The United States is in a "major
foreign policy phase" of trade-offs in its
relationships with the Middle East, said
a University professor, who recently
returned from a conference in Israel.
Political Science Prof. Raymond
Tanter noted that "there is a rhythm in
American foreign policy." Tanter ad-
ded that currently "Israel is taking its
lumps, and will continue to do so until a
major watershed," or event, occurs.
TANTER, WHO attended various
conferences in Israel ranging fom a
meeting with Hebron Mayor Faid
Kawasma to a conference on the Role of
Islam in the Politics of the Western
World, said such conferences are held
in June and July in Israel every year.
Tanter dubbed the subject of the
meeting with Hebron's mayor the
"Moderation Theme." He noted that in
1976 when he spoke with Kawasma, who
has many Palestine Liberation
Organization (PLO) supporters, the
mayor was anti-Israel, hut during.
recent years Kawasama views ap-
peared to become more moderate.
Tanter explained that, to the -PLO,
moderation is basically a non-existent
concept. Tanter said the PLO believes
in the destruction of Israel. The dif-
ference lies in whether the state should
be destroyed all at once, or little by lit-
THE PROFESSOR attributed
Kawasma's shift of belief to his "lear-
ning to operate under Israel. Kawasma
has a more positive view of Israel,"
Tanter said, adding that Kawasma also

UNIVERSITY POLITICAL Science Prof. Raymond Tanter analyzed the situation in the Mideast yesterday after
returning from a visit to Israel. During his stay he attended several conferences concerning the political circum-
stances surrounding the country and its neighbors.

has been spotted in various places around town, and
it reads something like this: "The four-day event,

Bucks for Buckeye memories
The turf at Ohio State University's (OSU)
stadium is being replaced this summer at a cost of
$500,000. So OSU officials came up with a gimmick
to defray the expense of the new 50,000 square foor
- carpet-they're selling the old turf for five bucks
(no punintended) a square foot, $25 a square yard,
and up. "It's a great opportunity for Buckeye
students and alumni to own a piece of Buckeye
history," said Dan Heinlen, OSU director of alumni
affairs. The sale of the turf that saw stars such as
Rex Kern, Archie Griffin, and Tom Cousineau
begins Aug. 11 on a first come, first serve basis.
Heinlen said he expects an "enthusiastic response,
the same kind of response you'd get if you did the
same thing in your stadium." Very unconfirmed,
facetious rumors indicate any surplus money from
the sale will go into the Woody Hayes Retirement

On the outside
Some Ann Arbor residents are praying for rain,
and it looks like they'll get it today. It'll be muggy
again, although the temperature will be cooler,
hovering around the 80:' mark. There will be patchy
fog in the morning, and showers and thunder-
showers are likely. The low will be in the mid-60s.
