According to Section I of the Code,
"All proposed amendments wiji be
reviewed by the Student Relation
Committee of SACUA."
Burdi said even though approving
amendments is the decision of the
University president, the committee
has the task of advising the presi-
dent about suggestions.
"This is a new responsibility to
the committee. We are devising and
laying out the process the committee
wishes to take," Burdi said.

tion of the University community

MSA President Bram Elias said
the assembly is eager to present its
amendments but understands that
SRAC is taking a cautious route to'
implement its recommendations.
"We share SRAC's concern that
the Code amendment process is
thoughtful and sound because it is
clear that the Code is going to need
a great deal of amendments," Elias
Some of the amendments MSA is
hoping to push through include: the
right for a student's lawyers to speak
during Code proceedings and trying
only students who violate the Code
while on University property.

First, he won a pair of water skis and
then a Dodge Caravan in "The Money

Between games, Hunefeld sat in the
front row and watched the other contes-

I was giving them high fives and talk-
ing to them before the showdown, but
they didn't like me very much after the
spins." He added.
In the final Showcase Showdown,
Hunefeld competed against a University
student in the School of Social Work who
wished to remain anonymous. She ulti-
mately overbid her showcase, leaving
Hunefeld as the big winner of the day.
In the showcase, Hunefeld won a set of
power tools, a computer and a trailer,
bringing his winnings to S44,479.
"It's so loud and the microphones are
so bad that you can't really hear Rod
Roddy describing the products, so you
have to bid without really knowing what
it is," Hunefeld said.
CBS spokesperson Gayley noted that
some days the show gives away more
than $100,0(X) in prizes. She added that
all of the prizes on the show are donated
by CBS advertisers.
I lunefeld said he plans to sell one or
more of the prizes to pay the taxes he

Senate votes to raise
minimum wage $1
WASHINGTON - With eyes
cast to the 2000 elections, the Senate
voted yesterday to give minimum-
wage workers a dollar raise across
three years - but tied the increase
to $18.4 billion in business tax
sweeteners opposed by the White
President Clinton immediately
denounced the measure as a "cyni-
cal tool to advance special interest
tax breaks" and renewed his promise
to veto it. He urged Congress instead
to pass a $l-an-hour increase across
two years without the large tax cuts.
Veto threats notwithstanding,
some Republicans viewed the pack-
age as a way to neutralize a
Democratic political advantage on
the minimum wage for 2000 races.
Other Republicans were happy to
vote for a new round of tax relief, an
issue they want to resurrect follow-
ing Clinton's veto in September of
the GOP's signature $792 billion tax

EgyptAir flight data recorder located
NE-WPORT R I- The Navy yesterday morning found the flight data recorder
from EgyptAir Flight 990 and sent it by helicopter to Washington where investi-
gators will sift through its digital information for the first real clue on what brought
the Boeing 767 down.
The crash-resistant box surrounding the recorder was damaged, but specialis*
with the National Transportation Safety Board will not know whether the recorder
itself was damaged until they attempt to read it. Even if the recorder is in perfect
shape, it may take days to decipher its contents.
The flight data recorder, located 245 feet deep, contains more than 70 measure-
ments of the plane's altitude, airspeed, control surface movements, crew actions,
systems operations and other measurements.
The Deep Drone, a remotely operated underwater vehicle operating off the USS
Grapple, spotted the recorder about 5 a.m. It had been separated from its sonar
locator "pinger" but the Deep Drone happened to spot it with its video camera as
it dug toward the pinger.
The cockpit voice recorder remained on the silty bottom of the Atlantic Ocean
but salvage ships have heard its pinger.
The Magnum, a second underwater vehicle, suffered damage to its fiber optic

raised for repairs.

"This just seemed like the right
combination as far as pulling
Republicans together," said Sen.
Pete Domenici (R-N.M.). "Sooner
or later, a very significant tax reduc
tion for the American people iW
going to be achieved."
N.H. women favor
Gore, Bush in poll
CONCORD, N.H. -Vice President
Al Gore and Republican front-runner
George W Bush are getting most of their
support in New Hampshire from
women, according to a Dartmouth
College-Associated Press poll.
The gender gap could be especially
helpful to Gore's effort in the
Democratic primary, because women
tend to outnumber men among
Democratic voters in the state.
Gore held a slight lead over for-
mer New Jersey Sen. Bill Bradley,
48 percent to 41 percent, among 367
likely Democratic voters in the
nation's earliest primary. 0

Vladimir Putin rejected suggestions
from the United States that the bombing
campaign was in violation of interna-
tional conventions on warfare. A
Russian government spokesperson
rejected Yavlinsky's demands.
Russian troops also faced adverse
weather conditions of snow and dense
fog in the region. The number of aerial
bombardment sorties fell from more
