said race is more than just skin tone. It
is an identity that includes experience
and ideology, he said.
"It should be a goal to emphasize a
cmmon humanity for all people,"
Moutz said. "If we're after diversity, the
proper way to achieve it is to ask."
The panels also debated the use of
gender preferences.
Graves avoided discussing this issue
because, he said, society treats gender
differently than it treats race.
"Gender preferences upset us less,"
Graves said.
But Gonos said she did not under-
stand Grave's statement. As a woman,
Ehe feels like an underrepresented
minority, she said.
Despite the disagreement among the
panelists, all six of the students agreed
that affirmative action is an issue that

needs to be debated.
"There is a problem with discrimina-
tion in our society," Moutz said.
Law first-year student Aba Yankah
said there is a need to break down com-
munication barriers on both sides of the
"What I got out of (the debate) was
the fact that there is still a gap of mis-
understanding that needs to be
bridged," Yankah said.
The debate was an example of how to
break down these barriers, Ellis said.
"I think it demonstrated that we can
talk and discuss this issue with civility,"
Ellis said.
Even though the discussion didn't
resolve any of the panelists arguments,
it gave students a chance to discuss the
issue, which some attendes said is
"If nothing else, it is good to have
people talk about this thing," said Law
first-year student Matt Roskoski.

Engineering senior. "You get an oppor-
tunity to meet so many people."
As proof, Henige attended -the
reunion with hallmates from his first
year at the University.
"We're a success story," Business
senior Matt Meyer said of the relation-
ships he and his hallmates have main-
tained during the past four years.
Meyer added that he enjoyed "seeing
the freshmen going through what we
went through.
"Its good to get back to your roots,
where it all started four years ago,"he said.
Business senior Roger Trim said the
visit to the cafeteria brought him back
to his early days at the University.

"Your perspective on things
changes," Trim said. "You see how
much you've changed."
Trim and Zimmerman noted how dif-
ferent it is to be a senior and have no

said, "you were going straight to the

Clinton: money for schools, not roads
CH ICAGO_- President Clinton ventured to the shuttered, raggedy classrooms
of a South Side Chicago school yesterday to turn the spotlight on congressional
Republicans who he said would finance roads instead of schools.
Peering beyond the plastic yellow tape that cordoned off an old fifth-grade room
at the Rachel Carson Elementary School, Clinton stared with dismay at the buck-
led and rotten floorboards, the peeling paint.
"This is a classroom?" the president asked.
Last year, the room's roof leaked so much that lessons had to be moved into the
hallway when it rained. Thanks to a school rehabilitation program in Chicago, the
former classroom is now used for storage.
To an assembly of students and community leaders, Clinton Toted that Senate
Republicans voted last week for billions in new highway projects but rejected his
plans for hiring 100,000 new teachers and modernizin 5,000 schools.
Republicans emphasize that they also voted for increased education spending by
billions of dollars - just not for federal programs Clinton wanted.
"I believe that we should have a good road program. I believe that unsafe
bridges ought to be repaired," Clinton said yesterday. "But none of that will
matter very much if we let the education system come crumbling dow4
around our children."

He left us an inspirational legacy to be
"BRILLIANT" in everything that we do.
Please help us honor his memory.
The various clubs of the University of Michigan
Political Science Department are collecting personal reflections on
Professor Organski. These will be compiled into a
book of memories and presented as a gift to his family.
Deadline: To day,Thursday, April 9
Submissions from students and colleagues may be
submitted over email at kg rauer@umich.edu.

said he hopes that through the vigils
and forums the group held this
week, students are able to see that
there is a support network available
on campus.
"Cancer is something that affects
college students' lives," Cucinella
LSA first-year student Beth
Houtrow, whose mother survived
breast cancer, said she would consid-
er using the drug after doing some
research on it.
"I definitely would use the (new drug)

if I researched and felt safe with it,"
Houtrow said. "There's a long history of
cancer... not necessarily breast cancer, in
my family."
Although Wicha said he is excited
about all of the attention the study is
receiving, he said more research on the
drug needs to be done.
"I think its a breakthrough, but we
need more follow-up to make sure."
Wicha said it is important that the
study's findings be made known
because "you can't wait too long if you
can help people right now."
Wicha said researchers are working
to develop drugs similar to tamoxifen
that don't have the harmful side effects.

Clinton lawyers
want closed court
WASHINGTON - Lawyers for
President Clinton, the White House and
Monica Lewinsky joined forces yester-
day to ask a federal appeals court to
continue to bar the news media from a
variety of sealed court hearings on
claims of executive privilege and attor-
ney-client privilege.
In a rare open court session on
motions arising from the grand jury
investigation of the Lewinsky matter,
a consortium of a dozen news organi-
zations asked a three-judge panel to
overturn a series of orders by Chief
U.S. District Judge Norma Holloway
Johnson. Johnson has refused media
requests to cover most hearings
before her on privilege claims, as
well as denying public access to deci-
sions she has issued and legal argu-
ments filed with her.
Among the matters Johnson has
considered in closed hearings are
Clinton's reported invocation of
executive privilege to shield White

House aides Bruce Lindsey and
Sidney Blumenthal from certain
questions, alleged leaks by indepen-
dent counsel Kenneth Starr's office,
and attorney Francis Carter's
attempt to decline to answer ques-
tions involving his former client
Senator to review
Clinton hearings
WASHINGTON - Anticipating
a report from Independent Counsel
Kenneth Starr, House Speaker Newt
Gingrich recently tapped a fresh-
man Republican to review the mul-
tiple congressional hearings on
alleged Clinton administratiorl
Rep. James Rogan (R-Calif.), a
former judge, will research what has
gone well for Republicans who ran
those hearings and what pitfalls to
avoid in the future. He learned of
his new task in calls from Gingrich's
office and the office of House
Judiciary Committee Chair Henry
Hyde (R-1ll.)


Peace negotiators
meet non-stop
BELFAST, Northern Ireland _
Protestants and Catholics, Irish and
British met virtually nonstop yesterday
as the final hours ticked away before
the deadline for a peace deal in
Northern Ireland.
British Prime Minister Tony Blair
and his Irish counterpart Bernie
Ahern took a direct hand in the
negotiations, Ahern- flying here in
the early morning, flying back to
Dublin, Ireland, so he could attend
the burial of his 87-year-old mother,
then returning to Belfast.
The talks, designed to end three
decades of sectarian violence and
bloodshed in this British province,
were unexpectedly stalled Tuesday
when the largest Protestant party,
the Ulster Unionists, flatly rejected
a draft settlement drawn up by the
chair of the negotiations, former
U.S. Senate Majority Leader George
His 65-page proposal, the Ulster
Unionists complained in a toughly

worded statement, includes suggestions
tantamount to "embryonic all-Ireland
On a day laced with cold rain and
sleet, Blair and Ahern met for a
hour at Hillsborough Castle, south-
west of Belfast. The two leaders
then conferred separately with
negotiators from Northern Ireland's
political parties.
Yeltsin threatens
Latvia with reprisals
MOSCOW - A simmering dispute
over the treatment of ethnic Russians ii
Latvia intensified yesterday as
President Boris Yeltsin threatened to
take economic reprisals against Riga,
such as rerouting Russian oil exports
away from the Baltic state.
After a month of rhetorical joust-
ing between Russia and Latvia,
Yeltsin for the first time endorsed
calls by Russian politicians to tighten
the economic noose around Latvia in
retaliation for the treatmento
Russians there.
