WASHINGTON (AP) -
Democratic governors took over a
White House ceremony yesterday
and pummeled President Bush with
criticism of his economic-revival
plan. Bush demanded to know if
Democrats wanted to raise taxes,
close military bases and lay off
The Democrats accused Bush of
trying to stampede them into sup-
porting his tax and spending plan,
and the March 20 deadline he set for
Congress to enact it.
They accused Bush of resorting
to budget "gimmicks," warned that
the nation was falling into "a sewer
of debt," and called for higher taxes
on the wealthy.
"There are some times and some
places in an election year that we do
have differences," said Colorado
Gov. Roy Romer, incoming chair of
the National Governors' Associa-
"More and more we're beginning
to hear people say this sluggish
economy is turning around," Bush
said, citing drops in interest rates.
Romer said Bush's $1.52 trillion
budget contained $40 billion in
"gimmicks" and said, "We're con-
cerned that some of those may end
up on ourbacks."
"Do you want it to be $100 bil-
lion, and if so, what bases do you
want to close?" the president said
heatedly. "What areas do you want
to shut down? What weapon sys-
tems do you want to knock off right
now? Or do you want to lay off the
White House press secretary
Marlin Fitzwater acknowledged
that reaction to Bush's proposal
"has been mixed."
Gov. John Engler, also present at
the conference yesterday, gave Pres-
1 ident Bush a vote of confidence and
said the best thing Washington can
do for the states is to quit burdening
them with rules and orders.
"I guess if you send enough
money you can live with any rule or
regulation," Engler said in an inter-
view. "But one person gets left out
of the equation and that's the tax-
payer who's supposed to pay for all

Maureen Hartford's father did not help her
carry her things up to the third floor when she
moved into South Quad yesterday.
"I carried it up myself," she said. "It made
me miss my parents."
Harford, the University's new vice presi-
dent for Student Affairs, said she will be living
in the residence hall through Friday night -
eating, sleeping and showering there, then go-
ing to work in the Fleming Administration
Also, Hartford will have the opportunity to
live with a student roommate.
Engineering sophomore Doneka Scott said
she is excited to have Hartford staying with her
for the week.
"My RD knew that my roommate from last
semester was not going to be coming back this
term so she asked me if I would mind having
this opportunity. I thought it was great," she
Scott added that she does not consider liv-
ing with Hartford to be a big deal.
"She'll only be here until Friday, so it will
be brief," she said. "When I tell my friends,
they are usually like, 'Why?' It's not anything
major. I'm excited. She's charming."
Last night, Scott and -lartford ate dinner
together in the South Quad cafeteria and went
to an intramural basketball game.
Hartford said South Quad is similar to the
dorm in which she lived while she was a stu-
dent at the University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hlill. She was a member of the first
class of women admitted to the university as
"It kind of reminds me of the dorms that I
lived in, except that the bathrooms weren't
locked," she said.
Hartford said she is also concerned because
the bathrooms are so far down the hall from
"When you're my age, you would like it to
be closer," she said.
Hartford said she was pleased to see how
clean Scott kept her room.
"It's much nicer than any college dorm
room I've ever stayed in before, in terms of
cleanliness," she said.
And while IIartford is excited to use this,

Hartford added that she does not know if

"I just want to learn as much as I can and
meet as many students as I can," she said.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The
highest levels of ozone-destroying
chemicals ever measured have been
found in the skies over the northern
hemisphere. It is now likely that an
ozone hole will develop this winter
over parts of the United States,
Canada and Europe, National Aero-
nautics and Space Administration
(NASA) scientists said yesterday.
"Everybody should be alarmed
The levels are high enough, he
said, to destroy ozone at the rate of
1 percent to 2 percent a day for brief,
late-winter periods. With conducive
weather conditions, the northern
ozone layer could be depleted by 30
to 40 percent, he said.
Kurylo said the areas of depleted
ozone found by NASA satellites
extended as far south as New Eng-
land and France during parts of Jan-

the human immune system. The nat-
ural radiation can also damage
plants and ocean plankton.

to cause a thinning of the ozone
layer. Thus, by measuring the levels
of these chemicals, scientists can
