Egypt will attend
revived peace talks

From AP and Reuter
Egypt has accepted an American in-
vitation to take part in ministerial-level
peace talks aimed at breaking the
Mideast deadlock, and Israel is expec-
ted to agree to attend.
The talks probably will be held at
Camp David, Md. later this month.
The likely participants are Egyptian
Foreign Minister Mustafa Khalil,
Israeli Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan
and Secretary of State Cyrus Vance.
EGYPTIAN President Anwar Sadat
accepted the invitation delivered in
Cairo by American Ambassador Her-
mann Eilts yesterday. The Israeli
Cabinet met to consider the invitation,
but put off a decision until its regular
meeting Sunday.
Israeli officials said Dayan almost
certainly would attend the talks. Eilts
said the date and place of the meeting
will not be disclosed until Israel an-
nounces whether it will attend.
HOWEVER, Israeli officials
cautioned against high expectations
from the further round of talks with
They said Israeli government teams
were drawing up position papers to be
presented at the meeting, but that the
success of the talks depends upon
changes in Egypt's position.
"If Egypt does not agree to com-;
promise on the disputed provisions in
the proposed peace treaty, there won't
be any progress," one official told
Another official expressed disappoin-
tment over a report yesterday by the
state-run Cairo Radio charging Israel
with basing its policies on "Zionist and
imperialist ideologies."
THE RADIO report urged the United
States to "act forcefully" to halt what it
termed Israeli stubbornness.
"This is a blatant call for the U.S. to
lean on Israel and somehow force us to
accept Egypt's new demands," the of-
ficial said. "This is an old tactic and
Cairo should know by now it just won't
He said Israel had "steadily shown its
flexibility even during the visit last

month of special envoy Alfred Atherton
- and both the U.S. and Egypt know
this. The Egyptians now must show the
same spirit of compromise."
ANOTHER government official said
the chief stumbling block remained
Egypt's insistence on linking the
proposed bilateral peace treaty with
future developments in the Israeli-
occupied West Bank of the Jordan and
Gaza Strip.
The official agreed with Egypt's ac-
ting foreign minister, Boutros Boutros
Ghali, who told the Egyptian
parliament's foreign relations commit-
tee on Tuesday that the differences with
Israel were "profound and political"
and not simply technical or legalistic.
The negotiations have been stalled
since November and shuttle diplomacy
by roving Ambassador Alfred Atherton
last month failed to get them going
Each side has dug in its heels on what

the treaty would mean to prior Egyp-
tian defense pacts with Arab nations
and whether the treaty should be linked
to progress toward Palestinian
autonomy in the West Bank and Gaza
EGYPT SAYS the treaty must not
bar it from honoring previous commit-
ments and favors linking the treaty to
Palestinian autonomy.
Eilts told reporters yesterday he
could not predict whether a ministerial
meeting at Camp David could lead to
another summit of the type held by
President Carter, Sadat and Israeli
Prime Minister Menachem Begin there
last fall.
Meanwhile, Israel's cabinet yester-
day approved tough economic
measures designed to control a 48 per
cent inflation rate.
The proposals were made by Finance
Minister Simcha Ehrlich, who has been
criticized recently for not holding down
Israel's cost of living.

which he is helping to process. The papers will be available for research purposes in 1981.

Bakhtiar faces
anti-shah mobs

warehouse near Crisler Arena'lie the ship's wheel from the
SS Mayaguez, a landscape painting from the Emperor of
Japan, and a vase from the People's Republic of China.
These gifts, along with 15 million pieces of paper and a
mass of audio-visual material, record the career of Univer-
sity graduate andformer President Gerald Ford.
ALL THE MATERIALS will eventually be roused in the
Ford Library on North Campus. Construction of the two-
story, brick and glass structure began last month and is
scheduled to be completed in 1981. According to Bentley
Historical Library Director Robert Warner, the building
will be "compatible in external and internal appearances"
with the Bentley Library, which is adjacent to the new
The Ford Library's construction is being financed
through a private fund-raising campaign. The campaign
will also provide money for a Ford museum in the former

President's hometown of Grand Rapids.
The library, the seventh presidential library in the
nation, is unique in that it will not serve as a museum. War-
ner speculated that this arrangement will "discourage the
trend of placing these- papers in isolated, non-research
oriented environments."
THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES and Records Service will
fund the processing of the papers. Library staff and main-
tenance will also be paid for by that agency.
William Stewart, head of the National Archives' Ford
Papers Project, said that the project and its employees will
be in effect "tenants in perpetuity" at the Ford Library.
According to Stewart, the project's function includes the.
"arrangement, description, and review" of the Ford
materials in order to make them accessible to the scholar
and to the general public. As for "the undergraduate
student who wanted to write a thesis or paper, this collec-

Disabled Diag peddler convicted

TEHRAN, Iran (AP)-Hundreds of
soldiers marched with a million other
Iranians yesterday in a show of support
for an anti-shah revolutionary gover-
nment. But Prime Minister Shahpour
Bakhtiar held his ground, vowing he
will not surrender power to a "mob."
The leader of the "transitional
government" trying to oust Bakhtiar
was quoted as saying that Washington
has "indirectly" expressed a desire to
establish good relations with a future
revolutionary regime.
MARCHES HERE and in other
Iranian cities were generally peaceful
but new political violence flared in two
provincial towns.
In Gorlgan, on theCaspian Sea, nine
persons were reported killed and 26
others wounded when troops opened
fire on anti-Bakhtiar protesters setting
fire to banks, shops and other buildings,
the state radio said.
Opposition spokesman said that in the
town of Koi, near the Turkish border, a
group of mullahs-or Moslem
preachers-was attacked and badly
beaten by a rival faction while en route
to an opposition rally.
State radio said more than one
million people took part in a Tehran
march in support of Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini's designation of a rival
government headed by Moslem
nationalist Mehdi Bazargan.
KHOMEINI, WHO returned to Iran
last week after leading the anti-shah
movement from exile, wants the
Bakhtiargovernment to resign, the
monarchy to be abolished and a

religiously oriented Islamic republic to
be established.
The well-disciplined marchers
recited in unison from slogan sheets,
"Bazargan, Bazargan, you are our
prime minister," and "Bakhtiar
Bakhtiar, you take orders from the

The allegiance of the armed forces is
expected to be the key to a resolution of
Iran's political crisis.
Most commanders are believed loyal
to the Bakhtiar government, which was
appointed by Shah Mohammad Reza
Pahlavi before he left Iran for an in-
definite stay abroad Jan. 16. But some
analysts say the military is unsure of
the loyalty of the lower ranks and
believes it cannot impose its will on
Khomeini's broad-based and powerful
oppositidn movement.
State-run television quoted Bazargan
as saying he was "optimistic" about the
outcome of the crisis. He also said that
"indirectly"- the United States has ex-
pressed a desire to establish friendly
relations with the new regime.

Yvonne Duffy, a severely disabled
Ann Arbor resident, faces up to 90 days
in jail and a $100 fine after being convic
ted in 15th District Court yesterday of
selling imported clothes and sea shells
on the Diag without a permit.
Duffy, 28, was confronted on the Diag
on Sept. 23 by Ann Arbor Police Officer
Deborah Cutsy, and asked to produce a
permit to sell the imported shirts and
shells she had on display. According to
testimony, Officer Cutsy had spoken to
Duffy, a polio victim who is confined to
a wheelchair, the week before about
peddling without a permit.
OFFICER CUTSY testified that she
informed Duffy on that occasion that a

permit was required to peddle items
within Ann Arbor city limits. Cutsy told
the court that she repeated this to her
on September 23, as well as informing
her that peddling on University proper-
ty is against University regulations.
"I never heard of any law requiring a
permit," said Duffy, who graduated
from the University in 1973. "I've seen
people out there (on the Diag) selling
things since I came to Ann Arbor in
1970. All I was frying to do was sup-
plement my income." Duffy said that
she lives on a total of $491 per month in
aid from the state.
When Duffy told Cutsy that she
wouldn't move, the officer called
University Security and officer Thomas

Szabo was dispatched to help convince
Duffy that her actions were against
University regulations.
SZABO TESTIFIED that he informed
Duffy of the code, and that he and Cutsy
offered to supply a University or city
vehicle to move her belongings and
drive her home. Szabo said that she still
wouldn't move and was issued a code
violation by Cutsy and her property was
confiscated. Under cross examination
by defense attorney Paul Berry,
however, Szabo admitted that Duffy
said she wanted to wait for her helper to

assist her in moving..
In her closing statements to the jury
of five men and one woman, Assistant
City Prosecutor Adele Laporte said that
the issue was whether Duffy had been
peddling, and that Szabo and Cutsy
"acted in good faith in trying to be as
accommodating as they could, in view
of Ms. Duffy's disabilities."
The jury deliberated for 40 minutes
before returning a unanimous verdict
of guilty in the case. Judge S.J. Elden
referred the matter to the probation
department, and set March 9 as the
date for sentencing.

Michigras included a homecoming

parade and a carnival, and lasted for
two days. Michigras '78 was the first

Over 5,000 people attended last year's

In a new development in the so-called
"Black English" case, the attorney for
the Ann Arbor School Board - a defen-
dant in the case - filed a motion
yesterday alleging that an amended.
complaint, submitted by lawyers for a
group of 15 black school children, does
not comply with the judge's orders.
The suit charges that the children, all
residents of the Green Road Housing
Project and pupils atthe predominately
white, upper-middle class Martin
Luther King, Jr. Elementary School,
have a "Black English" background
which has hampered their ability to
learn standard English.
ACCORDING TO school board attor-
ney John Weaver, the suit, which U.S.
District Court Judge Charles Joiner or-
dered amended last month, is not ac-

the language problem and that it has
failed to delete the discussion of'
"social, economic, and cultural bias,"
as ordered by Joiner.
According to Weaver, the complaint
also failed to comply with the judge's
order not to' refer to the 15 plaintiffs
because four of the 15 had moved out of
Ann Arbor and no longer are viewed as
relevant to the case. Weaver said that
the complaint does use the word "plain-
tiffs" and therefore ignores Joiner's
WEAVER ASSERTED that the suit,
which was originally filed in July, 1977
and has now been amended twice,
should be dismissed. "After having
three bites of the apple and still failing
to comply, the whole case should be
thrown out," Weaver said.
In response, plaintiff lawyer Gabe
