Restaurant Review I By Nate Hurley & David Shepardson

Despite pledge,
Clinton diplomats
are political allies

WASHINGTON (AP) - The
Clinton administration pledged to
move beyond politics in choosing dip-
lomats, but so far has stuck to tradi-
tion - giving plum ambassadorships
to political supporters and big con-
tributors. Such nominees gave more
than $1 million to Democrats in the
past three elections.
Of the 77 people Clinton has nomi-
nated to head embassies and other
diplomatic missions, 31 nominees, or
40 percent, are from political ranks
outside the professional foreign ser-
vice, according to an Associated Press
review of Senate Foreign Relations
Committee records.
Five were $100,000-plus donors
to Democrats. One, California hotel
operator L. Larry Lawrence, failed to
win the endorsement of the Demo-
cratic-controlled Senate committee for
his nomination to Switzerland. The
full Senate still must consider
Lawrence's nomination.
While pledging a more diverse
government that "looks like

America," Clinton has named six
blacks, one Hispanic and nine women
to ambassadorships, little different
from his Republican predecessors.
George Bush appointed six blacks,
one Hispanic, one Asian-American
and 11 women as ambassadors his
first year in office; Ronald Reagan
named four blacks, three Hispanics
and five women his first year, accord-
ing to the State Department.
Critics say Clinton is missing an
opportunity to change the diplomatic
selection process as promised.
"The ambassadorial list still pretty
much looks like the elite profile of
past Republican administrations," said
Ellen Miller, executive director of the
Center for Responsive Politics, a
Washington group that studies politi-
cal donations.
There are 162 chiefs of mission,
most so far holdovers from the Bush
administration. Clinton's record could
change drastically if he selects mainly
career foreign service officers for the
rest of the jobs.

Filling a void in the South University business district, one-month-old Miami Subs offers students a restauraunt with a sunshine state atmosphere.
In new snowy locale, Miami Subs aims to please

Miami Subs, a little more than a
month old, is the latest entry in Ann
Arbor's always evolving fast-food
scene.
With its hot-pink neon decor, the
restaurant features moderately priced
cuisine.
Its 3 a.m. nightly closing time cofti-
bined with free refills on soft drinks
make it an attractive option for stu-
dents studying or interested in getting
a late night snack.
Our visit was met with prompt

service, as the meals are made to
order. The flame-broiled chicken
breast pita was marinated in a spicy
sauce and covered with cucumber
dressing, lettuce and tomatoes -
much like one wouldfind in a tradi-
tional Greek restaurant.
The gyros platter makes for a good
light meal, with pita bread, small
Greek salad, and gyro meat and sauce.
Although itexcels in its large menu
of freshly prepared food, the restaurant
does trail most other fast-food restau-

rants in value.
Expect to pay a buck or two more
for the whole meal than standard fast-
food fare, but the brightly-decorated
safari-style atmosphere is a pretty
good trade.
The restaurant also has a large
variety of vegetarian entrees.
The first location in Michigan,
Miami Subs has 149 U.S. outlets .
Restaurant Review, a new feature,
will appear occassionally.
