Persian

Gulf

MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) - With a
fresh round of attacks on Iraq still a
possibility, Defense Secretary William
Perry said yesterday that Bahrain has
agreed to become the second Persian
Gulf country to serve as a base for
American forces and weaponry.
Perry said the 23 F-16s to be based in
the small island nation will help
enforce a "no-fly" zone over southern
Iraq, where U.S. warplanes have been
patrolling since the end of the 1991
Gulf War.
"Just yesterday we had conducted
more than 100 sorties over southern
Iraq," Perry told a news conference
after meeting
with Bahrain's
leaders. Perry
is making the
rounds among
allies in the
Gull', seeking
additional sup-
port for the
United States'
stance against Perry
Iraq.
Perry noted Iraq has challenged
"Operation Southern Watch," most
recently in response to American cruise
missile attacks on military targets in the
zone Sept. 3 and 4. Those attacks were in
response to an Iraqi military incursion
into a Kurdish safe haven in the north.
"They had challenged it by reconsti-
tuting air defense units in-the area, they
challenged it by moving mobile ... mis-
siles in the area. They challenged it by
firing six missiles at an airplane," Perry
said.
Iraq said Friday that it would cease
firing at allied warplanes - if they
stopped patrolling Iraqi skies. There
have been no reported Iraqi attacks
since Thursday. although the patrols

continue.
Perry arrived in Bahrain from
Kuwait, where he said a fresh round'of
attacks on Iraq remained an option.
"We will not tolerate threats to our
air crews and anything that Iraq does to
threaten our air crews will meet with a
very strong response:" he said.
Although Bahrain agreed to host the
F-I6s, Perry was unable to get permis-
sion from Kuwait to deploy thousands
of additional U.S. troops in the emirate
that Saddam invaded in 1990, touching
off the Gulf War.
The Pentagon announced Friday that
5,000 troops from Fort Hood Texas,
would leave for Kuwait. Yesterday,
Pentagon spokesperson Kenneth Bacon
said officials recalculated units shipping
out and lowered the figure to 3,000.
"I have not authorized that deploy-
ment order and will not until I get the
authorization of the Kuwaiti govern-
ment;' Perry said just before leay ing
Kuwait for Bahrain.
Perry said he had sought permission
from Kuwait's Emir Sheik Jaber al-
Ahmed al-Sabah, who told him
Kuwait's Defense Committee would
discuss the request.
Asked if a fresh round of strikes
against Iraq was conceivable, Perry
said: "Yes, it is still a possibility."
Washington dispatched more ships
and planes to the Middle East in a show
of force, and members of a 1,200-
strong American contingent already in
Kuwait fired live artillery rounds
Saturday in military exercises near the
Iraqi border.
Iraq's government-run newspapers
sharply criticized the American mili-
tary buildup.
"Imposing the no-fly zones in the
north and south of our country is an
aggressive act by any standard," the
daily Al-Thawra said.

Same play, different stadium and, fortunately for the
Michigan football team, a different outcome.
For the second meeting in a row, Michigan battled
Colorado down to the final play of the game.
But unlike two years ago, when then-Colorado quar-
erback Kordell Stewart's 64-yard prayer was answered
by wide receiver Michael Westbrook in the final second
of the game, there was no miracle for the Buffaloes.
Colorado quarterback Koy Detmer's desperation 37-
yard toss with five seconds left on the clock Saturday
fell onto the turf in the back of the endzone, and the No.
11 Wolverines topped the No. 5 Buffaloes 20-13.
This year's conclusion eerily resembled the 1994
contest, when Colorado stunned a packed Michigan

was going to come down to anoth-
er Hail Mary pass and I got kind of
nervous," said Michigan defensive
back Chuck Winters, who was in
on the 1994 play. "But I have 10
other guys to help me. The first
instinct was, don't let it happen again. My second
thought was, I had 10 other guys."
Winters wasn't alone in thinking about the final play.
"Oh no, here it comes again," LSA sophomore
Adam Glantz said he was thinking when Detmer
dropped back for the final pass.

And when Glantz saw the ball
bounce in the back of the end-
zone?
"Let's go to South U.," he said.
Between 300 and 400 students
gathered near South University
Avenue and the front steps of the
Michigan Union. The group sang
--The Victors." chanted "Go

Blue." and targeted the Buffaloes
with a chorus of "overrated."
However, after about 10 minutes. rain came and the
majority of the crowd quickly dispersed.
Up next for the Wolverines is a home game

Dole, Kemp court
voters in Freeland

Dole asks for five
cents on every dollar
to balance budget"
By Laurie Mayk
Daily Staff Reporter
FREELAND, Mich. - Bob Dole
made it clear that he wants - and
needs - Michigan's votes when he
spoke at a full-scale Republican rally
Friday.
The Republican
W sidential candi-
e was joined by
running mate Jack
Kemp, Gov. John
Engler, Senate
hopeful Ronna
Romney and sever-
al thousand
Republican sup-
porters at a rally in
Freeland, Mich. Dole
Friday afternoon.
* Workers said a
fire marshall's
orders forced them ' ' .
to turn away several
hundred support-
ers, who voiced the
day's first chants,
"We want in."
"It's very much
as Michigan goes,
goes America," Kemp
Wo le said in his
speech. The ticket has been "working
hard" in the state, and will continue to
concentrate on swaying Michigan vot-
ers, Dole said during his second visit to
Michigan this month.
"The Dole campaign must win

cies.
"We've proven Bob Dole's economic
plan works because we're using it in
Michigan and it works pretty well,"
Engler said.
Much of the rally was dedicated to
the Republican economic plan as audi-
ence members waved "15%" signs
symbolizing Dole's pledge to cut taxes
by 15 percent.
Audience members. including
Engler, tossed nickels on stage when
Dole asked for "just five cents on the
dollar" from every American to help
balance the budget.
Kemp, accompanied by his wife
Joanne, vowed to restore security and
independence to farm communities
with an overhaul of the federal tax sys-
tem.
"We're going to tear the whole tax
system out by root and branch and draw
up one for the 21st century," Kemp said.
Kemp spared no criticism in his
assessment of Clinton's handling of the
economy.
"This economy stinks until one
breadwinner can do what two bread-
winners are doing today." Kemp said.
Romney said Kemp's comments
appealed to voter concern about "quali-
ty of life." Parents are working more,
spending less time with their families
and keeping less of their paychecks. she
said.
Dole reiterated his promise to bal-
ance the federal budget and cut taxes
with a plan to "slow the rate of
increase" in federal spending and
assured senior citizens that cuts would
not bleed Social Security and Medicare
programs. Under Dole's plan, Social
Security and Medicare programs would

Students
put 'clock'
on tower
By Michael Blair
For the Daily
The frustrations of Engineering, Art
and Music students alike came to a head
with an artistic flair Saturday night.
From 8:30 until about 9 p.m., the stu-
dent group "entity," armed with a high-
tech projector, cast an image of an LCD
clock blinking "12:00"on the face of the
Lurie Memorial Carillon on North
Campus.
"It looked so legitimate!" said
Celeste Cueter, an eyewitness to the
prank. "When I knew it was a joke, I
thought it was hilarious."
While the prank played on the bell
tower may seem to be a simple joke,
many North Campus students feel they
have a legitimate ax to grind.
Two of the major gripes of students
on North Campus are apparent when
looking at the tower.
One, the carillon's construction takes
up almost the entire North Campus cen-
tral lawn, where students used to play
Frisbee and volleyball.
Two, although approximately $5.2
million was allocated to construct it, the
bell tower lacks the one thing North
Campus students really want - a clock.
"I think a clock would be useful,"
said Engineering senior Quintin Burns.
"After all, they spent how many million
on it?"
Plans for the carillon have never
included a clock, digital or otherwise.
The third issue - one that is not so

Spirit
prevails
during
festivities
By Ann Stewart
Daily Staff Reporter
Complaints from Trotter House
neighbors threatened to dampen: the
spirit of the Latino/a community but
couldn't hold back a sizzling start to its
Heritage Celebration this weekend.
During yesterday's Latino/a wel-
come picnic. nearby sorority and fra-
ternity residents called the Ann Arbor
Police and Department of Public
Safety officers to quiet the noise at the
event, said DPS Lt. Doug Swix.
But only warnings were given at the
scene, officials said.
"We just told them to tone it down a
bit and they did. There were no prob-
lems," Swix said.
Students said they were upset police
were called and felt it was racism.
"I think it epitomizes the hostile envi-
ronment Latinos feel at this university,"
said LSA sophomore Diana Dirig .
"This is a University facility and a
University-sponsored event," Trotter
House Facilities Coordinator Edward
Burnett said. "We never complain when
they do their thing at three o'clock in the
morning"
Katalina Berdy, Latino/a coordinator
for Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs, said
she was saddened by the impression the
incident could give Latino/a students.
"We are trying to create an environ-
ment of sensitivity and awareness of
multicultural affairs. We invite every-
body to take part. So when people
complain. it maikes the students feel
