Veterans suspect U.S. cover-up
Los Angeles Times
WASHINGTON - The Pentagon's
latest discovery that 5,000 more veter-
ans ofthe 1991 GulfWar may have had
contact with chemical weapons
appeared to heighten suspicion yester-
day among veterans of the conflict that
the Defense Department has been try-
ing to cover-up the issue.
The Pentagon's new announcement
marked the second time in three months
that the Defense Department has
acknowledged that more U.S. troops
may have been victims of chemical
weapons. In June, it disclosed that 400
soldiers might have been exposed as a
result of the same operation.
Pentagon officials insisted that the
risk of exposure was only a possibility,
insisting that there still is no evidence
that any U.S. troops were poisoned dur-
ing the incidents, which occurred while
U.S. forces were destroying an Iraqi

"I'm not saying the University is
negligent in all of this," Lowenstein
said. "Their obligation is to maintain
the security in all this."
Baker said the University does not
conduct background checks on part-
time student employees.
"It's never been something that's
been done for whatever reason," Baker
said. "I don't necessarily think it's
FERPA - it hasn't been done."
Baker said there may be instances in
which a student has access to the
records of other students, but the access
is limited. It occurs only after the stu-
dent has been trained, and then only

said that if a calling card is illegally
obtained and used, the company would

the bottom of the issue," Snyder said.

Dole recovers from spill, talks drugs
LAS VEGAS - Bob Dole showed off a letter of support from Nancy Reagan
for his anti-drug campaign yesterday and told supporters his quick rebound after a
spill off a campaign stage shows he's tough and agile - and young.
Mrs. Reagan, who made drug abuse her signature cause during her husband's
presidency, wrote that Dole's new "Just Don't Do It" slogan against drug abuse
"will be a tremendous rallying cry."
The Dole campaign was anxious to return the spotlight to drugs after th
Republican presidential nominee's startling fall Wednesday night when a railing
gave way at a campaign rally.
Asked what he thought public reaction to the fall would be, Dole said: "They
ought to think, 'Boy, that guy's agile. He's young. He goes after 'em. He's tough'"
Age is considered such a potent issue in the presidential race that the 73-year-
old Dole and his aides worked overtime to show he was all right.
Playing down the incident with humor, Dole told supporters at a Las Vegas rally
that the mishap occurred when he tried out "that new Democratic dance, the
"I'm not going to try that any more," he said to the crowd in a hotel ballroomt

WASHINGTON - When it comes
to the power of the subconscious,
maybe Freud slipped. Yes, subliminal
messages do influence the min,
researchers say, but only for a fraction
of a second.
A new study also casts doubt on the
effectiveness of subliminal messages in
"The mind, when it's operating
unconsciously, is not nearly so smart as
Freud and other psychoanalysts would
have us believe," said University of
Washington psychology Prof. Anthony
The study by Greenwald and two
assistants at the university's Seattle
campus is being published today in the
journal Science. They offered a way to
measure the effects of subliminal mes-
sages and showed that subliminals only
influence the mind for about one-tenth
of a second.
"That's important because theories of
how the mind operates unconsciously
are used in devising psychotherapies,"
Greenwald said. "As we change our
concept of how much the mind can
accomplish unconsciously, we change
our mind about what should work
inside the therapy."

WASHINGTON - Parents in the
Northeast must spend more household
income to send their children to in-state
public colleges and universities than
parents elsewhere, a federal study says.

Braun said yesterday in releasing a
study she requested from the General
Accounting Office, the investigative
arm of Congress.

troops look for more
SEOUL, South Korea - With
trained dogs, night-vision goggles and
sophisticated tracking equipment, thou-
sands of South Korean troops prowled
the heavily forested eastern mountains
yesterday in search of North Korean
They found seven. All were shot and
killed in three separate shoot-outs, the
Defense Ministry reported.
That brought to 18 the number of
intruders killed since a North Korean
submarine was found stranded off
Kangnung on South Korea's east coast
early Wednesday. One other North
Korean was captured, and at least one
more was believed hiding in rugged ter-
The infiltration has heightened South
Korean fears that despite North Korea's
deepening economic woes and recent
gestures of openness, it still has not
abandoned its goal of communizing the
pro-Western South by force.
North Korea has not commented on
the latest incursion, the 14th reported
since 1990. Nor has it ever acknowl-
edged past infiltrations. It also refused
to receive a protest letter yesterday
from the American-led U.N. Commar
which oversees the fragile cease-fire
from the 1950-53 Korean War.
Closing karoke bars
may save marriages
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - In
an effort to promote marital harmony,
karaoke bars in Malaysia's Selangor
state have been ordered to close at
p.m. so husbands will return home ear-
lier to their wives.
"Surely wives do not want their hus-
bands singing in karaoke lounges until
the wee hours of the morning. It invites
quarrel," Selangor Chief Minister
Muhammad told reporters Wednesday
in Shah Alam, the capital of Selangor.
The curfew will remain in place as
long the state "is responsible for avoid-
ing confrontations in the bedrooms,"
