In a significant concession by Bosnia's Muslim-led government, the agreement allows the Serbs, who have captured two-thirds of the country, to form their own "Republik of Srbska" within Bosnia.

The tradeoff is that CBS programs, including Dave's World, Murphy Brown, 60 Minutes and David Letterman, which have been difficult to receive, should come in crystal clear. Unlike the massive upheaval of Jan. 1, 1989, this switch is simple. OPINIONS DEATHS BUSINESS SUN-SENTINEL COMPANY - ALL RIGHTS RESERVED , Ruling on appeal leads Ito to drop jury instruction Prosecution wins Fuhrman issue The Boston Globe LOS ANGELES Judge Lance Ito, responding to a stunning appeals court edict, on Fri day abandoned his plan to tell the O.J. Simpson jury that Mark Fuhrman was "unavailable" for further cross- examination. Ito's decision was a victory for prosecutors, who had filed an emergency appeal on Friday morning arguing the proposed jury instruction could provoke unfair speculation about why Fuhrman would not testify. "The public at large, not only the jury in this case, will be erroneously and indelibly" misled by Ito's suggested wording, the prosecution had contended. "This is clearly not the law." Analysts had almost universally predicted the appeals court would not intervene, a rare occurence in any ongoing trial but especially in such a high-profile one with a sequestered jury. Privately, even prosecutors who helped draft their brief expressed pessimism about getting a favorable ruling. i Packwood forced out of Finance position Senate departure must come by Oct. 1 Los Angeles Times WASHINGTON Sen. Bob Packwood, caving in to Democrats incensed by his continued leadership and even presence in the Senate, stepped down on Friday as chairman of the Finance Committee and agreed to leave the chamber altogether by Oct. 1. Both decisions were recommended by Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, R-Kan., who had argued as recently as Thursday night that Packwood deserved 60 days or more to get his affairs in order before quitting the Senate. Sen. William Roth Jr., R-Del., 74, will succeed Packwood as chairman of the powerful finance panel. In Roth, the committee will have a leader who has supported a number of Clinton administration priorities and who is expected to improve chances that the Senate will pass the tax-cut package already approved by the House. Packwood had been wary of the tax-cut proposals. Packwood, 62, announced his In 1989, network programs on three channels in Miami-Fort Lauderdale and two in Palm Beach County changed, while local newscasts and syndicated shows stayed put.

Presumably to keep from further bogging down the delay-prone case, Ito opted for the easiest and quickest solution: He abandoned his instruction altogether. He then issued a statement thanking the appeals court for moving so rapidly on the issue. At that time, the judge tried to shape a compromise after rejecting a defense request for a harsher jury instruction, saying Fuhrman would not testify because he had invoked his right against self-incrimination. The former detective did that in response to several questions asked without the jury present and, although pleading the Fifth is not supposed to weigh against a witness, Simpson's attorneys clearly hoped to cast a negative impression by providing that information to the jury.
