Israeli woman killed in ambush

The Baltimore Sun
JERUSALEM - Until dawn yesterday, truce
talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority
seemed as if they might finally take place. No guns
had been fired by either side for 12 hours. Israeli
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon even acknowledged the
possibility that the Palestinians would one day have
their own state.
That period of hope ended shortly after dawn
when Palestinian gunmen ambushed a car in the Jor-
dan Valley, killing an Israeli woman and wounding
her husband. The militant group Islamic Jihad,
which opposes talks between the two sides, claimed

responsibility for the attack.
The cease-fire meeting - that was canceled Sun-
day by Israel hours before it was about to take place
- was canceled yet again yesterday.
Officials said such a meeting is now unlikely
before late Thursday, the end of Yom Kippur, the
Jewish Day of Atonement that begins at sundown
Wednesday. Sharon said through a spokesman that
the 48 hours of "absolute quiet" that he has said
must precede any meeting between Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat
had to start again from zero.
On Sunday, "for the first time, there were signs
Arafat was making an effort to thwart terror. But this

morning there was another shooting attack," Sharon
told visiting French Foreign Minister Hubert Vedrine
yesterday. "The meeting between Peres and Arafat
was conditional on the total cessation of terror
attacks."
The latest delay comes despite U.S. officials' urg-
ing that the Peres-Arafat meeting go forward to help
smooth the way for including Arab states in a U.S.-,
led anti-terrorism coalition.
The talks' on-again-off-again status has become
an obvious source of tension between Sharon, who
believes a meeting should be a reward for ending the
violence, and Peres, who believes a meeting is the
way to end the violence.

HIJACKERS

vice workers and mechanics.
Initially, FAA officials said the
order had been given. But late yes-
terday, the agency said it was still!
considering the idea and hadn't for-
mally acted. The agency has asked
airports and airlines to make sure
that identification badges used by
employees with secure access are
valid.
In Florida, court records in
Broward County showed one of the
19 hijack suspects was wanted on an
arrest warrant at the time of the
attacks.
A bench warrant was issued June
4 for Mohamed Atta for failing to
appear in court on a charge of dri-
ving without a license. Atta's Florida
driver's license was revoked on Aug.
23.

"There's over 200,000 warrants in
the system,' county sheriff's spokes-
woman Veda Coleman-Wright said.
"So naturally, you're going to make
sure you're going out and getting
those wanted for murder. This is not
one that's going to jump out at you."
In Virginia, an FBI affidavit filed
in federal court alleged that as many
as five hijackers - Hani Hanjour,
Salem Al-Hamzi, Majed Moqed,
Ahmed Saleh Alghamdi and Abdu-
laziz Alomari - went to the Depart-
ment of Motor Vehicles in Arlington,
Va., on Aug. 2.
All five were at the office that day
to "conduct transactions relating to
Virginia identification cards," the
affidavit said.
The affidavit alleges that Villalo-
bos and a second man - his identity
not revealed because he is a confi-
dential witness - signed identity
papers for the hijackers.

DRAFT
Continued from Page 1
According to the Selective Service
System, the agency responsible -for
administering the draft, if the draft was
reinstated today there would be fewer
reasons to excuse a man from service.
Also, if the draft was put back into
effect, the military would continue to
only draft men.
"If women were not and had not
been joining the Army at the rate they
have been in the past years, they might
have had to reinstate the draft before
now," Marwil said.
"Some years have more volunteers
than others," Marwil said, adding that
the number of recruits is somewhat
dependent on the state of the economy.
If the economy is doing well, young
people may be less-inclined to join the
army because of high-paying job
opportunities.
Marwil said that with such a pros-
pering economy during the past few
years, the armed forces have had some
trouble with recruiting.
However, the number of people

interested in applications for the armed
forces nationwide has increased in the
past two weeks, said Commander Jef-
frey Babos, the executive officer of the
University's Reserve Officers Training
Corps. unit.
Babos said that a military draft is
not likely to happen. "They have active
and inactive reserves and guard per-
sonnel," he said, referring to the
resources available to the U.S. armed
forces. "I don't see (a draft) as a plau-
sible scenario," he said.
Reeds said she is currently thinking
about joining the military after graduat-
ing to help finance her law school edu-
cation. "I'm still thinking about it, but
in a different light with what's hap-
pened and what may happen," she said.
"I know I would never be mobilized,
so I don't have that fear, but just being
in the military when we're involved in
something like this gives you pause to
think," she said.
LSA senior Ha Nguyen said his sup-
port for the government and President
Bush has increased within the past
weeks, but that would change if the
draft was reinstated.

HEADLINES FROM4 AROUND THE WORLD s Y-
NEW YORK
Wall Street rebounds, but still unstable
Stocks surged higher yesterday, carrying the Dow Jones industrials up more
than 360 points, as bargain hunters returned to help Wall Street rebound from
one of its worst weeks ever. But the market remained extremely nervous, and no
one was betting that the gains would hold.
Investors will be wary of making or sticking by any major moves until it's
clearer how the government will retaliate for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, ana-
lyst said. They are also trying to determine how much and for how long the
economy will suffer. The economic impacts of the attacks have already been felt
as companies have warned of weaker profits and laid off thousands of workers as
they expect consumers to spend and borrow less and take fewer vacations.
According to preliminary calculations, the Dow closed yesterday up 367.49,
or 4.5 percent, at 8,603.30, after dropping 1,369.70 last week, its biggest-ever
weekly decline. The Dow was up as much as 413.51 in the last hour yesterday
before giving back some of its gain, which was still large enough to be the blue
chips' fifth largest daily point gain.
Like the Dow, the market's broader indicators bounced back after falling sharply
last week, the first week of trading following the attacks, to their lowest levels in
three years. The Nasdaq composite index rose 75.85, or 5.3 percent, to 1,499.04.
BROOKWOOD, Ala.
Mine explosion kills at least 3; 9 missing
An explosion in a coal mine killed at least three miners and left nine
others missing and feared dead, a spokesman said. If the deaths are con-
firmed, it would be the worst mining accident in the United States since
1984.
Some of the victims were volunteer rescue team members who went into
the mine, the nation's-deepest, after a cave-in.
Four people were injured in the Blue Creek No. 5 mine, one critically,
said Kyle Parks, spokesman for Walter Industries.
Federal mine safety officials suspended rescue operations Monday
because of fires still burning inside the mine, said Dennis Hall, a
spokesman for company subsidiary Jim Walter Resources Inc.
A cave-in happened Sunday during maintenance operations at the mine
36 miles southwest of Birmingham. said Parks. corporate communications
director for the company based in Tampa, Fla.
Hall said 25 to 30 workers were performing maintenance work in the
mine at the time of the cave-in.

ASSETS'

has a personal fortune estimated at $300
million.
Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill said
the order should send a message to any-
one who does business with terrorists:
"Cooperate in this fight or we will
freeze your U.S. assets."
Administration officials acknowl-
edged that the immediate impact of
Bush's executive order is hard to gauge.
"It may be an imperfect solution ...
but it is necessary to start with the
documented, recorded international
banking system," said David
Aufhauser, the Treasury Department's
general counsel.
One of the big challenges is track-
ing money that moves through an
underground banking system in the
Middle East and parts of Asia, where
large amounts of cash change hands in
a paperless network based on personal
trust.
In addition to bin Laden, the admin-

istration's list names Ayman al-
Zawahri, a Cairo surgeon believed by
terrorism experts to be bin Laden's top
deputy. Al-Zawahri, a suspect in the
1981 assassination of Egyptian Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat, is believed to be
operating in Afghanistan, as is bin
Laden.
Also listed are the Egyptian Islamic
Jihad, the Libyan Islamic Fighting
group, the Armed Islamic Group and
the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan,
a little-known group that Bush men-
tioned in his address to Congress and
the nation last week.
The United States is seeking per-
mission to deploy U. S. forces in
Uzbekistan, which borders
Afghanistan to the north. Its president,
Islam Karimov, has been fighting the
group.
Bush's order listed three charitable
organizations that the government
said are funding terrorist acts:
Mukhtab al-Khidamat/Al Kifah, Wafa
Humanitarian Organization and Al
Rashid Trust.

RESI DENTS
Continued from Page 1
Connie Burke, a former Universi-
ty student, met her husband while at
school and decided to stay in Ann
Arbor after graduation.
"For the most part it's a positive
place to be. We still love football Sat-
urday and being around young people.
Sometimes it's even nice to be relied
upon," Burke said.
As far as partying goes, she said she
doesn't mind the noise as long as it is
limited to the weekend. In the 20 years
Burke and her husband have lived on
Fourth Avenue, they have only made a
few complaints to police, and in all
cases, they did so after asking the stu-
dents to comply first, she said. Burke
also said she sees more alcohol con-
sumption in recent years then ever

before.
For students who live next door to
families, having late parties seems to be
their only concern.
"There is one guy who lives on the
corner who warned us to wrap up our
party before two," said Elodie Baquerot,
an LSA sophomore who lives on Divi-
sion Avenue. "He was nice about it but
whenever we throw a party we have to
keep himin mind."
One almost trivial issue many older
Ann Arbor residents have with students
has nothing to do with disrespectful
behavior. "I share my driveway with the
kids next door and every year their cars
are nicer then mine." Burke said.
"Look at all of these sport utility vehi-
cles outside of the fraternities. It's
impractical. They could easily walk or
bike to their classes from here. I bike to
my classes," Evans said.
PILL
Continued from Page 1
drinking increases to two extra pills
after six drinks and another two pills
after three or four hours of drinking.
The makers of Chaser, Living
Essentials of Walled Lake in Oakland
County, suggest not drinking more
than six drinks.
Also, the pill must be ingested
before drinking, so immediate relief
for hangovers isn't guaranteed by the
medicine.
"Two radio stations, 96.3 and 88.7,
have been advertising it all summer,"
LSA senior Trevor King said. "I was
the advocate for it to all my friends,
but all the buzz about it fizzled."
"Two capsules work for up to six
drinks. I wouldn't have a hangover if I
just had six drinks," one LSA student
said.
"And I wouldn't want to take pills
every three or four hours. Besides, I
think I know what works best for me."
"I tried an orange, 'buzzer' drink
that helped-my headache a little bit,
but I could still feel the hangover," a
Business junior added. "And the pill
did the same thing."
These students did not want their
'names used in this article because they
are under 21.
Since Chaser is a dietary supple-
ment, clinical tests to prove its effec-
tiveness were not required of its
producer, which asserts that 15 years
of development for the pill confirm its
efficacy. Since many doctors have not
heard about the over-the-counter solu-
tion, the pill's true benefits aren't cer-
tain.
"Even if it works, it promotes fur-
ther drinking," said Dr. Robert Win-
field, interim director and internal
medicine specialist at-University
Health Services.
"When drinking excessively, the
harm to oneself can include liver dam-
age."
Winfield expressed his concern for
students' taking the pills as a means to
continue drinking, a habit that Living
Essentials advises against.
"I wouldn't try a pill that isn't
shown to be helpful. I'll stay with tak-
ing Advil with lots of water" said one
Kinesiology student.

AN JOSE, Calif.
apster agrees to
pay music publishers
Napster Inc. yesterday agreed to pay
$26 million for distributing unautho-
rized music in the past and made a
deal that could eventually allow song-
writers and music publishers to offer
their music to paling Napster users.
The tentative agreement would settle a
lawsuit filed by the National Music Pub-
lishers' Association. It must be approved
by a judge, the association's board of
directors and individual publishers.
Napster allowed users to swap
music online at no cost until it shut
down July 2. The company was
expected to begin allowing users this
summer to get songs for a fee, but
Napster chief executive Konrad
Hilbers said yesterday the pay service
will start later this year.
'The free service shut down after
Napster was sued to stop users from
collecting copyrighted music without
permission.
NEW YORK
Actors, singers raise
$150M from telethon
Appeals by Hollywood actors and.
musicians during an unprecedented
telethon last week generated more than
$150 million in pledges to benefit fami-
lies of the World Trade Center and Pen-
tagon attack victims. The money will
be distributed through the United Way
with no administrative costs deducted,
organizers said yesterday.
The pledges were made through 7

a.m. yesterday to a website or to tele-
phone numbers staffed by more than
38,000 volunteers and automated oper-
ators in the United States and Canada.
"America: A Tribute to Heroes" was
shown on 35 broadcast and cable net-
works simultaneously Friday and was
seen by almost 60 million viewers.
By contrast, the Live Aid concerts
and Band Aid all-star Christmas
recording during the 1980s raised a
reported $110 million in relief for
African famine victims.
WASHINGTON
Alcohol-related car
accidents increase
The number of people killed by
drunken drivers increased last year for
the first time in five years, according to
federal data released yesterday.
Overall highway deaths increased
slightly in 2000 to 41,812, up from
41,717 in 1999, according to the
National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration. Forty percent of those,
or 16,653, involved alcohol, up from 38
percent, or 15,976, the previous year.
It is only the second time alcohol-
related deaths have increased since
1986, when 24,045 people were killed.
The number of deaths rose 4 percent
from 1994 to 1995; although an. over-
all rise in the number of deaths kept
the percentage of deaths that involved
alcohol at the same level.
Over the past two decades, auto safety
advocates have pushed successfully for
tougher impaired-driving laws and made
drinking and driving a social taboo.
