WASHINGTON (AP) -
Itresident Bush yesterday reiterated
liis intent to veto a bill that would
extend unemployment benefits, say-
ing he wouldn't allow Democratic
presidential candidates to "set the
agenda for this country."
Bush denounced the $6.4 billion
relief measure to give the unem-
ployed up to 20 extra weeks of ben-
efits as "a budget-busting bill" that
4/ould "further burden a burdened
"I was elected to try to protect
the taxpayer as well as those who
are unemployed," said Bush, reiter-
4ting his support for a less costly
Bush, smarting from Democrats'
jibes at his recent flurry of efforts
to promote Republican domestic
proposals, said he wasn't "going to

dates... set the agenda for this coun-
"They weren't elected to do
something. I was, and I'm going to
keep on trying to do it," Bush said.
Bush went on the warpath
against the jobless bill as he left the
White House for a day devoted
largely to campaigning for GOP
candidates in Pittsburgh and
He ruled out tapping an unem-
ployment trust fund, saying, "we
are using tons of money to pay
Later, at a GOP fundraising lun-
eheon in Pittsburgh for Dick
Thornburgh's Senate campaign, he
said the Democratic congressional
leaders "sense a political issue here
to use next year against all of us."
"They were determined to pass
and ram down my throat a budget-
busting bill," Bush said. "And I
Will veto their approach because it
will further burden all taxpayers."
dveThe president favors an alterna-
filve jobless bill offered by Senate
Minority Leader Bob Dole of
Kansas. Dole's measure would ex-
tend benefits for up to 10 weeks and
pay for it by selling unused radio
frequencies and stepping up debt
' The Democrats would pay for
their bill by borrowing, which in-
* creases the budget deficit.
House Majority Leader Richard
Qephardt of Missouri said on CBS'
"Morning News" that Bush was
"out of touch with what is happen-
ing to ordinary families in America
oday who are struggling, trying to
pay their bills... and they're looking
for these benefits that they earned,
and he is not listening to them."

some people on campus, word spread
and we had enough people to make a
team," said LSA senior Missi
Mercer, the team's project manager.

A woman was attacked in front
of Angell Hall at 11 p.m. last night.
University Department of Safety
and Security (DPSS) Officer Kim
Shelton said she could not make any
comment last night, as the situation
was still under investigation.
"When we got there she was
screaming, 'Somebody help me. He
took all my money,"' said LSA
sophomore Jerilyn Bell.
Bell and about five other resi-
dents from Helen Newberry
Residence Hall heard the woman
scream from their rooms and ran to
the scene with the Housing Security
Officer that was patrolling the
"By the time we had heard her
scream three times, we ran out,"
Bell said. "There were about 20
people standing around. A couple of
guys had taken off after the man."
DPSS officers and University
police arrived a few minutes later.
Bell said one officer immediately
left to catch up with two eyewit-
nesses who were leaving the scene.
LSA sophomore Heather
Henderson, also a Newberry resi-
dent, said the attacker had hit the
woman on the left side of her head.
"She said she couldn't hear out of
her left ear," Henderson said.
An officer said the woman was
going to be taken to University
Hospitals for treatment.
