Roosevelt, who understood the aca-
demic needs of Israel and the world,"
Harman said.
IN HIS presentation speech, Harman
referred to the recently concluded con-
ference of non-aligned nations in
Havana at which Israel andEgypt were
"condemned and excoriated" for the
"crime" of making of peace. "I hope
my country continues to commit that
crime with the rest of its neighbors," he
said.
Harman also said "Our greatest vic-
tory during these (Israel's) past 50
years, after all that we have been
through, is that we have reared a
generation of men and women that does
not hate."

As he prepared to present the
honorary fellowship, Harman noted
that many people in Israel know
Milliken for his support of human
rights, but that Milliken has not yet
visited Israel. He chided, "We haven't
seen you yet in Israel, but we all know
your name."
MILLIKEN responded, "I fully ex-
pect before the expiration of my term
as governor to be able to visit your
country."
He also said, "The establishment of
the fellowship fund in my name has a
'very special meaning for me because of.
the admiration I have for the nationa
and the people of Israel, the strong

belief I have in the value of higher
education, and the importance of
Hebrew University for Israel."
Milliken said the timing of the dinner
was especially poignant because this
week the American people are seeing a
re-broadcast of the television movie,
"Holocaust."
"THE SERIES gives a "more
meaningful perspective to the impor-
tance of Hebrew University as the cen-
ter of intellectual development in the
Jewish state," Milliken said. "Serving
as it does students from Israel and from
among the youth of the world," hecon-
tinued, "Hebrew University is a unique
and irreplaceable resource."
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem,
Israel's foremost institution of =higher
education and research, was
established in 1925. More than 14,000
students attend classes on its four cam-
puses located throughout the country.
"Relations between the University of
Michigan and Hebrew University are
''natural and unplanned - the best
kind," Harman commented. There is a
"lively exchange" of professors and
students between the schools, he said.

Carter plans aid so poor

can pay for ri
(continued from Page 1)
Carter if he thought he could beat
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), if
Kennedy challenges him for the
Democratic presidential nomination.
"I feel confident about the future," was
Carter's reply.
White House press secretary Jody
Powell, however, told reporters aboard
Air Force One that the president will
fight to the end against any challenger
who seeks the nomination.
In revealing his proposal to aid low
income families, Carter proposed a
long-term plan to begin the winter of
1980-81 that would expand aid to non-
welfare families. Under this plan, aid
also would go to households with in-
come below 125 per cent of the federal

sing fuel costs
poverty level. Based on the present
poverty level, families with incomes up
to $8,500 a year would be eligible for
benefits.
THE SIZE OF the grants would vary
from state to state depending on the
severity of winters, but would average
roughly $100 a year for individuals
living alone and $200 for families.
Carter also again asked the oil in-
dustry to freeze home fuel prices and
extend adequate credit to individuals.
He said he expected the inflation rate,
now at an annual 12 to 13 per cent, to go
down the'rest of this year because he
did not forsee addition 1979 price in-
creases by the Organization iof
Petroleum Exporting Countries
(OPEC).

False alarm
Contrary to rumors going around campus, the "cage" under construction at the Michigan Union's main floor will not
house a gorilla, but "money machines" from local banks.

Hijacker surrenders, frees

W. German jet

BONN, West Germany (AP) - A
young man hijacked a West German
jetliner in flight; held out in a day-long
standoff at the Bonn airport, insisting
that the nation hear his demands for "a
humane world," and then surrendered
last night.
The man, identified as Raffael Kep-

pel, 31, surrendered at 5:20 p.m. An of-
ficial said Keppel described himself as
an author from the small central Ger-
man town of Rothenburg upon Fulda.
THE HIJACKER freed the 119
passengers and four of the eight crew
members unharmed seven hours after
the Lufthansa Boeing 727 landed at

Reluctant but ready,
claim GM workers

Bonn-Cologne Airport. But he had kept
four crew members aboard the plane,
demanding to talk to Chancellor
Helmut Schmidt and a television news
crew.
Schmidt apparently remained in his
9ffice in Bonn, while his chief aide,
Hans-JuergenWischnewski, went to the
airport tower to take part in the
negotiations.
Lufthansa spokesman Franz Cesarz
said no one was injured, and the
weaponthe man brandished during the
hijacking was a toy pistol. Cesarz said
Wischnewski talked to the hijacker
"with great endurance and a lot of in-
telligence," convincing him to release
the four crew members and surrender.
THE FLIGHT originated in Paris,
stopped in Frankfurt and was on its
way to Bonn-Cologne when it was
hijacked.f t swas hbt kn,(Vn whg the
hijacker bo.Arded theoliight."'
After the 'plane was parked, ,drawn;
out negotiations began with the crew
radioing the hijacker's demands to
Wischnewski in the tower.

Ham radio operators who listened in
on communications between the cock-
pit and airport tower said the man read
a 20-minute political manifesto deman-
ding a West German referendum on
nuclear power, improved child care,
and abolition of the armed forces.
"ALL I WANT is a humane world in
which it is worthwhile to live," he was
quoted as saying. He complained that
ex-convicts are marked for life because
of certain entries in their identification
documents. After reading his
statement, he freed the 123 hostages.
In negotiations that followed-,
Wischnewski asked the man "to be
humane himself" and release the rest
of the crew, Cesarz said.
"The crew is free. I only have a toy
pistol," Cesarz quoted the hijacker as
replying. Wischnewski then agreed to
meet the hijacker aboard the plane.
Wj.cngwski told reporters
preparations had been made to end the
hijacking by other means if the talks
failed. He did not elaborate.

Willow Run plant,. and 32 parts
warehouses. The strategy of striking at
only select plants will allow the $295
million strike fund to last longer than if
a general strike were called.
"We could hold out for a long time,"
claimed a union representative.
BUT MANY DID not prepare
adequately for the possibility of a
strike, and are worried about making
their small savings last. I
"We're buying a condominium," ex-
plained Deb Lukomski, an assembler at
the plant. "If we strike, the bank isn't
going to finance it."
"It's hard to put food on the table with
$50 a week," said another worried em-
ployee.
Most of the workers believe there will
be a strike, and their guesses on its
duration range from two days to three
months.
"I HOPE IT'S a month," said Anita
Presley. "My husband works at Ford,
and as long as he's working, I'd like a
little vacation."
But the replies were more serious
when it comes to how long workers
can afford to be on strike.
"I can hold out for about a week. and
that's it," said a grim Johnny Wyms.

"My kids will eat up the strike pay, and
when that's out, my creditors will just
have to wait."
WYMS SAID he was better prepared
nine years ago, when the UAW struck
General Motors for 67 days. "My wife
was expecting then," he said. "I had'
money saved.">
Both the UAW and GM are remaining
silent about the progress of
negotiations. Chief negotiator for Local
1776, Richard Debs, and George Francis,
who heads the negotiating team for
GM, both refused to comment on the
progress of the talks.
But one union representative handing
out leaflets at the assembly plant gates
said, "We're definitely going on strike
Friday. No doubt about it. We're too far
away from an agreement on'pension
and paid personal days."
THE MAJORITY of workers inter-
viewed don't want to go on strike. Most
are behind the union, but they know $40
or $50 a week won't go far. Those who
have been planning will be better off
than some, and those without families
may find the going less rough. But most
are preparing for the worst, and are
confident they will weather the storm.
"Nobody wants to strike," said John
Moore, a maintenance worker who has
been with GM for 20 years. "I can make
it." After a pause, he added, "I got to."

State Dems backKennedy

(Continued from Page 1)
Tucker, a Southfield attorney who
heads Michigan's main fund-raising ef-
fort in support of Kennedy.
The draft Kennedy movement
statewide appears to be gaining
momentum from Kennedy's hints that
he may run in 1980, but some potential
Kennedy backers say they are waiting
for Kennedy to make an announcement
on his candidacy before they join a
draft Kennedy campaign.
FABER ',AND other top city
Democrats said yesterday city
Democrats would vote overwhelmingly
for Kennedy if he ran in a state
primary, but they indicated that an of-

ficial draft Kennedy movement in the
city from the Democratic Party could
be delayed until Kennedy formally an-
nounces his candidacy.
"True party people don't go for that
splintering, they're not going to jump in
right away before Kennedy declares hi's
candidacy," Second Ward Chairman
Scott North said.
NONE OF THE three ward chairmen
surveyed said they were strong Ker
nedy supporters, but they said they
would vote for whoever won the
Democratic presidential nomination in
1980, out of fear that otherwise 'a
Republican candidate could win the
election. "

Vance attempts to 'cool' Cuban controversy

From AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - Aides say
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance is
trying to cool down the crisis at-
mosphere over the presence of Soviet
troops in Cuba by conducting a
prolonged series of low key negotiations
with Soviet Ambassador Anatoly
Dobrynin.
The two continued their discussion of
the issue over lunch yesterday.
MEANWHILE, President Carter's
uphill fight for Senate approval of the
Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty
(SALT II) received a setback yesterday
when Senator Russell Long announced
he will vote against it.
Senator Long, a Louisiana Democrat
and chairman of the Finance Commit-

tee, told a television interviewer that he
had objections to the treaty and that
any doubts about which way he would
vote were removed by the U.S. asser-
tion that a Soviet combat brigade had
been detected in Cuba.
He said this meant the Soviets were
not keeping faith with the agreement
made with President John Kennedy
following the Cuban missile crisis of
1962.
The Carter administration continued
to refuse all comment on the substance
of the Vance-Dobrynin negotiations.
But officials said they expected a long
series of meetings might be necessary
to achieve a satisfactory settlement.
THIS, THEY added, was part of the
administration strategy. By meeting

often and saying nothing, the ad-
ministration hopes to develop an at-
mosphere of routine business.
This was seen as a way to end the
crisis atmosphere which rapidly arose
during last week's series of revelations
and news conferences.
State Department spokesman Hod-
ding Carter said, however, that the ad-
ministration has not been impressed by
public Soviet denials that the troops in
Cuba form a combat unit.
HE SAID there is no dispute within
the administration about that
evaluations which intelligence analysts
reached last month.
President Carter said yesterday that
rejection of the SALT II treaty could
cause America's allies "to search for a
weaker relationship with us :and a
stronger relationship with the Soviet
Union and others."
Addressing 125 religious leaders at a

White House breakfast, the president
said Senate refusal to ratify the nuclear
arms control treaty could mean the end
of a common U.S.-Soviet effort "to find
a way toward reduction and eventual
elimination of nuclear weapons from
the face of the earth."
THE BREAKFAST began a full day
of lobbying for the treaty by the
religious leaders, who represented
more than 40 organizations.
The coalition of 175 U.S. religious
leaders representing 40 religious
organizations scheduled personal visits
with 62 senators.
VICE PRESIDENT Walter F. Moi
dale told members of the Religion's
Committee for SALT in the Senatb
Caucus Room that while the pact is ndt
perfect and will not result in the deep
cuts in arms that the United States
sought, it remains an important step
forward.
