Peanut gallery
Feeding the monkeys seemed to be the intent
of at least one City Council observer Monday
night, who came into council chambers ready for
a real'Barnum and Bailey affair. Plopping down
handfuls of peanuts in front of each councilper-
son's microphone, the, observer simply remarked,
"What's a circus without peanuts?" Maybe it's
time for Mayor Al to come in with a chair and
a whip...

Apathetic about apathy
A Georgia radio station's morning talk show on
public apathy proved its point Monday when only
two calls were received during the entire pro-
gram. "On other topics we have been averaging
20-30 calls aired and probably lots of other at-
tempts," said a radio spokesperson for WALG.
Keep out the boys!
The Girls Scouts of America voted unanimously
to maintain and uphold the solidarity of their or-
ganization - by keeping out the boys. Last year
the Boy Scouts voted to allow girls aged 14 to 21
into their Explorer Division. Girls Scout delegates
and about 2,700 visitors discussed whether their
membership should include boys. But by the clap-
ping and cheering it was obvious from the start
that the idea was doomed. So much for integration.
Testing the tests
The College Entrance Examination Board an-
nounced yesterday that they will begin an investi-
gation into the national decline in the Scholastic
Apitude Test (SAT) scores. Board President Sid-
ney Marland said that the scope of the exami-
nation will range from the nature of the test itself

to broad social conditions affecting education. "At
this time we have no substantial evidence that en-
ables us to attribute the score decline to any
single cause or any particular set of causes," said
Marland. He added that there are four areas of
speculation over the drop in scores; the scientific
nature of the tests themselvgs, the characteristics
of the students taking them, the nature of second-
ary education, and aenergl conditions in society.
And wi*h such a wide choice it could be years
before they come up with an answer.

WASHINGTON- Egypt's President Anwar
Sadat yesterday called for a resumption of
the Geneva Peace Conference with partici-
pation by the Palestine Liberation Organi-
zation (PLO) "as an equal partner."
Sadat emerged from a second round of
talks with President Ford stressing that the
United States held most of the cards in the
quest for Middle East peace and must open
a dialogue with the Palestinian's.
"IF WE are going to achieve any global
solution for this problem (Middle East ten-
sions), it will not be reached without the

Palestinians," Sadat told reporters.
He said he had made Ford aware of his
view that "the United States holds 99 per
cent of the cards of this game" and there-
fore must get together with the Palestin-
ians. The U.S. has withheld recognition
from the PLO because it has not recognized
Israel's existence.
President Ford said last night the U.S.
was exploring every avenue to bring peace
to the Middle East and would not tolerate
stagnation in the negotiations for an over-
all settliment.

DIPLOMATIC sources said Egypt wa
sending formal notification to the Unite
States and the Soviet Union, co-chairme
of the dormant peace conference. Dipl
matic sources said it would take about tw
months to restart the conference if all side
approved. In the meantime, Sadat urge
Ford to have Secretary of State Henry Kis
singer mediate another Israeli withdrawa
on the Syrian front.
"As much as I know," he said, "th

UAC rejects Ky,
Shockley speeches
After more than two hours of disorganized, far-ranging debate,
the University Activities Committee (UAC) Governance Board
voted last night to reject plans to invite former South Vietnamese
Premier Nguyen Cao Ky and self-proclaimed geneticist William
Shockley to speak on campus.
In a 6-5 vote against the controversial Shockley and a 7-4 vote
against Ky, the board upheld an earlier veto of the invitations.
The original plans, proposed by Norman LoPatin, chairman of the
"World Series" lecture program, were first rejected by UAC's
senior officers.

"Democratic primary voters
may have to base their deci-
sions on their perception of who

up to now and who can be ex-

tor," he added.
O'HARA, who lives in Utica
and represents a predominate-
ly white, blue collar district in
suburban Detroit, is serving
his ninth term in the House.

Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor)
has also expressed an interest
in the GOP nomination.
O'HARA said yesterday that
lowering unemployment m the
state would be his first priority
in the Senate. In conjunction, he
added, he would seek a tax re-
duction for the average Ameri-
can family.
O'Hara also declared that
economic stability depends, on
"breaking up the major, oil
companies" - a call that Hart
has often sounded.
