Vaughn testified that every morning he takes four tables, one for diabetes, one for hypertension, one for potassium and one for his weight problems. When the medication is not taken, Vaughn said, he was "really in trouble." Vaughn testified that he suffers from a "Cold, hollowy feeling inside the stomach and chest. "When I arise quickly, things move and I go into a cold sweat and have leg cramps," he said. "All in all, my body feels bad. It's a great annoyance." When asked by Briggs if he had taken his medication prior to June 23, Vaughn said he had not. "There wasn't any left in the bottles and I didn't have any money." Vaughn testified that the last time he had taken his medication was the Thursday prior to the shooting. When asked by Briggs to de- Illinois— Continued From Page 1 the Democratic National Convention this summer. "I don't know who out there will emerge, but I think Paul Simon has as good a shot as anyone, "he said. Simon said in several interviews that his relative lack of campaign money wasn't a big problem, though he concluded his appearance on CBS-TV by saying with a smile, "Any of your viewers who want to send in a contribution, I'll be happy to accept it." "I don't believe we have any front-runners," Dukakis said after finishing what he described as "a respectable third" in Illinois. He said in his discussions with Democratic Party leaders around the country "there is an overwhelming sentiment that we should get behind a nominee." Jackson finished second in the duel of favorite sons, and said, "Jesse Jackson, in popular vote arid delegates, is on top of the race." In fact, the Associated Press delegate survey showed Dukakis with 464.5 and Jackson with 460.55. Sen. Albert Gore Jr. had 354.8; Rep. Richard Gephardt 145, and Simon 171.5 delegates. The big losers in Illinois were Republicans Dole and Pat Robertson and Democrats Gore and Gephardt. "We're staying in," said Dole after absorbing another beating at the hands of the vice president. "Illinois has spoken loud and clear and strong," said Bush, who now has won 18 straight primaries — 16 of them one week ago on Super Tuesday. Thompson, Illinois chairman of the Bush campaign, said the contest "demolished the notion that George Bush is a less electable candidate than Bob Dole." There was relatively little campaign activity today, after five frantic weeks in which nearly half the delegates to the Democratic and Republican conventions were chosen. Gephardt was campaigning in Michigan and Gore was in Kansas. Dukakis had an appearance scheduled in New York, but the rest of the candidates were off the campaign trail. Kansas Democrats hold scribe the events of June 23, Vaughn said he didn't sleep at all except for 20-minute intervals. He testified that he had not changed clothes two or three days prior to the shooting. At this point, Vaughn broke down and began sobbing. Court was recessed and Vaughn is expected to finish his testimoney later this morning. Vaughn's brother, Daniel Andrew Norris, a senior conference coordinator at Indiana University, testified that he visited Vaughn in Carroll County Jail on June 24th. "My brother was upset and said he didn't remember the second and third shots," he said. When Briggs asked Norris if Vaughn told him that he meant to intentionally shoot Rebecca, Norris said "Absolutely not." Vaughn is believed to be the final witness and the case is expected to go to the jury this afternoon. State Report caucuses this weekend and both parties have primaries scheduled Saturday in Puerto Rico. . Next Tuesday, the only event in the presidential struggle is a primary to select the seven delegates allocated to Democrats abroad. The next major battleground for the Democrats was Michigan, which holds party caucuses on March 26. Gephardt made little effort in Illinois, pinning his hopes on Michigan with its strong union vote. But Gore spent about $200,000 on advertising in Illinois and ended up with only 5 percent of the vote. Yet, he insisted, there would be better days ahead. "This race has a long way to run yet," said the Tennessee senator. For the Republicans, the next big test was Connecticut, with a primary on March 29. That should produce another big win for Bush, who grew up in the state, which his father represented in the U.S. Senate. There were two presidential votes in Illinois — a non-binding popularity contest and the election of convention delegates. Bush and Simon were the big winners in both. With nearly all the votes counted, Bush was getting about 54 percent of the popular vote and winning 64 delegates. Dole was receiving 36 percent of the vote, and winning 18 delegates, far short of his goal of 40. Robertson was getting 7 percent of the vote and no delegates. Simon, running stronger than expected, was getting 42 percent of the popular vote and picking up 136 delegates. Jackson was receiving 32 percent of the vote and 37 delegates, while Dukakis was getting 17 percent of the vote, but no delegates. Gore and Gephardt trailed with 5 and 2 percent of the vote respectively, and no delegates. Good news for Dukakis came from far-away Washington state, where Democratic officials released results from 65 percent of their March 8 caucuses. Dukakis led with 45 percent of the vote, to 35 percent for Jackson and 14 percent uncommitted. Simon had 4 percent. Overall, Washington will send 65 delegates to the national convention. Crawfordsville Policeman Sues Over Demotion CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A former assistant police chief who claims he was demoted for political reasons has filed a $400,000 suit against the city of Crawfordsville, officials said. Michael Lohorn alleges Mayor Philip Michael demoted him in December for political reasons. Lohorn, who was named assistant chief and given the rank of captain of detectives in 1985, was demoted to the rank of detective sergeant. Lohorn says he was demoted by the mayor without proper authority, without just cause and without a hearing. The Metropolitan Board of Police Commissioners denied the police officer's request for a hearing on the demotion in December, ruling the newly elected mayor acted reasonably. IRS Suspends Audits Of Grad Students INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The IRS has suspended efforts to collect back taxes on graduate student stipends until a more uniform and consistent policy can be adopted, said a spokeswoman for the IRS in the Indianapolis region. Carol L. Shanahan said she could offer no explanation why the audits seemed geographically linked. "The commission did indicate we would hold off on this until we can adopt a consistent policy," she said Tuesday. IRS Commissioner Lawrence B. Gibbs ordered the suspension of audits last week at the urging of several university administrators. Master Farmers Named BY Prairie Farmer INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The man who wrote the laws on branding cattle has been named one of the four master farmers by the Indiana Prairie Farmer Magazine. Lawrence County rancher Harry T. Armstrong, often seen at the Indiana Statehouse wearing a large white western hat, was awarded the master farmer plaque Tuesday. His 350 brood ccws and their calves bear the first registered brand issued by Indiana. Armstrong wrote and lobbied the state laws requiring registration of livestock brands. Food Stamps Stop At Salvation Army Center INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Five Indiana Salvation Army treatment centers dropped out of a state certification program and will no longer be able to receive food stamps. Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Centers in Indianapolis, Evansville, Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend no longer may apply for client food stamps, Julia M. Davis, food stamp program director in Marion County, said Tuesday. Centers have applied for all clients and then used the stamps to directly buy food and plan meals.

DAILY GAME-8-2-2 PICK FOUR —6-2-7-7 ESTIMATED LOTTO JACKPOT — $8 million ESTIMATED LOTTO 7 JACKPOT - $8 million Speed King Thompson, Wife Shot To Death BRADBURY, Calif. (AP) Auto speed king Mickey Thompson and his wife were shot to death this morning on the front lawn of their exclusive hillside home in what authorities said was "an assassination." Thompson, 59, and his wife were found dead at dawn by Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies responding to reports of gunfire, said Deputy Doug Gatlin. "It was a double homicide, an assassination," said Deputy Richard Dinsmoor. The bodies were found about 6 a.m. on the front lawn of the couple's Woodlyn Road home in a high-security, gated community 20 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles. They were shot to death, but the type of weapon wasn't disclosed, Dinsmoor said. Thompson became famous as the "Speed King" in the 1950s when he set the first of his nearly 500 auto speed and endurance records. In 1960 he became the first to travel over 400 mph on land when he drove a four-engine streamlined car • Obituaries Lucille Breshears Services for Lucille Breshears, 72, of 111 Unger St., will be held at 1:30 p.m. Thursday in Fisher Funeral Chapel.
