'Begin predicts
fall elections
for Israel




from AP and UPI
JERUSALEM - Prime Minister
Menachem Begin said yesterday new
elections, in Israel were inevitable,
possibly in November.
Israel radio quoted Begin in the
knesset as saying new elections, could
not be avoided following Tuesday's tied
no-confidence vote in parliament that
brought the 68-year-old leader to the
brink of resignation.
Though under law a tie constitutes a
victory for Begin's coalition, the prime

Begin "accepted the verdict," accoding

Meanwhile, violence escalated on
Israeli-occupied lands.
Israelis shot and killed three more
Arabs and wounded 10 yesterday in the
worst day of violence in week-long
*rioting in the occupied West Bank of the
Jordan and the Gaza Strip.
It raised the casualty toll to five
Arabs dead and 21 wounded in six days.
An Israeli border patrol also cap-
tured three Arb guerrillas en route
from Lebanon to Israel's northern bor-

... angers Palestinians
In the West Bank, where two
Palestinian rioters were shot and killed
earlier this week, Israeli civilians
opened fire on Arab demonstrators who
threw stones at the Israelis' Ear in the
village of Bani Naim, east of Hebron.
The latest strife stems from a shift in
Israeli policy according to officials. The
old tradition of letting West Bankers
think and say what they like is dead.
The Israelis have set out to uproot PLO
influence in the West Bank and promote
a new, moderate Arab force.
In his eight months in office, Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon has cracked
down on the PLO while promising the
moderates Israeli protection if they
come forward.
He has sought out moderates among
the politically passive rural population
which makes up 70 percent of the West

GUATEMALA CITY (AP)- The new military jun-
ta threw out Guatemala's constitution yesterday and
suspended all political party activities but promised
to respect human rights, the state radio said.
The rannouncement said the three-man jun-
ta-which seized power from a military regime that
had governed under a succession of generals chosen
in tainted elections-would rule by decree until fur-
ther notice.
THE POLITCAL stance of the new military rulers
was not immediately clear. They said their coup was
prompted by corruption and election fraud, and they

promised to prepare the country for new elections.
The junta planned to announce a "statue of gover-
nment" under which it would operate until a new con-.
stitution is written and ratified, the radio said.
Yesterday the junta named a six-man advisory
council of military men, believed to represent the
junior officers who spearheaded the overthrow of
Gen. Fernando Romeo Lucas Garcia's regime in
Tuesday's coup. They include officers from the army
and air force, ranking from colonel, to second
HOURS AFTER the coup, the junta dissolved

Guatemala's 61-seat single-house Congress. Yester-
day's announcement prohibits all activities by
political parties.
Critics abroad claimed the Lucas Garcia gover-
nment tolerated rightist "death squads," vigilantes
who hunted leftists or suspected leftists. About 300
people a month died in political violence last year,
most of them thought to be victims of the death
Because the Guatemalan government refused to
accept human rights conditions, the United States

Grad, UG Li reserve desks
to be combined as part of cuts

In a step - toward reaching budget
reduction goals of the University's'
Five-Year Plan, library administrators .
are combining the graduate and.un-
dergraduate reserve desks in the Un-
dergraduate Library.
The new University Library Reserve
Service, scheduled to be open before
September, will be on the third floor of
the UGLi in what is now the Multi-
Purpose Room.
Administrators said they decided to

combine the two reserve desks after an
investigation revealed that some ser-
vices were being duplicated. Con-
solidation will save about $50,000 in per-
sonnel and processing costs, according
to Bruce Frier, Chairman of the LSA
Library Committee.
The empty space in the Harlan Hat-
cher Graduate Library will be filled by
a new Government Documents Unit,
according to library officials. The new
service will identify, locate, and inter-
pret government documents infor-

mation, and direct patrons to another
location if the material is not in the
grad library.
Although many grad students and
faculty members are sympathetic to
financial concerns, Frier said the
change has brought an angry response
from many library patrons who are
worried about the atmosphere in the
new reserve service's location.
"The UGLi has no decent place to
work," said Phoebe Frosch, a Ph.D.

Local groups fight world hunger

Maynard Street. The irony should be obvious.

Several local organizations have
joined forces this week to bring home
the problem of world hunger through
conferences and other activities during
Ann Arbor's third annual World Hunger
"People tend to look at world hunger
as something very distant from them,"
said Cheryl Newell, a member of the
Committee Concerned with World
Hunger. "But by changing your diet

habits, you affect the whole world."
THE COMMITTEE is asking mem-
bers of the community to fast
tomorrow, so they will have "some idea
of how it feels not being able to put
something in your mouth when you
want to," Newell said.
"Hopefully, people who don't eat any
food will give their food money to the
committee, to give to Oxfam and other
organizations," she explained.

derdeveloped countries, and organizes

Counterfeit bill
When a jaguar at the Salisbury Zoo in Salisbury, Md. ap-

officials found just the thing to fit the bill-fiberglass. Now,
one year after Paul was outfitted with the counterfeit bill,
zoo director George Speidel said the pelican is doing just
fine, thank you. "We have to inspect it every now and then,
but so far it hasn't needed replacing," Speidel said of the
man-made schnoz. The new bill for Paul has meant a
respite for zoo workers. When he was beakless, Paul had to
