Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Wednesday, March 16, 1988 Page 9 Donnelly To Run For Attorney General INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - South Bend attorney Joseph S. Donnelly says northern Indiana shouldn't be left out when Democrats fill out their ticket for the 1988 election. Donnelly formally entered the Democratic contest for attorney general Tuesday by offering to bring new energy to the state's chief legal office and geographic balance to the party's 1988 ticket. He became the third Democrat to enter the race for the nomination that will be decided at the party's June 6 state convention in Indianapolis. "I can bring geographic balance to the ticket," said Donnelly. "People in our area of the state want to feel a part of the ticket, a part of this election.'' Ann M. DeLaney of Indianapolis, the party's unsuccessful candidate for lieutenant governor in 1984, and John Rumple of Columbus also have announced for attorney general. Two-term Republican Attorney General Linley E. Pearson of Frankfort currently has no opposition for the GOP nomination. Donnelly, 32, promised if elected to forge an effective partnership with local prosecutors, to improve consumer protection efforts and to strengthen the staff of the attorney general's office. "The attorney general's should be an office whose key goal is to serve the people of Indiana," Donnelly said at a Statehouse news conference. "The best way to do that is by making Democratic traditions our commitment — the traditions of compassion, hard work, ability and dedication." Donnelly said he has visited more than 70 counties during nine months of political work leading up to his formal announcement. He said he discussed his candidacy with gubernatorial hopefuls Evan Bayh, the secretary of state from Indianapolis, and former Kokomo Mayor Stephen J. Daily. Donnelly made his announcement at a series of news conferences in South Bend, Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, Jeffersonville, Evansville, Terre Haute and Gary. Democrat Claims ISTEP Was Sloppily Run Associated Press Melanie Thomas, 16, Gary, says baby is hers Gary Girl Confesses Baby She Found Was Hers GARY, Ind. (AP) - A 16- year-old girl who had claimed she found a newborn boy wrapped in a towel in the snow outside her family home has confessed to police that she gave birth to the infant unaided, authorities said. Melanie A. Thomas told police Tuesday she made up the story that someone tapped on her window and left the baby hours after delivery Monday. She hoped her story would help her keep the infant, Miss Thomas' mother said. "She knew we wouldn't be able to take care of it," said Shirley Thomas, "but she felt that if it were abandoned we'd feel sorry for it and keep it." Mrs. Thomas said her daugh- •—-CORRECTION—"i— On page 1 of the Sears Spring Super Sale for March 13, we are adverlli- ing two dryers No. 68631 and No. 68201. The ad describes them as washers.

The high school sophomore said she started to suspect she was pregnant two months ago, but was unsure until two weeks prior to her delivery.

Police said the infant was placed in the custody of Lake County Child Protective Services. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The new state competency tests for Hoosier students were sloppily administered this year, the only announced Democratic candidate for state school superintendent charges. Former Rep. Mary Pettersen said Tuesday she fears the administration problems could damage validity of the test results. Pettersen said she saw flaws in test administration as she was helping give the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress exam recently to llth graders in Hammond, where she teaches chemistry. "There were two glaring flaws in the way this test was prepared," she said at a Statehouse news conference. "No specific directions were given to the test administrators concerning breaks (from testing), and the exam was not properly structured to keep students from gaining advance knowledge of questions on the test. "I have real questions about the validity of the test because of the way it was administered," said Pettersen. She said most national standardized tests come with explicit instructions on break time in order to ensure that all students taking the test are working under similar conditions. Pettersen also claimed that ct»ec*J?|ci W -S&«- • BUDWEISER •BUD LIGHT 24-12 oz. cans Loose YOUR CHOICE! • FLEISCHMANN'S GIN • HIRAM WALKER TEN HIGH 1.75 LITER EACH 9 98 EACH .
