.S. won't retaliate after expulsion of diplomats
AP Diplomatic Writer
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Reagan
administration acknowledged yester
day that restrictions imposed on the
U.S. Embassy in Moscow would limit
“our ability to monitor what hap
pens” in the Soviet Union.
But the administration decided not
to retaliate for the expulsion of five
more American diplomats and urged
the Soviets to “put behind us” a
dispute over diplomats and spies.
Declaring a cease-fire, Charles E.
Redman, the State Department
spokesman, said, “We need now to
get on with resolution of the larger
issues affecting U.S.-Soviet relations

Frustrated with University, Beyers leaves post

The University’s decision to “sever

Gayle Beyers, who resigned from
her position in September, will com
plete her last day of work at the
University today and will fill the
position of assistant director of stu
dent activities at Ball State Universi
ty in Indiana next month.
Arthur Costantino, associate direc
tor of Student Organizations and Pro
gram Development, said members of
the office of student organizations
and program development will share
Beyer’s job responsibilities until a
permanent replacement is found.
Beyers said she felt frustrated in
her position, in which she advises 20
sororities and 52 fraternities the
second largest greek system in the
“The University said it does not
want to work with fraternities
except to provide a job position to
help the greeks now deal with any
problems,” Beyers said.
The University has posted the job
position within the University to find
a replacement until the end of June.
Then, a nationwide search will be
conducted for a replacement, said
Richard Funk, a graduate assistant
working with Beyers.

Soviets in Washington, New York and
San Francisco. An administration
official, who insisted on anonymity,
said Wednesday night that the expul
sion “decapitated” a Soviet spy oper
The Soviets also retaliated by im
posing stiffer visas and other restric
tions on Americans who work
temporarily in Moscow, such as on
construction of the new U.S. Embas
sy there.
Redman said similar curbs would
be put on Russian laborers here.
The U.S. official said the two gov
ernments had evidently accepted the
concept of “parity” in their diplo
matic complements and should move
on to arms control and other issues
Beyers said the University is using
the position of assistant director of
student organizations and program
development as the only link to the
greek community..
As part of the new Student Life
Policy, the University decided last
spring that it would no longer be held
responsible for the actions of any
student or greek organization in an
off-campus setting.
“I feel frustrated with the Universi
ty’s decision since I was not consulted
and greek organizations is my area of
expertise,” Beyers said. “The Uni
versity redefined entirely their rela
tions with greek organizations last
Spring Semester.”
Beyers said although she was a
member of the Alcohol Task Force,
she had no final input in the Universi
ty’s decision.
Stanley Latta, associate director
for Residence Hall Programs, said
the University followed the legal ad
vice given last spring when deciding
to change its Student Life Policy last
“Liability was a major consider
ation when the University evaluated
its relationship with off-campus ac
tivities,” Latta said.
The University did not rely on stu
dent organization advisers when re
considering the Student Life Policy as
much as on other issues because of
liability concerns, Latta said.
The University has told University
fraternities and sororities that “we
will only recognize greek organiza-
pursued by President Reagan and
Mikhail S. Gorbachev, the Soviet
leader, at the Iceland summit two
weeks ago. .
Adm. John Poindexter, Reagan’s
national security adviser, said Thurs
day that the expulsions have run their

and got on board.

Penn State is only one of a few
universities that has taken a “hands

concerning the use of alcohol, she

master degree in speech communica
tions at Bowling Green State Univer
sity in Ohio.
Before coming to Penn State in July
1983, Beyers worked as an assistant
dean of student organizations at
Southeast Missouri State University.
IFC President Pat Conway said the
University will be losing a leading
expert in greek organizations.
“The fact that Gayle has been
president of the National Association
of Fraternities for the past two years
is indicative of her expertise in the
area of greek organizations,” Con
way said.
Conway echoed Beyers concern
that she was not included when the
administration decided to implement
a new Student Life Policy.
“Gayle did everything she could do
into specific negotiating instructions
is a complex process.” he said. “A
decision on how best to table such
sweeping proposals is a tactical nego
tiating one.”
Gorbachev on Wednesday decried
the U.S. expulsions as “a provoca
tion,” while saying he still saw hope
for an arms agreement growing out
of the Reykjavik.
Presidential spokesman Larry
Speakes ignored the Soviet leader’s
criticism and focused on Gorbachev’s
assertions of good will.
“We believe an historic break
through occurred in Reykjavik and
there is no turning back,” Speakes
said. “For the first time, there is
serious discussion of arms reductions
rather than arms control.”
Crimson Tide
Lions hope to avoid wave
Collegian Sports Writer
Mere mention of the word sends visions of
football greatness whirling through the
minds of every true gridiron fan. In fact, to
most people in the country, Alabama is
probably more readily recognized as a
university than a state.
And why not? The Crimson Tide has a
winning football tradition that would stand
up to the accomplishments of any state, and
with the program dating back to 1892, Ala
bama football has.been around longer than
some countries.
In 92 years of football, the Tide have
rolled up 615 wins, 38 bowl appearances and
11 National Championships. Throw in 18
Southeast Conference Championships, the
'top winning-percentage of any collegiate
football team over the last 25 years and list
of other other honors and accomplishments
as long as an elephant’s trunk and you start
to get an idea of just how successful the
Alabama football program has been.
The big names have been as much a part
of that tradition as anything. Starting off
with Paul “Bear” Bryant then progressing
through names like Walter Lewis, Jeff Rut
ledge and Ozzie Newsome down to old
favorites like Ken Stabler, Ray Perkins and
Joe Namath.
Stop the list there or it will go on into next
This year, the tradition continues, and
when the sixth-ranked, undefeated Lions
faces No. 2 Alabama, 7-0, tomorrow at Bry
ant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, the Tide
will have all of that plus over 60,000 fans
going for them.
And they might not even need it. This
year’s version of the Tide has it all, the
tradition, the big names, the honor, the
whole ball of wax.
Tradition is covered by ’Bama’s head
... the University simply closed the
door on everything concerning
greeks,” Conway said. “IFC can only
be sorry that she is leaving.”
Beyers said another reason for her
decision to leave stemmed from
wanting to work at a smaller univer
sity. Ball State University has a stu
dent body of about 17,000 compared to
the University’s 35,000.
“Most of my family and friends live
in Indiana,” she added.
Beyers said during her three years
at the University, she has seen Pan
hel develop into a strong organization
with a high level of credibility and

coach, Perkins, who himself was an All-
American receiver for the Tide in 1960.
After stints in the NFL as both a player and
coach, Perkins career came full circle when
he took over for Bryant in 1983.
Perkins’ record at Alabama is 29-12-1
As for the big names, Alabama has one of
the biggest in football. Quarterback Mike
Shula is the son of the Miami Dolphins’
legendary coach Don Shula.
But although he has the name, the young
Shula does not depend on it.
The senior is a three-year starter at the
helm for the Tide and with at least five
games to go this season, Shula is third on
the Alabama career passing list with 3,530
yards. That is better than Namath, Stabler
and even the great Bart Starr.
This season he has thrown for 947 yards on
130 attempts for 10 touchdowns and eight
Shula directs most of his passes at flanker
Albert Bell, an All-SEC player last year who
has caught 18 passes for 214 yards, which
averages out to 11.9 yards per catch.
Alabama is also blessed with a great
halfback in sophomore Bobby Humphrey,
who already has 693 yards on 119 carries.
Gene Jelks, another sophomore halfback
who has not carried as much as Humphrey,
has amassed only 332 yards but has a 7.2
yards per carry average.
Despite the impressive statistics, Shula
thinks Penn State’s physical defense could
pose a problem for Alabama.
“They are physical and they don’t give up
much,” Shula said. They are only giving up

Speakes said the "ultimate goal” of
the United States is the elimination of
