University students have the
unique opportunity to purchase
main floor tickets to the the
Metropolitan Opera Orchestra's
April 30 performance at Hill
Auditorium for a discounted price.
"Nothing would be more disap-
pointing than to have people ex-
cluded, especially the students right
on campus," said Michael
Kondziolka of the University
Musical Society, referring to the
$200 cost of main floor tickets.
Ford Motor Credit Company has
agreed to cover $175 of this cost for
200 University students. These tick-
ets will be available at Hill
Auditorium Box Office tomorrow
from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Student iden-
tification is required to obtain main
floor tickets at a price of $25.
"We approached Ford and they
decided to help," Kondziolka said.
"This way everyone would win.
Ford gets exposure, the Society gets
the benefit price, and students get to
attend at the main floor."
The April 30 show is the first
outside of the Met in New York for
the orchestra. The orchestra will
also perform at Carnegie Hall and
in Columbus, Ohio. The University
Musical Society, Carnegie Hall and
the Met have been making plans for
the performances for over two
years, Kondziolka said.
He said it was Conductor James
Levine's dream to go on the road.
"It's been known for decades
that one of the most prized orches-
tras is at the Met. It's unfortunate
that the only place to hear it is in
the pit," he said.
"Hill Auditorium is quite a
prestigious place to play. Levine
looked to Ann Arbor on his first
time out," he added.
Soprano Jessye Norman, a
University music school alumna,
will accompany the orchestra. "It*
was one of the few things thae
would make it better," Kondziolka
said. "She obviously performs with
The performance is a benefit for
the University Music Society. "This
is the right sort of event to help us
out," Kondziolka said. "The Society
sponsors a lot of community
outreach programs; they're not all
interested in making money. This is
a good opportunity, because of tho
prestige of the Met, to have a

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) -
As the United States pulls out its
combat troops, a naval armada of 45
ships and 150 warplanes remains in
the Persian Gulf to enforce a U.N.
arms embargo on Iraq and keep
Saddam Hussein in line.
Some U.S. officers say the U.S.
military activity in the Gulf will
probably not extend much beyond
that because Hussein's forces were
seriously weakened by their defeat
in the Gulf War.
One officer, who spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity, summed it up
this way: "We've destroyed his
ability to pose any threat to his
heighbors. The United Nations
Peacekeeping force is in place to pre-
Vent any problems which might
arise and to ensure the security of
Kuwait and its people."
The 1,440-member U.N. force
that will operate in the newly es-
tablished demilitarized zone in Iraq
and Kuwait is small and lightly
Hussein is believed to have sur-
vived Operation Desert Storm with
more than 2,000 tanks and armored
personnel carriers and more than
300 artillery pieces. Sources also say
20 Iraqi divisions were never com-
mitted to the war.
Nonetheless, Iraq did suffer
heavy losses and some observers say
the Iraqis are intimidated by
The U.S.-led allies destroyed
Iraq's infrastructure with massive
air strikes during the war, then
launched a ground assault that drove
Saddam's forces from Kuwait.
U.S. soldiers have been going
home since shortly after the fight-
ing was halted Feb. 27.
U.S. troop strength has been
sliced in half from a peak of 540,000
during the height of the war.
American troops who had occupied
southern Iraq have been withdrawn
to the demilitarized zone and are
waiting to be replaced by the U.N.
About 5,000 troops are leaving
daily and it is expected that all
combat troops will be home in the
weeks ahead. Logistics troops could
be in the Gulf until the end of the
year, cleaning equipment and ship-
ping it back to the United States.
Naval strength has declined by
more than half, from six carrier bat-
tle groups to two and from 120
ships to 45. That has reduced the
number of troops from 92,000 to

Iraq, U.S. agree to discuss refugees

(AP) - Iraqi and U.S. officials
agreed yesterday to hold their first
direct talks in northern Iraq, where

U.S. military teams scouted Iraqi
territory yesterday to search for

Turkey and at the Pentagon said.
The new commander of the U.S.
relief effort for Kurdish refugees
was to meet today in northern Iraq
with an Iraqi military delegation to
discuss ways to avoid any accidental
conflicts during the operation, a
military spokesperson said.
The Baghdad government has
protested the U.S. plan for the new
camps as unnecessary, but yester-
day's announcement of the planned
talks suggested Iraq was willing to

United Nations said Iraq had given

Minutes before the end of the
meeting, Regent Deane Baker (R-
Ann Arbor) made an unexpected
statement in support of a letter run
by four University publications
which called for the administration
to abandon the current interim stu-
dent anti-discrimination code.
While Baker openly supported a
review, Duderstadt said the interim
policy is modeled to allow for mod-

During last year's march, women
marched on Sigma Phi Epsilon's
lawn and shouted, "No more rape,
down with frats" as the fraternity
held a barbecue outside.
Murray Shykind, third-year
Sigma Phi Epsilon member, said
that the women acted with no rea-
son since no rapes have occurred in
"They're trying to give us a bad
image of this, but they had abso-
lutely no justification," he said.
"Having a bunch of women walk
down the street doesn't actually ac-
complish anything to prevent peo-
ple from getting raped. I'm not con-
doning rape. I think rape is terrible,
but this march is silly. There are

Officials expect that finding
sites and building the new refugee
centers will take up to 40 more
days, and some say even those esti-
mates are too optimistic.

some were met by GEO protesters.

said the regents are not directly in-

"This is a collective bargaining is-

for the march and the rally," orga-
nizer Alison Quiring said. "We're
planning on having 40 to 50 monit
tors. We have about 25 so we're hop-

Women who want to monitor

Julie Steiner, director of
SAPAC, said the main problem
with marches has been harassment
of marchers by men.
"The big problem that Take Back
the Night has had has been men on
the sidelines and harassing people,"
she said. "Others have actually come
up and grabbed women. Hopefully,S
that won't happen again. To some
people it's threatening to see 2,000
women marching on their own."
