Arms talks will resume

President Reagan and Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev,
ending the diplomatic tug-of-war
provoked by Moscow's arrest of an
American journalist, agreed
yesterday to meet in Iceland in 10
days to resume the search for an
arms control accord.
The surprise summit was
arranged as part of a deal that
brought release Monday of
Moscow correspondent Nicholas
Daniloff and the expulsion
yesterday of accused Soviet spy
Gennadiy Zakharov. Another
element was a Soviet pledge to
free Yuri Orlov, a prominent
Soviet dissident exiled to Siberia,
as well as Orlov's wife, next
HINTING at the carrot that
lured hum away from several
apparently inflexible public
positions taken in recent weeks,
Reagan told reporters, "The
chances are better than they've
been for many years for reaching
some agreement on arms
Secretary of State George
Shultz said those chances include
"reasonable prospects" for
reducing medium-range
missiles in Europe.
U.S. officials refused to call
the Oct. 11-12 session between
Reagan and Gorbachev a
summit, and said the
administration did not expect the
talks to produce the signing of a
new arms accord.
BUT REAGAN told world
financial leaders a short time
later at the International
Monetary Fund that the October
session is intended "to prepare the

ground for a productive summit."
Shultz said he still hopes a
summit can take place later this
year in the United States, as
agreed to by Reagan and
Gorbachev last year in Geneva.
The one-on-one talks in
Reykjavik, the secretary said,
"will give a special push" to the
various talks already going on at
lower levels.
Shultz said the hurry-up
meeting scheduled in less than
two weeks in the capital of the tiny
NATO island nation was
proposed by Gorbachev in a letter
delivered to Reagan on Sept. 19,
which also contained the Soviet
Union's latest bargaining

position on proposed nuclear
weapons reductions.
THE TWO sides had been
carrying on arms control
discussions at various levels
while trying separately to settle
the case of Daniloff, whose arrest
on what Reagan insisted were
"trumped up" spy charges cast a
pall over U.S. -Soviet relations
and dimmed prospects for a
summit this year.
Reagan insisted he would
never trade Daniloff for
Zacharov, who he said was caught
red-handed trying to buy U.S.
defense secrets for his
government. But shultz and
Soviet Foreign -Minister Eduard

Shevardnadze, in several hours
of closed-door meetings in
Washington arid New Yor,
worked out the package deal that
gave both sides what they wanted
most-with just enough face-
saving provisions to enable both to
claim victory.
Reagan, for instance, insisted
yesterday that "there was no
commection" between Daniloff'
release and Sakharov's
ASKED WHY that shouldn't be
seen as the trade Reagan said he.
would never make, Shultz
suggested it had something to do
with timing.

Zakharov pleads no contest,
ordered to return to Moscow

NEW YORK (AP)-Soviet
U.N. worker Gennadiy Zakharov
pleaded no contest yesterday to
three counts of spying and was
ordered to leave the country
within 24 hours, bringing an end
to a superpower impasse.
During a four-minute hearing
in U.S. District Court in
Brooklyn, Ju-dge Joseph
McLaughlin sentenced Zakharov
to five years' probation.
"It is a condition of probation,,
that the defendant depart the
United States within 24 hours and
not return to the United States for
the entire period of probation," the
judge said.
Zakharov spoke only when
asked by the judge if his plea was

voluntary and if he understood
the agreement. "Yes," he replied.
However, he smiled as he left
the courtroom, telling reporters
that he felt "great." Later, when
his car stopped at a traffic light
two blocks away, he rolled his
window down and told reporters
he loved the American people and
hoped to return after his probation
expired. He said he was happy to
go home.
His car was seen later headed
south on the New Jersey
Turnpike. The U.S. attorney's
office said he would take a 4 p.m.
Aeroflot flight from Dulles
airport in Washington.

Greeks face hassles finding

more room.

In their search for new
housing, members of the
University's Greek system find
themselves battling city zoning
codes, irate neighbors, and
unflattering stereotypes.
"It's a very big problem for the
Greek system as a whole," says
David Reilly, a spokesman for the
Interfraternity Council. Due to
the Greek system's growing
popularity, many fraternities and
sororities want to find new houses
or expand existing ones. They are
prevented, however, by a lack of

housing in Ann Arbor and
oppostion from neighbors.
"They have the ear of the city
government. All we can say is
we need housing," says Reilly.
"We do philanthropic works, but
that's not what the community
WHAT THE neighbors
around some fraternity houses do
see is a threat to the tranquility of
their neighborhood. "They feel
like they should party until four
o'clock in .the morning, scream
obscenities until four o'clock in
the morning or at four o'clock in

the afternoon when children are
outside playing. They're doing
things that I'm sure they'd never
dream of doing in their own
neighborhoods," says Ann Arbor
resident Vickie Danhof, who
lives near two fraternity houses.
Danhof says the Greek
system's growing popularity is
bound to reverse eventually, so the
rapid expansion of the amount of
Greek housing is not necessarily
a good idea.,
"These houses are not being
kept the way they were bought;
they're making huge additions.

Who's going to live in those
houses when the sororities go
under again, which is inevitable.
They don't realize that for the past
year we've been extremely
"We knew that when we moved
into the neighborhood that there
would be different groups, but we
liked the diversity. Now it's out of
hand," Danhof says. "We're not
their enemies, but it's not being
construed that way. It's got to be
give and take, and we're doing
all the giving."
"I WOULDN'T be opposed if

they moved into a house already
used by a large student group,"
says another neighbor, Andrea
Van Houweling. "They live so
much more densely on a lot than
we do that it causes more problems
than parties - for example,
garbage pick-up, deliveries, and
cars, cars, cars."
Parking is a tremendous
problem for areas populated by the
Greeks, who primarily live
around North Burns Park.
Three-quarters of neighborhood
houses are family homes, but
many of the parking spaces are

utilized by students. "We all
knew we moved into an area that
had them, but we're at a saturation
point," Van Houweling says.
To remedy this situation,
residents in 42 out of 45 North
Burns Park homes have signed a
petition to prevent the further
expansion of fraternities -and
"They have never been worse
than this year," says Van
Houweling. "Their houses are not
large enough for their parties."

Court enters not-guilty plea

Retgeneral Charged

for alleged
Christopher Skinner, the 20-
year-old Ann Arbor man charged
with sexually assaulting two
University students almost three
weeks ago, stood mute at his
arraignment yesterday. Judge
Edward Deake entered a plea of
not guilty on his behalf.
Skinner is charged with
breaking and entering, breaking
and entering with intent to
commit criminal sexual assault,
and breaking and entering with
first degree rape. He is being held
on $105,000 bond.

Department, Skinner was

rapist of students

arrested for prowling around
residents' homes two days after
the second reported attack on
Greenwood Street Sept.12. He was
apprehended near the location of
the rape.
Skinner was held on $50,000
bond while police organized a
line-up, and both assault victims
identified him as their assailant.
Both women described the
suspect as a black man in his 20s.
The method of attack was the
same in both cases - the assailant
broke into the house, covered his
victim's mouth with his hand,
and assaulted her. Police officers
stopped and questioned Skinner
near East Ann Street nine

minutes after the first victim
described her assailant, Heath
Last week, Skinner waived his
right to a preliminary
examination, where the
prosecution has to prove that a
crime was committed and show
that there is enough evidence
against the defendant to bring
him to trial.
The case will is scheduled to be
tried in the Washtenaw County
Circuit Court in December.

DETROIT (AP) - A retired
brigadier general was arrested
yesterday by the FBI and charged
with bribing a U.S. Army captain
in hopes of winning a $1 billion
