Message from Bush
broadcast on Iraqi TV
BAGHDAD, IRAQ President
Bush's message to the Iraqi people was
"full of lies and contradictions," and a
"thundering rage" is building up against
the Arab world, an Iraqi TV commen
tator said Sunday.
Mikdad Morad, the announcer who
normally reads statements from Presi
dent Saddam Hussein, also warned B ush
that a showdown in the Gulf will end "in
a catastrophe" for U.S. forces.
Mordad spoke immediately after
Bush's eight-minute taped message was
broadcast on Iraqi TV, with an Arabic
voice-over and captions provided by
the U.S. State Department.
Bush, in his message, told the Iraqis:
"Iraq stands isolated and alone."
"Saddam Hussein tells you that this
crisis is a struggle between Iraq and
America. In fact, it is Iraq against the
world," said Bush.
B ut, he said, "War is not inevitable. It
is still possible to bring this crisis to a

KHAFJI, Saudi Arabia Kuwaitis
flooded into Saudi Arabia Sunday with
tales of terror and anarchy at home as
word spread that Iraq had opened the
border for the first time in a month.
At least 1,500 refugees were expected
to cross over Sunday, border officials
said. About 1,000 crossed Saturday,
and they gave grim reports of dwindling
food supplies and Iraqi troops destroy
ing the homes of suspected resistance
The Iraqis made no announcement of
the border opening, and refugees could
only speculate on why they had done so.
Gorbachev to resign
MOSCOW Tens of thousands of
demonstrators marched to the Kremlin
Sunday demanding that President
Mikhail Gorbachev and his prime
minister resign to take responsibility
for the country's economic crisis.
"The Economy is a Disaster," read
banners carried by the crowd, which
gathered under heavy rain at Gorky
Park, crossed the Moscow River and
then headed for central Moscow, where
they listened to speeches just outside
The crowd of about 50,000 followed
the same path taken by demonstrators
earlier this year. Many marchers carried
white, blue and red Russian flags from
the pre-Bolshevik era, and they shouted
"Gorbachev resign!""Ryshkov resign!"

Florida Lotto jackpot of an estimated

the system's future.
"The quality of our current program

Budget accord vital,
to assure student aid
By BRIAN LYNNE
Student grants and loans for the 1991
92 academic year could suffer sub
stantial cuts from the federal government
if an agreement in accordance with the
Gramm-Rudman Act is not reached
before Oct. 1.
Eleanor Morris, director of the UNC
Office of Scholarships and Student Aid,
said it was difficult to know precisely
what effects the failure to meet the
Gramm-Rudman requirements would
have on grants and loans for students.
"It is certain both would be hurt
substantially, but it's too early to know
how much," she said. "Grants would be
hurt much worse than loans, but we
really don't know what programs the
government would cut within education.
It would be very serious if an agreement
is not reached and as a result seques
tration occurred, but we should not be
alarmist about the situation."
Under the Gramm-Rudman Act,
federal budget negotiators must come
within $10 billion of paying off the
projected national budget deficit for the

Don BeAimon, an assistant to Rep.
David Price (D-N.C), in Washington,
D.C., said the budget , negotiators had
limited methods to decrease the deficit.

the provisions of the act," he said. "But

Lawmakers have not made any de
cision yet about which programs to cut,
BeArmon said. Before cuts are made, it
is difficult to determine which programs
in education will be affected specifically.
The cuts will not be felt immediately
by the University.
Morris said UNC had already re
ceived its money for this academic year
so students will not be affected until
next year if cuts are made.

Morris said general student grants
and student loans probably would not
be cut as much as the research grants.
"In all probability, general student
grants would not be cut that much, and
student loans would not drop (more
than) 30 percent," she said. "About $3
million, which comprises 20 percent of,
