Visiting Prof. Shuval optimistic
about Israeli-Egyptian relations

Professor Hillel Shuval, visiting
faculty member from Israel's Hebrew
University, presented what he called an
"optimistic scenario" of relations bet-
ween Israel and Egypt to a group of
about 70 in the Michigan Union last
"I don't want to predict," he said,
. but I think that within a number of
months we will see a signing of the
peace treaty."

SHUVAL, WHO is a member of the
National Committee of the Democratic
Movement for Change, a major Israeli
political party, said a strong desire for
peace among the Israeli people may
bring peace soon. .
"First of all, it is wrong to un-
derestimate the human side of it. There
is a deep grass roots feeling towards
peace," he said. He mentioned the way
he felt when he recently received a
telephone call from Cairo: "It was ex-
citing to think that we will be able to
Shuval said it is naive to neglect the
external political forces of foreign in-
tervention in the Mid-East, or
American foreign policy aimed at
peace between the two nations.
Although "it may seem far-fetched,"
Shuval predicted that some day outside
forces may impel middle eastern coun-
tries to unite for defense purposes..
the development of peace, according to
Shuval, is the economic condition of the
two countries. Shuval said that since
Israel spends more on defense than any
country, and young people are required
to serve in the military, Israel cannot
use these resources for more produc-
tive purposes. "This saps our energy
for other things - social welfare and
the arts," Shuval stated. "The
economic motivation (to end the

fighting) is there."
SHUVAL SPOKE highly of Egyptian
President Sadat. "It is much easier to
take a country to war, but Sadat has
prepared to take the long path to
peace," he commented.
Shuval says he does not claim to be a
prophet, but he did make some predic-
tions as to what will happen if peace is
achieved in Israel. He said he an-
ticipates a normalization of relation-
ships between Israel and Egypt that
will bring an exchange of ideas between
scientists, writers and artists. "This in-
termingling of people is where the
peace is really made," he said.
SOMEDAY SHUVAL hopes to see the
development of a Palestine-Jordan
state. "Terrorism will not end, but the
burning hate will dwindle out with
energies going into development of
Palestinian self-autonomy," he predic-
Shuval also projected that the Arabic
language will attain its "rightful place"
as a language of culture in Israel after
peace comes.
Shuval, who did graduate work at the
University School of Public Health 25
years ago, said he is often called a
'dove'. "I'm not a dove because I'm
afraid to fight," he said. "I have fought
in all four Israeli wars." Instead, he
said he is a 'dove' because he believes
peace is definitely best for Israel.

Detroit to host GOP convention

(Wim Wenders,1969) 7 only-Aud A
Director Wim Wenders (ALICE IN THE CITY, AMERICAN FRIEND) first made
waves with this daring experiment in time and narrative. Wenders tried to
film the spirit of rock 'n roll, and dedicated this film to his favorite rock
group. "Wenders' imagey plugs on and on in the mind. He may be the most
i talented director to emerge from the German New Wave."-Frank Rich,

Upstate New York is the setting for the most heralded rock festival in history,
featuring the best in rock 'n roll-Hendrix, Havens, Arlo Guthries, the Who,
and many more. A counterculture deja vu-a film that reminds you of what

YOUNG IS now using his clout in the
Democratic party-and his cozy
relationship with President Carter as
one of the administration's most loyal
supporters-to score a double coup and
lure the Democrats here for their 1980
convention. The Democrats have not
yet named their site selection commit-
Detroit, however, does not have

enough facilities to house all of those at-
tending the convention, and some
delegates will stay here in Ann Arbor.
Two University dormitories and at 12
area hotels and motels will serve as
lodging for the July guests.
Peter Schoch, director of Housing In-
formation here, said the University will
make North Campus dormitories Bur-
sley and Baits available to delegates.
The University regularly makes dor-
mitory rooms available during the
summer months for conference groups,
and Schoch said last year the Housing
Office grossed $400,000 on conference

dollars when the Republicans come to
town. Bill Gudenaw of the Conference
and Visitor's Bureau estimated the
convention could pump. $1 million into
the local economy-"And that's
peanuts compared to what Wayne
County will get."
GUDENAW SAID about 70 per cent,
or 1300, of the city's hotel rooms are
committed to the delegates for the July
convention, during the height of the
tourist season. "The tourist-type person
will be displaced," he said.
Republican mayor Louis Belcher said
he personally lobbied the site selection
committee to choose Detroit. "I gave
'em hell," Delcher said. "They always
choose a Miami or a Dallas or'
something else.... They needed to get
up here in one of the Northern urban
centers where the action is, where
people are getting laid off and worrying
about inflation."
Belcher pointed out that the GOP's
mid-July convention will also coincide
with the annual Ann Arbor Arts
Festival-the potential makings of a
very busy summer.
GETTING THE 1980 convention is a
retirement present of sorts for state
GOP chairman William McLaughlin

who will be stepping down from that
post at the end of the month.
McLaughlin, who lobbied his party in-
tensively for months on Detroit's
behalf, said in a statement yesterday,
"As a city, (Detroit) represents both
the problems and potential of urban
America, and our party must address
these if it wants to be a continuing force
in American politics." .
The losers in yesterday's decision
were the Southern Republicans and the
mostly Reagan-supporting conser-
vatives, who tried unsuccessfully to use
parlimentary procedures to block the
choice of Detroit.
The committee beat back a move to
force the selection committee to
produce a list of alternate cities, and
during the floor debate, one of the
Motor City's opponents called Detroit
"a depressing site" in which to hold a
After the vote, Clalke 'Reed of
Mississippi said that tlhe publicans
"made a hell of a big politicalmistake"
in picking Detroit. Reed was quoted
earlier as saying "I'm the only white
man from Mississippi who has ever
been to Detroit. I don't want to be the
only white man from Mississippi who
has ever been to Detroit twice."


APARAJITO continues the story of the Bengali family met in Ray's first film,
after they leave their home to travel to the city of Benares on the banks of the
Gangaes. Primarily the story of Apu's adolescent encounter with education,
Roy's sense of humor is focused upon the village school system of India, with its
pompous principals and excitable pupils. The Benares sequences are initially
irmpressive, and eventually become a summation of the Indian temperament-
for once the East is open to Western eyes with a fresh, documentary freshness.

Bullard wants law to
control DNA research

Kelley's administrative assistants.
UPJOHN DID start DNA research
late in 1975. "Right now, we have no
full-time effort in effect," said Upjohn
spokesman Joe Haywood, "but about
half a dozen of our scientists are
presently doing part-time studies in
DNA work concerning infectious
diseases and the production of proteins
and antibiotics."
The work is being done in the Upjohn
labs in Kalamazoo under the NIH stan-
dards. Haywood said his company's
compliance with the federal standards
was fully voluntary, and added that a
biological safety committee reviewed
and approved all projects.
"We have to look at the possible
dangers of DNA research in a proper
perspective," the spokesman stated.
"A few years ago, when the field had
just opened up, there was a great deal

of concern over possible mishaps. Now
the feeling is that perhaps there was
overreaction to those concerns. The
early fears haven't materialized, but
that isn't to say that we shouldn't be
cautious in our work."
Haywood said the new state com-
mission proposed by Bullard is un-
necessary because of the present
registration requirement and the
possibility that the NIH guidelines will
be extended to private industry later
this year.
He said Upjohn is worried that action
by individual states could result in 50
different sets of DNA regulations. "The
state registration procedure coupled
with the NIH guidelines is more than
adequate to protect the public interest
and give researchers some latitude in
pursuing this important field,"
Haywood said.

TUDOR BRADLEY, the store
manager, said any new relationship
between the workers and the
management is "something to work out
between the union and the store." While
he said he doubted that there would be
any price fluctuations because of the
vote, Bradley said he would wait to see
how things worked out.
Assistant manager John Sappington
said there would have to be a "balan-
cing off of powers" to determine the
role of both sides. "We will have to
figure out" the relationship, he said, as
there are "two different views on the
union," one held by the management
and one by the employees.
"The board of directors defines the
store policy, making sure the students
are represented and the store is run in
the students' interests," Sappington
said. "The employees also have per-

sonal interests in the store which could
be totally exclusive of the students,
"MANAGEMENT must work for the
most effective management, and the
employees must work for their personal
interests, but both must do it for the in-
terest of the students," he added.
"That's the purpose of the store."
"I am ecstatic," remarked IWW
organizer Eric Glatz, who also serves
on the IWW International Executive
Board. "The Cellar will now be the
largest local branch in America," he
said. He added that the union, which
has 3,000 members nationwide, is "kind
of a large family. It's a worker's
democratic union."
The Cellar was created in 1969 by the
Regents when over 100 students oc-
cupied the LSA building, demanding a
student-run, non-profit bookstore as an
alternative to the high prices charged
by Ann Arbor bookstores. In 1970 it was
moved to its present location in the
basement of the Michigan Union.
