Question: "Does the two-party system
offer you a real choice?"
Richard Banks, Ann
Arbor resident: I've
never seen any need in
having Democrats and Re-
publicans. A person should
run for what he believes in,
not for a party.
Julia Anderson, bio-
logy grad student:
There is only a limited
choice because there is so
much party politics.
Tim Greenamyre, Ann
Arbor resident: Not
necessarily. We are locked
into two parties, so the only
people who have a chance of
winning are the Democrats
and the Republicans.
Carol Fulgham, Ann
Arbor resident: I don't
think it makes a difference
which pqrty you pick.
They're going to do what-
ever they want anyway.
Bruce Roffi, Detroit
resident: No. It's prob-
ably all phoney, since all
their responses are to big
business, special interest,
John Else, Ann Arbor
resident: No. They're all
the same. There's no dif-
ference between the two
LSA freshman: Not
really. Basically the only
difference between the two
parties is the party label.
Herb Pfabe, Ann Arbor
resident: I would say
yes. Good, bad, or indif-
ferent, at least there are two,
although sometimes you
must choose the lesser of
LSA sophomore: I
think that there is a little
choice. They do have two
distinct viewpoints on some
things. It is important to
have two parties with two
John Philpot, Ann
Arbor resident: No,
there are only two names for
the same thing. It's only
the rich and famous that
make a difference. They do
what's in their best interest
and the poor man doesn't
have a say so.

COMPILED FROM ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTS
U.S., Soviets discuss weapons,
human rights in Helsinki
VIENNA, Austria-The United States and the Soviet Union traded
charges of human rights violations yesterday and then held extended
talks on how to carry out their Iceland summit pledges for sharp
reductions in nuclear weapons.
Secretary of State George Schultz, speaking at a 35-nation
conference aimed at improving relations between East and West, said " a
tragic human rights situation" existed in the Soviet Union and among
its Eastern allies. He warned that arms control would falter unless the
perceived abuses were corrected.
"Arms control cannot exist as a process in isolation from other
sources of tension in East-West relations," Shultz said in a stern
The Soviet foreign minister invited the 35 nations at the conference
to send representatives to Moscow, to meet on problems of "human
contact, information, culture and education." He lashed out at the United
States, where "violations of human rights are of a systematic and
Waite says press hindered him
LONDON-Anglican Church envoy Terry Waite said yesterday that
British press speculation that he was acting on behalf of governments
in his mission to free hostages in Lebanon had made his Middle East
contacts nervous and could cost him his life.
"There are certain speculative comments now moving around that
perhaps Mr. Waite is used by or closely associated wsith governments,"
Waite, in a rare burst of anger, told reporters at London's Heathrow
"Give me a break. It is your fellow journalist I am working for," he
said, referring to Associated Press reporter Terry Anderson, one of six
Americans still missing in Lebanon.
Waite spoke after returning from West Germany where American
David Jacobsen, released by his Lebanses captors Sudnay, was reunited
with his family.
Iran offers to help free U.S.
hostages held in Lebanon
NICOSIA, Cyprus-Two Iranian officials said yesterday that Tehran
is willing to work for the release of American and French hostages in
Lebanon in return for weapons, unfreezing of Iranian assets in the
United States and freedom for political prisoners.
But a third official, Prime Minister Hussein Musavi, said in a report
broadcast by Tehran radio that there was no possibility of negotiating
with the United States.
Although Musavi seemed to rule out direct talks, his comments did
not appear to contradict declarations by the other Iranian officials that a
deal could be made. The difference in emphasis was seen as part of.
growing internal struggle within the Iranian leadership. .
Parliament speaker Hashemi Rafsanjani ridiculed a purported mission
to Tehran by former National Security Adviser Robert McFarlane and
four other Americans to try to mend U.S.-Iranian relations. U.S.
officials have not confirmed the mission.
Coast Guard ups drug patrol
Some U.S. Coast Guard units, taking a lead from their Southern
cohorts, have beefed up patrols in search of illegal drugs on the Great
Lakes, but have found little evidence of large-scale trafficking.
Officials say they are cracking down on offenders who carry or use
illegal drugs while boating on the world's largest group of freshwater
lakes, as well as those trying to smuggle them across the border to or
"We're trying to get more presence on the water," said Lt. Christine
Balboni, operations officer for the Coast Guard office in Detroit.
"Hopefully it's a deterrent."
Balboni, whose district includes western Lake Huron and western
Lake Erie, said small amounts of marijuana, cocaine, hashish and
various narcotics have been seized recently on the lakes.
Rear Admiral Arnold Danielson, commander of the Ninth Coast
Guard District encompassing all the Great Lakes, announced last month
that the guard would increase cooperation with the U.S. Customs
agencies and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.
Prison director may be jailed
DETROIT- A federal judge could order state Corrections Director
Robert Brown Jr. to jail today for disobeying an order that he let
women prisoners earn college credits as can male inmates, officials said.
U.S. District Judge John Feikens has set a hearing for 1:30 P.M.
today on a request that Brown and the Department of Corrections be
held in contempt of Feikens' order in a class action suit brought by
" The judge is not happy with ua and he may send Bob to jail,"
prison spokeswoman Gail Light said Thursday.
At issue is the department's failure to offer four-year college degree
courses to inmates at the Florence Crane Women's Facility in
Coldwater, Light said.
The suit charged the Corrections Department with violating the
constitutional rights of women prisoners by denying them equal
oppportunities with male inmates for education and other programs.

Students say the windowless,
drab room in which they are
allowed to smoke is uncomfortable,
and it gets filled with smoke
because librarians don't want to
open the door. LSA junior Karen
Hellow, a non-smoker, is glad that
the smoking area is confined to
room eight. "I don't like to be
around smokers," she said. "It
makes my clothes smell."
But business school junior Leila

The Central Campus Recreation

Dick said there are other places
on campus with no-smoking
policies. Until January, whether or
not to implement a smoking ban
in campus buildings is up to
"individual managers, based upon
their own feelings," he said.
