Pine Knob needle
During the disruptions at Friday's aborted Regents meeting, one
protester got in a well-intentioned barb at Regent Robert Nederlander
(D-Detroit), the owner of the Pine Knob concert center in Clarkston.
Nederlander was trying to make a point about why the Regents should
postponenany decision on blanket divestiture, whenrthe divestiture
proponent shouted out: "Watch it, Nederlander! . .. Or we won't go to
Pine Knob this summer !" Even the Regents laughed at that one.
Stars are born
A crumpled, black-clad figure laying yesterday afternoon in front
of the wheels of a parked car on Ann St. near Division drew more than
one double take from passers-by. Actually, the scene was a movie in
the making. Several students in the Film Video 236 class are directing,
producing, and acting in a 15- to 20-minute play they call The Door.
The students are producing the film through the Public Media Center,
with borrowed equipment and no outside funding. The movie deals
with a reincarnation and a man searching for the meaning of his
recurring dream. The crew agreed that it hopes to finish the film by
the end of this term, and perhaps to show it in film festivals.
Take ten
The Advisory Committee on Recreation, Intramurals and Club
Sports on the evening of March 18, 1969 cleared the way for what would
become the Central Campus Recreational Building and the North
Campus Recreational Building by proposing that Regents and ad-
ministration's Plant Extension Committee okay the construction of
the two new facilities at around $7 millionleach. The major source of
the funding would be student fees. "This program (construction of the
two facilities) would place Michigan equal or above any other univer-
sity in the Big Ten," said the director of intramurals.

UGANDAN FORCES DEFEND CAPITOL

Holding
NAIROBI, Kena (AP)-Ugandan
troops for the first time stood and
fought an invasion force of Tanzanians
and Ugandan exiles, resulting in hun-
dreds of deaths in the heaviest fighting
of the war, reports from East Africa
capitals said yesterday.
Tanzanian officals said Ugandan
President Idi Amin took the war back
into Tanzania yesterday as Ugandan
warplanes struck the town of Kyaka, 20
miles inside Tanzania.tThe Tanzanians
said only one Tanzanian was wounded
and three ugandan planes were shot
down.

firm ag
THE WAS BEGAN last October when
Amin's forces invaded Tanzania and
drove as deep as Kyaka before with-
drawing back across the border.
Uganda radio, monitored in Nairobi,
made no mention of the air raid on
Kyaka, but claimed its troops had killed
almost 1,000 Tanzanian soldiers and
Ugandan rebels in a single battle last
Tuesday and Wednesday.
It said 500 others weredwounded and
Ugandan forces captured three tanks.
and some heavy artillery.

Tanzania

THE UGANDA

Nationalist

Organization, describing itself as an
umbrella-group representing several
exile groups fighting Amin's regime,
claimed 300 Libyans and Palestinians
fighting for the Ugandan president
were killed, apparently in the same
clash. Amin has said Palestinians are
fighting for him, but Libya has denied
reports that it sent soldiers to help
Amin, a longtime ally.
The reports from the two sides in-
dicated the big battle had been fought
near Lukaya, about 50 miles south of
the Ugandan capital of Kampala.
"We believe there were as many as
2,000 Ugandans at Lukaya," said an in-
dependent analyst in the Tanzanian
capital of Dar Es Salaam. "It was the
first time they (Ugandans) fought.
Before, there would be a little artillery
fire and they would flee.
"NOW IT SEEMS that the rest of the
road to Kampala is going to be a
question of inch-by-inch, and you can
expect more heavy fighting." He asked
not to be identified.
Some exile accounts also said 800
Ugandan soldiers had been ambushed
and encircled as they approached the

front lines.
Knowledgeable observers* in Dar Es
Salaam said it was not clear who won
the battle, but "no territory was given,
up."
DAILY SUPPLY flights from Arab
states which support Amin, a converted
Moslem, apparently have buoyed
Amin's once-demoralized forces, ob-r
servers said.
Uganda radio, reflecting new con-
fidence, warned foreign reporters
stationed in East Africa "not to be
carried away by a desire to see Uganda
lose and thus allow personal feelings to
color reports."
Western reporters have been barred
from Uganda in recent year.
Some Eastern diplomats, meanwhile,
still predicted the imminent defeat of
Uganda's flamboyant but much-hated
president. They concede, however, that
Amin's fortunes have improved
remarkably with the infusion of Arab
aid. Just two weeks ago, some exiles
and diplomats say, no relaible Ugandan
force barred the road to Kampala. Only
fuel and equipment shortages were
holding back the invaders.
