Unlike other commemoratory
weeks and months celebrated on
campus, National Women's History
Month has not enjoyed much public-
The only campus event celebrat-
ing Women's History Month will be
a series of workshops and lectures
this weekend exploring women's is-
sues. The East Quad Representative
Assembly and the Residence Halls
Association are sponsoring the 23rd
annual Women's Weekend, "Mental
and Physical Empowerment: Women
"It's a celebration of women and
issues that are pertinent to them and
society," said RC sophomore Jaimie
Hammerling, one of the event's or-
Event coordinator and RC senior
Megan Barber said the workshops
were important to her because they
address all aspects of women: men-
tal, physical and spiritual.
"It embodies all of women and
that was important to me," she said.
"I like the idea of celebrating woman
as a whole."

form border force
VILNIUS, U.S.S.R. (AP) -
Hundreds of Lithuanian youths vol-
unteered yesterday to serve as the
breakaway republic's customs and
frontier guards despite a Kremlin
warning not to change border secu-
Lithuanian President Vytautas
Landsbergis said the warning from
Moscow actually marked the begin-
ning of negotiations on the Baltic
republic's demand for independence.
He said Lithuania agreed with much
of the Kremlin statement, including
the order to maintain trade tics.
Lithuania declared itself indepen-
dent on March 11, 50 years after it
was occupied by the Red Army and
annexed to the Soviet Union. The
Soviet Parliament declared the decree
invalid but did not say what steps it
would take to stop the republic from
In a stern warning to Lithuania
on Monday, the Kremlin ordered its
own ministries to ensure there were
no interruptions in customs and
frontier procedures and in trade,
transport, and communications.
"I served two years in the occu-
pying army, and now I want to serve
in my country's," said a young man
as he rushed to turn in his applica-
tion in a cramped office in the
Lithuanian capital's center. Lithua-
nian officials said there were no
plans to arm the border force.
The symbolic value of the force
may help convince other govern-
ments that Lithuania is controlling
its territory and should be formally
recognized as a full-fledged country,
said Edward Tuskenis of the republic
parliament's information center.
The small Baltic republic was
quiet yesterday, with none of the dis-
turbing signs of Soviet troop
movements that intimidated the
population over the weekend. Offi-
cials said there also were no signs of
an economic blockade by Moscow.
"We are still receiving gas and
oil," Lithuania's two most critical
imports from the Soviet Union, said
Prime Minister Kazimera Prun-
Telephone communications be-
tween Lithuania and the West were
restored on Monday after being cut
off for two and a half days due to
what Soviet officials said was main-
However, Lithuanian Deputy
Prime Minister Kazimieras Motieka
said Soviet military airfields in the
republic "have an excessive number
of helicopters and perhaps also mili-
Lithuania, on the Soviet Union's
Western front line, contains eight
military bases and tens, if not hun-
dreds of thousands of troops, accord-
ing to emigre sources.
Soviet President Mikhail
Gorbachev has said he does not
intend to use force against the
Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze, speaking yesterday in
Windhoek, Nambia, reiterated that
position. "We are against the use of
force in any region, and particularly
against the use of force
domestically," he said.
The White House voiced concern
about Soviet troop movements on
Lithuania's borders, but
spokesperson Marlin Fitzwater said
Gorbachev had offered assurances the
Kremlin would not resort to force.
A Lithuanian activist said people
still were worried that an attack
might be staged on Soviet soldiers
or their families to create an excuse
for a military takeover.
Barber stressed, however, that the
weekend is not just for women.
"A lot of men feel very intimi-
dated by the concept," she said. "We
actually want to express that every-
one is included."
The event's organizers hope the
issues raised at the workshops and
lectures - such as how sexism has
affected women's psychology -
will continue to be discussed after
the weekend's events end.
. "We're just bringing this to the
forefront for the weekend, but these
are ongoing issues," Barber said.
"We've had years and years of
oppression. We're going to create a
new history," Barber added.

STUDY FOR ONE YEAR OR FOR ONE OR TWO TERMS IN
Several colleges of Oxford University have invited the Wash-
ington International Studies Council to recommend qualified
students to study for one year or for one or two terms. Lower
Junior status is required, and graduate study is available. Stu-
dents are directly enrolled in their colleges and receive transcripts
from their Oxford college: this is NOT a program conducted by a
U.S. College in Oxford. 3.2 minimum index in major required.
An alternative program which is sponsored by a U.S. Univer-
sity is available for students with minimum indexes of 2.7. Stu-
dents will have social and athletic rights in an Oxford college, and
the fees are substantially less.
Written evaluations are available from Oxford students who
have previously studied most subjects at most leading U.S. col-
leges. Telephone talks with students from your college (or in your
field) can usually be arranged by WISC.
WISC offers summer internships with Congress, with the
White House, with the media and with think tanks. Govern-
ment and Journalism courses are taught by senior-level gov-
ernment officials, who are also scholars, and by experienced
journalists. Similar opportunities in public policy internships
are offered (with academic credit) in London (Fall, Spring and
