courts in California not to impose
any limits on contributions.
"His law firm took $178,000 of
taxpayers' money to beat a contri-
bution limit initiative in 1990. So I
don't think you can take much of
what he says seriously," he said.
"You ought to be ashamed of
yourself for bringing my wife into

all grass roots."
The Tsongas campaign will also
be providing rides to the polls for
voters who cannot get there other-

The Clinton group, led by LSA
senior Jonathan Grossman, has been
working its fingers to the bone in
anticipation of Tuesday's primary.

"The issue is that every time
I've run for office, the people who
run against me attack me person-
ally. But the fact is I win," he said.
"It's a crying shame that because
(Brown and Tsongas) read the
polls in the Chicago papers today
that I get this kind of criticism."
Tsongas was not involved in the
exchange.
The nation's economic crisis
was also a topic of discussion in the
debate, a significant portion of
which was dedicated to a discussion
of the plight of American cities.
"I live in a city, Lowell,

would to improve the decay of in-
ner cities. "And the manufacturing

like another city - Flint,

"But ultimately it comes back

Brown suggested creating 50
urban enterprise zones across the
country to stimulate urban devel-

Clinton called for a vigorous

including substituting community

new departmental

by Mona Qureshi
Daily Minority Issues Reporter
Korean students at the
University have been searching for
an extensive departmental program,
citing the importance of their
culture and political stances of the
two Koreas as reasons for its
development.
"Ann Arbor is made up of very
diverse ethnic groups. A small city
like this is a great place to grow up
and for the future to grow up," said
Tony Nam, president of the Korean
Students Association, at a panel dis-
cussion Saturday which considered
the possible reunification of the
southern Republic of Korea (ROK)
and the Democratic People's
Republic of Korea (DPRK).
He said it will cost a few million
dollars to endow a chair for a
Korean Studies department to pay
for teaching assistants and profes-
sors. "There are about 700 to 750
Koreans at the University. That's
quite a bit," Nam said.
History Prof. Rhoads Murphey,
director for the Center for South

Germany has been a strong state
since the time of Peter the Great.
But Koreans have not been so
fortunate. The odds against them
are greater," Murphey said.
He cited several Japanese inva-
sions of the Korean Peninsula as
obstacles which have hindered
Korean reunification.
Murphey also questioned the
Korean War's accomplishments, in

program
the Koreans themselves.
"I don't think Japan would ac-
tively prevent, nor do I think they
will promote development."
He added that the United States
may encourage reunification, but
won't play a primary role in the
process.
Political Science Prof. Do-
Young Chang from Western
Michigan University (WMU) said,

groups. A small city like this is a great place
to grow up and for the future to grow up.'

which the United States and the
United Nations attempted to
prevent the invasion of the ROK by
the communist DPRK from 1950 to
1954.
"I'm afraid the answer to that
question is essentially nothing.
In the wake of the big thaw, it
seems to me more than time for the

"More Koreans are inspired to
achieve unity as soon as possible."
Chang is also chair of the
International Relations and Asian
Politics Department at WMU.
He said Korean nationalism-
based on the similar cultures shared
by the ROK and DPRK - plays a
large role in the movement toward
