A public memorial service is scheduled at the school for Nov. 28. Syracuse U. ex-chancellor is dead at 78 THE ASMK.1ATED PRESS Mel Eggers served so well for so long. He will be sorely missed, but never forgotten, by all of us whose lives he touched with his humanity and wisdom," said John Palmer, dean of the Maxwell school Eggers is survived by his wife, Mildred; his brother Oscar of Prairie Village, Kan.; a daughter, Nancy Beilstein of Tustin, Calif.; and two sons, William of Pittsford and Rich- Says N.Y.C. rate could drop 10 SEWING THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DEWrTT Melvin Eggers, who served as Syracuse University's chancellor and president for 20 MACHINES . k A J NEW YORK - The nation's largest city could see "historic reductions" in major crimes includ $ 139; from . r v - "Those percentages are about as high as the city has ever had from one year to the next," Giuliani said on WNBC-TVb News Forum. He called the possible shift of 600 officers from street to desk duty a "worst-case scenario" that would not affect the downward trend. In the interview, which was taped Friday and aired yesterday, Giuliani also said Republican governor-elect George Pataki was still bent on on trying to "humiliate me and the mayoralty" in retribution for his having crossed party lines to endorse Democratic Gov. Mario Cuomo in the Nov. 8 election. Pataki refused to return Giuliani's post-election phone calls although he now says he would do so during "business hours" and last week asked for a meeting of numerous city officials, rather than a one-on-one meeting with the mayor. Giuliani, calling that another slap at him, refused to attend. Giuliani added that he thought it was time to set aside grievances of the campaign and focus on running the city and state. On crime, Giuliani said that by year's end there could be a more than 10-percent decline in crime, "and in categories like homicide, robbery and burglary, of 15, 16, 17, 18 percent" Police Department records show an overall drop of 10.3 percent for the first half of 1994, compared with the same period in 1993. Murder is down by almost 9 percent rape by 8.4 percent robbery by 12 percent, assault by 6.4 percent and burglary by 6.6 percent "If the trend continues for this year, there will be historic reductions in some of the major areas of crime," Giuliani said. But those figures would have to be sharply lower over the next several months to reflect the year-end levels predicted by Giuliani Q years until his retirement three years ago, died yesterday. He was 78. Eggers, a native of Fort Wayne, Ind., died at his home in Dewitt, a suburb of Syracuse, said the university. pM(M$H0?PE SPECTACULAR Over 200 Antique Toys!

"As one of my teachers and later as a colleague, Melvin Eggers set a standard of excellence that has helped me both as a professional and a person," said U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Donna Shalala, who received a Ph.D. from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs in 1970. "He taught me that good government and fiscal responsibility were inseparable and that a good administrator cares as much about people as policy. I will miss his friendship and his vision." Eggers, who received bachelor's and master's degrees in economics before earning his Ph.D. in economics from Yale in 1950, joined Syracuse University's staff that year as an assistant professor of economics. A decade later, he was named chairman of the economics department, and in 1970 was appointed provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs. In 1971, he assumed the posts of chancellor and president after spending four months as acting chancellor. Under Eggers' leadership, the total enrollment at the university increased by more than 3,000 students and the school's endowment tripled to $180 million. He oversaw more than 30 major building projects, including the construction of the Carrier Dome, where the school's sports teams play. Last month, the university dedicated Eggers Hall in his honor.

Charge: Baby sitters left tot at bar NEW YORK NOTES THE ASSOCIATED PRESS said he found the girl wandering alone in the bar at about 1 am. The girl's mother was not there. "I said to the little girl, 'Is anybody with you?' and she said, 'No, I'm looking for my mommy,' " Mahoney said. Police were called to the bar and went back to the child's home, but found no one there. Adamson and the 2-year-old were eventually found and Robles was located later. Both Adamson and Robles were arraigned on a charge of endangering the welfare of a child and then released. The 2-year-old was returned to her mother, but the 5-year-old was kept in child protective custody as police consider charges against the older child's mother, who was eventually located, police said.

AMSTERDAM A teen-age girl and a man who were babysitting two small children have been charged with child endangerment after they abandoned one of the children at a tavern, authorities said. Lorraine Adamson, 16, and Alex Robles, 30, are accused of leaving a 5-year-old girl at a bar Saturday in Amsterdam, Montgomery County, city police said yesterday. According to authorities, the pair was baby-sitting the 5-year-old and the child's 2-year-old half-sister when Adamson, apparently weary of caring for the older girl, sent Robles to drop her off at a bar where the child's mother was believed to be. Robles allegedly left the girl after they arrived at the American Lithuanian Club.

"JP A post-election poll released this week by Quinnipiac College, a Connecticut college that is trying to carve out a niche as a pollster in New York, found a sizable proportion of voters didn't have an opinion about the candidates who won. The poll said 22 percent didn't have enough information to have a favorable opinion of George Pataki, 52 percent lacked information about Attorney General-elect Dennis Vacco, and 44 percent haven't formed an opinion about Comptroller H. Carl McCall, who has been in office for nearly two years. "Gov.-elect Pataki remains an enigma among New York state voters, even after his victory," Quinnipiac pollster Betsey Todt said. Cuomo cited one of the poll's findings last week: The poll said only 25 percent of voters think Pataki will make good on his promise to cut state taxes. Another 'Dynasty' actor dabbles in N.Y. politics What is it about the old TV show Dynasty and New York politicians? Cuomo's former budget director, Dall Forsythe, was the son of John Forsythe, the actor who played Blake Carrington, the Carrington family patriarch on the show. Now John James, who played Carrington's long-suffering son-in-law, is showing up at political events with state Sen. Joseph Bruno, R-Brunswick, Rensselaer County. "He's been at a few different things with the senator in the last couple of years," said Margaret Law, a Bruno spokeswoman. Law said the two met after James moved to Washington County, near the senator's district. Law doesn't know what has prompted his interest in politics, or whether he may have plans to run for office himself someday. Governor-elect hounds tracks of ex-legislator To former state Assemblyman William Ryan, George Pataki is a nightmare that won't end. Ryan, a Democrat, lost his Hudson Valley seat in 1984 to then-Peekskill Mayor Pataki in a bruising, mudslinging campaign. He again lost to Pataki in 1986. Ryan has since settled in on the payroll of the Legislative Commission on State-Local Relations, an appointment the governor can't touch. But Ryan says he still gets the willies with the thought of Pataki running the state. "It's like it never ends," said Ryan. - ALBANY BUREAU 1-4:30 Sundays Pataki won't cut taxes $7 billion, Cuomo says ALBANY Gov. Mario M. Cuomo is starting to sound like a sore loser. Since his loss to Republican George Pataki Nov. 8, Cuomo has tried to avoid public appearances and statements. But when he has surfaced, he has made a point of attacking Pataki. This week, Cuomo called Republicans in Congress "storm troopers" for criticizing President Clinton, and used his two radio show appearances to say Pataki won't be able to cut state taxes. "We'll cut the taxes in New York by $7 billion? Forget about it ... No way that's going to happen, and everybody knows it," Cuomo said in his farewell interview on publiCra-dio's Capitol Connection show. "Travesty, parody, exaggeration, lurching to the right, a kind of pandering," Cuomo said, summing up Republican positions on issues like welfare and the death penalty. Listeners lose governor, bizarre radio moments The demise of the Capitol Connection with Cuomo and interviewer Alan Charlock, a State University of New York professor who become a media mini-mogul in the state, based on his association with Cuomo, will deprive public radio listeners of some bizarre moments. One such moment came during last week's farewell show. "Is there a hell?" Chartock asked Cuomo. "Yes." "What's it like?" "Well, it's not the hell that we were brought up to believe in, you know, in the era when you were a Roman Catholic spelled with a K," Cuomo explained without elaborating on the reference to the letter K. "Girls weren't allowed to wear patent leather shoes. You know about that, right?" "Yes, I'm aware of that," Chartock said. "And where you went to confession on Saturdays," Cuomo continued. "Oh, that's quite an ordeal, going to confession on Saturdays. You have it once a year Yom Kippur. Yeah, Yom Kippur. You atone. We do it every Saturday, preferably before you go out Saturday night What was your question?" Poll finds many voters have no opinion on Pataki Just who have New Yorkers elected this year, anyway? 1 7...., t. i BAY&BOWWIIiDOl . a ., ...-.ax. u.: m Call 442-66S0 or visit any OnBank & Trust Co. office for information or to apply. fi s f!i I'l' i N8VMNK Hub irniir itinrn" Mattress Sets & Trust Co. ityM Houmg LENOtH Membet FDIC 1 781 Spencerport Rd. 1 429-2090 cr 1-8D0-723-3302J B ...and we don't take American Express.
