Students are now able to use
Entree Plus for meals at restau-
rants - including Little Caesar's
- in the Union and North Cam-
pus Commons, as a result of a re-
cent merger between the Housing
Division and the Michigan Union.
"We've been hearing for several
years that students would like to
use Entree Plus in those areas,"
said Larry Durst, Housing Divi-
sion Business Manager.
Students can put money in an
Entree Plus account to use as a
supplement to their meal plan. Be-
fore the merger, students could
only use their Entree Plus account
to purchase food in University
cafeterias or snackbars.
The restaurants which started
providing the service Monday in-
clude: The Mug, Dagwood's, Lit-
tle Caesars, the North Campus
Cafeteria, and The Common De-
The service is not available at
the Bangkok II Thai Restaurant
because there is a limit to the
number of cash registers able to be
linked to the system at one time.

Six hour meeting makes little
headway in resolving crisis

GENEVA (AP) - Secretary of
State James Baker said Iraqi Foreign
Minister Tariq Aziz met for more
than six hours yesterday, but failed
to defuse the Persian Gulf crisis that
threatens war in the Middle East.
Aziz blamed the United States for
the crisis and said, "We will not
yield to threats" demanding Iraqi
withdrawal from Kuwait. Aziz,
whose nation invaded Kuwait last
summer, pledged it would not attack
first in the current crisis.
Baker said Aziz did not relent dur-
ing the discussions. "Regrettably, I
heard nothing today that suggested to
me any Iraqi flexibility whatsoever,"
Baker said.
Baker's somber announcement
quickly ended speculation that the
length of the meeting was a sign of
progress in ending the six-month
crisis short of war. Unless Iraq
changes its mind, Baker said, it "will
be choosing a military confrontation
that it cannot win."
American diplomats will be leav-

ing the Iraqi capital on Saturday;
Baker added, three days before the
deadline for possible attack.
Oil prices fell sharply in early
trading as word spread that the talks
had not broken apart abruptly, then

Durst pointed out that using

Entree Plus at the restaurants will
be similar to a checking account
except that-"most places don't ac-

"I like to go out to dinner ev-
ery Friday with a friend and we
like to go to places like that," said
LSA sophomore Laura Schnell.
"And it will be so convenient to
be able to go out to dinner with-

out taking money from the bank
and your parents pay for it."
Restaurant workers also say the
system will be helpful to them.
"Change is a pain in the neck.
This is faster - you just swipe

"There is also less chance of error
and fewer deposits to the bank," he

Safety advisory committee to be ready by month's end

by Jay Garcia
Daily MSA Reporter
The committee to advise the
University on the implementation of
campus safety proposals - includ-
ing the deputization of campus po-
lice - will be in place by the end of
the month, a University official said.
University officials have repeat-
edly said the advisory committee

will offer students a voice in
University decisions on safety.
Much of the student protest against
deputization during November fo-
cused on the lack of student input in
University decision-making.
Four students, four faculty mem-
bers, and four staff members will
serve on the committee.
The Provost's office solicited stu-

dent nominees from the presidents of
more than 20 student governments.
The Michigan Student Assembly
(MSA) did not nominate any stu-
dents. MSA President Jennifer Van
Valey was unavailable for comment.
MSA Representative and Student
Rights Commission Chair Corey
Dolgon said students should boycott
the committee.

"Instead of basically accepting the
decision to deputize security students
have to take a stand, " Dolgon said.
Sitting on the committee would give
the decision legitimacy, he added.
E. Kay Dawson, assistant to
Provost and Vice President for
Academic Affairs Gilbert Whitaker,
said Whitaker will be solely respon-
sible for choosing amongst the 47

student nominees for the Provost's
Advisory Committee on Safety and
"I was disappointed (about MSA
not responding) because we wanted
to have as broadly representative a
group as possible," Dawson said.
Dawson would not say which stu-
dent governments had or had not
submitted nominations other than to
