Palestinian youths attacking West Bank Ismelis


TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) -
Palestinian Arab teen-agers, born un
der Israeli occupation, are carrying
out attacks on Israelis in a new effort
to drive Israel from the West Bank
and Gaza Strip.
The striking thing about the series'
of attacks is that they are not stone-
throwing demonstrations by bands of
youths, but attacks on individual Jews
by young mefi using guns, knives or:
AND FOR the first time, some ex-
perts say, the youths are acting in-
dependently of the Palestine.
Iiberation Organization.
Those experts contend the youths
have been emboldened by Israel's
withdrawal from south Lebanon un-

der attack by Shiite Moslems, and its
release of 1,150 Arabs, including some
convicted guerrillas, in exchange for
three captured Israeli soldiers.
At least seven Israelis have been
killed since May in shootings and stab
bings, while about a dozen people
have been injured by bombs.
ISRAELI leaders have accused the
PLO operating in Jordan of en-
couraging the attacks and instructing
youths. But analysts say the PLO is
not supplying weapons or men to
carry out the assaults.
"This is the first time that the
initiative is being taken in so many
cases by local youths acting on their
own," said Tamar Prat, a specialist
on the PLO at Tel Aviv University's

Jaffe Center for Strategic Studies.
"In the past, the PLO sent people in-
to the territories to recruit and train
new guerrillas," Prat told The
Associated Press. "Now the people
being caught have no links to terrorist
PLO chairman Yasser Arafat "is
not sending arms or terrorists into the
West Bank because he would be in
trouble with Jordan's King Hussein,"
said Prat.
Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin,
speaking on Israel radio, said half the
recent terror attacks were not plan-
ned or organized by terrorist groups
but instead were carried out by in-
dividuals or local groups "acting on a
hatred toward Israel and Jews."

But, he added, the PLO was influen-
cing the youths.
"In Amman, they (PLO officials)
can meet per day 10 times more
Palestinians who reside in the West
Bank of Gaza Strip than they could in
one month in Beirut or Damascus,'
Rabin said.
ISRAEL has warned Hussein to
keep PLO officials in check.
"But the most important factor in
the increase in attacks is a new spirit
in the West Bank," Prat said.
"There's a new generation, a
generation born in the period of the
1967 Six-Day War," when Israel cap-
tured the West Bank and Gaza.

Troops crush Thai coup
BANGKOK, Thailand - Loyalist troops crushed a coup attempt
yesterday by 400 to 500 soldiers led by former top military men. Prime
Minister Prem Tinsulandona, who had been out of the country, returned
hours after the tank-led rebel insurrection and pleaded for unity.
Four people were reported killed and 59 wounded in the nine hours of
fighting. The acting army chief said three alleged coup leaders had been
Among the dead were NBC News Bangkok bureau chief Neil Davis and
his soundman, Bill Latch. The two men were shot in front of the army
compound as rebel-operated M-41 and M-48 tanks opened fire on the army
radio station.
At 6 a.m. rebel soldiers seized the official Radio Thailand and gover-
nment television Channel Nine. The rebels, calling themselves the
"Revolutionary Party," announced they had seized power and had
dissolved the Parliament and Cabinet.
The rebels, with machine guns and 22 tanks, stormed the army radio
station at 9:55 a.m., but gave up five hours later when the government
threatened to move in and crush them.
AIDS spurs school boycotts
NEW YORK - More than a quarter of the children in two Queens
districts did not show up for the first day of school yesterday as parents
protested the city's decision to let a second-grader with AIDS attend the
public school.
The identity of the child and the child's school was not disclosed. Some
demonstrating parents said their children would stay home until they
found out just which school the child with the incurable disease was at-
AIDS, or acquired immune deficiency syndrome, is an often fatal af-
fliction in which the body's immune system becomes unable to resist
disease. It is most likely to strike homosexuals, abusers of injectable
drugs and hemophiliacs and can apparently be spread by sexual contact,
contaminated needles and blood transfusions, but not by casual contact.
Some children have been born with the disease because their mothers
carried the virus.
Mayor Edward I. Koch, after visiting a Queens school, said none of the
children he saw were talking about AIDS, and he said parents were only
scaring them by making a to-do over the issue.
The unknown second grader was let into the schools described as
having completed nursery school, kindergarten and first grade since
being diagnosed with a condition associated with AIDS.:

University's primary recruiting
Those predictions concern Univer-.
, sity officials, even though the actual
number of applicants to the Univer-
sity has risen in recent years. Ad-
ministrators say the pool appears
larger only because high school

graduates today apply on average to
more colleges than they did a decade
ROBERT Holmes, assistant vice
president for academic affairs, noted
that the study "had definitely been in
the back of everybody's minds."
In his charge to the panel, Frye
wrote: "With a diminishing pool of

ing students interested in working for a fundraising phonathon

potential students, increasingly inten-
se recruiting competition from other
institutions, uncertainty regarding
the level of support to be expected
from state and federal sources, and
worrisome trends in the costs to
students and their families ..., it is
clear that a careful examination of
how best the University can organize
and carry out its admissions and
recruiting efforts will be essential."
Jack Walker, a political science
professor who worked on the ISR
study, said "secondary schools have
had to deal with this problem already
and it has resulted in many schools
closing. Now we have to deal with the
WALKER and Political Science
Prof. John Chamberlain are the only
two appointments made to the com-
mittee so far. Chamberlain noted that
the panel will consider several
For instance, the panel will discuss
whether the University should in-
crease the percentage of out-of-state
students it admits every year if ap-
plications from in-state students fall,
short of goals, reduce student enroll-
ment, or lower admissions standards.

Chamberlain pointed out, however,
that each of those options has pitfalls.
Downsizing student enrollment
means revenue from tuition will drop,
requiring cutbacks in University ex-
penses. Raising the out-of-state
student population is politically un-
wise for a university supported by
state tax payers, he added, while
University officials are opposed to
lowering admissions standards.
Improving the University's
recruiting strategies is another issue
the panel will study, Chamberlain
said, though he added that efforts to
beef up minority recruitment and
financial aid incentives are already
underway in other University offices.
"(Associate Vice President for
Academic Affairs) Niara Sudarkasa's
office is already taking on a major in-
tiative to increase minority
enrollment," Chamberlain said.
"While we'll deal some with the
question, I don't picture us serving as
a watchdog over their efforts."

student use.
Presently, the University has about
225 terminals scattered around cam-
pus. By 1988, Van Houweling said that
number should increase to around
2,000, or one terminal for every 15
He also said that sales of computers
'and computer software will be expan-
ded. The University has sold Macin-
tosh and Zenith computers to studen-
ts, faculty, and staff for over a year
now at substantially discounted
THE LINE OF discount computers
being sold now includes IBM personal
computers, which went on sale almost
two weeks ago. Prices for the IBM
models range from $1,093 to $4,471.
Also at the forum was Henry John-
son, the University's vice president
for student services. Johnson said
that the University aims to have 60
workstations in seven residence halls
by the end of this term, and 150 ter-
minals in those dorms by the end of
the year.
Such a rapid proliferation of ter-
minals is expensive, Johnson pointed
out. The residence hall program will
cost around $200,000 to implement,
with another $50-60,000 in operating
costs. .
STUDENTS at the forum raised
concerns about the costs of these new
programs, in particular about the fees
that probably will be assessed to
every student starting next term.
Although only engineering and
business student now pay fees to
finance computer systems, the regen-
ts are expected to approve plans to
assess all other students for the im-
provements at this month's meeting.

Sun Belt states to gain bulk


of nation's population growth
WASHINGTON - Five Sun Belt states will account for more than half
of the nation's population growth through the year 2000, but Midwestern
states that had been looking at declines may not lose people after all, a
orivate research group said yesterday.
The National Planning Association projected that California will con-
tinue to be the nation's biggest populationgainer, adding 6,668,000 people
between the 1980 Census and 2000.
In fact, nearly 80 percent of the nation's population gain in the coming
years is expected to be in the South and West as Americans migrate in
search of jobs.
But while the planning association projected relatively little growth for
other parts of the nation, it foresaw population declines in only three
places - New York, the District .of Columbia, and West Virginia.
That is good news for several Northeastern and Midwestern states that
have lost population in recent years and had been expected by some
population experts to continue to decline.
In the Northeast, for example, the planning association projected that
Massachusetts would be the biggest gainer, adding 560,000 people.
Michigan was expected to lead the Midwest, adding 549,000.
In its most recent projections, issued two years ago, the Census Bureau
forecast that Massachusetts would lose 246,600 people between 1980 and
2000, and Michigan would drop 50,700.
Young may romp in primary
DETROIT - Today's primary election is expected to be a romp for
Mayor Coleman Young, with election-eve polls predicting he could pick
up as much as 65 percent of the vote in a 12-way race.
Although Young, 67, is a sure bet for a record fourth, four-year term, he
campaigned like an underdog in the nonpartisan primary, spending
$500,000 in the first eight months of 1985 alone.
Since he was elected Detroit's first black mayor in 1973, Young has had
no problem getting re-selected and remains enormously popular with the
city's growing black majority.
Young's most visible challenger is Tom Barrow, the 36-year-old
president of Michigan's largest minority-owned accounting firm and
nephew of boxing legend Joe Louis.
Night Stalker again delays
entering pleas to charges
LOS ANGELES - Accused Night Stalker Richard Ramirez, appearing
more relaxed than at his last court appearance, yesterday again delayed
entering pleas to charges of murder, rape, and robbery.
Amid extremely tight security that included an electronic scanning of
all court watchers, the prime suspect in the Stalker's string of 20 slayings
entered the packed courtroom bound in heavy chains.
Outside court, both the prosecutor, Deputy District Attorney Phil
Halpin, and Ramirez's attorney, Deputy Public Defender Allen Adashek,
said they anticipate more charges will be filed, although neither would
comment specifically.
