policy-making decisions that face the

in the presidential campaign," said

Regents approve '89-'90 budge
BY STEVE KNOPPER
An 8.9 percent student tuition in-
crease for next year will be part of
the University's new plan to raise its
The University's Board of Regents
unanimously approved the plan to
request an extra $13.6 million from
the State Legislature, which, if ap-
proved by the legislature, would
boost total state funding of the Uni-
versity to $261 million.
This year's request is a little dif-
ferent from past years. Previously,
the University requested a set amount
of money to meet its own needs. But
the new proposal is based on the
state's own growth rate.
For example, if the state economy
grows 6 percent, the University will
request an 8 percent increase in state
funding. But if the state growth rate
remains low, student tuition could
reach even higher plateaus.
University and state officials have
frequently wrangled over tuition and
state funds in a budgetary vicious

over the last three years - have irked

Hostage situation develops
Kidnappers holding American hostages announced five demands for
their release yesterday and threatened to make the United States pay a price
that "would reflect adversely" on the captives' fates if the demands are not
This second threatening statement in three days from the Pro-Iranian
Islamic Jihad demanded the release of Lebanese and Palestinian holy war-
riors from jails in all nations, non-intervention in Lebanese affairs, and
payment of war reparations to the Lebanese people.
In Milan, Italy, Police said yesterday that a Lebanese woman arrested
there planned to deliver photographs of these same American hostages to
an Italian man who has been linked to arms scandals and the Italian secret
Italian media speculated that the man may have been acting as a go-
between in efforts to free hostages held in Lebanon.
Marcos faces more charges
HONOLULU - Ferdinand Marcos claims he is relieved that he has
finally been indicted by the United States and will have a chance to defend
himself in court, but the deposed Philippine president has plenty of other
Friday, the day after the U.S. signed an agreement with the Philippine
government to allow military bases to remain in that nation, Marcos was
indicted in New York, and is now the target of investigations or lawsuits
in five other states and the Philippines.
Dante Fascell, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said
Saturday that Marcos has been subpoenaed to appear before the Asian and
Pacific Affairs Subcommittee. There have also been reports that Marcos
funneled millions of dollars into the 1980 and 1984 campaigns of Pres-
ident Reagan and Vice President George Bush.
Marcos lost head-of-state immunity after fleeing to Hawaii in February
1986 during the civilian-military revolt in the Philippines.
Bush ads stir controversy
WASHINGTON - Democratic Vice-Presidential candidate Lloyd:
Bentsen and former Republican Presidential candidate Bob Dole appeared
yesterday on ABC-TV's "This Week With David Brinkley", discussing in.,
part questions concerning the accuracy of Bush campaign commercials.
"I think that's one of the reasons the American people will turn,
against them, with that kind of campaign," Bentsen said, "and that's why
I think we're going to put it all together."
"I don't think that's the case," replied Dole, but then added, "I'm not
involved in the Bush campaign. I can defend George Bush, but I'm not
sure I can defend every ad."
Kitty Dukakis, the Democratic nominee's wife, yesterday on CBS-
TV's "Face the Nation", said Bush campaign charges reminded her of the
"worst kind of McCarthy-like technique" from the communist-hunting
1950's, and of the dirty tricks of President Nixon's election campaigns.
Hurricane hits Nicaragua;
300,000 homeless, 50 dead
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - Hurricane Joan killed at least 50 people
and left 300,000 homeless in its rampage across Nicaragua, officials said
yesterday. Rain drenched the country while the government tried to
organize rescue efforts and restore communications.
The storm left another 21 people dead in Costa Rica and four dead in
Panama, bringing the death toll for its six-day trip across the Caribbean
to at least 111. More than 150 people were missing.
President Daniel Ortega said Cuban planes were expected to bring,
medicine, clothes, and tents to Bluefields, another town devastated by the
Ortega, asked whether the United States should send aid, replied, "The
best humanitarian aid the United States could give us would be to stop its
terrorist policies against Nicaragua."
'When does a person
get to be a part of art?'
OTTAWA, Kan. - About 700 people wearng red and blue shirts
gathered on a soybean field Saturday to be molded into a piece of art by
an artist known for his unusual creations.
Stan Herd popped the top off his latest land-art creation: a five-acre
depiction of two partially crumpled Pepsi and Coca-Cola soda pop cans.
The people provided the color: Herd and his unusual ability to sculpt
farm land added the design. The title of the work: "The Ottawa Beanfield
"When does a person get a chance to be a part of art?" said Richard
Rudzzinski, 45, of Wichita, who stood near the bottom of the Pepsi can.
Herd said the work was a reminder that people need to take better care
of the environment. Before "Cola Wars," Herd's field art included a vase
of sunflowers on a checkered table cloth plowed on a field near
