Rabin appeals for U.S. aid to Israel
Israeli prime minister
meets with Clinton,
Dole in effort to get
WASHINGTON (AP) - Presi-
dent Clinton assured Israeli Prime
Minister Yitzhak Rabin yesterday he
would ask Congress to keep U.S. aid
at the $3-billion level and to approve
new funding for an anti-missile de-
"We are going to have a very ro-
bust security relationship," Clinton
said after an 80-minute meeting in the
Oval Office that centered on lagging
peace talks between Israel and Syria.
Since any agreement is bound to
involve an Israeli withdrawal on the
strategic Golan Heights, Clinton went
out of his way at a joint news confer-
ence to emphasize the United States
intended "to stand behind Israel and
In fact, he said he was prepared to
make a case to the American public
and Congress for deploying Ameri-
can troops in the border enclave as
part of an international force to moni-
tor any Israeli-Syrian accord.
But, Clinton said, "there has been
no agreement of any kind about this.
We are jumping the gun here on this
part of it."
Keeping aid to Israel at the $3-
billion-a-year level could run into re-
sistance as Republicans who take a
skeptical view of foreign aid assume
control of Congress. Sending Ameri-
can troops to the Golan Heights also
is bound to conflict with sentiment
against overseas involvements.
Rabin set aside a heavy propor-
tion of his meeting time to see senior
members of Congress, with a special
emphasis on Republicans such as in-
coming Senate Majority Leader Bob
Dole of Kansas and Strom Thurmond
of South Carolina, who is to become
chairman of the Senate Armed Ser-
Clinton said Israelis "have to feel
it in their bones" that they are secure
as they approach agreements with the
Arabs. Accords with Jordan and the
Palestine Liberation Organization, as
well as any treaty with Syria, involve
the small country giving up territory
for a promise of peace.
Israel receives the largest share of
U.S. aid and could be hurt by any
across-the-board reduction even if
Israel is not the specific target of
critics of foreign aid. The Arrow anti-
missile defense program, meanwhile,
is likely to need a new infusion of
U.S. assistance as it moves from re-
search and development to a testing
phase. It is a joint program designed
to protect Israel with a missile to
shoot down incoming missiles.

The event was aimed at providing
the new group with a social scene

Queer Unity Project is an activist
group, founded two months ago. "We
seek to be more visible and politically
active. There is a visibility problem
here (in Ann Arbor). Two-thirds of
teenage suicide is made up of the gay
youth," Lynn said. "It is much easier
when they can see others like them-
With many issues on campus con-
fronting the group, the need for the
gay and lesbian community to band
together is more urgent, Lynn said.
"(Queer Unity Project) has
grown a lot and it is great to see the
support in light of the two new re-
gents and their feelings of
homophobia," asserted Matt
Robison, director of member devel-
opment. "Right now it hasn't been
an issue but the regents should know
that this has solid support. We want
them to know that we are here to
protect and support same-sex rela-
tionships." Robison said.
Currently, the organization is
still in development. "There is a lot
of skepticism because a lot of queer
groups come and go," Robison said.
"Our primary goal is infrastruc-
Not all members of the organiza-
tion are homosexual. "It is people
who care about human rights," said
SNRE first-year student Megan
Owens. "(The group) lets people know
that there is a gay community and it
helps those who are questioning their
sexuality and lets them know that
they are not alone."
The gay community in Ann Ar-
bor is much different from that of
other cities. First-year Engineering
student Jeff Lemaster explained the
differences between Ann Arbor and
Houston. "There is a very large gay
community in Houston and they let
themselves be seen. That is why this
is important - you cannot get
change without acceptance and you
won't get acceptance without vis-
ibility," he said.
Although the group stresses re-
spectability and open-mindedness,
they do come into contact with some
opposition around campus.
LSA senior Chad Beyer sparked
controversy at the University last year
when he and friends posted AIDS
education fliers around campus sup-
porting a group they set up - Queer
Action, agroup similar to Queer Unity
Project that later fizzled out.
"College Republicans sent fliers
in response to our AIDS education
fliers which read 'Family values cures
aids,"' said Beyer.
The event had support as about 30
members participated in the event.
Regular Amer's customers had some
different reactions - a few people
exited and others watched in curios-
ity. "I think it's good that they have an
organization for alternative life-styles.
I definitely wouldn't treat anyone any
differently," said LSA junior Tony

LOS ANGELES - It's all over

"I feel very blessed that Julie has

Arnold was sighted at the Mainstreet
Comedy Club in Ann Arborin October.
He was attending a show in which
Champnella's brother performed.
David Crosby recovering
David Crosby remained in critical
condition Monday after a transplant
to replace his drug-ravaged liver.
"The transplanted liver is func-
tioning very well right now. Mr.
Crosby is off the ventilator and talk-
ing," said Dr. Ronald W. Busuttil,
leader of the transplant team.
The 53-year-old member of the
rock group Crosby, Stills and Nash
received the new organ Sunday at
University of California at Los Ango
les Medical Center.
Crosby was hospitalized Nov. 2.
His liver had hardened and deterio-
rated because of decades of alcohol
and drug abuse.

ever, I don't believe this will bring

It was not immediately clear what
impact yesterday's raid would have
on the Bosnian Serbs.
Bosnian government reports said
that ground fighting in the Bihac area
was continuing, but it seemed likely that
the Serb-controlled bombing would be
interrupted at least temporarily.
U.S. Adm. Leighton W. Smith,
commander of the NATO operation,
said that the allied air armada scored
"good hits" in the area.
The raid was the first under a
new U.N.-NATO get-tough policy
that extended the no-fly zone previ-
ously maintained only over Bosnia
and authorized NATO warplanes to
strike at multiple targets, rather than
using "pinprick" raids against a

clear and open and harsh and tough."
The radio station also appealed to
Fatah activists to attend the pro-Arafat
march and to bring their guns with
them. Many of the militants who re-
sponded by the busload to Arafat's
call were leaders of the Palestinian
uprising, or intifada, that erupted in
Gaza and the West Bank in 1987.
They were largely pushed aside when
Arafat and other PLO officials from
Tunis arrived in Gaza to take over the
Palestinian Authority in July. But Arafat
turned to them yesterday as his strongest
base of support in the territories.
"Today is a referendum of the
national authority, a referendum of
the PLO," Arafat told the crowd. "The
state of alert continues and eyes are
open. You are the protectors of secu-
rity, no one can take away from Fatah
and the Palestinian police."
Hours before the march began,
leaders of Hamas and Islamic Jihad
told reporters that they would not sign
an accord with Arafat brokered by a
group of Israeli Arab leaders.
"Arafat must accept personal re-
sponsibility for what happened Fri-
day. That is our number one condi-
tion. Until that condition is met, we
will not sign anything," said Ahmed
Bahar, a Hamas leader in Gaza.
The Palestinian authority had of-
fered to set up a judicial commis-
sion of inquiry into Friday's occur-
rences, but balked at accepting
blame for what the opposition calls
On Friday, an estimated 200 armed
Palestinian police, wearing helmets
and carrying riot shields, surrounded
the Palestine Mosque in downtown
Gaza City, where about 6,000 wor-
shipers - many of them supporters
of Hamas and Islamic Jihad - had
gathered for noon prayers. Accounts
differ over who started the confronta-
tion that ensued, but a riot erupted as

Adelman said CRISP should be
phased out in time for Spring 190
registration. However, Kessler said
that "there will always be some trans-
actions that you will do with the prob-
lems desk (at the CRISP office)."
The lower turnout made assistant
door attendant Amelia Peterson's job
"much easier." Compared to last year,
Peterson said "students are moved
along at a quicker pace." She has been
working at CRISP for about 7 year
Eric Puravs, a statistical clerk wh
inputs schedules into the CRISP main-
frame, said there is a lot less pressure
than in previous years because not as
many people came through the doors.
"I never had a bad experience with
CRISP, but with touch-tone I didn't
have the lines," Peak said.

from where the gal was abducted to,"
Burke said. "It's just a regular knit cap.
He then cut the eye holes out of it."
Burke would not comment on why
information about the mask was not
released earlier but said that police
have examined it for clues - paying
particular attention to the strands of
hair left in it.
The Michigan State Crime Labo-
ratory in Northville has been involved
in analyzing evidence left by the se-
rial rapist and the serial molester but
the results of both investigations have
not been made public.
"I already got the results but Iam not
going to tell you what it is," Burke said.
Dr. David Ginsberg, a University
human genetics professor said that
clues like hair strands containing DNA
- the genetic material unique to an
individual - can be compared to
DNA samples from a suspect and
thereby incriminating him.
The police are fairly certain the
mask was worn during the Oct. 23
abduction and sexual assault.
"I showed it to the victim and she
said that was it," Burke said.
The woman was driven toBird Hills
Park in the early morning hours but left
physically unharmed. It was after that
incident thatpolice began checking pre-
vious cases for similarities.
The man typically binds or hand-
cuffs his victim. He threatens them with
rape and fondles them.
In each case, the victims describe
their assailant as apologetic and gentle.
All the women involved talked the
suspect out of raping them.
The man police are looking for is
described as a white male, 5 feet 8
inches to 6 feet tall, with an inch-long
grayish-brown beard. He has a me-
dium build and is between 30 and 40
years old with a pointed nose and gr*
He was last seen wearing a blue
waist-length, hooded, cotton sweat
jacket, dark pants, dark shoes, and ared
and gray wool scarf on Oct. 23. He also
was carrying a dark-colored knapsack.
"We're close to 140 tips," Burke
said. "As far as cleared, we've prob-
ably cleared about eight or nine of
those people. There's probably
names - a lot of the tips are just a ti
in factor.... Those are just general
no-name tips that we're getting and
logging them to keep track of any
patterns we can see."
Anyone with information re-
garding the serial molester is asked
to contact the city's police tip line at
