An Israeli journalist and specialI
ernissary and a Jordanian diplo-
natjoined in debate last night at
the Union Ballroom, after several
weeks of negotiation and re-de-
finement over who should speak
and what the debate format
should be
The debate was sponsored by,
UAC as part of International Em-
phasis Week.
The Arab students originally
chose Prof. Harold Wals* of Mich-
igan State and an Ann Arbor
Arab, Mohammed Shokeir. But the
Israelis objected to an American
debater,
The Arabs then chose a member
of the Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization, political arm of the Arab
resistance movements, to replace
Walsh. Again the Israelis objected.
After involved negotiation which
ended with cancellation of the de-
bate, the Arabs chose Dr. Burn-
hain Hammad, executive secretary
of the Arab delegates at the
United Nations. The Israelis then
agreed to participate.
The Israeli speaker, Samuel
.Segev, a prominent expert on
Oriental and Mid-Eastern affairs,
spoke for 30 minutes and answer-
ed questions the remainder of the
hour. The same format was fol-
lowed for Hammad, who spoke
after him.
Segev commented there was
"rnot the slightest parallel be-
tween the Algerian liberation

movement, the Viet Cong and
Fatah." He added the Al Fa
was one of the "first moveme
to operate on the assumption

He argued "Arab citizens
Israel enjoy full rights and c
liberties," and that the local A
population doesn't support the
Fatahtin part because it "wa

that has occurred in nearly ev

Dr. Hammad said "The Ar
demonstrated their willingness
a peaceful settlement by their s
port for the Security Councilp
posals of November, 1967."
He commented that Arabs "

Israel, not annihilate Jews."
added "not all Jews are Zionis
He commented "Zionists th

The first in the series of jury
trials growing out of the rent-
withholding strike s e v e r a I
hundred University students
are conducting produced a
judgment yesterday in favor of
the landlord,
Fred M. Rosen and Nancy
Rosen of 1120 S. Forest were

ordered by Ann Arbor District
Judge Pieter G. V. Thomassen
to pay $280 in back rent to
Arbor Management Co., plus
court costs, within 10 days.
Rosen is a U-M graduate stu-
dent in sociology from New
York City.
Dale Berry, a U-M law stu-

dent who is a member of the
Tenants Union steering com-
mittee that is conducting the
rent strike, said today the rent.
strikers consider yesterday's
judgment a victory because
Arbor Management Co. had
sought $300 damages. Berry
said no appeal of the judgment

is planned.
Jack Becker, attorney

for

Arbor Management, said the
$280 damages set by the jury
does not represent any reduc-
tion from the $150 monthly rent
on the Rosens' apartment, but
simply a $20 reduction from the
amount of rent Arbor Manage-

ment had claimed for February
and March.
A jury trial in another rent-
strike case, Arbor Management
Co. versus Virginia Lewis of
549 Packard, was expected to
take place late this afternoon.
Three s imilar trials a r e
scheduled March 27, and a
fourth on April 1.
