runner George W. Hush's outsized
bankroll. "The odds are oer.helm-

With a near-wistful nod to the his-
tOrie implications. President Clinton
called Dole's departure from the race "a
loss to the Republican Party and a lo' s
to the country that she couldn't go tor-

prospects for second place on any

she has not considered the vice presi-

from the twilight."
Dole's campaign attracted new voters
to the Republican Party. She finished
strong in Iowa's non-binding straw poll
in August and displayed a practiced pol-
ish on the campaign trail.
She was unable to translate that into
letter poll rankings or fund raising.

Lawyers request Waco scene recreated;
WASHINGTON - Lawyers for survivors of the 1993 Waco siege proposed yes4
terday recreating a scene with conditions similar to the standoff's final hours. Th*
high-stakes challenge to the Justice Department is a bid to prove federal agents
shot into the Branch Davidian compound.
The government long has insisted FBI agents did not fire any shots during t*
51-day siege, which ended in a fiery inferno. Some 80 Davidians died on the final,
day, some from the fire, others from gunshot wounds.
Government officials concluded the gunshot victims killed themselves or
died at the hands of armed sect members intent on fulfilling a prophecy of
mass suicide.
But lawyers who have filed a wrongful-death suit against the government con-

The lead attorney, Michael Caddell, posed a demonstration that would be attend-
ed by experts for the government, Congress and the special counsel appointed b
.Attorney General Janet Reno to investigate the siege. W
He made the offer in a letter to Justice's Civil Division, the government's legal
team in the case which is expected to go to trial next spring.

shown that "a lot more students have decided to main-
tain their non-drinking status."
The University of Illinois at Champaign has a vol-
untary program called First-Year Impact. The program
is a weekly one-and-a-half hour non-credit class that
tikes place during the first 10 weeks of classes.
While it is geared toward teaching students how to
adjust to all aspects of living away from their home.
some sessions center around alcohol abuse.
Illinois Assistant Dean of Students Rhonda Kirts
said the 750 students who are participating this year
receive a copy of the CD-ROM "Alcohol 101" for two
wveeks and then are brought together in groups to
review the content.
Developed by the University of Illinois, the Alcohol

101 program was implemented last year at 1,000 col-
leges across the country, including the University of
Michigan. Illinois sent out a survey to 600 of the
schools and received 210 responses. All respondents
said they would use the program again.
The University has placed Alcohol 101 in all resi-
dence hall libraries.
Using the CD-ROM also serves as a mandatory dis-
ciplinary action f or underage students caught drinking
in residence halls, University spokesperson Julie
Peterson said.
But LSA first-year student Ilelix G ottdiener said he
was neyer informed that the CI)-ROM existed anid
was available for student use. lie doubted that anyone
who hasn't been caught drinking knows about it.
In targeting first-year students, the University has
begun including more drug and alcohol programming
into summer Orientation. Students received a card

containing inforniation about alcohol poisoning and
potential alcohol-related scenarios to work through in
small groups.
In a committee that met last May, the University
looked for ways to reduce risky drinking of first-year
students in residence halls.
A report was published last spring suggesting sev-
eral strategies, and this morning's briefing will contin-
ue that discussion, Peterson said..
Students are also targeted tor substance abuse pre-
vention before they enter colege. After an over-
wv helmingly positixe reaction to his presentation last
year at H!uron, social wvorker Ron llarrison has formed
a series of talks called "Teens Using Drugs: How to
Know What to Do."
Harrison said he saw the need for programs involv-
ing college first-year students. "It's the first time in a
person's life that no one controls them,' he said.

FBI to warn police
about Y2K attacks
WASHINGTON -The FBI plans to
warn state and local police to be alert
for possible attacks at the turn of the
millennium by hate or apocalyptic
groups or lone wolf members of them.
"There are no specific threats, but we
often alert law enforcement agencies
about impending dates with significance
for potential terrorists,' FBI spokesper-
son Bill Carter said yesterday.
Each year, the FBI reminds state and
local law enforcement of the April 19
anniversary of the 1995 bombing of an
Oklahoma City federal building and
the 1993 federal assault on the Branch
Davidian sect outside Waco, Texas.
The bureau intends to distribute a
40-page research report, titled Project
Megiddo, named after an ancient bat-
tleground in Israel cited in the Bible's
New Testament as the site of a millen-
nial battle between forces of good and
The FBI report analyzes "the poten-
tial for extremist criminal activity in the

cance to the year 2000$' the bureau said
in a written statement. "The signifi-.
cance is based primarily upon apoca-;
lyptic religious beliefs or politick
beliefs concerning the New WorW
