OSCARS

film staff would like Leonardo
DiCaprio to win for "What's Eating
Gilbert Grape?" we are all faced with
the truth that Ralph Fiennes probably
has this one in the bag. Although
Tommy Lee might get it. Hey, he was
nominated for "JFK," maybe the
'{Academy feels guilty.
Best Supporting Actress. Holly
Hunter for "The Firm," Anna Paquin
for "The Piano," Rosie Perez for
-"Fearless," Winona Ryder for "The
.Age of Innocence" and Emma Th-
_ompson for "In the Name of the Fa-
ther."
Oh, wouldn't it be nice if they all
could win? And isn't it wonderful
that the only big nomination "The
Firm" got was for something it can't
win?

Finally, the other big one. Best
Director. Jim Sheridan for "In the
Name of the Father," Jane Campion
for "The Piano," James Ivory for "The
Remains of the Day," Steven
Spielberg for "Schindler's List" and
Robert Altman for "Short Cuts."
Although Spielberg seems to have
this one without question, this is the
academy we're talking about here. As
stuffy as they are, "The Remains of
the Day" could actually win. Yeah,
right. Biggest competition for
Spielberg is Jane Campion. And as
for Altman, well, better luck next
year.
'So there it is in black and white.
The big night is March 21. I'm sure
we'll all be glued to our seats with
anticipation and laughing hysterically
at Whoopi Goldberg's witty mono-
logue..

Clinton health plan to cost more than thought e

Congressional Budget Office
says plan will increase deficit
by $74 million
THE WASHINGTON POST
WASHINGTON - President Clinton has put
forward a credible plan for restructuring the nation's
health system, but implementing it in the next few
years will cost more than he thought and could
overwhelm the frail institutions of government.
That was the carefully stated but unambiguous
judgment delivered yesterday by the Congressional
Budget Office, a nonpartisan policy analysis orga-
nization that enjoys unusual respect in Washing-
ton.
The CBO credited the administration with com-
ing up with a framework that appears to reconcile

what many had considered irreconcilable: extend-
ing health care to all Americans while at the same
time slowing the growth of medical costs, which
threaten to consume 20 percent of the nation's
economic output by the end of the decade.
But the budget office implied what many of the
country's leading business organizations said last
week when, one after another, they declared that
the Clinton plan was simply too much too fast.
The headline-grabbing news in the CBO report
was that the Clinton plan would not reduce the
budget deficit by $59 billion over the next five
years, as the administration had estimated, but
increase it by $74 billion. That $133 billion differ-
ence of opinion may have more political than
economic significance: Both predict that the Clinton
plan would begin saving money for the govern-

ment, business and consumers by the year 2000.
Still, there were nuggets of good news for the
administration in the CBO analysis.
The Clinton plan, it concluded, would not sig-
nificantly slow the economy or result in the loss of
jobs, as many critics have charged.
What few minimum wage jobs would be lost at
restaurants and small manufacturing firms, it con4
eluded, would likely be replaced in an expanded
health care sector. It predicted that the job market
would improve because some working mothers
and older workers would drop out of the work
force, knowing that their medical costs would be
covered.
The proposed National Health Board, it warned,
would need "a large, skilled professional staff" to
perform "many difficult tasks."

REACTION

didn't surprise many.
"I think it was the best thing for
them to do," said Brett Severance, an
Art senior.
While many students were happy
to see the players back on the court,
some wondered if the sentence would
send a wrong message to the people
outside the high-profile arena.
"I want to see them winning games;
I'm happy they're going to be play-

ing" said LSA first-year student Amy
Klein. "But what they did is also a
crime, and I'm not sure if it's (the
sentence) sending the wrong mes-
sage."
The fairness of the sentence was
important to many students around
campus. Students felt the players
should be judged the same as other
students would be.
"I think that they should be treated
like anyone else, just because they're
well known, they shouldn't be treated
differently," said Adam Perry, a third-
year Law student.

JEOPARDY

Chacko's friend and hallmate, said
jokingly, "I'm glad, that my friend
Benoy was selected for this honor. He
is the smartest person I've ever met."
Presently, Chacko is not prepar-
ing for the tournament and expresses
little concern about losing.
"I'm not scared of bombing, but in
the back of my mind I keep hoping

impose a settlement that would force
Bosnia to give up too much territory
to remain viable - including control
of Sarajevo.
Their skepticism toward the latest
flurry of activity was underscored by
the news, which shocked even State
Department officials, that Secretary
of State Warren Christopher had dis-
patched Peter Tarnoff, the
undersecretary for political affairs, to
Europe to take the lead in renewed
peace negotiations.
Tarnoff was an architect of the
policy, which he enunciated last year,

bought and sold on the private market
or through autonomous universities.
"It comes down to public exami-
nation and scrutiny," Pollack said.
"From a legal point of view, there's
nothing the Legislature can do."
Koivisto said he thinks the state
Legislature should have control over
such problems at state universities.
"They're tax-supported institu-
tions," he said. "(Students) are told
they have to purchase the books or
flunk the class."
Rosser defended the bookstores,
saying students have other high ex-
penditures to deal with at universi-
ties.
"I think everything's really high,"
he said. "I think tuition's outrageously
high."
University Associate Vice Presi-
dent for Government Relations Keith
Molin said the University has not yet
issued an official position on the pro-
posed hearings.
"I think there is always a need to
make things more efficient and eco-
nomical," he said.
After paying $250 for this-term's
textbooks, Coletti said she sees
Koivisto's plan for hearings on text-
book prices as a good idea.

that the.other contestants are not
really awesome. Maybe I should find
some way to prepare. Maybe I'll buy
an almanac or something," Chacko
said.
Each "Jeopardy!" contestant has
his own goal for himself during the
tournament in which he participates.
Chacko said, "I want to win and
do as well as I can. I just hope I can*
represent the University of Michi-
gan without making a fool of my-
self."
that the United States should not be-
come involved in the war in Bosnia
because it is a European "regional
problem" and did not affect U.S. na
tional interests. A White House offO
cial acknowledged that the Uniter
States is prepared to put added pres-
sure on the Muslim-led government
to accept a peace settlement.
On the military front, officials said
Washington is likely to propose spe-
cific steps to permit NATO air strikes
as a means of pressuring Serb forces
to halt attacks on Sarajevo.
The Western alliance was pr,
voked into action by a series of arti-
lery barrages that followed a mortar
attack on a Sarajevo marketplace.

"I think a lot of students would
have a lot to say about the textbooks
because it affects so many of us," she
said.
Like Coletti, Koivisto said high
textbook prices was also a problenl
when he was in college.
"Nothing has changed for many
decades on this," he said. "Every busi-
ness is entitled to a fair profit, but
there is such thing as gouging."
Since this problem has existed for
so long, universities need to think of
new ideas to deal with the high prices,
Koivisto said.
He said he sees the possibility of
starting a textbook-rental program We
save students money.
"It's time for people to get innova-
tive and creative on this," he said.
Rosser criticized the University
policy on textbooks.
"I know of some schools that when
a textbook is adopted, it is adopted for
a three-year period minimum," he
said, "where at U-M textbooks are
adopted for five minutes."
He said if the University adopte
textbooks for a longer period of time,
more students would receive 50 per-
cent back on their used books.
But Molin defended the practice
of frequently changing textbooks.
"Information and knowledge does
not remain static for three years," he
said.
