BBEAT BATTLE

Liquor store burns down in morning fire

75 years ago this week
(February25,1938):
A fire that lasted three hours
destroyed a liquor store at 113
W. Huron Street, causing an
estimated $50,000 in damage.
The small fire, started by a pile
of smoldering coals in the base-
ment, quickly escalated when
it hit bottles of liquor and pure
alcohol.
Ann Arbor Fire Chief Charles
J. Andrews mobilized all avail-
able equipment and manpower
to fight the blaze. Many firefight-
ers were cut by flying glass and
forced to draw back because of
heavy smoke.
The neighboring businesses,
Davenport's Restaurant and

Miller's barbershop, were affect-
ed only by the smoke. The fire
was first noticed at 9 a.m. and
was under control by noon.
50 years ago this week
(February 26,1963):
After spring rush and pledg-
ing left some sorority houses
with empty rooms, Panhellen-
ic Association President Ann
McMillan predicted the associa-
tion would recommend a revi-
sion to the rush program.
McMillan said re-implement-
ing a fall rush could help solve
the problem. A fall rushing
system was used at the Univer-
sity from 1952 to 1957, but was
changed due to a student govern-

ment council vote.
The proposal return to a fall
rush systemwas sent for approv-
al by the Assembly Association
and student representatives.
20 years ago this week
(March 1,1993):
The Michigan women's swim-
ming and diving team won their
seventh consecutive Big Ten
Championship at Canham Nata-
torium, narrowly beating out
Northwestern's team 676-628.
This win set a record in women's
athletics for most consecutive
championship victories.

Top Israeli army
officals met over
weekend to discuss
growing unrest
RAMALLAH, West Bank
(AP) - The mysterious death
of a 30-year-old Palestinian
gas station attendant in Israeli
custody stoked new West Bank
clashes Sunday, along with
Israeli fears of a third Palestin-
ian uprising.
A senior Palestinian official
alleged that Arafat Jaradat
was tortured by Israel's Shin
Bet security service, citing an
autopsy he said revealed bruis-
ing and two broken ribs.
Israel's Health Ministry said
the autopsy did not conclusively
determine the cause of death,
but that the bruising and bro-
ken ribs were likely the result of
attempts to revive the detainee.
Jaradat's death came at a
time of rising West Bank ten-
sions, including several days
of Palestinian marches in sup-
port of four hunger-striking
prisoners in Israeli lockups. In
all, Israel holds nearly 4,600
Palestinians, including dozens
who have never been formally
charged or tried.
Frozen Israeli-Palestinian
peace talks, the recent re-elec-
tion of Israeli hard-line Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,
a Palestinian cash crisis and the
Palestinians' sense ofbeingaban-
doned by the Arab world seem to
have created fertile ground for a
third Palestinian revolt.
Over the weekend, Israel's
army chief convened senior
commanders to discuss the
growing unrest.
Jaradat's death "is liable to
become the opening shot" in a
third uprising, Israeli military
commentator Alex Fishman
wrote in the Yediot Ahronot
daily Sunday, arguing that the
"Palestinian street has been
boiling with anger for a number
of weeks now."

However, Israeli officials
have previously expressed con-
cern about a new uprising, only
to see bursts of Palestinian pro-
tests fizzle.
The first uprising, marked
by stone-throwing protests and
commercial strikes, erupted in
the late 1980s and led to Israeli-
Palestinian negotiations. The
second uprising broke out in
2000, after failed talks on a
final peace deal, and was far
deadlier, with Israel reoccupy-
ing the West Bank in response
to bombings and shootings.
In recent years, the West
Bank has been relatively calm.
Despite recent tensions, the
Palestinian self-rule govern-
ment has not broken off secu-
rity coordination with Israel
in their joint campaign against
Islamic militants.
Palestinian activists also say
they learned from the mistakes
of the armed revolt a decade
ago and are turning to more
creative protests against Isra-
el's 45-year rule over lands they
want for a future state.
Former Palestinian security
chief Jibril Rajoub, speaking in
Hebrew on Israel Radio, tried
to reassure Israelis, declar-
ing Sunday "on behalf of the
entire Palestinian leadership
that there is no plan to lead to
bloodshed."
Jaradat, a father of two from
the West Bank village of Saeer,
died in Megiddo Prison in
northern Israel on Saturday, six
days after his arrest on suspi-
cion of stone throwing.
Jaradat's attorney, Kamil
Sabbagh, said his client told an
Israeli military judge Thursday
during a heating that he was
being forced to sit for long peri-
ods during interrogation. He
also complained of back pain
and seemed terrified to return
to the Shin Bet lockup, although
he did not have any apparent
signs of physical abuse, Sab-
bagh said.
After the court hearing, the
judge ordered Jaradat to be
examined by a prison doctor.

The Shin Bet said that dur-
ing interrogation, Jaradat was
examined several times by a
doctor who detected no health
problems. On Saturday, he was
in his cell and felt unwell after
lunch, the agency said.
"Rescue services and a doctor
were alerted and treated him,"
the statement said. But "they
didn't succeed in saving his life."
On Sunday, Israel's forensics
institute performed an autopsy
attended by a physician from
the Palestinian Authority.
After being briefed by the
Palestinian physician, Issa
Karake, the Palestinian min-
ister of prisoner affairs, told a
news conference late Sunday
that Jaradat had suffered two
broken ribs on the right side
of his chest. The autopsy also
showed bruises on Jaradat's
back and chest.
Israeli officials initially said
Jaradat apparently died of a
heart attack, but Karake said the
Palestinian physician told him
there was no evidence of that.
Later, Israel's Health Minis-
try said Jaradat did not suffer
from disease and that it was not
possible yet to determine his
cause of death conclusively.
Jaradat "faced harsh torture,
leading to his immediate, direct
death. Israel is fully responsible
for his killing," Karake said.
Protesting Jaradat's death,
Palestinians threw stones at
Israeli troops in several loca-
tions, including the West Bank
city of Hebron and at a check-
point near the military's Ofer
prison on Sunday. In two loca-
tions, troops fired tear gas and
rubber-coated steel pellets.
In the clash near the check-
point, troops fired live rounds,
shooting the 15-year-old son of
the commander of the Palestin-
ian Preventive Security Service
in the chest and stomach, said
Palestinian health official Dr.
Ahmed Bitawi. The teen, Walid
Hab al-Reeh, was in stable con-
dition, while another man was
wounded in the arm, Bitawi
said.
