Calif, primary later for 1992 ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES LOS ANGELES: The Democratic Party on Thursday set a ly2 presidential primary calendar that keeps Iowa and New Hampshire at the head of the pack but lacks the early California vote the party hoped would yield a quick nominee. Approval of the jalendar came on the opening day of the Democratic National Committee's annual meeting, which was attracting a half-dozen of the party's 1992 presidential prospects. The meeting served an as unofficial opening of the late-starting Democratic campaign. So far, there are three declared major candidates: Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin, former Massachusetts Sen. Paul Tsongas and Virginia Gov. L. Douglas Wilder. More entries are expected by early October. Congressional checks bounce for free WASHINGTON: Members of the House bounced hundreds of thousands of dollars in personal checks written on their Capitol bank accounts and paid none of the penalties a normal citizen would face, according to the General Accounting Office. The agency said House members wrote 8,331 bad checks during the year ending June 30, 1990. That's an average of nearly 19 rubber checks per lawmaker. And even after new policies were established midway through that year to cut down on the abuses, nearly a third of the 440 House members and nonvoting delegates bounced checks of more than $1,000, the report said. One MIA photo being taken seriously WASHINGTON: The Pentagon said Thursday that most of the pictures purported to show live American MIAs from the Vietnam War are fakes, but at least one is being taken seriously. It appears to show Army Capt. Donald G. Carr, who has been missing for 20 years since the plane in which he was riding as an observer was shot down over Laos. Carr, the pilot and the aircraft were never found. AT&T workers in class during outage NEW YORK: Technicians who monitor an AT&T facility that shut down, bringing New York's airports to a standstill, were absent because they were at a class on a new alarm designed to prevent the very trouble that caused the outage, their union said Thursday. American Telephone & Telegraph Co. confirmed that some of the technicians at the Manhattan call-switching center were at such a class during Tuesday's outage, but wouldn't say whether they were the workers responsible for checking alarms. AT&T said the failure occurred after alarms went unheeded for six hours. The union denied it. Flooding threatens Rio Grande valley DEL RIO, Texas: Homeowners and campers headed for higher ground Thursday after heavy rain doused parts of southwestern Texas and water rose in the Rio Grande and Lake Amistad. Officials warned residents of downstream low areas that water releases from Lake Amistad, on the Mexican border, might have to be increased if rainfall continued. Man gets maximum for club fire NEW YORK: The man who set a fire that killed 87 people at a social club received the maximum sentence Thursday: 25 years to life in prison. Julio Gonzalez, 37, was convicted of 174 counts of murder two counts for each death. He got 25 years to life for each count, but under state law the sentences must run concurrently. Gonzalez will be eligible for parole in 25 years. More national news, Page A-8.

Nets from sky to ease traffic COX NEWS SERVICE SEOUL, South Korea Ever get so hacked off in traffic that you start fantasizing that some giant unseen bolt from the blue might reach down and snatch up the car blocking your lane? Well, that's precisely what will happen here this busy holiday weekend, when South Korea deploys military helicopters with nets to break up traffic jams by plucking stalled cars from the road. The holiday is Chusok, the annual autumn moon festival. A bit like Thanksgiving in the United States, Chusok is a time for feasts and visiting relatives. Heavy arms head to Croatia ZAGREB, Yugoslavia: A huge column of Yugoslav army tanks, military vehicles and artillery rumbled toward Croatia on Thursday in a show of strength apparently meant to intimidate the secessionist republic's forces. The European Community, meanwhile, decided against dispatching a peacekeeping force to Yugoslavia. But the EC foreign ministers agreed to study the possibility of a later deployment. Hijacker arrested at airport TUNIS, Tunisia: An unarmed Tunisian who falsely claimed he had a bomb commandeered an Alitalia jetliner with 137 people aboard Thursday but was arrested with a suspected accomplice when the plane landed. There were no injuries. The hijacker seized a flight attendant and took her to the cockpit, where he threatened to blow up the plane unless it flew to Algeria, said Tunisian Interior Minister Abdallah Kallal. The airport in Algiers refused landing permission, and the pilot convinced the hijacker to allow him to continue on to Tunis, Alitalia said. S. Africa groups trade blame JOHANNESBURG, Soutr) Africa: The rival African National Congress and Inkatha Freedom Party blamed each other Thursday for two clashes in Natal province that killed six people. Another person was shot to death in a township near Johannesburg, and 2,000 mourners cheered calls for an interim government and self-defense units at a funeral for 10 people killed in the chronic black factional fighting.

Baker to meet with Palestine official today ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES AMMAN, Jordan: A Palestinian representative made a surprise trip to Jordan early today to meet with Secretary of State James A. Baker III as the U.S. official pressed for Palestinian participation in a Middle East peace conference. Hanan Ashrawi, one of three Palestinians who have met six times with Baker in the past, called U.S. officials traveling with him to request the meeting. She was traveling by car from Israel to Amman, the Jordanian capital. The meeting was arranged only hours after Baker warned the Palestinians that if they did not agree to participate in a peace conference, it might go ahead without them. Israel: U.S. favors Arabs JERUSALEM: Israel accused the United States Thursday of tilting to the Arabs in its eagerness to draw them to a Mideast peace conference, and said that could be an obstacle to peace. Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir claimed Washington had triggered "euphoria in the Arab world" by delaying Israel's request for housing loan guarantees for the sake of the peace conference. "And this fact cannot advance peace but rather distance it," Shamir said in a meeting with Rep. Wayne Owens, D- V General Information 721-2700 NEWS DEPARTMENTS Managing Editor, Thomas E.
