about the possibility of discovering
such a gene.
"People thought it would be difficult
to find a gene because of the late onset
and sporadic cases of the disease -
this task was more daunting than find-
ing genes in other historical disorders.'
Prostate cancer, which befalls one in
10 men, is the most common male can-
cer. More than 40,000 die each year.
"The main implication of this discov-
ery is that the gene will likely be cloned
in the next year or two to discover its
biological function," said Dr. Jill
Macoski, assistant professor of surgery.
"Then we'll be able to tell how the lack

of that function will turn a normal cell
into a malignant cell, which will give
insight into how cancer happens."
Cooney said the discovery is a
reminder of the need for even greater
family involvement.
"The finding suggests that there will
be other genes involved and that we
need to continue to have families
involved in the research, she said.
The Prostate Cancer Project is
looking for families with two or more
living members with prostate cancer.
Families who fit the description
should call the project at 936-2031 or

The finding are published in today's
issue of the journal Science.

Holiday security tightens at airports
WASHINGTON - As Americans take to the skies this holiday season, they
won't breeze through airports as easily as in the past. Yet, the passenger ID checks,
parking restrictions and luggage screening are just the start: Possible measures
ahead include X-ray strip searches and small chambers that "sniff" travelers for
"Security has to address the perceived threat," said Lyle Malotky, a Fcde*
Aviation Administration security specialist.
That means officials must weigh both the threat of terrorism and the inconve-
nience to passengers when deciding which of the possible future measures should
become reality.
Attention was riveted on airport security in the weeks after TWA Flight 800 blew
up in July, killing 230 people. Politicians and pundits produced opinions, President
Clinton and Congress provided money and regulators hatched plans.
Months later, the cause of the disaster is still unresolved and airport security is
less on the minds of travelers.
"We're a crisis-oriented society - right after TWA, it spiked up," said Capt.
Steve Luckey, chair of the National Security Committee for the Air Line Pil'
Association. "But Americans are conditioned to be forgiving and forgetful i

"I don't want to indicate the sub-
stance of conversations or who's in con-

hit House
The Washington Post
WASHINGTON - House Majority
Leader Dick Armey (R-Texas) called
yesterday for a bipartisan agreement on
whether the makeup of the House ethics
committee should change - a political-
ly charged issue because of the commit-
tee's continuing investigation into House
Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.)
The question arises because when
the current Congress goes out of exis-
tence in January, seven of the 10 com-
mittee members will have served three
terms - a maximum length of service
that House rules allow.
"I hope that we can, in a bipartisan
fashion, find the best way to reconcile
the House rule ... with the need to
complete the committee's current
work," Armey said. Armey has not pro-
posed any solution and is considering a
number of options.
"Every 'if' you can think of is a pos-
sibility," said Michele Davis, his
Normally, the House speaker and the
minority leader each appoint the five
members from their party that serve on
the committee. But Gingrich assigned
Armey to handle the GOP assignments
because of the panel's investigation of
whether the speaker improperly used
tax-deductible charitable contributions
to further a partisan political goal. The
committee, assisted by Washington
white-collar criminal attorney James
Cole, is also investigating whether
Gingrich provided accurate statements
to the committee.
Gingrich has steadfastly denied any

CIA officer indicted
in Russian spy case
WASHINGTON - Career CIA offi-
cer Harold Nicholson was indicted yes-
terday on a charge of selling national
defense information to the Russians
since 1994 for more than $180,000.
The one-count indictment, returned
by a federal grand jury in suburban
Alexandria, Va., charged the former CIA
station chief with conspiracy to commit
espionage. The charge, carries a top
penalty of life in prison without parole.
U.S. Attorney Helen Fahey said the
investigation has not turned up infor-
mation necessary to seek a death
penalty. A death penalty can be
sought if someone is killed as a result
of espionage.
CIA Director John Deutch has said
U.S. officials know of no deaths or
arrests as a result of Nicholson's alleged
treachery, although he said Nicholson is
believed to have given Moscow the
identities and future assignments of up
to two years' worth of CIA recruits.
The government also moved to for-
feit, if Nicholson is convicted, any
Explosion in Puerto
Rico kills at least 20
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - The
shops were just opening on crowded
Camelia Soto Street when an explosion
blew apart a six-story building yesterday,
turning windows into flying knives and
crushing drivers in their cars.
At least 20 people were killed, and
rnore than 80 were hurt. Police expect-
ed to find at least 10 more bodies in the
mounds of torn steel and concrete that
were offices and apartments.
Officials suspected a leak in a pipe
carrying cooking gas caused the blast,
and said the building's owner had been
complaining for weeks of escaping gas.
The explosion sent shards of shat-
tered glass into a Roman Catholic
parochial school across the street. Some
of the 500 students inside the Colegio
La Milagrosa - School of the
Miraculous - were knocked to the
ground, but no one was injured.
Shoppers hunting for bargains in
the stores that line the street fled the
billowing black cloud of dust and

direct or indirect proceeds of his spy-
ing. A court document alleged that this
includes: $180,000 in cash, a Chevrolet
Lumina Sports van and a Toshiba
portable computer.
