RESTAURANTS
Continued from Page 1A
cers will be posing undercover as servers, bartenders
or managers when they enter restaurants to check for
underage drinking.
But the AAPD has sent letters to area restaurants
such as Cottage Inn, Pizza House and Good Time
Charley's informing them of the proposed program.
"They are trying to turn the tables," Pizza House
owner Dennis Tice said, explaining that usually it is the
restaurants that the police target, not underage buyers.
This was the case in September, when AAPD offi-
cers ticketed four local restaurant-bars for not checking
forage identification before serving alcohol. In the raid,
undercover police officers posed as customers and

asked to be served alcohol. Conor O'Neill's, Shalimar
Restaurant, the Parthenon Restaurant and Old
Heidelberg Restaurant were ticketed in the incident.
Tice said AAPD has posed as customers in Pizza
House in the past. They attempted to buy alcohol
without identification, but the restaurant employees
asked to see their IDs and refused to serve them.
"They want to turn some responsibility" on the
underage buyers, said Tice, adding that Pizza House
has a choice in deciding whether it wants to cooperate
with AAPD.
"It is voluntary, we don't have to do it," Tice said.
He said he does plan to cooperate because his restau-
rant isn't in the business to sell alcohol to minors.
"Liquor licenses are hard enough to get. We don't
want to take a chance," Tice said.

Logghe said AAPD has not set a concrete date for
when it will begin entering the restaurants undercover.
An LSA senior who asked not to be identified said
she thinks the new program will alter the behavior of
students. "It seems likely in certain places you might
know whether they usually card or not," she said.
If students know that a police officer may be under-
cover in the restaurant, she said, they may be less like-
ly to attempt to use fake IDs or order alcoholic bever-
ages when underage.
She added that the program would be useful in
restaurants, because many students assume that "in a
restaurant it is more likely that you wouldn't get card-
ed at all," compared to a bar or convenience store
where authorities might be more likely to ask for iden-
tification.

Grand juror says Starr used the facts
L ITTi LI: ROCK, Ark. Using a rare tactic, Kenneth
Starr's prosecutors put a former Whitewater grand juror on
the witness stand yesterday to testify that Starr's investiga-
tors were after "the facts" and not out to get President
Clinton.
One of three ex-grand jurors appearing in Susan
McDougal's criminal contempt trial, Jennifer Castleberry, tes-
tified that when McDougal appeared before the grand jury in
1996, "We wanted to hear what she had to say"
But the Clintons' former Whitewater partner "wouldn't
talk." Clinton
"She wanted to give a statement," Castleberry said. "She
would not allow us to read the statement. She refused to answer the ques-
tions.
Did Castleberry believe the attorneys in Starr's office "were out to get the
Clintons?" prosecutor Julie Myers asked.
"No," Castleberry replied.
Later, she added: "They wanted to give us the facts to determine whether
crimes were committed."

ST. PATRICK
Continued from Page IA
"The place was crazy and wild. People
were screaming and yelling," Dalal said.
Dalal said religious and ethnic rea-
sons didn't motivate her to celebrate St.
Patrick's Day.
"I'm anything but Irish. I don't even
know the meaning of the holiday. I just
love to wear green," she said.
The holiday is celebrated March 17
each year because it is the day when
Patrick, the patron Saint of Ireland, died
in 493 A.D. According to his autobiog-
raphy, Saint Patrick was kidnapped at
age 16 and sold into slavery in Ireland.
He escaped to Britain and later returned
to Ireland, converting the island from
Druidism to Christianity.
The three-leafed shamrock - a com-
mon symbol of St. Patrick's Day - is
found in the artwork of the Celt tribe to
symbolize the divine nature of the trinity.
The symbol was later worn by the Irish
regiments and became the emblem of
rebellion in the 19th Century. England's
Queen Victoria outlawed the symbol,

making it punishable by death by hang-
ing. Today's "wearing of the green" was
translated from shamrocks to wearing
green clothes in the United States.
Father Charles Irvin of St. Mary's
Catholic Church in Ann Arbor said the
holiday does not have the same political
significance it once had.
"In the 1800s, a huge number of Irish
immigrants wanted to show that they
were a significant group in America,"
Irvin said, adding that the Irish are no
longer discriminated against like they
were when large numbers of them first
immigrated to the United States.
"Saint Patrick's Day is now celebrat-
ed like St. Valentine's Day in the United
States'" Irvin said.
LSA first-year student Andrew
Shirvell said when he was a student in
Catholic school he wore green on St.
Patrick's Day every year.
"This year I decided not to wear
green," Shirvell said. "I actually feel a
bit guilty, though, that I'm not wearing
green."
Members of the Students' Party, who
are running in the Michigan Student

Assembly and LSA Student
Government elections next week, wore
green shirts as they passed out cam-
paign flyers on the Diag yesterday. LSA
sophomore Brian Reich said that for the
past three years St. Patrick's Day has
coincided with elections.
"We think it's a fun and festive way to
recognize the holiday and to draw atten-
tion towards our party," Reich said.
The Pierpont Commons Program
Board on North Campus used the holi-
day to its advantage. The group hosted
a jazz concert featuring jazz musicians
from the School of Music last night at
Leonardo's. All proceeds from the event
will go to a scholarship fund for stu-
dents with disabilities.
Music junior Ben Yonas, the pro-
gram's chair, said the group wanted to
do more than just hand out green candy
and carnations and traditionally likes to
hold events on holidays.
"Our musicians really wanted to
donate their services for one night,"
Yonas said. "We also felt that people
would be more inclined to donate their
money to a good cause on a holiday."

Intel does not admit
to monopoly status
WASHINGTON - The govern-
ment approved a legal settlement yes-
terday and disclosed details of its
secret agreement with Intel Corp. that
averted a bitter antitrust showdown
with the world's largest computer
chip-maker.
Under the settlement, approved 3 to 0
by the Federal Trade Commission, Intel
promised to share important technical
details with other companies about its
computer chips, but allowed for excep-
tions in rare circumstances. In return,
Intel was not required to admit it has
monopoly power.
"We are going to be watching"
warned FTC Commissioner Robert
Pitofsky. "I believe Intel is a company
that will follow the rules, but like any
order, we'll be keeping an eye on
whether they're trying to get around it in
any way."
The government's June lawsuit
accused Intel of having monopoly power
and using it to illegally withhold from

three companies advanced technical
details about new chips to "extort" valu-
able technology that the companies had
developed independently.
The company acknowledged it did
most of what the FTC alleged but said its
practices did not violate federal antitr
laws.
Gender segregation
in military opposed
WASHINGTON - Efforts by con-
servatives to separate men and women
during basic military training were
dealt a major- and perhaps lasting -
setback yesterday as a panel convened
by Congress declared that newly
inducted troops would be far betters
in close quarters.
Emboldened by a series of sexual
scandals in boot camps, congressional
conservatives pushed hard in the past
two years for greater segregation, and
last fall set up a study panel they hoped
would further advance their case. -
Contrary to expectations, howeyer,
the panel voted 6 to 2, in favor of recent
moves toward integration.

Defense bill passes

WASHINGTON (AP)--The Senate
gave overwhelming approval on yester-
day to a bill to commit the Pentagon to
building a national defense against lim-
ited ballistic missile attack "as soon as
technologically possible."
The lopsided 97 to 3 vote belied the
years of partisan battling the issue had
generated.
Long a Republican priority, the bill
drew turnabout support from Democrats
and the Clinton administration after dis-
closures of North Korean missile tests
and Chinese weapons espionage.
Republicans welcomed the day-old
Democratic backing and the dropping
of a long-standing veto threat by
President Clinton, although they
ridiculed the timing.
"I'm glad to hear he's now dropped
his veto threat. But as usual, his pledge
comes a little late and falls short;" said

Sen. Bob Smith (R-N.H.), a GOP pres-
idential aspirant.
Democrats said several amendments,
including one pledging the United
States would continue to seek nuclear
arms reductions in Russia, made the
legislation more palatable.
"The bill is now acceptable to the pres-
ident," said Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.),
who was the chief Democratic opponent
in the past. The earlier version could have
violated terms of the 1972 Anti-Ballistic
Missile treaty, Levin said.
Ending the impasse helped Democrats
defuse an emerging GOP political cam-
paign against them on national security
grounds, a campaign that intensified in
recent days with reports that China may
have stolen technology from the Los
Alamos nuclear laboratory in the 1980s
that could help them improve their ballis-
tic missile program.

Yugosaly army
prepares for NATO
PRISTINA, Yugoslavia - Fearing a
possible NATO attack, the Yugoslav
army bolstered its combat readiness,
moving thousands of troops closer to
Kosovo amid reports yesterday that
peace talks in France were on the brink
of failing.
The war preparations also came as
European Union forensic experts
issued a report saying that dozens of
ethnic Kosovo Albanians slain in
January appeared to be civilians, not
combatants.
Yugoslav army troops were setting
up anti-aircraft missiles in the moun-
tains northwest of Kosovo's capital,
Pristina, rebel leader Suleiman Selimi
said yesterday in his first interview
since being appointed supreme com-
mander of the Kosovo Liberation Army
last month.
Speaking to The Associated Press
and another reporter at his home,
Selimi said KLA fighters dug in at the
Cicavica Mountains saw the missiles
being unloaded from several covered

trucks.
Senior officials with the
Organization for Security and
Cooperation in Europe said the mis-
siles could be the Yugoslav version
heat-seeking, Soviet-built short-rage
missile that monitors have seen on
regional roads.
Pope backs his first
pop CD and video
VATICAN CITY - Taking aim at
the pop charts, Sony Classical
Vatican Radio kicked off a CD-110

time artist with some big-time backing:
Pope John Paul II.
Producers will release the first 1 mjl-
lion copies of "Abba Pater" around tl}e
world Tuesday, timing it for the Easter
holidays and the upcoming 2,000th
anniversary of Christianity.
The pope got his copy, the first oe
produced, at his general audience yes-
terday in St. Peter's Square.
