Arab hardliners blast

Sadat at summit

ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) - Hard-
line Arab leaders adjourned their
summit meeting late last night with
no sign they had agreed on a plan to
scuttle Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat's peace negotiations with Is-
A final communique harshly criti-
cized Sadat, accusing him of follow-
ing the "American-Zionist plan to
undermine the possibilities of a just
"plan" was designed to make Egypt
an agent to prevent Arabs and
Africans from "safeguarding their
freedom, obtaining their liberty and
choosing their options toward prog-
The conference ended more than 24
hours late as leaders of Algeria,
Syria, Libya, South Yemen and the
Palestine Liberation Organization
(PLO) tried to organize an 'action
front" with a joint political-military,
command and arms procurement
Conference sources said Libyan
President Moammar Khadafy sought
iron-clad pledges from President
Hafez Assad of Syria and PLO leader
Yasser Arafat that they would not
follow Sadat's policy under any
KHADAFY ALSO rejected the idea
that Libya, the richest of the hard-
liners, be sole financier for the arms
fund, sources reported.
Nearly 3,000 years ago, the Egyp-
tians and Assyrians trained cheetahs
to hunt, and the practice continued
until modern times in India, says
National Geographic.
When Hurricane Bella swept
through several East Coast states in
1976, the storm caused about $22.7
million in insured damage, reports
the Insurance Information Institute.

KHADAFY WANTED Iraq, general-
ly regarded as the hardest of the
hard-liners and which boycotted the
summit because of a longstanding
feud with Syria, to be a full member
of the group.
A final statement issued atthe end
of the meeting said it examined "the
pursuit of the imperialist plan in the
framework of which President Sadat
is working with the Zionist enemy
and in virtue of which he is consent-
ing to concessions which attack the
basic essence of the national and
historic rights of the Arab nation."
THE MEETING was similar to one
held in Tripoli, Libya, shortly after
Sadat made the historic visit to
Jerusalem in November that isolated
him from most of the rest of the Arab

Algerian Foreign Minister Abdel-
aziz Bouteflika, who hosted the
summit, said earlier the participants
did not want to exclude Sadat from
the Arab community, but said "the

Arnson confirmed he was dismissed

Hanson also confirmed that Arnson

Arnson did an excellent job as an RA

"He really brought the floor

According to a number of resident.

park,, child care center, residential
district, or within 1500 feet of an
already-existing sex shop.
An "adult entertainment business"
is defined as any business that deals
in materials "characterized by their
emphasis on portrayals of human
genitals and pubic regions, or acts of
human masturbation, sexual inter-
course, or sodomy."
The "adult entertainment busi-
ness" category also includes a
vaguely-defined "personal service
business" category, which the bill
calls any business "whose principal
activity consists of a person of one
sex providing personal services for a
person of the other sex on an
individual basis in a closed room.

ments from existing from within 1500

centers, Belcher indicated his bill
probably prohibits any adult enter-
tainment shop from opening in Ann
Arbor, since few if any locations
meet the 1500-feet requirement.
"It is an ingenious attempt to
restrict First Amendment activity by
the use of zoning laws," said the
ACLU's Simon. "It's a not-too-thinly
disguised attempt to eliminate what
they define as an adult entertain-
ment business. It constitutes outright
"We're not trying to censor,"
Councilman Belcher said. "I don't
think anyone's out -to deny people
what they want. It's not denying any-
one the right to read anything they
want or to buy anything they want."
BELCHER SAID his bill is de-
signed "to keep somewhat of an
integrity in our residential zones."
Belcher said he doesn't anticipate
any problems from the ACLU, how-
ever, and is confident that the bill
will pass. "We'll just have to wait
and see," he said.
Belcher said he sees no problem in
passing the second part of his
ordinance, which will be introduced
at Council Monday night, right after
the public hearing on part one. The
second part would prohibit displays
of pornographic books and maga-
zines in stores where children are
allowed,such as drug stores.
The ACLU, however, objects to
part two, charging both censorship

and violation of First Amendment
"To prohibit display is to restrict
the circulation and distribution of
material," said Simon. "There is a
-relationship between sale and dis-
play. To prohibit display is to restrict
Simon added, "You can't pass an
ordinance that violates the Constitu-
tion. There is no substitute for paren-
tal control."
Simon said he did not know
whether the ACLU or a representa-
tive would appear at the Monday
night public hearing to protest the or-
dinance before Council. He said he
would be discussing the matter today
with ACLU Washtenaw County Di-
rector Donald Coleman.
Coleman earlier said he would be
"very interested" in the proposed or-
dinance and would bring it up at the
next ACLU board meeting.
"We would be very uncomfortable
with this kiAd of regulation," Cole-
man said. "In a free society, the
kinds of thing that restrict freedom.of
choice would be more destructive
than the material itself."
Simon added, "We end up with poli-
ticians who think they were elected to
be the guardians of morality. The
best thing that Mr. Belcher could do
to avoid being offended by these pub-
lications is not to purchase orsread
them. It is no business of Mr.
Belcher's what people read in the
privacy of their own home."
