"I believe (that by) my experience

might help someone out there," he
said.
"People can change and get placed
in the right direction."
Marschke said he interviewed
Smith in prison and left believing
Smith had taken responsibility for his
actions.
Marschke also listened to Herman
Cortez and his supporters. Cortez also
is serving life without parole.
Cortez, of Colombia, has been in
prison since 1981. He was convicted in
1982 in Wayne County for trafficking
a large quantity of cocaine from
Colombia.
Cortez has been denied parole at
least twice previously. If his sentence
is commuted, Cortez will be deported
-- a move he said yesterday he would
welcome.

pact that would please the Palestinian side.
"The Israelis don't want to give up what they have
and the Palestinians are trying to get as much as they
believe they should have," said Pharmacy Prof. Nabil
Khalidi, the University's interim director of pharmacy
services.
Nabil, who is also a faculty adviser to the Muslim
Student Association, said holding talks is the first step
towards restoring Palestinian-Israeli relations.
"You get nothing but good out of talking," Khalidi
said. "We always are very happy when we hear there
will be discussions. Obviously, opening the dialogue
is positive even if there is no outcome the first time."
Others said the situation looked more promising a few
years ago former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin
and Palestinian leader Yassir Arafat first started peace
talks.
Rabin, who was assassinated in 1995, was much more
willing to negotiate than Netanyahu, LSA sophomore
Nicole Scaglione said.
"'Ihings were a lot more hopeful then because it was
very different regime," said Scaglione, social actions com-
mittee chair at Hillel. "I don't think either side is really

willing to do any negotiating. Ibey're both very rigid.
But the schism between Israeli and Palestinian leaders
is not the only threat to the peace process. Stockton said.
Israelis are divided over the policy Israel should adopt
towards giving up land to Palestinians, he said.
"You've got a fundamental rift among the Israelis,
between those who think giving the land away will com-
promise national security and those who think not giving
it away is dangerous," Stockton said. "Ihere's an extreme
polarization in Israel"
Some observers hoped the U.S. presence during the
talks would strengthen the chance of negotiation and rec-
onciliation, Khalidi said. The U.S. should pursue conces-
sions from both sides, he said.
"'The U.S., being the broker in this situation, should assist
quite a bit in here," Khalidi said. "'There is a strong belief
that the U.S. does not follow an even-handed policy"
But Stockton dismissed the idea that the United
States would push Israel to make concessions, citing
the partiality of Congress and the administration
towards Israel.
Regardless of the outcome of the talks, tensions must
be resolved, Khalidi said, for the good of the area, which
is suffering from the political conflict.
"There is a bright future if the people see it," he said.
"We're losing a lot in the region, Israelis and Arabs"

Liver virus spread through transfusions
WASIIINGTON 'Thousands of people will soon open their mailboxes to
find warnings that they may have caught the dangerous liver virus hepatitis C from
blood transfusions before 1992. It's the first step in a long-awaited government
attack on a hidden epidemic.
Ilepatitis C afflicts an estimated 3.9 million Americans, many of whom doO
know they're infected because the virus can lurk silently in their bodies. Put now
that doctors finally have treatments to offer a handful of drugs - the govern-
ment is launching a major campaign to get people tested. First on the list are tens
of thousands who received transfusions before purity tests of the blood supply
began in 1992.
Those people shouldn't panic, stressed Louis Katz of the Mississippi Valley
Regional Blood Center, who advised the government on the campaign.
"The message is: Ask your doctor," he said. Many people will just be carriers
of the disease, but for those with active hepatitis C, "we now have something to
offer."
A few hospitals, including some in Wisconsin and Minnesota, already h
begun tracking down at-risk transfusion recipients. But most were awaiting guiW
lines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, issued yesterday, so
doctors would have the best advice for worried patients.

a 100 percent effort on terrorism
issues," and she said whatever security
measures Arafat agrees to undertake
must be verifiable.
The American strategy, at least at
the outset, was to put an emphasis
on reciprocal anti-terrorism moves
by Arafat's Palestinian Authority to
match a virtual agreement %N ith
Netanyahu to pull back from a fur-
ther 13 percent of the West Bank.
Except for a nature preserve, the
land would be turned over to Arafat
to add to the 27 percent of the West
Bank and Gaza, already promised to
him under earlier accords.
Albright called it a "land-for-securi-
ty" deal, thereby placing new emphasis
on security instead of using the tradi-
tional label of land for peace.
Netanyahu's position is that he can-
not give up land, which is tangible, in
exchange for promises alone.
"We come with the best intentions
and we hope that there will be an
accord," Netanyahu told reporters at the
White House. "We're asked to give
additional territory. We want to ensure

Petrovskis said.
With age, the risk of contracting
breast cancer goes up, Petrovskis said.
There is also a higher risk of breast
cancer if one's mother, sister or daugh-

ly planning aid to countries that coerce

All of these, they said, reflected

"We wanted the government to be
smaller," Senate Majority Leader Trent
Lott (R-Miss.) said with other
Republican leaders at the Capitol. "We
wanted less decisions in Washington.
We wanted more decisions being made

that this territory doesn't become a base
and a haven for terrorists to attack us as
has happened before."
Arafat, in a brief exchange with
reporters, said he was optimistic an
accord could be reached during the
weekend retreat. But when asked
whether he can guarantee security in
the region, he said, "I can give 100 per-
cent effort, but no one in the world can
give 100 percent results."
Later, Hassan Abdul Rahman, the
Palestine Liberation Organization's rep-
resentative in the United States, urged
Netanyahu to "exert the same etforts
against extremists who are committing
crimes against Palestinian people and
settlers who shoot and kill Palestinian
people."
In an AVIV interview, Rahman
said "lverybody knows the ball is in
the Israeli court. Mr. Netanyahu can
make these talks or break them"
The summit, which is scheduled to
go on through Sunday but could be
extended, is a last-ditch effort by the
Clinton administration to end a 19-
month stalemate in peacemaking
between Israel and the Palestinians.
The U.S. aim is not only to conclude
a West Bank agreement but to launch
negotiations over such thorny issues as
Palestinian demands for a state with its
capital in Jerusalem, borders and
refugees.
"We must remember as we come
together again that, in the end, peace
is more than a process; it is, in the
end, a destination," Clinton said in
the Rose Garden after meeting pri-
vately for 42 minutes with Netanyahu
and Arafat.

AROUND THE WORLD

Lebanon's mil
head voted president
CAIRO,I gypt With unanimous
approval in parliament, Lebanon's popu-
lar army commander was elected presi-
dent yesterday. But the most important
vote had been already been cast by
Syrian President Ha fez Assad.
Syria has exercised an unofficial,
although universally recognized,
suzerainty over I ebanon since 1990.
And Assad gave Gen. I mile Lahoud the
nod last week from Damascus.
'The only dissenting voice to Lahoud's
ascension as the country's I I th president
was from fruze leader Walid Jumblatt,
who objected on principle to a military
officer becoming head of state. Jumblatt
was among 10 deputies who absented
themselves from the vote.
Nevertheless, Lebanese of all faiths
appeared to welcome the dynamic, no-
nonsense officer, credited with largely
expunging sectarianism from Lebanon's
military. Many expressed hope he will
do the same for the government.
Lahoud will be sworn in Nov. 24 to
succeed President Elias Hrawi, another
EI

Syria loyalist who served for nine years.
Over the past year, Irawi became
embroiled in highly visible squabbles
with Prime Minister Rafik Hlannr *
members of the media. lrawi's original
six-year term had been lengthened to
nine years by parliament in 1995, but the
72-year-old H rawi had indicated he
wished to go through with his retirement.
Pope: Marriage of
faith, reason needed
VATICAN CITY - Decrying
skeptical postmodern society that
relegates religion and ethics to "the
realm of mere fantasy," Pope John
Paul II called yesterday for a mar-
riage of faith and rational thought in
the search for truth about the human
condition.
In an encyclical titled "Faith and
Reason," the Roman Catholic leader
stressed that the two are not incom-
patible. But he said it is his churc
duty to reject philosophies at od*
with "certitudes of faith."

Doomsday cult
members vanish
DENVER The leader of a
doomsday cult who predicted the
destruction of Denver last weekend has
vanished along with about 50 of his fol-
lowers, raising fears they are bent on
mass suicide.
Followers of Monte Kim Miller's
group, Concerned Christians, have sold
their belongings and abandoned their
homes. Cult watchers believe the group
may be headed to Jerusalem because of
Miller's belief he would die there in
December 1999 and be resurrected.
Miller founded Concerned
Christians in the early 1980s, preaching
against the evils of cults.
Hal Mansfield, director of the Fort
Collins-based Religious Movement
Resource Center, which has been mon-
itoring the Denver-based Concerned
Christians for at least two years, said
Miller might have started the move-
ment as a financial scam. But critics
said the group has transformed itself
into an apocalyptic personality cult.

Miller, claimed that God was using
him as a vehicle to speak to his follow-
ers. After prophesying that the
Apocalypse would begin with an earth-
quake in Denver last Saturday, the cult
leader and about 50 of his discip
dropped from sight.
Feud threatens
Maverick's future
LOSANGELIS-A feud between
the founders of Madonna's Maverick
Records, one of the most successful
start-up labels of the decade, is threat
ening to undercut the label's value if it
goes up for sale next year.
Sources say Maverick co-chair
Freddy DeMann may exit the company
before January with a buyout package
worth more than $20 million.
Representatives for Madonna, DeMarm
and Maverick minority owner Guy
Oseary have been meeting regularly in
Burbank, Calif., to resolve the matter
with senior brass at Time Warner's
Warner Music Group, which owns
percent of Maverick.
