Collins Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, now retired from the U.S. Academy Saturday. Schwarzkopf told the children that he Army, signs autographs for Kristen Lindquist, 3, and her had not intended to honor requests for autographs, but he brother Shane, 4, during a parade at the West Point Military was taken with their courage in approaching him. 'Important' captives may be last freed ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES BAALBEK, Lebanon: A Shiite Muslim leader with close ties to hostage-takers hinted Saturday the most "important" captives may be held until the final stages of a proposed hostage-for-prisoner swap. Hussein Musawi suggested that American journalist Terry Anderson and Church of England envoy Terry Waite have value as bargaining chips, and their release is unlikely until Hezbollah cleric Sheik Abdul-Karim Obeid is freed by Israel. Hussein Musawi also suggested only one of five Israeli servicemen missing in Lebanon may still be alive, and that two German hostages might not be part of a deal to free the Westerners. The comments were the latest developments in efforts to arrange a comprehensive swap involving the Westerners, missing Israeli servicemen and more than 300 Arab prisoners held by Israel. Kidnapped explorers freed ANKARA, Turkey: Five explorers abducted while searching for Noah's Ark said Saturday they had left a trail of dollars, hoping to help efforts to rescue them from Kurdish rebel captors. Americans Ronald Wyatt, Marvin Wilson and Richard Rives were among five Westerners released unharmed Friday after a three-week ordeal. A fourth ex-hostage, a Briton, said the abductors gave the men separatist propaganda and explained their organization's goals and activities. Currency reassurance made APELDOORN, Netherlands: Finance ministers of the European Community agreed Saturday that stronger nations should not be allowed to rush ahead of weaker ones to form a monetary union. The ministers of the 12-nation trading bloc sought to dispel fears of Italy, Ireland, Greece and others that they might be left outside the planned economic and monetary merger. "The European Community, as a family, must stick together," Dutch Finance Minister Wim Kok said. Integrated cleanup held JOHANNESBURG, South Africa: In a rare display of racial unity, residents of a white suburb and a neighboring black township joined forces Saturday to clean up litter in the black area. The cleanup, which netted 400 bags of garbage, was aimed at easing tension caused by the construction of a wall between the black and white neighborhoods in June. Dickens coverup alleged LONDON: The long-accepted story of Charles Dickens' death may have been invented to cover up his love affair with the actress Nelly Ternan, a British author says. Claire Tomalin, Ternan's biographer, wrote in a newspaper Saturday that said there is evidence Dickens did not collapse at home, but during a visit with Ternan. Dickens fell ill on June 8, 1870, and it is believed he died the next day at Gad's Hill, his country home. More world news, Pages A-6-7. Sunday Morning (9 a.m., Channels 7, 9).

Comptroller faces ethics questions ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES WASHINGTON: Comptroller of the Currency Robert L. Clarke, the nation's top bank regulator, has agreed to put his holdings in a blind trust and comply with conflict-of-interest laws, the federal Office of Government Ethics said Saturday. Ethics office director Stephen D. Potts said the comptroller had received inaccurate advice and an incomplete review of his financial disclosure statements by the Treasury Department's ethics officials. Dead woman kept 18 months NEW YORK: Five grown children kept the remains of their mother in her bedroom more than 18 months after she died, filling the room with presents and flowers in the belief that she would be resurrected, police said Saturday. Blanche Riley, 56, died in March, 1990, in a second-floor bedroom in the two-story house she shared with her five children and a grandson in Brooklyn, said Sgt. Tina Mohrmann. A niece in Florida grew suspicious about the family's claim that she was unavailable and had been sleeping a lot, Mohrmann said. She flew to see her aunt, found the remains and called police. Detectives went to the house Saturday Old age may turn Lexington to scrap THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PENSACOLA, Fla. Time is doing what a Japanese torpedo and kamikaze pilots couldn't put the USS Lexington out of commission. But even old age may not sink the battle-scarred aircraft carrier that earned the nickname "Blue Ghost" in World War II. Japanese propagandist Tokyo Rose repeatedly claimed the Lexington, painted solid blue-gray instead of striped camouflage common to other U.S. carriers, had been sunk. Capt. William Kennedy, the Lexington's 31st and last commanding officer, is preparing the 49-year-old ship for what he hopes will be its future as a floating museum. Current orders are to tow the Lexington to Philadelphia for stripping in early December. Decommissioning is set for Nov. 8. The Lexington ended operations in February because of engine problems too expensive to fix. The last pilot to land on its deck was Lt. Kathy Owens. The Cincinnati native flew a C-2 cargo jet to register landing number 493,760, a world record for carriers unlikely to be broken, Kennedy said. Rembrandt paintings united WASHINGTON: Two Rembrandt paintings of Lucretia, the Roman heroine whose rape prompted her to commit suicide, are united in a new exhibition at the National Gallery of Art for the first time since they were completed more than 300 years ago. Doctor repays college debt HAMPTON FALLS, N.H.: A doctor who sold cars and blood to get through medical school auctioned off his antique car collection Saturday to benefit future generations of struggling Harvard medical students. Dr. Terry Bennett, a family practitioner in Rochester, traveled the world to expand his collection of rare cars, which brought $4 million. Bennett said someone paid for his education and "this is an attempt to even the score." Atomic waste dump opposed ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.: About 200 people protested Saturday as a U.S. Senate committee hearing here discussed the opening, possibly within a month, of the federal Energy Department's Waste Isolation Pilot Project in New Mexico. The project is likely to become the first permanent home for about 2 of the nation's atomic wastes from building nuclear bombs. New Mexicans said they were suspicious of Washington's assurances that the project was safe. More nation news, Pages A-8-16. Health, science, Pages A-18-20.
