:But other students were not willing

"I was opposed to all of (the fee
,I.reases) because I don't see their use-
jiness," said Engineering first-year
s pdent Ken Barr. "I'm a fan of the pay
4oplay system - I'm only in one stu-

:from MSA, we raise our own funds.
yWhs shouldn't other groups do that?"

Blake said the first day of elections
went very smoothly.
"We didn't have any major problems
- nothing we couldn't work out,
Blake said.
One transportation mishap forced
the Bursley polling site's opening to
be delayed for about a half hour.
Voting there was then slowed even
more by a shortage of pencils to fill
out ballots.
"These things happen," said poll
worker and LSA-Student Government
President Paul Scublinsky. "We'll stay
open later if people here still want to

Renominated Gingrich touts unity
WASHINGTON - Humbled by the political pounding he has taken over
the last two years, Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) accepted his party's nomination to
a second term as House speaker yesterday and expressed new willingness-to
pursue a less militant agenda than the revolutionary one he brandished when
he first seized the gavel in 1994.
"If the last Congress was the 'Confrontation Congress,' this Congress will be the
'Implementation Congress,"' Gingrich said in his acceptance speech. "And we wil&
be very pleased two years from now at how much we have implemented."
House Republicans nominated Gingrich as speaker by a unanimous voice vote,
despite some lawmakers' anxieties about his sagging popularity and unresolved
ethics allegations.
Gingrich made no effort to conceal the toll taken by the barrage of criticism,
ethics charges and negative advertising over the last two years. "It was a very dif-
ficult two years' he told his colleagues. "Some 80,000 ads later, I am still here.
But it was painful."
The most recent spate of criticism has come from fellow Republicans, as some
called on him to step aside as speaker until the House ethics committee finishes
its investigation of allegations about a college course Gingrich once taught, anj
about other narts of his political empire

Crash spurs look at
smaller airports
WASHINGTON - The pilots of the
two small planes that collided at
Quincy, Ill., Tuesday evening were rely-
ing on the oldest known form of air
traffic control: see and be seen.
Quincy is one of about 300 airports
nationwide with scheduled commercial
air service that do not have an air traffic
control tower or radar coverage.
Basically, it is the responsibility of
pilots using these-airports to keep other
aircraft informed of their movements by
radio and to avoid collisions by keeping
an eye out the window.
The same is true during off-hours at
hundreds of other airports that do not
provide 24-hour air traffic control ser-
vice.
The National Transportation Safety
Board is now investigating why the sys-
tem didn't work at Quincy, leaving 13
people dead. A United Express Beech
1900 was landing just as a private King
Air 200 was taking off on a cross run-
way, and the two met tragically at the

intersection.
According to Federal Aviation
Administration statistics, there tare
5,415 public airports in the 50 states,
only 447 of them with control towers.
Of the remaining several thousand
"non-controlled" airports, only about
300 have scheduled airline service
about half of those in Alaska.
Nicholson to plead
innocent to spying a
WASHINGTON - CIA officer
Harold Nicholson will plead innocent
to charges of selling U.S. secrets to
Russia, his attorney said yesterday as he
won additional court-appointed leg4
help to fight the accusation.
"We will be pleading not guilty and
we intend to fight the charges vigorous-
ly," Nicholson's attorney, Jonathan
Shapiro, said in interviews before and
after a court hearing in suburban
Alexandria, Va.
A defiant stance is common .for
criminal defense attorneys at this stage.

U.S.-China talks
open with progress
BEIJING - After shouting at
each other for much of the last four
years, the United States and China
yesterday started talking to each
other again.
Capping a crowded day of farewell
calls on China's Communist leaders,
retiring Secretary of State Warren
Christopher announced that the two
sides made "useful progress" on
nuclear nonproliferation and other
issues. That is about as good as it gets
in the U.S.-Chinese relationship these
days, and cause for great relief among
American officials accompanying the
secretary on his second and final visit
to Beijing.
"We are moving forward, millimeter
by millimeter," one U.S. official said.
"It could be worse. We could be going
backward, kilometer by kilometer."
Despite an improvement in atmos-
pherics, however, U.S.-Chinese rela-

tions remain troubled in many areas,
especially the issues of human rights
and American ties to Taiwan.
Christopher's last trip to Beijing, in
March 1994, ended up in a slanging
match.
South Korea offers
aid for apology
SEOUL, South Korea - In a sfrik-
ing change of tone, South Korea said
yesterday it was ready to offer the
most extensive aid program ever con-
ceived for North Korea if the
Communist regime would apologia
for sending a spy submarine into
southern waters and resume coopera-
tive relations.
South Korean unification official
Moon Moo Hong said the still-secret
program covers 10 major areas, includ-
ing direct food aid, technical assistance
to improve agricultural productivity and
joint development of tourist facilities.
