In a possible preview of the fall presidential race, Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole was preparing the Republican response. One day before his annual report to Congress — which this year is also a sort of opening bell for his re-election campaign — the president said, "I am absolutely confident and optimistic about our ability to meet the challenges that our country faces." Aides expect a generally upbeat address that focuses on America's standing heading into the 21st century. V NASA RESEARCH one During a weekend campaign visit to New Hampshire, Dole said he expected the president's speech to stress themes Clinton will revisit during his re-election bid. "It'll probably be a signal that the race is on. He'll probably bring out his campaign agenda for '96," Dole said. "I assume he'll put the best spin on it he can." The Republicans had asked the major television networks for equal time to give their response Wednesday, but that idea was abandoned when several networks turned them down. Dole's response will immediately follow Clinton's speech, which begins after 8 p.m. Clinton aides expected few new proposals from-the president, who realizes he can get little through the GOP Congress. One of the few will focus on pension reform, the aides said. The address was being pulled together in usual Clinton fashion: A jumble of drafts * circulated Monday among aides tod advisers who expected the president to make changes up to the moment he steps up to the microphone. Clinton Was up past midnight talking with Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin about the speech, White House spokesman Mike McCurry said. Another trait of State of the Union addresses under Clinton has been the length. His 81-minute marathon drew jeers from Republicans last year, and aides aren't sure they can keep Clinton much briefer this time. "I'm. not taking any bets," McCurry said, recommending that Americans brace themselves for a long one. "I'm planning on making sure, I make all the necessary stops before'! sit down to watch Probe makes discoveries about Jupiter Planet is windier, drier than expected, raising new scientific questions By JANE E.

The event was postponed from last Thursday because of bad weather. Calvin Brown, Wesleyan admissions counselor, will give the invocation. Jennifer Gordon, who is known statewide for her singing and poetry readings, will sing "Precious Lord Take My Hand" and read her original poem, "Liberty." Steve Rivers, assistant principal at Salina Central High School, will speak on the theme, "Carrying on the Legacy." The convocation is free and open to the public. MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — The Galileo probe that plunged into Jupiter's atmosphere found it windier and drier than expected, .with less helium and less lightning — findings that may force a rethinking of the nature of the planet and how it formed. Scientists at NASA's Ames Re- Confessed assassin's trial won't be delayed By The Associated Press JERUSALEM — Israel's Supreme Court Monday rejected a petition by Yitzhak Rabin's confessed assassin to delay his trial until a state investigation is completed. The trial, which started briefly in December with a reading of the charges against Yigal Amir, will resume today at the Tel Aviv District Court. Amir, a 25-year-old former law student; has admitted shooting the Israeli prime minister on Nov. 4. search Center disclosed the findings Monday after their release was delayed more than a month by the budget impasse on Capitol Hill. The probe released by the Galileo spacecraft parachuted into the banded, planet's shrouded atmosphere in December, relaying a 57-minute weather report before it vaporized in the extreme heat and pressure. Scientists had expected to find wind up to 220 mph, but the probe appeared to have found wind up to 330 mph and intense turbulence, probably caused by heat escaping from deep inside the planet, scientist Richard Young said. "The probe also discovered an intense new radiation belt approximately 31,000 miles above Jupiter's cloud tops and a veritable absence of .lightning," Young said. , . . It found that lighting occurs on Jupiter only about one-tenth as often as Earth. 3 That reduces the probability of finding complex organic molecules similar to those on Earth, the scientists said. Life on Earth is believed to have formed in that primordial soup of complex organ- ic molecules. Project scientists said surprises in Jupiter's atmospheric composition included significantly lower than expected levels of helium, .neon and elements like carbon, oxygen and sulftir. Most scientists believe that the solar system evolved from a primordial cloud of dust and gas, but the probe's findings about its makeup may force them to re-evaluate those views, NASA said. V BUDGET SHOWDOWN Hope for pact gets dimmer By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Republican congressional leaders searched Monday for a way > to avoid a new federal shutdown at week's end, but showed little desire to heed President Clinton's pleas for .a quick extension of the government's borrowing authority. Eager to avoid election-, year blame for a third partial closure of federal agencies, Republicans hoped for, passage as early as Wednesday of legislation keeping programs functioning. The trick for Republican leaders was balancing conservatives' demands for budget slashes with a bill Clinton would sign. They were considering financing affected agencies at about 75 percent of last year's levels and eliminating some minor programs whose termination Clinton might accept. The focus on keeping the government open and on federal borrowing reflected a belief by many Republicans that their effort to reach a budget-balancing agreement with Clinton was probably over. Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole said there was "still some glimmer of hope" that a deal could be 1 completed.
