several million poor children each

"He's a conservative who wants to
save money when it comes to kids,"
Edelman said. She commended Senator
Carl Levin (D-Mich.), for being the
"pqwer house" behind the Adoption
Subsidies provision which passed last
week.
Edelman claimed children are used
for politicians' images. "Politicians
kiss babies on the street, but won't sup-
port our measures. We have found this
out- by scrutinizing their voting
behavior. The American public is
equally at fault."
EDELMAN SAID we emphasize the
virtues of family life, but the
discrepancy that exists between what
we yalue and what we do is proven by

the number of children placed in in-
stitutions who should not be in them.
HOWEVER, EDELMAN said she
believes that in many cases the gover-
nment is being used as a scapegoat for
the self-interest of industries such as
advertising and television, as well as
the failure of programs at state and
local levels. Her staff analyzes which
programs work and why, and how to get
around policy barriers.
"Most importantly, we learn how the
fiscal budget works. It's true that 'he
who controls the budget controls the
policy' especially in the 'case of
children, who are not involved in the
political process. The key is not
sophisticated policy, though, but per-
sistence," she said.
According to Edelman, 10,500
children in this state live outside of the
home in institutions.

WEST BANK OFFICIALS R ESIGN IN PROTEST:
Israelis affirm ousting of mayor

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP)-The Israeli government
yesterday reaffirmed its decision to expel the Arab
mayor of Nablus, who authorities claim is sym-
pathetic to PLO terrorism. The Cabinet decision
brought a rash of resignations from Arab officials in
the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.
The mayor's supporters sought help in
Washington, at the United Nations, and in Canada.
BY THE END of the day, according to a spokesman
for the West Bank military government, all elected
officials of the West Bank's 25 towns had resigned,
and the mayors and town councilpersons of Gaza City
and Khan Yunis in the Gaza Strip had followed suite
to express solidarity with the jailed Bassam Shakaa.
Although the occupied territories remained
generally calm, police in Nablus discovered a time
bomb and Israeli troops exploded it without problem,
officials said.
Some youths threw rocks at Israeli cars in Nablus,

where shops were closed for the fourth stright day in
sympathy with the mayor, jailed Sunday without ex-
planation.
SHAKAA'S CASE was considered at the highest
level of Prime Minister Menachem Begin's gover-
nment because of worries about violent protests in
the West Bank if the Supreme Court denied Shakaa's
pending appeal and he is expelled.
But the government also was concerned that it
would appear weak if it rescinded its decision to
banish the firebrand mayor.
The case against Shakaa developed last week after
the mayor told an Israeli general, he understood the
reasons for Palestinian terror raids in Israel, in-
cluding the March 1978 coastal road massacre in
which 34 Israelis were killed. Many Israelis were
enraged at Shakaa's remarks, but he said the gover-
nment twisted his words and he denied making pro
terrorist remarks.

IN CAIRO, Prime Minister Mustafa Khalil ex-
pressed concern the Shakaa case would increase the
tension in the occupied territories during
nagotiations on Palestinian autonomy.
"Israel pledged at Camp David to take measures to
restore confidence between it and the Palestinian s
living in the West Bank and Gaza, but instead it is
taking provocative actions that absolutely do not lead
tolthat," Khalil said after a Cabinet meeting.
IN WASHINGTON, a group of Arab Americans
asked the State Department to issue a statement op-
posing the expulsion but State Department
spokesman Hodding Carter said no statement would
be issued pending the outcome of Shakaa's appeal.
AT THE UNITED Nations, the Palestine
Liberation Organization appealed to Secretary
General Kurt Waldheim to intervene in an effort to
stop the expulsion, but there was no comment from
Waldheim.

The 'new' Iggy Pop:
No fun anymore

Alfred Hitchcock's 1943
LIFEBOAT
A striking melodrama of survivors from a ship torpedoed by a Nazi submarine
-a cynical poule de luxe, an opportunistic tycoon, a Cockiney drainer, a
pensive black and a menacingly efficient German are the chief characters.
The camera eye never leaves the boat, the only background sound is of the
sea. With TALLULAH BANKHEAD, JOHN HODIAK and WILLIAM BENDIX.

"ERASERHEAD" explores the dark areas where spirit struggles
with matter, where the subsconscious is made manifest,
where an inhuman environment is contrastd with the deepest
human emotions.

nightmare in a film of extraordinary power.

needed to make a song like "Living on
Dogfood" more than just a mindless,
nasty little rocker wasn't there.
IT'S NOT HARD to see why the geek

ant to eat chicken heads for a living?
esides, Iggy's every move, his whole
ersona, has been aped by scores of
spiring "punk rockers" with varying
egrees of success. That was clear
rom Tuesday's opening act alone. The
enizens are a young, suburban band
hat have taken this influence to heart,
ith a lead singer almost religious in
is imitation of our hero. Okay, so their
leaned up dual guitar boogie (a la
Back in the U.S.A.) cooks with a
ashionable "pop" bounce. But what
an they do, now that they've backed up
their obvious main influence?
Hopefully, they will try some thing
new: these guys are too talented to get
caught in a historical rut at such a ten-
der age.
The second supporting act, Skafish,
managed to catch the daring spirit of
early Iggy without being imitative of
anyone. Their distinctive blend of vocal
harmonies and early Za ppa -influenced
rock centers around a singer who looks
like the androgynous mutant offspring
of Dick Van Dyke and Herman Mun-
ster. Suffice to say his vocal range
stretches farther than both the male
and female members of his band.
There simply isn't too much to say
about Iggy Pop's homecoming. He has
matured as an artist and performer

without compromising or selling out
and Tuesday night's professional, well-
received concert bares this out. If
people want to gawk, they can go see
Skafish. Iggy and his new band enter-
tained me, but I woke up feeling bored
and frustrated as usual the next day.
And I still look to rock and roll to find
the reason why.
