Greeks did thousands of
years ago. people will take

“The ‘lliad‘ is intended to

“It almost never gets done

The reasoning behind the
performance was a lilCL‘llki'

wanted to bring learning out-
side of the classroom. so he
started with the work he liked
the best a the "Iliad.”

want to bring an appreciation

only come from bringing the
story alive.

"Believe me. knowledge

Rabel hopes people will
be inspired to read the poem
to learn about life. He said
performing the "Iliad" is
more beneficial to learning

“It is not always good to
be lectured to." Rabel said.

The “lliad” is oral tradi-

Speaker: Refugee admissions a complex process

President's proposed limit for
refugees entering the United States
for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1


' Near East/South Asia
I East Asia
I Latin American/ Caribbean
I Europe/ Central Asia

By Jill Lester

The United States‘ process for han-
dling refugees from across the globe
came a little closer to UK with a speech
by one of the nation's top officials on the

Terry L. Rusch, director of the State
Department's Refugee Admissions pro-
gram since 1989. spoke about US.
refugee policy and programs in the audi-
torium of the WT. Young Library Friday
moming. '

In her speech. Rusch described a
refugee admissions process that has mul-
tiple steps involving Congress. the presi~
dent and her office in the State Depart-
ment, among others.

“It‘s not like we wave a wand over
10,000 Bhutanese and say. ‘Come on
in.m she said.

Every year. Refugee Admissions, the
president and Congress work together to
detemrine exactly how many people from
specific countries or continents will be al-
lowed into the United States. she said.

For example, for the 2009 fiscal year
beginning Oct. 1. President Bush has pro-
posed a ceiling of 80.000 refugees, with:
37.000 from the Near East and South
Asia; 19,000 from East Asia; 12,000
from Africa; 4,500 from Latin America
and the Caribbean: and 2.500 from Eu—
rope and Central Asia.

One focus of Refugee Admissions in
recent years has been Iraqi refugees.
Rusch said. More than 12.000 Iraqi

refugees have been admitted for the fiscal
year ending this month ~— about 20 per-
cent of the total refugees the US. will ad-
mit worldwide for the year.

While many Iraqis came before the
War in Iraq began in 2003. the invasion
has added to the US. efforts to relocate
refugees, Rusch said.

“If the US. hadn‘t invaded Iraq, I
don‘t think we would‘ve been under this
pressure to resettle." she said.

In addition to Iraqis. Rusch focused
on Kosovars and Bhutanese in her Friday
speech. All three groups represent differ-
ent ways the US. has admitted refugees
to the US. she said.

The Kosovo refugee program in the
late 1990s represented an example of an
emergency situation. where an ethnic
group needed immediate evacuation and
several other nations were overwhelmed
with other refugee populations. she said.

Bhutan's refugee program in the
l990s was a time when a refugee popula—
tion awaited an uncertain future in Nepal.
she said.

"There was an entire population
growing up in these camps." she said.
“So I came back and rattled some cages."

Hearing about refugee programs in
Nepal. the country of her birth. was “aca-
demic and personal." said Christie
Shrestha. a first-year doctoral student.

“I liked hearing from someone who's
in the program. actually in the process.“
said Shrestha. who left Nepal at 12. “This
is neat."

Undeclared sophomore Andy Norris

Terry L. Rusch director of the State Depart—
ment's Refugee Admissions program spoke
about U S. refugee policy on Friday

came to Rusch‘s lecture Friday to earn
extra credit for a class. However. he said
the lecture proved to be an interesting
way to Team about a slice of the United
States' population.

"You see a lot of people from other
countries get here. but you never think
about how they get here." Norris said.
“So it was interesting to see how the
process works."

“There weren‘t many places to move to." said
Sprouse. who said he had been in talks with Main
Street Live representatives for about two months.
“We were lucky to be able to make a deal with

The new location for The Dame. at 367 E. Main
St.. will occupy the Club Level and the AlA Concert
Level. on the right side of Main Street Live.

It will have its own entrance labeled as “The
Dame," said Main Street Live manager Jim Noll. Be-
tween 800 and 900 people will fit in the two connect-
ed spaces The Dame will occupy. he said.

The Dame will still be 21 and over. and have live
music. Noll said. However. in its new location. The
Dame will have access to Main Street Live‘s kitchen.
Also. if you go to The Dame you will probably be
able to get into Main Street Live with no additional
cover charge. he said.

The new venue will still have that “Dame" feel.
Sprouse said. They plan to redesign the new location
with the old Dame décor. he said. The. staff who
worked at the previous venue will also be retuming.
Sprouse said even those who moved away are mov-
ing back to Lexington to work at the new location.

“Lexington definitely needs a music venue of our
size." Sprouse said. “I'm just glad we‘re going to be
doing it again."

Journalism senior Pete Nolan attended shows at
The Dame many times before it closed. He hopes
the old Dame environment will encompass their
new location.

“As for the location of old venue. they could have
