stronghold, the state where he got 37 percent to spark his
1992 primary run against President Bush. But Dole
vowed not to stumble there this time as he did after Iowa
got him off to a winning start in 1988.
Alexander said the results proved Dole a fragile front-
runner and while congratulating Buchanan, he said the
former White House adviser's protectionist trade views
were "dead wrong." He said Iowa had winnowed the
GOP contest to a three-man battle, as if Forbes did not
exist, and that he was the candidate with the best shot of
beating Clinton.
"Thank you Iowa, on to New Hampshire - let the
future begin!" Alexander said.
Forbes said he was hardly through, insisting fourth
place was "a good springboard into New Hampshire."
But just two weeks ago, Forbes was threatening Dole for
the lead, riding the crest ofa$4million TV ad budget that
shattered all records in the state.
Gramm aides considered pulling resources from New
Hampshire and saving them for South Carolina and the
Southern states to follow.
The Iowa voting took place in 2,142 precinct caucuses
and closed a nearly year-long campaign in the state. It
appeared that turnout would fall short of 100,000, below
the 1988 total and way below the record 130,000 pre-
dicted by state Republican leaders. .
Among caucus-goers, Buchanan was the clear choice
of those who described themselves as very conservative
ormembers ofthe religious right. In an entrance poll, one
fifth of the caucus-goers said they settled on their choice
in the last three days; of those, Alexander and Buchanan
were the clear beneficiaries.
Dole was the overwhelming choice of Iowa's elderly
voters, and caucus-goers said Dole' age - he is 72 -
would make no difference in his ability to be president.
Iowans were split on the flat tax, Forbes' premiere issue,
over the existing system - and even the flat-taxers
preferred Dole and Buchanan to the millionaire pub-
The caucuses were the first of three steps in allocating
Iowa's 25 delegates to the Republican National Conven-
tion. An AP analysis of the straw poll results showed a
mixed bag- Dole's support was likely to translate into

Pres. set to give Greenspan 3rd term
WASH INGTON - Alan Greenspan has been whispering economic advice
into the ears of Republican presidents going back to Nixon, but that doesn't mean
he can't be Bill Clinton's man.
Indeed, the Democratic president appears set to nominate Greenspan fora third
four-year term as Federal Reserve chairman in large part because of his Repub-
lican credentials.
The White House insisted yesterday that the president had received no reco,-
mendations yet from his National Economic Council, but administration officials,
who spoke on condition of anonymity, said there were no other candidates.
Some officials had expected the Greenspan appointment last week. But they
said the announcement was delayed because of trouble filling two other vacancies
on the seven-member Fed board.
The president had been expected to nominate New York investment banker
Felix Rohatyn as vice chairman of the Fed to replace Alan Blinder, who resigned
last month to return to Harvard.
But Rohatyn's proposed nomination appeared in trouble yesterday, with Sen.
Connie Mack (R-Fla.), a member of the Banking Committee and chairman of e
Joint Economic Committee, leading a charge to derail it.

Sen. Phil Gramm speaks with the media yesterday after appearing on a live radio program at Who Radio In Des
Moines, Iowa.

eight delegates, compared to six for Buchanan, five for
Alexander, three for Forbes, two for Gramm and one for
After New Hampshire comes a five-week march
through 30 states, with 70 percent of the GOP conven-
tion delegates to be chosen by the time California holds
its March 26 primary. That breakneck pace puts a
premium on momemtum and money. Buchanan and
Alexander said they were funded at least through New
Hampshire and would immediately scramble to replen-
ish their campaign accounts.

Dole aides conceded the race was too close for com-
fort, but predicted Dole would march to the nomination.
"The bottom line for Republicans is winning back the
White House and when they look at this field, Bob Dole
is clearly the one," said Dole spokesperson Nelson
For Buchanan, Iowa was a sweet surprise. Just a week
ago he had modest goals here, but used his upset of
Gramm in last week's Louisiana caucuses to make the
case to social conservatives that he was a stronger
candidate than Gramm-against both Dole and Clinton.

FDA clears sale of
baldness drug
Americans will be able to buy the
hair-growth drug Rogaine by spring
without seeing a doctor first.
The Food and Drug Administra-
tion decided yesterday that Rogaine
can be sold in drugstores alongside
shampoos and hair colorings, making
it the only medically proven drug to
fight baldness available without a pre-
But while the move means people
can buy a little hope against hair loss
for about $30 a month, the FDA
warned that not everybody should.
Some 40 million men and 20 mil-
lion women suffer hair loss, most the
hereditary form commonly known as
male pattern balding. This is the only
hair loss helped by Rogaine, which
has been sold by prescription since
Even for those people, however,
Rogaine doesn't always work, said
FDA spokesperson Ivy Kupec. It
helps about 25 percent of men and 20

percent of women to very gradually
grow back moderate amounts of hair,
mostly on the very top of the head.
They must keep using Rogaine in-
definitely to keep the new hair.
Dentists say new
eye muscle found
WASHINGTON - Two dentists in
Baltimore believe they have founda"pre-
viously undescribed" structure of human
anatomy - a muscle about 1 1/2 inches
long that runs from behind the eye socket
to the inside ofthe jawbone. It appears to
assist in chewing. The anatomists have
found it in everybody in who they've
"We kept saying this can't
undescribed - it's too large," said
Hack, who teaches at the dental school at
the University of Maryland at Baltimore.
"Plus we said, We're dentists, not anato-
mists. Let's go back to the (anatomical)
literature and try to find it."
So far, however, neither Hack nor
Gwendolyn Dunn, a colleague at the den-
tal school, has found any mention of the
muscle in anatomy books.

And it's all an accident.
In 1972, Democrats started the cau-
cuses as part of nominating process
reforms in the wake of the chaotic
1968 Chicago convention. Anti-war
activists that year gave George
McGovern a slightly better showing
than expected.
Not many people noticed, except
Jimmy Carter.
The obscure Georgia governor used
the caucuses the next time around to
get an early win in the Democratic
contest, and the momentum that pro-
pelled an unknown to the nomination.
The pattern was set, and has just
grown stronger.
These days, TV cameras from New
York and Japan crowd into some of
the 2,142 caucuses along with the
voters. Attendance ranges from just a
handful to several hundred at each
"Everyone mills around for a while
while they check your names," said

Jeanne Samame of Des Moines. "Then
you take the vote, and then you divide
into your groups of supporters and
talk about what your platform is."
The vote is secret, written on a
piece of paper. In some places, though,
crowds of reporters watch as voters
write, then rush out to report the re-
sults of what is essentially a non-
binding straw poll.
Many voters go home at that point.
But others linger on to finish the
party's business. They elect precinct-
level delegates to go on to county
meetings. There, congressional dis-
trict meetings are set, and there, the
state convention members, picked.
Only at the state meeting this sum-
mer will delegates to the national
nominating convention in San Diego
be picked.
Which means that last night was
really "kind of a scientific straw poll,
a physical poll," said Darrell Kearney,
Iowa chairman for Sen. Bob Dole (R-
Still, Kearney said, "a win is a win.
In my book, when you get more votes
than the next guy, it's a win."

Israel to increase
pre-election security
JERUSALEM -Fearful that a ter-
rorist attack inside Israel might hand
upcoming elections to the opposi-
tion, the Labor-led government
stepped up security measures yester-
day in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Israel's Army banned the 2 million
Palestinian residents of the territo-
ries from entering Israel "for an in-
definite period." A military spokes-
person said the order was issued for
security reasons.
The closure expanded an order is-
sued yesterday morning ordering Pal-
estinian residents of the West Bank
town of Ramallah to stay inside the
city limits and ordering Israelis to
stay away from the town.
Israel Television said that the in-
telligence services had reports of a
plan by militants in Gaza to carry out
a car bomb attack in central Israel,
timed to coincide with the Feb. 19
end of the Muslim holy month of
Ramadan, and the end tomorrow of
40 days of mourning for Yehyia

Ayyash, the Islamic militant who was
killed when a booby-trapped cellular
phone exploded in his hands.
Clinton, aid among
Noble peace prize.
OSLO, Norway -President Clinton
and his peace emissary for Bosnia, Ri-
chard Holbrooke, are among 103 people
and organizations so far nominated for
this year's Nobel Peace Prize.
Imprisoned Chinese dissident and
human rights activist Wei Jingsheng
received multiple nominations.
In keeping with the pi4
committee's tradition of secrecy, the
non-voting secretary, Geir Lundestad,
refused comment yesterday on the
names of candidates.
He would say only that 82 individu-
als and 21 organizations had been
nominated as of yesterday, but pro-
posals postmarked by the Jan. 31
nomination deadline were continuing
to arrive in Oslo and still could be
