SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -
Radical students armed with fire-
bombs briefly occupied part of the
residence of U.S. Ambassador Don-
ald Gregg early yesterday and held off
security guards with tear gas before
being seized by police, authorities
:Police said six students scaled the
all of the ambassador's residential
compound in downtown Seoul and
occupied one building to demand a
meeting with Gregg.
Riot police, who overpowered the
*s'tudents and dragged them away, re-
ported no injuries. U.S. embassy of-
ficials said Gregg had not been in-
volved in the incident, which lasted
about a half-hour.
The students urged an end to talks
with South Korea on the U.S.'s
trade imbalance with Seoul, shout-
ing "Punish Gregg!" and "We op-
Pose U.S. trade pressure!" police
*said. One student draped himself
with a South Korean national flag.

Harrison said the University may publi-

policy has already appeared in the University
Record. He added that he would like to wait
until a response mechanism is established
before printing future advertisements.
University Pres. James Duderstadt has

student, faculty, and administration represen-

was not publicizing the policy because the
policy breaks no new ground and is only for
public relations purposes.

Dolgan said. "This interim policy is nothing

WASHINGTON - The Senate
began plowing through a $14.1 bil-
lion deficit-reduction bill yesterday
as Democrats claimed enough votes
to block Republicans from tacking
on a cut in the capital-gains tax.
Unless Congress completes ac-
tion before Monday on the bill, au-
tomatic across-the-board cuts will be
triggered in most federal spending
programs. But Congress has left it-
self an out: Even if the automatic
cuts take effect, they can be restored
as soon as the bill is enacted.
The sheer size of the bill and the
fact that it was put into final form
barely two hours before debate began
were enough to cause some senators
to view the automatic spending cuts
as the lesser of two evils.
"If somebody wanted to manufac-
ture a piece of legislation absolutely
confirming the worst suspicions
they have about the budget process,
it would be this piece of legisla-
tion," said Senator William Arm-
strong (R-Colo.). "It is impossible
as a practical matter for any senator
to have more than a general idea of
what's in this bill."
He lodged his complaint as the
Senate Budget Committee approved
the bill which was written by eight
Members of both parties ex-
pressed concern because the bill is
laden with amendments that have
nothing to do with reducing the
Sen. James Sasser (D-Tenn.),
chairman of the Budget Committee,
and Sen. Pete Domenici of New
Mexico, the senior Republican on
the panel, promised an effort on the
Senate floor to strip away some of
the extraneous provisions.
Although the major purpose of
the spending bill is to reduce the
deficit in the current budget year to
about $110 billion, most of its bulk
is attributable to hundreds of pet pro-
jects. These range from a child-care
initiative to repeal of a law designed
to prevent discrimination in em-
ployer-paid health care to scores of
tax breaks for various special inter-
More important to the Bush ad-
ministration and Republican sena-
tors, the bill does not contain the
capital-gains tax cut that President
Bush promised during the campaign
last year. The Senate Finance Com-
mittee rejected the cut in favor of a
Democratic plan to liberalize tax-de-

Kurtz added that she and many of

least four different individuals called
