Rice differs on affirmative action decision WASHINGTON AP National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice said Friday race could be a factor in selecting colleges students embracing a cornerstone of affirmative action that Pres ident Bush has avoided It is appropriate to use race as one factor among oth ers in achieving a diverse stu dent the presidents most prominent black advis er said in a written state ment The statement distanced Rice from some of the presi dents most conservative advisers and to an extent from Bushs own position In a narrowly tailored brief for a Supreme Court case the presidents lawyers argued Thursday that the University of Michigans admissions sys tem fails the constitutional test of equal protection for all and ignores raceneutral alternatives that could boost minority presence on cam puses The Supreme Court could use the Michigan case to review a 25yearold affirma tive action ruling that said quotas were unconstitutional but left room for race being a factor in admissions While Bush and his lawyers did not address whether race could ever be a consideration Rices statement endorsed that aspect of the landmark 1978 Bakke decision Rice said she agreed with the presidents position which emphasizes the need for diversity and recognizes the continued legacy of racial prejudice and the need to fight for The president challenged universities to develop ways to diversify their populations she wrote In a significant step beyond Bushs own statements she added I believe that while raceneutral means are preferable it is appropriate to use race as one factor among others in achieving a diverse student Rice former provost at Stanford University made a rare foray into domestic poli cy when she participated in intense internal debate over the Michigan program which offers points to minority applicants and sets goals for minority admissions White House officials said she firmly argued her point to Bush that race could be used as a factor in admissions though she agreed with his view that the Michigan pro gram went too far Officials said she did not object to Bush remaining silent on the issue in the brief They said Rice was stung by a Washington Post story that said she helped convince Bush that favoring minori ties was not an effective way of improving diversity on col lege campuses Rice discussed the article with Bush who urged her to go public with her differences officials said 1A River Road crossings The best progress he said was now being made in the Horseshoe Falls area At the first FM 306 cross ing we have a contractor who really knows what hes Wiederhold said Under the terms of the NRCS contract the contrac tor is only guaranteed river access at the bridges and the contractor is looking for river access over private property to further facilitate the work Wiederhold said Its a long way between those crossings its his respon sibility to findothers and hes working on Wiederhold said The job is contracted to be completed by the end of March County Judge Danny Scheel expressed concern I frankly expected it to be further along than it Scheel said You keep us post County Engineer Tom Hornseth acknowledged that there had been delay Wiederhold said that the contractor had asked if the riv er flow could be lowered from its current 250 cubic feetper second to 150 or 100 cfs to facilitate faster and safer work in the riverbed Army Corps of Engi neers Lake Manager Jerry Brite said it could if first the Corps ran extra water out of the lake to lower the con servation pool from its current feet above mean sea lev el Brite said his supervisors would be reluctant to autho rize a reduction in flow if it meant building up the flood pool A week of releasing to cfs would enable three to four weeks of flows at 100 cfs Brite said Commissioners Court authorized Precinct 1 Com missioner Jack Dawson to dis cuss the matter with the Corps and attempt to work out a draw down of the lake SaleaBratincr the New
