Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - November 13, 1997, Burlington, Iowa Sports: W-MU makes first appearance at state volleyball    .    IBThe Hawk Eye 161st year — No. 127 BURLINGTON, IOWA Security Council condemns Iraq THURSDAY NOVEMBER 13, 1997 50 cents ■ U.N. vote unanimous: Despite threat, Saddam showing no signs of backing down. The Associated Press UNITED NATIONS - In a unanimous vote, the U.N. Security Council condemned Iraq, imposed a travel ban and warned of “further measures” Wednesday unless Iraq reverses its decision to expel American arms inspectors. Iraq’s deputy prime minister immediately rejected the U.N. demand and U.S. Ambassador Bill Richardson warned “the crisis with Iraq is not over.” “The message has been clear: Iraq must comply or face consequences,” Richardson said after the vote. “We are not precluding any option, including the military option.” Appearing later on MSNBC, Richardson said the United States believes it does not need to receive council permission to launch a military strike, although a decision to attack has not yet been made. “But I would say that Iraq would provoke an international reaction if they tampered with the next U-2 flight, which is an essential part of the U.N.’s activity, and secondly were to expel the Americans or the inspectors from the U.N.’s teams,” Richardson said. Russian Ambassador Sergey Lavrov told reporters that the crisis with Iraq was “headed for deadlock.” “It’s very dangerous.” The government of Saddam Hussein, meanwhile, showed no signs of backing down on its vow to kick American inspectors out of Iraq. Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz, speaking in New York, declared that his government “refuses this resolution.” “Iraq will continue to defend its legitimate rights by all means,” Aziz said. In Baghdad, Iraqi Foreign Minister Mohammed Said al-Sahhaf said the Americans would “definitely” be expelled but gave no timetable. Iraq had suspended the expulsion order until the 15-member council finished debate. The council refused a request by Aziz to be allowed to present Iraq’s case in a special session. The Baghdad government has turned back inspection teams nine of the last IO days because they included Americans.

The Associated Press WASHINGTON - Taking their investigation to the highest level, FBI agents and federal prosecutors interrogated President Clinton and Vice President Al Gore about questionable campaign fund-raising calls. The interviews — which took place Tuesday but were not disclosed until Wednesday — came three weeks before Attorney General Janet Reno must decide whether to seek a special prosecutor to carry the investigation beyond the preliminary stage. Clinton Gore Neither Clinton nor Gore was under oath, although it is a felony in any case to lie to the FBI. Both men have publicly denied any wrongdoing.

At 124 schools in Iowa, including four-year colleges, com munity colleges and trade schools, 7.5 percent of students defaulted on student loans that came due in fiscal 1995. The national rate was 10.4 percent. Iowa had the 14th-best loan default rate among the 50 states and Washington, D.C. Among the four-year colleges with the lowest rates were Northwestern College at 1.1 percent and Mount Mercy College in Cedar Rapids at 1.2 percent. Both are private. Northwestern spokesman Duane Beeson said there are several reasons for the school’s low default rate, including a 97 percent placement rate. “We are a Christian college and students that come here are ones that have a strong sense of character and feel a moral obligation to repay their debts,”See Loans page 5A>Anti-baldness pill awaits FDA nod The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Popping a pill to regrow hair? It sounds too good to be true, but balding men may soon get that option. The Food and Drug Administration’s scientific advisers will decide today whether to let Merck & Co. sell the first anti-baldness pill to American men, whose only hope now is to slather Rogaine on their scalps. Merck’s Propecia is a once-a-day pill that promises to help regrow hair — and prevent more from falling out — by suppressing a hormone that shrinks hair follicles. It’s not a miracle cure, cautions Dr. Ronald Savin, a dermatologist in New Haven, Conn., who helped test the drug. The new hair “is not like anybody ever had when they were 13,” Savin said. But “it is an obvious difference. ... I’ve got to tell you, I’ve seen the pictures — the before and after — and it’s impressive.”See Bald page 5A> Input sparse on city manager ■ Replacing Wood: Only 6 turn out for session with City Council at Memorial Auditorium. By Linda Taylor The Hawk Eye Former City Manager Jane Wood left Burlington more than a month ago, but she continues to surface as the search for her replacement intensifies. Four citizens and two city staff members attended a public input session Wednesday at Memorial Auditorium to tell City Council members what qualifications they want to see in a new city manager. Next week, the council will narrow the field of 88 candidates to 15. One of the main qualifications Wednesday’s participants want to see is better communication between the public and City Hall — a trait some residents believe Wood lacked. John R. Sandell thinks Wood wasn’t a very good at building a consensus. She didn’t go out and get ideas from the community before an issue was brought to City Council, he said. Sandell cited the crossing guard issue as an example, adding it sounded like a staff recommendation “coming from on high,” rather than asking citizens for their input or ideas. The council is considering whether it wants to renew its 28E agreement with the school district to provide funding for school crossing guards. The city is not as much concerned about the money aspect of the pact as it is the liability issue. Councilman-elect Mike Edwards agreed that dealing with the public might not have been one of Wood’s strengths. “The public perception was that Wood was not a consensus builder,” he said. Resident George Shaw angrily reiterated that perception by telling council members he wanted a city manager who would do what the council wanted and not the other way around. Shaw said he was unhappy when nobody was punished for “Keygate,” an incident in which Wood determined a lost set of city keys was an administrative See Input page 5A> Burlington City Council members, from left Bill Wright Don Henry, Tim Scott and Jeff Heland listen Wednesday as George Shaw, right gives his views on city government at Memorial Auditorium.
