Russia may fine two Mir cosmonauts

MOSCOW (AP) - Russia may fine
two of its own cosmonauts for history's
worst space collision, rejecting the vet-
eran crew members' claim that Mir's
worn-out equipment was to blame, an
overseer of the space station said yes-
terday.
A space commission concluded
beyond any doubt" that Vasily
Tsibliyev and Alexander Lazutkin
caused the damaging June 25 crash,
according to Valery Ryumin, the
Russian coordinator of the Mir-NASA

program.
The collision occurred during the
practice docking of an unmanned
robot spacecraft to the aging space
station.
"Personally, we felt pity for the boys,
but the facts remain," Ryumin told the
ITAR-Tass news agency. "Most likely
we will have to fine them"
Russia has a history of rewarding and
punishing its cosmonauts financially,
with cosmonaut Gennady Strekalov
saying he was stripped of some benefits

for refusing to make an extra spacewalk
from Mir in 1995.
The space program has an elaborate
bonus system that includes not only
hazardous-duty pay, but specific pay-
ments for such tasks as spacewalks and
manual dockings. For example,
Russians earn an extra $1,000 for each
spacewalk.
American astronaut Michael Foale,
who remains aboard Mir, was the third
member of the crew at the time of this
summer' accident.

GOSS

director searches.
"Two different search committees
zeroed in on Goss," Canham said.
"Goss was among the top three in the
search when I retired to take my place
and he was in the top three four years
ago."
Duderstadt said he wishes he could
have enticed Goss to come to the
University four years ago.
"I tried very hard to attract him to
Michigan, but his own ongoing com-
mitments made it impossible at that
time," Duderstadt said. "He is an out-
standing person, a strong business
leader, with a good understanding of
athletics. He has been involved with
Michigan athletics throughout the
years and he already knows a great
many people in the program. I think he
will do very well."
Canham said another search this year
would have been redundant.
"He is a very dear friend of mine,"
Canham said. "He played football at
the University when I was athletic
director. He is a great guy and I think
he will be a great athletic director"
Goss received his undergraduate
education at the University and
played football from 1966-68. He
was an All-Big Ten defensive tackle
in 1968.
Since his days on campus, Goss has
been an active part of the business
world, holding the positions of vice
president for sales of Faygo Beverages,
executive VP and general manager of
National Beverage Corp.'s Western
Shasco Division and president and
chief operating officer of PIA
Merchandising.
Through all of his business endeav-
ors, he still has not forgotten his maize
and blue roots.
In the early 1970s, Goss was a mem-
ber of the Big Ten's Black Commission,
a delegation of black athletes that
looked for ways to improve college ath-
letics. Goss also served as the president
of the Detroit branch of the University
Club, an alumni organization.
Goss will become the fourth person
to serve as athletic director in nine
years. He will inherit a bruised and bat-
tered athletic program that is currently
conducting an investigation into
alleged NCAA infractions with the
basketball team and trying to overcome
four straight disappointing football sea-
sons, in which the University lost four
games each year.
Bollinger would not confirm Goss'
nomination.
"I've spent several months looking
into questions about the nature of the
program and the type of leader the pro-
gram needs," Bollinger said.
Though the news of Goss' future
nomination has spread around the
University community, Vice President
for University Relations Walter
Harrison and Regent Philip Power (R-
Ann Arbor) said they would not con-
firm the reports
"Goss was a leading candidate in
our search four years ago and he
impressed many people very greatly"
Power said.
Michigan mens' swimming coach
Jon Urbanchek said Goss will be an
ideal person for the position.
"The athletic program at Michigan
is like a freight train - it just keeps
going. It is nice to have a new leader,
but this program will just keep
going," Urbanchek said. "We just
want to make sure that whoever is
going to be at the top continues to let
the sport blossom."

- AROUND THE NATION
Lawmakers return from sunner break
WASHINGTON (AP) - Lawmakers began returning from their summer recess
yesterday with leaders pledging not to let differences over spending bills force
another government shutdown. But they also conceded several thorny issues need
to be resolved this fall.
President Clinton, meanwhile, might see the coming weeks as a fresh opportu-
nity to use his line-item veto power.
"I'm not interested in creating confrontational issues - or avoiding then
Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-Miss.) told reporters, as he outlined the
Senate's agenda for the coming weeks.
The Senate returned from its month-long recess yesterday, and the House returns
today.
Both Lott and House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-Texas) warned that a p i-
ority item of Clinton's, so-called fast-track authority for negotiating trade agree-
ments, could be in jeopardy
Lott predicted "rough sledding" if Clinton insists on tying the authority to new
concessions to labor and environmentalists.
And little enthusiasm was voiced on either side of the Capitol for another ite
on the administration's wish list - campaign finance reform.

D.C. monument to
undergo repairs
WASHINGTON - It is the most
recognizable structure in Washington, a
555-foot high obelisk almost devoid of
decoration.
The Washington Monument is about
to become even more easily distin-
guished: Beginning sometime this win-
ter, it will become a 555-foot high
obelisk surrounded by scaffolding.
Winter is when the National Park
Service is scheduled to begin a three-
year, $5 million repair effort that will
be the most comprehensive overhaul of
the monument since it opened to the
public in 1888.
And think of it not as the Washington
Monument, but the Washington
Monument-sponsored-by-Target, the
department store chain. Target is con-
tributing $1 million, and it has helped
raise the other $4 million. This makes
Target the "corporate partner" of the
National Park Service and the National
Park Foundation - which are deter-
mined to avoid the term "sponsorship."

U.S. troops relinquish
transmitter to Serbs
SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina
- Surrounded by stick-wielding
Bosnian Serbs, U.S. troops agreed yes-
terday to relinquish a television trans-
mitter they had controlled to forces
answering to war crimes suspect
Radovan Karadzic.
In exchange, the Serbs, under the
direction of Karadzic ally Momcilo
Krajisnik, promised to end inflamma-
tory anti-West rhetoric and permit
opposition voices on the air.
Krajisnik, the Bosnian Serb member
of the country's three-man presidency,
praised the deal as a "wise" step by
NATO peacekeepers to avoid conflict
with the Serbs. Others wondered if the
Americans had blinked, having been
embarrassed by last week's bungling of
a military operation to take over pro-
Karadzic police stations.
Adding insult to injury, the newly
restored television transmission was
used last night to cancel Serbian partic-
ipation in crucial municipal elections
scheduled for Sept. 13-14.
The transmitter, on a hilltop in north-
eastern Bosnia, was seized by
American troops last week as part of a

Target raised the money so quickly that
the 'company was ready to announce
the project before the Park Service was
ready to award contracts for the work.
Federal building is
Reagan namesae
WASHINGTON - In an era ofgov-
ernment downsizing, the new Ronald
Reagan Building and Internatipnal
Trade Center stands out. Not only is it
gigantic, it also comes with a huge
price tag: $738 million.
The structure on Pennsylvania
Avenue, between the White House and
the Capitol, is the first federal building
built here in 20 years. The L-shap*
complex is the biggest federal edifice
after the Pentagon, boasting 3.1 milliQn
square feet.
Eighty-five elevators serve its 14
floors (nine above ground and five
below.) Aside from office space - a
small portion will be rented to commer-
cial users-the complex includes a 650-
seat auditorium, a 980-seat food court,
ballrooms and a 125-foot-high atrium.
campaign to shore up Karadzic foe
Biljana Plavsic, president of the
Bosnian Serb Republic. But the troops
soon became targets of about 200
angry, stone-hurling Serbs.
Media and police are the two centt
tools in the battle to gain and hold onW
power in this part of the world.
Scared chickens halt
rocket test in Japan
TOKYO - The moon is the goal of
a $250 million space project Japan
announced last week, but right no the
biggest challenge to the nation's sp,
agency might be 500 dead chickens.
Last May, when the space agency
was conducting safety tests involving
its new rockets, a blast using '0
pounds of explosives startled. 500
chickens on the northern island of
Hokkaido, apparently causing them jto
stampede and crush themselves against
a hen-house wall.
After months of investigation, an
apologetic National Space
Development Agency told chick
farmers and horse breeders it will nove
the tests to another site.
