Students riot as bars close
ATHENS, Ohio (AP>—Nearly 50
people were arrested after two distur
bances in this Ohio University town
early Sunday, one of them involving a
brawl between two fraternities, police
Hie biggest confrontation involved
about 1,000 people, who gathered in
the center of the city outside bars that
cater to university students, police
Chief Richard Mayer said.
When the bars closed at 2 a.m.,
people in the crowd began throwing
bottles, eggs, road flares and bottle
rockets. One officer was hit by a bottle.
Police said an earlier closing be
cause of the change to daylight-sav

One student said he was struck by
“After about an hour and 45 min
utes they brought out tear gas and
clubs,” senior Jay Kulpa told WBNS
TV in Columbus.
Police communications officer
James Mann said officers used batons
only to push people back and did not
use tear gas.
About 70 officers were sent to the
scene of the 214-hour melee. They fired
four rounds of stinging wooden pel
lets, the police department said.
The other disturbance, about an
hour before the bars closed, involved
up to 30 members of the Pi Kappa

Potential explosion forces space shuttle’s return
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.—Space shuttle Columbia and its seven
astronauts will return to Earth on Tuesday, 12 days earlier than planned,
because of a deteriorating and potentially explosive power generator.
It is only the third time in space shuttle history that a mission has
been cut short by equipment failure.
While NASA considered commander James Halsell Jr. and his crew
to-be in no immediate danger, shuttle managers did not want to take
any chances with the generator and, on Sunday, cut short the 16-day
The fear was that hydrogen fuel and oxygen in the degraded gen
erator could mix, overheat and blow up if voltage in the unit dropped
far enough. Flight controllers had the astronauts turn off the unit Sun
day to reduce, if not eliminate, that risk. The crew also shut down all
non-critical equipment to conserve power.
UJS. pleads for renewed Palestinian-Israeli peace talks
WASHINGTON — U.S. officials pleaded Sunday for Israeli and
Palestinian leaders to shed their hardline stances and renew face-to
face consultations as President Clinton prepared to meet with Israeli
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat insists building must stop on an •
Israeli housing project in east Jerusalem before longstanding disagree
ments can be resolved. Netanyahu pressed his case Sunday with his
closest friend among Arab leaders, King Hussein of Jordan, who was
recovering from prostate surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
The U.S. government, meanwhile, urged the two sides to agree to a
face-to-face meeting to salvage a shaky Middle East peace process.
“The United States remains committed to securing a just, lasting
and comprehensive peace between Israel and her neighbors,” said Bill
Richardson, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. “But, in the end,
the success of the process depends on the willingness of the Palestin
ians and the Israelis to work together as negotiating partners.”
