The Libertarian Party was founded
in 1971 and since then has had a wide
variety of support and its candidates
has run for major office.
Libertarians still draw on some ide-
ologies of both the Republican and
"We agree with the Republicans in
keeping government out of financial
matters and we agree with the Demo-
crats about keeping government out of
personal life. Sort of the best ofthe two
major parties," Karpinski said.
Democrats and Republicans react
differently to Coon's candidacy and to
new interest in the Libertarian Party.
"When we had the debates, Bob
Carr had truly believed that (Coon)
deserved the opportunity to be heard,"
said Craig Sutherland, spokesman for
theDemocratic candidate for U.S. Sen-
Sutherland also indicated he be-
lieved that Coon had a good chance to
gain the five percent needed to have a
primary for his party. "The largest
constituency is independent. If a third
party gets more people involved then
it is better for everyone," Sutherland
However, Republican Spence
Abraham's spokesman, Steve Hessler,
offered a different comment.
"Spence wanted all the candidates
to debate or else just the major par-
ties," Hessler said. "We challenged
the Carr campaign and when Jon Coon
wanted to get in on it, Spence fought
for the remaining candidates to get
The election is unique because the
Libertarian Party has so many loyal
followers, Karpinski said.
"Our supporters are dedicated,"
she explained. "No one is paid and the
funding is totally individual. The other
parties are out spending 20 times as
While the race for the U.S. Senate
might seem a little far out of the
Libertarian's reach, it may mean a
significant amount of recognition for
a party whose ideas seemed radical
only 23 years ago.

gan, Minnesota, Tennessee, Virginia
and Pennsylvania, all with close Sen-
Clinton's remarks to a campaign
rally in Minneapolis, where Demo-
crats have their best chance to pick up
aRepublican-held Senate seat, seemed
to be a tacit acknowledgment that
control of Congress is at stake.
"Why would we want to give the
Congress to people who want to take
us back to what almost wrecked us in
the 1980s?" said the president, who
finished a week of nonstop campaign-
ing with a rally last night in
Wilmington, Del. "Say no to them.
Say yes to our future."
Even if Republicans don't gain an
outright majority, conservatives are al-
most certain to gain working control of
Congress, Democrats concede. Clinton
would likely be forced to shift his agenda
to the right, on such issues as welfare
reform, taxes and health care reform, or
else adopt a veto strategy that would
lead to further stalemate.

Jackson alluded to the ex-U.S.
representative's fight as head of an Af-
rican Affairs subcommittee in the House
for American pressure to end to white-
minority rule in South Africa.
"There is some reason why one of
the firstpeopleNelson Mandelawanted
to see (after his release from prison)
was Howard Wolpe, because he's been
there in the trenches," Jackson said.
Wolpe said Detroit voters have
the power to confound the polls and
send him to Lansing in Engler's place,
"With your help, we are going to
generate John Engler's worst night-
mare, which is a huge, unprecedented
voter turnout, and we'll be able to
celebrate together tomorrow night."
Tomb of Patriarchs*
opens in West Bank;*
Israelis fortify site
The Washington Post
HEBRON, West Bank - Israeli
authorities changed what they could,
grafting electronic gates onto ancient
stone walls and ringing the perimeter
with cameras. When the Tomb of the
Patriarchs reopened here yesterday,
eight months after a Jewish settler
gunned down 29 Muslims at prayer,
the army had built it into a fortress.
Yet if the structure stood trans-
formed, the attitudes of its claimants
had also hardened. In a cold, driving
rain, Jews and Muslims came to vent
their rage at sharing the site where
Abraham and his progeny-regarded
as patriarchs in both religions - were
laid to rest.
Yesterday, at least, the new ar-
rangements held. Zealous Jews tried
to disrupt Muslim prayers, but all
they could do was shout and pound on
the tall steel doors erected to divide
the antagonists. Islamic militants
threatened to stage an attack, but none
Every entrant to the tomb passed
through two metal detectors and a
phalanx of police. Only 300 of each
faith could go in at a time, and Jews
and Muslims were prevented from
mingling. Embarrassed at theirghetto
connotations, the army hastily re-
moved new signs reading "Passage
for Jews" and "Passage for Muslims,"
but separate entrances and prayerhalls
Outside the tomb, Hebron remains
a focal point for struggle between
Jews and Palestinians - a struggle
that is violent and spiteful. No one
speaks of a "peace process" here. Eats
side claims the same place, every inch
of it, and there is not a voice of com-
promise to be heard.
"You can'tcommand all the people
to behave in a non-violent way,"
Mustafa Abdel-Nabi Natshe, the PLO-
appointed mayor of Hebron, said in
an interview. "Maybe one expresses
his point of view in a political way.
Others, they behave violently. We ar.
afraid the Arabs or the Jews will com-
mit a new massacre."
The talk of killing was not far
beneath the surface.
Ephraim Rosenstein, a Jewish set-
tler from Kiryat Arba, praised the
man who committed last February's
massacre. Baruch Goldstein,:the
American-born physician who
brought his assault rifle to the tom
and fired into the mass of kneeli
Muslim worshipers, was actually pre-
venting a "massacre of the Jews,"
"In 100 years they will say (Prime
Minister Yitzhak) Rabin and (For-
eign Minister Shimon) Peres were
small players in the era of Goldstein,"
Rosenstein said. Leaving the tomb,
he collected a .45 caliber pistol from
soldiers who now require enterin*
Jewish worshipers to check their guns.
Said Tamimi, whose son Nidal
died recently in a confrontation with
soldiers, expressed the Palestinian

in the modifications, we've taken out
the part about signing the statement,"
Sophomore Brian Gitlin, an LSA
Student Government representative,
said the student government supports
the policy as well as the modification.
"We felt that it might scare stu-
dents away and it's expensive," he
said. "In terms of the legality, it is just
not necessary to have students sign."
The college will draft the state-
ment with help from faculty and stu-
dents. Schoem said the college hopes
to have it ready by next fall.
Also, starting Jan. 1, the proce-
dures governing cheating cases will
change. Students accused of cheating
will be able to choose between an
informal administrative hearing and
the formal LSA Academic Judiciary
Under the new policy, faculty
would not need to bring the evidence
to the hearing, rather the college will
hire an outside "case investigator" to
gather information. After a decision
is reached, the assistant dean for stu-
dent academic affairs will determine
Currently, faculty must bring all
evidence, and students must go
through the lengthy formal hearings.
The judiciary determines the sanc-
Schoem said faculty and students
found the current process too time-
consuming. Faculty often avoid the
process and handle the cases them-
selves, he said.
Schoem added he hopes the new
procedures will encourage faculty
members to use the process.
"It is the lack of due process in
addressing cheating that is dangerous
to both students and faculty," Schoem
said. "Cheating is a violation of col-
lege policy not a crime ... against the
individual faculty member."
Eugene Nissen, assistant dean for
student academic affairs, will handle
punishments under the new policy.
He said the college hopes to achieve
uniformity in sanctioning.
Nissen has been testing the new
procedures on a voluntary basis this
semester. The college is giving stu-
dents accused of cheating the option
of an informal hearing with Nissen as
both investigator and sanctioner. Un-
der the test, students not satisfied with
the decision could ask for a formal
Nissen tried 18 cases under tOr
test conditions. Fourteen students
were found guilty and one appealed
the decision in favor of a formal hear-
ing. The judiciary upheld Nissen's
decision in the case.
"All in all my experience with
using the new procedures were quite
positive," he said.
Student and faculty complaints
also led the policymakers to requir
the college to give a public report o
all cheating cases and sanctions.
Nissen said he feels that while
publishing is necessary, the college
must ensure that names cannot be
matched to cases. "One has to be very
careful to protect rights of privacy."
