TUESDAY, MARCH 24, 1998 2A . THE PALM BEACH POST Newsmakers Israel must make allowances fori peace. Rabin's widow says Palm keack Post Wire Reports Israel must make concessions to reach peace in the Middle East, says the widow of Yitzhak Rabin. "It's like a train stuck in the middle of the tracks. . . and we ask ourselves why it tJ - JM0" iif Srrr-'i :' W'y z ,jU jj-2fJ is not moving, Lean itauin said Sunday night. Since her j J husband's assassination in I 1995. Israelis and Palestinians THE ASSOCIATED PRESS m mjf have made no progress in resolving the occupation of disputed territories Israel captured in 1967, including the West Bank, she said. "The land was not meant for Israel to own," she said, "and we must give part of the land as a romnromise." She was in The fire that left this cabin a bumedout shell killed at least 11 people Sunday In Madisonburg, Pa. Pennsylvania cabin fire kills 11 friends Rabin Calif, court says Scouts can ban gays, atheists The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO The Boy Scouts are not a business covered by California's anti-discrimination laws and can exclude homosexuals and boys who don't believe in God, the state Supreme Court ruled unanimously Monday. One ruling could allow the Scouts to expel lf year-old twin brothers. They were barred by a Cub Scout den at 9 because they refused to profess a belief in God, were admitted by court order and recently qualified to become Eagle Scouts. A second ruling upheld the Scouts' rejection of an 18-year-old Eagle Scout's application to become a Scout leader after he disclosed his homosexuality in a newspaper interview. , The opinion by Chief Justice Ronald George stressed that the court was not judging the wisdom of the Scouts' policies, and carefully avoided the question of whether the Scouts, if covered by civil rights laws, would have the constitutional right to exclude gays and atheists. "This is the sort of victory that the Boy Scouts should be ashamed of," said Timothy Curran, 36, whose application to be an assistant scoutmaster in Contra Costa County in 1981 was the subject of one Taylor Flynn, an American Civil liberties Union lawyer for Orange County teenagers Michael and William Randall, urged charities and governments to withdraw financial support from the Boy Scouts, following the lead of Levi Strauss, United Way of San Francisco and the city of Chicago. Greg Shields, spokesman for the Boy Scouts of America, praised the ruling. "For 88 years we've taught the moral values of the Scout oath and law to American boys," he said. "Those who meet the standards of this membership organization are welcome to belong." The ruling contrasts with a decision March 2 by an appellate court in New Jersey that said the Boy Scouts and their local councils were "places of accommodation" with open membership and were covered by the state's civil rights law. That ruling, in favor of a gay scoutmaster, was the first by any appellate court in the nation against the Scouts' anti-gay policy. Classes were suspended Monday at line Mountain High so students could instead talk about the fire and the victims. Many spoke to members of the same county crisis team that offered consolation to Montoursville residents two years ago. On their way home, students wore memorial lapel ribbons in the school's colors, blue and gold, and left banners in the auditorium. "We will miss you guys. Hope you have a good trip,' read one. "It's going to take an entire village to soothe the soul of our entire community here today," Principal Alexander Menio Jr. said. Karen Wiest, the mother of two victims, 20-year-old David and 17-year-old Toby, said: "The community is very strong, and the people will pull together. They will get through this.' Officials had not released a list of the victims by Monday afternoon. The only word of identifications came from relatives. . The 11 friends arrived on the mountain tnasy night and were planning to go home Sunday, said John Wehry, the uncle of three victims. Police said a passerby saw nothing unusual at 3:10 a.m. Sunday. When officers arrived at 5:20 a.m., the cabin was engulfed in flames. All the victims apparently were overcome by smoke and died in bed without trying to escape. There was no evidence of an explosion, or that the victims had been drinking. Investigators say early evidence shows the victims were overcome by smoke and died while they slept. The Associated Press HERNDON, Pa. They headed north to the wild beauty of a cabin in the mountains, 11 young people, all friends looking forward to a weekend of cards, cooking and laughter. By daybreak Sunday, all of them were dead, caught in their beds by a swift fire. Little remained Monday of the two-story cabin on Madisonburg Mountain except a tin roof, bent in the middle and draped like a tent over the stubs of charred supports. The cause of the blaze was under investigation. The victims were in their late teens and early 20s, and all were from Herndon, a close-knit rural town in central Pennsylvania. Some were going to line Mountain High School; the rest had graduated and were in college or working. The reaction in their hometown where only 514 high school students live in an area almost as large as Philadelphia was grief and disbelief. Veterans of another tragedy the explosion of TWA Flight 800 in 1996 came to help console them. Of the 230 people killed in the disaster, 21 were from Montoursville, 35 miles from Herndon. Tucson, Ariz., to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of Israel and to accept an award from two Jewish groups. Earlier Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected a U S plan that calls for a gradual withdrawal of Israeli forces from 13 percent of the West Bank. Duvall takes top indie honors Robert Duvall's The Apostle took top honors at the Independent Spirit Awards this weekend by winning three prizes.

The Independent Spirit Awards are the top prizes given by the independent film community. Remember Diana with margarine? Britons gave a lackluster welcome Monday to tubs of margarine bearing the official logo of the Princess Diana memorial fund. The special tubs of Flora margarine are selling for the same price as the ordinary ones but replace the brand name with the word "thanks" and include Diana's looping signature in purple script The margarine, available for a limited time, marks the first time the fund has endorsed a consumer product Trustees hope the campaign will raise $400,000 for Diana's favorite causes. Meanwhile, the Royal Automobile Club denied news reports that it was planning to use Diana's death: in an Aug. 31 car crash to promote seat-belt use. She wasn't wearing a seat belt.
