fought, and ran north on State,"

party-goers to show University

Although no alcohol or smoking
was allowed, Mitchell said they were
"not too stringent" about looking for
alcohol being brought in. Fraternityj
members frisked "mostly males who3
had coats on," Mitchell added.
A University hospital spokesper-
son said only one of the stabbing
victims - with a wound to the

abdomen - is considered seriously
injured. Although she did not release
names, hospital spokesperson
Kristen Lidke Finn said yesterday
that three of the stabbing victims

condition and the other in good
Union Security Officer
Rodriguez Thompson, who received
head and body injuries on the second
floor of the Union, said that he felt
"a little shaky" yesterday and was
listed in fair condition.
In response to the fighting, the
Union closed its doors early Saturday
morning and was closed at nine
Saturday and Sunday evenings "to
assure safety," Harrison said.
A party scheduled for Saturday
night was cancelled "to let things
cool down," he continued.

Tki 747 aircraft, which left Amman

One woman was suffering chest
pains and three children from another
family were feeling ill. All four,
plus the children's mother, got off
the plane in Halifax and were taken
to a hospital, he said.
The passengers told harrowing tales
of escape from Kuwait. They said
they went into seclusion after Iraq's
invasion Aug. 2 because Westerners
were at risk if they moved freely.
They also spoke of the brave but

outmanned resistance fighters trying
to battle Iraqi invasion forces.
"I was lucky enough and smart
enough to get away," said Jimmy
Hawkins of Dallas, who worked as
an engineer in Kuwait. "Americans
can't go out. No way. If you don't
have Arab friends, you're stuck."
Oriole Hart of Denver, a computer
analyst for a bank in Kuwait, de-
scribed how she hid out for the last
month before she could contact offi-
cials and get on the first evacuation

Because of the international eco-

United Nations, Iraq is now hobbled
by supply line problems, shortages
of spare parts and a lack of foreign

Iraqi attack into Saudi Arabia would

dam Hussein that if Iraq were to pro-
voke military action, then the result
would be a tragedy first and foremost
for the Iraqi people, themselves, for
the whole of the region and for the
whole of the world."
The leaders spoke with reporters

following the release of their joint
summit declaration that said: "We
are united in the belief that Iraq's ag-
gression must not be tolerated. No
peaceful international order is possi-
ble if larger states can devour their
smaller neighbors...
"Our preference is to resolve the
(Persian Gulf) crisis peacefully, and
we will be united against Iraq's ag-
gression as long as the crisis exists,"
they declared.
The statement stood in unprece-
dented contrast to Cold War bicker-
ing that accompanied crises during
the past four decades.
The statement also said that once
Iraq withdraws from Kuwait, the two
countries will work with nations in
the region to develop regional secu-
rity structures and measures to pro-
mote peace and stability.
The American president said So-
viet support for anti-Iraq sanctions
"gets me inclined to recommend as
close cooperation in the economic
field as possible." He said there had
been a "good long discussion" on
Soviet requests for economic assis-

The possibility that sanctions
