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- viet-American relations. 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 1 the action-counteraction tactics of the rpast. 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 Nov. 20. 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 plates. 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 without jobs. 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 sales. 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. Union director, Rob Traber, said that The University of Massachusetts Stu- dent Center for Educational Research and Advocacy and the Student Govern- ment Association endorsed the union's efforts.
