most notable characteristics."
Rackham first-year student
Francesco Accola said he has enjoyed
Bolcom's music classes because the
professor is full of wit, irony and
knowledge.
"He has a great knowledge of not
only music but the arts in general,"
Accola said. "He answers every ques-
tion very deeply."
English Prof. Alice Fulton called

Bolcom one of the greatest composers
of the 20th century.
"What he said applies not only to
music but all the arts in America,
Fulton said.
Bolcom received a Pulitzer Prize
for his piece "12 New Etudes for
Piano." He is also a member of the
American Academy of Arts and
Letters and the recipient of numerous
awards including the Henry Russel
Award in 1977, two John Simon
Guggenheim Fellowships and the
Governor's Arts Award from the state
of Michigan.

The Washington Post
WASHINGTON - The emotionally
charged issue of a contentious abortion
procedure was back in the congression-
al spotlight yesterday in a bitter and
bruising House-Senate hearing as GOP
lawmakers renew their effort to outlaw
the technique.
Opponents of the method, which
anti-abortion forces call a "partial-
birth" abortion, have been bolstered by
an abortion-rights advocate's admission
last month that he did not tell the truth
about the number of such procedures
and the conditions of the women who
undergo them.
"A very important issue here is that
Congress was lied to," Rep. Ed Bryant
(R-Tenn.) said, referring to the argu-
ments against the ban made by abor-
tion-rights groups over the last two
years.

The House Judiciary Committee is
scheduled to meet tomorrow to draft
legislation making it a crime for any-
one to perform the procedure, known
technically as "intact dilation and
evacuation," which some physicians
use to remove a relatively large fetus
from the womb in one piece. The only
exception would be to protect the
woman's life. President Clinton vetoed
similar legislation last year.
The House is to vote on the measure
next week.
The procedure involves pulling the
fetus out of the birth canal, feet first.
The surgeon then punctures the back
of the fetus' head, sometimes with
surgical scissors, and removes the
brain, permitting the skull to be par-
tially collapsed and brought through
the cervix, the narrowest part of the
birth canal.
Senate
agrees to
funding
probe
o Unanimous vote
expands campaign
financing investigation
WASHINGTON (AP) -- In a turn-
about prompted by defections among
their own, Senate Republicans agreed
yesterday to a broader investigation of
campaign financing that would include
huge donations that aren't necessarily
illegal.
On a pair of 99.0 votes, the Senate
voted to expand the reach of the inves-
tigation and appropriate $4.35 million
to cover its costs. Sen. Christopher
Dodd (D-Conn.) voted present on both
votes, citing his co-chairmanship of the
Democratic National Committee the
past two years.
The change came after
Republicans suddenly found them-
selves short of votes - and con-
cerned that their original scope would
have prevented an investigation of
White House coffees and sleepovers
for big donors.
It also might have precluded investi-
gating the $50,000 campaign donation
that a California businessman brought
to the White House and handed to
Margaret Williams - chief of staff to
Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Democrats had been pushing for
inclusion of "soft money"-unlimited,
party-building donations by corpora-
tions, unions and wealthy individuals
- because Republicans collect more
of it. For the 1996 election cycle,
Republicans took in $141 million in
soft money while Democrats raised
$122 million.
Republican leaders had crafted lan-
guage that would have allowed the
Governmental Affairs Committee to
investigate only illegal activities sur-
rounding the 1996 elections.
This would have left out soft money,
because these donations are not against
the law. When Republicans agreed to
include "improper" activities, the reso-
lution passed, 99-0.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said he
was among the Republicans - as
many as eight - who argued in a pri-
vate lunchtime caucus against the orig-

inal GOP plan.
"If you said, 'Maggie Williams, you
come over and testify,' they say 'No,
that's not illegal,"' McCain said. "It
may be improper but it's not illegal."

Senate begins investigation of Lake
WASHINGTON - CIA Director-designate Anthony Lake defended his integri-
ty and pledged cooperation with Congress as the Senate opened his confirmation
hearings yesterday amid Republican demands for more documents.
The long-delayed Senate Intelligence Committee hearing provided Lake his first
chance to testify on his own behalf since early December when President Clint
nominated him to be the nation's top spy.
Lake addressed questions about whether he would be forthcoming. with
Congress and said glitches in the management of his personal stock portfolio
were inadvertent. He also pledged to give Clinton unbiased intelligence analysis,
even on policies he helped craft over the past four years as national security
adviser.
"The intelligence community must supply the president with the best, unvar-
nished information," Lake said. "We must have an intelligence process of absolute
integrity."
Addressing concerns about CIA morale following spy scandals and failed eco-
nomic intelligence operations, Lake said, "I will challenge our analysts and ope
tions people to tackle hard problems and take on new challenges, even at great
risk of controversy. And I will see that they are rewarded, even if they fail, provid-
ed they acted skillfully and properly."

Truman Doctrine
celebrates 50-year
anniversary
WASHINGTON -It was late on a
wintry Friday afternoon when
Undersecretary of State Dean Acheson
got the bad news from the British. Two
official documents informed him that
His Majesty's Government, its econo-
my crippled, could no longer continue
aid to Greece and Turkey, leaving both
countries vulnerable to Communist
conquest.
"They were shockers," Acheson
wrote later of the British messages. He
quickly passed the word to the White
House, and within three weeks President
Truman responded to the crisis.
Tomorrow marks the 50th anniver-
sary of his proclamation of the Truman
Doctrine, a speech to Congress that
pledged U.S. support for Greece,
Turkey and other nations threatened by
communism.
It was a decision that fully engaged
the United States in a face-off with the
Soviet bloc, and changed the course of

history.
"It was the opening shot inr the Cold
War," said Truman biographer Alonzo
Hamby, the beginning of what
President Kennedy would later call "a
long twilight struggle" that would c
tinue until the collapse of the Sovi'
Union.
FBI, White House
quarrel over China
WASHINGTON - The awkward
spat between the White House andFBI
over China is the latest strain in-rla-
tions between President Clinton and h
own Justice Department.
The history of the relationship is dot-
ted with "painful past experiences,"
leading to the establishment of formal
procedures for contacts, presidential
spokesperson Mike McCurry said.'
Tensions were raw yesterday from
the quarrel between the White House
and FBI after Clinton complained he
was not told about the agency's suspi-
cions that China was trying to irl
ence U.S. congressional elections.

Yeltsn promises
Cabinet shake-up.
MOSCOW - Heads will roll in the
Russian hierarchy, President Boris
Yeltsin vowed yesterday in announcing
an impending government shake-up
aimed at stirring new life into a stag-
nant reform movement.
Making good on threats issued in his
state of the nation address five days
earlier, the recently invigorated =66-
year-old president promised a major
streamlining of the unwieldy Cabinet
that has swelled to include SO minis-
ters, agency chiefs and commissioners
- even as debts, tax dodging and cor-
ruption have flourished.
Yeltsin named no names on the hit
list, but his aides made clear that Prime
Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin and the
increasingly powerful Anatoly Chubais
- named first deputy prime minister
Friday - would be the only ministers
not expected to turn in their resigna-
tions.
But in keeping with long-standing
Kremlin traditions of illusion and

intrigue, titles mean less than the per-
sonal clout of those who hold them.
Chubais, the most ardent advocate of
capitalism in the Yeltsin camp, is like
to emerge as de facto head of both the
Kremlin administration and the new
Chernomyrdin government; with a
mandate to jump-start the stalled eco-
nomic revolution.
Vietnam to censor
Internet information
HANOI, Vietnam - All infort*
tion coming into Vietnam through the
Internet will be censored and the gov-
ernment announced yesterday it' Will
control who has access to on-line ser-
vices.
It also will limit the gates through
which Internet servers in Vietnam are
linked to the world's largest informa-
tion network.
The new regulations were widely
publicized in the country's sta
controlled media.
