Belgian activist urges
further disarmament

Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports

Daily Staff Writer
With the recent Intermediate Nu-
clear Forces treaty and plans for mil-
itary reduction by Soviet premier
Mikhail Gorbachev, "people think
they have already won the battle
against disarmament, but it's not
true," Denise Peeters, a Belgian fem-
imfist and peace activist, said last
Peeters, a member of the Chris-
'an peace group Pax Christi and the
National Council of the Belgium
Women, offered a European perspec-
tive on the situation "beyond the
Cold War" to 40 people at the Rack-
ham Amphitheater.

brought a group of European ac-
tivists, parliament members, and re-
searchers to visit with American
grassroots activists in an effort to
mobilize the disarmament move-
ment. The tour was sponsored by the
British American Security Inforra-
tion Council.
While the two superpowers have
agreed to withdraw missiles from
some European countries, the
speaker said, the continent still faces
a strong nuclear presence.
"(The Europeans) are very much
concerned about the way the Ameri-
can military authorities are talking
about the modernization of their ar-
mament (in Belgium and other Eu-
ropean countries)," she said.
The program, sponsored by the
Campus Women's Action for Nu-
clear Disarmament (WAND), high-
lighted the role of women in the
"I believe in the action of women
in (the peace movement)," Peeters
said. "Peace in a patriarchal society
is something very hard to obtain."
The ensuing discussion empha-
sized the varying perspectives and
backgrounds involved in the disar-
mament movement. "We heard a lot
of people from different countries
tonight, which got debate going
about the difference between the
movements in Europe and here in
the United States," said Residential
College senior Sarah Cooley, a co-
coordinator of WAND who helped
organize the program.

Sandinistas resume fighting
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - Sandinista troops launched attacks in
Nicaragua's central and northern mountains yesterday to try and wipe out
outnumbered Contra forces that have infiltrated from Honduras, according
to reports.
Lt. Col. Rosa Pasos, a military spokeswoman, said most of the action
was concentrated on rebels sneaking into Nicaragua, but she would con-
firm only one attack near Quilali, in the border province of Nueva
"What the lifting of the cease-fire does is give us the possibility of or-
ganizing offensives in a more organized manner and with greater fire-
power," Pasos said.
President Daniel Ortega ended a 19-month cease fire Wednesday, saying
the Contras had been stepping up attacks inside Nicaragua. He also
blamed the United States for the renewed attacks and accused President
Bush of promoting "terrorism."
Colombian judges strike
BOGOTA, Colombia - Judges and court workers began a series of
nationwide strikes yesterday, a day after another judge and a congressman
were murdered, apparently by drug traffickers.
In Medellin, where the judge was killed, federal judges walked off the
job indefinitely until they receive more protection.
It is the third time the judges have gone on strike in the last three
months, with each walkout following the assassination of a federal judge.
In the last eight years 222 workers, including 43 judges, have been killed,
most of them by drug traffickers.
In the latest slaying, federal Judge Mariela Espinoza was killed by
submachine gun fire from two speeding cars as she arrived at her Medellin
home Wednesday night with two motorcycle guards. It was not
immediately known if she had handled drug trafficking cases.
In Bogota federal Rep. Luis Francisco Madero was killed with a pistol
shot to the head Wednesday night outside his apartment.
Iranians to mark ,seizure of
U.S. embassy by mass protest
TEHRAN, Iran - Radicals are planning an outpouring of hatred to-
morrow to mark the day the U.S. Embassy was seized in 1979, and some
diplomats view the plans as a challenge to President Hashemi Rafsan-
jani's more moderate faction.
Radicals have whipped up anti-American passion for days, undermin-
ing what had appeared to be a government attempt at moderation on the
10th anniversary of the beginning of 444 days in captivity for 52 Ameri-
Workers strung scores of cloth banners yesterday between the maple
trees lining Taleghani, a broad avenue that runs past the embassy's main

Saturday, 10 for each of the 16 Shiites beheaded in Saudi Arabia in
September for bombings in the holy city of Mecca during this year's an-
nual Moslem pilgrimage. The bombs killed one man and wounded 16.
German exodus continues
PRAGUE, Czechoslovakia - More than 1,300 young East Germans
jammed the West German Embassy yesterday to seek new lives in the
West, and many scoffed at promised reforms in the Communist homeland
they left behind.
In East Berlin, Communist leader Egon Krenz urged closer economic
ties to the West and said a new law permitting freedom of travel to the
West would be announced Monday. Several top Communist officials re-
signed, including the wife of ousted leader Erich Honecker.
At least 8,000 East Germans swarmed into Czechoslovakia after East
Germany lifted a month-old travel ban on Wednesday, the official East
German news agency ADN said. It is the only country East Germans can
visit freely.
Most of those flooding into the embassy in Prague were in their early
20s. At least 200 to 300 children could be seen behind a fence playing
peacefully on the embassy grounds.
Couch potatoes don't have
to row to live longer lives
CHICAGO (AP) - Couch potatoes who dive under the sofa cushions
at the thought of an hour on the rowing machine can take heart from a
study that finds that even moderate exercise can prolong one's life.
"You don't have to be an athlete; you don't have to do vigorous hours
of exercise every week to get some obvious benefits," said Dr. Steven
Blair, a co-author of the study published in Friday's Journal of the
American Medical Association.
Indeed those who don't exercise at all can get the greatest benefit from
exercise, said Blair. And it is time for them to start - fewer than 10
percent of adult Americans exercise at levels recommended by the surgeon
general, said Blair.

The study by Blair and others at the Institute for Aerobics Research in
Dallas indicated that if all the unfit people surveyed had become fit, the
death rates might have dropped by 9 percent in men and 15.3 percent in
