Under new management
The old gives way to the new starting with
today's issue of The Daily. Our editorial staff has
elected Rob Meachum and Bill Turque Co-Editors-
in-Chief for the coming year. Rounding out the
senior staff will be Managing Editor Jeff Ris-
tine, Executive Editor Tim Schick, and Editorial
Director Stephen Hersh. The old guard won't be
fading away entirely, however, as outgoing Man-
aging Editor Jeff Sorensen and Co-Editor-in-Chief
Cheryl Pilate move over to helm the Arts and
Entertainment Page and the Sunday Magazine
respectively. We wish them all the best of luck.
They'll need it.
Bomb scare
Residents of Markley were jolted from the calm
of a lazy Sunday afternoon when city police re-
ceived a call announcing the existence of a bomb
somewhere in the dorm. Although it was a false
alarm, evacuating residents were seen fleeing with
their most prized possessions. One student left his
$3000 stereo system in his room but took along his
honors thesis. Must be a matter of priorities, we

made the small Pennsylvania town whose name
he bears famous, emerged from his electrically
heated burrow and saw his shadow-assuring us
of winter for six more weeks. As if we needed

there be enough toilets in Philadelphia this sum-

mer? "We'll have enough to meet the crowds,"
says William Rafsky, head of Philadelphia '76, the
organization planning the city's celebration. A
check revealed that the city had only 380 public
toilets in its historic area, not enough to handle the
expected 10 to 20 million visitors. So, last week,
Philadelphia '76 announced it would be taking
bids for 3 trailer facilities containing 20 toilets
each. Consideringrthe popnlarity of the song "Phil-
adelnhia Freedom," maybe they could call the
toilets Elton Johns.

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y.-Daniel Moyni-
han, America's outspoken Ambassador to
the United Nations yesterday submitted
his resignation to President Ford so that
he can return to Harvard University.
He submitted his resignation only 6%
months after he presented his credentials.
In that short time, he got more attention and
created more controversy than had many of his
predecessors in two or three years.
HE TALKED back to critics of the United
States with scorn or wit that often outraged Third
World diplomats, dismayed some Western Euro-
peans and delighted a large section of the
American public.
Nudged by the feeling that he was not getting
enough support from Washington, he twice took
v Y initiatives that won him endorsements from Pres-
ident Ford and Secretary of State Henry Kis-
In November, he withdrew a threat to resign
and last week he sent a controversial cablegram
to Kissinger and all U.S. embassies claiming
that conservative diplomats in the State Depart-
ment opposed his campaign to crack the anti-
American bloc at the United Nations.
THE AMBASSADOR, who was on leave from
Harvard, said in his letter of resignation to
President Ford that "it is time to return to
In a letter of reply, Ford accepted Moynihan's
resignation "with the deepest regret and re-
luctance," declaring that the ambassador had
"asserted our position forcefully, cogently and
honestly" at the United Nations.
Moynihan, 49, and standing 6 feet 5 inches, is
a broad-shouldered diplomat with a ruddy, baby
face and a floppy shock of white hair.
HE WAS BORN in Tulsa, Okla., but moved to
se New York City with his parents when he was 6
years old. When his father walked out on the
I family in 1938, young Moynihan peddled news-
papers, shined shoes and later tended bar in his
mother's saloon on 42nd Street at Times Square.
A liberal intellectual who earned his Ph.D. at
Tufts University, Moynihan has been involved in
AP Photo his share of controversies through the years,
which have seen him serve in various posts under
Presidents Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon.
Ringling HE SERVED President Nixon as a presidential
Jackson- counselor and then, in 1972, as Ambassador to
While working as a presidential counselor he
wrote a memo that the race problem in the
United States could benefit from a period of
"benign neglect."
In 1965, he was embroiled in controversy when,
working in the Labor Department in the Johnson
administration, he was the chief architect of a
report entitled "The Negro Family, the Case for
National Action."

PLO will be

CAIRO (Reuter)-President Anwar Sadat said
in an interview yesterday that he had tacit agree-
ment from the United States to recognize the
Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).
In an interview with the Lebanese weekly
magazine Al-Hawadess, published by the Cairo
daily newspaper Al-Ahram, President Sadat said
he had "more than a pledge from the United
States to recognize the Palestine Liberation
Organization, but I am not in a position to
reveal it."
THE EGYPTIAN President said the Syrians
fomented the recent civil war in Lebanon by
supplying arms to the combatants, though the
Lebanese were primarily to blame because their
leaders were too busy looking after their personal

Lebanese Christian militia
stocks new arms for war

By The Associated Press
BEIRUT, Lebanon-The lead-
er of Lebanon'stmain Christian
militia said yesterday he is im-
porting new arms because an-
other round of civil war is in-
evitable unless radical Pales-
tinians and Lebanese are "'beat-
en down."
"Now and tomorrow and the
day after tomorrow, as long as
we are obliged to defend our-
selves, we will buy arms for
ourselves," P h a 1 a n g e party
chieftain Pierre Gemayel said
in an interview with the Asso-

ciated Press.
"WE WOULD be imbeciles if
we did the opposite."
Gemayel's party fields the

DETROIT - Elderly women
in outrageous fur coats and sun-
glasses, occasionally calling out
"Shalom!" waddled majestically
down the corridors in the wake
of flocks of schoolboys wearing
skullcaps and awed expressions.
Over 30 police officers sat
hunched around a table behind
a half-closed door. Outside the
room, waitresses in blue uni-
forms and white aprons saun-

fires when both sides rearmed.
GEMAYEL praised Syrian at-
tempts to mediate in the con-
flict, but he said they were "use-
less" unless the government re-
gains enough power to crush the
far left by force.
The 70 - year - old Phalangist
leader, his graying hair slicked
back 1920's style, spoke in his
office in "Phalange House" just
off Beirut's battle-scarred Mar-
tyrs Square. Bullet holes were
visible in the windows and fresh
concert covered a foot-wide gap
left by an artillery shell that
pierced the wall.
"It is necessary - first, first,
first-that the state regain con-
trol of security and take back
its sovereignty," he said. "As
long as there is no authority, I
don't know how this country is
going to make it.
"JUNBLATT and those who
are behind Junblatt destroyed
this country morally, and they
destroyed it physically by break-
ing its spine," Gemayel said.
"Well, now the terrain is open
to them.
"We are perhaps at the sixth
round now. They have seen we
aren't knocked out yet. They
think there hasn't been enough
misfortune, that there hasn't
been enough destruction. They
find the country still on its feet,
they are still trying to break it."
