month theme stirs debate
by Mona Qureshi
Daily Staff Reporter
Mixed emotions surround the
theme of the University's Latino-
Hispanic Heritage month celebra-
tion, titled "500 Years After: The
Emergence of a Cultural Mosaic."
In an effort to recognize the im-
portance of events during 1492 -
particularly Spain's coming to
America - Hispanics on campus
and around the United States are
anxious as to where they should
stand on the issue.
"We're split on how to celebrate
Spain. Some Hispanics want to glo-
rify Spain, but some people want to
recognize all the bad things the
Spanish did - like genocide of na-
tives," celebration organizer and
third-year Inteflex student Gina
Carlos 'Acevedo, a member of the
advisory council for the Office of
Minority Affairs (OMA), said the
theme reflects a sad time for many
Hispanics, but the "cultural mosaic"
the theme mentions is a reason to
"We tend to see groups' segrega-
tion. It's like you have different dots
of many different colors - blue,
red, green and so on. When you have
one set of colors, you're no longer a
mosaic. The theme follows in recog-

BONN, Germany (AP) -
Germany cut key interest rates for
the first time in five years yesterday,
an action the United States and
European Community nations had
urged for months to help spur a
world economic recovery.
Stocks shot up in New York and
other financial markets.
The cuts by the Bundesbank,
Germany's central bank, could ease
pressures on the U.S. economy and
improve the prospects for French
approval of a treaty for European
political and monetary union in a
referendum this Sunday. But the gap
between German rates and those in
other major industrial nations
Germany's high rates have at-
tracted investments and drawn
money away from other currencies,
helping to drive the dollar to an all-
time low against the mark in recent
The cut was part of a European
Community agreement Sunday to
devalue the weakening Italian lira
against the mark and other European
currencies in exchange for a reduc-
tion in German interest rates.
Yesterday the Bundesbank lowered
its Lombard rate from 9.75 percent
to 9.50 percent and cut the discount
rate from 8.75 percent to 8.25
The pivotal Lombard is the rate
at which banks borrow emergency
funds from the Bundesbank, and acts
as the ceiling on money market
rates. The discount rate is used for
the cheapest standard bank-to-bank
There was an immediate reaction
on Wall Street, where the Dow Jones
average of 30 industrials shot up 35
points in the first half hour of
Prices also rallied in London, but
lost ground when the cuts were
smaller than investors had hoped.
The rate-trimming was something
of a victory for the United States and
for Bonn's European partners.
The powerful German Labor
Federation said the lowered rates are
"a step in the right direction but too
small. The whole world awaits
Cheney touts Bush's military record,
promises economic recovery in Detroit
DETROIT (AP) - Secretary of
Defense Dick Cheney cheered
President Bush's overseas victories
yesterday while spinning sugar-plum
visions of jobs in this economically
Cheney, speaking to the Detroit
Economic Club, began his Michigan
trip at the former Hudson's depart-
ment store downtown. Detroit and
state officials have touted the vacant
site as a prime spot for a new
Pentagon finance and accounting
Abandoned in 1983 because of
dying business, the 25-story building
is just one victim of Detroit's hard
times. Cheney's visit sparked hope
that Detroit could win one of as
many as five planned facilities as the
Pentagon consolidates its finance
and accounting operations.
"The feeling is that Detroit has a
good chance," said Bob Berg, a
spokesperson forfMayor Coleman
Young. "Just the fact that the secre-
tary took the time out of his schedule
to look at the building, that says a
Young, Gov. John Engler and
Detroit-area financiers Max Fisher,
Peter Stroh and Heinz Prechter, all
of whom have close ties to the Bush
administration, accompanied Cheney
on his tour of the building.
More than 125 cities have sub-
mitted 200 bids for the regional of-
fice centers, said defense spokesper-
son Pete Williams. Each center will
produce between 4,000 and 7,000
Three other Michigan areas have
expressed interest in the offices:
Muskegon, Sterling Heights, and
But Cheney seemed to favor
Detroit yesterday, saying, "As
Detroit goes, so goes Michigan."
Metropolitan Detroit, in the
southeastern corner of the state, con-
tains over half of Michigan's resi-
"If you were to put 4,000 to
7,000 additional jobs there ... you're
revitalizing the whole state's econ-
omy," Berg siad.
Cheney made the extra stop at the
request of Engler, the head of Bush's
"I think it shows how serious
Detroit is in the running," Engler
spokesperson John Truscott said of
Cheney's visit to the Hudson's
