Nebraska Book Co., owner of
two campus bookstores, announced
yesterday that by next fall's book
rush, they will move- Michigan

building at State and North Univer-
Mark Opplegard, the vice presi-
dent of retail for Nebraska Books,
said his company decided to lease the
Kresge Building because- "we just
like the location better... price didn't
come into play."
The price of the lease was un-
available yesterday.
The lease for the current Michi-
gan Book and Supply location, in
the old University Cellar Building
on Liberty Street, has three and a
half years left. The store, which sells
primarily textbooks, will join sev-
eral bookstores already on State St.
including Shaman Drum and Bor-
Opplegard said his company has
been negotiating for the lease to the
Kresge building for the last half year
even though it had only been at
Liberty St. for one year. Opplegard
said the company, which also owns
Ulrich's, has no current plans for the
former University Cellar building.
Michigan Book and Supply's
acting General Manager Fred Ullrich
explained that the transfer will not
take place until next summer, so
that renovations can be made to the
Kresge Building. He said the store
will continue to operate at its pre-
sent location until the new store is
open for business.
Ullrich described the motivation
behind the move as "a need to be
closer to the heart of campus" since
"students are a big part of our cus-
The store will occupy all of the

basement and the first and second

lease the second floor, but their
leases will expire at the end of this
year. All have found new locations.

MOSCOW (AP) - Soviet au-
thorities rushed military surgeons
and tons of medical supplies yester-

rocked by an earthquake that officials

Armenian journalists said a
Politburo commission led by Pre-
mier Nikolai Ryzhkov received pre-
liminary estimates that up to 50,000
people died in the Wednesday earth-
quake, which measured 6.9 on the
Richter scale. Soviet officials re-
ported thousands of people were
killed, but provided no death toll.
Soviet President Mikhail Gor-
bachev cut short his trip to the
United States and flew home to lead
a worldwide emergency rescue effort
in southern republic.
"Urgent measures are being taken
to help all those affected by this ter-
rible tragedy, and I have to be there
in this effort," said Gorbachev, who
planned to fly to Yerevan, the Ar-
menian capital, after arriving in
President Reagan offered emer-

President Fidel Castro pledged to
send construction workers, and
Britain dispatched London firefight-
ers to join the rescue effort.
The Armenian Students Cultural
Association will be collecting dona-
tions in the Fishbowl today from 9
a.m. until 5 p.m. and will have up-
dated information about the, earth-

quake. The association president,
LSA senior Richard Najarian, said
the financial support of the Univer-
sity community is strongly needed.
"There are 150 Armenian students
here," Najarian said. "We make up a
small percent of the University, but
nevertheless are a part of the
Najarian said that previously his
group had not sent funds to Armenia
for fear that they would not be used
properly, but he is sure that Gor-
bachev will get the relief aid to the
appropriate places.
The earthquake destroyed two-
thirds of Leninakan, Armenia's sec-
ond-largest city with a population of
250,000 people.
The Tass News Agency reported
that Soviet authorities dispatched
doctors, engineers, food and medical
supplies to the areas.
The newspaper Komsomolskaya
Pravda said soldiers were working
under spotlights in the wreckage of a
Leninakan school where two
sergeants-pulled the bodies of more
than 50 children from the ruins.

GAZA CITY (AP) - Israeli soldiers killed a teen-
ager by shooting him in the heart, and 1.5 million
Palestinians held a general strike in the occupied lands
yesterday, the first anniversary of their uprising.
The death of Yussef Mohammed Sbaith, raised the
number of Palestinians.killed to at least 320 since the
rebellion began Dec. 8, 1987, in the West Bank and
Gaza Striop. More than 7,000 Palestinians have been
wounded and 11 Israelis also have been slain.
An army spokesperson said Sbaith was shot in the
heart when troops were stoned during a sweep in the
West Bank village of Kafr Rai.
Soldiers also wounded a 22-year-old woman in the
leg after meeting "violent resistance" from stone-
throwing youths in Kafr Rai, said the spokesperson,
whose name cannot be revealed under army rules.
Hospital officials said a 23-year-old man suffered
head injuries from a beating by troopers.
Army gunfire wounded six other Palestinians in
Nablus, the West Bank's largest city, and in Gaza
City, Arab doctors said. One of those wounded in

Nablus was a 14-year-old boy shot in the stomach,
they said.
Arab witnesses said two of the wounded were hit by
bullets fired from the window of a house the army used
as a lookout post in the open-air Nablus market, the
center of many clashes between soldiers and Arab
Palestinians closed businesses and halted public
transportation throughout the occupied territor-ies.
The underground leadershiop, which the Palestine
Liberation Or-ganization supports, called the strike for
the aniversary of the revolt in the West Bank and Gaza,
which Israel catpured from Jordan and Egypt in the
1967 Middle East war.
Israeli military authorities put all eight Gaza Strip
refugee camps under curfew, confining more than
250,000 Palestinians to their homes.
Throughout the coastal strip, Palestinians erected
roadblocks and burned tires in sporadic acts of defiance.
About 20 Paelestinian youths were seen lobbing rocks
from a barricaded alley in Gaza City.
