Ex-Reagan aide gets immunity
WASHINGTON - The Senate panel investigating the Iran-Contra
affair voted yesterday to grant limited immunity to President Reagan's
former national security adviser, Rear Adm. John Poindexter, opening
the way for him to break his silence.
Poindexter, one of the key figures in the affair, resigned as Reagan's
national security adviser last Nov. 25 after Attorney General Edwin
Meese disclosed that profits from secret arms sales to Iran had been
diverted to help the Nicaraguan rebels.
Because Poindexter, in his job, had been seeing Reagan each day, he
has been regarded as the prime witness concerning what the president
may or may not have known of the apparent diversion of the money.
Reagan approves sales to Iran
WASHINGTON - President Reagan's National Security Council
has approved the sale of a $900,000 computer system to Iran, industry
and administration officials said yesterday.
The approval represents the first major U.S. transaction involving
Iran since disclosures in late 1986 that the administration had been.
secretly selling arms to Iran.
Analysts suggested the move underscored a growing sensitivity on
the part of the Reagan administration to problems faced by U.S.
manufacturers of high-technology goods as they seek to compete in
The NSC had been asked to referee a high-level dispute within the
administration over the sale.
Reagan will not lift Japan
trade sanctions, official says
WASHINGTON - A high-level Japanese emissary asked President
Reagan yesterday to lift trade sanctions against Japan, but Reagan's
chief spokesman said action is unlikely before Prime Minister Yasuhiro
Nakasone's visit next week.
Former Japanese Foreign Minister Shintaro Abe said that during .
20-minute meeting with the president, he "mentioned the semiconductor
sanctions issue and emphasized that this measure should be lifted as
quicly as possible."
White House spokesman Marlin Fitzwater, however, said, "It seems
unlikely to us that we will be able to make a change in the sanctions
before the prime minister's visit."

Ciao for now, Daily exclaims
Another term has passed and it's time to shut-down the computers,
hang-up the phones, and wash the ink off our hands as the Daily staff
forsakes its newsroom for smelly carrels in the Grad. Yes, we do study,
though when we show up for our exams some of our professors will be
seeing us for the first time since spring break. In other words, this is
the last issue this term.
Publication will resume weekly beginning Friday, May 8 and daily
again on Thursday, September 10.
We'd like to convey a special "Thanks" to the reader who wrote the
last letter we received this term. He said:
"Dear Daily: You're dumb. Your staff is dumb. And your paper is
dumb. With all my love, Bob."
Thanks, Bob. See you in the funny papers.
