call for

In one of the largest demonstrations
on campus so far this year, nearly 80
people called yesterday for the ex-
tradition of the deposed Shah of Iran
and an end to the harassment of Iranian
Anti-deportation sentiment appeared
to run thick among the approximately
250 spectators who gathered. They
shouted such slogans as "Nuke Iran,"
and "Hell no; he won't go," in response
to the demonstration.
THE DIAG demonstration was
organized by an ad hoc committee
angered by death threats allegedly
received by some Iranian students.
There are roughly 250 Iranian students
on campus. None were present at the
LSA senior Bob Warren of the Young
Socialist Alliance, one of the groups
organizing yesterday's noon demon-
stration, said, "It's as if Hitler had
come here for asylum," referring to the
shah. "Iran has sovereignty on this
issue." Warren also said he knew of at
least one Iranian student who has
received a threat on his life.
"We have to remember that these are
innocent people coming here for an
education. When you hear 'Hiroshima,
Nagasaki, Tehran,' that's brutal.
That's sick," Warren continued.
LSA JUNIOR Ted Kanakis, who bur-
ned an effigy of the Ayatollah Khomeini
in a demonstration last week, said,
"I'm not against non-harassment. I'm
against deporting the shah. We're sub-

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP)-Gun-
men stormed the Grand Mosque in
Mecca, which shelters Islam's holiest
shrine, yesterday and seized a number
of hostages, the official Saudi' news
agency reported.
The Saudi authoritis took all
necessary measures to bring the
situation under control and protect the
lives of the hostages, the agency said,
adding that the attackers carried "a
quantity" of arms and ammunition.
The agency did not identify the in-
vaders. It said they sneaked into the
mosque court yard during dawn
prayers yesterday.

Nuclear power defended, attacked

In an atmosphere reminiscent of the
traditional American town meeting,
about 100 people last night heard
debate on the safety and economics of
nuclear power from a four-member
panel composed of two nuclear
engineers from the Bechtel Power
Corp. and two area anti-nuclear ac-

THE DISCUSSION, sponsored by the
University Office of Ethics' and
Religion, drew an audience evenly
divided between pro- and anti-nuclear
stances, with few undecided on the
"I didn't come to have my mind
changed. What I came for is to better
understand the other side, so I know
what I'm up against," said Jim Murphy
who is opposed to nuclear power.
"Unfortunately, it (the nuclear power
issue) is being identified as a pro- or an-
ti-nuclear issue, and I hear nothing
about the fundamental issues at stake,"
said Vance, adding that there is a
"smear campaign" directed at the
nuclear power industry.
"WE ARE threatened by an abuse of
the democratic process where people
are trying to accomplish goals that they
are not stating," he said.

He said the Arab states have effective
economic weapons, "among which I
mention oil," and the time had come for
a special summit on the economic
strategy of the Arab states.
Iraq's earlier calls for an Arab
economic summit have been blocked by
opposition from other league members
including Saudi Arabia, the richest
Arab country.

bers were represented by their highest-
ranking leaders at the formal opening

But, according to Sinclair, anti-
nuclear activists want to preserve the
-technoloy of today and "don't want it
threatened by technology that's poorly
devised and poorly executed."
Panel member Judy Grady, a
Bechtel engineer, focused her
discussion on the need for nuclear
power in the future. She predicted a 20
per cent increase in the nation's work
force in the next decade which will
require increases in energy availability
to ensure a healthy American economy.

She said affluent Americans could
withstand the lowered standard of
living she claimed would result without
increased nuclear power. But, she said,
40 per cent of the country's population
could not economically survive a
failure to devleop nuclear power. She
also said that for much of the world, an
energy shortage would mean star-
Sinclari countered saying, "There is
a great push in this country by the
nuclear power industry to convince
people that nuclear power is indispen-

dible." She said that nuclear energy
supplies only one sixty-fourth of the
nation's energy.
Schwartz, a University mathematics
instructor said, "I believe among other
problems, nuclear power is creating a
world we wouldn't want to live in. Thee
are some very frightening aspects to
nuclear power,"
Schwartz said nuclear weapons
proliferation would be a direct result of

Dayan expresses optimism on Palestinian
autonomy talks during WMU speech

countries to use their "very effective
weapon"-oil-to punish Israel and its

Iraq's President Saddam Hussein,

Hussein told the assembled Arab

Special to the Daily
KALAMAZOO - Former Israeli
Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan-who
resigned last month in frustration over
Palestinian autonomy talks-expressed
optimism last night that those talks
would produce a solution by next May.
Dayan, on a tour to seven U.S. cities,
said although the talks had been
proceeding slowly for the last two
months, moderate Palestinians on the
West, Bank in the Gaza strip "will soon
realize that negotiating for autonomy is
the only practical solution in the
alternatives. One is to continue to live
under the Israeli administration. The
other is to be their own leader. I think
they'll choose the later," he said. The
May 1980 goal was set during the Camp
David accords.

Dayan's optimism, sounded before an
estimated crowd of 2,500 atWestern
Michigan University's Miller
Auditorium, seemed to contrast
significantly with the frustration he ex-
pressed when he resigned last month.
He apparently quit because he op-
posed the Begin government's
negotiating stance in the autonomy
AND WHILE confidently predicting
that the Begin government is flexible
enough to produce a settlement, Dayan
said his government is eager to get out
of the occupied territory.
"We will not interfere with their
lives. We will let them run their own
future. We don't want to make them
come under our sovereignity," he said.
At each expression of optimism, the
64-year-old war hero stressed the
Israeli government demand sufficient
security in exchange for any agreement
reached. He said he believed a solid ac-

cord can give both' Palestinians fair
representation, and enable the Jewish
state to live in secure boundaries.
BUT EVEN AS he spoke, ap-
proximately 100 Palestinian demon-
strators marched outside, calling
Dayan a "murderer" and proclaiming.
the right of the Palestinians to have
their own state.
In a leaflet distributed by the
Organization of Arab Students it said,
"Moshe Dayan is a first class represen-
tative of Zionism where he participated
in many of the killings and the
establishment of Zionist settlement
upon a demolishing and deterioration of
the Palestinian people.
Inside the auditorium however, the
remarks of pro-Palestinian supporters
was toned down considerably, although
some occasionally interrupted the for-
mer general.

that the booths could be put to better use on my ship. It was

Ivy League snootiness. As McFarlane explains it, Baxter is
a tuition-free university that, despite various curricula,
awards just one degree - 101.6. The school's founder was
Horace Schmedlott, who used his $4.3 billion recession-
proof diamond fortune to create the university in 1913.
Faculty members at the school are selected in much the
same way as baseball players eligible for the free-agent
draft. No word yet on the prowess of Baxter's football team,
but the school does have a jogging pig squad. McFarlane
said he read about an experiment at UCLA on the effects of
jogging, with the scientist using pigs to test his theories..
