spending cuts. The program put the
government on a path toward four
straight years of declining budget
deficits. This year, however, it's expect-
ed to resume climbing.
In his first two years, after Clinton's
pleas to Congress, lawmakers passed
the Brady gun-control law, the family
and medical leave act, a scaled-down
national service program, the motor
voter registration act, the North
American Free Trade Agreement, a
direct loan program for college students
and a crime bill to put 100,000 cops on
The president's program stalled in
1995 after the Republicans threw the
Democrats from power in Congress,
taking control of the legislative agen-
da and shaking Clinton's confidence.

BELGRADE - Students and politi-
cal protesters by the tens of thousands
peacefully demonstrated their defiance
of Serbian President Slobodan
Milosevic in the streets of Belgrade
yesterday despite exceptionally tough
police tactics earlier in the day that
injured dozens of people.
The massive peaceful turnout
appeared to have pumped new life
back into the tired ranks of students
and other protestors who daily for 11
weeks have demanded Milosevic
reinstate the victories of the Together
opposition in Belgrade and 13 other
cities in the Nov. 17 municipal elec-
tions. Symptomatic of the renewed
defiance was the march of as many as
20,000 Belgrade University students
through the city and their massive
presence later at a Together coalition
With nary a traffic policeman in
sight, the students purposely walked
across the Brankov bridge linking
Old and New Belgrade where hun-
dreds of security forces Sunday night
fired water cannon and used trun-
cheons against protestors staging a sit
down. Among those beaten was veter-
an human rights campaigner Vesna
Pesic, who heads Civic Action and is
one of three Together leaders. Only
brief late afternoon scuffles broke out
yesterday when riot police reappeared
in large numbers to prevent protestors
attending the daily opposition rally
from marching home.
Why the embattled Serbian presi-
dent resorted to violence early yester-
day - the most serious involving uni-
formed security forces since 1991,
according to many Serbs - remained
unclear. Together leaders and ordinary
citizens produced widely differing
Opposition sources said as many
as 100 protestors were treated
overnight in hospitals and clinics for
everything from broken limbs to
chipped teeth after riot police
equipped with shields, batons and in
some cases automatic rifles began
swinging into action shortly before
After yesterday's brief skirmishes,
four students and three other demon-
strators required medical attention.
Aleksander Tijanic, a veteran jour-
nalist who resigned as Information
Minister in protest against the regime's
refusal to accept Together's municipal
election victories, said in an interview
"it's a big mistake to look for sense in
"What we are seeing is not Frank
Sinatra strategy but Doris Day," he
said. "This is not 'I Did It My Way,'
but 'Que Sera Sera.' Milosevic is not
willing to give the opposition any-
thing - he's got no political answers,
he's just playing Russian roulette and
playing for time."
To the delight of the large crowd at
the afternoon rally, Democratic Party
chief Zoran Djindjic, one of the three
Together coalition leaders, said
"Milosevic first lost the elections,
then his sense of measure, then he
lost face and yesterday he lost his
Clinton budget to cut costs for Medicare '
WASHINGTON -The cost to Medicare beneficiaries of surgeries and tests per-
formed while they are hospital outpatients would fall sharply - in some instances
by more than half - under a provision in the budget that President Clinton will
submit to Congress Thursday.
A hernia repair, for which beneficiaries now typically pay $519, would cost oni
$212, according to the National Committee to Preserve Social Security ai
Medicare. A diagnostic colon test, which costs the average beneficiary $164,
would carry a price tag of $79.
Altogether, a Clinton administration official estimated yesterday, the change could
save the nation's 38 million Medicare beneficiaries $13.4 billion over six years.
But it would cost the government nothing. The entire burden would be borne by
The proposal would fix what many in Washington see as an unintended inequity
that forced Medicare recipients to pay more for outpatient care, in which a person
undergoes surgery or diagnostic procedures without checking into the hospital,
than they do for inpatient treatment.
"We view this as an important reform to protect beneficiaries from paying olS
of-pocket costs not intended by the Medicare program," the administration officjf
said. "This was a glitch that developed over several years."

Clinton praises Peru
on hostage standoff
WASHINGTON - During a hastily
arranged meeting at the White House
yesterday, President Clinton openly
praised Peruvian President Alberto
Fujimori's handling of the 49-day
standoff with leftist guerrillas who hold
hostages at the Japanese ambassador's
home in Lima.
"The president told President
Fujimori that he was skillfully walking a
very fine line ... between resolving this
crisis peacefully without giving in to ter-
ror," White House spokesman David
Johnson said after the visit, which also
included Vice President Gore and
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
"(Clinton) told (Fujimori) that it is a
hard line to walk but it's the right one,"
Fujimori landed in Washington on
Saturday after an emergency weekend
summit with Japanese Prime Minister
Ryutaro Hashimoto in Toronto to dis-
cuss the hostage crisis. Tupac Amaru
Revolutionary Movement guerrillas
stormed the Japanese Embassy's resi-
dence during a reception on Dec. 11,
taking more than 400 persons captive.
They continue to hold 72 hostages,
nearly all of them Peruvians.

Pakistan gets new
leader in election
LAHORE, Pakistan - Nawaz
Sharif - once ousted from the prime
minister's job in a corruption scandal
- claimed election victory yesterday
over Benazir Bhutto, who was labeled
incompetent and fired from the pre-
Bhutto's supporters attributed her
apparent failed bid for vindication to
election fraud. She had vowed to reject
the results if she lost.
Independent election observers
reported no serious irregularities,
although reporters saw scattered inci-
dents where women were forced from
the polls in one province. The
observers also noted a general apathy,
and the 26-percent turnout in parlia-
mentary elections - a record low -
reflected widespread despair over the
state of Pakistani democracy.
Although Bhutto was charged with
corruption and incompetence upon
her ouster in November, she was
allowed to run against Sharif, whose

short in 1993 by charges of dishon-
