CHICAGO - Returning to his
hometown yesterday, a place where
many old-timers call him just plainI
"Hank," Judiciary Committee
Chairperson Henry Hyde carried ther
entire public debate over impeach-
ment with him from Washington. 1
Hyde (R-1ll.) defended his inquiry
at a Chicago Bar Association lun-
aeon, where he was touted even by
'ie-hard Democrats as someone whoi
will give President Clinton a fair
shake. But praise was not everywhere.
The president of the National
Organization for Women needled1
Hyde in his own back yard about hisa
decades-old extramarital affair.
Even Robert Bennett, the presi-
dent's private attorney in the Paula
'ones sexual harassment case, made a
p in the Windy City, criticizing
Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr
for his contacts with Jones' attorneys.
The three appearances \within
hours and city blocks from each other
were coincidental, said organizers, but
they turned Chicago - which will
play host to the president and first
lady Hillary Rodham Clinton in sepa-
rate appearances today and tomorrow
- into ground zero on impeachment.
At the lawyers' luncheon, Hyde
said he is being squeezed by both the
president's fiercest critics and most
loyal defenders as he struggles to set a
middle course on impeachment.
"I would trade it for a Hershey
bar," he said of his pressure-cooker
job heading an inquiry that has not,
and may never, captivate the
American people. "Anyone who wants
it can have it."
Of course, Hyde had no intention
of giving up the reins of only the third
impeachment inquiry in the nation's
history. But he made his point: Not
one of the 100 or so lawyers at John
Marshall Law School volunteered
themselves as replacements.
Hyde also downplayed recent polls
showing declining public support for
Congress and its handling of the
Monica Lewinsky case.
Public opinion will be an essential
part of the impeachment process,
Hyde acknowledged. But he suggest-
ed that it will have more influence if
the full House votes articles of
impeachment against Clinton, which
would then be sent to the Senate.
From the very outset of the space
age, scientists and physicians worried
about how the human body would react
to the weightless environment. Some
worried that astronauts' eyeballs would
lose shape, affecting their vision, or that
the space travelers would have trouble
swallowing food. Neither proved true.
But when humans venture into
orbit, as John Glenn and his crewmates
are scheduled to do on Oct. 29, discon-
certing things do begin to happen:
Motion sickness is typical during
the first day or two as the space travel-
er struggles to regain a sense of orienta-
tion in an environment where "up" and
"down" no longer apply.
With no pressure on the verte-
brae, the spine expands and the astro-
naut can "grow" up to two inches.
Body fluids that normally pool
in the lower torso and legs under the
tug of gravity now begin to shift
toward the head, swelling the face and
neck. The fluid shifts, which the body
interprets as a volume overload, trig-
ger a cascade of other events: the kid-
ney filtration rate increases, the vol-
ume of blood plasma drops, hormone
Muscles required for walking and
maintaining posture fall into disuse and
begin to atrophy. Bones, subjected to
decreased stress and weight bearing in
space, begin to lose density.
Still, researchers have learned over
the years that the body is surprisingly
adaptable to the rigors of space.
Astronauts and cosmonauts find that
weightlessness becomes manageable,
even comfortable, although we now
know there is a price to be paid when
they return to Earth.
"That very unnatural environment
of zero gravity becomes the norm for
you," says Andrew Thomas, a U.S.
astronaut who spent more than four
months on the Russian space station
Mir earlier this year. Thomas had a
shaky reintroduction to Earth's gravity.
Upon leaving the space shuttle that
retrieved him from orbit, he walked ten-
tatively to a crew van.
"It's a very strange feeling to go
through that, to stand up for the first
time," he recalled a few weeks later.
Thomas suffered balance problems and
nausea, which cleared up within about
