The most important issues facing
the U.S. in the coming years are
family and military issues, Schroeder
Since her election to Congress in
1972, Schroeder has been known as
a champion of family issues. She
recently wrote a book called Cham-
pion of the American Family. She
also sits on the House Armed Ser-
Current U.S. mentality towards
the family is "if you can't afford it,
we'll penalize you," she said. The
U.S. is one of a handful of countries
where a woman can be fired from a
job for having a baby, she said,
voicing her concern that Congress
will water down unpaid family med-
ical leave legislation it will consider
later this spring.
Only 7 percent of families "still
live like Ozzie and Harriet," Schroe-
der said, but family legislation as-
sumes that most families are like
that. This makes legislators wonder
why divorce, drug and alcohol abuse,
and domestic violence are such large
To pay for needed changes,
money should come from the mili-
tary budget, she said, a comment
which was met by hearty applause.
The U.S. military, she said, is de-
ployed as though it was 1945.
Schroeder fielded several questions
about her brief campaign for the
presidency in 1987, and hinted that
she will consider running again, if
conditions were right. The biggest
obstacle in the campaign, she said,
was the perception of her as a nov-
elty. When she wanted to talk about
issues, she was asked, "Why are you
running as a woman?"
Schroeder's speech was sponsored
through a grant from thesWarner-

some type of certification stating
that they are drug-free, said one Uni-

"We are expecting that we will
get guidance of implementation by

Many questions can not be an-
swered yet, Nordby said because "the
whole thing has just begun and we
don't have any experience (applying
the law) yet."

its employees about its goal to have

15 die in military helicopter crash
TUSCON - Crew members on a military helicopter that crashed and
burned in the desert were wearing night-vision goggles, but that was not a
factor in the accident that killed the 15 people, Air Force officials said
Use of the light-amplifying goggles has been questioned in a number
of previous military crashes.
Four Air Force Reserve crew members and 11 Army Special Forces
soldiers from Fort Bragg, North Carolina were aboard the CH-3H
helicopter that went down Sunday night in the desert 25 miles northwest
of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.
Capt. Carlos Roque, a spokesperson at Davis-Monthan, said he had no
information on the sequence of events leading to the crash and didn't
know if there had been any radio transmissions.
Roque said the flight crew was wearing night-vision goggles that
amplify low light but that investigators had determined that the goggles
"were not a factor in the accident."

The 9:57 a.m. EST lift-off was
an hour and 50 minutes later than

dense it obscured the launch pad

caused some delay, but the major
problem was winds five miles over-

as it raced upward faster faster than
the speed of sound.
To compensate for the winds, a
computer aboard Discovery was
quickly reprogrammed to adjust the
ship's flight angle. The satellite

University Affairs must approve the
council's recommendations before
they are presented to the University's
Board of Regents.
The council - composed of stu-
dents, faculty and administrators -
disbanded in 1987 due to heated dis-
agreements between students and
faculty. Last July, the regents
threatened to permanently disband

not demonstrate their ability to

The council is currently working
to draft rules which implement the
policy. Yesterday, council members
discussed whether to adopt a com-

formulation of due process," Crox-
After the meeting, council co-
chair Jens Zorn, a physics professor,
said he didn't forsee any serious ob-
stacles looming ahead and thought
the council was close to finalizing
some proposals this month. .

WASHINTON -The Bush administration is expected to ask Congress
for more than $50 million in additional humanitarian aid for the
Nicaraguan Contras to ensure their survival until early next year, U.S.
officials said yesterday.
The existing $27 million program, which provides for food, clothing
,shelter and medical services, expires at the end of the month. The request
is likely to be sent to Capitol Hill before the lawmakers begin a two-
week spring recess this weekend.
Later Contra leader Adolfo Calero told reporters after a meeting at the-
State Department he was informed that the administration request would
be "40 some odd million dollars."
As described by officials speaking on condition of anonymity, the re-
quest is part of a broad array of activities by the new administration de-
signed primarily to achieve a democratic outcome in Nicaragua.
Ministers of Moslem nations meet
RIYDAH, SAUDI ARABIA- Foreign ministers of Moslem nations
began a four-day conference yesterday with attention fixed on "The Sa-
tanic Verses" and Iran's order that its author be killed.
Prince Saud al-Faisal, the Saudi foreign minister, said yesterday that
debate on the Palestinian issue and recognition of the provisional gov-
ernment organized by Afghan guerrillas should have precedence on the
agenda. He also opposed Iran's insistence that discussion of the novel and
the author head the Agenda.
Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries have criticized Salman
Rushdie and banned his novel which most Moslems say blasphemes Is-
lam, but have not supported Iranian patriarch Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini's instructions asking Rushdie be killed.
Most participants believed Rushdie. should be given an Islamic trial
and a chance to repent.
Teamsters reach tentative pact
NEW YORK-Teamsters officials reached a tentative labor-reform
settlement with federal prosecutors yesterday hours before the start of a
trial on a lawsuit to oust the union's allegedly mobster-dominated leader-
Prosecutors declined to discuss details of the tentative pact but a lawyer
for the Teamsters said the union agreed to introduce constitutional
amendments for election reform at its 1991 convention. Three watchdogs
jointly chosen by the union and the government, will investigate and ar-
bitrate alleged union corruption and oversee the elections.
The settlement reached after round-the-clock weekend negotiations,
was subject to approval by U.S. Attorney General Dick Thornburgh.
The lawsuit sought to oust the union's top leadership as the culmina-
tion of the government's decade long battle to force reform on the 1.6
GOP chair to jam with Paul and
the band on Letterman
WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican National Committee chair and
former Percy Sledge guitarist Lee Atwater says he's "tickled" to be invited
to appear on NBC's "Late Night with David Letterman" and play with the
"World's Most Dangerous Band."
Atwater is to appear on the show today to play guitar with musical
director Paul Shaefer and his band.
"I'm just tickled to play with what I think is one of the tightest bands
in America," he said.
Atwater probably won't play any Dead Kennedys tunes.
