"There is tremendous migration
of voters from party to party, the
likes of which we have never seen in
Norway," said Per Arne Hestetun of
the polling company Norsk Gallup
In an August poll of 7,038 peo-
ple by Gallup, voters listed as their
main concerns the pollution of
Norway's unique fjords, a record
unemployment rate of 5 percent, and
care for the aged.
Many voters feel the prime min-
ister, of the socialist Labor Party,
has not worked hard enough to clean
up Norway's environment. They
also say they have yet to feel the

"There is no plan for any Special

Bennett said in the ABC-TV
program This Week with David
"That is not in the plan... There
is no such plan," Bennett said.
SAlthough U.S. troops may be
under orders to avoid combat, the
administration had dispatched
security advisers to Colombia as part
of a $65 million package designed to
assist that nation in fighting cocaine

is know abroad as a champion of

foreign economists have praised her

Bennett was responding to a
report in yesterday's editions of the
Washington Post that President
Bush had signed a secret directive

It was not clear whether the gov-

States planned to expand that role.
The Post said the directive would
allow the advisers to accompany
Bolivian drug forces on patrol.
However, the administration source
said that "the military is not allowed

The Post report quoted an
unidentified senior administration
official as saying that "several
hundred" U.S. military advisers
could be sent to the three nations
under the "Andean initiative"
announced by Bush.
It said a secret section of the
initiative would authorize the U.S.
Special Forces to accompany
military patrols into so-called "safe
areas" in the three nations, including
Peru's Upper Huallaga Valley. The
region is a coca-growing jungle that
U.S. officials say is dominated by
Maoist "Shining Path" guerrillas.
"As we have said about the
troops on the ground in Colombia,
it is a dangerous environment,"
Bennett said yesterday. "They are not
going to seek out combat or
conflict. And we just all hope that
nothing befalls them."

student Maria Ayala said that it was
"strange to have so much free time
between classes" and she was
disappointed that "the scheduling
process could not have been more
organized. I didn't know that my

Incoming students also have to
adjust to new schedules and routines.
Eric Slimko griped that he was "not
