warriors, Yasser Arafat and Yitzhak
Rabin, headed yesterday toward a re-
shaping of the Middle East: the launch
of an experiment in peace that will set
the stateless Palestinian people on the
road to independence. r
For Rabin - the general who 25
years ago captured the West Bank and
Gaza Strip, and Arafat - the guerrilla
leader who now hopes to free them from
Israeli rule, their attendance at today's
White house signing of an Israel-PLO
accord on self-rule for Palestinians
marks a moment of hope and trepida-
Along with President Clinton, the
two men will share a stage on the South
Lawn of the White House, facing 3,000
guests - former Presidents Carter and
Bush, dozens of foreign ministers, and
legions of Americans, Arabs and Jews
who have tried to make peace in the
Middle East.
. Millions of tv viewers around the
world who will watch the ceremony
The prospect of the encounter be-
tween Rabin and Arafat, sworn enemies
until three days ago.
They signed a mutual recognition
pact between Israel and the PLO, gener-
ated intense speculation and disbelief
yesterday amid the, frenzied prepara-
tions for the signing.
"An awful lot of taboos are being
broken in the last few days," said Secre-
tary of State Warren Christopher.
The document will likely be signed
byIsraeliForeignMinisterShimon Peres
and Arafat's top aide, Mahmoud Abbas.
White House workers were dusting
off the desk used to ink the 1979 peace
agreement between Israel and Egypt-
the only Arab-Israeli peace ever signed.
On everyone's minds was whether
Rabin and Arafat would shake hands.
Even before Rabin and Arafat set
foot here, there was trouble.
Three Israeli soldiers were killed by
Muslim militants opposed to the ac-
cord, and the thorny dispute over the
future of Jerusalem surfaced.

ND weekend

Despite the intense emotions run-
ning high on both sides of the Michi-
gan-Notre Dame football rivalry, local
police and bar owners reported a rela-
tively peaceful weekend.
The Ann Arbor Police Department
(AAPD) put extra officers on patrol
both Friday and Saturday nights, hop-
ing to nip any violence in the bud and to
avoid repeating events of the Notre
Dame game weekend two years ago,
when police were forced to use teargas
to control crowds after Michigan's vic-
AAPD Sgt. Khurum Sheikh said
home football weekends are always busy
for police, but games against Notre

Dame, Michigan State andOhioState
always attract extra attention.
"Considering the number of
people in town, people were fairly
well behaved," Sheikh said.
Police were called in to shut down
a lot of out-of-hand parties, Sheikh
said - "typical weekend things."
Sheikh said officers on the street
concentrated on stopping individuals
with open containers of alcohol. He
added that, by doing this police hoped
to cut down on the number of drunk
fans roaming the streets who might
be more likely to cause trouble.
Many of those written up for hav-
ing open containers were on the west
side of campus, in the South Univer-

Irish fans: The rivalry was friendly'

The Irish stormed Ann Arbor this weekend.
"Go Irish" signs on every car coming into
town and faces painted with "ND" were enough
to let University students know that the Notre
Dame football team had not come alone.
Ned Andrews drove 437 miles from Hobart
College in New York just to cheer on the Irish.
"The trip was definitely worth it because
Notre Dame won," said Andrews, whose par-
ents are Notre Dame alums. "Sitting with the
Wolverines was hell, but we won so it was
heaven and hell at the same time."
Most Notre Dame fans headed straight for
O'Sullivans, their Irish homebase, for a good
Andrews and his friends went there Friday
night. "It was bonkers," he said. "It's nice to see
that there's a good Irish bar in Ann Arbor."
Only 200 student tickets were available to
Notre Dame students on a lottery basis, but
many came to Ann Arbor just to be here while
the game was going on.

'The trip was definitely worth It because Notre Dame won. Sitting
with the Wolverines was hell, but we won so It was heaven and
hell at the same time.'
- Ned Andrews
son of Notre Dame alums

Notre Dame senior Mike Sabin and seven of
his friends made the three-and-a-half-hour trek
in his green Jeep Cherokee with Irish signs
plastered all over the back without even one
ticket in hand.
'Wejustwanted to be here to cheer our team
to a victory, but we ended up getting two tickets
from ND alumni for only $49," Sabin said. "We
were so psyched that we even did a shot of
whiskey in celebration."
Sabin said the Michigan crowd wasn't very
hostile, but he added that he was surprised by
the presence of the Michigan state troopers.
"It was a terrible thing to bring state police
into the stadium. We were standing enjoying the
game as we always do back at our school, but

the police came and told us we had to sit down,"
Sabin commented, with a cold beer in his hand.
Many Notre Dame fans tailgated outside
Pioneer High School. Fans without tickets found
their way to the bars. Nearly 75 percent of the
crowd watching the game at Scorekeepers was
screaming for the Irish, said Beth Howells, a ND
"People were fired up at the bar, and the
rivalry was basically friendly," Howells said,
wearing her Notre Dame sweatshirt proudly.
The end of the football game signaled the
beginning of one big party for ND fans. Disap-
pointed Michigan fans quickly exited the sta-
dium, but the Irish stayed on to sing and dance in
celebration. Sporting gold helmets, two diehard

Notre Dame fans from Ohio even threw ND T-
shirts into the stands to spread the victory cheer.
Notre Dame senior John Hermanson ex-
plained one of the "rules" of being a fan of the
Fighting Irish.
'We don't allow any nonalcoholic drinks for
24 hours after the game. I even had to brush my
teeth with beer," said Hermanson, who said he
did pass out, but woke up in time for the game.
Notre Dame students agreed that they will
return to South Bend with vivid memories and
many stories for their friends who stayed home.
Sabin, who was walking down the streets of
Ann Arbor with his face painted "Go Irish,"
reports being flashed by two men wearing plaid
skirts and dog collars.
"Lets just say that they weren't wearing any
underwear and they sure let us know," he remi-
His friend and fellow ND senior Craig Chris-
tian added, "Yeah, (Burger King) was very hos-
tile Friday night. My friend Alex almost got in a
fight with a Michigan law student there."

relocates services

Computing resources and T accounts move toU!
The- Computing Resource Center - where many students get their MTS request accounts - is no
longer in the School of Education Building. The North University Building Station, commonly called
NUBS, now houses all CRC services including accounts, uniqnames, and consulting. Officials say the
move will help students find services more easily and cut costs.

Students no longer need to find the
School of Education Building on their
campus map to obtain an electronic mail

access to University computers. .
"For many students, going to the
education building was kind of confus-

tor of planning, marketing and public
relations for the University's Informa-
tion Technology Division (ITD).
Over the summer, the Computing
Resource Center (CRC) moved from
the School of Education Building - at
the corner of East and South University
avenues - to the North University
Building Station (NUBS).

LSA junior John King agreed, "I
think the services are splendid. I usu-
ally come to NUBS or Angell Hall
because they have nicer computers."
In addition to issuing uniqnames
and Michigan Terminal System (MTS)
accounts for e-mail to University stu-
dents and faculty, CRC also provides
computer services. It provides soft-
ware upgrades and disk recovery for
the 1,300 computers at the 14 ITD
campus computing sites.
More computer services are avail-
able for computer users at the other
computing sites.
Uniqnames and MTS accounts are
also available at the lTD Accounts Of-
fice at the Michigan Union Computing
Site (UNYN)andthe Angell Hall Court-
yard Computing Site.
Computer users will also have easier
access to consulting services.
Consultants for the 764-HELP com-

The Black Student Union (BSU)
welcomed students back to campus with
food, music and a general feeling of
friendliness at its second annual picnic,
held yesterday at Palmer Field.
BSU Speaker Alethea Gordon said
the event was intended as a way for
members to get acquainted. She said the
activity was geared especially toward
first-year students.
"This is (first-year students') oppor-
tunity to meet with the executive board
and with other students," Gordon said.
In addition to a picnic lunch, the
event included a performance by the
Omowale African dancers, a Detroit-
based group. ADJ. provided music for

Students should now
go here to get their
request accounts and
uniqnames, and can
work on Macintoshes,
Dells and Sun
Workstations. The site
also has a scanner and
two laser printers.
