Casey
turned to
Saudis,
Sbook says
WASHINGTON (AP) - The late
CIA Director William Casey turned
to the Saudi Arabian government for
money and help when it became
clear that his own effort to create a
secret anti-terrorist force was not
going to work, according to excerpts
published yesterday of a forthcoming
book by Bob Woodward.
Woodward also provides details of
what he says was Casey's deathbed
confession of his knowledge of the
diversion of Iran arms profits to the
Nicaraguan Contra rebels.
Casey's impatience with the
CIA's emphasis on intelligence
gathering rather than covert action
reached a peak in 1985, when the
administration was anxious to assert
itself in the Middle East after
terrorists had bombed U.S. facilities
in Beirut, the book says.
"All the bold planning was going
to be a wasted effort," Woodward
wrote. "After four years of
frustration with his agency and
Congress, Casey had reached the
breaking point. He decided to go 'off
the books,' to go outside normal
CIA channels and turn instead to
King Fahd of Saudi Arabia and the
Saudi intelligence service.... "
In the book and in an interview
with CBS-TV's "60 Minutes,"
Woodward described when, after
eluding CIA security, he got to
Casey's hospital room.
"He was dying. It was not the
Casey I knew physically,"
Woodward said. "And so I got one
question, and ... that question was:
'You knew about the diversion,
didn't you?' ... And he nodded....
And I said 'Why?' And he said, 'I
believed."'
Calls to the Saudi Embassy in
Washington seeking comment on
the report were not immediately
returned yesterday.

celebra-te successful summer

Think mud. Think lots of mud.
The estimated 200 people attending
this year's mudbowl party outside the
Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity Fri-
day afternoon had mud on their minds
as they basked in the sun and enjoyed
the live music of local bands.
The bash marked the kickoff cel-
ebration of the annual mudbowl
game played Homecoming weekend
between SAE and Phi Delta Theta
fraternities. The game, which will be
played on October 31st, preceeds the
Michigan-Northwestern game.
This year's party is the second
consecutive bash held in the after-
noon as local police officers have
tried to cut down the amount of safe-
ty risks and high noise levels late at
night.
According to Captain Paul Bunten
of the Ann Arbor police force, there
were no specialized patrols assigned
to the fraternity during the hours of
the party. The police were satisfied
that the problem in earlier years of
blocked traffic during the party had
been eliminated.
Bunten stated that this year the
party was "pretty confined" making it
"much better than in the past." He
also stated that to his knowledge
there were no individual problems
with the party Friday.
As there were no visible uni-
formed police, the security was pro-
vided by members of the fraternity,
themselves.
In past years when the mudbowl
party was held outside at night, an
estimated 4,000 people crowded
around the house and the live bands.
With crowds spilling into Washte-
naw and South University streets late
at night, police concern about safety
mounted, said SAE social chair and
LSA junior Mike Hennessey.
This year, in addition to holding
the, party during the day, the police
also required a temporary fence
around the mudbowl field to keep the
streets clear.
Also, the band was positioned in
the corner of the lawn closest to Vil-

lage Corner playing towards the fra-
ternity house. This was in effort to
reduce the noise levels form previous
parties when the band played in front
of the house.
The bands that played were the
Avante Gardners and The Difference.
According to SAE Vice-President,
Wayne Christansen, an LSA senior,
the fraternity has been "trying to
work with the police to make sure
the (mudbowl) tradition continues as
one of the largest and safest parties
on campus."
Party goer Heather Huthwaite, an
LSA junior, said, "This year's party
really can't be compared with the
party of two years ago. Since it's
during the day, it is a smaller and
mellower crowd."
Engineering junior Peter Oster-
haven even added that the party felt
like "a bunch of Greek people hang-
ing out and not really having a good
time."
Another change this year was the
absence of Miller Light as the spon-
sor of the mudbowl and the mudbowl
party. High insurance rates make it
hard for alcohol companies to spon-
sor college activities, said Hen-
nessey.
This year the party was sponsored
by various local businesses including
All My Muffins, Bicycle Jim's, Big
Market, Subway, Sulley's, and Vil-
lage Corner. Contributions went to-
wards the cost of the bands with the
remaining proceeds donated to the
American Lung Association.
Although this year's mudbowl
party pales in terms of size compared
to parties of the past, it seems o
have gained a new and equally enjoy-
able atmosphere.
"I expected it to be a lot bigger
but I like it because it's comfortable
not having to fight off the crowds
and wait in long lines," said LSA
sophomore Jenny Lindsay.
The midbowl game has been a
tradition since 1910 when it origi-
nated with a touch football game be-
tween SAE and Phi Delta Theta on a
field drenched from rain the night be-
fore.

Thirty-nine students gathered yes-
terday on the fourth floor of the
Rackham Building for a symposium
to celebrate the success of their sum-
mer research projects.
The students spent July and Au-
gust doing research in a one-to-one
basis with a professor. The Com-
mittee on Institutional Cooperation
sponsored the Summer Research Op-
portunity Program (SROP) through
the Horace Rackham School of

HE LIST
What's happening in Ann Arbor today

Graduate Studies. SROP was design-
ed to encourage undergraduate minor-
ity students to consider academic
careers.
Yesterday's symposium gave par-
ticipants the chance to share the re-
sults of their work which ranged
from projects in creative writing to a
study of the development of the ner-
vous system of an embryotic chick.
SROP has doubled in size since
last year's inaugural summer and the
University's program now has the
largest enrollment in the Big Ten.
Associate Dean of Graduate Stud-
ies James Jackson said the program
broke down barriers between students
and faculty at large universities. He
added that it was important to note
that the success of the participants
"is not unusual for minorities."
Homer Rose, associate dean of
graduate studies, said the program is
valuable because scholars expect
many professors to retire in 10 years,
a phenomenon referred to as the
"graying of the faculty" which will
create many new academic positions.
The next group of professors and
researchers could affect the course of
higher education for the next 50
years, added Coordinator of Graduate
Minority Affairs Marilyn Gordon.
Rose said, "(Minorities) are
underrepresented in the faculty ranks
and now is the time to attract them."
Students do not receive credit for
their work but are given two month-

ly stipends totalling $2,000.
LSA senior Derek Green, a second
year participant in the program
sharpened his creative writing skills
under English Prof. John Aldridge
this summer. After finishing as a fi-
nalist in the Hopwood awards twice,
Green won the contest last year for
fiction.
He attributes much of that success
to having more time to write saying,
"I didn't have to work a regular job.
Writing for eight months (the past
two summers) gave me continuity
and a running start."
LSA senior Richard Lopez said, "I
really felt support in a group with
other people like me; it was a com-
mon experience. Sometimes you feel
different than other white stream
Americans."
Chemistry Prof. Edgar Westrum,
a mentor of the program said,
"Everyone benefits from it; the un-
dergraduates are given insights, and
an appreciation for the research world
that they can gain no other way. The
students are a breath of real life for
research professors."
Gordon said, "Its unbelievable
what the undergraduates can do when
you give them the ball and let them
run with it."
