As Baker walked out of the Fed-
eral Building with his mother and his
attorney, Douglas Mullkoff, he spoke
to the public for the first time since his
Feb. 9 arrest.
"I am sorry to have ever used a real
person's name in any of my stories,"
Baker said. "It was a stupid thing to
do, and I have paid for it over the last

Cohn ordered Baker's mother,
Vilma, to take third-party custody of
her son, and told Baker to report to
Pretrial Services once or twice each
week. Cohn also forbade Baker from
entering Ann Arbor.
"Mr. Baker should avoid Ann Ar-
bor except to meet with his lawyer,"
Cohn said. "And he is not allowed to
meet with any student of the Univer-
sity of Michigan or anyone else while
in Ann Arbor.
"He is also not allowed to upload
any information to the Internet, but
may (download) information as he

"The government had said that it
would be bound to whatever the psy-
chological report said," Chadwell
said. "We will not object to the court's
Cohn also asked Vilma Baker to
report "any unusual activities" and
that Baker "keep regular hours at night
in his home in Boardman, Ohio."
The FBI arrestedBaker at his former
attorney's office in Ann Arbor Feb. 9.
He was indicted by a Wayne County
grand jury early the next week on one
federal charge of transmitting athreatto
injure or kidnap a person in interstate or
foreign commerce. The charge stemmed
from Baker's postings to a newsgroup,
alt.sex.stories, and from e-mail corre-
spondence Baker had with an Ontario
man identified as Arthur Gonda.
Two federal judges denied Baker
bail Feb. 10, finding him too danger-
ous for society and a threat to the

sponses only to the topic of his time in
jail, said he is working toward dis-
missing the case before it comes to
trial April 3.
"I don't think this case will go to
trial," Mulkoff said. "I will file a
motion to dismiss this case within the
next few weeks. The Urgency and
pressure to get a motion in is gone
because Jake in now out of jail."
The psychological evaluation
Sommerschield presented to the court
was not available to the public, but
Mullkoff said it came to conclusions
similar to those of two other unoffi-
cial evaluations last month.
"Jake breezed through his latest
psychological exam," Mullkoff said.
"It was consistent with all of the other
evaluations Jake has had."
Baker's mother was jubilant after
the decision, hugging her son and
clinging to him.

pen to write with, and he had nothing
to read. It was hell for him and hell for
us to have to watch him like that.

Baker turned 21 on Thursday while
at Milan, and his mother said he was
in good spirits at the time.
"While we should be singing
'Happy Birthday' and cutting cake
right now, we are optimistic for to-
morrow," she said Thursday night,
the day before Baker's release. "I
reminded him of the Grateful Dead
song in which the line was, I believe,
'I turned 21 in jail.' He laughed at
Baker said he was very happy to
be out of jail.
"It feels very good to be able to go
home," Baker said. "The last month
was definitely not what I was used to."
Hutchison said the family planned
to "get a good dinner," and then make
the drive back to Boardman, Ohio.

Storm cuts off Monterey Peninsula
SAN FRANCISCO - Floods washed out all roads into the Monterey
Peninsula yesterday as waterlogged California struggled to recover from
storms that battered two-thirds of the state.
At least eight people died in five days of flooding, and five more are
missing after driving into a rain-swollen creek when an Interstate 5 bridge
collapsed in central California.
Yesterday was rain-free in most of California. The National Weather Service
said showers are expected again today, but not the downpours of last week.
In Monterey County, thousands of people left their homes overnight as the
Salinas and Pajaro rivers inundated some of the nation's richest farmlands, the
site of John Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath."
The flooding cut off the communities around Monterey, about 100 miles,
south of San Francisco.
"At this point all roads are closed - the Monterey Peninsula is literally
isolated," said county emergency Officer Al Friedrich.
California Highway Patrol officials said roads may remain closed until;*

enrollment on rise
WASHINGTON - The number
of minority students enrolled at U.S.
colleges and the number earning de-
grees continues to inch up, but still lags
behind whites, according to a new study.
The report, to be released today by
the American Council on Education,
brought gloomy predictions from edu-
cators worried that an increasingly
minority American work force will
lack needed training by 2000.
"The overall situation is so dis-
mal, these small gains just do not go
far enough," said Edduardo Padron,
president of the Wolfson campus of
the Miami-Dade Community College,
the nation's largest community col-
lege system and one of the most
The actual number of minorities
going to college rose slightly in 1993
- up 1.3 percent for Blacks and 3.6
percent for Hispanics over 1992.
But because Blacks and Hispanics
also make up a growing percentage of

himself from review
of deal with Iran
JIDDAH, Saudi Arabia - Secre-
tary of State Warren Christopher,
sharply critical of a major American
oil company's lucrative contract with
Iran, said yesterday he had dropped
out of the Clinton administration's
ongoing review of the deal because
Conoco had retained his law firm.
Among the options under consid-
eration by the administration is order-
ing Conoco to abandon the contract to
develop a huge offshore oil field in
the Persian Gulf. The deal, worth about
$1 billion, is with a government whose
"evil hand" is evident everywhere in
the Middle East, Christopher said
before he learned Conoco had hired
O'Melveny & Myers of Los Angeles.
Christopher was chairman of the
firm before he became secretary of
state two years ago and is vested in its
retirement fund. His self-exclusion
from examination of the Conoco deal
removes the administration's most
outspoken critic of the deal and of

topher said Saudi Arabia and five

all young Americans, the proportion
in college remained flat.
Just 33 percent of all 18-to-24-year-
old Black high school graduates and 36
percent of Hispanic graduates enrollee
in college in 1993, compared with nearly
42 percent of whites, the study said.
Experts warned not
to fly in icy weather
NEW YORK - More than 10
years before a commuter plane crashed
in Indiana, some experts were push-
ing the Federal Aviation Administra-
tion to revise its standards for flying
in icy weather, The New York Times
reported yesterday. 0
The National Transportation Safety
Board had been raising questions about
flying in freezing drizzle since 1981,
when it suggested that larger water
droplet sizes were more of a threat than
had been previously suspected. The
FAA responded that it would be "ex-
cessively penalizing and economically
prohibitive" to design airplanes to cope
with "freezing rain, freezing drizzle."
Kuwait, Qatar, the United Arab Emir-
ates and Bahrain, had voiced their
support for his drive for a wider Arab
Israeli peace in the Middle East.
Poverty summit ends
with no solutions
COPENHAGEN, Denmark -
Committing.themselves to a pact on
fighting poverty, world leaders
wrapped up a summit yesterday agree-
ing that misery can lead to violent
social upheaval, but differing on how
to cure it.
The weeklong U.N. gathering,
which brought together 190 countries
and some 120 heads of state, was an
ambitious attempt to pull together
governments and aid groups to set a
common global policy.
"The cry ofmillions ofinfants world-
wide -whose lives are threatened by
hunger should be enough to consolidate.
our resolve," said Malta's prime minis-
ter, Edward Fenech-Adami.
In speeches leading up to the formal
adoption of the declaration, poor coun-
tries accused richer ones of shirking
their duties. Many Third World leaders
also agreed, however, that reforms were,
needed in their own backyards to boost
production and fight corruption.
