WRESTLING

for everybody. This is good for our
sport and now college wrestling will be
around for many more decades to
come. "
Campbell University Athletic
Director Tom Collins commended the
NCAA's "sound" action, adding that the
association's reactions have mirrored
decisions at Campbell.
"I think weigh-in is a good goal
change and also the clear elimination of
the rubberized suits and the not boxes,"

Collins said.
Echoing Goss' confidence that the
NCAA is moving in the right direc-
tion, Collins said he trusts the people
who are reshaping the way in which
collegiate wrestlers train because
they are experts in their respective
fields.
"They're people who want the sport
of wrestling to be successful," he said.
The NCAA Wrestling Committees
plan to make further guidelines at
their annual meeting April 6-10 in
Kansas City. Members of the com-
mittees intend to examine weight-

loss behavior.
The Food and Drug Administration
and the Center for Disease Control and
Prevention are expected to give their
input to the NCAA's Wrestling
Committee and the Competitive-
Safeguards Committee before April.
Mike Moyer, who chairs the NCAA's
Wrestling Rules Committee, said the
committee anticipates more long-term
changes after the wrestling season is
finished.
"The committee recognizes that no
rules guarantee the safety of partici-
pants, but believes these measures will

promote safety in our sport," Moyer
said in a written statement. "Therefore,
the committee urges compliance with
both the letter and the intent of all of
these changes.
"Nothing is more important than
the safety of our competitors," he
said.
The long-term changes "ideally
will allow wrestlers to focus on com-
petition rather than making weight
and also maintain competitive equal-
ity within the weight classes," Moyer
said.

Visa scam brought foreign nurses to U.S
WASH INGTON - A fter a three-year investigation, a federal task force has bro-
ken up a major visa fraud conspiracy that brought hundreds of foreign nurses into
the United States, mostly from the Philippines, and put them to work for substan-
dard wages at nursing homes in Texas and around the country, authorities said yes-
terday.
Officials of the State Department's Diplomatic Security Service, which led the
interagency task force, said the probe was the largest visa fraud investigation ever
conducted in the United States;
It led to guilty pleas in federal court in Lubbock, Texas, by five defen-
dants yesterday, including the man at the center of the ring, Billy Denver
Jewell, the owner of a chain of 22 nursing homes in Texas and Oklahoma.
The four others, who helped recruit the foreign nurses, included immigrants
from the Philippines and South Korea. All pleaded guilty to various federal
charges related to visa fraud and alien smuggling, U.S. Attorney Paul
Coggins said.
The investigation is continuing and may eventually lead to dozens of otl
indictments, federal agents said. They said they identified more than 2,000 felot
counts against Jewell, but decided to press only three in return for his help in net-

Court hears case on
lobbying groups
WASHINGTON - The Supreme
Court heard arguments yesterday on
whether lobbying groups that con-
tribute to political campaigns must
comply with federal rules requiring
them to disclose how their money is
collected and spent.
But the justices appeared preoccu-
pied by threshold legal problems and
suggested they are unlikely to use the
case involving the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee to decide
whether groups that mostly lobby elect-
ed officials but also give to candidates
must comply with disclosure rules.
If the court were to rule on the mer-
its of the case, it could bring new
scrutiny to organizations that mostly
lobby but also spend some portion of
their time trying to influence elections
through contributions.
The justices focused most of their
queries on whether the people who sued
the Federal Election Commission about

in which foreign nurses were recruited
its definition of "political committees"
had legal standing. They also questioned
whether key FEC policies are sufficient-
ly in flux that a ruling on the particulars
of this case would be untimely.
Lawmakers unite on
managed health care
WASH I NGTON - After some frac-
tious fights, President Clinton and con-
gressional Democrats staged a show of
unity yesterday for a proposed patient
"bill of rights" to guard against abuses
in managed-care health plans.
"We have to make this change becal
of the changes in the American health
care market," Clinton said. About 100
million Americans have been enrolled in
cost-saving managed care programs,
patient complaints have been rising.
Clinton said he was encouraged that
many Republicans support such an
approach, and Vice President Al Gore
said opponents are "going to be sur-
prised at how many Republicans cot
over and join our side in this battle:.

Indonesian president
monopolizes country
JAKARTA, Indonesia -
Indonesia's embattled President
Suharto, seeking in one grand stroke
to restore confidence in his nation's
battered economy, is set to announce a
reform package today morning that
includes reducing official favoritism
for companies controlled by his
wealthy children, according to govern-
ment officials familiar with the plan.
Final details of the package were
still being hashed out in the early
hours of today morning between the
Indonesian authorities and a team
from the International Monetary
Fund led by its managing director,
Michel Camdessus. The package is
designed to accomplish what a $43
billion bailout launched in November
for Indonesia couldn't -stem a mas-
sive flight of capital from the world's
fourth-most-populous country that
has marked one of the gravest turns
in Asia's financial crisis.
The plan has been eagerly anticipat-
ed this week in financial markets as a

potentially crucial turning point in the
crisis, and the mere fact that it was
imminent helped fuel a powerful ra v
in Asian currencies and stock pri
yesterday. Indonesia's currency, the
rupiah, which was in free fall last
week, soared 10 percent against the
U.S. dollar, and Jakarta's benchmark
stock index rose 6 percent.
Israeli cabinet takes.
hard line on pull out
JERUSALEM - The Israeli
net, staking out a hard line ahead o
negotiations in Washington, insisted
yesterday that it will retain perma-
nent control of certain chunks o
West Bank territory it has occupied
since capturing it in the 1967 Middle
East war.
The cabinet offered just genera
descriptions of the territory it is deter
mined to keep, and it did not provide a
map or percentage of the occl
lands it is willing to cede eventually
Palestinian control.
