policies as one that needs to be con-
vinced. I don't approach the given as
the only way to do things. I see my
task as questioning," he said.
In addition, McNamara wants to
address the rise in student tuition. "I
am very worried about the continued
dependence on tuition as making up
for the university deficit," he said.
SACUA chair-elect George
Brewer said he looks forward to work-
ing with next year's SACUA mem-
bers. "I think we elected an excellent
slate. This election has increased the
ability of SACUA to operate as a
leaderof faculty governance," he said.
Outgoing SACUA member
Charles Smith said he also feels con-
fident in the new members.
"I think that with the new members,
SACUA will be an even stronger advo-
cate for the faculty because the people
who were elected have all participated
well in faculty governance," he said.
SACUA chair Jean Loup said that
any of the seven candidates would
have comprised a good group. "It is of
course nice to see a woman elected,"
Some faculty members said that
although four members will change,
the composition and goals of the body
will remain almost the same.
"I think they will be comparable to
this SACUA which is concerned with
governance, grievances, and tenure,"
SACUA member Mark R.
DeCamp agreed that SACUA would
be very similar. He currently holds
a one-year term and was not re-
"I don't think there will be much
of a change. The people who were
appointed to regular terms are in a
sense replacing those that are there
now," he said. "Us guys from the
small places like Kinesiology and
Dearborn got lost in the shuffle."
Loup said that to accomplish their
goals, the group members must work
together. "I think it is important to
listen to opinions and refrain from
coming too quickly about what the
right thing to do is. There are a range
of opinions, and it is important to not
act on the first opinion."
Death toll in nerve
gas attack rises to 8
.- ."7 r V
TOKYO (AP) - Police seized
five packages of nerve gas that spread
death yesterday through Tokyo's
crowded subway system as they
hunted for clues in a chilling new
chapter in urban terrorism: the use of
By this morning, the attack had
killed eight people and sickened nearly
4,700 others. There were no credible
claims of responsibility, but there was
growing speculation that the incident
may have been politically motivated.
Police have identified a possible
suspect and intend to question him as
soon as he recovers from the effects
of the nerve gas, Japanese television
and newspapers reported today.
Gas spread through the subway
during the morning rush hour yester-
day, leaving passengers vomiting and
in convulsions in stations across cen-
tral Tokyo. All three of the lines hit
ran under Kasumigaseki, the district
at the heart of Japan's government.
The authorities blamed sarin, a
nerve gas developed by the Nazis
during World War II. The same gas
was blamed for seven unsolved deaths
in the central Japanese city of
Matsumoto in June.
The threat of chemical or biologi-
cal terrorism has worried governments
increasingly in recent years, as the
technology became more widespread
and easy to obtain.
"Terrorists have taken that step
across the threshold into the use of
weapons of mass destruction," said
Kyle Olson of the Chemical and Bio-
logical Arms Control Institute in Al-
Olson studied the Matsumoto poi-
soning and warned in February that it
could happen again.
"I began to reach the conclusion that
this was a dress rehearsal of some type,
that someone was trying to get the hang
of using a new weapon," he told Asso-
ciated Press Television yesterday.
Several media reports said that
police had identified one man hospi-
talized for nerve gas poisoning as a
possible suspect. Police refused to
confirm or deny the report.
The reports said several people
saw the man place a plastic bag
wrapped in newspaper on a train.
When he got off at Kodenmacho sta-
tion, a passenger kicked the object
onto the platform and it began to emit
Buchanan opens presidential bid
MANCHESTER, N.H. -Patrick J. Buchanan yesterday joined the grow-
ing list of candidates seeking the 1996 Republican presidential nomination
with a pugnacious, "America first" message of economic
nationalism, restored U.S.military muscle and apledge to
wage and win a cultural war.
Buchanan, the conservative commentator whose 1992
challenge to George Bush helped plant the seeds of the
former President's defeat, claimed that, unlike his rivals
for the nomination, he is not a "leap-year conservative."
Buchanan said many of the issues he campaigned on,
such as affirmative action and immigration, have been
adopted by other presidential candidates. "We may have lost
that nomination, my friends, but you and I won the battle for Buchanan
the heart and soul of the Republican Party," he said.
Like 1992, Buchanan said, "This campaign is about an America that once
again looks out for our people and our country first."

Bosnian truce near
collapse after worst
fighting since Jan. 1
ZAGREB, Croatia-The faltering
truce in Bosnia-Herzegovina teetered
near collapse yesterday when heavy
fighting broke out in central and east-
ern Bosnia, killing and injuring dozens
and dashing hopes that spring will bring
a thaw in the protracted civil war.
Officials with the U.N. Protection
Force said early-morning fighting in
and around the towns of Travnik and
Tuzla was the worst since the two sides
launched a four-month cease-fire on
Jan. 1, as part of a peace initiative by
former U.S. President Carter.
The battles came after more than a
week of increasingly deadly flare-ups
in the capital of Sarajevo, including
sniper fire that ripped a hole in an
airplane carrying the U.N. special en-
voy to the former Yugoslavia. Three
people were killed in sniper attacks
over the weekend, and at least a dozen
have been gunned down since the cease-

Christopher Gunnes. "We are at the

"This is a sad, sad day for the city
when somebody would desecrate a hal-
lowed symbol of the 1950s and 1960s,'
said Sgt. Richard Murphy said.
"It's really hard to keep a straight
face when you talk about it," he said.
"We've been trying to put him to-
gether again like Humpty Dumpty. I
think he looks pretty good for a guy
who's been cut up."

Afghanistan's Taliban militia of Mus-
lim students has been routed from its
stronghold near Kabul, ensuring Presi-
dent Burhanuddin Rabbani will not
resign today as required by a U.N.
As a result of the most decisive4
victory by pro-Rabbani forces in
Afghanistan's 3-year-old civil war,
the president now controls all of Kabul
and its outskirts for the first time since
the Communist government was over-
thrown in 1992.
When Mahmoud Mestiri, the U.N.
special envoy, announced the peace
proposal last month, he said he had a
firm pledge from Rabbani to leave of-
fice by March 21. But Mestiri's po-O
litical adviser said yesterday there is
no chance of that happening now.
