raise money for the exhibit, she said.
"It catapults us into a higher profile so that we
would be in the radar for donations, both from indi-
viduals and corporations," Dixon said.
Steward said the exhibit is designed to appeal to
many members of the University community.
Steward said the theme may even carry over to
other aspects of the University.
"We're hoping the subject of winter 2002 theme
semester will coincide with that of our exhibit," he

Dixon said the exhibit will focus on "how pow-
erful women or women who are empowered are
depicted in visual images."
Using depictions of historical, biblical and myth-
ical women, the exhibit's themes will explore how
power gets projected and how female identity is
"We hope that students and the community will
be able to make links between the way women con-
trol and fashion their own images today and the way
women did that in the past," Dixon said.

Time Warner may merge with Emi
NEW YORK - Time Warner, which only two weeks ago announced a stunning
$145 billion merger with America Online, plans to shake up the music iudtrtiy
through a $20 billion merger with EMI Records, home of the Beatles and the Rolling
Stones, a source familiar with the deal said yesterday.
The two companies will formally announce the deal in London today, the sour*
who spoke on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press.
London-based EMI confirmed yesterday that it is in the final stages of negotiations
and said an announcement is forthcoming. Time Warner in New York also acknowl-
edged the talks, but spokesperson Edward Adler said, "No deal has been signed."
The deal, if it is approved by regulators, would likely be a boost for music sales via
the Internet. Both Warner and EMI have been testing ways to let customers digitally
download music via their computers. The new company would have a 'very captive
audience with America Online's 20 million subscribers.
The merged company, to be called Warner EMI Music, would be the second-largest
music company with more than $8 billion in annual sales. Only Seagram's Universal
Music would be bigger.
EMI brings to the deal the Virgin, Priority and Capitol record labels; Time Warn
contributes its Atlantic, Elektra and Warner Brothers labels.
The merger is expected to close in about a year.

nization counts' said Iowa Democratic
Party Communications Director
Shannon Tesdahl.
The system allows the candidates to
get in touch with the voters, Tesdahl said.
Other Republican candidates have
fallen significantly behind both Bush
and Forbes in the polls, but that has not
halted their campaign efforts.
McCain is 12 points behind Forbes,
according to The Des Moines Register
In November, McCain announced that
he would not be setting up an organized
campaign office in Iowa because of
financial restraints.
Forbes, who is Bush's main opponent
in Iowa, is hoping that a good showing in
Iowa will propel his campaign to gather
support next week in New Hampshire.
said Kendrick Ashton, deputy press sec-
retary for Forbes' lowa campaign.
Despite Gore's leading Democratic
status in Iowa, he has continued to cam-
paign in the state to maintain his support.
"We're treating everyday like we are

five points behind," said Julie Green, a
Gore 2000 volunteer.
"A caucus system is far more reward-
ing for someone who has institutional
organization," said Tony Wyche, deputy
press secretary for Bradley's Iowa cam-
paign, criticizing the caucus system in
relation to the primary system where
voters cast their ballot at a poll.
Volunteers have been strong in num-
bers, but Bradley still doesn't have the
support that he needs to win Iowa,
Wyche said.
Other Republican candidates have
been campaigning to gather more sup-
port for today's caucuses.
During the weekend, Bauer participat-
ed in a pro-life rally and visited the grave-
yard for a memorial in honor of an infant
that was found in a ditch, said Jonathan
Coors, a Bauer campaign volunteer.
Keyes is also participating in several
rallies and attended church yesterday.
More than 4,000 volunteers have joined
Keyes' lowa campaign, said Connie
Hair, press secretary for Bauer's Iowa
How Keyes will do in today's caucus-
es "is all in God's hands," Hair said.

ed with the other participants.
Engineering senior Neal Cholhski
said he was pleased with the fact that
this year, more students from different
parts of the country were able to con-
tribute to the diversity of each cluster
"This by far is the best year. It's
truly become an out-of-state,
Midwestern conference," Cholkshi
said, adding that this year's event was
the group's first step in broadening the
national scope of the conference.
Students participated in many
events, including a traditional Bhangra
dance competition Friday night at the
Michigan Theater.
After different clusters went to area
restaurants, participants were able to
choose from a variety of 20 workshops
to attend - each reinforcing the sym-
posium's theme by celebrating differ-
ent topics and issues of the past, pre-
sent, and future of Indian culture.
Manick Sorcar, an engineer and
children's book author, hosted a work-
shop titled "Indian Culture: Will Our
Children Know?"
Sorcar reminded participants how
difficult it can be to preserve rich tra-
ditional heritage in the vastly different'
contemporary American culture.
After immigrating to the United
States in the 1970s, Sorcar was deter-
mined to find a way to teach his chil-
dren about the philosophy and life in

"One option was to brainwash
them," Sorear said jokingly. "But we
decided that instead we should try to
attract them in some way."
Sorcar captivated his children's
attention by using his artistic abilities
to create cartoons, fairy tales and
songs that celebrate Indian culture.
Eventually, all of these elements
were combined when Sorcar put them
into an animated form and an honor
from the International Film Festival.
"It was a huge source of information
for my kids," Sorcar said.
The symposium concluded Saturday
with a formal dinner party at the Best
Western hotel on Jackson Avenue.
All 415 students at the party dressed
in formal Indian attire and ate an
authentic Indian meal with traditional
music playing in the background.
Most students attending the confer-
ence from other colleges and universi-
ties, including the University of
California at Los Angeles, the
University of Notre Dame and the
Georgia Institute of Technology,
returned to their respective campuses
"I think it's a great place for Indians
to get together and share their culture.
They've done a really good job to pro-
mote interaction," Georgia Tech stu-
dent Natasha Joglekar said.
"We flew far away for this. We had
high expectations," UCLA student
Babah Sidhu said. "It was a really
good idea."

Clinton plans $250M
tax cut in budget
WASHINGTON - President
Clinton's last budget will be crammed
with election-year proposals to distrib-
ute federal largesse to as many
Americans as possible.
He is asking Congress for billions of
dollars to expand health care coverage
for the uninsured, offer tax breaks to
the middle class and help the elderly
pay drug bills.
Surprise is about the only thing the
budget will lack when it is formally
released Feb. 7, thanks to a stream of
announcements from the White House
in recent weeks.
The president will hit highlights of
his spending initiatives in his State of
the Union address Thursday night
before a joint session of Congress. The
speech also will contain Clinton's wish
list of legislation he wants enacted in
his last year in office.
In the budget area, Clinton is expect-
ed to provide more details on his tax-
cut proposals. The administration

already has said it will seek roughly the
same amount in tax cuts - about $250
billion over 10 years-as Clinton pro-
posed last year.
But presidential aides say more tax
relief is intended for the working poo
and families struggling to pay fora W
lege and for long-term care for elderly

Soldiers find body
of Russian general
MOSCOW -- Russian forces in
Chechnya said they had found and
retrieved the body of a top general from
the rubble of a collapsed building yester-
day, six days after he went missing dur-
ing fierce street battles in the capital of
the rebel republic.
The disappearance of Gen. Mikhail
Malofeyev last Tuesday and the military
command's inability to confirm whether
he was dead or captured had become a
vivid illustration of how Russia has lost
the upper hand in its war to regain con-
trol of the separatist territory.
In recent days, fighting has intensified
throughout the capital, Grozny, as
Russians and Chechens have battled
block by block and building by building.
Each side has repeatedly claimed control
of various districts or sites, and the con-
tradictory reports have created strong
suspicions that neither side is making
significant gains or telling the truth.
Although the Russians continue to

rely heavily on their superior firepower
- using aerial bombardments and long-
range artillery - they are increasingly
being drawn into the kind of close*M
bloody street combat that they fear and a
which the Chechens excel.
