The last Laughtracks
brings big headliner

Daily Staff Writer
He who laughs last laughs best.
Those who attended the last
Laughtracks of the year last night
got the best laughs as they watched
the best comedians on campus.
Laughtracks featured: Tom Frank,
Rich Eisen, John Heffron and Jason
Arlington. These students placed the
highest in the Certs' U.S. College
Competition in January.
Frank was the emcee for the
evening, and professional comedian
Tim Allen was the headliner.
Allen appeared in his first Laugh-
tracks about five years ago. When
asked why he was returning he said,
"I don't know. I'm only off for one
day and I find myself working."
Allen, who just flew in from Los
Angeles after completing six con-
certs, is due in Philadelphia tomor-
row for two more.

Frank, the host for the evening,
recently went to Daytona beach to
participate in the finals of the U.S.
College Comedy Competition,
where he took first place.
Frank's father, who attended the
show last night said, "He comes
from a long line of people who are
funny, or at least think they are."
"My dad is very funny, but you
really have to know him to under-
stand his humor," Frank replied.
Kerry Birmingham, chair of
Laughtracks, said this year has been
incredibly successful for Laugh-
tracks. She said Laughtracks moved
its shows from every other week to
once a week due to the its popular-

Lowenstein said. "You can't enforce

"That's why there are insanity pleas"
for people who are unable to predict

with by the advisory committees and

15 die on Lebanon school
bus during faction fighting
BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - A rifle-fired grenade slammed into a school
bus and exploded during Christian factional fighting yesterday, killing 11
schoolchildren and at least four other people.
A police spokesperson said the bus was hit while crossing into Chris-
tian east Beirut in the afternoon. It was bringing children back from
school in south Beirut. The grenade ignited the fuel tank.
"It couldn't be determined who fired the rifle grenade," said the
spokesperson, who cannot be named in line with regulations.
Gen. Michel Aoun's radio station accused gunners of Samir Geagea's
Lebanese forces militia of firing at the bus.
But the pro-Geagea Voice of Lebanon radio station called the hit
Aoun and Geagea have been involved in a bloody power struggle for
control of the 310-square-mile Christian enclave for more than two
months. The showdown has killed 892 people and wounded 2,388 since it
started Jan. 30. Most victims have been civilians.
USSR cuts off Lithuania oil
MOSCOW - The Soviet Union yesterday shut off the supply of oil
from fhe Russian city of Polotsk to Lithuania's only refinery at approxi-

Lithuania is entirely dependent on the Soviet Union for all oil and gas,
and petroleum products are the Soviet Union's most profitable export.
Gorbachev said that unless Lithuania rolled back several laws support-
ing the declaration of independence, he would impose an embargo on key
supplies to the small Baltic republic of 3.8 million people.
Universities attack ROTC
gay men and lesbian policy
WASHINGTON - Major universities are warning the Pentagon that a
military policy barring homosexuals from service is generating pressure
to oust ROTC from campuses.
"The contradiction between the university's principle of non-discrimi-
nation against individuals on the basis of sexual orientation, and the pres-
ence of an ROTC that does not discriminate, cannot exist on the cam-
puses indefinitely," John M. Deutch, provost of the Massachusetts Insti-
tute of Technology said in a letter to Defense Secretary Dick Cheney.

February shows smallest
trade deficit in six years
WASHINGTON - The United States in February recorded its small-
est trade deficit in more than six years, a $6.49 billion imbalance that re-
flected a sharp drop in oil imports, the government reported yesterday.
The Bush administration, which is counting on strong export growth
this year to boost a sluggish domestic economy, hailed the dramatic nar-
rowing of the deficit.
But some private economists cautioned that the improvement could be
short-lived, contending that the trimmer deficit came primarily from a
huge 20 percent drop in oil imports that's not likely to be sustained.
The Commerce Department said February's trade gap was down 30
percent from a $9.32 billion January deficit. It was the best trade showing
since December 1983, when the deficit was $5.68 billion.
Imports fell by 7.6 percent, to $38.12 billion, while U.S. exports to-
taled $31.63 billion, a modest one percent decline from an all-time high
for exports set in January.
U.S. Court bans child porn in
Ohio, other states may follow
WASHINGTON - States may make it a crime to possess or look at
child pornography, even in one's home, the Supreme Court said yesterday
as it imposed new limits on freedom of expression and privacy.
Voting 6-3, the justices upheld an Ohio law aimed at stamping out
such material by punishing those who buy it, not only those who sell it.
Besides Ohio, 18 states already have laws against possessing child
pornography. Ohio's law has been described as the nation's toughest.
Conservatives cheered the decision, saying it gives states a blueprint
for tough legislation.
Beverly LaHaye of Concerned Women for America said every state
should "take advantage of this decision and immediately begin to crack
down on this depraved and contemptible exploitation of children."
But Justice William Brennan, in an opinion dissenting from the court
ruling, said the law is so vague and so sweeping that it might ban the en-
gravings of nude children "that adorn our courtroom."
