Ghanaian domestic architecture and pottery.

2) World news roundup

* Paul Hill, the anti-abortionist convicted of the 1994 shooting death of
an abortion doctor and his bodyguard at a Florida clinic, was executed by the
state yesterday. Calling himself a martyr, Hill expressed no regrets before
his execution and reportedly said as his last words, “If you believe abortion
is a lethal force, you should oppose the force and do what you have to stop
it. May God help you to protect the unborn as you would want to be protected.”
Abortion rights activists are worried that Hill’s execution will reawaken anti-abortion
violence. Anonymous death threats have already been sent to the judge who sentenced

* The U.S. presented a draft resolution to members of the U.N. Security Council
yesterday, proposing a U.S.-led multinational force in Iraq and an expanded
role for the U.N. in reconstructing Iraq’s political future, though the U.S.-appointed
Iraqi Governing Council would still have the dominant role. The draft was presented
to Secretary-General Kofi Annon as well as ambassadors from Great Britain, France,
Russia, and Germany. Secretary of State Colin Powell reported that initial reaction
was positive, although there was no indication yet how much the resolution swayed
attitudes about the U.S. presence in Iraq. The full Security Council is expected
to receive the draft by the end of the week, before the General Assembly convenes
on September 23.

* U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema ordered the U.S. government to allow
accused September 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui and his lawyers access to
two al Qaeda captives for a deposition that could possibly lead to witness testimony
in Moussaoui’s trial. In a similar ruling earlier this year, Brinkema ordered
prosecutors to allow Moussaoui to question the accused coordinator of the attacks,
Rami bin al-Shaibah, but Justice Department lawyers refused on national security
grounds. Continued refusal from the government could lead to the dismissal of
the case from civilian court, although sources believe that the government would
then try Moussaoui before a military tribunal.

the defensive end, it was a newcomer, Erica George ’07, who starred with 13

Jonna Seavey ’06 said, “This was the best volleyball match I have seen
at Swat. The first set was very tight, but we regrouped on the second to take
it quite easily. The last two sets were hard-fought.”

Over the last weekend Swarthmore placed fifth in the Skidmore Early Bird Tournament,
falling to RIT and SUNY-Cortland and defeating SUNY-New Paltz.
