MOSCOW (AP) - Although
marred by discord over the Pales-
tinians, the Middle East peace effort
took on a broader look yesterday
with an unprecedented meeting be-
tween Israel and the Arabs to ex-
plore the region's future.
Israel has always sought such
multilateral talks as a forum to
start meshing itself with the Arab
world by sharing water resources,
expertise and environmental mea-
Arab participants used the occa-
sion to stress demands that Israel
surrender captured territory. Israeli
Foreign Minister David Levy said he
was delighted by the mere fact that
most of the Arabs came.
"This participation is unprece-
dented and we'll know how to ap-
preciate it," he said. "The term
'peace,' bitherto vague, was stated

President promises
to slow arms output

nouncing changes in America's mil-
itary structure, President Bush said
he will shut down the production
line for the B-2 bomber after 20
planes are built, cancel the small
ICBM program, halt production of
new warheads for sea-based ballis-
tic missiles and stop new produc-
tion of the MX missile.
In addition, he announced a
freeze on purchases of advanced
cruise missiles.
"These are actions we are taking
on our own - because they are the
right thing to do," the president

A White House statement re-
leased with Bush's speech said the
United States will halt production
of W-88 warheads for Trident mis-
siles. That would mark the first
time since 1945 that the United
States has no nuclear weapons in
Bush's proposal for deeper cuts
in nuclear arms would, for the first
time, simultaneously shrink all
three legs of the nation's "triad"
of strategic nuclear weapons: air-
launched missiles and ballistic
missiles on submarines and in un-

derground silos.
It would be the first time the
United States has cut sea-based
strategic nuclear arms.
By asking Yeltsin to agree to
eliminate all land-based ballistic
missiles with multiple warheads,
Bush took aim at the most potent
part of Yeltsin's arsenal: 154 SS-
18 silo-based missiles and 92 SS-24
mobile missiles in Russia, Kaza-
khstan and Ukraine.
Bush will meet with Yeltsin
following a U.N. Security Council
meeting in New York on Friday.

Students give speech mixed reviews


by Barry Cohen
Daily Government Reporter
Student reaction to President
Bush's State of the Union address
varied from commendation to sur-
face-level acceptance to
"A couple of times he addressed
real issues and the real divisiveness.
He did not shovel out the shit,"
said LSA junior Doug Schwahn.
"He played on the middle class
worker who has been damaged,"
said RC senior Loren Shevitz. "He
had good things to say - what he
wanted to do, but not how to do

The consensus was that while
the speech will not necessarily
help Bush's popularity, it
definitely will not hurt it.
But one student, who did not
want to be identified, criticized
Bush for ignoring environmental
issues. "He's been in trouble for
not addressing them during his
term," she added.
"He continues to express ideas
as if he is outside the government.
He says these are the problems and
then sets himself apart, as if he is
not elected and responsible," said

RC junior Matt McDermott. He
added that Bush used the same
technique as President Reagan,
namely pulling the public's

the president's performance. "I
thought that it was the best speech
he ever gave, and I was on the floor
in New Orleans when he gave his
acceptance speech," Slavin said.
Slavin specifically cited his ap-
proval of Bush's proposed capital
gains tax and his tax relief incen-
tives for research and development.
But Dana Miller, president of
College Democrats, said, "I think
that the capital gains tax is not a
solution to the middle class and is

Daily Crime Reporter ers from West and South Quadrangles said the typical University lease that prevents

East Quadrangle staff members said
yesterday that they were told by housing
officials in a meeting Monday that the res-
idence hall is under Drug Enforcement
Agency (DEA) surveillance.
Some parents of East Quad residents
were upset to find drug use apparent in the
dormitory during a visit, Resident
Fellows said. The parents reported this
drug use to the Housing Division and
University President James Duderstadt.
RFs were told Monday night that

DEA about the possibility of drug use in

"We've been targeted by the DEA for
surveillance," said one East Quad RF, who
asked not to be named.

noon, declined to comment on the entire
situation until today. Other administra-

property. Some RFs are claiming that this

According to Ann Arbor Police Sgt.
Michael Zsenyuk, it is not illegal to pos-
sess drug paraphernalia. "There is no ordi-
nance in Ann Arbor against a marijuana
pipe, for example. There isn't a federal one
either that I'm aware of," he said.
However, such items, especially when
there are traces of a drug present, can be
used as evidence against an individual,
Zsenyuk added.
East Quad residents said in a hall meet-

Jud needs
effort vs.
by Jeni Durst
Daily Basketball Writer
For weeks, Michigan State coach
Jud Heathcote has been sizing up
tonight's competition. And he hasn't
liked what he's seen.
When Michigan (3-3 in the Big
Ten, 11-4 overall) and the Spartans
(3-2, 13-2) face off tonight at the
Breslin Center in East Lansing, they
won't be meeting eye to eye.
"The matchups are going to be
difficult for us in terms of size,"
Heathcote said. "We think their in-
side size is a problem for us. Where
we have 6'6", 6'7" inside players,
theirs are 6'9". Yet, I have to think
that maybe our experience, our ma-
turity will give us an advantage over
their youth and talent. I hope I'm

MSA unanimously opposes
interim speech, conduct code

by Jennifer Silverberg
Daily MSA Reporter
Following more than an hour of
discussion, the Michigan Student
Assembly (MSA) unanimously
voted last night to ask the Univer-
sity to abandon its Interim Speech
The assembly then voted to put a
referendum for the "Preservation of
Students' Freedom of Speech" on
the next MSA ballot, which will
ask students to adopt a similar
The assembly's resolution also
endorsed a pending state legislature
bill prohibiting state colleges and
universities from enacting speech
Michigan Rep. Stephen Dresch
(R-Hancock) came to last night's
meeting to address the assembly

about the House Bill 5059 - "The
Michigan Collegiate Speech Protec-
tion Act."
"I came tonight to Ann Arbor
and to this meeting because I see the
responsibility falling on students
- the responsibility to protect the
fundamental freedoms in this insti-
tuion," Dresch said.
The University has enacted a pol-
icy on Discrimination and Discrimi-
natory Harassment twice. The first
policy was struck down as unconsti-
tutional in 1989. The University
then issued its present Interim Pol-
icy on Discrimination and Discrimi-
natory Harassment.
"Ultimately, for better or
worse, you have the responsibility
to defend freedom of speech,"
Dresch said. "You shouldn't have
the responsibility of defending the

University but don't think you can
depend on the administration to do
that for you.
The Student Rights Commission
(SRC) presented a 42-page inves-
tigative report to the assembly that
"concludes that the University of
Michigan should elimate its In-
terim Policy on Discrimination and
Discriminatory Harassment and
should not enact any code that simi-
larly curtails freedom of speech,"
according to an SRC flier.
"It's about time that someone
really defended free speech on this
campus," LSA Rep.~Corey Hill said.
"I'm glad SRC is finally getting
credit that's long overdue."
The SRC's resolution has already
been endorsed by 11 members of the
Michigan House of Representatives.
