Resolution on detente approved By LA WHENCE LKNUTSON Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The senate is sending President f ord an overwhelming endorsement of detente, a term he himself has stopped using. But the 86 to 7 vote by which the resolution was passed Wednesday was put together only by loading down the measure with a lot of qualifiers, ranging from maintaining "unchallengeable" OS. military Bring her here for a treat on Sunday Highway 59 South-Fergus Falls strength to asking the Soviets to get the Cuban army out of Africa. Some senators called the resolution a declaration of timidity that leaves the impression the United States is ready to yield on questions of its vital national security interests. And Sen. Adlai Stevenson, I>111., said that after reading it three times ht found it open to so many interpretations that he could not bring himself to vote for or against it. He called it "unintelligible." The resolution replaces one that was withdrawn last month when it became clear so many objections had been raised by so many senators that it could not be passed. Ford scutUed detente as a slogan, saying he preferred to label the concept "peace through strength." On the jftJocaf scene FOR MOTHER'S DAY, FOR GRADUATION ...

Alan Cranston, principal sponsor of both versions, said the final version signals Moscow that while detente has become a matter of political debate in the United States, all factions are "united in our desire for peace and our hatred of repression." Cranston said the message of the resolution "may be complex, but it is clear: The U.S. Senate favors the process of detente, by whatever name it is called."

Ahmed Abdel Hady said photographs taken by the ERTS-1 and Landsat satellites are still being analyzed but preliminary indications show enough water in the Sinai Desert "to turn most of it green." Most of the Sinai is still occupied by the Israelis who seized it in 1967. Abdel Hady heads a join( Egyptian-American scientific team in charge of the Remote Sensing Project which has been receiving data from satellites and other space devices since 1972. In addition to the desert potential, Abdel Hady said in an interview, previously unnoticed fertile areas near the Nik Valley could provide food for thousands of Egyptians. Oklahoma State University and Michigan University, in cooperation with the Egyptian government, have a budget of $1.2 million annually for study of the untapped resources, Abdel Hady added. "Six images from ERTS-1 last year showed that the Sinai Peninsula has huge water, oil and mineral resources," Abdel Hady said. "We photographed some 3,500 square miles in Sinai extending trom the north to the south." Shots showed three different areas rich with petroleum and natural gas, he added. The first is the Gulf of Suez which already has proven oil reserves. The second is the Mediterranean offshore area in northern Sinai which has not yet been explored, and the third is a large area in southern Sinai marked by sedimentary rocks carrying natural gas, Abdel Hady said. the highlands in northern Sinai and the coastal strip of Hadi el Arish - totaling more than 2,000 square miles — conceal huge water potential, "enough to turn most of Sinai Desert green," Abdel Hady said. He declined to go details, saying, "1 don't want to make it difficult for Egypt when it Citizens give views on negotiates the next Israeli pullout." Uranium also was detected in northwest and southern Sinai, said Abdel Hady. West central Sinai, at Wadi el Korbra, contains huge quantities of silica that could lead to a glass industry, he said. Satellite images also showed significant food-growing potential in a 2,500-square-mile area adjacent to the Nile basin. Satellite images also were used to study a huge hydroelectric project proposed in the Quattara Depression to the desert west of the Nile Valley. "The studies cover regional mapping of the geology, structure potential, groundwater, surface drainage, mineral and petroleum resources in the Qat- tara region," Abdel Hady said. The Qattara Depression project, if implemented, would give Egypt more than double the electric power currently provided by the Aswan High Dam.

The council invited residents to a meeting to give their opinions on how the urban renewal, block grant and federal revenue sharing funds should be spent. More than 100 showed up Wednesday, proposing golf courses, railroad underpasses, bridges, day care centers and low income housing as pouible uses for the money. "We feel it is very important for citizens to be involved in working with the council in the decision making relative to the expenditure of that money," said Alderman Morris Lanning, chairman of the council's community development committee. Fourteen groups chosen from the residents at the meeting are to submit their ideas to the city for use when decisions to spend the money are made, councilmen said. AMC announces tra special sate.
