.Saddam:

chance of war

is

'50-50'

Associated Press
Saddam Hussein's armies rattled
nerves around the Persian Gulf yes-
terday with the first test of surface-
to-surface missiles since the inva-
sion of Kuwait. The Iraqi president
said the chances of war in the region
stand at about "50-50."
In Washington, Secretary of State

James Baker said the United States
would not attack Iraq - provided
Iraqi troops are withdrawn from
Kuwait and foreign hostages are
fieed.
Iraq, meanwhile, told the Soviet
Union that it could lose its influence
in the Arab world if it sent troops to
the Persian Gulf. This comment was

apparently in response to a warning
from Soviet Foreign Minister Ed-
uward Shevardnadze, who said last
week Moscow would send in soldiers
if Soviet citizens trapped in Iraq were
harmed.
The official Iraqi News agency
quoted an Iraqi Foreign Ministry
spokesperson as saying Shevardnadze

"seems to be looking for a pretext to
send troops to the region."
More than 350,000 troops are in
the Persian Gulf as part of the U.S.-
led multinational force. American
troops, now numbering more than
240,000, are expected to swell to
around 400,000 by next month.
The U.S. military refused to say

whether the American forces went on
alert yesterday when Iraq launched
surface-to-surface missiles in what
appeared to be test launches.
The missiles were fired - and
landed - in Iraqi territory, U.S. mil-
itary officials in Saudi Arabia said in
a statement. Officials refused to say
how the missiles were detected.

The forces in Saudi Arabia were
reported to have been put on "yellow
alert" - one category below full
combat alert - last week, after the
U.N. Security Council approved a
resolution authorizing use of force
against Iraq if it does not withdraw
from Kuwait by Jan. 15.

Two squatters ordered
out of William St. home

by Donna Woodwell
Daily City Reporter
Two homeless squatters have no
legal right to occupy a city-owned
house on William St.,15th District
Court Judge Pieter Thomassen ruled
Friday.
"There is no indication that the
defendant had lawful title" to the
property, Thomassen said. The oc-
cupants have until Dec.10 to move
out of the house before city officials
ask the police to remove them from
the property.
The house, located at 116 W.
William, is one of three houses

which city council has debated re-
placing with a parking structure for
more than two and a half years.
The house is one of two homes

appeal the eviction
"We weren't pleased, but it was
not an unusual ruling ... homeless
people have no rights. The city ad-
ministration doesn't want poor peo-

said.
Before the city bought the house,
HAC had permission from the pre-
vious owner to use the property,
along with a neighboring house at
337 S. Ashley, for low-cost hous-
ing, Schneider said.
However, Chief Assistant City
Attorney John Van Loon said HAC
"members broke into the house.
Since they weren't thrown out they
decided they had a legal right to oc-

American composer Aaron
Copland dies of stroke at age 90

NORTH TARRYTOWN, N.Y.
(AP) - Aaron Copland, the pio-
neering American composer who
used folk songs and jazz in writing
plainspoken classics such as
"Appalachian Spring," "Rodeo," and
"Billy the Kid," died Sunday in
Phelps Memorial Hospital in
Westchester. He was 90.
Copland, who lived in Peekskill,
0 N.Y., had two strokes and res-
piratory problems and died from
complications stemming from them,
according to his lawyer, Ellis
Freedman, who announced his death.
Admired by colleagues as the
"dean of American music," Copland
-was a major force in gaining interna-
tional recognition for the nation's
20th century composers. His honors
included a Pulitzer Prize, a Presiden-
tial Medal of Freedom, the Guggen-
heim Foundation's first music fel-

melody played by clarinet and fol-
lowed by five variations.
His ballets "Billy the Kid" and
"Rodeo" also combined cowboy
tunes and folk songs with original
themes.
Despite his success, Copland
stopped composing after 1967,
spending much of his time at his
home in Peekskill, N.Y., and direct-
ing recordings of his works.
Born Nov. 14, 1900, Copland
was the youngest of five children.
His parents, immigrants from East-
ern Europe, owned a neighborhood
department store in the New York
City borough of Brooklyn..
Copland's maternal grandfather,
Aaron Mittenthal, a Yiddish Yankee
peddler, moved to Dallas and opened
a dry goods store there in the 1870s.
