anniversar
Berlin Wall'Is fall
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Clinton, celebrating
the fall of the Berlin Wall a decade ago, said yesterday that
Republicans are out of step with most Americans who want
the United States to keep a major role in world affairs
rather than take a "go it alone" approach.
"Most of all," the president said, "we need to maintain
the will to lead, to provide the kind of American leadership
that for 50 years has brought friends and allies to our sides
while moving mountains around the world:"
Clinton's remarks, in a speech at Georgetown University,
tarpened a foreign policy debate roiled by the Senate's
rejection of a landmark nuclear test-ban treaty. The
Republican-engineered defeat was a major embarrassment
for Clinton and highlighted policy disputes about African
debt relief, payment of $1.8 billion in late dues to the United
Nations and money to dismantle Russia's nuclear arsenal.
The president's speech coincided with today's anniver-
sary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the East-West barrier of
barbed wire and cinder blocks guarded by machine guns, a
floodlit mine field and German shepherd guard dogs.
Clinton appeared on stage with Czech Prime Minister
@ilos Zeman and Slovak Republic Prime Minister Mikulas
Dzurinda, who expressed appreciation for the United
States' role in freeing Eastern Europe from the grip of
communism.
"Thank you, America," Zeman said.
Clinton credited his predecessors - Republicans and

CODE

print next year there will not be overlap-
ping information. Such alignment avoids
policy duplication and allows housing to
retain its right to have guidelines separate
from those affecting the entire University
community, Taylor said.
"Candles not being allowed in resi-
dence halls rooms is not something that
is critical to the University as a whole,
but is very critical in a housing environ-
ment," Taylor said.
Taylor said she anticipates that there
will be future alignment of the Code with
other conduct guidelines such as the
honor codes of Academic Units.
Interim Vice President for Student
Affairs E. Royster Harper said aligning
the Code with Housing's conduct guide-
lines is beneficial.
"It is more streamlined and not as
cumbersome for students," Harper said.
SVORAY
Continued from Page 1

In addition to tailoring the Code to pre-
ent overlap, there have also been efforts
to assist students involved in Code
processes.
MSA Student Rights Commission
Chair Abe Rafi is organizing a group of
student ad isers to assist both the victims
and aleged perpetrators throughout the
Code process if they so choose.
Rafi, an LSA senior, said the opportu-
nity to form a Student Adviser Corps has
been around since 1996 but is something
that past students have "dropped the ball
on."
Rafi said the group of students, select-
ed through an application process by
MSA, will be trained using scenarios and
hypothetical situations they may
encounter as advisers.
"The Code process is confusing," Rafi
said. "Peer advisers will tell students
what sort of things they should have in
mind."
Students may have unique advice to

offer students involved in the process,
Rafi said. He said student advisers could
offer more straightforward advice to stu-
dents going through the process.
Although not set to be completed for
two more years, 0SCR plans to move out
of the Fleming Administration Building
and into a more accessible location for
students.
"We want a more student friendly
place thmn Fleming." Harper said.
H arper said students who have
appealed Code decisions have expressed
that the appeal doesn't feel fair because
Harper's office is close to OSCR.
"We want to make sure enough dis-
tance that the appeal feels like a bona fide
appeal," Harper said.
Taylor said University Provost Nancy
Cantor approved a budget for OSCR that
provided for a continued educational
thrust, additional staff members and a
commitment to finding new office loca-
tion although no options exist yet.

APHOT
President Clinton celebrates the 10-year anniversary of
the fall of the Berlin wall in a speech at Georgetown
University yesterday.
Democrats alike - for meeting the challenge and
embraced the once controversial verbal attack of former
President Ronald Reagan against the Kremlin.
"It took conviction - the conviction of President
Reagan, who said so plainly what many people on the other
side of the wall had trouble understanding, that the Soviet
empire was evil and the wall should be torn down; the con-
viction of President Carter, who put us on the side of dissi-
dents and kept them alive to fight another day."
Clinton said most Americans share his belief that the
United States should continue to use its influence in prob-
lems ranging from China to Chechnya, promoting peace
and prosperity around the world.

German. Unaware of the Israeli's background, the German
invited Svoray to a gathering in Frankfurt. Svoray said what
came next was haunting.
Svoray was introduced to more than 30 men wearing
Nazi uniforms. Watching the gang rape and murder of a
8-year-old girl on film - the men masturbated and
cheered.
"I was more shattered as a human being than (as) a Jew,"
Svoray said.
Svoray said the men's reaction to the rape and murder left
him in a state of disbelief and despair. He said at this point,
he wanted to prove a "connection between old Nazis and the
new Nazis," adding that the message is the same no matter
the time period.
With the help of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los
Angeles, Svoray assumed the identity of a fictional right-
wing magazine editor in the United States. Svoray said he
was easily embraced by hate groups throughout Germany and
the United States because "everyone wanted to talk about
themselves"
Svoray said his experiences showed him the beliefs of
hatred were not limited to hooligans and drunkards but
included "bankers, members of the police, professors in uni-
versities and mayors of little towns." He said a 1995 party
commemorating Hitler's birthday brought nearly 10,000 cel-
ebrants.
While spending more than I 1 months risking his life to

learn about the depth of the current Nazi movement, Svoray
revealed his findings to U.S. government following a 1995
New York City press conference.
Svoray said his efforts did not bring forth concrete action
by the German government.
"Not one Nazi was interrogated ... not one Nazi spent even
an hour in jail," Svoray said.
Svoray told the crowd that the solution to hatred is not to
count the number of people expressing such views.
"It's about how many good people stand up:' Svoray said.
He echoed the need for action in the conclusion of his
speech. "We can't be silent -- otherwise history will repeat
itself," Svoray said.
The audience responded to Svoray's speech with a one-
minute standing ovation.
Many in attendance said Svoray's speech moved them
greatly.
"I thought his stories ... were absolutely horrific, but also
I'm extremely shocked they didn't do anything to curb these
hate groups," LSA junior Megan Honan said.
Honan said Svoray's speech is important for today's soci-
ety.
"I think it can make us aware of things that happen right
under our noses," Honan said.
The event was co-sponsored by Conference on the
Holocaust committee, Michigan Student Assembly and the
LSA Student Government.
"I thought he was a very powerful speaker," LSA junior
and committee member Ross Kirchner said. "It was better
than I expected."

MSA
Continued from Page 1
Ot or wrong - that MSA is a white
boys' club. We need to work to prove
that's not true ,.. If we don't do that
work, then we're not doing our job. We
need to make a genuine commitment to
outreach," he said.
The Communications Committee

also is sending MSA officers, specifi-
cally Elias and Vice President Andy
Coulouris, to various student group
meetings, including Dance Marathon,
the Panhellenic Association and
Mentality, a group that educates on
mental illnesses. Elias is to attend
Environmental Action's meeting tomor-
row.
EnAct Facilitator and SNRE

junior Brianne Haven said MSA out-
reach is a step in the right direction.
"I think it's cool that they're trying
to go to different student groups,"
she said.
Haven said having assembly repre-
sentation at the organization's meeting
provides EnAct with the opportunity to
get Elias' insight and to publicize
EnAct activities.

SWEATSHOP
Continued from Page 1
"The University has only accepted a
code of conduct, which is only a piece of
paper. Now it must implement the poli-
cies that it has created."
But not all of the panelists agree with
the sentiments of Trab-Werner and
Romer-Friedman. Bama Athreya, direc-
tor of Asia Programs for the International
Labor Rights Fund, said the University
should join the WRC and FLA.
Win Swinson of KPMG, an account-
ing firm, indicated that his firm has been
reluctant to do sweatshop monitoring
because it is a process that has been
"highly discretionary," he said.

But Jeff Ballinger, director of Press
For Change, who works on exposing
Nike factory conditions in Indonesia,
said he supports the WRC. He said
that Nike's employees do not enjoy
the benefits of seniority and indicat-
ed that a 10-year factory worker has
the same income as a first-day work-
er.
"Workers are mistreated, we have to
defend them. This is the next human
rights issue of the next decade," Ballinger
said.
Ballinger also alleges that when he
tried to investigate Nike's factories in
Indonesia, a worker rushed up to him
and said, "Hey you can't be here
unless you have Nike's permission"

Ballinger noted that companies such
as Nike have misreported workers'
wages. He said he found that "1,939
of the 2,300 Nike shoe workers were
earning $35 to $42 per month," or
about $1.28 a day.
But'Nike said 75 percent of its shoe
workers earn an average of $56 per
month, approximately $1.86 per day.
Ballinger said he found that only 1 per-
cent of the workers were making $1.86
per day or more.
Trab-Werner indicated that it is diffi-
cult to police the entire industry and
declare an entire company as "sweat-free.
Even if you have a good monitoring
process for sweatshops, it's only good for
the week you're there"
