Egypt and Israel make history,
establish full diplomatic ielations

From The Associated Press
Egypt and Israel established full diplomatic relations for
the first time yesterday, a day hailed in Cairo and Jerusalem
as a major chapter in the history of peace but denounced in
much of the Arab world as a day of betrayal.
As ambassadors from the former enemies presented
their credentials in the two capitals, Palestinian Arabs
protested by closing down businesses and schools in the
Israeli-occupied territories, Moslems staged similar strikes
in parts of Lebanon, and all traffic in Syria came to a stan-
dstill for five minutes at midday. Protesters clashed with riot
police in Sudan.
At Cairo's A Palace, an honor guard snapped to at-
tention and a military band played the Israeli national an-
them as, Sadat accepted the credentials of Israeli Am-
bassador Eliahu Ben-Elissar.
"LET US VOW on this historic occasion, to complete our
sacred mission and make the peace process irreversible,"
the Egyptian leader declared.

"I am absolutely sure that peace is unavoidable," said
Ben-Elissar, who praised Sadat as a man who would "live
throughout history" for his 1977 journey to Jerusalem, which
launched the process that last March led to the signing of the
Israeli-Egyptian treaty and the end of 30 years of war bet-
ween the two nations.
Three hundred miles away in Jerusalem, an air force
honor guard and police bandplaying the Egyptian anthem
welcomed the new Egyptian ambassador, Saad Murtada, as
he arrived at the presidential compound to present his
credentials to Israeli President Yitzhak Navon.
"We can provide a good example of coexistence in peace
between the Israeli people and the Arab people in the area,"
Murtada said, "something that will reduce for the Arabs the
threat to their security and will ensure a just and lasting
peace."
EGYPT'S MIDDLE East News Agency said Begin
telephoned Sadat to congratulate him on the exchange of
ambassadors.

"Central and Peripheral Mechanisms
in Motor Control"

Student GOP candidate Burton challenges
incumbent Dem Greene in 2nd Ward race

(Continued from Page 1)
Greene "obviously recognizes the need
and is working on the problem" of bet-
ter security downtown, she said that his
solution, assigning police officers to
walk beats part-time downtown, was
ineffective.
"I would like to put full-time added
(police) personnel in the Second
Ward," she said.
Although she admitted the city's
budget this year was tight, Burton said
the extra police protection could come
through a reorganization of the police
department.
SHE ALSO contended that Greene
had "mentioned" the problem of the
lack of child care facilities in the ward,
but he had not resolved the issue.

Burton said the solution to the lack of
child care was to "work with the
University to have them provide a child
care facility on North Campus."
She said she supported ideas gleaned
from her talks with other city
Republicans on how to reduce property
taxes - a millage rollback by the city's
government coupled with tax cuts by
the gchool board, which receives about
60 per cent of the taxes collected in Ann
Arbor. ]
GREENE YESTERDAY charac-
terized proposals to limit property
taxes in Ann Arbor as "irresponsible."
The limits "will lock us in, year after
year, with inflation, so that ultimately

services would have to be cut," Greene
maintained. "City services are now at a
bare bones level."
Taxes are a major problem in the
city, according to Greene, but less of an
issue in the Second Ward. "There is less
concern for the level of taxation in the
student segment," Greene said, "But it
is reflected in their rent structure."
Greene placed much of the blame for
the Second Ward's housing problems on
the University's failure to build more
student housing. "The council has to
take a tough position with the Regen-
ts," Greene said. "The University has
social responsibilities and I don't feel
they've met them."
Greene wants the council to pressure

the Regents into building more Univer-
sity housing or "cooperate with the city
in a housing authority."
Greene has espoused a Downtown
Development Authority to create more
available housing, and hopes to im-
plement this before the election. Thee
.mayor supports him in this, Greene
said, "and I believe he will live up to his
word.
On housing, Burton endorsed the idea
of a Downtown Development Authority,
but she said she opposed rent control,
which Greene has supported in the past.
Burton said her only answer to the
housing crunch was to "educate the
renters and the landlords on their
rights."

Court rules that minors can
obtain contraceptives freely

CINCINNATI (UPI)-Family plan-
ning clinics may distribute
contraceptives to minors without
notifying parents, a federal appeals
court ruled yesterday in a Michigan
case.
"Minors possess a constitutionally
protected right of privacy," said the 6th
U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. "As with

.
s
°

adults, the minor's right of privacy
includes the right to obtain
contraceptives."
THE 3-0 DECISION reversed a
federal district court finding that such a
practice violated parents'
constitutional rights.'
"The desire of parents to know of
such activities by their children is
understandable," said the appellate
court.
"However, the only issue before the
court is whether there is a
constitutional obligation on the family
planning center to notify them.
"THE RECORD before us does not
establish that the center infringes a
constitutional right or parents by its
practice of distributing contraceptive
devices and medication to
unemancipated minors without notice
to their parents."
The ruling stemmed from a
controversy at the Tri-County Family
Planning Center in Lansing, Mich.,
operated by the Ingham County Health
Department.

Although the center requires youths
to attend an educational "sex rap
session" and to undergo' a physical
exam before receiving contraceptives,
it does not require parental knowledge
or consent before giving the youths the
free contraceptives.
MOST OF THE contraceptives
distributed are birth control pills for
women.
A survey at the center showed that in
one year it distributed contraceptives
to 623 females who were 17 years old,
466 who were 16, 210 who were 15 and 74
who were 14.
According to a study, 89 per cent had
had intecourse at least one time before
visiting the center.
Unhappy parents filed a lawsuit
agaisnt the center, presenting an
expert witness who testified that the
center's policy was "viewed by
teenagers as a green light for the use of
contraceptives" and "usurped parents'
rightful position of authority over their
children."

initiative, the gravely ill Tito last week
sent letters, to Carter and Brezhne4
urging them to pursue detente.
The Soviet military commander. in
Afghanistan earlier appeared to have
taken charge of the Afghanistan gover-
nment in face of the paralyzing strikes
by the shopkeepers and civil servants
against President Babrak Karmal's
eight-week-old government.
FOREIGN BROADCASTS by Kabul
radio monitored here have made y4
mention of Karmal in the last twoas
and the Afghan president has not been
seen in public during the past three
weeks.
A reliable report said 85 per cent to 90
per cent of Kabul stores were closed
Monday because of the protest over the
Soviet occupation.
There was no clear indication how long
the shop closings would last, but one
underground leaflet claimed the protest
had been set for six days. That would
mean yesterday was the last day.
The report from Kabul, quoting con-
sistently reliable Afghan sources said
many, but a still undetermined num-
ber, of Shiite Hazara tribesmen were
taken into custody yesterday. The sour-
ces declined to be identified by name
nationality or occupation because the
feared reprisals against them.
Hazaras, Mongolian-appearing
Afghans from the central Afghan
province of Bamian, traditionally have
faced social and religious
discrimination at the hands of
Afghanistan's dominant Sunni Moslem
Pushtun or Pathan tribes, Shiites, in-
cluding Hazaras, comprise one to two
per cent of the Central Asian nation's
estimated 16 million people.
