HUSSEIN

vious experience in politics. "May the man rest in peace.
. The soul of King Hussein will remain with us and be
with us and won't disappear from our hearts and our
souls."
In a testament to Hussein's ability to build bridges in a
region that often seems intent on destroying them, his funer-
al reportedly will be attended not only by Netanyahu and
other Israeli leaders but also by representatives from Iraq,
Syria and Saudi Arabia, which are hostile to the Jewish
state.
A funeral procession will carry Hussein's casket through
downtown Amman to the Royal Palace grounds around noon
today. There it will be placed in the "throne room" for a brief
viewing by world leaders.

s lfe of Hussein
That will be followed by a ceremony in the palace mosque,
after which the king's body will be entombed on the palace
grounds.
Hussein, who was crowned king in May 1953 upon turning
18, nine months after his father Talal abdicated for health rea-
sons, had survived assassination attempts, wars - including
one that cost him the West Bank and Jerusalem - and inter-
Arab feuding only to be felled by a cancer that raged through
his body in the past six months.
During Abdullah's swearing-in ceremony at the Jordanian
Parliament yesterday afternoon, the only sound for a few
long moments was of muffled sobs. Approaching the cham-
ber's red throne, wearing his family's trademark red-
checked head scarf, the young monarch stopped before an
oil portrait of his late father dressed in formal military
regalia, threw back his shoulders and stood at attention for
more than five seconds.

Severs said its visibility will force
people to notice supporters of the
community.
LSA senior and Visibility Week par-
ticipant Andy McKenzie said although
he feels some of the week's events -
such as the Kiss-In - are too invasive,
the week as a whole offers a chance
for members of the LGBT community
to make people aware of their pres-
ence.
The Kiss-In, an activity regularly
held during Visibility Week and
scheduled for Friday, invites partici-
pants to show their support in front of
friends and observers in the Diag.
The week is "a good compromise
between forcing someone to accept
you and just being yourself,"
McKenzie said.

MARATHON
Continued from Page IA
time this weekend.
"I found out about it from my next-
door neighbor, and I thought it would
be a great way to get involved," Hazra
said.
Participants also played basketball,
made mittens and Valentine's Day cards,
sang and took part in "Olympic events"
including relays and races.
The marathon began as the dancers
ran under the M-Club banner that is held
up for the football players in Michigan
Stadium before kickoff at each game.
"It was great, we all jumped up and
touched the banner as we ran through,"
LSA sophomore Neil Kindra said.
The marathon is a 25-year-old event
that originated at Penn State University.
Currently, more than 18 colleges and
universities nationwide participate in the
Dance Marathon. The events can last
from 24 to 48 hours. The goal for each
school is to raise funds for its local
Children's Miracle Network hospital.
Business senior Monisha Kapila is a
Dance Marathon veteran.
"Last year I was a moraler, but this
year I decided to dance," Kapila said.
"It's a lot of fun. All of my roommates
are here to cheer each other on."
Kapila said the best part of the
marathon was a little girl who sang the
National Anthem during the opening
ceremonies.
"When she sang, it reminded me of
what we are here for," Kapila said.
The moralers, who break up the event
into shifts, play a vital role in keeping
the dancers motivated.
The easiest shifts are in the beginning,
but toward the end of the marathon the
job gets "pretty tough," said Engineering
first-year student Brian Johnson.
Engineering sophomore Elisha Vogel
said she wasn't sure how she was going
to be able to endure the long event.
"The 30 hours seems kind of scary,
but I ate some pasta and got a lot of sleep
(Friday) night," Vogel said.
Vogel added that seeing children who
are assisted by the Children's Miracle
Network inspired her to complete the
marathon.
Sarma said the dancers' strong sense
of the impact they can have on the lives
of children inspires them."It's the whole
concept of mind over matter," Sarma
said.
Another inspiration for participants
was the story of Briggs McMichael
Parry, who has been helped through the
funds raised by the marathon.
Holding back tears, Parry's mother
stood on stage with her family in front
of the marathoners and told her son's
story.
When Parry was only four months old,
his heart stopped beating for more than
30 minutes when doctors at Beaumont
Hospital saved Parry's life.
Each day the struggle is a little easier,
Parry's mother said, and the devastating
twist in her life has taught her and her
family to take life one day at a time.
"When you come that close to losing a
child, your whole perspective on things
changes," Parry said.
Parry said her son's accomplishments
during therapy have turned her feelings
of devastation into ones of hope.
Just before the Parry family left the
stage, Parry's father praised the partici-
pants and shared his feelings of grati-
tude.

NASA comet chaser
to bring back dust
CAPE CANAVERAL - A comet-
chasing spacecraft named Stardust rock-
eted away yesterday on a seven-year, 3
billion-mile quest to bring back precious
comet dust.
NA Stardust began its formidable
journey one day late, soaring into a clear
afternoon sky aboard a Boeing Delta
rocket. A last-minute radar problem
Saturday caused the delay.
Launch controllers applauded and
punched the air when, a half-hour after
liftoff, the final stage of the rocket pro-
pelled Stardust into a solar orbit in pur-
suit of Comet Wild-2.
"It's most exciting to get this beauti-
ful spacecraft on its way," said Stardust's
chief scientist, Donald Brownlee, a
University of Washington astronomer.
NASA's Stardust mission is the first
attempt to gather material from beyond
the moon and return it to Earth.
It is also the first time NASA has sent
a robot on an extraterrestrial pickup and
delivery mission. The last time the

agency went after samples in outer space
was Apollo 17 in 1972, the last of the
manned lunar landings.
"Not only do we have to get to where
we're going ... but then we've got to turn
around and come home again," said Carl
Pilcher, NASA's science director f4
solar system exploration.

WASHINGTON - Hammering
home the need for a drug-control
strategy that measures success and
failure, the Clinton administration is
announcing a five-part plan
designed to cut the size of the
nation's drug problem in half
2007.
In a three-volume report to
Congress, White House drug policy
director Barry McCaffrey said
drugs cost the country more than
14,000 lives annual, despite a
nationwide effort that includes close
to $18 billion spent this year by the
federal government.

AROUND THE NATION
U.S. asserts right to bomb facilities
WASHINGTON - The Clinton administration now asserts the right to bomb
government facilities in nations that provide sanctuary to international terrorists, a
significant escalation of U.S. attempts to thwart terrorism.
"We may not just go in a strike against a terrorist facility; we may choose to
retaliate against the facilities of the host country, if that host country is a knowin
cooperative sanctuary," Richard Clarke, President Clinton's coordinator for couW
terterrorism, told The Associated Press.
In an interview last week, Clarke described the policy that marks a departure
from the tactics employed last August when U.S. cruise missiles struck at alleged
terrorist strongholds in Afghanistan and Sudan.
Now the administration contends it could broaden such an attack to include gov-
ernment buildings and assets in nations that knowingly harbor terrorists.
The Clinton administration has warned nations that protect terrorist groups before.
"Countries that persistently host terrorists have no right to be safe havens;'
Clinton told the nation Aug. 20, the day the United States launched scores of cruise
missiles at suspected terrorist targets in Afghanistan and Sudan.
But prior to Clarke's comments, no one in the administration had made the lea
from a general denunciation of harboring terrorists to an explicit threat that gob
ernments may find their own facilities attacked if they do so.

Kosovo peace tals
continue in France
RAMBOUILLET, France - Serb
officials and Kosovo Albanians agreed
on principles that would keep the
embattled province inside Yugoslavia
for at least three more years as they met
separately yesterday with international
mediators at a French chateau.
Getting down to work after
Saturday's ceremonial opening of the
peace talks, the mediators presented
Kosovo's warring factions with a
plan worked out by the six-nation
Contact Group. The agreement con-
tains 10 basic principles, including
keeping what remains of Yugoslavia
intact.
That means Kosovo's ethnic
Albanians have to give up their demand
for independence for their province -
at least during a three-year interim peri-
od. Both a Serb negotiator and a
Western mediator said all sides had
accepted those principles.
"It's a good step forward," a Western
mediator said, speaking on condition of
anonymity.

Still, he added that the tough part
will be working out just how broad the
Kosovo autonomy will be.
The peace negotiations are being
held in seclusion at the*14th-Centui-
Chateau de Rambouillet, official sun*
mer home of French presidents, and it
was not possible to confirm the
Albanian acceptance directly.
Russia protests
NATO expansion
MUNICH - Led by the United
States, NATO is intent on "destructi
of the existing world order," a senioT
Russian official declared in yesterday's
gloomy close to an otherwise celebra-
tory European conference.
Yevgeny Gusarov, the deputy foreign
minister of Russia, told the Munich
Conference on Security Policy that the
North Atlantic Treaty Organization
should not even think of expanding
after it inducts Poland, Hungary and the
Czech Republic at an April summit in
Washington.
