including Reps Dick Armey and Tom DeLay of Texas Bob Walker of Pennsylvania and John Kasich of Ohio Aides said they were imple menting plans for taking over This includes cutting hundreds of committee staff jobs and installing Republicans in hundreds more patronage posts in the offices of the House clerk doorkeeper and sergeant at arms and at support agencies as the General Accounting Office and

new idea and may not work but we owe it to ourselves to give it a Brand said If s believed the Indiana FourYear if implemented would make IU the first major public university in the country to oner such apian Suppose a student does everything he or she is supposed to do follows an advisers advice studies hard succeeds in course work declares a major at an appropriate time men still hasnt suc ceeded in Brand said In that case if s our fault because we didnt provide or enable the student to graduate in a timely Brand who became IU president this summer said he would mail a letter today to IU faculty soliciting their input A faculty panel the Educational Poli cies Committee said it believes that the proposal is illadvised would create far more problems than it might solve will hurt the quality of the educational expe rience available to IU students and will lead to an even more negative public perception of Indiana To participate in the Indiana FourYear Path students would have to meet four general conditions Their course programs must be approved by an adviser on a regular basis each semester or year for example depending on school or departmental requirements Students must declare their intended majors or schools early enough to struc ture their courses of study in accordance with the model that each school or department has established for the four year degree program

County Clerk Sue Metcalf that is a process that wont be completed until at least two weeks from now Indiana law says a recount must be requested by Nov 15 she said A recount request is actually a peti tion to view the ballots The other party is then given until Nov 18 next Friday to also file a request to view the ballots After that a bipartisan ballot review board is formed to deter mine how the recount will be con ducted and to execute it That leaves a lot of uncertainty when trying to speculate when a new tally will be determined Met calf said Once the process gets rolling well have a better idea of how long it will she said Both candidates along with attorneys and party officials are allowed to observe the process As of this morning Rudolph had not yet filed a recount request He indicated he would do so immedi ately after final results were announced Tuesday night saying he couldnt look his campaign workers in the eye if he didnt Both Marr and county Democrat Chairman Bolinger said Tues day they were optimistic heading into a recount Bolinger said he has already hired one of the states top election law attorneys for the process Bolinger also looked to the past for optimism saying recounts rarely overturn the results announced on election night If anything they usually turn up a few more for the he said History is on our If Marrs victory is confirmed by the recount he will be the only Howard County Democrat to win election to countywide office this year Hoosier GOP legislators flex muscles INDIANAPOLIS AP Republicans wont take official control of the
