ousts 'old
guard in
I. Germ.
BERLIN (AP) - Communist
Party chief Egon Krenz yesterday
ousted the old guard from the ruling
Politburo and replaced them with re-
formers in a desperate move to quell
widespread unrest and strengthen his
three-week-old leadership.
Thousands of East Germans disil-
usioned by 40 years of Communist
rule and skeptical of promised
reforms continued to flood from their
homeland, with more than 50,000
reaching West Germany since Satur-
day. Pro-reform groups pleaded with
their citizens to stay and help "build
areal democratic society."
Krenz hurled a stinging attack at
his predecessor and long-time politi-
al patron Erich Honecker, and
communist authorities took the first
steps toward registering New forum,
the nation's largest pro-democracy
And in another first, a top
Communist held out the possibility
of free elections, a major demand of
those who have demonstrated for
"Our country is going through a
nse and extremely difficult devel-
opment," Krenz said in a speech to
the Central committee, which unan-
imously approved his proposal to
dissolve the entire 21-member
The Central committee an-
nounced the election of a new 11-
member Politburo and reaffirmed
Krenz, 52, as the party's secretary
eneral. Krenz and six other
W4olitburo members were re-elected.
The committee elevated four new
members to the Politburo, the na-
tion's most powerful decision-mak-
ing body. They included Hans
Modrow, the 61-year-old Dresden
party chief who is said to be a lead-
ing advocate for democratic reform.

Nicaragua puts
forth new plan
for area peace
Ortega wants to demobilize
contras, end arms imports

MANAGUA, Nicaragua (AP) -
Nicaragua put forth a plan yesterday
for demobilizing Contra rebels and
offered to suspend arms imports in
The Soviet Union said earlier this
year it had stopped shipping arms to
Nicaragua, but Paul Wolfowitz, a
U.S. Defense Department
undersecretary, said last week other
Soviet bloc nations and Cuba
continued sending weapons.
President Daniel Ortega told a
news conference his decision last
week to end cease-fire after 19
months has opened the way to peace
between the Sandinistas government
and the U.S.-supported rebels.
He said Nicaragua would forgo
arms imports until April 25, 1990,
if the 15-point plan was accepted.
Yesterday, President Bush
promised to lift the trade embargo
against Nicaragua if the U.S.-backed
presidential candidate, Violeta
Chamorro, defeats Ortega in
elections set for Feb. 25.
His statement came after a
Washington meeting in which Mrs.
Chamorro asked Bush for aid to help

with economic reconstruction after
the election and the two agreed on
the need to muster international
support for fair elections, according
to U.S. and Nicaraguan participants.
In their proposal yesterday, the
Sandinistas urged that the United
States divert to demobilization what
remains of $49 million in non-lethal
aid to the Contras authorized by
Congress in March. The aid
includes such items as boots, tents
and uniforms.
The 12,000 rebels, some in
Nicaragua and most camped in
neighboring Honduras, are to be
disbanded by early December under
the regional peace agreement signed
Aug. 7 by Ortega and the presidents
of Honduras, El Salvador, Costa
Rica, and Guatemala.
"If the Contras don't accept this
plan, they will be voting for war,"
Ortega said in apparent reference to
the cease-fire cancellation and
fighting reported since.
He said he would demand a
meeting of the Central American
presidents to discuss the situation if
the Contras rejected his proposals.

Beauty Tips
"It seems that there are times when us ladies aren't taken too seriously around this university," wrote the
Brazen Hussies about the structure they set up on the diag today. Inside the erected cage were symbols
representing why the group of women are "pissed off."


Popadiuk said the Bush administra-
tion hoped the shakeup "is a step on
the road to stable and evolutionary
All of the aging Politburo
members were closely associated
with Honecker, whom Krenz
replaced Oct. 18. They include
ideology chief Kurt Hager; Erich
Miekle, head of the dreaded security
apparatus; Parliment Speaker Horst
Sinderman; and former Parliment
speaker Willi Stoph.

University Council co-chair opposes
President's advisory committee

by Kristine LaLonde
Administration Reporter
University Council co-chair Corey Dolgan
said he will ask the council to send a letter to
University President James Duderstadt complain-
ing that the President bypassed the council in
seeking input for the interim anti-harassment
Dolgan, a Rackham graduate student, said the
council is the proper body to review the harass-
ment policy.
He added that the President should have noti-
fied the council of his decision to form an advi-
sory committee even if he did not intend to use
the council.
"At least the President could have consulted
the council. No one on the council knew about
this, not even the administrators," Dolgan said.
"At best, it's a faux pas; at worst, it's a blatant
disregard of 7.02."

The University's Board of Regents set up the
council with regental bylaw 7.02 to review pro-
posed conduct policies and set up guidelines to
implement these policies. The council is made
up of three students, three administrators, and
three faculty members.
Duderstadt appointed an advisory committee
- which includes student, staff, and faculty
members - to make suggestions on the harass-
ment policy rather than using the council for the
same purpose.
"I asked the council to consider a letter com-
plaining about the President's process in choos-
ing an advisory committee," Dolgan said. "The
7.02 process is still in existence and should be
followed... I think everyone on the council feels
this process has been bypassed."
Council co-chair Jens Zorn, a physics profes-
sor, was out of town and could not be reached for
comment on the proposed letter.

Shirley Clarkson, assistant to the president,
said Duderstadt did not use the council for fear
that the body would be bogged down with work
and not be able to complete its other duties.
The council is currently facing a December
deadline from the regents to prove its productiv-
ity. The regents assigned the council to the task
of proposing implementation guidelines on the
free speech and protest policy; the future of the
council depends on completion of this task.
"We didn't want to undermine their ability to
meet their charge from the regents," Clarkson
Council member Harry McLaughlin, the
physical education academic services director, said
many of the council members wanted to review
the policy's progression
,McLaughlin said he didn't understand why
Dolgan was surprised that the President chose not
to use the council for formal input into the anti-
harassment policy.
