Former 'U' Regent dies at 84
BY MARK MOSHER
A former University Regent who
led the fight to ensure the Univer-
sity's legal autonomy from the State
Legislature died last Saturday at 84.
William Byrnes Cudlip served on
the University's Board of Regents
for one term between 1964 and
1972, and on Rackham Graduate
,School's Board of Governors for 12
Cudlip died of complications
Born and raised in Iron Mountain,
Mich., Cudlip did his undergraduate
work at Swarthmore College, earned
an L.L.B. from the University's law
school in 1926, and held a partner-
ship in the Detroit law firm of
Dickinson, McKean, Cudlip, and
Moon until he retired in 1976.
A former director of the Ameri-
can Judicature society, Cudlip was
active in the constitutional politics
of Michigan - especially when they
affected the University.
When the Michigan constitution
was rewritten in 1963, Cudlip went
to the convention as delegate,
"primarily to secure the right of re-
gents'and trustees to control the 'Big
Three' Michigan colleges," said for-
mer University President Robben
Cudlip also wrote The University
of Michigan: Its Legal Profile, a
historical study of the University's
legal rights vis-a-vis the state gov-
ernment published in 1969.
He is survived by Lynwood Cud-
lip, his wife of 59 years, two
daughters, three sons, two sisters,
and twelve grandchildren.-
A mass will be held in his mem-
ory at 10 a.m. this Saturday in Holy
Childhood Church, Harbor Springs.

Estonian parliament to vote
on declaration of sovereignty
TALLINN, U.S.S.R. - Estonia's parliament today will consider a
"declaration of sovereignty" that proclaims the Baltic republic's
independence from the Soviet Union in all areas except defense and
Its members also will weigh a related amendment to the Estonian
constitutions that would bar enforcement of any new Soviet law unless it
has been ratified by the Estonian parliament, said Edgar Savisaar, one of
the leaders of the Estonian People's Front, the broad-based citizen's group
behind the proposal.
Although the People's Front claims the support of the leadership of
the Estonian government and the Estonian Communist Party, passage of
the proposals is by no means assured. They require a two-thirds majority
in the 285-member Supreme Soviet, or parliament, of Estonia.
U.S., U.S.S.R. plan summit
WASHINGTON - President Reagan set limited goals yesterday for
his meeting early next month in New York with Soviet President
Mikhail Gorbachev, saying it would not be in the nature of a summit.
The meeting, to be held in conjunction with a speech by Gorbachev to
the U.N. General Assembly, would ease the transition to President-elect
George Bush's assumption of office January 20.
Bush, who is already committed to pursuing a summit with Gorbachev
next year, will participate in the session and not see the Soviet leader
separately, White House spokesperson Marlin Fitzwater said. He said the
agenda has not been set. The target date for the meeting is December 7.
Several major issues in the U.S.-Soviet relationship are on the brink
Riegle's position in doubt
WASHINGTON - A power struggle within the Senate leadership
may endanger Sen. Donald Riegle's chances of assuming control of a
powerful committee, authorities said yesterday.
The chair of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs
Committee became vacant at the end of. this year's session with the
retirement of Sen. William Proxmire of Wisconsin.
Whether Riegle, a Michigan Democrat, gets the job hinges on the
complexities of the Senate's seniority system and a challenge to Sen.
Alan Cranston, a California Democrat, in his bid to win re-election as
Senate majority whip.
Committee leadership in Congress almost always is determined by
seniority, and Riegle, a Michigan Democrat, stands second in line for the
Banking Committee chair.
Cranston is next in line, but would waive his right to the position if
re-elected as whip, a position second only to the Senate majority leader.
Sen. Wendell Ford of Kentucky is challenging Cranston for the whip's
Bush picks new treasury sec.
WASHINGTON - President-elect George Bush, back from a relaxing
Florida vacation, announced yesterday that Treasury Secretary Nicholas
Brady would remain in that job and met with his first foreign leader in his
Brady, a former investment banker and Bush's longtime friend, is the
second person chosen for the new Cabinet, Bush last week picked James
Baker, his election campaign chairperson, as secretary of state.
A former senator from New Jersey, Brady succeeded Baker at Treasury
in August, and it had been widely rumored he would stay in the post.
Announcing his choice, Bush said of Brady: "He knows the most
important priority is to keep our economy growing with low inflation.
He knows we've got to sit down with the Congress on a deficit-reduction
agreement and we've got to do it soon."
What's next? Alaskan
whale rescue set to music
JUNEAU, Alaska - With the international attention drawn to the
recent rescue of two trapped whales near Barrow, perhaps it was inevitable
that someone would put the saga to music.
Paul Candide, a New York composer, recently sent Alaska Gov. Steve
Cowper a tape recording of his song, "Gentle Creatures," with a letter
asking Cowper to share it with those who helped free the California gray
whales from the Arctic ice last month. A sampling of the lyrics:
"Have you heard of the tale of the whales who got stuck
They were swimin alone when they got down on their luck
underneath the deep blue sea...
Eskimos brought saws to open the sea
as they joined in to set them free
And the Russians brought icebreakers through the sea
as they joined in to save those three."
