By The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — As mourners streamed by a memorial to the victims of a high school cafeteria shooting, investigators on Saturday combed through the young suspect's home, finally cleared of bombs and bodies. Police collected evidence from the home of 15-year-old Kip Kinkel, accused of killing his parents and then opening fire on classmates at Thurston High School. At the school, the day dawned gray and drizzly as the crowd of TV cameras and satellite trucks thinned. But the chain-link fence in front of the school grew more colorful, stuffed with flower bouquets, cards, teddy bears, balloons, poems and prayers. Halfway along the 100-yard fence, some students set up a "press-free zone" with yellow crime-scene flagging, hoping to escape the barrage of TV cameras. "This is a place for people to come and mourn. They need some privacy," said Jason Bower, 15, a freshman at the school. East up the McKenzie River Valley in the affluent rural neighborhood where the Kinkels lived, neighbors were back in their homes after Lane County authorities lifted the evacuation imposed following the discovery of bombs apparently made by Kip Kinkel.

Investigators found bomb- making instructions that had been downloaded from the Internet. . Jamon Kent, Springfield schools superintendent met Saturday with teachers and counselors to plan how to deal with students' grief and fears when school opens on Tuesday.

President addresses violence in society j Clinton targets today's culture that desensitizes 'our children to violence' By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Clinton on Saturday attributed a string of deadly school shootings, the latest this week in Springfield, Ore., to "a changing culture" of violent movies and video games that teach children they can lash out with guns — and with impunity. He coupled an expression of the nation's grief with a plea to Congress to pass his juvenile crime bill, which includes a provision banning violent juveniles from buying, guns for life. "We must face up to the fact that these (school shootings) are more than isolated incidents," Clinton said in his weekly radio address. "They are symptoms of a changing culture that desensitizes our children to violence," he said, not- C3et away irom it all ana get to know each other all over again.

Ohio • Salina 1-800-7^8-7205 • 823-2220: ****************************** ing that most teen-agers have seen hundreds of murders on television, in movies and in video games before they even graduate from high school. On Thursday, a shooting rampage left two students dead and 22 others wounded in Springfield. The suspect, 15-year-old Kip Kinkel, also is accused of shooting his parents to death in their home. In a series of schoolhouse shootings that began last October in Pearl, Miss., 14 teachers and students have died and about three dozen have been injured. The "startling similarity" of the incidents left him "profoundly troubled," Clinton said, but alsp presented Congress with an urgent argument for acting on his anti-crime proposals. Government alone cannot solve the problem, he said. "We must all do more ... to teach our children the unblinking distinction between right and wrong ...," Clinton said.
