Students
vote for
,Brown
and Bus
by Andrew Levy
Daily Campaign Issues Reporter
Though Bill Clinton may have
won the Michigan and Illinois pri-
maries handily, he 4had his hands
full with contenders Jerry Brown
and Paul Tsongas on campus in
yesterday's balloting.
A Daily exit poll of University
students voting at on- and off-cam-
pus polling sites showed Brown
capturing the largest portion of a
weak Democratic turnout, register-
ing 45 percent. Tsongas finished
second among students with 35
percent, and Clinton won 20
percent.
The campus Republican vote
was closer to the statewide average,
with approximately 74 percent of
GOPs casting their vote for
President Bush, and 23 percent se-
lecting political commentator Pat
Buchanan. Four percent of
Republican students voted for un-
committed delegates.
The turnout for both parties was
lackluster at best. Only three of 30
students interviewed after the polls
closed last night said they had
voted.
Regardless of whether or not
they voted, most students said they
were not surprised by tonight's re-
sults - on campus or statewide.
"It just shows that this is still a
very liberal campus," said LSA ju-
nior David Worth. "It shows that
people on campus are idealistic and
want change - and they think
Brown is going to bring about that

change."
Worth, like many students, said
he did not vote yesterday.
"The reason I didn'tvote is be-
cause it didn't matter who won
this," he said. "Clinton's got the
thing locked up."
Jenny Bregger, an LSA first-
year student, was not fazed at all by
the results.
"I would have voted for
Tsongas, but it doesn't surprise me
that he didn't have that much sup-
port," she said. "Maybe it was be-
cause he's Greek and doesn't fit the
traditional mold for a president."
She said she did not vote in the

Michigan primary because she lives
out-of-state.
But, though a Tsongas sup-
porter, his third-place finish was not
catastrophic for her.
"That's fine," she said. "It
doesn't bother me. I'll support the
Democratic candidate in November,
no matter who it is."
LSA junior Lisa Miller, on the
other hand, said she was upset by
the results.
"I really wanted Jerry Brown to
come in first," she said. "Out of ev-
erybody, he seemed to be the most
honest.

Donation drop leads
to cutbacks in BMC

V . 4:l Terrorist attack

by Mona Qureshi
Daily Staff Reporter

A drop in donations is forcing the
IJniversity's anti-racism education
center to cut programming and scale
back grants given to other
organizations.
The Ella Baker/Nelson Mandela
Center for Anti-Racist Education -
opened in 1988 with a grant from the
Office of Minority Affairs (OMA)
-started with the understanding the
center would be financially indepen-
dent after three years, said center
coordinator Tracye Matthews.

However, the organization is not
yet financially independent due to
the lack of public service and private
funding, Matthews said.
She said one problem lies in the
center's operational expenses, which
include coordinator salaries.
Matthews explained sponsors prefer
to see their funding directed toward
projects, like conferences, rather
than everyday costs.
"We're gonna pursue all our av-
enues, like other student groups for
help, but they don't have much

kills 10 people in
Israeli Embassy
n Buenos Aires
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - An explosion
destroyed the Israeli Embassy near downtown Buenos
Aires yesterday. At least 10 people were killed,
including some children, and more than 105 people
were injured.
About 30 people were trapped in the rubble, the
government news agency Telam quoted police sources
as saying. Up to 150 Israelis were reportedly in the
building at the time of the explosion.
President Carlos Menem called the blast a "terrorist
attack," but did not offer evidence or elaborate. He had
earlier suggested Nazis or right-wing military units
could have been responsible.
In Jerusalem, Israeli Foreign Minister David Levy
said the explosion was caused by a car bomb. He did
not indicate who he believed set the bomb, and there
was no immediate claim of responsibility.
The explosion reduced the central section of the
five-story embassy to a pile of cement, wooden beams
and debris. Rescue workers picked through the rubble
with their hands, prying up boards and tossing chunks

LSA Rep. Todd Ochoa and

"The resolution is not to kill the

"The resolution is intended to post-
