Shultz defends actions in Central America

DETROIT (UPI) - Secretary of
State George Shultz vigorously defen-
ded U.S. actions in Central America as
"entirely laudable and proper" yester-
day and said the involvement cannot be
compared to the Soviet invasion of
Shultz, in a question-and-answer
session following a speech to the
League of Women Voters convention,
said the U.S. is striving for "democracy
and the rule of law" in the region.
THE SECRETARY was asked to
define the difference between U.S. in-
volvement and the Soviet invasion since
each country has said its respective ac-
tion was in the national interest.
That's an entirely different category
of activity than the activity of the
U.S.," Shultz told the 1,600 delegates.

SAN FRANCISCO - James Durwood
Harper, who pleaded guilty to selling
key U.S. missile secrets to Communist
agents, was sentenced yesterday to life
in prison by a judge who called him a
"traitor" and said he would recom-
mend he never be paroled.
The government alleged Harper, 49,
sold the documents to Polish agents for
between $250,000 and $1 million and that
the-Poles delivered the information to
Soviet KGB agents.

Shultz said the Soviets in 1979 sent
100,000 troops into Afghanistan, and
that the offensive continues four years
later. Shultz repeated charges the
Soviets are using chemical and toxin
weapons against civilians there and in
southeast Asia.
"THIS IS a portion of the world that is
on our doorstep and where the security
interests of the U.S. are very vitally af-
fected," said Shultz.
"As far as the U.S. is concerned, what
we have supported is democracy and
the rule of law as well as economic
development," he said, describing U.S.
involvement as "entirely laudable and
proper objectives."
In his speech, Shultz said patient,
bipartisan unity behind the President is
documents "not for philosophical
reasons but for greed and money," U.S.
District Judge Samuel Conti said he
would recommend Harper never be
given parole.
HARPER PLEADED innocent in
December to six charges of stealing
Minuteman missile secrets and papers
outlining the United States' ability to
survive a nuclear attack.
Last month, he changed his plea to
guilty on a single count of conspiring to
sell defense secrets. Eight other counts
were dismissed in exchange for Har-

ms control talks with the Soviets.
"If America appears divided, if the
Soviets conclude that domestic political
pressure will undercut our negotiating
position, they will dig in their heels
even deeper."
If one of the negotiating partners
seems overeager or desperate for
agreement, he said, "The other side has
no reason to offer a compromise and
every reason to hold back, waiting for
the more eager side to yield first. It is
paradoxical but true: standing firm is

The information he sold for $250,000
provided Moscow with more than 100
highly sensitive documents detailing
the MX and Minuteman missiles and
U.S. nuclear defense capabilities.
The papers included details of
technology closely linked to President
Reagan's "Star Wars" defense
proposals, said ballistic missile expert
John Cunningham.
Harper will be eligible for a parole
hearing in 10 years.

Six colleges freeze fall tuition levels

However, both the House and Senate
dismissed this plan and it has all but
It did not die, however, before Ferris
State decided to freeze tuition levels.
Bill Taylor, a spokesperson for the
school, said officials had frozen tuition
because they hoped they would receive

an increase in state appropriations.
Taylor said the school is
contemplating a tuition adjustment
now that the governor's proposal has
been killed.
Officials at other schools said the
governor's plan paid no part in their
decision to freeze tuition.
According to George Johston, EMU's

planning director, the school began
contemplating a tuition freeze last fall
- before Blanchard even mentioned
the freeze.
While the freeze will save students'
money, officials said their schools will
have to delay maintenance work and
not purchase new equipment. However,
Robert Romkema, vice president for

financial concerns at EMU said this is
the price colleges must pay.
"It's a matter of priorities. We also
realize our students have problems
(paying tuition)," Romkema said.
"We're clearly not going to be able to do
everything we want to do. It's certainly
not going to be a fat budget."

Hilbert said that faculty would be in-
terviewed by Berger and placed into
positions in programs within the
education school that are not being cut
based on their expertise.
Hilbert also said that SACUA has
been working for two years on a policy
on the discontinuance of faculty
positions. This policy, if implemented,
would "put tenured faculty somewhere
in the University" in some sort of post,
said Hilbert.
"It is too early to tell," Hilbert said.
"There may be enough retirements,
enough-faculty taking jobs in the ad-
ministration, and enough faculty taking
positions in other universities - there
is no way of knowing if any faculty are
at risk in any of the schools."
