Saddam' s
end off
NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) -
.addam Hussein's troops blasted
their way into the Shiite Muslim
holy cities of Karbala and Najaf as
they struggled to beat back a na-
tionwide rebellion, Iraqi opposition
leaders said yesterday.
Loyal troops also were reported
to have used napalm to try to crush
a rebellion in the southern Iraqi
city of Basra. And rebels were said
to have slowed their advance on
* the northern oil city of Kirkuk, out
of fear for 5,000 civilians being
held as human shields there.
The reports, none of which
could be confirmed, drew a picture
of Saddam's forces slowly regain-
iig control over Iraq, portions of
which have been plunged into re-
bellion and chaos since the end of
the Gulf War.

Baker continues tour of Middle
East to promote peace initiative

by Sarah Schweitzer
Daily Administration Reporter
University President James
Duderstadt, in a letter sent to
Black student leaders yesterday,
accepted responsibility for the
University's failure to act quickly
in the investigation of a police in-
cident at South Quad.
He also listed actions the ad-
ministration is taking to prevent
the recurrence of such an incident.
The incident involved the use
of mace by Ann Arbor Police last
December to break up a fight at an
Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority party
held in South Quad's Dining Room
In his letter, Duderstadt criti-
cized the "system" which "failed
to respond to you and to all stu-
dents as it should."
The incident, he said, demon-
strates the how far the University
has to go in order to create.a safe
campus and reveals the inade-
quacy of University policies, facil-
ities, and services to meet the
needs of students of color.
To address this inadequacy,
Duderstadt listed various actions
the University plans to take, in-
standardizing policies and
procedures for investigating stu-
dent-related issues and complaints;
appointing a permanent staff
liaison to work with the Black
Greek Association (BGA) and Stu-'
dent Services;
assuming the costs for addi-
tional security needed for social

Duderstadt also said he hoped
the BGA and administrators will
be able to find a mutually satisfac-
tory meeting time and place. In re-
cent months, repeated attempts to
arrange a meeting have failed due
to conflicts with the proposed
times and meeting places,

new talks with Palestinian Arabs
yesterday, overlooking their asser-

that politics were the furthest thing
from his mind when he obtained

But some people feel it is inap-
propriate for the Mayor to work for
two of the largest institutions in
Ann Arbor.
"It has never been a conflict
because the University officers

Jernigan's mayoral position does
not alter their relationship.
"My relationship with Jernigan

Fund bestows grant
to Women in Science

MSA passes funding
request to attend
USSA conference

by Andrew Levy
The University's Women in Sci-
ence Program was recently awarded
a $100,000 grant by the Clare
Boothe Luce Fund to establish fel-
lowships for incoming women doc-
toral students in physics, mathemat-
ics, and engineering.
Fellowships under the grant will
be given to four doctoral candidates:
two for the 1991-92 school year, and
two for the 1992-93 school year.
Candidates for the fellowships, who
*'must be incoming students, will be
nominated by the individual Univer-
sity departments. A selection com-
mittee will decide the recipients of
the money.
The fund stipulates that the grant
money be given to support junior
women faculty members, provide
undergraduate fellowship money, or
provide graduate fellowship money.
The Women in Science Program ap-

"The Aiare Boothe Luce Fund
will have an enormous impact on the
training of this country's future sci-
entists," said Davis.
Clare Boothe Luce had no partic-
ular involvement in the sciences, but
she created the fund in her will be-
cause she saw science as one of the
last frontiers not tackled by women.
Students receiving the fellowships
will be funded for one year by the
grant. Following the first year, the
funding will be taken over by the
sponsoring department.
"If the fellows are successful, the
departments will continue funding
them throughout their graduate edu-
cations (at the University)," Davis

erstadt also commented on the

A funding request for members to
attend a United States Student Asso-
ciation (USSA) lobbying conference
passed at last night's Michigan Stu-
dent Assembly meeting.
The assembly will take $400
from discretionary executive funds
and $400 from the External Rela-
tions Committee budget.
USSA is a national student lob-
bying group which sponsors this
conference every year. The confer-
ence takes place in Washington D.C.
and is attended by college and uni-
versity students across the nation.
At last week's meeting, External
Relations Committee (ERC) Chair
Bill Cosnowski announced ERC had
decided not to sponsor the conference
this year, saying it was not "cost

Chair Corey Dolgon disagreed with
Cosnowski. "My experience going

you choose to talk about."
