Clinton urges unity in troubled N. Ireland
BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP)
- President Clinton visited violence-
scarred neighborhoods on both sides of
Northern Ireland's long conflict yester-
day, celebrating a successful 15-month
cease-fire and declaring, "Surely there
can be no turning back."
The first American President ever
to come to the troubled province,
Clinton implored Roman Catholics
and Protestants alike not to surrender
to the impulses of "old habits and
There was a poignant reminder of the
horror of the past and the promise of the
future when Catherine Hamill, a9-year-
old Catholic schoolgirl, shyly read a
letter to the President:
"My first daddy died in the troubles.
President addresses factory workers
It was the saddest day of my life. I still
think of him. Now it is nice and peace-
ful." Her father was slain by gunmen
who burst into his home and shot him in
front of his family in 1987.
In his main speech ofthe day, Clinton
addressed several thousand people at
Mackie Metal Plant, located along a
"peace line," a wall of steel and stone
dividing Catholic and Protestant neigh-
borhoods. The plant's workforce is
mixed but mostly Protestant. Everyone
is instructed to leave their politics at the
"You must stand firm against terror,"
Clinton urged. "You must say to those
who still would use violence for politi-
cal objectives: 'You are the past. Your
day is over."'
Clinton's peace appeals were loudly
applauded, though a lone heckler,
Cedric Wilson, twice called out,
"Never." Wilson is aligned with Prot-
estant firebrand Ian Paisley, leader of
the most extreme pro-British party, the
Democratic Unionist Party.
Nearly 3,000 officers were put on
duty to protect Clinton during his 24-
hour stay. Dozens of roads were closed,
sewers were searched and sealed, and
metal detectors were erected in Clinton's
Belfast hotel, bombed 37 times since

A crowd estimated at more than

lenge is to keep minority faculty at the
University once they have arrived on
"Wehave an enormous problem with
minority retention," Montalvo said. "I
think many members of minorities that
have been on our faculty have not stayed
as long as they could have."
Monts said that the University must
create a climate where minority faculty
members feel comfortable working.
"There are some faculty who leave
the University becausethey'don't like
the atmosphere, but ther are also a
number who leave for other reasons,"
Brewer said that minority increases

Gingrich FEC allegations 'phony'
WASHINGTON-An angry House SpeakerNewt Gingrich
yesterday curtly dismissed allegations by the Federal Election
Commission that his political organization illegally spent
$250,000 to aid his troubled campaign in 1990. But Demo-
crats renewed their call for an independent counsel to inves-
tigate Gingrich's wide-ranging political activities.
"This is the smoking gun," House Minority Whip David
Bonior (D-Mich.) said of the FEC report, issued Wednesday.
Gingrich denied that GOPAC, the organization he then
chaired, had provided him the funds five years ago. "No, they
did not. They explicitly did not," he told reporters during a Gingrich
"It is totally phony. That should answer all the questions
you have," Gingrich said. "It is phony. How can I make it clear? The word phony
should get it across to you. The FEC allegations are phony."
The FEC alleges that GOPAC spent more than $500,000 to help GOP congres-
sional candidates in 1989-90 - including at least $250,000 for Gingrich's re-
election campaign - at a time when the committee was prohibited from influenc-
ing federal elections, according to court records released Wednesday.

Aristide plans to
step down Feb. 7
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - Presi-
dent Jean-Bertrand Aristide shut the door
yesterday on the possibility of remaining
in office past his constitutionally man-
dated term, saying the impression he
would not step down was a misunder-
standing and presidential efections will
proceed as planned on Dec. 17.
He also said that if international eco-
nomic aid was cut, the United States
would face an increased tide of fleeing
boat people. Aristide said the U.S. Coast
Guard's apprehension at sea of 1,000
Haitian boat people in the past week,
more than the total for the previous 12
months, was a "warning sign" that the
international community should not
slacken the flow of aid to the impover-
ished nation. He said all those who were
fleeing were "economic refugees."
Although Aristide recently appeared
to hint that he would not step down as
scheduled on Feb. 7, he said had not
intended to give that impression. The
president said the misunderstanding
stemmed from his reluctance to risk
polarizing the nation by publicizing his
decision to leave office in the face of
defense into future
WASHINGTON - "Arm the
phasers" is a battle command that Pen-
tagon officials believe will soon move
out of the realm of science fiction.
Underan ambitious $5-billion program
that is supposed to revolutionize warfare
much as gunpowderonce did, some ofthe
top scientists in the United States are
working on a high-energy chemical laser
that would shoot lethal beams a few hun-
dred miles to knock out enemy missiles.
The 100,000-pound laser, carried in-
side a Boeing 747 jet , would be power-
ful enough to destroy targets in about
three seconds- forcing missile wreck-
age and any warhead to drop back onto
the enemy launch site.
Guiding the beam would be a com-.
puter-controlled mirror that could ad-
just its shape thousands of times a sec-
ond to offset atmospheric distortion
between the weapon and the target.
demands by his most fervent followers
to stay three more years.
Aristide's handpicked successor,
Rene Preval, is likely to win an easy
victory in the 14-candidate field.

The incident in the West Bank town

complex security arrangements being
made as part of Israel's military pull-

Israeli and Palestinian security offi-
cials blamed each other for the incident.
The Palestinians accused Israel of fail-

and the Israelis blamed the Palestinians
for failing to disarm groups operating
outside the police force.
