, ,°Leddington said that, in addition
WiSpreme Court justices, the next
:~sadent will appoint the director
of tho FBI. involved in violence
against Abortion Clinics, and the
Food and Drug Administration,
wh-ich recently approved RU-480,
fhe abortion pill.
' A director of the FBI who's against
~ortion might not put as much. effort
into protecting abortion clinics," she
Waddington said she supports the
abortion pill. She said the decision to

approve the pill, which has been legal
in Europe for several years, wvas long
overdue. "If you go to Europe, if you
go to China, this isn't even an issue."
Detailing her involvement in the
Roe v Wavle case and her later work
with President Jimmy Carter from
1979-198 1, Waddington spoke about
the importance of her case and its later
implications in other trials, including
the recent case of Gar-hai-t r1 Nebraska
last July, in which the state Supreme
Court banned partial birth abortions.
"The wording of that case was so
broad and so vague, that in a 5-4 deci-
sion, the court said No, you have
gone too far," she said.

Second-year law student Tracey
Glover said she agrees that the terms
of partial birth abortions are misrepre-
"The term is a bogus one,' Glover, a
co-chairperson of Law Students for
Reproductive Choice, said. "It refers to
a procedur and not to a particular
time in the pregnancy."
The lecture was chiefly sponsored
by Medical Students for Choice and
the Women's Law Student Associa-
tion, with support from Planned Par-
enthood, Law Students for
Reproductive Choice, the Women's
Health Project and the Institute for
Research on Women and Gender.

Fighting calms in Gaza, West
Bank; Clinton urges talks

JERUSALEM (AP) --- Israeli and Palestinian troop comn-
manders met at U.S. insistence yesterday to try to pave the
way for a truce, and relative calmh prevailed in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip: No one was killed in clashes for the first time
in a week despite sporadic exchanges of gunfire.
Israel said that if there were no new outbreaks of violence,
it could withdraw troops from friction points and then look
into ways of resuming peace talks. However, army officials
were skeptical a cease-fire would hold for long.
President Clinton has raised the possibility of holding sepa-
rate meetings in Washington with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud
Barak and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat to assess prospects
for returning to negotiations.
The Israeli troop commanders of the West Bank and Gaza

Strip held the meetings with their Palestinian Counterparts
yesterday in the presence of U.S. security officials. The >il
was try to implement the cease-fire brokered last wk\ c b
Clinton. Both sides have accused each other of bre.A n
promises made to the president.
Israel has said the Palestinian Authority has done little to
quell shooting attacks on Israeli positions. The Palestinians
have complained that Israel has not lifted its security closure
of the Palestinian areas and withdrawn troops from trouble
In all, 128 people, the vast majority Palestinians,
have been killed in four weeks of Israeli -Palestinian
fighting. But yesterday saw only sporadic rock-throwing

University of Michigan, where he graduated with honors from
the Colege of Architecture in 1935. In 1944, Wallenberg was
ft by the Swedish Foreign Ministy to Budapest, Hungary to
Tread a rescue mission designed to save the lives of 800,000
Jews still residing in Hungary.
By the time Wallenberg arrived, most of the 450,000 Jews
that had resided in the countryside had been deported to con-
centration camps. Wallenberg then focused on the Jews still
liing in Budapest. By delivering passports that granted them
Swedish citizenship and sheltering them in safe houses, Wal-
enberg is credited with saving the lives of 100,000 Jewish
Hungarians. Following the Soviet occupation of Budapest,

Wallenberg was apprehended, Lagergren believes, for the pur-
pose of exchange for other prisoners.
Lagergren said that Wallenberg learned the art of diploma-
cy by traveling around the United States and having long dis-
cussions with people in bus stations "in order to find the
person who was traveling the farthest."
A Russo-Swedish Commission has been investigating for
nine years what happened to Wallenberg following his work in
Hungary and so far its findings have been inconclusive.
"We have been fighting for 54 years to get him back and
now we are fighting for the truth," Lagergren said.
Lagergren said Wallenberg once remarked that after reread-
ing Hitler's "Mein Kampf" he believed Hitler dictated exactly
what he was going to do with regards to the Jews "and no one
paid attention."

neering senior Suman Palakodeti said.
1Candles, incense and lights adorned
the altar. Some female students chose to
wear saris, a traditional Indian outfit,
and all were shoeless as they sat, legs
crossed, on the floor facing the altar:
"Diwali is a widely celebrated holi-
#through out India, and as a result
s program tends to be one of the
biggest programs we have in the year,"

LSA senior Anjahi Shah said.
Palakodeti said since students have
certain expectations about the holiday,
IISC "tries to recreate that family
This year was Business school senior
Vikram Goel's first time celebrating
Diwali puja at the University. He said he
found it very similar to the services dur-
ing his childhood.
"My sisters will come in, my dad
will lead a song and we'll go around
and say our thanks," Goel said. "It's
a time to make resolutions and thank

your gods."
Shah said that during the prayers her
family wears new clothes and offer food
to the gods.
"My parents would come to this
Diwali, but they will be doing it at
home," Shah said.
Engineering sophomore Neeru Khan-
na attended her first University Diwali
puja last year and wasn't sure what to
"I didn't know if it would be the same
as back home, but it's a very traditional
service' Khanna said.
