both South Africa and potentially parts of
Southeast Asia might be areas where Peace
Corps volunteers have not been in the past but
might be in the future.
Q: What experience could the Peace Corps
provide to a college-aged volunteer?
A: First of all, you get a language. It may
be French or Spanish or Arabic or Russian or
Chinese, but, once you've learned one lan-
guage you know you can pick up another. I
still use my Spanish after 30 years.
The volunteer has worked and operated in
another cultural environment which increas-
ingly, whether in the private or public sector,
interests employers because we live in a one-
world economy, today.
The volunteer is not just traveling around
between college and his first job, but has
been, in essence, a project manager....
The Peace Corps challenges the volun-
teers. The Peace Corps is not Club Med....
We look for flexibility in our volunteers,
because not everything is predictable. The
volunteer has to look for ways to achieve

solutions and be goal-oriented. Besides the
fact it is a big adventure, it is a character and
skills-building two years.
Q: How many volunteers has the Univer-
sity provided to the Peace Corps?
A: It's the second in the country, behind
the University of California. The University
of Michigan has been consistently the No. 2
institution of higher education.
Right now, (the University has) 82 volun-
teers overseas. In the course of the 30 years, it
has sent almost 1,200 U-M graduates, and
they're in everything: education, health, busi-
ness and agriculture.
Q: How would you characterize the gen-
eral concern of Generation "X"?
A: I'm probably going against the grain,
but I think the so-called "X" generation has
taken a bad rap. We get more "good" applica-
tions than we can handle these days.
One of the reasons, that I want to try to
grow, and it's a modest growth, is that we
have to turn people down, some people who
would make great volunteers.... We're not
seeing any dropoff in this form of service;
we're seeing an increased interest.
The sense that we went from the "me"

decade to the "X" generation, I consider to be
a bunch of baloney. I think the marketers and
the magazines or advertising need to identify
Q: What do you think of President
Clinton's National Service Act?
A: I'm very supportive of it. I think the
fact that another young president is urging
people to serve in some way is very good....
To the extent that somebody says, "Well,
gee, why should I go overseas when there is so
much that needs to be done at home." Well,
fine. The fact is we say to our volunteers who
have gone overseas, "You're a Peace Corps
volunteer for two years, but you're a return
volunteer for the rest of your life." We en-
courage our workers to continue doing what
they know after they return.
Q: How does the Peace Corps differ from
other U.S. aid offered to developing countries?
A: The major point of difference is that the
Peace Corps' money goes into the volunteer.
... Most other foreign aid programs are direct-
dollar grant type programs, loan guarantee
programs or short-term exploits.
The Peace Corps involves living in a com-
munity. That community stay might be in a

mud hut in the middle of the jungle or a flat in
the middle of Warsaw, Poland....
The volunteer lives in the community,
becomes a member of the community and
works at the community level.
Q: How does the Peace Corps approach
the empowerment of women?
A: We believe the empowerment of women
... is allowing women to be participants in
society. The Peace Corps has two initiatives
that run through all five sectors. Those initia-
tives are youth in development and women in
In other words, as we do this programming
we shouldn't forget that the majority of the
population is under the age of 25 and also how
key women are. For example, in rural Africa
women make up more than 75 percent of the
people who are economic producers.
The Peace Corps is very involved in "girls'
education." This is support for girls being
able to get formal education as long as boys
can. What happens in many places is that the
girls drop out after one or two years, and they
end up not being real participants in the com-
munity or society.
Q: How does the Peace Corps further U.S.

relations with other countries?
A: I think in some ways we're one of te
best faces that America puts on in the rest oT
the world. We're part of overall American
foreign policy, on the other hand we are an
autonomous agency.
We are not run by the State Department. The
reason for that is we do grassroots work at the
local level. And so it isn't just if we are particu-
larly mad at this country on one day that all of a
sudden somebody can say, "OK, we're closing
Peace Corps; now, we're opening it."
We think that we help relationships betwe!P
other countries and the United States because
two of our three goals are that other countries
have alittle better understanding of what America
is. It isn't just CNN and MTV. ... We have
140,000 "mini-ambassadors" to these countries.
Even though we may have only 35 Peace
Corps volunteers in a particular country, it
may be the major U.S. presence in that coun-
try, and so people get to know them.... The
present president of Niger was educated t
Peace Corps volunteers.
Students interested in the Peace Corps
should contact campus coordinator Joseph
Dorsey at 747-2182.

U.S. citizenship, dominated
Christopher's meeting with Rabin, forc-
ing them to truncate other topics.
Rabin broke off talks with the Pal-
estine Liberation Organization over
Palestinian self-rule after the kidnap-
ping. But he said Israel will continue
its negotiations with Jordan, Syria
and Lebanon.
Talking to reporters after the meet-
ing, Christopher endorsed Israel's
claim that the PLO and its chairman,
Yasser Arafat, "bear a heavy respon-
sibility" for obtaining Waxman's re-

lease,'even though he is being held by
Hamas, a rival for the allegiance of
Palestinians in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip.
But Christopher also noted that only
Rabin can decide if the crime will be
allowed to wreck the peace process.
Christopher accused Hamas of
waging "a desperate rear guard ac-
tion" to stop Palestinian self-govern-
ment, which would bolster the PLO's
claim to represent the Palestinian
population. "Hamas is recognizing
the progress that's being made, re -
ognizing the transformation of tW
landscape, and is taking these actions
out of desperation," he said.

receive the vaccination and the other 15
percent will experience lessened ver-
sions of the following symptoms re-
lated to the flu: fever, chills, a cough,
muscle and joint or back soreness, and
achiness in the arms and legs.
The immunization may cause a
slight reaction or side-effects in certain
patients. According to the fact sheet,
people who are currently ill, pregnant,
allergic to eggs or chicken, or sensitive
to certain chemicals should not go in for
the shots. Johnson said to check with a
physician if there is any doubt.
Students can recieve the shot at
any time in the next month.
"If students receive the shot now,
they will be fully protected from flu
symptoms by the time the prime season
rolls around," Johnson said. "And be-
ing protected is important because res-
piratory flu, once contracted, can lead
to bronchitis and other relatedillnesses."
In extreme cases, the flu can cause
death, according to the HVVN fact

In Washingtona seniorofficial said
that the administration is seeking U.N.
Security Council approval of a resolu-
tion to bar threatening Iraqi troop move-
ments in the southern part of the coun-
try. The administration will station air
and possibly ground forces in the re-
gion indefinitely to enforce the prohibi-
tion, the official said.
The United States is prepared to
use force unilaterally to prevent or
punish any Iraqi moves that Wash-
ington considers hostile to its neigh-
bors or a threat to international peace,

go to Health Services during the end
of October. Shots there cost $8.
"When I was at Health Services
for something else, I also got the flu
shot," said LSA first-year student
Molly Bronitsky. "It was quick and
simple and inexpensive." 0
Johnson said HVVN offers shots
to the public at more than 80 clinics
covering eight counties. She said
HVVN also goes on site to private
businesses and establishments and
may be contracted by the Michigan
Athletic Department.
Shots at an HVVN site cost $10
and require the recipients to be over
age 18. HVVN plans to be in Aiu
Arbor at various locations Octob
25,27, and 28 and November 2,4, and
5 to administer vaccinations.
For those students who wish to
brave the elements and risk getting
the flu this time around, Johnson warns
that they may pay a heavy price.
"There is really nothing you can do
once you get the flu," she said. "Once
you get it, you are down for the count."
Anyone interested in flu immO
nizations may call Health Service's
Allergy/Immunization office at 764-
8034 or HVVN at 1-800-335-8FLU.

the official added.
And at the United Nations, U.S.
ambassador Madeleine K. Albright
excoriated the French defense minis-
ter for accusing the United States of
exaggerating the Iraqi threat for d
mestic political reasons, even as s
sought the approval of France and
other Security Council members for
the Iraq resolution.
The most dramatic news of the
day was the disclosure by officials in
Washington and in Saudi Arabia trav-
eling with Defense Secretary Will-
iam J. Perry that the withdrawal of the
Al Nida division of Iraq's elite R
publican Guard had come to a halt.
