What will historians have to say
about the goings-on in Ann Arbor
during the last decade? Within a
generation the libraries will stock both
the seminal and revisionist books, the
conservative together with the radical
viewpoints of the protests and the

historians Bret Eynon and Ellen Fish-
man, who as co-directors of the
Progressive Research and Education
Project, have recorded over 100 inter-
views with those involved in the Ann
Arbor movement.
Eynon recently was able to inspire
former activists John and Leni Sinclair
to donate their entire collection of keep-
sakes and radical literature to the

University's Bentley Library, whose
directors seem eager for sixties
Eynon is convinced that Ann Arbor
played a major role in the sixties ac-
tivist movement. "Ann Arbor was one
of the absolutely key places in the six-
ties," said Eynon. "If you have to name
three places it would probably be
Columbia, here, and Berkeley. And in
terms of an intellectual center, Ann Ar-
bor was probably the most impor-
tant-the sixties was an historical
event, a turning point in world history
was reached," Eynon said.
Eynon andFishman expect to finish a
booklet about the radical student
movement in Ann Arbor this fall. When
completed, the booklet may be the first
to deal specifically with Ann Arbor
events during the period. Eynon, who
expects the book to run between 75 and
100 pages, said he thinks it will be used
as an introductory text for future cour-
ses concerning the movement.

An effort to preserve information on
past and present radical movements,
both within Ann Arbor and nationwide,
will begin tomorrow, with the opening
of a radical library at Guild House.
The library, in a campus ministry
located at 802 Monroe St., is the result
of a drive by the People's Action
Coalition (PAC) of Literary College
Student Government (LSA-SG) to
collect and centralize information on

"WE CAN TELL students where to go
to find out what issues are hot on cam-
pus, and where to get involved in those
particular groups," said Heidi Got-
tfr.dxlAeader of PAC.
Gottfried also talked about the
significance of the library as both a
research tool and a meeting place.

"The use of the library is to inter-link
groups together,-so people know that
these are not isolated from each other,
but are very much inter-related." She
also mentioned that it is convenient to
have a location that groups can identify
as a central location to find out about
activist groups from other areas.
Gottfried believes that the institution
of the library is a very big part of what
she considers to be a resurgence of
student activism.
"IN THE 70'S there was a movement
for organizations to form broad base
coalitions," she said. "Part of this is
letting the groups on campus know who
each other are. An important part of the
seventies movement has been more
coalition building. The library can ser-
ve a purpose of letting the groups know
who each other are, and working
together on different issues."

A high-level U.S. delegation opened a
Mideast tour yesterday to try to cool
Arab tempers over the American-
inspired Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty,
but an angry Syria said the only way to
deal with the challenge might be war.
"There is no other choice. . . but the
armed choice," the official Syrian
newspaper Tishrin declared.
THE U.S. team, including National
Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski
and President Carter's son Chip,
arrived in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia,
yesterday to try to win the backing of
King Khaled, or at least to mute Saudi
criticism of the Egypt-Israel pact and
head off Saudi economic retaliation
against Egypt.
There was no immediate word on the
outcome of the meeting.
Damascus radio claimed, however,
that the Saudis last week threatened to
cut off $1 billion in annual economic aid
to Egypt if -President Anwar Sadat
signs the separate peace with Israel.
AN EGYPTIAN Foreign Ministry
spokesman in Cairo denied that report.
There was no official Saudi comment.
In a Newsweek magazine interview
yesterday, however, Saudi Crown Prin-
ce Fahd indicated his country would not
cut off aid to Cairo, saying Saudi Arabia
is "deeply concerned about the welfare
of all Arab countries and this will con-
tinue to be the case in the future."
In related developments yesterday:
" In the Old City of Jerusalem, Arabs
and Jews clashed violently when a
group of religious Jewish students tried
to force their way onto the Holy Temple
Mount, which is holy to Moslems and
Jews. No serious injuries were repor-
ted. Four Arabs and five Jews were
arrested. Authorities discourage Jews
from entering the site because of
possible confrontations with Moslems;
* In Jordan, Palestinian leader
Yasser Arafat, who told a Beirut
magazine "the whole Middle East will
explode if Sadat signs the pact," met,

with King Hussein of Jordan. It was
only Arafat's second trip to Jordan sin-
ce Hussein expelled Palestinian
guerrillas from his country in 1970. In a
surprisingly mild joint statement
issued after the meeting, both said they
would resist "all attempts to liquidate
the legitimate rights of Palestinians."
" Egyptian Defense Minister Kamal
Hasan Ali departed for Washington to
join Israeli Defense Minister Ezer
Weizman in ironing out details of the
military addendum to the peace treaty,
including a timetable for withdrawal of
Israeli forces from the Sinai Peninsula.
The Syrian newspaper editorial said
Egypt "has been isolated from the Arab
world ... Washington wants to drag
Jordan, Syria and Iraq to follow behind
the Egyptian president, and if not, to
force them to do so by means of an
Israeli aggression."
Brzezinski was scheduled to visit
Amman, Jordan, today, where he will
try to persuade Hussein to reconsider
his opposition to the treaty and to agree
to participate in setting up Palestinian
self-rule in the West Bank and Gaza
Strip under terms of the U.S.-sponsored

to negotiate
At a special meeting this afternoon,
members of the American Federation
of State, County, and Municipal Em-
ployees (AFSCME) Local 1583 will be
asked by the union leadership to extend
the terms of their present contract,
slated to expire Tuesday.
The union, which represents over
2,100 campus service personnel, has
been negotiating a new contract with
the University bargaining team for six
weeks. Full agreement on these new
terms has not been reached, but union
'bargaining Chairman Art Anderson
said the talks are "going very smoothly
up to this point."
ANDERSON AND Union President
Dwight Newman will present a recom-
mendation today to the local member-
ship asking for approval of an extension
of the contract. According to Anderson,
"We have a responsible membership,
and I'm very optimistic they'll follow
our recommendation" to extend the
terms of the present agreement.
The union leaders will also be giving
a full report on the union's present
bargaining situation with the Univer-
sity, Anderson said. He declined com-
menting on that situation until he could
first present it to the union.

Male visitors to the Martha Cook
Building will be evicted by University
security guards next September if
found on the premises after visitation
hours without permission, according to
a ruling earlier this month by the Board
of Governors of the women's residence
The hall's current visitation policy
dictates men may only occupy the
womens' bedrooms during specified
hours, but that they can visit on the
main and basement floors of the
building 24 hours a day. The Board of
Governors extended the upper floor
visitation hours for September at the
request of the hall's residents, but, to
the students' surprise, at the same time
reduced the number of hours men will
be allowed on the main floors.
ONE RESIDENT, who asked not to
be identified for fear she would be
"kicked out" of the dorm, said "if this
goes through, next year will be a farce.
People are just panicking. There is
nothing we can do. Their (the gover-
nors') next meeting isn't for a month,
and people will be too scared not to sign
The Board of Governors had agreed

to a trial extension of male visitation
hours on Monday, Tuesday, and Wed-
nesday evenings from 7 to 11 p.m. This
is in addition to the established hours:
Thursday from 7 to 11 p.m., Friday
from 12 to 1 a.m., Saturday from 12 to
1:30 a.m., and Sunday from 12 to 12
a.m. During these periods men are
allowed anywhere in the building, in-
cluding the upper floors, if escorted by
a resident.
"They gave us what we wanted, but
at the same time cut out our basement
and first floor privileges," complained
the anonymous resident. One reason
Board members offered for their
decision is security. Chairwoman Ann
Cook, great niece of the hall's founder,
William Cook, said there have been
'unescorted men in the building" and
cited several incidents in which the hall
has been broken into and property
THE 60-YEAR-OLD Martha Cook
Building, which houses 153 women, is
currently the only University residence
hall that does not have unrestricted
visitation hours. The dormitory is
known around campus for its beautiful
architecture, established rituals, and
special services - such as complemen-

tary linen and sit-down dinners - as
well as its nickname "the virgin vault."
One resident representing the studen-
ts' House Board has written a letter to
the governors asking for clarification of
the new rule. The students wanted to
know whether the term "male" in-
cludes building employees, security
guards, and relatives, as well as dates
and male friends. Another point of con-
fusion is an amendment that was added
to the ruling earlier this month stating
that special permission may be granted
by the building director to allow males
into the dormitory "for particular oc-

resident, the students hope to "inform

in St. Pat's
Irish eyes were smiling on campus
yesterday, as exuberant celebrants
took to the wearing of the green and
participated in other St. Patrick's Day
A group of about 30 students marchedj
in the first annual St. Patrick's Day
parade. This event, which consisted of a
spirited promenade down E. Univer-
sity, S. University, and State Streets,
ended up with an Irish expression of
song on the Diag.

day, "the idea to have a parade came to
me two or three months ago." Mc-
Doogle explained that "I come from
Cleveland, and we always have St.
Patrick's parades there."
The parade-goers, who carried
several green, white, and orange flags,
formed a circle on the Diag and belted
out Irish classics, including the ever-
popular "A Pub With No Beer." The
singers were holding Xeroxed copies of
"The Guinness Book of Irish Ballads,"'
although most appeared to have little
trouble remembering the words.
