Students honor slain peace keeper MSU ,

Michael (Gold. who is a member of the American
Movement for Israel, the groupthat organized last night's
event.
LSA junior Nicole Scaglione remembered her familv's
reaction to Rabin's death.
"When Rabin was shot, before he actually died, I was at
home with my parents and l remember the sadness, devasta-
tion, disappointment. We'd been following all the productivi-
tv of his work, and it was like it was all dissolved,"Scaglione
said.
The Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts stalled after Rabin's
death.
"The whole peace process is basically about bringing
peace to the Middle East and to appease all sides," LSA first-
ear Elan Emanuel said.
President Bill Clinton, Arafat and Israel's current
Prime Minister Ehud Barak met in Oslo on Tuesday to
attempt to settle the unresolved issues of the Oslo Peace
Accords.

The Oslo agreements were much more gradual, Barak has
put pressure on his government for a solution," said Gold,
adding that Barak has set a date in February to have all unre-
solved issues finalized.
"He is following in Rabin's dream to bring peace to that
warring part of the world," Gold said.
In memory of Rabin, the somber group on the Diag
sang the Hatikvah, Israel's national anthem, and recited
the Song For Peace, sung at the 1995 rally.
When Rabin died, he carried a copy of a poem in his
pocket. "Look up in hope not through gun sights. Sing a
song for love and not for war," is one stanza from the
song.
"We mustn't forgetYitzak Rabin --the man and his work."
said LSA first-year student David Shafmtan, an AMI organiz-
er of the event.
To remember Rabin's death, Israelis held a huge rally in
Israel at "Kikar Rabin," or Rabin's Square, the place where
the leader was killed.
"Even if people didn't agree with his political stance, he
pushed for something everyone could agree on - the pursuit
of peace" Shafman said.

also includes the MSU campus.
Raird said the legislation fails to
address an apparent connection
between increasing levels of educa-
tion and decreasing instances of
illegal and violent behavior.
"It seems really dumb to me to
prohibit someone who has offended
from an education," she said.
Rep. Liz Brater (D-Ann Arbor)
said her preliminary impression of
the hill is that it does not focus on
the primary causes of riots, such as
excessive drinking,.
'There are already criminal sanc-
tions in place for this behavior,"
Brater said. "This is sort of a feel-
good thing that wouldn't do a whole
lot of good."
Bennett said he received a favor-
able reaction this week when he
spoke about the proposal to a group
cf MSU students.
"They were embarrassed by what
had happened on their campus, and
they applauded this measure'fe said.
The legislation, which Betnett
expects to be signed into law in
some form, would take effect March
1, 2000. A ban for those sentenced
to prison for rioting would begin
after their release.
"I'm not out for revenge. I'm not
out to punish people," Bennett said.
"But when they create problems for
society, there needs to be a measure
for response."
According to a louse legislative
analysis, both the Associated
Students of MSU and the American
Civil Liberties Union oppose the
bill. The City of East Lansing offi-
cials testified before the criminal
law committee in support of the pro-
posal
OSCR
Continued from Page 1
"We are not a replication of the
criminal justice process," Goncalves
said.
Director of Career 'Planning and
Placement Simone Himbeault
Taylor, who chaired the Code
Implementation Review Committee,
said many steps were taken this
summer to prepare for the suggested
changes. Taylor said one recommen-
dation the review committee made
was to decrease the legal nature of
the University's internal discipli-
nary process.
To combat the problem, Taylor
said, additional positions were nec-
essarv to make the experience edu-
cational.
The office "takes a few people to
run it efficiently, but efficient isn't
the same as effective," Taylor said.
"A learning opportunity requires
monitoring and debriefing," she
added.
Tavlor said Provost Nancy Cantor
committed financial support to
acquire the additional staff mem-
bers.
While a data manager position
was put into place in October,
Taylor said other additions will not
be made until the director's position
is filled.
"There will be a hold on addition-
al hiring so that he or she has the
opportunity to build a team once
they get here," Taylor said.
Goncalves said although OSCR is
going through a transitional period
right now, he is determined to con-
tinue his focus on students.
"They need help and I have the
privilege of listening to them and
assisting them through the experi-
ence," he said.

tiating so that the entire increase is
used in one year.
Another concern regarding higher
education spending was a proposed
elimination of the 1 percent reduc-
tion in student loan origination fees
that were given to students last year,
Butts said. But as it stands right now
that issue has been resolved, he
added.
"There will not be any major
contentious issues" concerning
higher education, Brandt said,
adding that the most of the clncern
is over K-12 education.

Senate approves
banking mergers bill
WASHINGTON _ The Senate ves-
terday overwhelmingly approved a
sweeping law breaking down
Depression-era barriers between banks.
insurance companies and investment
firms.
The vote was 90-8. All but one of the
opponents was a Democrat.
President Clinton is ready to sign
the measure, despite warnings by
Democratic critics that it could lead
to price-gouging of consumers and
to financial conglomerates that are
simply too big and powerful. In
addition, consumer groups, liberal
lawmakers and others bitterly have
opposed the legislation on grounds it
would jeopardize consumers' finan-
cial privacy.
The measure will bring "the con-
centration of more and more econom-
ic power in the hands of fewer and
fewer people," liberal Sen. Paul
Wellstone (D-Minn.), said during
Senate debate.

New Jersey Nets adopt high school
NEWARK, N.J. - President Clinton sat in the Malcolm X Shabazz High
School library, his back to a shelf loaded with university catalogs, listening to 17
teenagers dream aloud of college and careers.
There was the aspiring surgeon who wants to go to Princeton, the wouldl
lawyer with her eye on Spelman C'ollege, the athlete who niav become a chef
if the pro tbotball thing doesn't work out.
These students were already assured of scholarships upon completing a sepa-
rate Project Grad program, which helps at-risk teenagers improve theii grades
and steers them toward college. And yesterday, the New Jersey Nets adopted
Shabazz High as part of a S2.5 million commitment to inner cities from the
National Basketball Association, National Football League and Major League
Baseball.
Clinton challenged other teams and sports to follow the lead.
He gestured at Nets players alongside him onstage, saving, "There are a lot of
guys this tall that aren't playing basketball. They got a chance, and they made the
most out of it. And that's what we ought to offer to every child."
In addition, several major corporations committed about S4 million in
response to Clinton's "New Markets" initiative---a plan to ensure that the nation's
less-well-off rural and urban areas share in the booming economy.

Crowds mark Iran
hostage anniversary
TEHRAN, Iran - Chanting invec-
tives against the United States and
burning Uncle Sam's effigy a hundred
times, more than 10,000 students ral-
lied outside the former U.S. Embassy
yesterday to mark the 20th anniversary
of its seizure by Islamic militants.
But the demonstration was a far cry
from rallies held in previous years,
when hundreds of thousands gathered
to celebrate the takeover of the mission
in 'Tehran.
The low turnout reflects a dimin-
ishing enthusiasm for the militant
fervor that drove the students to
storm the embassy on Nov. 4, 1979,
and hold 52 Americans hostage for
444 days. It is also another clear
sign of the struggle for control of
Iran's future between hard-line cler-
ics and reformist President
Mohammad Khatami.
On Wednesday, about 500 Khatami
supporters held their own rally, where

they demanded a new foreign policy,
chanting: "In policy arid diplomacy, we
will deal with the united States with
rationality."
Countering the reformers, hard-linw
crs yesterday velled: "We will always
consider America as our enemy. We
condemn those who talk in favor of
dialogue with America."
Indian officials burn
bodies, aid begins
PARADWIP, India --Officials set4
to hundreds of bodies stacked on the
beach yesterday, hoping to stave off dis-
ease in eastern India, where the first sig-
nificant aid was finally beginning to
arrive a week after a devastating storm.
Among the dead were migrant labor-
ers who had fled crippling poverty in
their villages to seek jobs in the port city
of Paradwip. The huge shantytown where
they lived, located dangerously close to
the sea, was wiped out by giant wav

New cancer drug
reaches tral stage
Doctors at two major U.S. cancer
centers have begun the first phase of a
clinical trial ultimately aimed at discov-
ering whether a tumor-shrinking dre
can destroy cancers by cutting off th
blood supply.
"We're cautiously optimistic that the
drug will have activity, but at this point
no one really knows what will happen:
said James Pluda, a senior scientist at
the National Cancer Institute, which
oversees experimental cancer-drug tri-
als.
The first of the patients have been
receiving infusions of the drug for y
more than two weeks. W
