Bush, Mubarak discuss
peace efforts in Mideast
WASHINGTON - Egyptian
President Hosni Mubarak met with
President George Bush Monday on
Mideast peace efforts and said he saw
a “golden opportunity” for a break*
. through between Israel and the Pales
Mubarak said failing to seize the
opportunity “would be a grave mis
take” and that he and Bush agreed
“to work closely together in order to
utilize the existing momentum.”
“The continuation of the status
quo is hazardous to both” Israel and
the Palestinians, the Egyptian leader
' told reporters after an Oval Office
session lasting nearly an hour.
As Mubarak promoted his plan,
which includes a demand that Israel
agree in principal to giving up seized
lands, aides to Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir said the Israeli leader
does not intend to alter his own Pales
tinian peace initiative.
Shamir's plan calls for elections in
the occupied territories to choose
delegates for negotiations with Israel.
However, final status on the lands
occupied by Israel since the 1967

Mubarak told reporters here the
essential next step in the peace proc

Yeutter promotes elimination of non-tariff trade barriers
MILWAUKEE - U.S. Agriculture Secre
tary Clayton Yeutter told Midwest governors
Monday non-tariff trade barriers must be
eliminated to restore order to international
“For all practical purposes, agriculture is an
anarchy in terms of internationaltrade,’’ Ycut
ter said during the keynote address to the
Midwest Governors’ Conference.
He called upon the governors to make a top
priority of working with the federal govern
ment and business leaders to eliminate export
subsidies, which he said impeded U.S. fanners
competing in international markets.
“Export subsidies are probably the most
onerous of all the trade barriers. They probably
hurt your states more than anything else,'' he
He said import constraints, which can be
hidden f rom negotiations, are another type of
trade barrier that hurts international agricul
“We wear a relatively white hat in this area
compared to some of our trading partners.
Everybody has a techique designed tokeep out
imports,’ ’ he said.
The United States should convert non-tariff
barriers into tariffs because the latter cannot be
hidden and can be negotiated down, he said. As
an example, he cited negotiations last year that
opened die door for U.S. exporters to trade in
Japanese beef markets.
“We convinced the Japanese to convert all
their barriers into tariffs,” he said.
Yeutter said the farm bill Congress must
write next year will have to alter national
agriculture policies to encourage the develop
ment and sale of new products.
He cited Canada’s decision to grow canola,
a better oil seed than soybean, as an example of
how research and development can spawn new
“Canola is today being grown primarily in
Canada and shipped into the U.S.,” he said.
“We ought to be mowing canola in the U.S.
and slueping it to Canada.
‘ ‘Who is it that says we should be growing
com and soybeans in Iowa and Nebraska for
the next thousand yean? We ought to be grow
ing what is most profitable,” be added.
Stales should allocate more money to re
search and technology, even in these time of
budget constraints, Yeutter added.
“If we don’t retain our Jge over the rest of
the world through research and technology , we
are not going to be competitive internation
ally,” he said. “We’ve got to open market
opportunities from value-added products
around the world.”
“It is important, imperative, indispensable
that we sell aggressively oversees. He who is
not aggressive internationally is lost. Market
shares are the name of the game,” he said.

White supremacists plan march in Tennessee
PULASKI, Tenn.—Strip away the
orange ribbons, and Pulaski’s court
house square could be a movie set for
an archetypal Southern town, where a
Confederate hero stands on a pedestal
and pickup tracks sport Dixie flags.
But the orange “brotherhood
color” affixed to storefronts, lamp
posts, car antennas and coat lapels is
meant to make sure no one confuses.
Pulaski residents with the white su

through town Saturday.

this county is a victim of r^>c by these
groups," said author Gregory

throughout'Jk town of about 8,000
people 90 miles souiii of Nashville,
. Venn. Residents have been asked to
stay off the streets, and churches have
planned activities to keep children
and teen-agers away from downtown.
The racists are attracted to Pulaski
by the town s role in the history of the
Ku Klux Klan. The group was
founded in Pulaski in 1865 as a reac
tion to what community leaders saw
as a threat by carpetbaggers and for
mer slaves after the Civil War.
It was disbanded four years later
after the Legislature passed an anti
Klan law. The mooera Klan was
formed outside Atlanta in 1915 by a
tamer minister who added Jews and
Catholics to the group's list of ene
The Klan began marching in Pu

Martin Luther King national holiday.

proper permits and follow other rules
they can't be stopped.
“It started out as 35 to 40 old boys
putting on their bed sheets and
marching around the square harangu
ing,” said Mcdon&ld, author of the
“Fletch” mystery novels. “These
people considered the town’s silence
tacit approval. Nothing could be fur
ther front the truth.”
Town leaden decided it was time
to act when the Aryan Nations ot
Hayden Lake, Idaho, announced
plans to march here this year.
“We’re just not going to let our
town be taken overby bigots and bate
mongers,” said Bettie Higgins, di
rector of the Chamber of Commerce.
Butler’s group claims several
hundred members across the county.
but he did not know how many uj
expect on Saturday. “All members oi
our race are welcome,” he said when
asked whether Klan members and
skinheads would march.
He said die town’s condemnation
“doesn't bother us a bit”
