I wanted to help women 'Take Back
the Night,"' Ilg said. "But after dis-
cussing it, I realized the march is a
time for women to do it themselves.
It is not men who have to worry
about walking alone at night."
Cass said, "This is not to say that
men can't play a role. We're not a
big male-bashing group. That is not
what we are all about. We are about
empowerment and carving out a
space for women with men's help."
Ilg said that he became involved
with Take Back the Night because as
a SAPAC volunteer, he was shocked
by the magnitude of the problem of
sexual assault.
"I have only heard of four sexual
assaults on campus this year, yet
three in 10 women will be assaulted.
It is just something you don't hear
about," Ilg said.
"I see the look in my closest
friend's eyes when she wants to go
somewhere, but can't because she
has no one to walk her," Ilg said. "I
want to make it alright for her to do
whatever she wants."
LSA senior Roseanne Wild said
marching in last year's rally was an
empowering experience. "Even
though I went alone, there didn't
seem to be any strangers."

Yeltsin's economic program has
caused prices to soar and "pushed
millions of people into poverty,"
Vorontsov said.
At the start of the session in the
Grand Kremlin Palace, Yeltsin left
his chair, directly under a huge
Russian flag that covers a
Communist-era portrait of Lenin.
Aides said he was attending an im-
portant meeting of Russia's consti-
tutional commission in another wing
of the former czar's palace.

With a slight frown, he sat for

more than an hour as a parade of
deputies denounced soaring prices,
poor medical care, rising crime, re-
liance on foreign aid and the Cabinet
that Yeltsin appointed without leg-
islative approval.
"The last time the formation of a
government was regulated by laws
like ours was under Mussolini, when
fascists came to power in Italy,"
lawmaker Sergei Polozkov said to
rousing applause.
That prompted Yeltsin to stalk
off the platform, while Polozkov
continued speaking to him.
"Boris Nikolayevich, we ask you
to leave the post of prime minister.
You have enough to handle with the
military and other matters," the irate
deputy said.
Yeltsin is prime minister and de-
fense minister as well as president,
but he is under mounting pressure to
give up the extra posts.

sor of the divided PLO.
Wahbeh said he received a cable
from PLO headquarters in Tunis,
capital of Tunisia, saying Arafat
"has only minor bruises. ... He's in
good shape."
Saeed Kamal, the PLO represen-
tative in Cairo, Egypt, said three of
five crewmembers aboard Arafat's
Soviet-built An-26 aircraft were
killed when it went down near a
PLO training camp at Sarra on
Tuesday. Wahbeh said Arafat was
accompanied by 13 bodyguards.
Arafat was flying from Sudan to
Tunis, where he was scheduled to
preside at a meeting of the PLO's
80-member Central Council today.
PLO officials said he was on his
way to Tripoli, Libya's capital, yes-
terday night and would still go to
Tunis for today's meeting.
Bassam Abu-Sharif, Arafat's
chief adviser in Tunis, told AP
Network News that the PLO asked
former President Carter to intercede
with the White House to get U.S.
officials to provide satellite data to
help search for Arafat.
He would not say directly
whether such help was received, but
that the American "good will to-
ward Arafat will definitely help the
peace process."
U.S. officials said they were still
considering Carter's request when

Arafat was found. "We were not in-
volved in any effort to help locate
the plane," said Margaret Tutwiler,
spokesperson for the State
Any U.S. help for the PLO would
stir controversy with Israel, which
considers the PLO a terror group
dedicated to the Jewish state's de-
The United States long banned
official contacts with the PLO, but
began a dialogue in late 1988 on
grounds Arafat had accepted Israel's
right to exist. Contacts were severed
again after Arab terrorists attacked
an Israeli beach in June 1990.
Hanan Ashrawi, spokesperson for
Palestinians during peace negotia-
tions with Israel, also asked for U.S.
help in a telephone call to Edward P.
Djerejian, assistant secretary of state
for the Near East, U.S. officials said.
He asked the U.S. embassies in
Cairo and Tunis to provide assis-
tance, they said.
Capt. Adnan Beleidy of the
Palestine Liberation Army, the
PLO's military arm, said in Tripoli
that a Libyan air force plane found
the survivors at dawn near Sarra,
about 900 miles southeast of Libya's
Arab east Jerusalem exploded in
celebration yesterday at news that
Arafat was alive. Thousands of
Palestinians hugged, shouted and
clapped in the streets. One avenue
was almost carpeted with candy
thrown in jubilation.
