media, ad-
dressing the University Board of
Regents, and writing to members of
"We'renot trying to make a profit
out of going to graduate school. We're
just trying to meet our expenses,''
said Jeff Frooman, GEO vice
president and member of the
"The average TA makes $5,000 or
less, and an 8 percent increase isn't
that much," Frooman said.
Both he and GEO President Martin
Doettling added that GEO would be
willing to "horse trade" on various
parts of the package deal.
"We're willing to give and take if
they are willing to give and take,"
At the meeting, GEO members also
voted to create department steward
positions. The stewards would be
union members and would provide a
link between GEO and its member-
ship, Doettling said.
During the hour-and-a-half
meeting, members debated whether
and when GEO should strike. Some
suggested an immediate walk-out,
while others opposed it because it
would hurt graduating seniors.
"Come September, if we don't have
any results that we can present to our
membership, we will consider taking
a strike vote," Doettling said.
THE STRIKE proposal would need
to have a majority support of the 1,200
GEO has not gone on strike since
"We'll be happy to bargain with
them all summer long," said Daniel
Gamble, manager of compensation
and staff relations and a negotiator
for the University.

0'U' Pres. opposes bylaw change
By KERY MURAKAMI
University President Harold Shapiro reiterated yester-
day that he opposes changing a Board of Regents's bylaw
that prevents jailed South African activist Nelson Man-
dela from receiving an honorary degree from the Univer-
Shapiro told 23 students gathered in his conference
room that he will not ask the regents at their meeting this
Thursday and Friday to make an exception for Mandela.
The discussion lasted over an hour and a half and grew
heated at times.
. Shapiro added that the issue is not on the agenda for the
regents's meeting. Regents can raise and discuss issues at
any time, but would probably not .make such a shift
without the president's support.
Regents contacted last night refused to comment.
THE REGENTS in January rejected honoring Univer-
sity alumnus Raoul Wallenberg because of the bylaw,
which prohibits the University from giving honorary
degrees to those who cannot accept them in person.
Wallenberg, who saved the lives of thousands of
Hungarian Jews in Nazi Germany, was arrested in the
Soviet Union shortly after the war and is believed to be
Mandela, recognized as the symbol of the anti-apartheid
movement in South Africa, has been serving a life senten-
ce since 1962 for leading the South African revolutionary
group, the African National Congress.
Students yesterday also admonished Shapiro for not
alerting them of the bylaw when Mandela was nominated
last October by Thomas Holt, director of Afro-American
Studies at the University.
SHAPIRO apologized, but said he had received letters
supporting Mandela from people who mentioned the
bylaw. Barbara Ransby, a leader of Free South Africa
Coordinating Committee (FSACC) said students found out
about the policy only last week during a discussion with
University Vice President for State Relations Richard
"I think that constitutes the University acting in bad
faith," Ransby said.
