Mideast leaders argue
over truce agreement
Teenagers killed on West Bank as Israeli,
Palestinian leaders accuse each other of
failing to adhere to truce
JERUSALEM (AP) - Israel's prime minister yesterday
accused the Palestinians of failing to implement a truce
agreement, while Palestinian leaders called for expanded
foreign mediation. As the rhetoric ran hot, street clashes
persisted: Two Palestinian teen-agers were killed and a third
was blinded by gunfire.
The truce, in its fifth day, has dampened the overall level
of unrest but has not extinguished it.
About 30 Palestinians were wounded in yesterday's spo-
radic clashes in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, doctors
As Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Palestin-
ian leader Yasser Arafat prepared to head to Washing-
ton for separate meetings with President Clinton, they
remained sharply at odds on how to stop the violence
and revive suspended peace talks.
"We see a certain effort by Chairman Arafat to calm
down the situation, but clearly the results show that there is
no real reduction in the violence," Barak said.
He said the cease-fire is "not being implemented by the
other side ... and we are being forced to act accordingly."
In the evening, Barak's government easily survived
four no-confidence motions in parliament, said parliament
spokesman Giora Pordes. Some were brought by Arab leg-
islators angry over the deaths of about a dozen Israeli Arabs
in riots linked to the Palestinian revolt.
The Palestinians, meanwhile, complained yesterday that
U.S. mediationin Mideast peacemaking has been ineffec-
tive and demanded that the United Nations, the European
Union, Russia and China be included in future talks. The
Palestinians also raised the possibility of an international
"Since the United States has failed to persuade Israel to
implement the agreements, there is a need for other parties
to be involved in this process," Arafat aide Nabil Abur-

at Flint student running with the Reform
Party, said a student perspective is neces-
sary on the board, and he is the one for
Waun said he would like to bring
more attention to the University's Flint
"A lot of students at Flint aren't aware
they have access to the library and facil-
ities in Ann Arbor. Some students feel
shut out from Ann Arbor, and feel the
Flint campus is little more than a com-
munity college," Waun said. "We need to
make the regents spend more time on all
of the campuses to see what is needd."
Laurence Deitch (D-Bloomfield Hills)
has served on the board since 1992.
He said he is most proud of working
to change the University's bylaw con-
cerning its non-discrimination policy to
include same-sex partners.
Deitch said he would like the Mich-
igan legislature to invest more money
into the University.
"Over the years, the state has made a
huge investment in the University and it
has paid off in the quality of life offered
here," Deitch said. "But, the state fund-
ing isn't enough to get the job done if we
want to be as good as we want to be."
Republican candidates Wendy Ander-
son and Suzy Avery did not return sev-
eral phone calls.
Rackham student Tim Maull, running
with the Libertarian Party, said his
involvement in the University helps him
understand student issues.
"I am a student. I understand about the
difficulties of living in a dorm. I spent
my first year in Oxford Housing, where
I was on house concil," Maull said. "I
have been politically active in the com-
munity, especially with the medical mar-
ijuana issue in Ann Arbor."
Maull said the University's investment
portfolio concerns him. Maull said he
would like to lead a discussion on the
"Some corporations do questionable
activities overseas, including violating
human rights. It is important that the
University does not profit by indirectly
violating human rights," Maull said.

become a student representative on the
Trudeau said he would like to fight the
privatization of jobs within the Univer-
sity, as well as support an environmen-
tally sustainable campus.
"The University has been taking a
more corporate mindset but the Univer-
sity is not a corporation. As a student
and a worker, I could represent a lot of
people, especially those concerned about

Achen said that the problem with
exit polls is that they depend on the
willingness of voters to interview.
Voters with less education tend to avoid
exit pollers more than educated voters,

FDA warns against using diet drug
WASHINGTON -- The Food and Drug Administration warned Americ
yesterday not to use dozens of over-the-counter cold remedies or appetite s
pressants until their makers replace an ingredient that could cause hemorrha
strokes, especially in young women.
The ingredient, called phenylpropanolamine or PPA, is found in pro
ranging from Dexatrim to Triaminic.
The FDA said it is taking steps to formally ban PPA, but in the meantime wr
manufacturers asking them voluntarily to immediately quit selling products ci
taining the ingredient.
The risk of a hemorrhagic stroke, or bleeding in the brain, is very small
an individual user. With millions of Americans swallowing PPA every day,
FDA determined the ingredient could be to blame for 200 to 500 strokes j
in people under age 50 - those who typically are too young to be at risk
"We suggest you stop taking the drug immediately and use an alternativ
says an FDA warning issued for consumers yesterday.
Consumers should check the ingredient list of all nonprescription cold rt-
ers for PPA and avoid those products, the FDA said. Instead, they could use
pills containing the ingredient pseudoephedrine, or use nasal sprays.
