against Syrian positions.
In the northern port of Tripoli, wit-
nesses said Israeli fighter-bombers
swept low over two Palestinian refugee
camps without dropping any bombs,
scattering the residents and
'demonstrating Israel's overwhelming
air superiority.
Beirut security sources said the jets
bombed one camp but there was no in-
dependent confirmation.

spokesman Larry Spakes said the
United Staes was urging "all concerned
to avoid provocations and to exercise
restraint and thereby contribute to the
hopes of the citizens of the region for
progress toward peace."
The military command in Tel Aviv
said the planes destroyed a Syrian

The Israeli planes struck only 2%/
miles from the Syrian border, hitting
the town of Masnaa on the main Beirut-

Damascus highway.
dBeirut radio said at least 40 to 50
people died in the Israeli attacks, which
were the heaviest in the Bekaa since
July 22 and the heaviest Israeli attack
anywhere since the Aug. 12 cease-fire
ended the bombardment of west Beirut.
"The Israeli warplanes first ap-
peared at 7:30 a.m." UPI correspon-
dent Daid Zenian reported from
Chtaura. "The air strike was brief and
there was no response from the Syrians
in the area..

"There's no cohesive quality to the
program with professors scattered in
other departments."
Richard Nesper, another Ph.D. can-
didate in geography also was skeptical.
"Some undergrads probably think
nothing is being offered," he said. "I
think it (geography) certainly has an
uncertain future."
Associate LSA Dean Jens Zorn
acknowledged there is some
disillusionment among former
geography professors and graduate
students, but said, "It's just going to
take a while to rally people back to the
So far, there has been no delay in the
formation of the program, in spite of
the lack of a formal approval, accor-
ding to Kish. The major problem
remains attracting students to courses
that many assume no longer exist.
"In the majority of courses offered,
the decline (in the number of students)
is noticeable and it can only be at-
tributed to the fact that people think
geography is dead," Kish said.
"We are definitely in the business of
training undergraduates," Kish said.
"This, by the way, is still in demand.
Right now, people need to know that
we're here."

vote - and vote Democratic. "The best
,owe can do right now is to try to get the
(Democratic) majority back into the
Senate," he said.
STILLS THEN went on to sing four
-songs, including "Teach Your
"'hildren" and "For What It's Worth."
Wr, After Stills finished his mini-concert,
bout a third of the more than 200-
-person audience got up and left, leaving
t much smaller crowd to listen to the
Democratic senator from Flint.
Mary Rowland, head of the Univer-'
sity's chapter of College Democrats
which sponsored the rally, seemed con-
Jused about so many people leaving
before Riegle spoke again. "Maybe
they thought it was over," she said.
But it wasn't. Riegle called for a
'nuclear arms freeze and for "new
priorities," such as student financial
aid, in the federal budget. "David
Stockman does not represent the best

of what this state has to offer," Riegle
said. Not unpredictably, he also called
for more student activism, reminiscent
of theVietnam era.
RICH ANTHONY, deputy co-director
of Riegle's campaign, admitted the
people who came to see Riegle were
probably "proportionally even" with
the people who came to hear Stills.
"I came here to see Stephen. I didn't
know much about Rieble," said Paul
Morton, an LSA junior.
Likewise for Lynn Maisee. "I'm a
Democrat, but I really came to see
Stephen Stills,' she said. "Still, I'm
glad I saw Riegle."
At least one person came to hear the
senator speak. "I came because I'm a
voter and watned to hear Riegle," said
Susan Rodriguez, an instructor at the
English Language Institute.
STUMPING FOR Riegle isn't Still's
first political endeavor by a long shot.

The singer said he's been active in
politics since campaigning for John
Kennedy in 1960. This year, he's spoken
and performed at about political even-
ts, including campaigning for
Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy,
California Gov. Jerry Brown - who is
running for the senate - and activist
Tom Hayden-who's running for a seat
on California's state assembly.
Stills has also formed a political ac-
tion committee, but he says it's still "in
its embryonic stages.'
As Riegle ran out to catch a plane,
Stills closed the rally with a few more
songs. After that, he informally
discussed and debated politics in a
"bus-door bullshit.session" with a small
group of people who remained.
He ended his stay at the Union,,
however, like most celebrities: He
signed autographs.

Bus routes cause delays for students

minutes apart-now it's 15 minutes,"
Baits resident Todd Langen said as he
waited for his bus at the C.C. Little bus
Complaints of overcrowding and long
rides aren't new, but the University's
transportation department has been
faced with several problems which
have made life more difficult for
students who depend on the bus systema
to get them to classes on time.
Construction on the new University
Hospital, which lies in between Central
Campus and North Campus, brought
changes in the traditional bus route
along Fuller Rd., forcing drivers to use
a longer route along Plymouth and
Broadway instead for the past few
days. -
"WE'RE REALLY in a mess. We're
just not running on schedule," said
University bus foreman Robert Kepler.
Kepler said that although drivers
were able to switch to the shorter Fuller
Road route yesterday, he anticipated
further delays and changes in the route
as construction progresses.
"I don't know how many hundreds of
calls we had on the first couple days,"
Kepler said, as students complained of
the unusually long ride.
In addition to the extended ride,
students complained of overcrowding
on the buses, particularly during rush
hours in the morning and at lunch.
"It's been packed every morning,"
said business student Remos Lenio,
who was not prepared for the jammed
buses after growing used to the smaller
crowd during summer term.
SOME CLAIM that the crowds may

be due partly to an increase in the num-
ber of engineering students with classes
on North Campus, as the School of
Engineering has moved two more
departments to its North Campus
Elaine Harden, assistant to
engineering Dean James Duderstat,
said that school officials contacted the
transportation department last spring
about the increase in students attending
class on North Campus.
"They assured us that there were
ample buses to accommodate us,"
Harden said.
Both the chemical engineering depar-,
tment and materials and metallurgy
department have moved their faculties
and some of their classes to North
Prof. Dale Briggs, the undergraduate
program advisor for the chemical
engineering department, said he
estimated that most of the 450 students
in the department's undergraduate
program have at least one class on Nor-
th Campus this term.
"CLEARLY, they're going to have a
bigger demand (for the buses) than
there used to be," Briggs said.
The materials and metallurgy depar-
tment has moved its upper-level cour-
ses to North Campus, involving 60 to 70
students, but program advisor Wilbur
Bigelow said many of the introductory

courses for the program are still held
on Central Campus to accommodate
the freshmen and sophomores.
Bus foreman Kepler said that the
transportation department has not
made any cuts in the number of buses
traveling the route this year, and
University transportation Manager
John Ellsworth has said that the depar-
tment is not expecting any budget cuts
at this time.
DEAN'S assistant Harden said that
a task force is scheduled to meet soon to
discuss North Campus problems, such
as bus service difficulties.
Meanwhile, students may have to
rearrange their schedules to avoid peak
lunch hours or to ensure that they get to
class on time.
"I've ridden the buses for four years,
and it doesn't bother me anymore,"
said Baits resident Langen.
"It's the beginning of the year-
what can you expect?" said Northwood
resident Lenio.
"It's my first semester here, and
already I don't like taking the bus,"
said LSA sophomore Cheryl Chambers,
also a Northwood resident. "But I'd
rather take the bus than drive."
