cover both the walls and the poles of the
lounge, said LSA junior Chinwe Oraka,
who works for Murrell. The lounge cur-
rently has an art exhibit.
Of the two new restaurants, some
students said they appreciated the
arrival of a Tim Horton's to campus.
"I'm a senior here, and I haven't been
able to get a good doughnut until now,"
said LSA senior Josh Darbach.
Tim Horton's and Wendy's, which
also has a branch in the Michigan
Union, are part of the same company
and merged in 1995, said Andy
Maiville, manager of the Tim Horton's
in the League.
"We hope to have a long tenure with
U-M," Maiville said.
The addition of another Wendy's so
close to the Union received mixed feel-

ings from students.
" 1 think it's good in case one gets
crowded," said Kinesiology first-year
student Malonie Sells.
"I would have wanted something
else," said LSA junior Nwabueze
Oklezie, referring to the Wendy's.
"I think two Wendy's is overkill. I
would have liked to see something a
little more cultural," she said.
The Michigan League basement once
served as a place for meetings and con-
ferences but was dormant until four
years ago.
The renovation began in fall 1995
and is expected to continue indefinitely
with the help of student feedback,
Yecke said.
The project is part of a larger reno-
vation project that involves the Union,
the Pierpont Commons and the
University Health Service Building, he
said.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Defense
Secretary William Cohen said yester-
day he will carry out administration
policies on missile defense and gays
and women in the military while, as a
former Republican senator, working
to bring the GOP-led Congress on
board.
Cohen, who took office on Friday,
also urged the Senate to ratify a treaty
banning chemical weapons, saying fail-
ure to join other countries in the inter-
national convention could isolate the
nation and result in serious economic
losses.
Cohen, on ABC's "This Week," and
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright,
on NBC's "Meet the Press," made their
inaugural appearances on yesterday's
talk shows after breezing through
Senate confirmation last week.
Albright, who replaced Warren
Christopher, made clear that U.S. rela-
tions with Russia and .China must be
seen in a broader framework, going
beyond the health of Russian President
Boris Yeltsin or China's human rights
problems.
"While we really wish Boris Yeltsin
well and we have a very good relation-
ship with him," Albright said, "it's
important that people understand that
our relationships with Russia are based
on where they are going, other people
in the government and the possibility
that we will be able to work better and
better together."
Cohen, a three-term senator from
Maine, said he would promote a "three-
plus-three" formula on an anti-missile
system worked out by his predecessor,

William Perry.
Under that, the Pentagon would
research the concept of a national
defense system until 2000, and then
decide whether the threat warrants
deployment by 2003, "which is precise-
ly the year that members on the Hill
wanted."
Republicans have demanded
immediate efforts to erect a national
anti-missile defense system, a new
version of the Strategic Defense
Initiative sought during the Reagan
presidency. The administration has
countered that it would be inordinate-
ly expensive, unnecessary and a vio-
lation of the 1972 Anti-Ballistic
Missile treaty.
Cohen said he was not sure if it was
technically possible to install a system
by 2003 and that it would not be
designed for all-out nuclear war but
"to give us protection against limited,
isolated or perhaps accidental mis-
siles."
On the "don't ask, don't tell" policy
toward gays in the military, Cohen said
that whether one feels uneasy about it
or not "it remains in place and should
be our policy."
He said the "proper balance" has
been achieved on allowing women to
participate in all aspects of the military
except ground combat. "There has been
no societal demand that women go into
ground combat positions."
Cohen remained a little bit ahead of
other administration officials on
Bosnia, repeating that there should be a
June 1998, deadline for the removal of
all American troops.

Men investigated for Olympic bombing:
SPOKANE, Wash. - Three men charged with several bombings and bank rob-
beries in the Pacific Northwest also are being investigated for possible links to thb
Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta, a newspaper reported yesterday.
However, while anonymous Justice Department and FBI officials told:Tho$-
Spokesman-Review that the Spokane bombing suspects are being investigated
in the Atlanta case, they cautioned that they have other leads and no solid s*
pects.
"At this point, they are our strongest lead in the Olympics bombing," one Justice
Department official told the newspaper. "But there's a lot more work to do, and it's
really early on in the investigation."
The three men are being held without bail on charges of robbing banks and
bombing one of the banks, an abortion clinic and an office of The Spokesman-
Review.
They were arrested Oct. 8, near Yakima, Wash., after a military surplus dealer,
encouraged by a $130,000 reward, reported that he recognized a parka worn by a
masked gunmen in a bank surveillance photo.
The dealer, from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, told the FBI he sold two of the mec
military backpack and spoke with them about time-delay detonators, and also t'
them how to wash fingerprints off the backpack, the newspaper said.

City to force
benefits for partners
SAN FRANCISCO - Disney's
done it. So have Levi Strauss, IBM and
American Express.
All offer benefits to employees with
domestic partners, many of whom are
homosexual. Companies and employees
alike say the policy improves morale and
can sharpen the recruiting edge.
But nobody forced the decisions.
Then San Francisco told United Airlines
it had to obey an ordinance requiring
companies doing business with the city
to offer spousal benefits to their work-
ers' unmarried and same-sex partners.
"We're surprised. ... We're disap-
pointed," said Mary Jo Holland, a
United spokesperson in Chicago.
Holland said that if United offered
benefits in San Francisco, it would
have to offer them worldwide. United
had no estimate of what such compli-
ance might cost.
United already complies with a New
Zealand Human Rights Commission
ruling banning benefits that apply only
Chechnya to hold
elections today
GROZNY, Russia - The war is
over, the Russians are gone and the
resilient Chechens say they will be
charting their own course when they
choose a president and a parliament
today to lead their tiny Muslim repub-
lic.
All the leading candidates are heroes
of Chechnya's guerrilla battle against
the Russians, and despite the devastation
of the war, most Chechens were in an
upbeat mood as they prepared to vote.
"After these elections we can put all
the confrontations behind us," said
Vakhab Vatsayev, a doctor. "After the
voting, everyone should respect the
voice of the people."
Heavy snow fell yesterday on
Grozny, blanketing the mounds of rub-
ble left behind from the brutal war that
flattened the Chechen capital and high-
lighted the dramatic decline of Russia's
once-vaunted military.
It was barely two years ago that
Russian President Boris Yeltsin sent
troops and armor pouring into

to married couples. That ruling permits
New Zealanders to nominate any ben9-
ficiary, and United now allows itS
employees in New Zealand to follow
suit.
"The beneficiary could be your next
door neighbor or your auntie,' s

spokesperson in New Zealand.

SAN FRANCISCO - Early morn-
ing rain yesterday pushed creeks over
their banks, leaving two feet of water on
a well-traveled highway and flooding
homes.
The weekend rainstorm ended by
noontime yesterday and flood-weary
northern Californians were happy there

major flooding that ravaged the region

The death toll for the Chechen war,

18,000 to almost 100,000, most of then
