IkimbHng tots D'Amato defends his activities Senator stumps for Dole while chairing Whitewater committee By SONYA ROSS The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The chairman of the Senate Whitewater Committee said there is no conflict between his dual roles as leader of the panel examining the Whitewater controversy and as promoter of Bob Dole's presidential bid. Sen. Alfonse D'Amato, R-N.Y., said he doesn't intend to stop campaigning for Senate Majority Leader Dole, R-Kan., while continuing to conduct hearings on the president and Hillary Rodham Clinton's involvement in the Whitewater real estate venture. "One has nothing to do with the other," D'Amato said. " I campaign for Senator Dole because I T SEXUAL HARASSMENT "Is this a legitimate inquiry into wrongdoing, or is this political harassment?" Leon Panetta White House official think he will be a great leader." The Clintons' supporters have accused congressional Republicans of trying to keep the Whitewater investigation alive long enough to make it an issue in the president's reflection campaign. D'Amato made it clear Sunday that he intends to ask Congress to extend the life of his committee for several months beyond its Feb. 29 expiration date. "When is enough going to be enough here?" White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta asked. "In the end, the public and everyone has to ask the question: Is this a legitimate inquiry into wrongdoing, or is this political harassment?" D'Amato, who campaigned door-to-door for Dole in New Hampshire Saturday, insisted, "The activity of the committee will not, in any way, be prejudicial towards the first family or anyone else because of what then- politics is or isn't." 'Republicans say they want to know whether Hillary Clinton, while working as a lawyer in Arkansas, had more extensive ties than she has claimed to Madison Guaranty, the failed savings and loan at the heart of the Whitewater real estate deal. Last week, the first lady said she would be willing to testify before Congress if her testimony would end the matter. D'Amato said she would not be forced to appear before his committee. Navy clears sailors of wrongdoing By The Associated Press SAN DIEGO — Sailors aboard a commercial airline flight on which a Navy cook allegedly gfoped and harassed an enlisted woman have been cleared of wrongdoing, a Navy official said Sunday. -Vice Admiral David B. Robinson, commander of the Naval Surface Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet, decided no disciplinary action would be taken after reviewing statements from other sailors on the flight, Navy spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Bruce Cole said. '. Investigators were trying to determine why about 20 other sailors on the flight did nothing to stop the incident. Last month, investigators recommended nine charges against the cook, Chief Petty Officer George Powell, who will be tried in a special court martial scheduled for Feb. 26. The charges include four counts of indecent assault, two counts of simple assault and one count each of drunk and disorderly conduct, showing disrespect for a commissioned officer and failure to obey a lawful order. Officials have said Powell, 49, was drunk on the Oct. 27 American Airlines flight from Virginia to California during^vhich he al- DAVIS TURNER/The Salina Journal Playing what they call "Power Rangers Hospital," sisters Journey, 6, and Jordan Stone, 5, take a tumble when they lose control of their "ambulance" along State Street. Because of a loose training wheel, Jordan spent as much time crashing the ambulance as delivering patients. Slots / Lawmakers vary on issue FROM PAGE A1 Rep. Joe Kejr, R-Brookville, has heard the pleas from charitable groups, but he's opposed to putting the slot issue to a vote. "Legalizing slots could increase the client load for some of these organizations," he said. "I understand their concerns, but I don't think we can let the good of the money ... overshadow how bad gambling is on society." He also hears the arguments: that Kansans will go elsewhere to! play slots if they can't play here. But he contends that if slots were allowed in Kansas, more people would be tempted to play because of increased access. "Somebody needs to take a stand and call something wrong wrong," he said. Rep. Carol Beggs, R-Salina, favors allowing residents to make the choice. V BALLOON COMPETITION "That's' something 'everybody needs to wrestle with within their own soul," Beggs said. Rep. Deena Horst, R-Salina, supported legislation last year that would have placed the issue on the ballot, primarily because racetracks contribute to charities and because the slots would be allowed only at racetracks. But Gov. Bill Graves, in his recent State of the State message, proposed that two slot casinos be allowed in each Kansas congressional district, in conjunction with tourist attractions. Horst isn't sure she'd support that many casinos. "I haven't firmly made up my mind/' she said. Keithley said all Kansans should be concerned about losing the racing industry. Gambling is a $22 million industry, he said, supporting 4,000 jobs and 500 horse and greyhound farms. British tycoon delays start of balloon voyage The Woodlands and Wichita Greyhound Park have contributed $6.7 million to charities. The charitable contribution, written into gaming contracts, is a percentage of profit, Keithley said. In years that the tracks aren't profitable, a minimum charitable contribution must be given. In addition, the racetracks pay taxes. Keithley said that while the track was making a profit, the Woodlands provided 40 percent of the annual budget for the Piper School District. The tracks also pay $40,000 a day in taxes to the state, and have contributed tens of millions of dollars to the state's Economic Development Initiative Fund, Keithley said. "If the racing industry doesn't survive, that money won't be there," Keithley said. TODAY'S SCRIPTURE 'Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?" — Matthew 8:26 ON THE legedly groped the woman, a 23- year-old 3rd class petty officer, who was sitting next to him. Powell said hi a hearing that his erratic behavior and alcoholism were caused by post-traumatic stress disorder brought on by combat in Vietnam. The female sailor has said she moved, but even then he would not leave her alone. Once, when she fell asleep, she awoke to find his hands on her breasts, crotch and legs. The senior Navy person aboard the flight was a chaplain who, when he learned of the behavior, intervened by sitting between the two. By The Associated Press MARRAKESH, Morocco — Foiled by unusually wet weather, British tycoon Richard Branson Sunday postponed starting his record-seeking, around-the-world balloon voyage for at least a week. Branson, the owner and CEO of Virgin Group, a British holding company that includes Virgin Airlines, had hoped to launch his 174- foot, $3 million helium and hot-air balloon "Virgin Global Challenger." But the liftoff was foiled by unfavorable atmospheric conditions — too much rain in a normally dry season. More Mexicans stopped at border By The Associated Press NOGALES, Mexico — American immigration authorities captured some 21,000 Mexicans trying \o : cross illegally into the United States in the first 19 days of the year, the El Heraldo newspaper reported Sunday. It quoted border patrol spokesman Rob Daniels as saying 19,400 were captured during thie entw-e month of January 1995. This time last year, only a trace amount of precipitation had fallen on Marrakesh, at the foot of the Atlas Mountains. "We've brought to Morocco a British team, a British balloon — and, I believe also, British atmospheric conditions," joked the 45- year-old adventurer. American millionaire Steve Fossett took off Jan. 8 from the Black HiUs in South Dakota, trying to beat Branson to the around- the-world record. Running into extreme cold and suffering equipment failure, Fossett and his balloon were forced down two days later in a field in New Brunswick.
