South Quad escapes another fire.

Another fire was narrowly averted in South Quad
yesterday morning when a cigarette tossed into a
trash can burnt itself out before University security
arrived on the scene.
The near-fire in Kelsey House was located in one of
the same trash cans that was set ablaze on Feb. 4,
when South Quad residents evacuated their dorm for
over an hour.
ACCORDING TO five officials, the cigarette-
which was discovered by a student retur-
ning home from the Union's Computer Center - did
not produce enough smoke to mandate pulling a fire
"Had there been a fire, there would have been an
alarm pulled, because that's the regulation," said
South Quad Building Director Mary Antieau.

A resident in Kelsey House said he saw fire officials
in the hallway when he left the dorm early in the
morning, and Fire Inspector Robert Harris confir-
med that arson investigators from both the fire and
police departments arrived on the scene after being
called by University security.
FIRE INSPECTOR Robert Harris confirmed the
department will look into the incident, saying "it's
possible it could be related to the other fires."
He labeled the latest incident "an attempt at
deliberately lighting another fire."
"A person would have to be pretty naive to throw a
lit cigarette into a trash can," he added.
Joel Allan, the manager of housing security, called
the near-miss a "suspicious incident which we are
looking into."

Yesterday morning's near-fire was the latest in a
series of fires plaguing central campus in the past
two weeks. In addition to the previous South Quad
fires, a trash can fire was extinguished in West Quad
on Feb. 9, and another trash can fire was put out
Wednesday morning in a men's bathroom in the
Investigators have several suspects in the rash of
fires, including a former West Quad resident who was
evicted last year for assaulting another resident, a
varsity athlete who was the prime suspect in a
similar series of fires in South Quad last year, and
another former South Quad resident who no longer
lives in the Quad.

s What jobs reflect those skills and
A University of Texas study indicated
that the most marketable skill among
liberal arts students is the ability to
communicate effectively, both in
writing and speaking.
Other important skills include data
processing, computer literacy, budget
management, sales and managing ex-
perience, and a working knowledge of
human relations.
Areas of work where liberal arts
students typically find jobs include
communication fields, banking,
fashion, marketing, real estate, social
services, travel, and government -
though jobs in this sector have been
But placement officials stressed that
liberal arts students won't find the job
of their dreams posted on the list of
recruiters at their universities'
placement offices or in the want ads
section of the newspaper.
"VERY FEW liberal arts graduates

etors say
are in the main stream of on-campus
recruiting," Kayser said. "They have
to go out after they graduate and find
the jobs themselves."
May echoed her comments.
"Advertised jobs are only 20 percent
of those available," she said. "A
passive job hunter only applies to those
jobs he or she sees in the paper... You
must go out and find the jobs."
BUT FINDING them may require a
bit of creativity.
As a case in point, the University's
career planning and placement office
has asked job hunters to list as many
job titles as they could think of in a
given length of time. According to May
the average student generated only
about 30 titles.
"Most people base their career
choices on the 30 jobs they've heard of.
There are more than 35,000 job titles out
there and these kids are only choosing
from the 30 that they know," she said.
There are at least three ways to learn
more about a career. Besides reading
up on the field, a University student can
turn to the career planning and placem-
ent office's alumni job network. Alumni
have given the office their names and
phone numbers and encourage students
to call them about their jobs.


Tomorrow; A look at the business

Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports
Kidnapped reporter finds refuge
WASHINGTON-American journalist Jeremy Levin, kidnapped 11 mon-
ths ago in Beirut, was freed yesterday in apparent good health and is being
cared for in Damascus, Syria, authorities said.
Levin, the Beirut bureau chief for Cable News Network, disappeared last
March 7.
Syrian Ambassador Rafic Jouejati said his government secured the 51-
year-old Levin's release, adding that the reporter had been examined at a
medical"center in the Syriancapital and found to be in good health.
Although the ambassador said the newsman was freed after negotiations,
a Syrian source said he had escaped and found his way to a Syrian military
post in eastern Lebanon.
"He escaped. He is with us," the source said. Christian-run Voice of
Lebanon radio in Beirut also reported his freedom as an escape.
"I fled toward midnight from the two-story villa where I was being held,"
Levin was quoted as saying. "I walked for two hours before hearing a dog
and humanvoices."
"I thought my kidnappers were at my heels so I hid under a truck. But
when I saw it was Syrian soldiers, I gave myself up," he said.
Toyo cops find poisoned candyx
TOKYO-Nearly a quarter of Japan's police were on alert yesterday to'
head off a Valentine's Day offensive by the "Man with 21 Faces" extortion
gang, which threatened to put cyanide-laced candy in stores across the nation.
Some 45,000 plainclothes and uniformed officers-about a quarter of the
nation's total police force-was ordered to duty in response to the discovery
of at least 13 poisoned candy packets Tuesday and Wednesday in Tokyo and
Police said tests confirmed that eight of the 13 packages-all marked with'
a warning that they contained poison-were spiked with lethal doses of
No injuries or deaths have been reported as a result of poisoned candy.
The "Man with 21 Faces" gang has mounted a nearly yearlong campaign
to extort payoffs from food and candy firms. But, while the gang has
managed to elude police, it apparently has yet to collect any of the money
it has demanded.
Philippine hotel fire kills 23;
still burning, authorities say
MANILA, Philippines-Authorities blamed arsonists yesterday for a
luxury hotel fire that killed at least 23 people and search teams hunted for
more victims in the blackened building, where fires were still burning.
Winds fanned new fires in previously untouched areas and the 460-room
hotel Regent of Manila Hotel, continued to belch black smoke early
today-48 hours after the deadly blaze broke out.
The bodies of 21 people were recovered and officials said two others had
been located. At least five Americans were killed and two remain unac-
counted for, a U.S. Embassy spokesman said.
Fire department officials said the death toll was expected to rise when the
nine-story hotel's top four floors are searched.
"They (victims) must be all over the place," said a major source who
requested anonymity. "Some stayed in their rooms and died there, some
miglt be in the hallways, in the elevators, or the stairways."
Vietnamese overrun rebel force
KHAO SARAPEE, Thailand-Vietnamese troops and armor sweeping
through the jungle behind a ferocious artillery barrage overran one Khmer
Rouge stronghold yesterday and seized part-of another in the western Cam-
bodia mountains, Tiai military officers reported.
The Thai border commander predicted the entire guerrilla complex would
fall by today. A knowledgeable Soviet bloc diplomat said ti may be the "tur-
ning point of the war" that broke out after Vietnam invaded Cambodia and
ousted Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge regime in January 1979.
With guerrilla forward defense lines shattered by three days of withering
artillery fire, 13,000 Vietnamese troops surged from the south and east in a
pincer movement that overwhelmed the Khao Din stronghold and captured
half the guerrilla headquarters at Phnom Malai, said Col. Chettha Than-
najaro, deputy commander of the Eastern border Field Force.
Hundreds of guerrillas fleeing the assault on Khao Din trudged northward
about 19 miles south of the key Thai border town of Aranyaprathet. The
seasoned fighters, who have roamed the Cambodia countryside for years,
took everything with them-field guns, food, even war elephants.
Israelis raid Lebanese village
SIDON, Lebanon-Israeli soldiers rolled into a south Lebanon village
yesterday, pushed French U.N. peacekeeping troops aside and bulldozed
four buildings they claimed were guerrilla weapon storehouses, United
Nations officials reported.
Sources in the area, who spoke on condition they not be identified, said the
Israelis knocked down three houses and a Shiite Moslem Civic center and
arrested more than 60 villagers during an eight-hour occupation of Bourj
Rahal. Shiite guerrillas make frequent raids on Israeli forces in the area.
Israeli military sources in Tel Aviv, Israel, said one man was killed in the
raid, and reporters said two villagers were wounded. The sources would
speak only on condition of anonymity.
The Israeli military command in Tel Aviv reported that elsewhere in south

Lebanon yesterday, Israelis killed 11 guerrillas and captured nine in one en-
