y Powell said the suspension would be
perceived badly by University students
and the administration.
y."Something like this always puts a
negative connotation on the Greek sys-
v tem," Powell said.
=tPowell said he believed the reason
for the suspension seemed question-
able, based on the statement from Tri-
angle national organization.
Nate Rau, vice president of the local
chapter, said members of the local Tri-
angle chapter have not decided what

Student's family sues
after moose attack

The (Virginia) Cavalier Daily
The University of Alaska faces a
lawsuit from the family of Myong Chin
Ra, a 71-year-old student who was
trampled to death by a moose on the
school's campus in January.
Ra's family said Alaska was negli-
gent because it failed to remove the
animal.
A few days after the attack, the moose
threatened a professor. Wildlife offic-
ers finally tracked down and shot the
moose.
In a statement, Alaska claimed to
have found no evidence it was in any
way responsible for Ra's death. The
statement also said the institution will
not give public money to Alaska family
members who, according to Alaska, did
not support Ra or rely on him finan-
cially.
Alaska spokesman Mel Kalkowski
said it is common to find wild animals

"TheY're not
firiendly animals,
and people -who
live here know
that."

on/campus, especially moose, coyotes
and occasionally wolves or bears.
Kalkowski said the Anchorage,
Alaska, area experienced four or five
moose attacks last year.
"They're not friendly animals, and
people who live here know that," he
said.

M NATIONAL REPORT
Scale-back expected as debt limit nears
WASHINGTON - Faced with a ballooning public debt
and dwindling legal authority to borrow further, the U.S.
Treasury Department said yesterday it would cut back on
near-term borrowing to avoid an extraordinary financial'
crisis at the end of the month.
Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin said that in order to avoid
exceeding the legal debt limit of $4.9 trillion on Oct. 31, the
government would scale back offerings of short-term bills next
week and suspend certain borrowing from local governments.
Rubin called on Congress to increase the debt limit rather
than use it as a lever in the budget conflict between the White
House and Congress, a conflict some fear could bring finan- Dole
cial gridlock later this year.
"This is no way for a great nation to conduct its financial affairs," Rubin said in
letters to Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.) and House Speaker Newt
Gingrich (R-Ga).
Most financial experts view the notion of a genuine U.S. default as unthinkable.
In past debt-ceiling impasses, the federal government has run departments on
skeleton crews and scaled down Treasury auctions to squeeze temporary savings.

Budget cuts th reaten
Radio Free Europe
WASHINGTON - Radical cost-
cutting measures deigned to ensure their
survival now threaten Radio Free Eu-
rope and its sister station Radio Liberty.
"American taxpayers are being asked
to fund broadcasting stations in Eu-
rope, when we are having trouble fund-
ing our, own public broadcasting sta-
tions back home," complained Sen. Tom
Harkin (D-Iowa), a leading opponent
of the two stations.
Supporters argue the stations have
become the victim of indiscriminate
budget-cutting. With intense political
pressure to balance the budget, causes
without a political constituency are cut.
The radios survived the first round of
budget cuts two years ago by promising
to slash their operating budget from
more than $200 million to around $75
million. Late last month, however, their
opponents struck again. In an uncon-
tested voice vote Sept. 29, the Senate
decided to take $46 million from funds
earmarked for the radios and use it to
subsidize the operating costs of U.S.
merchant ships.

Human-rights groups argue the budget
cuts - which must be reviewed by a
congessional committee -would have
serious consequence*for free informa-
tion in the former Soviet bloc. They say
the stations provide a means of influenic-
ing debate in the countries, still in the
transition from dictators to democracy.
Drug testing at U.S.
Naval Academy
ANNAPOLIS, Md. -All 4,040 mid-
shipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy
were given urine tests for drug use after
two students were caught with LSD.,
The two midshipmen, who were not
identified, could be court-martialed or,
more likely, expelled.
As part of the investigation, the other
midshipmen underwent urinalysis Sun-
day and Monday. The results are due in
several weeks.
The academy randomly tests about
240 midshipmen each week and also
about 2,000 mids twice a year, when
they return from leave.
That testing led to the expulsion of
two midshipmen for drug possession
earlier this year.

Another French
subway car bombed
PARIS - Mocking the efforts of
desperate police, the bombers terroriz-
ing France blew up another crowded
subway car yesterday.
The bomb wounded 29 people. Au-
thorities described it as a steel canister
filled with explosives and hex nuts -
the trademark device ofAlgerianinsur-
gents who have waged a terror cam-
paign here since summer.
Rush hour was nearing full swing
when the blast shredded the second car
of the train at 7:05 a.m.
Firefighters carried victims out of the
Orsay Museum station, and commuters
described a darkened tunnel filled with
smoke and cries for help from injured
passengers.
The site ofthe attack seemed to mock
authorities' efforts to halt the terror
campaign by Algerian extremists, who
have claimed responsibility for seven
other deadly bombings or attempts. Is-
lamic militants object to France's fi-
nancial support of the military-installed
government in Algeria, a former colony.
The subway line is amain artery used
by commuters living in middle-class
suburbs south and west of the city.
President Jacques Chirac expressed
his "indignation" at the latest attack and
he said he was determined "to do every-

thing to prevent and repress this fanatic
violence."
The wave ofbombings began July25
at the St. Michel station, when a similar
device killed seven people and wounded
84. Yesterday's bombing raised the in-
jury total since then to at least 155.
Nort Korea blaed
for shooting
TOKYO - American and South
Korean military forces concluded yes-
terday that an attempt by the North
Korean Army to infiltrate the South
spurred a shooting incident near the
demilitarized zone and agreed to pro-
test jointly to North Korea, a U.S.
spokesperson said.
The incident, in which a man believed
to be a North Korean agent was shot to
death, demonstratedthat North and South
Korea remain antagonists, even as U.S.
relations with North Korea improve, said
Jim Coles, a spokesman.
Coles said it would be inappropriate
to say the incident represents an escala-
tion of tensions.
Although the shooting was the first
fatal one in three years, Coles said the
North Korean Army "constantly probes
the frontier and sends people across the
demilitarized zone" between the coun-
tries.
