Rally planned
In the,wake of the eruption of war in the Middle East,
a group known as the Coalition of Concerned Students
and Faculty has called a rally for today at noon on the
Diag to show its support for Israel.
Former editor honored
The Daily's own Sara Fitzgerald, former editor-in-
chief, has added another feather to her journalistic cap,
winning a Sigma Delta Chi award for newswriting not
under deadline. Fitzgerald, now a reporter for the St.
Petersburg Times, was awarded for work that appeared
in The Daily. Previously, she received the 1973 grand
prize from the Detroit Press Foundation. She will be
recognized forher most recent achievement at a Sigma
Delta Chi convention in Buffalo next month.
New U' program
The University celebrated Columbus Day yesterday
by announcing a new program that will study the Euro-
pean "age of discovery with a $180,000 Mellon Foun-
dation grant. Under the auspices of the William Clem-
ents Library, the Institute for Studies in the History of
Discovery, will provide funds beginning next fall for
graduate students in the field of history, geography and
English literature to re-examine the period of European
explorations from the 15th through 18th centuries. In
addition, the program will sponsor a scholarship using
the Clements Library, publications focusing on new in-
terpretations of the period, and at least one conference
of scholars in the area. "This field has been overlooked
in recent years, and our program will focus attention
on these problems from a new perspective," said Doug-
las Marshall, library curator of maps_ and program co-

Government sworn in
A new Greek government, headed by Premier Spyros
Markezinis, 64, was sworn in yesterday to prepare Greece
for its first gneral elections in 10 years. Markezinis
was charged with forming a government a week ago by
President George Papadopoulos, who in June proclaimed
a republic after deposing the exiled King Constantine.
The new 40-member civilian cabinet will replace the
army-backed regime that ruled the country since the
coup in April, 1967. "I am convinced that the elections
must be held so that everyone will accept te fair manner
in which they are conducted," Markezinis said in a na-
tionally-broadcast address. Sources close to Markezinis
said the parliamentary elections would most likely come
next April.
Another immolation
Taking a lead from a recent shocking Boston murder,
a band of teenager youths in Edinburgh, Scotland, set
fire to a man Sunday who was drinking with a friend in
an alley. John Hamilton, 46, a transient, survived the
attack but was reported in critical condition. Three
youths grabbed him and doused ┬░him with the highly
flammable alcoholic beverage he had been drinking and
then threw a match on him. Two men passing quickly
smothered the flames with their jackets. Police held
three youths for questioning.

Inoperative funding
Uncle Sam gave the small community of Hiseville,
Kentucky a revenue-sharing check for $1,727 and now
he wants the money back. More than half of the money
-which represents about $727, more than the town's
entire annual budget - has already gone toward re-M
modeling City Hall. 'The government wants the funds
back because it maintains that Hiseville received too
much last year. Said Mayor William Phillips, "We've
complied with everything we were supposed to. And now
they say they want their money back I don't know what
to think . . . We're not a bunch of crooks," he added.






According to a report issued yes-
terday by the University Affirma-
tive Action Program, women and
members of minority groups em-
ployed by the University receive
lower salaries than do their male,
non-minority counterparts.
The report reveals that men get
a higher mean salary than do wo-
men in all instructional classifi-

URGING AGAINST debate on who
is to blame for the new war, he
said this wojld be "the least dam-
aging way" to move from con-
frontation to negotiation.
But China, one of the five mem-
bers of the council with the right
of veto, said: "If the council is to
adopt any resolution at all, it
must condemn all acts of aggres-
sion by the Israeli Zionists and de-
mand the immediate withdrawal by
the Israeli Zionists from all the
Arab territory they occupied."
Chinese Ambassador Huang Hua
branded as "preposterous" Scali' s
proposal that Egypt and Syria re-
turn to their positions before the
outbreak of fighting on Saturday.
THE' FOREIGN minister of
Egypt, Mohammed Hassen E-Zay-
yat, said Israel had struck first.
Going into the background of the
breakout, he said the Security
Council, except for the United
States, had favored demanding Is-
rael's withdrawal from Arab terri-
tory taken in the 1967 Middle East
"But the collective will of the
council was paralyzed and render-
ed inoperative" by an American
veto last July 26, Zayyat recalled.

General Kurt Waldheim asked the

Normally there are 90 UiN ob-

Some of these observers reported
the Egyptian crossings as the new
war broke out early Saturday.
They reported no Israeli crossings.

Asrabs sra1e1s both
y . -claim some victorie's
By Reuter
War continued to rage in the Golan Heights and across the Suez
Canal last night with Israel claiming to have repulsed the powerful
two-pronged Arab attack and Egypt reporting its capture of the
provincial capital of Kantara in the Israeli-led Sinai Peninsula.
Egypt said its forces were penetrating into Sinai and Syria claimed
to be pressing its advance across the bitterly contested Golan Heights.
In addition, Egypt claimed it had destroyed Sinai oil wells'used by the
MEANWHILE, Israel said it launched a successful counter-offensive
which saw its troops advancing on Syria to the North and frustrating
the Egyptian invasion from the West
In a report confirmed by both
sides, Israeli planes were said to
have bombed and strafed the re s r
Egyptian city of Port Said on the
Mediterranean Sea. Israel said only
military targets in the city had
been struck, but Egypt reported. t x b o
numerous civilian casualties. The o o
attack raised the possibility of a
repraisal raid on an Israeli city.
Egypt said its troops had raised
the Egyptian flag above Kantara Conflicts
captured by the victorious Israelis
in the 1967 Six-Day War. Israel
branded the Egyptian report ridicu-
lous, saying Kantara had been in pbed
ruins and uninhabited since the
1967 conflict.

President Jaafar El-Nimeiry an-
nounced he too was sending troops
to what he called the "Liberation
War" against Israel.
Egypt and Syria claim to have
downed at least 159 Israeli planes
-well over a third of the Israeli
total air strength. However, Israel
said its planes were in total com-
mand of the skies over both Sinai
and the Golan Heights.
Israel claimed to have knocked
out 400 Syrian tanks in fierce bat-
tles in Golan and to have sunk an
Egyptian minesweeper in an en-
gagement in the Gulf of Suez.
Chief of Staff Gen. David Elazar
told newsmen Israel had no com-
punction about crossing the 1967
ceasefire line into Egyptian andt
Syrian territory.
Asked if Israeli forces had cross-
ed the Suez Canal into Egypt,
Elazar replied, "Not yet." But ask-
ed if Israeli troops had battled
their way into Syria, he responded
y that Israeli forces were moving
ht from their own territory "to the
n other side."

The Senate Advisory Committee
on University Affairs (SACUA)
yesterday established a committee
to investigate possible conflicts of
interest arising from professors as-
signing their own textbooks, tapes,
and other classroom materials to
their students.
The formation of the committee
was prompted by an article in The
Daily, Aug. 8, that revealed "a
vast number" of University facul-
ty members were assigning 'their

problem seems to be defining the
"This conflict of interest has got
to be handled on a broader basis
than just textbooks," said Haddad.
"There are so many aspects of
conflict of interest."
According to many members of
SACUA, the broader-based question
is, are faculty members using
their time in such a way that the
student is suffering, and if so, to
what degree?
