MOSCOW (AP)-President Boris
Yeltsin agreed yesterday to church-
mediated talks with hard-line lawmak-
ers in an effort to break the siege of
parliament and end Russia's 10-day-
old political crisis.
Yeltsin's announcement came after
ameeting at the Kremlin with Patriarch
Alexy H, head of the Russian Orthodox
Church. The patriarch's offer to medi-
ate the power struggle underscored the
church's growing influence since the
decline of Communism.
Yeltsin's rebellious vice president,
Alexander Rutskoi, leader of 100 law-
makers holded up in parliament, sent
the patriarch a message saying he was
"ready to meet Alexy HI and any other
representative of authorities," accord-
ing to the iTAR-Tass news agency.
Other hard-line lawmakers have
said they were willing to negotiate if
the church acted as mediator.
Thousands of riot troops continued
to ring the builing, known as the White
House. Power, water and phones have
been cut off to the building, and food
supplies were running low.
Yeltsin said he disbanded the So-
viet-era parliament to break 18 months
of political deadlock in which the law-
makers slowed the president's free-mar-
ket reforms and rolled back his powers.
Wednesday, Yeltsin gave lawmak-
ers untilnext Monday to surrender their
weapons and leave the White House or
face "serious consequences." Deputy
Security Minister Sergei Stepashin told
the Trud newspaper that militants in
parliament had up to 800 firearms.
Astatement by Yeltsin and the patri-
arch said Alexy said, "The need was
stressed to take measures making it
possible to alleviate the situation with-
out allowing violence."

In response to the concerns articu-
lated by the Women of Color Task
Force, Dirks said signs stating in part,
"What's wrong with this poster?" had
been placed over the picture around
campus. He added that CSST plans on
addressing the controversy during the
conference, both in his opening re-
marks and during its discussions.
Some speakers scheduled to appear
at the conference said they were not
sure how the picture related to the
conference's theme or intent.
"It kind of surprised me," said Robin
Kelley, associate professor of history
and Afro-American studies. "They

context for the image."
Executive Vice President for Uni-
versity Relations Walter Harrison said
the poster's designers are protected by
the freedom of expression, but said he
finds the image personally offensive.
"I can't see what the picture has to -

backwards," she said. "(Yet) so many
