The vote came despite an over-
whelming majority of crowd mem-
bers opposed to the ad's publication,
said News Editor Candice Driver.
While a majority of newspaper
staffers oppose running the ad, Edi-
tor in Chief Matthew Connally has
said it should be printed, but only
accompanied by an opposing edito-
A three-member review commit-
tee originally approved running the
advertisement, and the decision was
appealed to the Student Publica-
tions Committee. Seymour said the
committee has 11 members: three
professors (two from the Commu-
nications Department); two profes-
sional journalists, appointed by the
university President; and six stu-
dents elected in student government
Driver said the decision to run
the ad was based on a policy that is
"not current, not up to date, and
needs to be rewritten." That policy,
she said, prohibits the publication of
racist or sexist ads, but commits the
paper to publishing political
"The professors on the board, in
my opinion wrongly, interpreted
this as opinion advertising," Driver
Almost no one outside a small
circle of revisionists has publicly
defended the content of the ad. But
some have argued that printing it
has stimulated review of an event
about which many students today
have only sketchy knowledge, while
others say its publication reflects a
commitment to the ideal of free

ing out of the woodwork and raising
its ugly head, and that's what we're
afraid of," she said. "We don't want
anything ugly to happen. But we

Referring to the outpouring of
response that followed the adver-
tisement's publication in the Daily,
Smith said, "Don't forget we live in

"The debate that's going on is

"I think the University's policy

so it puts tremendous pressure on

Democrats brought out Jim
Brady, former press secretary to
President Reagan, in a last-ditch ef-
fort to gain passage of the crime
bill despite Bush's veto threat and
a rebellion by liberals.
"The president is holding a gun
to the head of the Brady Bill," said
Rep. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.),
referring to the five-day waiting
period for gun purchases included
in the crime bill..
The heat of the public rhetoric,
was matched by the sweat in the
back rooms over bills that law-
makers of both parties seemed to
want passed, including:
A $151 billion highway and
mass transit bill that initially was
opposed by the administration but
has been more warmly embraced
since analysts found it had the po-
tential of creating some 2 million
This bill was touted by Dem-
ocrats and many Republicans as
part of the solution to the nation's

would keep the House in session if
Bush gave the word.
"The president either wishes us
to conclude our business and ad-
journ this session of Congress or he
does not. I will abide by his de-
sires," Foley said.

on Capitol Hill, a member of
Bush's Cabinet said it would be a
good idea if lawmakers would stay
around to work on medicine for the

The political maneuvering came
as new poll data showed Bush's
popularity sinking along with
Americans' confidence in the econ-
A New York Times-CBS News
poll showed Bush's approval rat-
ing at 51 percent, down 16 points
from a month ago. Only 8 percent
agreed with the president that
things are getting better economi-
cally; 25 percent approved of his
handling of economic matters.
Bush told an interviewer on
Monday that he is not "wringing
my hands" over the poll numbers.
"People, when they are frus-
trated on an economic sense, they'll
blame Congress, they'll blame the
president, they'll blame the gover-
nor. They'll blame anybody," he
said in an interview with ABC's
WSYX in Columbus, Ohio.
Bush met Monday with Reps.
Robert Michel of Illinois and
Newt Gingrich of Georgia on the
GOP proposal, which would blend

Yesterday, he was trying to dis-
pel the impression that he did not
wholeheartedly back the proposal.
Bush's spokesperson, Marlin
Fitzwater, told reporters that he
did not mean to appear lukewarm a
day earlier when discussing the
proposal, which includes a tax cut
for the middle class.

dents should stay with friends if
they can't go home.
LSA sophomore Kathryn Hanson
of Mendota Heights, Minn., said
Klausner's idea is the next best
thing to going home. "In-state stu-
dents who are friends with those
living out-of-state and not going
home should bring them home,"
Hanson said. Another alternative,
Hanson said, is to volunteer in a
homeless shelter, as a friend of hers
did last year. Hanson, however, said
she plans to go home this year.

Gadarian, of Sudbury, Mass., is also

Hilda Hall, an LSA junior from
Orlando, Fla., also said she sympa-
thizes with students not going
home for the holidays. "Holidays
are important to me because they're
so family oriented. I understand
those who may feel left out because
there have been times when I
couldn't visit my family, like
Easter," Hall said. She said she will
go home for both Thanksgiving and

cause she will be attending the U.S.
