OP elects house paleaders
WASHINGTON (AP) - Rep. Bob trol right now," Rep. Gerald Solomon W
Livingston collected unanimous (R-N.Y.) declared in the corridor out- °x' 7

House speaker and quickly pledged
action in the new Congress to cut taxes
and preserve Social Security. J.C. Watts,
the only black among 223 GOP lawmak-
ers, won a leadership post, too.
"There are some who insist the
Republican era is over," Livingston (R-
La.) told fellow GOP lawmakers still
reeling from the loss of seats in this
month's elections. "But that's like say-
ing the American dream is over. It isn't
true, and they know it."
He pledged cooperation with the
Democrats, then added, "We will do so
to advance Republican principles" of
less government.
Livingston, 55, a pragmatic conser-
vative and chairperson of the
Appropriations Committee with a his-
tory of working with Democrats, was
nominated without opposition to suc-
ceed Newt Gingrich as speaker.
Gingrich bade farewell to the
Republicans whom he led to power
four years ago, handed a gavel to
Livingston to signal the shift in power,
then left Washington with his wife for
a Florida vacation.

his formal ascension won't occur until
Congress convenes on Jan. 6.
Livingston's victory was sealed
nearly two weeks ago when Gingrich
stunned Republicans with a decision to
step down.
The Louisianan had already begun
campaigning for votes, and he quickly
cleared the field of opponents.
But there were lively races for
other leadership posts as Republicans
sought to retool for the congressional
session over the next two years, and
the elections in 2000.
Majority Leader Dick Armey of
Texas was re-elected, but needed three
ballots before vanquishing Reps. Steve
Largent of Oklahoma, Jennifer Dunn
of Washington and J. Dennis Hastert of
Illinois, the chief deputy whip whose
name was offered by other lawmakers
in a draft effort. Armey's margin of
victory was 127-95 over Largent on
the final ballot, after the low vote
recipient dropped off following previ-
ous rounds.
Rep. Tom DeLay (R-Texas), the
GOP whip, was re-elected without

Report: ADD hard to diagnose, treat
WASHINGTON -Doctors still don't know the best way to treat or even diag-
nose attention deficit disorder in children even though more than a million chil-
dren now take powerful drugs to control their hyperactive behavior, according to
the National Institutes of Health.
In a report issued yesterday, a panel of experts selected by the NIH called atten4
tion deficit disorder a "profound problem" that may affect 3 percent to 5 percent
of all American schoolchildren and costs schools more than $3 billion.
But a consistent, proven method of diagnosing and treating the disorder
remains elusive, the experts said.
"There is no current validated diagnostic test for" the disorder, said David
Kupfer, a University of Pittsburgh psychiatry professor and chairperson of the
panel. Some treatments are effective in the short term - principally drugs such as
Ritalin -but no studies have examined their effect on children who take them for
more than 14 months, Kupfer said.
Attention deficit disorder, or ADD, also known as attention deficit hyperactiv-
ity disorder, usually is diagnosed in school-age children, often as the result of a
child's disruptive behavior.
Symptoms include the inability to sit still for reading, study or even to watch

Some students will return home to
Ohio for the weekend to visit old friends
and attend the game.
"I have a big rivalry with my Ohio
friends," LSA sophomore Taryn Wolf
said. "It's a good excuse to see them. But
the biggest battle is finding a ticket for
less than $200."
This year's ongoing Michigan vs. Ohio
State blood battle, coordinated by the
American Red Cross Association and the
Alpha Phi Omega co-ed service fraterni-
ty, will come to a close Saturday.
Rewarded with a trophy, the winning
school will be announced at half-time.
University Blood Drive United coordi-
nators will travel to the game, hoping to

accept the award on Michigan's behalf
"We want Michigan to win both on the
field and in the blood drive," said LSA
junior Aditi Vijay, co-president of Blood
Drive United.
The rivalry intensi fies the crowd's
rowdiness, so even the Michigan
Marching Band is taking precautions.
The marching band has a policy that
forbids non-band members from cross-
ing the band's lines during the halftime
performance. On Tuesday, members
practiced ways to ward off OSU fans.
"We're not trying to hurt anyone," said
LSA senior Larry Vining, a band mem-
ber. "It's just a matter of keeping every-
one outside the band."
The Michigan men's Cross-country
team, which will travel to Kansas this
weekend for its national championship
competition Monday, is planning to
take a break from practice to watch the
"The kids on the team wouldn't for-
give me if they couldn't watch the
game," Coach Ron Warhus said.
Those going to the game may run into
New York Yankees Owner George
Steinbrenner, an Ohio State alumnus.
Steinbrenner has plans to attend the
game and may be joined by New York
Yankees shortstop and University alum-
nus Derek Jeter, said Steve Snapp. Ohio
State's director of extramural programs.
In Ann Arbor, for the second time
this year, Crisicr Arena will turn on
its video scoreboard screens and open
its doors Saturday at II a.m. to broad-
cast the football game, which is sched-
uled to begin at 12:10 p.m. All fans
may enter free of charge, and parking
is also free.

familiar face on television and before

the Sunday shooting deaths of
brothers Roberto and Luis Rueda,
who, along with Castillo, lived in
Stadium Apartments on Ann
Arbor's west side. The Washtenaw
County Prosecutor's Office issued
a four-count warrant for his arrest,
including two counts of murder and
two counts of using a firearm to
commit a felony, The Ann Arbor
News reported.
Investigators suspect the Ruedas
may have gone to Castillo's apart-
ment Sunday morning to confront
him about a dispute at a local bar
about two weeks ago.
Castillo's roommate discovered
the victims' bodies Sunday morn-
ing in his unit of the complex,
which is near Stadium and Pauline
boulevards. Police believe the
brothers were killed shortly before
police were notified at 10:56 a.m.
Castillo then dropped off the
white Toyota he was first driving at
his mother's Ann Arbor apartment
Sunday afternoon, and police
impounded the vehicle soon after-

headed toward his former home

The FBI entered the search
Tuesday, issuing Castillo's warrant
for "unlawful flight to avoid prose-
cution," FBI Special Agent Greg
Stejskal said. Stejskal said the FBI
could issue a federal warrant
because he crossed state lines as a
Gathering information from wit-
nesses has been difficult for police
because many witnesses do not
speak much English, AAPD Sgt.
Michael Logghe said Monday.
Castillo was fired from his job at
the Mediterrano Restaurant on
South State Street this past
Saturday - one day before the
murders. Manager Donald Bargos
said Castillo worked at the restau-
rant for just two weeks.
Castillo used to live in Maryland
under the name Milton Marin, and
police believed he might be headed
back there, where he still has
friends and family ties, AAPD Sgt.

Sample yields piece
of famous meteorite
LOS ANGELES -A University
of California at Los Angeles geo-
chemist analyzing a rock sample
drilled from the deep ocean muck
has discovered what appears to be
the first known piece of the massive
meteorite that wiped out the
dinosaurs about 65 million years
The tiny fossil meteorite - less
than a 10th of an inch across - is the
only surviving piece found so far of a
6-mile wide cosmic fist that smashed
into Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula at
the time the dinosaurs died off.
It left a crater about 186 miles
wide, suggestive traces of titanic tidal
waves, and chemical evidence of a
global blanket of smothering sulfuric
acid clouds.
Unearthed from under 50 yards
of Pacific Ocean sediment thou-
sands of miles from the crater, the
small fragment of oxidized iron and
nickel was found in the crucial geo-

Mexican volcano
rumble causes panic
Hundreds of people were evacuated
yesterday from villages near
Mexico's most explosive volcano,
following experts' warnings an erup-
tion was likely within days.
Volcanologists have recorded
thousands of small tremors at the
12,700-foot Volcan del Fuego-
Spanish for Volcano of Fire-and
have detected chemical changes in
waters near the mountain, 280 miles
west of Mexico City. A plume of
smoke rose from the volcano on

said Jesus Muniz Murgia, research
coordinator for the University of
Colima's volcano research center.
"Blocks of stone can be seen falling
from the summit" because of the
He said an eruption could occur
in the next day or two.
Volcanologists say the volcano is
one of the most active and most dan-

gerous in North America.
Troops and police moved a total
of about 240 people from Yerba
Buena in Colima state and from Juan;
Barragan in Jalisco state, according
to civil defense officials.
The two villages are about five
miles from the crater.
Rescue package lifts
Brazil's economy
RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -A res-0
cue package to lift Brazil's economy
out of crisis has boosted the financial
markets, sending stocks rallying and
helping stabilize foreign reserves.
Since Friday's announcement of a
long-awaited $41.5 billion rescue
package by the International
Monetary Fund and other internation-
al donors, stocks have rallied 14.6 per
cent in Brazil over four sessions.
Sao Paulo's Bovespa index closed up
2.6 percent yesterday, and is at 8,547;
nearly double its lows of September

3 more states back
tobacco settlement
NEW YORK - Ohio, Hawaii and
Idaho joined 14 other states that say they
will sign the $206 billion tobacco settle-
ment while attorneys general who have
yet to decide conferred by telephone
yesterday about the massive proposal.
The states have until midday tomor-
row to say whether they will sign the
settlement that was aimed at resolving
all remaining state claims against
tobacco companies for the costs of
health care for sick smokers.
While most states are expected to
sign, it is unclear how many will be
needed for the cigarette makers to pro-
ceed with the deal.
