AP In a major breakthrough the United States and North Korea agreed early Sat urday on measures to ease nuclear tensions on the Korean peninsula and prepare diplomatic links In a joint statement the United States said it would help North Korea Switch to a safer nuclear technology which can less easily produce bombmaking plutoni um In return North Korea said it would continue to observe a freeze on nuclear activities and would remain part of the nuclear NonProliferation Treaty which is meant to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons However both delegation chief Robert L Gallucci and North Korean vice foreign minister Kang Sok Ju made it clear that many problems remained untackled They agreed to meet again in Geneva on Sept 23 to iron out fur ther difficulties In particular the agreement fell short of securing guarantees from Pyongyang to open up all its nuclear facilities to unlimited inspections This is Washingtons ulHmafe aim to clear up doubts mat Norm Korea might have secretly devel oped atomic weapon capabilities In Washington a Clinton administration official called the agreement very significant but said much remains to be settled Its a very positive step in reducing the tension on the Kore an said the official speaking on the condition of anonymity Its a serious and sober approach to the nuclear problem but theres still a lot to The two sides said that the fate of spent fuel rods currently corroding in a cooling pond north of Pyongyang remained undecid ed North Korea provoked a crisis earlier this year by removing the rods from its Yongbyon nuclear plant in defiance of the nuclear watchdog the International Atomic Energy Agency Western experts say reprocess ing would leave North Korea with enough plutonium for five nuclear bombs Kang told reporters that North Korea would take steps to stabi lize the rods to delay the risk of them giving off radiation and this would be monitored by inspectors the Ii previously argued it must begin reprocessing them by the end of the month before they start to give off harmful radiation State colleges making a deal Tuition increases could be lower INDIANAPOLIS AP The states public colleges are close to agreeing on unusually low tuition increases if the General Assembly will spend more money on post secondary education particularly for lowincome students a top higher education official said Fri day Hefty tuition Increases during the past decade have been squeez ing poorer students and their fam ilies said higher education Com missioner Clyde Ingle Universities say theyve had no choice after lawmakers them selves facing tight constraints in a weak economy kept their budgets at barebones levels in recent years Indiana is already behind the national average for enrollment and rising costs could cripple a concerted effort being made to catch up Ingle said Last year enrollment dipped slightly an ominous sign despite the fact no one can prove conclu sively that costs were to blame To check further erosion the schools and the Higher Education Commission are preparing to offer a Ingle said In the developing agreement if the state appropriates the money we anticipate requesting institu tions will hold fee increase to 4 percent the next two years about half the rate over the last 10 he said The 14member commission reviews budget requests and rec ommends a consolidated budget for Indiana Purdue Indiana State Ball State and Vincennes universi ties and for the University Of Southern Indiana and Indiana Vocational Technical College The issue of affordability was discussed at the commission meeting Friday Ingle said the commission and statesupported schools also are close to agreement on a second broad principle Everybody should support a substantial increase in appropriations for the state grant program to ensure those who need help will get it he said Theres no guarantee lawmakers will go along with all the universi ties request for more money House Ways and Means chairman B Patrick Bauer DSouth Bend warns that a modest state budget surplus gives die General Assem bly only a little leeway to spend more money in the twoyear pud get lawmakers will write

proposed housing development met with the group opposing the project for the first time this week and said theyd address the groups concerns at a future meeting Vicky Reed president of the Harvest Homes Inc board of directors said she was impressed by the Northside Community Awareness Teams professional decorum at the meeting I found that refreshing in lieu of the calls Ive been Reed said They didnt reflect the irrationality that Ive heard over the Harvest Homes will now take a list of reasons why northside resi dents fear the apartment complex for farm workers and try to answer them one by one The citi zens art afraid crime overcrowd ing more accidents and a devalu ation of their property values will result if the project goes ahead as planned Theyve also stated repeatedly that theyd rather see some sort of business go in at the threeacre vacant lot on Morgan Street about a block west of Reed said the most daunting task ahead for Harvest Homes is to dispel the myths people hold regarding farm workers that they are all lazy lawless migrants when in fact theyve lived and worked in the Kpkomo communi ty for that nearby Bon Air Elementary School would become overcrowded when in fact gener ous federal education funds will accompany the federally funded housing and that sur rounding property values will decline when they havent in other states with similar But no matter what answers the nonprofit group comes up with there appears to be no way the northside residents will change their minds I cant see how they think theyre going to go forward with that project said NCAT chair woman Helen Bowman when asked if there are any changes Harvest Homes could possibly offer to appease neighborhood detractors Let them rind some where else where theres a bigger area to put them
