WASHINGTON -- Democrat Fritz Hollings, at 79 still the junior senator from South Carolina behind ageless (actually 98-year-old) Republican Strom Thurmond, stood alone on the Senate floor the other afternoon, figuratively spitting into the wind. With none of the other 99 senators in sight, Mr. Hollings proposed at length a constitutional amendment intended to solve the dispute over campaign finance reform. But, as Mr. Hollings well knew, there was no chance whatever of Senate approval. The hot issue of what to do about out-of-control campaign fund-raising and spending had dominated the Senate with lively debate for more than a week.

WASHINGTON - After the shuttle Columbia disintegrated Feb. 1, many supporters of NASA expected a renewed national debate on the goals of the space program. But nine months later, supporters of space exploration and its science programs say that the subject appears to be in danger of slipping below the national horizon. "There have been fits and starts of a national debate," said Sen. Ernest F. Hollings of South Carolina, the ranking Democrat on the Commerce Committee, which has jurisdiction over NASA.

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Ernest Hollings, the prime sponsor of a bill to rewrite the nation's laws governing telecommunications, has agreed to drop a controversial provision in an effort to remove the latest obstacle threatening its passage this year.Responding to concerns raised last week by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, the South Carolina Democrat said he would change language in his proposal to make sure nothing in it could be considered a tax.Tax provisions probably would have been the death of the bill, because it would have required more detailed review before the Senate could vote on it, and there is little time left before Congress adjourns for the year in October.

Sen. Ernest F. (Fritz) Hollings bided his time, let the Clinton administration dither away precious weeks on the legislative calendar, then launched a delaying attack on the pending global trading bill this week just as his colleagues were chafing to go home for elections. It is not that the White House was not forewarned. Mr. Hollings is not only a senator from South Carolina but the senator from the textile industry, a protectionist dedicated to the preservation of low-cost jobs even if high-paying export jobs have to be sacrificed in the process.

WASHINGTON -- In a hardball play aimed at preserving his last hope for a major legislative victory this fall, President Clinton threatened yesterday to call the Senate back for a rare "lame-duck" session after the congressional elections if it fails by then to vote on a far-reaching accord that would reduce many barriers to world trade."

WASHINGTON -- Last week, Washington was a sight to behold. Two sights, actually, both involving hardy perennials. The city was a riot of cherry blossoms. And senators were again attacking the First Amendment. Thirty-three senators -- 30 Democrats and three Republicans -- voted to amend the First Amendment to vitiate its core function, which is to prevent government regulation of political communication. The media generally ignored this: evidently assaults on the First Amendment are now too routine to be newsworthy.

USING THE shipping wharves of Philadelphia as his backdrop, President Bush announced wartime security measures this week meant to instill confidence that the nation's seaports are protected. But Ernest F. Hollings, the acerbic senator from South Carolina, tuned in and observed: "The nearest thing we have to port security in the Port of Philadelphia was [the president's] Coast Guard jacket." The veteran Democrat may have indulged in a bit of dramatic license, but his concern about the vulnerability of America's vast waterfront is widely shared.

WASHINGTON - South Carolina's Democratic Sen. Ernest F. "Fritz" Hollings announced his plans yesterday to retire from the seat he has held since 1966, raising Republican hopes for broadening their majority in the South and the Senate. Hollings, 81, is the second veteran Democratic senator from the South to announce plans to retire. Sen. Zell Miller of Georgia, who often votes with Republicans, said in January that he would not seek re-election in 2004. Republicans, who hold 51 of 100 Senate seats, were encouraged by the news of another open seat in the South, where the GOP has been gaining strength.

The first time Diane Holl went to a race with her dad, Tony, she was bored, really bored."But my dad said, `You have to have someone to root for. Pick a driver and you'll find an interest.' "Today, at age 34, Holl laughs at those childhood feelings."It's like anything else," says the Englishwoman. "It's like football. If you don't find a quarterback or a team you like, you have no interest in who wins. In my case, it was a remarkably fast transition. It's a passion now."The team she roots for now is her team.
