2A - The Michigan Daily - Monday,
CLINTON
Continued from Page IA
Hyde said senators would probably not
break party ranks, especially if public
opinion polls continue to show Clinton
receiving high marks for his job perfor-
mance.
Showing Clinton the White House
door, Hyde said, "would have to be done
by the Senate in a bipartisan way." He
predicted that the Senate "won't do that
until the American people move."
Conyers said the important point is not

how the Senate might eventually vote,
but whether events are moving too fast
for Clinton to receive a just hearing.
"The question is not whether
Democrats.will vote for it," he said, "but
whether we've got a fair proposal to
begin one of the most serious proceed-
ings that any of us have faced since 1974.
And the answer, if I might, is 'No, we
don't.'"
In 1974 the House Judiciary
Committee approved three articles of
impeachment against President Nixon in
the Watergate scandal. Nixon resigned

before the full House could vote on the
issue, and his vice president, Gerald R.
Ford, became president.
Ford joined the ranks yesterday of
those who are looking for a way out of
the current imbroglio. In an essay in yes-
terday's New York Times, he wrote that,
although he is not interested in "rescu-
ing" Clinton, he is deeply concerned that
the scandal is deflecting focus from more
important government issues.
"I do care, passionately, about rescuing
the country I love from further turmoil or
uncertainty,"he wrote.

To that end Ford proposed that Clinton
stand in the well of the House and, before
live television cameras, be subjected to a
public scourging that would culminate
with his censure.
"No spinning, no semantics, no
evasiveness or blaming others for his
plight," Ford wrote. "Let all this be
done without partisan exploitation
or mean-spiritedness. Let it be dig-
nified, honest, and above all, cleans-
ing. The result, I believe, would be
the first moment of majesty in an
otherwise squalid year."

Majority rules Supreme Court Clerk jobs
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court opens its new term today, upholding
an old tradition.
Of the 34 law clerks who will work alongside the justices to research legal prece-
dents and draft legal arguments, only one this term will be a racial minority, a Latina.
And for the second consecutive year, no blacks are among the prestigious few
hired to help the nine justices decide and draft opinions on legal cases such as
affirmative action and other racially sensitive issues.
Outraged by this historic domination of the clerk positions by whites, the
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and civil rights
activists are rallying supporters for a protest in front of the Supreme Court when
it opens, as usual, the first Monday in October.
"The fact that the nine justices who sit on the highest court in the land do not
practice equal opportunity exposes a great deal of hypocrisy," NAACP President
and Chief Executive Kweisi Mfume said. "By not hiring more people of color,
the Supreme Court is reducing opportunities and increasing the pain index for
minorities."
The activists admit that they do not realistically expect the justices to heed
their pleas. Instead, their goal is to focus public attention on what Mfume calls
the high court's "shameful record in hiring minority clerks."

Tax pa ers will fund
rebuilding efforts
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -At a shel-
ter in Puerto Rico last week, Hillary
Rodham Clinton spoke of a $39 million
dollar U.S. grant to rebuild hurricane-
ravaged homes.
But two weeks after Hurricane
Georges pummeled this U.S. territory,
thousands still languish in schools,
community centers and the homes of
family and friends - and her pledge
looks like a drop in the bucket.
The cost of getting the homeless into
homes will be far greater than virtually
anyone had imagined, probably well
beyond $1 billion.And U.S. taxpayers
are sure to foot most of the bill.
"We're talking megabucks," said
Michael Colon, the Caribbean coordi-
nator for the U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development.
Officials originally estimated overall
property damage to the island -
including roads, public buildings,
parks, beaches -at $2 bil lion, a figure
now believed to be underestimated.

So far, the effort to solve the home-
less crisis has been accompanied by
confusion. Officials still don't know
how many homeless there are - or
how to give them homes.
Aside from killing three people on
the island, Georges destroyed nearly
30,000 houses and damaged at lea
another 60,000.
Teachers protest
certifcation test
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Aspiring
teachers lined up again Saturday to take
a controversial certification test required
by Massachusetts schools.
And the latest round of test-taking
again brought a litany of complaints,
ranging from concerns about the test*
relevance to gripes about needing a hall
pass to use the bathrooms.
"I really saw no relevance to what we
just did as to what we do in the class-
room each day"said Leo Lawless, 48, a
substitute teacher in Waltham. "I don't
think it showed anything."
In the first exam given in April, 59
percent of 1,795 test-takers failed.

Turkey threatens to
use force in Syria
ANKARA, Turkey -With reports
of Turkish troops massed on Syria's
border, President Suleyman Demirel
warned Damascus on yesterday that
Turkey would not allow its neighbor
to continue sheltering Kurdish
rebels.
Ankara has threatened to send forces
across the border to eradicate guerrilla
bases in Syria, which Turkey accuses of
harboring rebels who wage cross-bor-
der attacks. Damascus denies the
charge.
"I am not only warning Syria, I am
warning the world. This cannot contin-
ue," the Anatolia news agency quoted
Demirel as saying.
"We are in a position of self-
defense' he was quoted as saying.
"The situation is serious. Turkey has
suffered for many years, and it no
longer wants to suffer."
In an effort to head off a military
conflict, Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak held talks yesterday with
Syrian President Hafez Assad in
riir. 1

Damascus and was due in Turkey later
this week.
Mubarak left after the two-hour
meeting with Assad without speak-
ing to reporters. But Egyptian
Foreign Minister Amr Moussa sai
Mubarak "backs dialogue for solv-
ing disputes and not military power.
and threats."
Po e appeals for
he p in Kosovo
SPLIT, Croatia - Ending a three-
day pilgrimage to the Balkans, Poe
John Paul II yesterday urged Croatian
to heal the scars of war and dictator-
ship, and appealed to the international
community to give "timely help" to set-
tle the conflict in Kosovo.
The pope called on more than 300,000
worshippers at a seaside Mass here to
"give a new face" to Croatia by renewing
its moral values.
"This is an urgent task, for without
values there can be no true freedom or
true democracy,"he said.
