FBI spokesperson Craig Dahle said the letters

Dahle would not say who the letters were sent

Texas denies killer's bid for clemency
AUSTIN, Texas - A state board unanimously rejected Karla Tucker's bid for
clemency yesterday, leaving only the Supreme Court and the governor with the
power to halt the pickax killer's scheduled execution today.
Despite pleas of mercy, including from Pope John Paul II, the gruesome nature
of her crime left the Board of Pardons and Paroles with no qualms, the chair sai
They turned down Tucker 16-0, with two members abstaining.
"There is no question as to their vote. There is no question as to how they feel,"
said chair Victor Rodriguez. "I, myself, have absolutely no quarrel with the deci-
sion to deny Ms. Tucker's request on all fronts."
Tucker, a former teen-age prostitute who found religion in prison, would be the
first woman executed in Texas since the Civil War. Her execution is scheduled for
today at 6 p.m.
In her appeal before the Supreme Court, Tucker's attorneys contend the com-
mutation process is flawed and unconstitutional in part because of the consistent
lack of favorable rulings.
All 76 requests since 1993 have been rejected, including 16 last year when the
state executed a record 37 convicted killers.
"Texas has no mercy," said David Botsford, Tucker's lawyer. "The clemency
process in this state is a farce:'

"If we were doing something so
wrong then we wouldn't be getting
numbers like this," Monts said.
Race is only one of many factors
used to determine whether an applicant
will be admitted, postponed, delayed
until further information is known (such
as the applicant's high school senior-
year GPA), or rejected by the
University. Other factors, such as eco-
nomic status, geographical location and
special circumstances (such as being a
male applying for the School of
Nursing) factor into the selection index.
"We don't use grids, we use a selec-
tion index to handle to volume of appli-
cations easier," said Monts. The use of
grids was discontinued last year in
favor of the index, which is more effi-
cient, Monts said.
The selection index is a formula
that assigns points to each factor the
University uses during the admissions
process. The most important factor is
GPA. Others, such as an outstanding
essay, are only small considerations.
Being a member of a race that is feder-
ally designated as being underrepresent-
ed in higher eduction or coming from an
area that is also underrepresented at the
University are factors that are considered
less than GPA but more than an essay.
Monts said he did not want to disclose the
specific weights assigned to these factors.
Some SACUA members said they sup-
port Monts' view that diversity is a part of
the University's educational experience.
"I think the goals of the University
are commendable," said SACUA mem-
ber William Ensminger, a pharmacolo-

diversity is needed and not whether or

CHICAGO - The number of AIDS
deaths in the United States dropped 44
percent in the first half of 1997 com-
pared to the same period in 1996, with
Los Angeles and New York City show-
ing even greater declines.
According to the newest figures from
the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention released yesterday, the num-
ber of new A IDS cases dropped 12 per-
cent during the same period, although
the number of people living with AIDS
rose 12 percent to 259,000.
The improvements in statistics for
both deaths and severe illness are due to
new forms of therapy, particularly the
advent of protease inhibitors about three
years ago. When a protease inhibitor is
combined with two other drugs that
block a viral enzyme called reverse tran-
scriptase, concentrations of the virus in
the blood are dropped to undetectable
levels in most patients who can tolerate

WASHINGTON - The fate of
President Clinton's most popular new
domestic spending programs - child
care, medical research and education
-- hangs on the fragile hope that
Congress will pass sweeping tobacco
legislation to pay for them.
He is gambling that the appeal of
having $65.5 billion to spend on t
programs will prod Congress in,

But some members of Congress are
already predicting Clinton's payment
strategy will fall flat. As a result, the
money for his initiatives would likely
have to come from cuts in spending,

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - After six
hours of talks in a luxurious desert
encampment, Secretary of State
Madeleine Albright announced yester-
day that the Saudis have agreed with
the United States that Iraqi President
Saddam Hussein's "lawless behavior"
could provoke "grave consequences" if
he does not cede to diplomatic efforts

U.S. and Saudi officials "see eye-to-
eye on the issues involved," she told a
news conference after some of the most
critical talks during her swing through
the Persian Gulf region.
Saudi Arabia, one the most strategic
nations on the Arabian Peninsula, is the
largest gulf exporter of oil to the United
States, as well as one of America's clos-
est Arab allies.
The Saudi government yesterday
did not openly back the use of U.S.
airstrikes to force Baghdad to allow
unfettered U.N. weapons inspectors.
But in an oblique statement, the king-
dom gave an implicit, if reluctant, go-
ahead for military action, saying in a
statement: "Failure of (diplomatic)
means would lead to grave con
quences whose responsibility wo
lie exclusively on the Iraqi regime,

towards end of the year, economists'*
