Student caucus chair resigns
By REBECCA BLUMENSTEIN
The newly formed Student
Caucus on Strategic Planning has
been plagued with yet another
resignation. The caucus' chair-
person announced yesterday that
financial obligations were forcing
him to resign from all voluntary
Ex-Chairperson Paul Josephson
will not terminate his involvement
with the University, however. The
former Michigan Student Assembly
President has accepted a paid
position in the Office of Student
Services, where he intends to draft
proposals for Interim University
President James Duderstadt's
Undergraduate Initiatives Fund.
The caucus originally began in
December as Duderstadt's unique
way to involve students in the
University's planning process.
However, the caucus has since
become a political sore spot
between the MSA and Josephson.
Controversy over the caucus
began when the MSA President
Kurt Muenchow resigned from the
caucus two weeks ago, accusing
Chairperson Paul Josephson with
usurping MSA's right to appoint
students to University committees.
The assembly also passed a
resolution condemning the caucus
and forbidding MSA members to
Josephson maintains that.
Duderstadt had asked both him and
Muenchow to bypass MSA and
appoint students without assembly
"In this case I think that Duder-
stadt was justified in bypassing
MSA, but I understand Kurt's
trepidations about this becoming a
regular pattern," said Josephson.
Josephson's decision to resign
came as a surprise to the caucus'
"Our discussions have been.
going well, and I hope we will be
unaffected," said caucus member
Morris Kakuda, president of the
Asian American Association.

Rally protests nuclear tests
(Continued from Page 1)
"We are trying to increase the
visibility of the campaign to stop
nuclear testing." said Cynthia
Wenzel, one of the organizers of the
rally. "This is thirteen groups, all
of whom feel the same way about it
- that it has to stop, by every
nation in the world."
Folk singer Dave Crossland, an
LSA senior, opened the rally,
which featured speeches by Ann
Arbor City Councilmember Jeff
Epton (D-Third Ward), the
Michigan Student Assembly's
Military Research Advisor Tamara
Wagner, Greeks for Peace Co-
chairperson Jean Besanceney, and
SANE member Jackie Victor.
"(The test) makes a real clear
sign to everyone what the Reagan
administration's view on making
peace with the Soviets is," Victor
Epton said the arms race directly
hurts Ann Arbor since the end of
the federal revenue sharing program.
"You take a million and a half
dollars away from the city of Ann
Arbor, which is what you do when
you decide to build a Trident
submarine and arm it with cruise
missiles, and our ability to deal
with those problems which are
local is diminished," Epton said.
Wagner, also a member of
Greenpeace, emphasized the impor-
tance of enforcing the University's
classified research guidelines.
"This University is directly
connected to escalation of the arms
race through bids for classified
research, for bids for (University
Research Initiative) projects, Air
Force, Army, and Navy projects, all
of which are contributing to the
situation we are facing," Wagner
Crossland closed with songs as
the "mushroom cloud" was dis-
assembled. The balloons and mes-
sages tags were handed out to the
crowd and passers-by.
Protesters the marched to the
Federal Building, where the bal-
loons were released.

the Making of War," discussed a
foreign policy and terrorism
situation. Participants included
Ford, Meese, CBS News anchor -
man Dan Rather, former Secretary
of State Alexander Haig, and
University Law Prof. John Jackson.
Except for invited guests of the
panelists, spectators were not
admitted for this session.
Much of the second session,
called "The President, the Budget,
and Separation of Powers," ended
up being a debate on a balanced
budget amendment. The premise for
this discussion was that Arthur
Smith, former governor of the
fictional midwestern state of Idyllia,
is elected president in 1988. The
discussion drifted away from the
hypothetical situation as Meese
began to argue for a balanced budget
Several panelists proposed alter -
natives to the amendment. Econ -
omist Alan Greenspan suggested
Congress require a 60 percent 'yes'
vote on money bills.
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah)
recommended calling a constitu -
tional convention to force Congress
to make changes, but other
panelists disagreed. One problem
upon which many of the panelists
concurred was that because a
constitutional convention has never
been called, no one really knows
what to do.
Economist Alice Rivlin and
Ford said any change recommended
by a constitutional amendment or
convention would not go into effect
for several years, but help is needed

Soviets attack Afghan rebels
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Soviet tank columns with thousands of
soldiers attacked Moslem guerilla forts in eastern Afghanistan yesterday
as warplanes and artillery blasted the outnumbered insurgents, sources
in Pakistan said.
Guerrilla officials and other sources reported a second day of fierce
fighting in Paktia province with Soviet and Afghan government forces
driving on key guerrilla bases close to the frontier.
An Afghan air force MiG-21 jet fighter-bomber was shot down by
guerrilla anti-aircraft defenses yesterday and several other planes appeared
to have been damaged, the officials said.
The attack was the first major action by Soviet forces since Af -
ghanistan's government began a unilateral cease-fire Jan. 15.
U.S. journalist to leave Iran
NICOSIA, Cyprus - Iran said yesterday that American journalist
Gerald F. Seib had not left the country but would do so within 24
hours. He was arrested during a government-sponsored press tour and
accused of spying.
Seib, a 30-year-old Cairo-based reporter for the Wall Street Journal,
was in a group of 57 foreign journalists invited to visit the southern
front in the six and a half year-old war with Iraq.
In Ottawa, Canada's Foreign office said it had been advised that
Philip Engs, a Canadian engineer arrested Dec. 2 on espionage charges,
also would be released soon. An American telecommunications
specialist and a British businessman also are imprisoned in Iran on
Iran-Contra uproar shows
need for trust, say officials.
WASHINGTON - The chairman of the Senate Intelligence.
Committee said yesterday the Iran-Contra uproar shows the need to
restore trust between Congress and the spy agencies, while Reagan
administration officials appealed to Congress to continue the flow of
U.S. aid to the Nicaraguan rebels.
Sen. David Boren (D-Okla.) predicted there will be some proposals'
to tighten procedures for informing Congress of undercover activities":
He said that while .he would endorse some changes in that respect, "h
think the most important thing is attitude. You have to rebuild trust."'
The senator said he expected relations between Congress and
intelligence community to improve following the resignation of
William Casey as CIA director.
Fraternity members charged
In beer bash, warrants issued
BIG RAPIDS - Warrants were issued against two people in the
traffic death of a Ferris State College student, and seven fraternity.,

negligent homicide warrants have been authorized in the Dec. 13 death,,,
of Ferris student Keith Colangelo 18, of Round Lake, Ill.
Giant bird breaks free,
SAGINAW, Mich. - An Australian bird that stands taller than a
human was on the loose yesterday after escaping from a farm ant,
disappearing into the Saginaw County countryside, its owner said.
Ezzie the emu, a relative of the ostrich standing between 7- and 8-.
feet tall, broke through a wire fence in Swan Creek Township late
Tuesday, said owner Kenneth Kalenak.
"It is afraid of people. It is very skittish," he said.
The emu, which is native to Australia, can run at speeds up to 351,
mph, Kalenak said.
"The bird was last seen 12 miles west of us heading west," he said.
It was one of several exotic birds that Kalenak, an antique auto
upholsterer, raises as a hobby on his farm about eight mile west of
Saginaw," he said.
He said the emu is worth between $500 and $600 and weighs about
100 pounds. Kalenak said he fears the bord might not be able to find
