Pursell participates in
Peace March ceremony

By LESLIE ERINGAARD
The Great Peace March turned
political Saturday when U.S. Rep.
Carl Pursell(R-Ann Arbor) showed
up at the marcher's tree-planting
ceremony on the lawn of City Hall.
Pursell, whose appearance was
unexpected, joined other local
politicans in placing soil around
the 106th tree planted by the
marchers since their cross-country
journey began last March.
THE FIVE-TERM congress-
man said he supported the
marcher's efforts but members of
the audience passed around leaflets
criticizing his support of aid to the
Nicaraguan contras.
L LSA senior Margie
Winkleman, a march participant,
noted that both Pursell and
University graduate student Dean
Baker, the Democratic challenger
in November's elections, were in
the audience. Baker upset Don
Grimes in the Democratic primary
last August for the chance to face
Pursell in the fall..
WINKLE MAN , who earlier

had called the ceremony " non-
political , " criticized Pursell's
votes on Contra aid, weapons
systems, and women's rights.
She later apologized to both
candidates for injecting politics
into the ceremony, which was also
attended by Ann Arbor Mayor Ed
Pierce. state Sen. Lana Pollack(D -
Ann Arbor), and state Rep. Perry
Bullard.
Baker was surprised by
Pursell's -appearance. "I think
Pursell is trying to convince people
now that he is supportive of peace,"
he said, adding, "no one's that
stupid."
BAKER said Pursell has voted
consistently in the past for weapons
systems such as the Trident
Missile and increased spending
for the Strategic Defense Initiative.
Baker said pressure from his
own grass-roots campaign has
forced Pursell to alter his stances.
"I think he's really scared," said
Baker.
Pursell recently voted for a
bilateral nuclear test ban treaty, a
ban on chemical weapons, a

smaller increase in SDI funding,
an reduced funding for'weapons
that violate the Salt II treaty.
In an interview Saturday,
Pursell said he is "optimistic" that
an arms control agreement can
soon be reached with the Soviet
Union. In response to Mayor
Pierce's call for unilateral nuclear
disarmament, Pursell; said he
would prefer bilateral
disarmament by both the U.S. and
the Soviet Union.
He expressed support for Ann
Arbor's sister-city relationship
with a Nicaraguan town, calling it
a "good, people-oriented program."
Daily staff writers Beth Fertig
and Michael L4stig filed reports
for this story.

Fellow marcher Donna
4ickey added, "Ann Arbor has
been really progressive. People
are asking really good questions,
they're receptive and have shown
a genuine interest. The people
who stopped and talked were
really supportive."
dickey said that during her
:three-hour shift at the group's
Ttable on the Diag, she collected 300
signatures on a petition calling
for global nuclear disarmament.
She estimates the group earned
approximately $400 in bucket
.drives on campus Friday.
THE CAMP-out on the Diag
Friday night was limited to
women. Winkelman said she
did not think the prohibition
would alienate men.
The 40 women from the Great

rally,

slee

Peace March were joined on their
Diag camp-out by another 20 or 30
women from the local
community. They ate a pot-luck
supper, sang songs, and
socialized. A guard was
appointed at all times to watch
over the camp-site.
Gretchen Bronan , said she
joined the demonstration
"Because women need to gather
all over the planet now. It's
crucial because we're the people
that give birth to life, we have to
make sure that all of our efforts
aren't. destroyed by a single
button push."
MANY STUDENTS who
encountered the women while
walking across the Diag had
favorable reactions to the
encampment.

on Diag
Freshman Rob Sibley said, "I
think global disarmanent is a
good cause. Just the whole set-up
for a bunch-of women to come and
camp out shows how serious they
are," he said
Sophomore Glen Anderson
added "I think it's great. I'd-love
to do something like this if I
could."
TheGreat Peace March is
currently composed of about 650
people from all around the world.
Present within the Women's
Collective this weekend were
marchers from New Zealand,
Australia, and England. Within
the march are also an Over 50's
coalition, a Viet Nam veterans'
group, and other informal
collectives.

,Terrorism follows trend,

By JOHN DUNNING
This week's terrorist activity
in Pakistan and Istanbul does not
show any new trends in Middle
Eastern violence, say three
University "political science
professors.
The resurgance in terrorism,
coming after a summertime lull,
is nothing new, according to Prof.-
Ronald Inglehart. Upward and
downward surges in Middle East
terrorism have been occuring
regularly for 10 years, but have
recently been increasing in
number. "There's fluctuation,
but the trend over the last 10 years
har 'been upward," Inglehart
said.
"WE'VE HAD an unusually
quiet summer, but I don't think
terrorism is going to go away,"
said Prof. Samuel Barnes.

"Violence and politics have
always gone together."
Recent attacks include Arab
speaking commandos hijacking
a Pan American World Airway
jumbo jet on Friday in Karachi,
Pakistan, killing at least 15
people; and Arab terrorists
storming a synagogue in
Istanbul, Turkey on Saturday,
killing at least 21 people.
Americans will likely be the
targets of tbrrorist attacks in the
future at an increasing rate, the,
professors said. "As a dominant
country, we are likely to be targets
of people with frustrations," said
Barnes.
PROF. Raymond Tanter, an
expert on the Middle East, said
that trying to predict when
terrorists will strike next is not

'U' profs say
difficult. "Terrorism follows a
logic of its own, it has a rythmn
which is not easily broken."
Tanter said.
Tanter explained that it takes
about- three months for a teirorist
organization to organize an
attack, and about one additional
month to implament the plan,
Tanter said that terrorism
runs in three to four month
cycles. As an example, he cited
the last major terrorist attack
involving Americans - the April
5 Berlin bombing that killed a
U.S. soldier and a Turkish
woman.
Inglehart said he expects the
recent increase in terrorist
,attacks to continue. Excluding
1986, "1985 has been the worst
year up-to-date," he said.
