Cultists, programmers die

he had been "chosen" to deliver the
news of the group's mass suicide to the
world to draw attention to their spiritu-

D'Angelo, who intends to talk to the
media but has so far declined on
Matzorkis's advice, has not repudiated
any of the group's tenets, Matzorkis
said, but rather told the software execu-

fellow cultists on their journey to a bet-

After Matzorkis and D'Angelo
drove down to Rancho Santa Fe

Wednesday, D'Angelo entered the
mansion and soon emerged looking
"white as a sheet," Matzorkis
recalled. It was Matzorkis who then
placed the anonymous call to law

standpoint is insoluble," Juip said.
"Admissions needs to have more contact
with other organizations on campus
before admitting all of the people that
they do.'
Should a large first-year class materi-
alize, Housing officials may permit
some students to drop their leases with-
out penalty, but may still be forced to use
overflow triples. This practice generated
significant student protest when it was
implemented last year but is less contro-
versial now.
"At the beginning of the year, there
were a lot of complaints' said Rochelle
Woods, the resident director at West
Quad. "But now people are used to it or
have had a chance to move."
While several students said they chose
to live in a triple this year simply for its
lower cost, LSA first-year student
Joshua Mintz said the experience was a
valuable part of his University education.
"It's not so bad," he said."In fact, it
sort of helped me manage everything
better. I learned to manage space and live
with people."
While the University has not con-
structed new residence halls since 1968,
its housing office has managed to add
residential space to the inventory over
the past two years by recovering rooms
in West Quad, Levy said. Lloyd-
Winchell Hall had been on indefinite
loan to academic departments, but is
now again under the jurisdiction of
University Housing.
There is no definite plan for new resi-
dence hall construction, though Housing
has explored the idea of construction
within the next decade, Levy said.
"Whether you have a good or bad
experience in the dorms, you get exposed
to a lot of things. It's definitely impor-
tant"said LSA first-year Rishi Moudgil.

Ofical: nuclear
reduction a danger
States could wind up shifting the tar-
gets of its nuclear weapons from mili-
tary installations to huge civilian popu-
lations if the nation continues to cut its
strategic nuclear force, a chief steward
of the U.S. stockpile warned yesterday.
With a large nuclear force, the United
States in the past has been confident it
could deter aggression by aiming its
thousands of warheads at noncivilian tar-
gets -- bases, missile silos and military
headquarters, said C. Paul Robinson,
president of the Sandia National
Laboratories, which are responsible for
maintaining the U.S. arsenal.
But if its strategic nuclear arsenal
shrinks much further, the United States
may begin to take the view of nations
with smaller arsenals - that threaten-
ing civilian targets is a surer way to
frighten an opponent out of attacking,
he said. In this way, a smaller nuclear
force might paradoxically set the stage
for a nuclear war with greater loss of

human life.
"To move lower would cause, first of
all, a major change in your overall
nuclear policy," Robinson told
reporters in a breakfast meeting.
James Earl Ray
maintins innocence
ATLANTA - Twenty-nine years
after the death of the Rev. Martin
Luther King Jr., the civil rights leader's
son son met yesterday with a dying
James Earl Ray.
The two men shook hands,discussed
Ray's health and touched on the los-
ago excesses of former FBI director.
Edgar Hoover. Then King, looking Ray
in the eye, slid ever so gently toward
the heart of the matter. He asked ,"Did
you kill my father?"
"No, no;' a frail Ray said. "I didn't."
Ray said more, some of it rambling,
some not comprehensible. "Sometimes
these questions are difficult to answer
and you have to make a personal evalu-
ation and ... maybe come to a con
sion, he said.

Cancer institute reverses decision
WASHINGTON - The National Cancer Institute reversed itself and recom-
mended that women in their 40s undergo routine mammogram screening yestcr-
day, a decision it hopes will lay to rest one of the most fractious national debates
in recent medical history.
The institute, part of the federal government's National Institutes of Health, s
women of average risk should by screened every one to two years beginning at age
40, and women whose risk is higher - such as those with a family history of the
disease or a genetic predisposition for it - should consider having mammograms
even earlier.
President Clinton, whose mother died of breast cancer, said the recommenda-
tions "give clear, concise guidance to women in our national fight against breast
cancer." He announced a series of steps aimed at making mammograms more read-
ily available to the targeted age group.
The institute's announcement followed a Sunday announcement by the
American Cancer Society urging women in their 40s to have the procedure annu-
ally, a change from its previous recommendation of one-to-two years. The insti
and the cancer society - regarded as the nation's two most influential cancer p51-
icymaking groups - issued a joint statement yesterday saying their advice should
be regarded as compatible.


Gingrich visits
China, minus gloves
BEIJING - And now for the main
As Vice President Al Gore pre-
pared to leave China after a polite
visit reflecting the Clinton adminis-
tration's policy of "constructive
engagement" with the world's most
populous country, House Speaker
Newt Gingrich entered the ring with
his gloves off.
Gingrich, who arrived here yesterday
night, set the tone for his three-day sor-
tie into China with a speech delivered
earlier in the day in Hong Kong, vow-
ing that he will not "remain silent about
the lack of basic freedom - speech,
religion, assembly, the press - in
Although his visit promises to be
much more contentious than Gore's,
for many in the Chinese leadership it
is more important. It was the
Republican Party sweep of Congress
in 1994 and Gingrich's elevation to
the speaker's post that most upset

China's conventional wisdom about
American politics. The downward
spiral of Sino-U.S. relations tVt
began then culminated in the mility
standoff in the Taiwan Strait last
India, Pakistan to
resume lks
NEW DELHI - India and Pakistan,
archenemies capable of making nuclear
weapons, are about to sit down and c
for the first time in three years.
The resumption of bilateral talks
between the South Asian nations,
which begin today with a meeting of
foreign-ministry officials here in
India's capital, has raised hopes of
reducing the hostility that has resulted
in three wars since British-ruled India
was partitioned in 1947.
The unremitting tensions have
prompted two of the world's bigger and
poorer countries to maintain large, co*
armed forces, slowing development.
