Corpse may tell who shot Huey Long ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES The remains of Carl Austin Weiss are to be exhumed today in Baton Rouge, La., by forensic scientists hoping to shed light on the 1935 assassination of Sen. Huey Long. Some historians doubt the "official" version from Long's bodyguards, who said Weiss walked up to Long and shot him without a word. The guards riddled the 29-year-old physician's body with 61 bullets. Others believe Weiss hit Long after a brief argument. Then, he drew his pistol to defend himself as the guards pulled out their weapons. They say a wild shot from the guards' fusillade killed Long. Scientists will analyze the angle that the bullets struck Weiss to see if he was in position to shoot Long or if a bullet could have passed through Weiss and struck the senator.

And although Kurdish rebels control a large crescent-shaped slice of northern Iraq, Saddam's threat continues to hang like a black cloud over the Kurds' concrete-block cities and verdant mountain 4,000 others to squelch Kurdish nationalism. The Kurds face a tough winter. Unemployment is rife and food is scarce. U.N. officials estimate that 400,000 Kurds remain homeless; Kurdish leaders estimate at least half a million. The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, or UNHCR, is providing timber, sheets of iron, and door and window frames for 62,000 dwellings. Other organizations are supplying material for thousands more. But the program only began recently. U.N. officials acknowledge that thousands of Kurds will likely spend the winter crowded into tents warmed with heaters. villages.
