'non-sexist'

On the eve of the Jewish Passover,
last Wednesday, Goodman turned up
at Ada Cohen's small hotel in the
Jerusalem suburb- of Beit Hakerem.
He asked to leave his belongings and
Come back tostay the weekend.
On Sunday' morning, he put on his
uniform and checked out early, Mrs.
Cohen said. "He had a gun, and he
told me he wouldn't be back for a long
time."
ISRAEL ARMY radio says he had
some target practice in a nearby
forest before heading across town to
the Temple Mount.

After the shooting, in which two
Arabs died and nine were wounded,
Jerusalem Police Chief Yoshua Caspi
got to the gunman, took his weapon,
and heard him say:"So many of my
family and friends are being killed. I
had to take revenge."
The attack on Temple Mount,
Islam's third-holiest shrine, im-
mediately sparked Moslem rioting in
Jerusalem that continued yesterday
and spread to the West Bank and
Gaza.

LONDON (AP)- A new edition of Roget's
Thesaurus, the 13-year-old book of synonyms and an-
tonyms, eliminates categories that its editor says are
sexist, biased, prejudiced, jaundiced, illiberal and
narrow-minded.
"Mankind" becomes "humankindl" a "coun-
tryman" is a "country dweller" and a "rich man" is
a "rich' person" in the first revision of the British
reference book in two decades. Publication is Thur-
sday.
"IT REFLECTS the language of the 80s," editor
Susan Lloyd said Monday in a telephone interview
from her combined home and office in the Norfolk
town of Harleston.
"It makes much more explicit the existence of
women. Before, they were just assumed."
Lloyd, a 41-year-old former librarian and teacher
with a master's degree in French literature, is a
homemaker and mother of two teen-agers. She spent
3 years adding or reclassifying 20;000 words and
phrases for the f,247-page revised volume.
IN ADDITION to trying to eliminate sexist word
groupings, she introduced scores of expressions that
have gained currency in the past 20 years: punks,

solar panel, genetic engineering, test-tube baby,
jumbo jet and multinationals, to name a few.
The revised volume also contains entries under the
new headings of micro-electronics and data
processing.
"Language undergoes enormous changes in 20
years," Lloyd said.
THE THESAURUS has sold an estimated 20 million
copies since it was first compiled by Dr. Peer Mark
R9get, an English physician and lexicographer, and
published in 1852 as the "Thesaurus of English Words
and Phrases."
It classified words according to ideas and can be
used as a dictionary of likes and opposites or by those
searching for a word they can't recall.
Under the'keyword "drunkenness," for example,
entries include "well-oiled, pickled, canned, bottled,
stewed, fried, well-lubricated, smashed, sozzled and
soaked:"
THE CATEGORY is preceded by synoayms for
sobriety: "water-drinker, teetotaler, abstainer,
prohibitionist, pussyfoot."
Lloyd was hired by Longman publishers to edit the
first revision since 1962 after answering an adver-
tisementin the educational supplement of the London

Times.
Lloyd said she did not attempt to eliminate all wor-
ds that might be considered sexist, but rather
changed keywords-the category headings-to make
them "as wide-ranging and neutral as possible." -
"RESEARCH HAS shown that if you say 'coun-:
tryman,' people think of a man, not a woman. Hence,
the change to 'country dweller' to include "men,
women, dogs, what-have-you," she said.
Lloyd said she kept some masculine keywords,,,
such as "master," because she could think of no
suitable substitute. " 'Mistress' has an entirely dif
-ferent meaning," she observed.
Asked whether some men might object to the'
changes, Lloyd said: "If men take offense, I suppose>
it's because they thought 'mankind' meant 'man' and
not 'woman,' and that's the whole point."
Lloyd said she did not consider herself a feminist in
the sense of someone active in the women's
movement.
"I'm keen on women's rights and men's rights,"
she said. "I'm not making a statement. I'm just
reflecting the changes in the languages."
The revised Roget's will sell in London for $14.30 or
$21.50 for the deluxe edition.

GEO, 'U' bargainers to
resume contract talks

(Continued from Page 1)
BUT GEO spokesman Ken Plochin-
ski said yesterday that ruling does not
prohibit the GEO from representing
graduate research assistants, and that
the GEO would continue to ask for their
inclusion in the organization.
GEO has offered several proposals
for standardizing teaching conditions
for its members throughout the Univer-
sity. Their proposals include
establishing standards for maximum
class sizes and creating training
programs for teaching assistants.
"There's a wide variation among
departments" as to class size
requirements, a member of the GEO
bargaining team, Jannine Moore, said.
She said GEO would like to set class
size limits at 25 students with a depar-
tmental average of 20 students per
class.
Experts say
Hackett
'nompetent'
for trial
(Continued from Page 1)
would "certainly be one of the defenses
used" in the case. This defense will be
used regardless of the Forensic Cen-
ter's final findings, he said.
Dr. Lynn Blunt, clinical director of
the center, described Hackett as
'acutely mentally disturbed.' The
shooting suspect, who is at the Forensic
Center on a 60-day diagnostic order,
may spend up to 15 months under
psychiatric care.
If, during this time, the doctors
decide Hackett can cooperate with his
defense counsel and understand the
.charges against him, he will stand trial.
The maximum sentences for the
charges are life imprisonment for the
assault charge, and five yers for the
charge of property destruction.

GEO is also suggesting both Univer-
sity-wide and departmental-level pre-
training for teaching assistants at the
University's expense.
Under the current system, cards are
inserted in graduate student assistant's
mailboxes. The graduate students
must mail back the cards indicating
whether or not they wish to be members
of the union.
Under the proposed system,
graduates would be given cards to mail
back only if they dlid not wish to be
members of the union. Both union and
non-union graduate student assistants
have to pay fees to GEO.
GEO is also proposing the establish-
ment of committees including GEO
members to see that departments meet
affirmative action goals.
