'U1' Turns

Diag rally supports Mideast minorities

Classical jones
They say musicians are slightly wacky, and anyone who has
attended a meeting of the Bach Club perhaps would agree.
The Bach club is a collection of classical music lovers who
meet each Thursday evening at 8 to listen to the works' of Beet-
hoven, Handel, Dvoiak and other favorites in the Greene Lounge
of East Quad. The performers are mostly Music School stu-
dents but, as the Bach Club posters say, everyone is welcome, and
no musical knowlege is required.
The Bach Club was founded in the summer of 1968 by a
University graduate student, Randy Smith, and about half a
dozen other student music lovers, according to one of the found-
ers who perfers to be called George.
"We decided on the necessity of helping to satisfy the basic
requirements of life - food, sex and classical music," s a y s
George. "So we formed a club for listening to and performing
kclassical music, and for-socializing afterward.
"Several wide-eyed freshmen, eager to help, inflicted upon
themselves the xwork of advertising the Bach Club," George
continues. "We also made just about everyone who came to a
'meeting an officer, to help with the work."
As Bach Club attendance dwindled during the fall of. '68, "the
jelly donut was added as an incentive," resulting in more stu-
dents coming to club meetings, says George.
He adds that also at about this time, "the benevolence (money)
of the founders ran out, and we started charing 35 cents a per-
son to pay for food and publicity."
Bach Club attenders now pay SO cents each meeting. The
performers play and sing for free, says present program director
b Halk.
Halk says he finds performers by "going to the Music School
and asking students there to come and perform whatever they
want" at the Bach Club meetings. Last week featured the music
of PDQ Bach, along with a piano-violin-cello trio by Dvorjak. On
tonight's program are works by Bach and Viotti for violin and
cello and a woodwind quintet.
Plus, of course, cider and jelly donuts.

About 80 students rallied on
the Diag. yesterday in support
of the Jews of Syria and Iraq
and the Kurds of Iraq.
The Committee For Oppress-
ed Minorities Under Arab Rule
(CFOMUAR), a mainly Jewish
student group, stressed what it
called "another side to the Mid-
dle East story."
UNIVERSITY Prof. A s a d
Khailing, an immigrant from
Kurdistan said, "We are in re-
volt against the Arab rulers in
Iraq, not against the Arab peo-
ple. Imagine - 200,000 people
trapped. We need help."
The Kurdsrare currently at
war with Iraq. According to
CFOMUAR 200,000 Kurds are
trapped and face extermination
by the Iraqis.
The CFOMUAR resolved the
following action be taken:
-That the government of Iraq
cease its program of genocide
against the Kurdish people.
-That Iran and Turkey main-
tain open borders to the Kur-
dish refugees.
-That Iraq and Syria stop
persecuting their Jewish minor-

ities and allow the free emigra-
tion of these people.
-That blacks of the Sudan'
be freed from government op-
They also suggested a series
of measures to open the area
up to the world press and
United Nations.
Marvin Weinberger, spokes-
man for CFOMUAR added, "We
understand t h a t government
policies must change. But we
are aware of suffering peoples
in the Middle East and we feel
this to be a new approach, a

new paradigm."1
ORIGINALLY Solidarity Day
was planned to focus only upon
the Jews of Syria and Iraq.
However three w e e k s ago
CFOMUAR changed the pro-
gram to include the Kurds and
other non-Jewish minorities.
Sandy Levin, spokesman for
the CFOMUAR u n t i 1 three
weeks ago stated that he had
intended the program to focus
only upon the problems of the
Jews in such countries as Syria,
Iraq and the Soviet Union.

"You-have to look at the news
media," said Levin. "The Jews
are viewed as a group of usurp-
ers of Palestine, homeland of
the Palestinians. But they ig-
nore these things-in the case
of the Kurds, there is no Amer-
ican support, because nobody
knows about it."
Levin added that he felt that
there have been injustices on
both sides and "the world must
see these examples, of the Arab
governments at work." But he
asserted, "This is not neces-
sarily a Zionist rally."

Govt. yields at Phan Rang

SAIGON, South Vietnam (P)-
South Vietnamese government
forces gave ground yesterday at
embattled Xuan Loc and pulled
out of one of the last two coastal
enclaves they were holdIing
northeast of Saigon.

sure of tank-led attacks by three

PHAN RANG, 160 miles north-
east of Saigon, had been iso-
lated for some time and con-
sidered shaky, while the fight-
ing in the Xuan Loc area was
being watched keenly for signs
of a possible thrust against
Saigon itself.
Field reports said Xuan Loc,
a provincial capital 40 miles
east of Saigon, was holding, but
South Vietnamese troops had
made their first retreat from
areas near the town after a
week of savage fighting.
Government forces were said
to have pulled back from a dis-
trict town 10 miles northwest of
Xuan Loc, while other Saigont
units were driven from a key
position seven miles to the west
on the highway leading to
WHILE THE Xuan Loc re-
gion is not considered one of
the traditional invasion routes
toward Saigon, the action there
is regarded as highly signifi-
cant as an indicator of what
effort will be made by govern-
ment troops to hold the lines
near the capital.

The continuing fighting aroundj
Xuan Loc follows a Communist-
led offensive that has taken
three-fourths of the country
from control of the Saigon gov-
ernment. Much of the territory
in the northern and central
areas was abandoned without a
fight. Phan Rang was the 18th
province capital lost by Saigon
since the Communist-led ad-
vance began in early March
and the first given up since{
April 1.j
The Defense Ministry com-
munique announcing the pull-
back from Phan Rang said the
decision was made after top-
level military commanders went,

tween us and the enemy, the

dered a temporary redeplay-
ment to the south of the city
to form a new defense line."

A four bill tenants right's
package, was introduced to
the State Legislature Monday
The bills, sponsored by rep-
resentative Perry Bullard (D-
Ann Arbor) would provide for
collective bargaining, prohibit
unannounced entry by land-
lords, require a five per cent
interest be paid on damage de-
posits and prohibit lockouts and
property seizures by landlords.
"THESE BILLS are urgently
needed to provide protection to
renters from questionable land-
lord practices," Bullard said.
If the majority of the tenants
of one landlbrd have any com-
plaints about a condition of ten-
ancy, including rental rates, the
bargaining bill would create
and protect their right to or-
ganize and engage in legal ne-
gotiations with the landlord.
If the landlord refuses to ne-
gotiate with this group or "does
not bargain in good faith", the
renters may begin a rent strike
by paying their rent into an es-
crow account.
of the Tenants Union (TU) said
this was the strategy of the 1969-
70 renters strike in the city, but
they were unable to coerce the
landlords to meet with them

at that time.
Cooperman said the TU is or-
ganizing area renters into lo-
cals by geography and landlord
for the purpose of working to-
gether in the struggle with the
landlords. Locals were in ex-
istence in 1969, he added,but
have since dissolved.
Another bill would require
landlords to give tenants five
per cent interest on security
deposits held during the dura-
tion of the lease.
