U.S. grants entry to IRA
leader for peace meeting
WASHINGTON (AP) - The
United States granted a limited visa
yesterday to Gerry Adams, president
of Sinn Fein, the political wing of the
Irish Republican Army.
The decision, announced by the
White House, reverses a policy of
barring Adams from the country be-
cause of his association with the IRA.
The White House said Attorney
General Janet Reno had issued a
"waiver to his ineligibility" to allow
Adams to attend a peace conference
in New York. This was at the recom-
mendation of Secretary of State War-
Adams has been turned down in
eight previous requests for visas, and
the decision to allow him into the
country reflects recent progress in
negotiations to end decades of civil
strife in Northern Ireland.
"The president supports this deci-
sion and believes it will help advance
the cause of peace in Northern Ire-
land," said a White House statement.
Adams, who is to address a meet-
ing in New York on Tuesday, will be
allowed to stay in the United States
only 48 hours, and must stay within
25 miles of the Waldorf-Astoria hotel
where the conference is being held.
He also is prohibited from engag-
ing in any direct or indirect fund-
Officials of the State Department,
the National Security Council and the
Justice Department met Saturday and
Sunday to discuss Adams' case, ac-
cording to a source close to the dis-
In its initial response to Adams'
visa request, the administration said
Adams must first renounce violence.
Sinn Fein is the legal political ally of
the outlawed paramilitary group.
made him lie
WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate
hopeful Oliver North blamed Presi-
dent Reagan yesterday for the lies he*
told in the Iran-Contra scandal.
North acknowledged during an
appearance on CBS News' "Face the
Nation" that he had lied to members
of a House Intelligence committee.
North denied to lawmakers that he
was assisting the rebels. In fact, he
was running an operation to keep the
Contras supplied with weapons. s
"I was asked questions that I had
been told from the president of the*
United States could never be revealed,
OK?" North said in explaining..
"Who made you do it?" North
was asked by host Bob Schieffer.
"Well, the president of the United
States," North replied. He noted that
Reagan had requested money for the
Contras from Saudi Arabian leaders.

Republican Dick Chrysler, of
Brighton, already planned to chal-
lenge Carr again in the 8th District.
That district covers Ingham and
Livingston counties and parts of
Genesee, Shiawassee, Oakland, and
Chrysler, a self-made millionaire,
outspent Carr $1.8 million to $1.4
million in 1992andcame within 3,611
votes of beating him (135,517-
"This is a totally different race, I
would maintain," Byrum said. "I have
no grandiose dreams that I'm going to
outspend Dick Chrysler. I'll bejudged
in terms of what I've done."
Of course, that's only if Carr en-
ters the Democratic Senate primary.
The field for that already includes
Macomb County Prosecutor Carl
Marlinga, former U.S. Rep. Bill
Brodhead, and state Sen. Lana Pol-
lack, of Ann Arbor.
Pollack admitted last week that
she was relieved to hear Blanchard
wouldn't be getting into the race. "It
could open up the race for more
people," she said. "This is a level
playing field by and large. No one
will dominate the primary over the
next few weeks."
Byrum, who still works at her
family's hardware store on weekends,
spoke for all incumbents weighing
the odds of giving up their current
seat to take a crack at a higher office.
"There's just such a tremendous
opportunity to do some things on a
national level that would never be
available at the state Senate," she
"It's a gutsy call. I'm either going
to go to the U.S. House or back to the

VOLUNTEERS SOUGHT FOR
COLD SORE TREATMENT STUDY
The University Health Service seeks volunteers to participate in a medical
study evaluating an experimental antiviral cream as a treatment for cold
sores (herpes labialis).
To be considered for this study, candidates must:
- be 18 years of age or older and in good health
- have a history of recurrent cold sores
- be willing to receive treatment and participate in evaluations
Involvement in the study will require an initial screening exam and clinic
evaluations on days 1, 2, 3, 5 and 7 of the participant's next cold sore
outbreak. Treatment will continue for five days.
There is no cost to patients accepted into the study. All examinations,
laboratory tests and study treatment drug will be free of charge.
A stipend of $100 will be paid to individuals who complete the study.
For more information,
please call Sally Siano at 763-6880.
Users of the Michigan Terminal
System (MTS), the University's larg-
est e-mail system, have noted that
things are moving significantly slower
in recent months. Users complain that
signing on and off or just typing a
messagetakes longer compared to the
quick responses of last year.
The Information Technology Di-
vision (ITD) attributes the slower
speed to a rapid increase in the num-
ber of MTS users. Several times this
year, the system has reached 100 per-
cent of its processor capacity.
Also, MTS can handle a finite
number of users. When the system
reaches its limit, users seethe prompt,
"All interactive ports are busy." Sim-
ply put, the MTS processor can't lis-
ten to any more people.
While ITD searches for ways to
distribute processor time more effi-
ciently, MTS users can get a faster
response by signing on at non-peak
hours. ITD's Information Technol-
ogy Digest reports use is greatest at
about 11:30 a.m. and again at 2:30
p.m. Evenings and early mornings are
the best times to sign on if users are
looking for a faster response.
UPCOMING ITD CLASSES
Several times a week, ITD offers
computing classes free of charge for
University staff and students. Classes
cover topics such as e-mail, network-
ing, telecommunications and use of
applications such as Microsoft Word,
Excel and other popular programs.
This week's classes include "Win-
dows Next Step," "Intro to UNIX"
and "What is the Internet?"

tion, or to register for a class.

STARING AT HAIR
Assistant Dermatology Prof.
Bruce Nelson decided to take a closer
look at transplanted hair - a much
Nelson used an electron tunneling
microscope, capable of magnifying
objects 400,000 times, to look at trans-
planted follicles. Transplanted hair is
often lusterless and curly for a time
after the procedure, and that can be
surprising to patients who formerly
had straight, shiny hair.
Hair transplants are most com-
monly performed on balding men.
Hair is taken from a part of the scalp
(commonly from the back of the scalp)
and replanted elsewhere on the head,
Nelson discovered transplanted
follicles undergo some trauma, and
tend to grow hair unevenly foi-up to a
year. But the condition is not perma-
nent, and hair looks healthier as the
follicle adjusts to its new locale.

MORE MB FOR YOUR
ITD has decided to expand the
size of Institutional File System (IFS)
home directories from 3 to'5 mega
bytes. This was effective Jan. 1.
Users of campus computing sites
can create a home directory by choos-

server. A home directory allows users
to save files on the University server.
This lets users create a file at any

at another without having to deal with
