0 n Nov. 20, President Ronald Rea-
gan, and Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev met face-to-face for the
first time to discuss methods of reduc-
ing nuclear weapons and improving So-
For eight hours on the 20th and
21st, the two leaders sat directly
across from each other and tried to set
guidelines that would reduce the num-
lber of nuclear weapons produced by
leach country to end the rivlary be-
ltween the two superpowers.
Both Reagan and Gorbachev agreed
l that the number of nuclear weapons in
reach country must be reduced. How-
iever, neither of the two leaders could
aagree upon a proper method of disar-
'mament. Gorbachev would not seri-
: ously negotiate unless Reagan decided
lto abandon his proposal for a "Star
iWars" defense program, something
lPresident Reagan would not do.
When the summit ended on Nov. 22
.very little progress toward arms reduc-
ltio had been made. According to re-
iports, the two leaders agreed to re-
iduce nuclear weapons by 50 percent.
ll-lowever, the weapons that would be
ucut were not specificed.
Other agreements included cultural
iexchanges and a promise to hold fu-
lture summit meetings. -
According to American and Soviet of-
lficials, if anything at all resulted from
tthe summit, it was a willingness be-
itween the two countries to talk and
rnegotiate with each other and to avoid

Nearly 20,000 people were killed or
reported missing when the South
American city of Columbia was de-
stroyed by the eruption of the 17,716-
foot-high volcano, Nevado del Ruiz, on
The explosion reportedly occured
from the buildup of molten rock and
trapped gases caused from the move-
ment of two of the earth's tectonic
Following the eruption, streams of
lava and ash rocketed down the moun-
tainside, melting the snow and ice
which blanketed the mountain, and
caused giant mudslides to bury towns
lying on its edge.
The Lord Jeffrey Inn, in Amherst,
closed its bar and restaurant on Nov. 6,
leaving nearly 50 union employees
The decision to close the inn came
after a sharp decline in food and bever-
age sales, which reportedly made up
55 percent of its income. The lack of
business was believed to be the result
of a strike by members ofthe local 217
Hotel and Restaurant Employees
Union, who began picketing on Oct.
24th over a contract dispute. Many de-
livery drivers would not cross the pick-
et line to deliver supplies to the inn,
thus leaving its stockroom nearly emp-
ty. According to inn executives, ap-
proximately S200,000 will be lost this
fiscal year because of the decline in
On Nov. 15, employees began a cam-
paign to gain community support by
visiting local colleges and requesting
donations for the 50 laid-off workers.
