Libya says fighting continues

Justice Dept. to indict
five in Korean scandal

Call e) torm Page 1)
Cairo radio said Sunday -night
that all Egyptian forces with-
drew from Libyan soil after
Sadat ordered an immediate
end to hostilities.
THE PALESTINE Liberation
Organi7ation (PLO) announced
in Cairo yesterday that the
shuttle diplomacy of PLO lead-
er Yasir Arafat resulted in a
three - point cease - fire agree-
ment agreed to by both sides.
No details were announced.
Reporters have been barred
from the 800 mile long desert
frontier since fighting erupted

six days ago. There has been
no independent confirmation of
co-iflicting claims about the
fighting issued by Libya and
Egypt.
The Libyan ambassador in
Rome said there could be no
cease - fire until Algerian Pres-
ident Ilouari Boumedienne, who
has been acting as mediator
along with Arafat, report Sack
to Libyan leader Col. Moam-
mar Khadafy. Boumedienne
visited first Tripoli, then Egypt
in his mediation attempt. He
left Egypt for Tripoli yester-
day.

ELISABETH SCHWARZKOPF
is an incomparable soprano
whose commitment is as deep
o the theatrical as musical as-
sects of her art. Her perform-
ice at Rackham last Saturday
ivening, in contrast to other op.
ratic singers, included crisp

ennunciation of lyrics and an un-
usual sensitivity to the texts she
sang.
Ms. Schwarzkopf's profound
involvement with her material
was revealed when singing any
sad or serious song, from whose
mood she emerged slowly to
greet the audience's applause
with a smile.
Yet Schwarzkopf, who is,
above all, a highly polished pro-
fessional, made her transitions.
from sombre to light songs
smoothly, and she was ably aid-
ed in her endeavors by the sen-
sitive piano accompaniment of
John Wustman, a U-M Music
School graduate.
Their program, in German, in-
cluded songs of Schubert and
Wolf, and, as always, Schwarz-
kopf's singing was of the high-
est possible quality. She per-
formed \light, lyrical, almost
naughtily coquettish numbers
like Shubert's "Das Lied im
Grunen" as well as dramatic
songs like Wolf's "O war dein
Haus"-all with uniform excel-
lence.

T H E AMBASSADOR said
Egyptian military actions
against Libya were timed to
disrupt any Arab attempt to
form a joint front against the
new Israeli government of
Prime Minister Menahem Be-
gin.
El Atrash said Egypt reject-
ed a Libyan appeal for an Arab
summit.
"Egypt," he said, "acted to
prevent the summit because it
might have meant something
new in relation to the situation
following the Israeli elections."
THE LIBYAN diplomat said
victims of Egyptian raids in-
cluded citizens of various na-
tionalities working in Libya.
But he said "it was difficult to
beprecise about the various na-
tionalities and the names
among the many victims of
the bombings at this time."
The ambassador ruled out
any reprisal against the 200,-
000 Egyptians who live and
work in oil-rich Libya. "The
Libyan people will no do any
harm to them in any way. No
security measures will be need-
ed to ensure their safety," he
said.
The ambassador denied a
Beirut newspaper report three
Soviet technicians were killed
in the Libyan Egyptian fight-
ing.
"THERE ARE NO Soviet
technicians or Russian bases in
the area," the ambassador
told a news conference he said
was called to explain the plot
by Zionists, imperialists and
Arab reactionaries against Lib-
ya.
In Cairo, Mousa Sabry, edi-
tor of the government control-
led newspaper Al Akhbar, said
the Libyan leader "must go" if
apermanent accord with Libya
is to be reached.
"We don't want anything
from this mad man except to
stop plotting, close sabotage
centers and end his attempts
to sow discord among Arab
countries confronting Israel,"
Sabry said. "That is why I say
and repeat that this mad man
must go if any solution is to be
found."

both the Justice Department
and House investigations as
moving too slowly.
A spokesperson said Bell
wants the briefing to be open
to the press and said he doubt-
ed the attorney general would
talk about prospects of indict-
ments.
The speaker said he under-
stood the briefing would be
given either by Bell or Asst.
Atty. Gen. Benjamin Civiletti,
head of the Justice Depart-
ment's Criminal Division.
The Justice Department has
been investigating for more
than a year allegations that
Korean agents distributed cash,
gifts and favors to congressmen
to try to influence them to vote
for programs benefiting South
Korea.
THE JUSTICE Department's
job is to determine whether
there was criminal wrongdoing.
The House ethics committees
began a separate investigation
in January on whether any law-
makers violated the House's
own standards of conduct.
Several present and former
congressmen have acknowledg-
ed accepting cash contributions
from Korean rice dealer Tong-

sun Park but say they know
him only as a businessman and
Washington partygiver.
The Constitution Prohibits
congressmen from accepting
cash and gifts from foreign
agents but until 1974 it was
legal for -them to accept cash
campaign contributions from
foreign businessmen.
THE JUSTICE Department
investigation was reported pre-
viously to be focusing on for-
mer congressmen and on prin-
mer congressmen and on peri-
pheral charges such as tan
evasion rather than direct
charges of bribery.
Gov. Edwin Edwards of Lou-
isiana has acknowledged that
his wife accepted $10,000 from
Park as a gift in 1971 while
he was a congressman running
for governor.
Among the current congress-
men who have acknowledged
that Park gave them cam-
paign contributions in the early
1970s ranging from several hun-
dred to several thousand dol-
lars are: House Democratic
whip John Brademas of India-
na; former whip John McFall,
(D-Calif.), and - Reps. Morris
Udall, (D-Ariz.), Melvin Price,
(D-ll.), and Thomas Foley,
.(D-Wash.).

Pacifist, at 83,
is a real fighter

(Continued from Page 1)
"I WORKED hard to get the
B-1 (bomber) taken off," she
said. "I went to Farmer's Mar-
ket Pnd passed out a lot of
things The day before the Pres-
ident was making up his mind
about it, I sent him a telegram
-a two-dollar one."
Bonar shudders at the thought
of the neutorn bomb, saying
U.S. support of that weapon
comes from the country's in-
terest in property and power.
"It's very funny," she said.
"What's the good of having all
the houses if the people are all
dead? We kill off all the people,

It's a spewing smoke-
stack. It's litter in the
streets. It's a river where
fish can't live.
You know what pollu-
tion is.
But not everyone does.
So the next time you see
pollution, don't close your
eyes to it.
Write a letter. Make a
call. Point itoutto someone
who can do something
about it.
People
start pollution.
People
con stop it.

fine, we have their property.
Are we happy? I wouldn't be."
BONAR SAYS she f e e l s
strongly about any kind of in-
justice, whether it involves war,
poverty or legal decisions.
She has just joined the Legal
Aid Society, where she will
serve on a citizens' committee,
hoping to help those less for-
tunate than herself.
But whatever the cause, Bo-
nar's methods of fighting have
always been peaceful.
WHILE SHE supported the
Vietnam war protesters in prin-
ciple, she objected to their
method of protest.
"They were saying, 'Here. I
am saying down with the war,'
so cut my head off,' " she said.
Even through her painting,
Bonar demonstrates her oppo-
sition to war. She plans to dis-
play some of her works in an
"anti-war" showing.
BUT DESPITE h e r strong
pacifist, Bonar considers her-
self very much a patriot.
"Patriotism is a word that's
pretty kicked around. The ones
that care the least about the
world, the least patriotic ones,
are the ones that shout and
wave the old flag," she insisted.
Bonar says she feels gratified
by the contributions she has
made toward peace: "You've
got to make it a better world
before you leave."

popular votes than his oppo-
nent, Benjamin-Harrison, in the

votes, became the president.
