In an attempt to "bring to Ann Arbor the contem-
porary life of Africa," the African Students
Association (ASA), Michigan Student Assembly, and
Trotter House are sponsoring Africa Week 1982,
beginning tonight.
The week-long series of events will stress the
social, political, and economic climate in Africa over
the last 25 years, according to ASA president Kwami
Wampah, a University graduate education student.
"This week will be geared to teach the non-African
Ann Arbor residents about Africa," he said. "The
viewers will have a chance to update their knowledge
of the continent with things that usually don't come
through the media."
AT 7:30 tonight, in Auditorium C of Angell Hall,
Leonard Suransky, of the University's Committee for
African Studies and formerly a citizen of South
Africa, will speak on the political situation in that

country and show the film Generations of Resistance.
Amin Ladha, former president of ASA said,
"Basically the entire week will bring awareness to
the student body of the ruthless government
operating in (South) Africa," referring to the gover-
nment apartheid policy of racial segregation.
University Political Science Professor Ali Mazrui
will give a lecture on "The Burning Political Issues of
Africa Today" at 8 p.m. tomorrow in the Michigan
Union Ballroom.
A SYMPOSIUM with the theme "African
Development-Problems and Paradoxes" will be
held in the Michigan Union Ballroom Thursday at
7:30 p.m.
Moderator Raise Jakpor, a University political
science graduate student, will host Chris Dede, a
University graduate and engineer for SIRC, Inc.,
speaking on "The Development of Industrial
Technology in Africa," University English Professor

Lemuel Johnson will describe "The Political Ob-
stacles to Development," education Professor
Teshome Wagaw will discuss "Education and
African Development," and Assistant Political
Science Professor Ernest Wilson will address "Africa
and the World Economy."
An African arts and crafts exhibition will be held at
Trotter House, 1443 Washtenaw, both on Friday and
Saturday from 1-6:30 p.m. "There will be many
things displayed from Africa," said Ladha.
About 120 members of the ASA have brought
African arts from their homes to display at the
exhibition, Ladha said, and some of the members will
also personally be selling some of their items.
The ASA is comprised of students who have come to
the University from Africa for their education.
Students have come from such African countries as
Nigeria and Uganda and will return to their
homeland after they finish their schooling.

-A1C Begin 'never imagined' massacre

JERUSALEM (AP) - Prime
Minister Menachem Begin testified
yesterday he feared revenge killings
against Lebanese Moslems for the
murder of Christian leader Bashir
Gemayel, but never imagined a
slaughter of Palestinian civilians.
Begin also told the commission in-
vestigating Israel's conduct during the

nid-September massacre that he had
no advance knowledge of the Israeli
military's decision to send Christian
Phalange militias into the Sabra and
Chatilla refugee camps in Beirut.
But he defended the decision by
Defense Minsiter Ariel Sharon and
military Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Raphael
Eytan, repeatedly asserting that "it oc-
curred to no one that atrocities might

be committed."
Begin's 47-minute testimony, broad-
cast live on Israeli radio, shed little new
information on events leading to the
Phalangist operation, -.which he said
was designed to sweep the camps for
Palestinian guerrilla resistance.
The three-man panel closely in-
terrogated Begin on what his gover-
nment knew about the massacre and
when, questions which many Israelis
anguished over when the demanded a
judicial inquiry into the murders.
Begin had opposed a full-scale in-
vestigation, but relented under public
pressure and rumblings within his
coalition government.

IN BRIEF
Complied from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
De Lorean pleads innocent
LOS ANGELES- Maverick automaker John De Lorean pleaded innocent
yesterday to nine charges of cocaine trafficking and racketeering.
His lawyer said prosecutors are generating unfair publicity about the
case.
"He will present a careful and complete presentation of the facts in this
case at the time of trial," attorney Seth Hufstedler said of De Lorean. "And
he is fully and firmly convinced on doing so, a fair-minded jury will find him
innocent."
Hufstedler was one of four lawyers who flanked De Lorean as a magistrate
gave him a copy of the federal grand jury indictment accusing him in a $24
million cocaine distribution deal.
Outside the courthouse, Rufstedler told reporters that although the defen-
se would not say anything about the evidence until the trial, "You should
keep in mind . . . much of what you see and read is propaganda by the
prosecution and that it's not a fair appraisal of what the facts are.
Commission proposes relief
for Social Security system
WASHINGTON- The National Commission .on Social Security Reform
released yesterday a laundry list of methods to shore up the system, ranging
from higher gasoline and whiskey taxes to belt-tightening measures for the
36 million beneficiaries.
The 15-member panel is expected to pick and choose later this week from
among the options laid out in the background book prepared by its staff.
The list suggests ways to revamp the system, providing estimates of
savings and how much each idea could contribute to eradicating Social
Security's deficits during the 1980s and over the next 75 years.
The menu includes such unpopular possibilities as gradually raising the.,
normal retirement age of 65, cutting cost-of-living increases and phasing in a
tax on Social Security benefits.
Noticeably absent from the list is any plan to make Social Security volun-
tary or to jettison its so-called "welfare" aspects, such as the 50 percent
spouses' share of benefits or the skewed formula that gives low-income
workers relatively more for their payroll tax dollar.
The commission is scheduled to hold a three-day decision-making meeting
starting Thursday in Alexandria, Va.
John Paul to visit Poland
WARSAW, Poland- In an apparent bid to defuse tension two days before a
new round of pro-Solidarity protests, the military government announced
yesterday that Pope John Paul II will visit his homeland next year.
In the southwest Solidarity union stronghold of'Wroclaw, local radio an-
nounced a major blow for the underground-the arrest of Piotr Bednarz, a
member of the 5-man national Solidarity union leadership.
The radio said Bednarz, carrying a fake identification card and a tear gas
sprayer, was arrested along with a dozen members of the Wroclaw regional
underground leadership.
Bednarz took over as Wroclaw underground chief after the arrest last
month of Wladyslaw Frasyniuk.
The announcement of the pope's visit came in a communique following a
90-minute meeting between Roman Catholic Primate Archbishop Jozef
Glemp and military chief Gen. Wojciech Jaruzelski at a government villa in
Warsaw.
Creationists roused by ACLU
HUDSONVILLE- The threat of legal action by the American Civil Liber-
ties Union prompted a surge of support for creationism teaching, Hudson-
ville Public Schools Superintendent Jack Musser said yesterday.
Local support for creationism teaching is very strong, Musser said. The
Christian Broadcasting Network's 700 Club also has offered to help the 3,300-
student district battle the ACLU if a lawsuit is filed, he said.
The 700 Club, which is broadcast on about 150 television stations and cable
television systems across the country, did not outline what support could be
provided the district, Musser said.
"They have offered their services to do battle against this thing but I don't
want to get them involved at this time," said Musser, who says he will let two
high school biology teachers continue teaching creationism until the district
is declared to be in violation of the constitution.
"We have turned the matter over to our attorney," Musser said.
Court to rule on auto safety
WASHINGTON- The Supreme Court said yesterday it will decide
whether all new automobiles sold in the United States will someday be
equipped with air bags or automatic seat belts.
At issue in a case of enormous importance for struggling automakers is
whether federal safety regulators wrongly lifted a September 1983 deadline .
for installation of such passive restraints.
A federal appeals court said yes, and reinstated the deadline.
In other matters, the nation's highest court:
" Refused to become embroiled in the glut of lawsuits growing out of the
Hyatt Regency skywalk collapse that killed 114 people and injured more
than 200 others in Kansas City last year. The justices turned away a dispute
over how the more than 300 legal actions should proceed in state and federal
courts.
" Agreed to decide whether a South Dakota man can be sentenced to life in

prison with no chance of parole for writing a phony $100 check-his sixth
conviction for a non-violent crime.
* Said it will decide whether a man convicted in the so-called Black
Liberation Army slaying of an 18-year-old hitchhiker in Jacksonville, Fla.,
eight years ago was unfairly sentenced to die.
