Sadat pledges to 'raise hell'if denied weapons
Coni ad thsnt aercm

- - --- ~

WASHINGTON (AP) - Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat told mem-
bers of Congress yesterday that he
will not be shy in asking for U.S.
weapons, adding that, "I shall raise
hel)" if Congress does not approve
them.
Although the comment was made
with a laugh after a meeting with
members of the House of Represen-
tatives, he seemed more somber as
he emerged later from a similar
session with a Senate group.
"I THREATENED them," Sadat
said after his closed door talks with
the senators.

He refused to detail his request for
arms following yesterday's meet-
ings, but he had told a group of
editors Monday night that he wants
sophisticated F-15 and F-16 jet
fighters as well as the short-range
F5E fighters he is known to have re-
quested.
After talking with the House mem-
bers, Sadat offered the "raise hell"
comment with a laugh, but said in a
serious tone about his request to buy
U.S. arms, "The last time I was here
I was shy. But I am not shy any
more."
THEN, AFTER' meeting with

members of the Senate, Sadat said:
"I am not any more shy at all. I am
speaking as a partner and I am
threatening." He refused to say how
he threatened the senators and it was
not clear from his manner how
serious the threat had been.
Sadat said he had lost his "shy-
ness" after what he saw as an over-
whelming American response to his
Middle East peace initiatives.
He suggested that congressional
approval of the arms sales to Egypt
would demonstrate that the United
States is behind Egyptian efforts to
achieve peace in the Middle Fast and

Police petition to place capital
punishment issue on Nov. ballot

would be a demonstration of "part-
nership and cooperation."
AFTER THEIR meeting with Sa-
dat, several House members said the
Egyptian president told them he
wanted more than the 120 lightweight
F-5E jet fighters he reportedly is
asking the Carter administration and
Congress to approve. But the House
members said Sadat did not specify
what other arms he wanted.
When reporters asked Sadat if he
also wants the Air Force's sophisti-
cated new swingwing F-15 jet fighter,
he refused to specify but said he has
given a meticulous list to President
Carter.
After the meeting on the House side
of the Capitol, Democratic Leader
Jim Wright of Texas said he believes
that whatever President Carter re-
quests for Sadat: "I think we'll give
him."
SADAT HAD asked previously for
12 F-5E jet fighters, a lightweight
and relatively unsophisticated plane,
and Carter has been reported to be in
favor of selling him some of the
planes, but not as many as he
wanted.
Congress must approve cash sales
of U.S. weapons abroad as well as
credit sales and outright gifts of
arms.
An official at the National Security

Council said it has not made recom-
mendations to President Carter yet
on arms requests from Egypt, Israel,
Saudi Arabia or Iran.
CONGRESSPEOPLE who attend-
ed the session on the House side said
they were given little time to ask
questions.
They said Sadat was asked what
guarantees the Arabs could give that

'I am not any more shy
at all. I am speaking as a
partner and I am threat-
ening.'
-Anwar Sadat

sure King Hussein of Jordan will
make the same guarantees if he
enters the peace negotiations.
Rep. Stephen Solarz (D-N.Y.), said
he asked Sadat if Egypt could stay
out of a war between Syria and Israel
if Syria alone refused to participate
in a peace agreement signed by the
other Arab countries, then attacked
the Jewish state on its own.

By R.J. SMITH
As part of a concerted drive to place
a capital punishment amendment on
the November 1978 ballot, the Michigan
lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police
(FOP) has pledged to gather 100,000
signatures on circulated petitions.
The State lodge consists of 8,500 law
enforcement officers and is affiliated
with the national FOP, which has 150,000
members.
WITH OVER 100,000 of the 265,000
signatures needed to put the issue on
the ballot already collected by State
Representative Kirby Holmes (R-
Uttica), and with the additional 100,000
signatures promised, spokesmen for
the FOP are optimistic about their
chances for success.
"Whatever the attitudes, we just
want to see the people represented,"
said FOP publicity co-ordinator Dale
Jablonski. "We're doing it because no
one else was willing to put it out on the
line."

The petition calls for the following
amendment to the State Constitution to
be placed on the ballot:
"THE LEGISLATURE shall enact
laws providing for the penalty of death
for those convicted of first-degree mur-
der."
The organization states, however,
that it is not actually endorsing or ad-
vocating the death penalty, but rather
bringing it in front of a public that has
strong feelings about that issue.
Members of the FOP quote statistics
that show 70-75 per cent of the people
polled about capital punishment con-
sider it a "valid point that should be in
effect."
"THE FOP DOES not want to be
tagged as saying, 'Hey, we want capital
punishment'," said co-ordinator
Jablonski. "But we are tired of hearing,
'Doggonit, if we only had this,' or 'If we
only had that.' If it gets passed, there
will be no cheers from the FOP."
However, Legislative Chairman Dale.
Davis pointed out that this neutral

stance may be changing. d
"If there are a significant number of
signatures on the petition, we may re-
evaluate our stance on capital punish-
ment one way or the other," Davis ex-
plained.-
Every member has been given a
petition, and Davis said the strategy
will be to take the petitions to large
gathering places, such as outdoor and
boat shows.

Israel would be safe from attack
under any peace agreement and that
Sadat replied that he has already
promised whatever guarantees Is-
rael wants in the Sinai.
The congresspersons quoted the
Egyptian president as saying he is

Solarz said Sadat replied that if
Israel accepts his insistence that it
withdraw from occupied Arab terri-
tory, "The decision for war or peace
is not a Syrian decision, not a Jordan-
ian decision, but an Egyptian deci-
sion."

Kenworthy related a story about a

leave the city because her husband
found a new job.
"SHE SAID, 'You know I busted

have trouble figuring out what part of
the reality we can accept and what
part we have to change. That is part
of the frustration I have in terms of
the lack of initiative and direction. I
think people know we're good but
they wonder if we're effective.
"I SHARE THAT fear and I think
that's as much a criticism of me as
anyone else.'.'
Kenworthy finds his loss of pa-
tience and perspective disconcerting.
He says by leaving city govern-
ment for now he can regain "a sense
of the reasonableness of most of the
public and clarify again my own
values."
As for aspirations for other politi-
cal offices, Kenworthy says he has
none. "I'm not interested in getting
to the point where people speculate
about what office you'll be running
for next.
"I'm not interested in running for
state representative if Bullard runs
for Senate or some bullshit like that.
I'm very interested in politics but I'm
not interested in it in that way."

SANDALOW is active nationally as
a legal authority, and recently co-
authored a brief on behalf of the
Association of American' Law
Schools that strongly upheld the
practice of using special criteria for
minority admissions at law schools.
The brief has been filed in the U.S.
Supreme Court's Bakke case dealing
with that issue.
"Right now," said Sandalow,
"we're just waiting for the Court's
ruling. The school has long been
committed to take steps within the
law to insure the presence of a sub-
stantial number of qualified minority
students. That has been our policy for
over a decade and I expect that to
continue."
Sandalow said he expects the Law
School faculty will take a long, hard
look at the school's curriculum
within the next few years, particu-
larly in what he termed "skill edu-
cation."
"THERE HAS been arecent inter-
est in training law students in practi-
cal skills such as negotiating, advo-
cacy and counseling," he said. "Such
courses have been offered in the past,
but in a piece-meal fashion. The
faculty will have to decide how to
increase, modify and integrate these
skills into the curriculum, or decide
whether we should be involved in
such training at all."
Sandalow said he also faces the
problem of maintaining the delicate
balance between the number of
in-state and out-state students admit-
ted to the school every year.
