Pacifist urges
Jews to speak
out on Israel

By GEORGEA KOVANIS
Annexation of the West Bank and
Gaza Strip would be disastrous to
Israel, Economics Prof. Gur Offer, of
Hebrew University in Jerusalem told
about fifty students and community
members gathered at the Hillel Foun-
dation building last night.
Offer, on sabbatical at Harvard
University, said the major issue of con-
cern to Israel is whether or not to annex
the West Bank..
BUT, HE SAID, "the real issue is
what will happen with the
population.. . what should be done
with the one and one-quarter million
Arab population." Offer added that an-
nexation of the West Bank would be
"detrimental in every respect" to
Israel.
A member of the Israeli pacifist
movement, Peace Now, Offer said he
believes that if the West Bank is an-

nexed, no Arab nation will ever sign a
peace treaty with Israel.
"The risk of a permanent state of war
is a very heavy one by itself," he said.
"If we annex the West Bank, this is
going to put us in .. . a permanent state
of war," he added.
OFFER SAID the initiation of peace
in the Middle East lies in the hands of
the Arab population. "(Achieving
peace) is 95 percent the job of the
Arabs," he said.
"We can see signs of what's going to
happen if Arabs are granted citizen-
ship)," Offer said. "There are two sets
of laws in the West Bank: One for Jews
and one for Arabs." He said giving
citizenship to Arabs is not the key to
solving the war in the Middle East.
Offer urged everyone to study the
issues surrounding peace in the Middle
East. He said people should study the

State eyes black enrollment drop

LANSING (UPI) - The State Board
of Education is considering steps to
deal with a decline in black student
enrollments at Michigan colleges and
universities.
State School Superintendent Phillip
Runkel, in a memorandum to the
board, described the declines, rever-
sing affirmative action progress, as "a
serious problem." He added he also
was concerned about "similar declines
among Hispanic and Indian students."
The board has received a report
recommending establishment of pilot
programs at both the high school and
college level, but there remains some
uncertainty about actual figures on
enrollments.
AT A MEETING in January, 1982,
state education officials were presented
with figures compiled by the NAACP,
showing a decline in black enrollments
from peak levels of the 1970s at the
University, Michigan State University,
and Wayne State University.
The latest figures available to the
department show minority enrollment
at all four-year state colleges rose 3.9
percent between 1978 and 1980, an

Education Department spokesman
said.
"I don't think there's any doubt
(enrollments) are down" from the peak
reached in the mid-1970s, he said,
however. At that time, he said,
enrollments were swollen by ex-
soldiers returning from Vietnam.
THE BOARD is being asked to set up
a pilot study in a cross-section of school
districts.
It would include detailed reporting on
drop-out rates, an evaluation of coun-
seling services available to minority
students and a determination of how
high schools with "exemplary" records
managed to hold down drop-out rates
and achieve high college board scores.
Also proposed is monitoring of
enrollments by the department and
seeking funds for a pilot program on at-
tracting and retaining minority studen-
ts at four-year institutions. This pilot
program might include special campus
visits for prospective students, a sum-
mer school program to ease the tran-
sition to college and financial rewards
for institutions which retain students.
Additionally recommended are

development of a department handbook
aimed at minority students and more
direct communication with their paren-
ts on the importance of higher
education and what their children must
do to get into college.

It's on a Navy ship.
The Navy has
more than 1,900
reactor-years of nuclear
power experience -
more than anyone else
in America. The Navy
has the most sophisti-
cated nuclear equip-
ment in the world. And
the Navy operates over half of the nuclear
reactors in America.
With a nuclear program like that, you
know the Navy also offers the most compre-
hensive and sophisticated nuclear training.
Every officer in the Nuclear Navy
completes a full year of graduate level
technical training. Outside the Navy, this
kind of program would cost you thousands.
In the Navy, you're paid while you learn.
Then, as a nuclear-trained officer, you
supervise highly trained personnel in the

in the Navy, as your
knowledge grows, so do
your responsibilities.
Today's Nuclear
Navy is one of the most
challenging and reward-
ing career choices a
man can make. And
that choice can pay off
while you're still in school. Qualified
juniors and seniors earn approximately
$1,000 per month while they finish school.
As a nuclear-trained officer, after 4
years with regular promotions and pay
increases, you can be earning as much as
$40,500. That's on top of a full benefits pack-
age that includes medical and dental care,
and 30 days' vacation earned each year.
As a nuclear-trained officer, you also
earn a place among this nation's most
qualified and respected professionals. So,
