said the issue is a concern of Michiga-
"We've always agreed that the objects
need to be removed. The whole reason
we are here tonight is because we're
saying 'let's remove everything and put
it in a neutral location ... so Michigamua
and SCC have no contact with it until
Michigamua has a chance to meet with
the Native American community,"'
Michigamua member Bryan Ackerman
Ackerman said after having Universi-
ty faculty and staff take an inventory of
all the cultural material in the tower,
Michigamua hoped to have a dialogue
with the Native community to not only
promote healing, but to understand
which objects are offensive and why
they are offensive.
"We aren't going to understand any-
thing about the Native community until
we speak with them," Ackerman said,

Clinton, NRA contest gun safety laws
WASHINGTON - Charges of dishonesty and scare tactics flew yesterday in
a brawl between President Clinton and the National Rifle Associationover
tougher gun laws. In a mocking broadside, Clinton tore into the group for its
"knee-jerk reaction to any gun safety measure."
Clinton's accusations brought an incendiary rebuttal from NRA executive
vice-president Wayne LaPierre, who said the president exploits gun deaths for
"I've come to believe that he needs a certain level of violence in this country,"
LaPierre said. "He's willing to accept a certain level of killing to further his
political agenda and his vice president, too."
At issue was a new advertising campaign in which NRA president Charlton
Heston all but accuses the president of lying in his characterizations of the group
as an impediment to sensible laws and public safety. But the sparring was more
broadly over the president's two-track effort to use his final year to win some of
the gun controls that have eluded him so far and inject the subject into the presi-
dential campaign pitting his vice president, Al Gore, against Republican Gov.
George W. Bush of Texas.
Clinton, appearing on ABC's "This Week," said the NRA was "ruthlessly bru-
tal" in helping to defeat members of Congress who gave the nation laws such ostl

LOS ANGELES - The federal

In the current Los Angeles case,
Harold Archuleta charges that he was

The firing was sustained by a neutral
arbitrator, American attorneys Gary
Siniscalco and Oswald Cousins said.

80 bodies uncovered

KRASNODON, Ukraine - Ashen-

beneath a light snow yesterday, watch-

up the bodies of 81 people killed in a
Ukrainian mine explosion and load

Survivors of the former Soviet
republic's worst mine disaster in
decades described a confusing burst, a
suffocating cloud of coal dust and the
sickening smell of smoke before they
were brought to the surface.
A preliminary investigation sug-
gested that Saturday's accident was a
methane explosion caused by a viola-
tion of safety regulations, the Interfax
news agency quoted President Leonid
Kuchma as saying.
Ukraine's mine accidents are often
caused by methane, a naturally occur-
