WASHINGTON -- Russia and most of the former Soviet republics were invited yesterday to join the capitalist world's two premier financial institutions, clearing the way for a massive injection of Western aid and what Moscow's new economic "czar" called a "radical speeding up" of foreign investment.The admission of the emergent democracies widens the global scope of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.The two institutions, formed at a meeting of 44 nations in the New Hampshire village of Bretton Woods in 1944, have helped guide economic and financial order in the free world since.

BUCHAREST, Romania -- NATO countries unanimously endorsed Bush administration plans for installing a missile defense system in alliance countries in Europe yesterday even as they rebuffed President Bush's entreaties to extend membership of the alliance to the former Soviet republics of Ukraine and Georgia. The unusually rancorous meeting of NATO members in Bucharest exposed sharp differences between nations, but despite the rancor Bush won some agreement on bolstering the number of NATO troops in Afghanistan and presenting a united front against Russia's objections on the issue of missile defense.

The Maryland chapter of the ACLU is conducting a survey of 13 Annapolis-area private clubs to see if they have minorities and women in their membership, the group announced yesterday. Under a 1991 law, the city grants liquor licenses to private clubs only if they have bylaws that do not discriminate against race or gender. No information is available on whether more minorities and women belong to clubs as a result of the law. "This seems to me to be the natural follow-up question: Has the law made a difference?"

LAS VEGAS -- With the AFL-CIO focusing on recruiting more workers, the labor leaders gathered here for the federation's winter meeting were stunned and stumped by the latest news on union membership.According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, union membership fell by 159,000 last year, to 16.1 million, even though unions have pumped millions of dollars more into organizing and said they recruited 385,000 more workers in 1997. This decline was especially worrisome, union officials acknowledged, because the economy added 2.8 million jobs.

TRAVEMUENDE, Germany -- European defense ministers embraced yesterday a Clinton administration plan that offers former Soviet republics and East European countries closer cooperation with NATO but not early membership in the alliance.The plan, which Defense Secretary Les Aspin outlined in Travemuende at a meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, raised the possibility of the eventual assimilation of the former Warsaw Pact countries into NATO. The plan is also a gesture to Germany, which has pressed to expand the 16-nation alliance to include nations of the former Warsaw Pact.

THANKS TO far-reaching federal regulatory changes voted last week, the best source for home mortgage money in the new year may be a membership organization you don't even belong to yet: a credit union in your area.The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) board approved guidelines that will allow thousands of credit unions to reach out to small groups of potential new members for the first time since 1996. The board also broadened eligibility requirements for millions of people currently excluded from membership -- unrelated members of existing credit union members' households.

Speculation abounds that Larry Young is running for president of the Baltimore branch of the NAACP to mount a political comeback. But it's questionable whether the local branch - in the shadows of the headquarters of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People - is a strong enough political forum for that. Although nearly 630,000 people live in Baltimore, fewer than 1 percent - or 4,000 people - are branch members. What's more, branch President G.I. Johnson acknowledges that of the 4,000 members, only about 500 are active.
