SERVE
Center to
" aid in job
placement
by Randy Lebowitz
Students looking for internships,
jobs and long-term volunteer experi-
ences with non-profit social change
organizations now have a new re-
source on campus to help them ob-
tain information in this area.
SERVEwork - the latest devel-
opment of Project SERVE, a student
organization on campus that advo-
cates community service - is en-
tirely student-run.
Organizers said they expect
SERVEwork to become an impor-
tant center on campus.
"The center has been needed for
a long time. Lots of students do not
know what exists in non-profit ca-
reers," said Anita Bohn, director of
Project SERVE.
SERVEwork Co-coordinator
Craig Regester, an RC senior, rec-
ognized the need to reopen "The Al-
ternative Career Center," an organi-
zation with a similar purpose, which
dissolved in 1987 when its founders
graduated.
With the new name SERVEwork,
Regester and his Co-coordinator Su-
san Klein, a graduate student in the
School of Business, have expanded
the services of the center to include
a current library of information on
national non-profit organizations and
folders organized by issues - in-
cluding the environment, homeless-
ness, peace and justice, and hunger.
Regester stressed the "human el-
ement" of the center with its team of
Student Issue Coordinators who are
accessible for questions and referral.
Tom Lehker, a Career Planning
and Placement staff member, ex-
pressed his excitement about the
new center, hoping that they can
"better increase referrals."
While Career Planning and
Placement offers similar services,
Lehker said, "There are more oppor-
tunities in the non-profit sector with
SERVEwork. "
Emily Prokop, an LSA sopho-
more, said she was excited about the
center's opening. "I think it's really
hard to find outlets for volunteer
work because you have to research
on your own and are never exactly
sure who to call or where to go.
"SERVEwork will provide its re-
sources to students who already
have interests in community ser-
vice," said Julie Taras, an LSA
sophomore.
Today the SERVEwork represen-
tatives will be introducing the center
between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. in the
Project Serve office, 2211 Michigan
Union. Following the grand opening,
SERVEwork will begin regular of-
fice hours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday.

Supreme court
rules in favor

Pro-life
by Karen Talaski
Daily Gender Issues Reporter
The Supreme Court decision al-
lowing protestors to block access to
abortion clinics furthered the debate
about the protection of women's
rights.
The Court's 5-4 ruling, made
Wednesday, determined that federal
judges cannot stop anti-abortion
groups such as Operation Rescue
from blockading the entrances to
abortion clinics.
The decision was based on the
1871 "Ku Klux Klan Act," which
bans conspiracies aimed at violating
the constitutional rights of a
"protected class" of people, such as
African Americans.
The Court - ruling on a Virginia
case - said the 1871 law does not
apply to those who participate in
abortion blockades because women
seeking abortions are not part of a
protected class.
"(The ruling) is a very large
benefit to the Operation Rescue pro-
gram," said Pat Rose, a volunteer for
Right to Life of Wastenaw County.
"Pro-abortion activists tried to
say the law applied because it dis-
criminated against a group of peo-
ple. That's not true. They're trying
to stop the killing of babies," Rose
said.

activists
"Operation Rescue disobeys one
law in order to obey a higher law,'.
she added. "Their purpose is to save
lives, not harm women."
Eileen Spring from Planned Par-.
enthood of Mid-Michigan disagreed
with Rose. Spring said she felt the
Court's decision was a blow to the
Pro-Choice movement.
"The Court says women are not
entitled to federal protection from
anti-choice terrorism," Spring said.
"They are not protecting people who
work at the clinics or the women
who go to them."
Spring said 14 clinics in Michi
gan have been vandalized by stink
bombs in the last year by anti-abor-
tion groups, costing thousands of
dollars in damage.
"These types of activities are in-
creasing," Spring said, referring to
Planned Parenthood's problems with
local activists picketing the building
for the past two years.
The President has the power to
order federal protection of abortion
clinics without any court injunction.
In addition, federal law authorizes
state officials to seek federal lave-
enforcement if they cannot protect
women adequately.

tributed to this report.

Former U.N. commander
criticizes C's hasty action

by David Shepardson
Daily Government Reporter
Brushing aside attacks that he is
a "baby-eating monster," the former
U.N. Protection Forces Commander
in Sarajevo defended his neutrality
and discussed his role in the ongoing
civil war in Bosnia-Hercegovina.
Major-General Lewis
MacKenzie, the Canadian-born
Commander of Forces from March
to August of last year, addressed an
overflowing crowd of 150 at the
University's Institute for Social
Research yesterday.
MacKenzie strongly criticized
early European Community (EC)
recognition of Bosnia as an indepen-
dent state and said the coalition was
to blame for the opening of hostili-
ties in Sarajevo.
"Despite the urging of every mili-
tary leader and even the covert urg-
ing of the Bosnian president, the EC
decided to recognize them anyway,"
he said. "The day after recognition
of Bosnia - April 5th - the Serbs
began shelling Sarajevo."
In response to the audience's re-
peated questions about whether a
military solution was preferable or
even feasible, MacKenzie said any
military operation would do more
harm than good. He added that
world leaders had asked the United
Nations to "find a solution to the

problems in Sarajevo."
MacKenzie said his primary duty
in Sarajevo was to serve as the only
mediator between the Bosnians and
Serbs. He also arranged temporary
cease-fires of four to six hours in or-
der to allow the distribution of food
and medical supplies.
MacKenzie drew hisses and
sharp criticisms from the crowd after
'I didn't condemn the
Serbs. I was an
impartial observer.'
- Lewis MacKenzie
former U.N. commander
commenting that "both sides in the
conflict were to blame."
He related numerous stories,
based on what he called
"circumstantial evidence," of how
Bosnia shelled their own civilian
population in order to gain media
support. He said the practice was not
limited to Bosnia.
"Both sides have bombed their
own civilian population in order to
gain favorable coverage from
CNN," MacKenzie said.
One woman who attended the
speech questioned MacKenzie's

credibility in the matter, asking,
"What is your agenda? I believe you
are a fraud."
. Another audience member be-
rated MacKenzie for five minutes as
he tried to leave, criticizing him for
having been "duped by Serbian
propaganda."
Pointing his finger at the crowd
and raising his voice, MacKenzie
responded to the repeated criticism.
"I didn't condemn the Serbs. I was
an impartial United Nations observer
there to open the airport, deliver
humanitarian supplies - not to
make moral judgments."
MacKenzie is a former comman-
der of U.N. forces in the Gaza Strip,
Central America and Cyprus.
MacKenzie's speech, his 28th in
the last 29 days, is part of a nation-
wide tour. He left Ann Arbor to
board a plane for another speaking
engagement in Cleveland.
