Dole claims nomination, three states

Uhe Associated Press
Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) won prima-
ries in California, Washington and Ne-
vada yesterday to complete a 25-state
Aarch sweep that transformed him from
eetering to triumphant in the Republi-
,an presidential race. "A new America
s within our reach," Dole said in cel-
;bration.
Voter surveys showed Dole with a
giant margin over Pat Buchanan in Cal i-
formia and Washington, and returns
-showed Dole winning comfortably in
Nevada as well.
Dole dropped his calculated caution
and claimed victory a week after secur-
ing a majority of delegates. "The battle

for the Republican nomination is over."
Dole told a victory rally.
Setting his sights on President
Clinton, Dole cast the Democratic in-
cumbent as the obstacle to welfare re-
form, tax reform, a balanced budget
and tougher judges. "The battle for
America's future is beginning tonight,"
he declared.
Buchanan won the first primary five
weeks ago in New Hampshire but has
had little to celebrate since. In Califor-
nia, he conceded Dole "will be the Re-
publican nominee and we have to con-
gratulate him on his victory." But he
defiantly said he would "go to San
Diego," site of the August GOP con-

vention.
Buchanan was heading home to
Washington to meet tomorrow with top
advisers to decide his next step. Some

Republican Party Chairman Haley
Barbour ended his neutrality in the pri-
mary fight and his words were more
than symbolic: Dole has spent most of

supporters want
him to quit the
GOP and run as
an independent.
Dole claimed
the 165 delegates
in winner-take-all
California - by
far the biggest
single-state prize
in the nomination

Man-made flood flows in Grand Canyor
PAGE, Ariz.-- As dawn touched the sandstone cliffs below Glen Canyon Dan
Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt stood on a catwalk at the dam's base and pushe
a button, turned a wheel and pulled a handle. With a deafening roar, a torrent c
water exploded from a tube at the base of the 710-foot dam and began its 300-mil
rush through the Grand Canyon to Lake Mead.
The roaring water is an effort by engineers to recreate the spring flood that use
to sweep through the Grand Canyon each year before the dam was built. Part
new flow regime that was nearly 15 years and $60 million in the planning,
seven-day flood will send more than 117 billion gallons of water sluicing throug
the canyon's narrow defiles, raising the river's height by up to 12 feet in places an
- if scientists' estimates are correct - rebuilding beaches and restoring slac
backwaters that are the biological heart of the canyon.
For a country that has spent the better part of this century impounding nearly ever
major river in the West atenormous costto the environment, the experiment represent
"a major test of whether man can do something right with dams rather than alway
doing something wrong with dams," said Dave Wegner, the scientist who oversawth
project.

chase - and won all 14 in Nevada as
well. He was on pace to pick up at least
1 1 of the 18 delegates at stake in Wash-
ington. That would give him 1,195 del-
egates - with 996 needed for nomina-
tion. Buchanan had a paltry 109 by
comparison.
In victory, Dole made an overture to
all his vanquished rivals. "The issues
they have raised and the voters they
have appealed to will be acrucial part of
a winning Republican coalition this
fall," Dole said.
Yet in an interview, he left no doubt
he had little patience left for Buchanan's
daily demands about shaping the GOP
platform. "The longer he just hangs in
there the more he helps Bill Clinton,"
Dole said.
The 72-year-old Kansas senator
locked up the nomination with a four-
state primary sweep last week, but he
waited a week to declare victory so that
he could give giant California the credit
forputting him overthe top on this third
try forthe Republican presidential nomi-
nation.

-Sen. Bob Dole "From today
R-Kan. forward, the Re-
publican Party is
going to be focused on everything we
can do this spring and summer to help
Bob Dole beat Bill Clinton and send
him back to Arkansas," Barbour said in
an interview.
As Dole looked toward a show-
down with Clinton, he could not ig-
nore the lurking shadow of Ross Perot,
who began a busy stretch of travel to
promote his new Reform Party just as
the presidential primary calendar fi-
nally gave Dole the chance to plan a
vacation.
"lfyouthink anew party is agood idea,
we'd love to have you join," Perot told a
Texas A&M audience last night, criticiz-
ing both Democrats and Republicans for
failing to keep their promises. He bristled
at a few questions, snapping at one stu-
dent who asked why she should support
his new Reform Party, "I don't care
whether you vote for our party or not."
Dole tried anew to convince the Texan
to stay on the sidelines.
"The one barrier to what Ross and his
supporters believe in is Bill Clinton,"
Dole said in the interview.

Study examines
mastectomies
CHICAGO -Thousands ofwomen
every year undergo mastectomies -
perhaps unnecessarily - to remove an
extremely tiny type of breast cancer
that may not spread or endanger their
lives, researchers say.
The tumors - called ductal carci-
noma in situ, or DCIS - are contained
in the milk ducts in the breast. Most are
too small to be felt and show up only on
breast X-rays.
Women with these minuscule early
tumors might instead take a more con-
servative approach than removal of the
breasts, such as lumpectomy-removal
of just the cancerous tissue - plus
radiation, researchers say.
Researchers say the advent of
mammography is leading more women
to have their breasts removed to treat
this type of cancer. Between 1973 and
1992, mammography led to more than
a fivefold increase in the rate at which
such cancers were discovered, accord-
ing to a study based on data compiled
by the National Cancer Institute.
Mi lk-duct malignancies led more than
10,000 women to have their breasts

removed in 1992 - many poss
needlessly, the researchers reported i
today's issue of The Journal of th
American Medical Association.

Muskie, of Maine, was the 196

election to Richard Nixon and

emerged from the campaign as a polit

the lobbies to raise money.
"We'd be trying to get funds through
other means than just increasing the
student fee each semester," Tudisco
said.
A large part of the funding problem
can be solved by the University, said
Nora Salas, United Peoples' Coalition
presidential candidate. Salas said UPC
would call for guaranteed University
funding for students-of-color groups.
Salas said students-of-color groups
"enhance the environment for retention
at this University" and that it is "some-
what ludicrous for them to have to go
back and ask for funding each year."
For the remaining student groups re-
questing M SA funds, a clear and speedy
process is essential, Salas said.

LANGUAGE
Continued from Page 1
people around the world, especially with
Internet usage, means that fluency in other
languages will become necessary.
"It is a practical need all of us will
need in the business world more and
more,"Amrinesaid. "Part of being edu-
cated is to be fluent not only in another
language, but in another culture."
Amrine said the ideal LAC situation
would be to have students finish a lan-
guage sequence and then take LAC
courses in another discipline.
"We are trying to set up a sequence
that runs through a language program
and goes on to another department,"
Amrine said. "We want to set up such
sequences on a regular basis."
History and business classes taught
in a foreign language are two logical
sequences, Amrine said.
Students who complete six to nine cred-
its of LAC work get a notation on their
transcript that indicates fluency in a for-
eign language. To receive LAC credit,
students often can modify a course and
meet with the professor to get additional
assignments in a foreign language.
The German department, which is
currently the largest contributorto LAC
courses, is also making changes within
its own discipline.
The department has revised almost
all aspects of its program, earning them
the 1996 Departmental Award for Con-
tributions to the Undergraduate Initia-
tive, an $25,000 LSA award.
Not only has the department redesigned
courses in all four semesters of the lan-
guage requirement, but Amrine said he is
working with high schools to better pre-
pare students for University courses.
Improvements will continue in all
language departments, Schoem said.
He said LSA organized focus groups
that will discuss ways to improve the
programs. The 50-70 students involved
in the various groups met for the first
time last night.
"We want to identify what isminplace,
what are the most innovative things
happening, what are students' experi-
ences in language courses," Schoem
said. "We will be looking at the data
and making recommendations."

NATO: Iran training
Bosnian army
SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina
- The NATO-led force said yesterday
it has proof that Iranians are training
Bosnian government soldiers, despite
President Alija Izetbegovic's insistence
that there are no Iranian soldiers in the
Bosnian army.
"A threat does remain from foreign
forces in Bosnia," said U.S. Navy Capt.
Mark van Dyke, NATO's chief spokes-
person. "It's a threat from terrorist ac-
tivity, and it's also a violation of the
Dayton peace agreement."
"We want to see immediate action to
remove those forces," he said.
Izetbegovic, in a letter published
Monday, said some 50 to 60 former
Iranian soldiers remain in Bosnia, but
they became civilians after their mili-
tary unit disbanded in January.
He and senior Bosnian army officials
deny that Iranian soldiers or instructors
are working with the Bosnian army.
The dispute leaves NATO and the
Bosnian government at loggerheads

over a key military issue, and threater
U.S. aid that the Bosnian army despei
ately needs to train and equip its force
Under the Dayton accord, all foreig
military forces were to leave Bosnia b

British farmers
demand cows' dea
LONDON - Farmers demande
yesterday that Britain begin killingoldt
cattle to calm public fears of the ma
cow disease, but Prime Minister Joh
Major refused and blamed the entii
crisis on his political opponents.
The National Farmers Union suI
gested frightened customers coul-
reassured if Britain destroyed thoui
of older cattle believed likely to has
contracted the fatal disease from eatin
sheep offal.
Britain's beef industry has been ree
ing since March 20, when Health Se
retary Stephen Dorrell announced th
scientists believed the mad cow disea
was the "most likely" source of l
cases of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease,
similar illness in humans.
