endorse the ERA and maintained a
rigid anti-abortion stance.
"I PERSONALLY believe that these
two actions could prevent our party
from electing the next president of the
UnitedStates," said Crisp.
"Our party has endorsed and worked
for the ERA for 40 years," she said.
"Now we are reversing our position and
are about to bury the rights of over 100

Oh, give the. a home
where the elephant roam
Thirty-three baby elephants who faced certain death from overpopula-
tion in their African homeland are thriving in the hot Texas summer. "This
is the largest group of African elephants found outside Africa," a
spokesperson for the International Wildlife Park in Grand Prairie, Texas
said Tuesday. Asked how the baby elephants were doing in Texas' intense
summer heat, the spokesperson said, "Fine. The temperature is comparable
to South Africa." The pachyderms, ranging in age from one to four, are
confined to an "elephant section" about 400 feet long and 500 feet wide.
Eventually, some will be shipped to zoos around the nation. Qi.
