Swiss
woman
.taken
hostage
BERN, Switzerland (AP) - A
Swiss woman was kidnapped in
northern Lebanon Sunday, two days
after the abduction of two Swiss Red
Cross workers, the Foreign Ministry
said yesterday.
Ministry spokesman Clemens
Birrer said the part-time flight atten-
dant was kidnapped by armed civil-
ians during a visit to the Mediter-
ranean port of Tripoli.
The woman's name and age were
withheld at the request of her par-
ents, Birrer said.
Her disappearance brings to 19
the number of Westerners missing in
Lebanon, including Americans.
Most are believed captives of Shiite
Moslems loyal to Iran.
Birrer said the woman's parents
asked authorities not publicize the
case, but he confirmed the kidnap-
p ng after being asked to comment
on unattributed news reports.
SSwitzerland requested help from
Syria because Syrian troops control
much of northern Lebanon, he added.
* Last Friday, two Swiss Interna-
tional Red Cross workers, Elio Er-
riquez and Emmanual Christen, were
abducted in southern Lebanon.
There have been no demands and
no claims of responsibility in the
kidnappings so far, and Birrer said
Swiss officials did not assume the
woman's abduction was connected to
the most recent kidnappings.

Collegiate Alcohol
Awareness week
begins tomorrow

By Jennifer Hiri
Daily Staff Writer
This Saturday marks the begin-
ning of National Collegiate Alcohol
Awareness Week in which various
groups will try to change student at-
titudes on drinking and make them
aware of the dangers of alcohol
abuse.
The Panhellenic Association, the
Michigan Student Assembly, and the
University Health Service will spon-
sor videos and speeches on the dan-
gers of alcohol, and hold non-alco-
holic beverage giveaways throughout
the week.
Several area bars and restaurants
will also participate in the festivities
by offering reduced prices on non-al-
coholic beverages.
"Pressure is in every school and
too many students turn to alcohol to
release themselves from tension,"
said Michele Thompson, an LSA
senior, who is the Panhellenic coor-
dinator of Alcohol Awareness Week.
"The purpose of the entire week
is to show students that they can
have a lot of fun and at the same
time ask themselves, 'Do I really
need to drink for entertainment?"'
she added.
The theme of this year's program
is "Think if you drink," a change
from last year's slogan, "Think be-
fore you drink."
"We wanted to stress the impor-
tance that students should think
about what they are doing while

drinking, not just before," said
Thompson.
Because of the reputation that
sororities and fraternities have for
drinking, Thompson is counting on;
the Greek system to play a vital part
in Alcohol Awareness Week.
Workshops featuring speakers
from the Substance Abuse Peer
Educators will be held at fraternities
and sororities throughout the week.
All students are invited to the sesj
sions.
"I think this week is especially,
good for the Greeks because their
goal is to change this reputation fy'
promoting that they are aware of the
alcoholic dangers," said Thompson;
All students are invited to share
in a non-alcoholic party with fret
Little Caesar's pizza and soft-drink&
Wednesday in the Diag, she added.
The University Health Service is
donating promotional posters which
will be displayed in residence halls
and the local campus bars and restau-
rants that are participating in the
week's programs.
"Looking at the whole week as a
whole, I'm hoping that everyone
will have fun with the absence of al-
cohol," said Thompson.
Alcohol Awareness Week runs
through next Friday.

Search uncovers key clue in
investigation of DC-10 crash

WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal
safety investigators said yesterday
they had found a pre-flight crack in
the DC-1O engine disk recovered
from an Iowa corn field nearly three
months after the crash of United
Flight 232.
James Kolstad, acting chairman
of the National Transportation
Safety Board, said the precise "size,
nature and reason for the crack" were

not yet determined.
But he said investigators are
hopeful further examination of the
engine part will lead to the cause of
the July 19 crash that killed 112 of
296 people aboard as the plane was
landing at the Sioux City, Iowa air-
port.
"There has been no determination
on whether this crack was detectable
before the accident. Nor has there

been a determination whether this
crack is the point of origin of engine
failure," said board spokesperson Ted
Lopatkiewicz.
