human side of war
BY LOUIS STANCATO
Although the media often
bombards us with stories of war,
many people are removed from
war's true effects. Starting today,
however, 54 teenagers from war-
torn countries will visit Ann Arbor
and other U.S. cities to illustrate
the personal side of combat.
Children from countries such as
Northern Ireland, South Africa, and
Central America are touring
America to educate people about
unstable areas of the world. The
children speak openly and
compassionately about their
countries' problems and about their
own feelings on war.
"When we talk about war, we
tend to forget people are involved.
These children will talk and try to
give a human face to war," said
Richard Cleaver, a member of the
American Friends Service
Committee (AFSE), the local
group coordinating the Ann Arbor
visit a week from Tuesday.
Guatemala, South Africa, Lebanon
and the Philippines will visit Ann
Arbor, while others will tour
statewide. Detroit was chosen for
its size and also because "parts of
the city resemble a war-zone,"
All too often U.S. foreign
policy debate remains abstract while
the people injured, the non-
combatants, have little say, he
The Children of War tour is
making its second American round.
The 1984 tour was so successful
that the group was nationally
spotlighted on Donahue, Nightline,
and other news programs.
The tour mostly caters to high
school students, with the '84 tour
reaching more than 25,000
students. This year the group will
appear at Plymouth-Canton and
Ann Arbor was chosen partly
because of Cleaver's affiliation with
the Task Force. It also is a unique
opportunity for the city to become
On November 25 Ann Arbor
Mayor Ed Pierce will welcome the
group in a public presentation, to
be held at the Ann Arbor Public
library. The presentation will
begin at 7:30 p.m.
COMPILED FROM ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTS
Hasenfus denied parole
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - Justice Minister Rodrigo Reyes rejected
yesterday the possibility of pardoning American Eugene Hasenfus, who
drew 30 years in prison for his part in a weapons delivery flight to U.S.-
backed Contra rebels.
"There is no reason to pardon him," Reyes told the Associated Press
by telephone one day after a political court handed down the verdict and
the sentence. "The Nicaraguan penitentiary system will guarantee that he
fulfills his sentence."
Reyes, chief prosecuter in the case, said, "If a pardon is applicable, I
am sure there will be a rejection by the population and the authorities
would have to explain that step very well."
Pro-government newspapers yesterday billed the verdict against
Hasenfus as a conviction of the United States as well.
Hasenfus was the lone survivor when Sandinista forces in southern
Nicaragua on Oct. 2 shot down a C-123 plane he said was carrying small
arms and ammunition to U.S.-backed rebels.
U.S. leaders call for ending
arms shipments to Iran
WASHINGTON-Secretary of State George Shultz said yesterday the
United States should make no more arms shipments to Iran, contending
"I don't see any need for further signals" of U.S. good faith to moderate
Meanwhile, John Poindexter, President Reagan's national security
adviser, said the U.S. arms embergo against Iran still stands and said he
remains optimistic that more hostages may be released by pro-Iran forces
But Robert McFarlane, former national security advisor who made at
least one secret trip to Iran, said his contacts among.moderate Iranians are
in danger of being killed now that his efforts have been made public.
Senate Democratic leader Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.V.), urged the
administration to state publicly that there would be no more arms
shipments to Iran "or any other terrorist state." A congressional
investigation into administration dealings with Iran, which Reagan denies
were direct negotiations for the release of hostages, is to begin this week
Unrest threatens Philippines.
MANILA, Philippines - Thousands of demonstrators marched
through downtown Manila yesterday denouncing Defense Minister Juan
Ponce Enrile, and a labor official told them guns may be needed to
Nick Elman, an official of the leftist May 1st Movement labor union,
also said the 500,000-member union would strike nationwide Thursday to
coincide with the funeral of its slain leader, Rolando Olalia, a supporter
of President Corazon Aquino.
The union, the Philippines' largest, has also called for a general strike
today in Manila.
At a rally by about 15,000 people in downtown Manila yesterday,
Mrs. Aquino said: "I want to be known as a leader of peace, but if there
is no other choice, I am ready to lead a war."
Syria denies terrorist ties °
DAMASCUS, Syria - President Hafez Assad denied that Syria was
involved in terrorism and accused President Reagan and Britain's Prime
Minister Margaret Thatcher yesterday of being the "real terrorists" and
trying to bully Syria.
"We are against terrorism, we don't practice it and do not allow
anyone to hatch terrorist plots from our territory," Assad told about
7,000 people at a Damascus stadium on the 16th anniversary of the coup
that brought him to power.
Britain cut ties with Syria last month after a Jordanian, Nezar
Hindawi, was convicted of working with Syrian diplomats in trying to
plant a bomb on an Israeli airliner in London.
The United States tightened trade controls and banned commercial
flights between Syria and America. The Common Market, with the
exception of Greece, banned the sale of new arms to Syria, suspended
high-level official visits and agreed to review the activities of their
diplomats in Syria.
Marchers finish journey
WASHINGTON - The 3,700-mile walk for nuclear disarmament
called the Great Peace March ended Saturday with a round of rallies, a day,
after entering the capital to the double roar of rock music and police
"Every day we walk we're that much more successful...We've inspired
people to feel that one person can make a difference," Charles Davidson
of San Fernando, Calif., said Friday, shortly before 1,000 exuberant
marchers surged across the district line brandishing flags and banners
Some started out with the march in Los Angeles, others joined in
along the way. A band of hardy idealists on a mission to convert their
fellow Americans, they walked interstates and main streets across the land
spreading their gospel to all who would listen.
Their footsteps have "put peace in the headlines," said Diane Clark,
one of the orginal marchers, a Jamestown, N.Y., kindergarten teacher and
honorary mayor of the mobile municpality calling itself Peace City.

elements normally is used by
authorities here to describe

Lieberthal and other Western
intelligence sources said that
Sung's successor, Kim Chong-Il,
would be an unstable and
unpredictable ruler. Some sources
said that Chong-Il initiated the
attempt on the life of the South
Korean head of state on his recent
visit to Burma.
There was no explanation why
communist North Korea would
disclose the information, through
the loudspeakers along the
demilitarized zone that divides the
peninsula. They normally are used
for propoganda broadcasts beamed
to the south.
