"I'm as pained and perplexed as the ; rest of America," Lieberman said on NBC. Before Hill's charges were explored in excruciating detail in three days of nationally televised hearings, Thomas had a majority of 55 senators 41 Republicans and 14 Democrats on his side. Monday night, ABC News reported that its head count showed 52 votes for Thomas. In the 100-member Senate, Thomas needs just 50 votes, because Vice President Dan Quayle would break a tie. Whatever the final tally, the Senate (Please see THOMAS, Page A-4) firmation and was one of his chief Judiciary Committee interrogators. Regarded as the swing Democratic senators are: David Boren of Oklahoma. Richard Bryan of Nevada. Alan Dixon of Illinois. J. James Exon of Nebraska. Wyche Fowler of Georgia. Bob Graham of Florida. Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut. Sam Nunn of Georgia. Harry Reid of Nevada. The Associated Press identified Fowler, Exon, Dixon and Lieberman as the Demo tions. Most senators remained out of sight Monday as phone messages jammed answering machines on Capitol Hill and telegrams piled up outside Senate offices locked for the federal holiday. For Thomas' nomination to fail, his opponents need to change the minds of a few swing senators. Nine Democratic senators who had declared their support for Thomas before the allegations came to light may be wavering. "It's really in the hands of a few Democratic senators," said Sen. Howell Heflin, D-Ala., who opposes Thomas' con ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES WASHINGTON With the searing interrogation of Judge Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill at an inconclusive end, the battle turns to the Senate, which will vote tonight on Thomas' nomination to the Supreme Court. A handful of undecided senators, confronted by a wave of public opinion and the quandary of whether to believe Thomas sexually harassed Hill, are the key to the 6 p.m. vote. Sen. John Danforth, R-Mo., Thomas' chief backer, called the vote a tossup. Hill, whose veracity, character and even sanity were questioned, appeared in Norman, Okla., where she teaches law, to denounce the attacks and repeat that her accusations of sexual harassment against Thomas were true. "It was suggested that I had fantasies, that I was a spurned woman and that I had a martyr complex," she said. "I will not dignify those theories except to assure you that I did not imagine the conduct to which I testified. I have been deeply hurt and offended by the nature of the attacks on my character." Hill, who decided early Monday not to testify again, declined to take any ques 1- ? , Use our ballot to track tonight's Senate vote on the confirmation of Clarence Thomas.

Grads may see few jobs again BY MARK SIEBERT The Cincinnati Enquirer College seniors preparing to throw their resumes into the employment ring could spend the school year ; battling the same dismal job prospects faced by last ' year's seniors. !

D-4-10 A spokeswoman for Lindner said she had no comment. Survey author Graef S. Crystal gave his editor an easy out. By including Chiquita Brands International Inc., another AFC investment, Lindner, in fact, deserves a $760,000 raise, Crystal said. The editor nixed that idea, since Chiquita was not among the largest 500 U.S. companies based on the value of firm's outstanding stock when Crystal designed the study. Each of the other six Cincinnati-area executives cited in the survey deserves a raise, the magazine says. BY PATRICIA GALLAGHER (The Cincinnati Enquirer By Cincinnati standards, financier Carl Lindner makes a lot of money. By Financial World standards, he makes too much. The Oct. 29 issue of the monthly business magazine, due out today, says Lindner should take a pay cut of $1.43 million this year. That's just for his job at Penn Central Corp., one of several companies he heads. He made $2.87 million there in 1990, for salary, bonus and stock options, Financial World says. Based on an analysis that looks at companies' size and performance, Lindner should get $1.44 million from Penn Central this year, the magazine says. Suggesting a cut in pay for Lindner is a tough call tougher still, considering his American Financial Corp. (AFC) is the majority owner of the magazine. Weather: Cloudy and cool today. High, 53.
