Nixon arrives in Saudi Arabia
JIDDA, Saudi Arabia (A') -
King Faisal welcomed Presi-
dent Nixon to his oil-rich king-
dom yesterday with a warm em-
brace and a warning that there
can be no permanent Arab-Is-
raeli peace until Israel gives
Jerusalem back to the Arabs.
Nixon arrived to a subdued
but friendly reception by a
moderately large crowd of Sau-
dis after the cheering and ju-
bilation of a two-day visit to
Egypt. Before his departure yes-
terday from Cairo, Nixon said
the United States is prepared to
help Egypt develop nuclear
power for peaceful uses.

tioned Rolls-Royce to zip, Nixon
New freshmen come
to summer orientation
from the airport to the guest
palace where the President will
stay. They drove at about 65
miles per hour through the
dusty streets of Jidda, applaud-
ed by sidewalk crowds of
about 5,000. The two leaders
then discussed international is-
sues for about 30 minutes.
Later, speaking at a state
dinner in the ballroom of the
royal palace, Faisal became
the second Arab leader in three
days to press Nixon publicly for
a more active U. S. role in re-
solving long - standing Middle
President Anwar Sadat of
Egypt suggested on Wednesday
that the United States do more
to help determine the future of
the 3 million Palestinians dis-
placed in Israel's independence
war in 1948.
"WE BELIEVE that there will
never be a lasting peace in the
area unless Jerusalem is liber-
ated and returned to Arab sov-
ereignty, unless there is libera-

Of a group of future freshmen
interviewed Thursday, around 80
per cent were pre-med.
For Zalenski, who is diabetic,
research is the ultimate goal in
taking pre-med courses. He says
he is "plenty worried" about
the competition, but notes,

which accompany a medical de-

Joe S e n k o, an orientation
leader and former pre-med as-
pirant, said he "kind of took on
the role as pre-med counselor"
for the freshmen in order to
caution them about crowding in

Telfer says an important part
of orientation is that freshmen
can meet other p e o p l e who
share their academic interests.
Freshmen can socialize at mass
counselling meetings and make
friends who may turn up in
their classes, she claims.
Most importantly, Telfer says,
the freshmen are not rushed
during orientation. "They have
three days to look over the time
schedule and talk to current
students and counselors," she

Both Barquist and Senko are

how they seem semi-traumatic,"
Senko said. "It sort of puts you
back a few years."
