Indonesia yet to choose next leader
The Washington Post
JAKARTA, Indonesia - For more than three
decades, Indonesia's People's Consultative Assembly
has been largely a rubber stamp, ratifying the appoint-
ment of presidents already in place. Now, as the 700-
' member assembly meets for its first session in
Indonesia's new era of democratic reform, no one-
including the members themselves - has a clue who
Indonesia's next president will be.
And the election is supposed to be 48 hours away.
The incumbent, President B.J. Ilabibie, made it
clear yesterday he is in the race to stay, despite huge
daily demonstrations against his rule and sharp criti-
cisms from assembly members.
"I hope to continue the struggle until the last
minute," an emotional Habibie told soldiers and secu-
rity personnel at a ceremony. "I don't want to say
goodbye. I don't want to bid farewell."

"We had no idea what these shirts
would cause. We thought that it
would humor people and make some
cash," Gillman said.
The plain blue T-shirts that partic-
ipants in Friday's day of support

all body types, maintaining an equal
relationship between men and
women, awareness of challenges

support will counteract the negative
images projected by the slogan.
"The slogan does two things, it
'reates a hunting atmosphere, the
'idea of guys preying on freshmen
for purely physical reasons and it
objectifies women. The tone of the
nessage is disheartening," she
.-The T-shirts and the messages
they send women will be formally
addressed during the rally on the
Diag on Thursday, Williams said.
"We don't want this to be just a
backlash to the shirts, but more of a
thing that would be contained in
itself as a positive show of support
for women's issues on campus,"
WIC co-Chair Riley Hoffman said.
Berkowitz and Gillman are inac-

vious allegations, Interfraternity
Council Adviser John Mountz said
the Greek System has no connection
with production of the T-shirts.
"These shirts are not endorsed or
supported by our fraternity," TKE
President Seth Timen said.

poor taste and obnoxious undertones
but it was just a personal entrepre-
neurial (venture) which they con-

"When we first found out about

Berkowitz and Gillman printed
400 of the T-shirts in mid-August
and planned to sell the shirts for S10

and sell them at other universities.

Search warrants needed for crime scenes
WASHINGTON -The Supreme Court ruled yesterdav that pohice cannot con-
duct an extensive search of a murder scene without first obtaining a warrant. The
unsigned opinion in the case of a West Virginia minister who bludgeoned his wife
to death reinforced a 1978 decision and reversed a lower court's ruling that the

James Flippo had called police in the early morning of April 30, 199%, claiming
a masked man had barged into a cabin he and his wife. Cheryl, were renting at
Babcock State Park in Fayette County. Flippo, then pastor at the Church of God in
Nitro, told police the man cut him with a knife and knocked him unconscious, and
that when he awoke he found his wife beaten to death.
Police arrived and immediately began searching the cabin and collecting evi-
dence. Opening a briefcase, officers found an envelope containing photographs of
a man who appeared to be taking off his jeans. It turned out that the man was a
friend of Flippo and a member of his congregation.
Prosecutors charged Flippo with his wife's murder, introducing the photos at
trial as evidence that he was having an intimate relationship with the man a

Some city officials said many will

efforts were made to relieve some of
the pressure. City council member
Chris Kolb (D-Ward V) said one of
the reasons the decision to allow one

made in order to protect businesses
in the Kerrytown section of the city.
Other efforts were made to relieve
some of the pressure on city resi-

Starr disclosed he tried unsuccessfully

another individual to head the investi-

Court rejects petition
to recall Ventura
ST. PAUL, Min. - A petition to
recall Gov. Jesse Ventura was dismissed
yesterday by Minnesota's chief justice,
who said the ex-wrestler didn't do any-
thing wrong by making money off a
book deal and public appearances.
The recall petition - the first in t1
state since it became legal in 1996 -
was filed by environmentalist Leslie
Davis, an unsuccessful write-in candi-
date for governor last year. Davis
claimed Ventura committed malfeasance
by using the prestige of his office to
secure a better book deal and a higher
price for his return to the wrestling ring;
and by taking gifts and favors from his
book publisher and wrestling promoter.

Alleged rebels seize
hostages from boat
BOGOTA, Colombia - Suspected
guerrillas posing as - passengers
hijacked a tourist boat off Colombia's
Pacific coast, abducting 14 men before
releasing the vessel, its captain and the
women and children aboard, the navy
Four assailants with concealed
weapons boarded the boat Saturday in
Buenaventura, a major western port,
then forced it to land at a beach where
they took away the male passengers.
No group has claimed responsibility.
But the action appeared to be another in
a wave of rebel abductions that have
increasingly exposed ordinary
Colombians to the dangers of the coun-
try's 35-year conflict.
According to the navy's report, freed
passengers said the hostage-takers
declared they were punishing the boat's
owner for refusing to make extortion
payments to the country's largest rebel
band, the Revolutionary Armed Forces
of Colombia, or FARO. The IPARC -
which finances its insurgency through
kidnappings, extortion and by protecting
the drug trade - is set to begin peace
talks with the government Oct. 24
Monk quarrel taints
main Buddhist order
SEOUL, South Korea - South
Korea's main Buddhist temple resem-
bles less a spiritual sanctuary than a for-
tified camp these days. South Korea's
largest Buddhist order is once again in
turmoil over leadership, and the thug-
gish tactics of some monks have scar,
the religion's image nationwide.
The dispute illustrates Buddhism's
often uncomfortable role in secular
South Korea, where some faction leaders
vie for control of tax-free properties and
donations from worshippers. At the tem-
ple last week, monks brandished sticks
and smashed collapsible metal chairs on
the shaved heads of rival monks. At least
10 monks and lay people were injured.
