smoking are practically non-existent,
due in part to the fact that many col-
lege smokers are not interested in
eliminating smoking from their diet,
said Janet Zilasko, associate director
for University Health Services.
"We previously had smoking cessa-
tion programs but we had very low
student interest," Zilasko said. "A lot
of the times, students are not at the
point of deciding to quit."
Many college students have picked
up the habit fairly recently, Zilasko
added, and they're less likely to con-
sider smoking a problem.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Newly
returned U.N. weapons inspectors
plan to resume work this morning in
Iraq, beginning with routine checks
of the monitoring gear they left
behind when they departed for
Bahrain a week ago and building
towards more sensitive inspections
that could test Iraqi cooperation,
officials said yesterday.
Nearly 90 members of the U.N.
weapons team returned to Iraq by plane
and bus, arriving at their compound
outside Baghdad at about 1:30 p.m.
yesterday with a truckload of duffel
bags and equipment boxes.
They promptly unsealed doors
they had secured when they left and
began setting up computers and
other equipment that had been disas-
"We are back. We are ready to
work immediately," said Jaakko
Ylitalo, the UN's senior weapons
inspector here, as he and the rest of
the group unloaded from a military
transport plane at Habaniya Airport,
60 miles from Baghdad. About 150
U.N. humanitarian workers who had
been evacuated to Amman, Jordan
have returned to the Iraqi capital over
the past two days.
The crisis over stalled weapons
inspections led U.S. and British forces
to threaten a campaign of airstrikes that
was narrowly averted Saturday when
Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein agreed to
resume cooperation with the U.N. disar-

they will try to resume where they left
off in August. That was when Iraq
abruptly halted new inspections in the
midst of a meeting with Richard Butler,
head of the U.N. commission estab-
lished to oversee Iraq's disarmament.
Monitoring of previously inspected
sites continued for nearly three months,
but the Iraqis stopped that as well on
Oct. 31, setting world opinion firmly
On returning to Iraq, the inspectors
will begin checking and adjusting video
cameras, air samplers and other equip-
ment at roughly 40 Iraqi facilities with
the potential to produce weapons. In
perhaps a week or more, teams of
experts from other countries will arrive
to begin new site inspections that could
provide a key measure of whether Iraq
will live up to its pledge last weekend to
U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan to
"This is certainly an opportunity to
get on with the business we are here to
do," said Caroline Cross, a spokesper-
son for the Baghdad Verification and
Monitoring Center, the field office
established by the United Nations to
ensure Iraq fulfills disarmament
promises it made at the end of the 1991
Persian Gulf War.
"Full and unfettered access means
going where we want to go and seeing
what we want to see," Cross said.
"I'm sure we will want to go to the
sites we've been denied access to all

faculty team members.
"The research we produce is vital to
the University, and they are dismissing
the research and the fact that we do 50
percent of the teaching;' Odier-Fink
The University also dealt with previ-
ous GEO proposals yesterday by offer-
ing an option to pay for portions of
GEO's affirmative action platform and
a recalculation of weekly work hours,
by taking the cost out of wage rates,
"They're not willing to pay for
anti-discrimination policies, and
this shows us that they are not will-
ing to actively pursue this goal,"
Gamble said GEO is misinterpreting
the intent of the counterproposal
because the University only tentatively
tried to allocate funds to various GEO
proposals, rather than representing
them as portions of graduate employee
"We don't have an unlimited source
of funding to settle this contract,"
Gamble said. "All we did was illustrate
the cost of these initiatives."
In response to frustration at the
bargaining table, the GEO Stewards
Council probably will vote to open
the meetings to all GEO members

Fed moves to stop economic slowdowit
WASH INGTON - The Federal Reserve moved to protect the economy yesier-
day by cutting interest rates for the third time in seven weeks but signaled to Wall
Street not to expect any more reductions soon.
After meeting privately, Federal Reserve Chair Alan Greenspan and his col-
leagues announced they had cut two benchmark interest rates, each by a quarto
percentage point. The rate charged among banks on overnight loans fell to 4.4
percent and the rate on the Fed's own loans fell to 4.5 percent.
Major banks responded by cutting their prime lending rates to 7.75 percent..That
will translate into cheaper monthly payments on a variety of consumer and busi-
ness loans, including credit-card balances and auto loans.
Wall Street reacted favorably at first, but then read the fine print. The Dow Jones
industrial average shot up 75 points from Monday's close but then finished down
25 points at 8,986.
In its statement, the Fed said, with the latest cut, "financial conditions can rea-
sonably be expected to be consistent with fostering sustained economic expansion
while Keeping inflationary pressures subdued."
Economists say that virtually rules out another rate cut at the Fed's next sche -
uled meeting on Dec. 22, unless there's unforeseen deterioration in the economy4
