Syria prepares
to enter Sidon,
reports say


From AP and UPI
BEIRUT, Lebanon - The battle
between Chrisian and Moslem militias
for-the ancient port city of Sidon raged
on,, and reports yesterday said Syria
was preparing to step in before
Lebanon's warring factions are swept
into full-scale civil war.
.Officials said a policeman was killed
and 15 civilians were wounded in ex-
changes of rocket-propelled grenades
and mortar and machine-gun fire bet-
ween Christian militias on one side and
Moslem militiamen and Palestinians on
the other.
THAT BROUGHT THE casualty, toll
to 48 killed and 194 wounded during
eight days of fighting in south
Lebanon's largest city, 25 miles south of
There was less intense fighting in
other areas yesterday.
Solidiers of the Lebanese army ex-
changed tank and mortar fire with
Druse militiamen in the hills east of
Beirut for two hours, and gunmen
fought for half an hour along the Green
Line frontier between Beirut's
Christian and Moslem sectors.
NO' CASUALTIES, were reported in
either case.
The fighting in Sidon was heavy
overnight, tapered off to sporadic
sniper fire in the morning and then
flared again Friday afternoon, accor-
ding to police and reporters on the
They said Christian militiamen on the

hills overlooking the port poured mor-
tar and artillery fire into Sidon's two
Palestinian refugee camps, Ein el-
Hilweh and Mieh Mieh. Moslem and
Palestinian fighters in the camps
responded with barrages from
multiple-rocket launchers.
SHELLING SET a house ablaze in the
Mieh Mieh camp and started a fire in
the Marouf Saad clinic nearby that was
extinguished quickly by Sidon's fire
brigade, the reports said.
The independent Beirut newspaper
An-Nahar reported that President
Amin Gemayel received what it called
a "semi-ultimatum" from Syria to
bring a quick end to the strife in Sidon
before it sets off widespread fighting in
Lebanon's 10-year-old factional war.
Otherwise, An-Nahar said, "a Syrian
intervention has become likely, even
without a request by the Lebanese
In southern Lebanon, officials said
Shiite Moslem guerrillas fired rocket-
propelled grenades and a Soviet-made
Katyusha rocket on three positions held
by the Israeli army and its allied
Lebanese militia, the South Lebanon
Army. No casualties were reported.
In Tel Aviv, Israel radio said Israeli
officials apparently would support a
Lebanese request to renew the six-
month mandate of the U.S.
peacekeeping force in southern
Lebanon as long as U.N. troops do not
move to the Lebanon-Israeli border.

Nice guys finished last and first in the
two-month long Millions Against
Multiple Sclerosis v fundraising cam-
paign which came to an end yesterday
at 11 college campuses.
The University of Michigan placed
third, Marquette second, and Notre
Dame first in the competition designed
to raise funds for Multiple Sclerosis
research, Steve Wosahla of the
National Multiple Sclerosis Society an-
nounced yesterday.
OF THE NEARLY $100,000 donated
to the MS society by program par-
ticipants, over $20,000 came from Notre
Dame and more than $8,000 came from
the Uniersity, said Wosahla. Notre
Dame won the Tommy Shaw concert
donated by MTV for making the highest
per capita contribution, he said.
Wosahla said he was "more than
pleased" with the University's con-
tribution to the society, especially
becuase he said the University has
"such a diverse student population.",
Rob Markus, a member of the
University's "M Against MS" steering

committee, said that more people were
involved in the project than had been
"I think we lost," he said, "because
we have such a diverse campus. There
is so much going on. There is more goin
on here than in (South Bend) Indiana."
REACTING to Markus's reasoning,
Notre Dame fundraiser Vince Willis
laughed. "I honestly believe Notre
Dame won," he said, "because we have
the spirit to get involved in any worth-
while cause; this campaign is impor-
tant... it's about increasing the
awareness about MS."
The Millions Against Multiple
Sclerosis inter-campus campaign was
the brainchild of Clifford Goldsmith,
retire. president of the Philip Morris
tobacco company and chairman of the
National Board of Directors of the MS
Society. Goldsmith, said Wosahla,
believed collegedstudentsshould be
aware of the degenerate nervous
system disorder which most commonly
occurs in people of their age group.

With wire reports
City streets are emptying this weekend as
students leave town to spend Easter Sunday or
Passover with their family and friends at
home. For those students with too much
homework or too little money to make the trip
home, local churches and synagogues offer a
variety of services to mark the religious
The B'nai Brith Hillel Foundation located on
Hill Street began a series of ceremonies which
drew 150 students last night and will conclude
tonight. Seder dinners mark the exodus of
Moses 'and the Israelites from Egypt 3,400

years ago. Unleavened bread is served to
remind Jews of the haste with which their an-
cestors were forced to leave the country.
DURING THE holy days, several foods, in-
cluding bread, yeast, corn or anything con-
taining these ingredients, cannot be eaten.
Along with the unleavened bread, or matzoh,
foods such as lamb bone, parsley, and a mix-
ture of apples, cinnamon, and wine are con-
sumed for their religious significance.
Tonight Christians will hold Easter vigil in
anticipation of Easter Sunday when they will
celebrate Christ's resurrection.
The Christian holiday actually begins 40 days
before Sunday, with Lent, a time when

Christians prepare themselves for Easter and
vow to do something that will make them better
Christians. Aside from colored eggs and
chocolate rabbits, Easter is commonly
celebrated with a Sunday morning church ser-
RICK ROGERS, a student pastor at the
protestant University Reform Church, says
Easter is a more crucial holiday for Christians
than Christmas. He says he expects about 30
students to show up at the church's Sunday
service, no more than the average.
According to Rabbi Aharon Goldstein of
Chabad House, more students are turning
toward Judaism. He says this is because they

are looking for direction in their lives. "They
are not getting fulfillment from leading a
secular life," Goldstein says.
But some Jewish students at the University
will not celebrate the holiday.
"I guess I'm doing nothing," says one LSA
freshman, who asked to remain anonymous.
She says she is not going to attend services
because she doesn't have any friends who plan
to attend. "I don't want to pay $14 to be by
ANOTHER LSA freshman, who also declined
to give her name, said she was shocked at the

The Boring Party
AMPAIGNING for the Michigan Student Assem-
bly kicked into high gear this week, but across the
j nation at the University of California-Berkeley one

next week's Associated Students Senate elections, has triedE
to buy votes for a penny, offering life after death to his sup-I
porters. The one salvo that ties the party together is their
promise to be dull, but perhaps apathetic is more ap-
propriate. None of the party's candidates received enough
votes to win any seats in two previous elections but they
seem to be doing better in this election. "I think if we did ac-
tually get elected, we'd probably be pretty decent
senators," Day said. "I don't want to be the one to find out,

what it was," Deputy Fire Marshal Gail McCloud said.
"The only hazard was to the poor guy who had to
clean it up," fire division chief Darrel Hartshorn said.
Someone had dumped about 10 gallons pf tamales during
the night, McCloud said, adding that there was no way to
trace their origin. "We all know what the inside of a tamale
is made of, and I would imagine if it went bad it would be
real bad," McCloud said. "It's got corn, meat, sauces."

to the speaker's office last month. Johnson called for the
recess on Thursday after the House passed a record $2.1
billion education budget. The ceremony, in a packed cham-
ber, was conducted by Supreme Court Justice Reneau
Almon and ended with Rep. Frank White singing "I Love
Your Truly." The couple retreated to the House Ways and
Means Committee room where they received guests and
drank champagne.
