Clinton looks to Oslo for peace legacy

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Clinton hopes
his quick trip to Oslo, Norway, could begin a final
push toward earning a place in history as an honored
peacemaker.
Clinton has picked an agreement between Israel and
the Arabs as his top foreign policy priority. It also
could be his best chance for a shining legacy.
Israel and the Palestinians have given themselves
until September to conclude an overall settlement. On
Friday they decided to get started Nov. 7.
That schedule coincides with the winding down of
Clinton's second term. He has nearly 15 months left in
office, time enough for the president to play the role
of prodder or dealmaker.
At this point, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud

Barak and Palesinian leader Yasser Arafat are
willing to try on their own. But if they get hung
up on the tough issues, Clinton is just a telephone
call away.
"We will be central to the peace process not only
because the parties want us to be, but because it is a
strategic interest of the United States," Sandy Berger,
Clinton's national security adviser, said in a recent
speech. Clinton is ready after the rigorous training
exercise in last year's successful West Bank diploma-
cy in rural Maryland.
At the beginning, in 1993, Clinton focused on
domestic issues such as the economy and health care,
and was slow to get to foreign policy.
When he did concentrate on the outside world,

the most pressing matters were conflict in the
Balkans, the search for illegal weapons in Iraq
and the need to set a course for dealing with
Russia and China. He also made some bold
strokes to settle the Northern Ireland problem. An
agreement he nurtured, while tenuous, essentially
is holding.
At this point, though, with the Monica Lewinskv
scandal receding and peace prospects in the Middle
East more promising than ever, Clinton has his sights
on an overall settlement between Israel and the Arabs
as a final act.
He was flying to Oslo yesterday with limited expec-
tations on what will be a brief fling at Middle East
diplomacy.

AROUND THE NATION
Airborne laser, future role in defense
SEATTLE - Across the street from a museum depicting the Wright brothers'
historic flights at Kitty Hawk, N.C., nearly 100 years ago, a new breed of aviation
pioneer is chasing a 21st Century dream: an airplane armed with speed-of-light
weaponry that can destroy enemy missiles in flight.
The airborne laser is a little known but potentially important part of a fu
defense against missile attack. The work being done at Boeing Co.'s developn
center is part of an effort to leap ahead of the traditional approach to missile defense.
Critics and doubters say it may be an expensive flop like many other attempted
innovations in missile defense during the past two decades.
The Clinton administration is developing two kinds of missile defense systems,
both possibly using laser weapons:
- Relying on the airborne laser to help provide protection against missile attack
on U.S. and allied troops abroad.
- Protecting the U.S. homeland, first by shooting down missiles with othermis-
siles and later, perhaps, with laser weapons orbiting in outer space.
Air Force Gen. Michael Ryan sees a bright future for airborne lasers.
"We think we've got all the physics about right," he said recently. "Now we
to see if we can engineer it onto the (airplane) and shoot it. That's the next test.
could be a revolutionary kind of capability."

TELEMARKET
Continued from Page 1A
"I've never ever received this type of
response,' he said.
With his legislation still early in the
drafting stage, Goschka said he also is
considering including provisions requir-
ing telemarketers' phone numbers to
appear on Caller ID devices and allowing
Michigan residents to put their names on
a list that would prohibit any unsolicited
calls to their homes.
According to the Michigan Public
Service Commission, it is illegal for tele-
marketers to call people who have asked

to be added to the company's "do not
call" list for the next 10 years, but non-
profit organizations are not required to
maintain such lists.
Telemarketers also are required by law
to announce the company's name and
what they are selling at the beginning of
a call and are prohibited from tying up a
phone line with autodialed or prerecord-
ed messages.
To reduce telemarketing calls, the
MPSC recommends contacting the
Consumer Protection Division of the
Michigan Attorney General's Office or the
Federal Communications Commission's
Consumer Complaints department.

MIRT

ferences were the most interesting and
valuable parts of the program.
"I liked having the opportunity to see
several other countries," said Stacie
Smith, a second-year public health stu-
dent. "It expanded the world for me."
Barker studied obesity among adolescent
boys in Santiago, Chile. "Some of the boys
acted strangely toward me partly because I
was a girl and partly because I was African-
American," said Barker. "There are virtual-
ly no people of color in Chile."
LSA senior Kourtney Cockrell said

about her research in South Africa, "It
made you realize the disproportion
between South Africa and America.
"In America you're black and then
you're an American - in South Africa
you're an American and then you're
black;' she said.
Ixsy Ramirez, an LSA senior, said she
participated in MIRT to increase research
on Latino/a issues. "When I was doing
journal readings before I left, I couldn't
find articles that related to Latino fami-
lies and Latino cultures," said Ramirez,
who researched maternal depression and
its relationship to child rearing in Chile.
The NIH grant money will support
about 16 students' research each year,
Restrick said. The Center for Human
Growth and Development initially
received $400,000 annually, but Restrick
said she feels that decreased funding is
beneficial because an excess of students
in the program can be difficult to manage.

Halloween bash ends
in deadly shootout
MUNCIE, Ind. - A group of men
who were turned away from a college
Halloween party early yesterday
opened fire on the small house, killing
one man and wounding five others.
About 100 people had packed into
the home after a Ball State University
fraternity party. About 4 a.m., a car
pulled into an alley behind the house
and began firing into the home, said
Marlon Glass, 31, who was at the party.
The house, in a student neighbor-
hood near campus, was riddled with
bullet holes, and a trail of shell cas-
ings still led from the back door to
the alley yesterday afternoon. The
windows of some of the half-dozen
cars parked behind the house had
been shot out.
Police and witnesses said at least two
people had fired as many as 40 rounds
from outside, and investigators were
looking in to whether shots were fired
inside the house as well.
Julian Brown, 28, a former Ball State

student from Gary, Ind., was foind
dead in the kitchen, Muncie police
Chief Joe Winkle said.
Two people were in fair condition
yesterday at Ball Memorial Hospital
and two were treated and released, a
hospital spokesperson said. One pe
was treated at the scene.

"What a Great Experience!"

54 killed in fire in
an illegal beer hall
TOKYO - At least 54 South
Koreans, mainly high school students,
were killed and 75 others were injured
Saturday in a fire that trapped more
than 100 people inside a cramped, ille-
gal beer hall in the port city of Inchon,
30 miles west of Seoul.
Authorities said 97 of the 129 known
victims were under the age of 18, the
legal drinking age in Korea, and the
youngest person killed in the blaze was
just 13.
Many of the teenagers died from
inhaling smoke and toxic fumes in a
second-floor beer hall and a third-floor
billiard room in a building that had
blocked windows, narrow corridors,
only one small exit, and no sprinklers,
officials and witnesses said yesterday.
Police arrested four workers for alleged
safety violations and were reportedly
searching for the owner of the beer hall,
which was a popular teen hangout
known as a place where underage rev-

clers could buy alcoholic drinks.
Eight days before the inferno, police
had ordered the beer hall to .be shut
down for doing business without a
license, and a spot check by 101
authorities on Wednesday found e
establishment was closed, Lee- Se
Young, chief of the city's Jung Ju dis-
trict, said yesterday.
Mistakes possible in
Chechnya bombings
MOSCOW - Prime Minister
Vladimir Putin acknowledged yestey
there "might have been some mistakes"
during Russia's relentless bombing"of
Chechnya, but dismissed the nofion that
Russian forces deliberately target civilians.
His remarks marked the first time a
top Russian official had responded
with anything but a flat "no" toerepotts
of indiscriminate bombing, rocketitngB
and shelling during the monthlong
assault on separatist guerrillas.
