Jordan kills Syrian

BEIRUT, Lebanon (UPI)-Jordan
rejected Syria's terms for withdrawing
troops from the border yesterday
and reports from Damascus indicated
the Syrians were still marshalling their,
forces at the frontier.
However, there was no indication

that the two Arab countries, their
troops faced off on either side of the
border were about to go to war.
THE Kuwaiti News Agency quoted
Jordanian Information Minister Adnan
Abu Odeh as saying Amman had turned
down the Syrian conditions for ending
the confrontation, including a demand
that Jordan cease assisting the Moslem
Brotherhood Organization.
Syria has accused Jordan of "ar-
ming, supporting, and training" mem-
bers of the banned brotherhood, which
Damascus has Blamed for a number of
sabotage attacks in Syrian cities.
Syria also demanded Jordan make no
effort to speak on behalf of the
Palestine Liberation Organization.
"ACCEPTING these conditions
would in effect mean admitting these
allegations ... being made by Syria,"

Abu Odeh said. In a separate interview
with the Jordanian news agency, Abu
O'deh denied Jordan had even received
any Syrian demands.
"Jordan did not receive any con-
ditions and no one has conveyed to it
any conditions," he said.
He said Syria had used allegations
over the issues of the Moslem
Brotherhood and the PLO "to justify
their massing of troops on the border
with Jordan."
HE DENIED Jordan was backing the
Moslem Brotherhood and said Jordan
still considered the PLO the sole
representative of the Palestinian
people-"a basic decision which cannot
be contradicted."
The rejection appeared to jeopardize
peace moves led by Saudi Arabian
prince Abdullah Bin Abdel Aziz, the

I offer,
Saudi national guarad commander who
traveled to Damascus and then to Am-
man in a bid to defuse the situation.
Observers in Damascus said the
Saudi mediation had succeeded in
preventing a military incident "at least
provisionally," but that attempts to
ease tension and restore normal
relations were "still standing at zero
Syria had an estimated 50,000 troops,
fully one-fourth of its armed forces,
backed by some 1,100 Soviet-made
tanks poised along the border.
Despite Western news reports
Tuesday that Syria had begun a partial
withdrawal from the frontier, official
sources in Damascus said military
preparations were still under way and
that any reports to the contrary were
"not worth commenting on."

commandos, backed 'by rocket-firing
gunboats and helicopters that lit the
way with flares, stormed ashore here
yesterday in a predawn attack on
Palestinian guerrilla positions. There
were reports of up to 12 deaths and
guerrillas said the Israelis left behind
"a lot of blood," indicating casualties
among the raiders.
Israel's military command in Tel
Aviv claimed an unspecified number of
guerrillas were killed in the "com-
plicated and sophisticated" nighttime
attack on the Mediterranean coast 12
miles south of Beirut. But it said all
Israeli troops returned safely after am-

WASHINGTON (AP) - President-
elect Ronald Reagan has settled on
retiring Sen. Richard Schweiker to
head the Department of Health and
Human Services, sources close to the
Reagan transition team said last night.
Schweiker (R-Pa.), who Reagan
named as his vice presidential running
mate shortly . before the 1976
Republican National Convention, had
reportedly asked Reagan for the job
during a meeting two weeks ago.
SCHWEIKER, 54, refused yesterday
to confirm or deny that he had been of-
fered the post.
"I'm not going to speculate on any
Cabinet appointment," he told a repor-
ter on Capitol Hill.

died. It was not an appropriate action," Nissen said. "We'
now have to go back to point zero."
LSA Junior Chris Hodge, a student board member, was
surprised to hear of-Nissen's remarks. "It'll never be a two-
thirds majority," he said. "There was a distinct division
between the students and the'faculty. It will always be like
A STUDENT may presently drop a class between the four-
th and ninth weeks of a semester with a counselor's approval,
but a "W," signifying a withdrawal, will appear on the
student's transcript.
After the ninth week, a student must appear before a com-
mittee of three counselors who determine whether the drop is
After yesterday's vote was taken, the student members
had planned to review studies from past LSA student gover-
nments that concerned student opinion on drop-add
deadlines. One popular alternative for the new deadline is six
weeks, they said.
A MOTION for a new deadline is expected to come in
January when the board will discuss the matter again.
Any proposal by the board that effects a change in the
faculty code, such as the extension of the drop-add deadline,
would have to be approved by the LSA faculty at its monthly
.Administrative Board student members object to the "W"
recorded on transcripts when, students drop a class in the
fourth to ninth week period, and contend students are

justifiably concerned with grades'.
"I THINK everyone (faculty members) tends to say that
grades don't matter. But if you ask the students, or if you ask
me, the grades do matter," said LSA sophomore Emily Gale,
a student representative on the board.
But faculty members on the Board contend an extension of
the so-called "free" drop-add affords students the oppor-
tunity to manipulate their grade point.
Board Chairman Hugh Green, a professor in the English
department, was quoted in the minutes of last week's
meeting as saying that extending the deadline allows "some
sort of bail-out after the student has an idea of where he or
she stood in the class."
BIOLOGY PROF. John Allen said yesterday that students
should be more concerned with what they can learn in a cour-
se, than what their grade will be. Allen said students are
"short-changing themselves" by being preoccupied with
Nissen predicted the faculty would not be inclined to make
radical changes in the drop-add deadline because of
budgetary considerations. He explained that a.deadline ex-
tension would mean more paperwork as more students use
drop-add. A later deadline would also mean empty spaces in
classes, since dropping a class after six weeks would be
much easier than adding a class.
Helen Crafton, an LSA academic counselor and non-voting
member of the Board, stressed that students sometimes need
extra time to determine if they have adequate background
for a course.

Schweiker, who was known as a
liberal Republican until accepting
Reagan's unusual pre-convention offer
of the vice-presidential spot, has moved
sharply to the political right since 1976,
establishing a strongly conservative
voting record.
Sources close to the transition said
that while Reagan had decided on Sch-
weiker for the health and human ser-
vices job, it was not clear if the Pen-
nsylvania Republican had accepted the
post or even whether the offer had been
formally made. The sources asked not
to be named.
Transition sources have said Reagan
has also decided on Caspar Wein-
berger, budget director during the
Nixon administration, to be defense
secretary; his personal attorney
William French Smith to be attorney
general; New York banker Walter
Wriston to be treasury secretary; for-
mer NATO commander Alexander
Haig Jr. to be secretary of state; and
Reagan campaign manager William
Casey to head the CIA.

Dohrn spoke to their parents Tuesday.
After Dohrn was arraigned on nine
charges - seven stemming from the
1969 "Days of Rage" in Chicago and
two more for jumping bail - she and
Ayers read brief statements to repor-
ters, refusing to answer any questions
about their past.
"I believe in the necessity of un-
derground work, so I am returning to
open life with a sense of loss as well as
hope. I look forward to spending time
with family and friends, new and old,"
she said.
... GIVEN THE system which per-
petuates such harsh oppression and suf-
fering, rebellion is inevitable and con-
tinuous," she said. ". .. I remain
committed to the struggle ahead."
Circuit Judge Fred Suria, who
-.reduced her bail from $380,000,000 said
"from past experience, I have found
that the people who turn themselves in,
in fact abide by the conditions of the

bond." As condition of the bond, Ken-
nedy was required to list for his clients
a Chicago address in addition to a New
York City address of 528 W. 123rd St.
Dohrn faces no outstanding federal
charges. However, local felony charges
of aggravated battery, mob action, and,
solicitation of mob action are pending,
