0anniversary of rebirth
From AP and UPI
Christians around the world heralded
Easter Sunday and the 1,950th anniver-
sary of Christ's rebirth, celebrating
with prayer and ritual from the chur-
ches of Jerusalem to the soaring splen-
dor of the Vatican.
Amid the joyful strains of the Gloria
in the splendor of St. Peter's Basilica in
Vatican City, Pope John Paul II
heralded the resurrection of Jesus
Christ on Easter Sunday, the holiest
day of the Christian calendar.
"CHRIST HAS arisen from the dead
through the glory of the Father so we
also may walk in newness of life," the
pope said, quoting from the Bible in a.
joyous Easter Vigil Mass.
At midnight, the 10-ton "Cam-
panone," the master bell of St. Peter's,
boomed across the cold darkness and
the bells in Rome's 500 churches, silent
since Thursday, chimed in.
An estimated 20,000 religious
dignitaries and pilgrims attended the
rites in which the 62-year-old pope led a
procession into the darkened basilica to
light the five-foot-tall Paschal candle,
ending the 40-day mourning period of
AS THE pope halted three times to
signify the three days between Christ's
death and resurrection, priests and
pilgrims lit their tapers and candles to
signify "Lumen Christi," or the light
Christ's resurrection brought to the
The Vatican's service is held earlier
than most other churches to permit the
pope enough time to rest before an out-
door Mass today in St. Peter's Square.
After the service, the pontiff delivers
the traditional "Urbi et Orbi" - To the
City and the World - blessing. Tens of
thousands of people milled about in St.
Peter's Square yesterday evening after
a rainstorm. Security officers equipped
with metal detectors checked those en-
tering the majestic basilica, the largest
The ceremonies carried extra
significance this Easter because the
special Holy Year proclaimed by the
pope marks the 1,950th anniversary of
Christ's death and resurrection.
The pope has christened the Holy
Year, dedicated to the redemption of
mankind through Christ's sacrifice, the
"Jubilee of Redemption."

professor, Rodney Grambeau, said Don
Canham, the athletic director, would
have as much say in the matter as any
of the University vice presidents.
Although certain parts of the athletic
department are under the vice
presidents for student services and
state relations, Canham usually is
responsible only to President Harold
"The athletic director is certainly on
a comparable plane with the vice
presidents at.the University," Gram-
beau said. "He certainly would have
equal input with them."
IN AN interview last week, Shapiro
said he recognizes the importance of
athletics to the University but he said
that department is not important
enough to rescue physical education.
Frye said Canham would not have
equal say with the executive officers,
but that he would "have a chance to ex-
press his opinion. There is no way to
change the department (of physical
education) without having a con-
siderable effect on athletics," Frye
said. Any department related to a unit,
which could be cut would be consulted,
executive officers are not un-
derestimating the value of athletics on
campus and priority decisions that
could lie ahead of them.
"As much as you would like to, I don't
think you can divorce the (physical
education cuts) from intercollegiate
athletics," said vice president for state
relations Richard Kennedy, who also
sits on the Board in Control of Inter-
"(The University) has done athletics
well, just as we have done other things
well," he said. "It would be hard for me
to say that (athletics) is not an impor-
tant part of the University. You have to
keep in mind all the parts of the Univer-
sity that are important to it."

In West Germany, organizers said
about 75,000 protesters joined the
demonstrations, blocking seven U.S.
military bases and staging "die-ins"
despite a chilly rain that soaked them.
ON FRIDAY, however, police used
tear gas and snarling German shepherd
dogs in a brief clash with protesters at a
U.S. military base in the Bavarian town
of Neu Ulm. About 250 youthful
protesters returned yesterday, but riot
police with wooden truncheons blocked
them from gettng close to the base en-
In Boon, 200 protesters converged on
the barbed-wire fence ringing the gray
West German Defense Ministry, but
made no attempt to scale it. Earlier at
Muenster Square downtown, hundreds
shouted slogans and carried placards
that said in German, "Missiles Kill, We
Want to Live," and "Rockets Are For
War, Not For Us."
In West Germany, a spokesman for
the Frankfurt office co-ordinating the

protesters were arrested yesterday at
