When guilish eyes are smilingA
It was a big day yesterday for CIA director Stansfield Turner; President Carter's intelligence community reorganization
left him with his influence considerably expanded. But the Detroit News reported Monday that Zbigniewski Brzezinski
(left), Carter's national security adviser, was leading a move to have Turner dumped. A Brzezinski aide said the report
could be "completely discounted." Must be true; that brotherly smile on Brzezinski's mug could convince a sparrow that

standard of living.
THE RELENTLESS rise in Egypt's
cost of living has been blamed for the
bloody riots of January 1977 when
nearly 1,000 persons were killed or in-
jured in violence that Sadat claimed
was Soviet-inspired.
The steady increase in population
puts pressure on housing and job
markets, but economists say
significant progress has been made
recently with the help of massive injec-
tions of aid from the United States and
oil-rich Arab countries like Saudi
Arabia.
"As long as Sadat keeps the people
fed, the only danger is from the army,
but who really knows how they feel?" a
political analyst said.
WESTERN DIPLOMATS say the
Egyptian army, one of the few
organized groups with national political
clout, so far has lent full support to
Sadat's peace initiative despite the un-
certain status of negotiations.
"The broad ideological spectrum
supporting Sadat is astonishing," said a
Western professor of political science.
Sadat's abrupt move last week
recalling his foreign minister from the
Egyptian-Israeli political talks in
Jerusalem was met with disappoin-
tment by the Egyptian ;man-in-the-
street. But the Egyptian public directed
its anger outward toward Israel and
agreed with Sadat's statements ac-
cusing Israel of undermining his peace
drive.
"A FEW DAYS ago I thought peace
was a step away," said Osman Khalil, a
Cairo optician. "Now it may be years
away. You can see (Israeli Prime
Minister Menachem)V Begin doesn't
want peace because when we offered it
to him, he turned away."
Some scattered opposition to Sadat
has surfaced, however.
Egypt's small leftist party, which has
opposed Sadat's initiative from the
start, called for cutting contacts with
Israel and the United Statesafter the
Jerusalem talks broke down last week.
In addition, Arab hardliners within
Egypt vigorously opposed Sadat's ef-
forts.
On the conservative side, the right-
wing magazine El Daw called on
Muslims to unite and retake Arab
Jerusalem by force. But there was no
war fever within the country and the
call went unheeded.
THE EGYPTIAN professor said the
troubled economy was actually

someone else he can pick him up."
"If you see a guy wandering down the
street, do you let him stumble along his
merry way?" Krasny asks. "Once we
take him in to the patrol car, we are
bound by law to take him to a detoxifi-
cation center."
Krasny predicts there could be up to a
50 per cent reduction in the number of
drunks actually picked up by police.
"They'll be able to make it from the bar
home now," he says, "unless they start
busting up signs along the way. We'll
get them for that."
Local bars see potential problems in
getting drunks home, since the police
are no longer responsible for it.
"If the police can't act until the per-
son commits a crime, they should be
allowed to give that person assistance,"
contends Mike Messersmith, manager
of the BLue Frogge. "The police are
supposed to both enforce and protect.
Tying their hands negates part of the
law enforcement's duty to protect."'
SAID MESSERSMITH, "What is go-
ing to happen here now is that when-
ever. anyone is in a questionable state,
we will approach that person and offer
a cab or offer to drive home.
"We're going to do everything the
police can't do, because of this new
law," Messersmith says. "I, feel we
have to, since we're part of the con-
tributors to this so-called problem."
Dave Rogers, manager of Second
Chance; agrees. "It's probably going to
put more responsibility on us," he says.
"We will try to get cabs for people."
ROGERS ADDS he likes the new law.
"I don't think that just because you're
drunk you should be locked in the clink.
Neither do I think you should be left
alone."
"I really don't like the new law," said
Jim Mills, manager of Dooley's. "I
think it's a bad thing for the area."
Mills says police should be able to
arrest potential troublemakers before

they actually break laws, like smashing
windows on their way home. "The
people who walk around sober don't
cause the trouble," he asserts.
BUT GENERALLY the new law is
greeted with a resounding cheer. That
is, except for veteran drinker Edward
Halish, a junior in the Engineering
School, who says the law "has little
consequence for two reasons."

"If you're drunk, you're likely to be
obnoxious," Halish maintains "And in
Ann Arbor, there aren't enough bars to
get drunk at anyway.''
When informed that he could still be
picked up by police if drunk and creat-
ing a disturbance, and that he must
then by law be taken to University Hos-
pital's emergency room, Halish said,
"Hospital? My God, I'd rather spend
the night in jail!"

Treaties backed

WASHINGTON (AP)-Two of the
nation's top military leaders denied
yesterday that their support for the
Panama Canal treaty was the result of
pressure by the Carter administration.
Adm. James Holloway III, Chief of
Naval Operations, told the Senate Ar-
med Services committee he personally
would prefer a treaty permitting the
United States to keep full military con-
trol over the canal. But in an "imper-
fect world," he said, "we need to un-
derstand realistically that this is a
responsibility that we must share with
Panama."

Holloway and Gen. Louis H. Wilson,
the Marine Corps commandant, were
grilled intensively by committee mem-
bers as to whether they, along with
their Air Force and Ar'my colleagues on
the Joint Chiefs of Staff, truly endorse
the treaty.
