From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON- President Reagan
said yesterday the United States "will
not permit" Saudi Arabia to fall victim
to revolutionary takeover and indiree-
tly but unmistakeably rebuked Israel
for lobbying against the proposed sale
of AWACS radar planes to the Saudis.
The president defended his plan to
sell $8.5 billion worth of planes, missiles
and other equipment to the Mideast
country as vital to protecting the vast
Saudi oil fields that play a major role in
fueling the economies of the Western
Without mentioning Israel by name,
Reagan said: "American security in-
terests must remain our internal
responsibility. It is not the business of
other nations to make American

foreign policy."
REAGAN'S remarks were at a
nationally broadcast news conference,
his first formal meeting with reporters
in more than three months.
'The president also:
" Vowed to use his veto against spen-
ding bills that would "bust the budget
and violate our commitment to hold
down federal spending."
" Defended his campaign to slash
spending for social programs and said
the "safety net" to protect the poor "is
still in place." Later, he said everyone
"totally dependent on the government"
are "our obligation and nothing is going
to happen to them."
* Said he supports, in principle, ex-
tension of the landmark Voting Rights
Act. He declined to say in what form.

Asked if he could assure that the
AWACSwould not be taken over by an
enemy if the Saudi government fell in a
revolution similar to the upheavel that
deposed the late shah in Iran, Reagan
asserted: "I can make that guarantee
that it will not compromise our security
... I have to say that Saudi Arabia, we
will not permit to be an Iran."
ALTHOUGH HE refused to spell out
what the United States would do,
Reagan said, "There is no way we could
stand by" and see Saudi Arabia taken
over by anyone who would shut off its
oil exports.
Meanwhile, in an 11th-hour bid to win
congressional approval of its $8.5 billion
Saudi arms sale, the administration
announced a compromise yesterday
giving the United States virtual joint
control of the AWACS radar planes in-
cluded in the deal.
Secretary of State Alexander Haig
announced the five-point understanding
aimed at relieving congressional con-
cern that the sophisticated surveillance
systems not only would pose a threat to
Israel but could be lost if the Saudi
regime was toppled.
THE SAUDI-American compromise
contains five main provisions plus three
points outlining stringent security
measures to safeguard the Airborne

Warning and Control System aircraft:
eComplete data sharing with the
United States on a continuous basis.
* No sharing of AWACS data with
other parties without U.S. consent.
* "ONLY CAREFULLY screened
Saudi and U.S. nationals will be permit-
ted to be involved with these aircraft.
Given the shortage of Saudi aircrews
and technicians, this means that there
will be an American presence in the
aircraft and on the ground well into the
" No operation of Saudi AWACS out-
side Saudi airspace.
* Extensive and elaborate security
measures for safeguarding equipment
and technology including:
* MONITORING BY U.S. inspection
teams of the performance of all equip-
ment associated with the AWACS sale.
" Construction of special facilities to
provide 24-hour protection against
unauthorized entry.
* "All of the agreed arrangements for
protecting the security of the AWACS
must be approved by the United States
at least one year before any AWACS are
delivered to the Saudis."

set for ERA drive

,They will be on the streets and the
Diag today and tomorrow, pleading for
support during the last stretch of the
fight for ratification of the Equal Rights
About 40 canvassers from the
National Organization for Women and a
University ERA support group will be
looking for people who are willing to
send messages in support of the ERA to
political leaders across the country.
THE CANVASSERS will be working
on the Diag and along State, Liberty
and Main Streets from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
today and tomorrow. They will be
asking people to pay $2 and have their
names placed on a computer mailing
People on the mailing list will receive
a sample message which they can sign

and send to a specific politically in-
fluential individual.
The local effort is part of a national
drive called the ERA Message Brigade.
Organizers hope to enlist at least one
million people across the country to join
the computer mailing list of ERA sup-
KIM BRADY, member of the newly-
reorganized University Students for
ERA,,said the Brigade is a push to get
those few key votes still needed to ratify
the amendment.
Three states still need to ratify the
ERA in order for the amendment to
become law. Deadline for ratification is
June 30, 1982.
Many people "think the ERA is a lost
cause," Brady said. She said she hopes
the latest canvassing effort will help
motivate people to push for ratification.
