brutality and some have said the al-
leged brutality was racially motivated.
Hardesty is white; Johnson is black.
EMU junior Willie Green said Johnson
hit Hardesty inadvertently after being
sprayed with the chemical irritant.
Johnson'sgirlfirend, YanishaGreenwas
present at the fight and shares permament
Pontiac address with Willie Green.
Some students with ties to the inci-
dent also have connections with area
Willie Green, who is also a cartoonist
for the Eastern Echo, EMU's student
newspaper, has published drawings
condemning Johnson's arrest.
Sharnola Green, who is listed in the
EMU student directory as having the
same permanent Pontiac address as both
Willie and Yanisha Green and who is
Yanisha Green's roommate at Eastern,
has written multiple articles for the Echo
about the incident.
Sharnola Green has also published
an article about the fight in the
Washtenaw Enquirer, an African
American weekly publication.
In a telephone interview last night,
the Enquirer's publisher refusedto com-
Ment publicly on the situation.
Echo Editor in Chief Amy Colegrove
could not be reached for comment.

School administrators have not
counted out racism or brutality as figur-
ing into the arrest.
Police reports say the officers involved
were trying to stop a fight between sev-
eral women in a residence hall.
According to Hardesty'sreport, when
he got to the scene, "Officer (Donna)
Carcone was in Downing Hall with 10
people fighting." He said Carcone was
bent over two people engaged in a fight,
with a group surrounding them.
Hardesty then yelled at the group to
stop, reports say. Whenhe got no response,
and saw several other fights begin break-
ing out, he maced the entire group and
backed away. The reports say Johnson
then rushed toward the area.
Johnson's arrest spurred several
demonstrations from black students
and activists in his support. A large
group of students interrupted an EMU
basketball game in protest Monday
night, and students filled Johnson's
preliminary hearing Tuesday. Tues-
day night, more than 60 black stu-
dents urged the EMU Student Gov-
ernment to take action.
Michael Kortan, the student body
president, said Tuesday night that while
the large turnout at the meeting was
good, it was disappointing.
"It should not take an incident like
what happened with Aaron to rally stu-
dent support here," Kortan said.

Authorities link Salinas'
brother to Swiss accounts


Galileo will probe Jupiter's atmosphere

Los Angeles Times
MEXICO CITY -Afterseveral days
of closed-door meetings and interroga-
tions, Swiss and Mexican authorities
confirmed here yesterday that the elder
brother of former President Carlos Sali-
nas de Gortari amassed at least $100
million in suspected drug money and is
the target of an international money-
laundering investigation.
Switzerland's top federal prosecu-
tor, Carla del Ponte, on an official visit
to Mexico to oversee the probe, said in
a statement that she and her top counter-
narcotics agents positively linked a se-
ries of Swiss bank accounts to Raul
Salinas de Gortari after sitting in on
interrogations of him at a prison near
Mexico City, where he is being held on
murder charges.
The Swiss government, she said,
launched the investigation afterthe U.S.
Drug Enforcement Administration sup-
plied information that led Swiss agents
to the accounts in Geneva, where they
arrested Raul Salinas' wife and her
brother on Nov. 15 as the pair attempted
to withdraw more than $83 million.
Mexican authorities confirmed yes-

terday that those and other accounts now
frozen by the Swiss government contain
more than $100 million. Authorities ear-
lier reported that Raul Salinas used a
fake name to open the accounts.
"In the investigations, it was discov-
ered that the beneficial owner is Mr.
Raul Salinas de Gortari," del Ponte's
statement said. "For that reason, Swiss
and Mexican authorities are jointly in-
vestigating these facts. Due to the se-
crecy of the proceedings, Swiss au-
thorities cannot reveal more informa-
tion on the case at this time."
U.S. and Mexican investigators pri-
vately have told the Los Angeles Times
that Raul Salinas' accounts in Switzer-
land and elsewhere in Europe may well
exceed $250 million. They said they are
investigating whether the money was
from Mexico's powerful drug cartels,
which supply the U.S. with billions of
dollars in cocaine each year.
Mexican prosecutors said Raul Salinas
also is under investigation for possible
embezzlement or extortion, after they dis-
closed that he moved millions of dollars
through more than 40 bank accounts dur-
ing the decade he served in public office.

LOS ANGELES - After nearly two decades of trying to get the Galileo
spacecraft to Jupiter, the moment has arrived.
This afternoon, the spacecraft's 746-pound probe must enter Jupiter's atmo-
sphere at exactly the right angle to begin transmitting data. If not, it could be
hurtled into oblivion or meet a quick, fiery demise.
"We have everything crossed we can cross - fingers and toes and all like that.
It's certainly nervous time," said William O'Neil, Galileo project manager at
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena.
If everything works, "it's just going to be certainly the greatest day in the
professional careers of many, many people," said O'Neil, who's worked on the
mission since 1977, when Congress approved it.
But radio messages signaling success or failure will take 52 minutes to travel
from Jupiter to Earth. Meanwhile, NASA scientists will be sweating.
Any error could dash hopes pinned on Galileo's six-year, 2.3 billion-mile
journey. First, the 2 1/2-ton Galileo orbiter must withstand heavy radiation on its
way toward the giant gaseous planet.
The probe is supposed to start sending atmosphere data to the orbiter at about
5 p.m. today. And the probe has only a maximum of 75 minutes to relay
information on atmospheric conditions, before the orbiter must break off contact.

LUSAKA, Zambia - Hundreds of
Zambian soldiers seeking revenge for a
comrade's death killed a villager,
slaughtered livestock and burned 2,000
huts, according to police and newspa-

Paramilitary units were brought to
Zambia's sparsely populated north-cen-
tral region after troops from the Lukonga
military training camp reportedly looted

soldiers of flirting with their wives and
causing other problems.
A soldier and four civilians were
under arrest yesterday on charges linked

soldier was killed during a Monday
night brawl at a party.
