CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Military and
diplomatic sources said yesterday that
Egypt's new regime has arrested more

leftist dissidents since President Anwar

officials said only "dozens" were
Sadat had more than 1,500 religious
leaders and political foes arrested the
month before he was murdered by
Moslem fanatics during amilitary

said the latest arrests were part of a
campaign to crush violent opposition ot
Sadat's successor, President Hosni
A MILITARY source, who refused to
be named, said that most of those jailed
in the last few days were on a list of
7,000 fundamentalists that Sadat said
would be picked up if they caused more
trouble between Christians and

Reliable sources said the government
crackdown also included a far-reaching
purge of known fundamentalists from
key positions in the armed forces and
government departments. The gover-

speaking to reporters after a meeting
with Mubarak and the governors of
Egypts's 26 provinces, said there had
been no threat to the police in the Man-

"It was the guards that stand watch
in the cornfields," he said. "They
habitually shoot off their guns to com-
municate, as a sign of companionship.
"The police thought there was
something going on, so they fired back.
Then everything fell quiet. The police
went to investigate and found nothing,"
he said.
Ismail also confirmed a "limited"
number of arrests, without disclosing
figures. He said he would declare the
full details "within two days."

Dems differ on how to win in 82

BALTIMORE (UPI) - Democratic
Party leaders agreed yesterday that
President Reagan's economic policy is
doomed to failure but they differed over
how to convert that defeat to a victory
in the 1982 elections.
Among the 60 party leaders winding
up a two-day meeting of the
Democratic National Strategy Council
there was the normal disunity over
where the party should go from here.

York City triggered black anger when
he said busing, racial quotas and
government aid programs for
minorities were failures and should
have been directed to help all the poor.
Black state Sen. Clarence Mitchell of
Baltimore responded by saying more
minority programs were the answer to
bringing back disaffected Democratic
And "boll-weevil" Rep. Wes Watkins,
of Oklahoma, said Democrats took a
pounding at the polls last year because,
"we moved too far to the left - many
voters felt the Democratic Party had
left them."
FORMER VICE President Walter
Mondale summed up the tone of the
conference, saying: "When you're out
of office, many voices speak for the
Democratic Party."
"Out of this process of focusing on our,
problems we are going to be more
equipped to re-earn the trust of the

American voter and we will be better
prepared to govern," he said:
But Mondale insisted that liberal and
conservative Democrats alike agree
that the party "cannot abandon the
values of social justice."
Gov. Edmund Brown of California
said there's a very simple reason
Democrats lost in 1980. "The problem is
Americans are getting poorer and they
want to get richer," he said. "If you .
don't deal with that you won't win."
Many of the Democratic leaders said
it was time to bury liberal New Deal
programs because they were outdated
and didn't work.

7 hurt in porch collapse,
Two people were treated at Univer-
sity Hospital Friday night for injuries
incurred when a second-story porch
collapsed at 27 Haverhill Court, near*
North Campus.
At least five others were injured
slightly in the accident, according to
a representative from the Ann Arbor
Fire Department.
A headline in yesterday's Daily did
not correctly reflect an article on an
election study by the University's Cen-
ter for Political Studies.
The study, by John Jackson and
William McGee of the Institute for
Social Research, reported that media
projections of a Reagan victory in the
1980 election before polls closed
reduced voterturnout.
The article did not suggest that a
reduction in turnout hurt the
Democratic party's or Jimmy Carter's
chances of winning the election.
