a statement.
~3orders is expecting hundreds of
people to attend the event. "I'm
imagining it's going to be a very
large crowd," said Dallas Moore,
community relations coordinator for
Borders. -"We've ordered a lot of
books."
For security precautions, fans will
stand in line to wait to briefly speak to
Clinton individually or in small groups.
The public will not be allowed to take
photos.
"There's very high security surround-
ing the President and first lady," Moore
s'dt in a statement. "This is really dif-
ferent than anything we've done before
in the store."
The book tour comes in the midst
of controversy over Clinton's role
in the travel office firings and
Whitewater. Yesterday, Clinton said
her remarks regarding the travel
office could have been miscon-
strued.
-She said she did not order the
dismissal of seven travel office
eiployees although her conversa-
tions with presidential aides could
have "unintentionally" prompted
tlm.

Across nation, MLK remembered
through marches and speeches

The Associated Press
Preaching racial unity from Martin
Luther King Jr.'s pulpit in Atlanta, Presi-
dent Clinton said yesterday the slain
civil rights leader would find his dream
unfulfilled today. "He would say to us,
'You've still got a ways to go,"' the
President said.
"We have to continue to heal the
racial divisions that still tear at our
nation," Clinton said during the pre-
eminent ceremony for King commemo-
rations across the country.
The President waited three hours to
speak, visibly enjoying the lengthy,
lively memorial to the civil rights activ-
ist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate who
would have turned 67 yesterday. King
was killed April 4, 1968.
Observances elsewhere ranged from
somber to festive, some focused on
ordinarypeople, others on national lead-
ers.
Del Charles, organizer of a march in
Little Rock, Ark., said Shriners, Ma-
sons, classic cars and anyone who
wanted to couldjoin the parade because
King believed in inclusion.
"That's Central High School," he

said, nodding toward the band from the
school that was an integration battle-
ground.
At a church scarred by the federal
building bombing last April in Okla-
homa City, the disaster only reinforced
King's message.
"Those who perpetuated this crime
against those 19 beautiful children and
those wonderful adults did not know
his ideas," said Dr. Jihad Ahmad, a
local civil rights leader.
In Philadelphia, where retired Gen.
Colin Powell led a ceremonial ringing
ofthe Liberty Bell, some 70 high school
students spent a "day on" working in
various community service projects.
"Nothing would have frustrated Mar-
tin more than people supposedly honor-
ing him by sitting at home watching TV
or sleeping late," said former Sen. Har-
ris Wofford, who now runs the Corpo-
ration for National Service.
Several hundred people marched
through downtown Memphis, Tenn., to
theNational Civil Rights Museum,built
around the Lorraine Motel where King
was assassinated.
Others gathered at a Memphis park

named for King beside the Mississippi
River.
"I grew up in this neighborhood, but
I couldn't even come up in this park,"
said resident Aretha King. "Now my
grandchildren can play here."
In St. Louis, teacher Marabeth Gen-
try said this year's observance was
tinged with sadness.
"It seems like we are going backwards,
instead of forward," Gentry said. "But
they say sometimes you have to step back
before you can move forward."
Many at the observance in down-
town St. Louis said they believed the
O.J. Simpson trial and his acquittal on
murder charges had racially divided the
country.
"We need to love each other," said
Cecil McBriar of Springfield. "Look
each other in the eye. Help each other.
We're all part of the human race, black
or white or green or yellow."
A white supremacist who wanted to
"congratulate" New Hampshire for not
adopting a legal Martin Luther King Jr.
holiday accused the state yesterday of
allowing 200 angry protesters to shout
him down.

Against all odds, Hussein stays in power
AMMAN, Jordan - On Jan. 17, 1991, ferocious allied air
raids launched a U.S.-led offensive to drive Saddam Hussein
out of Kuwait and out of power.
Five years later, a defiant Hussein is still president of Iraq
and his bitterstandoffwith the world shows no sign of abating.
While the Iraqi leader has proved to be a stubborn survivor,
the 20 million Iraqi people are becoming poorer and hungrier. r
In the United States and elsewhere, analysts still debate
whetherthe U.S.-ledcoalition shouldhavetriedtooust Hussein
after driving his forces from Kuwait in a six-week war.
Even former President Bush said his administration may Hussein
have mishandled Iraq's surrender. If done differently, he said
in an interview to be aired today on PBS, Hussein might not still be in power.
"I miscalculated," Bush said. "I thought he'd be gone."
The war and the U.N. trade embargo imposed five days after Hussein invaded
Kuwait in 1990 have deprived Hussein of the oil revenues and the military muscle
that fueled his dreams of becoming the paramount leader of the Arab world.
Hussein has imposed austerity measures in an attempt to halt the econor@
decline that has beggared the once-prosperous nation.

Elders said she will not return to
Washington, but she will continue to
brave the political storm and stand up
for her beliefs, despite often fierce
opposition.
"If I had to have my lips clamped to

be there, then I don't want to be there,"
she said.
Like King, Elders entered college
when she was just 15 years old. She
graduated at 18 and became the only
black woman to graduate from the
University of Arkansas medical
school in 1960. Elders has returned to
her former position as a tenured pro-
fessor there.

trayed differently than Seale remem-

raised questions as to the Panthers'
leadership and tactics.
"We grew out of a college cam-

the subject, and Hewitt and Wainess
said that they knew very few students
who attended the MLK Day events.
Still, Walton was optimistic about
the symposium's turnout, and said that
change is never instituted by a majority.
"You're never going to get every-
body committed," he said.
Waltonnoted that during King's 1963
march on Washington, about 250,000
showed up while more than 400,000
blacks lived in Washington at the time.
SometimesWalton noted,asmall group
can be very influential.
"At moments of history, crisis mo-
ments, extraordinary individuals pop
up," Walton said.
Matlock said that the college years
are often times when students emerge
as leaders. They are also times when
students undergo the most change as
developing individuals, he said.
Hewitt said that being the only mi-
nority student at an all-white high school
influenced him upon entering the Uni-
versity.
But after a positive experience with
his white RA during his first year, he
said, "Well, there is hope. It's not ev-
erybody out to get you."
But coming together is not as easy as
changing a curriculum, several panel-
ists pointed out.
Differences in social practices were
also cited as blocks to black-white
friendships.
Matlock joked that Wainess might
mean well in inviting him to the bar for
a few drinks, but explained that blacks
generally don't socialize at bars.
"When we talk about interaction, on
whose turf?" Matlock asked. "Who's
expected to change?"

Prisoner exchange in
Bosnia falls through
BOCAC, Bosnia-Herzegovina - A
prisoner swap meant to demonstrate the
will for reconciliation among Bosnia's
hostile factions fizzled yesterday. Only
nine people were freed instead of the
hundreds expected.
The failure, four days before the Jan.
19 deadline for all prisoners of war to be
freed under the Dayton peace agree-
ment, displayed the lingering enmity
and mistrust that threatens the peace
pact.
As in the past, the main stumbling
block was government insistence that
Serbs account for thousands of missing
people.
"No agreement has been made about
the release with the Serb side" because
the Serbs refuse to say what happened
to 24,742 people whose names have
been handed to them, said Amor
Masovic, the Bosnian government offi-
cial charged with overseeing POW ex-
changes.
Masovic said 4,000 of those are
thought to be prisoners. The fate of
others is unknown. They include thou-

sands of people who disappeared in
1992 as the Serbs swept through north-
ern and eastern Bosnia, expelling, im-
prisoning and killing Muslims.
Ailing Greek
premier resigns
ATHENS, Greece-Premier Andreas
Papandreou resigned yesterday after
nearly two months in the hospital, at last
making way for his Socialist party to
elect anew premier and resolveGreece's
worsening leadership crisis.
Forweeks, doctors hadacknowledged
what Papandreou, 76, had not: Evenif
he does come off a life-support systeW
he will never recover well enough to
handle the duties of his office.
Opposition lawmakers had written to
Papandreou asking him to resign, but
Socialist ministers, afraid of being ac-
cused of taking advantage of a sick old
man, have been paralyzed on the issue.
Under the constitution, Papandreou
could be replaced only if he died or
resigned. Papandreou decided to re-
sign yesterday after meeting with hi
doctors.
