A ssociated Press
President George Bush pressed a
verbal barrage against Saddam
Hussein yesterday, suggesting from
the campaign trail that the Iraqi
leader had surpassed Hitler in some
sorts of brutality and pledging to
"see his aggression turned back."
"I don't think the status quo can
go on forever," Bush said. "I don't
4now how long is long enough" to
depend on sanctions alone to force
Iraq's withdrawal from Kuwait.
Bush said, "I'm not trying to

sound the tocsin (alarm) of war." His
spokesperson said the president was
speaking out "to prepare the Ameri-
can people for any eventuality."
Marlin Fitzwater said, "If we do
have to take dramatic action, we
want them to know why."
Bush's angry comments directed
at Saddam reflected an escalation in
rhetoric to match the United States'
growing military might in the Per-
sian Gulf region. The United States
has said up to 100,000 troops will

be dispatched to join the 220,000-
member force already deployed.
Iraq promised yesterday to release
four more American hostages soon
and insisted it was treating foreign
captives well.
Despite Iraqi assurances about the
captives' welfare, letters smuggled
from two American hostages and re-
leased by a U.S. official in Baghdad
painted a picture of fear and despera-
One of the unidentified Ameri-

cans said he had been moved five
times and was receiving no mail or
messages. He said he had lost 35
The other unidentified American

Iraq calls the detained foreigners
Iraq expressed renewed fears that
the United States will use reports of

hostage maltreatment as a pretext to
launch a military strike.
Iraqi Information Minister Latif
Jassim, announcing plans to free
four sick and elderly Americans,
denied the captives were being treated
badly. About 1,000 Americans are
believed to be held in Iraq and

In a heated and spirited debate,
four distinguished speakers addressed
the issue of pornography's role in
society last night in a packed Michi-
gan League Ballroom.
A crowd of more than 500 stu-
dents attended the forum entitled
"Censorship and Pornography:
Where do you draw the line?" The
event was sponsored by the campus
publication Consider.
Speakers included: Deen Kaplan,
spokesperson for the National Coali-
tion Against Pornography; Marcia

"From a legal standpoint,
pornography is not even free
speech," Kaplan said. "It is uncon-
scionable that (pornography) should
have a roll in our society."
Pally, a self-proclaimed feminist,
responded, "When you allow for the
censorship of pornography, all you
will do is establish a dangerous
precedent. Don't appoint someone
king and let him make decisions for
Heckling and occasional shouts
from the audience were prevalent
throughout the forum, contributing
to the tense atmosphere.
