Doing Business in Europe: 1992 Holds Promise For U.S. Kristin Knauth
News USA By the end of 1992. there will be a true "common market" in Europe. That's when the remaining obstacles to the free movement of people, goods and services between the 12-member European Community (see map) will have been swept away. In this single marketplace, companies will be able to trade and invest as freely as they do between the states of America. Americans take free trade between the states of our nation for granted. We forgot that our free enterprise system could not have evolved if the Constitution had not prohibited tariffs and other trade barriers between the states. The concept of a large single European market, unhampered by national divisions, is not new. It was envisioned by the six European countries that launched the process of European unification in 1951. Concerned about economic and technological stagnation in the Community and to give new impetus to European integration. European leaders in 1985 launched a major drive to complete the market unification effort by the end of 1992. Ironically, many Americans

are fearful of "1992." as the program has been dubbed. They foresee a "Fortress Europe" characterized by Community-wide protectionism. There is little doubt 1992 will increase international competition. But European economic integration holds more promise than threat for American businesses, bankers and travelers. Already the world's largest trading power, the European Community is highly dependent on foreign trade â€” especially with the United States. Two-fifths of U.S. external investment and one-fourth of U.S. exports go to the Community-
U.S. corporations stand to benefit from this single market. And a stronger European economy can only make it a more powerful economic and political ally for the United States. "We continue to see a strong and unified Europe not as a rival, but as an ever stronger partner," President Ronald Reagan told the European Parliament in 1985. What are the potential advantages of 1992 for American businesses and banks? First, Europe will constitute a ready-made market of more than 320 million consumers. Second.

American Drug Sophomore .■ Featured Arrests Abroad ^ Over 2500 American citizens were arrested abroad in 1988. More than 900 of those arrested were held on charges of using or possessing drugs. As we approach the busy travel season, many Americans are getting ready for that long awaited trip abroad. For some, the trip will become a nightmare. The global war on drugs is heating up and there are increased efforts by all countries to stop the flow of illegal narcotics. Those Americans who assume there is no real danger in buying or carrying Just a "small" amount of drugs on their overseas trip may be in for a very unpleasant surprise. Americans have been arrested for possessing as little as a third of an ounce of marijuana. Many travelers assume that, as American citizens, they are immune from prosecution under foreign laws. But the truth is. Americans suspected of drug violations can face severe penalties, even the death penalty, in some foreign countries. It is not un-
common to spend months or even years in pretrial detention, only to be sentenced to a lengthy prison stay without parole. Once an American leaves U.S. soil. U.S. laws and constitutional rights no longer apply. U.S. consular officers can visit Jailed Americans to see that they are being fairly and humanely treated, but cannot get them out of Jail nor intervene in a foreign country's legal system on their behalf. Travelers should be particularly wary of persons who ask them to carry a package or drive a car across a border. They might unknowingly become narcotics traffickers. If required for medical reasons to take a medication containing narcotics they should carry a doctor's certificate attesting to that fact and should keep all medications in original and labeled containers. Getting involved with drugs overseas can do more than spoil a vacation, it can ruin one's life.

Baird's topic is The Polltics of God, Government, and Sex" The lecture Is open to the public free of charge. For more than 20 years, Balrd has been fighting for what he calls "reproductive
freedom." He grew up In a Brooklyn slum and became a "crusader for birth control rights" after a woman died in his arms in the early 1960s from a self-inflicted abortion. He has been involved in three landmark decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court - the 1972 decision that gave single people the same rights to birth control as married couples, the Roe v. Wade
decision in 1973 that legalized abortion, and the 1979 ruling that minors do not need their parents' permission for an abortion.

$NEWS Despite Sexism Art Will Stay (CPS) — The University of Illinois will not melt down two 19th-century sculptures displayed on campus, despite four campus artists' contention they are sexist. UI art museum director Stephen Prokopoff said the last week of February. "That's what the Germans in the Hitler era did." he said in response to the artists' picketing and hanging a protest banner at a faculty art show at the Krannert Art Museum on campus. Associate art Prof. Barbara DeGenevieve had asked the
sculptures, both by French artist Emmanuel Fremief. displayed outside the museum. The pieces slur women, showing one as "a castrating bitch" and another as "an object of lust." DeGenevieve said. "I'm tired of the museum not representing women. There are few women represented, and this is the way they choose" to do it. One of the sculptures, called "Trapper and Bearcubs," represents a female bear attacking a man who has attacked her cub, while the other, titled "Gorilla
and Woman." depicts a male gorilla carrying away a human female. Prokopoff charged the four protesters were judging "19th century art in a 20th century context." adding he thought the pieces were technically good and not meant to be taken as literally as the protesters contended. He also maintained "plenty of women" artists were represented in the faculty art show. "We've gotten a flood of letters and responses from people who are quite concerned that we are actually going to melt the sculptures." he said. But protester Brigitte Maronde said they never expected a "meltdown." They used the term, she said, as "a provocation" to discuss the museum's portrayals and treatment of women.

EC 1992 (Continued from Page 1) national corporations — many of whom have already been treating Europe as single market for decades — will benefit from Communitywide technology standards and lower transport costs. Third, officials of the European Community Commission promise a liberal uniform trade policy. "Faster growth and a more dynamic economy will ensure that protectionist pressures do not build in Europe." said Jacques Delors, president of the Commission. It will be much tougher for individual countries to enact nontariff barriers, such as voluntary restraint agreements. "The prosperity of the Community depends on a liberal trading policy." said Roy Denman. head of the European Community's Washington delegation. Fourth, for bankers, unification "will create a market that is larger and more free of
restrictions than any in the world." said Delors. "This market will be as open to any financial institution from a non-Community country ... as to Community financial institutions." Fifth, increased internal competition should push Community consumer prices down about six percent within five years. And overall European gross domestic product (GDP) could increase as much as $260 billion during this period, a full five percent of the current GDP. Finally, the costs of transport throughout Europe will decrease significantly. Another possibility, not part of the 1992 program, is a single European currency administered by a central bank. Despite questions about this and other steps toward even greater cooperation In the years ahead, clearly the end of 1992 will be the beginning of a new age for Europe.

Where's Miss Longwood Every year about this time Longwood Is preparing for Its annual Miss Longwood Pageant, but not this year! I Due to the Sesqulcentennlal events that have tapped the resources of the Public Affairs staff, there is not sufficient time for an event as the Miss Longwood Pageant. In effect Longwood has lost a marvelous chance to publicize itself during its 150th birthday year. This Is a shame because Longwood had one of the top local pageants In the United States and the fact that Longwood will not be represented in this year's Miss Virginia Pageant, should be alarming. Won't these people wonder what went wrong at Longwood, when Instead they should have been celebrating Its Sesqulcentennlal? On a more personal level, a pageant this year would have attracted a large number of participants, who would have strived to proudly represent Longwood during this very special year. Also, some $2,500 in scholarships will not be awarded this year, in effect denying students the chance to win money to pay for their education. We are glad to have had all of the Sesqulcentennlal events, but a great tradition has been broken. I Just hope that the break will not become permanent as the discussion of next year's pageant begins. It could be conveniently dropped from the agenda on the logic: "We did without it last year and If we skip it again, no one will really notice." Wrong. We miss our pageant and we want it back

that time. Through my involvement. I have realized that alcohol awareness has become a growing Issue that should not be Ignored any longer. Steps need to be taken to encourage students to become more involved In solving the problem rather than creating one. In closing I feel that to make more people aware of alcohol, it will alleviate some of the problems that our Institution presently encounters. People must understand that awareness can be the key to never encountering a problem with alcohol.

To the editor. Alcohol Awareness Is a problem that seems to exist In the minds but not In the actions of those who consume alcohol. By this I mean that many people are abusing this drug without realizing the consequences that If may bring on themselves as well as their peers. In many Instances alcohol effects people in a manner In which they lose control of their actions. Alcohol is proven to cause loss of memory, coordination, speech, and your ability to think logically. With the loss of any one of these functions, people could find themselves In a situation that can be very unpleasant for themselves and those surrounding them at

In honor of the Sesquicentennial year, many reowned speakers have made their way to our quaint school. Most recently. Edwin Newman shared with us his ideas about the educational system that we are all encountering. The topic of discussion for the evening was. The Future of Education." In keeping with this theme, a new lecture series is that we have tapped into our own storehouse of information: Longwood faculty and staff. The lecturers are members of the immediate college community. The lecture series, titled "The Greatest Lecture of All Time." is centered around three main goals:
2) To provide additional opportunities for student, faculty, and staff to become better acquainted. 3) To promote the Longwood traditions of involvement and community learning. The lecture series provides the opportunity for any faculty or staff member to share what he/she considers to be his/her greatest lecture. The lectures actually take place in the Cunningham Residence Hall. This allows for an informal exchange of ideas to occur among Longwood Community members. There are still seven lectures for the Spring series. Each will be held on the roof of South Cunningham (4th 1) To reinforce the impor- floor).
