campus and surrounding areas.
The task force included the AAPD,
Washtenaw County Sheriff's Department
officials and the Department of Public
Safety.
Hines' order allows Callan to undergo
a 45-day period of evaluation by mental
health officials from the State Center for
Forensic Psychiatry. The findings of the
center will be disclosed on June 11, when
Callan returns to court.

caused relatively little damage, while
others caused extensive property damage
and endangered the lives of occupants.
DPS detectives are currently investi-
gating a possible link between Callan and
a fire that took place in January on the
second level of Mason Hall that caused
more than $100,000 in damage.
Following Callan's arrest, the AAPD
Special Investigations Unit seized jour-
nals, shoes, disposable lighters and arti-
cles of clothing that the police and pros-
ecutors hope will tie Callan to the case.
Detective Sgt. Roy Mays of the
Washtenaw County Sheriff's Department
said the fires that destroyed a car and a
mobile home at Scio Farms Estates three
weeks ago were similar to at least six
other fires that have been reported.
"The damage has been fairly extensive
to various objects - cars, trash dump-
sters," Mays said. "There have been
enough of these fires to show that there's
a serious problem. It has cost Scio
Township over a million dollars."

istrators grant guaranteed funding
for Latino/a organizations, similar
to the $35,000 that the Black
Student Union is guaranteed every
year.
The three-hour meeting closed
with tension between the two sides,
when LUCha members demanded
the administrators sign a statement
of intent, which would require the
administrators to issue monthly
progress reports on their efforts to
"end the oppression of Latino/a stu-
dents at the University."
After Bollinger refused to sign the
statement, calling it unacceptable,
LUCha members decided to suspend
talks.
"You have a perfect opportunity;
you have people assembled here on a
Thursday night to work with you,"
Bollinger said. "They have offered
you sympathy and want to help you,
and you turn around and demand they
sign a document, holding them
hostage. This is counterproductive:'

LSA sophomore Diana Derige said
the administrators' refusal to sign the
statement showed a lack of commit-
ment to Latino/a issues.
"The meeting for LUCha was a
success, but for the administration it
was a setback by not signing the con-
tract," Derige said. "They set the
impression that they were paying
LUCha lip service."
LUCha member Wilson Valentina
said if LUCha's 16 demands are not
met, the movement would continue.
"We will have LUCha I, II, III,
IV," Valentina said making reference
to the three Black Action
Movements that formed at the
University in the past. "We will con-
tinue. We are willing to continue
actions as we did last Thursday. We
are united; we have the power to do
that."
Bollinger said he was impressed
by the arguments presented.
"I thought the students were quite
impressive," Bollinger said. "I'm
sorry they've reached the conclusion
they didn't want to talk further."

Stamp price may climb to 34 cents
WASH INGTON - The days of the 32-cent stamp are numbered - soon, it
appears, to be replaced by a 34-cent stamp.
Postal sources say senior postal management has agreed that the U.S. Postal
Service must seek an -increase in the price of the first-class stamp and that
Postmaster General Marvin Runyon has endorsed the idea.
Until recently, Runyon has sought to hold the price of a stamp at 32 cents un*
the year 2000. But, facing a projected $1.3 billion deficit in 1998, and after a brief-
ing by top postal managers last week, the postmaster general changed his view.
Many postal officials now expect that the agency will initiate proceedings to
raise the price of a first-class letter to 34 cents.
The increase would not become effective until mid-1998.
Even with a 34-cent stamp, Runyon will be able to claim a victory of sorts. Soon
after arriving at postal headquarters in 1992, Runyon blocked the agency from
proposing a 35-cent stamp - a rate that some postal executives wanted to impose
in 1995.
Instead, Runyon has effectively changed what historically has been a three-year
rate increase cycle. Under that cycle, the Postal Service would make a profit t
first year of higher stamp prices, break even the second and then post a deficit 1
the third year.

said.
Wharton said he is also deeply con-
cerned with how academia will con-
front the growing economic interde-
pendence of many countries. Wharton
said universities should place more
emphasis on studying abroad and inter-
national programs.

Trade in other countries should be

Wharton said.
Public Health Prof. Jason Finkle said
Wharton has a positive vision for the
future that many people should hear.
"I agree with his theories. He is
extremely precise and has an important
global theme that needs to be heard,"
Finkle said.
Wharton said he is passionate about

grams because of their cost.

process has been much slower than
usual.
"They're moving pretty slowly,"
Schwarz said. "I think we have to cut
them a little slack because they're fair-
ly new to the appropriations process."
Rep. Lynne Martinez (D-Lansing),
the vice chair of the House subcommit-
tee, said she is hopeful that her subcom-
mittee will come to a final proposal
Wednesday and there will be a final
budget by June, before the legislature's
summer recess.
Martinez also said the House will
probably recommend an increase of
between 3.5 and 4.5 percent.

Line-item veto ruled
unconstitutional
WASHINGTON - In a decision
affecting federal spending and the bal-
ance of governmental power, a judge
yesterday struck down as unconstitution-
al a law that lets the president veto spe-
cific items of bills passed by Congress.
The 37-page ruling by U.S. District
Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson over-
turns the Line-Item Veto Act. The law
was passed by Congress a year ago and
became effective Jan. 1, but President
Clinton has never exercised it.
The law allowed the president to veto
particular items in spending bills and
certain limited tax provisions passed by
Congress. Previously, the president
could only veto entire bills.
Jackson said the law flatly contra-
dicts basic tenets of the Constitution.
"Where the president signs a bill but
then purports to cancel parts of it, he
exceeds his constitutional authority and
prevents both houses of Congress from
participating in the exercise of lawmak-
ing authority," Jackson wrote.

"Never before has Congress attempt
ed to give away the power to shape the
content of a statute of the United
States, as the act purports to do. ... The
formalities of the constitutional frame
work must be respected."
First lady invokes
Hale-Bopp to critics
WASHINGTON - First lady
Hillary Rodham Clinton ridiculed sug-
gestions yesterday that anyone tried to
buy the silence of former Justice
Department official Webster Hubbell,
saying the continuing attention to the
Whitewater controversy is akinfa
"some people's obsession with UF
and the Hale-Bopp comet:'
Preventing Hubbell from cooperating
with Whitewater prosecutors "was not
the intention of anyone that I'm aware
of," she told an interviewer.
"There isn't anything to be hushed
up about, so I attribute that to the ongo-
ing saga of Whitewater," Mrs. Clinton
said in an interview with National
Public Radio's Diane Rehm.

PLO, Israel aim for
end to bombings
JERUSALEM - Raising hopes
for an end to the deadly Mideast
impasse, Palestinian police helped
Israel crack a cell of the Islamic mil-
itant group Hamas yesterday and
officials said Yasser Arafat had
pledged to work with Israel to stop
suicide bombings.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
credited the Palestinians for helping to
find the body of a missing Israeli sol-
dier, and said the Hamas cell that killed
him was responsible for at least 13
other deaths, including a March 21 sui-
cide bombing in a Tel Aviv cafe that
killed three women.
Arafat promised to help stop such
bombings this week in a meeting with,
the head of Israel's Shin Bet security
agency, Israeli and Palestinian officials
said Thursday.
The meeting was the first high-level
contact between Israel and the
Palestinians since Israel broke ground
three weeks ago for a new Jewish

neighborhood in the part of Jerusalem
claimed by the Palestinians. It raised
hopes that the daily - and deadly -
clashes in the West Bank could end.
But in the town of Hebron yesterd
hundreds of Palestinians threw stones
and firebombs at Israeli troops who
responded with rubber bullets, injuring
seven people.
Russia defends
ailing space station
MOSCOW - Russia's space ages
lashed back at NASA yesterday, ch

troubles aboard the Mir space station
and losing their nerve over minor
glitches.
The Mir, the world's only manned
space station, has had a run of bad luck:

main oxygen-generating system last
month and leaking coolant loops that
overheated the main living module to
