want Nader campaigning in swing
"We would encourage him not to
take votes away from Gore up to and
including his dropping out of the
race," she said. "If you look at Al
Gore's record, it is the clear record
of an environmental champion."
While appreciating the ideals that
Nader stands for, Sease said, the
unlikelihood of his victory makes a
vote for him not only harmless but
"It's an indulgence that I don't
think we can afford," she said. "I
know how tempting t might be to
make a gesture (by voting for
Nader), but it's likely to get you
George W. Bush as president."
LSA senior Lee Palmer said she
will vote for Nader regardless of
what it means for Gore.
"He who gets the most votes will
undoubtedly win," she said. "If Gore
was talking about the things that
Nader is talking about he would get

Nader's votes. He doesn't deserve
unearned votes."
Meanwhile, the Gore campaign is
not too worried about the Nader effect.
"Voters who are informed on the
issues know that there are major issues
at stake in this election," said Kim
Rubey, a spokeswoman for the Gore
Despite reports that states carried
by President Clinton in 1992 and
1996 are now swing states, Rubey
said the race will not be affected.
"Internally, the research we're
seeing - we're right where we want
to be," she said.
Michigan Gov. John Engler com-
mented recently on MSNBC that
Nader does not have a big effect in
Michigan - arguably one of the most
important states in the campaign.
Engler spokeswoman Susan Schafer
said Nader's involvement in consumer
advocacy has driven him away from
Michigan's automobile workers.
Besides, she said, Bush's campaign
stands on its own in Michigan.
"We've got a strong ground game
here,"she said.

on rise in campaigning

benefit candidates have by creating
Webpages. Congressional candidates
are utilizing their sites to raise funds for
waging their campaigns.
Michigan Sen. Spence Abraham,
who is running for re-election against
challenger Debbie Stabenow, has raised
nearly $65,000 so far from Internet
Stabenow also has raised funds on the
Internet, but campaign officials were not
able to say how much.
Although Wojack does not have his
own Website, he has used other sites to
spread his ideas, including
votesmart.or- and the Michigan secre-
tary of state Website. Wojack said
although he cannot solicit funds on

these Websites, the access to free infor-
mation has been advantageous.
"We found it to be an invaluable
tool," Abraham campaign spokesman
Trent Wisecup said.
Presidential primary candidates have
also raised funds on the Internet. John
McCain, the Arizona senator who ran
against Texas Gov. George W Bush for
the GOP presidential nomination, raised
campaign funds on the Internet.
Presidential candidates are prohibited
from'fundraising for the general election.
But presidential candidates do use
their Websites.
During the presidential debates, Gore
sent periodic e-mails to address the
issues discussed, as did Stabenow dur-
ing the Senate debates last weekend.
Stabenow campaign officials said
they released information as the debate
was in progress on Michigandebate-

House GOP leaders attack budget plan
WASHINGTON - Only hours after White House and Republican negotiators
reached agreement on education spending for the year, House GOP leaders
unexpectedly torpedoed the plan, leaving budget talks in shambles and raiing
prospects that Congress would be forced to meet in an unusual post-election ses-
sion to finish its business.
House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-1ll.) and Majority Whip Tom DeLay (
Texas) upended the agreement that had been sealed with glasses of Merlot at I
a.m. Monday morning, singling out a provision long sought by organized labor
- and opposed by business - aimed at reducing cases of crippling repetitive
stress injuries in the work place.
Although their decision stunned and angered the top GOP negotiators - who
had assumed they were authorized to cut a final deal - it underscored Republi-
can confidence that the party would benefit politically by taking a confrontation-
al stance with President Clinton on the remaining spending and tax issues. It also
reflected growing concern among GOP lawmakers that the education bill was
getting too expensive.
The GOP decision drew sharp complaints of bad-faith bargaining from Cli
ton, White House officials and congressional Democrats, who charged that t
Republicans had bowed to pressure from business lobbyists to block the work-

AIDS vaccine study
ignites dispute
CHICAGO - A study suggesting a
vaccine-like AIDS treatment is inef-
fective has erupted in a public dispute
between the manufacturer that paid
for much of the study and doctors
who say the company tried to squelch
their research.
The study's conclusions, published
in Wednesday's Journal of the Ameri-
can Medical Association, echo doubts
about HIV-1 Immunogen expressed
several years ago by advisers to the
Food and Drug Administration.
The results suggest that when
added to the drug regimen for HIV-
infected patients, HIV-1 Immunogen
failed to reduce the risk of developing
full-blown AIDS.
The drug carries the brand name
Immune Response Corp., the drug's
manufacturer, contends researchers
omitted favorable data and skewed the
The company entered a fairly
common arbitration process during

which it tried to produce "a more
balanced manuscript," said Ronald
Moss, the company's vice president
of medical and scientific affairs.
Instead, the researchers violated
their contractual agreement and pub-

Freight trains collide,
force evacuations
BELLEMONT, Ariz. - Two
freight trains, at least one of them car-
rying hazardous material, crashed and
caught fire yesterday night, forcing
evacuations in the small town o
Bellemont. One engineer was missi
and at least three people were injured,
authorities said. One train rear-ended
the other about 10 miles west of
Flagstaff, and a locomotive caught
fire, said a spokeswoman for the
Coconino County Sheriff's Depart-
rnent. Authorities evacuated about a
dozen of the 1,000 people who live in
Bellemont because there was haz-
ardous material aboard at least one 4
the trains.

Sinaore Airlines
jet crashes, kills 70
TAIPEI, Taiwan -- A Singapore
Airlines jumbo jet speeding down a
runway in darkness and rain slammed
into an object before takeoff for Los
Angeles and burst into flames yester-
day, scattering fiery wreckage across
the tarmac, witnesses said. At least 70
people were killed and dozens more
were injured, a Taiwanese official said.
It wasn't immediately clear what
Flight SQ006 hit, but the collision
wreaked havoc on the plane: Video
footage showed the Boeing 747-400
spewing flames and thick black smoke
despite the heavy rain.
Afterward, parts of the blue-and-
white fuselage were badly charred,
with a gaping hole in the roof of the
forward section.
Airline spokesman Rick Clements
said in Singapore that 47 U.S. citizens
and 55 Taiwanese were among the

Hospital, wrapped in a hospital gown
and smoking a cigarette.
"It looked like the front end just fx
off," he said. "From there, it just start-

hatch with the stewardess but We
couldn't get it open. Two feet away
from me, I saw flames"
Suspects in Cale
attack tied to other
LAHEJ, Yemen - Two Yemenis
detained in the bombing of the USS
Cole are believed to have taken part
in attacks on Yemeni hotels in 1993
blamed on Islamic militants, sources
said yesterday.
The Yemenis were among nine
men detained last week for question-
ing in connection with the Oct. 12
attack on the U.S. destroyer in Aden
harbor that killed 17 U.S. sailors and
injured 39 others.
