THIS DAY
In 'U' History
Graduate student

Sept. 14, 1980 - A Univer-

stabbed to death outside her
west Ann Arbor apartment Sun-

the third local woman to die
under these circumstances in
the past five months. The body
of Rebecca Huff, 30, was dis-
covered at 8 a.m. on the steps of
her Walden Hills apartment on
South Maple Road.
Ann Arbor Police Chief Wil-
liam Corbett said there are

crime, but that there were simi-
larities between Huff's death
and the murders of two other
local women. Corbett said sus-
pects are being investigated, but
no arrests have been made.
The body of Shirley Small,
17, the first victim, was found
on April 20 near her home in
the Georgetown Townhouses on
Page Avenue.
Three months later, the body
of Glenda Richmond, 23, was
discovered outside her Univer-
sity Townhouse apartment near
Braeburn Circle.
Corbett said nearly all of his
detectives are working on the
case and the Washtenaw County
Sheriff's office and state police
have also been notified.

Former Iranian president
concludes five-day U.S. tour

During visit to U.S., Khatami
promoted nonviolent talks
between East and West
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) - Iran's former
President Mohammad Khatami could be found
munching seared salmon and Caesar salad last
weekend with Harvard professors on the final leg of
a five-city U.S. tour.
In speeches, interviews and meetings with foreign
policy groups, Khatami offered a moderate take on
relations between East and West that focused on non-
violence, discussion and mutual understanding - in
sharp contrast to his hard-line successor, Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad.
In some of the most significant U.S.-Iranian contact
since the 1979 Islamic revolution, the former Iranian
leader blended calls for tolerance with critiques of the
U.S.-angering conservatives in both countries.
Smiling gently beneath his black turban at talks
in Washington, Chicago, Cambridge and Charlot-
tesville, Va., the soft-spoken cleric was an unusual
public face for a country that is locked in a nuclear
standoff with the West, cracking down on dissent at
home and accused of aiding Hezbollah guerrillas in
Lebanon.
He condemned the Sept. 11 attacks, endorsed a
two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,
acknowledged the existence of the Holocaust and
said that, at least for now, the U.S. presence in Iraq
is necessary.

He mixed conciliatory language with descriptions
of the U.S. as an overreaching imperial power, and
followed scholarly musings on tolerance and under-
standing with defenses of what the West has called
Iranian violations of human rights.
The pleasant ring of the word 'Puritan' has always
delighted the lovers of freedom, compassion and
humanity," Khatami told an audience at Harvard's
John F. Kennedy School of Government in a speech
Sunday that surveyed 200 years of American history.
Khatami moved forward in time, his tone harden-
ing as he described the growth of American power.
"One cannot and ought not turn the world into
one's military camp in the name of human rights and
democracy," he said, a moment after also criticizing
terrorism.
In a tough question-and-answer session with stu-
dents, he defended Hezbollah while denying that Iran
supported it; endorsed the punishment of Iranian
homosexuals while implying that the death penalty
was extreme; and criticized the family of a Canadian-
Iranian photojournalist for its reaction to her death in
Iranian detention.
"When he finished talking he was sweating under-
neath his robes," said Graham Allison, a leading
expert on nuclear weapons and director of the Ken-
nedy School's Belfer Center for Science and Interna-
tional Affairs.
Khatami differed sharply on questions of domestic
policy with Ahmadinejad, telling a questioner he dis-
agreed with the Iranian president's call for a purge of
secular and liberal professors.
