Israeli proposal
on principles may
help revive talks'

CAIRO (AP) - Egyptian Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat said yesterday
that he is in "constant contact" with
President Carter and that behind-
the-scenes negotiations were under
way to reopen talks with Israel. But
he said he does not know when or if
talks will resume.
Israel, with U.S. help, reportedly
has drafted a proposed declaration of
principles aimed at restarting politi-
cal talks in Jerusalem, which had
begun to deal with the Palestinian
and qther issues before Sadat broke
them off last week.
ISRAELI officials said their coun-
try was awaiting a response from
Cairo on the proposed declaration.
The officials also predicted that the
Israeli cabinet this weekend would
decide to renew the parallel military
talks in Cairo, which the cabinet last
Sunday chose not to rejoin.

tment; Sandalow will succeed Theodore
St. Antoine, who has been dean for the

return to teaching at the end of the
current fiscal year and will be on leave
next year.
A UNIVERSITY professor since 1966,
Sandalow said if the Regents approve
his appointment he will "have to deal
with increasing the quality of the Law
School's programs," during his five-
year stint as Dean, beginning July 1.

Alfred Atherton has been trying to
mediate a dispute over wording of
the declaration.
IN TEL AVIV, deputy Prime
Minister Yigael Yadin said Israel
made an informal offer to Egypt for
an exchange of territory to solve the
dispute between the two countries
over Jewish settlements in the
Israeli-occupied Sinai Peninsula. Ya-
din was the first senior government
official to confirm an exchange of
land had been proposed.
Yadin said on television the pro-
posal was raised in "feelers of an
informal nature" but Egypt rejected
it. Sadat has said Israel's insistence
on keeping Jewish settlements in the
Sinai caused him to break off the
peace talks last week. Israel has
about 20 settlements in the Rafah
Salient in northeastern Sinai.
Yadin said the Rafah area covers
only one half of one per cent of
Egypt's land area and that if an
exchange were agreed upon, Israel
could not give up more than one half
of one per cent of its territory.
BY YADIN'S calculation, Israel
would give up 40 square miles of a
sparsely populated section of the
Negev Desert. Prime Minister Mena-
chem Begin has publicly rejected the
idea of changing the accepted Israeli-
Egyptian boundary.
King Hassan of Morocco called on
Arab countries to rally behind Sadat,
saying such support would put pres-
sure on Western leaders to persuade
Israel to withdraw from occupied
Arab territory.;
In an interview published today in
the Cairo daily Al Gomhouria, Has-
san said if the breakdown in negotia-
tions leads to a new Mideast war,
Morocco would be "the first to fulfill
its national obligation.
SADAT also received support from
President Tito of Yugoslavia, who
said in a seven-page letter to the
Egyptian president he supports the
peace moves with Israel, the semi-
official Cairo newspaper Al Ahram
reported in Thursday editions.
Tito reportedly said all non-aligned
nations should support Sadat to
prevent Israel from exploiting Arab

HHH's wife accepts Senate seat

- Muriel Humphrey, who says she
wants to "help complete" some of
her late husband Hubert's unfinisfied
legislative business, was appointed
yesterday to his vacant seat in the
U.S. Senate by Minnesota Gov. Rudy
Mrs. Humphrey, who will be 66
next month, becomes the only wo-
man in the Senate. She will serve at
least until a special election is held
next November to fill the remaining
four years of her husband's term.
HUMPHREY died of cancer at his
lakeside home in Waverly, Minn., on
Jan. 13. He was 66. The couple had
been married 41 years.
Mrs. Humphrey declined to say
whether she would run in the special
election. "That's a long time away. I
have no idea," she told reporters.
She said she had never discussed
with her husband the possibility of
serving out his term. "I think that
Hubert never once said that he was
going to do anything but go back to
the Senate.

Begin has indicated Israel would be,

Humphrey linked his appeal for
Israeli flexibility on the Sinai settle-
ments to his view that there also is a
need for Arab compromising on the
Palestine issue.
MRS. HUMPHREY'S appointment
was announced at a news conference
in the lobby of an apartment complex
in Hillsboro Beach, a suburb of Fort
Lauderdale, where Mrs. Humphrey
is vacationing.

nor to make a temporary appoint-

HER HUSBAND commanded wide
respect in international circles. Two
days before his death, Humphrey
appealed to Israeli Prime Minister
Menahem Begin to be flexible in his
negotiations with Egypt, particularly
on the issue of Jewish settlements in
the Sinai.
The late senator wrote to Begin, "It
is time for all parties to show toler-
