The audience of mostly men roundly cheered speakers who opposed deploying women as combat aviators, according to a videotape of the Sept. 7, 1991, workshop, and jeered women officers who asked about their futures in naval aviation.

Garrett, the Navy's top civilian, tendered his resignation in a letter to President Bush, who accepted it without the customary references to regret at the loss of a high-ranking official.

The move, led by Rep. John P. Murtha (D-Pa.), a hard-nosed former Marine who chairs the panel's defense appropriations subcommittee, is expected to be approved by the House when it votes on the $253-billion defense budget Thursday.

The Navy's brig at 32nd Street Naval Base, touted as a solution to the crowding of the county's jails, may need hundreds of thousands of dollars in renovation--which is one reason Navy officials considered tearing it down, Navy officials said Tuesday. The rundown building would need considerable work to refurbish--possibly costing as much as $875,000, one Navy source said. The need for such an expensive renovation, however, could kill the county's hopes of using the brig.
