If enrollment decreases as predicted,
Fleming said, there will be one-third
less students here over the next few
decades. That, he explained, was why
the University was reluctant to build
new housing. "If there's a 40-year mor-
tgage on a new dorm," he said, "by the
time we're getting the mortgage paid
off, it's empty."
HE HASN'T decided yet when to
leave his job here, Fleming told his
cookie-crunching audience - but it will
be within the next four years.
The climax of the evening was Flem-
ing's acceptance of an "Honorary
Commando" award by Adams residen-
ts who, dressed as comic book super-
heroes, had dropped in on the Flemings
this Halloween and were enthusiastical-
ly received. Mrs. Fleming was given a
group photograph of the superhero stu-
dents in full regalia.
And when the president and his wife
were gone, when the Quaddies were left
to their hoarded cookies, there was
much munching and evaluating going

break with Egypt.
Sadat said Sunday that the Soviet
Union was behind the "rubbish" of
the Tripoli summit and that Egypt
could "punish" the Russians.
OVER THE weekend, it was
reported that Egypt was recalling its
ambassador to Moscow, but there
was no immediate indication wheth-
er Sadat was considering severing
his already cool diplomatic ties with
the Soviet Union.
In Washington, the State Depart-
ment said it would have no immedi-
ate comment on the Egyptian move.
The United States appeared yester-
day to be trying to reclaim the
initiative as a mediator in the Middle
East. U.S. officials in Washington
said Secretary of State Cyrus Vance
would visit Egypt, Israel, Jordan,
Lebanon and Saudi Arabia beginning
this weekend to assess prospects for
a comprehensive settlement.
THEY SAID VANCE might also
visit Syria and that Egypt's mass
cutoff of diplomatic relations would
not affect the trip.
The last such serious break in Arab
ranks occurred in 1971, when Syria
and Egypt broke relations with
Jordan over King Hussein's bloody
expulsion of Palestinian guerrillas
from his country.
The Iraqis, for years Syria's main
Arab rivals, denounced Syrian Presi-
dent Hafez Assad in Tripoli for what
they called his continued faith in
SADAT SO FAR has won the firm
support of only such peripheral Arab
states as Morocco and Sudan.
The break in relations seemed to
indicate Sadat has given up hope of
backing from the "hardline" coun-
tries and instead will try to ally him-
self with Saudi Arabia and Jordan,
which thus far have stayed out of the
furor over his visit to Israel.

set five years ago for 1980, but it re-

ANN ARBOR police reported that the
city was under a red alert, which means
emergency conditions. A police spokes-
man said the roads were "bad and get-

Predictably, the National Weather

snow warnings for yesterday and last.
night. To top things off, the Weather
Service said that Old Man Winter will
let out with a few more sporadic out-
bursts of snow today.
As yesterday's drifts grew deeper
and deeper, the patience of harried
public officials seemed to wear thinner
by the minute. One switchboard opera-

While harried public servants and
motorists tried to put up with yester-
day's snowfall as best they could, one
group of Ann Arborites found delight in
the weather: skiers.
"I LOVE IT when it's like this," said
Natural Resources junior Sue Baker,
"It's good weather for skiing. When it's
slushy it's no good for anything."
Purveyors of skis and other types of
winter merchandise also found a silver
lining behind yesterday's dark clouds.
Bass shoe store employe Rod Lowe said
yesterday's snowfall was at least partly
responsible for his store's brisk
business in boots.
However, Lowe said the store sold
more stock on the day after Thanks-

season. His story was repeated by
