Despite comparisons some made this week to
Michigan's defensive until of 1997, that unit didn't give up
a fourth-quarter touchdown until it held a 34-0 lead over
then-No.2 Penn State - it's ninth game of the season.
Moss' score was the third this year's group of "Suspects"
allowed. It was enough to make Saturday's game likely to
be the closest the Wolverines will get to the one national
championship trophy that has always eluded them.
The coaches' poll trophy was the one of the four nation-
al championship trophies that Nebraska won in 1997. It
was on display on the sidelines of Saturday's loss.
Fitting, because that's the same place the Wolverines
will be to watch the figurative national title chase play out.

AROUND THE NATION
Nuclear test ban vote may be delayed
WASHINGTON -- The White House dispatched Cabinet members yestcr-
day to press the Senate to put off voting on a nuclear test ban treaty headed for
rejection, saying a defeat would endanger nonproliferation efforts.
One Republican opponent, Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona, voicing widespread
GOP concerns about verification, said he welcomed a chance "to go back t
the drawing board." He predicted certain defeat of the Comprehensive Test Ban
Treaty if the expceted vote tomorrow goes forward.
Three Cabinet members and the president's top military officer, pleading the
administration's case on talk shows yesterday, said rejecting the treaty would
prevent the United States from taking the lead in halting the global spread of
nuclear weapons.
"We are in a situation right now where we're about to send a signal to the rest
of the world that we are not as serious about controlling the spread of nuclear
weapons as we should be," Defense Secretary William Cohen said on NBC's
"Meet the Press"
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said on ABC's "This Week" that
the United States needs "a tool that will prevent the other countries fror
testing. We believe that we have a reliable stockpile" of nuclear weapons

should be very concerned in promoting
justice,' Rivers said.
Congress has debated several pieces of
legislation dealing with the peace
process. Rivers said some U.S. lawmak-
ers are taking too active a role in Israel's
affairs.
The Foreign Operations Bill, which
would designate nearly two-thirds of S3
billion in U.S. aid to Egypt and Israel for
military assistance rather than economic
support, passed in the House of
Representatives, but President Clinton
has vowed to veto those numbers, Rivers
said.
Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) has
proposed a resolution to recognize
Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel,

and Rep. Jim Saxton (R-N.J.) has spon-
sored a resolution to move the U.S.
embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
"I am very uncomfortable with the
role that some members of Congress
want to play," Rivers said.
"Both sides agree that they want the
United States to be an honest broker of
peace," she said. "Congress itself takes
positions when we are supposed to be
honest brokers of peace."
LSA senior Will Youmans, president
of the Arab-American Anti-
Discrimination Committee said he hopes
to work with the Democratic party to
sponsor a similar discussion on campus
in the future.
"For too long one viewpoint has dom-
inated the discussion," Youmans said.
"The Israeli viewpoint dominates in the
U.S."

Deputy Counsel General of Israel, David Rote, speaks at the Michigan Union
yesterday.
