hopes to return to Cairo shortly,
although Kissinger's second round
of talks is expected to take place
in Aswan.
Aswan is a symbol of Soviet as-
sistance to Egypt. It is the site of
the high dam in the construction
of which the then American Sec-
retary of State John Dulles refused
to participate in 1956.
AS OFFICIALS from the two
sides waited for Kissinger to ar-

Fahmy and other members )f the

The group included Hafez Is-
mail, Sadat's adviser for national
security affairs.
Later, Chief of Staff Maj.-Gen.
Mohammed Abdel Ghany El-Gam-
asy joined Fahmy 3at the ontel,
though Eilts was no longer there.
MOHAMMED Hassanein Heykal,
editor of Al Ahram, and a clase
friend and confidant of Sadat, said
yesterday that Israel was trying to
divide the Arabs and weaken
Egypt's position through the Ge-
neva Peace Conference.
He wrote that Israel might feel
that the Geneva conference was a
good start towards the break up
of the Arab front. Egypt was en-
gaged in the conference on the po-
litical and military levels. Jordan
was there but only on the p'litical
level while Syria was absent al-
together, he said.
"The Arab world does not know
exactly where it stands, and the
oil has shifted from the war front
to the auction hall," he added.
ISRAEL ALSO wanted to sow
suspicions between the Arabs and
the Soviet Union. "The Arabs
would seem to have stepped for-
ward towards an American solu-
tion after going to war with Soviet
weapons," Heykal said.
Israel's strategy had not been
changed although it now had anew
formula. The object remained the
same: "The isolation of Egypt

H Guienze said Gill is "as close to
being totally rehabilitated as any
r prisoner I've ever seen." Parole
officer John Stacy termed him "a
brilliant human being, an ambi-
tious and persuasive leader.
Lee Gill's version? "I ran that
place (Milan) in eight months. I
had more to do with what went on
down in the jail than the goddamn
warden did."
Gill was paroled under the aegis
of the prison's study-release pro-
gram, an operation he helped de-
sign. The program involves classes
for prisoners at the University,
and is didn't take long for Gill to
move from parolee to enrollee-as
atconcentrator in Public Policy
THE CAMPUS political arena
saw Gill rise quickly from South
Quad Minority Council president,
to SGC Vice President for Minor-
ity Affairs, and finally to the po-
sition he vacated Thursday night.
Meanwhile, there was a notice-
able improvement in Gill's per-
sonal effects. He became involved
in a concert promoting operatior
which has staged a string of sell-
out shows. Gill and Smith, Inc.
has so far netted nearly half a mil
lion dollars in net profits, accord
ing to Gill. Also, he claims to be

ohammed Hence the self-styled "modest
il Fahmy sort of guy" usually showed up
). [ for SGC meetings clothed in a

dashing array of f'shionable shirts
and high-heeled shoes.
FOR A TIME, it appeared that
the new SGC president would re-.
vive the Council through sheer
personal force. The black, green
and red colors of black liberation
began appearing on SGC letter-
heads; sober working sessions re-
placed the zoo-gone-wild atmos-
phere prevalent in SGC meetings
under previous administrations.
The eloquent Mr. Gill lingered
in the spotlight for several months
after his election made headlines
from Chicago to Detroit. He initi-
ated the tuition strike with an im-
passioned speech to some 600 en-
tering freshmen in early Septem-
rber. Gill challenged the new stu-
dents to "rise up together against
the University's tyranny.
The plea produced a roaring ova-
tion from the audience and tongue-
tied amazement from Allan Smith,
the University's vice president for
academic affairs, who shared the
podium with Gill on that remark-
able night.
* But the tuition strike soon lost
whatever impetus Gill had pro-
2vided. By late October a discour-
aged Gill sat in his office next
- to a pile of unused strike leaflets
- and said, "I did what I could,. .
we, the Council, did what we could,
but the students just wouldn't pick
- up the ball."
THE FALL semester was punc-
t tuated by attacks from Gill's op-
ponents. The charges of illegality
a and fraud went unproved, but the

constant banter of "he's a crim-
inal" must have taken its toll.
The list of allegations included
embezzlement of Council funds,
theft of an SGC desk, assault and
battery, and failure to properly
enroll as a student.
The blockbuster was the em-
bezzlement charge: an anonymous
leaflet chock full of libelous over-
tones declared that Gill tried to
pocket some $8500 by making a
questionable SGC financial trans-
action. A Daily investigation pro-
duced no evidence of wrongdoing,
but the incident raised enough
questions and drew enough public-
ity to sabotage Gill's waning in-
GILL, THE winner-against-all-
odds, was cast in the uncomfort-
able role of the loser who cheated
and got caught. No one could prove
that he cheated, but the campus
saw in SGC a weak double image:
a number of Council members in-
cessantly voicing their distrust of
Gill, and a president who said lit-
tle and made fewer and fewer pub-
lic appearances.
But from his election to his
resignation, Gill ran Council meet-
ings with a calm, impartial effec-
tiveness that moved both support-
ers and opponents to reflect at his
departure: "He kept SGC from
flying apart."
In the jurisdictional chaos that
has already engulfed SGC since
Thursday, the Council may soon
regret the exit of the remark-
able Mr. Gill.

Would you be willing to tell the world, "I did this?"
After all, you're pretty good at what you do. Probably
proud of it, too.
Well, most of us will never get to sign our work. And
maybe that's a shame. Because as good as we are, it might
make us better. And we can afford to be. Whether we're

We'll all have more to show for it.
More money, for one thing.::
Because we'll be giving
each other our N
money's worth
for the products, the services and
even the government we pay for.
. For another thing, we'll be giving Amer-
ica a better chance to take on our foreign
business competitors. Not just here. All around
the world. That would help bring the lopsided
balance of payments back onto our side. And
make your dollar worth more.
Best of all, as we hit our stride, we'll be protecting
jobs here at home. For ourselves
and the future. And we'll have a
deeper sense of satisfaction in the BY
jobs we've got.
You don't have to sign your work to
see all these things happen. And more.
Just do the kind of work you'd be
