Vendors want
space on State
Street
Street vendors like Christopher
Lauckner, the photo card vendor
and a hot dog vendor are fighting
the State Street Association for the
right to vend on this corner of State
Street and North University Avenue.
The association is trying to drive
them out because their business
affects places such as Michigan
Book and Supply and Red Hawk
Grill.

NATIONAL REPORT

Another interest rate boost seen
WASHINGTON - With Alan Greenspan calling
economic growth "torrid," the Federal Reserve is widely
expected to boost interest rates this week for the seventh ._
time in a year. Such action would drive up borrowing
costs for millions of Americans.
Many analysts are predicting the central bank, which,
Greenspan chairs, will increase two key interest rates by
one-half percentage point, triggering a similar increase
in banks' prime lending rate. The prime is the benchmark
rate for many business and consumer loans.
'They are going to raise rates again. There is just not Greenspan
enough evidence yet that the economy is slowing down,"
said David Wyss, an economist at DRI-McGraw Hill, an economic consulting
firm in Lexington, Mass.

AMENDMENTS

members. It would evaluate the
amendments based on "frivolity, le-
gality, and consistency."
Proposals that pass the
committee's evaluation would then
be decided through a referendum of
the student body.
Another proposal would allow at-
torneys to fully participate in hearings.
"Our need is to hear the student
voice, not to hear the attorney's, which
may be quite different," Antieau said,
defending the current regulation. At-
torneys may attend hearings but are
prohibited from speaking.
"This system puts an incredible
amount of power in the hands of the
accuser," said Margaret Leary, direc-
tor of the Civil Liberties Board.
MSA supports allowing attorneys
or advisers represent students during

code hearings, Keenan said.
MSA also proposed an amendment
to establish an AdvisorCorps, which
would train students to advise other
students of their rights under the code.
Students can currently be charged
under the code for crimes committed
within a thirty-mile radius of campus.
Many of the amendments proposed
by MSA and the Civil Liberties Board
(through SACUA) concerned limit-
ing the code's jurisdiction to campus,
but allowing for charges to be brought
if the accused is convicted in criminal
court proceedings.
Ethan Kirschner, chair of the Stu-
dent Civil Liberties Watch, said "The
most important thing (in amending
the code) is not one amendment -
it's one category of amendments that
... make sure there's some sort of
check on what the judicial advisor
can do, and provide disclosure of the
facts about code cases."

Gingrich got post
after helping official
WASHINGTON -It started as a
constituent's request for government
help. But it didn't take long for Newt
Gingrich to turn a 1992 contact with a
Georgia college dean into a teaching
job.
Correspondence obtained by The
Associated Press sheds light on the
origins of Gingrich's nationally tele-
vised college course, which is now
the focus of a complaint before the
House Ethics Committee.
The letters show Gingrich re-
ceived the offer to teach at Kennesaw
State College less than three months
after he got the State Department to
agree to meet with the school's busi-
ness dean, who was pursuing fed-
eral contracts for his private busi-
ness.
Dean Timothy Mescon never got
the contracts he began seeking in fall
1992.
But by the following March,
Gingrich and Mescon had arranged to
co-teach the course, "Renewing
American Civilization," at Kennesaw.
Mescon is dean of the college's busi-
ness school, where Gingrich taught.
The course is carried on cable televi-
sion.
Members of Congress assist con-

stituents all the time. And with certain
restrictions, they're free to pursue a
wide variety of private interests while
in office.
Ethics watchdogs, however, ques-
tion Gingrich's judgment in doing
both simultaneously with a single in-
dividual.
Public opinion up
for Clinton,
Congress n poll
WASHINGTON -- In recent
weeks Americans have given Con-
gress and President Clinton another
look, and a new Washington Post-
ABC News poll suggests that the pub-
lic initially likes what it sees.
More than half of those surveyed
now approve ofthe jobClinton is doing
as president. Atpproval for Congress
- now Republican-controlled - has
doubled in three months, an unprec-
edented ihcrease in public support for
an institution that had fallen into public
disfavor in recent years.
Republicans in Congress ax
breaking legislative gridlock, a ma-
jority of the survey respondents said.
At the same time, Clinton today looks
more like the "New Style" Democratw
of his 1992 presidential campaign than
the liberal tax-and-spender portrayed
in last year's congressional cam-
paigns.

Bosnia fighting
continues; peace
plan rejected
SARAJEVO, Bosnia-
Herzegovina - Muslim battled Mus-
lim yesterday for control of strategic
ground in northwest Bosnia in com-
bat that jeopardized peace efforts.
Renegade Muslims who oppose
the Muslim-led Bosnian government
in Sarajevo said they were advancing
and taking strategic points. But the
United Nations countered that claim.
"We believe that the tide may be
turning in favor of the Bosnian army,"
said U.N. spokesman Lt. Col. Gary
Coward in Sarajevo.
If the Bosnian military was look-'
ing stronger, the country's political
unity seemed to be fraying. Five mem-
bers of the seven-member, multi-eth-
nic presidency charged yesterday that
army units were being brought under
the control of Muslim clergy and hard-
liners allied with President Alija
Izetbegovic.

The fighting in the northwest was.
a serious violation of a four-month
nationwide cease-fire.
Israel hands over
land to Jordan
BEER MENUCHA, Israel - Jor-
danian army officers unfurled flags
and soldiers performed an impromptu0
folk dance yesterday after Israel trans-
ferred a swath of desert borderland to
Jordan as part of a peace treaty.
Israeli officers, more low-key,
shook hands, hopped into their Jeeps
and sped away into the dusty valley.
The Israeli pullback, along a 106-
mile frontier in the Arava Valley,
completes the first phase of a peac
treaty between Israel and Jordan.
Jordanian Brig. Gen. MansourAbu@
Rashid said Israel was handing over
132 square miles yesterday and would
withdraw from about 20 more by Feb.
10, completing the terms of the treaty.
Israeli officers could not confirm the
figures.
