"It was like a theatrical performance,'
said Dana Buck, exhibits preparator at
the Kelsey Museum. "We had a deadline
date. Everyone - students, faculty, staff
- all-nighted together the night before
the exhibit opened, fixing everything up.
We were still sweeping floors when the
first audierice came through."
David Huppert, assistant preparator at
the Kelsey Museum and an LSA first-
year student, commented on the set-up
aspect of the exhibit.
"It seems pretty mundane," he said.

"It is very, very good," said Alfonso
Araujo, a visiting student from
Venezuela. "(The exhibit) is the first I've
seen like this."
But a high school class that toured the
exhibit a few days ago had a slightly dif-
ferent take.
"They liked how we showed the detec-
tive work in archaeology," said Becky
Loomis, the Kelsey Museum's educa-
tional curatorial assistant. "We tried to
bring it alive for them."
"But they did seem kind of bored."

Israel to meet peace accords


Los Angeles Tunes
CAIRO - Amid conflicting reports
as to whether there may an agreement
on the long-delayed Israeli troop with-
drawal from Hebron, President Ezer
Weizman of Israel yesterday promised


Egypt's leader
that Israel will
meet its obliga-
tions to the
under their
signed peace

Jordan, with U.S. mediator Dennis
Ross shuttling between Palestinian and
Israeli officials to hammer out a plan
for an Israeli pullback from Hebron.
Israeli chief negotiator Dan
Shomron and his Palestinian counter-
part Saeb Erekat continued to meet
into the night in
Jerusalem, with
the Palestinian
later indicating
to Israeli
Television that

no progress. But
a more upbeat
osni Mubarak came from Ed
dent of Egypt Abington, the
U.S. consul gen-
eral in
Jerusalem, who said "Things are
going well. There are still some diffi-
culties, but they are not insurmount-
Although Weizman's trip to Cairo
was coordinated with Netanyahu, the
cordial two-hour meeting and lunch
he shared with Mubarak emphasized
the snub by the Egyptian leader of the
Israeli prime minister.
Mubarak last week refused to attend
a Washington summit called by
President Clinton with Netanyahu.
The Egyptian repeated to a news con-
ference Monday that he has no inten-
tion of meeting Netanyahu until
Israeli troops withdraw from Hebron.
For his part, Weizman took pains to

avoid appearing disloyal to the prime
minister. He said his role in Egypt was
to "heal certain splits, which everyone
sees, with the largest Arab country."
He was noncommittal when asked if
Netanyahu had miscalculated in
deciding to excavate an archaeological
tunnel in Jerusalem. That act sparked
violence that killed at least 75 and
injured more than 1,000. "I am not
here to analyze Mr. Netanyahu's deci-
sions," said Weizman.
By inviting Weizman - whom he
has known for 19 years - to Egypt
instead of the prime minister,
Mubarak was able to convey his sup-
port for the peace process, while sig-
naling his displeasure with Netanyahu
and his policies.
Mubarak said he accepted the
pledge given by Weizman that Israel
would honor its agreements. He said
he did not press for details because he
said he understands that the accords
are still being negotiated between the
Israelis and the Palestinian Authority
led by Yasser Arafat. "I told
(Weizman) that Egypt will continue to
support the peace process as much as
we can, until we reach a comprehen-
sive settlement to the whole problem
and until peace prevails all over the
whole area," Mubarak said.
While offering the Arab side little
of substance, Weizman stressed
Israel's good faith. He said the road to
peace could be rocky but that
Palestinians and Israelis have no
choice but to live with one another.

Smokers to pay more for insurance
HARTFORD, Conn. - Non-union salaried employees of United Technologies
Corp. who smoke are being told to pay an additional $500 each year for their med-
ical insurance.
However, the program taking effect Jan. 1 is based on the honor system. Workers
at Pratt & Whitney, Hamilton Standard, and other divisions of United Technologi
were told to tell insurance administrators if they smoke cigarettes, cigars, or pipes.
There are no provisions to force anyone to volunteer for the added expense, said
Martin Moore, a spokesperson for the defense contractor.
Workers represented by the Machinists union are not affected because the sur-
charge wasn't negotiated as part of their contract.
The company cited statistics from the American Lung Association which indi-
cate that a smoker, on average, costs at least $1,000 more each year in medical ben-
efits than a non-smoker.
The surcharge also is considered an incentive to quit smoking, UTC officials

Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's gov-
ernment has moved more slowly than
some would like. "Better late than
never;" said Weizman, who has used
his largely ceremonial post to try to
nudge the peace process forward and
ease the tension that has developed
between Israel and the Arab world.
As Weizman and Mubarak met in
Cairo, there was a frenzy of diplomat-
ic activity taking place in Israel and

Madonna gives birth
to baby girl
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Madonna
with child is now Madonna and child.
A 6-pound, 9-ounce girl was deliv-
ered yesterday. Mother and baby
Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon are fine.
"Mother Madonna Ciccone, father
Carlos Leon and their daughter are all
resting comfortably,"said spokesperson
Liz Rosenberg. "We would like to
thank everyone for their kind wishes"
Rosenberg wouldn't reveal any other
details, including whether the birth was
natural or came by Caesarean-section.
Reporters, photographers and TV
crews started gathering outside the hos-
pital at midday in anticipation of the
birth, but nobody got a look at mother
or baby. They may have left the hospital
before the announcement.
The baby, born at 4:01 p.m. at Good
Samaritan Hospital, is the first child of
Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone, 38.
The 30-year-old father is a personal
trainer and boyfriend to the pop singer
and actress.
Madonna pursued motherhood, liked
she does most everything, with
vengeance and bawdiness.
Months before she announced her
pregnancy, Madonna told "Primetime

Live" she planned to find a suitable
candidate for "the fatherhood gig" by
taking out a personal ad.
She didn't have to bother. The darkly
handsome Leon was right in her own
gym. She hasn't married him and hasn't
said she plans to.
But she did not use him as a "stud
service;' she says in November's Vanity
Fair. And she didn't get pregnant '
"shock value," she said.
Home testing
market expands
WASHINGTON (AP) - An ever-
increasing number of Americans are
using medical kits that let them check for
high cholesterol, colon cancer and even
the AIDS virus without having to leave
the privacy of their homes.
Yet the government has no policy.
guide decisions on when these increas-
ingly sophisticated tests - with their
sometimes emotionally charged results
- go beyond the routine and demand a
doctor's interpretation.
"It becomes a matter of social policy
- what is an appropriate test for an indi-
vidual to engage in themselves?" said
Wayne Pines, a former Food and Drug
Administration official who is a cons
tant to the medical device industry.

Peruvian navy
locates underwater
wreck of plane
LIMA - Following pings from
flight data recorders 680 feet underwa-
ter, the Peruvian navy has located the
wreckage of a Boeing 757 that crashed
two weeks ago in the Pacific Ocean.
Officials said yesterday that the
wreckage is strewn along the ocean
floor 55 miles northwest of Lima, the
Peruvian capital. The site is near where
a U.S. Navy team picked up the sound
of the "black boxes" last week.
The wreckage of Aeroperu Flight
603 was located shortly after the Oct. 2
crash, but was lost again in the fierce
currents of the Pacific. Of the 70 people
aboard the flight, only 14 bodies have
been recovered.
Officials said they hoped to find the
other bodies in the wreckage. The
largest piece, 140 feet by 14 feet, appar-
ently is the main fuselage, the Peruvian
navy said.
A team from Oceaneering
Technologies Inc. of Baltimore will use

an underwater robot to help recover the
black boxes and the bodies.
Model wakes from
coma after liposuction
SAO PAULO, Brazil - Claudia Liz,
an actress and top model, has come out
of a three-day coma triggered by lipo-
suction surgery.
Liz, 27, came out of the coma on
Saturday, and was speaking, eating nor-
mally and walking with the help of
nurses, neurosurgeon Jorge Roberto
Pagura of Brazil's Albert Einst*
Hospital said yesterday.
"The prognosis for Liz's recovery
was good," Pagura said.
Last Wednesday, Liz was being anes-
thetized at the Sante Clinic for a fat-
removing process known as liposuction
when she suffered cerebral hypoxia -
a reduction of oxygen to the brain.
She was rushed to the Albert Einstein
hospital, considered one of the best in
South America, and placed in the inte-
sive care unit.
