Guatemala
GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala
(UPI) - Guatemala offered Tuesday
to step in as host of next month's
Central American summit as the


diplomatic flap embroiling El
Salvador and Nicaragua increased
pressure to move the meeting from
Managua.
Foreign Minister Ariel Rivera said
the site of the summit should be
changed to Guatemala in view of the
likelihood Salvadoran President
Alfredo Cristiani would boycott any
meeting held in Nicaragua, which he
has accused of running guns to El
Salvador's leftist rebels.
The presidents of Costa Rica, El
Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and
Nicaragua are scheduled to meet
Dec. 8-9 to discuss ways of saving the
Central American peace process
brokered in 1987 by Costa Rican
President Oscar Arias.
Arias, who won the 1987 Nobel
Peace Prize for his work, also called
for a change in venue, saying
deteriorating relations between


offers to h
Managua and San Salvador threaten
prospects for peace.
Salvadoran President Alfredo
Cristiani Sunday suspended
diplomatic and commercial ties with
Managua, accusing Nicaraguan
President Daniel Ortega's
government of sending a shipment of
heat-seeking anti-aircraft missiles to
El Salvador's Farabundo Marti
National Liberation Front, or
FMLN.
Cristiani said he would not attend
the next Central American summit
unless an alternate site is found.
The FMLN rebels have waged a
decade-long armed struggle against
the U.S.-backed Salvadoran
government that has cost over 72,000
lives.
The Guatemalan foreign minister
said his government is willing to be
host of the summit sometime in
December.

Verification responsible for

UNITED NATIONS (AP) -
Secretary-General Javier Perez de
Cuellar said Tuesday the United
States is obligated to pay its U.N.
dues even if the General Assembly
votes to recognize the PLO as the
nation of Palestine.
With a showdown vote between
the United States and PLO looming
Friday, diplomats said they have
little hope for a compromise that
would avert a U.S. cutoff of funds for
the United Nations.
On Monday, the Palestine
Liberation Organization said Arab
nations plan to push a resolution
through the General Assembly
recognizing the PLO as an observer
nation.
The State Department immediate-
ly threatened to cut off all U.S.
support for the United Nations if the
General Assembly approved the step.

WASHINGTON (UPI) -
President Bush signed a $938 million
three-year aid package for Poland
and Hungary Tuesday, saying the
funds must be "seed money" to put
the two Eastern European nations on

Bush signed the measure at nearby
Blair House, the president's guest
house, where he hosted a send-off
reception for the 50-member U.S.
economic delegation to Poland.

"We've got to recognize the fact
that dollars alone won't make, the

State completes Amtrak case


SPALATKA, Fla. (UPI) - State
prosecutors wrapped up- their case
against Amtrak Tuesday in the first
criminal trial in the nation of a
passenger rail service accused of
dumping human waste from its
trains.
Lt. Bob Lee of the Florida Game
and Fish Commission and three
other witnesses testified they saw
Amtrak passenger cars spraying a
"brown liquid" onto its tracks.
Lee said he first became aware of
Amtrak's dumping in November of
1988 and later recorded several
incidents when Amtrak dumped raw
human sewage along its tracks over
the St. Johns River and Rice Creek, a
tributary.
He said he also witnessed a May 18
incident in which a couple was
sprayed by liquid from a passing
Amtrak train while fishing in a boat
near the trestle over Rice Creek. The
couple testified about the incident
Monday.


Amtrak is charged with four felony
counts of commercial littering.
It initially faced a misdemeanor
charge of creating a health nuisance,

cannot threaten me if I ask you to pay
what you owe me, don't you think so?
"Sometimes I think I have the
impression that the Americans think
that they're making a loan. The
Americans ought to pay what they
owe.
"What I don't understand is the
link, how they link the two things
together," he said.
"It is an obligation under the U.N.
Charter, it's a treaty obligation,"
added his spokesman, Francois
Giuliani.
European and Nordic diplomats,
who often play a buffer role in the
recurring U.S.-PLO confrontations,
worked on a compromise but said
privately they had little hope.
The PLO wants its status as a
permanent observer mission raised
from that of organization to nation,
like North Korea and South Korea,
Monaco, the Vatican, San Marino
and Switzerland.
Observer nations don't have voting
rights and can only speak only if
invited by the assembly.


Upgrading the PLO's status would
take a simple majority vote of the 159
General Assembly members. As a
member of the 102-member Non-
Aligned Movement, the PLO has
more than enough votes to prevail.
The United States has paid 65
million dollars of its 216-million-
dollar assessment, but is still more
than 307 million dollars in arrears to
the regular budget from withholding
U.N. dues during the administration
of former President Ronald Reagan.
Reagan ordered U.S. dues
withheld until the world body
trimmed its budget and bureaucracy.
Last year he expressed satisfaction
with the United Nations' progress in
reform and ordered full repayment of
U.S. dues, but Congress has not
authorized payment of the arrears,
citing budget deficits.
Congress recently passed a foreign
appropriations bill that requires the
administration to cut funds for any
group that moves to recognize the
PLO or upgrade its status.


but Circuit Judge Robert Perry
dismissed the charge Tuesday, saying
the state had not proven that
anyone's health was harmed by the
spraying. However, he said the
misdemeanor charge should be tried
in a county court.
The felony charges carry a
maximum fine of $20,000 and a 20-
year prison sentence.
Before any witnesses were called to
the stand Tuesday morning, Amtrak
lawyers' sought dismissal of the
charges because of a comment made
by Volusia County State Attorney
John Tanner to a newspaper that he
might seek jail time for Amtrak
executives if there is a conviction.
Ed Booth, a Jacksonville, Fla.,
lawyer hired to defend Amtrak, said
such a request would violate previous
agreements made in the case. Perry
declined to dismiss the case, though,
saying that he, not Tanner, will have
jurisdiction over the sentence if
Amtrak is convicted.
Amtrak does not deny the
dumping practice, which has made it
the subject of complaints in other
states as well. Its representatives
maintain, however, that Amtrak is
regulated by federal laws that
supercede state environmental laws.

Teacher competency tests now given in 44 states


WASHINGTON (AP) - Forty-
four states now require school
teachers to pass competency tests -
up from just 10 in 1980, the American
Institutes for Research said Monday
in its annual teacher testing survey.
The not-for-profit scientific
research firm, which specializes in
behavioral and social sciences, said
only 10 states required teacher testing
for elementary and secondary
schools back in 1980.
Now, the only states that do not
administer competency tests are


Alaska, Iowa, Michigan, New
Hampshire, South Dakota and
Vermont.
Teachers have had little problem
passing the tests, according to the
study, which was conducted as part
of the federally funded ERIC
Clearinghouse on Tests, Measure-
ment, and Evaluation. The
clearinghouse, which is operated by
American Institutes, provides
information on educational testing
and evaluation.
States commonly use two types of


tests to assess teacher competency -
certification tests for graduates of
teacher education programs and
admissions tests for people who
apply to teacher education programs
before they can be enrolled. Most
tests are standardized variety, but a
few states use customized tests
created exclusively for their own
jurisdiction.
Thirty-six states now administer
teacher certification tests. Twenty-
six states require admissions tests
and 18 states require teachers to pass


both
tests.


admissions and certification


Although some states with testing
programs do not collect and report
passing rate information, the survey
said the passing rates on certification
tests range from a low of 69 percent in
Delaware to a high of 97 percent in
Kansas.
On admissions tests, passing rates
range from a low of 58 percent inr
Colorado to a high of 95 percent in
Nevada.


IRS 'pays visit' to Redd Foxx


LAS VEGAS, Nev. (UPI) - The
Internal Revenue Service seized
actor-comedian Redd Foxx's home,
furniture and a number of vehicles
Tuesday for his alleged failure to pay
income taxes from 1983 to 1986.
The IRS filed liens on Foxx's
property totaling $755,166.21, but
contended that the entertainer owes
considerably more because of
penalties and accumulated interest
on his unpaid taxes.
Foxx lives in Las Vegas, where his
comedy routine has become a staple
of the nighttime entertainment
circuit. He is most widely known for
his role as Fred Sanford in TV's
"Sanford and Son," which ran on
NBC from 1972 through 1978. He
currently co-stars in the Eddie
Murphy movie "Harlem Nights"
with Richard Pryor and Danny
Aiello.
Prince Spencer, Foxx's agent, said
at least 17 IRS agents showed up at
the entertainer's home, located in a
high-priced area four miles east of the
Las Vegas Strip Tuesday morning.
They gave Foxx two minutes to open
the door, and started hauling away
contents, he said.
"They had one of those big car
vans that is used to transport cars
cross country, and they hauled away
five, six or seven vehicles," said
Spencer. "It was heartbreaking to
watch. They took the piano, the
guitar, ukuleles, the furniture. The
living room was cleaned out when I
left."
The IRS also cleaned out Foxx's
bank accounts at Valley Bank,
Spencer said.
In 1983, Foxx was forced to sell off
several other homes, including some
in Los Angeles, after declaring
bankruptcy, Robert Giannangeli, a
spokesman for the IRS in Los
Angeles, said.
At that time, Foxx also owed
money to the IRS but satisfied at
least part of the debt through the sale
of property. The IRS, however, was
unable to collect on unpaid income
taxes for the following years because
Foxx had filed for bankruptcy
protection.
In his current run-in with the IRS,
liens against his home were filed with
the county assessor on Nov. 22,
Giannangeli said.

Joint air acc
WASHINGTON, (Reuter) -A
top official of the aircraft industry
called on the Defense Department
Tuesday to stop blocking dual use
of military airbases as a way to
ease growing congestion at
commercial airports.
Max Bleck, president of the
Beech Aircraft Corp., told a
meeting of the Washington Aero
Club that forecasts estimate the
demand for air travel will double
in the next 10 years.
Bleck, also president of the
General Aviation Manufacturers
Association, said if capacity was
not increased there could be
attempts to ration the use of the
country's existing commercial
airports.
The association is the trade
group for makers of commuter,
private and corporate aircraft.
Bleck said a recent Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA)
study cited 77 locations for
possible joint use.


Court Judge John LaCava said of
Frederick Sannicandro, 38.
Sannicandro died six hours after
he was shot in the abdomen by his
friend, Frank Zollbrecht, 45, as they
were working in a Yonkers bakery
last year.
While he was being wheeled into


ress proposed
He added there was already
joint use at more than 20 military
bases and that 130 civilian airports
had substantial military
operations.
Bleck said the new airfields
scheduled to be closed under a
Pentagon-Congressional agree-
ment this year should be
considered for civilian use.
"Let's not let developers turn
them into shopping malls, jails or
landfill sites," he said.
Bleck said the industry,
Congress, Transportation
Secretary Samuel Skinner, FAA
Administrator James Busey
backed joint use, "so why don't we
have it?"
"Simply because it is too easy
for the military to'just say no, "he
said.
Bleck called on President Bush
to direct the secretaries of defense
and transportation to work out a
plan to use non-strategic military
airfields for commercial use.


surgery, detectives and an attending
physician questioned Sannicandro
and asked him to respond with one
blink for "yes" and two blinks for
"no."
Sannicandro blinked "yes" when
asked if Zollbrecht had shot him and
"no" when asked if the shooting was
accidental, according to trial
testimony.
He could not speak because he had
a breathing tube in his throat.
Zollbrecht had a history of alcohol
abuse, according to testimony.
During drunken horseplay, he got a
gun his boss had hidden and shot
Sannicandro.
The defense maintained that
Sannicandro's deathbed testimony
should not have been allowed
because Sannicandro also was
drunk.
Zollbrecht, convicted of criminally
negligent homicide, could have been
sentenced to four years in prison.
Zollbrecht's lawyer, Anthony
Morosco, said his client had been
traumatized at age 7 by the death of
an older brother. "He's a good person
who has suffered a series of great
tragedies in his life," Morosco said.
A tearful Zollbrecht told the judge,
"I would never hurt Freddy. I'm
sorry for what happened. What can I
say? I'm sorry I touched the gun. "
LaCava ordered that Zollbrecht
spend five years on probation after
his prison term, do 1,000 hours of
community service and get treatment
for his drinking and any
psychological problems.

War polarizes Salvadoran right, left


MEXICO CITY, Mexico (Reuter)
- Two weeks of bloody conflict has
shown there is no military solution
for El Salvador but analysts say
leftist guerrillas and the right-wing
government must overcome hard-
liners within their own ranks if they
are to begin a serious dialogue.
The heavy fighting and political
killings this month have underlined
the polarization in this small Central
American nation.
Analysts say that after 10 years of
war, negotiation is the only solution
- but a solution made difficult by
extremists on the right and left who
seem intent on continuing the
repression and the bloodbath.
"The only possibility is
negotiation," said one Latin
American diplomat. "Without
negotiation, the killing will continue
until who knows when."
At least 1,300 people have died
since the rebel offensive concentrated
around the capital began this month,
the fiercest fighting in a 10-year war
that has claimed 70,000 lives.
The fighting has subsided, but the
bloodied country faces an impasse,


which analysts said is discouragingly
similar to the situation after the
rebels' failed 1981 "final offensive."
President Alfredo Cristiani late
last week rejected a cease-fire call by
the Farabundo Marti National
Liberation Front (FMLN) and
announced stringent new emergency
measures against "subversion."
Analysts and some Salvadorans
say hard-liners on both sides seem
bent on continuing the violence.
"They all speak of peace, but none
of them want to stop making war,"
said a resident of a poor
neighborhood on the outskirts of
San Salvador that was bombarded in
the rebel offensive that began Nov.
11.
The FMLN offensive was intended
as a show of force to strengthen its
position in peace talks, which the
rebels cut off after a car bomb killed
10 leftist trade union activists.
The dramatic developments in
Eastern Europe have also changed
the context of the Salvadoran war,
reducing East-West tensions and
strengthening international pressure
for reconciliation, Mexican analysts


RP nabs two opponents


PANAMA CITY, Panama (UPI)
- Panamanian intelligence officers
arrested two top-ranking opposition
figures at Panama's Omar Torrijos
International Airport upon their
return from the United States,
opposition sources said.
Panamanian authorities Monday
arrested Guillermo Cochez, vice
president of the Christian
Democratic Party, and Francisco
Artola, a trusted adviser of former
opposition presidential candidate
Guillermo Endara.
"I am very worried that Cochez
and Artola will be submitted to the
physical and psychological torture
that other opposition leaders in
similar situations have been
submitted to recently," Ricardo
Arias Calderon, a former opposition
vice presidential candidate, told
United Press International in a
telephone interview.
"Both returned to the country on
Eastern Flight 987 after representing
Panama's democratic opposition in
conversations with the foreign
ministers who participated in the last
General Assembly of the OAS, held
in Washington, from the 13th to the


18th of this month," a statement
issued by opposition leaders said.
Government authorities have not
confirmed the arrests, but Arias
Calderon said the pair was detained
in front of members of the Vatican
Embassy in Panama, as well as
representatives from the German,
Spanish, French and Venezuelan
embassies and the Organization of
American States.
Since the aborted Oct. 3 coup
attempt to oust strongman Manuel
Antonio Noriega, Panamanian
authorities have detained at least
three other opposition leaders at the
airport, including Guillermo
Marquez Amado, Roberto
Arosemena and Mario Galindo. The
three said Panamanian authorities
interrogated and tortured them.
G-2 officials detained two of
Endara's assistants, Miguel Batista
and Ivan Mojica, Nov. 19 on
unspecified charges. Opposition
sources said the two still have not
been released. Endara, who kept a
low profile since the failed coup
attempt, went into hiding after his
two assistants were arrested.


said.
Closer to home, Nicaragua
remains sympathetic to the
guerrillas, but the Sandinistas' hands
are virtually tied by regional peace
accords.
That leaves Cuba, the self-declared
outpost of Marxist- Leninism, "as
practically the only (ally)
remaining," said an FMLN source in
Mexico. "But the island can only give
us moral support."
An FMLN command issued last
week addressed the need for talks to
break the stalemate but not all the
rebels seemed to share the sentiment.
"We declare our readiness to
accept an immediate ceasefire under
U.N. verification in response to the
demands of political, social and
religious forces of the Salvadorean
nation and the international
community," it said.
The text omitted an appeal -
included in a version released only a
few hours earlier - to the armed
forces to sit down to a dialogue. The
revision reflected in part a long-
running debate within the FMLN
over negotiations.
The second "definitive"
communique repeated the readiness
to discuss a cease-fire but only
demanded that the army "not place
obstacles" in the path to serious
negotiations.
Rebel sources in Mexico
acknowledged the internal debate
but characterized it as a part of
devising a strategy to end the war.
The divisions already existed in
mid-September when the rebels


proposed a series of military and
political reforms in their first talks
with the Cristiani government. But in
this month's offensive, they burst
into the open.
The typical hit and run tactics of
guerrilla war yielded to assaults by
urban commandos, the most radical
sector of the rebel front.
Their idea was to spark an
insurrection and launch a "final
offensive." The vision clashed with
that of the guerrilla command, who
spoke of the need for dialogue and a
balance of forces.
A similar process was observed on
the government's side. The shocking
murder of six Jesuit priests,
apparently by death squads, was a
small boost to the more moderate
rightists, including Cristiani.
But the hard-liners, notably the
group surrounding ARENA party
founder Roberto D'Aubuisson,
dismissed the rebels' peace initiatives
as publicity ploys.
Entrenched in the armed forces,
the hawks did not acknowledge a
military stalemate. Victory over the
left, they said, was merely a matter of
time.
Cristiani seemed to have backed
the hawks' preference for combat
over conciliation during the recent
offensive.
But for the rebel command, the
hope is that the rift in the heart of the
military could open a crack in what
had been the armed forces united
front against "subversion," at least a
crack large enough for the idea of
peace to filter through.

Arms-ladenplanefromNicaraguan subsidiary?


MANAGUA, Nicaragua (Reuter)
- A Nicaraguan company once
operated an aircraft with the same
registration as one which El Salvador
claims crashed Saturday while
running arms to leftist guerrillas, two
employees said Monday.
El Salvador's government broke
all relations with Nicaragua Sunday,
accusing it of sending sophisticated
anti-aircraft missiles to rebels waging
a major offensive.
A current and a former employee
of Air Transport Services (SETA)
said the Nicaraguan company had
formerly operated a Cessna 310
aircraft with the registration
YNBYK but handed it over to
Nicaragua's state-run National
Development Bank about three
months ago.
A manager of the company


initially said it had once operated an
aircraft of that registration number
but later denied the company had
anything to do with the plane.
The Salvadoran army said
Saturday that a Cessna 310 packed
with missiles for the guerrillas had
crashed in the east of the country.
Three crew members died on impact
and a fourth committed suicide,
according to a military spokesman.
Salvadoran officials said the
plane's registration was YNBYK and
that documents indicated it belonged
to SETA.
Nicaraguan officials have so far
not responded to the allegations. In
the past, Nicaragua has repeatedly
denied U.S. and Salvadoran charges
that it supplied arms to the rebel
Farabundo Marti National
Liberation Front (FMLN).


SETA is a subsidiary of
Nicaragua's state-run airline
Aeronica. An advertisement on the
window of its office at Managua
airport says it operates Cessna 310
and Navajo aircraft and offers flights
in Central America, Mexico and
Panama.
Areli Gonzalez, a secretary at
SETA's offices, said the company
had once operated a Cessna with the
registration YNBYK.
"The plane went back to the
National Development Bank two or
three months ago," she told Reuters.
The National Development Bank is a
state-owned bank specializing in
loans to farmers.
Ana Romero, a former secretary
with the company, also said SETA
had operated an aircraft of that
registration until three months ago


when it was transferred to the bank.
Roberto Mercado, a manager at
Aeronica airlines responsible for
SETA, said when contacted by
telephone that a plane with that
number had once belonged to SETA
but no longer did.
However, in a later meeting, he
said he had made a mistake over the
registration number and that SETA
had in fact never operated the
aircraft.
"All our planes are in the hangars.
None of our planes are out," he said,
adding that he was surprised at
Salvadoran allegations that SETA
documents were found in the
aircraft.
Officials of the National
Development Bank were not
immediately available for comment.

Lakers on top in NBA


INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) -
This is the new era for the Los
Angeles Lakers, and not only are
they surviving, they are thriving.
Playing their first season without
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who joined
them in 1975, the Lakers have won 10
of their 11 games.
"Kareem is a guy you can't replace,
but you have to do other things,"
Magic Johnson said after a 132-112
victory Sunday night over the San
Antonio Spurs, the only team to beat
the Lakers.
"We're not thinking about
Kareem. What we've got to do is win
with the guys in this lockerroom.
We're just trying to get ourselves
together, get better and better.
"With Kareem, we knew we could
sit back on rely on him and then win
it at the end. Now we have to play
every minute, scrapping and
scraping."
As usual, Johnson is leading the
way as the Lakers seek their third
NBA championship in four seasons.
Not only is he playing his point-
guard spot, he's playing the off guard
position. And small forward. And
power forward. And sometimes, he
up as the center.
Coach Pat Riley actually has-been
slowly moving Johnson into a more
versatile role over the past couple of


years, as Abdul-Jabbar, in his 40s
and near retirement, became a less
dominating player.
Johnson smiled as he admitted he
sometimes forgets where he is
supposed to be on the court, since
he's being used in every position at
one time or another.
"I know the plays, but I don't know
where to go from each position right
now," he said after a 24-point 10-
assist performance against the Spurs.
"I think in another 10 or 15 games, Ill
be ready to play all five of them."
Riley, calling the victory over the
Spurs his team's "best game by far" of
the young season, said the Lakers still
miss Abdul-Jabbar.
"I will always believe that we will
miss a great, great center, but we have
to make up for it by doing other
things," Riley said, adding that he
didn't expect the Lakers to get off to
such a fast start this season - before
going 10-1, they won all eight of their
preseason games.
"I'm a little surprised," Riley said.
"We've got new players and a
different philosophy."
Riley also said that the win over
the Spurs, who had beaten the Lakers
106-98 in the second game of the
season, at San Antonio on Nov. 4,
was the first time that the new players
and philosophy really came together.


NBA fastfacts, quotes, stars


STARS
Monday Karl Malone, Jazz,
scored 22 points and grabbed 17
rebounds as Utah defeated New
Jersey 105-68. Malone was 9-for-13
from the field as the Nets dropped
their eighth straight game.
Detlef Schrempf, Pacers, scored 21
points, including 10 in the fourth
quarter, as Indiana rallied to beat
Milwaukee 101-97. Schrempf's three-
point play with 22 seconds left gave
the Pacers a 99-97 lead.
SPEAKING
"I've always said that out of 82
games you can take a couple and
throw them out. This was one of
them. I sure as heck didn't give up
golf and fishing to spend nights like
this." - New Jersey coach Bill Fitch,
after watching the Nets establish a
franchise low for points in game in a
105-68 loss at Utah on Monday.
SWISH
New York forward Kenny Walker


sank all three of his field goals and all
four free throws in the Knicks' 119-
108 defeat of Charlotte on Monday.
STATS
New York's 119-108 victory over
Charlotte on Monday gave the
Knicks a 6-0 record at Madison
Square Garden. The Knicks are the
only Eastern Conference team
unbeaten at home.
SWINGS
New Jersey was just 25 of 98 from
the field - a league season-low .255
- but made all 17 of its free throws in
a 105-68 loss at Utah on Monday.
The previous low was .309 also by
New Jersey against Miami on Nov. 7.
SLOPPY
Utah forwards Karl Malone and
Theodore "Blue" Edwards combined
for 17 of the Jazz' 29 turnovers
Monday. Malone had 10 and
Edwards seven. Despite the miscues,
Utah routed New Jersey 105-68.


Despite the loss of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson has led the Los
Angeles Lakers to the league's best record. (AP Laserphoto)


Cavaliers rally past Bullets \


RICHFIELD, Ohio (AP) -
Randolph Keys sank a short half-
hook shot with three seconds left,
capping Cleveland's rally from a
16-point third-quarter deficit and
giving the Cavaliers a 92-91 NBA
victory over the Washington
Bullets on Tuesday night.
Cleveland ended a two-game
losing streak after a five-game
winning streak. The Bullets have
lost seven straight on the road.
The Cavaliers' injury-ravaged
starting lineup shot 1-for-15 in the
first half as Washington built a 49-
37 halftime lead behind Bernard
King's 12 points. The Bullets
rushed to a 16-2 lead at the start of
the game.
Washington widened its lead to
53-37 early in the second half
before consecutive 3-pointers by
Craig Ehlo and Steve Kerr started
Cleveland's comeback.
The Cavaliers trailed by seven
after three quarters, then scored


the first 12 points of the fourth
quarter - six by rookie Chucky
Brown - for a five-point lead.
Neither team led by more than five
thereafter.
Washington led 91-88 on a pair
of free throws by John Williams
with 1:01 to play but the Cavaliers'
John "Hot Rod" Williams
answered with two free throws
with 43 seconds left to get
Cleveland within one.
Kerr got the ball back for the
Cavaliers with six seconds to play,
calling a timeout as he fell out of
bounds while grabbing the
rebound of a missed Washington
shot. Keys it the winning shot
from the left baseline while
surrounded by defenders. King's
3-point attempt at the buzzer hit
the rim.
Ehlo led Cleveland with 25.
points and Brown scored 18. Jeff
Malone had 20 and King scored
18, none in the fourth quarter.


Orangemen take over No. 1 in college basketball


by The Associated Press

Syracuse, third in preseason, took
the top spot in the college basketball
poll Monday, while Kansas,
unranked but triumphant over Nos. 1
and 2, vaulted to fourth in the first
balloting of the regular season.
The Orangemen, who opened their
season Monday night at home
against Rutgers, received 23 first-
place votes and 1,453 points from the
nationwide panel of sports writers
md broadcasters to edge Arizona (1-
0) for the top spot by 11 points.
Eight teams received first-place
votes in a poll scrambled by Kansas'
toppling of No. 1 UNLV, No. 2
Louisiana State and No. 25 St.
John's on the way to the preseason
NIT title.
Syracuse last held the No. 1


ranking in the 1987-88 preseason poll.
Arizona, which beat defending
national champion Michigan in the
Tipoff Classic, received 10 first-place
votes and had 31 more points than
Georgetown (2-0) which moved from
fifth to third and received nine No. 1
votes.
Kansas (4-0) was on top of 16
ballots and had 1,266 points to edge
fellow Big Eight member Missouri,
champion of the Maui Classic. The
Tigers had 1,248 points, just one
more than UNLV (3-1), which
finished third in the NIT after being
handled easily by Kansas in the
semifinals.
The lone switch means three
conferences still have four teams in
the Top 25.
Kansas joins Missouri, Oklahoma
and Oklahoma State as the Big Eight


members in the Top 25. The Big East
has Syracuse, Georgetown,
Pittsburgh and St. John's, while the
Atlantic Coast Conference has Duke,
North Carolina, Georgia Tech and
North Carolina State.
The Big Ten now has three -
Illinois, Michigan and Indiana -
with Minnesota's departure.
Duke (1-0) was seventh with one
first-place vote and 1,089 points and
was followed in the Top Ten by
Illinois, which has yet to play, LSU
(1-1), which was still No. 1 on one
ballot, and Michigan (0-1).
Arkansas (2-0), ninth in preseason,
had two first-place votes to lead the
Second Ten. North Carolina, which
lost to Missouri in the title game in
Maui, fell from seventh to 12th and
still had one first-place vote.
It was just the second time in the


last 74 polls - starting in the 1984-85
season - that the Tar Heels were not
ranked in the Top 10. They have been
in the rankings every week since Jan.
4, 1983.
Louisville (2-1), third at Maui, was
13th, followed by Indiana, UCLA,
Temple, Oklahoma, Pittsburgh,
Notre Dame and St. John's. Georgia
Tech was 21st and Memphis State,
Oklahoma State, Florida and North
Carolina State rounded out the Top
25.
Kansas was the only newcomer to
the poll and Minnesota, ranked 20th,
but a loser to Cincinnati in its opener,
dropped out of the rankings.
Kansas' jump was the best of any
unranked team since Alabama-
Birmingham rose to 13th in the first
regular-season poll of the 1984-85
season.

No matter what happens on the
court, Lendl will retain the top spot
in the computer rankings, something
both he and Becker believe is wrong.
"The Grand Slam is the most
important thing," Becker said
Monday. "And I've won two of them
and was in the semifinals at one. I
beat Ivan in two of them.
"To me, it's clear" who's No. 1.
Becker won Wimbledon for the
third time and his first U.S. Open in
1989. He ousted Lendl in the
semifinals at Wimbledon and beat
him in the U.S. Open title match.
"If Boris won this tournament,
very clearly he would be No. 1 in my
mind and he would be No. 1 in your
mind," said Lendl, who has won 10
titles this year. "The question is if he
doesn't win and I win, what is going
to happen then?
The year-ending, eight-player
tournament Madison Square Garden
begins Tuesday night. Following
four nights of round-robin play, the
semifinals will be held Saturday
afternoon and the final on Sunday.
"Normally I would say that he
should be considered the best player
because he won Wimbledon and the
U.S. Open, which are the two biggest
tournaments.
"On the other hand, in '86 I won
two Grand Slam tournaments and he
won one, and he won more
tournaments during the year than I
did. I kept reading articles saying if
he won the Masters, he should be No.

UTAH - Fired Jim Fassel,
head football coach.


SUWANEE, Ga. (AP) - Atlanta
Falcons head coach Marion
Campbell announced his retirement
Tuesday, saying he wants to give the
last-place team a chance "to get on
with the future." Offensive coach Jim
Hanifan, a former NFL head coach,
was named interim coach.
"I have chosen this avenue to clear
the picture for the ownership to get
on with the future of their franchise,"
Campbell said in a statement released
from the NFL club's headquarters.
"At the present time, I am just
announcing my retirement and I have
no plans as to my future concerns."
The Falcons are 3-9, last in the NFC
West.
Hanifan, named interim coach an
hour after Campbell's announce-
ment, was the Falcons' assistant head
coach for offense. He was head coach
of the St. Louis Cardinals from 1980-
85, compiling a 39-49 record during
that period.
Campbell was hired to coach the
team for a second time in 1987, after
the firing of head coach Dan
Henning. Campbeli compiled an 11-
32 record in the past 2 1/2 seasons.
Campbell also was head coach of
the Falcons from 1974-1976 and
coached the Philadelphia Eagles
from 1983-85. His career record as an
NFL head coach is 34-80-1.
Rumors of Campbell's departure
began swirling in recent weeks as the
Falcons lost five of their last six
games.
Campbell, 60, has recorded his
greatest success in the NFL as a
defensive coach, with the Minnesota
Vikings, the Los Angeles Rams, the
Eagles and the Falcons. He was
defensive coordinator for
Philadelphia's 1980 Super Bowl

While Becker is the defending
champion, Lendl has reached the
final at the last nine Masters, winning
five, two more than John McEnroe,
who also is in the field.
And, like Lendl, McEnroe once
ruled as the world's top-ranked
player. Perhaps not surprisingly,
Lendl and McEnroe aren't as
enamored with the computer ranking
as Becker, who never has been higher
than No. 2.

before and I have other priorities in
my career right now," Lendl said.
Third-ranked Stefan Edberg of
Sweden and Andre Agassi battle to
begin the tournament, followed by
Lendl against French Open
champion Michael Chang and
Becker against Brad Gilbert.
On Wednesday, McEnroe will play
Aaron Krickstein, Becker meets
Agassi and Edberg takes on Gilbert.
Thursday's matches will pit Lendl
against Krickstein, McEnroe against
Chang and Agassi against Gilbert,
while Edberg plays Becker, Lendl

undefeated would pocket $315,000.


team.
His departure came after two
tough developments in the last week:
the death of a Falcons player and a
27-7 loss to the New York Jets.


"Quite frankly, it's
difficult for me to talk to
you at great length"
Marion Campbell


"That was a tough loss, without
question," Campbell said Monday at
his weekly news conference, referring
to Sunday's trouncing by the Jets.
The private service for the team
was held in memory of rookie tackle
Ralph Norwood, who died in an
automobile accident about eight
miles south of the Suwanee training
complex sometime Thursday night
or early Friday morning.
"Quite frankly, following the
service this morning, it's difficult for
me to sit here and talk with you at any
great length," Campbell said
Monday, declining to discuss
football as usual.
Norwood, a college star at
Louisiana State, was alone in his car
when it left a road near a shopping
mall, rolled down an embankment
and slammed into a tree.
A wake and services for Norwood
were held Monday night at the
Franklin Avenue Baptist Church in '
his hometown of New Orleans, with
burial this morning.
Norwood was the second Atlanta
player to die during a season in the
last two years. Last year, David
Croudip died of a cocaine overdose
the night after a game.

Flyers top Pens, 6-3

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Ilkka
Sinisalo and Mark Howe scored
twice and Mike Bullard had his
300th NHL goal Tuesday night as
the Philadelphia Flyers beat the
Pittsburgh Penguins 6-3.
The Flyers scored four goals on
17 shots in the first period to chase
goalie Wendell Young, who was
starting his ninth consecutive
game.
Sinisalo converted Bullard's
pass at 8:01 before Pittsburgh's
Kevin Stevens wristed a 50-foot
shot past goalie Ken Wregget at
9:02.
Bullard broke the tie with his
12th on a power play at 9:44. He
held Murray Craven's pass in the
slot and placed the shot over
Young's shoulder.
Sinisalo got his ninth at 17:52
and Howe beat Young with a long
slapshot at 19:08 for a power-play
goal.
John Cullen scored on a
Pittsburgh power play at 1:46 of
the second period when he
deflected Jim Johnson's shot from
the point.
Howe scored shorthanded at
17:30, taking Rick Tocchet's pass
on a 2-on-1 break. It was Howe's
first two-goal game since Feb. 23,
1988 at Detroit.
Tocchet and Pittsburgh's Paul
Coffey scored in the third period.
Mario Lemieux had the second
assist on Cullen's and Coffey's
goals to extend his point-scoring
streak to 13 games, longest in the
NHL this season.
In 45 career games against the
Penguins, Sinisalo has 24 goals
and 45 points.

Controversial death row inmate set to die


ANGOLA, La. (AP) - Gov.
Buddy Roemer Tuesday denied
clemency for a retarded man
scheduled to go to the electric chair
Thursday for murdering a state
trooper at 17.
Roemer rejected the recommenda-
tion of the Louisiana Pardon Board,
which voted 3-2 Monday that he
commute Dalton Prejean's sentence
to life in prisorin.
The governor's announcement
came minutes after the 5th U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals in New
Orleans turned down an appeal from
Prejean, now 30.
Louisiana's longest-serving death
row inmate is scheduled to die shortly
after midnight on Thursday for the
1977 slaying of Trooper Donald
Cleveland. Prejean has been on death
row for nearly 12 years.
The U.S. Supreme helped clear the
way for his execution in July when it
ruled in separate cases that the
Constitution's ban on cruel and
unusual punishment does not bar the
execution of murderers who are
retarded or were juveniles when they
killed.
In Virginia and Alabama, two
killers described respectively as
borderline retarded and mildly
retarded were put to death in August
and July after the ruling.
Yvonne Foreman, chairman of the


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (UPI) -
A federal jury that acquitted three
defendants of trying to topple the
government by staging bombings
and bank robberies failed Tuesday to
decide on five remaining counts
usually reserved for organized crime
cases.
During its 20th day of deliberating
in the longest criminal trial in
Massachusetts history, the jury
remained deadlocked on five counts
against Raymond "Luc" Levasseur,
43, his wife, Patricia Helen Gros
Levasseur, 40, and Richard
Williams, 42.


Federal


prosecutors


contend the three
defendants tried to topple
the federal government.

All three were acquitted Monday
of charges of seditious conspiracy,
and Patricia Levasseur was also
found innocent of racketeering.
The jurors were split on
racketeering charges against
Raymond Levasseur and Williams,
and racketeering conspiracy counts
against all three. Racketeering and
racketeering conspiracy charges are
usually brought in organized crime
cases.
Rather than declaring a mistrial,
U.S. District Judge William Young
ordered the jury of 11 women and
one man to resume deliberations
Wednesday morning. The trial began
Jan. 10 and has already cost
taxpayers more than $10 million in
legal, security and transportation
costs, according to court estimates.
Federal prosecutors contend the
three defendants tried to topple the
federal government through an eight-
year spree of bombings and bank
holdups in Massachusetts, Maine,
Vermont, New York, Connecticut
and Virginia, obtaining nearly
$900,000 dating back to 1976.


pardon board, said the majority
voted for clemency based on
testimony that Prejean had been
abused as a child, that he probably
suffered some brain damage as a.
child and that he had a good prison
record and showed remorse.
The appeals argued that Prejean,
who is black, had an all-white jury
and an ineffective court-appointed
lawyer. The jury was never told that
he was abused as a child, that he is
mildly retarded or that he was
drinking heavily the night of the
murder.
Six months before the killing,
Prejean was released from a reform
school to which he had been sent for
killing a taxi driver at age 14.
Prejean has expressed his regrets
to the family of the trooper he shot
twice in the face with a .38-caliber
pistol after a traffic stop.
"I ask them not to hate me for all of
their life," said Prejean, who was
shackled during his testimony before
the board at the state prison. "That
same hate can destroy them."
David Baer, a psychiatrist at the
University of Massachusetts School
of Medicine, said he examined
Prejean in 1984 and believes that
while Prejean knows right from
wrong, apparent brain damage
makes it difficult for him to
deliberate when in a violent mood


The seditious conspiracy charge,
of which all three were cleared, dates
back to the Civil War, when it was
used to try Confederates accused of
spying on Union activities. The 1985
conviction in Chicago of three
Puerto Rican "independentistas"
accused of bombing military bases
marked the last time anyone was
found guilty under the law.
Raymond Levasseur an'd
Williams, both self-avowed
revolutionaries, already are serving
45-year prison sentences forbombings
in the New York City area. Patricia
Levasseur, who has said she is not a
revolutionary, has served 3 1/2 years
in prison for a conviction for
harboring a fugitive, her husband,
and using a false identification card.
The Levasseurs and Williams were
accused of bombing the Suffolk
County courthouse in Boston on
April 22, 1976, and 17 other sites,
including military contractors.
Raymond Levasseur and Williams
were members of the Sam Melville-
Jonathan Jackson Unit, and were
charged in a series of bank robberies
from Maine to Virginia allegedly
staged to finance their campaign.
They originally were to be tried in
Boston, but the case was moved to
Springfield because of pretrial
publicity and the government's
failure to provide space for the
defense to work out its strategy.
Originally called the Ohio 7 -
named for the state where several
group members were captured -
only three were brought to trial this
year.
The government dropped charges
against two members, Thomas
Manning and Jaan Karl Laaman,
because of long prison sentences they
already faced. Manning's wife,
Carol, pleaded guilty to the charges,
and charges are still pending against
Laaman's wife, Barbara Curzi-
Laaman.


If allowed to live, Prejean could be
the subject of tests that might help
others with similar brain problems to
avoid violence, Baer said.
"His death would teach us
absolutely nothing," he said.
David Smith, father of the


trooper's widow and spokesman for
the family, said Cleveland's relatives
wanted justice, not revenge.
. "If we're going to have a death
penalty, let's use it. If we don't want
it, let's do away with it. But let's don't
drag these things out 12 years."

Bush, who leaves Thursday for a
weekend summit with Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev in the
Mediterranean, told the delegation,
"I want to know how this goes."
The president asked the delegation
to try to reach him with news while he
is at the summit. He said, "It would

Congress passed the aid package
earlier this month during a U.S.
visit by Solidarity founder Lech
Walesa, the Polish electrician who
sparked an explosion of democracy
in Eastern Europe.
Bush had initially proposed a $350


million, three-year program for
Hungary and financially troubled
Poland. But Congress, with Bush's
approval, boosted the figure to $938
million.
In a two-page statement Tuesday,
Bush said: "Congress has crafted a
bill responsive to my requests, as well
as providing a number of additional
programs, all designed to support
our national goal: to help the cause of
political and economic freedom in
Poland and Hungary."
Included in the package is medical
aid, private enterprise funds to help
develop private businesses in the two
countries, the first use of Peace Corps
workers in the two nations, and $125
million for food assistance.
