fraternity brothers are expected to
move into the Sigma Alpha Mu house
the first week in September with lit-
tle evidence around to remind them
of a July 5th fire, except perhaps a
twinge of dissatisfied curiosity.
According to Marshall Wallace,
the chapter advisor, the damage caus-
ed by the early morning fire on July
5 was "relatively modest" and he ex-
pects the repairs to be completed long
before classes resume.
The Ann Arbor fire department
arrived at 3:12 a.m. at the unoccupied
house at 800 Lincoln. The flames
were extinguished in less than 15
minutes. The fire chief declined to
reveal any information beyond "we
are treating it as a suspicious fire."
Arson may have been the cause of
the minor blaze, Wallace said. `The
fire was generated in a trash con-
tainer that persons placed in proximi-
ty to the front door." "Spent
fireworks" were discovered in the
The fire was limited to internal
sections of the front exterior wall,
what Wallace described as a 25-foot
section. Wallace chose to downplay
the entire incident. The $35,000 in
damage, primarily due to smoke and
water, will be covered by the fraterni-
ty's insurance policy.

members are Jewish, there was no

Direct to Israel?
Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israel of-
ficials were checking reports
Tuesday that Soviet
authorities will henceforth
allow Jewish emigrants to fly
directly to Israel via
Rumania, bypassing Vienna,
the usual transfer site.
Israeli media were
speculating, meanwhile, that
the current visit by a three-
man Soviet consular mission
to examine the status of
Soviet nationals and Soviet
property in Israel was, in fact,
a test by the Kremlin of Arab
reaction to a possible im-
provement in Soviet-Israel

ready to change its policy of
