ALTHOUGH LUTHER said he doub-
ted the Mideast conflict would affect
the global balance of power, Mazrui
contended that "This could be the most
serious war affecting the Muslim world
since 1971.Although it is unlikely at the
moment," he added, "There is always
the possibility one of the major powers
may decide its interests are en-
dangered and move in."
President Carter yesterday urged the
Soviet Union to stay out of the conflict.
"This dispute is reaching the
dangerous stage right now," Luther
concurred. Not only could the conflict
deprive the world market of four billion
barrels of oil, it could also increase ten-
sions in the Persian Gulf. "Although
there would not be an immediate world-
wide oil glut," Luther said, "the two
countries would face severe economic
Prof. Gernot Windfuhr, chairman of
the Near Eastern Studies Department,

recent outbreak of an ancient dispute.
He attributed the fighting to religious

Damaged nuclear warhead
reportedly flown to Texas
LITTLE ROCK, Ark.-A dented nuclear warhead blown from a Titan II
missile in an underground silo explosion reportedly was flown yesterday to
Amarillo, Texas, for examination at a nuclear weapons plant.
Officials would not immediately confirm whether the warhead was
aboard the Military Airlift Command C-141 that flew from Little Rock Air
Force Base to Amarillo International Airport.
Hazardous material is frequently flown into Amarillo because of the
Pantex Plant, the final assembly point for the nation's nuclear weapons. As
this shipment was underway, an investigation was beginning at the
Damascus, Ark., site of the Friday explosion.
In Los Angeles, President Carter said there was no radiation at the
Consumer prices jump 0.7%
in August, drought cited
WASHINGTON-Led by the biggest jump in food prices in five years,
consumer prices in August rose at a rate of 0.7 percent. As a resul, the brief
standstill in the overall cost of living ended as the figure climbed to an an-
nual rate of 8.6 percent.
The big increase in food prices, attributed mainly to the summer-long
drought over much of the valuable U.S. farmland, broke the nation's one
month respite from inflation in July, when consumer prices failed to rise for
the first time in 13 years.
Economists in and out of Washington predicted inflation will continue to
worsen in the months ahead, exceeding double digits by year's end.
Aside from food prices, a dramatic increase in mortgage interest rates
was used to explain the surge in consumer prices.
Milliken pushes tax plan
LANSING-Gov. Milliken asked top lawmakers yesterday to get the
wheels turning on his $100 million, three-part tax plan needed to balance the
state's 1980-81 budget.
Since the state's spending plan is expected to be about $86 million in the
red, Milliken last week proposed a hike in the cigarette levy plus new taxes
on military pay and capital gains.
The governor made his request at another in a series of closed-door
meetings with legislative leaders. Republicans and many Democrats are
afraid the passage of new taxes would heighten support for the radical Tisch
tax cut amendment. But state Budget Director Gerald Miller said the gover-
nor told lawmakers he could not have a responsible budget without the tax
South Africa benefits
In Iraqi -Iranian conflict
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa-The Iraqi-Iranian border conflict
was bad news that was good news for South Africa yesterday. The reason
International gold prices reached $720 an ounce on the London
gold market, due in part to the fighting between Iraq and Iran in the strategic
oil-producing Middle East. That was a $46 rise over Friday's price of $674.
South Africa is the world's largest producer of gold. When troubles loom,
nervous investors often head for the security of gold, driving its price up-
Gold shares on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange were the most heavily
traded and brokers reported many of the buying orders came from U.S. in-
vestors. "The Americans are grabbing everything they can get," said one
Congress begins action
on waste cleanup fund
WASHINGTON-The House began action yesterday on legislation that
would create a "superfund" for emergency cleanup of hazardous waste
dump sites such as the one at Love Canal.
The bill would create a four-year Hazardous Waste Response Fund
allowing the Environmental Protection Agency to clean tip abandoned
hazardous waste sites. The fund would not provide compensation for vic-
The size of the fund depends on whether the House accepts the $600
million figure approved by its Commerce Committee or the $1.2 billion
amount agreed to by the Ways and Means Committee.
Money for the fund would come equally from the chemical.industry and

Engineering Prof Arch Naylor,
chairman of the faculty Senate Ad-
visory Committee on University Af-
fairs, said he felt the Marwil case never
should have gone to courts of law, but
should have been resolved within the
That is an opinion shared by many
faculty members, who point to the

procedure for faculty members within
EVEN PRATT appared uncomfor-
table about deciding the Marwil case.
He wrote: "The court reserves its
comment on which forum (the courts or
University grievance bodies) is most
likely to achieve the proper resolution."
Marwil had exhausted all possible
routes of appeal within the University
before filing his lawsuit. The Senate
Advisory Review Committe, the
faculty's grievance board which can
provide only advisory opinions,
unanimously supported Marwil's
request for a tenure review.
Marwil later appealed to then-
University Vice President for
Academic Affairs Harold Shapiro,
asking him to direct the humanities
department to grant him asixth-year
tenure review. Finally, in the summer
of 1979, Marwil and several faculty
leaders asked the Regents to intervene.
MARWIL'S COMPLICATED suit,
reduced to its basic components,
suggested on the one hand an outspoken
professor persecuted by administrators
who were ruffled by his frequent
criticisms, while on the other hand, a
group of department officials-sin-
cerely concerned about the damage an
-abrasive faculty member could do in a
close-knit department-earnestly pur-
suing every legitimate avenue to get rid
When he originally initiated his suit in
August, 1979, Marwil alleged that his
right of freedom of speech had been
violated by the administrative commit-
tee, that committee members had ac-
ted with malice when they terminated
his contract, and that the University
was guilty of several contract
A series of dismissal motions made
by University attorneys successfully
whittled down Marwil's suit to the point
where neither the Regents nor the in-
dividual faculty members were liable
for damages. So, had Pratt ruled in
Marwil's favor, he probably would have
only granted Marwil a tenure review.
