he felt aspects of it were positive
and that the management of the
Union is working with the BGA.
"In a way it does help us. There's
less for us to worry about since we
don't have to have someone checking
IDs for the party. And I do under-
stand the need for safety.
"But the negative side is the way
the security guards treat people on
the way in, and the way it looks, be-
cause people don't want to go into a
building where they feel like
they're under constant surveil-
lance," Green said
Green said representatives of the
BGA had spoken to the Union man-
agement and the Administration
about making some changes in the
policy. He said even minor changes
like having the security guards at
the door wear jackets instead of uni-
forms and replacing the table block-
ing the door with an easel would
greatly improve the atmosphere.
"If they looked more like hosts,
people wouldn't mind it so much as
when they look like military pa-
trol," he said.

had negative aspects and said he
hoped to iron these out. He said he

"We had an event the same night
as the BGA and we noticed that
many of our members could get in
without having their IDs checked,
while most of the people there for
the BGA function did have them
checked," he said.
Oko said GEO opposed the policy
at its subsequent membership meet-
ing, and that the organization
doesn't plan to change its position

WASHINGTON (AP) - After
a brawl that left scant joy in vic-
tory, President Bush vowed yester-
day to push for changes in the Sen-
ate's confirmation process, while
Democrats said he must share the
blame for the spectacle that
Clarence Thomas' nomination be-
"There's general agreement
around the country and certainly in
the Senate that the present process is
not fair," Bush said, a day after
Thomas' confirmation to the
Supreme Court, by two votes to
spare, ended one of the most bitter
and inflammatory nomination bat-

White House this week to take an

Bush said he would present his
ideas on changing the process fairly
soon. "I owe the people my observa-
tions and more importantly some
suggestions to improve the pro-
cess," Bush said.
"We need to strengthen the ad-
vice, as well as the consent process,"
said Sen. Sam Nunn (D-Ga.). "When
senators have legitimate concerns
about nominees, the president must
take those concerns seriously, not
simply take the position that each
nominee warrants unqualified sup-
port for political reasons."
"Very little advice on this nom-
inee was sought by the White
House, and that's why they got very
little consent," Sen. John Breaux
(D-La.) said. "I think we have to im-
prove both ends of those processes
in order to improve the system."
Sen. Paul Simon (D-Ill.) intro-
duced a non-binding "sense of the
Senate" resolution saying that the
president should conduct informal,
bipartisan consultations with some
members of the Senate before mak-
ing future selections. It urges that
the president "keep philosophical
balance in mind" in deciding on the

Committee that conducted three
days of public hearings into the de-
tails of the sexual harassment

A neighboring resident who re-
quested anonymity said she "knew
there was going to be a problem
when (Ilene) first moved in. Three
weeks later (Joseph) showed up
with a tether on his ankle like he had
just been let out of prison."
The neighbor noticed obvious
problems between the two. "She
was petrified of him and threw him
out of here a few times. I think there
was a problem with drugs. There
were cars coming and going at all
hours of the night," she said.
However, the neighbor said she
believes that Ilene "was a good
mother to Philip. She had gone
through a lot of grief with him."
Residents of the subdivision have
been forced to come to terms with
