minister.

Pope begins
pilgrimage in
Turkey
Pope Benedict XVI began his
pilgrimage among Turkey's tiny
Christian communities yesterday
by paying homage to an Italian
priest slain during Islamic pro-
tests and expressing sympathy
for the pressures facing religious
minorities in the Muslim world.
The messages - made at one of
Turkey's holiest Christian sites -
could set the tone for the remain-
der of Benedict's first papal trip
to a Muslim nation as he tries to
strengthen bonds with the spiri-
tual leader of the world's orthodox
Christians.

One dead in
St. Louis
fraternity fire

Two of three
residents survive fire
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A fire at a fra-
ternity house near the University of
Missouri-St. Louis campus killed
a student early yesterday, less than
two weeks after a fatal blaze at the
home of a Nebraska fraternity.
Three students lived at the Pi
Kappa Alpha house in St. Louis, and
two got out when the fire broke out
around 3:30 a.m., university spokes-
man Bob Samples said.
Police identified the victim as
Brian Schlittler, 25, a senior from
the St. Louis area.
"It's a tragedy," Samples said.

"We want to find out how it hap-
pened and work from there."
No one else was hurt. Authori-
ties were investigating how the fire
began at the small brick and wood-
frame house.
One of the residents arrived
home to find a couch on fire in the
living room, Bel-Ridge Police Chief
Gordon Brock said. The student ran
through the house, knocking on the
doors of the other two students.
The student told police he roused
Schlittler, Brock said.
"The other two left the house and
turned around to see that Schlittler
hadn't followed," Brock said. "By
the time they turned around, it was
too rough to go back in there."

Frist abandons
presdnilplans

One-armed

Senate majority
leader leaves
wide-open race
WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen-
ate Majority Leader Bill Frist
(R-Tenn.) renounced a bid for the
White House in 2008 yesterday,
an early dropout from the most
wide-open presidential race in
decades.
"In the Bible, God tells us for
everything there is a season, and
for me, for now, this season of
being an elected official has come
to a close," said Frist, a surgeon
before he entered politics in 1994.
While the first national conven-
tion delegates won't be chosen for

more than a year, jockeying among
potential presidential contenders
is well under way.
Frist made his announcement
as several potential GOP hopefuls
were descending on Miami for the
annual meeting of the Republican
Governors' Association. Among
them were Massachusetts Gov.
Mitt Romney, outgoing head of the
group, and Arkansas Gov. Mike
Huckabee. Sen. John McCain (R-
Ariz.) planned private meetings
with governors today followed by
a reception.
The roster of potential candi-
dates in both parties is long in the
first White House campaign since
1928 in which neither an incum-
bent president nor vice president is
in the early mix of candidates.

MR. ENGINEER

audience's energy, Foster separated
himself from the pack by giving the
only correct answer of the night.
Next, the competitors showcased
their talents.
Contestantsrapped,salsadanced,
sang, juggled and lip-synched their
way into the judges' hearts.
After the intermission, the five
finalists were announced. Fun
and games were put aside. Their
last chance to secure the title of
Mr. Engineer was to answer a
long and convoluted question of
ethics.
Chrysler Auditorium sold out,
selling 250 tickets. The money
raised through ticket sales and

donations - close to $2,000 - will
be given to SafeHouse, an organi-
zation that aids victims of domes-
tic violence. Contestants received
extra points for raising money on
behalf of the Society of Women
Engineers.
Over the years, the talent com-
petition has consisted of every-
thing from impersonations of
Britney Spears to tap dance rou-
tines.
"The comedy routines usually
win it," said Ashley Issa, co-chair of
this year's competition.
Before Foster received his sash
and trophy, Phil Kofahl, last year's
Mr. Engineer, reflected on his own
victory.
"It was a rush. It was magical,"
he said. "It validated four years of
college."
