Paunovich said his approach to his
campaign for LSA representative on
the assembly also will be centered
around "going out and meeting people"
and "just getting to know people."
"I think that the mass flyer isn't as
effective as a word of mouth cam-
paign," said Paunovich, an LSA first-
year student.
"I think (mass postering doesn't)
give a reflection of candidates as much
as talking to them does. With the
University so large, it's hard to reach
out and know people,' he said.
Friedrichs said that although he is
running as an independent candidate,
he is not worried about the absence of a
party's help in contributing funds to his
campaign.
"Flashy posters and expensive ban-
ners may get your name out, but it
won't get you elected," Friedrichs
said. "We may be at a slight disad-
vantage because of our lack of fund-

ing, but in the end, it's face-to-face
and people-to-people contact that will
win."
Vice presidential candidate Michael
Enright also said he is not concerned
about financing his campaign. Enright
is running with the New Frontier Party.
Students' Party presidential candi-
date Trent Thompson said his low-bud-
get campaign will not affect his chances
for election. But Thompson said he may
have a difficult time getting his name
out to students.
"I would hope that when people vote,
they'll vote on issues instead of faces,"
Thompson said. "It depends on the edu-
cation of the voter."
Thompson said he has spent about
S 150 on posters and campaign supplies.
"It's ridiculous how much money
people do spend on elections for student
government," Thompson said. "We're
trying to go as cheap as possible."
A candidate information site is avail-
able for students to view on the web.
The site includes the ideas and plat-
forms of candidates.

of future research.
"It will help researchers overcome
a gender bias that is built into the
means for accessing historical infor-
mation," she said.
A library search on the Civil War, for
example, only would yield topics such
as military campaigns, weaponry, eco-
nomics and diplomacy - areas domi-
nated by men in the 1860s.
"The materials are often by and about
men," Bickner said. "This gender prob-
lem is especially true for materials that
were catalogued by an older generation
of librarians who did not need to support
research on the history of women.
"We are ... creating a means of direct
access to sources by and about women,"
she said.
The project also holds personal ben-
efits for the historians.
"The materials that we are reading
and describing are quite rich," Bickner
said. "I am now reading a series of letters
from a Civil War Union soldier ... and
the woman that he eventually marries.
"The language ... is so crisp and
vivid that I am getting to know these
people and their relationship to this
period in history," she said.
The project's focus on personal doc-
uments reflects an ongoing change in

the way all history is done, Onuf said.
"People aren't just writing biogra-
phies of dead white men anymore; they
are doing social history - the mun-
dane daily life and the 'nobodies,"'
Onuf said.
Abigail Stewart, director of the
Institute for Research on Women and
Gender, noted the importance of this
change.
"In exploring contemporary
women's lives, we have many
resources availabH interviews, obser-
vation, questionnaires from the
women themselves and from people
they know," Stewart said. "When,
however, we try to understc'nd
women's lives in the past, archiva!
records - correspondence and diaries
- are the closest thing we have to
direct, first-person accounts."
Onuf said she hopes the in-depth
index, when completed, will provide
a model for archiving all historical
manuscripts.
"I'm uncomfortable about think-
ing about it just as women's history.
It is about women's roles within
social systems," which also involve
men, Onuf said.
The Women in History project
received funding from the New
Century Fund for Diversity, a grant pro-
gram within the University that targets
progressive research projects.

AROUND THE NATION
Woman questioned about Clinton in
WASHINGTON - Prosecutors yesterday sought again to
test the truthfulness of recent sworn testimony from President
Clinton, questioning before a federal grand jury another
woman whose path has crossed his.
The witness, a former White House volunteer named
Kathleen Willey, made no public comments regarding her tes-
timony. In an apparent signal that she is not hostile to the inves-
tigation, Willey arrived at and departed the courthouse in the
company of the staff of Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr.
Willey is one of six women - including former White
tis, intern Monica Lewinsky - about whom Clinton was Clinton
qlueslic"ed Jan. 1 7 Uy syers for Paula Corbin Jones, the for-
met Arkanisg.; 'overnment employee who has filed a sexual harassment suit agail
Clinton.
Eight weeks ago, Starr's office began investigating whether Clinton had enco
aged Lewinsky directly or indirectly to lie under oath to Jones' lawyers aboie
nature of her relationship with the president.
Starr's investigation encompasses the efforts made by Clinton's trusted advis
Vernon Jordan Jr., to line up a job offer for Lewinsky.

"There is always (racial) tension, whether it is implicit or explicit," he said.
Olivari said tension on campus could be at even higher levels right now because
of increased attention to affirmative action caused by the two lawsuits filed this
past fall against the College of Literature, Science and the Arts and the Law School
that target the schools' use of race in the admissions process.
"Lots of people are against affirmative action," he said. "This adds to the tension
outside of people's normal beliefs."
Levy said people with information about the incident can anonymously call
the University's Witness Information Network at 800-863-1355.

Clinton announces
child care initiative
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -
Pledging to make government child-
care centers "models" for the
nation, President Clinton yesterday
directed all federal day-care facili-
ties to obtain independent accredita-
tion based on accepted safety and
quality standards.
At the same time, Clinton called on
Congress to address a "crying unmet
need" by acting on comprehensive leg-
islation to boost the affordability and
accessibility of child care for
preschoolers and school-aged children
across the country.
"We should not let the calendar get
in the way of the need for urgent
action;' Clinton told a group of several
hundred people in a community college
gymnasium in this blue-collar, New
England coastal city. "We can pass the
child-care reforms and we can fund
them."
The comments reflect a new effort
by Clinton to increase pressure on the

Republican-controlled Congress to
on his policy initiatives despite a re
tively short legislative calendar an
preoccupation with political and p
sonal scandals. At several points in
speech, Clinton noted that Co
has only 70 scheduled working
left this year.

ARouND THE WORLD

U.S. envoy warns
Serbs, Kosovo rebels
PRISTINA, Yugoslavia -
President Clinton's special repre-
sentative for the Balkans, Robert
Gelbard, flew into this tense city
yesterday to convey two messages to
Serbs and ethnic Albanians that nei-
ther group wanted to hear.
On the one hand, Gelbard
denounced the Serb government's
use of "brutal, disproportionate, and
overwhelming force" in its recent
killings of Albanian extremists and
at least 22 women and children near
the town of Srbica, west of Pristina.
He criticized the government for
trampling on the "rule of law" by
resorting to violence and then
blocking efforts by the Red Cross
and other independent groups to
gain access to the bodies of victims
and investigate possible war crimes.
Gelbard also told a procession of
Albanian political leaders, students
and prominent journalists that
Washington wants the Albanian
community to exercise caution and

restraint in responding to the v
lence and the Yugoslav gove
ment's intransigence. He fuj
reiterated that WashingtonI
opposes creation of an independ
Albanian nation in the Se
province of Kosovo - a messa
that went down poorly amo
Albanians here.
