The Washington Post
CAP-HAITIEN, Haiti - Hun-
dreds of unarmed Haitian citizens,
emboldened by the firefight between
U.S. Marines and Haitian police Sat-
urday night and the collapse of au-
thority in this city on the northern
coast, stormed police stations and
army barracks yesterday in a sponta-
neous popular revolt. They comman-
deered rifles and ran wildly but joy-
ously through the streets before turn-
ing the weapons over to the U.S.
Marines.
At four police stations, crowds
tore apart offices, throwing arrest
records into the streets and ripping
electrical sockets from the walls.
Many Haitians came to stare at the
station's barren jail cells. One man
donned a military officer's cap and
baton and began a pantomime of a
bullying officer, marching before a
throng of street vendors, hawkers,
revolutionaries and looters.
Last night, Haiti's second-largest
city was without any civilian or Hai-
tian military control after 400 Haitian
military evaporated overnight from
their posts.
Although military helicopters
circled overhead, Marines did not ar-
rive at the Haitian army barracks until
at least an hour after the assault began
yesterday morning.

The citizens' attacks on the police
and army offices followed a short,
fierce and deadly firefight Saturday
night between U.S. Marines and Hai-
tian police that left 10 Haitians dead.
The dead were zipped into green mili-
tary body bags delivered to a hospital
morgue yesterday. The only U.S. ca-
sualty in the firefight was an inter-
preter who was lightly wounded.
President Clinton, in a statement
issued in New York, said, "It must be
clear that U.S. forces are prepared to
respond to hostile action against them
and will do so."
Sen. Sam Nunn (D-Ga.), chair-
man of the Senate Armed Services
Committee, who had traveled to Haiti
a week ago with former President
Jimmy Carter on a last-minute peace
mission, said more confrontations are
inevitable.
"This is the first bad incident we've
had involving, directly, American
troops, but it won't be the last," he
said on NBC-TV's "Meet the Press."
The confrontation between U.S.
soldiers and Haitian police and a grow-
ing series of other incidents has re-
newed doubts about the ill-defined
nature of the American mission in
Haiti. The U.S. military increasingly
finds itself caught between the mili-
tary it is disarming and civilians

'U' denies charges
in Friendly lawsuit

By MICHAEL ROSENBERG
Daily Football Writer
Football is a game of peaks and
valleys and Saturday Michigan
slipped off Mount Everest and landed
in the Dead Sea.
0 The decline was as exhilarating as
it was quick. Twice in a fortnight the
Wolverines played with fire. Two
weeks ago they torched Notre Dame.
Saturday they got burned.
Michigan, fresh off a shocking
26-24 upset of the Fighting Irish,
was beaten by Colorado on a last-
second, 64-yard, it-happens-every-
decade Hail Mary pass from Kordell
tewart to Michael Westbrook. The
pass was tipped out of the hands of

To the average student, this week-
end meant a disheartening defeat in
lichigan Stadium. But to University
officials, it meant halftime of a cam-
paign to raise $1 billion.
This weekend marked the mid-point
of the "Campaign for Michigan," the
University's commitment to raise $1
billion by 1997. Since its kickoff in
1992, the campaign has raised $670
million. Friday and Saturday's mid-
campaign event amounted to a two-day
ep rally, where University officials
wined, dined, educated and entertained
more than 1000 donors and campaign

Michigan safety Chuck Winters by
Colorado's Blake Anderson and
pulled from the air by Wes-tbrook.
The touchdown gave the seventh-
ranked Buffaloes a 27-26 victory
over No. 4 Michigan.
"I have never had a feeling like
this in my life," Westbrook said. "It
was tipped. There was nobody else
around. It was just me and the foot-
ball. All I had to do was catch it."
Stewart's pass was eerily reminis-
cent of Doug Flutie's touchdown
throw to Boston College teammate
Gerard Phelan against Miami in 1984.
That pass, which also measured 64
yards, propelled the Eagles past the
Hurricanes and Flutie toward the

Heisman Trophy.
It remains to be seen whether
Stewart will be similarly acclaimed.
After the game, he was simply over-
whelmed with the events of the final
six seconds.
"It has to be one of the greatest
wins of my career," Stewart said. "The
coach called this so-called play. It
worked."
It was not the first time coach Bill
McCartney sent in that so-called play,
called "Rocket." The Buffalo boss
had called for the bomb at the end of
the first half.
That pass was intercepted. By
Chuck Winters.
"I'm sick," Winters said. "My

belly hurts. It never crossed my mind
that they would do it."
The play is so seldom-used that
nobody in black and gold could de-
cide how often it is practiced or what
Westbrook is supposed to do.
"We practice it once a week,"
coach Bill McCartney said.
"Westbrook's job on that play is to
position himself for when the ball is
tipped."
"I'm supposed to be the (one who
tips it) because I'm the tallest,"
Westbrook said. "(But) we don't prac-
tice it because somebody could get
injured.',

The University issued a formal
denial of a lawsuit that alleges it re-
taliated against a faculty member for
disclosing misspent endowments, in
papers filed in Washtenaw County
Circuit Court last week.
The lawsuit filed in July by
Jonathan Friendly, director of the
Master's Program in Journalism,
claims that his role in prompting an
audit of the communication depart-
ment cost him his three-year contract.
During the last academic year, the
department was audited after allega-
tions that the Harry and Helen F.
Weber, the Howard R. March Profes-
sorship in Journalism and the Howard
R. Marsh Center for the Study of
Journalistic Performance endow-
ments were being misspent.
In his suit, Friendly, a former re-
porter and city desk editor for The
New York Times, claims that LSA
Dean Edie N. Goldenberg and then-

communication department chair L.
Rowell Huesmann "unilaterally im-
posed a one-year contract containing
less desirable terms and conditions"
in retaliation for Friendly's role in the
prompting the audit.
The suit further claims the defen-
dants - the University, Goldenberg
and Huesmann - violated the Michi-
gan Whistleblower Protection Act by
refusing to renew Friendly's contract
for three years.
The audit, released in June, found
the department had misspent funds
from the endowments.
In an Aug. 30, 1991 letter, an
attorney for Wesley Maurer Sr., who
served as chair of the University's
former journalism department, raised
concerns about the use of the Weber
endowment. Maurer encouraged his
friends, the Webers, to establish an
endowment to support internships in
journalism.

Jones tells of
love for 'U'
By MELISSA ROSE BERNARDO
Daily Staff Reporter
James Earl Jones does not donate
his hard-earned money to the Univer-
sity; instead, he donates something
infinitely more valuable and immea-
surable - his time.
Now an accomplished actor and a
household voice, the 1955 graduate
('71 honorary Ph.D. recipient) returns
with some regularity to his alma mater
and home state of Michigan. And he
calls the University "a place that I
hope to support the rest of my life."
"In service," he adds quickly.
"(Michigan) is a state I love, a
state I wish I could make my living in.
I wish it offered me the same kind of
opportunities as New York or Los
Angeles did, in terms of what I do -
acting," he said.

LOS ANGELES - A beautiful
young mother and a handsome young
man are found stabbed to death on a
moonlit night in June. There are bloody
footprints, a leather glove, a blue-knit
cap and a white dog with bloody paws
howling into the night. There's a limo
driver, a houseguest, airline tickets to
Chicago and an ex-husband - a foot-
ball legend and American idol who's
been charged in the murders.

He says he "absolutely one-hun-
dred percent" didn't kill his ex-wife,
Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend,
Ronald Lyle Goldman.
The prosecution maintains he did.
Enter the jury, the final arbiters of
truth.
After months of trying to influ-
ence public opinion, the lawyers for
the prosecution and defense move
