vides students with chicano history awareness.
"I think it brought together the University community," Little
said. "People need to be more aware of chicano history."
John Matlock, assistant provost and director of the office of
Academic Multicultural Initiatives, said he was impressed by
the number of administrators that turned out for the dedication.
Matlock said the story the mural tells is of the struggles the chi-
cano/a people have survived in order to make progress.
-Matlock urged the audience not to be complacent. "We
have to figure out ways to continue to move forward,"
Matlock said.
Derige said there are still struggles and challenges that lie
ahead for the chicano/a community.

seminars in January to eating disorders.
Psychotherapists at the University's
Psychological Clinic have organized a semester-
long seminar to learn more about providing thera-
py for clients to ensure they are aware of the most
current treatments.
Joslyn Walson, a resident director in Mary
Markley Residence Hall, said she does not think
there have been enough programs on campus that
address eating disorders.
"People don't do enough to support each others'
body images," Walson said. "They don't compli-

lence of eating disorders.'
Geeta Bhatia, resident advisor in Markley, said
she notices that more and more girls in the dorms
look emaciated.
While RAs are not trained to confront eating dis-
orders, they are trained to point students to resources
for help. The first place they recommend is
Counseling and Psychological Services, which pro-
vides individual and short-term counseling.
A few sororities on campus have taken steps to
address eating disorders by having pamphlets and
fliers on bulletin boards in their houses.
Enrollment in McKinney's workshop is limited.
Students who are interested in the workshop can call
764-3471 to schedule a pre-workshop.

vith it," "We just want to say 'We're here,
ng." we're queer and hey, we're happy,"'
Rivera said.
Rivera pointed out that while
Valentine's Day is often considered a
holiday for heterosexual couples, the
Kiss-In offered another perspective.
"We're really no different (from other
people)," Rivera said. "We may love
someone of the same sex, but we love
people, just the same."
LSA sophomore Amanda Miller said
the Kiss-In involved a more diverse of
the University's community than it had in
the past. Participants said the group was
more multi-racial, more age representa-
tive and the event was better attended
than in past years.
"I think people are more comfortable
with their sexuality (at this year's
event)," Miller said.
Some students who did not partici-
pate said they viewed the event in a pos-
itive light.
"I think Valentine's Day is a con-
sumer holiday," said Rackham student
in Classical Studies Andrew Fenton. "If
these people want to take part in the
holiday, more power to them."
LSA first-year student Sherry
Guirguis also said she had no problem
with the Kiss-In.

NASA prepares for microbial Martians
PHILADELPHIA - Rock samples that NASA plans to scoop up from ,a s
could contain live bacteria or viruses, and scientists are making elaborate plans tc
protect Earth from possible microbial Martians.
Several federal agencies are working together to design and build a high tec
laboratory that will protect against a living Mars germ.
Such a germ might pose a risk of disease or infection for the Earth's.p
ple, plants or animals when the Martian samples are returned in about
years.
"Samples from Mars should be considered hazardous until proven otherwise,'
Jonathan Richmond, a biological containment expert for the Centers for Diseasc
Control and Prevention, said yesterday at the national meeting of the Americarn
Association for the Advancement of Science.
"The risk is very small, but not zero," said John Rummel, NASA's planet pro-
tection officer. "We're ignorant (about Mars) and what we've learned in biology is
that when you are ignorant, be careful."
Although the site and many details are still unknown, NASA plans to build adab-
oratory that would quarantine the Mars samples behind the same biocontainnen
barriers that scientists now use to prevent the escape of Ebola, a highly contagi*
and lethal African virus.

U.S. tracked POWs
in Chinese camps
WASHINGTON - Hundreds of
American service members were shut-
tled through a clandestine network of
prison camps in China during the
Korean War, say formerly secret U.S.
Army intelligence reports, which specu-
late that many died in captivity from
malnutrition or lack of medical care.
Rumors have persisted for years that
China, which intervened on North
Korea's side in the 1950-53 war, took
large numbers of U.S. captives for inter-
rogation and in camps inside China and
never accounted for them.
Declassified reports in the files of the
Army's assistant chief of staff for intelli-
gence now make clear that the United
States knew of the prisoners and closely
tracked their movements.
On a visit to Beijing in January,
Defense Secretary William Cohen asked
top Chinese officials to open People's
Liberation Army record archives and
other files that might help account for
missing U.S. service members.

About 8,100 are unaccountede a
from the Korean War.
Cohen got no explicit assurance
from President Jiang Zemin, but a
Cohen aide present in the meetingsai
lower-level Chinese officials indicated
Jiang's nonresponse should be interpr t
ed as tacit acceptance.

Iraq's neighbors fear
possible U.S. attack
AMMAN, Jordan - Countries that
border Iraq fear they would be the vic-
tims of economic and political fallout
from an American attack aimed at forc-
ing Saddam Hussein to cooperate with
U.N. weapons inspectors.
Jordan, Turkey and Iran again may
have to deal with huge waves of
refugees, as they did - with almost no
international help - during the 1990
Persian Gulf crisis and 1991 Gulf War.
Along with Syria, they have impor-
tant trade links with Iraq. And all are
watching with dismay as foreign
tourists cancel reservations for what
had been expected to be a lucrative
spring season.
Only Kuwait, which hasn't forgiven
Saddam for his 1990 invasion of the
country, has offered to support an
American-led military campaign.
Neighboring Saudi Arabia, which par-
ticipated with the U.S. led coalition that
ended Iraq's occupation of Kuwait, won't
even allow its military bases to be used
this time. Neither will Jordan or Turkey.

None wants to get dragged into a con
flict that most certainly would spreedi
