HOUSTON (AP) — With Russian voters poised to ay “nyet” to a Communist a their next president, few observers are more relieved than those in the American oil industry.

Hutchison, Lsutsnbsrq Tangle Over Stalking SHI
WASHINGTON (AP)—Two senators took their increasingly bitter squabble to the Senate floor, arguing over who’s to blame for the delay in passage of legislation seeking to crack down on stalking across state lines.
Texas Republican Sen. Ray Bailey Hutchison accused Sen. Frank Laut-enberg, D-N.J., of holding her anti-stalking legislation “hostage” by seeking to attach a measure of his own that would deny gun ownership to anyone convicted of domestic violence. Inclusion of that provision effectively torpedoes a vote on the stalking measure, she contends.
“For him to say that he requires that his amendment be taken up with this bill, which has been cleared by 99 members of the Senate, I think is a smoke screen,” she said Wednesday during floor debate.
Lautenberg, meanwhile, accused the Republican leadership of blocking consideration of his measure. “The concern is it’s too controversial apparently to take guns out of the hands of wife beaters and child abusers,” he charged.

AUSTIN (AP) — A sharp rise in student fees at state colleges and universities in Texas has lawmakers studying whether the increases are justified and just what the money is paying for.
“There's page after page after page of fees,” Rep. Steve Ogden, vice-chairman of a House higher education subcommittee, said Wednesday. “The Legislature is confused. The students and parents are confused, and I wouldn't be surprised if most university presidents are confused."
