if it needs to be done as often."
Thompson said following up ABTS
activities with other joint government
efforts is one way to address
Bollinger's concerns about the limited
publicity that Big 10 schools receive
"Instead of just exchanging informa-
tion, I would like to go to Washington
and lobby as the Big 10 schools,"
Thompson said. "We could form a con-
sensus as a whole."
Michigan Student Assembly Vice
President Olga Savic said the confer-
ence does not do enough to bridge the
gap between the Big 10 student govern-
"If we did act together on these ideas
we could create a strong association
between the schools," Savic said. "We
could bring (ABTS) to new levels."
Other government representatives vis-
iting Ann Arbor for the weekend said the
conference was a positive experience.
"It helps us to exchange dialogue
and share information," said Indiana
student government Rep. Nancy Shinn.
"I am impressed with the turnout by
In his discussion of some of the
University's critical issues, Bollinger
said that when he first began his term
as University president, he was fore-
warned that affirmative action policies
would come under attack.
"I was told the University would be the
next university challenged," Bollinger
said. "That did not happen. Instead, the
University of Washington was the next
university to be challenged."
MSA representatives said they were
surprised to hear Bollinger speak
frankly about the status of affirmative
action at the University.
"I was actually surprised the way he
bought in the issue of affirmative
action and that he thought student gov-
ernments have a role," said LSA Rep.
MSA President Mike Nagrant said
affirmative action is an issue that could
no longer be ignored by campus lead-
ers and the student body alike.
"I like the idea that we need to raise
consciousness,' Nagrant said. "The
piece on affirmative action is very
important - MSA is taking a lot of
AROUND THE NATI N
Donation probe looks at 'soft-money'
WASHINGTON -They gathered every Wednesday night during the politically
turbulent months of late 1995 and early 1996, closeting themselves in a comfort-
able room in the residential part of the White House to talk campaign strategy.
More often than not on those evenings, the discussion among President Clinton
and his political inner circle focused on an unprecedented early television blitz th
had launched. It was a blitz many observers believe played a crucial rol
Clinton's re-election by letting him seize control of the campaign's agenda at its
This early air war was the brainchild of Clinton's personal political guru, Dick
Morris. The spots were written and prepared by the Clinton campaign's media
team, Bob Squier and Bill Knapp, often after extensive review and revision by the
president himself at the Wednesday meetings or follow-up sessions in the Oval
Office, according to some of those present.
But while the ads were Clinton campaign commercials in everything but name,
they were bought not by the president's re-election committee but by the
Democratic National Committee and its state affiliates. And they were largely
financed not by tightly regulated "hard-money" contributions but by "soft mone
donations of unlimited size and virtually unrestricted origin that flowed to bo
parties in unprecedented amounts during the 1996 campaign.
Race initiative may
be at a standstill
WASHINGTON - The schedule
called for President Clinton to meet with
his advisory board on race for an hour.
But as they sat around a table in the
Renaissance Mayflower Hotel last week,
no one seemed sure what to say or do.
Clinton spoke briefly and extempo-
raneously, throwing out a few sugges-
tions, such as asking the board to com-
pile a compendium of efforts around
the country to foster racial healing. A
few board members commented on
what they had seen in their travels. And
then, after 45 minutes, when no one
else spoke up, Clinton departed.
Nearly four months after Clinton
launched his ambitious campaign to
improve race relations in the post-civil
rights era, many involved in the effort
agree that the initiative is off track,
foundering in uncertainty about what
its mission should be and struggling for
Already a third of the way into the
year allotted for the project, the race
board so far has accomplished little
other than assembling a staff and hear-
ing a few presentations on demograph-
ics and attitude surveys.
Individual board members have
attended many events, but collectivel
they have met just twice and the
presidential town-hall meeting on race
will not take place until December.
WASHINGTON -More than $1 out
of every $7 the federal government
spent in the last year went to pay interest
on the $3.8 trillion national debt, wh
has doubled in less than a dozen yea
Now that President Clinton and
Congress have agreed to balance the
federal budget, some economic ana-
lysts say they should consider running
budget surpluses to pay down the debt
- the accumulated total of past annual
deficits - and to reduce the govern-
ment's interest bill, which reached $245
billion in fiscal 1997, which ended
