THE REV. ERNESTO Cardenal, an
elderly Roman Catholic priest who
claims Sandinista membership, said in
San Jose, Costa Rica, that the
guerrillas were not defeated.
"The Sandinista front has not lost. It
has had a great victory. The fact that it
could not hold the cities for a long time
and had to withdraw does not signify a
defeat," he said.
The uprising, the latest and bloodiest
in nine months of violence in
Nicaragua, began September 9 with
rebel attacks on cities throughout the
SOMOZA'S 7,500-MAN national
guard, armed and trained by the United
States, finally bottled up the rebels in
the three northwestern cities of Leon,
Chinandega and Esteli. Leon fell Satur-

The Sandinistas take their name from

who led guerrilla warfare against U.S.
Marines in the 1930s. The group was.
strongly Marxist-Leninist when foun-

clergy groups in Nicaragua that want
Somoza out. A nationwide strike that
businessmen joined to try to force his
resignation is in its fourth week.
Somoza has vowed not to step down
until his six-year term ends in 1981.

Chinandega after the towns were

the hardcore Sandinistas had been
joined by youths fighting with a variety

When the guard began its air bom-

dinistas slipped into the hills.
National guard troops would not im-
mediately permit reporters into Esteli
but those who visited Leon and Chinan-
dega said entire blocks were burned.
Residents buried civilian dead in un-
marked graves for fear the ntional
guard would link any gunshot death
with resistance and arrest other mem-
bers of the family. Most of the young

Deadline set or EMU striA

YPSILANTI (UPI)-A judge, acting
on a lawsuit brought by a student who
claims he's getting cheated out of a
college education, yesterday gave both
sides in the Eastern Michigan Univer-
sity (EMU) strike four days to settle
their differences.

Judge Ross Campbell said he would or-

work under their old contract which ex-
pired Aug. 31.

ROSS SET THE deadline at the con-
clusion of a seven hour show cause
hearing on a suit filed by Eric Williams,
a 23-year-old EMU senior from Grand
Rapids. Williams, unable to get an at-
torney to take his case, presented-his
own arguments.,..r

university failed to inform him when he-
registered for the fall term that he
would have to cross picket lines to at-

and the American Association of
University Professors, which represen-
ts some 600 faculty members.
ALTHOUGH THE judge declined to
issue an immediate back-to-work or-
der, he also refused to dismiss
Williams' suit as requested by an
AAUP attorney.

Cox nixes Nixon return

Former Watergate Special
Prosecutor Archibald Cox said yester-
day during a Detroit appearance he
does "not think there is any place" for
former President Richard Nixon in
public life.
Acknowledging a "bifurcated feel-
ing," Cox said, "I still think that all of
us should unsparingly condemn what he
did." Cox also expressed sympathy for
the personal anguish Nixon suffered as
a result of his resignation.
Detroit's massive Renaissance Center
heard Cox say: "I don't want to see you
(Nixon) suffer, but when you're looking
for a position of public trust, I'm not
going to forget the past."
professor, who was fired by Nixon
during the famous "Saturday Night
Massacre" in 1973 made his remarks at
a press conference before delivering a
speech to the Labor Relations Law Sec-
tion at yesterday's opening session of
the forty-third annual meeting of the
State Bar of Michigan.

ting to hear Senator Patrick Moynihan
were instead treated to twenty minutes

Claiming that his lawyer had inven-
ted a new word, "write-offable," Cosby
told the assembly of attorneys: "I paid
$30,000 for it."
Cox tackled a variety of questions in
lis forty-five minute news conference.
Questioned about guidelines regulating

the relationships between university
faculty and intelligence agencies which
are now being considered at many
campuses across the country, Cox ex-
pressed his opposition to "any under-
cover work on campus on behalf of the
CIA" and particularly to undercover
recruiting of foreign students.
COX WAS ONE of the framers of the
guidelines drawn up at Harvard
University. University officials are




Cox expressed doubt, however, of the
necessity for the establishment of a
nation-wide organization to counteract
government spying.
"Qualitatively, I am sympathetic to
their point of view. But quantitatively, I
don't see enough spying to get excited
about it," he said.
