LSA junior Shannon Saksewski,
another of the fair's organizers, said the
event is not just to get females
involved, but to raise awareness among
"We wanted to get more people
involved in the feminist cause. We want
to have men say that they are proud to
be a feminist," Saksewski said.
LSA junior John Koh said he had
many misconceptions about feminism
until he took a psychology course that
addressed the concept of feminism.
"Before I took this class, I thought
that feminists were just bitter people
attacking the male race," Koh said. "I
now realize that their cause is more

about equal standing and women's dis-
advantages in society."
Koh said that when he first entered
the Diag, he thought there was a carni-
val in progress.
"I didn't know what was going on on
the Diag until a friend told me. I don't
think they did a good job of getting
their message across. They should have
put up more signs or given out infor-
mation with the cotton candy," Koh
Several student and non-student
groups had booths on the Diag for the
event. The Washtenew Rainbow Action
Project, an education and advocacy
group for lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender individuals was stationed
on the Diag during the event. The
group's Membership Chair Sandi
Smith said she wanted to raise aware-
ness and visibility of the group's ser-
"People have been passing by all day
and picking up stuff they'd normally
not be confronted with," Smith said.
Smith said she believed the purpose
of the event was to address many of the

social concepts facing society today.
"We're here to fight all the 'isms' in
society - racism, sexism, heterosex-
ism, and patriarchism," Smith said.
Students Organizing for Labor and
Economic Equality also participated in
the event. LSA sophomore Ian
Wiesner, one of SOLE's members, said
feminism and labor are two related
"In order to better women in society,
we must provide fair treatment for
workers," Wiesner said.
Stephanie Hauman of Planned
Parenthood of Tri-Michigan said the
fair was good exposure for her group.
"We want to let more people know
we exist," Hauman said. "Some of the
services we provide for women include
health care and advocacy for reproduc-

included a bean bag toss through the

Jackson's visits to schools across the
country show his commitment to youth,
Anderson said. "The Reverend is invited
to speak at paid events but takes more
him. We want to tell him about our con-
cerns regarding poverty, women's
health, welfare, and lesbian, gay, bisex-
ual, and transgender issues," Saksewski
Saksewski said the fair had a band
playing on the Diag earlier in the day
until the Department of Public Safety
told them they were unable to continue
after 1 p.m. Saksewski said that the
electricity has been suspended during
three or four other LGBT and feminist
events on campus, as it was yesterday.
"This is too much of a coincidence.
We did not know that they strictly
enforced this regulation," Saksewski
DPS Lt. Robert Neumann said
groups are clearly made aware that
amplification or playing of instruments
is only allowed between 12 and I p.m.
"The reason for this rule is so that
academic classes are not disturbed,"
The Fair's final event last night on
the Diag featured a showcase of talent
including poetry readings and a drum
enjoyment in speaking to young people.'
Jackson's student-organized speech is
being co-sponsored by several groups,
including the Black Greek Association
and the Michigan Student Assembly.
Jackson is "very engaged in the topic
of affirmative action and activism on
campus," MSA president Trent
Thompson said. "It's important for peo-
ple to start caring again."

McDougal court battle nears finish
LITTLE ROCK - Susan McDougal's latest court battle with lawyers for inde-
pendent counsel Kenneth Starr neared a climax yesterday as prosecutors insisted
McDougal must "pay the consequences" for refusing to answer grand jury ques-
tions and McDougal's attorney compared Starr's tactics to Adolf Hitler's Third
The sometimes angry closing arguments capped a five-week trial in which
McDougal sought to make Starr's tactics the issue and prosecutors sought to fo
the jury's attention on McDougal's repeated defiance of court orders.
She is charged with criminal contempt of court and obstruction ofjustice for her
refusal to answer questions in Starr's long-running probe of Whitewater, the failed
1980s land deal in which McDougal and her then-husband were partners with Bill
Clinton and his wife.
McDougal listened quietly in U.S. District Court yesterday as a prosecutor
depicted her as a self-serving lawbreaker who withheld information about the
Clintons' involvement in the real estate venture because of her personal disdain for
Starr and his associates.
Noting that McDougal defied a federal judge's order in refusing to testify before
grand juries in 1996 and again in 1998, prosecutor Julie Myers told the trial jury:
"This is not Burger King. The defendant is not entitled to have it her way ... .
now she must pay the consequences.
China, Clinton urges
against new cold war
WASHINGTON - As China's pre-
mier arrived in Washington, President
Clinton urged U.S. politicians not to
start a new Cold War with China in the
run up to the 2000 election and sig-

ment that would pave the way for
Chinese membership in the World
But even as U.S. and Chinese nego-
tiators struggled to resolve last-
minute roadblocks to a trade deal
before Premier Zhu Rongji's formal
meetings at the White House today
the administration's China policy suf-
fered a blow as Senate Majority
Leader Trent Lott (R-Miss.)
announced opposition to Chinese
entry into the WTO.
"Letting China into the WTO at this
time shows how far this administra-
tion is willing to go in an effort to sal-
vage its failed policy of strategic part-
nership with China," Lott said in a

amnesty for assasins
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa
- This country's Truth and
Reconciliation Commission yesterday
rejected amnesty for the 1993 right-
wing killers of Communist Party chief
Chris Hani, who was emerging as a
potential successor to Nelson Mandela
as a national leader.
The committee ruled that the two
confessed assassins had failed to meet
the prerequisites of amnesty: full dis-
closure and political motivation for
The commission's investigative
phase into human rights violations
during the apartheid era ended last
year, but its amnesty committee con-
tinues to hear applications from the
perpetrators of atrocities.
The thrust of the commission's
work has been to attempt.to lay South
Africa's brutal, racist past to rest by
establishing the awful record without
To achieve this the commission has
offeredaamnesty only to those who
inake a full confession and prove
political motivation. It has not insisted
on contrition. Many of those found
guilty of atrocities have yet to apply.
The gunning down of Hani in
driveway of his home was one of the
most traumatic of murders investigat-
ed by the commission.
