Three senators to,

propose Cambodian aid

From Reuter and AP
BANGKOK -Three U.S.
senators said yesterday they would fly
to the Cambodian capital of Phnom
Penh today to seek permission to open
an overland supply route to provide
relief for famine and disease stricken
Cambodians.
They told a press conference their
proposal to drive relief trucks from
Thailand into war-ravaged Cambodia
had the support of Thai Prime Minister
Kriangsak Chomanan and that Viet-
nam's foreign policy chief, Nguyen Co
Thach, had given them assurances of
security for the convoys.
The three senators, Democrats
James Sasser of Tennessee and Max
Baucus of Montana and Republican
John Danforth of Missouri, arrived on
Sunday to study conditions of thousands
of refugees who have poured into
Thailand from Cambodia. They dre
preparing a report for President Car-
ter.
THEY VISITED relief camps along
the border areas yesterday and this
morning had a 30-minute meeting in
Bangkok with Thach, Vietnam's
Minister of State for Foreign Affairs.
The senators would like to get a green
light from the Phnom Penh government
for their proposal to send truck convoys
carrying a daily load of 1,000 tons of
food into the country from Thailand for
six months.
Although aid programs-have begun
for the estimated 2 million people who
face starvation, Phnom Penh continues
publicly to refuse aid from agencies
who also supply areas controlled by
ousted Premier Pol Pot. The remnants
of Pol Pot's supporters are waging a
guerrilla war against the Heng Samrin
government that was installed by Viet-
nam last winter.

ployment rates could double in

IN NEW CASTLE, Ind., he said, one-
third of all jobs might be lost; in
Kokomo, Ind., 40 per cent of all jobs.
These cities also would face heavy
tax losses, he said.
Consumer advocate Ralph Nader
said in an open letter to subcommittee
chairman Rep. William Moorhead,
(D-Pa.), that "A Chrysler bailout will
establish a dangerous precedent. Sud-
denly in board rooms across America,
executives of lbig busipess wW'be en-

Young calls for Chrysler bailout

couraged to make uneconomical
decisions in the belief that whatever
happens, Washington will bail them out
in the end."
Nader favors federal aid for
Chrysler's 130,000 workers, but not for
the company.
Some committee members, including
Moorhead, have indicated by their
questions they might favor even larger
loan guarantees than Chrysler now is
asking. The company has scaled down
its request from $1.2 billion.
BUT REP. Thomas Ashley, (D-
Ohio), asked whether loan guarantees

for Chrysler would not give that com-
pany "a preferential place in credit
markets."
"Would it mean that my Toledo is
going to be denied?" Ashley asked.
Rep. Norman Shumway, (R-Calif.),,
wanted to know, "Is it going to be the

rule of the federal government to aid
every company that's going to fail?"
Young replied that aid should be
given when a company's failure. would
harm the entire economy. A Chrysler
failure, he said, would add to the
current recession.

operations in the United States-the tip
of the oil company iceberg most
familiar to Americans. Rather, they
came from a variety of sources, depen-
ding on the company.
Here are a few questions and answers
on how big oil made big profits this
quarter.
Q. With prices of gasoline and
heating oil going up so fast this sum-
mer, how could oil companies not make
large profits from their American
operations?
A. Although prices rose
dramatically, the companies say their
costs were rising faster. Price controls
on gasoline and other products kept the
companies from pushing prices up as
fast as costs were rising, they say.

And Exxon, for one, says its price foi
oil products in the United States are
slightly lower than most of its com-
petitors', a statement confirmed by in-
dustry analysts. Exxon says that also
limited its profits on U.S. operations.
One analyst says it was an attempt by
Exxon to be "statemanslike"-and a
good way of keeping profits from being
higher.
Q. That may be so, but the prices are
very high. Aren't the companies just
ripping off the American public?
A. That's an oft-repeated charge,
especially when oil company profits
come out. But there's no proof that oil
companies created the energy crisis to
push up prices and are now reaping the
benefits.

ternal committee, said her group is
examining coherence in the women's
studies curricula, the nature of
teaching and research in the program,
and the role of such courses in the.
University itself. Besides Saxonhouse,
Sociology Prof. Howard Schuman,
Assistant Anthropology Prof. Joyce
Marcus, and Economics Prof. Gavin
Wright sit on the committee.
Although the internal committee
members have no background in
Women's Studies, Saxonhouse said she
doubted that will present problems with
their examination of the program.
"That's why there are external con-
sultants," Saxonhouse said. "We're
open-minded. We want to learn."
KNOTT SAID the review of Women's
Studies is commonplace, and that other
University projects such as the Pilot
Program and Residential College are
reviewed periodically. Knott added that
the Women's Studies Program was
supposed to be reviewed three years af-
ter its inception, but not until this year
did the two executive committees
decide a review should be conducted.
Women's Studies Director Margot
Norris said when her program was
initiated, its goal was to' coordinate
women-related courses in various
'departments.

Dayan's news conference Tuesday
morning came minutes after his
resignation-submitted Sunday-took
effect. Asked about charges he was an
opportunist leaving the government
during a time when one crisis seems to
come after another, the former general
and war hero said:
"I think it's nonsense. I'm not leaving
because the government is in a weak
position. How is it weaker than it was
six months ago?" He said he left
because of a disagreement on the
Palestinian problem.
Dayan acknowledged Begin, faces
economic and political troubles, but
said, "I thinly they will find a way to

overcome it."
IS PLANS DID not include starting
a new political party, Dayan said, and
he didn't expect to serve again as a
government minister. At age 64, he
said, "I hope to write a book about the
peace negotiations and the treaty we
achieved with Egypt."
Begin said he does not favor imposing
Israeli sovereignty on the West Bank
and Gaza Strip. The government plan is
known to include this as an option after
five years of Palestinian self-rule.
In. Washington, U.S. mediator Robert
Strauss told Congress yesterday, "We
don't have a single thing on the shelf
that we've completed" in the
negotiations. But, while Egypt and
Israel "are miles apart" on the
autonomy issue, America shouldn't put
pressure on them, he said.
