Dole raps Shultz on Iran
WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate
Republican leader Bob Dole rebuked
Secretary of State George Shultz
yesterday for "not doing anything"
to support President Reagan in the
Iran arms controversy, and
suggested Reagan act quickly to
"remove some of the problem."
Dole did not mention any
administration officials by name
when he said the president should
move to "cut our losses," as the
Iran issue continued to consume the
administration and reports circulated
that top advisers were calling for
the ouster of Shultz, White House
Chief of Staff Donald Regan and
National Security Adviser John
Dole, after praising Shultz's past
performance, said, "But I think
right now they ought to circle the
wagons; either that, or let a couple
of the wagons go over the cliff."
"I think the president was well-
intentioned, well-motivated," in his
decision to send arms to Iran, Dole
said in an interview on CBS-TV's
"Face the Nation."
"The next step is, I think, to
remove some of the problem."
With his comments yesterday,
Dole (R-Kan.) added his voice to
others calling for presidential action
to restore administration unity as
details continued to emerge about
the Iran operation.
WHITE HOUSE spokesman
Roman Popaduik said he had no
information on reports in The
Washington Post and Los Angeles
Times that a group of presidential
advisers was pushing for a high-
level shakeup in Reagan's staff.
Dole said Reagan told him
earlier yesterday he knew nothing
about such an effort.
"It's all a little bizarre, frankly,"
said Dole. "The only person who
could put this to rest is the
president, and it would seem to me
the quicker the better."
The Post said Attorney General
Edwin Meese and others had
sounded out former Secretary of
Transportation Drew Lewis about
taking over as White House chief of
staff. But Patrick Korten, deputy,
director of public affairs for the
Justice Department, said he knew of
no such overtures. Harvey Turner, a
spokesman for Lewis, who is now
president of the Union Pacific
Corp., said he would check with
Lewis. When a reporter attempted
to reach Turner later by telephone,
however, there was no answer.
Shultz has made clear .his,
opposition to the arms shipments
and said last week that officials
behind the operation had told him
little about it.

Camp victims demand apology
(Continued from Page 1)
He was joined by history graduate
student Scott Wong, who teaches a
course at the University entitled
"The Asian-American Experience."
Forty years after their detention,
many of the Japanese-Americans
who were detained are still seeking
compensation for what many scho-
lars have called the worst violation
-of civil rights in the United States
Last Monday, the Supreme
Court agreed to hear one internee's
case against the federal government.
The Court will rule if the detention
:was unconstitutional, and if so,
how much restitution the victims
should be paid.
"I think for the U.S. government
to really seriously apologize, ser-
iously admit their error, it has to be
.transformed into monetary terms in
order to make it really a serious
substantial expression 'of regret,"
said Morikawa, }
The Japanese-Americans who are
seeking restitution want $25,000.
apiece for their personal losses.
They are also demanding a formal
apology from the President and
"some sort of law, or statute, or
something that might give a legal
guarantee that it cannot happen
again-to anyone in this country,"
The internment was activated
when President Theodore Roosevelt
signed Executive Order 9066 in
February 1942. The order, which
did not require approval by
Congress, stated that all Japanese-
Americans living in California,
Oregon, and Washington were to
report to their designated assembly
After staying in the assembly
centers for three to four months,
internees were shipped to more per-
manent concentration camps. The
camps were designed to house about
20,000 people in long rows of
barracks similar to those iii prisoner
of war camps.
Life in the camps wasn't easy.
Meals usually consisted of beans
and neck bones from a nearby
slaughterhouse. "We learned to
appreciate small blessings. Dessert
in the form of Jello was a treat,
even though the summer heat
turned it into liquid beforeit was
eaten," Morikawa said.
Everyone was required to work
while in the camps. Doctors worked
in the hospitals; people skilled in
agriculture worked on farms. Some
adults with teaching skills estab-
lished schools which were attended
regularly by the children.
Morikawa, now a Reverend at
the First Baptist Church of Ann
Arbor, served his time in the camp
as a minister for $17 a month. "We
all cooperated together, and instead
of having denominational churches,
we all worked together in one
common community," he said.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The
nations of the world are spending
nearly $900 billion on weapons in
1986, a year designated as the

That breaks down to a historic
high of $1.7 million a minute,

percent of the world's gross
national product, the private report
compiled by Ruth Leger Sivard
Last year, military spending was
estimated at $800 billion, and since

Soviet Union is second in weapons

The United States spent roughly
$268 billion in 1985 on weapons,
and the Soviets about $237 billion,

PEACE WITH ISRAEL.
Six months after the U.N. partition plan of Palestine, David Ben
Gurion proclaimed in the Israeli Declaration of Independence
(Tel Aviv, Israel, Friday, May 14, 1948):
...We call upon the sons of the Arab people dwelling in Israel to play their part in building
the State. ...
We extend the hand of peace to all the states around us and to their peoples, and we call
upon them to cooperate in mutual helpfulness with the independent Jewish Nation in its
Land. The State of Israel is nrenared to make its contribution in a concerted effort for the ad-
