Clinton agrees to sign GOP tax bill
WASHINGTON - President Clinton yesterday agreed to sign a Repub-
lican-sponsored tax-break bill and angrily defended himself in a meeting with
House Democrats against a charge that his reluctance to fight the GOP on all
fronts leaves the impression he lacks conviction.
More than 150 congressional Democrats and some of the President's aides
had recommended he issue the first veto of his presidency to reject legislatio
including a multi-million-dollar tax break for media giant Rupert Murdoc
The break was attached to legislation in the Senate that reinstates and expands
a tax deduction for self-employed workers who buy their own health insur-
ance. It permits them to deduct 25 percent of the cost of the premiums for 1994
and 30 percent this year.
Clinton said he would sign the legislation because of the health-care-
insurance provision. But several Democrats had argued Congress would have
scratched the Murdoch tax break if it had been vetoed.
Some House Democrats saw political potential in vetoing the legislation
and blasting Republicans for giving breaks to friends of House Speaker Newt
Gingrich (R-Ga).

Federal anti-drug money abused

Michigan, anti-drug money paid for
toothbrushes in a health class. In
Washington, it went for a basketball
team party. In a St. Louis suburb, it
helped pay for a school security guard.
In the last eight years, critics con-
tend, taxpayermoney designed to warn
schoolchildren away from drugs and
alcohol has been diverted to a slew of
inappropriate and wasteful things.
"It was a slush fund," said Bob
Peterson, who heads Michigan's Of-
fice of Drug Control Policy.
Even many anti-drug activists and
grassroots supporters agree: A pro-

It's the World's Biggest Seder.
And We Promise You Won't Have to'
Sit at the Kids' Table.
It's the Great North American Pesach Seder! Of course, we won't all sit at one table -
but it just might feel that way as we join together and celebrate our Festival of
Freedom. Attending a Seder enables all of us, and each of us personally, to -
experience anew the Exodus from Egypt.
That's why Chabad is sponsoring Sedorim on campuses
across America, and distributing Free Passover Seder-to-
Go packages for Jewish students unable to attend.
Three-to-four people may share a
Seder-to-Go, which comes
complete with a hand-
made Shmurah

Nancy Reagan era, and recently
praised by President Clinton as cru-
cial for children, was riddled with
waste from the start.
"It really is sad, because we need
this anti-drug message so desperately
right now," said B.J. McConnell, who
helped pick the program's nationally
recognized drug-free schools. "And
now we're risking losing it."
In recent years, McConnell and
other supporters insist, the program

zarre to see these groups coming to-
gether on one issue."
While organizing the rally, SAC
will circulate information about the
code around campus with fliers and
"We have to be making an argu-
ment to the people about why they
should oppose the code and how they
should go about doing it," said Jodi
Masley, an SAC member.
"Our platform is very important.
We've spent a long time trying to figure
out what is going to be the line we get
out to students," van Eeuwijk said.
The rally and march are only a part
of the wider protest movement SRC
is organizing. In addition, SRC plans
to coordinate mass mailings, infor-
mational tables in residence halls and
a lobbying of the regents' meeting.
"In the past, there have been rallies
against the code and (also) lobbying,"
Keenan said. "I think what we're look-
ing at now is really full-court press. It's
everything coming together."
Planning strategies for the re-
gents' meeting, Keenan and MSA
Rep. Jonathan Freeman are working
on drawing up an alternative to the
current code.
"There's a committee investigat-
ing the possibility of another
minimalist code," Keenan said.
"We just have to keep hitting on
the arguments that we've been hitting
on," he said. "This is the last push as
the amendments come up for evalua-
tion and on the 20th we're going to be
cramming two years of information
and two years of research into five-
minute chunks."

Senate Dems debate
$15 billion in cuts
Democrats yesterday rejected a tenta-
tive compromise worked out by lead-
ers of both parties and returned to a
debate on a $15 billion spending-cuts
package on the eve of a two-week
Easter recess.
With time for action running out,
it was uncertain whether the Senate
could complete work on the bill in
time for Republicans to claim credit
for passing a major budget-cutting
initiative before adjournment.
After what was described as a cha-
otic meeting of Democratic senators
in the morning, Minority Leader Tho-
mas A. Daschle (D-S.D.) announced
he had been unable to win approval
for a compromise hammered out late
Wednesday by himself and Majority
Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.).
To entice Democratic support, the
compromise added back $800 mil-
lion for education reform, the na-
tional service corps, drug-free schools,

housing modernization, Indian hous-
ing, and child nutrition, but also cut
twice that amount from other low-
priority programs.
White House pledges
to reform FDA
WASHINGTON -In an apparent
effort to head off a Republican-driven
overhaul of the Food and Drug Admin-
istration, the White House yestezday
proposed a series of agency reforms,
including a pilot program that would
allow outside experts to review certain-
experimental medical devices.
The FDA, which has speeded up
the approval process for breakthrou
and life-saving drugs in recent years,
has been under increasing attack by
GOP lawmakers, the medical device:
industry and conservative think tanks
in recent months for being overly
cautious and sluggish in getting new
devices onto the marketplace. Critics
repeatedly have cited many European
countries, where private-firmreviews
