Until the two positions are filled,
the four remaining UAC vice-
presidents will work together to see
that all scheduled activities go off on

He said that it is normal for an
organization of UAC's size to have
several resignations every year.
However, this is the first time that
the President has resigned, he said.

Reagan: missile agreement unlikely
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Reagan said yesterday the superpowers still
face "difficult issues" before reaching'an arms
agreement, and the White House cautioned it
was unlikely a missile accord or summit date
would result from talks with Soviet Foreign
Minister Eduard Shevardnadze this week.
On the eve of Shevardnadze's visit to the
White House, Reagan instructed U. S.
negotiators to present a new draft treaty on
intermediate range forces, known as INF. It
calls for elimination of all medium-range
nuclear missiles, with a range of about 600 to
3,000 miles, within three years, and
abolishing shorter-range misssiles, with a
range of about 300 to 600 miles, within one
The Soviets have proposed a timetable of
five years for dismantling medium-range
weapons and one year for shorter-range
"WITH these new actions taken by the
United States, it is now up to the Soviet
Union to demonstrate whether or not it truely
wants to conclude a treaty eliminating this
class of missiles, " Reagan said in a speech to
the National Alliance of Business.
' He said the proposed treaty contained the
toughest-ever measures against cheating - a
fact the administration cited in minimizing
chances for an imminent announcement on a
missile accord or superpower summit.
Reagan's speech and the new treaty draft set
the stage for three days of meetings between
Shevardnadze and Secretary of State George
Shultz that could be crucial to the fate of the
SHULTZ and Shevardnadze will begin
with three hours of talks at the State
Department today and then go to the White
House. There they will sign a previously
negotiated agreement to set up "nuclear risk
reduction centers" in Moscow and Washington
to lower the chance of accidental war.
Accompanied by Shultz, Reagan will
confer with Shevarnadze in the Cabinet Room
and then meet with him over lunch.
Shevardnadze and Shultz then will go back
to the State Department for more talks, and
confer again tomorrow and Thursday. The
discussions may be extended to the next week
when both attend the special U.N. General
Assembly session in New York.
In a statement announcing the treaty draft,
Reagan said the superpowers "have come a
long way" toward an agreement and that a
"historic agreement is now within reach."
"DIFFICULT issues remain to be
resolved, including verefication," the president
said. He said the Soviets have agreed in
principle to a number or verification
requirements, "but have yet to provide some

have provided have not met the test of

The Stanley H. Kaplan Educa-
tional Center Ltd. plans to add a bar
exam review to its long list of
"All law students take some kind
of preparation for the bar exam...
Classroom teaching, particularly at a
school such as the (University), is
not directed toward performance on
the bar," said Kathryn Amrhein, the
manager of the Ann Arbor Stanley
Kaplan Center, whose company is
hoping to get a hold on this test
Locally, the Kaplan Center will
face competition however, in its ef-
forts to attract students. Any
preparatory course is a large invest-
ment - classes range from $600 to
$800 - and students may want to
stay with familiar review courses.

son-Kluwer Center in Southfield.
For eight years the center has
monopolized the market as the only
program offering preparation for the
Michigan bar. For students planning
to practice out of state, the Bar-bri
course has been the most popular.
"I probably would take Bar-bri
rather than risk something new,"
said Loretta Salzano, a third year law
student. Bar-bri also plans to offer a
Michigan course this year.

"Destroy someone's reputation
and you don't have to talk about
what he stands for," Reagan said.
"Well, I hope Judge Bork's critics
will be candid about why they op-

for attacking him personally. That
way, we can have a full and open
debate on an i m p o r t a n t

The principle that Reagan was
referring to was Bork's belief that
"laws should goverp our country,
and if you want them changed, you
should convince the elected leg-

not conceal his real views.

of the ACLU. Recent interviews
only "show how he's trying to
backtrack," he said.
