Pope unharmed
after attack
in Portugal

FATIMA, Portugal (AP)- A young
man in clerical garb lunged at Pope
John Paul II with a knife at the Our
Lady of Fatima shrine yesterday but
security guards overpowered him
before he reached the pontiff, the state-
run ANOP news service said.
The pope was not hurt and continued
a ceremony for a gathering of an
estimated one million of the faithful
that was drawing to a close when the at-
tack occurred. The official Portuguese
television network quoted police sour-
ces as saying the assailant was dressed
as a Spanish priest and was carrying a
knife when taken into custody.
ANOP DESCRIBED the knife as a
large bayonet and said he held it in his
hand when he lunged at the pope.
It said the man shouted "Down with
the Pope! Down with Vatican Two! "-a
reference to Vatican Council II in 1962-
65, that instituted a variety of church
reforms, including allowing the
celebration of mass in local languages
rather than only Latin.
There was no immediate comment
from authorities, nor was there any in-
dication the crowd was aware of the in-
IT WAS the eve of the first anniver-
sary of an attempt on John Paul's life in
St. Peter's Square in the Vatican. He
had said that visiting Fatima fulfilled
the first wish he made after he was
While the security men grappled with
the attacker, the pontiff climbed the

steps and gave his blessing to the
throng of candle-bearing pilgrims, the
reports said. ANOP said he left through
the back door of the basilica and retur-
ned to a bishop's residence.
Television reports said the attacker
appeared to be in his mid-20s with shor-
tly cropped hair. He was seen being
taken away by two agents who grabbed
his arms and pulled open 'his black
clerical jacket, the reports said.
As the pope left, tens of thousands of
pilgrims shouted "Viva o papa:" -
"Long live the pope" - and a choir sang
"Hail Mary."

CEW supported at hearing

"We don't intend to carry this on for
the whole-summer," said Parsons, ad-
ding that the committee's job has been
made much easier by the vast infor-
mation supplied by CEW
Both faculty members and women
who described themselves as "con-
sumers of CEW's services," addressed
the committee, emphasizing CEW's
work with non-traditional students.
BERNADETTE Malinoski, former
chairman of a University committee on
affirmative action, cited the center's
work on the University's Women's
Career Fair, which fosters the
development of women who are already
part of the University and helps to
recruit others, she said.
Ann Arbor resident Merrill Nemiroff
described her experience with CEW,
almost twenty years after she'd
received her first degree from the
Qiiik-Pik rolbbedI
A man wearing a ski mask walked in-
to the Quik-Pik Store at 2385 Ellsworth
Road Tuesday night and robbed the
store at gunpoint, Ann Arabor police
said yesterday. The suspect reportedly
entered the store around 11 p.m. and
threatened three of the employees with
a handgun. The robber took an un-
disclosed amount of money and fled on
*foot with the moyey in a paper bag.

She spoke about a series of CEW
workshops she attended on job finding
techniques. After additional counseling
from CEW, Nemiroff said she decided
to return to school and received a
master's degree from the School of
CEW DOESN'T bring in defense
dollars, said Nemiroff, who received a
round of applause after she spoke, but it
can accurately be described as a
"collection of small successes."
A number of speakers also noted
CEW's Women in Science Program.
Students need extra support and en-
couragement to enter mathematical and
physical science fields, Computer
Science Prof. Joyce Frieman said, ad-
ding that CEW's program provides this
The review committee evaluating
CEW, which opened in 1964, has been
charged with determing the extent to
which the Center's services are
duplicated by other University units
and whether the University would gain
more if the center were in some part
reorganized or reassigned.
In addition, the committee will
examine whether the center has adap-
ted itself to societal changes concerning
women that have taken place since its
