inside me that I can't control that keeps
bringing me back to chocolate again
,and again,' Coquillette said.
While the specific biological effects of
chocolate may not be widely understood,
its effect on the human sex drive seems to
"Chocolate is an aphrodisiac," said
LSA junior Dan Kocevski. "It's the way
to a woman's heart."
There are other equally erotic reasons
why people are obsessed with chocolate,
Cocoa butter, the main ingredient of
quality chocolate, is craved not only for
its sweet, creamy flavor, but for its rich
"Cocoa butter melts at the exact
human body temperature," Herzog said.
"It's a very sensuous experience to have
it melt in your mouth."
The amount of cocoa butter in
chocolate ranges from a low content in
cheap candy bars to a high proportion
in expensive truffles. Higher-quality
chocolates contain up to 70-percent
Less-expensive chocolate prod-
ucts often substitute cocoa butter
with vegetable oil and wax.
While these chocolates may still
be pleasing to the palette, they will
not have the same effect on the
"The better the chocolate is, the more
cocoa butter it has," said Adam
Drewnowski, a professor of public
health, psychology and psychiatry.
"People who really crave chocolate
will not be eating Hershey kisses," he
Drewnowski has conducted stud-
ies relating endorphins to chocolate
consumption. When test subjects
were administered an endorphin
blocker, their desire to eat chocolate
But some chocolate lovers said they
don't pay attention to endorphins and
cocoa butter content.
"Some chocolates are really bad, like
Hershey's, and some chocolates are real-
ly good, like Cadbury's," said RC sopho-
more Jessica Harrison. "White chocolate
is the best."
District court strikes
down line-item veto law
ARouND THE NATION
The WVashington Post
WASHINGTON - A federal judge
yesterday declared President Clinton's
line-item veto authority unconstitutional.
The decision opens the way for a defini-
tive Supreme Court ruling on Congress'
historic move in 1996 to give the presi-
dent more control over spending.
U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan
said the law, allowing the president to
cancel funds for individual programs
within an appropriations bill, violates the
Constitution's requirement that the presi-
dent sign or veto bills in their entirety. He
said it also compromises the principle of
separation of powers by giving the presi-
dent part of Congress' lawmaking role.
"Although the Line Item Veto Act may
have presented an innovative and effec-
tive manner in which to control runaway
spending..., the (Constitution's) Framers
held loftier values," Hogan wrote in an
opinion filled with historical references
going back to George Washington as
well as comments on contemporary pol-
itics and Congress' inability "to control
its voracious appetite for pork."
President Clinton said he was disap-
pointed with Hogan's decision. But he
predicted the Supreme Court would
uphold the law. Clinton said it has
"worked well," saving taxpayers more
than SI billion since taking effect in
The line-item veto was a cornerstone
of the House GOP's "Contract With
In the Senate, key supporters Dan
Coats (R-Ind.) and John McCain (R-
Ariz.) argued that the law would give the
president a way to thwart wasteful spend-
ing that Congress could not find the will
to stop. Clinton campaigned for the pres-
idency in 1992 as a supporter of the veto
to show that he was a "New Democrat"
who would cut federal spending.
New evidence against Clinton unveiled
WASHINGTON - Retired Secret Service officer Lewis Fox arrived at fed r-
al court yesterday morning prepared to tell a grand jury that Monica Lewinsky
once spent up to 40 minutes in the Oval Office with President Clinton, his lawyer
But Fox left without testifying as prosecutors negotiated with Treasury and Justice
department officials over the propriety of compelling the Secret Service to disclo
what it knows about the president.
Officials familiar with the negotiations say Attorney General Janet Reno might
decide as early as today how to resolve the dispute that erupted when independent
counsel Kenneth Starr indicated he wanted Secret Service officers and records to shed
light on allegations that Clinton had a sexual relationship with Lewinsky, then tried to
cover it up.
Both Reno and Starr appear to favor a compromise that would allow the prosecu-
tor to proceed with certain limits, the officials said. Under this compromise, Starr
could require some Secret Service agents and officers to testify, but they would be
allowed to refrain from answering any question they believed would threaten their
ability to protect the president.
The question of Starr's access to the Secret Service gained new urgency this we
when sources said two subpoenas were issued.

El Nino expected to

WASHINGTON - The El Nifno
weather pattern that has lashed parts
of California and Florida with severe
storms and record rainfall while
warming normally frigid northern
states will continue at least through
April, federal forecasters predicted
"El Ninio is still going strong and
will for two more months,"
Commerce Secretary William Daley
said at a news conference. "Much of
the South will see increased rainfall
and cooler temperatures," Daley said.
"And much of the rest of the country
will continue to see warmer weather
In fact, so far this winter, heating
bills for much of the nation 'are about
10 percent lower than average, officials
from the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration estimated
yesterday. Temperatures in Chicago,

to 4 degrees higher than usual.

WASHINGTON - The percentage
of Hispanic teenagers who give birth has
surpassed that of African American
teenagers for the first time, with both
groups more than twice as likely as
whites to become mothers before th
turn 20, the federal government reporte'
In 1995, nearly 11 percent of Hispanic
teenagers gave birth, compared with
about 10 percent of black teenagers, and
4 percent of non-Hispanic white
teenagers. While the rates for black and
white teenagers have declined in recent
years, the figures for Hispanics have
continued to rise.

Russia critcizes U.S.
position on Iraq
MOSCOW - Russia's defense
minister accused the United States
yesterday of being "uncompromis-
ing" in dealing with Iraq and rushing
to military strikes before diplomatic
avenues are exhausted. Defense
Secretary William Cohen termed
Russia's "so-called compromises"
unlikely to end the standoff with
Russian Defense Minister Igor
Sergeyev, in an unusually strong
rebuke at the opening of talks during
Cohen's first visit to Moscow, also
warned that a U.S. military strike
against Iraq would harm the two
countries' post-Cold War military
Cohen calmly took notes during
Sergeyev's 10-minute lecture, as sev-
eral aides sat motionless with stunned
looks on their faces. Normally at such
appearances, both sides exchange
pleasantries for the cameras.
"Does the uncompromising and
tough stand over the situation in Iraq
help to strengthen stability in the
world? ... Is America ready for all the
possible consequences?" Sergeyev
quizzed Cohen, speaking through a
translator. "Force can conquer all, E
its victory is short-lived," the defense
minister added, noting that he was
