GAME
Continued from Page 1
Engineering sophomore Joshua Sauer proposed a
way around the regulation.
"I'd try to get everyone else around me to rush the
field, so they couldn't stop us," Sauer said.
Rushing the field may endanger fans, Hall said.
"It's our hope that people will not rush the field,"
she said. "It presents a danger to both people in and
out of the stands."
DPS will be cooperating with the Michigan State
Police, Ann Arbor Police Department and the
Washtenaw County Sheriff's Department to maintain
order at the game. "There's going to be increased
security in general;" Hall said.
Students have never rushed the field in full force at
Michigan Stadium. Still, officials are concerned that
this may happen at such an emotionally charged event.
"The level of excitement among students, staff and
particularly among alumni, is just astonishing," said

Vice President for University Relations Walter
Harrison. "People are absolutely thrilled by all this. I
think it's terrific."
While fans might not be permitted to rush the field in
the event of a Michigan victory, there will still be plen-
ty of excitement. Two events are being planned to make
this football Saturday in Ann Arbor even more memo-
rable - a pre-game student tailgate on Elbel Field and
a post-game celebration at Michigan Stadium.
The student tailgate is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.
and will last until kickoff at noon. The event is spon-
sored by Nike, Starbucks Coffee and Borders Books
and Music and other local and national companies.
Along with $1 pizza slices, the event will feature
activities such as Nike interactive sports, a raffle for
footballs signed by the Michigan football team and a
live band performance.
The student tailgate is being organized by
Spiritchange, a new student organization that has been
working since September to host this event.
"Our basic goal is to increase school spirit at athletic

events," said Spiritchange member Barbara Rublein.
Spiritchange members sent out more than 1,000 e-
mail messages to attract attention to the tailgate and
plan to continue advertising throughout the week.
"We're hoping to get around 500 or 600 people,"
said Rublein, a Business senior.
"It will be interesting," said Spiritchange president
and LSA senior Rachel Madden. "Hopefully, we'll get
a good turnout."
The post-game celebration will be held in Michigan
Stadium immediately after the game. Organizers orig-
inally intended to hold the festivities at Crisler Arena,
but changed the location to Michigan Stadium
because of its larger size, said Deb Moriarty, assistant
to the vice president for student affairs.
"Players (and) coaches will speak," Moriarty said.
"(It will be) a typical post-game celebration."
Fans will inevitably be worked up by the end of the last
quarter and the post-game celebration is a way to safely
cool down. "There's a need for everybody to expend their
energy," Moriarty said.

Feds to let motorists turn off air bags
WASHINGTON - Federal regulators will allow some motorists to have on-Off
switches for their automobile air bags, provided they meet certain criteria indicat-
ing passengers could be seriously injured or killed by a deploying bag.
The new government regulation - scheduled to be announced this morning at
the Department of Transportation - allows cutoff switches for the driver- or pas-
senger-side air bag in vehicles already on the road, according to industry and L
ernment sources speaking on condition of anonymity.
Motorists would read information about air bags and sign paperwork certifying
that they fit into one of several higher-risk categories of people before a mechanic
installs the switch.
There has been a public outcry over air bag deaths, prompting the government
in March to allow air bags in new cars that deploy with less force.
Air bags have been blamed for the deaths of 49 children and 38 adults. Most of
those killed were not wearing seat belts.
Air bags also have saved more than 2,600 lives.
Four major automakers - General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co., Toyota
Motor Sales USA Inc. and Nissan North American Inc. -- all say they h
retrofit cutoff switches in the works. Many other automakers say they are
studying the idea.

EGYPT

tourists like sheep on the floor and
slaughtering them. ... We were up to
our knees in blood. Even those who did
not die will be dead psychologically."
Police exchanged fire with the gun-
men, killing one at the scene while the
rest fled in a commandeered bus. Over
the course of the next several hours,
police killed five more gunmen when
they sought refuge in nearby desert,
authorities said.
The attack was the most lethal inci-
dent of violence in Egypt since Islamic
fundamentalists launched their cam-
paign to topple the secular, military-
backed government of President Hosni
Mubarak in 1991.
Coming after more than a year of rel-
ative calm, and repeated claims of vic-
tory by government security officials,
the violence served as a brutal reminder

of the continued terrorist threat in the
Arab world's most populous and, by
some reckonings, influential country.
There was no immediate claim of
responsibility. But suspicion centered
on the Islamic Group and Islamic Jihad,
Egypt's two main militant organiza-
tions, and a witness said the attackers'
red bandannas bore the Arabic words
for Islamic Group. The two organiza-
tions' targets have included police, gov-
ernment officials, secular intellectuals
and, occasionally, foreign tourists in six
years of violence that has killed more
than 1,000 people on all sides.
Yesterday's attack was a major set-
back for Egypt's tourist industry, which
has undergone a renaissance of late
after several years in the doldrums
caused by previous episodes of vio-
lence. Tourism is a mainstay of the
Egyptian economy and travel agents
braced for a wave of cancellations just
before the busy holiday travel season.
COUNCIL
Continued from Page 1.
The amendment is already supported
by the Michigan Association of Chiefs
of Police, the Prosecuting Attorney's
Association and the Michigan
Municipal League, in addition to many
gay and lesbian groups, Kolb said.
Twenty states and the District of
Columbia have laws protecting homo-
sexuals from discrimination.
Kolb said that both of Ann Arbor's state
representatives and its state senator are
"all strongly in favor" of the amendment.
"I think it has a good chance of pass-
ing the House," Kolb said. "Passing in
the Senate will take some work."
State Sen. Alma Wheeler Smith (D-
Ann Arbor) said that if the bill survives
the Senate Judiciary Committee, it will
probably pass in the Senate.
"It really depends on where the judi-
ciary stands on the bill," Smith said. Key
to passing it is winning the support of
Judiciary Chair William Van
Regenmorter (R-H udsonville), she said.
Smith said she is hopeful that Van
Regenmorter will lend his support
despite his conservative bent.
"I think this is a man who believes in
the personal security of every man and
woman in this state," Smith said.
The issue of discrimination by sexu-
al orientation recently has become an
issue of great importance in the neigh-
boring city of Ypsilanti. A social work
group that went to a print shop to have
some raffle tickets made has recently
attracted attention. The owners of the
shop refused to print the tickets on the
grounds that the raffle proceeds were to
benefit a gay and lesbian event.
Ypsilanti councilmembers have
since introduced legislation to forbid
discrimination by any of 14 attributes,
including sexual orientation.
"After the printer, people started say-
ing, 'Wait a minute, I can't believe that
people can do this,"' said Paul Heaton
of the Campaign for Equality, a group
advocating the city ordinance.
Heaton said it was right for a city to
have non-discrimination statutes.
"I would never expect that to happen in
an Ann Arbor environment," said Kenneth
Jones, chair of the Michigan Student
Assembly Minority Affairs Commission.
The city of Ann Arbor does protect
against discrimination by sexual orien-
tation through a city ordinance.
"As a big college town, we expect it
to be more inclusive" Jones said, but
added, "Of course, you can find igno-
rance anywhere you go."

Stolen art was
displayed at gallery
WASHINGTON -An art show that
drew gushing reviews at the National
Gallery of Art seven years ago is get-
ting a second look - and a far less
friendly reception.
Critics complain the museum failed
to note that some of the paintings had
been looted by the Nazis from Jews in
France.
"This exhibit raises a myriad of
questions, including why your presti-
gious institution gave a public plat-
form to a Nazi arms dealer who was
also the largest Swiss buyer of looted
art," Sidney Clearfield, executive
vice president of the Jewish organiza-
tion B'nai B'rith, wrote gallery direc-
tor Earl Powell.
The gallery minimizes its role in
displaying "works of art that were
shown for nine weeks in a tempo-
rary loan exhibition" pieces of
owned by the late Swiss industrialist
Emil Buhrle and a foundation he
created.

Among the 84 paintings in the
show, "The Passionate Eye," were at
least four - by Alfred Sisley,
Camille Corot, Edgar Degas and
Edouard Manet - that had been
seized by the Nazis when they occu-
pied France during World War lIt
historians say.
Prosecution Rniks
Nichols to 'hot' guns
DENVER - Hoping to show how the
Oklahoma City bombing was financed,
government lawyers yesterday tied Terry
Lynn Nichols to a cache of exotic
firearms and other valuables reporter
stolen from an Arkansas gun collect
"Testifying at Nichols' trial, Karen
Anderson, the roommate of gun
enthusiast Roger Moore, identified
about a dozen weapons and other
items, including pieces of expenlsive
jade, that she said were stolen from the
Moore farm.
Some of the items were discovered in
Nichols' home in Kansas after the bomb-
ing.

Allies may adust
sanctions on ra
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - As an
incentive for Iraq to end its confrontation
with the United Nations over weapons
inspections, the United States and its
allies are considering "modest adjust-
ments" in part of the international sanc-
tions against Baghdad - maybe allow-
ing Iraq to expand its oil sales, a senior
U.S. official said yesterday.
Other possibilities include increasing
the variety of humanitarian goods Iraq is
allowed to buy through the special U.N.
arrangement and eliminating periodic
reviews of the progran.
The proposals, which U.S. Secretary
of State Madeleine Albright discussed
yesterday with the British and French
before flying to Pakistan, would give
Moscow and Paris new leverage in
their consultations with Baghdad -
and potentially a face-saving mecha-
nism for Iraqi President Saddam
Hussein to reverse course.
Over the weekend, the United States
invited Russia and France to mediate the
Iraqi crisis. The next phase of the show-

down is expected to be dominated by
their intervention.
But the United States, through its pos-
sible shifts in the Baghdad embargoso
wants to undercut the primary sour f
opposition worldwide to the United
Nations' sustaining against Iraq the
longest, most comprehensive sanctions
in modern history.
Windsor Castle
makeover fished
WINDSOR, England - Ther is
good news for Queen Elizabeth II d
Joe Tourist alike: Five years after fire
ravaged Windsor Castle, the landmark
of British royal history has risen from
the ashes, fully restored and welcoming
again to resident royals and awe-struck
visitors.
"The queen thinks it is marvelous
and says she was absolutely delighted,"
said project head Michael Peat at a
media viewing yesterday of one of the
century's most challenging, comx
works of restoration.
