NATURE PROVIDES an anti-

Mediterranean Sea, for the rot
and destruction of Lebanon,
once the prettiest, liveliest and
most modern nation in the Mid-
dle East.j
More than 9,000 persons have
died, mostly in Beirut, in nine
months of Christian- Moslem
warfare. Thatis more than six
times the number killed in
Northern Ireland in four years.,
Murder and looting have re-
placed trade and tourism. Bei-
rut's great hotels are black with
the fires of rocket blasts. At
least a tenth of the 3 million
Lebanese have fled the country,
along with the large colony of
Western businessmen. The econ-
ony is in ruins, losses estimated
at more than $5 billion. Thou-
sands of homes have been loot-
ed, thousands more destroyed.

coalition of Moslem and Chris-

civilian politicians, bringing an
end, at least temporarily, to

Afif Ramadan, a 58-year-old
postal employe, used all his sav-
ings four years ago to buy his
son, Issam, a shop in the Sur-
sock Souk market, a bustling
downtown commercial center.
The souk was destroyed dur-
ing street fighting in October.
"We went there after a while
to carry out what was left and
we didn't even find traces of
burnt merchandise," said Afif.
"This means everything was
stolen even before it was
burned.

In fiscal 1975, the University
accepted 12 contracts for clas-
sified work involving, just over
$1 million, according to Assist-
ant to the Vice-President for
Research Howard Finkbeiner.
Eight years earlier, the Uni-
versity participated in 69 secret
projects costing $12.4 million,
he said.
The big drop in classified re-

general terms, asserting that
the project "was not sinister."
lHE SAID the system would
be used to detect objects in
space but differed from those
presently employed because it
would be more difficult for the
enemy to detect. The electro-
magnetic sensing field produc-
ed by the system would be'
much narrower and a mini-
mum-sized antenna would be
used.
Zorn criticizes the proposal:
in his memo because it "is em-
phasized repeatedly that this
work is highly focused on tac-
tical radars."

Internal Revenue So
to reopen Nixon tax

WASHINGTON (M) - The In-
ternal Revenue Service has re-
opened its investigation of for-
mer President Richard Nixon's
tax returns to determine if he
should be prosecuted for civil
tax fraud, it was reported late
last night.j
An IRS spokesman declined
comment on the reports.
THE WASHINGTON Post said
the IRS now believes it can
show Nixon had prior knowledge
that the deed he used to claim
a tax deduction was illegally
backdated when he donated his
personal papers to the govern-
ment. -I

DURING the final year of his
presidency, Nixon promised to
pay the $148,081, but the Post
said sources indicated he has
not done so. He could not be
forced to pay the deficiency be-
cause the three-year statute of
limitations had expired. How-
ever, no statute of limitations
applies in case of fraud, making
the entire debt payable.
In 1974, Nixon paid $284,706'
in penalties and deficiencies for
illegal deductions on his 1970-72j
returns.j
Nixon received a presidential'
pardon in 1974, but the Post said
it applies only to criminal of-
fenses, and not to civil tax
fraud.
