Military expert
favors build-down

Military relations between the
United States and the Soviet Union
may be improving, and a dialogue
between the nations over nuclear
arms seems hopeful, said a U.S.
military expert. yesterday at the Uni-
Jonathan Dean, a career foreign
service officer and former U.S. am-
bassador to the Mutual Balanced
Force Reduction talks in Vienna,
gave the.keynote address for the sec-
ond annual Undergraduate Conference
of Political Affairs titled "Arms
control: American and Soviet Per-
spectives," held at Rackham Am-
"It's a daring assessment I make,
- but prospects to limit the strength
and number of weapons are generally
favorable," said Dean regarding the
Bush administration.
To initiate a positive change in
military relations, Dean said the su-
perpowers must agree to limit the
number of mobile interballistic
missiles and sea-launched cruise
missiles, and determine the locations
of missile base testing areas.
The superpowers must reconsider
their competing interests in the
Third World before U.S.-Soviet
relations will improve, .Dean said.
He said the implementation of mili-

tary constraints is the key to a more
secure global system.
"Efforts to build-down the East-
West confrontation are more con-
structive than building up for a pos-.
sible attack," Dean said. A reduction
in arms, the diplomat said, would
offer a military program of less risk
and less cost to the Soviets and the
..Currently, a National Arms
Treaty Organization (NATO) pro-
posal suggests a 5 to 10 percent re-
duction in nuclear forces. Dean con-
siders the program too modest, and
instead advocates a 20 percent cut-
back in military spending, which
could save the U.S. between 5 and 7
billion dollars a year, he said.
For the future, Dean advocates a
50 percent reduction in the United
States' armaments and personnel in
Europe. He said such action would
cut the U.S. military budget by 30
percent, a savings of nearly $150
billion a year.
Dean said the U.S. may not agree
to reduce the number of combat air-
craft in Europe because the Soviets
currently have a 2 to 1 advantage in
military power in this strategic area
Nonetheless, Dean said the U.S.
needs to work out a program to re-
duce combat aircraft.

U.S. tells PLO to take "practical
steps" to solve territory disputes
TUNIS, Tunisia - U.S. diplomats told the PLO in a 4-1/2 hour
meeting yesterday to take "practical steps" to ease tension in the Israeli-
occupied territories, the head of the U.S. delegation said.
U.S. Ambassador Robert H. Pelletreau, who headed the three-person
American team, said after the meeting that there was a "new dynamic" in
the Middle East "of which this dialogue is part."
Pelletreau said U.S. concerns about terrorism were discussed as well as
"practical steps that can be taken in the occupied territories to reduce ten-
Yasser Abed-Rabbo, representing the PLO side, said progress was
made, but he emphasized that the only road to peace is an international
conference involving the five U.N. Security Council members and all
parties involved, including the PLO.
The Israelis strongly oppose Washington's discussions with the PLO,
which Israel considers a terrorist organization.
Soviet elections spark rallies
MOSCOW - Supporters of Boris Yeltsin, the former Communist
Party boss of Moscow, rallied yesterday against a privileged bureaucracy
and vowed to turn in their party cards if they see any cheating in the leg-
islative election.
Yeltsin and his supporters accuse party officials of waging a campaign
to discredit him that included the formation of a commission to review
whether his views disagree with party policies.
At the same time, a rally against old guard candidates gave new life to
the candidacy of human rights activist Andrei Sakharov and forced mem-
bers of the Academy of Sciences to consider a new election.
Sakharov was previously eliminated from the campaign for criticizing
an election process.
Authorities did not grant permission for the demonstrations in the final
days of campaigning before Sunday's election of a new legislature, but
the police did not try to stop it.
Thin Blue Line suspect goes home
HOUSTON - Former death row inmate Randall Adams said yesterday
that he wants to go home to Ohio and never return to Texas, the state that
imprisoned him for 12 years for a crime he says he didn't commit.
.However, Adams, who was released from a Dallas prison on Tuesday,
said he isn't bitter about the past and believes a new trial on charges of
killing a police officer would further clear his name.
Adams, who had no previous arrests, was convicted in 1977 of killing
police officer Rovert Wood and was sentenced to death. He once came
within three days of his execution date and the sentence was commuted to
life in prison in.1980.
The conviction was dismissed earlier this month, following revelations
in a movie documentary about his case, Thin Blue Line.
Despite being imprisoned and facing the death penalty, Adams said the
Texas judicial system "in my case worked, Texas did not execute me."
Gingrich elected as Republican whip
WASHINGTON - House Republicans elected right-wing activist
Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) to their no. 2 leadership post yesterday and charted
a course for battle with the ruling Democrats.
Gingrich, who filed the complaint that led to the House ethics com-
mittee investigation of House Speaker Jim Wright, declared he would
"build a more aggressive party."
"I'm going to be the happiest when two Republicans are debating an
issue on TV and there's no room for a Democrat," he said.
The vote for Gingrich was widely taken as a rebuke of the low-key
style of the current Republican leadership, and as reflecting a desire in the
House GOP to concentrate on attacking the Democrats instead of working
with them.

Scandinavian women were
barred from state academies in the
early 1800s and forced to find
alternative means of education
and support. Many opened their
own schools, and others
developed artistic interests. By
1900, there were close to 50
Scandinavian women artists in
Paris alone.

Colombian cartel

Leaders of Colombia's Medellin
Cartel were indicted yesterday on
charges of cocaine trafficking and
masterminding the slayings of the
Colombian justice minister and U.S..
drug informant.
The sweeping indictment alleges
that both Nicaragua and the Bahamas
were used as way stations for $1
billion in drug imports to the United
States. Among those charged is a
close associate of Bahamian Prime
Minister Lynden Pindling.
The case "once again shows that
the United States is not going to let
up our efforts to catch these individ-
uals who are supplying drugs to the
United States," U.S. Attorney
Robert Genzman said. "We feel that
the pressure has got to be kept on
regardless of how many indictments
come out in the United States
against members of the cartel."
In all, 30 people were charged in
the "second wave" of indictments re-
sulting from last May's conviction
of Carlos Rivas, one of the leaders
of the cartel, who officials say is re-
sponsible for up to 80 percent of the
cocaine imported into the United

Rodriguez Gacha, Jorge Vasquez and
Gonzalo Mejia.
None of the cartel members has
been taken into custody, although
most have already been indicted in
Miami. They are believed to be in
Colombia, officials said.
Genzman noted that it took the
government six years to get Lehder
to the United States. "I am confident
that at some point in time we will
be able to obtain custody of the oth-
ers," he said.
Also indicted was Jack Carlton
Reed, who was Lehder's co-defendant
at last year's trial. Lehder and Reed
were convicted here last May 19 of
conspiring to import cocaine.
"The indictment traces Lender's
development into a primary overseas
transporter of cocaine for other
Medellin Cartel members, and his
continued association with these
members after they developed their
own transportation operations,"
Genzman said.
The indictment accuses Escobar,
Rodriguez, Mejia, Reed and the two
Ochoas of running a continuing
criminal enterprise punishable by a
maximum life sentence and conspir-
acy to import drugs.
The indictment alleges that after
