Buchanan said in a Manchester news
conference.
Buchanan's message seems to be
winning over some voters. The most
receit Boston Globe tracking poll
has Bush's percentage down to 53,
with Buchanan's 29 percent and 11
percent still undecided. The same
polls show that, despite Bush's
whirlwind tour of the state over the
weekend, his popularity and job ap-
proval ratings also declined.
In Democratic polls, Tsongas has
maintained his strong lead over his
nearest competitor. Tsongas leads
with 32 percent of likely voters, fol-
lowed by Clinton with 20 percent,
Harkin and Kerrey almost neck-and-
neck at 12 and 11 percent respec-
tively, and Brown with 5 percent.
New- York Gov. Mario Cuomo's
name was volunteered by 6 percent
of the participants, up from 4 per-
cent the day before.

Hours after the attack that killed
Sheik Abbas Musawi, Muslim mili-
tants fired rockets into Israeli-held
territory in south Lebanon, and con-
tinued the strikes into yesterday
morning. No damage or casualties
were reported.
Later, mourners at a funeral pro-
cession for Musawi in Beirut's
southern slums screamed hatred and
anger at the United States and Israel.
About 50,000 men marched through
the southern slums carrying on their
shoulders the wooden coffins of
Musawi and his wife and son, killed
along with him.
"Death to America!" and "Death
to Israel!" chanted some of the
mourners. "You shall be avenged!"
In Israel, the army chief of staff
said the army was ready to strike
back hard if Hezbollah militiamen
attacked Israeli territory.
"We are deployed defensively as

well as offensively to react," Lt.
Gen. Ehud Barak said on army radio.
"If there will not be calm ... the
saboteurs of the calm will have to
pay a very high price."
Northern Israeli towns were told
to be on guard against infiltration at-
tacks, and police set up roadblocks

tively little progress of senior
women faculty over time and this
(policy) is intended to improve that."
University President James
Duderstadt indicated that the policy
is part of a plan to produce gender
equity. He said, "It's part of a
broader strategy to build representa-
tion of women in the highest ranks
of the faculty, administration, and
Uniyersity. It will focus on parts of
the University that we believe
should have a strong increase of
women."
Whitaker guessed that the new
policy will cost the University from
$200,000 to $500,000 annually for
the next three years. The money will
come from central funds.

"Before we'd allocate (money) to
other purposes, we'd allot it to this,"
he said. "That way it's not coming
off on any budget, but off the top."
Duderstadt said that despite bud-
get concerns, the new policy will be
funded. "Priorities are priorities.
There's no magical new source of
money in this place, and there hasn't
been for a decade.... This will be
elevated to enough of a priority that
we do it," Duderstadt said.
While officials cannot speculate
whether the new policy will succeed,
they do envision a few stumbling
blocks, including the need to entice
candidates away from other posi-
tions and attempting to account for
spouses.
"Many, many women academics
are married to male academics.
Often you have to work out ways for

their spouses to get placed,"
Rasmussen said.
Whitaker sees the dearth of
women in many fields as another
obstacle. "I don't know how effec-
tive (the policy's) going to be be-
cause the pick (of women candi-
dates) is really slender in some de-
partments," Whitaker said.
Rasmussen disagreed. "There are
really quite a number of women at
the professional level. ... The prob-
lem has been in upward mobility,"
she said.
Political Science Department
Chair Arlene Saxonhouse does not
believe her unit will have a problem
locating women and added that the
new policy should simply broaden
searches.
"It just means that looking at the
pool of candidates, we can look at

south Lebanon.
The suggested reinforcements
were meant for monitoring supply
and communications routes of Shiite
militants between forward positions
and concentrations to the north.
Also, their presence would help
check quickly any sectarian tensions
that might be kindled by
developments.
A general protest strike called by
Hezbollah closed schools, shops and
businesses in Muslim areas in the
south and in Beirut. Life was normal
in Lebanon's Christian regions.
The Israeli attacks Sunday on the
Palestinian refugee camps were in
apparent retaliation for an Arab raid
on an army camp in Israel early
Saturday.

Panthers, claimed responsibility, in a

senior women in a way we couldn't
in the past," she said.
Saxonhouse added that senior
women are important to have as role
models. "(Increasing the number of
women) changes the whole tone of
the department," she said. "(Political
science) was a traditionally very
male discipline - interest in ques-
tions of power."
Rasmussen agreed that it is im-
portant for there to be women to
serve as role models in order to pre-
vent isolating students and other
faculty members. "It's a message of
exclusion and I'm not saying that's
an intentional message, but it it's be-
ing received, it's one that has
power," she said.

Russia had kept up its payments in

Baker and Yeltsin agreed on a
series of measures to help Russia
dismantle its nuclear weapons and
provide work for the scientists who
built the nuclear weapons of the
Cold War. The measures would use
the $400 million appropriated by
Congress last year to help destroy
the former Soviet nuclear might.

ease, Hollenshead said.
"Increasing the number of
women would by definition increase
the diversity of senior faculty," she
added. "Diversity of the faculty in
terms of race and gender as well as
disciplines brings a greater array of
perspectives as they conduct re-
search or scholarship in various
fields. From an intellectual point of
view, having a diverse faculty pro-
vides an intellectual richness as
well."

dened and be poised to take more

in which Germany would also take

added.

commented.
However, Saxonhouse said her
department will not distinguish be-
tween male and female candidates
when assessing qualifications for a
position.
"I wouldn't make any distinc-
tions there. We have very hard stan-
dards. It's always difficult to find
male or female faculty in this de-
partment," she said. "When you
bring somebody tenured, you bring
somebody for life. The question is
whether there are enough senior
candidates that we want."

facility, including its site, the official
said.
Yeltsin said the United States
also agreed to provide money to
build a facility for the destruction of
the former Soviet chemical weapons
arsenal.
Baker promised Yeltsin the
United States would send 25 secure
rail cars for transporting nuclear
warheads to storage sites, and 250
special containers for carrying other
components of the weapons, the
official said.

New study finds ollUti*on JEFFRIES

rising to alarming levels

GRAND RAPIDS (AP) -
Animal waste and farm chemicals
are washing into waterways in the
western Lower Peninsula, raising
pollution to alarming levels,
according to a new study.
Agriculture plays a major role in
surface water pollution in Ottawa,
Muskegon and Oceana counties, the
study by the West Michigan
Shoreline Regional Development
Commission and Grand Valley State
University concluded.
The study estimated agricultural
fertilizers and animal wastes have

damaged half of the 40 watersheds
in the three counties. Rain and
melting snow washes the wastes and
chemicals from the soil into
waterways.
The study was the first attempt to
assess the impact of farming on wa-
ter pollution in the area. Only eight
watersheds avoided the damage, the
study said.
Researchers did not test the water
quality in each of the rivers and
streams, but based their conclusions
on findings in three watersheds in-
stead

"As a Roman Catholic
Institution, we strive toward healing
and reconciliation and are
committed to valuing and fostering
the goals of civility, harmony and
mutual respect among all members
of this community," Peterson said in
the statement.
Though Peterson banned Jeffries
from speaking, Jeffries was wel-
comed to Seton Hall's Black History
Month dinner by its Black Student
Union to share comments - as long
as he was not the featured speaker,
Seton Hall Media Coordinator
Elinor Walker said.
The decisions by CUNY to put
Jeffries on probation and Seton Hall
to ban Jeffries have raised questions
about the lines between the freedom
of speech and hate speech.
Walker said people of many
ethnicities protested the ban against
Jeffries. "The protesters were evenly
divided at the rally, and said free-

dom of speech was the issue - it
was not a racial issue at all," Walker
said.
Last week, Jeffries spoke at
Harvard University, presenting
students with this dilemma.
"The university's position was
they were not going to take a
position against Leonard Jeffries.
They felt it was the right of the
Black Students Association to invite
him and the right of students to
protest him," said Steve Frank, a
reporter for the Harvard Crimson.
Frank said approximately 800
people listened to Jeffries speak,
including the president of the
college, while 450 members of the
community and the university's
Hillel protested outside.
Before Jeffries visited Seton Hall,
he spoke to a crowd of 500 at a
church in Montclair, N.J. He denied
making racial comments.
"We have no theories of Black
people being superior because of
melanin in our skin, but we do know
that it is not a curse," Jeffries told
the crowd.
