Russia will cut
nuclear funding*

MOSCOW (AP) - Boris
Yeltsin unveiled an ambitious plan
to cut nuclear weapons spending
yesterday and urged the United
States and other nuclear powers to
"move much farther along the
road" to disarmament.
And in a dramatic shift away
from more than 40 years of Cold
War hostility, the Russian president
said his republic's nuclear warheads
would no longer be aimed at any
targets in the United States.
Yeltsin's first major pronounce-
ment on disarmament cune only a
few hours after President Bush pro-
posed in his State of the Union
speech that the United States and
Russia take big bites from their nu-
clear arsenals.
In a nationwide broadcast,
Yeltsin told the Russian people he
is ending production of two big
bombers and long-range cruise mis-
siles and stopping development of
new offensive nuclear weapons.
Those were among several cut-
backs in nuclear programs designed
to reduce Russian military spending
10 percent this year, on top of last

year's 20 percent cut. That will al-
low Russia to focus more resources
on urgent consumer needs and re-
structure its crippled economy.
As his taped speech was broad-
cast, Yeltsin told Secretary of State
James Baker Russia would no longer
target its long-range missiles on
U.S. civilian or military sites.
"We no longer view the United
States as a foe," Russian Foreign
Minister Andrei Kozyrev told re-
porters after the meeting.
Yeltsin did not speak for
Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan,
the other former Soviet republics
that have strategic nuclear weapons
on their soil. All four agreed last
month to put nuclear weapons under
a joint command, but there have beer@
tensions among them about dividing
up the former Soviet military.
Marlin Fitzwater, the White
House press secretary, said
Yeltsin's announcement "certainly
sets the stage for very productive
talks" at Saturday's meeting
between Bush and Yeltsin at the
presidential retreat at Camp David,

Study shows more tobacco ads,
fewer articles on smoking hazards


BOSTON (AP) - Magazines
that rely on cigarette advertise-
ments - especially women's maga-
zines - published fewer articles
about the hazards of smoking, a
University of Michigan study con-
Smoking critics have long con-
tended that tobacco ads sway the
print media to soft-pedal the effects
of smoking. But until now, there
have been no clear data to back up
the suspicion.
However, a new study published
in today's New England Journal of
Medicine concludes there is "strong

statistical evidence" that smoking
advertising and coverage are closely
"We found that as the percentage
of advertising revenue from
cigarettes rose, the probability of
discussing the hazards of smoking
fell," said Dr. Kenneth Warner. "It
tends to confirm the conventional
wisdom but in a manner that was
never possible before."
Warner, chairman of public
health policy at the University's
School of Public Health, based on
his conclusion on an analysis of 99
U.S. magazines published between

1959 and 1986.
Among the findings:
- Magazines that refused to
carry cigarette ads were 40 percent
more likely to discuss the dangers
of cigarettes than those that did.
- Women's magazines that did
not print cigarette ads were more
than twice as likely to published
stories on smoking and health.
- Smoking coverage fell as the
ads increased. For each 1 percent in-
crease in cigarette advertising,
smoking coverage declined by al-
most 2 percent in women's mnaga-

- The association has grown
stronger over time. In the 1960s,
magazines that carried smoking ads
were nearly twice as likely to cover
smoking health issues as they were
in the 1970s and 1980s.
"I have no idea whether it's true
or not," George Gross, executive
vice president for government af-
fairs at Magazine Publishers of
America, a trade group, said of the

does not recognize how little to-
bacco advertising magazines have."

months was under serious
The Bush proposal that would be
felt most keenly by Americans was
one he ordered with no need for con-
gressional approval: a reduction in
the income tax the government
withholds from paychecks. The
change will take hold by March 1,
and will increase take-home pay by
an average $300 for 90 million wage

On a state level, President Bush's
proposed 1993 budget would pump
more money into Great Lakes
cleanup and a joint project with the
Big Three U.S. automakers to de-
velop battery technology for elec-
tric vehicles.
The administration's spending
blueprint, made public yesterday
also includes funds for Michigan*
transportation and water projects.
But it proposes canceling a $46
million River Rouge water-quality
program inserted into the current
budget by members of the state's
congressional delegation.

and discuss why they did it.
"IFC is dealing with the prob-
lem in question and trying to ar-
range some educational programs,"
Foster said.
IFC President Bruce Namerow
said he considers the poster unac-
ceptable and hopes that this incident
will not reinforce negative
stereotypes about the Greek system.
"It was something done by two
or three guys," Namerow said.
"Fraternities are part of society and,
like the rest of society, there are
people who are sexist and racist."
Namerow said he is looking into
programs designed to educate fra-
ternity men about the harm caused
by sexism.

"I went down to SAPAC
(Sexual Assault Prevention and
Awareness Center) to see how we
can fix the problem," Namerow
said. "We have set up a system-wide
sexual awareness week."
Namerow said IFC cannot pun-
ish the entire fraternity for the
actions of a few members.
"The only thing we can take ac-
tion against is the keg because a
house should not be advertising
alcohol for dry rush," he said.
Kata Issari, interim coordinator
for SAPAC, said many people have
come to the office to express their
anger over the flyer.
"I find it deeply disturbing be-
cause it reinforces views that
women are rewarded as prizes for
certain types of behavior or in

certain situations," Issari said.
A Theta Delta Chi officer who
wished to remain unidentified said
the men who hung the poster are not
representative of the house.
"Why do we have to offend any-
body? We have worked for two
years to improve the image of fra-
ternities, and then something like
this comes along - it's like shoot-
ing ourselves in the foot," he said.
Executive Director of Theta
Delta Chi National Donald Apel
said he was unaware of the offensive
rush poster.
"This is the first I've heard of
this alleged incident, but I will
follow up on it," Apel said.
Flyers posted by Theta Xi during
rush last semester were also
described as offensive to women..

prises," such as research, rather
than devoting funds to faculty
"The issues of individual rights
and academic quality are tied to-
gether and both areas are damaged
when you run the University ac-
cording to a corporate model,"
Polk said.
In addition, Polk's resolution
said, "The 'U' as a Corporation"
concept encourages University fac-
ulty to devote more resources to
profit-generating enterprises, such
as corporate and federally funded
research, and fewer resources on un-
dergraduate and graduate
Polk also cited the resignation
of English Language and Literature
Prof. Robert Hornback as further
proof of "faculty disenchantment
with 'The 'U' as a Corporation'
Polk is asking the assembly,
through her resolution, to condemn
the concept of the "University as a
Corporation," establish links with
the faculty Senate Assembly to an-
alyze the University budget and
suggest reforms that would bene-
fit students, and authorize the Aca-
demic Affairs Commission to fur-
ther investigate the effect of the
"U as a Corporation" on students.

Bullard said the wealthiest por-
tion of the population can easily in-
vest in foreign markets, drawing rev-
enues away from American compa-
nies, and still receive a tax break.
The capital gains tax, he said, will
have no effect on stimulating the
He also said that Bush's tax cuts
are a ploy to gain popularity points
for the upcoming election.
Truscott disagreed with Bullard
claiming the capital gains tax will
work to get the middle class back
into the economy, enabling them to
invest again.
Truscott said Bush's trip to Japan
shows he is working to counteract
foreign investment. "We must make
a strong case for American invest-
ment," he said.
"Most economists believe that if
you cut the capital gains tax, it will
spur the economy," said Gary Cates,
press secretary for U.S. Rep. Carl

Pursell (R-Plymouth). He added that
any assets that turn a profit, whether
the investments are on Wall Street
or in Asia, will be taxed, generating
revenue for the American

"The people I know want jobs
and want jobs that pay more than $6
an hour and want health insurance,"
she added
But Rep. Margaret O'Connor (R-
Ann Arbor) complimented Bush's
economic proposals and said, "He
sounds more conservative, maybe
because Pat Buchanan is on his
heels. He's trying to get the conser-
vative wing back behind him."
She favored a hands-off policy
and explained that when government
plays an active role in private enter-
prise problems are sure to follow.
Cates said Bush's economic plan
will initiate a cycle of growth. Be-
cause tax laws drive investment deci-
sions, he said that Bush's programs
will stimulate more money to circu-
late through the economy.
A major question is how
Congress will receive Bush's pro-
posals. Bush asked Congress to
unite, lay aside bi-partisanship, and
quickly pass his proposals to address
the growing needs of the public.
