Bash
More than 500
crowd Diag for
annual event
Continued from Page 1
After the speeches, the easygoing
crowd relaxed and listened to the
many guitar-toting revelers play
:music.
"If they would just legalize all
drugs, it would be fine - everyone
would just be on a high. We're here
for the good of mankind," said Joe

Forcier, an LSA senior who appeared
to be enjoying the Bash.
ADAM Chandler, editor in chief
of Henry Ford Community
College's campus newspaper, was
walking through the Diag searching
for someone to trade him a joint for
three pineapple fruit bars. "I'm really
disappointed," he said of the Bash, "I
think there should be more pot go-
ing around, some music, frisbee
contests, and some crochet or
croquet... whatever."
Police made no arrests and gave
out no citations at Friday's event.
Ann Arbor Sgt. Alan Hartwig said
University public safety officials
asked the department to "stay off the
Diag area proper" during the day.

council campaigns. Both candidates
accused the other of suffering from
election-eve nerves.
"I think he's (DeVarti) having
some problems with his campaign,"
Ouimet said, referring to DeVarti's
last minute response.
On a similar note, DeVarti said of
Ouimet: "I think he's panicking."

BUSINESS

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press reports
Peace emphasized on Easter
VATICAN CITY - Christians worldwide looked beyond global strife
on Easter Sunday, praying for a peaceful end to the world's unrest and
bloodshed.
In his traditional Easter address in Vatican City, Pope John Paul II told
100,000 people in St. Peter's Square and a broadcast audience of millions
to remember people around the world who suffer from injustice and war.
"Pray for peace in the world, for justice, pray for the rights of man, espe-
cially for religious freedom," he said.
In Jerusalem, about 1,000 faithful joined in services at the site where
most Christians believe Jesus rose from the dead.
But church officials said only about half as many people came as last
year to the services at the 12th-century church of the Holy Sepulcher.
Many were deterred by four months of violence in the occupied territories.
India to surpass China's pop.
WASHINGTON - India could surpass China as the world's most
populous nation in the not too distant future, the Census Bureau said.
China has long been the world's most heavily populated nation, cur-
rently containing one in five of the Earth's people.
But, "the time is now forseeable when India will take over the number
one spot, reflecting a population growth rate that is nearly twice as high
as China's," the bureau reported yesterday.
"The latest projections suggest that India's population may surpass
China's in less than 60 years, or before today's youngsters in both coun-
tries reach old age," the bureau said in its new "World Population Profile:
1987."
Although China currently contains 1.1 million people to India's .8
million, India's population is growing at 2.1 percent annually compared
to China's 1.3 percent.
Heroin centered in Lebanon
WASHINGTON - Lebanon, long known as a supplier of hashish,
has become one of the world's big heroin centers in the past few years as
its economy and central government have collapsed, U.S officials said.
"Almost all the militias are involved in some way in the trafficking of
drugs," one intelligence official said.
Lebanon's role in the world's drug trade is discussed in the State De-
partment's March report on narcotics.
"Lebanon is reportedly-the world's major producer of hashish, as well
as a key processing and transit point for heroin," the department'said in
its report called "International Narcotics Control Strategy Report."
The United States has few statistics about Lebanon's drug trade, but it
reportedly is a more than $200 million-a-year business.
Congressional report points
to cutbacks in mental health
WASHINGTON - Federally supported mental health services have
suffered crippling cuts in staff and dollars during the Reagan administra-
tion, and the programs should be restored to pre-1981 levels or higher, a
bipartisan House committee said in a report released yesterday.
The report, issued by the Government Operations Committee, says the
government is spending $73 billion on mental health services that are
fragmented, inappropriate, ineffective or desperately lacking.
The committee also accused the Office of Management and Budget of
dictating a staff cut of 88 percent at one mental health division and said
the budget-writing agency must not be allowed to set staffing levels.

The issue has divided experts on
rent control nationwide as fiercely it

ture.
Members of Citizens for Ann
Arbor's Future have said rent control
would prevent landlords from per-
forming adequate maintenance, lead
to conversions of rental property
into condominiums and privately
owned homes, and cause a shift in
property taxes to homeowners.
But Citizens for Fair Rent -
pointing to rents that have increased
at a rate exceeding inflation in recent
years- argues that strict enforce-
ment of the housing code, and a
provision of their ordinance prevent-
ing landlords from increasing rents
for properties not up to code, will
ensure that rental units are kept in
good condition.
Albert Sukoff, former planner at
the University of California-Berke-
ley, said his experience there has
shown that rental housing falls into
disrepair under rent control.
"Maintenance is where you abso-
lutely have to cut back," Sukoff
said.
BUT Phyllis Salowe-Kaye,
president of the New Jersey Tenant's
Organization, responded that rent
control actually aids property main-
tenance. Salowe-Kaye said the ordi-
nance would encourage proper main-
tenance because it only allows rent
increases for apartments which sat-
isfy city housing code requirements.
Salowe-Kaye added that rent con-
trol proposals have worked well in
New Jersey, where, in 112 out of
115 cases, city councils passed the
ordinance without putting the issue
up to a city-wide vote.
Rent control, she said, has not
caused landlords to convert rental
property to condominiums or single

Nowhere is more information about
world events collected, analyzed, and
managed by more capable people than
at CIA. Nowhere else will you find an
opportunity to become part of such a
dynamic and exceptional team working
for our nation's security.
CIA currently has positions for extra-
ordinary individuals interested in a wide
range of careers, offering a great diver-
sity of opportunity - opportunities in
science and technology, management
and administration, high level analysis of
information, and the special demands of
overseas operations.
Opportunities as Diverse
As Your Talents
The intelligence process is a complex
cycle, moving from the collection of
information to the presentation of
informed analyses to our nation's highest
policymakers. Each of CIA's four director-
ates offers a diversity of challenges:
Directorate of Science and
Technology (DS&T)
Developing and integrating new tech-
nologies, from electro-optics to satellite
communications. Collecting and process-
ing information from around the world.
Using the most advanced equipment and
concepts to provide technical services for
national security.
Directorate of Operations (DO)
The Clandestine Service, the vital
human element of intelligence collection.
Working overseas, recruiting and main-
taining intelligence networks and report-
ing what they find. Courageous individu-
als with high integrity utilizing their
specialized tradecraft to help protect
American interests worldwide.

communications, computer technology,
medicine, security, logistics, and training.
Bringing new challenges to career disci-
plines that may be found elsewhere-but
are not the same anywhere else.
The Professional Profile
Special people with a special mission.
That describes the men and women
entering the CIA's Career Training Pro-
gram. Applicants must be US citizens
with a bachelor's degree or an advanced
degree with a strong GPA. A second lan-
guage, or an ability to learn, is required
for some positions. Related experience
and military service are pluses. Many
applicants must be willing to accept for-
eign assignments.
Applicants must also measure up to a
stringent personal profile requiring
honesty and a highly developed sense of
personal ethics; superior intellectual and
analytical ability, combined with first-rate
communications skills; an unquestionable
loyalty and desire to serve our country.
All applicants must successfully com-
plete a thorough medical and psychiatric
exam, a polygraph interview, and an
extensive background investigation.

Pranksters panic Pittsburgh
PITTSBURGH (AP) - A disc-jockey's on-the-air account of an
unidentified flying object causing commotion in a park was so
convincing that some people claimed they witnessed the mysterious
rumble and flash of light.
"People are seeing it. But it ain't there," said Fred Honesberger, news
director for KDKA-AM, the station that broadcast the April Fool's Day
joke.
"We just had a lady call who said she saw a bunch of gray trucks go in
led by a jeep. These people are claiming to have seen that thing. But we
started it all," Honesberger said, chuckling,
Not everyone was laughing.
Worried listeners flooded the switchboard at the Alleghany County
police station in North Park. Sgt. William Wolverton repeatedly assured
callers there was nothing going on and that the radio report had been a
hoax.
