power of people in government.
As a student at Swarthmore
College in the 1950s, Levin partici-
pated in a petition drive to collect
signatures in support of the censure
of former Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-
Wisconsin). McCarthy lead a vigor-
ous search to expose U.S. citizens
who he presumed to be communists,
but was later was censured for acts
unbecoming of a senator after his
accusations were proved false.
Levin and five other students col-
lected 800 signatures from their cam-

pus requesting that the government
punish the actions of McCarthy. The
group hand delivered the scraps of
paper to their U.S. representative on
the same day that one million signa-
tures of McCarthy supporters were
delivered in an armored car to
Levin said photos of both deliveries
were juxtaposed on the front page of
every newspaper in the country the next
day. Receiving so much attention for
their efforts impacted him, he said.
"You can do something with very
few resources that come overcome larg-
er resources," he said.
Also speaking at the conference were

Dan Senor, press secretary for Sen.
Spencer Abraham (R-Mich.) and Bryce
Sandler, the finance director for Rep.
Joe Knollenberg (R-Bloomfield Hills).
Both stressed the importance of experi-
ence and networking to advance in
political life.
Conference Coordinator Donnie
Tigay, an LSA senior, said she was
extremely pleased with the outcome of
the conference.
"I was personally very impressed
with the caliber of speakers we had,'
she said. "It's great to say that on a
Super Bowl Sunday we got about 150
people here. It shows how much they
care about the issue."

ing" is among his top priorities for the
year. He would like to see more money
coming in from the state government.
The University, "needs to keep at
the forefront of the fields in which
we work," Bollinger said.
He said the private universities
joining the University as the
nation's leading research institu-
tions often receive more money in
donations and stock market gains.
These monetary issues put the
University in a very competitive
position, he said.

Census bureau mounts ad campaign
WASHINGTON - Worried that segments of the U.S. population might not par-
ticipate in the 2000 census, federal officials are mounting an ambitious $100-mil-
lion advertising campaign to sell racial and ethnic minorities on the benefits of
being counted.
Young & Rubicam Inc., a giant New York advertising agency, is crafting an ov
all media campaign - "This is your future. Don't leave it blank!" - to encoura?
all U.S. citizens to fill out and return the mail-in census forms.
Individual advertising companies, employed as subcontractors to Young &
Rubicam, are creating targeted campaigns with overt racial or cultural mes-
sages aimed at black, Latino/a, Asian American and American Indian popula-
Print and broadcast ads targeted at American Indians, for instance, draw
attention to the family. "Generations are counting on this. Don't leave it
blank!" they say.
For black citizens, media messages evoke racial and community solidarity:
"This is our future. Don't leave it blank."
And ads aimed at Latino/as and Asian Americans translate the catch phrase
Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, Korean and other languages to be used in ads deveT
oped for ethnic media.

Albanian leaders
need to unite
PRISTINA,Yugoslavia - Only days
before Kosovo Albanians were expect-
ed to talk peace with the Serbs, US.
and British envoys were shuttling
between hotel rooms, explaining con-
ference plans to rival ethnic Albanians
who wouldn't even sit together.
Beyond that common goal of indepen-
dence for their Kosovo homeland, ethnic
Albanian leaders are divided by deep
personal and philosophical differences,
petty rivalries and a desire for power.
The success of the international
Kosovo peace conference, which the
United States and five major European
powers have called for Feb. 6, may
depend largely on whether these groups
can speak with a single voice in negoti-
ations with the Serbs.
"There is considerable pressure now
for them to unite, and it's not only com-
ing from the international community
but from inside the Albanian communi-
ty as well,"Veton Surroi, an influential
ethnic Albanian journalist, told The
Associated Press.

Independence from the Yugoslav
republic of Serbia is a goal agreed on

Jordan's Crown Prince Abdullah, a
career soldier thrown into the affairs ofa
state by an ailing father who set aside the
brother he had groomed to take the
throne for 34 years.
So far, his reviews are good-but he
remains untested. For Abdullah himself,
