Concerned over new indications that a hole is developing in the ozone layer over the Arctic, the Bush Administration may accelerate its schedule for banning chemicals that damage the protective layer of the Earth's atmosphere. Under consideration, Administration sources said Thursday, is a proposal to advance from the year 2000 to 1995 an international deadline to phase out chlorofluorocarbons, a family of chlorine-based refrigerants and solvents.

Oil coats the hulls of fishing boats in the ice along the banks of the Pechora River. In bays and inlets near this Arctic Circle village of reindeer farmers and salmon fishermen, frozen oil droplets fleck the ice. The black crude is a greasy rebuke to Russian officials, who insist that the majestic Pechora--and the rich fishing grounds that stretch to the Arctic Ocean--have not been polluted by this country's largest oil spill.

Here at the foot of the Brooks Range, a week's trek north of the Arctic Circle, slabs of caribou meat as big as your shoulder hang over a smoky campfire. Skinned and roasted caribou heads pile up for serving at dinner like so many lumpy footballs. Caribou antlers stand as festive sculptures. A band of 250 Gwich'in Indians move about in ceremonial caribou-hide clothing against the chill of impending autumn. "Caribou," the Gwich'in say, in a solemn explanation of the obvious, "is our life."

It made for a splashy centerpiece to Barbara Boxer's fund-raising push for reelection -- about 1,000 women at a $175-a-plate gala at San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel, with cholesterol-conscious Chinese chicken salad and matzo instead of rolls in honor of Passover, and an all-star lineup of seven U.S. senators, all Democratic women, in honor of Boxer. Boxer, who's had the word "liberal" appended to her name for ages, spoke about peace and terrorist attacks, but not the war.
