Clements: Bush will win South AUSTIN (AP) — Gov. Bill Clements, campaigning for Vice President George Bush in the largest Super Tuesday state, Monday predicted Bush would sweep Texas and carry the South in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination. "I don't think there's any question that George Bush will carry Texas handily," Clements said. While not predicting the outcome in each state, the governor said, "If you look at the entire South as a region, yes, I think George Bush will come out on top in the South." Clements also said former TV evangelist and GOP candidate Pat Robertson ^d said some "strange" things during Q, e campaign A pu blic opinion p<,ii pub _ lished Sunday by The Dallas Morning News and Houston Chronicle showed Robertson with 8 percent support in Texas, third behind Bush and Kansas Sen. Robert Dole. TRC urged to keep 5 percent AUSTIN (AP) — The director of an organization that campaigned relentlessly against pari-mutuel betting urged the Texas Racing Commission on Monday to hold fast to 5 percent as the state's share of the betting dollar. Sue Cox told the commission, which has just begun its work, that there were already "discussibns in some quarters on lowering the state's share of the pari-mutuel tax." The formula enacted by the Legislature would split each dollar four ways: 82 cents to winning bettors; 8 cents to track owners; 5 cents to the state; and 5 cents to owners of winning horses. Horse owners have complained that is not enough for them to make a profit.

Three judges to hear appeal AUSTIN (AP) — Three Dallas appeals court judges were chosen Monday to hear an appeal by 3rd Court of Appeals Justice Jim Brady of a public reprimand issued against him by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct. The commission issued its reprimand after Brady last year distributed a news release concerning a decision that he had authored in a libel case won by The Wall Street Journal. Negotiations held for Marcos' return MANILA, Philippines (AP) — The government said Monday it had sent emissaries to talk with exiled President Ferdinand Marcos, who has praised the Aquino government and said he was ready to negotiate his return to the Philippines. President Corazon Aquino said earlier Monday she would not yet let Marcos come home. But other officials hinted he may be allowed to return if he promises to behave and to return some of the billions of dollars he allegedly stole during his 20-year rule. In Honolulu, where Marcos has lived since his ouster in February 1966, a spokesman for the former president read a statement. It said in part: "We must recognize the achievement of the present administration in being able to survive this long when many countries, especially those belonging to the Third World, have floundered and gone under water. For this we must openly and candidly congratulate the Aquino government." The statement said Marcos was ready "to negotiate the details and conditions under which my family and I shall return to the Philippines for the salvation of the country from the bloody takeover by communistinsurgents." Marcos spokesman Lonnie Tan said Marcos had held meetings recently in Hawaii with Philippine Reps. Francisco Sumulong and said. "The meeting was between him and myself only. During the meeting, Mr. Marcos reiterated to me his desire to return to the Philippines at the earliest opportunity." Sumulong, Mrs. Aquino's uncle and majority floor leader of the House of Representatives, said he met Marcos separately in February. Sumulong said the former president's health was deteriorating and that he wanted to return home "possibly because he believes he is near the end of his life on Earth." In a statement issued through her spokesman Teodoro Mrs. Aquino confirmed she "had sent her relatives to Honolulu. "Go there and listen," Benigno quoted her as saying. "If we can listen to other people, why can't we listen to Mr. Marcos."

"Indeed there were negotiations. They came over here to talk to the president to discuss the subject of him returning to the Philippines," Tan said. He would not say what Marcos might offer to secure his return. Tanjuatco, a cousin of Mrs. Aquino, told reporters Monday that he met Marcos on Jan. 26.

LOMA LINDA, Calif. (AP) — A baby with a fatally underdeveloped brain died a day after she was removed from a life-support system that doctors had used to sustain her in hopes of transplanting her heart or liver, doctors said Monday. Evelyn Keys was born Feb. 20 in San Antonio, Texas, to Airman Todd Keys, 21, and his wife Judy, 22, who had hoped their baby's organs could be used to prolong the life of another child. She died at 10:35 p.m. Sunday, said Dr. Joyce Peabody, chief of neonatology at Loma Linda University Medical Center. "She died peacefully," the physician said. "Her heart valves, eyes and corneas have been donated. The parents are saddened, but still very pleased their daughter could give some gift of life.'' Evelyn was born with ancncephaly, a condition in which most or all of the brain is missing. She was part of Loma Linda's pioneering and controversial program designed to use the hearts and livers of such babies after the infants are declared brain-dead. When anencephalic infants continue to breath without artificial help, slow deterioration eventually makes their organs unsuitable for transplant. Under Loma Linda's guidelines, doctors use machines to keep the baby's organs functioning properly for up to seven days. If doctors declare the infant brain-dead within that time, the baby will be listed on national organ donor registries for possible transplants. But Evelyn was never declared brain-dead, so her heart and liver were not available for transplant. With her parents' permission, she was taken off the respirator on Saturday, Ms. Peabody said. The girl continued to breath on her own until Sunday night. Evelyn started showing signs of gradual deterioration Saturday, Ms. Peabody said. The hospital, 65 miles east of Los Angeles, is known for its frequent infant heart transplants. Thirteen babies have received new hearts at the center. Nine survived.
