U.N. peacekeepers occupy
Golan Heights buffer zone

SGC denies
theater space
to film groupn.
By DAVID BLOMQUIST
The Student Organizations Board of
Student G avernment Council last night
refused to approve Friends of Newsreel's
request for auditorium space for July
and August movie showings.
Board chairman Elliot Chikofsky and
member Chuck Meibeyer voted to table
the student film group's applications for
Modern Language Bldg. theaters pending
the outcome of the board's investigation
into alleged Newsreel fiscal "irrespon-
sibility."
THE BOARD did, however, approve
space applications from all four other
major campus film organizations--
Cinema It, Ann Arbor Film Co-op, New
World Media, and Cinema Guild.
Calvin Luker, director of student or-
ganizations, disagreed with the Board's
actions. "We work on the principle that
everyone is innocent until proven guilty'"
Luker said. "We have an obligation to
treat Newsreel as any other film group."
Luker serves as moderator of the
board but has no vote in matters that
cose before it.
CHIKOFSKY announced that a check
by the Registrar's Office of the mem-
bership list Newsreel submitted at the
board's last meeting revealed that 19
of the group's 37 members-or 51 per
cent-were not University students.
SGC regulations stipulate that at least
50 per cent of the membership of
student organizations must be currently
registered students.
In other business, the board voted
to postpone until'its next meeting a
petition for recognition by Students' Con-
temporary Arts Guild, a proposed stu-
dent film group, because the organiza-
tion's chairperson was not present.

B The Associated Pre
United Nations peacekeepers moved
into the Golan heights buffer zone be-
tween Syria and Israel yesterday to
patrol the cease-fire and troop di-
engagement agreements.
The Canadian Iefense Minisiry said
150 Canadian soldiers had set ip camp
in the destroyed Syrian city of Quneitra
hours after Syrian and Israei negotiat-
ing teams in Geneva signed a plan for
withdrawal uo troops from the front
where an artillery war rageJ tor t81 days
this spring.
THE ANNOUNCEMENT sd the Ca-
adians, drawn from the U.N. force in
the Sinai Desert, traveled in a 40-vehicle
convoy the 440 miles to Quneitra with a
seven-hour rest stop at Tibeus di GAi-
lee.
Under the cease-fire agreement signed
last Friday, the United Na'ions se' up
the 1,250-man peace force that includm
the Canadian support unit, Perv an and
Austrian battalions, a Polish trausporta-
tion platoon and 11 other observers in
the buffer zone.
U.N. sources said the first 500 men
reached Quneitra yesterday The force
is to become operational today.
AS THEY took ip their positions, th
situation on the Syrian side was s' relax
ed that Syrian gunners wheeled their ar-
tillery pieces into a stream and could be
seen splashing bucketfuls of water on
them to wash out the grime of battle.
Syrian farmers who ventured into their
orchards and fields for the first time
stopped their harvest to ap;plaud and
cheer as the U.N. units rumbled by.
On the Israeli side, soldiers dynamited
military installations they had set ip in
territory captured in last October's war
that will be returned to Syria under the
Geneva accords. Tank ':arriers hauled
away damaged tanks, trucks aid person-
nel carriers abandoned by the Syrians
in the latter stages of the war.
THE OPERATION was similar to one
carried out early this year on evacuation
from the Sinai front where no military
equipment or fortifications were left in
usable condition for the Egypians
In Haifa, Israel's new female political
star, Shulamit Aloni, made her first
appearance as a government minister
and urged that the new government of
Premier Yitzhak Rabin give back cap-
tured Arab territory.
"Whoever does nt want Israel tic be-
come another Northern Iretsnd, Cyprus
or Soth Africa rust he prepaedIn
give up Nablus and Hebron," on the
west bank of the Jordan River, Aloni
said. The contries she etcesred to are
plagued with atise anigvsiem n er-
ril activities.
IN HIS last day of seven years as de-
fense minister, Moshe Dayan predicted
in Tel Aviv that no matter what the
government does, Israel faces continued
terrorist activities. He told a farewell
party that Israel would have to find the
"golden path" between insisting upon its
needs and defying external pressures.
U.N. Secretary-General Kurt Wald-
him arrived in Jerusalem ansI discussed
with Israeli and U.N. officials the steps
toward peace in the Middle East. Is-
reli officials said Waldheim sold go
to Jordon today.

If television commercials can be believed, sooner or later we're all going to
be riding motorcycles to work. In that case, this Florida window washer ap-
pears to have already joined the future. He loaded his bucket, brushes, and
ladder on the back of his bike, and headed off for work down Miami's Bis-
cayne Boulevard yesterday.

Discipline, tracking mark
school bd. election focus

By JEFF SORENSEN
Over the past five years, racial tension
and violence in the city's schools has
led conservative community members
to call for tighter discipline policies,
Liberal and radical citizens, on the
other ,and, attribute school disturbances
.o the school's failure to provide the
services required by individual students,
THIS PHILOSOPHICAL division is the
basis of a major controversy among 11
candidates seeking three Board of Edu-
cation seats in next Monday's elections.
Most conservative candidates call for
stricter enforcement of the school disci-
pline code, and in addition support the
tracking system used at city junior highs
and high schools, although they admit
the system has some drawbacks.
Liberal and radical candidates con-
tend that the tracking system, which
separates students on the basis of aca-
demic performance, funnels blacks and
low income students into the bottom
track.
REPUBLICAN-BACKED conservatives
Wendy Barhydt, Stanley Bielby and
Peter Wright all take hard lines on dis-
cipline.
"High ideals can only be achieved in
schools providing a safe and healthy

environment," Barhydt says. "Students
cannot live, learn and excell in a hos-
tile atmosphere."
Last year, the conservative-dominated
school board created Roberto Clemente
School as an "alternative school for dis-
ruptive youth." Designed to provide spe-
cial education to students who cause
disciplinary problems, the school now
offers an alternative for drop-outs.
ALL CANDIDATES supported continu-
ation of Roberto Clemente, although

most liberal candidates say they fear
that the school could be used to dis-
criminate against blacks and low income
students.
In line with their reservations about
allegedly "separate but eq u a l" pro-
grams, liberal and radical candidates
call the tracking system a potentially
discriminatory mechanism.
student input into school policy has
caused hostility and frustration.
