qRabin tryes toreassurkoe Israelis n wak ofm ing

JERUSALEM - Although Israel has de-
feated all the Arab armies it has fought, it
remains so painfully vulnerable to terrorism
that, following the weekend suicide bombing
that killed 19, many Israelis despaired yester-
day of ever seeing peace.
"Many are asking me, 'Did you bring
*ace, or did you bring terror?"' Prime Min-
ister Yitzhak Rabin said in a television ad-
dress as he defended his controversial efforts
to make peace with the Palestinians. "I under-
stand the question. The peace process is not
easy. ... Yet, we will continue the search for
peace. There is no other alternative."
But the terrorist attacks will continue,
Rabin acknowledged, for in the immediate
future there is no sure way to halt them.
"Peace is the only solution, and that is in the
long run," he added. Israel is caught in a
political-military dilemma for which Rabin
admitted he has no quick or easy solution. The
attacks by members of radical Islamic groups
are exacting a heavy toll from Israel, politi-
cally as well as in human terms.
Demands are growing that Rabin abandon
plans for Palestinian self-rule on the occupied
West Bank. There are demands as well that he
send Israel's army and police in full force
against the Muslim militants.
Yet a harsh retaliation, such as suspension
of the ongoing negotiations with the Palestine
Liberation Organization, sweeping arrests of
Islamic leaders or a prolonged closure of the
Palestinian territories only weakens the PLO
and jeopardizes the peace process.
"When you are involved in peace negotia-
tions, it is very difficult to use all the forces
you have," commented Gerald M. Steinberg,
a military analyst at Bar Ilan University in Tel
Aviv. "To halt this wave of terrorism, Israel
would have to go into Palestinian villages and
towns on what were known in Vietnam as
search-and-destroy operations. ... Negotia-
tions would be a casualty."
Rabin said his approach, as before, will be
to pursue the negotiations with the PLO, de-
manding that it take tougher measures against
the radicals, and to combat terrorism without
regard for the negotiations.
Rabin boldly vowed to strike back. "No
border will stop us from getting at you," he
told the radicals. "We will finish you, we will
annihilate you, we will destroy you. And we
shall win." Israel's strategy for such a victory
is far from certain. It is facing adversaries who
are willing to die for their cause.
The Cabinet authorized the police and the
General Security Service, Shin Bet, to hire
additional personnel despite budget cutbacks.

Duderstadt suggested that problems

"But what if the department chair is

"Replace him," Duderstadt said.
"No, I'm serious, I think that's one of
the most important duties of a chair."

TOKYO - Turmoil erupted in
Parliament yesterday over the
government's handling ofJapan's killer
earthquake as the death toll surpassed
5,000, unofficial damage estimates rose
to $100 billion and the stock market
suffered its biggest drop in 3 1/2 years.
"Bungling" in the government's
handling of the disaster showed that
under the Cabinet of Prime Minister
Tomiichi Murayama, even the most
minimum responsibility of the govern-
ment ... to protect the lives and prop-
erty of the people ... cannot be ful-

Kaifu, now the leader of the main op-
position party, charged in Parliament.
"If the government had responded
quickly, many lives would have been
saved," said Kaifu, who heads the New

hour when the quake struck and saying,
"It was my firstexperience,"Murayama
acknowledged that "whatcould be con-

devastation. But yesterday, the Social-
ist leader did a flip-flop and called his
actions "the best possible decisions."

Dental students fix

While most University students
spend their study time engrossed in
books, dental students are filling cavi-
ties and fixing crowns.
Under the supervision of profes-
sional dentists who serve as faculty,
students perform services ranging from
simple cleanings to constructing dental
bridges. The service fees are approxi-
mately oue-third less than the post of
services rendered by a private practi-
tioner and contribute to paying over-

Because the clinic serves as a class-

Although clinical programs similar
to the University's are common at most
dental schools, some students do not
feel comfortable trusting another stu-
dent to work on their teeth.
"I would have students clean my
teeth, but I wouldn't have any cavities
filled," said Lewis Krain, anRC junior.

drill in your mouth, you want to make
sure that they've been through school,
and they know what they're doing."

"The Provost is both chief aca-

The president said he plans on form-
ing a "faculty search committee" of
approximately 10 faculty and student
members from both the undergraduate
and graduate levels.
"I think that it is quite important to
involve the faculty in this process
because after all, the success of the

support," Duderstadt said.
