At that angle, the missiles would have been in the radar blind spot of the Stark's Phalanx system, a Gatling-gun style weapon used as a last-ditch defense against missiles, the report said.

It also found no evidence indicating the equipment on the Stark failed to work as designed. The report, based on a trip to the gulf by four committee aides a week after the May 17 attack, was signed by Reps. Aspin, William L. Dickinson of Alabama, the senior Republican on the panel, and Bill Nichols, D- the chairman of the investigations subcommittee. Aspin stressed that the report could not "allocate responsibility on board the ship" and must be considered preliminary because the committee did not speak to the frigate's four principal officers.

They are being investigated by a Navy review board and refused to be interviewed on the advice of their attorneys. However, Capt. G.R. Brindel did (Continued from Page 1) tion of The Wichita Eagle-Beacon. Miller said the accusation made him search for the letters, which he found Tuesday night and mailed Wednesday to all the lawyers in the case, with a cover letter stating that those were the only two Stephan sent him in November 1985.

Neither letter that Miller said he found Tuesday was included in the documents Stephan gave to the federal magistrate. The two letters Miller said he found, which appear to be in Stephan's handwriting, both are critical of Miller for his actions during the time the settlement was disclosed in November 1985. At that time, Stephan said publicly he had asked Miller to disclose where Miller had obtained $12,000 to help pay the out-of-court settlement, but Miller had refused. One letter, postmarked Nov. 14, states: "Dear Vern.

Why would you let them do this to me and my family. I hope you know I would kick their ass all over the block if It was you. By the way, Marcia got $12,000. Bob." The second letter, postmarked Nov. 19, (about the time Stephan withdrew from the Kansas gubernatorial race), states: "Dear Vern.

I will pray that God will forgive you for what you have done. Bob." In the papers filed Friday, Phelps accused Stephan and his lawyer, Assistant Attorney General Carl Gallagher, of falsifying one letter and deliberately withholding copies of the two "genuine" letters. "All appearances are that the letter is manufactured and has been inserted as false evidence and to perpetrate a fraud upon this Court," the documents contend. "It appears: Feeling confident that the two genuine letters from Stephan to Miller would not surface, Stephan and-or Mr. Gallagher falsely manufactured a third letter and deceitfully withheld the two genuine letters from the Court and counsel." Phelps' motion also states that Gallagher told a Kansas City Times reporter earlier this week that a letter Miller wrote to Stephan was Earthquake shakes up Missouri Stephan ST.

LOUIS (AP) A light earthquake measuring 4.1 on the Richter scale rattled pictures on walls Saturday in southeast Missouri, but no damage was reported, the National Weather Service said. The tremor was centered about 130 miles south of St. Louis near New Madrid, along the Mississippi River. The area is on the New Madrid Fault, where the nation's strongest series of recorded earthquakes occurred in 1811-1812. Saturday's light earthquake was not related to one measuring 5.0 on the Richter scale that occurred Wednesday in southeastern Illinois and was felt in 15 states and the Canadian province of Ontario, said Sean-Thomas Morrissey, a geophysical instrumentation consultant at St.

Louis University. Saturday's tremor, located about five kilometers below the earth's surface, rattled pictures from walls at Kennett, which is located about 40 miles southwest of New Madrid, but no injuries were reported, the National Weather Service said. It was felt in New Madrid, Kennett and Portageville. Geological survey scientists said the quake occurred about 4:17 p.m. and was centered about five miles southwest of New Madrid.

Wednesday's quake, centered near Lawrenceville, caused no major damage. The Richter scale is an open-ended gauge of energy released by 1 an earthquake as measured by ground motion recorded on a seismograph. Every increase of one number means that the ground motion is 10 times greater. A quake with a magnitude of 4 can cause moderate damage in a populated area, a quake of magnitude 5 considerable damage. submit a written statement in which he said he left the bridge before the attack "to make a head even though the ship had been warned by the AWACS when the Iraqi plane was 200 miles away.

He left the bridge minutes before the attack. In his absence, the ship's officers failed to take several actions that might have prevented the attack or allowed the ship to shoot down the missiles, the report said. The captain's departure from the helm during the plane's approach is a serious matter because of a fundamental precept of military command: that officers are ultimately responsible for things that happen under their command, including the performance of those they lead. postmarked Nov. 15, 1905.

However, the "You are a liar" letter, which was ostensibly a response to Miller's letter, is dated one day earlier Nov. 14. In submitting those apparent contradictions, Phelps asked the court to give her more time to collect additional information from Stephan. She also asked the court to impose sanctions on Stephan in response to "these remarkable developments." In her motion, Phelps argues that the existence of three letters contradicts Stephan's sworn testimony given in April of this year when he testified that he had sent only two handwritten notes to Miller following the settlement disclosure. Friday Stephan's secretary said he was "out for the day on personal business" and could be reached.

Gallagher also could not be reached for comment. Stephan's spokesman, Nell Woerman, did not return telephone calls. The disputed letter, dated Nov. 14, 1985, is addressed to Miller, who represented Stephan in a sexual harassment lawsuit filed in 1982 by Marcia Tomson, a former secretary in Stephan's office. Miller helped settle that lawsuit in March 1985, but Tomson sued Stephan again on Nov.

19, 1985, accusing him of violating terms of the secret settlement and defaming her. Phelps alleges that the letter was "manufactured" to aid Stephan's defense and support his recent attacks on Miller's integrity, as well as "to create false documents and testify falsely. If this is the case, two officers of this Court have committed serious ethical and other misconduct." Stephan lost a legal battle 1 to prevent disclosure of four letters between himself and Miller. U.S. Magistrate G.

Thomas Van Bebber of Topeka ordered the letters produced for his inspection and later ruled that the correspondence must be given to Tomson's lawyers. Although Stephan has said under oath that he sent Miller two handwritten letters in November 1985, he gave Van Bebber only one letter in his handwriting. Briefly 59 show crafts at YWCA fair This is a weekend dedicated to arts and crafts at the Salina YWCA. The second annual See and Sell craft show was from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Saturday and runs from noon to 5 p.m. today at the YWCA, 651 E. Prescott. There were 59 exhibitors selling their homemade goods Saturday. The show enhances the Smoky HIll River Festival, which began Friday and ends today at Oakdale Park, sald Leadell Ediger, who worked at the craft show and was an exhibitor.

"There is an art exhibit this weekend at the festival, and we have a craft exhibit," she said. Ediger, who was selling quilts, said she sold many Saturday. Calvin and Linda Schleseners from Wakarusa were selling ceramic ducks, geese, dogs and chickens. Linda Schlesener said she sold items in "spurts" and thought the hot temperatures slowed sales. Other exhibits included homemade toys, pottery, baskets, crossstitched items and wall hangings.

Motorcyclists injured in accident RUSSELL Three people were injured in a double motorcycle accident west of Dorrance Saturday morning after the two vehicles struck each other before skidding more than 100 feet.

The driver, Michael McGinnis, 22, Hays, and a passenger, Katrina Brumley, 18, Russell, were both in stable condition at Russell City Hospital Saturday night, a hospital nursing supervisor said. Both suffered cuts and bruises. The driver of the second motorcycle, Dennis Huck, 22, Hays, was treated at the Russell hospital. A spokeswoman for the Kansas Highway Patrol in Norton said both vehicles were heading west on Interstate 70 when the cycles made contact, overturned and slid about 126 feet. They came to rest on the roadway.

The accident occurred about 2:10 a.m. a half mile west of Dorrance. Runaway train cars block Ohio Motorists were stopped for about 30 minutes by runaway train cars Saturday night when the train cars came to a rest across North Ohio. At about 7 p.m. Saturday, two engines, a car and caboose rolled across the train track in the 500 block of North Ohio, police Sgt.

John Soukup said. The train crew, which was not around at the time, thought they set the brake, Soukup said. The crew was notified and the cars were removed at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The name of the train company was not available.
