Hunger Project
message: Every
little bit counts

Cypriot Ambassador
calls for U.S. aid

The idea that there is nothing in-
dividuals can do about the problem of
world hunger is just plain wrong, ac-
cording to local hunger groups.
Through yesterday's celebration of
World Food Day, they continued their
attempt to reach as many people as
possible with the message that every
little bit counts.
A major goal of the Hunger Project,
the organization that initiated World
Food Day, is "trying to create
awareness, according to Barbara
Wise, a local member. This planet is
able to support its inhabitants, she said,
if people commit themselves to ending
"IF THERE were enough people per-
sonally committed, there wouldn't be
the problem. Changing lifestyles even a
little bit would make a difference," she
For an example, Wise quoted a
national grain publication, "if
Americans were to substitute chicken
for one-third of the beef they eat, they
would save enough grain to adequately
feed 100,000 people."
Yesterday, the Hunger Project set up
a booth at the Farmer's Market, hoping
to draw more people to its cause by

spreading the word. Already, Ann Ar-
bor has a healthy number of
organizations concerned with the
problem, and all of them are working to
heighten awareness.
ON OCT. 3, 1,100 participants in the
annual CROP walk raised more than
$40,000 for local and international
hunger coalitions, according to Wise.
Another group, Oxfam, is sponsoring
a Fast for a World Harvest Day Nov. 18.
According to Bob Greg, a member of
the Committee Concerned with World
Hunger, efforts to organize a fast in
University dormitories that day are
under way. Students will donate money
for the meals they skip while fasting,
Greg said.
"Of the money raised, we'll send half
to Oxfam, and the rest we'll divide up
locally," he said.
ORGANIZERS of the various ac-
tivities aimed at alleviatinguworld
hunger stress the importance of in-
volvement. "People can make such a
tremendous difference, but they just
don't realize it," Wise said.
"Educate yourself,' says Tom
Hayes, coordinator for the Interfaith
Council for Peace, which organized the
CROP walk. "There are certain ways of
living that are healthy for the world."

Nearly 100 Greek-Americans
gathered in the Union Ballroom yester-
day to hear Andreas Jacovides, the
Cyprus ambassador to the United
States, speak out against the continued
Turkish occupation of his country.
"Cyprus is a test case for aggression
and injustice against a small country
by a larger one," Jacovides said. "The
Cypriots have turned to the U.N. for
support, support which has yet to be
CYPRUS, A small island located in
the Mediterranean between Greece and
Turkey, was ruled by Greece for 6,000
years until it gained independence in
1960. Turkish forces invaded in 1974,
and now occupy 40 percent of the island.
In addition to calling for the United
States to push for support from the
United Nations, Jacovides said
American grassroots support is.impor-
tant. "Raise your voice and demand
that your taxes not be used to subsidize
aggression in Cyprus," he said.
Arbor, he said, because it "raises the

awareness of the people" and because
"I find that addressing students is
Congressman William Broomfield
(R-Birmingham), a supporter 'of
Cyprus, was unable to make his
scheduled appearance for the Cyprus
Bay forum. He sent a statement,
however, saying that a "peaceful
solution in Cyprus is long overdue."
Cyprus Day is meant to be a painful
reminder of what has been happenihg
on the island during the last several
years, he wrote.
Prof. Demetrios Politis, founder of
the American-Hellenic Congress, which
co-sponsored they event, accused
Turkey of breaking two signed
agreements with the United States by
using the arms sent to them for war.
"Unless the U.S. puts some pressure
on Turkey, I don't see a solution soon ,"
Politis said.
A film and Cypriot dancing-followed
the speeches and discussion for the
Cyprus Day event, sponsored by the
American Hellenic Congress and the
LSA Student Government.

PLO not welcome her

O1 -

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - Any Palestine
Liberation Organization representative
among an Arab League delegation due
here next week will not be welcomed by
U.S. officials, the State Department
said yesterday.
According to reports from Rabat,
Morocco, a PLO representative will be
among seven Arab diplomats who will

journey to Washington next Friday for
talks with President Reagan.
"WE WOULD not welcome any
member of the PLO as part of the
delegation nor do we expect any
representative of the PLO to be a mem-
ber of the delegation," said Susan Pit-
tman, a State Department
The U.S. position is that the PLO

"e, says ta
must accept United Nations Resolution
242 calling for Arab countries to
recognize the right of Israel to exist and
to have safe borders. Until the PLO ac-
cepts this, the United States will refuse
to hold direct talks with its leaders.
Miss Pittman declined to discuss
what action the United States might
take if the Arab League delegation in-
cludes a PLO representative other than

Loan rates drop, no change expected in student use
(Continued from Page 1

repaying interest 60 days after getting the loan.
The PLUS program has more liberal eligibility
rules but a higher rate and less attractive terms than
the far larger Guaranteed Student Loan program. In-
terest is nine percent on guaranteed loans, and
repayment does not begin until after graduation,
Zimmerman said.
"WE DO recommend it if other alternatives are
exhausted, but usually people would rather take a
personal loan than use PLUS," Zimmerman added.

In the fiscal year ending September 30, banks made
$94.6 million in PLUS loans to 24,998 parents and
11,770 students, mainly graduate and professional
students, department figures show.
The program expanded dramatically since last
year. From January 1981, when it began, through
Sept. 30 of last year, only $27 million in loans were
made to about 11,000 people.
THE PLUS borrowing limit is $3,000 for parents of
undergraduates, $5,000 for graduate students, and

$2,500 for self-supporting undergraduates. Loans are
made through banks.
The loans mainly help students in high-priced
schools, either professional schools or private un-
dergraduate colleges, many of whom use PLUS to
supplement guaranteed student loans, he said. The
maximum limit on guaranteed loans-$2,500 for un-
dergraduates and $5,000 for graudate students-is riot
enough when some medical schools, for example,
charge $12,000 for tuition, Martin said.

Guerrillas assault Salvadoran capital

(Continued from Page 1)
telephone exchange boxes and
dynamited two power poles in northern
and central San Salvador late Friday,
blacking out part of the capital for a
short period.
EIGHT MILES north of the city,
guerrillas burned a trailer, bombed a
firetruck and fought a half-hour gun
battle with national guardsmen, a civil
defense patrolman in the nearby town
of Apopa said. He said two guerrillas
were killed and two guardsmen woun-
About 4,000 troops backed by artillery
and fighter-bombers battled guerrillas
in Morazan province, some 120 miles
northeast of the capital, in a counterat-
tack after rebels overran three nor-
thern towns, a local commander said.
In its Oct. 13 issue, the Daily
mistakenly reported that the non-
teaching staff salary increase of $2
million would be split among all the
clerical and technical workers. Ac-
tually, the $2 million comes only from
the University's General Fund, and will
go to 3,500 workers. The other 8,000 non-
teaching staff will receive propor-
tionate increases from other funds.

A Defense Ministry spokesman said
that troops had killed an American in
Morazan, who he claimed was fighting
with the guerrillas.
COL. MARCO Aurelio Gonzalez said
a fair-skinned man with Anglo-Saxon
features was shot dead by troops after
he tried to escape an arrest and
allegedly seized a soldier's weapon and
began firing.
The man was identified as Michael
Kline by the signature on about $500 in
travelers' checks he was carrying.
"They fired a warning shot, but he
shot back and was killed," Gonzalez
said. The man - dressed in khakis,
with long hair and sandals - had been
arrested for "looking suspicious" while
riding on a bus 100 miles east of the
