Bush announced last Tuesday he
would retain Nicholas Brady as
treasury secretary. He told reporters
Friday he was concentrating on
naming the rest of his economic team
before turning his attention to defense
and national security posts.
Transition sources, who spoke only
on condition that they not be iden
tified, said the directorship of the
White House Office of Management
and Budget post would go to Darman
and that Boskin, a Stanford Univer
sity economics professor, had been
tapped to head the Council on
Economic Advisers. Both nomina
tions have been widely expected.
Darman was the top aide and
protege to James Baker during his
four years as President Reagan's first
chief of staff. In Reagan's second
"I believe the PLO has gone as far
as it was asked to go and has
contributed its share for progress
toward a just and comprehensive
peace," the king said.
Israel for years has pinned its peace
hopes on a separate deal with Hus

insists that the PLO take part in any
Midclle East settlement.

National Council last week endorsed

SATs has increased significantly,"
Cell said. Of the 3,242 freshmen, 860
have SATs over 1200. Of these 860,
666 were from North Carolina.
Cell called this a "significant
figure." "I think it's unfortunate
when, on occasion, comments are
made on this campus which suggest
that all the right students come from
out-of-state," she said. "Clearly that
figure suggests that that is far from
being the case."
Cell also reported that the honors
