CLINTONITES COZY UP TO TECHIES

In sharp contrast to the Bush Administration, which refused to single out industries for government support, techie Clintonites are unabashedly wielding a helping hand. On Mar. 2, Vice-President Al Gore announced a plan to help the semiconductor industry develop incredibly small circuits and other technologies. Scientists in the Commerce and Energy Depts. will work on sophisticated tools for measuring and simulating both chips and chipmaking processes, while other agencies will fund advances in tiny machines. "Leadership in microelectronics is critical to America's future," says Gore. Even so, new money for the initiative totals only a few million dollars for fiscal 1995.EDITED BY KEITH H. HAMMONDS
