Western jumped out to a 2-0 lead

by starting defensemen Chris Clark
and Mike Posma.
The Wolverines had only one
good scoring chance in the period on
a point-blank backhander by center
Mike Moes. Horn, who had been
victimized by shots through his legs

More than 300 students from
colleges throughout the midwest at-
tended a Political Leadership Train-
ing Seminar yesterday to gain in-
sight into U.S-Israeli relations and
learn how to get involved in lobby-
ing for pro-Israeli causes in Wash-
Sponsored by the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee, a lobby-
} ing group for the American Jewish
community, the day-long conference
at the business school focused on
teaching students about current
events in the Middle East.
AIPAC's Campus Leadership
Director Rachel Weinberg said the
conference, from a political perspec-
tive, was also aimed at teaching stu-
dents the various ways they can get
involved in the American political
The students participated in vari-
ous workshops and listened to sev-
eral speakers, including Congress
member Howard Wolpe (D-Mich.).
In reference to the recent uprising
in the Gaza Strip, Wolpe said the
Israeli military is "ill equipped" to
handle the Palestinian retaliation.
Wolpe said written guidelines for
using "lethal force" should be estab-
Wolpe recognized an "urgent
need" to restore some sort of politi-
cal process to the area; he said
Secretary of State George Shultz's
peace initiative, "albeit very late,
should be encouraged."
Elsy Ben-Ezra, an LSA senior,
said she came to the conference
seeking some effective ways to ad-
dress the problem in the Gaza Strip.
"I've been very passive until now,
but what's been happening recently
has really disturbed me," Ben-Ezra
In addition to the situation in the
West Bank, the seminar stressed po-
litical activism. The workshop enti-

MSA OFFERS REWARD:
Caller claims he made threat
By JIM PONIEWOZIK
and RYAN TUTAK
A man identifying himself as a Black Univer-
sity student contacted The Daily last night to
claim responsibility for a death threat received
last Tuesday by a member of the United Coali-
tion Against Racism steering committee.
But the UCAR member who received the call
said that, based on his explanation of the inci-
dent, she did not believe he is the caller.
Also yesterday, the Michigan Student Assem-
bly's steering committee passed a resolution of-
fering a $2,500 reward for information leading to
the arrest or conviction of the person who made
the death threat.
THE UCAR member discovered the threat
on her answering machine Tuesday night. The
message, in a male voice, attacked her for state-
ments she made in The Daily and threatened to
rape and kill her.
The man, who would not reveal his name,
apologized for the incident, which he said was
"immature," an accident, and intended as a practi-
cal joke on a friend of his who he said had been
quoted earlier in The Daily.
The man said he was in his room with some
friends who were planning to make threatening
phone calls to another friend and the UCAR of-
fice. He said he offered to speak on the phone for
his friends, who are white, and who had planned
on speaking in an imitation Black accent.
HE SAID he took the phone from a friend
of his, who had already dialed the "UCAR" num-
ber, and left the threatening message, thinking
that his friend had dialed the other friend's num-
ber. He said he disguised his voice to sound "deep
and scratchy," but did not try to disguise the fact
that he was Black.
But the UCAR member said yesterday that the
man's description of his voice did not describe
the one on her answering machine.
"The voice on my answering machine sounded
like it was white," she said, adding that people
for whom she has played the recording also
thought it was a white person's voice.
"HE COULD very well be lying," she said.
"It sounds like he is to me."
