"Occupation corrupts" was the
essage of Richard Arens, the out-
spoken brother of Israeli Defense
Minister Moshe Arens, in an Ann Arbor
address yesterday.
Arens, A University graduate and
currently law professor at the Univer-
sity of Bridgeport (Connecticut), ac-
cused Israeli soldiers of beatings,
ra'ings, and gang abuse against
Palestinians in Israeli-occupied
territories. Arens compared Israeli
treatment of the Palestinians
West Bank to the racist policies of South
Africa.
SPEAKING TO A crowd of about 75
people with few undergraduates at the
Wesley Foundation, Arens also blamed
Israel for the massacre of Palestinians
in Lebanese camps last year.
"Phalange militia were not allowed but
invited into the camps" by the Israelis,
Arens said.
Arens also warned against Israeli
nuclear capability in the Middle East.

tians.
He condemned the Israeli aerial attack
on an Iraqi nuclear power in January
1981 and said that Israeli collaboration
with South Africa in the field of nuclear
military power was decreasing the
chances for peace in the region.
Arens said that the Israelis, who
regard themselves as a tiny David
surrounded by many Goliaths, rank
fourth on the world's most atomically
armed list, and therefore it is the
Israelis-not the Arab countries-who
are the Goliaths of the region. He said
the country's interest in maintaining
nuclear superiority was the reason for
Israel's refusal to sign the nuclear non-
proliferation treaty.
ARENS WENT ON to urge the
audience to write to their represen-
tatives in congress to counter the strong
Israeli lobby in Washington. He
questioned why the United States was
willing to give Israel $300 million per
year while regions within the United
States, such as Michigan, are in
economic turmoil. The United Staes

their conviction for the Oct. 2, 1981
holdup at a Nanuet shopping mall in
which a Brink's guard was slain and
two police officers died in the ensuing

Sept. 14 of three counts of murder and
four of robbery. Two co-defendants
Kathy Boudin and Samuel Brown, are

scheduled for trial on the same charges
Wednesday.
Kenneth Gribetz, the Rockland Coun-
ty district attorney who prosecuted the
case, recommended the maximum sen-
tence.
"The defendants have expressed not
the slightest sign of contrition, sorrow,
or remorse for their activities, but
rather .a firm desire and commitment
to continue their struggle against the
United States and their values, to con-
tinue to rob, maim and kill," he said.
Gribetz warned Ritter that it would
be a serious mistake "not to take these
defendants at their word when they
state that they are revolutionaries."

MARSHAL, Minn. (AP) - A judge
set bail at $250,000 yesterday for a teen-
ager accused of second-degree murder
for the slayings of two bank officers at a
farm once owned by his father.
Steven Jenkins, 18, replied to Lyon
County District Judge George Mar-
shall's questions in a voice too low to be
heard by most in the courtroom. He did
not enter a plea.
LINCOLN County attorney Michael
Cable had sought bail of $50,000. Mar-
shall appointed Robert Maunu of
Pipestone as Jenkins' attorney and set
the youth's next court appearance for
Oct. 2.
Jenkins and his father, James
Jenkins, 46, were charged with the
deaths of Rudolph Blythe, 42, and
Deems Thulin, 37, president and vice
president, respectively, of the Buffalo
Ridge State Bank of Ruthton. The two
were slain last week on a farm where

the Jenkins family had lived before the
bank foreclosed on the mortgage and
claimed the property.
Father and son fled law enforcement
authorities until the younger Jenkins
surrendered Sunday night in Texas af-
ter his father apparently committed
suicide.
Jenkins has been described as a
friendly but shy youth with a fixation
for guns and other military trappings.
His grandfather, Clayton Jenkins, said
the teen had hoped to join the Marines
but failed the physical due to a ruptured
spleen.
The elder Jenkins was described as a
hard-working man who stayed to him-
self and longed to get back into far-
ming., Since the foreclosure four years
ago, he had held construction jobs and a
janitorial position at a school in
Brownwood, Texas.

up the Love Canal story because of the
irony in its name, not because it was the
nation's most dangerous site.
"The student has to realize the post-
industrial society has the problem of
toxics to deal with just as the '30s, '40s,
and '50s had the problems of women's
rights and desegregation. . . The dif-
ference between toxics and those issues

is that you have to have more technical
background to play the game."
Kaufman said he was disappointed
that only 30 people turned out for his
speech. Usually when he speaks at a
college he said he gets crowds of around
500 to 600 people.
"Students should get involved with
the issues and educate themselves to
some degree."
