GOP candidates debateay
The Washington Post
COLUMBIA, S.C. - Displaying the
divisiveness caused by a season of brutal,
negative advertisements, the major Re-
publican presidential candidates angrily
confronted one another here yesterday in
an hour-long debate that often sounded
more like a barroom shouting match.
Under a unique format designed by a
South Carolina business group, the can-
didates were forced to watch and com-
ment on their own negative ads, and
nobody came out unscathed. Senate Ma-
jority Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.) dubbed
millionaire publisher Malcolm "Steve"
Forbes "the king of negative advertis-
ing." Former Tennessee Gov. Lamar
Alexander said Dole then had to be
considered"the prince" ofnegative cam-
Dole replied angrily that Alexander
had tried to play "Boy Scout up in New
Hampshire," but was now attacking him
in the South. Pat Buchanan said Dole's
commercials showed "the vapidity and
hollowness" of the senator's campaign.
The angry exchanges dominated the
debate, which came just two days be-
fore the crucial primary here tomorrow
in a state that led the Republican re-
alignment in the South.
But the encounter also was punctu-
atedby discussions aboutjobs andtrade,
taxes and cutting government, an in-
tensely personal question about rape
and abortion that caused Dole to stumble
on an issue that has caused him re-
peated problems in the campaign, and
hot-button Southern issues like the
males-only policy of the Citadel and
the Confederate flag that flies over the
state capitol here.
The debate highlighted the personal
animosity that has developed among
the candidates. Late in the debate, Forbes
and Alexander collided over a Forbes
ad claiming Alexander raised taxes to
balance the budget in Tennessee and
collected $295,000 from a law firm that
lobbies the federal government while
running for president.
"Steve, you haven't learned a single
thing in your whole campaign," said
Alexander, who later called Forbes a
"magazine salesman." "The negative
ads come right out of your mouth. You
know that's not true."
Forbes defended the ad, saying it was
"charitable" because it did not mention
any ofAlexander's "cozybusiness deals
you did as governor."
Alexander exploded. "You should go
practice your dirty business on a race for
the school board before you try for the
Judge clears GOP committee of abuses
WASHINGTON - A federal judge yesterday cleared GOPAC, the Republican
political action committee once headed by House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.)
of violating federal election laws by working to develop Republican congressiornal
candidates long before it officially registered as a PAC.
In a 32-page opinion, Senior U.S. District Judge Louis Oberdorfer called
allegations by the Federal Election Commission nothing more than "circumsfani-
tial evidence and inferences." He said that the FEC "conspicuously failed"
convince him that GOPAC should have registered with the agency as early as 1989
when it began urging voters to overthrow the Democratic Party's control of
Gingrich, described by the FEC as a beneficiary of GOPAC's early activities,
said at a news conference that he was "gratified" by the judge's decision, calling
it "a complete vindication of the First Amendment and a flat rejection of misuse
of the regulatory process for negative political purposes."
"We've said all along we didn't do anything wrong, there isn't anything there,"
he said. "And 8,000 pages and an awful lot of legal fees later, the judge said, 'There
is no case.' It's a wonderful feeling to finally have this clearly resolved in our favor
and to be able to say once again to everyone, as we said all along, 'We obey
rules and we do the right thing."'

presidency of the United States of
America," he said, continuing amoment
later: "My ethics have never been ques-
tioned, never been questioned. ... You
come into this campaign never having
run for any office and start smearing Bob
Dole, smearing me, smearing the other
candidates and that's absolutely wrong."
"You filibuster, but how did you turn
$1 into $620,000?" Forbes replied. He
was referring to a business deal in which
Alexander and others paid $1 for an
option to buy a Tennessee newspaper,
and then made a windfall when Gannett
bought out the option so it could pur-
chase the paper.

search, said he was pleased with how
the process was conducted. "Without a
doubt, student input was important," he
said. "I think we need to be sure this is
someone we can work with, and if his
personality can really intermesh with
our style and traditions."
LSA senior Marc Bos, who partici-
pated in the search, said Lehman and
Reynolds were very sincere and poignant
to have student input. "They were very
excited to know what we thought and
how the candidates would do," Bos said.
Schmidt said Sedatole was the top
pick of most band members.
"He is a very genuine individual and
you know where he stands on the is-
sues," Schmidt said. "He is an advocate
of students when it comes to the style of
the marching band. He also puts a lot of
emphasis on performance quality."
Bos said he is excited about Sedatole's
appointment. "I think he'll do an excep-
tional job. Dr. Sedatole is in line with the
excellence this university represents. He
is very personable and professional, and
will get the job done," he said.
Lehman said he believes Sedatole is
a good choice for fans who watch the
marching band at football games. "He
will not only preserve the longtime out-
standing tradition of the band, but will
take it to new heights," Lehman said.
Schmidt said he was confident and
optimistic about Sedatole's appoint-
ment. "I feel that Dr. Sedatole will not
rest on our laurels, but take us to the
next level with innovative performances
that will keep us one of the best march-
ing bands in the nation," Schmidt said.
Sedatole holds a bachelor's degree
in music education from Baylor Uni-
versity, and a master's and a doctorate
in instrumental conducting from the
University of Texas.

ILIJAS, Bosnia-Herzegovina- The
Bosnian Serb stranglehold on Sarajevo,
perhaps the most enduring symbol of
the fratricide that laid waste to the
Balkans over the past four years, offi-
cially came to an end yesterday when
this Bosnian Serb-held suburb reverted
to government authority.
"I send this message with great plea-
sure to all citizens of Bosnia-
Herzegovina and the whole world: The
siege of Sarajevo has been lifted," said
Avdo Hebib, interior minister of the
Muslim-led Bosnian government.
The pronouncement was made as Mus-
lim-Croat federation police dispersed
through the streets of this largely deserted
industrial town and, more significantly,
took control of a strategic road that con-
nects Sarajevo with the central Bosnian
towns of Zenica and Tuzla.
It was the first time since the start of
fighting here in 1992 that access to the
capital was not dictated by the Bosnian
Serbs. They not only controlled land
routes into the city - and thereby sup-
plies of food, fuel and humanitarian
relief - but also wreaked havoc at the
airport with weaponry from neighbor-

of the immense new Wal-Mart

Christopher, who favors custom-tai-

regular Wal-M art customer, and he di
not buy anything yesterday. But he was
