NEWS BRIEFS
NEW ORLEANS
Gustav's 110-mph
winds hit west of
New Orleans
Hurricane Gustav slammed
into the heart of Louisiana's fish-
ing and oil industry with 110 mph
winds yesterday, delivering only a
glancing blow to New Orleans that
raised hopes the city would escape
the kind of catastrophic flooding
brought by Katrina three years
ago.
Wind-driven water sloshed over
the top of the Industrial Canal's
floodwall, but city officials and the
Army Corps of Engineers said they
expected the levees, still only par-
tially rebuilt after Katrina, would
hold. Flood protections along the
canal broke with disastrous effect
during Katrina, submerging St.
Bernard Parish and the Lower
Ninth Ward.
The nearly 2 million people who
left coastal Louisiana on a man-
datory evacuation order watched
TV coverage from shelters and
hotel rooms hundreds of miles
away. While New Orleans wasn't
submerged, there were scores of
homes that suffered damage. More
than 500,000 customers were
without power. In Terrebonne
Parish, located in the southeast
part of the state, several homeshad
torn roofs, but winds were still too
fierce for officials to fan out and
assess how bad the damage was.
ST. PAUL
VP candidate Palin
claims teenage
daughter is pregnant
John McCain's running mate,
Sarah Palin, said yesterday her
17-year-old unmarried daugh-
ter is five months pregnant, an
announcement stealing even
more thunder from McCain and a
Republican presidential conven-
tion already overshadowed by
Hurricane Gustav.
Adding to the day's drama,
McCain aides said the announce-
ment was aimed at rebutting Inter-
net rumors that Palin's youngest
son, born in April, was actually her
daughter's.
Yesterday's statement, attrib-
uted to Sarah and Todd Palin and
released by the campaign, said
that Bristol Palin would keep her
baby and marry the child's father,
identified only as a young man
named Levi. The baby is due in late
December.
"Our beautiful daughter Bris-
tol came to us with news that as
parents we knew would make her
grow up faster than we had ever
planned. We're proud of Bristol's
decision to have her baby and even
prouder to become grandparents,"
Sarah and Todd Palin said in their
brief statement.
TOKYO
Japanese Prime
Minister resigns
Japan's chronically unpopular

prime minister abruptly resigned
yesterday after a yearlong struggle
with a deadlocked parliament,
leaving the weakened ruling party
to grapple with a stalled economy
and rising calls for snap elections.
The resignation of Yasuo Fuku-
da, 72, deepened a two-year stretch
of political instability at the helm
of the world's second-largest econ-
omy. It came only days after the
government announced a stimulus
package to counter flagging con-
sumer spending.
Fukuda, who took office just un-
der a year ago, said he was clearing
the decks for a more popular suc-
cessor to take over ahead of atough
special session in the parliament,
where the ruling party controls
the lower house and the opposition
dominates the upper.

Burst pipe shuts down Union Police search fOr suspect after

Resturants closed
Monday, officials
hope to turn water
back on today
By JILLIAN BERMAN
Daily StaffReporter
A burst pipe in the Michigan
Union limited access to the build-
ing Monday, moving events that
had been scheduled there to the
Michigan League.
All restaurants in the Michi-
gan Union were closed after the
Union's main hot water pipe
erupted Sunday night, forc-
ing plant operations to turn off
the building's water, said Linda
Green, a spokeswoman for the
Division of Student Affairs.
Green said University officials

hoped to have the water turned
back on by Tuesday, when classes
begin.
"They've been working on it
all night, they've been work-
ing on it all day, and the hope
is they would have it fixed this
evening," said Green, adding
that the building's old age - it
opened in 1919 - may have con-
tributed to the mishap.
"When you have a building
that's the age of the Union these
things just happen," she said.
Green said the Union would
be reopened as soon as the water
was turned back on.
Though all eateries, restrooms
and computer labs closed, the
Union bookstore and the Informa-
tion Technology Central Services
center remained open Monday.
The annual poster sale in the
Union basement also continued
as workers repaired the pipe.

pair of attempted abductions

Unknown man tried
to pull female joggers
into van near campus
By SARA LYNNE THELEN
Daily StaffReporter
Ann Arbor police are searching
for a man who attempted to abduct
two female joggers in separate
incidents Sunday night.
Ann Arbor Police Lieutenant
Michael Logghe said police believe
the events, which occurred about
an hour apart on Packard Street
near Independence Boulevard, are
related. '
The first victim, a 20-year-old
University student, was pulled into
the bushes around 8:30 p.m. as she
ran past the suspect's van, Logghe
said. She broke free and ran away

as the man tried to pull her
back into the bushes.
At about 9:40 p.m., the
attacker drove alongside a
16-year-old female, pulledher
into his van and punched her
several times, Logghe said.
As he started to drive away,
she opened the side door and
jumped from the moving van.
The second victim was
treated and released from Univer-
sityHospital forminor injures. The
first victim sustained minor inju-
ries but refused treatment.
Though police believe the same
person committed both crimes,
the suspect is described as wear-
ing different clothes during the
two attacks. In the first report, the
attacker is described as wearing
no shirt and blue shorts with an
orange band at the top. In the sec-
ond, he is described as wearing a
dark-colored sweatshirt and jeans.

Both women pro-
vided similar physical
descriptions oftheman:
awhitemaleaboutSfeet,
11 inches tall, 35 to 45
years old, with a medi-
um build, facial stubble,
graying dark hair and
cOMPOSITE crooked teeth.
KETCH/AAP5 Police said the sus-
pect's van is dark-
colored with a bench seat behind
the driver's seat and might be a
Chrysler model.
Logghe said joggers should use
caution, even when it isn't dark.
"Jog in pairs, don't jog by your-
self - especially at night," he said.
"If you're going to, don't use ear-
phones or things of that nature, so
that you can be aware of your sur-
roundings."
Anyone with information on the
cases is asked to call the Ann Arbor
Police tip line at 734-996-3199.
