Prof. dies
Geology Prof. Claude Hibbard, curator of fossil verte-
brates in the Museum of Paleontology, died suddenly in
his office yesterday. He was 68. Hibbard was considered
to be an expert in late Cenozoic and Cenozoic fossils.
,LSA Dean Frank Rhodes termed the death "a grevious
loss," and said, "It is characteristic that Claude Hibbard
died as he lived, in harness, and that on the day of his
death he should come to his office in the Museum long
before the building opened." Hibbard first joined the
University faculty in 1946. He is survived by his wife, a
daughter and two granddaughters. Funeral arrange-
ments are incomplete.
Prof. honored
Mabel Rugen, professor emeritus of health education
has received the 1973 William A. Howe Award-the high-
esthonorin the field ofschool health-it was announced
yesterday. Rugen, a University faculty member for
four generations, was cited by the American School
Health Association for "an outstanding contribution to
the health of children throughout the world."

Even more - 13 per cent - said they engaged in some

titioners.
More bugging
The liberal-oriented Institute for Policy Studies in

Syrian capital takes
hieavy Civilian losses
By AP' and Reuter
Israeli warplanes bombed the Syrian capital of Damascus
and hit military targets deep in Egypt yesterday while tanks
and infantry were reported locked in "ferocious battles" on
both fronts in the Mideast war.
Though they claimed to have stabilized the situation along
the Golan Heights; the Israelis admitted they have pulled back
several miles from their previous positions in the Sinai Pe-
ninsula.
LATE LAST NIGHT a Cairo communique said the Egyp-
tians had stabbed nine miles to the east of the 103-mile canal.
Israeli officials maintained that the Bar-Lev line of outposts
used in the 1967 war had been abandoned and that their
forces were holding a defense line some three miles to the east

A NEWS ANALYSIS

U. S. sources

By FRED S. HOFFMAN
AP Military Writer
WASHINGTON 6P) - U.S. mili-
tary analysts believe the Israelis
can push Egyptian and Syrian forc-
es out of the Sinai Peninsula and
the Golan Heights area, but only
at ''a very considerable cost.''
Defense Department and other
U.S. government analysts are not
saying the tide has turned for the
Israelis, as some Israeli generals
have claimed.
"THE ISRAELIS are proceeding

about as expected, but they are
behind schedule," one official said.
"The Arabs are doing better this
time than they have in the past."
The key to swift Israeli victory
in the 1967 war was its mastery
of the air, gained in a surprise pre-
emptive strike catching much of
the Arab air force on the ground.
This air dominance permitted co-
ordinated warplane and armor as-
saults that decimated Egyptian
tank and infantry units.
But this time, U.S. sources said,

the Israeli air force has had ser-
ious problems trying to knock out
Soviet-built surface-to-air missiles
missing during the 1967 six-day war
-on both the Egyptian and Syrian
fronts.
UNTIL THESE missiles are neu-
tralized, Israeli warplanes cannot
range freely against Egyptian and
Syrian armor and infantry forma-
tions.
Sources said that about 35 of the
approximately 40 Israeli warplanes
lost through Monday night fell to
surface-to-air missiles, principally
the lethal SA6, designed to deal
with low flying airplanes.
The Egyptians and Syrians are
reported to have lost about 100
warplanes, some on the ground
when Israel attacked five Egyptian
airfields and some Syrian fields.
IF THE reports are accurate,
each side would have lost more
than 10 per cent of its air striking
power.
According to intelligence assess-
ments reaching Washington, t h e
Egyptians have penetrated the Sin-
ai along an irregular front ranging
from five to about 15 miles of the
Suez Canal, short of Israeli's main
Sinai defense line based in key
passes through high ground.
The Egyptians were said to have
some70,000 men and between 600
and 800 tanks, some powerful Soy-

A check at the United Jewish
Student Appeal booth revealed that
it was doing brisk business.
After a prayer for peace by the
Reverend Ed Edwards and a few
more songs, the rally ended.
The gathering was sponsored by
the Coalition of Concerned Students
and Faculty. The groups behind
the name are the local Hillel or-
ganization and the Israeli Student
Organization.
A spokesperson for Hillel' added
that in a larger sense the demon-
stration was really sponsored by
the people of the community rather
than any formal organizations.
AS THE CROWD dispersed, the
Arabs, who had been marching
silently during the demonstration,
began to chant slogans supporting
their position in the Middle East.
President of the Arab Student
Organization, Ahmed Beshareh,
stated that the Arabs were there to
show disagreement with what they
termed the Israeli aggression. Be-
shareh said, "who started the war
is immaterial. This is a continua-
tion of previous hostilities and can't
be treated separately."
"We are not aggressors," he con-
tinued, "we're attacking land which
is our own. We support the various
United Nations resolutions which
call for an end to Israeli aggres-
sion."
Following the demonstration the
Arabs left en masse.

When playwright Arthur Miller

the event will represent the high
point of the University's greatly-
expanded mini-course program.

erally don't make the curriculum

of the canal.
In other developments Israeli
jets knocked out a radar , station
in the Lebanese mountains near
Barouk, 18 miles east of Beirut.
Lebanon, a noncombatant in the
1967 war wants to maintain the
same status in the current hostili-
ties according to .reports from the
area.
The bombing of Damascus which
resulted in considerable civilian
casualties was regarded as the
critical military development in a
day of heavy fighting on all fronts.
THE RAID and a dogfight with
Syrian jets brought half an hour
of terror and confusion to Vire an-
cient Syrian capital. Women and
children cowered in cellars and
shopkeepers hurriedly closed their
shutters. ,
The three-story Soviet cultural
center was heavily damaged along
with other buildings and private
homes in the diplomatic quarter of
Abu Rammaneh.
Oleg Fomin, the Soviet embassy
cultural attache, condemned the
strafing of the center and told re-
porters: "My government will not
keep silent at this barbaric ac-
tion."
INITIAL REPORTS from Da-
mascus said some 30 Soviets were
killed in the bombing but later
statements indicated that no Rus-
sians had in fact been killed.
At least half of the buildings hit
were the homes of foreign United
Nations and other international ex-
perts.
Among the dead were a Norwe-
gian U. N. truce supervision offic-
er, his wife and daughter and the
wife of an Indian U. N. food and
agricultural organization expert
named Patashariya.
THE AIR ATTACK on Damascus
was in retaliation for a Syrian
bombardment of Northern Israeli
settlements with long-range Soviet-
made Frog missiles over the past
two days, Israel said.
In Tel Aviv, Maj. Gen. Aharon
Yariv told a news conference, "It
is not going to be a short war. The
people of Israel can expect no easy
and elegant victories."

protest
bombing
UNITED NATIONS (Reuter) -
Soviet delegate Jacob Malik last
night walked out of the Security
Council in protest when Israel ex-
pressed its condolences for the loss
of life in yesterday's Israeli air
raids on Damascus, capital of
Syria.
Malik interrupted Israeli Ambas-
sador Yosef Tekoah to say he was
"unrwilling to hear excuses and
condolences from the representa-
tives of the murderers and inter-
national gangsters."
IN THE RAID the Soviet cultural
center was hit and some uncon-
firmed reports said the Soviet Em-
bassy had been struck. Russian
delegation spokesmen here said
they knew nothing about the em-
bassy having been hit.
Other Soviet delegates remained
in the chamber after Malik walked
out.
The council was meeting for the
second time in an effort to find
a fornmula for a ceasefire in the
new Middle East war.
DELEGATES, most of whom ap-
peared to be from Arab countries
which are not members of the
council, loudly applauded Malik's
rebuke.
The president, Sir Laurence Mc-
Intyre of Australia, r e m i n d e d
them, and members of the public
in the gallery, who joined in the
applause, that the council's rules
forbid such demonstrations.
Malik earlier spoke of press re-
ports of "barbaric bombing and
gangster acts by Israeli planes"
against the Soviet cultural center.
U.N. SOURCES yesterday said
that no Security Council resolution
on a ceasefire would emerge until

New developments
in the Middle East
DAMASCUS, Syria - Israeli jets bombed this capital city and
the central Syrian city of Homs in a new escalation of the Middle
East war. Witnesses said many civilians were killed or wounded
Direct hits were reported on the Defense Ministry and a radio-
television station adjoining one of the city's largest squares.
TEL AVIV - Israeli warplanes hit military targets deep inside
Egypt, the military command said, and ground forces "contained"
counterattacking Syrians in the Golan Heights.
A military intelligence chief admitted that Israeli forces had
pulled back two or three miles from most of their original defense
lines against Egypt along the Suez Canal and that it was "too early
to say that we have broken the Syrian army."
BEIRUT - The Defense Ministry said Israeli jets knocked
out a radar station in the Lebanese mountains near Barouk, 18
miles from Beirut, and that Israeli troops fired on the southern
Lebanese village of Blida.
CAIRO - The Cairo military command said its tanks were
pushing the Israelis eastward on the Sinai Peninsula and consoli-
dating the Egyptian hold on the east bank of the Suez Canal. The
command said troops destroyed more than 100 Israeli tanks in a
fierce battle in central and southern Sinai along the canal.
Egyptian officials further claimed that Israeli jets had at-
tacked Cairo and that 16 Phantom jets had been shot down. Four
