concerns."
Sanchez said he would like to see
more ongoing conversation about the
requirement among faculty who are
teaching courses and consistent atten-
tion paid to the requirement."
Another proposed change in the
requirement's management is to "en-
courage departments to see "generic"
course approval to 100-200levelcourses
instead of "instructorspecific"approval."

The committee also said that stu-
dents, especially first-year students, need
more information about the requirement.
To make students more knowledgeable,
the committee recommended a para-
graph in the course syllabus explaining
how a class Fulfills R&E.
"We felt that students don't have a
good idea about the full list of courses
available," Schoem said. "They seem to
want more information about choices."
Schoem said student opinions
should be reflected in R&E decisions.
"We are saying that there should be
student representation, but we do not say
how students should be involved," he
said. There were five students on the
committee thatreviewed the requirement.
Megginson said the committee did
a thorough job. "I think they have come
up with something very useful."
In a written statement to faculty
members, the LSA executive commit-
tee also said it was pleased with the
review committee's recommendations.
"We consider the report of the re-
view committee to be a thorough and
thoughtful response to the charge that
it was given," the executive commit-
tee stated.

tips led to the arrest and conviction of
the rapist," Steinberg said. "The po-
lice received over 1,000 calls identi-
fying more than 730 African Ameri-
can men that had fit the description -
Blair Shelton was one of those men
that was tipped."
An AAPD spokesman could not
be reached for comment yesterday.
Circuit Court Judge Donald Shelton
issued a gag order March 9 prohibit-
ing attorneys, police and witnesses
from discussing the serial rape case
with the press.
During the investigation, police
described the serial rapist as a Black
man with a light complexion, between
25 and 35 years old, approximately 6
feet tall, weighing nearly 170 pounds,
with short hair.
"In October of 1994, police detec-
tives decided to speak with Shelton,"
Steinberg said. "Instead of trying to
reach him at home, (the detective)
went to Blair's place of employment,
T.J. Maxx, to speak with him. Blair
wasn't there; it was his day off.
"So instead the detective pro-
ceeded to talk with his manager and
with other co-employees, and (the
detective) indicated to them that
(Shelton) was a suspect in the serial
rapist investigation. As a result of
these discussions, Blair was fired,"
Steinberg claimed.
Steinberg said that, during the in-
terrogation at the police station, "Blair
started to cry - was very distraught
at being accused of being this heinous
criminal. ... The detective stated if
you want to clear yourself, the only
thing you can do is give ablood sample
for DNA testing."

reluctantly agreeing to have blood

Dollar continues slide, hits record low
TOKYO - The dollar continued its slide yesterday, hitting another record
low against the Japanese yen despite the Clinton administration's aggressive
purchases of dollars in foreign exchange markets to bolster the battered
currency.
Treasury Secretary Robert E. Rubin announced the intervention in a four-
paragraph written statement. Rubin, who specialized in currency trading in his
Wall Street career, repeated his past assurances that the administration4
"believes a strong dollar is in America's interests and we remain committed
to strengthening the fundamentals that are ultimately important to maintain a
strong and stable currency."
Currency traders said the intervention came in two waves, once during
Asian trading in coordination with the Bank of Japan and then later during
trading in New York. In late New York trading, it took 86.13 yen to buy a
dollar, down from 88.55 yen on Friday. At one point yesterday, the dollar hit
a record low of 86 yen.
In Japan, the surging yen, which has gained about 15 percent in value against
the dollar since Jan. 2, sent the Tokyo stock market into a tailspin as concern
mounted that the strong yen may stall Japan's frail economic recovery.

Gunman kills 5, self at
Texas inspection Co.
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - A
disgruntled employee opened fire yes-
terday in the refinery inspection com-
pany where he used to work, killing at
least five people before fatally shoot-
ing himself, police said.
The shooting took place at Walter
Rossler Co., an industrial inspection
company where authorities believe the
gunman was once employed.
Police Chief Henry Garrett said
eight to 10 people were still inside the
business when the gunman entered
through the back door and began shoot-
ing. Two workers escaped by crawling
out the back door, he said.
"We know that everyone he came
in contact with, he did shoot and kill
and then shot himself," Garrett said.
The unidentified gunman opened
fire with at least two pistols, killing
three men and two women before turn-
ing the gun on himself, said Assistant
Police Chief Ken Bung. The identities
of the victims were not immediately

known.
"When we arrived, we learned
preliminarily that a disgruntled em-
ployee walked in and started shoot-
ing. ... We're still trying to piece
together the why of what happened,"
Bung said.
Menendez brothers *
to be retried together
LOS ANGELES -- Lyle and Erik
Menendez will be retried together
before one jury for the 1989 shotgun
slayings of their wealthy parents, a
judge ruled yesterday.
Defense attorneys argued for sepa-
rate trials, saying they feared testi-
mony helpful to one brother might
hurt the other.
Los Angeles County SuperiorCourt
Judge Stanley Weisberg said "the ben-
efits of a joint trial in this case greatly
outweigh the potential prejudice."
The first trial was heard by sepa-
rate juries before a single judge in the
same courtroom, with one jury leav-
ing whenever testimony or evidence
involved only the other brother.

samples taken, Shelton was still ha-

"Blair was also stopped eight sepa-
rate times by the police and interro-
gated as part of the serial rapist inves-
tigation," Steinberg said.
Shelton, on advice from his attor-
ney, declined to speak to the press.

Russia will still sell
reactors to Iran
MOSCOW - Russia yesterday
flatly refused a plea by U.S. Defense
Secretary William J. Perry to call off
a $1 billion deal to sell nuclear reac-
tors to Iran, and Kremlin officials also
warned that arms control is at stake if
Eastern European states are allowed
to join NATO.
The setbacks for U.S. policy to-
ward Russia came despite Perry's
announcement that $50 million more
in disarmament aid is on the way and
his assurances that high-level con-
tacts and help with defense conver-
sion should not be endangered by
disagreements.
But even after a personal appeal
foran annulmentof the Iranian nuclear
pact on the grounds it might under-
mine regional security, Perry was told
by Russian Prime Minister Viktor S.
Chernomyrdin that the sale will go
through.
"I expressed my deep concern
about Russia selling nuclear reactors
to Iran," Perry said after a day re-
plete with contentious meetings. "I
was fearful that this would fuel Iran's
ambition of becoming a nuclear
weapons state - and that would be a
threat to all of the neighbors, includ-

ing Russia."
Perry said he had offered to share
U.S. information supporting its con-
cerns that Iran is trying to build nuclear
weapons.
Investigation widens *
in Haitian death plot
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -The
investigation of a senior Haitian Cabi-
net official implicated in a failed plot
to assassinate a leading Aristide foe
has widened to include her death last
week, U.S. and Haitian officials said
yesterday.
The expanded investigation of In-
terior Minister Mondesir Beaubrun's
role in the plot against Mireille
Durocher - combined with Presi-
dent Jean-Bertrand Aristide's refusal
to suspend, let alone dismiss,
Beaubrun - has deepened a split
between the United States and
Aristide, the sources said.
"This is a serious problem," one
U.S. official said of Aristide's per-
ceived stonewalling of efforts to re-@I
move Beaubrun.
"It makes one wonder if Aristide
really seeks reconciliation here or is
following some other agenda" of seek-
ing revenge against his enemies.
