Dayan: Geneva peace talks closer
From UPI wire reports
WASHINGTON - Israeli Foreign
Minister Moshe Dayan and the U.S. State
Department agreed Tuesday that a Geneva
conference on a Middle East peace
settlement is possible and desirable this year.
Dayan told a news conference there were
still "wide gaps" between the Israeli and U.S.
positions on such basic questions as the
future boundaries of Israel and a continuing
Israeli military presence in occupied Arab
But he said he believed his nearly six hours
of talks with President Carter and other U.S.
leaders moved a Geneva conference closer if
only by defining the differences.
"The U.S. administration understands
better our position," Dayan said. "We
listened to the administration. Every day we
are getting closer to the conference."
Dayan's visit was the first of a new series of
talks between the United States and M ideast
foreign ministers, with Egyptian Foreign
Minister Ismael Fahmi scheduled to meet
"There are wide gaps between us and the
Department of State on the ultimate lines" of
a M ideast settlement, Dayan said flatly. "We
are not going back to the old lines" the
Israeli borders that existed before the 1967
Six Day War.
Tel Aviv still insists on a military presence
"to protect and defend Israel" in the West
Bank area and other occupied territory, such
as the Golan Heights, Dayan said.
Lance testimony conflict

Lance saying: "Jimmy Carter wants me to be

Patriarca's statement also indicated that
Lance after making a request on behalf of
his bank told Tarleton to come to him if
he ever found anything in government that
was not "right."
Patriarca said he did not hear Lance's
comments personally, but was informed of
them by Tarleton during a dinner

The attorney's testimony was made public
by the Senate Governmental Affairs
Committee, which said it received the
document from the IRS Tuesday morning.
The committee completed nine days of

"We chose an eight-week drop period
because we felt in this amount of time
students should have received a syllabus and
had one major assignment graded. This gives
students an idea of how demanding the
course is. how the instructor grades and what
the time requirements are.
"Eight weeks only makes sense. It fits with
the schedule of midterms most professors
have now and would not cause a change in
the present system."
According to the proposal, a 12-week
drop period was unfair to both students and
professors. The proposal states that students
with low grades drop courses courses at the
end of the semester to avoid bad grades,
leaving professors two options: Leave grades
as they were before the drops, thus causing
grade inflation, or redistribute the grades,
which hurts conscientious students.
The present four-week drop policy was
adopted by the Faculty Council in April
1975. Before that, the official drop period
lasted until the 12th week of classes.
Students may drop courses after the
official drop period ends, but they must file a
written statement with a departmental
appeals board and also secure a written
statement from the professor of the course.

The Derby Day Chase will begin with

people running inside buildings or in lecture
rooms." Bernard says.
