Israeli tree project
BY ANDREW KAPLAN
Trces, say three Jewish student
groups on campus, should not have
to suffer because of human
differences in the Middle East.
So, said Union of Students for
Israel member Danya Hoffman,
members of the three groups are
working to replant Israeli trees they
said were razed by arsonists.
According to an article distributed
by the Jewish National Fund, 37,500
acres of forest, brush, and grazing
land have been burned to destruction,
resulting in millions of dollars of
damage. As of today, the article said,
no one has been punished for' any
acts of arson.
The campus groups have asked for
donations of $7 to plant a tree in Is-
rael. "So far we have 125 trees,"
Hoffman said, "but we may get as
much as 150, which would be won-
Although the groups: TAGAR,
the Union of Jewish Students, and
the Progressive Zionist Caucus,
usually differ in their political posi-
tions, this cause has united them.
"Our basic belief is that trees are
not legitimate political targets and
should not be used as such," Hoff-
But campus .support for the tree
planting drive is by no means unan-
imous. LSA senior Lynn Schler, a

walking sticks draped over an arm.
What Dali called his "sublime
craziness" began early - he was su-
spended from art school and briefly
jailed for political activities as a
youth. After becoming famous, he
said, "the only difference between a
crazy person and me is the fact that I
am not crazy."
Although few critics faulted
Dali's technical virtuosity, they did
not hold his work in the highest es-
teem. Most felt his was a flawed
talent, sometimes managing to bal-
ance realistic technique and irrational
content but too often caught up in
his own role as a poseur-painter.
Whatever the critics thought, the
public adored Dali, who also was a
decorator, fashion and jewelry de-
signer, and author.
Kirk Vamnedoc, director of paint-
ing and sculpture at the Museum of
Modem Art in New York, said Dali
"created some of the most unforget-
table, imagery associated with the
"Although I think planting trees in
Israel is important, to cite the arson-
ists as the reason to do so is wrong.
We should remember that the Israeli
army is presently carrying out a pol-
icy of uprooting trees in Arab vil-
lages in the occupied territories."
The groups will sell trees at
Mosher Jordan tomorrow night from
4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The drives, which
were organized to mark last Satur-
day's Tu B'Shevat, the Jewish festi-
val of trees, have already taken place
at the Fishbowl, Alice Lloyd,
Markley, and East Quad.
Forms to buy trees will be avail-
able this week at Hillel, Hoffman
Armed suspects robbed two Ann
Arbor businesses in separate inci-
dents early yesterday, said Ann
Arbor Police Sgt. Sherry Vail..
The first robbery happened at
the S. Main St. Hop In around
1:30 a.m. The suspect entered the
restaurant, forced a worker to give
him money and fled, Vail said.
A cab driver sighted the suspect
and called police, who arrested the
suspect and took him to Wash-
tenaw County Jail, Vail said.
The second armed robbery oc-
curred around 2 a.m. at the Wash-
ington St. Station, Vail said. The
suspect stole money and a ring
from an employee. The suspect
then locked the employee in the
freezer and fled on foot, said Vail.

Argentine civilians seize base
BUENOS AIRES - Soldiers backed by tanks and artillery regained
control yesterday of most of an infantry base that civilian commandos
assaulted and held briefly.
Two small tanks opened the noon counterattack, firing on an officers'
club in which the civilians were thought to be isolated, said Telam, the
government news agency. Sporadic shooting continued for several hours.
The civilian attackers who stormed the base carried pamphlets
supporting officers who have led three previous uprisings, the private
news agency Diaro y Noticas said.
Military sources, speaking anonymously, said the commandos were
leftist guerrillas. Government officials said they may be members of
Montonero, another leftist group that committed violence in the 1970s.
Hospital officials said the incident left one news reporter and four
soldiers killed, and 12 others wounded.
Soviet official criticizes
high USSR abortion rate
MOSCOW - The highest-ranking woman in the Kremlin decried the
chronic shortage of contraceptives in the Soviet Union yesterday, saying
it contributes to an estimated 6.5 million abortions a year.
"It is not normal when the number of abortions is equal to the number
of births," Alexandra Biryukova, a candidate member of the ruling
Communist Party Politburo and a deputy premier, told a news conference.
Abortion is used instead of contraceptives as the main means of birth
control in the Soviet Union, and Western experts estimate that the
average Soviet woman has nine abortions during her child-bearing years.
The Health Ministry newspaper Meditsinskaya Gazeta, commenting
on a critical shortage of condoms, said some couples were so desperate
they had turned to using children's balloons.
Israeli election plan nixed
JERUSALEM - Pro-PLO underground leaders.Monday rejected
Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin's offer of elections in the occupied lands,
and called for escalating the Palestinian uprising to counter tougher army
In an underground leaflet circulated in the occupied territories, the
Unified National Leadership of the uprising rejected Rabin's proposal to
hold elections in return for an end to violence. Rabin, second in the left-
lean ing Labor Party, proposed extended autonomy as an interim solution.
Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, head of the right-wing Likud bloc,
also criticized Rabin's plan.
Shamir's closest ally, Foreign Minister Moshe Arens, said Israel's
peace plan still was being formulated. He rejected talks with the PLO and
Israeli participation in a proposed international peace conference.
Bundy to be executed today
STARKE, Fla. - Confessed serial killer Ted Bundy was "subdued and
emotional" yesterday while he talked with the defense's psychiatrist,
while his attorneys filed appeals to stop his execution this morning.
The law school dropout, who confessed to 20 murders in western states
during the last three days, met with psychiatrist Dorothy Lewis while
attorneys prepared an argument that Bundy was menally incompetent to
At press time, Bundy was scheduled to die in Florida's electric chair at
7 a.m. this morning for the 1978 kidnap-murder of Kimberly Leach of
Lak,; City, and for killing two sorority sisters in Tallahassee in 1978.
Salt Lake county sheriff's Detective Dennis Couch said Sunday that
Bundy mentioned his involvement in eight Utah killings, two more than
authorities had suspected. Bundy also confessed to two murders in Idaho,
where officials had never linked him to any killings.
Pit bull plays fire detector
GOBLES, Mich. - Pit bull terriers have been banned in some
communities because of the belief that they are vicious, dangerous dogs.
Bob Leonardo is convinced otherwise.
About 30 minutes after Leonardo fell asleep in his mobile home early
Jan. 14, he felt a pain in his right hand. "She got me by the hand trying to
get me out of bed," he said, recalling how he woke up to a room of,
Leonardo lost his home in the fire, but he says his pit bull, "Girl,"
saved his life. "When I first got her, she tore up my shoes and socks.
Now I'm very attached to her.".
Leonardo now feels more strongly than ever that pit bulls have an
unjustified bad reputation.
"It's what the individual does with the dog. I don't think there's any
bad dog unless you make them nasty," Leonardo said. "I've had a lot of
good dogs in my time, but never like this one."
