ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - An unknown
Pakistani organization yesterday claimed in an
e-mail message to be holding captive an Amer-
ican journalist who disappeared Wednesday.
The electronic message included four pho-
tographs purported to depict Wall Street Jour-
nal reporter Daniel Pearl, 38, who has been the
subject of a nationwide police search. In return
for the release of Pearl, whom the group
accused of being a CIA agent, the e-mail
demanded the release of Pakistanis being
detained at a U.S. naval base in Cuba on suspi-
Pakistani police heading the investigation
said they believed the pictures were genuine. In
one, which appears to be staged, the man
believed to be Pearl is sitting in front of a blue
curtain with his head bowed and wrists in
chains. The arms of an unseen, white-robed
man are shown - one pointing a revolver at
his head, the other clutching the captive's hair.
The e-mail, written by a group calling itself
the National Movement for the Restoration of
Pakistani Sovereignty, was sent Saturday night
to 31 addresses: The Washington Post, The
New York Times and media and government
Arab Emirates. Neither The Wall Street Journal
nor its publisher, Dow Jones & Co., received
Pearl had been living in the Pakistani port city
of Karachi reporting on news events in the after-
math of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in the Unit-
ed States, according to newspaper officials.
Police said Pearl was scheduled to meet
Wednesday night with a representative of
Harkat ul-Mujaheddin, a militant Islamic group
that the U.S. government declared a terrorist
organization after Sept. 11.
Pearl, met two purported members of the

ranking official would be conducted at
another location, -police investigators said.
They said he telephoned his wife and told
her he would be home later for dinner. That
was the last anyone has heard from Pearl,
according to police.
Law-enforcement authorities say they
believe the interview offer was a trap to snare
Pearl, according to a senior police official of
Sindh province, where Karachi is located.

Daschle criticizes Bush's use of
health and retirement funds
WASHINGTON (AP) - It's a war of non-words.
Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle accuses the
Bush administration of "Enronizing" the economy
- raiding retirement and health funds to enrich the
Senate Minority Leader Trent Lott fired back with
his own new verb: "Daschle-ize."
Daschle, the South Dakota Democrat who uttered
"Enronize" last week, faced questions yesterday
about whether he had gone too far in comparing
Enron's possibly criminal activity to the administra-
tion's stewardship of the economy and budget. He
didn't back down.
"I don't want to see happen to all of the country, to
our retirees, what happened to employees of the

Assembly President Matt Nolan.
Angie Rowe, financial clerk for
University Parking and Transportation
Services, said the South Forest Avenue
parking garage is the only structure
currently operating with AVI technol-
"As far as the new permit year,
which begins July 1, the AVI system is
not going to be in effect," Rowe said.
Brown added that, pending the suc-
cess of the system in gold parking
areas,' which will go online early next
month, campuswide implementation
will not take place until the fall of
2003. "The issue of enforcement
hours is something we're going to
have to work on. We've still got a long
way to go," Brown said.
"It's a change, and some people
resist change, but the benefits are
going to outweigh the drawbacks and
people will get used to it," she said.
In addition to guaranteeing more
parking spots for gold and blue pass
holders by preventing illegal parkers
from entering, pass holders will no
longer have to worry about theft.
"Right now, four to six parking
passes are reported stolen a week.
Under AVI, stolen or lost tags can be
deactivated immediately," Brown said.

the more people are wondering, 'what is
this going to mean for me,"' said Rev.

However, some people in the audi-
