JERUSALEM - In his last sched-

down as the top U.S. diplomat,
Secretary of State Warren
Christopher arrived in the Middle
East yesterday for a last-ditch effort
to get Israel and the Palestinians to
clinch a deal on an Israeli troop with-

Moussa was pessimistic that there
will be a breakthrough at the three-day
meeting, the first regional conference
bringing together Arab states and Israel
since the May election of Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
"Until this time, we don't see any
possibility for that" dramatic occur-
rence, Moussa said. "There is a gap,
more that one gap, between the posi-
tions of Israel and Palestine."
He blamed Netanyahu, who he said
had abandoned the peace processes
guiding principle: land for peace.
"This is the problem," Moussa said.
"He believes that he can have peace,
territory and everything. He will never
U.S. officials have been trying to
bring the Israelis and Palestinians
together on a Hebron agreement since
late September, when gun battles on the
West Bank and Gaza Strip left more
than 75 Palestinians and Israelis dead.
E. coli outbreak may bring new rules-
WASHINGTON - Alarmed by another E. coli bacteria outbreak that killed a
child and sickened dozens of others in Western states, the government is con$sir-
ing forcing all apple juices to be pasteurized.
Also under debate are measures such as chemically washing fresh produce or
forcing manufacturers to adopt programs that prove foods stay pure from harvest
to dinner table.
The deliberations come after at least 49 people, mostly children, were sickened
from E. coli in trendy, unpasteurized fruit juices. One child died Friday in Denaver.
Once thought a threat only in undercooked meat, the virulent E. coli 0157 strain
now has surfaced repeatedly in apple cider and even in lettuce.
Health experts weren't alarmed until two weeks ago when Odwalla Inc., based in
Half Moon Bay, Calif., recalled its gourmet juices that contained tainted apple juice.
That outbreak showed that even large companies known for quality are vulnerable.
"The number of outbreaks are significant in the past year," said John Vanderveen
of the Food and Drug Administration. But "there's no doubt this is a different prob-
lem this time"
Just hours after the recall began, he called a special meeting to warn apple jui
makers "to ratchet up their quality control" while the government decides then

"They're pretty good," Smiley said.
DPS has asked officials at Penn State
to tell their fans who are traveling to
Ann Arbor this weekend to be alert.
Officers will also be working under-
cover with Ann Arbor and state police
to try to apprehend those selling the
tickets, Smiley said.
If caught, the offense is a misde-

RC sophomore Katie Neighbors said
she has not had a problem with scalping
because she usually buys her tickets
from the University or from friends.
"I wouldn't get it from a stranger
because I've heard of (fake tickets),"
Neighbors said people are always
scalping tickets on game day,
During last year's season finale
against Ohio State, at least 40 counter-
feit tickets were discovered by DPS
officials. Those seats were in section
36, row 69, seats 11 and 12.
Smiley said this year's fake tickets
appear to be different from the Ohio
State counterfeit tickets of last year, but
the motivation is the same: A big game
with a tough ticket to get.
He also said ticket-counterfeiting is a
new phenomenon at the University.
"Last year was the first time it really
came to our attention," Smiley said.
"Against Michigan State we were really
filled, so it was a good time to try it."

Keyhole popular for
NEW ORLEANS - Coronary
bypass patients recover faster, have
lower hospital bills and suffer much
less pain if doctors fix their hearts
through a tiny slit in the chest instead of
splitting open the rib cage, the standard
approach for the past 30 years, a study
Surgeons have been experimenting
with the new approach, called keyhole
surgery, for about two years. Yesterday
they released the first head-to-head
comparisons with the traditional opera-
tion, which is performed on more than
400,000 Americans annually.
So far, doctors are using it on
patients with single blockages, which
make up only about 5 percent of all
bypass patients. But the field is moving
so quickly that experts expect more
complicated operations will be done
this way within a year or two.
"This is just the beginning," said Dr.
Renee Hartz of Illinois Masonic
Medical Center in Chicago.
In a presentation at the annual scien-
tific meeting of the American Heat
Association, Dr. James Magovernkof
Allegheny University of Health
Sciences in Pittsburgh compared 48
patients who got keyhole surgery mand
55 who underwent the usual operation.
NEW YORK - Moving on severl
fronts to confront its racial scandal,
Texaco Inc. held settlement talks-in a
discrimination lawsuit, met with civil-
rights leaders and released a report by
an outside investigator yesterday saying
that a former executive did not use a
racial epithet in the secret tape recor*
ing that triggered the controversy.
Michael Armstrong, the formerfed-
eral prosecutor hired by Texaco to
investigate the scandal, reported that
analysis of a digitally enhanced version
of the August 1994 tape recorittg
shows that, contrary to a courtVral-
script of the tape, then-treasurer Rob'ert

reference to black employees.

"Each and every soldier has added to
this delicate web, making this country
strong and able," Miller said.
"A mission is not accomplished by
an individual, but by individuals mak-
ing up the whole," he said.
Though yesterday's ceremony hon-
ored veterans from all American wars,
it focused on World War 11. World War
I1 veteran and history Prof. Sidney Fine
said emphasis across the country was
given to remembering the Vietnam War
"(World War 11) was the great war of
the United States, and was a war with-
out the negative feelings," Fine said.
"Every American, including myself,
thought it was a war that had to be
Fine said he does not believe that the
University has ever made a great fuss
about Veterans Day, but it is not neces-
sarily the University's position to do so.
"I think it is perfectly proper for the
country to remember it," Fine said.
At the Diag ceremony, the Air Force
Honor Guard and the Army drill team
performed precise rifle maneuvers. The
Tri-Service Color Guard was responsi-
ble for retiring the old flag and raising
the new one.
The flag ceremony, which dates back
to the colonial days of the nation,
involves two parts. The first part was
held yesterday at the Diag and the sec-
ond part will be held in the near future.
"The second part is done in private,"
said Maj. Sanford Blanton, assistant
professor of military science.
"The flag is disposed with in a digni-
fied way. Usually it is burned in a dig-
nified way, and the ashes are spread in
peaceful place. We will probably take
them to the Arb," Blanton said.
Blanton said the ceremony represents
respect for the flag and everything the
flag stands for.
"(The ceremony) was paying tribute
to the flag and thereby paying tribute to
every veteran," Blanton said.
Japan's new remier
TOKYO - Four days after his re-
election, Japanese Prime Minister
Ryutaro Hashimoto called yesterday
for a broad deregulation of the nation's
financial markets, saying he wants to
lift Japan's economy by making it oper-
ate more like the free marketplaces of
Europe and America.
Hashimoto's plan, which calls for
more open financial markets within
five years, is the most specific package
of reforms proposed by any Japanese
leader in the last decade. He has won
plaudits for moving quickly and setting
a time frame to achieve his goal.
After booming in the 1980s, Japan's
economy has slowed, partly because
excessive government regulation has
made Tokyo an unattractive market for
Hashimoto said he intends to make
Tokyo's financial market more compat-
ible with those of the rest of the world
- "equivalent to those in New York
and London by 2001" - by changing
the laws covering banking, securities,
insurance, foreign exchange and related

Bang,"' said newly appointed Finlam
Minister Hiroshi Mitsuzuka, alluding $o
