Today: Mostly sunny. High around 82.
Boy, I’m glad the wind has calmed down from earlier this week.

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Low near 60.
For a while there, I thought I was trapped in “The Wizard of Oz”.

Saturday: Partly cloudy early; increasing clouds late. High of 82.
I kept expecting buildings to get swept up and winged monkeys to come
flying out of the bell tower.

Come to think of it, though, that would’ve been kinda cool.

1) World news roundup

* President Bush yesterday asked the United Nations to force Iraq to
disarm, calling action “unavoidable” if Baghdad did not comply. While U.N.
Secretary-General Kofi Annan supported the U.S. in demanding that Iraq
comply with all new and existing U.N. resolutions, he urged multilateral
action in enforcing the resolutions and warned the U.S. against taking
military action alone. “When states decide to use force to deal with broad
threats to international peace and security there is no substitute for the
unique legitimacy provided by the United Nations.” Bush countered that
“Saddam Hussein’s regime is a grave and gathering danger” and asked if the
U.N. would “serve the purpose of its founding irrelevant?”

* A Palestinian was killed and seven others wounded in an Israeli sweep for
militants on Palestinian refugee camps in the Gaza Strip. Eight Israeli
soldiers were also wounded from the gun battle that resulted from the raid.
Witnesses reported that an Israeli helicopter fired at least one missile at
a ground target, while 50 tanks entered the area and armored troops
conducted house searches. Troops also reportedly destroyed six foundries
used by the militant group Hamas to manufacture rockets.

* Alan Greenspan advised Congress yesterday that the government must return
to controlled spending if the economy is to recover. Having withstood the
falling stock markets, decreased investment, and the September 11 terrorist
attacks, the economy has survived but is still at risk from prolonged
budget deficits, Greenspan said. He also  maintained his opinion that last
year’s tax cut package was a step in the right direction.

1) Volleyball falls to Arcadia

In a tough game marked by errors and a fiercely offensive Arcadia Knights
team, the volleyball squad lost last night in three sets (30-9, 29-31,
20-30). Though the Garnet struggled for a comeback in the second set, they
could not hold on to win. Said senior captain Erika Doyle, “We made a lot
of mistakes and the Knights used their offensive prowess to take
advantage.” With a 1-1 record, the Garnet will enter the Richard Stockton
Tournament this Saturday.


2) In a tough game, women’s soccer defeats arch rival Bryn Mawr

The women’s soccer team won a nail-biter against the Mawrters yesterday as
Shavaugn Lewis ’05 scored the game’s lone goal. The Garnet struggled early,
as the ball remained in Swat territory for the first 20 minutes of the
game, but Lewis managed to get the ball in the back of the net. Goalie Cat
Salussolia ’04 played extremely well, even against the first half Bryn Mawr
assault. The team next faces Delaware Valley at noon on Saturday here at
Swarthmore, hoping to better their 4-1 record.
