Perestroika, as proposed b
Mikhail Gorbachev, will lay th
groundwork for the return of capital
ism - and all the problems wit
that system - to the Soviet Union.
This was the kernel of a lectur
given last night by David North, Na
tional Secretary of the Worker
League/Young Socialists, to 3
people in Mason Hall.
North began by condemning th
Western press for what he calle

contrast, North described the Unite
States as plagued by declining indus

North acknowledged that the So
viet Union has had a long history o
bloody political conflict. After th
Russian Revolution in 1917, a bu
reaucracy arose to distribute th
goods produced in factories an
farms, all of which had been seize
by the state. Shortages led t
unequal distribution, which indtur
gave birth to a caste of bureaucrat

"The bureaucrats never forgo
their power and privilege," he said.
If private property is institute
under perestroika, as has been dis
cussed in the Supreme Soviet, th
bureaucracy will become a rulin
class, North said, since bureaucrat
will have the only opportunities t
own that property.
The only hope for the implemen
tation of a fair socialist society i
the USSR, North said, will be if th
workers there resist reversion to cap
italism. He cited recent labor unres
there as evidence of Soviet worker
already disaffected with perestroika.

East Germans to see reform
BERLIN - New leader Egon Krenz said yesterday he will let East
Germans travel abroad more freely but made clear that the Berlin Wall, a
scar on the city for nearly three decades, will not come down.
Other signs of reform included a statement by a ruling Politburo rep-
Y resentative that he would meet today with a member of the New Forum,
- which is the main opposition group and is officially banned. The party
h previously rejected talks with the opposition.
Krenz said yesterday "no one will be left out of the dialogue," indicat-
ing the new regime's willingness to discuss reforms might extend to
- members of other pro-democracy groups.
o Polish police try to regain prestige
ntWARSAW, Poland - The secret police will disband undercover
d units and turn off listening devices to try to win back "public acceptance
e and prestige," commanders said yesterday.
The despised secret police, long symbolizing communist control by
fear, are remembered as executors of Stalinist purges, clandestine monitors
e of the opposition and interrogators of activists.
a The "Third Department" (which spied on religious associations and
whose officers were convicted of murdering a Solidarity priest) and five
t other units including those responsible for surveillance of citizens' loyalty
s have been liquidated in the reform drive.
Also dissolved are "archaic" units that inspected foreign radio
Y transmissions and the political education unit.
d The department will be limited to about 7,500 posts with some of the
secret police being transferred to help combat rising crime in Poland.
, Court decision raises 'serious
f question' about presidency
- WASHINGTON - The Justice Department said yesterday that a court
f decision allowing former President Reagan's papers to be subpoenaed for
e an Iran-Contra trial "raised a serious question" about the institution of the
e Comments by chief spokesperson David Runkel suggest that top
d officials are considering supporting Reagan in any subpoenas for notes
d and diaries for use as evidence by former National Security Advisor John
Poindexter contends that Reagan's diaries and notes taken during their
s frequent meetings will show that the former president authorized many of
s his actions in the Iran-Contra affair.
t Famine threatens Ethiopia
d ADIERADOM, Ethiopia - Ethiopia's northernmost province is
- dotted with patches of scorched crops and relief workers say the crop
e failure could threaten nearly 1.7 million people with famine next year.
g "The situation is as bad as it was in 1984-85 (when famine killed as
S many as 1 million people)," said David Morton, director of the U.N.
o World Food Program.
To stave off famine deaths, the agency has appealed to internation
- donors for emergency food.
n Drought strikes Ethiopia with a tragic regularity and combines with
e unproductive agricultural policies and a population growth of 2.9 percent
- to outstrip food production. Ethiopia will suffer a yearly food deficit of
t about 3 million tons for the forseeable future.
Ann Arbor is a better place
to be; Daily has reasons why
Ann Arbor rates as the nation's 75th most livable place, according to
the Places Rated Almanac.
The Almanac, which should be in bookstores next month, rated
Seattle as the most desirable place to live.
Seattle moved to number one from a number 12 rating in 1985, the
Almanac's most recent ranking. The reason for Seattle's big climb was,
no doubt, the Kingdome's hosting of Michigan's 1989 men's basketbal
Ann Arbor was rated 101st in 1985.
The Almanac did not specify any reasons of why Ann Arbor made the
26-place jump, but we can speculate. So here they are - from the home
office at the Student Publications Building, the top 10 reasons why Ann
Arbor moved from the 101st most livable city in 1985 to the 75th:
10. Tubby's temporarily closed.
9. Bill Frieder gone.
8. No more Christmas lights at Domino's Farms.
7. New Chem Building
6. Upstairs of Charley's closed.
5. Dooley's still open.
4. New awning at China Gate.
3. Paul Jensen never elected mayor.
2. New skywalk between Randall Lab and W. Engineering buildings.
