tion, followed the keynote address.
Members of the first panel agreed that although
women have advanced greatly in the political arena,
there is a long way to go before equality is reached.
Helen Thomas, dean of the White House Press corps
and a 39-year veteran of Washington D.C. reporting,
said she remains outraged that women did not get the
-right to vote until 1920.
"The discrimination against women in journalism
has been fantastic," Thomas said. "But I think the atti-
tude of the government has had a lot to do with the
Both Anne Wexler, an assistant to former President
Jimmy Carter, and Liz Carpenter, who previously
served as press secretary to former First Lady Lady
Bird Johnson, echoed the journalist. They said they
believe the movement has come a long way, but total
success has not yet been achieved.
In contrast to the morning panel, the afternoon
discussion considered issues that will face the
women of the future. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-
Texas) said the inclusion of a wide range of women
in the political process is imperative to the future of
"I think this is the best time in the history of the
world to be a woman," Hutchison said. "And
America is the best place in the world to be a
Former White House Press Secretary Dee Dee
Myers, the first female to hold the position, said she
hopes the time of the "first woman" to do something
is coming to an end.
"We have to be grateful for the strides we've made
but also recognize the steps we still have to take,"
University President Lee Bollinger said he was
honored the panel members came to campus, and that
he believed it was due in great part to their deference

about is this year's game."
The texture of this year's game,
although unique from any other, is
strangely similar to the season finale
showdowns of previous years.
Michigan, after losing its first two
games of this season and temporarily fell
out of the rankings, rose from the ashes
to clinch a share of the Big Ten title.
Ohio State, on the other hand, was
largely considered the best team in the
nation. Ranked No. I from the onset of
the season, the Buckeyes dropped fol-
lowing a stunning defeat at the hands of
Michigan State two weeks ago. Ohio
State is still considered the best team in
the country by many Michigan players.
"Well, I think that they weren't
ranked No. I in the country for all
those weeks for nothing," Carr said.
With last week's triumph over the
Badgers, the Wolverines are in the dri-
ver's seat to the Rose Bowl and Ohio
State needs a little help to get to
Pasadena. Now, after three straight years
of disappointment, the tables may be
turned in favor of the Buckeyes. Will
they be the spoiler instead of the spoilee?
"It is hard to explain. I guess we just
happened to play better on those given
days"Michigan senior wide receiverTai
Streets said. "Ohio State has had some
great teams over the past few years, so it
is something that is difficult to explain.
Both ofourteams are well-prepared and
it is always a tight game, but somehow
we have been lucky enough to come out
on top lately."
Surplus may not save Social Security
WASHINGTON - The chairperson of the House tax-writ-
ing committee pressed the Clinton administration unsuccess-
fully yesterday for details of how the president envisions using
government budget surpluses to fix Social Security.
Republicans are still eyeing at least some of the money for
"What do we do out of the general Treasury to save Social
Security?" Rep. Bill Archer, (R-Texas), chairperson of the
House Ways and Means Committee, asked assistant Treasury
Secretary David Wilcox at the first congressional hearing on
the nation's retirement system since the Nov. 3 elections. Clinton
"There is no administration plan," Wilcox said, "and there-
fore I can't speak to how they could be used."
Congressional Republicans abandoned plans for a major tax cut this year in the
face of a politically popular challenge from President Clinton to "Save Social
Archer said earlier this week, however, that GOP lawmakers would push next
year for both Social Security changes and a large tax cut and that both are possi-

USDA defends exports
after bad meat found
WASHINGTON -- The
Agriculture Department tried to allay
concerns yesterday about contaminated
meat being shipped overseas after a
report that foreign officials found seri-
ous violations while inspecting U.S.
The violations of poor handling,
bad employee hygiene and improper
sterilization are detailed in an internal
memo sent by Mark Mina, deputy
administrator of the department's Food
Safety and Inspection Service.
Mina charges that some unidenti-
fied plants are operating with serious
deviations from U.S. standards as
well as those of the importing coun-
Some of those deviations include
"direct carcass contamination from
careless dressing procedure,' Mina
wrote. During careless dressing, stom-
ach contents and feces can be scattered
through the carcass, contaminating it
with E. coli and other bacteria.
USDA officials said yesterday any
problems found were immediately cor-
"Several problems were noticed but
they were immediately corrected," said
FSIS spokesperson Linda Swacina.
"No contaminated or adulterated prod-
ucts left any of these plants."
Feds look for ideas to
get kids to buckle up
WASHINGTON - The older chil-
dren get, the more likely they are to die
in auto crashes because they are not
buckled up, government safety offi-
cials said yesterday.
To try to increase the number of older
children who are properly restrained i
vehicles, Transportation Departmeo
officials are enlisting a panel of experts
from industry, the medical profession
and government to map out a strategy.
Children ages 4 through 15 are
most likely to die in auto accidents
while riding unrestrained or improperly
restrained, said Transportation
Secretary Rodney Slater.

Japan toward revival
TOKYO - President Clinton
offered measured praise today for
Japan's strategy to end the nation's
longest recession since World War II
but said he was "quite worried" about
trade battles unless Tokyo opens its
markets to American-made goods.
The president also suggested that
Japan might have expand its recovery
programs "to jolt the economy back
Clinton, in a speech to business
leaders, said the world may resort to
retaliatory protection unless Japan low-
ers trade barriers and opens its markets.
"I'm quite worried about this."
He complained in particular about
a 500 percent increase of Japanese
imports of hot-rolled steel into the
United States. He warned that the lack
of market access for American goods
"will create in our country the poten-
tial for a retrenchment here in a way
that will not be good for Asia or Japan
or for the United States in the long
"We want to keep our markets
open, but we need fair, rule-based, dis-
ciplined expansion," the president
He pressed Japan to vigorously
implement its programs to save failing
banks and to cut spending and taxes
$196 billion. He said that rapid action
Study tracks smoking
epidemic in China
Smoking causes about 750,000 pre-
mature deaths in China each year and
will kill 3 million a year by the middle
the next century if present trends contin-
ue, according to the largest-ever studies
of tobacco's risks released yesterday.
The research-the first nationwide
study of smoking trends in the develop-
ing world-provides the most compelling
evidence yet of how global smoking pat-
terns are shifting, with rates falling in
Western countries but rising in develop-
ing nations to become the world's lead-
ing public health prblem, experts said.
