Only the Shadow knows
Where were you when the lights went out? Someone was behind the
circulation desk at the Undergraduate Library, dipping into the
money drawer. An employee at the UGLI told a University security
officer that $94.60 was taken from the library's front desk drawer at
about 10:30 p.m. The blackout plunged the east Central Campus into
darkness for about 45 minutes until power was restored just before 11
p.m. Apparently the money was heisted while library personnel were
perusing the UGLI stacks with lanterns and flashlights, asking
students to leave. Some books may have also found their way outside
the UGLI's doors without having been properly checked out. "If the
power was out, our exit gate wasn't working, an employee said. "We
have no way of knowing" how many, if any, books were stolen.

Wilbur Cohen is already a name for the history books. In the popular
History 467 yesterday, for example, he was mentioned as the architect
of the original 1934 Social Security Act during the New Deal. And on
Jan. 11, 1969, it became public that the outgoing Secretary of Health,
Education, and Welfare had been offered several important
University posts, including dean of the education school, the job he
took and then held for about a decade. Cohen originally joined the
University faculty in 1956, and is still with the School of Education as a

Judge orders end to steel strike

PITTSBURGH (AP) - A federal
judge ordered yesterday that dissident
steel haulers end a violent nine-week
strike. He threatened to jail the group's
leaders if the order is ignored..
U.S. District Judge Louis Rosenberg
ordered the Pittsburgh-based Frater-
nal Association of Steel Haulers to
notify all of its members within 48 hours
to end the strike, which touched off
hundreds of shootings, stonings and tire
slashings in steel country.
WILLIAM HILL, chairman of the
association, said the decision would be
"As far as we are copcerned, the
strike is still on," he said. The judge

found FASH in contempt of a 1971 in-
junction and also threatened to jail Hill
and FASH Vice President Robert Trent
if the ruling is not obeyed.
Since the strike began Nov. 11, state
police in Pennsylvania alone. have
counted more than 40 incidents of
violence involving truckers. FASH,
however, has denied responsibility for
the violence.
"SUCH A DISCLAIMER is incredible
in the face of the fact that immediately
after the stoppage-strike became effec-
tive, identified FASH represen-
tatives . . . overtly participated in the
manifestations and threats," Rosen-
berg wrote in his 30-page opinion.

U.S. fighters to be
sent to Saudi Arabia

FASH, an organization of indepen-
dent owner-operators, is demanding
recognition as a bargaining agent for
about 30,000 steel haulers. It also wants
streamlined road rules and 'higher
rates, among other things.
About 10,000 steel haulers currently
work under Teamster Union contracts,
which FASH says are inadequate.
FASH has not revealed how many
members it has, although some
trucking industry sources say there are
fewer than 1,000
THE JUDGE'S order stems from a $3
million suit filed by seven steel com-
panies seeking to end the shutdown.
While the strike caused no production
cuts, steel shipments to and from major
mills and smaller companies have been
Bethlehem Steel Corp., the nation's
second largest producer, said it
"believes the decision should result in
prompt termination of FASH's disrup-
tive activities . ..
THIRD-RANKED National Steel
Corp. said it was "pleased with the
Other producers had no immediate
The companies' suit claimed the.
FASH strike violates a 1971 permanent
injunction, which Rosenberg issued on
the grounds that FASH was made up of
independent businessmen. A strike,
therefore, violated anti-trust laws, he

said in the 1971 opinion,
FASH has argued that it is now a
labor organization and that the
previous ruling no longer applies, but
Rosenberg said FASH was "the same
now as it was in 1970. . . Its purposes
remain unchanged, except that -they'
are more ambitious."

WASHINGTON (AP) - At the in-
vitation of Saudi Arabia, several F-15
jets, among the most advanced U.S.
fighters, will soon be sent to the oil-rich
kingdom to demonstrate American
support for Saudi security.
Announcements at the Pentagon and
State Department yesterday did not
relate the "fly-in" to instability in Iran,
the other pillar of U.S. interests in the
Persian. Gulf. But there seemed little
doubt the planes were being sent to
Saudi Arabia against, an Iranian back-
WHILE THE SIZE of the F-15
squadron was not specified, officials
said it would involve 12 of the high-
speed, highly maneuverable fighters,
which are designed to duel the best jets
the Soviet Union has produced. The F-
15 squadrons usually comprise about 24
Saudi pilots and technicians will be
given "orientations" on the ground and
in flight on the plane's capabilities. In
1982, Saudi Arabia is scheduled to

receive the first of 60 F-15s that
President Carter authorized for sale
last spring.
Hodding Carter, the State Depar-
tment spokesman, said the F-15s will be
sent to Riyadh within a few days and
will be moved around Saudi bases.
However, he said, the planes would
remain in the country for "a relatively
short period."
SPOKESMAN Carter said he was
confident that Congress had been con-
sulted and Israel notified of the U.S.
The decision to sell jets to Saudi
Arabia survived the Senate by a 54-44
vote last May, partly because the ad-
ministration packaged them with
similar but less controversial warplane
sales to Egypt and Israel.
The U.S.. announcement yesterday
said "the visit is a demonstration of the
continuing close relationship between
Saudi Arabia and the United States and
of our interest in the security of the

Back together again
Only three weeks ago Greta Rideout was in court testifying that her
husband John had beaten and raped her while they were married and
sharing the same abode. Today, all is settled and the couple is living
together once again. The young Salem, Oregon pair became the
center of national attention when Greta last month charged her
husband with forcing her to have sex. John, who denied the charges,
eventually was found innocent. According to Greta's attorney, the
couple reconciled yesterday while discussing the fate of their 2-year-
old daughter.

Keeping Posted
Katharine Graham stepped aside yesterday as publisher, of the
Washington Post. She will be succeeded by her 33-year-old son Donald,
who has served as executive vice-president and general manager of
the Post since 1976. One Daily staffer who worked as an intern at the
Post last summer described Donald Graham as being a friendly and
approachable person. "He acted like he was a big kid reporter. He was
always smiling and everyone called him Donny," said the staffer.
"Once I wrote a story and he put a personal note with a smiling face on
it in my mail box, complimenting me on the story." But even though
son Donny will now be in charge, the 61-year-old Katherine Graham,
who has been publisher of the paper for ten years, will retain her
positions as board chairman and chief executive officer of the
Washington Post Co.
