Clinton and others remember the late Texas congresswoman for 'her jewel of a voice' By The New York Times HOUSTON — In front of President Clinton, a packed Baptist church of 1,500 people and hundreds more who listened to loudspeakers outside in a soft drizzle, Barbara Charline Jordan of Texas was remembered Saturday as "an American original and a national treasure" and was eulogized by her pastor as a woman who intuitively "understood where to invest her hope." . The body of the former congresswoman, the first black elected to the House from Texas since Reconstruction, was brought home Saturday to Houston's Fifth Ward neighborhood, where she grew up. She died Wednesday at the age of 59. The two-hour service at the Good Hope Missionary Baptist Church was punctuated both by repeated applause and soft murmurs of "Amen," as when actress Cicely Tyson said of Jordan: "If I were sitting on a porch across from God, I would thank him for sending you to us." Former Gov. Ann Richards of Texas, who, along with Clinton, was one of eight people to offer reflections on Jordan's life, praised her fight for civil rights and her often-eloquent celebrations of the U.S. Constitution by saying of the former congresswoman and government scholar: "There was simply something about her that made you proud to be a part of the country that produced her." People started to line up at the church at 5 a.m., and many who were forced to remain outside nonetheless hailed the event as a significant one in their own lives or those of their children. "This is a chance for him to do something historical, a chance to honor someone great in our community," said Delvin Kendrick, a pharmacist, clutching the hand of his 10-year- old son, Shantez, in one of his own hands and a video camera in the other. Despite the gathering of mourners and the presence of Jordan's open coffin, the service T ENVIRONMENT The Associated Press Three women hug over the casket bearing former congresswoman Barbara Jordan just before her funeral Saturday in Houston. Jordan died Wednesday in Austin. was described repeatedly as a celebration, and there were many moments of humor. The audience dissolved into long laughter and cheers when Mayor Bob Lanier of Houston, noting Clinton's affection for Jordan, said of him: "The president must have some attachment for strong women." Clinton, in his remarks, told the audience that he had been nervous enough to be giving a speech on race and the Constitution at the University of Texas last fall, on the same' day of the Million Man March. But he said he had become even more nervous when he noted Jordan's presence in the audience. "I think it was the nearest experience on this earth to the pastor giving a sermon with God in the audience," Clinton said. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who followed Mickey Leland and Craig Washington in holding Jordan's congressional seat, remembered her "jewel of a voice" and said she had been "particularly charged to hold up the ethical litmus test for politicians in America, and she was not afraid to do so." Jordan was buried wearing the Presidential . Medal of Freedom, the country's highest civilian honor, which Clinton gave her in 1994. The president said, "Barbara always stirred our national conscience." The congregation Saturday included members of Jordan's family, and her debate coach at Texas Southern University, Dr. Thomas P. Freeman, as well as a host of Cabinet members and current and former members of Congress. The church was full, and the sound of the loudspeakers outside carried for several blocks. Freeman amused the audience with recollections of how he had encouraged Jordan to speak in her deep, distinctive voice and elaborate syntax. But he also stirred them at the end, with many people breaking into tears, when he said simply: "Barbara, Barbara, Barbara, we thank you for just being Barbara." Officials say oil spill less serious than feared But some birds have been seen crawling ashore with oil-covered wings By The Associated Press SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. — A barge carrying 4 million gallons of heatirig oil leaked a small amount Saturday, a day after it ran aground in a storm. Officials believed an environmental disaster had been averted. Aided by clear skies and weakened winds, the Coast Guard prepared to pump oil from the 340-foot barge and refloat it Sunday. A sheen of oil about 3 miles long and several hundred yards wide was moving southeast from Rhode Island's southern coast into the Atlantic Ocean. The oil was too thin to be skimnied or dispersed with chemicals, so officials planned to let it evaporate and the Coast Guard placed booms to keep it off the beach. It was not known exactly how much had seeped out. "It's still leaking, which we don't like, but the emergency response is finished," said Gov. Lincoln Almond, who flew over the barge with federal Transportation Secretary Federico Pena and members of Rhode Island's con- gressional delegation. The barge stopped just off Trustom Pond National Wildlife Refuge, midway along eight saltwater ponds that are breeding grounds for fish and migration stops for millions of water fowl. Some birds could be seen crawling ashore with oil on their wings, but the exact environmental impact was not expected to be known for some time, state officials said. The barge, which has 14 compartments, did not break up, and oil was believed to be leaking from only two of them. Home heating oil is much lighter than other fuels, such as crude oil, and easily evaporates into the air. The Exxon Valdez spilled 11 million gallons of crude oil off Alaska. "It seems to me the question is: Could the thing be worse? The answer is yes, it could be worse," said U.S. Sen. John Chafee, whose summer home is about 200 yards up the beach from the spill. En route from New York's Staten Island to Providence, the barge ran aground Friday night after its tugboat caught on fire and the six- member crew evacuated in 60 mph winds, 15-mile waves and driving rain. The Coast Guard rescued them. CROSCILL BONUS One week only! Receive a comparably sized sheet set with the purchase of a regular-price Croscill comforter set.
