Astronaut won't be able to vote By The Associated Press CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Astronaut John Blaha will have to sit out next week's election. Blaha, who has been in orbit aboard the Russian space station Mir since September and won't be back until after Inauguration Day, missed the deadline Tuesday for applying for an absentee ballot from his home state of Texas. NASA was unable to e-mail the documents up to Blaha in time. Blaha said last week he was "all for" President Clinton. But he added that "we'll get a great result" regardless of whether Clinton or Bob Dole wins. CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. — Promising to win one for "Mr. Lincoln," Bob Dole began his final push for an electoral breakthrough Wednesday by suggesting President Clinton's re-election would plunge the nation into a recession. "The Clinton recovery ended today," Dole said at a campus rally here as he stumped for votes in the South. The region is generally a GOP presidential stronghold, but Dole is still struggling to bolster his standing there. Seizing on a new government report showing that the economy slowed in the July-September quarter, the Republican.chal- lenger asserted that the U.S. economy "is barely afloat" under Clinton's stewardship. "It doesn't take a team of economists to tell you what happens when you mix slow growth with increased taxes: That's a recipe for economic collapse," Dole said. "If this is a recovery, I can hardly wait for the recession." Dole warned of a "Clinton recession" in the advance text of his remarks, but he did not use that phrase in his speech. He cited a string of recent economic reports, culminating with Wednesday's Commerce Department finding that growth had slowed to 2.2 percent in the July- September quarter, down from a sizzling 4.7 percent the previous quarter. "Today, I'm afraid the truth about the Clinton economy is getting easier to see," Dole told a fieldhouse rally at Austin Peay State University. "This is a real economic slowdown." It was a reach for Dole, whose suggestions of a fast-deteriorating economy under Clinton have been undercut by most economic statistics and challenged by some mainstream economists. Investors suggested the latest economic report lessened chances that the Federal Reserve would raise interest rates to head off inflation. Clinton, campaigning in Michigan, said the new figures show that the economy is healthier than four years ago. "Our economy continues to grow steady and strong," he said. Dole has proposed a 15 percent across-the-board tax cut, a $500 per child tax credit and halving the capital gains tax to 14 percent from 28 percent. He suggests his $550 billion, six-year economic package would spur the economy to grow at The Associated Press GOP hopeful Bob Dole looks at his wife, Elizabeth, during her Introduction Wednesday at Dole's rally In Clarksville, Tenn. a more robust annual rate of about 3.5 percent. The fresh attack on Clinton's economic policies came as Dole began a final weeklong tour of the country, many of his destinations yet to be determined. After a last night at home in Washington before the election, Dole began the trip with a stop at the Lincoln Memorial. He and his wife, Elizabeth, walked partway up the steps of the massive monument honoring the father of the Republican Party. "I need(ed) a little inspiration and maybe a word or two for silent prayer," Dole explained to his Tennessee audience. Then, he declared: "We are going to win this election, Mr. Lincoln." "We are the party of Lincoln and I'm proud of it. He never lost his focus and he did what he set out to do. ... He kept the nation together. That's what I want to do." The week could be -Dole's last campaign hurrah after seeking national office for 20 years. He unsuccessfully sought the GOP nomination in 1980 and 1988, and was the party's vice presidential candidate in 1976. As he has been doing for days, the former Senate majority leader told his Tennessee audience to ignore polls showing him trailing Clinton in nearly every region of the country. "You are the polls, you are the polls," he told cheering supporters. He also renewed-the ethical attacks on Clinton that have become a staple of his stump speech, saying, "We cannot afford four more years of scandal and weak leadership." After Tennessee, Dole was traveling to New Orleans and to Tampa. He was to be joined at a rally in Tampa on Thursday by former President George Bush. President knows his days of running for office are near an end By RON FOURNIER The Associated Press YPSILANTI, Mich. — Win or lose, Bill Clinton will soon stop doing what he has always done best: Running for election. So it was with a touch of melancholy that the president opened his final campaign swing Wednesday, targeting women voters and confidently countering Bob Dole's last-ditch blows. "I don't deserve all the credit," he said at an Eastern Michigan University rally. "But our policies have helped you create ... jobs." The rally began a non-stop blitz to Election Day, with Clinton scheduled to make at least 20 stops in some 13 states — including a sentimental Arkansas homecoming Tuesday. Aides are planning a triumphant victory celebration inside the gates of the Old State House, where Clinton announced his presidential aspirations in October 1991 and declared victory 13 months later. With a constitutional restriction on presidential terms, this is almost certainly Clinton's last national campaign. Mindful of the coming milestone, the president has half-joked that he could still return to Arkansas and run for school board. It's no wonder. Clinton once appeared on 17 Arkansas ballots in 17 years; for most of his adult life, he has lived and governed with the next campaign in mind. He thrives on public approval, craves the handshake-to-handshake contact many politicians dread and measures himself against a never-ending flow of poll numbers. He was flying to Colorado late Wednesday for two nighttime events, then boarding Air Force One again for Phoenix. Michigan and Colorado, both battleground states, sided with Clinton in 1992. He holds a whopping lead in Michigan polls and holds a single-digit lead in Colorado. Arizona, where he plans to campaign this morning, is one of several traditionally Republican states where Clinton could edge Dole. The press corps swelled for the homestretch trip, with 105 journalists aboard a White House charter to Michigan. Another 10 or so are expected to sign up this week/or the dawn-to-dusk duty. Clinton's schedule, which could change with campaign ebbs and flows, puts him in Nevada, California, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Ohio'and Kentucky. It reflects Clinton's endgame The Associated Press President Clinton puts his head against the head of Stephanie Smith, Belleville, Mich, after a speech Wednesday In Ypsllantl, Mich. Smith has a unique autoimmune disorder. strategy: Solidify Democratic strongholds, help congressional candidates in states that fit his plans to reach 270 electoral votes and try to cherrypick victories in traditionally Republican states like Arizona, Texas and Florida. Thematically, the president plans to play it safe and spend much of the final week focusing on issues that Democratic polling shows has powerful appeal to independent voters, particularly women. While polls show Clinton ahead in California, he responded to Dole's attacks on his immigration policy with a new television ad saying he sent thousands more border agents to California. The spot, which also points out that Time magazine suggested Dole's economic plan could result in a reduction of border and FBI agents, was running all across California. In Michigan, he promised an extension of a Small Business Administration program designed to help female entrepreneurs. The program, which gives special attention to female applicants, is now available in 16 states and will be extended nationwide. He also announced a new Internet network to link investors with small business owners in search of capital. "What American businesswomen need is a tax cut, not a Web site," said Dole campaign spokeswoman Christina Martin, "and as every businessperson knows, the major obstacle to starting a new business is the burdensome regulations of big government — a government that has only gotten bigger under Bill Clinton." Clinton has worked methodically this year to woo female voters with small-bore programs designed to improve schools, the environment and family life around the edges. The strategy has helped create a huge advantage over Dole in polls of female voters. Senate / Views on spending debated FROM PAGE A1 more, asked Thompson if she would support requiring unions to let their members know when their dues were being used for political purposes. The AFL-CIO has sponsored ads attacking Republican candidates across the country. But Thompson said union dues were not used to support political campaigns. Campaigning as moderates, Thompson and Docking continued to accuse Roberts and Brownback of wanting to irresponsibly slash federal programs and spending. Roberts and Brownback claimed they did not propose cuts in programs suck as Medicare, student loans and Headstart. Docking said she opposed eliminating the Department of Education, while Brownback said he supported state and local control of education. Brownback asked Docking what federal programs she would eliminate. She replied that she would look at what she called "re- sponsible" cuts. When asked about new telecommunications legislation that deregulated the broadcasting industry and spurred large mergers and consolidations, all four candidates said they supported increased competition. But they said they would look at whether rural areas were harmed. ON THE RECORD Hospital report Salina Regional Health Center PENN ADMISSIONS — David T. Roy, Minneapolis.
