GAMBLING
Continued from Page 1.
"I think it goes further down the slippery slope than
I'm comfortable with at this time."
Schauer added that he supported the state resolution
allowing casinos to operate on Native American reser-
vations, but said he feels the type of gambling in
Jaye's bill leaves too many possibilities open.
"I think there could be some negative repercus-
-sions," he said.
Marc Amy, manager of Gallagher's Eatery and
Sports Bar on South State Street, said the passage of
Jaye's bill would allow businesses to join in the fun
with their customers.
"Being a sports bar, it would be an especially

good idea. We could get everybody involved,"
Amy said, adding that owners and employees
know small-stakes betting takes place, but estab-
lishments try to distance themselves from gam-
bling activities.
The threat of prosecution keeps a strict no-gam-
bling policy in place at Touchdown Cafe, said gener-
al manager Julie Hazimi. But a change in the law
could equal a change in business - and that's some-
thing the Ann Arbor bar would eagerly take advan-
tage of, she said.
"There's always an interest," Hazimi said. "If (the
law) passed, it would be a real draw."
Hazimi also said gambling pools organized by
restaurants or bars would take away the headache for
participants.

"If there was an establishment that set it up, took the
work out of it and kept track of points, I think it would
be a great thing for customers," she said.
LSA sophomore Craig Peiser said if the bill passes,
he would definitely participate in bar-sponsored
pools.
"Everyone is doing it anyway and I haven't really
heard of anyone getting caught," Peiser said. "If it's
going to help a business draw customers, then I think
it's OK."
Peiser also said the broad range of participants in
bar and restaurant-sponsored pools would make them
more fun.
"As long as the money they make isn't through the
pool, it might make things more interesting" if a big-
ger group is involved, he said.

Pentagon scrambles to avoid shortage
WASHINGTON - The Pentagon is scrambling to avoid a shortage of Crnise
missiles, increasingly the weapon of choice in attacking heavily defended targets
in places like Iraq and Yugoslavia.
Before the latest NATO strikes over Kosovo and Serbia, the Air Force was down
to 150 cruise missiles carrying conventional warheads. At least 30 have .bj
launched since then. The Navy has more than 2,000 but is using them up at a 'fater
rate. No cruise missile production line is in operation.
"The stocks of air-launched cruise missiles are limited, and it's something we're
addressing" Pentagon spokesperson Kenneth Bacon said yesterday.
The dwindling supply is "something we do worry about," he said. "We halve a
supply now but it won't last forever. But we certainly have enough to continue
striking important targets."
The Air Force announced yesterday that the Office of Management and Budget
was permitting it to convert 92 nuclear-tipped cruise missiles into conventional air-
launched cruise missiles, or CALCMs. The $51 million program will require con-
gressional approval.
In an era in which aversion to casualties tops the list of military priorities, cn
missiles have increasingly become Pentagon planners' preferred weapon.

Michigan's Asian students and fre-
quently extended to them the hospitali-

The scholarship Barbour established
for Asian students in 1917 brought
many more women of color to campus.
"Among women students at
Michigan, racial integration and accep-
tance seem to have functioned in the
1890s," Bordin wrote. "Segregation
and prejudice came later."
With the1920s came an influx of not
only more college students across the
country, Solomon wrote, but also more
people of different races, religions and
ethnic backgrounds applying to the pre-
dominantly white institutions.
"Not all institutions welcomed the
influx," Solomon wrote. Older private
schools, "perturbed ... by the ethnic
diversity of new students," came up
with ways to restrict access to people
who did not fit their standards.
"Most educators believed they must

preserve the so-called Anglo-Saxon
superiority of their colleges and used
the popular scientific theory of inherent
racial differences to justify their intent,"
Solomon wrote.
While the majority of black college
students attended historically black col-
leges, Jewish women's enrollment was
rising at all the predominantly white
schools, Solomon wrote.
At the University, Jewish women were
not excluded from available housing, but
Asian and black women often had trou-
ble finding good housing, Bordin wrote.
Not only did black women have to
live in segregated housing during the
1920s, but "the color line was drawn at
all campus dances and other social
activities. African Americans were
banned from the university's swimming
pools and gymnasia. Racism flourished
among the faculty, students, and admin-
istrators."
The Negro-Caucasian Club, formed
in 1926 by black and white students,
helped to change University housing
policies, Bordin wrote.

titled "Your MSA Elections Ballot,"
can recast their vote until 11:59
Thursday at www.umich.edu/-vote.
Members of the Students Party,
including Chopp, a presidential can-
didate, planned to file a complaint
with the Central Student Judiciary
about certain decisions the Elections
Board made since last week.
The CSJ is a group of students
appointed by the assembly to handle
complaints against the elections
board.
Members of the elections board
"are trying to keep candidates in the
election," Chopp said. "I question the
purpose of the elections board."
In reaction to the Students' Party's
case, Serowik said, "all of the deci-
sions of the election board are
defendable."

Outlook improves
for Social Security
WASHINGTON - The healthy
economy has boosted the fortunes of
Social Security and Medicare, delaying
the date when each will run short of
money, trustees for the two retirement
programs announced yesterday.
"The strength of our economy has led
to modest but real improvements,"
President Clinton said.
It is the second consecutive year that
stronger-than-expected economic
growth has improved the outlook for the
nations retirement system.
Medicare, the health insurance pro-
gram for the elderly and disabled, had
been projected to run short of cash in
2001. Last year that date was moved to
2008, and yesterday's report moves it fur-
therto 2015.
The Social Security insolvency date,
extended last year from 2029 to 2032,
was moved yesterday to 2034.
Yet Clinton and Republicans in
Congress both said they will continue to
press for changes to strengthen the retire-

ment system this year.
"Now is the time to make these
changes.... Now, when we have tire on
our side," Clinton said.
Rep. Clay Shaw (R-Fla.), chair 6f the
House Ways and Means Social Secu
subcommittee, said lawmakers "mW
not lose focus or become complacent.
The longer we delay true reform, the
more difficult it will be."

Mexico's experiment
in Democracy fails
MEXICO CITY - In an ill-starred
experiment with internal democracy,
Mexico's long-ruling Institutional
Revolutionary Party chose a new leader
yesterday - the only candidate on the
ballot.
The party's failure to carry off an
election with multiple candidates cast a
pall over the victory of Jose Antonio
Gonzalez Fernandez.
Some analysts predicted that the
turbulent election, marred by charges
of manipulation, will intensify a
power struggle in the party, known as
the PRI.
"The differences within the party
are sharpening. There is permanent
uncertainty" about the PRI's future,
said Joel Estudillo, an analyst at the
Mexican Institute of Political
Studies.
If divisions in the party aren't
healed, "there is the possibility of a
return of political violence," he
warned, referring to the bloodshed

that accompanied the 1994 presiden-
tial campaign.
The PRI, however, wasn't the only
party failing at internal elections
reflection of the fragility of MexUc
institutions, the main left-wing qppo-
sition group, the Democratic
Revolution Party, is leaderless 4s
well.
Rescuers retrieve

MANILA, Philippines - Resct

miners from the mountainous region :to
retrieve the bodies from the winding, 75-
foot tunnel in the town of Lumban.-
Breathing from oxygen tanks, the min-
ers hoisted the bodies, wrapped in plastic
bags, from the tunnel early yesterday..
