Arrest proves false lead in Unabomber search
EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) - Police
briefly thought they'd nabbed the
Unabomber, but then found it was a
Authorities said yesterday that the
man arrested on weapons and traffic
violations has no ties to the elusive
When police arrested him Saturday
for having expired California plates on
his maroon van, they found a gun and
electronic equipment inside.
CBS radio news, citing an unidenti-
fied source, said authorities found
bomb-making equipment in the van and,
in the 37-year-old man's Evanston
home, a typewriter with a font that
could match the type used in one or
more of the Unabomber's letters.
Police said they called in the FBI
because of the suspicious nature of the
items in the van, but refused to confirm
or deny the CBS report, as did the FBI.
After further investigation, agents
concluded the man, whose name was
not released, had no ties to the bomber
who began his campaign against tech-
nology in the Chicago suburb of
Evanston, killing three people and in-
juring 23 with 16 package bombs since
"Unfortunately, I have to say we do
not have the Unabomber," Police Chief
Gerald Cooper told reporters.
Officials at the Justice Department's
command center told White House
Chief of Staff Leon Panetta that "they
did not believe the arrest in Chicago
relates to the Unabomber case," Panetta
The FBI believes the Unabomber, so
named because his first bombs targeted
universities and airlines, might have
gone to high school in Chicago's north
suburbs in the 1970s and now lives in
His first bomb was found in a parking
lot at the University of Illinois at Chi-
cago in a package bearing a return ad-
dress on the campus of Northwestern
University in Evanston.
In June, the Unabomber promised to
stop planting bombs if The New York
Times and The Washington Post pub-
lished his 35,000-word treatise on the
inhumanity of industrial society. Both
papers cooperated and published the
manifesto in the Post on Sept. 19.
Clinton seeks to ease U.S. racial tensions
WASHINGTON - President Clinton intends to help heal
the nation's current racial rift by fighting to preserve social
programs, his chief of staff said yesterday.
Clinton's proposal to balance the federal budget without
steep reductions in social programs is the best reflection "of
what we want to do in terms of bringing the races together,"
said White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta.
"If we pass a budget that gets rid of affirmative action, that
cuts into the very programs that help to educate children, ...
that's the worst thing we can do in terms of dividing the races
in this country," Panetta said.
The debate over racial tension in America grew hotter and The Clintons
louder after the acquittal last Tuesday of O.J. Simpson.
Last week, the President said he hoped the nation would not use the Simpson
verdict as a reason to deepen the racial divide.
There was more evidence of that divide yesterday in a poll that found a majority
of white people harbor misconceptions about blacks - mainly that they make up
a greater share of the U.S. population and benefit more from the federal govern
ment than they actually do.

SSupreme Court to nile on
discrimination against gays
Los Angeles Times
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -
Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will
hear a case for the first time on whether
the Constitution's guarantee of "equal
protection of the law" bars bias against
The court case has the potential to do
grave damage to gay rights in ruling on
Colorado's Amendment 2, which abol-
ished claims ofdiscrimination based on
The Supreme Court, led by Chief
Justice William Rehnquist, is inclined
to defer to the states and to uphold the
will of the majority.
In defense of Amendment 2, lawyers
for Gov. Roy Romer use both themes.
People have the clear right to draw their
own state constitution, they argue.
Moreover, they note, discrimination
against gay men and lesbians, unlike
bias based on race, gender and ethnicity,
has not been deemed unconstitutional.
If the high court upholds the Colo-
rado measure, Tebedo expects as many
as 10 other states to follow with their
own laws stripping homosexuals of le-
Gay-rights lawyers say they know
they are fighting an uphill battle. Even
if they win, they would only gain the
right to seek favorable laws from city
councils and state legislatures...
Beyond legal issues, Loeffler says a
Supreme Court ruling upholding
Amendment 2 would send a devastat-
ing message to gays nationwide.
It would not be the first time the high
court has sent such a message.
In the 1986 case of Bowers vs.
Hardwick, the justices voted 5-4 that
the constitutional "right to privacy" did
not protect homosexuals from prosecu-
tion under anti-sodomy laws.
Since then, gay-rights activists have
made slow but steady progress in win-
ning protections against discrimination.
FCC to lift AT&T
WASHINGTON - Federal regula-
tors, finally acknowledging there is
competition in the long-distance mar-
ket, plan to let AT&T Corp. play by the
same rules as its rivals.
The Federal CommunicationsCom-
mission is set on Thursday to free AT&T
from residential price regulations un-
der which the telecommunications gi-
ant has operated for years.
However, consumer advocates and
rivals MCI and Sprint oppose the plan.
AT&T, the nation's largest long-dis-
tance company with 56.6 percent of the
market, has been pressing the FCC for
such freedoms for nearly eight years.
While the FCC plans to lift residen-
tial price regulations, it would impose
other provisions to protect low-income
customers and people who make less
than $10 a month in long-distance calls.
The Big Three phone companies'
basic rates have gone up 15 percent
since 1991, the FCC said. About one-
third of all long-distance callers are not
enrolled in a discounted calling plan
and pay basic rates.
Under the plan the FCC is consider-
ing, AT&T would be freed from the
price regulation that does not apply to
MCI and Sprint. AT&T, like its rivals,
would be permitted to charge whatever
it wants forresidential service andwould
no longer be subject to rate caps.
Woman to use
diabetes in defense
QUEENSBURY, N.Y. - The de-
fense for a woman accused of killing
her boyfriend will argue her behavior
was affected by undiagnosed diabetes.
Jury selection begins tomorrow in
the murder trial of Gail Hanna.
Her lawyer, Gary Hobbs, said he plans
to argue she was suffering from ex-
treme emotional disturbance, and that
she had a past history of mental illness.
He also said she was later found to have
diabetes, causing hyperglycemia, or
high blood sugar, the day of the murder.
"What we're indicating is that blood
sugar discrepancies can cause abnor-
mal behavior and affect cognitivethink-
ing," Hobbs said.
Philip Cryer of the American Diabetes
Association said he's never heard of
hyperglycemia leading to such behavior.

French nuclear tests
MADRID, Spain - More than
10,000 people opposed to French
nuclear tests marched through central
Madrid yesterday, the day before French
President Jacques Chirac arrives for a
Organizers called on Spanish Prime
Minister Felipe Gonzalez to exert
greater pressure on France to halt the
nuclear tests in the South Pacific.
Gonzalez currently holds the rotating
presidency of the European Union,
"President Gonzalez can do more and
should do more to make it clear to
Chirac that Europe wants the tests to
stop," said Antonio Gutierrez of the
Workers Commissions, one of the
country's two main labor federations.
The march was organized by a coali-
tion of environmental groups, laboi
unions and political parties.
Waving placards and chanting slo-
gans, protesters, many of them children
and teen-agers, marched peacefully
along Atocha Avenue, a main thor-
oughfare, toward the center of the city.
