Greenwood, S.C- Wed., Nov. 4, 1992 Women post Senate gains WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate will look a little more like the rest of the country in January when it swears in a self-styled "mom in tennis shoes," an Indian artisan from Colorado and the first black woman ever elected to the chamber., . Democrats were well-positionefl to pad their 57-seat majority by one, as Republican hopes of gaining strength were dashed in Tuesday's voting. Among newcomers who will be take the oath in January are Ben Nighthorse Campbell, a native American from Colorado; Carol Moseley Braun of Illinois, the first black woman; and Patty Murray of Washington state. All are Democrats. Voters tossed out three incumbents. A fourth. Democrat Wyche Fowler Jr. of Georgia, appeared headed for a runoff. Women increased their numbers in the Senate from three to seven, with twin victories in California as well as the successes in Washington and Dlinois. But female challengers lost to incumbents in Pennsylvania and Missouri Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell, D-Maine, said the newcomers would represent "a welcome change" for the Senate. "I think all institutions need constant change and renewal, and to the extent that we're getting this change, I think it's a healthy thing," he said. "This election points the way to (he future," said Braun, a Democrat who upset incumbent Alan J. Dixon in the Dlinois primary and went on to defeat Republican Richard Williamson. In Washington state, Murray, a state senator who turned the derisive term of "mom in tennis shoes" into her rallying cry, defeated Republican Rep. Rod Chandler for the seat of retiring Democratic Sen. Brock Adams. And in California, voters sent Global leaders eye revitalized economy LONDON (AP) Global leaders today reminded Bill Clinton of Washington's responsibilities as the sole superpower and said revitalizing the U.S. economy is important to the entire world. Iraqis danced in the streets to celebrate President Bush's loss, but Kuwaitis were heartbroken. Across the continents, reaction was generally upbeat, although several leaders expressed concern that Clinton might lead the United States on a more protectionist path in trade. Chancellor Helmut Kohl of Germany, in a somber message, said "close solidarity" with the United States "is even more important as we face new challenges after the end of the East-West conflict" "Our hopes for a more peaceful world and for the carrying out of human rights, democracy and a market economy everywhere in Europe and in the world still have not been fulfilled," he said. Some European politicians worry that Clinton might quickly cut U.S. military strength in Europe at a time when they believe an American presence is desperately needed because of increasing instability. President Boris Yeltsin of Rus-. sia expressed hope for a continuation of the partnership established during the Bush presidency, said presidential spokesman Vyacheslav Kostikov. Foreign policy took a back seat to the economy in the U.S. election campaign, but many governments said Clinton must recognize America's global leadership. "I believe the leadership of the United States is as necessary as ever to preserve peace and enhance democracy and a market economy all over the world," President Ron Tae-woo of South Korea said in his congratulatory message. In Japan, Foreign Minister Mi-chio Watanabe said a revitalized American economy "is important not only for the United States alone but also for Japan and for the whole world." He had been quoted Tuesday by the national Asahi newspaper as fretting that the Democrats would "apply the brakes to Japan's selling products cheaply." Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt expressed hope that Clinton would "resist the protectionist J3 m fcln'SiBl- two women to the Senate: Democrats Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein. Feinstein triumphed over Republican Sen. John Seymour, two years after losing her bid for governor. Boxer, an outspoken House liberal, defeated conservative television commentator Bruce Hers-chensohn despite his attacks on her for 143 overdrafts on the House bank. "We will be the Cagney-Lacey, one-two punch, for the state of California. So Washington, ready or not here we come," Feinstein declared. Three women held Senate seats going into Tuesday. Sea Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., easily defeated Republican Alan Keyes. Sen. Nancy Kassebaum, R-Kan., wasn't up for re-election, and Jocelyn Burdick, D-NJX, who succeeded ber late husband Quentin Burdick, chose not to seek a full six-year term. In Colorado, Campbell became the first senator of American Indian descent elected to the Senate in more than half a century when he defeated Republican Terry Considine. Democrats had 37 holdover senators going into the elections. They won 20 of the 35 seats up for grabs, and Fowler was leading in another. That set up the party to increase its strength to 58 seats. But Fowler appeared headed into a runoff with Republican Paul Coverde'll after a third-party candidate held the incumbent's margin slightly below the 50 percent required for outright victory. With 98 percent of precincts reporting, Fowler had 49 percent of the vote to 48 percent for Coverdell and 3 percent for Jim Hudson. In Oregon, Sen. Robert Pack-wood, R-Ore., seeking a fifth term, won a bitter, down-to-the-wire race against Democratic Rep. Les AuCoin. winds." Markets had anticipated Clinton's victory, and generally reacted calmly. In the Mideast Arabs and Israelis said they could work with Clinton. "Syria and the Arabs are committed to the peace process, and they expect President Clinton to be an honest broker between the Arabs and Israel, taking no one side against the other," said Syria's foreign minister, Farouk al-Sharaa. Peace negotiations "will continue, and I'm convinced that also the new administration will show deep and serious interest in the talks," said Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres. In Baghdad, groups of Iraqi businessmen celebrated Bush's defeat by dancing in the streets and chanting "Bush out but Saddam lives forever." Zaurier Halim, a soldier in the Iraqi army that U.S.-led international troops forced from Kuwait in the Persian Gulf War, said: "Our wounds have finally healed." But Bush was not forgotten. "This is a sad day for Kuwait" said journalist Khaled Thiab. "We owed this man the return of both our country and our democracy." Foreign Minister Geza Jeszens-zky of Hungary praised Bush as "an active player in the fall of communism." "We shouldn't just let George Bush sink into history, he's been a good friend to this country and of the alliance," said British Foreign Secretary Douglas Hurd. if For I Iffcll I IV I t 'If Tom Cruise LOS ANGELES (AP) Tom Cruise and his agent have set up a film production shop at Paramount in an exclusive multi-picture deal.

"We don't understand why it works, but it does," said Dr. Bart Chemow, a physician at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore. Results of the study were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The research involved 100 patients randomly selected when they entered the New England Medical Center in Boston for bypass surgery. Fifty received an injection of magnesium chloride solution. The rest received a placebo. Eight of the 50 treated with magnesium, or 16 percent suffered heart rhythm problems after surgery, while 17 of the placebo patients, or 34 percent bad erratic heartbeats. Magnesium is believed to relax blood vessel walls and improve blood flow. A British study released in June found that magnesium injections immediately following a heart attack improved chances of survival. -. pp CHRISTMAS IS COMING But our decorations are already here.
