caucuses scheduled for "Super Tuesday."
When asked if a candidate's military background should
have any bearing on their qualifications to be chief executive,
Bush replied that voters obviously don't think so.
"If that's the case, then Bill Clinton wouldn't even have
been elected," he said.
Army Staff Sgt. Christopher Stone of Capac, Mich., who
spent 32 days as a prisoner of war in aYugoslav Army jail this
spring, met with Bush and Engler yesterday then said he sup-
ports Bush for his politics and his character.
"Unlike the current president - he served," Stone said.
"Regardless of what capacity, he was there."
Stone said the appeals by the two governors to resurrect the
message of Veterans Day rings especially true to him.
"I have a much greater appreciation for it now;' he said
Bush's visit to Michigan came on the same day that a poll
of New Hampshire Republicans was released showing
Arizona Sen. John McCain in a statistical dead heat with the
Bush had initially jumped out of the gate with a seemingly
insurmountable lead over the other Republican candidates,
but McCain has been quickly gaining ground.
McCain, who was held captive in North Vietnam for five-
and-a-half years, campaigned across Michigan on
Wednesday and spent Veterans Day soliciting votes in New
Hampshire, where the state's first-in-the-nation primary is
scheduled for Feb. 1.
State Sen. John Schwarz (R-Battle Creek) on Tuesday
announced to Engler that he is endorsing McCain, after orig-
inally announcing support for Bush.
Engler said he doesn't expect other state Republicans to
follow Schwarz, the Senate president pro tem and a Vietnam
veteran, to leave Bush's campaign.
"We have 23 (Republican) senators;" EndIer said. "We still
have 21" backing Bush.

The bill "makes it difficult to commit
fraud in the system" and increases the
level of efficiency in the government,
Rogers said. The bill, which passed unan-
imously by both republicans and democ-
rats, Rogers said, will take effect early
LSA senior Peter Handler was among
the handful ofprotestors who waited out-
side the League room. "We are here to
express our anger over Mike Roger's
Senate Bill 306," Handler said,
The group hoped to bring attention to
the issue so that students can become
educated about their voting rights,
This bill is "setting up obstacles to
civic engagement especially at an age
when we should be civically engaged,"
said LSA senior Andy Coulouris, who
also opposes the bill.
Many audience members also ques-
tions Rogers about the bill.
The protesters approached the senator
following his speech.
"I think conservatives have always
been compassionate," Rogers said,
referring to the negative reputation that
Republicans regarding social issues
such as welfare reform and education.
Rogers spoke in support of charter
schools and said the intent of the schools
is to give students an opportunity to
develop skills in specialized fields.
Funding for vocational education is
imperative for students who are not col-
lege bound, Rogers said adding that
opportunity must be available to all.
Traditional public schools are not
ideal for all students and improvements
should be made to the system, Rogers
said adding that charter schools could
provide incentive for reform of public

Federal budget dilemma nears res lution
WASHINGTON - President Clinton and Republican congressional leaders
congratulated themselves yesterday on resolving most of their budget differences
but said they could not complete a deal until next week at the earliest.
Both sides warned of remaining trouble spots that are blocking a final agree-
ment. One key obstacle is how to make up a S6 billion gap in revenue.
House leaders canceled today's session and told members they would not neel
to return to Washington from a Veterans Day recess until Tuesday, when the Senate
is also scheduled to return.
Even so, Clinton celebrated his victory in overcoming Republican resistance to
spending a second installment of nearly.S1.4 billion for hiring more teachers to
reduce class sizes in public schools. Republicans had insisted that local school
authorities be given the flexibility to spend the money according to their own pri-
Under the compromise reached Wednesday night, local authoritl~cs could use up
to 25 percent of the money for teacher training rather than hiring new teachers.
Clinton called this compromise "truly good news for our children and for their
future. We know that school enrollments are exploding, record numbers of tea*
ers are retiring. Research is clear that students do learn more in smaller classes,
with quality teachers."

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - When
Branford senior Gregory Norris last
saw his mother and father in mid-
October, he was anxious about what
he was going to do when he gradu-

future. His father suggested he trav-

quicker than he thought it would,"
his father, Jerry Norris, said from

Perhaps Norris has taken his
father's advice to heart.

NEWPORT, R.I. --The mystery of
what caused the crash of EgyptAir
Flight 990 deepened yesterday after an
initial examination of the flight data
recorder indicated everything was nor-
mal until the autopilot disengaged and
the plane suddenly descended.
Puzzled aviation experts said
Boeing 767 jet could have experienced
a rapid decompression, forcing the
pilot to make an emergency maneuver
to get the plane to an altitude where
passengers could breathe.
Other scenarios being considered by
investigators include terrorism, sabo-
tage, hijacking or a problem with a pas-
senger or crew member on the New

Clinton gets earful
from Arafat's wife
RAMALLAH, West Bank - As a
probable candidate for the Senate,
Hillary Clinton has heard plenty in her
"listening tours" of New York But she
had to come halfway round the world, w
the Palestinian city of Ramallah, to real-
ly get an earful.
At a grant-giving ceremony ysterday,
Clinton listened politely as Suha Araft
the Palestinian leader's outsp kcn wif*,
delivered a scathing attack on "the Israev
authority's occupation" for poisonng
Palestinian air, water and ground with
toxic substances, contributing to caicer
and other diseases.
Considering that the Clinton 's detr
to the West Bank came amid a two-day
visit to Israel, Arafat's remarks seemd
awkward for the first lady. They may
also have provided partisan fodder r

Clinton's probable opponent in the New
York Senate race who has courted New
York Jewish voters for years
The episode cast dspotlight on the twc
