O Source of All Love and Compassion -                                         
                                                                               
We pause this morning to ask for wisdom and guidance as we                    
journey through this day with all of its responsibilities.  As we              
enter this week around the world when people are called to                     
remember the victims of the Holocaust, cause us to be ever                     
mindful that each word we speak, each deed we do, each                         
thought of our minds and hearts makes a difference.  Cause us                  
to be the ones who push evil and hate aside and encourage us                   
to be the harbingers of peace and compassion for all people.                   
And when we get weary from the efforts of what we do, give                     
us rest and encouragement to continue on the path before us.                   
Amen.

only from June 30, 1996, through no later than December 31, 1996.              
	(b) Under a plan adopted under this section, the administrator may            
not accept the application of an employee unless the employee will be          
appointed to retirement on or before July 1, 1997.  The University of
