Sudan fears Libyan invasion;

He said Secretary of State Alexander
Haig with whom he met after the Sadat
funeral, told him he knew the situation
in the area was dangerous.
Haig said the United States was
looking into means of speeding up arms
deliveries to Sudan. The week before
Sadat was killed, his vice president and
apparent successor Hosni Mubarak
went to Washington to urge the United
States to increase its aid to Sudan.

WORKMEN REMOVE A poster of slain Egyptian President Anwar Sadat

Mubarak referendum
held amid violence

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Millions of Egyp-
tians, not deterred by fatal bomb blasts
at Cairo's airport and a gunbattle bet-
ween police and Moslem extremists in
Giza, voted yesterday in a referendum
to confirm Hosni Mubarak as successor
to, slain President Anwar Sadat.
No violence was reported at the
polling stations, guarded by heavily
armed soldiers and police. Although
security was tight, it was not con-
sidered unusually strict. Egyptian
media broadcast reports of the airport
bomb blast and the shooting near the
pyramids throughout the day.
MUBARAK, the country's vice
president and the only candidate, was
certain to win approval from Egypt's 12
million eligible voters.
The Interior Ministry said the time
bombs exploded on an Air Malta flight
from Libya shortly after it landed at
Cairo Internatinal Airport and
discharged its 93 passengers.
Police said a baggage handler was
killed, and that another baggage han-
dler, an Air Malta stewardess and two
security guards were wounded. They
said three of the wounded were
seriously injured, but did not say
which ones.

Police said the first bomb exploded
while on a baggage cart below the
plane. There wassa second blast 14
minutes later, they said.
No group immediately claimed
responsibility for the blasts.
AN INTERIOR Ministry statement
said the bombs had beedn timed to ex-
plode inside the airport terminal, but
detonated during unloading because the
flight was 15 minutes late.
Earlier in the day, the ministry,
which controls the country's police,
said that authorities seized five heavily
armed Moslem extremists after a dawn
shootout near the Giza pyramids,
Egypt's top tourist attraction southwest
of Cairo. It said two policement and one
soldier were injured.
The ministry said two of the five cap-
tured men were ringleaders in the fan-
damentalist assault on security men in
the southern city of Asyut yesterday.
Security officials said 118 persons,
nearly half of them policemen, were
killed in the two-day battle. The three
other captured men were said to be ac-
Despite the violence, officials said
voter turnout was heavy for the
referendum on Mubarak.

per square foot and could pay for up to
$250,000 in renovations. But, Cianciola
has thus far refused to back down from
his proposed rental hike to $9.07 and
estimates for the renovation have
ranged as high as $350,000.
Caballero said one advantage the U-
Cellar would enjoy by moving out of the
Union would be the ability to sell in-
signia items and make the bookstore
more of a general retail store. Under
the U-Cellar's current agreement with
Cianciola, the Union director per-
sonally maintains control of what the U-
Cellar may and may not sell.
"We have to give him a laundry list;"
Caballero said. "Then Frank must tell
us whether or not we can sell all the
items on the list. But we have no
guarantee against someone else in the
Union selling the items he has approved
for us."
CIANCIOLA SAID this provision is
necessary in order to balance out the
services and programs the Union will
provide in the future, as well as protect
one of its major sources of
revenue-the insignia items.
A number of other issues stand in the
way of agreement between the Union
and U-Cellar. U-Cellar board members
say they are concerned by the fact that
Cianciola's proposals do not include
any set formula for rent increases over

the seven-year lease period.
"WE HAVE TO see an escalator for-
mula otherwise we're signing just
about anything," U-Cellar Board Mem-
ber Donna Wesley said.
Other bones of contention concern
who should pay for a new sprinkler
system and fire wall in the new
"The concept of the sprinkler system
was tossed back and forth all summer
but nothing was ever decided," Wesley
said. "Then it came to our attention
that it had been decided we'd be paying
for the sprinkler system and a fire
wall." She said the cost for the
sprinkler system alone would be over
U-CELLAR officials say they are also
concerned by Cianciola's refusal thus
far to renew their guarantee of use of
the Union ballroom during fall and win-
ter book rush.
"The ballroom question is a real
dilemma for me," Cianciola said. "It is
in the interest of the Union and in the in-
terest of students to have accessibility
to that facility at the beginning of the
academic terms for programming ac-
Caballero said denial of the use of the
ballroom would be financially
devastating for the U-Cellar.
DESPITE THE many disagreemen-
ts, both Cianciola and Cellar officials

insist they would prefer the store
remain in the Union.
"The U-Cellar is one of the most im-
portant components in making the
Union a center for student interests,"
Cianciola said. "We want them to be a
part of that."
"We don't want this to become a
political battle of any kind," Caballero
said. "We believe the Union and the
Cellar havethe same goal of student
service. It seems as if it's just not
meshing anymore."

fired by Mrs. Thatcher this year, said
at a meeting during a lunch break:
"Let us have some sense of outrage at

unemployment figures and less of what
has become callous chatter about a
leaner, fitter British industry." There

are nearly 3 million out of work in
