Iraqi nuclear center

escapes

Iranian

attack

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP)-Iranian
warplanes attacked Baghdad's nuclear
research center yesterday in a renewal
of the deadly air war against the Iraqi
capital, but the atomic reactor was not
damaged, the French Embassy repor-
ted.
Pandemonium gripped the surroun-
ding neighborhood in the aftermath of
the raid on the power plant. Soldiers
dashed about and militiamen sought to
control traffic as ambulances raced to
and fro, carrying off the victims. The
intense heat of the blaze turned the area
nearby into an oven. A huge cloud of
black smoke hung over the plant.
The United States and the Soviet
Union stepped up international peace
efforts, and the head of an Islamic
peace mission said he was hopeful for
an end of the war.
BUT IN TEHRAN Iranian
revolutionary leader Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini defiantly rejected
calls for a cease-fire, saying Iran "will
not compromise" and will not be
satisfied until the Iraqis are driven
from Iranian soil.
The Iraqi invasion force continued to
encounter tough resistance in Iran's
embattled Khuzestan province.
Iraqi troops. were locked in battle
with Iranian defenders six miles south
of the provincial capital of Ahwaz, AP
correspondent Jeffrey Ulbrich reported
from the scene. Ahwaz, five miles in-
side Iran, is believed to be a key target
of the Iraqi offensive.
U.S. SECRETARY of State Edmund

Muskie met with Iraq's foreign
minister, Saddoun Hammadi at the
United Nations in New York to express
American concern over the hostilities.
Muskie said afterward he was told
Iraw had "limited objectives" in the
war. The Iraqis have said they want the
Iranians to renounce sovereignty over
part of the Shatt al-Arab and three Per-
sian Gulf islands.
In Moscow, Soviet President Leonid
Brezhnev, in his first public comments
on the war, called on Iran and Iraq to
begin direct peace negotiations.
IRAQI PRESIDENT Saddam
Hussein has said Iraq will abide by the
U.N. Security Council's call for a cease-
fire if Iran does. But Khomeini, in a
fiery address on Tehran Radio, rejec-
ted the offer.
"We will not compromise with him
(Hussein). He is an infidel, a person
who is corrupt, a perpetrator of corrup-
tion," said Khomeini, a clergyman of
the Shiite Moslems, a rival sect of
Hussein's Sunnis.
In another development, the U.S.
Defense Department announced it was
sending four Airborne Warning and
Control System aircraft to patrol the
skies over Saudi Arabia, at the Saudis'
request.
THE SOPHISTICATED, radar-
packed planes would be able to give
early warning of any air attack against
Saudi oil fields or on oil traffic in the
Persian Gulf. Iranian officials have
made threats of expanding the war if
other Arab nations help Iraq.

By STEVE HOOK
Are you a graduate student of the
Protestant faith whose loyalty to the
United States and the University of
Michigan is unquestioned?
If you are, or if you fit into one of
several other categories, the Univer-
sity's Office of Financial Aid has a
special fund set aside for your
borrowing needs,.
THEY ARE KNOWN as "restricted
funds:" Alumni donations that are
reserved for student loans-and are
deliberately reserved for students
who fall into specific categories. The
terms are set by, the contributing.
alumni.
Al Hermsen, assistant director of
the financial aid office, explained the
restricted fund system thisway: You
are an undergraduate, majoring in
political science and active on the
Michigan Student Assembly. You
graduate. You begin making money,
and you want to make a contribution
to the University.
But you do not want your con-
tribution to fall into just anybody's
hands-you want to specifically aid
present-day political science studen-
ts-and those who are active on MSA.
Hence, restricted funds.

NOT ONLY CAN donors dictate who
shall have access to these funds, they
can specify whether the loans will be
short or long term, and how much can
be borrowed. They can even set the in-
terest rates.
Hermsen explained that the restric-
ted funds help the University
distribute its available financial aid
resources. By matching qualified
students with available restricted
funds, the demand for other funds
decreases.
"'There are a million situations in
which these funds are made
available," he said. "Some people have
positive experiences with foreign
students while on campus, and want
to help foreign students. Others wish
to set aside funds for students from
their hometowns, or from their
fraternities and sororities. Whatever,
they can set aside their own
categories."
Most contributions. of this kind sim-
ply go to the University colleges the
alumni graduated from-a vast
majority of restricted funds are
reserved simply for LSA,
engineering, law, and business school
students-without further
stipulations.

Surprise!

A

2 landlord have trouble finding tenants
By JOYCE'I F~RIEDEhN

The bulletin board at the University's Off=Campus
Housing Office is a resource often used by students
looking for housing in Ann Arbor. But the students
who went into the office at 1011 Student Activities
Building last week expecting to see the usual small
collection of advertisements for expensive, far-away
houses and apartments came across a real surprise.
Last week, the office board was plastered with ad-
vertisements from area rental agencies-Wilson/
White, Old Town, McKineley Rentals, and
others-for housing close to campus. And the ads are
enticing, containing lines such as "first month's rent
free" and "Rent this apartment and get a $200 gift
certificate good at Ulrich's Book Store."'
Off-Campus Housing Director Jo Williams cited
one possible reason for the glut of. apartments for
rent. "My guess is that rents reached a high level in a
year when the economy is down and students can't af-
ford it any more, so they're doubling up," said
Williams.
SHE ADDED THAT declining enrollment was
definitely not a factor. "We don't have exact figures.

yet, but the Admissions Office says the enrollment for
this term will be approximately the same as last
year's," she said.
McKinely Rentals Director of Campus of Rentals
Jan Austin agreed that finding tenants was a
problem. "Until about a week ago, we had plenty of
everything available; we're just now beginning to get
rid of our efficiency apartments," she said.
Austin said McKinely, which owns approximately
2,000 rental units in Ann Arbor, is using several tac-
tics to attract tenants. "We're offering lower rents
and shorter-term leases . . . we're even offering the
first month's rent free in some cases," she said.
Dave Williams, manager of Old Town Realty,
agreed that more people were doubling up than usual,
and added, "We've been having some trouble getting
things rented this year. It's the first time I can
remember this much trouble."
ALTHOUGH SEVERAL AGENCIES are having
problems finding tenants, a few spokespersons said
their comanies had no trouble renting out houses and

apartments.
"We've had no trouble at all," said an employee of.
Campus Rentals who identified herself only as Jane.
Suzanne Felicks, rental manager at Maize and
Blue Rentals, which owns 167 apartments in the city,
agreed. "With us, everything is all rented out," she
said. -"The only rental problems we had were with a
few people who had signed leases, earlier in the year,
" but told us during the summer they changed their
minds. But we rented all those out last week."
One University student said he found more apar-
tments available close to campus this year than last
because more people are willing to move farther
away.
"I KNOW LOTS OF people in frats and apartments
who could more readily afford cars than before, and
they are willing to move away from campus," said
LSA junior Dave Deaver. Deaver cited the Villge
Green and Glencoe complexes as popular, but
distant, apartments for students

Carter won't show up
at Peace Corps event

Proffavors program
cuts, smaller 'U'

By DAVE MEYER.
After recent speculation and reports that President
Carter might be coming to town for the 20th Anhiversary of
thePeace Corps this month final word came yesterday that
he won't be on hand for the celebration.
Francis Pegues, a spokeswoman at the Carter-Mondale
headquarters in Detroit, said neither the president nor
Secretary of State Edmund Muskie-who has also been men-
oned as a celebration participant-will attend the event to
take place at the Michigan Union on Oct.13 and 14.
HOWEVER, RICK SLINE, director of Student
Organizations, Activities and Projects, said that he had been
assured Muskie would attend. "We were told if it wasn't Car-
ter . . . it would be Muskie," Sline said.,.Bob Anderson,
Washtenaw County coordinator for the Carter-Mondale cam-

paign, said he, too, had been told Mugkie would be present.
Janice Settle, a spokeswoman for the State Department,
refused to confirm or deny the report that Muskie will appear
here. "That trip has not been announced yet," Settle said.
The ceremony will celebrate the night in 1960 at the
University, when John Kennedy, then a presidential can-
didate, proposed the creation of a voluntary, international
service organization.
To date, Sargeant Shriver, the Peace Corps' first director,
and Kennedy's brother-in-law, Lillian Carter, the mother of
President Carter and a former Peace Corps volunteers, and
former Senator Muriel Humphrey have announced plans to
attend, said Pegues and Jeff Lebow, University coordinator
for the event.
Lebow added that Peace Corps recruiters will also be on
campus during the activities.

In response to University President
Harold Shapiro's recent concern with
creating a "smaller University," Prof.
James Miller suggested Monday con-
centrating the school's resources on its
strong programs as a means of
reaching that goal.
Miller, of the Center for Studies in
Higher Education, said that the
University must make a choice bet-
ween spreading its limited resources
throughout all its departments, or con-
centrating those resources in its strong
areas and reducing the size and number
of programs.

"WE MUST MAINTAIN the
strengths of the University if we want to
attract funds and resources," he said.
In presenting his views to the Senate
Advisory Committee on University Af-
fairs, Miller said, "Its very easy to let
strength erode." He added that in order
to attract students, faculty, and funds,
the University must show its strengths.
Miller said that in order to retain
national prominence for the University,
certain areas would have to be phased
down or out in favor of others.

Fruit for thought
What if Isaac Newton had been wearing a helmet?
Suppose he was sitting under a breadfruit tree? What if he
had just said "ouch!" and "gosh darnit!," and then
shrugged the whole thing off when the apple clipped him?
Well, we'd be without the law of gravity, of course, but we
also might not have labelled the apple a special fruit. As it
is though, there are all sorts of apply by-products, and
everybody is trying to stretch the fruit's uses. But for the

No parking
A doctor who tried to park his car in a Philadelphia
factory parking lot learned a hard lesson in "buy
Americaan" thinking when his 1977 Datsun was towed last
weekend. Dr. George Ralow left his car in a Budd Co.
parking lot which, unbeknownst to Ralow, has a ban on
foreign cars. "We're a supplier to the American auto in-
dustry," explained plant manager Fred Glassford. "The
American auto industry is really our bread and butter."
The company also makes equipment for mass transit
systems, and has had a tough time keeping up with foreign

suburbia for a short, but eventual visit last week, is no dif-
ferent. The moose, which sauntered out of the Vermont
woods, snuck across the border to up-state New York, and
mosied through the suburbs there. Opened-mouthed
residents gaped in astonishment as the moose cut through
their backyards, and neatly ducked under their
clotheslines, but the children at the local school were
delighted by the unexpected guest. The moose was soon ac-
companied by an entourage of environmental and wildlife
experts, who kept their fingers securely planted on the
triggers of tranquilizer guns. The creature made several
charges at the officials and then left his pursuers gasping in
the remaining clouds of dust. When last spotted. the animal
