Take Ten
The University's Inter-House Assembly recommended the Board
of Governors of the Residence Halls drop the dorm requirement for
sophomore women on September 24, 1968. But it was ten years ago, af-
ter all, and the Assembly members still reacted favorably to the
Board's decision to retain a mandatory live-in rule for first year
students. Also ten years ago members of the all-black fraternity Kap-
pa Alpha Psi were raising questions about the fairness of the criteria
for selection of the 1968 homecoming queen.

Beethoven's Missa Solemnis
may be Heaven to some ears, but
it won't sell many records. It
seems the Mormon Tabernacle MORMO
Choir has finally opened its eyes:
to this fact. Among the sundry
obscure discs we receive was this
collection of school fight songs,
entitled Hail to the Victors and
adorned by one of Michigan's
own Maize 'n' Blue pom-pom
girls. Even the illustrious Mor-
mon Tabernacle has caught on to
the fact that what's on the record#
need be of little relevance to what
lies within. As for her, well, she's
not the conductor - not yet, at0
least. We're rooting for her.

Look for a continuation of the lovely fall weather through the end
of the weekend and into next week. Today will be mostly clear with a
high in the upper half of the 70's. Little chance of precipitation to dam-

Egypt cheers returning Sadat

CAIRO, Egypt (AP)-More than
100,000 cheering Egyptians jubilant
over the new prospects for peace with
Israel welcomed President Anwar
Sadat home yesterday. But in
Damascus other Arab leaders put the
final touches on a "rejectionist" plan to
undermine the Camp David accords.
In Jordan, King Hussein reiterated
his country's objections to the U.S.-
engineered peace proposals and
chastised Sadat for suggesting that
Egypt might go it alone and negotiate
an agreement over the West Bank
without Jordanian participation in
peace talks.
Vance, meanwhile, played tourist for a
day in Saudi Arabia after being forced
to put' off for 24 hours a meeting in
Damascus with Syrian President Hafez
Vance, who is trying to sell the Camp
David accords to the Arabs, toured
Saudi oilfields yesterday. Assad asked
him to postpone his Damascus visit un-
til today because the Arab hard-line
summit ran overtime.
Sadat was swamped by thousands of
well-wishers at an airport reception at-
tended by the entire Egyptian Cabinet
and all 360 members of Parliament.
Security police were forced to push the
crowds aside so Sadat could reach his
Cadillac convertible for the triumphant
ride into Cairo, where he was cheered
by tens of thousands lining the streets.
THEY CROWDED under arches
holding Sadat's picture and in front of
stores festooned with colorful banners
proclaiming the Eyptian leader a
"Hero of Peace."
Sadat had flown in from Morocco,
where he spent three days talking with
King Hassan II without winning that
moderate Arab leader's public support.
In the Syrian captial, the leaders of
the Palestine Liberation Organization
and four hard-line Arab states opposed
to the Camp David accords met for a
fourth day to complete a "final political
statement" from their summit, the
group's spokesman said.
THE GROUP included Liban leader
Moammar Khadafy, PLO head Yasser
Arafat and Presidents Hafez Assad of
Syria, Houari Boumedienne of Algeris
and Ali Nasser Mohammed of South
In Saudi Arabia, U.S. sources said
that after Assad's postponement
request Vance wanted to cancel the
Syrian visit, but then decided to wait in

order not to offerd the Saudis, who had
arranged the meeting.
Syria is the final stop on the
secretary's Mideast mission. -He has
already conferred with the Saudis and

support for the accords but receiving no
AT A NEWS conference in Amman
yesterday, Hussein repeated his coun-
try's objections to the new Egyptian-
Israeli agreements-that they do not
provide for total Israeli withdrawal
from Arab lands or for the right of
Palestinians to establish their own state
in those lands. He said he would join the

peace process only if the accords were
Hussein also said that Sadat "has no
right to feel more concerned about
the West Bank than we do."
The king clearly was implying that
Sadat must not negotiate alone with
Israel for regaining ,the West Bank if
Jordan chooses not to join the
neogtiations, something Sadat has in-
dicated he might do.
The accords call for the end to Israeli

military government on the West Bank
of the Jordan River and the Gaza Strip
followed by a self-governing
Palestinian entity there. But they do not
spell out precisely the kind of entity
that will be established, nor do- they
specifically commit Israel to a
timetable for withdrawal of all troops.
Jordan is asked under the plan to take
part in the peace negotiations and to
contribute to a police force on the West

assimilation a Russian Jewish family faces in an upward mobile
society. As the traditional orthodox wife of an increasingly suc-
cessful businessman, Kane is incredibly convincing.

enable him to call up the ERA bill as
early as tomorrow, although the
senator said he hasn't decided yet on a
firm date.
However, Byrd told reporters the
way is now clear for Senate con-
sideration of the bill before Congress'
scheduled Oct. 14 year-end adjour-
nment. And he said he intends to take it
up-thus addressing concerns ex-
pressed by some ERA proponents that
the Senate might not even consider the

set of rules, Byrd's rapid-fire sequence
of maneuvers automatically forced the
ERA bill onto the Senate's calendar of
pending business and ruled out any fur-
ther\ debate on the question of
scheduling the measure.
- Thus, while foes of the ERA-
extension bill can still filibuster the bill
itself, they can no longer use direct
delaying tactics to keep it off the floor.
At the same time, Byrd warned in a
floor speech that a filibuster against the
extension might backfire on the op-
ponents. He said it could kill their op-
portunity to amend the House-passed
extension to allow states to rescind
their ratification of the ERA.
If a filibuster-breaking question is
passed by the Senate, Byrd said, at-
tempts to amend the ERA bill to allow
stats to rescind their approval would
likely be ruled out of order.
