ASSAULTS
Continued from Page 1A
He demanded that the safe be opened,
but she was unable to unlock it. He
then forced her up a nearby hill and
raped her. The suspect also stole the
victim's money, wallet and credit
cards, according to AAPD reports.
The suspect is also allegedly
responsible for two armed robberies in
the last week.
In the first incident, a woman who
worked at Slauson Middle School on
Washington Street had parked her car
in the school's lot at 6:49 a.m. She was
then approached by a man who held a
knife to her and demanded money.
They struggled, and she dropped her
purse. The suspect fled the scene with
the victim's purse toward Eighth
Street, according to AAPD reports.
In the second case the suspect is
charged for the armed robbery of the
Clarion Hotel at 2900 Jackson Rd. on
Monday morning, according to an
AAPD statement.
According to the statement, the
man arrested is not considered a sus-
pect in last week's attempted sexual
assault and armed robbery of a
woman at the Nob Hill Apartment
complex near campus. This incident
occurred last Tuesday afternoon,
when a man forcibly entered the vic-
tim's apartment and attempted to sex-
ually assault her.

Purdue student kills dorm counselor.
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - A shotgun-wielding Purdue University grad , -
dent killed a dorm supervisor yesterday who had turned him in on a cocaine
charge, then took his own life as police closed in.
The names of the victim, an undergraduate, and his killer were not immediate
released.
According to reports, the gunman walked into Wiley Hall, a four-story, red brick
men's dormitory housing mostly first-year students, and entered the supervisor's
third-floor room.
He then shot the supervisor twice around 2:50 p.m.
"I just heard a big, loud blast. And then I heard what sounded like something
dropping," said first-year student Kevin France, who lives on the floor above., '1t
was so loud, I could feel the floor shaking."
The gunman then ran down the hall and locked himself in his room, Purdue
spokesperson Joe Bennett said. The gunman then shot himself.
Police evacuated the building and, after a room-by-room sweep, fired tear ga
into the room, burst in and discovered the gunman's body.
University spokesperson Ellen Rantz said the dorm supervisor had found
cocaine in the other student's possession on Tuesday and alerted campus police,
who searched his room and confirmed the drug possession.

Record number of
older Americans
returning to school
WASHINGTON - Reflecting both
the strains of today's high-tech economy
and the pursuit of personal fulfillment,
Americans 40 and older are going back
to school in record numbers, according to
a report released yesterday.
Enrollment of 40-plus students in
adult education more than tripled
between 1970 and 1993, according to
the study, which was conducted by the
Washington-based Institute for Higher
Education Policy and the Boston-based
Education Resource Institute.
Overall, the presence of the older gen-
eration in higher education jumped from
5.5 percent of total enrollment in 1970 to
11.2 percent in 1993, the study said.
"By sheer numbers, the baby boomers
are revolutionizing our educational
worlds, as they have been doing all along,
starting in elementary school and contin-
uing throughout society as they have
aged," said Ted Freeman, president of
The Education Resource Institute, a not-

for-profit organization that provides
information and financing services.W.
The report predicted that these stu-
dents "will be critical to the economic
productivity of the nation."
Boeing 737s may
receive ugrades
WASHINGTON- All Boeing 77s
currently flying should have upgraded
safety equipment installed to gusrd
against possible rudder failure suspect-
ed in two unsolved crashes, the govmrr-
ment recommended yesterday.
If the Federal AviatW
Administration concurs with the rec-
ommendations of the National
Transportation Safety Board, Boeing
and the airlines would be required;4o
make safety modifications on the 2,800
Boeing 737s in fleets around the world.
Such a development could costthe
airline industry and Boeing tens of mjl-
lions of dollars, but Boeing said it's too
early to tell exactly how much or the,
part of the total that Boeing or the a
lines would have to pay.

Arafat cals Israeli
proposal for
Hebron racist
CAIRO, Egypt - Palestinian leader
Yasser Arafat yesterday accused the
Israeli government of racism in reaction
to what he said was Israel's proposal to
partition the disputed West Bank town of
Hebron and to limit Arab construction on
streets used by Jewish settlers there.
On a visit here to consult with
Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and
Jordan's Prime Minister Abdul-Karim
Kabariti, Arafat grew angry as he
demanded that Israel abide by accords
signed last year in which it pledged to
withdraw its troops from Hebron.
He waved proposals he said he
received from the Israelis on Tuesday
night, saying they contained unaccept-
able changes in the Israeli-Palestinian
accords,
"It is my right to tell you and expose to
everyone - the Arab and Islamic nations
and Palestinian people - what bitter
truths we face," Arafat said. "It shows ...
complete and abhorrent racism."

Despite the harsh tone of Arafat's
remarks, Israeli Foreign Minister David
Levy said agreement on the contentior
Hebron question was close and might"
be achieved withinhours,
Britam considers
baning handmguns
LONDON - Honoring the memory
of 16 massacred first-graders and their
teacher, the British government yesterday
proposed some of the world's tough
gun controls, including a ban on all han -
guns except .22-caliber target pistols.,
The sweeping government initiative
immediately was subject to protest riin
opponents, parents ofthe children slain at
Dunblane elementary school in $cotlaid
last spring and even some of its own sup-
porters for not going far enough. All
demand a total ban on handguns.
Yesterday's proposal coincided with
publication of an inquiry by Lord. W.
Douglas Cullen, a Scottish jurist, int
the March 13 Dunblane incident.
