(AP) If you believe women arc as unpredictable HS the weather, don't look for an argument from Elly Hoevc. She'll lake it as a compliment. Besides being a woman, Elly is a graduate student in meteorology at Die Pennsylvania State University. She's from Sydney, Australia. "Statistics show that today's weather forecasts are accurate almost 80 per cent of the she says. "And if women were any more predictable than that, we wouldn't be much fun, would As one of the two girls in a class wilh more than 60 males last year she was the sole distalf member Elly would rather not assess Ihe predictability of men.

Her goal: lo become a research specialist in atmospheric phonemona as air turbulence, cloud physics or some oilier meteorological spin-off. "Too often people think meteorology means only weather she says. "It's really a lot more diversified than that. Forecasting is only a small art of meteorology. I think almospheric science mighl be a more representative description of Ihe course." Elly takes a lot of kidding about possibly becoming a "weather on television, and there is little doubt she could qualify. Hut it's rot for her. "You she says, "the television station in Sydney just changed from Miss Australia lo an ex- weather forecaster, male and about 40. It was a welcome change because I think people are really interested in knowing the ins and outs of what makes the wc-mntr happen. But I think they'll change back again eventually. It's still nice to see a preliy face when Ihey tell yoii it's going lo rain or snow." A grauate of Ihe University of New South Wales in Sydney with degrees in malhematics and physics, Elly says she "son of drilled into meteorology."

FREED Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Nixon, already under Is- raeli pressure for more military aid to offset increasing Arab strength, was faced today wilh a report that the Soviet Union intends lo boosl arms shipments lo Egypl. Tlic administration was said Monday to have received a mes- sage from Moscow within the last two or three days saying Egypl was gelling the new arms aid because of help given Israel by the United Slates. While informed diplomals said they touUI nut confirm dc- lails of Ihe new Soviet aid, they indicated it would be no sur- prise if Egypt gels some of Mos- cow's newest j'cl fighters, the MIG23. There was no Immediate offi- cial U.S. reaction to Ihe reporl, but President Nixon already was on record as concerned about recent French decisions to provide new warplanes to an- Pistol Sold Before Trial LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) A malicious shooting and wound- ing case was scheduled for trial in Fayelte Circuit Court Mon- day, but it was discovered thai a pistol lo be used in evidence had been sold at a police auc- tion. The defendant, Brooks Gard- ner, later pleaded guilty to at- tempting to commit a felony and received a six-month sen- tence. As the jury was being dis- missed, Judge N. Milchcll Meade crilicized the selling of confiscated weapons. "These Ihings gel right back into the hands of. Ihe general part of the public that commits Ihe Meade said. "In this instance, Ihey even got more anxious and sold Ihe gun before Ihe case was called to trial." other Arab stale, Libya. The President told a news conference Friday he would de- cide williin 30 days whether to meet an Israeli plea for more arms help. The Soviet decision will cause more pressure lo make that decision quickly. The Israeli government has received about half of a pre- vious purchase of 50 U.S. Phan- tom jets with the remainder to be delivered over (he rest of Ihe year. Jerusalem also has asked buy anolhcr 50 of the planes under more favorable financial terms. The Soviet message was said by diplomatic sources lo have blamed Hie United Slates lor re- cent Israeli atlacks on Egypl. The sources indicated Moscow decided to increase aid to Cairo because of the Israel military activily. Although there have been re- cent meelings between Soviet Ambassador Analoly Dobrynin and U.S. Secretary ol Slate Wil- liam P. Rogers, there was rea- son lo believe the Soviet arms message was delivered by the Russian embassy directly to the While House. This would emphasize Ihe ser- iousness with which the Soviets view the smoldering Middle East situation. Sources also assumed brief but urgent visits by the Soviet ambassadors lo British Prime Minister Harold Wilson and French President Georges Pom- pidou Monday were lo tell of the Russian decision to send the arms lo Egypl. The French intention to sell Libya al leasl 100 Mirage jets set off cries of alarm by Israel and its supporlers in Iho United Stales, who said the Jewish stale was in danger ol being ov- erwhelmed by the Arabs. Although Nixon expressed concern over Hie French move, he remained under pressure by U.S. Israeli supporters already critical of recent administration peace proposals for the Middle East. The plan, which Itogcrs has said probably would be hard lo swallow by both sides, calls lot- Israel to evacuate almost all the territory it won during Ihe I9G7 six-day war in return for a bind- ing peace commilmenl by Ihe Aralis. Jerusalem said this plan would "gravely endanger" Ihe ircacc and security ol Israel. The Arabs showed no cnlhu- siasm (or Ihe plan, cither. Sen. Abraham Ribicoff, D- Conn., reflecting (he views of olhcr U.S. backers of Israel, said Ihe Nixon plan undcrculs Ihe Jerusalem government. Laic last month, in an appar- ent effort to case such douhls, Nixon told Ihe National Emcr- gcncv Conference on Peace in the "Middle East Ihe United Stales would not hcsilale lo arm such friendly slates as Israel it necessary. "The United Stales is pro- pared lo supply military equip- ment necessary lo support the efforts of friendly governments, like Israel's, lo defend the safe- ly of Ihcir Nixon said. would prefer rcslraint In the shipment ot arms to this area." lie went on. "Hut we are maintaining H careful watch on the relative strength, of the forces there, and we will nol hcsilale lo provide arms lo friendly stales as the need arises." The question in Uie wake of the latest Soviet move is wheth- er thai need has arisen.

MEAHS WASHINGTON (AP) _ In Ihe name of dignity and decorum, the Senale's high command has decided that senators should spend at least llirce straight hours of each day's session talk- ing about business. Tlic decision seems a bit dras- tic in a chamber where business never has slood in the way of oratory, whatever the subject; Students Seeking Open Line to Policymakers By CARL C. CRAFT Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Kmir- teen Princeton University stu- dents, bearing detailed .sugges- tions instead of slogans, are ex- perimenting wilh opening lines of communication between Ihe campus set and Washington's foreign policymakers. So far, so good, according lo their leader Stephen Fuzcsi Jr., who says they got a good hear- ing Monday from Sens. George McGovern, D-S.D., and Charles E. Goodell, R-N.Y. Fuzesi, 21, of Hamden, Conn., says this effort "to re-establish a dialogue between students and our government" is nol an 'it- tcmpl lo undercut the student protest movement. The young, he said, are B0irS to have to accept more responsi- bility during the coming decade and they have a right lo a say on developing policy. In all, 20 Princclon students spcnl 14 weeks researching and developing policy recommenda- tions which they are reviewing in their sessions with some sen- ators, congressmen and Nixon administration leaders. Tlic experiment, Fuzesi said, is part of the students' program of school work concentrated to- ward careers in the puhlic serv- ice field. Fuzcsi said the students arc not here to disrupt the functions of government or lo look around as part of a routine school visit lo tlic city. The students seek support for such proposals as ending nu- clear proliferation immediately, stopping development of an an- tiballistic missile system, and withdrawing all American com- bat forces from Vietnam within a year. and where orations have seldom inhibited conversation among colleagues. But those arc the rules. Of course, those have been the rules for a long lime, and they have been almost unanimously ignored- The Senate's leaders, Democrat Mike Mansfield and Republican Hugh Scott, put it a bil more delicately in a letter lo their colleagues Monday. "While the provisions of these rules have been in our body of rules for a long period of lime, the Senate lias varied in its ?cal lo enforce Mansfield and Scott said in a memo on dignity, decorum and procedure in the Senate. In hopes of seeding the work of Ihe Senate, the two leaders said Ihcy have decided on slricl- er enforcement of Ihe rules.

A single senalor bent on en- forcing Ihe rule can block an off-lfic-subjccl speech. Us just that nobody has made enforce- ment a habit. So Javits gave up vrilh n wry smile, put his speech away, and delivered il later. While Mansfield and Scott signed the slick-lo-business let- ter, Byrd has lurncd out lo be the enforcer.
