Wolverines seek continueddoiminance of Illinois

Memories..Nostalgia. Cream puff
While most people equate these
images with homecoming football
games, tomorrow's contest between
No. 13 Michigan and Illinois might
be long on the memories and short on
As the Illini face the Wolverines
(2-1 Big Ten, 4-2 overall) on the road
GAZA CITY, Occupied Gaza
Strip (AP) - Assad Saftawi's 12-
year-old son ran out of the schoolyard
and up to his father's car, when he
noticed three masked gunmen on the
other side. One fired a 9mm pistol and
the bullet hit Saftawi just below the
0 "He turned to talk to them, but
they shot again," said Ali Saftawi.
The murder yesterday of Saftawi,
a close associate of PLO leader Yasser
Arafat, was the third assassination of
a moderate Palestinian since the Is-
rael-PLO accord was signed in Wash-
ington on Sept. 13.
It threatened to ignite a vicious
cycle of killings and reprisals among
'alestinians and posed a challenge to
the PLO leader, who must exert con-
trol over Gaza before Israel's army
starts withdrawing on Dec. 13.
Armed members of the under-
ground Fatah Hawks appeared at
Saftawi's three-story house after the
slaying and fired several shots in the
air as a salute to the fallen Palestinian
"I will revenge my father's death,
*will kill the assassins of my father,"
said another son, Ziad, 27, a bearded
activist with the militant group Is-
"We are on the brink of a serious
degeneration of the situation," Hanan
Ashrawi, spokesperson for the Pales-
tinian peace talks delegation, told The
Associated Press. Others, like Gaza
PLO official Zakariya al-Agha, pre-
*icted "civil war."

for the second straight year, they ap-
pear to be the type of team that has
been Michigan's nemesis thus far this
season. True, Illinois has won only
two of their six games this season, but
both have been against Big Ten oppo-
nents, leaving them with the same 2-
1 conference record as the Wolver-
In addition, Illinois is surging,
coming off a 49-3 thumping of Iowa
in the Hawkeyes' homecoming game
last weekend. Illini coach Lou Tepper
said he knows that another strong
performance could do wonders for
"A victory over Michigan would
immediately get us back into the Big
Ten conference race," Tepper said.
Of course, the same refrain has
been coming from the Wolverine
coaching staff during the past week.
After an emotional victory over Penn
State, Michigan coach Gary Moeller
sees his team as being at a pivotal
crossroad of its own.
"If we want to go to the Rose
Bowl, in my opinion, we can't afford
to lose another ball game," Moeller
said. "We're halfway through the sea-
son and the key now is to maintain our
character and spirit. We made a big
step in the right direction against Penn
State. The question is can we main-
If the Wolverines need any addi-
tional motivation from this game, they
need look no further than last season's
battle. Just in case Michigan fans have
forgotten this little bit of nostalgia, it
was the 28-point underdog Illini who
shocked the Wolverines with a 22-22
tie, upsetting their bid for a second
straight unblemished Big Ten season.
Moeller, however, needs no reminder
of this unpleasant memory.

Regents discuss political correctness, free speech issues
By NATE HURLEY
DAILY STAFF REPORTER
The idea of political correctness
humbly began as an inside joke among
liberals. Now it is a dumping ground
for issues as widespread as free speech
and multiculturalism, hate speech and
These issues come to a head every
day in classes across campus, con-
cluded the University Board of Re-
gents at a discussion yesterday.
Law Dean Lee Bollinger, one of
five panelists at the discussion, illus-
trated how issues of political correct-
ness affect him in his job.
If a law professor asked students
what they would do in a case in which
a woman was raped, said she enjoyed
it but later decided to prosecute, many
students in the class may be offended
and come to Bollinger for help.
He asked the regents and panelists
how he should handle the situation.
Bollinger sought to direct the con-
versation into a discussion about spe-
cific issues. "Political correctness is a
capture word for three quite distinct
problems - speech codes, curricu-
lum and campus climate."
The two-hour meeting evolved
into a broad-based look at political
correctness at the University.
Philosophy Prof. Elizabeth Ander-
son said some students' exercise of
free speech could inhibit others' con-
tributions to a discussion.
"If you just let anything be said,
there are going to be some people's
speech that will be chilled," she
She suggested professors can help
by playing "devil's advocate" to bring
unpopular ideas to the discussion.
Regents Deane Baker (R-Ann
Arbor) and Shirley McFee (R-Battle
Creek) spoke against speech codes to
direct the terms of classroom debate.
McFee said a conduct code is not
