Egypt's Mubarak arrests 1,500


From AP and UPI
CAIRO, Egypt - In a crackdown by
new President Hosni Mubarak, more
than 1,500 religious extremists and
suspected agitators have been arrested
in the 10 days since President Anwar
Sadat's assassination, sources close to
the government said yesterday.
There was no confirmation of the
reports from official sources, but
travelers arriving at Cairo airport
reported a sharp security clampdown
Ind the confiscation of all foreign
Arabic language newspapers
7,000 to 8,000 Moslem fundamentalists
and others suspected of subversive
aims who were named in a list Sadat
talked about before he died. The sour-
ces predicted many more arrests to
come. -
Mubarak made no mention of the
crackdown or of escalating tensions

between neighboring ally Sudan and
enemy Libya. But in a telegram to
President Reagan, he said he an-
ticipated closer relations with the
United States.
"We look forward with confidence to
the strengthening of ties of positive and
fruitful cooperation between our two
friendly countries for their mutual
benefit and in the interest of world
security and peace," Mubarak said.
THE STATE-RUN Middle East news
agency carried the Arabic version of
the telegram.
Sadat was gunned down at a military
parade Oct. 6 by four uniformed men,
officially described as Islamic fun-
damentalists, who burst out of the troo-
ps on parade and sprayed the presiden-
tial reviewing stand with machinegun
Mubarak, Sadat's vice president for
6% years, was sitting on Sadat's right

but escaped with a slight arm injury. In
a remarkably smooth transition, he
took over the job for which Sadat had
long groomed him.
nesday, Mubarak, a tough former
fighter pilot and air force commander,
warned possible troublemakers "no one
shall escape the sword of the law." In
the first decree of his presidency, he
threatened the death penalty for
unauthorized users of firearms.
The government announced soon af-
ter the assassination that 18 army of-
ficers known for fundamentalist views
had been moved to civilian jobs.
Some informants said this purge has
been greatly expanded in the 48 hours
since Mubarak took office, and could
foreshadow an unprecedented crack-
down or religious and political op-
ponents of Mubarak's government.
HE HAD EARLIER ordered more

than 1,500 people arrested after sec-
tarian disturbances in Cairo and
elsewhere. In his Sept. 5 speech, he
said those arrested were the
ringleaders, and others would be kept
under surveillance.
One official refused to comment on
the reported crackdown, but recalled
the list mentioned by Sadat on Sept. 5
and said "maybe that was the source of
these reports."
A reporter living in suburban Giza
saw armed security men outside his
house grab three men wearing the long-
shirted garb of Moslems and bundle
them into a car.
AT CAIRO AIRPORT, police and
customs officers caefully searched all
arriving baggage, ostensibly for
%yeapons, but confiscated foreign
Arabic language publications.

Senate appropriations leader
proposes major defense cuts

WASHINGTON (UPI)- Chairman Mark Hatfield
of the Senate Appropriations Committee yesterday
proposed $4.07 billion in reductions in 1982 defense
spending and $29 billion over three years-twice the
amount recommended by President Reagan.
Hatfield, a moderate Oregon Republican who has
been critical of defense spending in the past,
suggested eliminating nine weapons systems he said
were of questionable value, and substituting other
less costly systems.
"IF THE PROPOSED massive expenditures on
defense are not scrutinized now, we will experience
an explosion in costs in the immediate years ahead
that will effectively destroy the effort to strengthen
the military and balance the federal budget," he said
at a news conference called to outline his cuts.

Hatfield suggested the substitution or cancellation
of nine weapons systems that he said were of
questionable value, a 6 percent reduction in civilian
employment at the Pentagon, and a 15 percent reduc-
tion in consulting contracts.
When added to the president's $2 billion reduction
in the planned defense buildup, Hatfield said the
Defense Department would save $4.07 billion.
HE SAID HIS cuts totaled $16.6 billion by fiscal 1984
When added to Reagan's proposed $13 billion in cuts
over the three-year period, it totals $229.4 billion.
Other systems Hatfield targeted were the C-X tran-
sport, the Division Air defense Gun System, FA-18
aircraft, the Light Airborne Multipurpose System,
and the M-1 tank. He proposed substitutes for some of
the systems that he said would cost the government

less money.
Hatfield said a 6 percent civilian personnel reduc-
tion would result in the elimination of 61,440 jobs and
save $3.8 billion by 1984.
" He said thousands of civilian jobs at the Pentagon
have little relationship to military readiness, in-
cluding 1,500 civilian and public information
specialists, 480 museum curators and historians,
2,000 legislative liaison staffers, and 10;600 recreation
Hatfield also said there was "obvious waste and a
great deal of the well-known buddy system at work"
in consulting contracts for the Defense Department.
He cited a report by the General Accounting Office
that' said 80 percent of the contracts were entered
without competitive bidding.

United Press international reports
94 persons f eared dead
in Japanese mine disaster
TOKYO- Methane gas seeped into a deep mine shaft yesterday and of-
ficials said they feared 94 people were dead. Spokesmen for the coal com-
pany said they found 42 bodies and had "given up hope" for 52 other people
trapped inside.
"Judging from the present circumstances, there is no hope that anybody is
alive," Chiaki Hayasahi, president of Hokkaido Colliery and Steamship
Company, which owns the mine, said early Saturday.
The missing and presumed dead included 10 rescue workers.
Rescue operations were called off at nightfall when more deadly gas was
detected in the mine near Sapporo, 500 miles north of Tokyo, police said. The
gas was about 1 miles from the mouth of the mine, in a new wing near the
bottom of the pit.
Company spokesman Shozo Akaishi said 32 bodies had been taken out, doc-
tors had seen another 10 bodies inside and 52 people were unaccounted for.
He said 77 coal miners were rescued and nine were hospitalized. The Sap-
poro Coal Mine Safety Supervising Bureau, a government agency, confir-
med 42 dead.
Laboratory plutonium accident
contaminates 15 employees
LOS ALAMOS, N.M.- Los Alamos National Laboratory shut down a por
tion of its operations yesterday while officials tried to determine what
caused an accidental release of radioactive plutonium that contaminated 15
workers, a spokesman said.
Tests indicated one employee . might have received a level of con-
tamination "over the permissible body burden," said Jim Breen, public af-
fairs officer for the laboratory. Breen said today "there is a possibility he
has it (plutonium) in his lungs."
The employee, whom the laboratory declined to identify, was not
hospitalized but was being monitored and was receiving medical attention,
Breen said.
KKK member elected to
affirmative action post
ELMIRA, N.Y. (AP)- A Ku Klux Klan member who works at Elmira
state prison has been elected by his fellow employees to an affirmative ac-
tion committee designed to help minorities, officials said yesterday.
Joseph D. Curle, 38, a prison guard, has "been functioning on the commit-
tee" since Aug. 26, said Louis Ganim of the New York State Department of
Correctional Services in Albany.
John Howe, regional coordinator in Syracuse for the department's affir-
mative action program, said Curle was one of 21 employees elected to the
committee during the summer.
Both Ganim and Howe said Curle would be allowed to stay in his post
despite his association with the Klan.
"If people elected him, they elected him and that's it," Howe said.
"Besides, he may well be a settling force."
Alpena school system broke
ALPENA, Mich.- The penniless Alpena school system shut its doors to
6,800 students yesterday, in the first public school closing over money in
Michigan since the Depression.
Bitter students faced the day they dubbed "Black Firday" with black
humor. There was a "For Sale" sign on the lawn of Alpena High School.
Huge letters in the windows read "CLOSED."
Voters in the northern Michigan community have rejected three millage
proposals in five months, said Glenn McAdam, the schools' finance director.
As a result, the school system is broke.
Classes will be canceled at least until Oct. 30; when voters consider two
proposals. One will seek a 20.25 mill renewal-about 2 cents per dollar of
assessed value-to raise $15 million; another seeks 3.45 mills to provide $1.2
million for services like transportation, athletics and libraries.

that could be inflicted on the stae's
higher education institutions and does
not want to cause further damage.
"THERE WILL BE no more
executive orders," to cut the state's
funds to colleges, Rdberts said. -
University President Harold Shapiro
said that he believes Roberts's promise
was a "good faith opinion," but he ad-
ded, "they said the same thing last year
and it was not correct."
"It continues to be disappointing that
the state is unable to provide enough
appropriations," Shapiro said.
THE EXECUTIVE order was expec-
ted by University officials. Frye
outlined a plan at the September
Regent's meeting that dealt with an an-
ticipated 5 percent reduction in state
appropriations to the University.
Frye explained that the University
would, in order to cover any cash shor-
tfall in the 1981-82 budget, restrict
general fund expenditures on items
such as library acquisitions, building
maintenance, and equipment upkeep.
'In Lansing, state budget analyst
Glenn Preston said he expects the state
legislature will pass Milliken's
executive order and that there probably
will not be any significant changes in
the order.
The state's new fiscal year started
Oct. 1.
THE GOVERNOR wants to avoid
what happened last fiscal year when
the legislature had to rapidly cut state
expenditures in a last minute rush to
balance the 1980-81 budget, Preston
said of this early executive recision.
The University of Michigan campus.
at Flint will receive a budget cut of
$270,000. The Dearborn campus will
recedive a cut of $229,000.
"We mustn't relax for the year,''
Frye said of the need for more program
cutbacks. "We have no idea what wil
happen with federal revenue."
The University should not be too com-
fortable with its position after this
budget cut, Frye warned.

Psalm 2:1 and Acts 4:25
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast
rejected knowledge. I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me:
seeing thou hast forgotten The Law of Thy God, I will also forget thy
children!" Hosea 4:6.
Weigh these words! It is a terrible message of judgment! Destroyed on
account of "lack of knowledge" or ignorance. Rejection and ignorance of
"The Law of Our God!" The results: they shall be no priest to God, and God
will forget their children, seeing they have forgotten "The Law of Thy God!"
- Protestantism gives us the true teaching of God's Word that every sincere
believer is a priest unto his God. Have we not forgotten "The Law of Our
God!" We "breach The Sabbath" and destroy "The goods of God!" We mock
and scorn His Laws regarding the home, marriage and sex relations. Our land
is lousy with murderers, and yet quite a number of our states have decided
that The Almighty did not know what He was talking about when He said:
"Whoso killeth any person, the murderer shall be put to death - Moreover
ye shall take no satisfaction for the life of a murderer, which is guilty of
death; but he shall be surely put to death" - Numbers 35:30-31.
Our land is also filled with stealing, lying and covetousness. If this writer's
appraisal is correct even many of the laws of our nation and states encourage
Its people to covet that which in God's sight belongs to another instead of
