Dems distance campaigns
from Clinton, incumbents
Los Angeles Times
WASHINGTON - When New
York Rep. Louise M. Slaughter's
Republican challenger assails her as a
tax-and-spend liberal, she changes the
Instead of discussing national is-
sues, the hard-pressed Rochester,
N.Y., Democrat points to the rewards
she has helped her town win from
Washington: an airport expansion, a
new high-tech research facility and
,harbor improvements to protect
against the ravages of Lake Ontario.
The contest between Slaughter and
GOP challenger Renee Davison illus-
trates the head-on collision between
the overall political strategies being
pursued by the two major parties in
the November election, in which
nearly 500 House and Senate seats
are at stake.
Mindful of the widespread voter
discontent over national issues, Re-
publicans are trying to make this cam-
paign a referendum on the party in
power. Democrats, putting their faith
in the old axiom that all politics is
local, are striving to define each race
in terms of what it means for each
individual political battleground.
"Nationally there's an anti-incum-
bent mood, and a mood against Presi-
dent Clinton," says Slaughter's me-
dia consultant, Joe Trippi. "If you get
enmeshed in that, you lose."
To avoid debacle, many Demo-
cratic candidates are trying to dis-
tance themselves from Clinton and
his sagging poll ratings.
But Republicans have no inten-
tion of allowing that to happen. GOP
candidates will find ways to "attach
the local incumbent to President
Clinton," predicts pollster Bill
McInturff, whose firm counsels about
60 GOP House and Senate candi-
Democratic strategists contend
that the Republicans are exaggerating
Clinton's impact on the election.
"I don't think this election is about
the president per se," says pollster
Mark Mellman, who counsels 18 can-
didates around the country. "Clinton
is only part of the background for the
campaign. In the foreground are the
individual candidates, and the results
will depend on how people evaluate
them against each other."

Los Angeles Times
EUREKA, Calif. - Joan Chang
sits at her desk in the front row, listen-
ing carefully and taking notes. With
her baseball cap and book bag, she
looks like any 8-year-old student -
except this is college calculus and she
is here against the law.
Joan, like her brother and two sis-
ters, is trying to get a college educa-
tion without the bother of graduating
from third grade. But this semester,
she has been officially barred from
community college and threatened
with arrest if she keeps attending class.
In her second year at College of
the Redwoods, the pint-sized scholar
has become a college drop-in, ex-
plaining that she loves calculus but
didn't much care for her year in el-
ementary school. "The kids were
mean," she recalled.
The case of the four Chang chil-
dren, who range from ages 6to 13, has
touched off a heated debate over what
is the best education for brilliant
youngsters - studying differential
equations or learning how to get along
with children their own age.
John Chang, a Taiwanese immi-
grant, is determined to get his chil-
dren a college education. He was once
arrested and hauled off campus in
handcuffs. College administrators,
however, contend that cash-starved
community colleges should not take
the place of the beleaguered public
"This is a test case of statewide
policies restricting enrollment in com-
munity colleges," said Cedric A.
Sampson, College of the Redwoods
president. "The bottom line is, we're
full up and we can't become an alter-
native delivery system for K-12."
Neither of the Changs has a job or
other visible means of support. They
devote themselves to teaching their
children at home. For the most part,
the youngsters keep to themselves.
But there is no argument that they
are bright. The two older children
began their college studies by the age
of 10; recent IQ tests of the two
younger children place them in the
gifted to genius range.
The Changs were so intent on plac-
ing all four children in community
college that the family moved here
from Chico after nearby Butte Col-
lege refused to admit the three girls.
At first College of the Redwoods,
just south of Eureka, accepted all four
children. They completed at least three
courses in academic subjects during
the fall 1993 semester, including Joan,
who got an A in algebra at age 7.
This year, the college admitted the
two older children - 10-year-old
Mimi and 13-year-old Matthew -
because they had shown their ability
to study at the college level.
Sampson, however, refused to re-
admit Joan and her 6-year-old sister,
Karen, this fall. He said he had not
seen proof that the youngsters met the
college's entrance standards or that
the local school district could not pro-
vide the courses they need.
Last month, when Joan and Karen
began attending math classes any-
way, Sampson sent the girls letters
warning them they could be arrested
"This is a very closed society,"
Chang said. "They worry that my
children are doing better than their
