Wolfe said she has tried several
different drugs to deal with her
ymptoms, but it was only when she
was part of a government project to
test the medical effects of marijuana

that she found relief.
Wolfe said she was initially frus-
trated with her court-appointed
lawyer, Jeffrey Orchard, who she
blamed for the trial spanning more
than a week instead of the expected
one-day duration.
But Wolfe said she is grateful for
his efforts.
"Were it not for him, I wouldn't
have gotten that verdict," she said.

"I wanted to see the action," Udek-

Couzens does not contain a sprinkler
system, Brown said, but residence halls
are not required to have them. Brown
added that the alarm system in Couzens
was replaced two years ago.
Breslin said the building's stand
pipes and alarms are "average" fire
prevention equipment. Even though
AAFD contained the fire in less than
30 minutes, firefighters had additional
work because water from the fire
hydrant leaked onto Ann Street and
formed into a sheet of ice. AAFD fire
fighters then distributed sand, salt and
Ice-ban to melt the ice so the street
could be reopened for vehicles.

NASA declares shuttle safe for launch
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - With only hours remaining before liftoff,
NASA yesterday declared space shuttle Endeavour's engines safe to fly despite
lingering uncertainty over two fuel pump seals.
The announcement kept Endeavour on track for a launch this afternoon on:an
Earth-mapping mission. Thick clouds, however, could still force a delay.
Shuttle managers ordered an exhaustive review of seals in Endeavour's fuel
turbopumps late last week after a defective seal turned up in one of Discovery'
main engines.
The bad seal should have been thrown away as a factory reject, but instead
was installed in a fuel pump that flew on Discovery six weeks ago. It also'few
on Discovery in October 1998 - the flight that returned John Glenn to orbit -
and on Endeavour earlier that year.
NASA was able to determine, through documents, that 16 of 18 seal segnents
on Endeavour's fuel pumps are certified and good. The paperwork on the wo
remaining seals is missing.
Even though shuttle managers cannot prove the two seals are certified for
flight, shuttle managers concluded yesterday afternoon that Endeavour's engines
are safe and voted unanimously to proceed with the launch as planned.
Shuttle program manager Ron Dittemore said the likelihood of another defectivf
seal turning up on one of Endeavour's three engines is "very, very, very low"

WASHINGTON - With robust

cities, according to a Syracuse Univer-

Phoenix was the only one with an A

Report: Lower AIDS
levels decrease spreaW
SAN FRANCISCO - An encour-
aging study suggests that people with
very low levels of the AIDS virusypin
their blood are unlikely to spread HIV
to others.
The new study looked at sedal
transmission of HIV in rural Uganda.
The doctors followed 415 heterosexual
couples in which one partner was
infected with HIV and one was not.
The study found that the higher thN
level of HIV in the infected person's
blood, the higher the risk of passing on
the virus through sex.
But, for several reasons, the condi-
tions studied in Africa do not precisely
mirror the U.S. AIDS situation. Unpro-
tected sex with an HIV-infected person
probably always carries some risk,:no
matter how low their virus level.

Israelis, Palestinians
set accord deadline
CAIRO, Egypt - The Israelis and
Palestinians have set an ambitious
Feb. 13 deadline for an outline of a
final accord that would solve the
thorniest issues dividing them: The
return of Palestinian refugees, the bor-
ders of an independent Palestinian
state and the status of Jerusalem,
among others.
Negotiators met secretly for two
hours yesterday in an undisclosed
location. The talks were expected to
last 10 days.
In Cairo, meanwhile, Egyptian
President Hosni Mubarak indicated he
would do his best to try to prod along
the Israeli-Palestinian dialogue,
according to a senior Israeli official in
Prime Minister Ehud Barak's delega-
tion. The official, who spoke on con-
dition of anonymity, said Mubarak has
already proven his ability to influence
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
"The prime minister told Mubarak
he must emphasize to the Palestinians

that this is a crucial time to bring our
positions together, not to sit and wait,
or assume the Americans will sive
our problems," the official said.
Barak successfully revived talks
with Syria and the Palestinians las
year, only to see both tracks falteri
recent weeks. Both partners are now
accusing him of not taking iheir
demands seriously.
6 more victims of
Hezbollah found
ISTANBUL, Turkey - Police

search for suspected victims of a radi-
cal Islamic group, Turkey's Anaiblia
news agency reported.
The four bodies and the sks of
human bones apparently belonging to
two people were discovered ii the
southeastern city of Diyarbakir, bring-
ing the number of presumed Hezbol-
lah victims found to 48.
