Iowa last month and did not spend as
much time in New Hampshire as
Supporters spilled out of the ball-
room at the Crowne Plaza Hotel as
they cheered and chanted for McCain's
victory. Bush's concession speech was
broadcast over a loudspeaker for the
cheering mobs of people as they waited
for McCain to take the stage.
"This is the beginning of the end of
truth-twisting politics of President
Clinton and Al Gore," McCain said,
bringing wild cheers from the crowd.
McCain graciously accepted the
congratulations from his opponents.
"The Republican candidates con-
ducted this campaign in a matter that
the American people and the people of
New Hampshire can be proud of,"

McCain said. "A wonderful New
Hampshire campaign has come to an
end but a great national crusade has .
just begun."
Campaign finance reform is one of
the key issues driving McCain's cam-
paign as he tries to rile voters by claim-
ing the government is in the hands of
special interest groups and must be
returned to the people.
But a win in New Hampshire has
thrust McCain into the middle of the
race once again, adding momenturn as
he heads first to South Carolina and
then Michigan.
McCain, who visited 114 New Hamp-
shire town meetings since he started
campaigning in June, referred to the vic-
tory party as the 115th town meeting.
Although McCain has spoken much
about his policies toward social securi-
ty, campaign finance reform, tax cuts
and paying off the national debt, it is his

character that seems to captivate voters.
New Hampshire resident George
Soulia, a campaign supporter, said he
was ecstatic about McCains' victory
last night. Soulia said he supports
McCain mainly because "he's honest.
He doesn't double talk."
"South Carolina is a state that likes a
maverick," Soulia added.
Soulia said that he expects McCain
to do well in the Feb. 19 South Caroli-
na primary because of its large veteran
Teacher Nicole Niland said she sup-
ports McCain because of his views on
education and his belief that paying
teachers higher salaries can ease over-
crowding in public schools.
McCain said he felt vindicated by yes-
terday's results. "I think we finally have a
poll without a margin of error, he said.

To vote in the primary, citizens must
declare membership to one of the par-
ties when they sign in to get a ballot.
Those who do not wish to remain a
member of the party can return to the
registration table just steps away and re-
register as an independent.
This registration system "makes it
easier," Thompson said, adding that
there is "no excuse not to come out and
vote" The large number of independent
voters is "probably because if the 'Live
free or die' motto we have in this state"
Thompson said.
Citizens across the state participated
in the election, including children who
are ineligible to vote. Children were
invited to participate in a mock election
where they were encouraged to choose
from the candidates on the ballot.
"I think its important to take a part in
the electoral process," Democratic Ward
VI Captain Jean Reynolds said.
The importance of the New Hamp-
shire primary was evident to Reynolds,
who said although much of the country
has already decided who they want to
vote for, the results of the primary reaf-
firm their convictions.
She also said it may determine the
future of some candidates. "A lot of can-
didates drop out after this."
Each candi'date had volunteers sta-
tioned outside the polling centers to get
one last chance to win a vote.
Harvard University student Adam
Johnson spent the last week of his win-
ter vacation in New Hampshire answer-
ing phones, mailing campaign
information and helping out during
events for candidate Sen. John McCain
Johnson said he supports McCain
because of the senator's foreign policy
views and experience, but not every-
one was content with the choices on
the ballot. Groups of people in Man-
chester paraded through the streets
mocking the candidates.
Big Money United, a mock political
group which claims all the candidates
are supported by the wealthy and that
the winner is irrelevant, performed sev-
eral skits on the street for those walking
or driving by. "Whoever wins this pri-
mary or this election will have big
money interests in mind," Trudy True-
blood, a member BMU, said.
Another protester, who referred to
himself as "Vermin Supreme,"
announced his candidacy and hoped to
represent all politicians who he claimed
to be vermin. "Vermin Supreme" will
be traveling through several states to
spread his message, said Rebecca Simp-
son. who travels with him.

Searchers find 4 bodies at crash scene
PORT HUENEME, Calif. - The pilots of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 strug-
gled with a sudden control problem for at least six minutes before the jetliner
plummeted into the ocean with 88 people aboard, federal investigators said yes-
The last minutes of the MD-83's flight Monday may have been witnessed by
pilots aboard four other aircrafts, and the National Transportation Safety Board
was seeking to interview them.
The plane plunged from 17,000 feet and crashed nose-down in the Pacific
after the pilot reported problems with the horizontal stabilizer, a wing-like struc-
ture on the tail that controls the pitch of the aircraft's nose.
Investigators at the crash site also said yesterday they had detected an elec-
tronic pinger intended to help locate the flight recorders, which could reveal
exactly what went wrong with the stabilizer.
The search was concentrated on a debris field about 10 miles offshore and
about 40 miles northwest of the Los Angeles airport. Coast Guard, Navy and pri-
vate vessels were joined by military airplanes.
Nearly a day after the accident, searchers had pulled four bodies - one man,
two women and an infant - from the sea, which is 300 to 750 feet deep in the
area. Hopes dimmed that anyone aboard Flight 261 survived in the 58-degree


Commission calls for
restructuring of FBI
WASHINGTON - Several key fed-
eral law-enforcement agencies should
essentially be scrapped as part of a
wholesale restructuring aimed at better
coordinating the United States' fight
against terrorism, drug-trafficking and
other growing threats, a blue-ribbon
commission concluded yesterday.
The commission, headed by former
FBI and CIA chief William Webster,
recommended the virtual abolishment
of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and
Firearms and the Drug Enforcement
Administration as they now exist. Their
central duties should be folded into the
FBI, the panel recommended after a
two-year study mandated by Congress.
"The federal law enforcement com-
munity is structured to cope with the
crimes of the past, not the emerging
crimes of the future,' the commission
said in its report, which drew immedi-
ate criticism from several of the agen-
cies studied.
With 89,000 sworn officers, the
massive federal law-enforcement

establishment carries out some of the
world's finest policing, the commis-
sion said. But, at the same time, the
bureaucracy "is unwieldy, not ade-
quately prepared to meet the rising
threats and - most of all - not suffi-
ciently marshaled or coordinated," the
report said.
House vote backs
ties with Taiwan
WASHINGTON - In a broad
bipartisan vote, the House voted
yesterday to strpngthen military ties
with Taiwan, brushing aside objec-
tions by the Clinton administration
and warnings from the Chinese gov-
The 341 to 70 vote in favor of the
Taiwan Security Enhancement Act
was a stinging rebuke to the White
House, which had argued that the
measure could actually undermine
Taiwan's security by upsetting the
diplomatic balance that had been in
place since the United States estab-
lished diplomatic relations with China
more than two decades ago.


Middle East leaders
meet in Russia
MOSCOW - Foreign ministers
from Israel, several Arab countries and
elsewhere pledged yesterday to revive a
long-neglected component of the Mid-
dle East peace process amid hopes that
it can assist in the tortuous search for
final agreements in the region.
Meeting for the first time in eight
years at such a high level, ministers
representing the steering committee of
the Multilateral Middle East Confer-
ence agreed to set up a permanent
secretariat to explore economic devel-
opment prospects for the region as a
whole. They also decided to reactivate
dormant working groups to address
some of the most sensitive and diffi-
cult issues in the Middle East, includ-
ing refugees, water and the
But according to those who attend-
ed the daylong session, co-chaired by
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright
and Russian Foreign Minister Igor
Ivanov, the most significant part of the

meeting may have been the partici-
pants' unexpected receptiveness to
greater cooperation.
U.S. officials attributed much of the
upbeat mood to creative Russian hosts
who set a relaxed tone. The Russia*
hospitality began with a dinner Mon-
day evening complete with a greeting
by dancers and folk singers and a shot
of vodka for each guest.
Koreans seek WWII
army compensation
TOKYO - Koreans pressed int
service of the Japanese army during
World War 11 are pursuing a decade-
long effort to gain compensation,
despite a string of rejections in Japan-
ese courts.
Seventeen Koreans came to
Tokyo Monday - most had been
soldiers, sex slaves or laborers dur-
ing the war - to attend the final
hearing in a wartime claims suit
filed in 1991.
