illness, a federal court jury yesterday convicted Francisco Martin Duran of

efits, subsidies, salaries and the pur-
chase of goods and services.

apparent shift on gays in the military,
House Speaker Newt Gingrich said
yesterday that Congress likely would
leave the current don't-ask-don't-tell
policy in place if it survives court
Gingrich said the Republican Con-
gress would return to a stricter policy
only if the Clinton administration
regulations were judged unconstitu-

the Clinton policy remained in place
after court review, "that will not be an
issue that you'll see necessarily very
much legislative action on."
