NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - Ugandan
President Idi Amin announced yester-
day that Palestinian soldiers were
fighting alongside Ugandan troops in
the battle to drive out Tanzanian in-

broadcast monitored in Nairobi, also

There has been no independent con-

AMIN PUT THE number of invaders
at 40,000, double his previous estimate.
Most independent observers believe the

figure is far lower, perhaps no more
than 8,000 Tanzanians and anti-Amin
Ugandan exiles. Amin is believed to
have about an equal number of defen-
ders around Kampala, the Ugandan
The radio reported Amin's speech
was made at the opening of a conferen-
ce of the 34-nation Islamic Develop-
ment Bank in Kampala.
"No matter what the sacrifice, the
armed forces are determined to crush
the aggressors," Amin said. He
described the enemy occupying part of
southern Uganda as "agents of im-
perialism, racism and Zionists."
DIPLOMATIC sources estimate the
Libyans at 1,400 men and the

Palestinians were believed to number
in the hundreds.
Neutral sources in East Africa with
access to top-level intelligence reports
said Amin appears increasingly
capable of carrying out his boast that
he'll win the four-month-old war that
started when he invaded and tried to
annex part of northwestern Tanzania.
The sources said Amin's augmented
military strength could make itself felt
within a few weeks, although in-
telligence reports say that for now, the
Taiizanians are advancing slowly on
Kampala from the south.
By most accounts, they are between
30 and 75 miles from Kampala.
"UGANDAN ARMED forces and

Palestinian forces are fighting side by
side on the front line and are acquiring
good experience in fighting against
Israeli soldiers and mercenaries;"
Amin told the tankers.
"Tanzanian forces alone could not in-
vade Uganda without Zionists and mer-

enemies as "enemies of Islam and

people and even raping Catholic nuns.

"I was asked to resign, and chose
to terminate my employment
because I felt I hadn't done anything
wrong," Pollack said. She men-
tioned a document, which she wrote,

with PEER, including working with
the Department of Health,
Education, and Welfare (HEW) on
investigation of Title IX complaints.
"We found that it wasn't a case of
not enough staff working on Title IX
complaints," Geise said. She noted
that one HEW investigator had nine
Title IX cases in one year, and
suggested that this type of in-
vestigation may be responsible for
the heavy backlog of uninvestigated
HEW complaints.
"We work with local school
districts trying to improve con-
ditions for our children." Geise said.
She showed the audience PEER's kit
on Title IX, which is called "Crack-

ing the Glass Slipper: PEER's
Guide to Ending Sex Bias in Your
Schools," and suggested that the use
of this could "enable one or two
people to do an investigation of Title
IX compliance in a school."
"We want people to know who they
should talk to and what kind of
questions they should ask to see if
Title IX is being enforced in their
school," Geise said. She added that
"PEER is working as fast as
possible, organizing at a local level,
doing workshops and talking about
how to organize at your school."
"We could do more if we had more
staff and more energy," Geise said.
"The response to our efforts has
been positive, and it's encouraging
to find people who want to support,
