"I like the idea of moving to Angell
Hall; Thompson said. "It's one way of
making students' physically closer to
the administration. Moving to Angell
Hall will give a central position on
where the administration is."
Bollinger, unlike many past
University presidents, said he has made
a conscious effort to be more accessible
to students and faculty members. He
teaches an undergraduate class, has par-

ticipated in MSA-sponsored informal
chat sessions and visits with SACUA
on a regular basis.
But, Bollinger said, although he
likes the idea of tapping into the pulse
of daily campus life in his new loca-
tion, it will not necessarily mean that
students and faculty members can flow
freely in and out of his office.
"I would not make the claim that it
would be a benefit to have us closer to the
usual pathways of actuality and student
interaction," Bollinger said, laughing.

Highway deaths hit
a new all-time low

WASHINGTON (AP) - The gov-
ernment is crediting public safety cam-
paigns with pushing the highway death
rate to an all-time low last year.
Traffic accidents killed 41,967 peo-
ple in 1997. Since people drove nearly
2.6 billion miles, the death rate was 1.6
per 100 million miles traveled, the
National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration said.
Although the number of fatalities
has been lower in some other years, the
higher mileage held down the rate, the
lowest since NHTSA started keeping

statistics 30 years ago.
Traffic accidents killed 42,085 peo-
ple in 1996, for a rate of 1.7 deaths per
100 million miles.
Ricardo Martinez, the agency's direc-
tor, said yesterday the country is starting
to see the results of a coordinated effort
to crack down on drunken drivers and
red-light runners, as well as the benefit of
programs such as the institution of grad-
uated driver's licenses.
Much of the work has come in the
form of human-interest advertising cam-
paigns.

Starr sought to block pay subpoena
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Prosecutor Kenneth Starr asked the judge in the
Paula Jones case to block a subpoena by President Clinton's lawyers served on
the law firm where Starr's compensation has topped S1 million a year, docu-
ments show.
According to federal court documents released Monday, U.S. District Judg
Susan Webber Wright said the subpoena last December should stand so Clint*
could attempt to show any bias. Clinton was seeking possible links among Starr,
Starr's colleagues and Jones.
Starr's office did not immediately return phone calls yesterday.
Wright dismissed Mrs. Jones' sexual harassment lawsuit April 1.
Starr's intervention came at the same time he sought to limit the Clinton camp's
access to Monica Lewinsky during Starr's probe of possible perjury and obstruc-
tion of justice in the Jones case regarding Clinton's relationship with the former
White House intern.
Clinton and his lawyers sought any documents linking the Kirkland &
Ellis law firm of Chicago with lawyers or witnesses from the Paula Jones
case.
The law firm objected to the subpoena, saying information sought was irrelev*
or protected by attorney-client privilege.

Social Security
important to women
WASHINGTON -Wilma Haga, a
76-year-old widow, and Bernice Meyer,
a home-care aide who will have no
retirement check other than Social
Security, asked President Clinton and
Vice President Gore yesterday to keep
the massive federal program sound and
strong for future generations of benefi-
ciaries.
With $915 a month in Social
Security benefits, "I can live very
well, independently and ... without
assistance from my sons," Haga,
from Bristol, Tenn., told an audience
in the East Room at the White
House.
The 49-year-old woman from Seattle
makes $6.82 an hour and is beginning
to worry about her retirement years.
"I basically live paycheck to pay-
check," she said.
The two women joined Clinton
and Gore for a panel discussion that
highlighted the importance of
Social Security to women, both for

retirement and income protection.
The other message of the day from
the Clinton administration was a
political one -- that any changes to
assure Social Security's future sol-
vency won't endanger the basic pro-
tections offered now by the pr.
gram.
Marshals to guard
abortion doctors
AMHERST, NY. - When a sniper
shot and killed Dr. Barnett Slepian four
days ago at his home in this Buffalo sub-
urb, operations halted in western New
York's only remaining abortion clinic.
But now, guarded by U.S. marshalst
first of a dozen doctors who have vole
teered to rotate in performing abortions
in Slepian's place will resume the clinic's
operations, defying Friday's murder and
four previous sniper attacks on abortion
providers in this region and across the
border in Canada.
The shooting of Slepian was the latest
in a chain of strikingly similar shootings
directed against abortion doctors.

Milosevic dodges
NATO strikes
PRISTINA, Yugoslavia - President
Slobodan Milosevic, a champion of the
diplomatic bob and weave, has pulled
back just in time to dodge another blow.
As NATO's latest deadline closed in,
the Yugoslav leader withdrew hundreds
of police, soldiers and heavy weapons
from the battlefields of separatist
Kosovo province Monday.
By going to the brink again only to
step back, Milosevic has given NATO a
way out of airstrikes that could easily
create more problems than they might
solve in the Serbian province.
"We're sure that major progress has
been made today," a Western diplomat
said Monday, reflecting the suddenly
brighter mood among diplomatic
observers.
"It's definitely much more change
than we've seen any other single day
before this;' added the diplomat, who
spoke on condition he not be named.
Monday's withdrawals included at
least one army regiment of 600 sol-
diers, and more than 1,000 paramilitary

police from one of central Kosovo's
most dangerous areas, diplomats esti-
mated.
Serbian police also pulled down
checkpoints and set fire to at le
one as they withdrew, angry at w
they saw as a retreat that will only
hand territory back to separatist guer-
rillas.
Hurricane Mitch roars
off Honduran coast
LA CEIBA, Honduras - Hurricane
Mitch cut through the west*
Caribbean yesterday, pummeling
coastal Honduras and Belize with dri-
ving rain and fierce winds that snapped
trees and sent thousands of people flee-
ing for higher ground. Two storm-relat-
ed deaths were reported.
Honduran President Cars Flores
Facusse declared the highest state of
alert and sent in troops to evacuate thou-
sands of people from the sparsely popu-
lated coast. Thousands more made their
way to safer ground on their own.
