Gray said renovations will begin

AUSTIN, Texas - Elizabeth
Hanford Dole will have a prime
speaking part. So might Laura
Bush. But George W. Bush's famous
father will play a more modest role
at a GOP convention designed to
show diversity and showcase the
In an effort to attract TV coverage
in a day when the major networks'
have demonstrated little appetite for
such fare, the Bush campaign is
planning a few features that could
add a smidgen of novelty to the
minutely scripted event, which runs
four days starting July 31.
Texas Gov. Bush may forsake the
first two days of the Republican
gathering to appear elsewhere
around the country at events that
would -be beamed to the convention
hall via satellite. He could arrive in
the host city of Philadelphia at mid-
week, on the day he formally claims
the GOP presidential nomination.
The formal roll-call of states
bestowing the nomination omay take
place over three nights, rather than
one, and the convention might for-
sake the usual "keynote" address for
a series of prime-time speeches,
including appearances by retired
Army Gen. Colin Powell, Arizona
Sen. John McCain and Dole, who
delivered a successful theater-in-
the-round performance for her hus-
band at the 1996 GOP convention.
Bush has already said that he
would eschew the attack-oriented
nature of past GOP conventions in
favor of a program that would serve
more to highlight the positive
aspects of his "compassionate con-
Former Democratic candidate Bill
Bradley will campaign with Vice
President Al Gore next week, marking
the first joint appearance of the one-
time rivals since Bradley dropped out of
the presidential race more than four
Bradley will join Gore at a rally in
Green Bay, Wis., on Thursday, aides
said. The "unity event" between the
two Democrats is remarkably low key,
considering the long wait, highlight-
ing the chastm that lingers between the
vice president and his former chal-
Bradley's March 9 exit from the can-
paign marked a bitter end for the former
New Jersey senator, who clearly resent-
ed the negative attacks Gore used dur-
ing the Democratic primaries.
An aide said Bradley would use the
word "endorse' which he avoided last
March when he expressed his support
for the vice president.
Aides are hoping a warm tone
between the two men could help patch
their differences and signal solid sup-
port for Gore in the Democratic Party.
Gay ights march
held m Rome for
ROME - In a triumphant com-
ing-out party that the Vatican tried to
stop, tens of thousands of gay men
and lesbians marched through this
ancient capital Saturday to demand
an end to bias against homosexuals
in predominantly Roman Catholic
Leather-clad motorcyclists and a
Communist Cabinet minister led the
carnival-like procession, followed by
bare-breasted transsexuals, drag
queens in gaudy wigs, a provincial
priest in clerical collar, and row after
row of jubilant marchers in ordinary
Police counted 70,000 marchers,
most of them Italians.
Gay pride celebrations have drawn
larger crowds to U.S. and northern
European cities, but this was one of
the biggest in a mostly Catholic
country. And it was the rmost highly-
politicized gay event anywhere in'
years, staged despite opposition from
the Vatican, Italian rightist parties
and conservative Catholics.
The gay festival received extensive
coverage in Italy's newspapers all
week, provoking the country's first
serious debate about homosexuality.
Some commentators likened the
debate to the battles that led to Italy's
legalization of divorce in 1974 and of
abortion in 1981, both over conserv-
ative Catholic opposition.
Episcopal Church leaders Friday
approved an historic alliance with the
nation's largest Lutheran denomina-
tion, endorsing a document that recog,-

Evangelical Lutheran Church in
America - to bring the two Protestant

The landmark document, entitled
"Called to Common Mission," still
needs approval by the church's lower
legislative body consisting of priests
and lay persons. But Episcopal Church
officials said they expected no opposi-

Saturday at the denominations triennial
