Egyptians accused of
JERUSALEM (tea - Israel accused the Egyptians yesterday of
violating the fragile Middle East cease-fire by deploying Soviet mis-
siles closer to the Suez Canal and demanded that the United States
move for their withdrawal.
There were hints that Israel might postpone appointment of a
delegate to Mideast peace talks if the missiles are not pulled back.
.Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, speaking in the Knesset parlia-
ment in answer to urgent questions raised following .the reports of
the missile movements, said the alleged action was "of serious mili-
Dayan charged the Egyptians had thus violated a "key clause"
of the cease-fire the first night it went into effect.
Dayan said Israel had turned to Washington and demanded the
missiles be withdrawn to their previous position. This demand, he
said, is now in the discussion stage between Jerusalem and Wash-
Envoys from both Israel and Egypt called on the State Depart-
ment in Washington Thursday, and a U.S. spokesman, asked about
Dayan's charge, said, "We're still looking into the matter." He also
said the development should not retard U.N. peace efforts.
The Israelis were reported reluctant to agree to the U.S.-spon-
sored cease-fire because of fears that the Egyptians and Russians
would use the 90-day lull to redeploy the antiaircraft weapons closer
to the canal.
If this was done, the Israelis said, the deterrent strike capability
of their air force would be dangerously curtailed.
Dayan said that the Americans bore a "heavy responsibility be-
cause they offered this agreement on cease-fire and stressed the
standstill had Soviet consent."
He said Israel would also take its missile complaint to the United
Nations, where U.N. peace envoy Gunnar Jarring is attempting to
hammer out preliminary ground rules for peace talks.

"If we didn't live together, there would be no (White Pan-
ther) party," Lenni Sinclair says. "Building a new life culture
is what the party is all about."
The White Panther party has been living communally since
it started in 1968. Prior to that the party founders-John and
Lenni Sinclair and Pun and Genie Plamundon-had lived to-
gether with the MC5 in Detroit.
In 1968 the Detroit group moved to Ann Arbor and the
White Panther party was founded. In Sept., 1969 they moved
into the house they now occupy on Hill St. Half the house was
already occupied by the "Up"-a local rock band--but when the
White Panthers moved in, the walls dividing the house into
separate halves were knocked out and the "Up" members were
assimilated into the party.
All the party members sem to feel that communal living
is essential to the party. "We're living a culture revolution," Ken
Kelley, says, "We know that separation is doom."
Twenty-five people live together in the house on Hill St.
that also serves as the White Panther party headquarters and
the office for Sundance magazine.
Responsibility for cleaning and cooking is assigned on a
rotating basis, but everyone casually chips in to help do the
work-including the care and feeding of the commune's five

clair predicts, "It's artificial to live with just yourself and a few
