Forum discusses aid to Africa
By KERY MURAKAMI
Although the afternoon speech by
Vice President George Bush captured
most of the attention yesterday, the
actual kickoff for the Peace Corps'
25th anniversary began at 9 a.m. in
the Rackham Assembly Hall.
There, experts on Africa's
economic and political development
agreed that the U.S. sends monetary
aid to the continent more for political
and humanitarian reasons that out of
concern for Africa's economic impact
on the country.
THEIR comments were part of a
two-day conference on America's role
in African development.
Dr. Elliot Berg, a consultant to the
World Bank and a former director of
the University's Center for Research
on Economic Development, pointed
out that trade connections between

the United States and Africa are
The United States receivesa 6 per-
cent of Africa's total exports and
makes up only 3 percent of that coun-
try's total imports. And two-thirds of
these U.S. exports are concentrated in
South Africa and Nigeria, according
HOWEVER, ZHE SAID THE U.S.
has humanitarian interests. "We have
the responsibility to fend off famine
anywhere on this planet," he said.
"Faster economic growth probably
means more stable politics," he said,
"in the case of political and social
inequality, there will probably be
flashpoints of big power conflicts,
which is never in the interests of the
U.S. or the Soviet Union."
He said an increase in U.S. military
aid, which means less money for
agricultural and other economic aid,
has been a problem. Since 1978,
military aid to African nations has
risen from $150 million to $335 million.
HERSCHELLE - Challenor, a
political science professor at
Brooklyn College,. agreed that
political concerns are the main reason
for U.S. aid to Africa.
"The U.S. took very few steps in
aiding (Africa's) decolonization (in
the '50s), out of fear of alienating
Europe." Since then, America's main
concern in Africa is as "a piece of
property to keep away from the Soviet
Union," she said.
She said the U.S. gives Israel $23
billion in aid, while it gives African
nations $13 million in aid.
Anthropology Prof. Elliot Skinner of
Columbia University said the U.S.
may have a "mindset" against giving
Africa aid, because its sympathies
traditionally lie with England. Many
African nations were once colonies of
the United Kingdom.
Niara Sudarkasa, the University's
assistant to the vice president for
academic affairs, opened the sym-
posium by reading a letter from Sen.
Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.). The
senator's brother, John Kennedy, in-
troduced the idea of a peace corps 25
years ago yesterday on the steps of
"I take particular pleasure in
joining in celebrating the anniversary
of when my brother Jack stood on the
steps of the Michigan Union,

Bush PAC organizes in Michigan
By NANCY DRISCOLL
Gearing up for the 1986 elections in
Detroit yesterday, Vice President
George Bush announced he will
represent the state on his national
political action committee.
Bush would not say whether he has
decided to make a bid for the
presidency in 1988, but in a speech at
the Briarwood Hilton last night he-
called the Fund for America's Future
"my political lifeblood."
EVEN IF he opts not to run for the
presidency, Bush said his fund will
help Republicans get elected.
"What I see as a priority is to keep
control of the U.S. Senate," Bush told
the crowd of about 200.
"We've got a big job to do in '86," he
said after the speech. "I'm the last of
those mentioned to run in '88 to start a
PAC - Kemp has one, Dole has one -
and (ours) is going to be a good one."
POTENTIAL candidates are
organizing early in Michigan because
the state's 1986 precinct delegate elec-
tions next May could have a
significant impact on the makeup of
its delegation to the 1988 Republican
"1988 looms uo in the spring of '86 in
the state of Michigan," Bush said.
Because Michigan's is the earliest
caucus in the nation, the vice
president believes forming the
steering committee now will help
protect him if he decides to run in
University Political Science Prof.
Raymond Tantner said yesterday that
-he was asked to join the steerin
panel, aothough his name was not'on'
the initial list of members. He said he
accepted the offer.
Carl Edelman, chairman of Colleg%
Republicans, was also appointed to,
Among the 660 other membersaqfi'
the state steering panel are Senate-
Republican leader John Engler Vof
Mount Pleasant and House=
Republican Leader Michael Busch 'CA".
Saginaw. Thirty-seven of the 52 House:
Republicans and half of the 20 Senate
GOP members were also chosen for,
the panel. A
Bush also announced yesterday the
15 Michigan members serving on the
fund's National Steering Committee.
