Amin pledges troop withdrawal,
but Tanzania will continue war

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP)-Ugandan
President Idi Amin announced yester-
day he has ordered the withdrawal of
his troops from their two-week-old "hot
pursuit" invasion of Tanzania. But
Tanzanija denounced the statement as
"complete lies" and "camouflage" and
vowed to keep fighting.
"The struggle continues," said a
Tanzanian government statement
issued in reply to Amin's announ-
cement.
THE WITHDRAWAL order was an-
nounced in a telegram to the

Organization of African Unity, the
United Nations, and the Arab League,
Radio Uganda said.
"I have decided to withdraw my ar-
med forces to the recognized border of
Uganda and Tanzania in spite of the
provocations which earlier led them to
Tanzanian territory in an exercise of
their right of hot pursuit," Amin was
quoted as saying.
Tanzania replied: "The aggression
constituted a declaration of war against
Tanzania. Tanzainia reiterates its duty
to its people and the Organization of

African Unity, namely to oppose the
acquisition of territory by force."
AMIN WARNED that any Tanzanian
attempt to enter Uganda in pursuit of
his army would be "dealth with
decisively" and bring renewed blood-
shed.
Amin also asked Tanzanian
President Julius Nyerere to curb
political activity of exiled former
Ugandan President Milton Obote, who
lives in Dar E~s Salaam, Tanzania, and
Ugandan exile groups based in Tan-
zainia, Radio Uganda said.

By MITCH CANTOR
Political Science Assistant Prof. Joel
Samoff told a small gathering in East
Quad's Greene Lounge yesterday mor-
ning that students too easily accept
standards placed upon them by the
University.
The topic of the second meeting in a
two-day conference examining tenure
and academic freedom at the Univer-
sity, was "Reworking the Institution."
Samoff, a Marxist political economist
and expert on Africa, gained campus-
wide attention after he was denied
tenure for the second time last
February.
THE PROFESSOR emphasized that
people often assume their lifetime
capabilities coincide with the standards
assigned to them by society. ;
"What's very dramatic is the extent
to which the certification (by the
school) in internalized ... and to begin
to think of life's chances in terms of this
certification," Samoff said.
"People say, 'Well, I have a 3.2
average, and I'm basically a 3.2 per-
son,' " he added.

ANOTHER POINT Samoff stressed
was that to bring about change, people
must follow through with their actions.
"Some of the things you (students)
are willing to try the University will
frown upon. Then what, give up?" he
asked.
Elaborating on the topic, the con,
troversial faculty member said
separate, uncoordinated attempts to
resolve problems only avoid the issue
on a large basis. He used the Univer-
sity's Residential College as an exam-
ple of filling a need on the campus, as
"institutional reform on a small scale."
"IT'S NOT A substitute for broader
change. The whole idea that you can
carve out a corner of the thing (the
University) - that won't work,"
Samoff said. He added that the problem
which was originally addressed in such
instances will usually recur within
"five years or so."
"The trap is the danger that once you
pass a barrier and reach another one,
people are afraid to try and break
through the second one," Samoff said.
The political scientist used the con-
tinuing battle between the Graduate

the University as an example of h
students must follow through on atte
pted changes.
"In general, they'll be able to wear
out more than we'll be able to we
them out," Samoff said. "GEO play
all of the rules straight. .. and t
University is saying, 'we'll wait t
years if you want to.. . don't hold yo
breath, we can holdout.' "
