OTTAWA (AP) - The United
States and its European allies forged
agreement with the Soviet Union
and East Germany yesterday on a
two-stage formula to reunite Ger-
many 45 years after the World War II
victors divided it.
The nations' foreign ministers re-
leased a terse statement on the
agreement, and U.S officials added
detail.
In the first stage, East Germany
and West Germany would meet on
legal, economic and political issues,
according to the statement. The talks
would begin soon after East Ger-
many holds its March 18 national
elections.
In the second stage the foreign
ministers of the two Germanys
would meet with the foreign minis-
ters of the U.S., France, Britain and
the U.S.S.R. "to discuss external
aspects of the establishment of Ger-
man unity, including the issues of
security of the neighboring states."

The statement, hammered out at
an East-West "open skies" confer-
ence, added that "preliminary discus-
sions at the official level will begin
shortly."
Although the statement was not
specific, among the "external
aspects" to be considered by the Big
Four allies of World War II - who
defeated Nazi Germany and its allies
in the most devastating war in his-
tory - will be whether the new
Germany is a member of the main
Western military alliance, the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization.

Americans kidnapped

in Colombia

CARTAGENA, Colombia (AP)
Leftist guerrillas kidnapped two
Americans to protest President
Bush's visit to Colombia next week
and said they would put their cap-
tives on trial, police said yesterday.
The Americans, snatched in the
drug capital of Medellin, were identi-
fied as David Kent and James Archer
Donelly, a police spokesperson said.
* The Colombian radio network
Caracol said its Medellin station re-
ceived a telephone call from an

anonymous man claiming to be a
spokesman for leftist guerrillas who
claimed responsibility for the abduc-
tions.
The man said the two men would
be put on trial and would be released
in five days, Caracol said. The caller
did not explain why there would be a
trial and why the captives would be
released.
The Colombian radio network
RCN said Kent was from Indianapo-
lis. The police said he had lived in

Medellin for several years and was a
teacher at the bilingual, a private
Colombo school.

The police spokesperson said the

kidnappers were from the National

There was no way to confirm if
the kidnappers really are leftist guer-

found in the past posing as leftist
insurgents.
The public affairs office of the
U.S. Embassy in Bogata said it was
trying to confirm the information on
the kidnappings.

PLO joins ANC '
and FMLN at Law

MSA

condemns

by Kathleen Engler
Despite a bomb threat, members
of the African National Congress
(ANC), Palestine Liberation Organi-
zation (PLO), and Farabundo Marti
Liberation National (FMLN) de-
fended their respective liberation
movements, compared their similar-
ities, and condemned U.S. involve-
ment in their country's political af-
fairs at the Law School last night.
Mamazani Xulu, chair of the
ANC Regional Women's Committee
in the U.S., began the speech with a
bang, crying "VIVA MENDELA!,"
but later she warned Americans not
to be fooled by Mandela's release.
"He is the authentic leader of the
people yet apartheid is still very
much in place.-
"We will have total liberation,"
continued Xulu, "united into a truly
democratic non-racial society. It is
not strictly a black/white issue.
White support in our liberation
movement is growing. It is the
government who is our enemy."
The American people can make a
difference, Xulu said. "You, the

people, demand withdrawal of
American corporations. It is their
money that funds the oppressive
government. Don't give loans. We
need our independence!"
Counselor-Permanent Observer
at the PLO Mission to the United
Nations Maha Khoury defined the
PLO in the beginning of her speech,
"There are innumerable misconcep-
tions in this country about the PLO.
We are a democratic, multi-party
system representing the Palestinian
people - students, women, workers.
You know us by an extremist, by
someone who demands media atten-
tion."
Half-way through the presenta-
tion the lights went out. Press
Spokesperson and Representative for
the FMLN Arnaldo Ramos remem-
bered the bomb threat, held up the
issued warning and thanked those
responsible for reminding him of
home. "These are the real terrorists."
"The time has come to bring the
war back to the US. There is no
longer a ghost of the Soviet Union.
Their borders are coming down,"

funding (

Daily MSA Reporter
After a heated debate at their
weekly meeting last night, the
Michigan Student Assembly passed
a resolution condemning the public
funding of a speech by Minister
Louis Farrakhan at Michigan State
University.
The resolution states that "MSA
expresses its outrage and opposition
to the actions of the MSU Provost,
and calls upon the ASMSU, Michi-
gan State University's Student gov-
ernment, in addition to the student
body of MSU at large, to protest
this allocation of tax-payers'
money."
The MSU Regents allocated
$1,000 to the student group "As
One" which the group is using to
bring Farrakhan to East Lansing.

speech
Farrakhan's comments in the past
have created much controversy, and
many have called him anti-semitic.
LSA sophomore Jon Polish, one
of the resolution's co-sponsors,
stressed in debate that the resolution
was not aimed specifically at Far-
rakhan, but at the use of public
funds to finance his speech.
"We are not against Farrakhan
speaking at MSU," Polish said.
"Anyone who wishes to speak at
this or any other university has the
right to. This resolution condemns
not Farrakhan, but that taxpayers'
money is going to him and his or-
ganization, without the approval of
the taxpayers."~
Second-year law student Bruce
Frank supported Polish's resolution,
and said that it is wrong for MSU to

said Ramos. "It is impossible to
achieve democracy in El Salvador
with U.S. Military occupation."
"Yes, we are the Left. The left
out. A period of world co-existence
is being ushered in. Stop military

aid," Ramos said.
Kristen Leblond, LSA junior,
said "the three speakers effectively
showed the interrelation between
their liberation movements and
brought each struggle closer to
home."

Ann Arbor Police are investigat-

Police revealed yesterday that they
