Gemayel to




with Israel

From AP and UPI
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Druse and
Moslem militias stepped up military
and political pressure yesterday to oust
President Amin Gemayel, and
Gemayel sought Saudi intervention to
save his disintegrating army and
U.S.' Marines and Italian troops
packed their equipment and prepared
to pull out of Beirut.
Reagan received a final plan for with-
drawing most of the U.S. Marines from
Lebanon within 30 days Thursday, and
a senior White House official said the
first troop movements could come
within 48 hours.
The official, who briefed reporters on
the condition that he remain
anonymous, said the redeployment
should be completed within 30 days
from today.
However, 500 people, including
Marines and Army trainers, will
remain in Beirut to guard the U.S. Em-
bassy and perform other duties, the of-
BUT EVEN after the Marines,
perhaps 1,200, are relocated on the
ships, they will remain as members of
the multinational force, the official
The timetable for withdrawal of the
Marines was submitted to the White
House yesterday by Defense Secretary

Caspar Weinberger, who included a
provision for removing the Marines
more quickly in the event of an
The White House official said Reagan
would formally approve the plan today.
IN LEBANON, President Amin
Gemayel has agreed to renounce his
government's May 1983 troop-
withdrawal agreement with Israel,
Beirut radio reported yesterday night.
The state radio said that Gemayel
had agreed to an eight-point Saudi plan
that includes scrapping the Israel-
Lebanon pact, and that Lebanese
Foreign Minister Elie Salem had in-
formed Saudi officials of the decision.
Beirut radio said Gemayel provided
details of the Saudi initiative to leaders
of the various Lebanese factions. It said
he also sent a written message about
his decision to former President
Suleiman Franjieh, a member of the
opposition National Salvation Front,
which also includes Druse leader Walid
Jumblatt and former Prime Minister
Rashid Karami.
AMERICAN officials, who spoke on
condition they not be identified, said
they were skeptical the Saudi-mediated
plan would work. Druse opposition
leader Walid Jumblatt said in an interview
view he would veto it. He called it "too
little, too late."
"There will never be a compromise

Fifth-Ward election may
end GOP council rule

Only one primary will be held in this
year's City Council election, but if
either of the two Democrats vying for a
Fifth-Ward seat win the final race,
Republicans may lose their 10-year
majority on Council.
In next Monday's primary, Fifth-
Ward voters will. decide whether can-
didates Barbara Rachelson or Doris
Preston will face Republican Sally
Pennington in the April 2 city election.
REPUBLICANS have traditionally
held both seats in the Fifth-Ward, but
last year, Democrat Kathy Edgren

defeated the Republican incumbent
Louis Velker.
Party representation in other wards
is likely to remain the same, making
the Fifth-Ward race crucial in deter-
mining, whether Democrats can gain
control of City Council. In other words,
candidates are running unopposed or
only one Republican and Democrat are
competing for a Council seat.
Councilman Larry Hunter (D-First-
Ward), who is running unopposed in the
April election, said both Preston and
Rachelson have a strong chance of
defeating Pennington.
THE TWO candidates are aligned on
many issues. They both support a city-
funded shelter for Ann Arbor's
homeless, an increase in human ser-
vices funding, and less stringent enfor-
cement of city parking regulations.
Although the candidates agree onthe
city's problem areas, Rachelson says

they differ in their approaches.
"We are less similar than people
think," Rachelson said, adding that she
backs more stringent planning policies
than Preston.
THE TWO Democrats also differ in
the amount of experience they've had
working on city governments.
Preston, 40, a University alumna and
currently a librarian at the Graduate
Library, has served on the Ann Arbor
Planning Commission for three years,
the Washtenaw County Metropolitan
Planning Commission, and the Mayor's
Energy Advisory Commission.
Preston, who also headed Kathy
Edgren's campaign last year for the
Fifth-Ward seat, criticizes Rachelson's
lack of familiarity with Ann Arbor

town that long," Preston said.

Insufficient student participation in
drafting the code is the main problem
with proposed guidelines, said
Jonathan Ellis, co-director of Canter-
bury Loft and one of four panelists.
"I think the students ought to appoint
their own judges, and they ought to
make their own rules," Ellis said.
BUT Sharphorn said he encourages
students to criticize the code and make
suggestions. The proposed code is "not
immutable," Sharphorn said. Parts of
the code "might be changed."
Under the code, students could be
punished for acts such as arson, sexual,
harassment, assault, theft, vandalism
and possibly some, types of civil
disobedience - all things the Univer-

Who says Michigan can't win the
close ones?
Not Eric Turner.
THE JUNIOR guard's 10-foot jumper
with two seconds remaining gave the
Wolverines a 62-60 victory over seven-
th-ranked Illinois last night at Crisler
Arena. Turner finished with a season-
high 22 points, hitting nine of 12 shots
from the field.
Trailing 58-52 with under four
minutes remaining, Michigan made a
10-2 run which featured just about
every play in the book. Tim McCor-
mick, who finished with 12 points and
four rebounds, started it off by going in
for a, dunk which was knocked away by
Illini center George Montgomery.
Replays showed that the ball was hit
while it was going through the net but
the officials ruled no goaltending. Mc-
Cormick hit one free throw.
"It went through andl they knocked it
away with a hand," said Michigan
coach Bill Frieder. "I was willing to bet.
everyone they knocked it out but no one
would take it."
GAMBLING matters aside, a-Turner
free throw pulled the Wolverines within
four, 58-54, and on the next Illinois
possession Dan Pelekoudas took a
charge and calmly sank two foul shots.
The senior was booed consistenly
throughout the contest but Frieder had
nothing but praise for him after the

Despite the absences of two guests of
