One American, several Arabs may be
freed in Mideast hostage swap today
BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) -
Shiite Muslim kidnappers are ex-
pected to release an American
hostage by this afternoon and Israel
is to free some Arab prisoners in re-
sponse, the United Nations said yes-
The announcement from the U.N.
information center in Beirut did not
say which of the five American cap-
tives in Lebanon would be freed or
where. U.N. officials refused to
elaborate on the brief statement.
The U.N. announcement came af-
ter Israel said on Saturday that it
had received solid information that
one of its five missing military per-
sonnel in Lebanon was dead, and
hinted it would free more Arab
The hostage-holders are demand-
ing that Israel free all Arab prison-
ers in exchange for the release of the
hostages, but Israel has said it first
must know the status of its missing
Lebanese state television quoted
unidentified sources as saying the
hostage to be freed would be either
Cicippio or Turner.
Cicippio, of Norristown, Pa.,
was kidnapped from American
University on Sept. 12, 1986.
Turner, of Boise, Idaho, was ab-
ducted on Jan. 24, 1987.
Last week, the group holding
Turner and Steen invited Turner's
Lebanese wife to come to Beirut
with her daughter Joanne to visit
him for an hour under U.N. auspices.
That fueled speculation that Turner
would be released.
In Norristown, a suburb of
Philadelphia, Cicippio's brother,
Thomas, said before the Lebanese
television report that he was happy
about the U.N. announcement.
"That's the first time we've
heard that kind of news from the
U.N.," he said. "I was really sur-
prised. This one here has got to be
He added, "It's a case of wait and
The United Nations said the ex-
pected release was the outcome of an
"intensive stage" of negotiations
between U.N. Secretary-General
Javier Perez de Cuellar's special en-
voy, Giandomenico Picco, and a
hostage negotiator identified only
as Abu Abdullah.
The pro-Iranian Hezbollah, or
Party of God, a fundamentalist
Shiite Muslim group, is believed to
be the umbrella for various groups
holding Western hostages.
The U.N. statement said further
efforts would be needed to resolve
the hostage problem once and for

the Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion would not attend.
In the end, the ministers decided
to take a chance.
"Why should we block the way
for any one of our children or citi-
zens, to tell them there is no chance
for peace," said Interior Minister
Arye Deri. "This is the meaning of a

of assurances negotiated over sev-
eral months guarantees American
support for Israel's demand that no
Palestinian state be created.
The government has repeatedly
said it will not trade land for peace,
as demanded by Palestinians.
Health Minister Ehud Olmert, a
close ally of Shamir, said he shared
concerns that Israel may be pres-
sured to give back territory. But he
said Israel could best defend its
right to the land by going to the
Olmert also minimized concerns
that Israel was not shown a list of
14 Palestinians who will attend the
conference to ensure that none had
formal ties to the PLO.

terrorist group and will not deal

that the PLO will not take part,
Olmert said, but Israel could not
stop the delegates from consulting
"The prime minister has said:
What can we do? We cannot chase
the PLO off the face of the earth.
They exist and if someone wants
they can talk to them," Olmert said.
At the other end of the spectrum,
Housing Minister Ariel Sharon, the
most outspoken conference oppo-
nent in Shamir's Likud bloc, said the
Cabinet was not holding firmly to
Israel's refusal to cede occupied
land to the Arabs.
"We capitulated," he said. "We
did not stick to any of our demands.
Not a thing remains of Israel's posi-
tions and principles."
Sharon said the government

McFee said, "All of us need this
policy. The people who experience
sexual harassment actively, and the
people who are perpetuating sex ha-
rassment actively, ... may be doing
so without knowing it is offensive
to someone in the office."
At Thursday's portion of the
meeting, some regents voiced con-
cern that the policy favored the
complainant over the accused.
Policy framers General Counsel
Elsa Cole and Assistant to the
Provost Kay Dawson, who revised
the policy Thursday night to meet
regental requests, added a statement
protecting the accused against false
It now states: "A person who
knowingly and intentionally files a
false complaint under this policy is
subject to University discipline."
Although students may use this
policy to file a complaint against a
faculty or staff member who they
feel is harassing them, the policy
does not cover student-to-student
sexual harassment complaints.
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann
Arbor) criticized this aspect of the
policy and said he favored one um-
rassment complaints are currently
filed under an 1988 interim policy
on discriminatory conduct.
"I think we need a policy for a
student made part of an overall pol-
icy that separates it from... (the in-
terim policy on discriminatory con-
duct)," he said. "If we're going to
handle this issue let's handle it in a
... sensitive way. Let's have it a part
of an overall policy for that rea-
son," Baker said.
Cole said the reason the policy
does not cover student-to-student
complaints is that there are few fed-
eral guidelines to work with in
framing a student-to-student ha-
"We do in employment area have
a well developed body of cases... to
guide us in that area. We don't ...
have that in a student-to-student
situation" Cole said. "This we
know would stand court scrutiny
Baker also took this opportunity
to criticize the interim policy.
"We were told (the policy)
would be withdrawn in a few
months and it's been two to three
years. I think what is building here
is a substantial dissatisfaction of
this policy," Baker said.
"In the foreseeable future I may
bring a motion to end the policy.
This is a matter of substantial con-
troversy and it may become more
controversial," he added.

Into The Streets Challenge
to all U of M Students:
We live in a world fragmented by social
injustice. Our societal problems are serious
and complex, but socialjustice begins with a
single decision - to take action.
We challenge ourselves to decide - go Into the
Streets, not just for a day, but for a lifetime.
We must define and continually renew
ourselves as thoughtful, informed and
compassionate human beings.
We believe that the solution to our
problems can be found in the strengths,
talents, and experiences of each individual.
We must strive to create communities that
listen to and value all voices. Our diversity is
our greatest strength.
Believing each individual has something to
contribute to unifying the world in which we
must live. I will...

"How in the world can members
of Congress really know and under-
stand the burden it puts on America
when it doesn't even have to live
under the law itself?" Grassley
His idea hasn't been popular in
Congress, which has exempted it-
self from a long list of other laws,
including the Freedom of
Information Act, the Equal
Employment Opportunity Act, the
Social Security Act and the govern-
ment ethics act.
Barring a reversal of course, em-
ployees of members of Congress
have little recourse if they are vic-
tims of the type of sexual harass-
ment that Anita Hill alleged
against Supreme Court nominee
There are House and Senate rules
against discrimination, which in-
cludes sexual harassment. But if not
resolved by the member, a worker
can turn only to the Senate Ethics
Committee or House Office of Fair
Employment Practices, said Jean
Dugan, chairperson of the Capitol
Hill Women's Political Caucus.
Her organization has drafted a
sexual harassment policy statement
and urged each House and Senate
member to adopt it. The policy de-
fines sexual harassment, cites some
examples, and pledges "swift and
serious attention to any complaint
of sexual harassment."
The hope, Dugan said, is that
adoption of the policy will prompt
any member of Congress to deal
forcefully with sex harassers - and
that violations would be viewed
more strongly by the appropriate
House or Senate panel.
Thirty-four senators have
adopted that policy or one similar
- three since the Thomas allega-
tions surfaced, she said. The latest to
adopt the policy are Democrats Jeff
Bingaman of New Mexico, Tom
Daschle of South Dakota and John
Kerry of Massachusetts.

It was a further climb toward
national prominence for Duke, who
serves in the Legislature as a pop-
ulist Republican and warns against
the "welfare underclass," but says
he has rejected his racist past as a
member of the Ku Klux Klan.
With 93 percent of precincts re-
porting, Edwards led with 480,299
votes or 34 percent, Duke had
452,827 votes or 32 percent, and
Roemer trailed with 387,778 votes
or 27 percent. Earlier the lead had
flip-flopped among all three until
Roemer gradually fell too far be-
hind to catch the front-runners.
