NATION/WORLD

CLINTON
C antmd from Page IA
"There is work to do that government
alone cannot do," Clinton said.
The system should be changed,
Clinton said, "so that the voice of the
people will always speak louder than
the din of narrow interest.'
,Clinton will come forth with specific
proposals today when he is scheduled to
Cddress the Democratic National
Committee as it installs a new chair,
Colorado Gov. Roy Romer. Clinton also
is expected to open his battle against a
balanced budget amendment to the
Constitution.
Clinton promised a cleaner environ-
ment and more educational opportuni-
ties so that "the doors of higher educa-
tion will be open to all."
Republicans generally praised
Clinton's speech, though some ques-
tioned his sincerity.
Rep. Bob Livingston (R-La.), chair
of the House Appropriations
Committee, was measured in his reac-
tion. "I think he certainly gave a
Republican-oriented speech, but time
will tell whether or not he means it or it
was rhetoric;',he said.
The carefully executed formalities on
the steps of the Capitol contrasted the
confused but determined citizens who
huddled on the surrounding grounds,
some of whom had been there as early
as the pre-dawn hours. They traded tick-
ets for a better view of the ceremonies,
fought for seats and scrambled for last-
minute commemorative buttons.
Although the weather had warmed
considerably since the weekend's festiv-

ities began Friday, the cold was more
than California-native Tim Rezendes
was used to. The three-hour wait with
his children was worth the chill,
Rezendes said.
"It doesn't happen every day. And
even though it does happen every four
years, not everyone gets to participate,"
he said.
Americans gathered across town for
public and private parties before yester-
day's events.
"All you have to do is look up at the
Capitol at night - for some reason it
was even shinier than usual," said U.S.
Rep. Sander Levin (D-West
Bloomfield).
While some have speculated that
Clinton's $44-million second inaugural
isn't as grand as his first, others insist the
enthusiasm is just more focused this
time.
"(This time) I know what the heck's
going on," said U.S. Rep. Bart Stupak
(D-Menominee).
Many spectators said they appreciat-
ed Clinton's message of hope and
responsibility. Clinton paid special trib-
ute to Martin Luther King Jr. in his
speech, calling the activist's dream the
"American dream." The inauguration
festivities coincided with the national
holiday commemorating King.
"I thought it was phat," said Megan
Geary, a junior at Catholic University in
Washington, D.C., who attended the
swearing-in ceremony. "I liked the part
about Martin Luther King, too."
, Kristina Nielson, another Catholic
University junior, said she enjoyed
"being a part of history."
Spectators expressed skepticism

Gm"gnch scheduled for re riinmd
WASHINGTON - Rep. Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), a historian who has boasted
that he is a "transformational figure," is poised to make history today by becoming
the first House speaker disciplined by a voie of the House.
Shortly after the House goes into session at noon, Rep. Nancy Johnson (K
Conn.), chair of the House ethics committee, is to call up a resolution that woul
adopt the ethics panel's recommendation that the House reprimand Gingrich anp,1
order him to pay $300,000 toward the costs of the committee's investigation ofhim'.
Gingrich agreed to the penalty in December as part of a deal in which he admit-
ted his guilt to modified charges of breaking House rules -- essentially a plea-bar -
gain agreement.
Under House rules, there will be an hour of debate, 30 minutes each for the
Republicans and Democrats. Johnson will manage the GOP's time and the
Democrats' time will be controlled by Rep. Benjamin Cardin (Md.), his party's top
ethics panel member.
The speaker does not plan to address the House, according to spokesperson Lauren
Maddox. He is to speak to House Republicans at a closed-door meeting this morning.,
Gingrich need not be present in the chamber to be reprimanded. A simple major's
ity vote is required to impose the punishment. Under the chambers rules, law-
makers may try to change the penalty to make it either more or less severe. r

SARA STILIMAN/Daily
The Metaphorical Bridge to the 21st Century was erected as part of the day's cel-
ebrations. People were encouraged to attach their dreams and wishes to the wall.

about the displayed comradery of
Democrats and Republicans, as mem-
bers of both parties came together for
the ceremony.
"I think it was a show tactic," Geary
said.
Nielson said she found the biparti-
sanship pretentious. "It's irritating
because you know they're going to bat-
tle for the next four years."
Hundreds of thousands of people
lined Pennsylvania and Constitution
avenues to catch a glimpse of the presi-
dential motorcade and to cheer those
marching in the 116-band parade.
The 87-member Carthage High
School Band of Smith County, Tenn.,
marched yesterday, at the invitation of
Vice President Gore's wife, Tipper
Gore. Carthage is the vice president's
hometown.
Family members of the band staked

out their seats six hours before the
parade started.
"We've been excited for months,"
said Liz Schafer, mother of the band's
drum major. "We even got invited to Al
Gore's home here and he and Tipper
were right there shaking hands."
Not everyone in the crowd came to
enjoy the view - some came to spread
a message of their own. About 75 anti-
abortion protesters secured spots along
the parade route and hoisted large signs
bearing graphic photographs of aborted
fetuses.
Judy Dick, a protestor and a resident
of Pittsburgh, Pa., said the venue was
ideal to spread her group's message.
She said the president has to be made
aware of important issues, even on days
of celebration.

Schizophrenia
linked to nicotine
WASHINGTON -Scientists have
located a gene that may increase the
risk of inheriting schizophrenia - a
finding that could also explain why
many schizophrenics chain smoke.
Essentially, nicotine appears to over-
ride briefly a brain defect characteristic
of the devastating mental illness, pro-
viding frenzied patients a few minutes
of calm, researchers report in today's
edition of Proceedings of the National
Academy of Sciences.
"Schizophrenics are the most heavy
smokers of any psychotic patients,"
said Dr. Robert Freedman of the
Denver Veterans Affairs Medical
Center. "They had discovered this
(effect) before we had, and it had been
overlooked as a clue to the biology of
schizophrenia."
At issue is the inability of many
schizophrenics to filter out unneces-
sary sights, sounds and other stimuli -
that tapping tree branch or the refriger-
ator hum that healthy people can ignore
- so they essentially suffer informa-

tion overload.
Freedman and colleagues at the
University of Colorado discovered thA
this trait is inherited. And they linked a
gene that appears responsible for that to
a brain receptor that helps filter inf6p
mation, a receptor that can be stimulates"
ed by nicotine. Some 4 million
Americans suffer from schizophrenia
Trial for du Pont to t
begin today 4
MEDIA, Pa. - One of the richest
murder defendants in U.S. history goes
on trial today in a case that will deter-
mine not whether John du Pont sh*
wrestler David Schultz, but whether he
was sane when he did it.
But legal insanity goes much further
than proving du Pont suffered from
delusions of being the Dalai Lama and
Jesus Christ. The defense must con-
vince the jury that his mental illness --
paranoid schizophrenia - made du Pont
unable to recognize that pulling the trig-
ger was wrong.
The crime allegedly took place la,*

James Blanchard, Sen. Carl Levin (D-
Mich.) and Dr. Ruth Westheimer all
attended the event.
The celebrations in Washington this
week were for the volunteers and cam-

paign workers as much as for the candi-
dates, said U.S. Rep. Bart Stupak (D-
Menominee).
"This is more a celebration for them,"
Stupak said.
"The entire Michigan delegation has
pulled together unlike every other
state," said Debbi Dingell, wife of U.S.

chair of the unofficial Michigan
Inaugural Ball.
Michigan lawmakers and con-
stituents put on their best clothes last
night and headed for one of the 14 offi-
cial inaugural balls.
Michigan visitors joined with natives
from Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota
and Wisconsin to party at a Midwest
inaugural ball at the Air and Space
Museum. On a whirlwind tour of the
inaugural balls, the vice president, the
president and the first lady made an
appearance at the Midwest Ball just
before 9 p.m.
The first couple danced to Natalie
Cole's "Unforgettable" and thanked
Midwest patrons for their support dur-
ing the campaign season.

said to the crowd squeezed around the
stage.
While the president's visit at the ball
was expected, some attendees had a few
surprises.
"We were kind of expecting to get
more for our money," said Katie
Grause, a student at Indiana University.
Grause said she was surprised that
food and drink weren't included with
her $164 ticket.
U.S. Rep. Lynn Rivers (D-Ann
Arbor), recently elected to her second
term in the House, said her husband
enjoys the big social events more than
she does.
"I really enjoy the swearing-in,"
Rivers said.
Newly elected U.S. Rep. Debbie
Stabenow (D-Lansing) experienced the
inauguration from a different side this
year.
"Before I was one of the crowd, now
I'm hosting one of the events,"
Stabenow said.
Stabenow said she was very excited
about experiencing the fanfare of the
swearing-in ceremony and the balls.
Visitors met with representatives,
senators and delegates from other states
during the inaugural weekend.
In addition, displays in heated tents
were set up throughout the weekend
along the Capitol Mall. Crossing a
imock "Bridge to the 21st Century,",
people pasted up messages of advice
and hope for the next presidency.
"These are not partisan events," said
Levin, at a breakfast he co-hosted with
brother U.S. Rep. Sander Levin (D-
Bloomfield Hills). "They're celebrating
a system that works."
Michigan Republicans were harder to
find on the Hill this weekend, but were
by no means invisible. Some made the
trip for events like "Planet Republican,"
hosted by U.S. Sen. Spencer Abraham
(R-Mich.).
Matt Potts, a member of the
University's chapter of the College
Republicans, said that although the
GOP contingency was quieter this time,
Republicans still managed to keep a
sense of humor with events like the
"Mourning" on the morning of
Clinton's second inauguration.
Members of the University's chapter
of the College Democrats came to
Washington to get in on any activities
they could. Members said they enjoyed
access to many of the events.

Korean pres, to
address apposition
SEOUL, South Korea -- In a dra-
matic turnabout, South Korean
President Kim Young Sam agreed to
meet opposition leaders today to seek a
compromise on how to stem spiraling
national protests and costly work stop-
pages caused by his party's controver-
sial labor law.
But it remained unclear whether
Kim's meeting with his erstwhile polit-
ical rivals - Kim Dae Jung of the
National Congress for New Politics and
Kim Jong Pil of the United Liberal
Democrats - would placate workers
and resolve the month-long labor crisis.
"This is a very important turning
point;' said Choi Jang Jip, Korea
University professor of political sci-
ence. "President Kim took the wrong
course in favor of big business, ignor-
ing the needs of the majority of the
people. He has finally realized how
strong the criticism is of him:'
The potential breakthrough came as
union members returned to their jobs

Kim had earlier refused to meet wi
his political rivals or review revisions fo
the measure, which his ruling New
Korea Party rammed through in a
National Assembly session on Dec. 26'.
Belgrade court n

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia -A cou*
ruling threw into doubt yesterday
whether opponents of Serbian
President Slobodan Milosevic will take
over Belgrade's city government, car-
rying out last Tuesday's ruling by an
electoral commission upholding the
results of November's voting.
A municipal court in the Serbian
capital refused to'render a quick deci-
sion on two challenges to the commis-
sion's ruling that the opposition coal
tion had won control of the city count
in elections held Nov 17.
