Clinton Wants to Raise
Minimum Wage to $5.15
WASHINGTON, D.C. —Insistingthat
a person cannot live on $4.25 an hour,
President Clinton invoked history and sta
tistics Saturday to try to persuade balking
Republicans to back an increase in the
Clinton, in his weekly radio address,
reminded Republicans that it was his GOP
predecessor, George Bush, who approved
the most recent minimum-wage increase.
He also argued that because of inflation,
the purchasing power of the minimum
wage would hit a 40-year low next year.
Clinton on Friday unveiled a proposal
to increase the minimum wage by 90 cents
during two years, to $5.15 an hour. GOP
congressional leaders were skeptical, prom
ising a fair hearing and nothing more.
U.S. Leaves Door Open for
Resolving Trade Dispute
WASHINGTON, D.C. The warn
ing shots have been fired in the U.S.-China
trade war, but both sides are leaving room
for a truce before real damage is done to
one of the world’s most important trade
and political relationships.
The United States, exasperated by
China’s failure to crack down on intellec
tual property theft, on Saturday announced
100 percent tariffs on $ 1.08 billion worth of
China retaliated and placed 100 percent
tariffs on a variety of U.S. products.
U.S. Trade Representative Mickey
Kantor’s pronouncement that “we are
drawing the line here today” on trade came
just three days after an annual State De
partment report faulting China.
Israeli Cabinet Refuses to
Allow Palestinians to Work
JERUSALEM Prime Minister
Yitzhak Rabin’s Cabinet on Sunday re
fused the PLO’s demands to allow tens of
thousands of Palestinians to return to jobs
While praising Palestine Liberation
Organization efforts to thwart violence,
ministers said the attempts were not enough
and agreed only to a minor easing oflsrael’s
two-week closure of the West Bank and
In its weekly session, the 18-member
Cabinet decided to readmit Palestinian
teachers and doctors into Israel and permit
the import ofPalestinian agricultural goods.
Deputy Palestinian Economics Minis
ter Samir Huleileh said the renewed export
of produce to Israel would bring impover
ished Palestinians a much-needed daily
infusion of $1 million.
Bosnian Croats, Muslims
Take Binding Arbitration
MUNICH, Germany—B osnian Croats
and Muslims agreed Sunday on binding
arbitration to decide how to make their
federation function and smooth growing
Shoring up the federation has been a
priority for international mediators work
ing on a peace plan for the area.
Assistant Secretary of State Richard
Holbrooke, who chaired a meeting of the
two sides with the mediators from the five
nation Contact Group, said Washington
was pleased with the pact.
Although the Bosnian Croats and Mus
lims are no longer fighting each other, little
progress toward a military and political
union has been made since Washington
brokered the federation last March.
Sectarian Violence Claims
21 in Pakistani Capital
KARACHI, Pakistan Gunmen with
automatic weapons fired on two Sunni
Muslim crowds Sunday, killing at least 21
people and wounding 26 in a burst of
sectarian violence in this troubled city.
It was one of Pakistan’s bloodiest days
in recent years and raised questions about
whether Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto’s
government can control the streets of the
nation’s biggest metropolis.
Police said they suspected Shiite Mus
lims had carried out Sunday’s attacks in
retaliation for a series of Saturday night
shootings in Karachi.
The increasingly bitter Sunni-Shiite feud
is one of several running battles in Karachi,
a city convulsed by ethnic, political and
religious violence in recent years.

Plea to ‘Remember Jan. 4’
BY ADAM DAVIS
ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR
Throughout history, people have used
past tragedies as motivation for action.
“Remember the Alamo. ” “Remember the
Maine.” “Remember Pearl Harbor.”
Now there’s “Remember Jan. 4.”

lina (18-1, 8-1
N.C. State 63
in the ACC) used this rallying cry to find
the emotion it needed to wallop N.C. State
at the Smith Center, 82-63.
Saturday’s win came exactly one month
after the Wolfpack(lo-9,2-7) handed UNC
its only loss, 80-70 at Reynolds Coliseum.
“Donald (Williams) doesn’t talk much,
and Donald wrote on the board ‘Remem-

Donald’s pumped up, I think that got ev

just gettin’ hyped, talking to each other
before we went out for warmups, and I
knew that we’d come out and everybody
would be all right."
Williams said it was time to show N.C.
State what the real Tar Heels look like.
“We did want to get ’em back, because
we don’t think we played well that night, ”
he said. "We just wanted to come out and
show them that we’re a much better bas
ketball team than we showed that night.”
Mission accomplished. But it wasn’t
easy, at least in the first half. State gave Tar

The fans didn’t seem too worried, ei
ther. In the first 12 minutes, they had all the
enthusiasm of a monk at a fbneral. But
during the third television timeout, the
band demanded that the people stand up,
and the masses responded.
Coincidentally, or possibly not, UNC
turned a 29-24 deficit into a 34-31 lead
during the next four minutes.
“Our band director (Jim Hile), he was
great,” head coach Dean Smith said. “I’m

and time again where we have a 1-4 and
some penetration move,” Williams said,
“and I just saw how Lakista was really
playing me for the penetration, so I caught
him, and I pulled up for the 3.”
It was a demoralizing blow forthe ’Pack,
which suddenly trailed by five despite lead

Plan Attempts to Diversify
Mid and North Campus by
Reserving Spots for Blacks
BY MELISSA MILIOS
The Racial Diversity Plan, a program
sponsored by the Residence Hall Associa
tion and the Department of University
Housing aimed at diversifying UNC’s resi
dence halls, will continue into the 1995-96
Aaron Nelson, executive assistant of
human relations for RHA, said the goal of
the program was to raise the percentage of
African-American students living on North
and Mid Campus to a percentage similar to
the one on South Campus.
In 1991, Christy Pons and Scott Peeler,
then RHA co-presidents, introduced the
Racial Diversity Plan.
In November, the Housing Advisory
Board and the RHA reviewed the plan.
After minor revisions to the plan, the com
mittee decided to continue it.
“The problem that housing and RHA
saw in 1991 was a great deal of campus
segregation and a lack of diversity on Mid
and North Campus, so they established the
program in an attempt to diversify the
entire campus,” Nelson said.
He said the revised 1994 Diversity Plan
would attempt to bring the population of
every residence hall to more than 8.9 per
cent African-American, the percentage of
African Americans enrolled in the Univer
Assistant Housing Director Anne
Presnell said the Diversity Plan had begun
as a way to distribute the African Ameri
cans throughout the campus.
