GOP prepares for key S. Carolina primary
os Angeles Times
COLUMBIA, S.C.-Their race now
deep in chaos, the Republican presi-
dential candidates flocked here yester-
day for Saturday's primary --a contest
looming as a defining moment in their
struggle for the nomination.

Buchanan last week in New Hamp-
shire, the struggling front-runner badly
needs a victory in Saturday's primary
here to regain his equilibrium.
With that in mind, Dole campaigned at
a new BMW plant in Greer, S.C., high-
lighting the fruits of international trade.
By contrast, Buchanan was at an aban-
doned furniture-finishing plant in
Clearwater, S.C., reminding voters oflost
jobs. Meanwhile, Forbes campaigned in
Pittsburgh and Lamar Alexander was in
Tennessee and Georgia.
The four will participate in a noon
debate today here in the state capital.
With all the unpredictable twists and
turns the GOP race has already taken,
few analysts still are willing to declare
any single contest decisive. But a defeat
here might be a mortal blow to Dole,
who has long viewed South Carolina as
his "firewall" - the fortress where he
could either seal the nomination, or
make his last stand.
Even though South Carolina offers
only a modest prize of37 delegates, the
stakes, in fact, are significant here for
all the candidates.
As the first Southern state to vote,
South Carolina's decision will rever-
berate through a region that has become
the cornerstone of
the new Republi-
can political coali-
tion - and will
dominate the pri-
mary calendar for
the next two weeks.

and Forbes trailing. "Buchanan is the
competition here," says Warren
Tompkins, a local political strategist
who is directing Dole's effort here and
across the South. Internal polling for
both Dole and Alexander has shown
Dole ahead, but operatives on all sides
caution that support is volatile.
With both a powerful religious conser-
vative community and a thriving subur-
banmiddle class-aswell asan economy
experiencing boththeprosperity and pain
associated with globalization - South
Carolina is a key test.
After his disappointing third-place
finish in Arizona, Buchanan is target-
ing his twin message of economic pro-
tectionism and cultural conservatism at
disaffected blue-collar workers in the
state's declining textile industry and
the burgeoning ranks of religious con-
servatives. Last night, Buchanan turned
out a huge crowd at an evangelical
church outside Spartanburg.

New census plan
unveiled by bureau
WASHINGTON -The Census Bu-
reau yesterday unveiled its plan to con-
duct a "fundamentally different" cen-
sus in the year 2000, acknowledging
that the 1990 headcount cost too much
and missed too many people, particu-
larly minorities and the poor.
Federal officials said their new plan
would rely on a range of new technolo-
gies, betteraddress lists, a stronger mar-
keting campaign and a redesigned form
that asks fewer questions and explains
why the information is necessary.
"The upcoming census is historic,"
said Alice Rivlin, director of the Office
of Management and Budget. "It's prob-
ably the most difficult one that has ever
The current atmosphere of fiscal con-
straint in Congress could make it more
difficult for the Census Bureau to re-
ceive adequate funding, Rivlin ex-
plained. She also pointed to the current
atmosphere of mistrust in government
that makes it less likely people will take
the time to complete their census ques-
tionnaire and return it.
The census must be conducted "in

Trade deficit reaches 7-yearhigh
WASHINGTON - The United States suffered a $111.04 billion trade
deficit last year, the worst in seven years. The deficit with Mexico was a
record, a showing certain to energize foes of the administration's free-trade
The Commerce Department's final tally on trade for 1995 showed the deficit
with China also climbed to a record. But the imbalance with Japan, while still the
largest for any country, shrank for the first time in four years.
The deficit in goods and services represented an increase of 4.5 percent frond
1994 gap of $106.21 billion. In goods alone, the imbalance was even worse,
surging to an all-time high of $174.47 billion.
The administration, which has made trade the centerpiece of its foreign policy
strategy, sought to play down the rising deficit and focus instead on the advantages
the U.S. economy was receiving from rising exports.
Laura Tyson, head of the president's National Economic Council, U.S. Trade
Representative Mickey Kantor and Commerce Secretary Ron Brown all held
briefings to showcase the fact that for the first time in years, the growth rate in
exports exceeded the percentage increase in imports.

FBI director requests
more legal power
WASHINGTON -- FBI Director
Louis Freeh yesterday asked Congress to
give the bureau greater legal authority to
counter economic espionage against to
United States by both friendly nations
and traditional adversaries.
Freeh said the FBI is now investigat-
ing 800 cases of economic espionage
against the United States, double the
number ofjust two years ago. He warned
that the intelligence services of at least
23 nations now make American indus-
try a prime target of their espionage,
and said that the steep rise "presents a
new set of threats to our national sec-
rity" in the post-Cold War world. 4
Economic and technological
globalization, Freeh added, have com-
bined "to increase both the opportuni-
ties and motives for conducting eco-
nomic espionage." As a result, the FBI
has stepped up its counterintelligence
efforts to thwart foreign spy operations
in California's Silicon Valley and other
high-tech hot spots.

from Prince Charles
said last night she has agreed to a divorce
from Prince Charles, the heir to the Brit-
ish crown, ending a marriage that began
nearly 15 years ago as a modern fairy tale
but then decayed into a dysfunctional
union that seemed to make no one happy
except the London tabloids.
Diana's announcement, which appar-
ently surprised the rest of the royal fam-
ily, sparked an immediate dispute over
terms of the split. Diana's statement said
she will retain her title and continue to
live at Kensington Palace in London. But
a spokesperson for Queen Elizabeth II
quickly said there had been no agreement
on retention of the title.
Diana said in a statement she would
"continue to be involved" with decisions
affecting the lives of the couple's sons,
William and Harry. She did not address
the issue of custody, which most royal-
watchers say Charles will get because of
William's status as heir presumptive to
the throne. Neither statement mentioned
terms of any monetary settlement.
Last December, the queen announced
her wish that Charles and Diana - the
topic of endless gossip - divorce. The
couple reached an "amicable" agreement
at a meeting yesterday at Kensington
Palace, Diana's spokesperson said.
Britain, Ireland set
date for peace tlks
LONDON - The leaders of Britain
and Ireland tried yesterday to salvage
the bomb-shattered Northern Ireland
peace process by setting a date, June 10,
for talks among all parties in the prov-
ince that are committed to nonviolence.
British Prime Minister John Ma
and Irish Prime Minister John BrutoT
patching up differences that had con-
tributed to the breakdown in the pro-
cess, proposed a two-step procedure to
prepare for those talks: discussions
among the parties beginning next week,
similar to talks held by Balkan leaders
in Dayton, Ohio, last November, fol-
lowed by elections in Northern Ireland
to let voters decide who would partici-
pate in the June negotiations.
