HOUSING
Continued from page 1
triples and so forth.
Accompanying this drop has been
an intense advertising campaign to
convince students to "Come Back".
Radio and newspaper advertisements
have urged students who are living
off campus to consider returning to
the dorms.
"We want you back," said Durst
repeating the campaign mantra.
The campaign is due in part to the
drop, said officials in the Housing
Division.
"We're very concerned about this

drop," said another Housing official,
who asked not to be named. "This
campaign will hopefully aid in pre-
venting further drops."
Durst agreed that further years of
100-person drops would cause the
department to reassess its budget but
still says this year's decrease is only "a
blip."
"If this continues, then we would
have to look at making changes," Durst
said.
He noted that the University enjoys
one of the highest occupancy rates in
the Big Ten.
Durst estimated the advertising
budget at $2,000 or $3,000 for the
campaign - funded through fees paid

by students living in the dorms.
The Housing Division is also urg-
ing students who are looking for off-
campus housing to come in for advice.
But students like Julie Munger, an
Engineering sophomore who has lived
in Alice Lloyd for two years, say they
have "had enough."
"We're moving out. We lived in
the dorms for two years. I want my
own room," she said.
Other changes have been made to
make the residence halls more appeal-
ing, including the addition of a 7-meal
aweekplan and renovations of Markley
and new elevators for South Quad.
Additional renovations are being
planned.

Species threaten Great Lakes

EAST LANSING (AP) - Exotic
creatures introduced into the Great
Lakes, like the zebra mussel and the sea
lamprey, pose a bigger threat than toxic
pollution, a Michigan official said yes-
terday.
"I'm not saying don't spend money
on the toxics," said G. Tracy Mehan,
director of the Michigan Office of the
Great Lakes. "I'm arguing we need to
look at some of these ecological
threats" which threaten the area's fish-
ing and recreational opportunities.
Mehan said exotic species prob-

lems "are really bearing down hard on
us right now, very quickly." He said
there is "imminent danger of the fish-
ery going into decline now."
"We're seeing a real resurgence in
the sea lamprey while we're cutting
back treatment," Mehan said.
He commented during the second
day of the 4th annual zebra mussel
conference at Michigan State Univer-
sity. On Monday, he told the confer-
ence that efforts to control toxic pollu-
tion in the Great Lakes has dwarfed the
fight against exotic species introduced

through the St. Lawrence waterway
and the discharge of ballast water from
oceangoing freighters.
Mehan said about 130 species not
native to the Great Lakes have been
introduced into the water system over
the past several years. And, he said,
"the valve is not shut off."
"The bottom line is nobody is ip
noring chemical threats. (But) we need
to reaffirm and elevate these biological
threats," he said.
"Sometimes you have to wait until
things reach adisasterstage," he added.

SWARTHMORE

the president of the college ... sees
something is wrong here, either the
penalty, the process or the procedure."
Yearwood denied harassing his
classmate and said she misinterpreted
his actions. He said that he shaved his
head last semester, revealing several
scars, and that he "looks mean" when
he's not smiling.
His lawyer, Harvey Silverglate,
said the case resulted from an "outra-
geous infestation of political correct-
ness."
Clinansmith was away during the
school's winter break and could not
be reached for comment.
After Clinansmith complained

about Yearwood to the college, police
and the Delaware County District
Attorney's Office, Yearwood agreed
to stay at least 40 feet away from her,
But a disciplinary committee decided
to suspend Yearwood for the spring
semester for violating that agreement.
Yearwood and Clinansmith both
apppealed to the president of
Swarthmore, resulting in Friday's de-
cision.
"I do not think I have a problem,"
Yearwood said.
"They feel that I probably inadvert-
ently, subconsciously, release intimi-
dating vibes and that I need counseling
to better understand what it is in my
behavior that makes people feel that
way and how to be perceived as less
intimidating."

RUSSIA

enemies, whose supporters had rioted
in the streets.
"Despite the diversity of parties in
parliament, there is a fundamental ba-
sis for constructive work together,"
Yeltsin said yesterday.
He urged parliament to pass laws
easing the transition to a market
economy.
"During the electoral campaign, a
lot of fresh and original ideas were
heard, which could provide a second
wind to the economic reforms," he
said.
Since the stunning success of ex-
treme nationalists and Communists in
December's parliamentary elections,

doubts have emerged about Yeltsin's
commitment to his painful "shock
therapy" reforms.:
Yeltsin has ordered a Cabinet re-
shuffling to trim the bureaucracy, and
some reformers could lose their jobs.
Yeltsin has pledged that Yegor Gaidar,
architect of his free-market transition,
will remain.
Addressing the lower house, or
Duma, Prime Minister Viktor
Chernomyrdin said yesterday that the
government "must avoid unjustified
lurches and shock-type decisions."
"Society's patience is largely ex-
hausted" with painful economic up-
heaval, the prime minister said. "We
are at a new stage in the reforms. The
government's efforts will be concen-
trated on stabilizing the economy and

forming favorable conditions for
Russia's manufacturers."
Clinton is likely to propose ways
the West could help develop a social
safety net to help cushion Russians
from the pain the reforms are causing.
Parliament's two chambers opened
separately, in temporary buildings in
different parts of Moscow. The law-
makers in both halls rose for Russia's
new national anthem, "Glory to Rus-
sia" from Mikhail Glinka's pre-revolu-
tionary opera, "A Life for the Czar."
Yeltsin addressed the 178-member
Federation Council, which consists of
two deputies from each of Russia's
regions and republics, in a cramped
hall of a former journalists' building.
Chernomyrdin spoke to the 450-
member Duma, elected from geo-

graphic districts and from party lists of
candidates.
The Duma convened in a shod
skyscraper next to the old parliamenT
building, the White House. The sky-
scraper, which once housed the Soviet
trading bloc Comecon, suffered heavy
damage in the October violence.
Zhirinovsky captured the most at-
tention during the chaotic Duma ses-
sion, by criticizing Clinton for refusing
to meet with him. The outspoken na-
tionalist also said Russia doesn't nea
Western economic aid.
The Duma is expected to be deeply
divided since no party holds a majority.
Zhirinovsky controls 64 seats, the sec-
ond largest faction after the 94 seats
held by Gaidar's Russia's Choice coa-
lition.

NATO
Continued from page 1
"We still need the approval for a
first strike" from U.N. Secretary-Gen-
eral Boutros Boutros-Ghali, he said.
Boutros-Ghali said that if U.N. mili-
tary, humanitarian and political offi-
cials on the scene ask for air strikes, he
will immediately ask NATO to carry
them out.
He said NATO's statement demon-
strated "a political will to do some-
thing."
The NATO leaders raised the pros-
pect of bombing raids to evacuate the
Canadians from Srebrenica in eastern
Bosnia and force open the airport at
Tuzla, a key conduit for aid to the
north.
"We've asked the Serbs several
times to open Tuzla. They refused,"
said French Foreign Minister Alain
Juppe. "Now we've decided to do it
anyway."
The allies also reaffirmed their
readiness to conduct air strikes "to pre-
vent the strangulation of Sarajevo, the
safe areas and other threatened areas of

Bosnia-Herzegovina."
The allies seemed to move closer t
military intervention in th conflictra
ing on their doorstep.
More than 200,000 people have
died since fighting broke out when
Bosnian Serbs rebelled against inde-
pendence from Yugoslavia nearly 21
months ago.
The Bosnian crisis dominated the
final day of the NATO summit.
The leaders declared a readiness to
let their former foes in Eastern Euro*
join the elite fraternity one day.
The allies did not draw up a time-
table or a list of candidates formember-
ship.
In their final statement, they en-
dorsed the U.S. proposal for a"Partner-
ship for Peace," which invites East
Europeans to take part in military exer-
cises and other limited activities.
"The offer is there," NATO Secr-
tary-General Manfred Woerner saic
"The door is open."
From Brussels, Clinton flew to the
Czech capital Prague to try to sell lead-
ers of that new democracy, as well as
Poland and Hungary, on the alliance's
plan for limited partnerships.

GMAT

use the test to determine the language
skills of students. Lieberthal added
that some international students re-
ceive help with their applications, but
the GMAT essays will be a more
accurate representation of the appli-
cants' abilities.
"We are assured that we are get-
ting a bona fide writing sample," she
said.
She added that the University will
probably use the essays as a diagnos-
tic tool for placing both international
and domestic students in writing tuto-
rials.
"Exclusion is not the goal," she
said.

Although the University is not
currently planning to reject students
based on the essays, many studen4
fear other business schools may use
them in this way.
Yutaka Torigoe, a native of Japan
and graduate student in the school of
business administration, took the
GMAT exam. He said the essay re-
quirement might have jeopardized his
admission to the University due to the
language barrier.
But many students agreed th
communication skills are a necessi
in the business community.
Bradley Arnold, a graduate stu-
dent in the school of business admin-
istration, said, "The chance to evalu-
ate someone on their writing ability I
think is relevant ... That is life -
extra time, extra pressure."
