was accused by the United States of
trying to foment a communist revo-
lution in neighboring EL Salvador.
Former President Jimmy Carter
was among the thousands of interna-
tional election observers who moni-
tored the voting.
Defense Minister Humberto
Ortega, the president's brother, and
Interior Minister Tomas, who con-
trols the police, had suggested they
might not give an opposition gov-
ernment control of these forces.
Daniel Ortega said he spoke for
his party and government, however
in promising to honor the results of
Sunday's election.
"I want to tell all Nicaraguans
and all the nations of the world that
tlie president of Nicaragua and the
gtvernment will respect and submit
itself to the popular mandate," he
said. Ortega said the Sandinistas had
created "an independent dignified and
s&ereign Nicaragua with economic
and social development and with
complete democracy."
Many supporters wept as he
stood, arms raised, while people
sang the Sandinista party anthem.

Sandinista supporters express their feelings as they watch Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega's televised
address early yesterday after losing the election. The supporters gathered at the Sandinista Party
headquarters in Managua.

said John Anthony, special FBI
agent. "The fact that an individual
may be a homosexual or lesbian is a
factor taken into consideration when
arr individual applies, but it is only
one factor," Anthony said.
Anthony said the FBI looks at
wi4ifher an individual is a lesbian or
gay male because the bureau has to
hure people who are easily transferred
froit one state to another.
"In over one-half of the states
homlosexuality is a crime. If a

Frisancho said friends in
Nicaragua told him that last Wednes-
day's massive pre-election rally
staged in Managua by Ortega's San-
dinista party was not an indication of
overwhelming support for the San-
dinistas. He said they told him the
rally consisted in large part of gov-

ernment workers bussed in from out-
lying areas of the city who were
afraid of losing their jobs if they did
not attend the rally.
Opinions also differed on the rea-
sons for Chamorro's successful
"The voters didn't reject the San-
dinistas so much as they voted to
end the war," said Gus Tescheke, a
LASC member. "You can only sac-
rifice for so long."
However, Frisancho disagreed.
"There may have been a sizable
portion of people who voted out
Ortega because they know Nica-
ragua's relations with the U.S. will
improve. But I know many people
who hate the Sandinistas because of
the way they treat the Catholic
Church and control all of the
country's institutions."
There were different views on
how the change in leadership will af-
fect the economically ravaged Latin
American country.
"It's pretty clear the war will be
stopped and the embargo will be
lifted," said Latin American Solidar-
ity Committee (LASC) steering
committee member Dave Austin.
"But Chamorro will have problems
holding the coalition together."
"The message Nicaragua has got-
ten from the U.S. for the last ten
years is that if it is to be an indepen-
dent state it will have to deal with
economic sanctions and U.S. inter-

ference," said Vandermeer. "I think
Bush won the election."
In the short run Frisancho said he
expects increases in U.S. aid to help
Nicaragua and its economy.
Earlier in the week President
Bush hinted that support of the Con-
tras, the counter-revolutionary group
fighting Ortega's government, might
be ended if Chamorro won the elec-
tion. Bush also suggested the five-
year old trade sanctions imposed on
Nicaragua could be lifted.

Marsh is advising NORML until it
receives further legal counsel. Marsh
said yesterday he filed a request for
the documentation surrounding the
cancellation of the permit under the
Freedom of Information Act. The
University has ten days to comply
with the request.
Marsh also signed an affidavit
stating that a member of Cianciola's
staff told him University President
James Duderstadt had been involved
in the decision to revoke the permit.
Cianciola said he consulted Asso-

the decision and was not aware of
any other involvement by University

Baltic legislatures denounce
state of emergency draft law
MOSCOW - Legislatures from the Baltics and other independent-
minded republics denounced yesterday a draft law that would allow the
Kremlin to take over their governments by declaring a state of emergency.
Several deputies said the proposal is even more dangerous because a
separate bill on strengthening the presidency would permit the nation's
leader to declare a state of emergency on his own.
The state of emergency bill would allow the Presidium, chaired by
Gorbachev, to suspend republic parliaments and city councils, cancel local
governmental decisions and take over administration of an area in cases of
mass disorder that threaten life and health.
The bill is one of dozens proposed in the current two-month session.
Legislators frequently have complained they had no legal guarantee- only
Gorbachev's word- that peaceful demands for reform would not be crushed
by soviet tanks and troops.
Jackson decides not to run
for mayor of Washington
WASHINGTON - Jesse Jackson announced yesterday he will not run
for mayor of the "dispirited" nation's capital but he refused to rule out a
third bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1992.
"I want to continue to serve, but not as mayor," Jackson said. "At
present I believe that I may best serve by continuing work at a national
level to change the direction of this country."
Jackson's political plans have been the subject of much conjecture
since he moved to the District of Columbia last April. Speculation about
a Jackson mayoral candidacy increased after Mayor Marion Barry's arrest
last month on a cocaine possession charge and subsequent enrollment in a
substance abuse treatment program.
Legislature considers bills to
improve quality of education
LANSING - Now that voters have snubbed their noses at higher
taxes to generate more money for schools, lawmakers have licked their
wounds and are ready to move with bills aimed at improving educational
Votes are scheduled in the House and Senate this week on bills that are
intended to make existing resources produce better results.
The Senate is slated to vote today on bills requiring schools to devise
improvement plans and annual education reports, while offering a core
curriculum and living up to accreditation standards.
"They're not going to change things overnight, but give us a decade
and they will have a positive impact," Senator Dan DeGrow (R-Port
Huron) said yesterday.
Meanwhile, the House will deal with a more controversial measure
that would allow parents to decide in which school within their district to
enroll their children.
Survey: MI economy falling
DETROIT-The Michigan economy stands a better chance of sinking
than swimming during the next year, said half of the business executives
who responded to a new survey.
The survey released yesterday showed that 49 percent of those re-
sponding believed that a downturn in the state's economy will begin be-
fore Summer. That's up sharply from the 26 percent who had the same
prediction a year ago, the survey said.
"So the shift in attitude is sizable and significant," said Bill
Rauwerdink, a partner with Deloitte Touche, which conducted the survey
with Cram's Detroit Business.
The survey received responses from 739 executives of small and
medium-sized businesses, 15.4 percent of the 4,811 people who received
In the 1990 survey, 23 percent thought the Michigan business climate
during governor James Blanchard's administration had deteriorated, com-
pared with 16 percent last year.
Spider silk's strong as steel
BOSTON - Until recently, the Army has kept quiet about a sci-
entist's success in engineering the gene for spider silk into a bacteria that
produces a fiber stronger than a silkworm's silk- indeed, far stronger than
Now the secret is out.
The military hopes to use the new fabric for bulletproof vests, hel-
mets, parachute cords and other strong, light equipment. And the folks on

New York's Seventh Avenue may want to take notice- silk stockings may
come back, too.
The silk industry has long relied on the costly and time-consuming
farming of silkworms, a cultural and commercial tradition in China and
Japan, where the creatures have been domesticated for centuries.
But the mass production of spider silk may someday mean a decline in
the cost of commercial silk, according to Stephen Lombardi, the 28-year-
old civilian molecular biologist credited with the invention.
