day-to-day basis than the president,
since he and his Cabinet set and ad-
minister policy.
If Aristide has selected someone
from an original pool of six candi-
dates, he has kept it a close secret,
although many sources think it will
be Smart Michele, a wealthy busi-
nessman who has maintained links
with the generally anti-Aristide in-
dustrial sector.while strongly backing
the president.
The other key Cabinet nomina-
tions that diplomats say must come
quickly are the ministries of finance
and planning and the president of the
Central Bank.
"If Aristide expects to get a quick
infusion of money, then he has to
name a financial team this week,"
.said a U.N. financial expert. Most
sources think the finance minister will

be Leslie Delatour, a free-market ad-
vocate who has designed a long-range
economic program approved by
Aristide and the international lending
agencies.
The planning minister probably
will be Leslie Voltaire, while the Cen-
tral Bank could be headed by Marie-
Michele Ray, a veteran banker who
was finance minister in Aristide's
original government.
Those selections would be ac-
cepted, even welcomed, by most of
the business community, including
those who approved if not actively
backed the coup because of Aristide's
alleged leftist political views.
One possible candidate who draws
shudders from diplomats and some
moderate pro-Aristide Haitians, is
Rene Preval, Aristide's original prime
minister and current political adviser.
Although Preval was on the original
list for prime minister, Aristide has
found a less controversial job for him.

RAPE

lice Department. "Her wallet and her
checkbook were found in West Park."
Both items were missing after the
attack, but were found Friday morn-
ing with the aid of a police tracking
dog. The park is about seven blocks
west of the rape scene and in the
opposite direction of the scent that led
to the hospital area.
"So one theory is that the guy was
traveling west from the hospital area
perhaps backtracking," Scheel said.
"Another theory is that the guy dropped
her wallet and her checkbook, and some-
body else picked them up, rifled through
them, and dropped them off at West
Park. ... It's too early to tell which
theory might be the right one."
Police are examining videotapes
from security cameras around the city,
including a camera near the hospital
entrance, in hopes that the suspect
was captured on film after the assault.
Scheel did not rule out the possi-
bility that the scent tracked to the

hospital was not that of the attacker.
Any evidence collected in this case
will be sent to a state police crime lab
for analysis. Sexual evidence retrieved
in the incident has been sent to the
state police DNA lab in Lansing.
It will take six to eight weeks
before the DNA test results are avail-
able to compare with evidence in the
serial rapist's previous sexual assaults.
In August, an anonymous call was
made to the Ann Arbor Police De-
partment from a man claiming to be
the rapist. He was upset that he was
being described as aBlack male rather
than as of Mexican and Puerto Rican
descent. In that call, he said his next
victim would be a teen-age girl.
But the victim in the latest, known
rape is older and has described to
police that her attacker as a Black
male. Police are unsure whether or
not to identify the August call as a
hoax, but continue to investigate tips
being phoned in.
U Anyone with information regard-
ing the serial rapist is urged to con-
tact the police tip line, 996-3199.

estly," she said. "I sit here now and
think I should be more careful. But I
don't want to be more careful. This is
just another story that keeps you from
being who you are. It leaves you a
little powerless.
"Also, each rape that he commits
adds to the fury," she continued. "You
know he's gaining more and more
power. I personally have a lot oftcon-
fidence in myself to control situations
and to protect myself. But when a
person gets beyond moral values -
like this guy - there isn't really any-
thing you can do."
While the serial rapist remains at
large, many women have said they
have changed their habits. Many
women say Thursday's rape only so-
lidifies their dependence on others.
"Though the practical solution to
the problem is for women to be walked
or driven places, I don't like having to
depend on someone else. It makes me
feel like a child," said Jenny Schmid,

to use it to stop the government from
governing."
Kohl campaigned with a slogan of
"No Experiments!," and the
chancellor's fourth term is unlikely to
deviate from the cautious domestic
and foreign policy policies that have
marked his tenure. Strongly commit-
ted to greaterEuropean unity, agradu-
ally expanded NATO and strong ties
with the United States, the chancellor
is viewed as a reliable and predictable
ally by U.S. officials, who were un-
easy at the prospect of a Scharping-
led government that would have in-
cluded the left-leaning Greens.
Kohl portrayed himself as a rock
of stability and warned voters that
Scharping would have to govern with
the Greens, who advocated a $12-a-
gallon gasoline tax, and with the
former east German communists.
As the wealthiest and most popu-
lous country in Europe, Germany al-
ways draws intense foreign scrutiny
when it goes to the polls. Since the
end of the Cold War and German
reunification four years ago, domes-
tic politics here have assumed even
greater importance because of the
widespread assumption that few of
the continent's problems -from eth-
nic warfare to plutonium smuggling
- can be solved without German
leadership. Kohl's challenge now is
to tackle those issues with the slim-
mest of mandates. Scharping, 46, had
attempted to portray himself as a cen-
trist who could control the left-lean-
PERRY
Continued from page 1
One indication of the political sen-
sitivity of Perry's visit: Whereas
Brown brought 25 corporate chief
executives with him to promote deals,
Perry has taken two key senators,
Senate Armed Services Committee
Chairman Sam Nunn (D-Ga) and the
committee's ranking Republican,
John Warner of Virginia.
"I will stress that the military rela-
tionship is bounded by the political
context, which includes human rights,
and that security problems caused by
proliferation damage the mutual se-

curity interests and bilateral relation-
ships," Perry told reporters on the
plane from Kuwait to Beijing, Reuter
news agency said.
Perry will encounter a military in
flux. The 3.2 million-member

"My male colleagues can stay ang
work in the studio until 4 a.m. be-
cause they don't have to think of how
they're going to get home. I can't
freely go, because I'm always having
to think, 'How am I going to get home
at 1 a.m.?"'
However, fear seems to be fo-
cused on campus, rather than in the
community.
"This is something I don't spend
lot of time thinking about. I don't liv
in town, and I guess because the rapes
have been committed here, I some-
how feel distant. I guess it's a dumb
attitude, but I feel insulated," said
Ann Arbor Township resident Kate
Carras.
Jim Shields, an Ann Arbor resi-
dent, said more ought to be done to
catch the serial rapist. "This rapistis
criminally insane. He's committnb
predation, which is a whole new level
of crime and thinking," Shields said.
"Perhaps it would be interesting
to bring the FBI into the case to invs-
tigate."

party brethren. He invited compari-
sons to himself

from a younger
generation--but
his emphasis on
the ailing Ger-
man economy
fizzled when un-
employment
dropped and the
country began to
boom again. The Scharping
challenger's best
hope in unseating Kohl would likely
have involved accepting tacit parlia-
mentary support from the former
Communists, a compromise
Scharping vowed he would not make.
Projected results gave the com-
bined Christian Democrats and Chri*
tian Socialists 41.7 percent of the
vote, and their liberal Free Democrat
partners 6.6 percent; the Social Demo-
crats 36.8 percent; the Green Party 7
percent; the Party of Democratic So-
cialism 4.3 percent; and a variety of
fringe parties a total of 3.6 percent.
Although the ex-communist Party
of Democratic Socialism won less
than the 5 percent generally needed
for parliamentary representation, *t
was strong in four areas and is eti-
mated to have won 29 seats overall
Parliamentary.
"I really believe that they'll have
to take us more seriously now, given
our success"Scharping said.
People's Liberation Army is reexam-
ining its strategy, outdated equipment
and relationship to The Communis
Party - issues that have intensified
in the five years since the suspension
ofU.S.-Chinese military cooperation.
Chinese military leaders also have
an agenda for this trip, and sources in
Beijing say it has little in common
with Perry's.
First, they want to mend the rifts that
followed the 1989 crackdown on pro-
testers. SomeobserversseePerry'svisi
as a vindication of China's supre
leader, Deng Xiaoping, who in 1989
shrugged off foreign criticism and the
damage to relations as temporary.

"Surely at the level of symbolism,
Perry's visit says we're putting the
past behind us," said Jonathan D.
Pollack, senior advisor for interna-
and the damage done to relations as
temporary. ,.Mi
