southern Lebanon beyond which
Israel has said it will not tol-
erate Syrian troops.
The line is generally taken
to mean Lebanon's Litani Riv-
er. But in deciding whether the
"red line" has been violated, the
Israeli government is expected
to consider such factors as the
size and firepower of any unit
entering the area.
THE ISRAELIS have also
warned against a new buildup
of Palestinian forces in the re-
gion, which served as a spring-
attacks before the Lebanese
war. Because Syria supports the
Palestinian cause, Israel fears
a resurgence of guerrilla activ-
ity if the Syrians take control
of southern Lebanon.
Speaking to reporters during
a visit to the Dead Sea, Peres
said Israel would "continue to
insist upon its red line."
Peres reported on the situa-

secret deliberations on military
and diplomatic crises.

HOW DO THEY FLOAT?
By ELAINE ELSON
Building and racing concrete canoes seems
an unlikely hobby, but students from the Quar-
terdeck Society - an honorary society of the
Naval Architecture School - and the American 1
Society of Civil Engineers' student chapter,
(ASCE), are hunting for a trailer to transport
their concrete crafts to early spring races.
"We do it for fun and to gain practical ex-
perience in designing," says Stuart Cohen,
chairman of Quarterdeck's Concrete C a n o e
Committee. "We design the canoes to float and
COHEN, a Naval Architecture major and
graduating senior, explains why the concrete
canoes don't sink.
"It's Archimedes' Principle," he said. "If
the object displaces more water than it weighs,
then it will float. Water is 62.4 lbs. per cubic
foot. So if something is one foot on a side and
weight 60 lbs., it doesn't matter what it is
made out of - feathers, steel, pressed saw-
dust. If it holds together, it will float."
The American Concrete Institute (ACI), has
sanctioned these annual races for six years and
will do so again for this year's late April to
early May race. -
