Gorbachev asked to meet Lithuanian leader over sanctions
MOSCOW — Lithuania on Monday asked Mikhail S. Gorbachev to meet with the republic’s president to provide details of Moscow’s threatened economic sanctions so that Lithuanians can be prepared.
It would be Gorbachev's first meeting with Lithuanian President Vytautas Landsbergis, who was elected after the republic declared itself independent March 11.

2 students, guards trade blows at UV
By Paul Malcolm
Two university students were allegedly harassed and beaten by University Village security guards outside the 32nd Street Cafe early Friday. Village security officials said Monday, however, that the students were harassing the guards, who were prompted to arrest one of the students.
Steve McPartland and Steve Grubic, seniors majoring in international relations and finance, respectively, were leaving the 32nd Street and walking toward the Security Pacific and Great Western Federal banks around 1 a.m. when Village security officers followed them in their vehicle, McPartland said.
Grubic said he remembers one of the guards asking, "You guys got a problem?"
McPartland, who had a few drinks at 32nd Street, said Grubic was very drunk and yelled back.
"We said, 'What are you going to do, give us a parking ticket?' and we called them losers,'" Grubic said.

Housing hike to pay for Access; tuition up
By Katie Sweeney
Tuition and housing rates have been finalized for next year, with the tuition increase the lowest in several years at 6.9 percent, while the housing rate increased by 9.6 percent.
Next year's flat tuition is set at $14,112.
About 2.5 percent of the rent increases will go to pay for the equipment and installation of the Access residential entry system, said Bill Thompson, director of Housing Services.
Last year's 9.9 percent increase in housing rates did not go to pay for the purchase of the equipment or installation of the Access system, but instead was due to inflation, cable installation and ad ditional security personnel at university apartments, residence halls and some remote parking lots, said John Curry, university vice president for Budget and Planning.
Though the average housing rent increase will be 9.6 percent, some apartments and dorms will increase more than others, Thompson said.
Rent for residence halls will increase about 10 to 12 percent, apartments close to campus will have an eight to nine percent increase and apartments north of the Row will have a rent increase of about eight percent, he said.
Next year's increase is due not only to the Access system, but also new union wages, administrative overhead, utilities and salary increases, Thompson said.
The university used a loan to pay for the Access system, Thompson said. All payments the university made this year on the Access system were taken out of that loan.
However, starting July 1, the university
will begin making interest payments on that loan, to be taken from the rent increases.
The Access system will be paid off after 15 years, Thompson said. He added that next year's rent increase is a “one-time rent increase to cover the cost of equipment and installation."
The Student Health Center fee also will increase by 10.2 percent to $216 next year, due to significant increases in the costs of hiring physicians and nurses, Curry said.
"I think we've generally done a good job in keeping health care costs down for the students," he said. "This particular year is a difficult one."
While the housing increase is comparable to previous years, Curry said next year's tuition increase was "the lowest in many years." Last year's increase was 7.8 percent.
"We're working to bring the growth rate down over time," he said. "President Zumberge has asked us in our planning materials to work to bring the rate down three-tenths to five-tenths (of one percent) a year."
Curry said the university will attempt to do this by "managing harder" and by selective cost-cutting.
"We don't foresee a large growth in revenues in the next few years," he said.
Some of the reasons for next year's rise in tuition include faculty and staff pay raises and "almost double digit" increases in utilities and costs of library materials, Curry said.
Due to inflation, he said he expects salaries to increase about 4.5 to 7 percent.
The university also is bringing on line a major new telecommunications system,

and all universities to "get our act what he sees as arrogant" attitudes toward otner cultures.
