By The Associated Press-
It's a city where friends run
the gamut of emotions when
they meet, and pickpockets
tell bus 'passengers a scorpion is
on the loose so that they can
ply their trade undisturbed.
Cairo, the capital of Egypt,
bears the imprint of many
foreign conquerors, but the
dominant influence is from the
East.
"Two friends meet on the
street, and the greeting be-
comes a playlet of dialogue,"
Williams Ellis wrote in the
May issue of the National Geo-
graphic magazine.
"Embraces, kisses, the laying
on of benedictions, clinical re-
ports on current ailments and
finally adjournment to the near-
est cafe for coffee," he adds.
In one section of the city
some 200,000 persons mass in
the central marketplace every
morning to haggle with ven-
dors over fruits and vegeta-
bles. Motor vehicles and don-
key carts push slowly through
the milling crowds brushing
pedestrians. Men and women
with bundles balanced on their
heads dart through the crowds
looking for an opening.
More than five million Egyp-
tians, or about 15 per cent of
the country's 34 million persons,
live in Cairo, crowding the
cafes. Good jobs are scarce and
housing is at a premium.
"I met one man with a re-
cently acquired degree in en-
gineering who makes a living
checking manhole covers to see
if they are in place," said El-
lis, "For many others the only
choice is to take up a stamp-
and-ink-pad station in a gov-
ernment office:
Poverty is widespread, but
few people go hungry and the
city's strong Islamic traditions
hold major crime to a mini-
mum
But when a crime is commit-
ted, it is usually carried out
with style. A group of pickpock-
ets recently boarded a bus and
spread a rumor that scorpions
were loose in the vehicle. In
the ensuing uproar they re-

Sandbags still stacked in

Free concert
The Community Parks Pro-
gram in conjunction with t h e
Tribal Council will present its
sixth free concert of the series
on Sunday, July 23. The concert
will be held on the Otis Spann
Memorial Field next to Huron
High School on Fuller Road.
The bands playing this Sun-
day will be the Up, the Get Down
Party Band, the Wet Nasties,
and the Wild Boys. Each band
will play a forty-five minute set.
The concert will last from 2:00
until 6:00 p.m.
Natural foods, fruit, and fruit
juices will be sold by the Tribal
Council's food committee. Water
and toilets are at the site.
The concerts are now being
broadcast live on WNRZ/WNRS
FM and AM from 3:00 until 6:00
p.m.
As there is limited parking
space available, the Community
Parks Program asks people at-
tending the concerts to please
cut down on the number of cars
by coming in groups. As the
summer progresses this is be-
coming more and'more of a con-
cern to the committee.
People bringing their dogs are
asked to keep their dogs under
control. There have been a few
problems with strays and vis-
cious dogs running loose.
