NATION/WORLD

Oregon hit with worst flooding in 30 years

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A mountainside
moaned, then gave way in a rush of mud. High-
ways vanished beneath stinking, caramel-col-
ored floodwaters swirling with uprooted trees
and raw sewage. One girl was dead, a woman
was missing, and thousands of bregonians were
driven from their homes.
And the rain kept falling. As the state's worst
flooding in more than three decades threatened
to swamp downtown Portland, sandbags and
concrete highway dividers formed a thin de-
fense yesterday against the wide Willamette
River.
"Water's going everywhere," said Trase Myers,
as he and others hurried to stack 40-pound sand-
bags against abuilding downtown. "I can't believe
the destruction the water has caused."
.In the nation's latest extreme weather in a winter
otextremes, hundreds of roads - including both
of Oregon's cross-state freeways, Interstates 5 and
$ - were closed by high water or mudslides.
Amtrak trains were halted. Gov. John Kitzhaber

declared 14 counties disaster areas.
Amid the deluge, there were water shortages.
Muddy floodwaters contaminated drinking-
water supplies throughout the valley. Portland
and Salem officials urged people to conserve
water. Smaller towns shut down their water
plants completely and told residents to buy
bottled water.
The flooding is the result of a series of storms
that marched in from the Pacific beginning two
weeks ago. The first were cold, piling up snow in
the mountains that form a scenic backdrop to
Portland - the Cascades to the cast, the rolling
Coast Range to the west.
On Monday, a warmer storm stalled over the
state, and the snow started melting, adding to the
record rains - more than five inches a day in
some areas.
Sparkling mountain streams, narrow enough to
jump across two weeks ago, turned monstrous,
tearing through the forest, ripping small bridges
apart.

SNATIONAL REPORT
White House releases Whitewater notes
WASHINGTON - White House aides dealing with Whitewater two years ago
were speculating. Did they dare approach a state bank regulator to "make sure her
story is OK"? It was touchy business, one said- if it's mishandled "we're done."
Yesterday, the discussion came out at a Senate Whitewater Committee hearing.
Months after the committee had asked for them, the White House turned over
handwritten jottings taken by Mark Gearan, who was President Clinton's comm
nications director at the time the meeting was held, on Jan. 7, 1994. A montW
earlier, a Justice Department prosecutor had been appointed to take over the
criminal investigation of Whitewater.
White House lawyer Jane Sherburne told the committee yesterday that the notes
had been hard to locate because Gearan inadvertently took them with him when
he left the White House to run the Peace Corps last September.
One area under discussion in the meeting of presidential aides: first lady Hillary
Rodham Clinton's contact with Arkansas securities commissioner Beverly Bassett
Schaffer about whether the savings and loan at the center of Whitewater could
issue stock.
Schaffer concluded the S&L -represented by Mrs. Clinton's law firm-coui
indeed do so. Schaffer had said during the 1992 presidential campaign she was
pressured by Mrs. Clinton and had only one conversation with her.

Heavy rains in Oregon have forced residents to evacuate.

BUDGET
Continued from Page 1.
million allocation to Wayne State Uni-
versity, a 4.1-percent increase.
Wilbanks said the increases vary across
the state because of "additional adjust-
ments made due to policy considerations"
at each school.
"The proposal gives us an additional
four-tenths of a percent because of the
fact that we provide graduate programs
that cost a lot to deliver," she said. "There
are several schools in the state that are
given funds for programming and ser-
vices that are excessively costly."
Wilbanks said the increase across the
state is in light of Engler's push toward
improving higher education,
"The governor's message (yesterday)
was focused on his continuing dedication
to higher education," Wilbanks said. "He
said very clearly that because of the eco-
nomic picture that the state will be able to
provide more funds to higher education."
University spokesperson Julie
Peterson said the state appropriation may
help the University curb tuition costs.
"When we get a greater allocation it
definitely makes it easier for the adminis-
tration to hold down tuition," Peterson
said. "This is certainly a good sign and a
move in the right direction.
E-MAIL
Continued from Page 1.
Burns said a password-capture program
was used to obtain Krause's password
and that there was probably nothing he
could have done to prevent it.
However, mnay accounts are broken
into because the owner hasn't taken rea-
sonable precaution, Burns said.
"The best defense," she said, "is to pick
a password that's very difficult to guess."
Burns also advises students not to give
their passwords out and to immediately
report any unusual activity on their ac-
count to the ITD User Advocate.
RaschidSaliou-Diallo, thestudentwho
forwarded the message to hundreds of
University students, faculty and staffearly
yesterday morning, said he was offended
by its content.
"I kind of got excited and sent it out to
too many people before I checked up on
it," he said.
Saliou-Diallo, an LSA first-year stu-
dent, said he didn't know the message had
been thoroughly investigated in 1994.
"I've apologized to President
Duderstadt and everyone who sends me
stuff,"he said. He also sent an apology to
Krause.
Since forwarding the message, Saliou-
Diallo said he has received about 30 mes-
sages an hour, most of them from people
angered by the number of long e-mail
messages they've been bombarded with.
One of the recipients even suggested that
Saliou-Diallo should have his fingers cut
off, he said.
"I regretthat I sentit tosomanypeople,"

Yeltsin seeks
compromse with
Chechnya
MOSCOW- President Boris Yeltsin
acknowledged yesterday that he cannot
be re-elected if.Russia's 14-month-old
war against the separatist movement in
Chechnya continues, but he ruled out
withdrawal of Russian troops, saying it
would lead to a bloodbath.
The Chechen war has had a corro-
sive effect on Yeltsin's political stand-
ing for more than a year, and recent
polls show him trailing several other
contenders for the presidency. Al-
though many Russians have recog-
nized that the war is an enormous
liability for Yeltsin, his remarks yes-
terday marked the first time he has
acknowledged it could demolish his
reelection chances.
Yeltsin announced the appointment
of Prime Minister Viktor
Chernomyrdin to head a government
commission that will search for a pos-
sible "compromise" resolution of the
conflict, which has claimed at least
30,000 lives.

In recent weeks, especially after a
Chechen raiding party took hundreds of
civilians hostage in the neighboring
region of Dagestan, Russian political
figures have been appealing for an end
to the war and a pullout of Russi
troops.
Pope urges peace n
war-torn El Salvador
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador -
Pope John Paul II urged Salvadorans
yesterday to drop their hatreds and de-
sire for revenge, and rebuild their war-
ravaged country on the principle of
Christian forgiveness.
Coming to El Salvador for the first
time since civil war ended four years
ago, the pope said the end of the super-
power rivalry has given the poor Cen-
tral American nation a golden opportu-
nity for peace.
"It is as if God has given you the
roads to choose for the future of your
country. The road of death or the road
of life," the pontiff told an open-air
Mass on a dusty field in the capital, Sai
Salvador.

nigration service
to increase patrollers
WASHINGTON - The Immigra-
tion and Naturalization Service, one of
the few federal agencies to receive a big
budget increase from the Republican
Congress, announced plans yesterday
to use its cash windfall to substantially
boost its roster of Border Patrol agents
and workplace inspectors-especially
in California.
The agency will significantly increase
the agents patrolling the California-
Mexico border, staffing ports of entry
and inspecting California's workplaces,
adding 1,260 new staffers to the state, a
rise of more than 25 percent.
"With this budget, the INS will con-
tinue its three-year effort to beef up
the border - especially the South-
west border - and remove criminal
and other deportable aliens from our
streets and prisons," INS Commis-
sioner Doris Meissner said in unveil-
ing specifics of the agency's record
$2.6 billion budget, a 24-percent in-
crease over last year.
Critics fear that such an aggressive

hiring effort will fill the Border Patrol
with inexperienced rookies and result
in a dramatic increase in abuses at the
border - a recurrent problem with
past hiring pushes at the Border Pa-
trol and other law enforcement agen-
cies.
Justice Dept sues
Days Inn, parent co.
WASHINGTON - The Justice De-
partment yesterday filed civil suits
against Days Inn of America Inc. and its
parent company, charging one of the
nation's largest hotel chains with ig-
noring the Americans with Disabilities
Act in the construction of five hotels
that are inconvenient and in some cas'
dangerous for the disabled.
The action marks the first time that
the federal government has challenged'
the construction and design of struc-
tures built after the law went into effect
in January 1992.
Justice Department lawyers accused
Days Inn officials, architects, builders
and individual contractors with a vari-
ety of violations. -
