East Coast slowly rebuilds ter Hurncane Floyd
TARBORO, N.C. (AP) - Rotting livestock
carcasses and floating sewage created a mount-
ing public health threat today across eastern
North Carolina, still flooded days after
Hurricane Floyd forced tens of thousands of
people from their homes.
At least 34 people were confirmed dead in
North Carolina, with the number expected to
"As the waters go down, we certainly do
expect there will be more individuals found,"
said John Butts, North Carolina state medical
And still more rain lay ahead. With about
6,500 people already in shelters and 1,500 oth-
ers believed stranded, forecasters said 1 to 2
inches of rain from Tropical Storm Harvey
could fall beginning last night, enough to cause
new flooding and keep the rivers high.
Floodwaters have virtually shut down the
I tern third of North Carolina, an area of
l8,000 square miles and 2.1 million people.
State officials said 30,000 homes were flooded
and 1,600 damaged beyond repair. The damage
may exceed the $6 billion total for Hurricane
Fran in 1996, North Carolina's costliest natur-
President Clinton toured Tarboro, one of the
hardest-hit towns in an area drenched by 28 inch-
es of rain from two hurricanes in two weeks.
"I urge you to keep your spirits up and know
we're going to be with you every step of the
way," Clinton told 500 people in this historic
town of 11,000, flanked by tobacco and cotton
fields. He also announced loans to help farm-
ers rebuild and replace lost livestock.
"When things like this happen to some of us,
we know they could happen to all of us,"
Clinton said. "We know we have a responsibil-
ity as members of the American family to help
you get back on your feet again.
Thomas Andrews, 76, of Tarboro, said: "If
they can do all this, it will be well worth it. I've
never seen this much devastation in Tarboro
and Edgecombe County in all my life."
Health officials worked to stave off disease,
which became a growing threat because of
hundreds of thousands of dead hogs, chickens
and turkeys, drinking water tainted by overflow
from sewage plants and animal waste lagoons,
and floodwaters fouled by fuel, farm chemicals
"There are a large number of different risks
out there right now," said Johanna Reese of the
state Division of Environmental Health. "The
most immediate one we have is lack of safe
Contaminated water could cause a host of
gastrointestinal illnesses, and dehydration
from severe vomiting or diarrhea could be fatal
in children, the elderly and people with weak-
ened immune systems, Reese said.
"A lot of these people are down already.
They're already weak, so they're at a greater
risk," she said.
National Guard helicopters and trucks deliv-
ered clean drinking water to several counties.
Crews in Jones County brought in two
industrial-size incinerators so workers today
could begin burning the hog carcasses whose
stench has filled the air. Some of the animals
had been dead five days and could become a

Raisa Gorbachev, 67, whose stylish,
forceful, and glamorous performance
as the wife of the last Soviet leader,
Mikhail Gorbachev, made her a light-
ning rod for attacks on his programs of
economic and political reform, died
yesterday of leukemia at University
Hospital in Muenster, Germany.
Mikhail Gorbachev led the Soviet
Union from 1985 to 1991, first as gener-
al secretary of the Communist Party and
then as Soviet president. He won the
Nobel Peace Prize in 1990, survived an
attempted coup by communist conserxa-
tives in 1991, and resigned the presiden-
cv at the end of that year when the Soviet
Union voted itself out of existence.
Raisa Gorbachev was a presence in his
life in a way that was unprecedented in
the Soviet experience.
She appeared with him publicly at
home and abroad, served as his eyes and
ears on her travels, and was one of his
closest advisers. Her activities, readily
accepted in the West, were much criti-
cized in the Soviet Union.
She was practiced in diplomacy but
created a minor furor during a 1987
summit between Gorbachev and
President Ronald Reagan. After tour-
ing the White House with first lady
Nancy Reagan, she described it as "an
official houst. I would say that, human-
ly speaking, a human being would like
to live in a regular house. This is like a
Reagan was furious. In "My
Turn," her memoir, she said, "It was-
n't a very polite answer, especially
from somebody who hadn't even
seen the private living quarters!"
Nancy Reagan also said Mrs.
Gorbachev was given to lecturing
rather than carrying on a conversa-
tion. The alleged chill between the
two first ladies was widely reported,
but by all accounts they put their dif-
ferences behind them.
Raisa Gorbachev came a long way
from her humble origins. She was born
Raisa Maksimova Titorenky on Jan. 5,
1932, in the village of Rubtsovsk,
Her father was a railroad engineer and
she grew up in various parts of the Soviet
A brilliant student, she graduated
from high school at the head of her
class and studied philosophy at the elite
Moscow State University. There she
met her future husband, a law student
from a family of peasants. They mar-
ried in 1954, so poor they had to borrow
a pair of white shoes from a friend to

Raisa Gorbachev earned a doctor-
ate in sociology from Moscow's
Lenin Pedagogical Institute, with the
thesis "The Emergence of New
Characteristics in the Daily Life of
Collective Farm Peasantry (Based
on Sociological Investigation in
Stavropol Territory)." She taught at
the Stavropol Agricultural Institute.

SUPPRESSED DEAD SEA Scrolls
WASHINGTON (AP) - In his daydreams, high school
freshman Louis Joe tries out for the basketball team, joins the
chess club and eventually becomes a doctor.
In his nightmares, he walks through a dark forest, crawls
over corpses and relives his escape from war-torn Liberia.
"I would rather die than go back to Liberia," says the 14-
year-old Maryland honor student, asserting he'd end up
"either dead or poor."
In one of the longest-running immigration sagas of its
kind, Joe and 10,000 to 15,000 other Liberians have
been living in the United States under temporary legal
status since 1991. Given extension after extension, they
are being granted another reprieve from a pending Sept.
28 deportation order, a White House official said yester-
day. He would not say how long the new extension
But their permanent status remains in limbo, and in the end
they may still have to return home.
"My future is still uncertain," said Joe after learning of the
planned extension, which is expected to be officially
announced later this week.
The previous extensions were granted to the Liberians as
the civil war dragged on, but with the fighting officially over
since 1997, the U.S. government believes the African country
is becoming safe enough for their return one day.
To most, going back seems like a death sentence nonethe-
"Here I can get an education ... There the schools aren't
even open yet," said Joe, who lives in Ellicott City, : com-
munity between Washington and Baltimore. "Without that,
I'm nobody. I'll have no life."

microsensors presented at the symposium have a varietyca
practical applications in automobiles. They can be used in
infrared imaging for seeing through fog, built into accelerome-
ters to set off airbags and can even be used in engines for sens-
ing pressure to decrease pollution,
"It is currently under study to come up with new ways of mea-
suring chemical elements in exhaust gas and the content of
oxides of nitrogen, a major smog producing gas," Terry said.
The symposium will also focus on the economic factors
influencing the flat panel display and automobile markets.
Presentations of data will be made on the economy of these
industries and how to bring more jobs to Michigan.
Coordinators said based on the success of past symposiums,
they expect attendance of more than 200 people.
The registration fee for attendees is $345, although the fee
for University faculty and students is only $75. "This is
quite a reduced rate because we want to encourage facul-
ty and students to attend," said Rice.

Fourteen-year-old Louis Joe looks on during a Liberian demon-

His father, Robert, teaches special education. His mother,
Louise, a credit investigator for a private company, says keep-
ing a job is tough when there's no guarantee she can stay
where the family has established a better life.
This is the essence of the argument among Liberians
who want to remain in the United States - perhaps forev-
er. It's not so much that they believe they'll be killed, but
that life in Liberia will be so much less than what they
