Mrs. Dole, 62, made her plans known as Sen. John Ashcroft privately told surprised supporters that he will announce Tuesday that he has decided not to run for president. The Missouri law maker had spent the last year laying the groundwork for a presidential bid, and was considered one of the strongest prospects among social conservatives. Addressing 500 cheering, sometimes teary-eyed employees, Mrs. Dole announced plans to leave in two weeks, after nearly eight years as head of the nonprofit relief group. "There may be another way for me to serve our country." she said at the organization's historic headquarters two blocks from the W hite House. In an interview later. Mrs. Dole said she plans to decide by March whether to run. "I'm going to give it serious consideration." she said. Yet friends and allies say Mrs. Dole is determined to run for president if her financial and political support is as strong as shesuspects. "I'm sure she's preparing to commit herself." said pollster Tony Fabrizio. who worked for former Sen. Bob. Dole's 1996 presidential campaign. "She's beyond soul-searching." said one longtime friend, speaking on condition of anonymity. "She's down to finding out whether the money is there are whether the supporters are there." Her entry would add a compelling wrinkle to a GOP presidential field that is still takingshape. In the most recent developments:-- Two Ashcroft supporters, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the lawmaker called them Monday and said he won't run. Said a third adviser, conservative activist Paul Weyrich: "My understanding is. as one of his advisers, that he is not going to run." Ashcroft planned to announce his plans Tuesday, and aides said they didn't know what he would do. Sen. Bob Smith of New Hampshire formed a presidential exploratory committee Monday, but is considered a longshot candidate. The step allows him to raise and spend money before SEE DOLE CONTINUED ON PG. 3 Catholic Colleges dispute proposal for Vatican power ment before aftrral vote later this year. Critics, includirrg some college presi- ment containing guidelines for maintain- millions of dollars Robin Estkin Associated Press Writer BOSTON (AP) - Some of the nation's 236 Catholic universities and colleges fear a proposal to give the Vatican tighter control over their operations would erode academic standards and their national standing. Details of the change to church control were proposed in November at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. The bishops gave schools until May to com The plan would require presidents of Catholic colleges to take an oath of fidelity to the church and force theologians to get permission to teach from local bishops. The universities also would be urged to recruit "faithful Catholics" for their faculties and boards of trustees. "It is an attempt to clarify the meaning of Catholic, when you use that as an adjective before your institution," the Rev. Terrence Toland said Monday. Toland headed the committee that drafted the proposal. dents, say the proposal could hurt faculty recruitment, prompt lawsuits over hiring and free-speech issues, and threaten federal funding for student loans. "This is the kind of thing that will just scare the pants off faculty' in any Catholic university because it just sounds like the church officials are going to come in and police the university without any respect for academic freedom," said Thomas J. Reese, editor of America, a weekly Jesuit magazine. In 1990, the Vatican released a docu ing the religious identities of Catholic uni versities. U.S. bishops agreed on details for implementation in late 1996, but the Vatican rejected them, demanding tighter language to guarantee the bishops'control. The bishops say the stricter proposal isn't final, but it is raising serious concerns. Some fear the plan also could cost schools in government aid. If a Catholic school is controlled by a bishop -- rather than by a board of lay trustees -- it would be classified as a religious institution, making it ineligible for worth of government funding, includ ing financial aid pack ges for students. The universities say the dispute isn't about maintaining their Catholic identities and their ties with the church, two objectives they share. "We want these places to lie as effectively Catholic as the bishops do." said Charles Currie. president, of the28-mem-ber Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities. "We simply want to do it in a way which we think is appropriate within American higher education." 350 yssr c!d scholarship found A long-!ostr-350-year-old scholarship ; fund endowed by a! feudal lord has been discovered and will soon benefit six poor univer sity students.
