Israeli, Syrian troops start

By The Associaited Press
Israel announced yesterday that the
long-awaited separation of Syrian and
Israeli troops in the Golan Heights had
begun, and returning war prisoners from
both sides traded charges of maltreat-
ment, including beatings with rubber
hoses, stints in solitary and inadequate
food and medical care.
Israeli tanks, heavy equipment and
even houses were being withdrawn from
Syrian territory captured in last Octo-
ber's Middle East war and from some of
the land held since the 1967 conflict

The 52-yer-old Israeli leader, who took
office Mondtv, said the next step would
have to be taken with Egypt because
"Egypt is the main country in the
Middle East. Without it, no war has
been started against Israel and without
it, no war against Israel has ended.
The rumble of explosions continued
along the front as the departing Israelis
blew up installations and fortification of
potentiali military use.
Sources said the withdrawal would
probably be comnleted ahead of schedule
and noted that the Golan area is more
compact than the Suez front, which
took weeks to evaciate after last Jan-
uarv's trc' there.

John Farley, a coordinator of the local
Farm Workers Support Committee, said
the group chose to picket the Village
Corner over other wine-sellers because
the store sold "a lot of Gallo wine.'
Farley called the store's management
particularly unco-operative with the boy-
cottgrs. He said the store's location at
S. Forest and S. University made it a
convenient meeting place from which to
organize rides to Wrigley's supermarket,
which the group is also picketing.
EMPLOYES INSIDE the s t o r e ob-
served "no drop in sales" during the
picketing and added that Galla wines
were among their least popular. No
Galls wine was seen being sold during
the protest.
One employe who asked not to be
identified said the store wanted to "leave
it to consumer discretion" as t what
wines were bought. Another employe,
however, claimed the workers dis-
couraged shoppers from buying Gallo.
The person in charge of ordering wines
was not present during the picketing.
A CUSTOMER in the store looking
over the wines said "I haven't bought
it (Gallo) all along."
"If I don't buy the wine they are
picketing then shopping here is okay,"
he continued.
Robert Alexander, H u m a n Rights
Party hopeful for state representative,
supported this idea, saying the demon-
stration was not against the store itself,
only the selling of Gallo wine. However,
Phil Carroll, HRP candidate for Con-
gress, said, "I would like to convince
people not to buy anything from the
State Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann Ar-
bor) remarked, "The farm workers are
still fighting the struggle most vorkers
won in the 1930's-4he right to unionize."

A FACT SHEET distributed by the
demonstrators outlined the conditions
under which farm workers live and
claimed the average migrant worker
family has an income of $3,170 and lives

In an effort to cut down on the
University's consutmption and electrical
costs, the Plant Department has begun
a policy of economizing on air condi-
tioning in University buildings.
"We can cut down on a lot of wasted
use of air conditioners and fans without
inconveniencing people," said Zed Kan-
aan, a Plant Department official. "By
making sure that air conditioning is shut
off in buildings when they are unoccup-
ied, and by cutting down on hot air
coming into buildings, we can decrease
power consumption drastically."
AIR CONDITIONING power use will
be further diminished by cooling build-
ings down only to 75 to 78 degrees in-
stead of to the usual 70 degrees. Ac-
cording to Kanaan, "Keeping tempera-
tures below 75 isn't necessary to keep
people comfortable."
President Nixon has asked the nation
not to cool its conditioned air to below
78 degrees.
