Ten title may be on the line as 'M' faces Lions
By MICHAEL ROSENBERG

Is tomorrow's Michigan-Penn State foot-
ball game important? Only if you consider a
Big Ten title, a Rose Bowl bid and a shot at the
national title important.
Penn State coach Joe Paterno and Michigan
ch Gary Moeller apparently do, because they
are taking this game seriously.
"If you don't like playing in games like
this one, I don't know what the devil you're
doing here," Paterno said. "(You) might as
well be teaching tiddlywinks or something."
The implications of this contest are huge.
If No. 3 Penn State wins, it will have the inside

ranked teams remain on
the Lions' schedule.
If Michigan wins, it
will be in prime position
to go to the Rose Bowl.
The Wolverines also
don't play any teams cur-
rently in the top 25. They
will have a chance at the
3:30 p.m. contest as the one of the hottest
teams in the country. They have won 10
straight games and have outscored their first
five opponents by an average of 34.4 points.
The Wolverines (2-0, 4-1) are coming off
their best performance of the season, a 40-20
pasting of Michigan State.
"I don't think there is any team in the
conference playing as well as Michigan and
Penn State," Nittany Lion wide receiver Bobby
Engram said. "I'm looking forward to it. I
think this is what college football is all about."
This figures to be Penn State's first real
test of the season. The Lions have beaten
Southern Cal, Temple, Minnesota, Rutgers
and Iowa so far this season. None of those
squads was within striking distance in the
"I don't figure on beating everybody like
that," Engram said.
Michigan, on the other hand, has had noth-
ing but close games this season. Boston Col-
lege and Iowa put up a fight before falling to
the Wolverines. The Notre Dame and Colo-
rado games went down to the final play.
"Every time I look up, the score is 35-0,
Penn State, in the first quarter," Moeller said.
As for the tightness of Michigan's games,
Moeller says his team has to get used to it. "I
don't think that's something that is going to
end any time soon."
If this game goes down to the final min-
utes, Michigan figures to be in better shape
than Penn State. The Wolverines have come
back from deficits in every game. The Nittany
Lions have trailed only once, 6-0 to Temple.
This is the third year in a row Penn State
started out 5-0. Each of the past two years,
they failed to make it to 6-0.
"We've been in great positions the past
two years," Engram said. "We just haven't
seized the opportunities."
U.S. halts plan to
scale back troops
Los Angeles Times
JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia - Iraqi forces
abruptly halted their retreat back to Baghdad
yesterday and U.S. officials responded imme-
diately by suspending a plan to scale back U.S.
military deployments to the region.
The Iraqi move startled U.S. defense offi-
cials, who hours earlier had announced that the
United States was slowing its flow of forces to
the region and were even talking about return-
ing troops already in Kuwait to the United
States "within weeks."
As night fell, it was unclear whether the pause
in the Iraqi withdrawal was merely a logistical
foul-up or the beginning of a serious military
challenge to the United States and its allies.
In Baghdad, Washington and at the United
Nations, there were rapid-fire diplomatic de-
velopments throughout the day and evening
yesterday that promised some progress toward
an easing of the Persian Gulf crisis while raising
the likelihood of a substantial long-term U.S.
military presence in the area.
Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, after meeting
with Russian Foreign Minister Andrei Kozyrev,
announced on state television that he would
recognize Kuwait's sovereignty and its borders
before Iraq occupied the country in 1990. Such
recognition is one of the key requirements
Baghdad must meet before the United Nations
will consider lifting harsh economic sanctions
imposed in the aftermath of the 1991 Persian
But U.S. officials all but dismissed Hussein's
announcement as a propaganda ploy. "We are
skeptical because of all the broken promises in
the past," a U.S. diplomat said.

Peace Corps director outlines
progress of 34-year program
From the deserts of Mauritania to
the jungles of Guatemala, 6,500 Peace
Corps volunteers work in communi-
ties around the world each year.

Bellamy visited the University on
Wednesday to speak on the Corps'
tradition of service and its place in a
Bellamy was tapped by President
Clinton in 1993 to head the organiza-
tion that sends volunteers to more
than 93 countries in programs tar-
geting education, business, agricul-
ture, health and the environment.

Johnson spoke with Bellamy on
Q: How do you define the Peace
A: The idea of the Peace Corps is
premised on what we call our three
goals. Goal one is Americans going
overseas to experience working at the
community level with people and
transferring some of the skills that
they have.... Goal two is that people
in other countries will get to know a
little bit more about America through
dealing with the volunteers. Goal three
is, hopefully, America will come to
have a bit more respect or at least
understanding of other cultures.
It is an opportunity to go overseas
and make a small difference in other
people's lives for the Peace Corps vol-
unteer. The volunteer can learn another
language, have a cross-cultural experi-
ence, and, in my opinion, have the two
most interesting years of their life.
Q: Have there been shifts of focus
since the Peace Corps' conception in
A: The answer is yes. What hasn't
shifted are those three goals. What
has changed are the world's needs.
For example, we are still working in
education. We have math teachers,
science teachers and English teach-
ers, but a lot of our English-as-a-
second-language teachers are work-
ing in a number of the former Soviet
Union states, because they see En-
glish as important in terms of a stron-
ger economy. ...
A number of our health workers
are still working in simple childhood
nutrition, but they're also working in
AIDS education and prevention. This
is something, obviously, even 10 years
ago we weren't involved in places
like Thailand or Cameroon.
Q: Do you have any specific goals
as newly appointed director?
A: Well, right now we are at a 15-
year high. I would like Peace Corps to
continue to grow. I have set a goal of
7,500 which would be a 20-year high.
Another goal is to be open to new

ment with Cambodia, and we took the

to leave the country and permit the
return Saturday of President Jean-
Bertrand Aristide, who was driven
into exile by a military coup on Sept.
But Cedras delayed his depar-
ture while he wrested final financial
concessions from the United States
- a promise that the Americans
would rent his own home in the
suburb of Peguyville, his mother-
in-law's Port-au-Prince home and a

U.S. Embassy spokesman Stanley
Schrager denied reports that senior
American military officials would live
in any of the three homes but con-
firmed that the United States would
rent the properties.
He declined to give the price be-
yond saying they would be leased "at
fair market value," possibly to U.S.
Sources close to the Haitian mili-
tary, however, said the Peguyville
home, which has been stripped bare,
would be rented for $4,000 a month
for a year, to be paid in advance.
The leases for the beach house and
the mother-in-law's home, also for a
year, are for "several thousand dol-
lars" a month each, the sources said.
