RUSALEM - After prolonged and painful labor,
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat completed a long-
awaited accord early this morning to pull back Israeli
forces from the city of Hebron and the rural West Bank.
Initialed about 2 a.m. Jerusalem time at a stark con-
crete border post, the agreement was a historic turning
point in Israeli politics and in the tortuous efforts of
Israelis and Palestinians to reach territorial compro-
mise. The unlikely partners, distrustful to the end and
a npanied by U.S. special envoy Dennis Ross,
e ged and shook hands coolly after more than two
hours of talks.
"Both sides took each other's needs into account,"
Ross said to waiting reporters, by way of explanation,
in a brief statement just before 3 a.m.
Although not much more in substance than a
revised commitment to pacts reached long before, the
deal was the first for Netanyahu and his governing

Likud party with the Palestinians and a painful depar-
ture from Likud's bedrock ideals.
Netanyahu committed his government to transfer
land and limited governing power to Arafat - four-
fifths of Hebron immediately, and substantial chunks
of the rural West Bank by the middle of next year.
Arafat, for his part, renewed unkept promises to extra-
dite suspects wanted by Israel on criminal charges and
to rewrite the Palestinian Covenant to expunge calls
for Israel's destruction.
After reaching their accord this morning, the two
men passed cellular phones back and forth while plac-
ing joint telephone calls to President Clinton, Jordan's
King Hussein and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak
- awakening the Egyptian leader with news of their
In Washington, Clinton told a White House briefing
that the Hebron accord "brings us another step closer
to a lasting, secure Middle East peace. Once again the
Israelis and the Palestinians have shown they can

resolve their differences.... Once again the forces of
peace have prevailed over a history of division."
Clinton called the agreement "a good omen," but
cautioned that much remains to be done. "This is not
a time to relax," he said. "It is a time to reinforce our
commitment to peace."
Both leaders are expected to submit the accord to
their cabinets today, and an Israeli parliamentary vote
should come this week.
By last night, anticipation of the pact had opened
cleavages in Netanyahu's governing coalition and
political base. Although a bare majority in
Netanyahu's cabinet seemed likely to back him, the
result remained uncertain.
The accord calls for Israeli troops to depart most of
Hebron within 10 days, finally completing a withdraw-
al from the West Bank's six largest towns that was
begun in 1995. But Israel's army is skittish about a pro-
longed twilight period there, and senior officers

Largest increase seen
in 10th graders'
marijuana use
By Jeffrey Kosseff
Daily Staff Reporter
A study by three University professors
found that drug use in teen-agers nation-
wide is steadily increasing.
The largest increase found in the
Monitoring the Future study is in the use
of marijuana by 10th graders, a number
that doubled in one year to 34 percent.
But Lloyd Johnston, who conducted the
study with Patrick O'Malley and Jerald
Bachman, said marijuana is not the only
drug increasing in use among teen-agers.
"We certainly have been seeing an
increase in a wide range of drugs,"
Johnston said.
LSD usage rose to 9 percent among
high school seniors, and the use of ice, a
form of crystal methamphetamine, dou-
bled since 1992 to 2.8 percent among
12th graders.
The marijuana statistics show the most
noticeable increases, but it remains
unknown whether marijuana necessarily
leads to other illicit drug use.
Johnston said that although "almost
everyone who uses any other drugs first
uses marijuana' there is not sufficient
evidence to show marijuana is a gateway
drug. Johnston's colleagues said they
"Most people who use cocaine also
drank milk as a child," said David Carter,
professor of criminal justice at Michigan
State University who has studied the
field of teen drug use. "There is correla-
tion, but there are too many factors to
definitely say it's causal."

The results of the survey were released
last month at a forum with Secretary of
Health and Human Services Donna
Shalala and national Drug Czar Gen.
Barry McCaffrey.
Some disagree with the focus group of
the study.
"The adult drug problem dwarfs the
teen figures," said Mike Males, author of
the book "Scapegoat Generation," an
argument against studies that focus on
Males said the federal government,
which sponsored the Monitoring the
Future study, uses such studies to blame
teen-agers when adult drug and alcohol
use is actually a larger problem.
"It's a crock. ... We have the worst
drug abuse crisis in the country after 10
years of the failed wars on drug use,"
Males said. "We have this mushrooming
problem of 15 million binge-drinking
adults that affects children at home. Kids
are being raised in increasingly violent
However, Carter said Johnston's study
is very accurate, and the information is
"Given all of the related studies I have
seen, it is a good, consistent study"
Carter said.
Johnston said he does not support
campaigns such as the "Just Say No"
campaign in the '80s because "slogans
don't generally work.' He said educa-
tional programs such as Project Star,
which uses role-playing, are more
"One of the unintended conse-
quences of the role-playing is students
