stump in South, Midwest,

The Washington Post
WASHINGTON - Sen. Bob Dole
Kan.) cast the fight for the Republi-
can presidential nomination yesterday
as a battle between "the mainstream and
the extreme," as GOP officials across
the country began to gauge the impact of
Pat Buchanan's successful populist con-
servative crusade on the party's emerg-
ing coalition.
Buchanan car-
ried his campaign -
'et the South and
t Midwest yes-{
terday, including a
stop at Mount
Rushmore. Still
riding the wave of
euphoria from his
breakthrough vic-
tory in New Hamp-
shire on Tuesday,=
he called on Dole Dole
d the political
ablishment in Washington to "stop
the panicky name-calling, behave like
adults" and "debate issues."
"This campaign is about handing
down to the next generation ... the kind
of great and good and wonderful coun-
try my parents gave to me," he said.
Dole, who left New Hampshire for
the Dakotas, conceded to reporters he
needs to sharpen his performance as a
ndidate, but quickly took aim at
Schanan as an intolerant isolationist

who would divide the country and dam-
age the Republican Party.
"This is a race between the main-
stream and the extreme," he said. "It's a
race between hope ... and fear. It's about
freedom and it's about intolerance. It's
about maintaining the Republican Con-
gress. This is deadly serious business."
Former Tennessee Gov. Lamar
Alexander, heartened by another strong,
third-place finish, sought to keep alive his
claim that he is better suited than Dole to
blunt Buchanan's campaign surge as he
campaigned in South Carolina. He railed
repeatedlyagainst"Buchananism,"which
he defined as a dangerous amalgam of
left-wing policies wrapped in the lan-
guage of conservatism.
"It is not a conservative set of poli-
cies," Alexander said. "It ought not to
be the Republicans' set of policies."
Buchanan's victory Tuesday jarred
Republican officials, even those who
long have regarded Dole as a fragile
frontrunner for the nomination. But few
displayed publicly the panic that
Buchanan had predicted would take
hold among the party establishment by
his emergence in the GOP contest.
Instead, most said they did not be-
lieve - or could not bring themselves
to believe - that Buchanan would
emerge from the coming battle as the
Republican nominee. They argued that,
while Buchanan could roll up his share
of delegates in upcoming primaries, he

could not win a head-to-head battle
with either Dole or Alexander.
But Bradley Keena, a spokesperson
for the conservative Free Congress
Foundation, predicted the Republicans
faced a long-term struggle pitting the
GOP establishment against anti-Wash-
ington, anti-establishment forces and
said Buchanan's campaign represents

only the first wave of that battle.
"If Republicans nominate Dole and
an establishment vice president, I think
they will end up alienating a whole
group of voters," Keena said, adding,
"If they gang up on Buchanan and end
up alienating the vast support behind
his issues, then that is a combination
that spells doom for Republicans in

November."
Kenneth Dubersteina Republican lob-
byist and voice for the party establish-
ment, said the consensus is that Dole will
win the nomination but that it will re-
quire tough slogging ahead.

'U' resear cher
totest 'kite
?ind string'
By Alice Robinson
Daily Staff Reporter
Even scientists have bad luck sometimes. But good ones
try again.
Four years ago, Engineering Prof. Brian Gilchrist collabo-
rated with NASA on an experiment modeled after Ben
Franklin's legendary discovery.
*A satellite and copper-and-nylon cable replaced the infa-
mous kite and string. The attempt to link the shuttle with the
satellite was unsuccessful due to a last-minute bolt which
caused the cable's reel mechanism to jam after takeoff.
This afternoon the Tethered Satellite System will get
another chance.
"We're as ready as we'll ever be," Gilchrist said.
The space shuttle Columbia will begin a 13-day mission at
3:18 p.m. from Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla.
A main goal of the mission will be to test the effectiveness of
the 13-mile-long cable linking the shuttle to the satellite.
The mission could have a lasting impact on simultaneous
$asurements used in future space journeys and the develop-
ment of space stations.
The scientists hope to discover more information on the
electrodynamics of the ionosphere, the part of the earth's
atmosphere where electrically charged gases and magnetic
fields are produced.
. Charged electrons will travel in the cable from the satellite to
the shuttle, where they will be released back into the ionosphere.
"We are very proud of them," said Engineering Prof.
Tamas Gombosi. "This is really great for the University."
Although the shuttle blasts offtoday, the satellite itself will
t be deployed until Saturday afternoon.
Gilchrist stressed last night that the team of scientists were
much more prepared this time around.
"They've had to assess the problems of the past," said
Engineering Prof. Thomas Donahue. "I feel confident it will
succeed this time."
The mission is a joint collaboration between Italian and
American scientists.

Serbs flee
as Muslims
look to take
control
Thousands of Serbs
leave suburbs in
voluntary "ethnic
cleansing"
Los AngelesTimes
VOGOSCA, Bosnia-Herzegovina-
The scene yesterday on a snowy road
leading out of this Sarajevo suburb pre-
sented a timeless snapshot of the Balkan
war, a fleeting moment of suffering,
helplessness and fearthat has been played
out countless times in this country.
A dented, decades-old station wagon
sat limp on the roadside, packed with
old flour sacks containing the earthly
possessions of the Molevic family.
Nebojas Molevic and his father-in-
law frantically fiddled beneath the hood,
wet snowflakes clinging to their eye-
brows. In the front seat of another rick-
ety car, Molevic's wife stared blankly
from behind a foggy window, their in-
fant son balanced on her knees.
"I am leaving two farms behind,"
said the older man, his ruddy face too
hardened to show his fear but his heart
too broken to hide his pain. "We must
not wait. Nobody is coming to help us."
The Molevic family is among the
thousands of Bosnian Serbs - most
poor and desperate - fleeing the Serb-
populated suburbs of the Bosnian capi-
tal in a voluntary "ethnic cleansing" in
-advance of the towns' gradual rever-
sion to the control of the Muslim-led
Bosnian government this week.
The evacuation is especially trou-
bling because it comes during peace-
time and despite an effort by NATO
and other international organizations to
prevent it.
"We all expected this would be
hard," said Michael Steiner, deputy to
the U.N. high representative for Bosnia,
who oversees civilian provisions of
the Dayton, Ohio, peace accord. "If
they choose not to live under Muslim
rule, what can we do? We cannot force
them to stay."
The exodus, the dimensions ofwhich
are still unclear, has been spurred by a
propaganda barrage by Bosnian Serb
authorities, apparently bent on dashing
longstanding international hopes ofpre-
serving Sarajevo as a symbol of multi-
ethnicity in a country largely segre-
gated by war.
In the war of words for the minds of
50,000 Bosnian Serbs still living on the
outskirts of the city, Bosnian Serb au-
thorities appear to be scoring a major
victory.

Ash Wednesday
John Greenburg, an LSA senior, gives ashes yesterday during Ash Wednesday mass at St. Mary's Student Parish. The sign of the cross is
already on his forehead. The ashes are prepared from the palms blessed on Palm Sunday the previous year, symbolizing penitence and
mourning. As the ashes are placed on the head, the priest says, "Remember, man, that thou art dust, and unto dust thou shalt return." Ash
Wednesday is the start of the Christian holiday Lent, which is the season to repent for sins. Many Catholics during this period sacrifice
something in their lives to symbolize the sacrifice of Jesus.

] U' po. takes research into classrooms

By Cathy Boguslaski
Daily Staff Reporter
Prof. Elliot Soloway researches and
teaches electrical engineering and com-
puter science. But some of his most
important research occurs not in a Uni-
versity laboratory, but in a public school
classroom.
Soloway's research focuses on improv-
ing classroom education in science
through an integrated curriculum and
extensive use of computers. The new

can be books, and another can be the
Internet," Soloway said.
"We want to deal with authentic ques-
tions, things that are meaningful to kids,"

Soloway said.
"You can teach
kids about the dif-
ferent states of'
matter or differ-
ent kinds of en-
ergy, or you can
ask them, 'Where

something else,"' Soloway said.

term, and they have
a purpose other
