Sarak calls off Syrian peace talks

Los Angeles Times warplanes strafed suspected militant strongholds

JERUSALEM - Israeli Prime Minister Ehud
Barak yes-:erday called off peace talks with
Syria until the Damascus regime reins in Shiite
Muslim guerrillas who killed three Israeli sol-
diers and a senior Lebanese ally.
Barak's ultimatum came amid a fierce escala-
ti of fighting in southern Lebanon and despite
s for restraint from U.S. officials, who have
been struggling to put the negotiations back on
track.
In the worst fighting in months along the
region's last active battlefront, Syrian-backed
guerrillas of the Hezbollah launched rocket and
artillery attacks on Israeli forces and Israel's
proxy militia, the South Lebanon Army. Israeli

in a string of retaliatory airstrikes.
"Israel will not be able to negotiate peace as
long as the Syrians do not restrain the Hezbollah
from acting against the Israeli army in the secu-
rity zone," Barak said in a statement issued after
an emergency Cabinet meeting.
Israel and its allies have occupied the 9-mile-
deep "security zone" in southern Lebanon for
nearly 15 years. Hezbollah is waging a battle to
oust them.
Negotiations between Israel and Syria were
launched in December at the White House amid
much fanfare. The talks were suspended last
month in what U.S. officials insisted was a
momentary glitch. The new skirmishing and
Barak's response yesterday night appear to fur-

be set, but it should not be drastic," he
said.
There are 10 rooms available to stu-
dents organizations in the Michigan
League, the Michigan Union, Pierpont
Commons and at the Trotter House.
The rooms range in capacity from
140 to 600 occupants.
"There is a life-safety code that we
a ys have to follow," League Direc-
tor Bob Yecke said.
"The capacity is determined by the
square footage of the room, the number
of exits and how quickly we can get
people out of the building in an emer-
gence,"he said
"We then plug this into a formula
determined by the federal government
and we determine capacity," Yecke
said.
cke said room capacity is a crucial
isl because in order to determine the
number of pmeople in a room, wrist-
bands are given to participants.
Issues have been raised that
wristbands are not used by all stu-

dent groups
are required

on campus, but they
to be used by parties

sponsored by minority organiza-
tions.
The committee studying the policy
will recommend changes to the policy
to the Office of the Dean of Students
by March 15.
"The people that were outside the
Union protesting are not here," he
said, referring to a protest spon-
sored by the Coalition to Defend
Affirmative Action By Any Means
Necessary of the Union's wristband
policy in November.
"This policy was a reactionary
policy," LSA senior Kevin Jones
said.
"I'm willing to suggest that times
have changed and this policy isn't that
necessary, he said.
"The facility-use policy works, so
we should scrap the dance/party pol-
icy and build from there."
The committee encourages Univer-
sity students to offer their input on
the issue by participating in a student
survey. The survey can be found at

PRIMARY

at a podium with a backdrop plas-
tered with McCain signs.
Concord resident Bill West said
that he supports McCain because of
his strong character, bravery and
integrity, which he said are impor-
tant qualities in a president.
"What he tells you is what he
believes;' West said.
But not all New Hampshire resi-
dents who attended yesterday's rally
are prepared to vote for McCain.
Some citizens there said they were
still undecided.
Liz Pearson, a first-grade school
teacher who attended McCain's
rally in Concord yesterday, said
even though the primary date is
near she is still undecided and has
been following the various candi-
dates as they make their rounds
across the state to learn about each
of their positions.
As a teacher, Pearson said educa-
tion is most important and so far
she finds Gore's plan the most
appealing.
Bush chose a different way to
finish off his New Hampshire pri-
mary campaigning by joining vot-
ers in daily activities such as
bowling.
Bush participated in an old style
of New England candlepin bowling
competition. This form of bowling
uses snaller pins and balls.
Nashua residents showed Bush
how the game worked and played a
game with him. Rather than
address any issues that might con-
cern voters, Bush shook hands and
posed for pictures with the bowlers.
Nashua resident Rick Pothier
brought his daughter to meet the
governor, who made several stops
in the Nashua area.
"I think he's an honest guy,"

Pothier said, adding that he sup-
ports Bush's stance on tax cuts and
education.
Bradley also spent the day final-
izing his statewide primary cam-
paign by attending town meetings
and a rally that featured supporters
such as actor Ron Silver, Boston
Celtics basketball player Jojo
White, Harvard Prof. Cornell West
and several senators.
Supporters shouted with excite-
ment, causing speakers to yell into
the audience their message to vote
for Bradley.
Bradley has visited more than 50
town meetings in the state, meeting
with people to hear their concerns.
Bradley also expressed the
importance of getting voters out to
the polls.
"It is important that New Hamp-
shire passes a message to the rest of
the country that politics as usual is
out, he said rallying that crowd.
Bradley spent time in front of the
crowd getting shouts and cries out
of the crowd and did not respond at
all to any negative remarks Gore
made about him Sunday.
At a rally to support Gore on
Sunday, the vice president counter-
attacked on remarks that Bradley
had made about his opponent's
inconsistent stance on abortion and
campaign finance reform.
Bradley is "a real thinker, a real
person, not a puppet;' said Joan
Stevens, a resident of Goffstown.
Stevens said as a Democrat she
supports Bradley over Gore.
Gore "seems to be spouting party
politics;' Stevens said, adding that
he does not think for himself.
Bradley supporter Jack Singer,
an independent, said if Bradley
didn't get nominated he'd cross
party lines to support McCain.
If neither were nominated he
probably would not vote at all.

MOSCOW - U.S. Secretary of
State Madeleine Albright began a
visit to Moscow yesterday by con-
fronting her hosts over the war in
Chechnya, accusing Russia of using
excessive force and exacerbating its
problems with the region by indis-
criminately targeting civilians.
Igor Ivanov, the Russian foreign
minister, informed Albright that
Moscow would fight Chechen ter-
rorists as it saw fit, whether its
methods were popular or not.
"We have made quite clear that we
think that there has been an incredible
amount of misery iniected upon the

disagreement between two top
diplomats. Albright's tough talk was
in dramatic contrast to the earlier
war in Chechnya, from 1994 to-
1996, when the United States large
ly ignored similar Russian tactics.
Then, however, U.S. officials were,
optimistic about the prospects for
democracy and warm relations with
Russia. Now, doubts have arisen about
both, and the new mood was reflected
in Albright's comments.
The Russian foreign minister, who
was sitting next to her at the joint news
conference, argued that there was no
agreed-upon way to fight terrorism. ,
"Unfortunately international
practice has not yet produced a sin-
