Naval Observatory, Accu-Weather NewsBeat World El Salvador's rebels said hiding weapons • SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) — In a blow to the peace process, President Alfredo Cristiani is accusing leftist rebels of hiding weapons and says he will neither reduce nor purge the armed forces until the guerrillas fully disarm. The peace plan signed in January to end 12 years of bloody civil war began to collapse in recent months as each side accused the other of foot- dragging in complying with an Oct. 31 demobilization deadline. Cristiani repeatedly insisted that he would not agree to a U.N. recommendation that the deadline be extended until Dec. 15, seeking to pressure the leftist Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front to hasten its dissolution as a military force. Then, in a surprise announcement Wednesday, the rightist president accepted the deadline ;-.xtention. But he also accused ihe rebels of underreporting to the U.N. the extent of their arsenal, which is to be destroyed under the accords. Nation Perot has spent $36 million on race • WASHINGTON (AP) — Ross Perot has dropped $36.7 million of his own money on his presidential bid this month, and already has spent more than President Bush and Bill Clinton are allowed to spend on their entire campaigns, according to campaign finance reports. Reports that Perot's campaign filed with the Federal Election Commission show the Texas billionaire forked over another $10.7 million of his fortune to his campaign between Oct. 15 and Oct. 26. The additional transfers bring to about $36.7 million the amount Perot has spent since re-entering the race Oct. 1 — Ihe substantial portion of which has gone to a national advertising blitz unseen in politics and rivaling even some of the most aggressive corporate endeavors. Housing project a source of pride • CHICAGO (AP) — While some Chicago housing projects are so crime-ridden that criii<-<: want to tear them down or can in the National Guard, the city can point to at least one where tenants live in harmony and take pride in their homes. At Lake Park Place, a city experiment has been under way for a year in which carefully selected welfare recipients are mixed with working people so that those earning a living can serve as examples to their neighbors. Lake Park Place is being closely watched by other public housing agencies. 'Little House' books said ghostwritten • KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved "Little House" books about life on the American frontier in the late 1800s were ghostwritten by her daughter, a professor contends. William Holtz, a University of Missouri professor of English, credits Rose Wilder Lane with everything that make the children's books "stand up and sing." "I am saying the daughter substantially rewrote it, excising parts, writing dramatic themes, changing dialogue. If this isn't ghostwriting, what is?" Holtz said in a telephone interview from Columbia on Wednesday. CIA monitored Iraqi purchases • WASHINGTON (AP) — The CIA was closely monitoring Iraq's technology purchases in the United States before the Persian Gulf War and knew ~""iv of the items were destineu 101 u:e Iraqi defense industry, documents and interviews show. Congressional investigators are trying to determine whether the CIA passed on its information to the Commerce Department, which approved $1.5 billion in exports to Iraq in the 1980s. Commerce ruled that State Amnesia victim iD'd after TV show • RICHARDSON, Texas (AP) — A woman who had suffered from amnesia for almost six months has been identified as a missing Canadian woman only hours after she was featured on a national television show. Shortly after NBC's Unsolved Mysteries told the story of the woman on Tuesday night, people began calling the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to tell them that the woman w.ho had been identified here as Sandra or Carole Martin was actually Carole Anne Rozak. Dallas schools post record-low SAT scores • DALLAS (AP) — Scholastic Aptitude Test scores for the Dallas school district's class of 1992 are the worst in 20 years. The combined average score for last year's seniors fell to 767 out of a possible 1,600 total. The class of 1991's score was 793, the previous all-time low record. In Dallas, the larger drop came on the verbal section of the test, where students' scores fell by 15 points to 359 out of a possible 800. On the math section, Dallas' average dropped by 11 points to 408. Bush gaining ground as Nov. 3rd closes in WASHINGTON (AP) — President Bush, like Michael Dukakis four years ago, is closing in on his opponent in the polls. A few more days will tell whether he suffers Dukakis' fate on Election Day or engineers a stunning comeback. "The Republicans are starting to come home to Bush. That's why you see the national polls tightening up," Michigan pollster Ed Sarpolus said Wednesday. "In a race with a newcomer challenger running against an incumbent president, this is to be expected" Slate-by-state surveys, more important in a presidential race, still show Bill Clinton the favorite. The Arkansas governor leads in more than enough states to get the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House. Bush, on the other hand, has comfortable leads in but a handful of states. Still, several polls released Wednesday showed the first evidence in weeks of Bush moving up, and private surveys indicated a tightening race in some of the big states the president must wrest from Clinton to win. With five days to go, Bush projected confidence. "Believe me, we are going to win," he said in Ohio. ABC and NBC surveys among likely voters gave Clinton a seven point lead over Bush, with Ross Perot a distant third, a gap consistent with polls conducted by both the Bush and Clinton campaigns. A Gallup tracking poll for CNN-USA Today showed a much closer race — Clinton leading by just two points among what Gallup termed the most likely voters. But the president was still below 40 percent in national surveys, and was running third when voters were asked which candidate was best equipped to run the economy. His standing is a virtual mirror image of Dukakis' four years ago. Tracking polls five days before the 1988 election showed the Democrat within seven or eight points of B ush, and Dukakis aides were boasting of a "surge" much like Bush aides did this week. Dukakis ultimately lost the popular vote by 8 percentage points and won just 10 states. ...Older (Continued from Page 1A) about the low interest rates that are cutting into investment income to broader issues of the future of their children and grandchildren. "I'm a Democrat, but I can be objective when I tell you that when they go into that voting booth, many of them are going to be hurting," said Amadeo Trinchitella, 74, a New York City native who now lives in Deerfield Beach.' 'And a lot of them my age are going to be thinking about their families, all the children who have lost jobs." Bush surprisingly carried Trinchitella's area, Florida's southeast coast, in 1988, despite its traditional reputation as a Democratic stronghold of liberal Northeast retirees. Bush's Oct. 3 visit to Clearwater appeared to have left many undecided. Casual interviews with two dozen residents found only two committed to Bush.
