FOWLER predicted the strongest
voter turnout would be in the dorms.
"I just took a tour of the dorms and
they're pretty busy.," he said.

"f don't know what MSA is," said

yesterday. "I've never heard of MSA
at all except now at elections time."
Many older students were equally
naive about the elections.

waterworks are producing water at the

are drinking it, according to Water

"I DON'T really know the differ-

Bob Potter as he mulled over the pos-

the candidates will do either."
LSA senior Greg Jones represents
a minority at the University - he
voted. And not only did he vote
yesterday, but he's voted in every
student government election since he

Middle East conflict
fault of cultural gap,'
Says former reporter
By MICHAEL ARKUSH
Alvin Rosenfeld, former NBC and
Washington Post Middle East corre-
spondent, said Sunday night that
peace in the Middle East will only be
attained when, "the Arabs are ready
to accept Israel as a respectable
entity in that part of the world."
Appearing before a predominantly
Jewish crowd at East Quad, Rosen-
feld described the Middle East
situation as a conflict between two
completely different societies.
"Each side has different motiva-
tions, demands and thought pat-
terns," he said. "This tremendous
cultural gap between these two
nations has been an important factor.
in the problems of past 30 years."

ROSENFELD, who covered the
1967 Six Day Arab-Israeli War for
NBC News, claimed the Arabs turned
to the Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion (PLO) to achieve their goals
after losing the 1967 War.
"After the Arabs lost the war in
1967, they realized that military
means was'not the answer, so they
turned to diplomatic channels. They
poured money into the PLO budget
authorizing a new war of terrorism,"
Rosenfeld said he views the PLO as
an "irresponsible organization devot-
ed to Israel's destruction."
"I don't think the PLO will follow in
the footsteps of other national move-
ments in turning from illegitimacy to
legitimacy. It is just not their
doctrine," he insisted.
In turning to diplomatic channels,
Rosenfeld said he doubts whether the
Arabs have changed their eventual
goal toward the destruction of Israel.
He argued that the Arabs are not
offering "real peace" but just a
temporary end to the state of war.
"The Arabs have talked about a state
of peace but with no future official
ties with Israel," he said.
ROSENFELD SAID he suspects
the Arabs will attempt to move
toward normal diplomatic relations
with Israel after the negotiations.
The former correspondent also
defended Israel's occupation of the
West Bank against critics who claim
Israel has brutally treated the Arab
citizens there. "It has to be one of the
most decent occupations of all time,
Throughout the evening, Rosenfeld
continually attacked the Carter Ad-
ministration for being "very naive in
its Middle East foreign policy."
"This new American administra-
tion fails to understand the moral and
ideological gap between the Western
nations and the Arabs," he said.
Rosenfeld also accused Carter of
being unskilled in foreign affairs.
"Carter is a pleasant man who
makes many mistakes," he said.
In an afternoon interview, Rosen-
feld analyzed the extent of the Ameri-
can Jewish community's role in
"The American Jewish community
has negative strength, meaning it
can help to prevent a disaster but
cannot create American foreign pol-
icy. The government is well aware of
the political minefield it has entered
but, it hasn't changed its general
