Panel discusses hopes of
Arias peace proposal
By ANNA BORGMAN
Professors and experts on Central American affairs,
speaking at a Law School panel discussion last Satur-
day, disagreed about the Arias Peace Plan's chances for
Their analysis of the Arias plan, its implementa-
tion, and its future, was the second and last panel of a
one-day conference entitled "Problems and Solutions in
Central America: The Arias Plan."
"The debate had really been limited in the media and
we wanted to bring a broader context to the analysis,"
said second year law student John Tower, executive
secretary of the International Law Society and a mem-
ber of the National Lawyers Guild.
The Arias plan - signed by Honduras, Nicaragua,
Guatemala, Costa Rica, and El Salvador last August -
calls for political liberalization in the five countries,
amnesty for political prisoners, a ban on the use of
territory for aggression against other states, free elec-
tions, and an end to foreign aid for insurgent forces like
"The ink is not dry on this plan... it is a limited
agreement," said Jacqueline Mazza, a U.S. House of
Representatives analyst for Central American affairs.
"It is not in the long run an answer to the Central
Mark Falcoff, of the American Enterprise Institute,
also expressed reservations about the plan, saying "an
outbreak of peace inCentral America is a threat to the
Sandinista regime... I anticipate the Arias plan will
just be one more episode in a lengthy conflict."
University of Pittsburgh Prof. Reid Reading, in
contrast, said the plan has a chance at succeeding with-
out U.S. interference. "The reality of the Central
American policy... is that nothing there affects the na-
tional interest of the United States," he said.
Reiding added that in view of domestic concerns -
such as the number of children living below the
poverty line - the United States is doing "incredibly
irrational things with its energy and resources."
The first panel focused on the region's history and
the economic, political, and social problems facing
Central America today. "We thought it was important
to set a context," Tower said. Speakers on this first
panel represented religious, historical, and political
perspectives. They included Prof. Thomas Walker of
Ohio University, Prof. Dan Levine of the University of
Michigan, and Prof. Knut Walker of the Central
American University in San Salvador.
The conference, which drew about 50 people, was
not as well attended as sponsors had hoped. First year
law student and member of the International Law Soci-
ety Rich McDaniel said, "We would've liked more
people. But it's hard on a beautiful Saturday after-
Three student law associations, the Hispanic Law
Students Association, the International Law Society,
and the National Lawyers Guild, sponsored the confer-

of men - about half the viewers -
who attended the exhibit.
"All the men pretty much agreed
with what we had to say. We wanted
to get our point across, but we did
not want to offend men," Weaver
said. She added that the exhibit, in
East Quad, probably attracted more
men because the word "women"
wasn't in its title.

which Shapiro and Weaver based the
photo of the two men read: "If men
could menstruate street guys would

praise from a buddy "Man, you
One unidentified man disagreed
with Steinem's text, part of an arti-
cle, saying it is pompous and as-
sumed things that are not necessarily
true. But another man said

thighs. Shapiro and Weaver added
their own caption: "Drink Me?"
