Iraq to double
*mT ilitary forces
Associated Press
Iraq said yesterday it will pour 250,000 more troops
into Kuwait, more than doubling its military strength
in the occupied emirate and giving Iraq a superiority that
"others cannot match."
The Iraqi News Agency announced the troop buildup
11 days after President Bush said the United States
would send an additional 200,000 soldiers to the gulf,
bringing the American force to about 430,000.
* Bush was in Paris for the signing of an arms reduc-
tion treaty by NATO and Warsaw Pact members. He
used the gathering to try to win more support for a
United Nations resolution authorizing an attack to drive
Iraq from Kuwait, but Soviet President Mikhail

36 nations sign arms pacts

by 1. Matthew Miller
PARIS - The leaders of 34 European
nations, Canada and the U.S. gathered here
for the conference on Security and Co-
operation in Europe (CSCE) yesterday for
a three-day summit. The main task of the
summit was to achieve understanding bet-
ween the nations of the region.
The leaders are following an agenda
with three main goals. The first, ac-
complished Sunday morning, was the
signing of a treaty which limits the sizes
of conventional forces in Europe (CFE).
The 110-page CFE agreement nu-
merically defines the numbers of forces
and weapons on the continent. The leaders
of the 22 NATO and Warsaw pact

' i

countries all signed the treaty.
Second, the leaders of all 34 nations
signed an agreement with the goal of
codifying the end of the Cold War. This
treaty virtually outlaws conflict between
European nations by declaring that NATO
and the Warsaw Pact are "no longer ad-
versaries."
Third, the leaders will institute a
continental conflict prevention center - a
de facto European security council.
Leaders from 15 nations spoke to the
Conference pledging their support for con-
tinued European peace and stability.
"Ideas of a European home, a European
confederation and a European peaceful

order combine to make up a political
scheme we will all have to develop and
implement in the '90s," said Soviet
President Mikhail Gorbachev.
"Europe should, indeed must, become a
bedrock of peace and harmony, security
and stability," said German Chancellor
Helmut Kohl.
The CSCE is also a reunion of the
parties to the 1975 Helsinki agreements
which outlawed human rights violations
and leaders were anxious to invoke
Helsinki as the precursor to upheaval in
Eastern Europe.

-in on

deputization, activism

by Jon Casdeq
Students who spent last week
shouting "No Guns, No Cops, No
Code," quelled their chants to speak
on the issue of campus deputization
yesterday at a Michigan Student As-
sembly-sponsored teach-in.
Event organizers estimated more
than 1,000 people attended the
teach-in held during the day at the
Michigan Union.
Faculty and student speakers ad-
dressed deputization as well as the
installation of a non-academic code
of conduct, and the conflict in the
Persian Gulf.
The largest crowd of the day was
drawn by Michigan Student Assem-
bly representative and Student
Rights Committee Chair Corey
Dolgon, who discussed the deputi-
zation issue in front of an estimated
350 people.
Dolgon emphasized the need for
the administration to listen to stu-
dents' concerns and to put funds
into improving safety in other ways
on campus.
Students and speakers at the
teach-in encouraged people to be-
come involved with the movement
and to press for student input into
other decisions at the University.
"Our goals have broadened, now
we believe that every student group

that has demands has the right to
negotiate those demands with the
University," said Carl Burns, LSA
senior.
Smaller seminars informed stu-
dents about the development of so-
cial movements, and how they re-
lated to the current state of ac-
tivism. Another discussion focused
on student apathy.

cerned, I have not done anything
and I wanted to come here to see
what was going on. Now, I'm defi-
nitely for (the anti-deputization
movement)," Yanoff said.
"I definitely have better insight,
and as far as the administration is
concerned, I had rose-colored glasses
on," she added. "I'll probably be
active now; I want my parents to

believe that every student group that has

demands with the University'
-Carl Burns
LSA senior

The teach-in also featured discus-
sions on homeless people and their
relationships with police, on
women and police and on how the
University administration operates.
"I was never really previously
concerned with the student rights
movement," said LSA first-year-
student Pete Kroll. "I'm here to get
more informed. I read a lot and hear
a lot (about deputization), but until
I'm informed, I can't get involved."
LSA sophomore Lisa Yanoff
had similar reasons for attending.
"As far as student rights is con-

know what's going on, and I want
to be furthered informed."
Volunteers said they were
pleased with the turnout at the
event.
"We've had all viewpoints repre-
sented, including off-campus per-
spectives," said volunteer and LSA
junior Paul Friedman. "We don't
offer a pro-deputization viewpoint
because information on that is read-
ily available. We're offering stu-
dents the chance to learn the facts
on the situation. That's what this
teach-in is about."

Python
found
alive in
Couzens
by Lari Barager
Daily Staff Reporter
Dog, the elusive four-foot python
who has been loose in Couzens Hall
for two weeks, has been found.
A worker from Occupational
Safety and Environmental Health
(OSEH) found him alive and well in
a storage closet.
Dog was found only two doors
from his former owners' room. Dog
is now in the possession of ;the
Humane Society and his owners,
first-year students Gary Schultzand
Aaron Hammer, are wondering if
they will get their pet back.
"They told us they'd give it back
to us, and we'd have the opportunity
to sell it back to the pet shop,"
Schultz said.
Schultz and Hammer will be
evicted from the residence hall at the
end of the semester. Residence hall
staff said the two are not likely to
get their pet back.
"I don't think they've demon-
strated that they can handle a pet,"
said Ellen Shannon, Couzens Hall
building director.
The students are waiting to hear
an assessment of expenses to the
dorm incurred during the search.
"We have a running tab on the
expenses for notifying residents, get-
ting Critter Control, and OSEH staff
time, and we'll be billing them
(Schultz and Hammer)," Shannon
The total bill hasn't been final-
ized yet, but it will be a few
hundred dollars, Shannon said.
"I'm going to have to pay $150
to Critter Control. As for the dam-
ages to the dorm, I shudder to think
how much that's going to be,"
Schultz said.
"Dog's popularity has brought
fame and recognition to Couzens
dorm," said first-year LSA student
Tina Casanova, a Couzens resident.
Casanova, along with two of her
friends have been marketing "I saw

The scent of blood isn't the only
thing that has ebbed - so has the
opportunity for the University to
prevail in the Michigan-Ohio State
Blood Battle.
For the third time in nine years,
Ohio State has captured the Blood
Battle trophy. Ohio State attained
102.2 percent of its collection goal
while the University met 88.1
percent of its quota.
The University collected a total
of 3,531 units of blood, 352 more
units of blood than Ohio State
gathered.
Each college sets a quota for ob-
taining blood based on the regional
hospitals' needs.
The quota for the University is

higher thanU nioM tate, since te
dearth of blood is greater in the
southeastern Michigan region than
in the Columbus area. The south-
eastern area of Michigan needs 1,200
units of blood every day.
The University student unit col-
lection was only 2,036 units, 254
units less than Blood Battle organ-
izers expected.
In the residence hall competition,
the Mosher half of Mosher-Jordan
was declared the winner with 16.4
percent of the students in the hall
donating blood. Huber House in
South Quad came in a close second.
Despite the competition, Re-
gional Red Cross Representative to
the University Neal Fry asserts that
no losers exist in the Blood Battle.
"Between the two campuses

6,7lu units of blood (were) col-
lected. There really aren't any losers
in this annual Blood Battle," Fry
said. "The winners are the sick and
injured in the Columbus, Ohio and
the southeastern Michigan region
whose lives were preserved."
Alpha Phi Omega Blood Drive
Co-Chair Katie Leshock attributed
the low student turn-out to nursing
shortages and the current focus on
other student concerns.
"The Red Cross expectancies for
the nurses were way too high. They
didn't realize just how many first-
time donors we had," Leshock said.
The Nursing Union in south-
eastern Michigan had provided ap-
proximately one nurse for every 24
students.
