crowds overflow into hallways and
stairwells. Some other study havens
have posted signs saying, "Please

Overcrowding in the larger librar-

acknowledged by administrators as
well as students, but suggested solu-
tions vary - none completely solve
the problem.
"WE KNOW THE libraries are
crowded," Director of Libraries
Frederick Wagman said. "There are

is the transfer of the engineering li-

The head of the UGLI, Rose-Grace
Faucher, noting the move will allevi-
ate some of the overcrowding, said:
"Now, all the social science collec-

must be in that area. When the engi-
neering library moves, we will be
able to spread the collection out."

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter yesterday ordered a reorgani-
zation of the U.S. intelligence com-
munity, terming his action a "major
step forward" in safeguarding both
the national interest and civil liber-
Carter signed at a White House
ceremony a bulky executive order
designed not only to streamline the
intelligence setup, but also 'to put
strict new curbs on covert activities
that drew fire from congressional
investigators. The restrictions in-
clude an outright ban on attempted
political assassinations.
THE PRESIDENT took the occa-
sion to expres his "sincere and com-
plete confidence" in Adm. Stansfield
Turner, an Annapolis classmate he
named as director of the Central In-
telligence Agency.
Turner emerges from the reorgani-
zation with enhanced authority, par-
ticularly over the preparation of
budgets not only for CIA but also for
the Pentagon's National Security
Agency and Defense Intelligence
Agency. However, administration
officials acknowledged Turner did
not get all the expanded powers he
The CIA chief has caused dissatis-
faction in the CIA, especially for
abruptly firing a large number of
senior agents last year.
TURNER AND other intelligence
bosses attended the ceremony, as did
a sizable delegation from Congress
as well as Vice President Walter
Mondale, who helped direct a
months-long administration review
that led to the executive order.
"In my opinion," said Mondale,
"the most important principle this
executive order stands for is that we
can protect our nation and do it
within the law."
Calling attention' to illegalities
exposed by Congress, Mondale said
the order takes direct issue with
those who argue that illegal means
are necessary if intelligence activi-
ties are to succeed.

oversight role to Attorney General
Griffin Bell, who henceforth must
personally authorize the use of
electronic surveillance, television
monitoring, physical searches or
mail openings by the intelligence
community when American citizens
or organizations are the targets.
Mail may be opened only when the
items involved have passed beyond
the care" of the Postal Service.
The restricted activities, in gener-
al, can only be directed against
Americans if there is cause to believes
they are foreign agents.
THE ORDER says intelligence ac-
tivities "should be responsive to

legitimate governmental needs and
must be conducted in a manner that
preserves andrespects established
concepts of privacy and civil liber-
In regard to reorganization, two
standing committees of the National
Security Council are given newly
defined and expanded roles:
-The Policy Review Committee,
chaired by Turner, will set intelli-
gence priorities and make sure
budgets take them into account.
Carter said, "This ensures that the
needs of the most important users of
intelligence will guide the entire
intelligence process."
-The Special Coordination Com-
mittee, headed by presidential assist-
ant Zbigniew Brzezinski, "will re-
view and make recommendations to
the President on the most sensitive
intelligence activities" and, for the
first time, coordinate all counter-
intelligence work.

CAIRO, Egypt (AP)-Most Egyptians
blame Israel rather than Anwar Sadat
for the abrupt halt in peace negotiations
and analysts say the limping economy,
rather than the Mideast crisis, con-
tinues to be the Egyptian president's
chief problem at home.
"I believe Sadat can rule Egypt as
long as he wants. There is no organized
opposition in Egypt and Egyptians tend
to worship their lelader," a leading lef-
tist professor of politics said yesterday.
"HE WOULD NOT be toppled by the
handling of the negotiations with Israel
but by the economy."
As long as Sadat continues to receive
the support of the Egyptian army,
analysts say, and as long as the
economy continues to make "dramatic
improvements," in the words of World
Bank President Robert McNamara,
Sadat seems assured of maintaining a
free negotiating hand.
The Egyptian public greeted with
jubilation Sadat's Nov. 19-21 fence-
mending visit' to Jerusalem and his
subsequent declaration of "no more
war." Many saw it as a solution to
Egypt's economic depression -and
hoped more money could be diverted'
from defense spending into social
programs aimed at improving the

State m
Students could save $100 on this
year's state income tax return, and
gven more in future years, if the state
legislature passes a controversial bill
now in committee.
The bill, sponsored by Rep. Jackie
Vaughn (D-Detroit), calls for a credit
against state income tax for under-
graduates who file a state return, or
for their parents if the student does
not file a return.
However, Rep. George Montgom-
ery (D-Detroit), chairman of the
Committee on Taxation which is now
considering the bill, is opposed to the
"It wouldn't help those who need it
the most," said Montgomery. "There

aygive s
are many better ways to do the job
than the Vaughn proposal."
As chairman of the committee,
Montgomery holds substantial power
over the fate of the bill. It has been
prevented from coming onto the floor
of the House for debate and a vote
since it was introduced by Vaughn
one year ago today.
"They (the state legislature) are
notoriously slow on moving on any
kind of changes on tax laws," said
Richard Kennedy, University vice-
president for state relations. "The
chairman probably hasn't been per-
suaded that this bill has any particu-
larly hard support."
In fact, Kennedy as well as
several University economists ques-

tudents tax aid

Kennedy said it is possible that the
decreased state revenue due to the
credit could result in smaller in-
creases in state appropriations to the
University. "The gains of the stu-
dents might be offset by our need to
increase tuition due to decreased
appropriations," he cautioned.
The University has not taken an
official positionon the bill, but if it
were to support the bill, Kennedy
warned, "(we could), in one sense, be
cutting our own throats."
Economics Prof. William Neenan
said the proposed tax credit would be
a departure from ,the state's tradi-
tional emphasis on aid to institutions

rather than directly to citizens.
Neenan shared Kennedy's concern
over the tax credit's effect on the size
of the University's state appropria-
tion. "The amount of money for edu-
cation is a finite amount," he said.
"This isn't a big enough amount to
induce someone whether or not to go
to college," complained Paul Cour-
ant, an economics professor who is
affiliated with the University's Insti-
tute of Public Policy Studies. He said
the credit would amount to a "gift"
for most of the people receiving the

Over the last three decades, Allen
Ginsberg has been a force in American
culture all by himself. He is a
philosopher, a social critic, and a foun-
ding father of the "beatnik movement."
He was a musician on Bob Dylan's
"Rolling Thunder" tour, and spent time
teaching at the "Jack Kerouac Scool of
Disembodied Poetics."
But ' last night at Rackham
Auditorium, Ginsberg played his best-
known role for a packed house: Gin-
sberg the poet.
HIS BLACK HAIR and beard spotted
with grey, Ginsberg enjoyed a rapport
with his responsive audience from the
start. At one point during the first half
of his reading, Ginsberg requested that
the crowd do some "homework for the
next poem" by sitting silently for five
Instructing the several hundred
listeners to think of nothing, to keep
their eyes open, to concentrate on their
exhalation and to sit so that "your spine
supports your body rather than your
body supporting your spine," Ginsberg
created an atmosphere of absolute
silence for a full five minutes.
Jingling a bell to mark the end of the
"silent sitting," the aging poet read
"Mindbreaths," a poem he wrote

Ginsberg, who describes his poems as
the sound of the "wind talking," is also:
a very politically opinionated artist. His
beliefs are made evident in poems titled
"CIA Dope Calpyso," which was
dedicated to John Sinclair, and
"Gospel, Noble Truths."
