mining and chemical complex in Siberia, one of Russia's largest nuclear-
related facilities, ITAR-TASS reported on 8 August. A spokesman at the
U.S. Defense Department had no comment on the incident, Western agencies

SLOVAK DRAFT LAW ON UNIVERSITIES DRAWS CRITICISM. Lev Bukovsky, rector
of Pavol Jozef Safarik University in Kosice, has said the government's
latest version of the law on universities is "unacceptable," Narodna
obroda reported on 8 August. Bukovsky stressed that top representatives
of the university have rejected the draft law, which was sent to them by
the Ministry of Education for their response in late July. The draft law
would allow the ministry to create and eliminate university departments
and decide how many students would be accepted to study a given field.
Officials at a number of Slovak universities have criticized the law,
saying it would restrict academic freedom. -- Sharon Fisher, OMRI, Inc.

Germany (18.9%), Italy (4.8%), Austria (4.7%), Hungary (4.5%), Poland
(4%), and Russia (3.3%). The share of exports to EU member countries
reached 37.7%. Meanwhile, imports totaled 125 billion koruny, bringing
Slovakia's six-month trade deficit to 1.1 billion koruny. Sme on 8

imports of Russian oil are the reason for the trade deficit. -- Sharon

unemployment rate is one of the highest in Hungary. The federation will
seek to create more jobs for Roma and will prepare for the 1998 local
and parliamentary elections. It stressed that it hopes to field
candidates who have the backing of a majority of the Romani community in
order to "avoid dissension and meaningless debate." -- Alaina Lemon,
GREECE SENDS AID TO KRAJINA REFUGEES, CRITICIZES WEST. Greek Defense
Minister Gerasimos Arsenis on 7 August announced Greece will send
medicine, food, and clothing to Serbian refugees from Krajina,

leave on 8 August, and the aid will be distributed by the UN. Greece

Karolos Papoulias condemned the Croatian offensive against Krajina,

peaceful solution. Deputy Foreign Minister for European Affairs
Georgios-Alexandros Mangakis the same day criticized the U.S. and
Germany for backing Croatia's offensive against the rebel Krajina Serbs.

That was a xposted letter from s.c.r in which a Romanian, i don't
remember who, was kidding with O2 (Gyorgy). I found that ditty
funny because i knew it and used it as kid. I simply corrected the
grammar mistakes and asked the guy for a similiar Romanian one.
I even did not xposted the letter back to s.c.romanian. (turned out
he does not read s.c.magyar because i did get no Romanian ditty)
You say i was "arrogant and patronising". What exactly happened

He was "like" the hungarian Mocsari Lajos who was not loved, because he
was very kind with the romanians. So kind was Gelu P. with the hungarians.
He translated a lot of hungarians, like:
Bornemissza, Arany, Moricz, Orkeny (it was played five years in the
Municipal in Bucharest the "Macskajatek"; in english maybe CatPlay is the
