destroyer was tracking an Iraqi vessel
Sunday in the Persian Gulf after the ship

In Washington, Pentagon spokesman
Lt. Col. Steve Roy said the incident was
one of about a dozen cases in which
U.S. ships have fired warning shots to
enforce trade sanctions on Iraq.
The U.S. destroyer O'Brien fired
several shots across the bow of the al
Bahar al-Arabi after the ship did not
answer its radio and ignored commands
to stop, Roy said.
U.S. military sources in Dhahran,
Saudi Arabia said the vessel was headed
for Aden, Yemen and was being tracked
by Italian and U.S. warships.
The United States and a dozen other
nations are participating in the naval
armada in the gulf region to back the
trade sanctions with miltary might.
down Soviet reactor
BERLIN The new German gov
ernment will shut down the last Soviet
made nuclear reactor in what was East
Germany because the reactor is unsafe,
an Environment Ministry spokesman
The spokesman, Berthold Goeke, said
in a telephone interview from Bonn that
the last operating reactor at the
Greifswald power plant in northeastern
Germany would be shut down by mid
December. Three other reactors at the Greifswald
plant and another reactor at an older
plant in Rheinsberg, just north of Ber
lin, were shut down earlier this year. All
are Soviet-designed plants.
Soviet-designed nuclear powerplants
throughout Eastern Europe have come
under heavy criticism from Western
environmental officials for failing to
meet safety standards.
The use of nuclear power is a sensi
tive issue in Germany, which has a
powerful network of anti-nuclear
groups. The 1986 Chernobyl nuclear
disaster in the Soviet Union helped fuel
the anti-nuclear movement.

JERUSALEM An Arab laborer
shouting "God is Great!" stabbed three
Israelis to death Sunday as he rampaged

One victim managed to shoot and
wound the attacker, who was then seized

in the Baka area of southern Jerusalem,
The attack inflamed tensions in the
capital and brought in a stream of police

A predicted $658 million state rev
enue shortfall for 1991-92 should not
affect University funding this year, al
though the full implications on the
University's future are unknown. Uni
versity officials said Sunday.
The state budget office predicted
revenue shortfalls for the next four years
last Wednesday. The office cited a
slowing state economy and rising oil
prices as reasons for the shortfall.
Ben Tuchi, vice chancellor of busi
ness and finance, said the University's
budget plan for the remainder of the
year had not been affected by predictions
of additional state budget woes.
The University is operating now
under a plan that incorporates a $7.3
million cash reduction into its budget
plan for the remaining three quarters of
the 1990-1991 fiscal year.
The reduction, on which the state
budget office and University officials
agreed over a month ago, did not change
after news of the shortfall, Tuchi said.
The General Assembly cut 3 percent
of the University's base budget and an
additional 1.7 percent from the
University's first quarter allotment this
Although he did not expect it to in
crease, he said "There is always that
There was no way to predict, how
ever, what effect predicted revenue
shortfalls would have on the University.

speculation," he said. "We would also

SEAC protests Exxon recroitmeiit
By DI0NNE L0Y
About 25 people marched from the
Pit to Mitchell Hall to protest Exxon
recruitment on campus Friday.
The protesters carried signs such as
"Exxon job hunters, can you bring your
conscience to your work?" and "Hell
no, we won't go, we won't fight for
Texaco!" Members of the Student En
vironmental Action Coalition, the Stu
dent Committee for Peace in the Middle
East, the Arch County Greens and
Grandmothers for Peace participated in
The demonstrators circulated two
flyers listing policies of Exxon which
they believe are environmentally ques
tionable and citing conservation legis
lation which they claim was blocked by
Heaven, and the eood Lord decides to have a nwk-un Qnmp
what they might do."
Provost Dennis O'Connor also said
it would be difficult to predict if esti
mates of future shortfalls could have
any effect on the University's cash al
lotments for this year.
There is no sense in even trying to
contemplate what might happen to the
University's budget or cash situation
until the legislature convenes and makes
certain decisions regarding state rev
enue, O'Connor said.
"One doesn't know what the legis
lature is going to do in terms of revenue
enhancement," he said.
But if the legislature fails to raise
taxes or enact some other form of rev
enue enhancement, the University, as
well as other state agencies would have
financial problems, O'Connor said.
Rep. Joe Hackney, D-Orange, said it
would be risky to make a prediction on
what the General Assembly might do
until the Nov. 6 elections were over.
"I think it's very much up in the air
now," Hackney said. "It's in the hands
of the voters."
Hackney, who said he favors taxes
instead of additional cuts to state
agencies, said the legislature has a clear
option available. "They have a very
clear choice whether to cut state services
and education further or whether to
enact revenue bills," he said.
The prospect of the General Assem
bly reallocating funds from the highway
fund to the general fund was slim, he
said. The highway fund has received
too much money too fast, but it has a lot
of support in the legislature and probably
would not get cut regardless of the
election outcomes, he said.

large corporations such as Exxon.
Jeff Jones, a member of the Student
Committee for Peace in the Middle East,
said all the groups protesting believed
some large corporations were so con
cerned with profit that they block leg

linked the blockage of conservation
legislation to the Persian Gulf crisis,
which he claims the United States is
involved in because of economic rea
sons. "Essentially the problem is similar
for all the groups here," Jones said. "All
efforts to conserve oil have been blocked
for profit reasons, and now they expect
us to risk our lives to protect this profit."
