Students hold to sex
BY BETH ROSENBERG
The public's attitude toward
marriage, divorce, and traditional
male-female stereotypes were
discussed yesterday at the "Changing
Family, Changing Workplace" con-
ference sponsored by the Center,for
Continuing Education of Women.
Regula Herzog, an assistant research
scientist at the University's Institute
for -Social Research (ISR), said the
results of her sampling of 2,500 1977
high school graduates show that the
students generally subscribe to
traditional male-female roles.
HERZOG, addressing 150 conference
participants in the Rackham Am-
phitheater, said the students approved
of the husband and wife sharing
responsibilities when no children are
involved. But, as soon as offspring en-
ter the scene, most high school respon-
dents said the wife should quit work and
stay home with the children.
A majority of both the male and
female respondents said less than full-
time employment by the male is unac-
ceptable, according to Herzog.

DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania (AP) -
Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev
stepped into the Tanzanian-Ugandan
border war yesterday with a "very en-
couraging" message to Ugandan
President Idi Amin, Uganda Radio
. The radio, monitored in Nairobi,
Kenya, said the message was the
"best" received by Amin from another
head of state since the border war
began a week ago and indicated
Moscow's desire for peace. Contents of
the message were not disclosed.
..MEANWHILE, the government-
owned press here indicated that Tan-
zania will not be content to drive
Amin's forces from Tanzania but will
. take steps to overthrow the "idiot" dic-
Ugandan troops crossed the border
into Tanzania last Monday and Amin
announced he was annexing 710-square
miles of Tanzania's northwestern
According to unconfirmed reports in
Nairobi, Amin has dispatched mem-
bers of his country's "suicide bat-
talion" and a mechanized regiment to
positions in the rear of the battle zone
with orders to shoot any Ugandan sol-
dier retreating or attempting to desert.
According to Ugandan exiles, Ugandan
soldiers on the front are without dry
food rations and morale is low.
BREZHNEV'S message 'followed
remarks by Secretary of State Cyrus
Vance last week calling for withdrawal
of Ugandan troops from Tanzania.
: Uganda Radio said Amin warned the
superpowers to stay out of the conflict
because it is strictly an African affair.
The Daily News, Dar Es Salaam's
- government-owned newspaper, said
that until the invasion Tanzanians
"were willing to suffer the idiot as a
neighbor whose utterances and actions
were detested but whose fate would be

But now "that he has ordered his
troops to kill our people and occupy
part of our territory makes it necessary
for us to deal with him in a manner that
will put an end to this sad story," the
paper said in an editorial.
AMIN SAID THE invasion was in
retaliation for Tanzania's alleged
Cuban-backed incursion into Uganda
the previous week and Tanzanian
President Julius Nyerere's refusal to
recognize Amin's political legitimacy.
Tanzania denied it invaded Uganda and
said the charges were ridiculous.
Nyerere has said his country has no
choice but to "hit back at him until we

African leaders, meanwhile, laun-
ched a diplomatic offensive to end the
bloodshed. Three top African envoys
arrived in Kampala, the Ugandan
capital, for talks with Amin, and
Kenyan President Daniel Aran Moi
urged peace in a telephone conver-
sation with the Ugandan leader. .
Uganda Radio said Amin met with
Peter Onu, a special envoy from the
Organization of African Unity (OAU),
and suggested the OAU name a special
committee, acceptable to both him and
Nyerere, to mediate the war. The radio
quoted Amin as saying there is no
reason the two nations cannot be
brought to an understanding. But
Nyerere has rejected suggestions for
Mohammed Zuwai, Liby'a's minister
of information and culture, went to
Kampala carrying a message to Amin
from Libyan strongman Moammar
Kadafy, a major financial backer of the
Ugandan leader. Zuwai reportedly held
talks with Amin and was expected to go
to Dar Es Salaam for discussions with
Tanzanian officials. Sudanese envoy
Phillip Obang also was in Kampala
yesterday for talks with Amin.
