Fizzle
About 20 people rallied on the diag yesterday
at noon, protesting the covert presence of CIA re-
cruiters on campus. The demonstration was spon-
sored by the Revolutionary Student's Brigade
(RSB). Don Alexander, RSB member and a speak-
er atatherally ,attributed thessparse turnout to
the fact that "not too many students are being
screwed by the system now. They haven't found
out that the system is rotten." Alexander added
that the right of the American people to be free
outweighs the right of an individual to join the
CIA, "which was designed solely for the purpose
of denying people their rights."

Say it ain't so
Outgoing CIA Director William Colby has, for
what it is worth, denied that his agency had
manipulated Reuters new stories, as was alleged
in a draft report of the House Intelligence Com-
mittee. Reuters is a British-based news agency
used by many U.S. papers, including The Daily.
"We have no manipulation and no management of
Reuters news," Colby said yesterday. The com-
mittee report said CIA had acknowledged planting
news articles in foreign newspapers and with news
agencies. Colby said this was an example of the
committee taking "a side reference and making
a major statement of it. Colby called it "a purely
hypothetical example put when we were discuss-
ing the difference between American news media
and foreign news media, and someone else used
the example of Reuters."

Oh Henry
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger once de-
scribed Egyptian President Anwar Sadat as "a
fool, a clown, and a buffoon," according to a still
unpublished book by an Israeli journalist. A story
in yesterday's Chicago Sun-Times said it had ob-
tained portions .of the book entitled, "From Con-
frontation to Disengagement," by Matti Golan, a
diplomatic reporter for the Israeli newspaper
Haaretz. The Sun-Times says the book was re-
portedly repressed on direct orders from Israeli
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, but that a rewrit-
ten version has since been cleared with Israeli
censors. Kissinger is quoted as telling former Is-
raeli Prime Minister Golda Meir: "Who is Sadat?
We all thought he was a fool, a clown. A buffoon
who goes to the stage every other day to declare
war."

A British electronics firm hopes it can lure the
Loch Ness monster into view with an extreme-
ly seductive sonar signal. Videomaster Ltd. has
been testing a new sonar device in the Scottish
lake since last August, and a spokesman said the

scanning beams have produced readings that may
or may not. be. those of the legendary monster.
"This signal may act as a sexual stimulant,"
said test director Bryan King. "We beamed Beet-
hoven's Fifth into a river and it brought some
small fish to the surface," he explained. But whe-
ther the monster gets off on string quartets or
rock 'n' roll will not he known for some time, since
the sound used at first would be very high fre-
quencv, like a dog whistle. Sir Peter Scott, director
of the Loch Ness investigation bureau, doesn't
like any of it. "Or ingen'itv should be good
enough to find ot i" it is there without interfering
with the monster," he said.

De

Crow
NO W

By ANNEMARIE SCHIAVI
Karen De Crow, president of the National Organization for
Women, defended her organization's deepening involvement in the
national and local political arenas.
"They call it radical, but political action is one of the best
ways of working within the system," De Crow told a crowd of
over 500 at Hill Aud. yesterday.
HER SPEECH was the first in the series of Future Worlds
lectures this term.
De Crow, a lawyer and author of two books on feminism,
assumed the NOW presidency in 1974.
Under her leadership, the once-moderate feminist organiza-
tion has taken an active role in lobbying for such issues as gay
rights, guaranteed employment, abortion and the equal rights
amendment.
"TARGETING your political foes is about the scariest thing
you can do to them," asserted De Crow. She noted NOW's grow-
ing "clout" among political candidates as a result of its new
thrust.
"Almost all of the presidential hopefuls have approached me
-they want NOW to endorse them, they want to put our names

efends role
12 politics
on their letterheads," she said.
"Only four years ago at the Miami convention they ((the can-
diates) didn't even know who we were," she added.
Although some contend that NOW's outspoken political posi-
tions have divided and depleted the membership, De Crow dis-
agrees.
"MY FEELING is that there is no split in NOW, we have more
members than ever. But if you have 70,000 members who are by
definition feisty, then they aren't all going to agree," she said.
NOW is attempting to broaden its base of support beyond
middle class, often politically conservative, white women, assert-
ed De Crow.
"There is no conflict of interest between people who are dis-
criminated against racially and those who experience sex dis-
crimination," she claimed. "Feminists and minorities must band
together against the white male establishment which is throwing
only a few crumbs (jobs) in our direction."
BUT DE CROW welcomed the non-traditional males "who
want to become feminists" into NOW.
"Male and female separatism is not desirable, I consider
such things as all women banks or law firms part of a transi-

factions

WASHINGTON tAf) - The
House voted overwhelming-
ly yesterday to halt further
U.S. aid to two Western-
backed factions fighting in
Angola, and a White House
spokesman said the action
"can only result in serious
harm to the interests of the
United States."
Prior to the 323-99 vote,
President Ford had sent a
letter to House Speaker Carl
Albert asking that the aid
not be cut off. Albert spoke
forcefully on the floor in
favor of the cut off.
AFTER THE v o t e, White
House Press Secretary Ron Nes-
sen said in a statement which
he reported had been approved
by the President:
"The Congress has stated to
the world that it will ignore a
clear cut Soviet - Cuban ex-
pansion by brute military force
into areas thousands of miles
from either country."
Nessen said Ford regrets the
vote which he said prohibits the
use of funds in the defense ap-
propriations bill to assist the
people of Angola in resisting
Soviet - Cuban intervention in
their country.
THE SENATE earlier ap-
proved the prohibition that
came in the form of an amend-
ment to a $112.3 billion defense
appropriation bill.
Nessen said the President is
considering two options to try
to revive aid for the Angolan
factions. These are to veto the
bill in an effort to force Con-
gress to reconsider its decision,
or to send up separate legisla-
tion cutting the Angola issue
away from the defense appro-
priations bill, which "may be
with different language that will
give the Congress more flexi-
bility."
In a letter to House Speaker
Carl Albert, delivered moments
before the House vote on a bill
to end future aid, the President
said that "failure of the United
States to take a stand will in-
evitably lead our friends and

supporters to
our resolve"
conflicts.

conclusions about
over international

ALBERT, however, said the
Uiited States was not prepared
to match the huge Soviet and
Cuban support for its Angolan
faction and Congress should
thereforeacut-off U.S. involve-
ment.
"This is a typical Ford opera-
tion: Wave your hand, make a
gesture and that's the end of
it," Albert told reporters.
"One thing about foreign aid,
military aid or war itself: you
either dotenough or you're bet-
ter off not doing anything," Al-
bert said.
THE ANGOLA aid cut-off was

attached to a $112.3 billion 5-
m o n t h defense appropriation
bill. The White House has given
no indication whether F o r d
might veto the bill to try to
force Congress to reconsider.
The Senate earlier voted 54 to
22 to prohibit further aid. The
cut-off applies only to some $28
million earmarked in the bill
for Angola but congressional
staff experts said the effect
would be to cut-off all U.S. aid.
Meanwhile, western-supported
troops w e r e reported under
heavy attack by Soviet-backed
forces in their central Angolan
stronghold yesterday. They were
also reported to be clashing
among themselves.

IIEW FUNDING BILL:
House o-ver-ridsveto

WASHINGTON U/P) - The
House voted 310 to 113 yester-
day to override president Ford's
veto of a $45 billion bill to fund
labor, health, and welfare pro-
grams, giving Democrats an
early victory in their election-
year drive against Ford's econ-
omy proposals.
The override issue now shifts
to the Senate, which tentatively
plans to vote today. Democrats
in that chamber were optimis-
tic.
FORD vetoed the bill Dec. 19
because it was nearly $1 billion
above his budget recommenda-
tions. He called it "a classic
example of . . . unchecked
spending."~
The Grote came only six days
after the President submitted
his budget of the next fiscal
year, urging Congress to hold
to a tight $394.2 billion spending
ceiling.
Republicans nleaded for the
veto to he sustained as an indi-
c-tion of Congress' intention to
show restraint on the new bud-

Democratic leaders only
hours before the vote were tell-
ing reporters they had only a
fighting chance to override. But
when the showdown came, 49
Republicans joined 261 Demo-
crats to provide a margin 28
above the two-thirds needed to
override. Voting to sustain the
veto were 92 Republicans and 21
Democrats.
BOTH sides agreed that this
veto would be one of the most
difficult for Republicans to sus-
tain. The bill funds a variety of

politically appealing programs,
including maternal and child
health care, research on sever-
al major diseases, nutrition pro-
grams for the aged, vocational
rehabilitation and the commun-
ity services undertakings that
are the remnants of President
Lyndon Johnson's War on Pov-
erty.

Republican and conservative

ed a compromise that would
See HOUSE, Page 8

WASHINGTON (P)-The Sen-
ate, ignoring the arguments of
liberal Democrats, confirmed
former Republican party Chair-
man George Bush as the fourth
man in three years to head the
CIA.
Bush, selected by President
Ford to succeed career intelli-
gence officer William Colby,
was confirmed yesterday by a
64-27 vote. Only one Republican,
Sen. Jesse Helms of North Caro-
lina, voted against him.
THE SIX Democratic mem-
bers of the Senate intelligence
committee, which has spent al-
most a year investigating the
CIA,all opposed Bush. Sen. Lo-
well Weicker (R-Conn.) said he
could not vote to confirm a man
of Bush's political past to head
such a sensitive agency, and
voted present.
Senate intelligence chairman
Frank Church (D-Idaho), Bush's
most vocal opponent, argued
that "the strongly partisan, po-
litical background of George

him as the new head of the
CIA despite objections from
liberals that his "strongly
partisan" background makes
him unqualified for the post.
