Arrangements for repairs were awaiting the return of building owner Bill Smith, who was out of town. "It's not something you'd want to leave long-term," Peterson said of the damage. "There's going to be a lot of heat loss but it is tolerable." . Elsewhere in the city there were other reports of roof damage due to the high winds. Brutally cold temperatures Thursday gripped the county and the rest the state, the product of a giant dip in the jet stream that reached south to Texas, said Rob Cox, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Wichita. The shift left a trough behind the jet stream that filled in with super cold arctic air and wind gusts reaching as high as 55 miles an hour. Wind chills dropped as low as 40 degrees below zero, Cox said. The temperature without wind chill at midday Thursday in Salina was about 5 degrees, the same as the overnight low. Salina received • eight-hundredths of an inch of precipitation from rain and sleet that fell during the night. The temperature broke a record of 10 degrees as the lowest recorded high for the Jan. 18 date, Cox said. The bitter cold prompted all Saline County public schools to cancel classes, along with the Abilene, Solomon and Lindsborg school districts. Districts will decide this morning whether to have classes today. "If we do go ahead, I'm really urging parents to do what they can . to be sure, if they send their kids walking, that all skin areas are covered, because there will still be a bitter wind chill," said Salina Superintendent Gary Norris. Norris said he decided Thursday to call off classes because of the danger to students walking to school. When he was a superintendent in Hibbing, Minn., from TOM DORSEYmie Salina Journal.

"My fear was after all the mild weather we have had, that our students walking to school would not get enough skin covered," Norris said. "My experiences in Minnesota told me that at 40 below, flesh would freeze." Bob Goodwin, Southeast of Saline school superintendent, had the same concern, plus he was worried about the possible danger of a bus or car having engine trouble on the way to school. A wind gust Thursday morning overturned an empty semi tractor-trailer on Interstate 70, just bound lanes for about an hour, but the driver, Daniel Yochers, 31, Manhattan, wasn't hurt. Saline County Extension Director Carl Garten said some Saline County ranchers lost a few young calves overnight to the driving rain and cold temperatures. And with high winds Thursday, farmers began worrying about wind erosion in wheat fields. Frost damage to the wheat was actually expected to be minimized by the moist soil, said extension agent Tom Maxwell. mains higher than the wind chill, which protects the plants. Still; with many fields planted late and showing little growth, the outlook for some of the crop isn't good, he said. And in fields that were burned to remove crop residue, there isn't anything holding the, soil in place. The good news: Today should be warmer. Highs should be 15 to 20, with winds from the south at 5 to 15 mph. Saturday is expected to be mostly cloudy with highs in the lower 30s. Clinton aide tells of unexpectedly finding first lady's documents She says records appeared one day in place where she had often looked for them By KAREN GULLO The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Adding further intrigue to the discovery of Hillary Rodham Clinton's legal billing records, a presidential aide testified Thursday the documents appeared on a table in the White House residence two years after investigators subpoenaed them. Carolyn Huber told the Senate Whitewa- «* Salina Journal Published seven days a week, 365 days a year at 333 S. Fourth, P.O. Box 740, • Salina, Kan. 67402,'by Salina Journal Inc.

She said they were folded but in plain view, on a pile of books on the corner of a table where they hadn't been days earlier. "They appeared there," Huber testified. "I thought it had been left there for me to take down to put in the file — you know, to file in the filing that I do." She said she was certain the records had not been there earlier. "I don't think I would have missed them," she said. Huber testified the book room was main- ly for the Clintons and their guests, but was accessible to herself and some other White House aides. The room is next door to Hillary Clinton's office in the residence. President Clinton, in an interview with U.S. News and World Report, said Thursday that people routinely walked through the room to get to the White House gym. "That's where if we had things like gifts or toys, or things we didn't have a place to store, they were put in there." Clinton said. "It was just all kinds of stuff crammed in there. And I don't think there was even an attempt to try to sort through what was there or not ... until some of the people who were typing Hillary's book started working there in the fall." Committee chairman Alfonse D'Amato, who has previously rejected calls to ask Hillary Clinton to testify, said the testimony may prompt him to submit written questions to the first lady. The new details about how Huber discovered the records in a room sometimes visited by President and Hillary Clinton added a fresh twist to the story of the documents. Huber's testimony prompted some Republicans to suggest the Clintons may have tried to hide the records. Sen. Lauch Faircloth, R-N.C., said the committee might "likely have a very serious case of obstruction of justice." Richard Ben-Veniste, the committee's Democratic counsel, urged caution. He said that obstruction is "not a term to throw around" lightly. But he said the, committee had a right to determine "whether there were any shenanigans" with.the documents. White House lawyer Jane Sherburne said there was no attempt to hide them. "If we had found these documents two years ago we would have turned them over, no question."' The records detail Hillary Clinton's legal work in the mid-1980s for an Arkansas savings and loan owned by the first family's Whitewater, business partner. • correction notice On page 3 of the Sears Thursday, January 18 advertising section you may have received, there is a printing error.
