Afghan citizens slain-rebels

From AP and UPI
KABUL, Afghanistan - Afghan and
Soviet officials in Kabul have im-
risoned, tortured, and executed
housands of civilians for suspected
political opposition or disloyalty to the
Marxist regime, travelers from
Afghanistan and Afghan rebels said
yesterday.
The visitors to the Afghan capital of
Kabul also said the Soviet-backed
government was on the verge of ex-
pelling all Western journalists from the
country. All American reporters were
Erdered out last month.
AT LEAST six Western reporters.
were refused admission when they lan-
ded at the capital's airport on 'Sunday.
Those still here were harassed and
warned their visas would not be
renewed.
Several reporters avoided the official.
taxis, usually driven by men believed to
be police spies, and used private taxi
drivers instead. Police officially war-
ned those drivers Sunday to stop
working for the "imperialist press" or
*isk losing their licenses and their'
livelihoods.

The state-run press and radio have
stepped up a campaign against the
United States, China, Pakistan and
"Zionist Egypt" accusing them of con-
spiring to restart the cold war, destroy
the socialist revolution and dismember
Afghanistan. The Soviet military inter-
vention is justified as "needed to ward
off imperialist intervention and
aggression."
A spokesperson for Afghan rebels
told the Kuwaiti news agency KUNA
that the "Islamic Revolution for the
Liberation of Afghanistan" will an-
nounce a provisional government by
the end of March.
THE SPOKESPERSON also claimed
that some Soviet soldiers from Moslem
regions of the U.S.S.R. have deserted to
the rebels.
He said the desertions by the Moslem
Russians led Soviet authorities to
"replace its invading force with new
groups brought from inside the Soviet
Union and East Germany."
There was no independent confir-,
mation of the report from any other
source, but Central Asian Soviet troops
who spearheaded the invasion were

replaced by soldiers from European
Russia, news reports said previously.
A Western reporter who spent four
days with the rebels in Afghanistan
recently told UPI In Pakistan "there
was no military cohesion in anything I
saw, no communication between rebel
camps, no communication in a military
sense."
JUDAH PASSOW, who was invited to
the camps by Moslem leaders, returned
two weeks ago from a guided four-day
tour of guerrilla camps with three
European journalists after crossing the
Pakistani-Afghan fro tier.
"The rebel operate ns we saw were
primitive to the point of being ineffec-
tive," Passow said.
One salesman who traveled through
Afghanistan said dozens of employees
of shops, hotels, automobile rental
agencies and restaurants have disap-
peared since the takeover of the first
Soviet-backed government in April
1978.
Another traveler told of a relative of a
family employee who was released
recently from a Kabul prison with his
fingernails "ripped off."

- - --

"PRESUMABLY his offense was not
informing officials of something they
thought he should have known or told,"
the traveler added.
"You can be certain that every
shopkeeper in the tourist areas and in
general those who serve or sell to
foreigners is forced to inform," he said.
He said Soviet officials were "often
involved" but refused to elaborate.

and senior years the report estimates
that the eventual attrition rates for the
class of 1980 nevertheless will be lower
than those for the class.of 1979.
ASSOCIATE Vice-President for
Academic Affairs Richard English
estimated that the total minority
attrition rate for the freshpersons who
Otered in 1976, which now stands at
33.8 per cent, will rise no higher than
38.3 per cent. The rate for freshpersons
entering in 1975 is 48.4 per cent.
Referring to his minority attrition
rate estimation of 38.3 per cent, English
said, "That's much lower than the
national norm, which is about 50 per
cent. However, it's still much too high
for our satisfaction."
Why minority students voluntarily
&aye the University is still an
unanswered question, although LSA
shed some light on the problem with a
recent study of 19 black students who
dropped out of the University. The
report found that many left for medical
reasons, some begause of.-bousing and
financial probems; and s'me because
they transfered to other institutions. t
English said there is still a need to

look more broadly at why students
leave the University. "I think we've got
to do it," he said.
ENROLLMENTS FOR minority
groups other than blacks either
increased or remained the same in fall,.
1979. On the Ann Arbor campus, Asian-
American enrollment increased from

also Wayne State University,
experienced declines in black
enrollment between 1976 and 1978.
In 1978 Northwestern University had
the highest black enrollment (7.2 per
cent) of the Big Ten schools. The
University had the second largest
percentage of black students.

Low snow keeps trays inside

presumably due to the shortage of
snow.
"Last year it was bad," said Doug
Roos, Markley Food Service super-
visor. "We were down to 600 trays with
1,200 people to feed. We haven't come
*lose to that this year."
ALTHOUGH THERE are usually
student workers posted at cafeteria
doors to prevent theft, students say
they have little difficulty securing
trays. According to Ivey, who works in
the Alice Lloyd cafeteria, "There is
always a build up of trays on the con-
veyor belt after the dish room has
closed."
Other students said they simply do
not return "sick trays", meal trays
hich are allowed to be taken to dorm
ooms if students are ill, to the
cafeteria.
Frank Markun, East Quad Food Ser-
vice Manager, said ,using trays for
Join The
Daily

sledding is dangerous. "The trays are
fiber glass and despite the metal rein-
forcement strip, can shatter if they hit
something and can wound the trayer,"
he said.
MARKUN ESTIMATED that ap-
proximately 10 per cent of stolen East
Quad trays are returned at the end of
the year. But some of these trays are
too battered up to use, he said.
ELoise Nelson, manager of Food
Service at Bursley, agreed. "Traying
damages them (trays) and we aren't

able to sanitize most of them," she said.
One hundred dozen trays were. or-
dered for Markley for tyhis year, "so
we'll be ready for an avalanche," said
Roos.
Lynn Tubbs, the coordinator of Food
Service said one dozen trays cost $43.97.
That brings Markley's tray bill to $4,397
plus tax for this year. Supervisors said
the cost is passed on to dorm residents
in the board fee. The cost for new trays
is budgeted into each dorm's small
equipment fund.
