Without such a system, Parker said, poor chil-
dren will continue to attend the least adequate
The welfare system, she said, was attractive to her
and continues to attract millions of people because it
pays more than many jobs.
"They've gotten so entrenched in the system, they
don't know how to get out," Parker said. "But there is
life after welfare."
Instead of welfare, Parker said people can rise
from poverty by obtaining an education, saving
and investing money, getting married, finding a
job and working harder than anyone else in the


"I had to humble myself and walk into a place
where I thought all white people were racist and ask
for a job," Parker said.
Parker, who was a consultant last year for a fed-
eral bill that gave increased welfare power to the
states, said she pushed for complete elimination of
welfare by 2000.
Some members of the audience said that in some
cases, welfare is necessary to rise from poverty.
"There are a lot of people who have to resort to welfare
in order to get an education:' said LSA junior Shauna
Holland. "I don't understand how she can just say, 'Let's
get rid of welfare.' There are a lot of people abusing wel-
fare, but it should not be stopped completely."

But the two nurses smoking in the
courtyard said they know the dangers of
smoking, but aren't going to quit.
"I will just go to my car to smoke if
I have to," said one nurse, who wished
to remain anonymous. "it is a violation
of my rights because it is not illegal to
smoke. Well, not yet."
Officials said provisions for the new
plan are still being worked out, and
consequences for those smoking in vio-
lation of the new rules have not yet
been determined.
Robert Gilmont, a Medical School
research investigator, said the new plan
will not stop him from smoking either.
"I know I am killing myself. That is
my choice," Gilmont said as he puffed
on a cigarette.
Others said another reason for
tougher limitations on smoking is the
image of the Medical Center.
"It looks bad for medical students to be
smoking," said Becky Johnson, a
Nursing junior. But she said the new plan
will not stop people from smoking - it
will only make it harder to smoke.
Harrison also said cigarette butts are
a problem in the designated areas. He
says it is hard to keep up with all the
waste that is caused by smoking.
Smokers said mountains of cigarette
-butts were a common problem.
"The area does get junked up, but it
is because there are not enough ash
trays," said one of the nurses as she
stomped on a butt she had just thrown
on the ground.

Cure for AIDS virus eludes scientists
It appears very unlikely that infection with the AIDS virus can be cured by two
or three years of treatment with powerful antiviral medicines, as some researchers
and many patients had hoped.
Three new studies show that the AIDS virus survives in a few cells - and can
be stimulated to emerge from them - years after it has been expunged fronte
bloodstream. This suggests that to date antiviral drug therapy is only holding '
at bay, not eradicating it.
Some AIDS researchers had hoped that combinations of three antiviral drugs -
often called "triple therapy"- might cure a person of H IV infection in as little as
three years, provided the treatment was followed strictly.
The theory was that after the drugs halted virus replication, cells previously
infected would die off, eventually leaving a patient free of disease. While this sce-
nario is still possibleit clearly won't happen on the schedule many had predicted
- if it happens at all.
"This clearly points out additional obstacles that must be overcome in
order to achieve the goal of eradication," said David Ho, a co-author of one
of the papers and one of the more outspoken proponents of the idea t
human immunodeficiency virus infection may ultimately be curable with

White House blasts
Congress for cuts
House yesterday called "utterly
boneheaded" a last-minute maneu-
ver by Congress that -took away
United Nations funds just as the
administration is trying to hold
together a fragile international
coalition against Iraq.
Outraged White House officials
and Democrats accused Republican
leaders of undermining the presi-
dent's leverage with the international
community by denying the adminis-
tration's request for payment of $926
million of U.N. arrears and a $3.5 bil-
lion credit line for the International
Monetary Fund because of a long-
festering dispute over abortion poli-
But by day's end, the White House
appeared resigned to have to re-fight
the matter when Congress returns next
The move came as Congress rushed
to conclude a highly fractious session
Iraq expels six
American inspectors
UNITED NATIONS - Iraq dramat-
ically raised the stakes in its confronta-
tion with the United Nations yesterday
by expelling six Americans on a U.N.
weapons inspection team, leading the
world body to instruct the entire team
to leave the country.
In response to Iraqi orders, the
Americans reportedly were enrouteby
road to Jordan late yesterday. Seventy-
two non-American members of the
weapons inspection team are to depart
Baghdad by plane today.
The Iraqi move was a defiant
response to the Security Council's
demand Wednesday that Baghdad stop
interfering with the U.N. Special
Commission (UNSCOM) searching for
hidden Iraqi weapons programs. At the
request of the United States, the 15-
nation council began urgent consulta-
tions last night about how to deal with
the latest Iraqi challenge.
Following the expulsion order, the
White House convened two long ses-
sions on Iraq involving President

that produced a major balanced bud-
get and tax cut plan but took no action
on the administration's "fast-track"
trade negotiations legislation.
Congress completed work on the
last of the 13 annual spending b's,
including one that finances the ,.
government, before departing for the
Fen-phen users
should see a doctor
ATLANTA - Anyone who has
ever used the two recently recalled
diet drugs, fen-phen and Redux for
any amount of time should s(
doctor and get a physical examma-
tion, the U.S. government said yes-
The advice comes two months
after fenfluramine - the "fen" in
the diet combination fen-phen -
and Redux were pulled from the
market because extended use for six
months or more has been linked to
potentially deadly heart valve dam-
Clintons' senior national security
advisers. After participating in the first
session, Clinton said, "Iraq's announce-
ment this morning to expel e
Americans from the inspection tea is
clearly unacceptable and a challenge to
the international community." He
promised "to pursue this matter in a
very determined way."
Report: Informant

JERUSALEM -Two years afte e
assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, a se et
report released yesterday says an infor-
mant for Israel's Shin Bet secret service
never told his handlers that a close
acquaintance was bragging aboit a
plan to kill the Israeli leader.
The acquaintance, a right-wing reli-
gious Jew named Yigal Amir, later car-
ried out his threat, gunning down-Rabin
at a Tel Aviv peace rally on Nov. 4, 1995.
The revelations came amid attemptby
