Iraq threatens Iran
with 'all-out war'
MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) - Iraq
said its war jets attacked with
missiles four tankers shuttling oil
along the Iranian coast in a 20-hour
span ending last night, as Baghdad
kept up pressure on Iran's vulnerable
The attacks coincided with a new
warning by Iraq of all-out war if Iran
fails to accept a cease-fire demanded
by the United Nations.
Iran retorted that it would pursue
its "holy war" against Iraq's secular
government until President Saddam
Hussein was toppled. The Persian
Gulf neighbors have been at war
since September 1980.
Shipping officials based int he

Iraqi News Agency said was carried
out after dark yesterday against a
"very large naval target" off Iran.
That phrase usually means a
tanker sailing between terminals on
Iran's gulf coastline. INA, monitored
in Cyprus, said all the warplanes
Iran also accused the United
States of mistreating 26 Iranian
seamen who were repatriated to
Tehran 'on Sunday after U.S.
helicopter gunships attacked and
disabled their minelaying landing
barge in the gulf.

A blowout. A shutout. A wipe-

"For political propaganda
purposes, the Americans offered to
give the crew members political

negative response by the Iranians,"
Ali Rabizadeh, an Iranian navy petty

The trial of a University fraternity
member accused of raping a sorority
woman took an unexpected twist
Friday when the prosecutor told the
court he received two calls from
women who claimed to have had to
"fight off' .the defendant sexual ad-
vances about three years ago.
But several people questioned
whether the the jury would be al-
lowed to hear the evidence. Prosecut-
ing attorney'Robert Cooper made the
charges while the jury had been ex-
cused from the courtroom so that he
could ask Washtenaw County Circuit
Court Judge Edward Deake to allow
the evidence without calling on the
women to testify. .-
Cooper said the two women wre-

center opens today

Today, the University opens this
fall's first new computer center. The
facility, in Room 3003 of the
Chemistry Building, has 13 Apple
Macintoshes, 39 Zeniths and a
The $254,000 cluster -is part of
the University's plan to have 1,500
open computers on campus by 1989.
With the new center, there will be
more than 1,000 computers on cam-
pus open to students, faculty and
It is the last cluster the Universi-
ty will open until September 1989,
when the University finishes con-
struction of a new center with 300
computers in the Angell-Mason Hall
The Chemistry Building was
chosen to house the new facility be-
cause of its central location; accord-
ing to Deborah Masten, assistant di-
rector at the Computer Center for
More than 3,000 first-year stu-
dents take introductory chemistry in
the building, said Masten. "The
freshmen alone passing through the
building is a large amount of the
student population," she said.
The center replaces a classroom
and a faculty lounge and has created a
temporary space shortage. The prob-
lem is expected to continue until the
new chemistry building is complete,
according to Chemistry Prof. A.H.
Francis. Officials expect the new
building to open in 1989.
Despite the inconvenience, Fran-
cis said, department faculty "are very,
excited because our general chemistry
course will use the very extensive
software library." The library had
been only available on old, worn out
computers. The programs have now
been converted to work on the.
Zeniths and will be available at the
The center is open 8 a.m. until
10 p.m. Monday through Friday.
