In accordance with section 22 of the Agricultural Adjustment Act, as amended (``the Act'') (7 U.S.C. 624), the Secretary of Agriculture has advised me that he has reason to believe that wheat, classified in heading 1001 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), is being or is practically certain to be imported into the United States under such conditions and in such quantities as to render or tend to render ineffective, or materially interfere with, the price support, payment, and production adjustment program for wheat conducted by the Department of Agriculture. 2. Based upon this advice, I directed the United States International Trade Commission (``the Commission'') to initiate an investigation with respect to this matter under section 22 of the Act. 3. Based on the investigation and report of the Commission, I have determined that certain articles of wheat are being imported or are practically certain to be imported into the United States under such conditions and in such quantities as to materially interfere with the price support, payment, and production adjustment program for wheat conducted by the Department of Agriculture. Further, I have determined that the imposition of the tariff-rate quotas, as hereinafter proclaimed, is necessary in order that the entry, or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption, of such articles will not materially interfere with the price support, payment, and production adjustment program for wheat conducted by the Department of Agriculture. I have also determined that imports of wheat from Canada have increased significantly as a result of a substantial change in the wheat support programs of the United States and Canada. 4. Section 604 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2483), authorizes the President to embody in the HTS the substance of relevant provisions of that Act, of other Acts affecting import treatment, and of actions taken thereunder. Now, Therefore, I, William J. Clinton, President of the United States of America, acting under the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, including but not limited to section 22 of the Agricultural Adjustment Act, as amended, and section 604 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, do proclaim that: (1) In order to establish tariff-rate quotas on imports of certain wheat, subchapter IV of chapter 99 of the HTS is modified as set forth in the Annex to this proclamation. (2) For durum wheat entered during a specified quota year, other than qualifying goods of Mexico or seed wheat, the aggregate quantity exceeding 300,000,000 kilograms but not exceeding 450,000,000 kilograms is subject to the in-quota rate of duty established in such Annex and the aggregate quantity exceeding 450,000,000 kilograms is subject to the over-quota rate of duty established in such Annex. For other wheat and meslin entered during a specified quota year, other than qualifying goods of Mexico or white winter wheat, the aggregate quantity exceeding 1,050,000,000 kilograms is subject to the over-quota rate of duty established in the Annex. (3) The modifications made by this proclamation shall be effective with respect to articles entered, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after September 12, 1994, and before the close of September 11, 1995, unless expressly suspended, modified, or terminated. In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this thirteenth day of October, in [[Page 2036]] the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety-four, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and nineteenth. William J. Clinton [Filed with the Office of the Federal Register, 3:40 p.m., October 14, 1994] Note: This proclamation was released by the Office of the Press Secretary on October 14, and it was published with its annexes in the Federal Register on October 18.

On behalf of the American people, Hillary and I would like to convey our deepest sympathy to the Waxman family and to the people of Israel at this dark moment. Nahshon Waxman was a son of Israel, but he was also a son of America. Terrorists must know that these acts will not defeat the process that is bringing peace to Israel and her Arab enemies. In the face of such cowardly and evil actions, I know that it is hard to go forward. But we owe it to all those who have paid such a heavy price to persist and finally prevail in our pursuit of peace.

White Cane Safety Day provides a special opportunity to reflect on the many accomplishments and contributions of Americans who are blind and visually impaired and to heighten public awareness of the symbolic strength of the white cane. For blind and visually impaired persons, the white cane represents access, opportunity, mobility, and safety. For everyone in the United States, the white cane reminds us that having a disability does not diminish one's right to take part in any aspect of society. The independence the white cane provides enables wider participation in the work force, in commerce, education, entertainment, and indeed in all aspects of the human experience. We must remain vigilant in our efforts to ensure full access for
