year if proposed funding cuts take
place, sources have indicated.
ResComp, a joint program
sponsored by the Housing Divi-
sion and Information Technology
Division (ITD), is facing the po-
tential loss of half its $600,000
budget next year, due to ITD
unding cuts.
A three-year agreement signed
in 1989 by ITD and Housing cre-
ated the current funding structure
for ResComp. Under the agree-
ment, Housing is responsible for
'all operating costs, as well as a
$100,000 contribution to a capital
'expense fund, for a total of
$300,000. ITD, in turn, agreed to
mnatch Housing's contribution,
paying $300,000 annually to the
capital expense fund.
The agreement took effect
with the 1990-91 fiscal year, but
ITD has only paid an estimated
$76,000 of its promised payment
to date. The division is planning
to cut all ResComp funding for
the 1991-92 fiscal year.
Housing Program Director
Robin Sarris refused to comment
n any proposed cuts, but did
mention that Housing and ITD are
conducting negotiations to at
least partially resolve the prob-
lem.
Some of those involved, how-
ever, are worried about the poten-
tial ramifications of a huge cut in
funding.

rebels in mosques in the besieged holy city of Kar-
bala, and defected by the tens of thousands else-
where, opposition leaders reported yesterday.
They said the Shiite fighters, as well as civilians
trapped in the crossfire, were being slaughtered, and
that 500 have been killed or wounded since Friday.
Government officials in Baghdad claimed Repub-
lican Guard troops have re-established control of the
city, 100 miles south of the Iraqi capital, after sev-
eral days of fierce combat.
They gave no details. But Saddam's forces appear
to have been concentrating artillery and tanks around
centers of resistance like Karbala.
Karbala, famed for its mosques, is revered by Shi-
ites as the burial place of Imam Hussein, grandson of
the Prophet Mohammed and one of the sect's princi-
pal saints.
While pro-democracy forces in recently liberated
Kuwait demanded their government set a date for
parliamentary elections yesterday, exile leaders met
in Beirut to coordinate their campaign to oust Sad-
dam. Ayatollah Taqi al-Mudaressi, leader of the Shi-.
ite Islamic Labor Organization, told reporters that
Republican Guards were "ruthlessly and indiscrimi-
nately shelling the holy city of Karbala."
Kurdish officials said their forces have seized
large areas of the northern provinces and were poised
to attack the key oil center of Kirkuk, 100 miles
north of Baghdad.
"They're massacring the people there," he said. "I
have sent letters to the world's religious leaders, in-
cluding the Pope, to prevent Saddam's criminal
regime from massacring the Iraqi people."
There was no independent confirmation of the re-
ports on the rebellions by the Shiites in the south and
by Kurds in the north. Fighting also was reported in
another Shiite holy city, Najaf, and in Basra and
low-income Shiite suburbs of Baghdad.
The Kurds have battled for years for autonomy for
their mountainous homeland, which includes parts of
Turkey, Iran, Syria and the Soviet Union.
The Kurds, who make up about 20 percent of
Iraqi's population, have claimed major advances
since the uprising began March 1 following Sad-
dam's crushing military defeat by the U.S.-led coali-
tion force that liberated Kuwait.

the open yesterday, pro-democracy forces accused
members of the ruling family of forming "death
squads."
Al-Hebari alleged six members of the royal fam-
ily had formed private militia squads which were ex-
ecuting people suspected of collaborating with the
Iraqis or of not supporting the government.
"We don't want Kuwait to be headed by a family
or one person," said Abdullah al-Hebari, a former
member of parliament and head of the newly formed
Kuwait Democratic Forum. "We want a democratic
government."
Al-Hebari issued a list of demands topped by a
call for a return of the 1985 parliament, which was
dissolved by Kuwait's ruler, Sheik Jaber al-Ahmed
al-Sabah, in 1986.
Next came calls for freedom of the press, expres-
sion and assembly, all restricted since that time.

impact on the (ResComp) pro-
gram," said Mary Simoni,
ResComp director.
Jeff Havlicek, an Engineering
sophomore and a ResComp
trainer, speculated on what the
cuts will mean.
"If ResComp's budget was
significantly reduced, RA's,
ResComp coordinators, ResComp
trainers, and RD's might lose ac-
cess to the computer loan fund,"
said Havlicek.
The computer loan fund pro-
vides computers free of charge to
residence hall staff and many
ResComp employees during the
school year.
"Users might see a cutback in
open hours for each ResComp
cluster. ResComp services such
as learning workshops, computer
usage workshops, and consulting

hours might seriously drop. Basi-
cally, everything that is ResComp
would be a possible source of
cuts," added Havlicek.
LSA first-year student Scott
Beal, a Bursley resident, said,
"(Reduced services) would prob-
ably bother me, especially if
hours were reduced, because I go
to clusters at some pretty weird
hours sometimes."
Other students living in the
residence halls were disturbed by
the prospect of reduced ResComp
services.
"I prefer that (the clusters) be
open longer hours, and that there
would be an attendant there all
the time," said LSA sophomore
and East Quad resident Jannica
Groom. "It wouldn't be as easy to
use MTS, and it's more conve-

Secretary of State James Baker and Israeli For-
eign Minister David Levy said yesterday night they
saw signs of a new Arab attitude toward the Jewish
state that could provide openings for peace in the
Middle East.
After receiving a report from Baker, who had met
with Arab foreign ministers on Sunday, Levy said, "I
am pleased they are beginning to show signs of
change."
Baker's report was based on talks he held with
Arab foreign ministers in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on
Sunday and then with Egyptian President Hosnii
Mubarak in Cairo.
Today he will meet with Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, whose plan to provide some self-rule to
Palestinians on the West Bank and in Gaza was re-
confirmed by Levy in his meeting with Baker.
Baker today denounced the stabbing deaths of
four Israeli women Sunday by a Palestinian and can-
celed a scheduled walking tour of East Jerusalem.
Police said the assailant had told them the stabbings
were meant as a "message to Baker."
The secretary of state scheduled a meeting with a

Anti-imperialist party to

Six students have decided to
run for seats on the Michigan Stu-
dent Assembly under the Anti-Im-
perialist Action Caucus (AIAC)
which is the Ann Arbor chapter of
the National Anti-Imperialist
League. The party is not running
candidates for any MSA executive
offices.
"We want to be 'a voice for a
rogressive, militant movement in
the student body. The assembly
could be the center for organized
mass movement," said LSA senior
Paul Carmouche, a member of the
AIAC party.

the issues of the world are issues
that affect the students of this
campus," Carmouche said.
All members of the AIAC party
wanted a victory for Iraq in the
Gulf War.
Carmouche and LSA junior
Jonathan Payne, another party
member, are supporters of the
Revolutionary Workers League
which has received criticism in re-
cent months for creating friction
within several student and com-
munity activist groups.
The AIAC party platform calls
for stances both on world politics
and massive changes in the run-
ning of the University. The four
major points of the platform are:
Organizing to stop the next
"imperialist" war. The AIAC party

believes the recent defeat of Iraq
will encourage the U.S. to start an-
other war which they want to help
prevent.
Abolishing the University's
Board of Regents. "We want the
University to be under the control
of students, workers, and teachers
so they all have the powers of
making policy," said LSA junior
and AIAC candidate Chai
Montgomery.
E Open admissions and free tu-
ition. "As long as the regents are
in control, this University is the
tool of big business and the mili-
tary industrial complex. We want
to make it the tool of the op-
pressed in society," Carmouche
said. The AIAC party believes an

Red in t
by Matt Rennie
Daily Hockey Writer
While it is unlikely that Red
Berenson owns any ruby slippers,
the Michigan hockey coach agrees
that there is no place like home.
With that thought in mind,
Berenson was pleased with the
news that his Wolverines will host
Cornell at Yost Ice Arena in the
first round of the NCAA tourna-
ment. Michigan received the No. 3
seed in the West half of the 12-
team field.
Although the Wolverines antic-
ipated playing at home in the first
round, no one in the Michigan
camp wanted to take anything for
granted. Last year, after beating
Bowling Green in the consolation
game of the CCHA playoffs, the

nurney
team expected to receive a bid,
only to be snubbed by the selec-
tion committee.
"I don't know much about Cor-
nell, but playing at home, we
know the rink and we know what
to expect," Berenson said.
While few team members knew
specifics about the.Cornell squad,
their confidence was running high.
"It doesn't matter who we
play," defenseman Doug Evans
said. "It's how Michigan plays that
counts. The only team that's going
to beat us is us, beating our-
selves."
One who knew something about
the Cornell program was Wol-
verine co-captain David Harlock.

tuition would help the oppressed in
society.
All police officers off cam-
pus. "We want all cops off campus
to be replaced by democratically
elected defense patrols," Car-
mouche said. AIAC party members
say the defense patrols would be
used to fight racist attacks.

- Drew Westen
professor of psychology

Yes, he died in 1939, thank you."
Westen wasn't finished being
funny. He did get down to the
business of lecturing by
addressing his Freud question.
Citing examples, he argued that
Freud's ideas about unconscious
motivation extend to thought and
feelings that psychologists are*
beginning to document
empirically today.
At one point, Westen asked,
half the audience to close their
eyes and plug their ears for 30
seconds, promising them that the
other half of the audience wasn't
planning to ambush them.

by Garrick Wang
Daily Staff Reporter
Drew Westen delivered his "last
lecture" with a touch of irony
becuase he will soon leave the
University due to an unwritten
department hiring practice which
discourages granting tenure to fac-
ulty earning University doctorates.
"There is no University-wide
prohibition which forbids the hiring

lecture."
Westen is a professor of intro-
ductory psychology and the
recipient of Students Honoring

Teaching's first Golden Apple
