Cheney says buildup cost rising

WASHINGTON (AP) - Defense
Secretry Dick Cheney disclosed yes-
terday that the cost of the U.S. mili-
tary buildup in the Middle East could
total $15 billion in the next fiscal
year, but promised disgruntled law-
makers a "significant increase" in
help from Arab nations and other
American allies.
Cheney and Gen. Colin Powell,
the chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
testified before the Senate Armed
Services Committee, giving
Congress its first major update on
the massive American military
deployment that was begun in early
August.
Cheney's cost figure was above

the $1 billion-a-month estimate gen-
erally used by government officials,
and he added that costs "would mul-
tiply many fold" if U.S. troops be-
come involved in combat.
Several senators used yesterday's
session to show their distress over
the amounts of military backing
supplied by Arab nations in the
region, and financial support from
U.S. allies heavily dependent upon
Persian Gulf oil supplies.
"There's something missing
here," protested the committee chair,
Sen. Sam Nunn (D-GA), complain-
ing that no Arab military forces with
heavy armaments such as tanks or
artillery were on the ground in Saudi

Arabia.
Sen. William Cohen (R-Maine)
criticized both the West German
government and the Japanese for of-
fering little support to an operation
that was vital to keeping oil sup-
plies flowing to their economies.
"I find it appalling," Cohen told
Cheney and the general. "This kind
of cooperation from the allies... is
not going to stand well with me and
I hope with a lot of other members"
when it comes time to consider the
amount of U.S. funding that will go
to U.S. military forces helping pro-
vide for the defense of Western Eu-
rope and the Far East.
In his testimony, Cheney told the

E
t
l

senators that by Sept. 30, the end
the fiscal year, "we will have spent
more than $2.7 billion in additional
costs over and above budgeted funds"
on the new operation in the Middle
East.

MSA
Continued from page 1
"During the last assembly, when
Aaron was president... there was an
effervescent rebirth of the need for
procedure," said LSA Rep. Charles
- Dudley. "This time... we decided to
keep this fervor for procedure... it
came back to haunt (the Conserva-
tive Coalition)."
Others questioned whether the ac-
tion was only an attempt to avoid
debate on the issue.
"It was a despicable display of
power politics on the part of the
president," said LSA Representative
Tony Barkow.
Van Valey was following MSA
procedure in declaring the motion
out of order, said Dudley. "Her rul-
ing is right," he said. "She is the
chair."
The rules dictating the actions of
the summer MSA are at fault, said
Jonathan Uy, a Medical School rep-
resentative. "I think it was a dirty,
dirty trick to have that clause about
reversible," he said. "I just want the
revote (on whether PSC should re-
ceive the allocation)."

The parents of Indiana teenager
Becky Bell, who died of an illegal
abortion two years ago, urged a tear-
filledtMichigan League audience last
night to fight what they call the
"criminal" parental consent and
notification laws in the United
States.
Bill and Karen Bell, Becky's
parents, are in Michigan for the next
week as part of the nation-wide
campaign called "The Becky Beil-
Rosie Jimenez Campaign" to repeal
and prevent passage of all laws
which require pregnant, unmarried
women under 18 to obtain parental
permission before getting an
abortion.
The Bells presented a video,
"Abortion Denied: Shattering Young
Women's Lives," which featured
Becky's story. After the video, Bill
Bell spoke about the significance of
their daughter's death.
"Many of you know of young
women who who were able to go to
their parents. For those of you
women, the law is a mute point," he
said . "But take a Becky Bell or the
young women who fear physical
abuse - that segment of young
"People's feelings are different
from what is logical. It's logical to

be able to talk about it [abortion],
but I probably wouldn't because I,
wouldn't feel right'about it," said
LSA first-year student Amanda:
Flies.
When asked if she talked to
Becky about birth control, Karen.
Bell said, "I talked about sex and
what can happen. I didn't talk about
abortion, and I wish I had."
To mark the second anniversary.
of Becky's death, Michigan Planned
Parenthood will hold a candlelight
vigil Monday night on the Diag.
women who can't go to their parents'
are the target," he added.
Today the state legislature will,'
consider an initiative by the Right to
Life of Michigan to establish
mandatory parental consent or
notification. The Bells are in
Lansing to present the video and to
appeal to legislators not to pass the
initiative.
If the initiative fails, it will be'
placed on the 1992 election ballot.
Of the women under 18 who
attended the speech, most agreed that
if their parents had talked to them
about birth control and they still.
were to become pregnant, they,
would not want to tell their parents'

IRAQ
Continued from Page 1
sein's offer of free oil - in ex-
change for sending their own tankers
to get it - said no to the Iraqi
leader.
But Cuba and Romania have
struck oil deals with Iraq and compa-
nies elsewhere are trying to continue
trade with Baghdad, all in defiance of
U.N. sanctions, according to a State
Department survey. Romania denied
the allegation.
The report, made available to the
Associated Press, said some Eastern
European countries also are trying to
keep up their military sales to Iraq.
A well-informed source in Tehran
told The Associated Press that Iran
has agreed to an Iraqi request to
exchange food and medicine for up to

200,000 barrels of refined oil a day
and cash. There was no official
comment from Tehran or Baghdad on
the reported food-for-oil-deal.
Secretary of State James Baker,
meanwhile, met in Moscow with
Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze, two days after the
U.S.-Soviet summit that produced a
joint demand that Iraq withdraw from
Kuwait.
During the summit, Bush en-
couraged Mikhail Gorbachev to
withdraw 190 Soviet military spe-
cialists from Iraq, where they remain*
to fulfill contracts. Shevardnadze told
the Soviet parliament yesterday that
the specialists had not reneged on
those contracts for fear it would
jeopardize the 5,800 Soviet citizens
still in Iraq.
