APPLICANTS

"Bagley has been making this argu-
ment for five years now, and it's a bro-
ken record,' Connerly said.
Connerly said UC's increased par-
ticipation in California's school system
will eventually "correct an inadequate
K-12 system."
Student Regent Michelle Pannor
said she would support Bagley's idea if
it reaches the regents' table.
"I think at this point in time we still
need affirmative action," Pannor said.
UCLA Director of Undergraduate

Admissions Rae Lee Siporin said the
UC system can expect a continued rise
in Hispanic applicants because of an
increased Hispanic population in Cali-
fornia. While several University offi-
cials attributed the increase of Hispanic
applicants to an expanding minority
population in California, some did not
subscribe to that theory.
University at California at Berkeley
student Gloria Diaz said student vol-
unteers at the RAZA Recruitment and
Retention Center have traveled this
past year to 35 high schools to encour-
age, tutor and recruit fellow Hispanic
students.

HANDBOOK

allowed to enter.
But the AAPD does not see these
signs as a threat to enforcing the law.
"I think officers who respond to
calls know the law and know they
aren't going to enter without the con-
sent of the owner" Sgt. Lyle Sartori
said.
"Even if (owners) post a sign, it's
not going to change the way we do
business," he said.
Sartori also warned students to be
careful because laws differ from state
to state.
"Unfortunately each state has dif-
ferent laws and cities have different
ordinances, he said.
While the advice given in the
handbook may not be applicable in a
students' hometown, the handbook
does provide uniform information
about how to throw safe and legal
parties.
"I am excited about the (hand-
book) and most intrigued by the sug-
gested door hangings and curious to
see how many folks will use them,"
Roumel said.

The signs also include instructions
on how to speak to police officers.
"I think it's great. People need to
know what they can and can't say to
the cops and what will get you in
trouble," LSA senior Rebecca Brit-
ton said.
But Roumel stresses that the hand-
book does not condone illegal actions
by students.
"In no way are we condoning
(breaking laws), but we believe con-
stitutional safeguards are important,"
he said.
Jerry Mangona, vice president for
external relations for the Interfrater-
nity Council, said that the handbook
might also apply to fraternity and
sorority parties as well as individual
house parties.
"I would assume any individual
present at a fraternity party would be
afforded the same rights as would a
guest at any other party. The Office
of Greek Life finds it in the best
interest of our chapters that they
cooperate fully with any authorities,"
Mangona said.

Federal Reserve raises short-term rates
WASHINGTON - The Federal Reserve raised key short-term rates one-quarter
of a percentage point yesterday to ward off inflationary pressures in a roaring U.S.
economy, and coupled the action with warnings that suggest more hikes are on the
way.
The Fed's policy-making Open Market Committee nudged up the federal funds
rate, which banks charge each other for short-term loans, from 5.5 percent to 5.74
percent, its highest level in more than four years.
It was the fourth such increase since June, when the central bank began its efforts
to slow the economy.
In the wake of the Fed decision, Bank of America, the nation's biggest bank, and
other major financial institutions announced they would raise their regular lending
rates in a move assuring that millions of consumers and businesses will feel the
effects of higher interest.
But will the pinch will be great enough to convince them to throttle back on
their spending so that the economy can cool? On this, analysts seemed to agree:
"It won't do a great deal," said Sung Won Sohn, chief economist of Wells Fargo &
Co. in Minneapolis.
Analysts said the Fed's strategy is to continue raising rates in modest increments*
until the economy finally slows. "It's going to be Chinese water torture," said Mer-
rill Lynch & Co.'s chief economist, Bruce Steinberg.

WRC
Continued from Page1A
Students Organizing for Labor and
Economic Equality has been campaign-
ing for the University to join the WRC.
Last March, 30 SOLE members
stormed and occupied Bollinger's office
for 51 hours. During the demonstration,
Bollinger released the University's
labor standards for its licensed apparel
manufacturers. Since the WRC was ini-
tially released in October, SOLE has
made the University's adoption of the
code a top priority.
SOLE has criticized the committee
studying the WRC, contending the

Pixie Anne Pennwright
Spokescritic - Heartbreaker e Media Legend

group has taken too much time to con-
sider the code. On Jan. 18, SOLE mem-
bers stormed an open forum hosted by
the University's advisory committee,
demanding immediate action.
Although SOLE's deadline for
Bollinger's decision on the WRC
expired, no official decision came from
the office of the president, due to
Bollinger's absence from campus so he
could survey flood damage to his Ver-
mont residence. Despite this setback,
SOLE members remain optimistic that
Bollinger will announce his decision'
soon and are "hopeful that U of M will
make a commitment to the WRC," said
SOLE member Peter Romer-Friedman,
an RC junior.
Fellow SOLE member and LSA
junior Lee Palmer added that early par-
ticipation in the WRC is a great opportu-
nity for the University "to be a leader" in
the fight for sweatshop code regulation.
But the WRC is not without critics.
Advisory committee members and
Bollinger himself have said the existing
document is too vague.
Currently only five other schools
have endorsed the WRC - Brown
University, Haverford College, Loylola
College, Bard College, and the Univer-
sity of New Orleans.
Because these schools cannot match
the University in terms of apparel
licensing clout, SOLE members main-
tain that the University's participation is
essential to the WRC's success and it's
"vagueness" is in fact an asset.
"The WRC offers full autonomy over
how to sanction licensees and improve
conditions for workers." Romer-Fried-
man said.

justice Department
faults CIA in report
WASHINGTON - The CIA
should have asked the Justice Depart-
ment to open a criminal investigation
as soon as it discovered in December
1996 that former CIA Director John
Deutch had kept highly classified
information on his home computers,
according to a classified report by the
CIA's inspector general.
The report also faults former CIA
General Counsel Michael O'Neill and
former Executive Director Nora
Slatkin for delaying an internal probe
of Deutch's security breach. And it
says CIA Director George Tenet
"should have involved himself more
forcefully to ensure a proper resolu-
tion of this matter."
But the report concludes that nei-
ther Tenet nor any of his top aides vio-
lated the law, despite a series of
internal delays that kept the CIA's
inspector general from referring the
case to the Justice Department for
criminal review for more than a year,
until February 1998.

The Justice Department declined to
prosecute Deutch last April and
turned the matter back over to Tenet,
who stripped Deutch of his security
clearances in August, a stiff rebuke
for a former top official but nothing
like the way the government treatedO
former Los Alamos physicist Wen Ho
Lee.
Army investigates
Korean War killings
WASHINGTON - The Army has
begun interviewing Korean War veter-
ans and has not ruled out criminal
prosecutions as a result of its investi-
gation of the alleged mass killing of
South Korean civilians at No Gun Ri;@
Army Secretary Louis Caldera said
yesterday.
Likening the situation to war crines
trials following World War II, Caldera
told the Associated Press, "We don't
want to set a double standard." He
added, however, that it is too early to
conclude that any actions by Ameri-
can troops at No Gun Ri at the outset
of the Korean War rose to the level of
war crimes.

Russians closer to
taking Grozny
MOSCOW - Grozny, the war-rav-
aged capital of separatist Chechnya,
appeared to be in the hands of advanc-
ing federal forces yesterday as Russian
Defense Minister Igor Sergeyev
claimed "an irreversible breakthrough"
in the six-month war.
Sergeyev asserted that Russian forces
had killed 586 rebel fighters as they
attempted to force their way through
Russian troops encircling the city. The
rebels said thousands of Islamic sepa-
ratists who had succeeded in holding
off the Russians for months had aban-
doned the city.
"The operation of wiping out the
bandit formations in Grozny has been
carried out brilliantly," said Sergeyev,
Russia's top military official.
Russian authorities stopped short of
claiming control of Grozny, reporting
that there was still fighting in some parts
of the city. The Chechen rebels,
through their Internet Website,
http://w''w kavkaz.og, contended that

the Russians were fighting only shadows.
"The aggressors continue to imitate
combat activities in the town," the
Website said. "Various quarters are
being bombed by the Russian air force@
Both sides have been known to mis-
represent facts during the fierce conflict,
in particular minimizing their own
casualties and exaggerating the losses
of their foes.
Israelis argue about,
nuclear weaponss
JERUSALEM - Another taboo wa
shattered in Israel yesterday, and quite
noisily at that, when the parliament held
its first-ever public debate on something
that is rarely admitted to exist: Israel's
top-secret nuclear arsenal.
The issue was forced onto the agenda
by an Arab Israeli member of parlia-
ment, who was promptly attacked for
his efforts. The session was aired live
on television and marked another step
in public discussion of the open secrets
surrounding Israel's nuclear capability.,
