Battles for beleaguered volunteer agency ongoing By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — AmeriCorps, celebrating its first year Friday under a new chief, remains alive despite struggles that lie ahead over the agency's record-keeping practices and Republican criticism. "(President) Clinton sent up a rocket with the help of Congress in his first year, and the new (Republican-led) Congress tried to shoot that rocket down," Harris Wofford, head of the Corporation for National Service, which oversees AmeriCorps, said this week. Although Wofford, a former Democratic senator from Pennsylva- nia, has sought to remove politics from the job, politics remain a part of the tug of war between the Clinton administration and Congress. Congress sought to strip the agency of funding for fiscal 1996, but Clinton stood firm and the money was restored. House Republicans tried again in the fiscal 1997 budget, but a House-Senate conference committee restored $4QO million before sending the measure to the president. Now, the administration wants the program expanded, proposing $1 billion over five years to use AmeriCorps volunteers to help fight illiteracy. Already, the plan has drawn fire from Republicans.

Toll Free 1-800-227-7482 LINCOLN' Dodge Jeep/Eagle CHRYSLER Pfymoutfi East Timor's independence^ movement leaders honored Roman Catholic bishop, exiled activist trying to end Indonesian rule By The Associated Press OSLO, Norway — The Nobel committee threw its prestige behind East Timor's independence movement Friday, awarding its 1996 Peace Prize to a Roman Catholic bishop and an exiled activist who have struggled to peacefully end two decades of Indonesian rule. For the third time in recent years, the Norwegian awards committee used the lofty award to prod hard-line regimes in Asia into curbing human rights abuses. Indonesia didn't appreciate the public slap. Indonesia expressed "regret" at the decision to honor Bishop Carlos Filipe Ximenes Belo and said co-winner Jose Ramos-Horta "had been clearly involved in inciting and manipulating the people of East Timor." But the awards committee left no doubt who it blamed for the widespread death, terror 'and persecution after the Indonesian army and navy invaded the former Portuguese colony of some BISHOP BELO RAMO&HOfTTA 600,000 people in December 1975 and annexed it the next year. "In the years that followed, it has been estimated that one-third of the population lost their lives due to starvation, epidemics, war and terror," said the awards citation. The United Nations has never recognized Indonesian control over East Timor, now one of the most backward areas in the region. East Timor, which is 80 percent Roman Catholic, is between the Indonesian island of Java and the northwestern tip of Australia, about 450 miles from Darwin. It is the only Christian area in Indonesia, and its people resent a steady, government-mandated influx of Muslims from Indonesia, which, with 190 million people, is the world's largest Muslim nation. By winning, Bishop Belo, 48, and Ramos-Horta, a 51-year-old former guerrilla, receive a $1.12 In Honor of COLUMBUS DAY The Following Area Banks Will Be Closed Monday, October 14 The Bennington State Bank Benningtbn Bank of Tescott Tescott The United Branch Bank Minneapolis We will resume business as usual Tuesday, October 15th million cash prize and international acclaim. •, Belo received word of his win with a whisper. He was holding a Mass for abdttt 2,000 people in the East Timor CKy of Dili when a church official came up and quietly told him he was the co-winner of the worlu's most famous peace award. Belo mentioned nothing to the churdh- goers. "I did not want to announce tfie news to the people congregated So as not to cause problems," he said. From the day he was appointed acting bishop in 1983, Belo h&s worked for a peaceful settlement of the conflict and self-determination for his territory. He is quick to criticize those resorting to violence, whether Indonesian troops or young East Timorese wanting to seize independence. Ramos-Horta has spent tWo decades acting as the exiled international spokesman for East Timor's independence movement, most often from his base in Sydney, Australia, where he teaches at the University of New South Wales.. "I hope that this award is not only a personal gain for me, that it will help the struggle of the people of East Timor," Ramos-Horta told the Australia Broadcasting Corp.
