Arroyo Variety News Staff COMMONWEAL TH leaders are in the thick of preparations for a planned trip to Manila later this month to meet with Philippine officials over labor concerns, including the current worker ban. According to House Speaker Diego T. Benavente, he and Lieutenant Governor Jesus C. Borja have agreed to seek audience with pertinent officials of the Philippine Department of Labor & Employment (DOLE) to once and for all address the labor issue. Governor Froilan C. Tenorio has given the proposed trip his blessings, saying he's leaving it all up to Borja to decide on how to deal with the RP ban issue.

Citing a sketchy poli~e report, DPS spokesperson Sgt Edward Manalili said the woman filed the complaint at 8: 16 a.m.t claiming she was allegedly sexually assaulted by a man. No arrest was made yet.

A source. however disclosed that the complainant was a Filipina housemaid who alleged she was raped by the father of her employer.

"He knows how feel about this as we have discussed this matter. So he knows what to tell the Philippine government," he added. According to Tenorio, the goal of the Manila trip is definitely to get the ban issue resolved for the benefit of both sides. " just want our two governments to have better relations. When it comes to something like this, leave it up to the lieutenant governor to decide. He knows how feel, what's good fnr the CNM and for the Philippines," the chief executive added. The lieutenant governor in a speech last Sunday said it's about time the CNM and the Philippine governments ralk on labor concerns again rather than let people from both sides agonize over the situation here. Borja in September 1994 met with RP Labor officials leading to the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the DOLE and the CNM government, which among other goals established a labor dialogue process.

Cabrera over a public works contract she allegedly refused to sign. Previous to that, Cing' s brother, Labor & mmigration Secretary Raynaldo M. Cing also quit, saying political differences between the governor and the senator is getting to him. Not too long before that, Attorney General Richard Weil also quit his post citing family and health reasons. Before him, there were Planning & Budget Special Assistant Gregorio C. Sab}an, Labor Director Gonzalo Santos and Public Works Secretary Elizabeth Salas-Balajadia. n a telephone interview with the Variety Tuesday, Cing said he feels it is his committee's task to get to the bottom of the recent resignations and report out what is really happening within the Tenorio cabinet. According to Cing, when the time comes for the committee to hear replacement cabinet appointees, he would like to hear from the governor himself.

Damage control is the goal - that is, looking for ways to prevent a spillover from the war and trying to restore the credibility of the United NationsandNATOaskeepersofthe nonexistent peace in the fonner Yugoslavia. The Halifax summit brings the leaders together at an embarrassing and uncertain point in the bloody history of the Balkans. They will talk about bolstering the U.N. force and weigh new overtures to Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic, but there is nothing concrete to consider. " would not anticipate that this summit would break new ground on Bosnia," Secretary of State Warren Christopher said ahead of the meetings. On the eve of the summit, Clinton cautioned the Bosnian government not to expect a military solution to the three-year conflict. And French President Jacques Chirac, appearing with Clinton at the White House, warned Bosnian Serbs that afrench British rapid reaction force being assembled won't tolerate any interference. Clinton and Chirac discussed Bosnia as thousands ofbosnian government troops were massing out- Gov't forces )attack rebel Serbs north of Sarajevo By SAMR KRLC SARAJEVO,..

"The Muslims are attempting another stupidity, but they'll never succeed,"gen. Milan Gvero, deputy commanderofbosnian Serb forces, told reporters at a. meeting of the rebel Serb leadershlp on Mt. Jahorina, one of the peaks soaring around Sarajevo.. "A big offensive around Sarajevo has.started," Momcilo Krajisnik, a Bosnian Serb leader, told reporters. "tonly confirms that the Muslims are try fog to open Sarajevo by force.

The United Nations, hamstrung by continued Bosnian Serb detention of 26 of more than 3 70 peacekeepers takenhostageafter NATO airstrikes last month, has takeil in creasing risks to try and feed Sarajevo and thus dampen government enthusiasm for a military attack to break the city's siege. But early Thursday, the government declared an unprecedented general alert across all the territory it controls in Bosnia. State radio ordered citizens to stay indoors and to prepare and equip shelters with food and water. The nterior Ministry moved curfew at night from 11 p.m. to 9 p.m. side Sarajevo, vowing to break the Serb's three-year siege of the Bosnian capital. Clinton said he did not view that as a positive development. The administration believes that a "continued pursuit of diplomacy of-. fers the best hope of saving the. Bosnian state and minimizing casualties," Clinton said. "n the end, a military solution is not available to the Bosnian government." At the moment, U.S. military policy apparently has retreated to Square One - keeping U.S. troops away from the war, but making them available in the event of an emergency evacuation of the French, Brit - ish, Dutch, Canadian and otherpeacekeepers of friendly nations. n Halifax, Ointon, Chirac and British Prime Minister John Major wiu work together on a common objective; To rail y support for the embattled U.N. Protective Force so that it can stay in Bosnia. U.N. Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali is seeking to expand it by 2,500, to include the reinforcement, of rapid-response brigades. Even so, withdrawal by the fall is highlyprobableifpeacetalksdonotget underway or the peacekeepers are still being shot at or seized. On thediplomatic front, the dilemma is how to engage the Bosnian Serb leader, Radovan Karadzic, who ha, resisted all peace proposals and daringly targeted the U.N. peacekeepers, managing thereby to force a suspension of NA TO air strikes. The last U.S. maneuverwa, to trv to drive a wedge between Milosevic md Karadzic by offering to suspend U.;\. economic sanctions against Serbia in exchange for recognition of Bosnia and Croatia a, independent countries. The Serbian leader turned down U.S. negotiator Robert Frasure. who will be in Halifax, and reportedly is providing war materiel to the Bosnian Serbs despite a pledge last year to cut them off. 'Toe negotiations with Milosevic are on hold for the time being," one senior administration official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. 'The summit is an opportunity to consider lhe results of the heavy activity of the past three weeks or so, and to start formulating as~." The Europeans, who have carried theburdenofdangerousgroundoperations in Bosnia, are getting a lift from lhe prospect of American troops par. ticipating in an evacuation. Still, the anxiety level is high. "We would like to prevent what wolild be so dangerous lhis summer. a widening of thewarin Bosnia," saidnicholasbwm, lhe State Department spokesman. All the leaders in Halifax obviously concur. Chancellor Helmut Kohl of Germany, is tiptoeing lhrough the mine field. Gemiany is partofthe five-nation Contact Group struggling to find a diplomatic formula to end the war. But with no Gemian troops on the ground, "we are bad advice-givers," a German official said. Canada, on the other hand, has a large stake. At least 55 Canadian peacekeepers were seized by the Serbs last month as hostages, including a captain depicted worldwide handcuffed to a pole at an ammunition dump. Most of the hostages have been released, bur 12 Canadians rem;iin in Serb custody. Boris Yeltsin. trying to edge Russia more directly into the G-7 deliberations, is likely to avoid any sharp differences with the other leaders over Bosnia, though he also is apt to plug for diplomacy as preferable to military action. 1 ~ifath ier'' 1DAY ~\ '...

People must pay for good health care-abraham He revealed that the Center will be losing about 20% of staff over the next few months and will lose even more in the following months as their contracts expire. /samu J. Abraham By Ferdie de la Torre Variety News Staff DEPARTMENT of Public Health Services Secretary Dr. samu J. Abraham has underscored the need to collect health services fees in order to maintain good services at the Commonwealth Health Center as one of the alternatives for the costly medical referral program. Abraham pointed out that health services cost money so CHC must collect the fees to stay on business. "f people want good services, they should be prepared to pay for them. We aim to be selfsufficient and even realize a profit," he told a group of journalists recently. Abraham explained that the CNM Medical Referral Pro- 1 1i11. gram has cost the government millions of taxpayers' dollars. The money represent only the beginning of the cost potential that accounts in part for the tremendous increase in health care costs in recent years. Governor Froilan Tenorio cut the referral program for lack of budget as the program is running far over budget. Only $2.9 million was appropriated for the program under Public Law At least another $6 million is needed to meet the projected needs in FY The DPHS secretary said some people believe the government should continue to support sophisticated types of treatment and the costs connected with them. "But the economic reality is there-there is no money to support the medical referral program anymore," Abraham pointed out. One of the alternatives, he said, is like in every other country in the world, people in the CNM should simply have to accept the fact that they have taken more individual responsibility for own health, both through lifestyles and by getting some yrotection through insurance. --:,_; t..."'s... o.nll'i... ~ t.o. ~..e. t, r rc.. c... c. :...~ r,. lillfffliilllt:i~~\!: a..r..,..o..lli. o.....nu1 n. i. a. ~w.. u:. r~..u..ea~......s.. l...a... n.e d. r...d ~.fil....t.. ~..e h u. ciili..et.. :...~. l..m e.s. ~. s '.'... b.s. h..h. l :..ee an..... fs.... u :... tu.t.. a... i. re s..... s..".. ru..c '.. e..

Citing comments by a U.S. based inspection team which recently visited CHC last February, the secretary assured that the services offered at the hospital are considered comparable to those of any excellent county hospital in the U.S. "Other governments in the Region are already looking to our Center as a training site for their health personnel, which surely indicates we have more and better services th~n they do," he said. Abraham claimed that the Center not only has the basic care but also offer specialties such as Ophthalmology, Pulmonology and Psychiatry plus an excellent Mental Health Services group in Navy Hill. To make a profit, he mentioned that there is an outdated CAT Scan machine sitting at Lower Base in a warehouse which was a gift from Sharp Hospital in San Diego that never got used. "Why not take the profit and buy a new CAT Scan-one that at least meets current day standards? Why not use the profit to buy needed hospital supplies?" With regards to the effect of Public Law 7-45, Ahraham said staffing at CHC is in a critical To avoid a staffing crisis, Abraham said they-are privatizing hospital services by working with recruitment agencies since the law affects only non-resident government employees. On recent resignations of some doctors, Abraham said they are doing all they can to encourage physicians to stay with them. But they still must replace those who wish to resign to go somewhere else so that services will not be disrupted. Governor tells HANM to lobby RP on Filipina ban By Rafael H. Arroyo Variety News Staff GOVERNOR Froilan C. Tenorio yesterday said he intends to pursue his plan to cut off worker renewals for Filipina non-professionals unless the Philippine government rescinds its ban on the same category. n an interview with the Variety, Tenorio said it should be up to affected employers to urge the Philippine government into rescinding the expanded worker ban so they could preempt his plan to put off Filipina renewals. According to Tenorio, the imposition of the ban on female employees indicates that Philippine government is not satisfied with what the NM government is doing to protect female workers and prevent any more abuse. " don't blame them for the action they have taken. They have the right to do what they did because they want.to protect their workers," said Tenorio. "That's the reason why they don't want to send any female non-professional workers to the CNM. And it is for the same reason why am proposing my, Clifford Grauers plan. say, we may also have to send female workers we have over here to make sure there won't be anymore abuse or sexual harassment on female workers we have over here," said the governor. "So in effect, am just doing the same thing the Philippine government is doing. f they don 1 want to send anymore so we don't abuse them, then say; to further prevent abuses on the ones we have over here, we should send them home also," the chief executive added. Earlier this week, the Hotel Association of the Northern Mariana slands wrote Tenorio urging him to reconsider his plan to cut renewals off. HANM president Clifford Grauers said such a plan would entail huge costs for HANM's member hotels in terms of training for new employees, and in effect, disrupt operations and cripple the tourism and hotel industries. Asked how he will respond to HANM' s pleas, the governor said the association should make their concerns known to the Philippine government. " haven't read their letter but off-hand say to them why don't they do some lobbying with the Philippine government. Why don't they go and talk with officials there and tell them the hotels do not abuse their workers and ask why t/je need for the ban. So my suggestion is for them to do some lobbying," said Tenorio. f the Philippine government agrees to lift the ban, Tenorio said h~' 11 respond by allowing female workers to renew their contracts here freely.

3 Wait for the right mom~nt The debate that is expected to be spawned by the recentresubmission of Judge Alex Castro's appointment to the highest seat on the Supreme Court bench is expected to be a real loud one. A good number of the so-called po!itical observing breed are betting their bottom dollar that there will be those in the Senate who will be swayed into rooting for the same appointee they rejected more than a month ago. True, because all the hysteria and critiques raised by the Castro rejection may have already died down. Harsh words have been spoken and the political backlash may have already subsided. For the clever politician, and we know the Senate is full of them, it may now be time to mend broken fences. t may be time for them to correct the wrong and take credit for it. Saving face would be damn easy as it could only take a few flowery words to pacify the harsh opinion columns that have recently lambasted their actions. Then there could be that reasoning that they were just carried away by the sentiment of the moment. That they were swayed by the prevailing mood of their majority colleagues into putting on the bandwagon mentality. Yes, the possibility of a more positive vote is there but will it be enough to correct what may have turned out to be a big mistake committed in haste? We're afraid not. With the swift decision not to accept Judge Castro's appointment, the senators have completely ruined the man's reputation. A reputation that has been built over the years through conscientious and careful application of his mastery of the CNM legal system. One that has been nurtured by years and years of g9ardedintegrity, righteousness and civility.. Not only did they ruin the individual's career as a reputable judge, they also blemished his credibility as a human being. Why? Because he was too political. He played politics too much for his onw advantage. But come to think of it, who in this world does not play politics. Everyone does and moreso people in this community who eat, breathe and drink pojitics. Especially here where everyone is a relative of everyone. The way we see it, the recent rejection of the Castro appointment and the statements made by a leading EAG senator subsequent to his reappointment, are enough reasons for Judge Castro to think ~~.. What has already transpired at the Senate is a deeply humiliating slap on the face for one who is being looked up at with the highest esteem and r.espect. We feel sorry for the judge but what can we do, there is still that possibility of seeing another slap on the other side of the cheek. A slap that could be more painful and insulting the the previous one. Although we believe that Judge Castro is the most capable and most fitting appointee for the top post, there are those among us who are skeptical of the individual senator's sense of decency and fairness. They did it once and there is no convincing reason why we should think they would not do it again, except perhaps they want to put on a stance that will highlight their sense of righteousness. We sincerely hope Judge Castro will weigh things before plunging into this virtual den of lions once again. Who knows, by declining the appointment and just staying on as 1-Superior Court chief judge, he may rise one day to new heights. t all depends, after all, on the sentiment of the moment.

Does he realize the respect that these governing bodies should have for the people they represent. This should be the people's decision. The School Board made tlie same mistake by not asking for the public's input on changing the school year, something that would change the way of life. Casinos will forever change Saipan. Has there been any other consideration given to an alternative future far Saipan? For example, agriculture has a proven record and was once a thriving industry in this region. With today's technology. it would seem even more feasible. We are now importing food that we could be exporting and at one time it was exported. The Casinos and outside investments are ways for economic improvement but what will be the final cost to the people. Do they want to sacrifice their way oflife as we know it today. Sure, there will be a few millionaires from land sales but what about the masses. Also the majority of the money from Casinos and other outside investment will not be circulating through the community but instead going to the owners bank account. Who will run these operations. Back to square one with alien workers. Casinos and outside investors means that Saipan will be depending on other countries economic for its success. 'The firstlawofnatureis SELFPRESERVA TON" What can the local people do with the aide of the government to make life better? Has any thought been placed in this area? The governor said we wantto be non-dependant on the U.S. but yet he wants other countries to invest. We are still asking for help in the end. There are also other islands in the Marianas that can be developed. Casinos will put a tremendous strain on. the local culture. Can you imagine what the streets.will look like. How crowded this little island will be.

Workers have the right to organize in order to support one another. Society in general must respect.the union's call to boycott and strike in cases where justice is not honored." As a predominantly Catholic culture we must honor the words of our Holy Father. Unfortunately many employers do view their work- ers as disposable commodities to be used, exploited and replaced. Labor unions are necessary to combat the negative attitudes mariy employers have toward their workers. The belief that employees are mere tools only to be exploited for profit is very prevalent in this part of the world. This arrogant attitude towards workers is highly inconsistent with American democracy and consequently represents the root of many of ou.r labor problems The most well known union is the Commonwealth Continued on page 5 Chamorro/Pala1c1an slams Pierce on betel nut Dear Editor: ONE of the most frustrating experience have on this island is people who are so insensitive to one's culture. Take for example the drug czar sitting up at his air conditioned office at the Governor's Office and doing nothing but put out of boring press releases and planning for his next off-island trip. Having nothing else to do, he decided to take on betel nut chewers, as if a lot of people are falling dead on the street for chewing betel nuts. Mr. Drug Czar should have stayed with the Garment ndustry rather than try to save the Chamorros, Carolinians, Yapese, Palauans, and happily, some Americans, from death by chewing what we had been chewing as part of our culture for many years, long before he came to this islands to get confused.. His office in itself is highly questionable. s his office really necessary, since we have a highlyqualified Chamorro at the Commonwealth Health Center speaking to students, government employees, and actually doing treatment for those addicted to drugs? What has he done since he came into office, other than appear on TV once and bored us to death with his press releases about his trips? Oh, take on betel nut chewers. Then someone who calls himself or herself "A.M. Smard" wrote a Jetter to disagree with Robert Hunter's own letter about betel nuts. Apparently, he is not a very "smart" person as he or sire claims to be when he or she stop chewing. To suggest that habitual chewers could eventually sell their bodies to buy betel nuts, Mr. or Ms. Smard, you seem tci be suggesting that you have a very cheap body. Do you really believe in what you said? Mr. Dick should work on the Legislature to repass the ant-smoking legislation the Governor vetoed to save non-smokers from the second hand effect of smoking which has been proven to caus~ cancer and other kinds of diseases. He should advocate the closure of liquor stores and other businesses that sell cigarettes and alcohol. What about other Hlegal drugs such as "ice" and "cocaine" and "marijuana", or PCP? Why don't you do something about these, instead of being insensitive to our culture, Do Continued on page 5 i JACK ANDERSON and MCHAEL BNSTEN WASHNGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Lott fights for a needless NASA move WASHNGTON-When Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Mark Hatfield of Oregon voted his conscience by opposing the balanced budget amendment, Majority Whip Trent Lott piously attacked his "arrogance.".. But when we called Lott's office to ask about a $1 billion federal project he's been trying to steer to his home state of Mississippi, his spokeswoman petulantly responded: "What do you want him to be-a purist?" Arrogance aptly describes Lott's heavy-han~ed can:il?aign to move NASA's space shuttle nozzle pro~uc.li<:~n f~c1htyand its hundreds of jobs-from Utah to M1ss1ss1pp1. NA~A officials recently nixed the move because a confidential agency assessment revealed that the relocation would ha~e. wasted more than $850 million at a time when NASA 1s practically running on fumes. Lott's ability to summon moral outrage, however, has never run dry. At the same time that he's been trying to bring home the bacon he has endorsed Draconian across-the-board budget cuts a'.nd lauded his GOP colleagues for their ab~lity to "step up" with a courageous budget. Lott has demgrated Democrats for not making the "tough choices" for "our children's future.". To be sure the entire Mississippi congressional delegat10n has been pu;hing for the NASA relocation- including another Republican,leader, Sen. Thad Cochran. But ~one of those members have rendered judgment on dissentmg colleagues in the way Lott ridiculed Hatfield...,, According to a knowledgeable source, the mtens1ty of Lott's lobbying for the move has been much greater than that of his colleag_ue~,jn rec~~t_ m _th_s L2tt held s~~_eralfa~~::_t9-_ face meetings with NASA Administrator Damel S. Goldm about the relocation, and one congressional source told us Lott has been "putting tremendous pressure on Goldin.". But Goldin stood his ground. Emboldened by a "Rapid Action" draft audit report by NASA's inspector general that concluded the relocation costs "were not justified by the expected benefits," Goldin ~as refused to bow t? the pressure. The report, which was reviewed by our assoc1at~ E?.Henry, noted that the move raised "various safety, reliab1hty and schedule concerns" that could have increased the relocation costs "substantially" beyond $850 million through the year WW... Lott's spokeswoman, Susan rl:>x,. told l!s that l,_o_tl"d~~ agrees with their cost analysis" and believes,'.'ther:'s an investment here that will be greater than the cost. romcally, that "investment" criteria did not affect Lott during recent Budget Committee deliberations that produced p~opo~~ls for deep cutbacks in programs affecting children, semor c1t1zens, the poor and veterans.. "Democrats always want to increase spending on everything and raise t8;(es to pay for it,:: Lott. s~id. when Senate Republicans unveiled their?udget: N?w 1t 1s time ~o face up to the tough choices. We did the Job m the committee, and we're going to doitin the full Senate foro~rchildr~n's futur~." Lott has previously supported completmg a third $2.4 billion Seawolf submarine.

4 6-MARANAS VARETY NEWS AND VEWS-FRDAY-JUNE 16, 1995 nos hails court's decision ROTA Mayor Joseph S. nos expressed jubilation over the SuperiorCourt' s recent decision on his lawsuit versus Governor Froilan C. Tenorio. Judge Edward Manibusan, on Wednesday, handed down a decision in the constitutional landmark case defining the powers of mayors. "This decision upholds the power of mayors to administer public services and puts a firm check on the Governor's power in Rota, as well as confirms the mayor's authority to appoint and fire resident department heads" said Rota mayor Joseph S.!nos said in a press statement yesterday. Judge Manibusan said Governor Tenorio could not create an "unauthorized, ad hoc agency such as the Governor's Representative on Rota. Accordingly, as a matter of law, the Governor's Representative is operating in violation of [the constitution]." "More than anything else in this case," said mayor!nos, "th:: recognition that the Governor's Representative Office circumvents the constitution, will bring peace to our community." The Governor's Representative Office in Rota has been a bone of contention between the Rota mayor and the Governor since October "Clearly that office will now cease to exist as it has in the past," said the mayor in yesterday's news release. "We will see more harmony in a community that has been sometimes sharply divided by this dispute." The Court's decision also established the right of the mayor to control administrative leave for government employees. "Accordingly, the Governor's attempt to revoke the mayor's duty to grant administrative leave fails due to a procedural flaw," wrote judge Manibusan. "Such revocation," reads the opinion, would have.to be "supported by just cause." The court concludes jusl cause has not been shown. We have heard over the radio that the Governor in a press conference yesterday has claimed "total" victory in this case. Those of our citizens who will take the time to read the decision will soon discover that the Governor's claim is grossly inflated. Why the Governor has opted to deceive perhaps only he can explain. The true nature of this difficult case is better understood and presented by the above headline. There were some eleven issues in contention with some going to the Mayor, some to the Governor and some ending in a draw or perhaps with a slight edge to one or the other. The case can be likened to a prize fight with the issues representing rounds. This manner of assessing the case gives a decision victory to the Mayor...it is not total, but enough, to Rota, very important issues were settled in favor of the mayor. Additionally, the mayor is pleased to announce that a number of Tinian and Saipan leaders have conveyed congratulatory messages to him, and interestingly enough, some such support has also come in from officials in Guam. "We are very grateful for this decision," said _mayor nos. "t sets some workable rules to define local and central government power in Rota. We look forward to working with the Governor in an amicable way to carry out this decision.

Manibusan however, explained that the practices of past governors, undertaken without the benefit of judicial interpretation of the provision at issue, cannot nullify the plain language of the constitutional text. "This Decision marks the Commonwealth Judiciary's first opportunity to provide Commonwealth leaders with guidance on the meaning of Amendment 25," said the judge. Although the court's interpretation of Amendment 25 may be long overdue, the parties shall be bound by this Decision to the extent that it deviates from past gubernatorial practices, Manibusan emphasized. :. {",..j >!

Bikini MayorTomakiJudasaid in an interview yesterday (Thursday, June 15) that islanders had rejected consideration of nuclear waste storage for Bikini, and were now focused on cleaning their home islands for an early return. n March, the Bikini council's announcement that it planned to "educate" itself about nuclear waste storage possibilities set off a furor of debate and protest within this community of 2,000 islanders. Last month, the Bikinians reversed their position, rescinding their support for consideration of nuclear waste, saying the community wanted to return home. The Bikinians are holding their annual budget session this week, and indications are that 1996 will see the 'Bikinians increase funding and focus greater effort on the OFF June :00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. Huny!

The effort will focus on cleaning residual radioactivity from Bikini sland, but the Bikinians do not want to limit the cleanup to Bikini sland only, Juda said. The entire atoll needs cleanup. "The decision of the Bikini Council is that we won 'tlet people return to Eneu sland (which has been declared safe by scientists) while the other islands are not safe," Juda said. "How can we return if things (radioactivity) that belong to the United States government are still there?" Juda said the Bikinians are more anxious than ever to return home. "People are asking to return yesterday but it would be a bad decision to move back to stay on islands next to other islands that are not cleaned. Who will stop people from getting food on the radioactive islands? The problem, however, is that "the United States gave us funding to. cleanup only Eneu and Bikini," Juda said.

Unlike Bikini, it has no reef-protected lagoon for fishing, and over the years the B ikinians have become entirely dependept on U.S. Department of Agriculture food provided by the U.S. government. Juda recalled the American government promises of the 1940s. "They said 'as soon as we're done with the tests, we'll return you safely.' t hasn't happened." The Bikinians want to go back, he emphasized. "Many people have died without realizing their dream but returning home was in their hear." This is why the Bikinians in May rescinded their earlier resolution to pursue the option of nuclear waste storage. "t's a request from our people," Juda said. "They are anxious to return home." Marshalls irked by French plans to resume tests By Giff Johnson. For the Variety MAJURO - The Marshall slands is disturbed by France's announcement that it intends to re,sume nuclear testing in French Polynesia. "The French should stick to the moratorium," Marshall slands Foreign Secretary Jiba Kabua said yesterday (Wednesday, June 14). The Marshall slands government is against resumption of nuclear testing by any nation and strongly supports a total test ban treaty, he said. "We made our position clear at the United Nations," Kabua said. "We condemn the testing o: nuclear weapons." The M3rshall slands was the site of 66 U.s. nuclear tests from 1946 to n 1986, the U.S. provided a $150 million trust fund to compensate Marshall slanders for loss of land and health injuries suffered as a result of the nuclear testing. Kabua called the French move "irresponsible and immoral," saying that a resumption of nuclear testing ran counter to the mood of Pacific islan4 nations. French President Chirac said that France will resume.testing in September with eight nuclear explosions.

By Giff Johnson For the Variety MAJURO - Robert Reimers Enterprises, the largest business in the Marshall slands, began laying off workers and trimming salaries in Majuro last week in a cost-cutting effort which managers said was required because of the closing of its large, multi-million dollar Ebeye retail and wholesale operation earlier this year. _ Ramsey Reimers, RRE's chief. executive officer, said that the company needed to streamline its business so that it can invest into income-generating opportunities to bring money into the Marshall slands instead ofbeing totally dependent on"rotating goverrunent payroll checks." "We have to cut our overhead costs," chief operations officer Peter Gigante said. "Ebeye contributed to paying for our overhead, so we have to adjust downwards." RRE, a locally-owned company that operates a hotel, dive operation, hardware, car dealership, and office rentals in addition to its wholesale and retail businesses, was forced off ofebeye sland earlier this year by a group of landowners unhappy with the tenns of a lease RRE held. Ebeye is the Marshalls second largest urban center next to the American missile testing range at K wajalein..rre shut its doors at Ebeye last week, permanently laying off 130 employees. Gigante added that RRE had been having a "banner year" until the Ebeye problem arose, and the loss of business on Ebeye necessitated cutbacks in Majuro, its base of operations. About 25 workers will be laid off - about seven percent of the total workforce,andtherewillbeanoverall five percent decrease in salaries, although for a few workers wages may actually rise, Gigante said. RRE is also getting out of the heavy equipment business. ts equipment is being sold to local construction company United Atoll and many of theequipmentoperatorshave been picked up by United Atoll, Gigante said. Francis Reimers, wholesale manager, said RRE' s retrenching is a direct result of closing out its Ebeye stores. RRE is bringing several of its managers and top level personnel from Ebeye and locating them in Majuro, whiledepartmentsherethat are overstaffed will be cut back, Gigante said. "We started the adjustments last week and the rest will be made next week," Gigante said. ''This isn't a major panic. t's a one time, fix-it adjustment." Francis Reimers said that some of the Ebeye staff will be slotted into the accounting department which needs additional staff to handle the sophisticated computer accounting system in place. Rl!ffisey Reimers said that the de- RRE is aiming to invest more heavily inexportareas, such as clams and pearl oysters, and in tourism and diving projects, according to Gigante. RRE will also be investing outside of the Marshalls, he said. The Marshalls has begun major clam exports to the American aquarium market. "We're exporting about 100,00 clams to the U.S. now," Gigante said. The company has also begun investing heavily into pearl oyster farming, and will "We plan to diversify our holdings so we're less dependent on the domestic economy," he said. Reimers concurred: "We're all feeling it now (tightening of the economy)." The Marshall slands goverrunent receives most of-its aid from Washington and is faced with a growing budget crisis as the Republican control of the U.S. Congress is threatening serious budget cutbacks that will affect the Marshalls.

Phone Joe ( t.,~:-c_: i.-.:.:.j '' love what you do for me:' Pairere #1 Microl Corporation bx 2H-6'514 Tom -t "'., Pairere #1 Allen Quality Servlc~ THE BEAUTFUL island of Saipan is soon to be stormed with lots of "heavenly music"! The Levites will be performing a two-day concert entitled Levites on Fire, a special post-pentecostal concert for the benefit of the mmaculate Concepcion Seminary on June 22 and 24, 1995 at 8 p.m. at the Hibiscus Hall, Dai-chi Hotel. The concert is under the auspices of The Diocese of Chalan Kanoa in cooperation with the Diocese of Malolos and Continental Micronesia, Marianas Cable Vision and Power 99. Tickets are available at D'Elegance. The Levites (pronounced as leevites as in vitality), is an all-priest band from Malolos, Bulacan, Philippines. t was christened after one of the 12 tribes oflsraelcalled the Levites whose specialty was the priesthood. Levi, the Godfearing sraelite, was. the son of Jacob. The Levites, composed of7 fullpledged Filipino priests from the Diocese of Malolos, is probably the most unique music band in the whole world in terms of members' profession. Because of their love for music, they banded together to develop their God-given. musical talents with the hope of uniting the people of God through music in the right direction. The first public exposure of the newly formed band was in January, 1993 as an added attraction to the minor seminarians' presentation of "Joseph and his Technicolor Dreamcoat" at St. Mary's College in Meycauayan, Bulacan, Philippines. After that first rousing success, the rest was history. The group is always tapped to perform monthly ~oncerts for fundraising activities. The group does not only cater to playing and singing spiritual praise songs but also a repertoire of mellow rock and off-beat music. The notion of being far from conservative is in order to reach out to the many youth in the listening audience. t is no wonder that when you hear The Levites' music and beautiful blending of voices, you stomp your feet, you wave your hands, you sway your hips in exultation. The singing group is composed of Fr. Danny Bermuda, led vocalist, whose style and powerful singing voice makes Gary Valenciano, the Michael Jackson of the Philippines, a run for his "money"; Fr. Nick Castro, second vocalist; Fr. Dennis Santos, lead guitarist; Fr. Mar DJ Arenas, Keyboard Player & Manager; Fr. Mulong Perez, bass guitarist; Fr. Dindo Hilario, Drummer; and Fr. Rey Magna ye, formerly of the famous Tux Band, Second Keyboard Player and Musical Director. Wait till you hear Fr.

River ferry accident toll rises to 25 BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) Divers continued to plunge into murky river water Thursday around a sunken dock where at least 25 people died when a dock collapsed, hospital and other sources said. A spokeswoman for Siriraj Hospital, near the accident scene, said the death toll from Wednesday's disaster rose to 25 while 10 were still hospitalized, three of them with serious i,njuries. Television Channel 7 said three missing people were being sought by relatives, and authorities said divers might recover more bodies. About 00 people from a-morning commuter train had crowded on to the floating dock just before it collapsed as Bangkok commuters waited for rides on the Chao Phraya River, survivors said. The dead included six children - three boys and three girls - who were on their way to school. A Siriraj doctor, Singhapan Tongsawat, said the dead had either drowned or been electrocuted by wiring used to light the landing at night. The hospital spokeswoman, Chatchada Suk-o, said the latest toll of both dead and injured stood at 73. A number of injured were released shortly after treatment. The deputy minister of communications told reporters the floating wooden pier, constructed just two yearsago, was substandard in design, Anek Tubsawan said the pier, floating on metal drums, lacked reinforcing supports. t began to sink when an arriving ferry discharged passengers, said one survivor, Pratuengthip Sinitachakul, a 30-year-old civil servant. She said a sign posted at the landing gave its maximum capacity as 60 people. Tens of thousands of people commute across and along the Chao Phraya River each day. The river separates Bangkok from its sister city of Thonburi. Defense debate in House takes anti-russian tone By JOHN DAMOND WASHNGTON (AP) The House of Representatives is signaling an increasingly chilly outlook toward Russia. The clear message emerging from a series of votes in the Republican-led House. thisweekis:russiacan'tbetrusted to accept weapons dismantlement aid; Russia may be selling missiles and other lethal technology to rogue nations; and the United States still needs protection against missile attack. First up in Thursday's debate on the fiscal 1996 defense budget was a proposal to increase funding for tritium research and development; tritium is a key ingredient in nuclear weapons. On Wednesday, the House rejected a proposal to ensure that the Pentagon complies with the 1972 Antiballistic Missile Treaty and instead supported increased funding for a 11ational missile defense program. A day earlier, lawmakers voted to freeze aid to RU$sia to dismantle weapons until Moscow halts its biological weapons development program. Rep. Lee Hamilton of ndiana, ranking Democrat on the House nternational Relations Committee, warned the move could "poison our relations with the Russians" and lead to a renewed arms race. Rep. John Spratt, a South Carolina Democrat, said the House action would lead the Russian parliament to vote.down the ST ART treaty, which calls for dramatic nuclear weapons reductions. "f we rattle the cage, if we send that signal to the Russians, then we will put at even greater risk than it is now the ratification of START," Spratt argued. The arguments fell flat on the Republican side of the aisle. Rep. Curt Weldon of Pennsylvania held up ads distributed by the Russian military at a recent anns bazaar extolling Russianbuilt missiles. Some 25 countries threaten or could soon threaten the United States with missile attack thanks to such sales, he said. "This is the SS-25," Weldon said, referring to the Jong-range Russian missile. "Any country that gets the SS-25 can hit any city in Americ:. with a chemical or biological or nuclear weapon." The House voted, , Wednesday against a Spratt amendment to the defense bill that would ensure that missile defense efforts abide by the 1972 Antiballistic Missile Treaty. Then the House rejected, , a Democratic bid to cut a proposed increase in missile defense. Fulfilling a plank of House Republicans' "Contract With America," the bill adds$ 763 million to the Clinton administration's dlrs 3 billion request for missile defense. Republicansatvarioustimessaid they weren't trying to block all aid to Russia for dismantling weapons nor seeking to scrap the ABM treaty. But their basic distrust of Moscow came through loud and clear. Some haven't stoppe9 using the tenn "Soviet Union." ''The last thing the United States wants to be involved doing is inadvertently giving money to the Soviet Union, not to get rid of the old stuff, but to build new stuff, new weapons aimed at the United States," said Rep. Duncan Hunter, chairman of the House National Security procurement subcommittee. Rep. Bob Dornan, another senior memberof the National Security Committee, said a recently declassified intelligence report indicates Russia's weapons development includes research into using the deadly Ebola virus as a biological weapon. He cited a General Accounting Office report _ which was hotly disputed by the Pentagon for its accuracy-indicatingthatsome U.S. aid is indirectly aiding Russia's biological weapons program.

' ' 't' ~ \ ' ' ' ' '' '.J' ' MTC $1.25 $1.40 $0.65 $2.05 $1.90 $2.05 $1.65 $1.75 said. The FB is still trying to determine if a second man helped rent a truck believed to have carried the bomb. Federal officials, speaking only on condition of anonymity, said on Wednesday that the man who resembles the three sketches is Army Pfc. Todd Bunting of Fort Riley, Kansas. A tersej ustice Department statement, whichdidnotgivethatname, said the man interviewed by the FB "resembles the sketch previously circulated as the second of two men who rented the truck on April 17.",,,, This man "was in Elliott's Body Shop in Junction City, Kansas on a day other than the day (April 17, 1995) that the truck that contained the explosive that dru.naged the Murrah building was rented," the department said. "The bureau has determined that the individual who has been interviewed was not connected with the bombing," it added. TheJust~ce Department said the FB 1 "is continuing to investigate whether there was a second man who participated in the rental of the Ryder truck on April 17." Officials said the statement left open the possibility that the chief defendant in the case, Timothy McVeigh, was accompanied by another man, of whatever description, on the day he rented the truck. Mc Veigh, 27, and Terry Nichols, 40, are charged in the April 19 bombing that killed 168 people. They are being held without bail under a federal anti-terrorism law that could bring them the death penalty. The Florence, Sputh Carolina Morning News, whichfirstreported that Bunting, 23, was believed to be the man depicted in the sketches, said he is heavy set with dark hair and a tattoo on his upper left arm. Citing Bunting's wife, Denise, and two federal sources, the Florence paper reported that Bunting returned a truck to the Ryder _rental office the day before McVeigh's appearance there and was mistakenly associated with McVeigh when descriptions of another P,OSsible suspect were given to the FB. By JOHN KNG WASHNG TON (AP)-Overruling most of his political advisers, President Clinton offered a balanced budget plan he is convinced puts him on safer ground for reelection. But he has caused a remarkable uproar within his own Democratic Party, to the delight of Republicans.. n Clinton's view, he couldn't wait. Many aides urged him to hdld his cards until Republicans cast some tough votes, but the president insisted he would have no credibility by then - that Republicans already had seized the political high ground on deficit reduction. ndeed they have. The public believes Republicans are more concerned than Clinton about balancing the books. But this has come at some cost, and Democrats argued in vain before Clinton's televised address Tuesday that he was about to spare the Republicans from paying in full. consider a new national poll by the Times Mirror Center: For the first time since the Republican takeover in January, the percentage of AinericanshappythatRepublicans control Congress slipped below 50 percent. By a narrow margin, more Americans disapproved of Republican policies than approved. The primary reason? Worries that Republicans were slashing too deeply into Medicare. "People range from very, very anxious to scared to death about cuts in Medicare," said Andrew Kohut, the survey director. Yet in his plan, Clinton also cuts Medicare. He proposed$ 127 billion in savings over the seven years in which House Republicans propose $ 288 billion in savings and took pains to cast the Jlepublican cuts as too severe. Still, he put the issue on the table before Republicans had to say exactly how they would find those savings, infuriating Democratic congressional leaders who believe Medicare was shaping up as a powerful 1996 issue. "They' re free to express their opinion," Clinton said W ednesday. "But still feel very good about it." So did Republicans, who delighted in arguing the Democrats' Medicare argument now won't wash. "The president took from the hands of Democrats the knife with which they hoped to slit our throats," said Tony Blankley, spokesman for House Speaker Newt Gingrich. For Clinton, the overriding goal was to get off the sidelines in the bajanced budget debate in a way that appealed to independentminded swing voters who harbor a strong anti-deficit streak. Womenmakeupthemajorityof this group, according to pollster Kohut. Many feel financially insecure, have parents on Medicare and worry about their childrens' schools. So it was hardly a surprise that Clinton tried to strike a delicate balance, offering to erase the deficit over 10 years while not letting Republicans "cut education or Medicare just to make room for a tax cut for people who don't need it." What was a surprise was the president's timing. n urging Clinton to craft a plan but hold it until the Republicans took some political fire, many White House advisers also made the case that Clinton could use that time to sell skepticaj congressionaj Democrats on his approach. According to officials familiar with the discussions, pollsters Stanley Greenberg and Geoffrey Garin offered data to back up assertions from other advisers that there was no public clamoring for Clinton to rush out with his proposal. " don't think there is any question that if this were decided on the basis of current political calculus that the president would have waited longer," said Democratic pollster Geoffrey Garin. "Politically think this is more defensible on a long term calculus." Clinton said he was "sympathetic" to the strategic goals of congressional Democrats. But he said, " do not believe that's the appropriate position for the president."

French President Jacques. Chirac, a conservative elected in May, announced Tuesday that Paris would complete its experimental program before signing a test ban in the autumn of The French decision has been criticized by the United States, Russia, Japan, Canada, Norway, Luxembourg and Belgium. Australia and New Zealand, which neighbor the Pacific region where the tests are to be conducted, announced they were freezing military relations with France. President Clinton, after meeting with Chime on Wednesday in Washington, said "We regret the decision," and that the United States would continue to press France diplomatically "to stop the tests.'' Clinton, Chirac, and the leaders of Japan, taly, Germany, Britain and Canada were to meet Thursday for their annual Group of Seven economic summit. Russian.President Boris Yeltsin was to join them for political talks Friday. Canadian Foreign Minister Andre Ouellet told The Associated Press in an interview W ednesday that "it is the military apparatus in France that has convinced the new government to go ahead with this." "Those military people have a different perspective. f they do it, then military people in the United States will say, 'You see, if the French are doing it, why not us?' Then if the Americans do it, the Russians will say 'We have to resume testing too,"' Ouellet said. The latest French move will certainly be a topic of conversation among the leaders when they turn from economic to political matters on Friday.

New Zealand Foreign Minister Don McKinnon bitterly accused French President Jacques Chirac of "Napoleonic-De Gaulle arrogance." An angry Prime Minister Jim Bolger accused France of insulting his country, which sent troops to fight two world wars on French soil. Ouellet said Canada backs the United States in its decision to impose trade restrictions against ran because of its support for terrorism and to try to prevent the slwnic republic from acquiring nuclear arms. "The United States is concerned about what's happening in ran and the possibility that ran will get from Russia the capacity for nuclear armament," he said. '"Th.is is unacceptable.

"No matter what are the means tobetaken,canassureyoucanada shares the view expressed by the United States that ran should not be encourage to become a nuclear power," he added. Asahara confesses but not over subway attack By ERC TALMADGE TOKYO (AP)-After a month of relentless police interrogation, doomsday cult guru Shoko Asahara has reportedly cracked - confessing not to the Tokyo subway attack, but to standing by as a cult disciple was strangled. The confession, reported by several Japanese media Thursday, would mark a major break for investigators, who had previously gotten little more than small talk and silent meditation out of Asahara when they asked him about cult violence. Po'iice believe Asahara, who is facing charges of murder for the subway attack, ordered the strangling of cult disciple Kotara Ochida in February last year at the cult's Mount Fuji commune. Although Asahara has been in custody since May 16 in connection with the subway attack, police on Wednesday formally rearrested him on suspicion of ordering Ochida's murder. n Japan, police do not charge suspects, but an arrest paves the way for charges later by prosecutors and gives police the power to detain and interrogate a suspect. According to the reports Thursday, all quoting anonymous police sources, Asahara has confessed to witnessing the murder but denies that he ordered it be carried out. There was no indication that he claimed to have tried to stop it, however, and cult followers have described unquestioning obedience to his every directive. Japan's state-run television network, NHK, said that at least five other top Aum leaders also watched as Ochida, a phannacist at a cult-run hospital, was strangled to death. Ochida' s murder was believed to be punishment for violating cult rules, but details remain sketchy. Thursday's reports could also be a harbinger of more chilling revelations about the fate of those who defied the cult. Dozens of followers - Aum claims some 10,000 followers in Japan - are.missing, and authorities fear thr;y may have met a similar fate. The reports also came as Japan's top police official resumed his duties for the first time since he was gunned down and nearly killed in a brazen assassination attempt months ago. The shooting of National Police Agency chief Takaji Kunimatsu came just 10 days af- ter the nerve gas attack on Tokyo s subways. Poli.ce suspect Aum may have been behind it, although no arrests have been made. The shooting was almost as shocking to many Japanese as the subway attack because it was such a bold assault on the government. "t was. a despicable crime," Kunimatsu told repq,r;t~rs Thursday. He appeared in good spirits but now needs a cane to walk. The police chief was hit by three hollow-point bullets, which cause more damage than regular bullets, in the lower back as he prepared to get n a limousine outside his Tokyo residence early March 30. Police believe the attack was a carefully planned, professionalsly le hit. Kunimatsu was struck by three out of four pistol shots from a distance of dozens of meters (yards), two of them as he crumpled to the ground, indicating the attacker was a well-trained marksman. The attack was all the more unnerving to many Japanese because guns are strictly regulated in Japan, and high-profile violenceis relatively rare. Kunimatsu had no personal bodyguards at the time of the attack, though two officers were in the area. The attacker was believed to have escaped on a bicycle. Along with Asahara, roughly a dozen cult leaders have been charged withmurderorattempted murder in the subway gassing, which left 12 people dead and sickened thousands more. But the cult has also emerged as the prime suspect in a slew of other crimes dating back at least five years and involving as many as a dozen more uns9lved deaths. n the most serious of those crimes, arrest warrants were expected to be issued soon for six cult members suspected in' a nerve gas attack last year in the centra) Japan city of Matsumoto that killed seven people.

China denounces report on famous dissident as lie s By CHARLENE L FU BEUNG (AP) The Fo~ign Ministry on Thursday denounced as lies a human rights report on China's treatment of its most famous dissident, WeiJingsheng, whodisappearedinto police custody more than a year ago. The New York-based Human RightsinChinasaidChineseauthori ties have admitted to Wei's family that his detention was not fully in accordance with the law, and that China's top leaders were giving the orders on how to handle Wei's case. Wei, who has been nominated for thenobelpeacepriz.e, was taken into police custody on April, 1994, and has notbeenseenorheardfromsince. The reportalsosaidauthoritieshave suggested that Wei could be allowed to go overseas. The government has used that measure with increasing frequency in recent years to rid the country of dissidents. ForeignMinistryspokesmanShen Guofang dismissed the group's report, saying, "That organization in New York, Human Rights in China, is one that often fabricates rumors. " don't think need to comment on its rumors," he said. "Without fabricating lies, it cannot survive." Wei, a former electrician, gained international attention in 1979 when hewassentencedto 15yearsinprison for his leading role in a short-lived democracy movement n 1993, he was released early as China tried to polish its international reputation whilebiddingtostagethe20000lyrnpic Games. But he quickly ran afoul of the law againashecontinuedtospeakopenly for democracy and human rights. Repeatedrequestspyforeigngovernments and human rights groups for information since his disappearance have yielded no results. The rights group's report, based on information from his family, is the most comprehensive account yet of.what has happened to Wei. n April, Wei's yotmgersisterwent to security and judiciary offices in Beijing seeking information about her brother, the rights group reported. The Beijing police bw-eau acknowledged that Wei was.-in its custody under a form ofhouse arrest. His sister pointed out that by law, the detainee is supposed to remain in his home and that such house arrest is not to exceed three months. The officials then admitted that Wei's detention "was not in accordance with the law," the report said. AnofficialoftheSupremePeople' s Procuratorate, the government's top prosecuting body, said the orders on - handling Wei's case came from the rughesi levels of the leadership. Wei's essays during the Democracy Wall movement had questioned the credibility of the Chinese leadership and mentioned senior leader Deng Xiaoping by name. Deng is known to have personally intervened in the handling of Wei's case in the past. The various offices assured the sister that Wei's health was fine, but denied requests to visit him or even to exchange short letters, the report said.

On Tuesday, Dudayev lost his latest headquarters in the mountain village of Shatoi to advancing Russian troops.

An embassy official; speaking on condition he not be named, said Russian diplomats here have asked the State Circus Co., in Moscow to send a representative to the Philippines to sort out the mess, hut so far none has come. n the meantime, he said, the performers' visas have expired, and the situation will have to be sorted out with the Philippine Bureau of mmigration. "The embassy is trying to do its best to send the others back,'' he said. Local officials, church groups and other benefactors in Davao City, 960 kilometers (610 miles) southeast of Manila, have come to the aid of the Russians and have provided lodging, rent-free show space and food for the performers and their animals. The city government has waived amusement taxes and is allowing the group to hold a three-<lay fair in the coming days.

Tan made the armouncementduring a visit at the regional he.alth department in Santo Tomas town near Clark in Pampanga province, about 80 kilometers (50 miles) north of Manila He said his office has requested the Atlanta-based U.S. Center for Disease Control for help in identifying the toxic wastes which may be found at 14 sites in Oark and 20 sites in Subic. Oark was closed by U.S. authorities because of extensive damage. during the 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo. Subic was the last U.S. facility to be closed in September 1992, after the Philippine senate refused to extend its lease. Tan said the inspection was prompted by reports that some local residents have fallen ill after drinking ground water near the facilities. Last year; two people died from poisoningwhilecleaningseptictanks inside Clark. When they were still U.S. bases, Oark and Subic were the biggest American military facility outside the United States.

The U.S. dollar edged lower against the Japanese yen. Observers said much of the stock buying was byclealers covering futures positions taken on expectations of a short-term decline. Paul Migliorato, a trader at Jardine Fleming Securities, said pension funds had done some of the buying. Chief spokesman Koza garashi announced that the government would disclose a strong stimulus package next week to try to ensure the economy keeps pulling out of four years of recession. And a senidr legislator from the largest party in the ruling coalition called for a review of taxes on securities transactions and land. Despite Thursday's gain, players remained extremely cautious about the market's outlook, expecting the 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average to fall below its August 1992 low of 14, '"Longer term, buyers will be more comfortable at 14,000 than they are now," Migliorato said. But for the cmning week, as players await concrete details of the government's economic stimulus plans and stock market support measures, share prices are unlikely to fall sharply, traders said. n Thursday' searly trading, the Nikkei average fell more than 260 points, or nearly 1.8 percent, to a level about 89 points above its August 1992 low. Rebounding later, it closed up.4 percent, or points, at 14, On Wednesday, the average had risen points, or 0.42 percent, in what analysts MD-PAC MCRONESA We're proud to announce that the neyv Mid-Pac Micronesia is open for regular business hours at Middle Rd., Garapan.

Most of the excitement was centered in the Richmond Avenue area that is lined with bars and restawants such as Peter's. t's not too far from the Rockets' arena, The Summit Fans everywhere wore a wide variety of hats and T-shirts, many waved handmade signs and brooms in honor of the sweep, and some even showed their loyalty by having their faces painted with drawings of players. On the congested streets, many cars had messages shoe-polished onto their windows such as "Shaq Lost His Magic" and ''How Sweep t s." Amid the din of cheers, those still tuned to the Rockets' flagship radio station heard a musical toast to the team: "Unforgettable," sung by Nat King Cole and his daughter, Natalie. Despite being the defending champs, ~ouston was an underdog because 1t was seeded sixth in the Western Conference entering the playoffs. No team had come from such a low position to win a title before. "t brings us all together," Mark Brett said. "t's the fact that the underdog can win." "t's NOT a fluke," said Willane Pearson. At The Summit, a sellout crowd of 16,611 was caught amid dry ice and falling red and yellow confetti at the game's end. They also got to cheer as NBA commissioner David Stern presented the team the championship trophy iust as he did following last year's series victory over the New York Knicks But the real celebration was in the streets and bars of the nation's fourth largest city, one that has been Rockets crazy for more than a month.

NM to win. Continued from page 40 As a tribute to his memory and achievement in the sport, the Kautz Glass Glazers Major League team offered a wreath of condolences to Babauta's family during the Mobil Games opening ceremonies. Al Taitano, managerofthe Glazers to which Babauta belonged as one of the top pitchers, delivered a eulogy for the deceased athlete. Taitano said that with Babauta's untimely death, many lost "a good and humble friend with a good sense of humor." Remembered as a "remarkably excellent athlete." Babauta started his baseball career when he was 9 years old. "He joined the Little, Junior, Senior, Big, and Major Lea~ues and (was) also chosen to represent various competitions in Guam, Palau, Far East, and the Philippines. He was known by all as an excellent pitcher, in-fielder and out-fielder" Taitano said. ' Babauta helped propel Ric Kautz' Glazers to win the Major League pennant title in the last season. His last pitch was with the DPW Mauleg team in the island-wide men's fast-pitch softball league last week. He was also a member of the Hit & Run team in the Saipan Softball Association night league at the But Mayer got Roger Saburo and Felix Kyota on fly giving Guam the victory. time of his death. During the tribute, Fr. Gary Bradley prayed for Babauta's soul.to be blessed, as well as for courage and hope for his teammates as Babauta "would have wanted them to play." Mobil Games statistician and scorekeeper Francisco "Tan Ko" M. Palavios said that a CNM team official had planned to field in Babauta in several innings each day of the four-day league. Palacios who has kept a record of'' Babauta' s life-long record in the Major League, supported pronouncements of other officials that Babauta belonged to the top five pitchers in the CNM until his death. ''That's true," Palacios said as he showed Babauta's record when he was chosen as the 1994 season Pitcher of the Year. Nightly rosary is being held at the Babauta residence in Lower As Matuis. Ken Babauta will be laid to his final restin_g place on Tuesday. The CNM team won its first game Wednesday against Kosrae 5-0., n last night's match against the Guam All Stars, Ramir De Leon of KMCV Headend Department said both teams were on equal footing with a 2-all score at the bottom of the third as Variety Sports went to press.
