Suspected arson in the Greek belt
A fire in the rubbish container outside the Alpha Gamma Delta
sorority at 1332 Hill Street Saturday night was the -fifth fire in three
months to strike the Greek house. The fires usually occur during social
events, according to a house director. The AGD fire was one of four
fires in the Greek belt early Saturday morning, said an Ann Arbor Fire
Department spokesman. One blaze was set near "the rock" at Hill
Street and Washtenaw Ave. The fire department spokesman said of-
ficials believe the arsonist is a student, because witnesses saw
someone wearing a "Michigan jacket?' near the scenes of previous

The Martha Cook residence hall Board of Governors has repealed
its decision of a few weeks ago to restrict the hours men would be
allowed in the building. Currently men are allowed upstairs during
specified hours on Thursday through Saturday evenings, and on a 24-
hour basis on the first and basement floors. But earlier this month, the
board. members agreed to extend male visitation hours to include
Monday through Wednesday from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. To the dismay and
confusion of the 150 Martha Cook residents, the board also decided that
males would be evicted from all floors by a security guard after
visitation hours. Now the board has reconsidered, and decided to im-
plement the new hours on a trial basis in September. President of the
residents' House Board Debra Magolan said the board had not been
aware that Martha Cook residents were discontented over the new
rules. "They (board members) had not made the decision with the in-
tent of taking something away. They were just interested insecurity,"

When those economics exams come back with nasty grades after
desperate, all-night cramming sessions, keep in mind the thoughts of
1977 University graduate Martha Niemann. Niemann, who currently
is Administrative Assistant for the Insurance Economics Society of
America (IESA), extolled in a recent IESA newsletter the virtues of
economics courses and condemned the University for not requiring
such classes for undergraduates. "I considered it a dry, lifeless sub-
ject. . . Heck, the big 'U' itself didn't label it a must. . . So beware,
those of you, who have attempted -to ,hide the economic facts of
life.. . We shall learn those facts, even as our universities have lear-
ned them . . . but have fallen short in teaching them. Hail
Plato... 'Everything is economic'." But what kind of grade did Plato
get on his Econ 201 final?.
With the Mideast peace accords signed yesterday, it may be hard
to imagine that only ten years ago Egyptian President Gamal Abdel
Nasser accused the Nixon Administration of giving unwavering sup-
port to Israel, indicating that the Middle East was nearing the ex-
plosion point. "There is no indication of any change in America's at-
titude towards Israel," Nasser said on March 27, 1969. "The United
States continues to give its complete support and backing to the Israeli

More than 150 members of the four major ethnic groups (Asian-
American, blacks, Hispanics, and Native-Americans) gathered yester-
day at Rackham for the University's first conference on "Families,
Women, and Mental Health: The Minority Experience." The conference,
sponsored by the Center for the Continuing Education of Women and
other organizations, included guest lecturers speaking on such topics as
"Cultural Forms and Changing Norms among Latino Women and Men,"
and panel discussions on such topics as "Mental Health Intervention with
the Minority Person." Although designed for minorities, many whites
also attended the conference, which coordinator Beverly Howze called,
"A first step toward working together."

NAIROBI, Kenya - Ugandan
President Idi Amin claimed he was
besieged by 20,000 Tanzanian troops
and 12 tanks at his Entebbe residence
yesterday. He said God-fearing men
such as himself should expect these
problems, and he vowed to fight his way
out with a handful of help.
Meanwhile, British Broadcasting
Corporation (BBC) report yesterday
suggested that Amin might already
have fled his embattled country.
THE PRODUCER of a BBC radio
news program,"The World at One,"
said one of its reporters was speaking
on the telephone with an official of
Radio Uganda in Kampala this mor-
ning when an unidentified woman in-
terrupted to say the president had left
Uganda three days ago.
Apparently speaking from an exten-
sion, she said she had intercepted such
a message from the Ugandan forces'
command post at Entebbe.
The woman, who refused to give her
name, had a good command of English
and could have been a reporter or
producer, the BBC producer said.
UGANDAN EXILES claimed the
tanks belonged to mutinous Ugandan
soldiers, but there was no other in-
dication that any such siege was taking
place. Residents of Entebbe, 20 miles
north of the capital of Kampala, repor-
ted no tanks, no troops and no fighting.
They said the road to Kampala was
The airport control tower said all was
quiet and Tanzanian military officials
said their invasion forces were still 20
miles from Entebbe. But Amin said he
could see 12 tanks from his window.
"I'm looking forward to having
breakfast with the enemy," said Amin
through an aide who telephoned repor-
ters in Nairobi. Uganda government
radio, monitored in Nairobi, carried a
similar report after Amin personally
telephoned the newsroom.
THE RADIO quoted Amin as saying,
"A brave and strong man who believes
in God and discipline will always find
this kind of problem. I will show how
only 20 men can fight against 20,000 in-
The size of the invading force of Tan-
zanian soldiers and Ugandan exiles has
been put by independent observers at
about 7,000. Amin has put it as high as
In Nairobi, observers said the flam-
boyant Amin falsely reported a major
Tanzanian advance once before, then
claimed his troops had driven it back.

Amin said the tanks arrived during the
night and cut off Entebbe from Kam-
Amin ordered the airport closed to
foreign flights Sunday and said planes
violating Ugandan air space would be
shot down. An employee reached by
telephone at the control tower said all
was quiet yesterday. "Nothing is wrong
here. No shooting. No tanks. We are
OK," he said.
Tanzanian sources with direct access
to military planners in Dar es Salaam
said Tanzanian units were still at
Mpigi, a village about two miles from
both Entebbe and Kampala.
THIS IS said to be the deepest advan-
ce of the Tanzanians in the five-month-
old war. Fighting began in October
when Ugandan soldiers occupied 720
square miles of northwestern Tanzania.
Ugandan exiles said the tanks
allegedly surrounding Amin belonged
to mutinous Ugandan soldiers who were
trying to overthrow Amin in the name
of Brig. Emilio Mondo, No. 2 in the
Ugandan Defense Ministry, and make
peace with the Tanzanians.
However, a spokesman for Amin
described Mondo as completely loyal.
