Security agents spotted it only at the last second, with just "enough time to run for cover," said Secret Service spokesman Carl Meyer. "I don't think there was all that much time, to be quite honest with you." The Secret Service refused to speculate on Corder's motive, but said the intrusion "does not appear appear to be directed toward the president." No bombs or weapons were found in the wreckage, the agency agency said. Meyer said it was possible possible Corder was trying to land the plane, not crash it. The Secret Service was looking looking into whether there was any connection between the president's president's trip Sunday to Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland and his mention of the nearby Perry Point Veterans Hospital, where Corder once underwent alcohol detoxification treatment.

(AP) - His marriage marriage had just fallen apart, his father had died of cancer, he had problems with drugs and alcohol, and he had talked of suicide. It all caused Frank Corder's relatives to say it was not politics but a determination determination to end his life that motivated him to steal a small plane in the middle of the night, fly it to Washington and crash it onto the White House lawn.

The Environmental Protection Agency announced the agreement with Tucson-based Tucson-based Tucson-based Magma yesterday. yesterday. The EPA will get $385,000 and the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality will collect $240,000. Brian Munson, director of Environmental Environmental Quality's Water Division, Division, said the state money will go into the Arizona Superfund account. account. Last month, the federal Mine Safety and Health Administration fined Magma $1.55 million for 45 violations of mine-safety mine-safety mine-safety standards standards inspectors found after four miners were killed in an August 1993 accident in Magma's Superior Superior Mine. Heavy rains In January 1993 filled a tailings impoundment so full it breached a dam and "a massive discharge of tailings" rushed into Pinto Creek, according according to the EPA. Pinto Creek empties into the Salt River just above Roosevelt Lake, a major source of drinking water for the Phoenix area. "Wastes from these mine tailings are- are- xtremely toxic to -aquatic -aquatic life," said Harry Seraydarian, director of water management in the EPA's San Francisco office.

Lee Browne, a Magma vice president and general manager of the company's Pinto Valley Division, Division, said the company has worked on all of its tailings ponds since the January 1993 flooding.

Official results showed Jacques Parizeau's Parti Quebecois winning 69 seats in the 125-seat 125-seat 125-seat legislature and leading in 12 districts. Premier Daniel Daniel Johnson's Liberal Party had won 38 seats and was leading in five. One seat was won by the small, separatist Democratic Action Party. Parizeau, 64, has promised that his government government would hold a referendum within a year on whether the predominantly French-speaking French-speaking French-speaking province province should split from Anglophile Canada. Johnson had warned that independence would lead to upheaval upheaval and economic deterioration. in Quebec wins legislative vote If Quebec were to secede, the maritime provinces provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Edward Island and Newfoundland would be physically cut off from the rest of the country. And Quebec independence could encourage a new wave of separatism separatism in western provinces that long have felt ignored ignored by Ottawa. Many Quebec voters were fed up with the sagging sagging economy and 12.2 percent unemployment in this province of 7 million people and wanted to turn the Liberals out. But a vote for the Parti Quebecois Quebecois is not necessarily a vote for separation. A referendum on sovereignty in 1980 was voted voted down 60 percent to 40 percent, and recent polls have indicated a new plebiscite would fail.

Delegates are expected to formally formally adopt the document - a 20-year 20-year 20-year blueprint for managing global population growth - with specific countries noting their objections. objections. The goal is not to have unanimity on every word, but to arrive at broadly accepted inter national guidelines. "As recently as two years ago at the Earth Summit in Rio, countries couldn't even talk about population; it was so contentious," contentious," said U.S. Undersecretary Undersecretary of State Timothy E. Wirth. 'We (have) even come to agreement on a very progressive document . . . The world is going to be different in every way it talks about population." The Cairo declaration goes far beyond the program of the last population summit, held 10 years ago in Mexico City. The document document focuses not only on family planning but also recommends a broad program of social measures measures to improve the status of women. Included are increasing their access to education, health care and meaningful employment. The notion is that these efforts, which are worthwhile in themselves, also tend to reduce the number of children women have.
