Festivities for Ramadan
NABLUS, West Bank (AP) - One
gun has fallen silent in the Israeli-Pales-
tinian conflict: the century-old cannon
that used to signal the end of the day's
fast during Ramadan.
Since the Muslim holy month got
under way last week, the gun's thun-
derous boom has been silenced by the
fire chief of this Palestinian city
because he doesn't want to spook
already jittery residents, and he can't
get gunpowder anyway.
Across the West Bank, Ramadan is a
somber affair this year, with Israeli mili-
tary curfews keeping many residents
confined to their homes, unable to visit
relatives for large, festive evening meals
at the end of the daytime fast.
"I lost my feeling for Ramadan," said
Dalal Sobieh. "I just feel hungry."
one came; her family istfrom a village
separated from Nablus by dangerous
roads and military checkpoints.
Her husband and two little girls, 8-
month-old Waad and Shahad, 10, sat
around a small table spread with soup,
rice, salad and bread on a yellow plastic
Without the cannon, the call to break
the fast comes over crackling radios in
an old man's voice: "God is great."
Sobieh filled her
the smells of spices;

and sweets, but no

"As part of a broad coalition of environmental groups
which Ben & Jerry's is part of, they can help to support our
effort to working towards a sustainable campus," he said.
Ben & Jerry's marketing representative Heather Ryan
said their current tour of college campuses is.a continua-
tion of a similar tour her team did with Dave Matthews
Band over the summer, whose single "One Sweet World"
from their debut album was the inspiration for the name
of the ice cream flavor.
Ryan said students on college campuses have been more
receptive to the campaign's message than Dave Matthews

"The faculty will be glad to be back closer to central
campus," Nye said.
Brown said the second floor of Mason Hall will be
demolished as soon as faculty finishes moving into the
"Mason construction will not be nearly as extensive as
Haven, which had to be completely gutted," Brown said.
Mason's reconstruction will include adding air condition-
ing to the building as well as classroom remodeling. Con-
struction on Mason is scheduled to finish at the end of this
Several other University construction projects are near-
ing completion, including Rackham Auditorium, which has
"Performing arts events are already scheduled through
November and December (at Rackham)," Brown said.
"January renovations will be completed as well, so that's
all on schedule."
The Palmer Drive Parking Structure, a $24 million park-
ing garage for the Life Sciences Institute, has had consid-
erable construction work completed. Partial use for the
structure is scheduled for July 2003.
Other work on the Palmer Drive Development projects
include the initial formations of the Biomedical Science
Research Building, as well as a request to the University's
Board of Regents to authorize bids for the Undergraduate
Science Building, which will be built above the Palmer
Drive Parking Structure.

nowhere, if the U.N. chooses not to act,
we have not given up our authority to
act with like-minded nations who might
wish to join us in such an action."
The administration received support
yesterday when Arab foreign ministers
meeting in Cairo urged Saddam to
accept the terms of the resolution.
Rice, meantime, dismissed as "ludi-
crous" the call by the Iraqi president for
his parliament to hold an emergency
session on the resolution.
"Saddam Hussein is an absolute dic-
tator and tyrant, and the idea that some-
how he expects the Iraqi parliament to
debate this - they've never debated
anything else," Rice said on ABC's
"This Week." "I'm surprised he's even
bothering to go through this ploy."
Administration officials faced ques-
tions on reports published Sunday on
President Bush's approval of a battle
plan should Iraq fail to comply with the
U.N. resolution. The leaks appeared to
be an effort to send Saddam a message
about how serious the United States is.
A Pentagon plan for invading Iraq
calls for a land, sea and air force of
200,000 to 250,000 troops. Pentagon
planners had considered an approach
that would have used 100,000 or fewer
troops, but they settled on a much larger
force favored by Gen. Tommy Franks,
head of the Central Command that
would run any war in Iraq, said officials
who spoke on condition of anonymity.
"If I were Saddam Hussein I would
take it with a great deal of concern and
seriousness and understand that this is
not some idle threat that has been issued
by the United States," Powell said on
CBS's "Face the Nation."
"This is not some resolution to be
ignored, as he's ignored all previous res-
Powell, Rice and Card declined to
discuss the details of the plan, and Bush
ignored a question about it as he
returned to the White House from
Sen. Carl Levin, chairman of the
Armed Services Committee, said the
administration may have planted false
stories to mislead Iraq. "It may be disin-
formation, as far as we know," he said
on CNN's "Late Edition."
"I don't think it's particularly helpful
for actual plans to be out there publicly,"
said Levin (D-Mich). "On the other
hand, there's some value in that,
because it shows Saddam seriousness of
purpose, and if he doesn't get that idea
from all the other rhetoric and actions
that we've taken, this should clearly fin-
ish the job."
Iraq has until Friday to accept the
terms of the U.N. and pledge to comply,
and until Dec. 8 to provide weapons
inspectors and the Security Council
with a complete declaration of all
aspects of its chemical, biological and
"If he says, 'We have none,' we're
already going to know that this is not a
regime that is changing its stripes,
because everybody knows that there is
much that is unaccounted for from the
old inspections regime," Rice said on
"Fox News Sunday."
"It's been pretty clear that the next
material breach (of Iraq's U.N. obliga-
tions) has got to have serious conse-
quences," Rice said. "I think it's pretty
clear what that may mean."
"We have to have a zero-tolerance
view of the Iraqi regime this time," Rice
said. "This is a regime with a very long
history now of deception and deceit."
Rice said she was "very skeptical"
Saddam would comply.

"I think that free food is really a winner, but I also think a
lot of college students are open to our message," she said.
"There's just so much enthusiasm in the student groups
we've been working with."
The campaign highlights everyday ways in which indi-
viduals can fight carbon dioxide emissions. For example, it
suggests that individuals pledge to reduce their personal
share of emissions by 5 percent, by doing things like driv-
ing less, getting regular tune-ups for cars,.turning down
the thermostat in the winter, recycling, and turning off
computer monitors when not in ,use. It also encourages
people to write letters to congress and to learn more about
the issue of global climate change.

that I had no knowledge of or any involvement in the
exchange of money between any of our players and Ed
Martin," said Fisher, now the coach of San Diego State
University. "I_ am saddened, disappointed and angered by
the events that have hurt so many people."
Michigan Athletic Director Bill Martin said there was
no mention of Fisher knowing anything about the pay-
ments in the NCAA's letter of inquiry. He also said he
would welcome an apology from the aforementioned
players and would like to see them take responsibility for
In the response to the NCAA's letter of inquiry, the Uni-
versity states that Fisher and/or his assistants "either knew
or should have known that (Ed) Martin was providing a
benefit" when Martin used his credit card to purchase
hotel rooms for the Webber family for the 1992 NCAA
Final Four in Minneapolis. Martin's name had been placed
on an official list which allowed him to reserve hotel
rooms through the basketball office and was described as
a "friend of the program."
In addition to taking down banners, Michigan will
attempt to inoculate itself against further NCAA sanctions
by returning $450,000 paid to it by the NCAA for its post-
season appearances, forfeiting games while the ineligible
players were on the team, imposing a two year period of
probation, and banning itself from participating in any of
this year's postseason tournaments.
