Gingrich suggests
sealing U.S. borders

GOP presses for U.N.
pullout from Bosnia

Los Angeles Times
Gingrich (R-Ga.), the incoming
speaker of the House, said yesterday
he does not support a national version
of California's Proposition 187, add-
ing that a better solution is to "seal
off' the border.
But, he added, he probably would
have voted for the initiative if he lived
in California "out of frustration," be-
cause the federal government has not
done its job of keeping illegal immi-
grants out.
He suggested the federal govern-
ment should increase the number of
border patrol officers to 10,000.
"Now, if you know it's costing
you $3 billion a year in California
alone with illegal aliens, the 10,000
border patrols is a very inexpensive
investment," Gingrich said on NBC's
"Meet the Press."
Striking a tune that will be music
to the ears of California Gov. Pete
Wilson and his counterparts in Florida,
Texas, New York and other states
with large numbers of illegal immi-
grants, Gingrich declared that until
the borders are secured, the federal
government should either excuse states
from paying for services for illegal im-
migrants or pick up the bill.
"I've told Gov. Wilson this, I
believe that the federal government
should either relieve mandates and
allow states to manage the problem
or the federal government should
pay for it," Gingrich said.
Some observers had suggested
that the new Republican-controlled
Congress should enact a national
version of Proposition 187, which
denies illegal immigrants education
and non-emergency health care, but

Gingrich's opposition could be a
substantial obstacle.
His comments came during an
extensive, wide-ranging interview
in which Gingrich said that although
his "Contract with America" calls
for a vote on term limits for federal
lawmakers, he does not believe there
is any chance it will pass this ses-
He also defended his welfare re-
form plan, which offers orphanages
as a solution for children of teen-
age mothers or whose parents can-
not or will not get jobs to support
During a speech last week, first
lady Hillary Rodham Clinton called
the idea "unbelievable and absurd."
Gingrich countered that she
should see the video of the old
Mickey Rooney classic "Boys
Town," which depicted a real-life
orphanage for neglected boys.
He mentioned two Chicago boys
who he believed would have been
better off in a home like that one.
One was the 5-year-old boy who
was dropped to his death from a
14th-floor window of apublic hous-
ing project earlier this fall by two
older children angered with him for
refusing to steal candy for them.
The other was Robert Sandifer,
an 11-year-old murder suspect, who
was shot in the head, allegedly in an
execution by two fellow adolescent
gang members.
"I don't understand liberals who
live in enclaves and safety who say,
'Oh, this would be a terrible thing.
Look at the Norman Rockwell fam-
ily that would break up.' The fact is
we are allowing a brutalization and
a degradation of children in this
country," he said.
"We say to a 13-year-old drug
addict who is pregnant, you now,
put your baby in a dumpster, that's
OK, but we're not going to give you a
boarding school," Gingrich said.
But Sen. Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) the
incoming Senate minority leader, took
issue with orphanages as a solution. He
said on CBS's "Face the Nation" that
sending children to orphanages is the
kin of Republican initiative the Demo-
cratic minority will fight.

WASHINGTON - The Clinton
administration clashed sharply with
top GOP lawmakers yesterday over
U.S. policy in Bosnia, as the Repub-
licans called for the withdrawal of
U.N. peacekeepers and the bombing
of the Serbian nationalists and key
Cabinet members countered that such
moves would mean a wider war.
In a day of cross-fire on television
talk shows yesterday, incoming Sen-
ate Majority Leader Bob Dole (R-
Kan.) and House Speaker Newt
Gingrich (R-Ga.) said the
administration's push foradiplomatic
solution in Bosnia-Herzegovina is
unworkable and urged a more aggres-
sive stance.
But Secretary of State Warren

William J. Perry said that pulling

"These were clear contributing
factors to his death," Risley said of
the appalling conditions that have re-
sulted from the Serbian blockade.
And despite repeated pleas for the
urgent evacuation from Banja Luka
of a seriously ill U.N. military ob-
server, Bosnian Serb officials have

Cancelling funding for the arts

funds for support and would affect
individual research of professors who
do research in the humanities.
The National Endowment for the
Humanities is the only foundation
that supports scholarship and profes-
sors apply for fellowships to the foun-
dation to fund their work. Elimina-
tion of the foundation would have a
dramatic affect on scholarship pro-
duced by faculty across the country.
In addition, ethical issues would
be raised should the arts become de-

Muslims, as the Republicans pro-
posed, would only lead to increased
killing in the Balkans.
"Essentially, it's a war strategy,*
Christopher said on the ABC pro-
gram "This Week With David
Brinkley" in an interview from Hun-
gary, where he is attending a confer-
ence on European security. The others
spoke on NBC's "Meet the Press" and
the CBS program "Face the Nation."
Perry noted that evacuating the
24,000U.N. peacekeeping forces now.
in Bosnia would require at least 10,
allied ground troops and would beIF
risky and "very difficult" operation.
He said U.S. troops "would partici-
pate" in any evacuation but insisted
that the size of any U.S. force is still to
be determined.
Bosnian Serb nationalists contin-
ued to refuse medical evacuation for
the unidentified Jordanian officer io
Banja Luka, whose congenital heart
disease has been seriously aggravated
by his having been used as a human
shield against air strikes by the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization. Risley
said that the ailing officer and three
others have been forced to lie on the
Banja Luka military airfield runway
at least twice when their captors feared
that NATO was about to strike.
Karadzic continued to taunt U.N.
officials here by holding more than
350 U.N. peacekeepers as pawns in a
high-stakes confrontation with the

In the last few years, 70 percent of
public higher education has been
funded by the states. This has put a
strain on their budgets and without
federal funding to make up the differ-

education that students are receiving.

cation system is the best in the world

But Scheetz said students expect
more."I think it's surprising, but to this
instant gratification generation they
seem to think, 'Whatever Iask for, I get.
If I ask for a good job, it'll be there
waiting on me,"' he said.

Scheetz said employers have had to
remind students that they need to climb
a few rungs of the career ladder before
they can command high salaries.
"It'sjust a rude awakening togradu-
ates," he said.
Scheetz said employers had other
unflatteringcommentsaboutnew gradu-
ates. They said students were unwilling
to spend time in apprenticeship posi-
tions; disliked starting at the bottom of
an organization and regularly lacked
interest, Scheetz reported.
Besides a little more humility, em-
ployers also want students who al-
ready have work-related experience,
as well as computer proficiency, pub-
lic speaking, writing, reasoning and
teamwork skills, Scheetz said.

The suspect, apart-time student in a

arrested at around 6p.m. Thursday at his
Pine Valley residence and placed in the
Washtenaw County Jail.
Vaughan of the University's De-
partment of Public Safety said
Chatman's account of the boy's death
was suspicious. A University autopsy
showed the death to be a homicide.
University forensic pathologist Dr.
Michael Caplan performed the autopsy
on Sept. 8.

impacts to the head-causing swelling

Chatman claimed he had been unable

the police in his defense.
"There's really no motive in some-

thing like this," Smiley said. "But
we've got a medical examiner that

unclear whether she was a witness
