Arab nations to impose
economic boycott on Egypt
(Continued from Page 1)

The amount of Arab aid has never been
made public, but it is thought to total
about $2 billion annually.
" Recall all ambassadors from Cairo
immediately and cut all political and
diplomatic ties within a recommended
period of one month.
" Suspend Egypt's membership in
the Arab' League and transfer the
organization's headquarters sfrom
Cairo to the Tunisian capital of Tunis,

"until appropriate political conditions
Anticipating a hardline victory,
Sadat had ended air service to. the
capitals of Syria, Jordan, and Iraq and
had suspended Egypt's membership in
the League.
It is believed the loss of Arab funds
probably will be made up by new aid
from the United States and other
Western nations.

Ninety-six University students pitted
timing, wits, and intelligence against
one another at yesterday afternoon's
Michigan College Bowl in the Michigan
Union Ballroom.
The students were members of 24
anxious teams, who played the
question-and-answer by responding to
questions such as, "Quote the rhyming
aphorism which states that
precipitation with abrupt terminations
tends to induce plants esteemed for
their blossoms." Answer: April
showers bring May flowers.
Programming Committee (UPC) of the
University Activities Committee
(UAC), and the Michigan Student
Assembly (MSA), the College Bowl is
part of the College Bowl Co., Inc.,
through the Association of College
Unions International (ACUI).
College students compete annually

for the chance to go to the regional
competition, which includes players
from Ontario and Ohio, as well as
Michigan. From there, the winning
team goes to the nationals, and, if it's
lucky, to London, England for an inter-
national contest. This is the first time
University students have competed in
the College Bowl, because no one has
ever bothered to organize it, according
to Jeff Lebow.
Winning teams at the college level
receive a $200 team scholarship.
The winner of this year's contest at
the University won't go to the nationals,
because it's too late to enter, according
to Lebow. But he said the contest will
run again in September, and in
January, 1980, a University team will
compete in the regionals.
"THE IDEA," explained Lebow, "is
to get people familiar with this contest
so we can ship someone to the regionals
next year. Last year, Michigan State

owl teams compete

won $20,000 worth of scholarships."
Team members at yesterday's con-
test included dorm residents, fraternity
members, and members of other cam-
pus organizations, such as the Univer-
sity Skydiving Club] and American In-
stitute of Industrial Engineers.
"WHAT IS THE answer is wrong,
what are the challenging procedures?"
asked a contestant.
"The answers aren't wrong. All
questions are authenticated by
Reader's Digest," Lebow responded.
In the finalround, the Independen-
ts-Chen's Men defeated the LSA B-
team, the Invervarsity Christian
Fellowship, and 515 House to capture
the honors yesterday.
"We feel great. It's indescribable,"
said Independents-Chen's Men mem-
ber Avery Katz.

Gases may become explosive

(Continued from Page 1)
But Ingram said the oxygen was
thought to be slowly increasing toward
a mixture that could eventually explode
the head off the reactor and further
damage its radioactive fuel.
Ingram said the technicians were
concerned with this slowly growing
problem, but that it might not reach a
critical stage for several days.
He said he expected no decision on
the dilemma last night or today.
EDSON CASE, deputy director of the
NRC's office of nuclear reactor
regulation, said three methods were
under consideration for removing the
bubble, all of them risky.

One way might be to reduce the 980-
pounds-per-square-inch pressure in the
reactor, deliberately allowing the bub-
ble to expand to the point where the gas
could be drawn out through the reac-
tor's cooling-water pipes. .
The risk, however, was that a
miscalculation could expand the bubble
too much, exposing the tops of the
nuclear fuel rods and causing
ANOTHER possibility, Case said,
might be to blow the reactor's cooling-
water and the'bubble out by a sudden
release of pressure, followed instantly
by injections of new cooling water, a
procedure that would risk damaging-

the fuel by its violent pressure changes.
A third possibility, he said, might be
to continue circulating the cooling
water normally, and letting it slowly
sweep away the gas bubble, bit by bit,
as it apparently has already done to a
small extent.
But that process, Ingransaid, could
take too long and would risk allowing
the bubble to become explosive before
it could be removed.
Aiding in that decision, Ingram said,
was the Energy Department's Loss-of-
Fluid Test Facility in Idaho, which was
testing the feasibility of the first option,
the deliberate pressure reduction and

explains, adding that the time he can
take off from his job in order to cam-
paign is scarce.
In their last-ditch campaign efforts,
GOP party members are holding an
open house in the Georgetwon sub-
divison through the weekend, while
Belcher, who began going door-to-door
regularly only a few weeks ago, is
making the final rounds in the Fourth
and Fifth Wards. Belcher said he has
been spending his weekends, and a
couple of evenings each week, soliciting
voter support on foot.
While not at City Hall, Belcher serves
as a management consultant for the
FirstAnn Arbor Corporation, is coil-
fident of a victory. Indeed, he has name
recognition-though that recognition is
only logical, since he's campaigning
among the citizens who voted him intb
office only last year.s
Belcher claims he is unafraid of the
student vote, which he does not expect
to be overwhelming. He 'said he feels

his party's political ideology than they

about adoCen regular student workers
who have been actively publicizing his
liberal cause among their peers, the
Democrats are hoping that perhaps an
extra few hundred votes from the
University quarter will sway the elec-
tion in their favor.
While many observers say the former
Fourth Ward councilman has "cleaned
up his act" for the campaign, can-
vassing often in a jacket and tie, and
belying his former "rumpled" image,
Kenworthy still has the aura of a
student about him as he piles his
bicycle baskets highwith campaign

Independents face uphill battle

(Continued from Page 1>
same goals," he said. "Our focus would
be coordinating efforts, pooling resour-
ces, and working for greater
cooperation (among student groups)."
Nathanson and Michaelson have
proposed regular meetings with the
leaders of student groups to achieve
this end.
ANOTHER PAIR of independent
presidential and vice-presidential can-
didates is Mike Spirank and Terry
Drent. Spirnak, a sophomore in LSA
said that the reason he's running as an
independent is to get away from the
dominance and politicking of big par-
"MSA can be more effective without

big party dominance," Drent said. "We
will be unbiased, and won't com-
promise our position."
"It means I'm not linked with a party
or interest groups," Spirnak said. "I'll
act in the best interest of the students,
not a party or political idea."
Spirnak and Drent, who are also run-
ning for LSA seasts, advocate a lobbyist
in Lansing for MSA, reform of the
tenure process, and a working relation-
ship with the city government,
especially on housing matters.
ANOTHER SMALL party, running
two candidates for LSA representatives
is Students for Academic and In-
stitutional Development (SAID).

Michael Froy and Rob Tubb are can-
didates on this new party ticket. They
said they would like to see MSA deal
primarily with education and other
University issues.
Our Party Really Includes Concerned
Knowledgeable Students (Our
P.R.I.C.K.S.) is the new party for long-
time MSA politician Irving Freenan
and his running mate Dough Steinberg,
formerly of the Bullshit Party.
Other independent candidates run-
ning for positions as MSA represen-
tatives are: A. Patrick Alcarez, Kathi
Machle, Joan Nelson-Law; Joshua,
