Teen suspect read Nazi material
LEBANON, N.H. (AP) - One of two teen-
agers charged with killing two Dartmouth Col-
lege professors apparently had been reading
white supremacy and Holocaust revisionism
material, ABC News reported yesterday.
Investigators found neo-Nazi literature in the
bedroom of suspect Robert Tulloch, 17, "Prime
Time Thursday" reported, citing unidentified

millions of Jews and others by Nazis never hap-
The German-born professors, Half and
Susanne Zantop, were murdered at their
Hanover home on Jan. 27, which is Holocaust
Remembrance Day in Germany.
Friends have said the Zantops were politically
active and believed strongly that Germany
should face up to its past.
Tulloch and James Parker, 16, both of
Chelsea, Vt., both have been charged with first-
Authorities have refused to discuss a motive
or any connection between the boys and the vic-
tims, who were stabbed repeatedly. Half Zantop,
62, taught earth sciences at Dartmouth, and his
wife, Susanne Zantop, 55, was chairwoman of
the German studies department.
Tulloch has been returned to New Hampshire.
Parker was scheduled to appear Friday in Henry
County Superior Court in New Castle, Ind.,
where he and Tulloch were arrested at a truck

Henry County Prosecutor Kit Crane said he
expects Parker to waive his right to further
extradition proceedings at the hearing and antic-
ipates authorities will arrange to return Parker
to New Hampshire today or tomorrow.
In Chelsea, about 250 people packed into the
United Church of Chelsea yesterday night to try
to decide what to tell their children about the
two hometown suspects.
Some of them wept, said Andy Pomerantz, a
local psychiatrist who led the private meeting.
"None of us understands this, but it happens."
"The meeting focused on the children of
Chelsea," said Pomerantz. "We need to be a
source of support for our children."

WASHINGTON (AP) - Defense
Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld will
order a moratorium on allowing
civilians at the controls of any mili-
tary ship, aircraft or vehicle, offi-
cials said yesterday.
The move responds to questions
about the role of civilians aboard
the U.S. submarine that collided
last week with a Japanese fishing
Rumsfeld's spokesman, Rear
Adm. Craig Quigley, said the order
is a "work in progress" and may be
issued by the end of the week.
"All the services know this is
coming," Quigley said.
Rumsfeld wants the military ser-
vices to review their safety guide-
lines on civilian participation in
military activities. He supports
involving civilians in military exer-
cises and maneuvers, Quigley said,
but wants to ensure that relevant
policies are reviewed considering
what happened aboard the USS
The Greeneville, a nuclear-pow-
ered attack submarine, had 16 civil-
ians aboard when it collided with
the fishing vessel Ehime Maru on
Feb. 9 off the coast of Honolulu.
The Japanese boat, on a cruise to
teach commercial fishing to high
school students, sank, and nine
people were lost at sea.
Two civilians were at control
positions aboard the Greeneville at
the time of the accident, although
the Navy says they did not cause it.
Shortly after the accident, the
Navy stopped allowing civilians in
the control rooms of submarines.
The possibility that the presence
of civilians aboard the sub could
have contributed to the accident is
one of the subjects to be examined
in a formal Navy court of inquiry
scheduled to convene in Hawaii
WASHINGTON (AP) - In a high-
ly unusual move by some of the
nation's premier scientists, 80 Nobel
laureates joined forces yesterday to
urge President Bush not to block fed-
eral financing of promising medical
research using certain master cells
called stem cells.
"It would be tragic to waste this
opportunity to pursue the work that
could potentially alleviate human suf-
fering," the scientists, including DNA
co-discoverer James Watson, wrote
Stem cells are building blocks for
all human tissue. Scientists say
research with them could lead to revo-
lutionary therapies for diseases from
Alzheimer's to diabetes. They can be
derived from aborted fetuses, fertility
clinics' discarded embryos or adults.
All types are under study, but embry-
onic stem cells generate the most
excitement because they appear the
Anti-abortion groups oppose fetal
and embryonic stem cell research, and
Bush has signaled he may block feder-
al money to pay for it.
Federally funded scientists can't
touch human embryos, but privately
funded scientists have multiplied
embryonic stem cells in laboratories.

HEADLINES FROM AROUND THE WVORLD
Clinton denies knowledge of pardons
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, buffeted by controversy, said yesterday she "did
not have any involvement" in the pardons her husband granted on his way out of the
White House and expressed dismay that her brother was paid lavishly to lobby f
the relief of two men. "If I had known about this, we wouldn't have been standing
here today" the former first lady said of her brother, lawyer Hugh Rodham, and the
$400,000 he received from two pardon-seekers. Had she known, the Democratic
senator added at a cro(vded news conference, "I might have been able to prevent this
Mrs. Clinton spoke on a day on which President Bush said he believes Congress
has a right to investigate the pardons granted by Bill Clinton, and as the head of one
congressional investigating committee said he would insist on "full compliance"
with a subpoena for records from the William J. Clinton Presidential Foundation.
The group, chartered to establish Clinton's presidential library, received $450,000 in
donations from Denise Rich, the ex-wife of fugitive financier Marc Rich, who was
one of Clinton's pardon recipients.
There was a fresh disclosure during the day on top of Rodham's involvement -''
that Mrs. Clinton's campaign treasurer had been paid $4,000 in legal fees to prepare
President Bush said yesterday he is disturbed that China is Helping Iraq build a
more sophisticated and effective defense against American and British air
"It's troubling that they be involved in helping Iraq develop a system that W
endanger our pilots," Bush told a White House news conference. He was
responding to reports that last week's U.S.-British airstrikes in the Baghdad area
were prompted by indications that Chinese civilian and military workers have
been helping lay fiber-optic cables to improve the durability of Iraq's air defense
"We're concerned about the Chinese presence in Iraq," Bush said, and the
administration is "sending the appropriate response" to Beijing.
Bush expressed satisfaction with the effectiveness of last week's airstrikes,
which targeted more than 20 Iraqi air defense radars and command-and-control
facilities linked to air defenses.
Pentagon officials said yesterday that less than half the targeted radars we

Setting the tone for Russia's first
direct contact with the Bush administra-
tion, Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov said
yesterday the time had come for serious
dialogue with the United States on mis-
sile defense and other nuclear issues.
Ivanov said the world political cli-
mate depends on relations between the
United States and Russia -a view con-
tested by the Bush administration which
does not consider Russia its equal.
"We are in the mood for the most
active dialogue at all levels, starting with
the highest level ... on the entire range
of issues in Russian-American rela-
tions," Ivanov said,

Serbs of gang rapes
A U.N. tribunal yesterday estab-
lished "sexual enslavement" as a war
crime, convicting three Bosnian Serbs
who took part in the nightly gang-
rapes and torture of Muslim women
and girls at so-called "rape camps"
during the Bosnian war.
The tribunal found Dragoljub
Kunarac and Radomir Kovac guilty of
sexually assaulting and torturing Mus-
lim women and girls as young as 12
years old; forcing them to perform
domestic chores and selling them into
further bondage. They received 28 and
20 year sentences, respectively.
A third defendant, Zoran Vukovic,
was convicted of raping and tortur-
ing a 15-year-old girl - who wz
about the same age as his own
daughter -- but acquitted him of
