      Peace Corps begins recruiting drive

      WASHINGTON (AP) - The Peace Corps is preparing to recruit more
      volunteers this year than at any time in the past 25 years but won't meet
      President Clinton's goal of 10,000 by the turn of the century. With an 8%
      budget increase, the organization intends to sign up nearly 4,000 volunteers
      this year, Peace Corps Director Mark Gearan said Monday. Currently, 6,700
      are serving two-year stints in 80 countries. With about half those ending
      terms, the year-end total is expected to exceed 7,100. The Peace Corps,
      whose budget is $240 million, expects to have the highest number of
      volunteers since 1974, said Gearan as he released the names of colleges and
      universities with the largest number of graduates serving overseas. See full
