IRAQ
Continued from page 1
destruction of mustard and nerve gas
at the Muthanna complex north of
Baghdad, said American team leader
Paul Brough.
The team, which had been kept
out of Iraq for several weeks, is act-
ing under a Gulf War cease-fire
provision requiring Iraq to dismantle
weapons of mass destruction.
Iraqi officials claimed a U.S.
cruise missile that struck outside the
Al-Rashid Hotel on Jan. 17, killing
two people, was a deliberate attack.
Pentagon officials say the missile
was one of 45 aimed at a suburban
factory involved in nuclear weapons
work and was knocked off course by
anti-aircraft fire.
Hundreds of Jordanians, in-
cluding politicians, union leaders
and human rights activists, marched
through the streets of Amman cheer-

ing Saddam and chanting anti-
American slogans. Many Arabs are
criticizing the West for being
harsher on Iraqis than others who ig-
nore U.N. resolutions, such as
Israelis and Serbs fighting the
Muslim-led government of Bosnia-
Herzegovina.
The northern no-fly zone, north
of the 36th parallel, was imposed by
the U.S.- led allies in April 1991 to
protect Kurdish rebels from Iraqi at-
tacks. The southern zone, south of
the 32nd parallel, was declared last
August to protect rebellious Shiite
Muslims.
Iraq rejects the zones as an in-
fringement on its sovereignty and
says they are an effort by the West to
partition Iraq.
Clinton has pledged to continue
the policy begun by President Bush
to respond strongly to Iraqi threats to
allied planes in the air exclusion
zones.

'U' searches for third 'Golden Apple'

by Randy Lebowitz
Elementary school students are
not the only ones giving apples to
their teachers.
A coalition of University students
is organizing the third annual
Golden Apple Award, which will be
presented to an outstanding
University professor by Students
Honoring Outstanding Teaching
(SHOUT) and Apple Computers.
All students are eligible to nomi-
nate candidates for the award. The
winning professor will be presented
with a trophy and cash prize, and
given the chance to deliver an
ideal "last lecture" in Rackham

Auditorium.
The "last lecture" is designed to
allow the winning professor the op-
portunity to lecture on any topic of
his or her choice.
"Often the winner is an excellent
teacher who brings to life the mate-
rial and keeps you wanting to hear
more," said LSA senior and SHOUT
Committee Chair Jared Silverman.
Michael Brooks, executive direc-
tor of Hillel and SHOUT advisor,
said the award is an attempt to re-
ward professors using innovative
teaching techniques.
"This is an attempt to celebrate
all that's best about education at the

University," Brooks said.
Last year's recipient and
Associate Professor of English
Ralph Williams said that the caring
must flow accross the generations.
"An outstanding professor is one
with absolute commitment to devel-
oping the best potential without re-
serve at the disposal of the students,"
he said.
Drew Westen, a former
University of Michigan psychology
professor who is now on the faculty
at Harvard University, defined an
outstanding professor as someone
students feel they can learn from and
interact with.

CLINTON

showed how quickly public senti-
ment can turn. Dissatisfaction over
his choice for attorney general, Zoe
Baird, because of her hiring of un-
documented workers for household
chores, snowballed through the
week despite early Democratic and
Republican support for her
nomination.
By Friday, Baird was gone and a
full-fledged damage control opera-
tion was under way as Clinton
sought to extricate himself from the
defeat and remain true to the spirit
of ethics rules he trumpeted during
his campaign.
Clinton sought to explain that he
hadn't had the full story at the time
- somewhat contradicting earlier

statements by aides - suggesting
that loose ends were left hanging in
the rush to get a Cabinet by
Christmas.
In words that uncannily echoed
then-Vice President George Bush's
December 1986 "mistakes were
made" explanation for the Iran-Con-
tra scandal, Clinton's chief
spokesperson, George Stephanopou-
los, told reporters:
"I don't know exactly what hap-
pened or why we missed it, but mis-
takes were made in the transition
process, and the President takes
responsibility for them."
Clinton himself told his Cabinet:
"I think we have an enormous reser-
voir of goodwill out in the country
and a fair amount of elbow room to
face the issues that are before us."

that are ahead of current required
regulations," he said.
Molin said the incinerator's op-
ponents have not acknowledged the
University's research to improve
means of waste disposal.
Christa Williams, facilitator of
Environmental Action Committee at
the University of Michigan, said she
felt the University has not been
promoting community awareness
about the incinerator.
"The University sort of hioes
what's going on. They burn mostly
at night and the incinerator is
labeled as 'Campus Laundry' on the
maps," Williams said.
Molin denied the University was
concealing anything.
GEO

Guild House to further elaborate on
these issues.
Of the four economic issues, a
raise in salary and domestic partner-
ship benefits are the most important
to GEO, Curtiss said.
"Currently, the average TA at the
U-M does not make enough money
to meet living expenses - our salary
proposal is going to address this," he
said. "According to the Office of
Financial Aid, the monthly cost of
living is $839 - the average TA
does not make that much."
In addition to wage increases,
packages put together by several
U.S. universities, as well as a recent
domestic partner ordinance in the
Ann Arbor city code, have made a
domestic partnership clause in
GEO's contract imperative, Curtiss
said.
"(This) issue is a very substantial
commitment to the gay, lesbian, and
RUSH
Continued from page 1
adding that during fall rush the big-
ger houses get more participants, not
only because of their size but be-
cause they are apt to be more
well-known.
In the winter, smaller houses tend
to get more rushees, Romano said,
because students have had more time
to learn about them.
"People really don't know what a
frat is until they get into the houses,"
he added.

Nomination ballots were passed
out last week and can still be ob-
tained at the Campus Information
Center and the UGLi. Brooks said
that after a two week campus-wide
election, the SHOUT committee will
evaluate the nominees and select a
winner.
The Golden Apple Award is
sponsored by campus organizations,
including the Interfraternity Council,
Panhellenic Council, LSA Honors
Program, School of Natural
Resources and Environment, Pilot
Program and the Office of Minority
Affairs.
"Our records are clear, open to
the public, subject to government
regulations and state agencies, and
we are in compliance with all of
these," Molin said.
Williams said DNR fines have
had no effect on the University's be-
havior, citing the school's response
to charges that it burned materials at
too low a temperature.
"They said - for the sake of
worker safety - they wanted the
temperature they burn at lowered
rather than comply with the one
that's there," Williams said.
St. Martin said the facility must
be shut down to achieve progress.
"The University can keep doing
what they're doing, in violation of
their permit, while regulators dance
around them saying, 'Please by bet-
ter. Please be nice."'
bisexual community.... We're really
hoping we can work with (the 9
University) on this issue," Curtiss
said.
He added that the Feb. 1 expira-
tion of the contract does not create
any problems between GEO and the
University. A strike immediately
following that day is unlikely, he
added.
GEO is discussing the possibility
of sending a contract-extension pro-
posal to the regents due to the fact0
that many requests - including the
provision of child and elderly care,
an increase in the number of TAs of
color and payment of TAs for edu-
cation-training sessions - have not
been presented to the University yet.
Since negotiations are proceeding
at a "reasonable pace" it is very
likely that the University will extend
the current contract, Curtiss said.
"We're not making any unrea-
sonable demands and we
haven't accepted any unreasonable
compromises," he added.
Fisher said he is optimistic about
this week's turnout.
"I think (rush is) going to turn out
to be pretty good," he said.
He added that winter rush is ap-
pealing to those people who used the
first few months of classes to find
their way around and have now
decided they want to join a
fraternity.
"I just wanted to see what the frat
system was like before I decided to
rush," LSA first-year student Karl
Schaffer said.
