Egypt affirms truce, but
Libya reports fighting
CAIRO (M) - Egypt declared yesterday that a cease-fire
ordered by President Anwar Sadat in the Egyptian-Libyan feud
was holding firm and denied a Libyan report of continued fighting
at a desert oasis.
:"No military operations took place inside Libyan territory or
on the Egyptian-Libyan border after the cease-fire went into effect
at 9 p.m. Sunday," a military " spokesman in Cairo said. "Our
forces are strictly observing the cease-fire order."
IN ROME, LIBYAN Ambassador Kadri El Atrash told a news
conference fighting was still going on at the Al Kufra oasis, nearly
110 miles inside Libya, with Egyptian-paratroopers trying to oc-
cupy the area.
He also said Libyan forces routed Egyptian paratroopers from
ing into the desert. Al Jaghbub is 20 miles inside Libya.

Throughout her 83 years, Ann
Bonar has been firmly opposed
to war. But don't let that fool
you. Bonar, a retird social
worker, is a real fighter.
For 50 years, she has belonged
to the Women's International
League for Peace and Freedom,
a group dedicated to world
peace and civil liberties. During
that half-century of member-
ship, she has participated in
demonstrations and penned let-
ters protesting a variety of
causes-wprs, wiretaps and de-

velopment and use of nuclear
A BASIC tenet of the League,
she explained, is that war can
be eliminated by altering the
U.S. economic system.-
"War won't be stopped by an-
nihilating instruments or throw-
ing out the army," she said.
"We have to arrange the eco-
nomnic system in such a way
that we won't have war."
Bonar stands not only opposed
to war,, but all weapons which
destroy human life.

''scopes swiped
The "Mouse House" was robbed over the weekend for the
second time in four months.
The Manmillian Genetics Building, known as the "Mouse
House" because ofthe numerous white mice experiments con-
ducted there, was stripped Saturday of two microscopes valued
at $5,650.
ACCORDING TO police, the thief broke into the building some-
time between 2 a.m. and 5:15 a.m. by smashing a window. A
guard discovered the valuable scopes missing at 5:30 a.m.
The "Mouse House" was robbed last April 17, when a type-
writer was taken.
University Safety Director Fred Davis speculated that the
same person is responsible for both thefts.
. "IT MAY BE odd, maybe not, but the same window was
broken out both times," noted Davis.
Davids believes that the microscopes and typewriter were
stolen for their resale value rather than personal use.

Billy's at it again
You might ask what Billy
Carter, the president's bro-
ther, is doing in a swim-
ming pool, rose clutched in
teeth and brew firmly in
hand. Well, the famous sib-
ling stepped across the bor-
der to British Columbia
over the weekend to judge
at the World Bellyflop and
Cannonball Championship,
whatever that is. At the end
of the event, Billy the
showman gave the crowd
of 1,000 its jollies by flop-
ping his own beer belly into
the swimming pool.
