U.N. tells Israel to
leave occupied lands
(Continued from Page 1)i
Many delegates said they abstained for
the same reason.
But to the hardline Arabs, the
resolution was a "compromise," an ac-
The resolution was one of two critical
of Israeli policies in the occupied West
Bank of the Jordan River and the Gaza
Strip - where the proposed Palestinian
state would be established under the
General Assembly resolution.
THE SECOND resolution, which also
won overwhelming approval by the
General Assembly, asked the body's
Palestine Rights Committee to study
why Israel has not complied with
previous U.N. resolutions. As in the
past, the General Assembly lacks
means of forcing Israel to comply with
The vote on the second resolution was
112-5 with 26 abstentions, the United
States again voting in the negative.
Israel, with U.S. backing, has stead-
fastly resisted pressures to allow the
Palestinians more than a limited form
of self-rule in the territories it occupied
during the 1967 Middle East war.
While the Arab supporters of the
resolution failed in their effort to rally
West European support behind the
Palestinian- statehood resolution, the
abstentions by the nine Common
Market states were seen here as
representing a further softening of the.
once-solid Western support of Israel.

That's the way to dQ it
Richard Nixon, Henry Kissinger, and Mickey Mouse were among the
registrants for the draft at the post office in Ithaca, New York last week.
Postal workers say at least 11 blatantly phony cards were turned in, in ap-
parent protest to the national registration. But Nixon, Kissinger, and the
mouse weren't the only "signees." They were joined by Donald Duck, Sen.
Edward Kennedy, and the man who got the ball rolling in the first
place-Jimmy Carter. Too bad they signed him up. He deserves the $10,000
fine and five years in prison. Q
Don't gimme that manure
Manure spreaders now have a sporting event dedicated solely to their
... uh, art. Almost everyone with a pitchfork can qualify for the Harry S.
Truman Grand Pitch-Off in Augusta, Maine. "Politicians are not allowed,"
Pitch-Off organizer and ace manure spreader Mort Mather said Monday.
"We didn't want anyone in there with an unfair advantage. We figure they
spread too much of it on their own time." But for that one farmer skilled
above all others in the spreading and pitching of manure, an $850 manure
spreader will be the prize Sept. 21. There are five events, testing distance,
accuracy, and overall quality of the finished spread. As for the name of the
event, Mather says, "There's a story that went around Washington in those
days. It seems the president and his wife went to a society deal and one of the
grande dames walked up to Bess Truman and said 'I wish you'd get Harry to
stop saying manure so much."' The unflappable first lady's reported reply:
"You don't know how long it took me to make him start saying it." Q
