Jail door
allows for
Two burglars escaped from jail because
a door installer didn't know which end
was up.
The new rear door at the Perry County
Jail .had been hung upside down, so the
lock didn't work.
Two inmates took advantage of the
goof early yesterday, using a piece of a
light fixture to open the latch, Sheriff
Carlos Herring said.
"This is simply the fault of the in-
staller," Herring said. "There's nothing
for me to do now but get another welder
down here and turn the thing back over."
Jailers hadn't realized the door was
upside down because the lock had a
metal block around it to prevent people
from jimmying it, the sheriff said.

"Somewhere along the line I believe
(the local chapter) started losing the
focus of what a fraternity is," said Terry
Landes, director of Greek Life at the
University. "I would believe (this is)
headquarters' and alums' way of put-
ting them back on track."
A letter sent by the national organi-
zation to members over winter break
asked the chapter to "abide by the things
that nationals thinks fraternities should
be doing," said ZBT member Brian
Last night, however, some members
claimed the chapterhas no internal prob-
Several menmbrs said a newly added
security guard isa result of past break-
ins. The guard was "imposed" by the
national organization, Batts said.
The addition of a house father, at the
request of the national organization,
wi II help regulate the house and enforce
rules, said ZBT member Ross Bernard.
Members also said problems with
chapters at other universities have
prompted national review.
"Reorganization is another word for
preservation," said Jared Silver, a ZBT
brother. "Methods are being taken to
ensure that the fate of this ZBT chapter
is not the same of other chapters."
"They are taking the problems with
other schools and just making sure we
don't have the same problems," Ber-
nard said. "The problems (here) are
totally being blown out of proportion."
Other members recognized the po-
tential value of national intervention.
"The core of the house is weak," said
ZBT member Steve Fefferman. "t needs
to strengthen and nationals is helping to
do that."
It is not unusual for national frater-
nity organizations to make similar sug-
gestions and demands of their chapters,
Landes said.
"The Greek system is cleaning itself
up. This is not an uncommon thing," he
The closing of ZBT chapters and
other fraternities across the county has
prompted national concerns about the
structures of fraternities, several mem-
bers said.
ZBT member Lawrence Brin saidpre-
serving fraternities will require height-
ened coordination between the house
members, administration and trustees.

Landes said later in the process he
will work with house members to de-
velop leadership, scholarship and the
understanding of an overall "big pic-
ture of what a fraternity is."
Sheehan said the organization's,
caution in this situation may stem in
part from past lawsuits in which a
national fraternity is "held respon-
sible for the drinking habits at the
local fraternity."

"We could balance the budget, liter-
ally, in 15 minutes tomorrow afternoon
and the Congressional Budget Office
would say hooray. The financial mar-
kets would say hooray. Interest rates
would drop. The economy would start
to grow. Everything would be fine. And
then we could have an election in 1996
about whether the American people
agreed with their view" of spending
restraints on programs such as Medi-
care, he said.
Clinton, waving a letter from the
Congressional Budget Office certify-
ing his last proposal met the require-
ments for a seven-year balanced budget
plan, reiterated the message of the day
from the White House.
The argument, he said, was not about
balancing the budget, on which every-

NASA using heaters
to prevent disaster at
shuttle launch today
ing to prevent arepeat of the Challenger
disaster, NASA used heaters to warm
space shuttle Endeavour for liftoff to-
day in the early morning cold.
NASA expected it to be 46 degrees for
Endeavour's 4:18a.m. launch on a satel-
lite-retrieval mission. That would prob-
ably be warm enough under the rules
established after the 1986 catastrophe.
The temperature was 36 degrees, the
coldest ever for a shuttle launch, when
Challenger exploded 10 years ago this
month, killing all seven crew members.
Investigators found the cold stiffened
the 0-rings in the shuttle's booster rock-
ets, allowing hot gas to seep out.
Since then, NASA has adopted a for-
mula involving low temperature, wind
and humidity to determine whether it is
safe to launch. Heaters were added to
protect the joints and O-ring seals in the
Shuttle operations director Bob Sieck
said the main concern is ice buildup on

Court sides with govt. on census debate
WASHINGTON - After the Supreme Court heard arguments yesterday over
the commerce secretary's refusal to adjust 1990 census figures to compensate for
the undercounting of racial minorities, the justices sided with the federal govern-
Chief Justice William Rehnquist said the Constitution gives Congress power for
the census and that Congress has delegated discretion to the Commerce Departmen
New York and several other cities have challenged the department's decisi
not to increase some cities' 1990 population counts. Robert Rifkind, an attorney
for the cities, said the decision deserves more judicial scrutiny because the rights
of uncounted individuals are at issue.
The stakes are high in the case because census figures determine the number of
seats states have in Congress and are critical to the allocation of federal funds.
If the federal government loses, cities and states would likely engage in battles
with each other and the federal government over their representatives in Congress.
The battle over the 1990 census, which is likely to affect the 2000 census,stems
from Commerce Secretary Robert Mosbacher's decision in 1991 not to statisti-
cally adjust the census headcount.
Thedepartment and its Census Bureau acknowledged racial minorities we@
undercounted more than whites.

Endeavour's external fuel tank once it is
filled with 500,000-plus gallons of su-
per-cold liquid gas. Chunks of ice could
break off at liftoff and damage the shuttle.
Six astronauts will retrieve a Japanese
satellite, in orbit for nearly a year. The
crew also will release and retrieve a U.S.
science satellite during the mission.

the celebrated Hotel del Coronado and
a major Democratic fund-raiser for de-

official residence in Bern, Switzerland.
Although no cause of death was a*

for years.

Mitterrand fans bid
farewell to dead
leader at rally
PARIS - Nearly 15 years after a
million ecstatic leftists swarmed to the
Place dela Bastille to celebrate Francois
Mitterrand's election, supporters gath-
ered there again yesterday night for a
final, somber farewell.
Tens ofthousands of mourners, many
bearing roses - the symbol of
Mitterrand's Socialist Party -crowded
together in silence under a light rain at
the Place de la Bastille. Many wept.
"I came to pay a final homage to my
president. I have the impression that
part of France is dying with him," said
Raoul Schiller, 35, his chin trembling
with emotion.
The plaza was filled with Gregorian
chants and other grave music. Over-
head was a huge black-and-white por-
trait of a waving, smiling Mitterrand,
who died Monday at age 79.
"I'm really very sad. Everyone knew
he soon would die, but it's now that I
realize this is the end of an era," said
Annick Bernard, who was at the Bastille
in 1981.

For younger people who grew up
during his reign - the longest for a
French president this century - the
man affectionately called "Uncle" was
the only president they had known, un-
til he retired in May.
Search continues at
Zaire crash scene
KINSHASA, Zaire - A horrible
search was still underway yesterday
amid the rubble of the Somba Zikida
marketplace, where the crash of a cargo
plane Monday killed as many as 350
people. In this chaotic city of six mil
lion,-scavengers were working almo
as hard as rescuers.
Men with axes or long knives climbed
atop the charred remains of the Russian-
made An-32 twin turboprop in quest of
scrap metal. Theypiledup woodenplanks
from the flattened market stalls and be-
gan the trek to their homes.
This is the aftermath of one of the
bloodiest air disasters ever. The cargo
plane crashed on takeoff from a central
airport in the Zairian capital, leavin,
nearly 500 people injured along with
the still-rising number of dead.
