Russia says
it will join
'Partnership
for Peace'
LOS ANGELES TIMES
MOSCOW - Russia said yester-
day that it will join NATO's Partner-
ship for Peace by month's end and was
assured by Defense Secretary William
Perry of a major role in the post-Cold
War military cooperation program.
Gen. Pavel S. Grachev, Russia's
defense minister, made the announce-
ment after meetingwith his American
counterpart. Grachev said Russia will
sign up as soon as it prepares a de-
tailed proposal for how it wants to
collaborate with the 16-nation North
Atlantic Treaty Organization alliance.
American officials welcomed the
decision as a sign that Russia, despite
friction with NATO over the war in
Bosnia-Herzegovina and the recent
exposure of an alleged Russian mole
inside the CIA, remains committed to
working with the West.
"Secretary Perry repeated (in the
meeting) that Partnership for Peace is
something different countries will par-
ticipate in to different extents depend-
ing upon their resources, their funda-
mental importance," a senior Ameri-
can defense official told Reuters news
agency.
Perry told Grachev "he expected
in view of the size and importance of
! Russia that they would have a large
and important role in the Partnership
for Peace."
Partnership for Peace emerged last
year as an American formula to en-
able countries of the former Soviet
bloc to engage in joint exercises, train-
ing and defense planning with NATO
without gaining full membership.
Twelve nations have joined so far.
The formula is a compromise.
Former Soviet satellites - particu-
larly the Czech Republic, Hungary
and Poland - seek NATO member-
ship as a shield against future Russian
aggression. Russia objects to an east-
ward expansion by NATO, which it
views as a Cold War alliance that
should be weakened.
Russian officials made it clear
Yesterday they are joining Partner-
''ship for Peace not so much as step
toward embracing NATO as one to-
ward redefining Europe's security
arrangements under a broader um-
brella with a new identity.
One of Grachev's deputies, Gen.
Pavel Zolotarev, said Russia hoped by
joining the partnership to obtain "offi-
cial recognition" from NATO nations
of Moscow's "special responsibility"
to police neighboring countries of the
former Soviet Union. So far, no West-
ern leader has been willing to give
Moscow such carte blanche.

their participation in the annual event.
Asian Amer icaln to celebr.ate

DAILY STAFF REPORTER
Have you tried eating lunch at
West Quad lately? Or walking through
the Angell Hall Courtyard in the morn-
ings? Or how about riding the bus to
North Campus at 1 p.m.?
If so, you've seen a lot of high
schoolers and their parents walking
around.
Chances are they are on a Cam-
pus Day or Amaizin' Blue Prevue
tour. Admitted students are invited
to participate in one or both of these
tours.
About 95 percent of those who
participate in Campus Day enroll at
the University, said Jeff Schoenherr,
a counselor with the Office of Under-
graduate Admissions.
"This is the greatest way that we
can show admitted high school stu-
dents the campus, through bringing
them to campus and letting them ex-
perience Michigan first-hand,"
Schoenherr said.
Potential Wolverines are made to
feel like University students during
their time on campus, attending
classes, talking to students and eating
lunch in the residence halls.
The Office of Undergraduate Ad-
missions hires tour leaders, all stu-
dents, in the fall. The leaders are
trained to answer common questions,
show visitors around and offer expe-
rienced insight.
Anne Bottros, an LSA sophomore
who leads Campus Day tours once a
week, said, "When I was a senior, I
was deciding between six schools.
Campus Day showed me what Michi-
gan was all about. I wanted to do the
same things for other students."
Lisa Rooney, a senior from Wayne

'Campus Day showed
me what Michigan was
all about. I wanted to
do the same thing for
other students.'
Anne Bottros
LSA sophomore
Memorial High School who came to
Campus Day yesterday, said, "Our
tour guide was very enthusiastic and
very knowledgeable. I liked (the tour)
a lot."
Rooney said the event helped re-
inforce her decision to enroll in the
fall, and was impressed by the diver-
sity of students. She said, "It's kind of
scary - that's going to be me next
year."
Rochester High School senior
Brian Ebarvia said, "I enjoyed tour-
ing the different facilities around cam-
pus." He said that he had decided to
come to the University even before
his tour.
Amaizin' Blue Prevue, a program
similar to Campus Day, is by invita-
tion only, intended for in-state stu-
dents who are top scholars. "They're
all students who we hope will pay
their admission deposit and come here
in the fall," said Betty Bowerly, who
helps coordinate both tours.
The tours will last until April 15,
which gives admitted students at least
two months to visit campus.
Most campus tours are through
one of these two programs, although
there are also tours available through
the Student Activities Center and the
Alumni Center.

Setting their differences aside,
more than a dozen Asian American
student groups on campus will come
together in recognition of Asian Pa-
cific American Heritage Month, set
to begin this Sunday.
"The events planned for the month-
long celebration will recognize cul-
tural heritage and highlight the issues
affecting Asian Americans not only
on campus but in the community as
well," said Edgar Ho, president of the
United Asian American Organizations
(UAAO).
The theme of the month-long cel-
ebration, "Unity through Diversity,"
will attempt to reconcile the differ-
ences existing between the various
minority groups.
a nP-a'"
Joanne Shen, a minority peer ad-
viser at Alice Lloyd, said, "There are
more than 400 different Asian
ethnicities. There is a lot of diversity on
campus and that can be a weakness."

demic and Multicultural Affairs , in
conjunction with UAAO, will spon-
sor the more than 30 events planned

ticipants at the two-day MAASU con-
ference. Hayashi is the highest-ranking
Asian American official in the Clinton
administration.
During the MAASU Conference,
organizers will stage a march down
South University Avenue. "We hope to

American concerns to the attention of
the campus and the community," said
Varisa Boriboon, MASSU organizer.
The AAAS Conference is a six-day
meeting of educators from across the
country involved in developing Asian
American studies programs at universi-
ties across the country.
The Korean Students Association
(KSA) will kick off the month-long
