number of areas, but much more
needs to be done," the statement said.
Asked yesterday if a treaty would
be completed, Reagan said, "I have
no way of answering that." and added
that the two nations were committed
to the cutback.
Shevardnadze , asked if a treaty
would be ready, said through a
translator: "It is possible. This is not
an easy task. This is a very com-
plicated task, but we are becoming
convinced that it is doable.
"There are many different ques-
tions of a technical nature, mostly in
verification, but in principle this can
be done," the foreign minister said as
he left the White House following
two hours of talks and lunch with
The summit announcement capped
three days of meetings between Shev-
ardnadze and Schultz. After a morn-
ing round of talks at the State
Department, Shevardnadze went to
the White House.
Within minutes of his arrival,
Shevardnadze and Reagan stepped
from the Oval Office to the sun-
splashed Rose Garden to disclose the
long-awaited summit dates.
"We have set the date and now we
shall take care of good substance,
good content for the summit," Shev-
White House spokesperson Marlin
Fitzwater said the president would
spend all his time in the Soviet
capital, following the pattern set by
Gorbachev when he remained in
Washington during his December
summit with Reagan. But Nancy
Reagan, the president's wife, is
planning a day trip to Leningrad.
White House planners are
exploring the possibility of setting
up meetings with Soviet dissidents
and refuseniks, as well as arranging a
presidential trip to a performance by
the Bolshoi ballet.
Asked what the summit would
acheive if an arms agreement is not
sealed, Reagan said, "There are a
number of other subjects that we
continue to discuss with each other."
Reagan, who began his political
career as an ardent anti-communist,
came into office in 1981 saying
Kremlin leaders did not hesitate to
cheat or lie to acheive their goals.

Israelis hold raids to quell riots
JERUSALEM - The army made overnight raids throughout the
occupied lands yesterday, arresting hundreds of Palestinians in its latest
strategy for ending a rebellion in which more than 100 Arabs and an
Israeli soldier have been killed.
Israeli warplanes flew their second raid in six days against guerilla
targets in south Lebanon.
Arab reports said about 500 Palestinians were rounded up in the sweep.
Defense minister Yitzhak Rabin said 3,000 have been detained since riots
began Dec. 8 in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Soldiers shot and wounded an Arab protester in Gaza's Jabaliva refugee
camp, officials at Shifa hospital reported. They also said a Palestinian
from the Deir al Balah camp had serious head injuries from a beating.
Economy expands, prices fall
WASHINGTON - The government delivered two welcome pieces of
economic news yesterday: consumer prices rose just 0.2 percent in
February and the economy in late 1987 expanded at the liveliest pace in
nearly two years.
Falling energy and food prices in February helped restrain the rise in
the Labor Department's Consumer Price Index after a 0.3 percent increase
For the first two months of the year, prices increased at an annual rate
of 3.2 percent much better than last year's moderate 4.4 percent inflation.
In a separate report, the Commerce Department said the U.S. economy
grew at a brisk 4.8 percent annual pace in the final three months of last
year. It was the second upward revision in the fourth-quarter GNP,
estimated a month ago at 4.5 percent and in January at 4.2 percent.
Ex-CIA official denies drug
dealings in Iran-Contra affair
WASHINGTON - A nearly 2-year-old lawsuit that accuses several
Iran-Contra figures of collaborating with Columbian drug lords is under
attack by the defendants who call the complaint "legal terrorism."
The lawsuit, filed in May 1986 several months before the Iran-Contra
affair was disclosed publicly, names some of the people in the private
network that Lt. Col. Oliver North formed to help the Nicaraguan
At the heart of the lawsuit is the allegation that "a secret team" headed
by former CIA official Theodore Shackley worked over two decades to
manage a covert, shadow government funded with drug profits.
In an article in the Journal of Defense and Diplomacy, Shackley
described the plaintiffs as "practitioners of character assassination through

PANAMA CITY, Panama - A U.S. diplomat was given 48 hours to
leave Panama yesterday, the third day of a general strike that has virtually
shut down the country but not loosened Gen. Manuel Antonio Noriega's
grip on power.
David Miller, an economics counselor, was the second American
diplomat ordered out by the Foreign Ministry, which gave no reason for
In Washington, the State Department said yesterday night it would
ignore the order because the United States considers the government that
issued it illegitimate. It gave the same reason for rejecting the previous
order against Terence Kneebone, head of the U.S. Information Service in
Panama, who remains in the country.
Everybody loves a circus
NEW YORK - The police van's megaphone issued issued a strange
warning to the crowd of over 100 people hovering around the Manhattan
exit from the Queens Midtown Tunnel early Wednesday.
"Do yourself a favor and don't touch the cages."
Up from under the river came Ringling Bros. and Barnum Bailey
Circus' annual three-mile parade of animals as the big top moved into
Madison Square Garden for a six-week run.
The caged lions and tigers came first. Fourteen of them in two stands
of cages linked together and pulled by trucks.
"Living things in Manhattan that are not people, and are not
cockroaches!" yelled Amy Slaton, a 30-year-old art critic.
After the tigers came elephants, 15 horses, five zebras, and six camels.
Inevitably, the rear was brought up by a Department of Sanitation street

Kate Gordon, an RC sophomore
who has helped plan the forum, said
the class has dispelled some of the
misconceptions connected with the
AIDS issue, like the myth that peo-.
ple can contract the disease through
"People need to know what's real
and what's not real. The real articles
on AIDS are very scientific and are
difficult to read. The articles that are
easy to read are based on conjecture
and perpetuate a lot of unreasonable
fears," Gordon said.
Many distinguished leaders of the
University community, as well as
health specialists, are participating
in the forum.
