1) World news roundup

* Ariel Sharon’s fragile ruling coalition collapsed yesterday when the
Labour party pulled out of the arrangement after clashing with Sharon on
settlement issues.  The Labour leaders had called for Sharon to divert
funding earmarked for settlers in the West Bank and Gaza Strip to the poor
and elderly, and when Sharon would not budge, the Party’s senior officials
resigned from the government.  Sharon has already begun attempts to
re-establish a coalition amongst right-wing and religious groups, trying to
withstand a no-confidence vote on Monday led by the left-wing Meretz party,
and to buy time before an intra-party showdown with ex-Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu.

* Russia, China, and France voiced concerns in the United Nations yesterday
that America’s draft of an Iraq resolution still leaves the US with too much
leeway for acting unilaterally given certain circumstances.  The countries,
each of whom possess veto power within the UN’s Security Council, warned
that America’s insistence on having automatic military response provisions
written into the resolution may sink its attempts to get the doctrine
enacted quickly.  Secretary of State Colin Powell, meanwhile, argued that
the US would not accept any UN restraints on its ability to act, citing
already-provided Congressional support for such action.

* Walter Mondale was officially named as the replacement for the late
Senator Paul Wellstone in Minnesota’s ongoing senatorial race yesterday.
Mondale, who was both VP for Jimmy Carter and the Democratic presidential
candidate in 1984, will be up against former former St. Paul Mayor Norm
Coleman.  The 74-year-old Mondale is leading Coleman by eight percentage
points according to an early poll – the same margin that Wellstone possessed
when his plane crashed in northern Minnesota last week.

1) Women’s soccer tops Fords, sets record

The women’s soccer team steamrolled arch-rival Haverford yesterday 4-0, en
route to setting a new mark for season success.  Tanya Hahnel ’05 scored
twice for the Garnet, while fellow soph Ele Forbes added a goal to go with
her three assists.  Meanwhile, Catherine Salussolia ’04 was perfect in net,
recording nine saves to earn the shutout.  With the victory, the Garnet’s
record improves to 10-9 overall on the season – the most wins the squad has
ever notched in a single campaign.  Additionally, the win was the team’s
first over Haverford in eight years and capped the Garnet’s second season
with a winning record in its 20-year history.


2) Washington defeats men’s soccer

Outshot 19-7 in yesterday’s contest at Washington College, the men’s soccer
team fell to the Shoremen 3-1.  Nate Shupe ’05 did his best in net, tallying
11 saves.  However, frosh Charlie Taylor’s lone goal for the Garnet (a
team-leading fifth score of the season) was not enough, as the squad fell to
5-12-1 overall and 0-8 in the Centennial Conference.  The team will close
out their season this Saturday when they host Haverford at 1:00 p.m.


3) Volleyball downed by Haverford

The volleyball team was defeated by Haverford last night, 3-0 (30-27, 30-13,
30-16).  The Garnet are now 5-19 on the year and 1-8 in the Centennial, and
will finish off their season with a tri-match at home this weekend.


4) Upcoming contests

Field hockey hosts Gettysburg, 3:30 p.m.

There are no contests scheduled for tomorrow.
