wealth changed the poor, sugar-farm-
ing island into an industrial success,
and she was forever grateful.
Screaming over salsa music and
honking horns, Rodriguez, said:
"We've affirmed that we're Ameri-
cans - but we're Puerto Ricans, too.
We have our own separate Olympic
teams, our own Puertoricaness.
"See this flag," she said, pointing
to her single-starred red-white-and-
blue Puerto Rican banner. "This is my
flag!"
Political status has been debated
here almost since the moment U.S.
troops captured the Caribbean island
in 1898, ending four centuries of Span-

ish rule.
Celeste Benitez, campaign direc-
tor of the pro-commonwealth Popu-
lar Democratic party, credited the
heavy turnoutof more than 70 per-
cent to a party campaign of calling
20,000 supporters a day to bring out
the vote.
Commonwealth supporters ex-
pressed a reluctance to begin a long
campaign to seek statehood, fearing
closer ties with Washington would
lead to destruction of the island's cul-
ture and threaten the use of Spanish,
the sole language spoken by 60 per-'
cent of the island's 3.8 million resi-
dents.

*Rolins causes a storm

WASHINGTON (AP)-If Ronald
Reagan were still in town, he might turn
to old friend Ed Rollins and say, "There
you go again."
AdecadeafterReaganhad to muzzle
his controversial political aide, Rollins
is again embroiled in controversy, this
time over whether he concocted a
scheme to discourage Blacks from vot-
ing in the New Jersey governor's race.
Rollins last week said he orches-
trated a $500,000 effort to do just that,
and said it was a big factor in Republi-
can Christie Whitman's win over in-
cumbent Democratic Gov. Jim Florio.
Within 24 hours, Rollins found himself
in a familiar position: Under fie for
opening what he admits is a big mouth.
In this case, Rollins quickly recanted
and said he had "left the impression of
something that was not true and did not
Whether he made the whole thing
up or exaggerated a smaller-scale voter
suppression effort remains a mystery,
and has createdpolitical turmoil in New
Jersey.
While all that is sorted out, there are
questions galore in Washington, too,

many of them directed at a suddenly
silent Rollins.
Why would he brag about such a
controversial strategy, whether it hap-
penedornot? Why would he so eagerly
do something sure to impugn his client?
And why would a man who appeared
on the verge of re-establishing his Re-
publican campaign credentials - and
making a ton of money - do some-
thing to throw it all away? "No doubt
this will really hurt his consulting ca-
reer," said Greg Mueller, a conserva-
tive Republican media adviser. "But
they've said Ed Rollins has been dead
before and he always survives."
