Esmail trial begins; stirs rally

Who's getting screwed?
Even when the Ann Arbor City Council isn't dealing with the sensi-
tive pornography issue, the council members still can't seem to keep
sex off their minds. With a Freudian slip, Third Ward Republican
Ronald Trowbridge was arguing that the new human rights ordinance
might inadvertently ban single-sex sports teams. "The ones who are
really getting screwed by this are the women," Trowbridge said.
Whereupon a moan could be heard throughout the Council chambers.
Baboons lose support
The "Committee to Save the Baboon Seven" will apparently make
no further attempts to save the animals from death in University
research projects. The group had successfully blocked the use of
baboons in an auto crash study last month, but now says it has no plans
to rescue the animals from a new kind of death in another University
laboratory. Six of the "Baboon Seven" were spared when the Highway
Safety Research Institute agreed to stop using them in its crash study.
But now the physiology department wants to use the primates in a
study of hypertension. Committee spokesman Rev. Irwin Gaede said.
his group is not against the current tests. "We're not opposed to all ex-
perimentation with animals," Gaede explained. "In many cases it's
needed for the study of disease. But when it comes to a man-made
problem, such as the automobile, then it becomes an unnecessary
waste of animal life."

TEL AVIV, Israel (UPI) - A Pales-
tinian-American arrested on a tip from
the FBI went on trial yesterday on
charges of contact with an extremist
Arab guerrilla group.
"He was broken psychologically,"
said attorney Felicia Langer, who is
representing New York-born Sami
Esmail at his trial on charges that are

Esmail, 23, was arrested at Ben-
Gurion airport Dec. 21 and charged
with belonging to a hostile organization
and making contact with agents of the
Popular Front for the Liberation of
Palestine in Michigan and Libya.
MSU activists in East Lansing began
an all-night vigil Monday on the eve of
Esmail's trial.

'We have serious reservations over whether he'll get a
fair trial. We basically think Israel doesn't have the
right to try someone under the laws of their country
for alleged activities committed outside of Israel.'
-Rick Green,
MSU activist

"We have serious reservations over
whether he'll get a fair trial," Green
"WE BASICALLY think Israel
doesn't have the right to try someone
under the laws of their country for
alleged activities committed outside of
Israel," he said.
Green said there have been reports
that the FBI provided information to
Israeli authorities about Esmail.
It all adds
* - 7

One of the charges against Esmail is
that he underwent training at a
terrorist camp in Libya during the
summer of 1976, but Green said his sup-
porters have signed affidavits from
about 20 persons that Esmail was not in
Libya at that time.
A Michigan State professor and
departmental secretary have flown to
Tel Aviv to testify as character wit-
nesses on Esmail's behalf. Esmail was
an honors student in electrical
