Whi'te
leaders
booked in
S.Africa
JOHANNESBURG, South
Africa (AP) - Police arrested 10
white extremists leaders yesterday
in raids certain to enrage those who
are already threatening violence
against government moves toward
power-sharing with Blacks. Among
those arrested on charges of public
violence was Eugene TerreBlanche,
head of the Afrikaner Resistance
Movement, who is considered South
Africa's most militant leader.
He and nine associates in the neo-
Nazi group were released on bail
and a court date was set for March 9.
The 10 men were arrested at their
homes in pre-dawn raids reminiscent
of sweeps in Black townships dur-
ing the state of emergency that
ended in 1990.
In recent weeks, police also have
arrested more than 10 other mem-
bers of groups on suspicion of
bombing schools and post offices to
protest President F. W. de Kierk's
reforms. Many observers think the
bombings are likely to'increase if de
Klerk pushes ahead with his promise
to end apartheid and share power
with the country's 30 million
Blacks.
Robert van Tonder, leader of an-
other group, said de Klerk was
"creating a climate of hate and bit-
terness" with the arrests.
. But de Klerk said, "the police are
applying the laws of the land with-
out political bias."

ADDRESS
Continued from page 1
He said Yeltsin's "early response"
to the U.S. initiatives "has been
very positive and I expect our talks
at Camp David to be fruitful."
Bush said the United States
would convert "a substantial por-
tion" of its strategic bombers to
primarily conventional use if
Yeltsin goes along with the ban on
land-based multiple warhead mis-
siles.
The $50 billion in defense re-
ductions would mean a 30 percent
cut in military spending by 1997,
measured from 1989 when Bush
took office.
Congressional Democrats are
sure to press for further reductions
but Bush said he would fight them.
"These cuts are deep and you must
know my resolve: This deep and no
deeper."
Bush put the defense changes
first in his speech but his plan to
fight the recession was the real fo-
cus.
While warning that he was pre-
pared to fight, Bush sometimes
spoke to the lawmakers in concilia-

tory terms.
"I believe you will help. One
reason is that you're patriots, and
you want the best for your country.
And I believe that iq your hearts
you want to put partisanship aside
and get the job done - because it's
the right thing to do."
Yet, in a tougher vein, Bush said,
"I believe that patience is a virtue
but I understand that politics is,
'I cannot take 'no' for
an answer. You must
cut the capital gains
tax on the people of
our country.'
- President Bush
for some, a game - and that some-
times the game is to stop all
progress and then decry the lack of
improvement.
"But let me tell you: far more
important than my political future
- and far more important than
yours - is the well being of our
country." He said that when politi-
cians put their party's fortunes be-
fore the public good, "they court
defeat not only for their country

but for themselves. And they will
certainly deserve it."
Acknowledging the obvious,
Bush said, "I know and you know
that my plan is unveiled in a politi-
cal season. I know and you know
that everything I propose will be
viewed by some in merely partisan
terms.
Bush said he would act on his
own to impose a 90-day freeze on
new government regulations
deemed to hinder growth. A White
House statement said the move
would not undermine health and
safety protections and would not
prevent compliance with legally
prescribed deadlines.
Once again, Bush called for a cut
in the tax rate on capital gains,
which has been stalled in Congress
from the start of Bush's adminis-
tration and derided by Democrats
as a tax break for the rich.
"This time, at this hour, I can-
not take 'no' for an answer. You
must cut the capital gains tax on
the people of our country."
Bush said the administration
would try to assist states overhaul
their welfare programs to prod re-
cipients to seek work, education or
job training.

The others are from east Jerusalem
or elsewhere in the Middle East.
Israel claimed it was an attempt
to slip the Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization into the process, and said
it would shun today's conference
meetings if the terms of participa-
tion were violated.
Secretary of State James Baker
faced the task of drawing the Pales-
tinians into the talks while abiding
by Israel's restrictions.
The Palestinians also faced a
dilemma. A boycott could jeopar-
dize their chances of sharing the
benefits of possible regional coop-

eration. They must reckon with
hard-liners, who think the Pales-
tinian leadership has already made
too many concessions to Israel.
An official on the Palestinian
team, speaking on condition of
anonymity, said contacts were con-
tinuing late yesterday and "we have
a lot of hope we will participate."
Palestinian leader Faisal Hus-
seini said, "There is no need for us to
participate in this meeting. We can
participate in the next meeting."
Arab delegations appealed to
Baker to change the formula ar-
ranged for the peace process in Oc-
tober. Egyptian Foreign Minister
Amr Moussa challenged "the prin-
ciple that any delegation has the

right to veto the composition of
other delegations."
Levy said Israel would not
budge. He accused the Palestinians
of trying to "bring in the PLO" and
said "maneuvers and sulks" were
futile. Israel refuses to negotiate
with the PLO, which it views as a
terrorist organization.
Baker announced that one of the
working committees would exam-
ine the plight of the refugees and in-
dicated Palestinians from any area
could participate in that committee.
Levy said, "Israel abides by what
was agreed, and will allow no devia-
tion from the agreement. This is like
a building - when you remove one
brick it all falls down."

MSA

"If anyone is going to defend
freedom of speech within the Uni-
versity, where one should find it,
the students probably are the onesl
who are going to have to take the re-
sponsibility," Dresch said.
All assembly members weres
given petitions last night and askedl
to get student signatures that show
support for House Bill 5059 and
support the resolution that demands
the interim policy be abandoned.
Some MSA representatives were
unsure of their stand on the policy.
"I don' t know exactly where I

stand on the code, but I think that
since the code is supposed to protect
minorities, different genders, dif-
ferent sexual preferences and vet-
eran status - I think these groups
should lead and be a vital part of the
process," LSA Rep. Felicia Tripp
said.
Most assembly members, how-
ever, seemed to distrust the interim
policy.
"Freedom of speech is a basic
civil right afforded by the First
Amendment," LSA Rep. Sejal
Mistry said. "How could anyone
not support it."
"I don't think the administra-
tion should have a speech code be-
cause I don't think they'll use it in a
way I will agree with," Rackham
Rep. Jeff Hinte said.

state's ballot. A Florida judge is ex-
pected to rule today on the same
question.
The ACLU contended that these
parameters made the search too nar-
row, and that LaRouche was indeed
a legitimate candidate for president.
Furthermore, ACLU Chief Counsel
Paul Denenfeld pointed out that
David Duke was selected to appear
on the Republican ballot even
-- though only two articles about him
appeared in the national media used
by the MBOE.
"Well, I'm very happy," Dean
said. "I feel very strongly that
LaRouche has articulated policies
that have been blacked out by the
press."

Dean, an ardent LaRouche sup-
porter, added that he "hopes we have
the resources and the media cover-
age to make progress."
The LaRouche campaign has
criticized President Bush for
"insisting on privatization of the
Soviet Union," and for failing to
'I feel very strongly
that LaRouche has
