assistant director resigns
yesterday. "I have a range of research
projects that I have been slowly
working on that now I can devote
more time to." Larimore, who
currently teaches one RC class per
term, will also become a full-time
RC faculty member.
As an RC associate director,
Larimore is involved with
admissions and recruitment, as well
;as developing educational programs
and evaluation procedures. She also
organized the RC's 20th anniversary
reunion last term.
Eagle has offered an associate
director's position to a unnamed
minority candidate, but said he will
not know until next week if the
position has been filled. Under
Eagle's directorship, the RC will
only have one associate director, as
it had before Douvan.
Some students were surprised by
Larimore's resignation; unlike
Douvan, she did not send resignation
announcements to RC students.
Students who have worked with her
on the RC executive committee
praised Larimore's contributions to
the program from its inception, and
described her influence on Douvan's
administration as strong.
"(Her resignation) is obviously
going to have a great impact. She's
an important figure in the RC
community," said Scott Fedewa, an
RC senior and former executive
Jeff Allen, an RC junior and
member of the RC director search
committee, said, "Ann is a
wonderful person who's been
working with and developing the
program for a long time."
But Allen added, "She's been the
source of a lot of frustration from
people who want to get things
changed in the RC by not always
addressing student interests."
Eagle said that as RC director he
will try different strategies and
approaches than Douvan, but would
not elaborate in order to avoid a
criticizing the present
"What the RC can do to recruit
more minority faculty and students
is a central concern right now,
though," Eagle said.

U. S. to reduce forces In Gulf
WASHINGTON - A top Pentagon official said yesterday the United
States was withdrawing some ships from escort and mine-clearing duties
in the Persian Gulf, and expressed concern that Iraqi forces were engaging
in dangerous manuevers near U.S. ships.
In a wide-ranging briefing at the Pentagon, Armitage confirmed that
the United States was now reducing the number of U.S. warships in the
Persian Gulf, and said the administration had no plans to offer military
protection to U.S.-owned ships flying foreign flags.
Richard Armitage, assistant defense secretary for international security
affairs, said the United States had already protested to Baghdad an incident
over the weekend involving an Iraqi jet that fired a missile near a U.S.
Meese receives JOA proposal

The Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press requested permission to
merge their advertising, circulation and production departments and to
enter into a profit-sharing agreement under a law designed to protect
newspaper competition when one of the publications is in danger of
going out of business.
One union, the Newspaper Guild of Detroit, remained opposed to the
Justice Department spokesperson Mark Sheehan said he expected
Meese to act as promptly as he can on the JOA request.
Israeli deputy chief of staf f
condemns soldiers' behavior
JERUSALEM - Israel's deputy chief of staff said yesterday some
soldiers had committed "totally unacceptable" acts against Palestinians,
and hospital officials reported three Arabs wounded by troopers in the
Maj. Gen. Ehud Barak also said more than 200 Israelis had been
injured, most of them lightly, since Arab riots began Dec. 8 in the
occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. He said 53 Palestinians had been
killed, but the United Nations puts the number at 54.
Barak confirmed some soldiers had used a bulldozer to bury four
Palestinians alive near the West Bank city of Nablus and declared, "This
pattern of behavior... is totally unacceptable under the standards of the
Israeli Defense Forces and any civilized norms. Whoever is found
responsible for this event will be punished."
Two killed in office shooting
SUNNYVALE, Calif. - A former employee shot at least eight
people at a Silicon Valley company's offices yesterday, and two were
believed to be dead, authorities said.
The man, who reportedly was upset over a relationship with a female
employee he had been dating, barricaded himself inside the two-story ESL
Corp. building. Witnesses said employees hid under desks and inside
At least three employees were, holed up inside a computer room and
made telephone calls to police.
The gunman, who called police from a telephone inside the building,
said he shot three people on the first floor "and as many on the second
floor," Capt. Hal Scott of the Sunnyvale Public Safety Department said.
The man "shows a little bit of remorse," said Lt. Tom Moore of the
Woman finds 'no end to fun'
of launching bottles into seas
CHICAGO (AP) - If you have an urge to send somebody a message
in a bottle, Edna Hulbert can give you some hints. She started throwing
bottles in bodies of water 66 years ago, when she was 17.
She's received replies from people in France, England, and Spain, and
even played matchmaker to a French couple getting married in June.
"It doesn't cost any money and I'm hearing from people I never knew.
There was no end to the fun I've had," said Hulbert, 83.
Although she doesn't drink, Hulbert prefers liquor bottles because they
float best. She used to pour her late husband's Scotch into empty mustard
and ketchup jars so she could have the empties.
She tossed her first message into the Mississippi River near St. Louis
and has since lobbed bottles into the Hudson River, the Thames in
England, the Caribbean and Mediterranean seas, a Montana lake, and the
canals of Amsterdam.
