Page 22 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Thursday, March 17, 1988 National Report Mecham Takes Stand At His Impeachment Trial PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) — Senators stood in respect as Gov. Evan Mecham arrived for the first time«t his impeachment trial to testify that he didn't cover up a death threat and did not sell appointments for campaign contributions. Mecham told the Arizona Senate on Wednesday that his trust in some aides was "a trust misplaced" and that he also had "big trouble" in relations with state Attorney General Bob Corbin, a fellow Republican. The 63-year-old first-term governor, who said his 1986 campaign theme was to "rid the state of corruption," was expected to resume testimony today. Department of Public Safety Director Ralph Milstead testified last week that Mecham ordered him not to cooperate with a Corbin investigation. The attorney general was looking into an alleged death threat against former Mecham aide Donna Carlson, who was about to testify before a grand jury on Mecham's failure to report a $350,000 campaign loan. U.S. Chief Delegate To Vietnam Talks Dies FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — William J. Porter, the chief U.S. delegate to the Paris peace talks that ended the Vietnam War, has died of cancer. He was 73. Porter, who had served in many diplomatic posts, died Tuesday at a nursing home. From 1962 to 1965, Porter served as the first U.S. ambassador to Algeria. He later served as deputy ambassador to South Vietnam, ambassador to South Korea, undersecretary of state for political affairs and ambassador to Canada. He retired in 1977 as ambassador to Saudi Arabia. In July 1971, President Nixon named Porter chief delegate to the Paris talks to succeed David K.E. Bruce, who was retiring because of illness. Doctors Caution Against Diabetes Drug BOSTON (AP) — Despite promising preliminary results, physicians should not routinely use a transplant drug to treat childhood diabetes until experts learn its long-term safety and effectiveness, doctors cautioned today. A report by French doctors is the latest in a series of studies demonstrating that the drug cyclosporine seems to help victims of juvenile diabetes, also known as Type 1 or insulin-dependent diabetes. The report showed that half of the youngsters treated with the drug did not need insulin shots one year after their therapy began. The study was conducted by Dr. P.F. Bougneres and colleagues at St. Vincent de Paul Hospital in Paris and published in today's New England Journal of Medicine. Doctors Stop 36-year Case Of Hiccups BOSTON (AP) — A 75-year-old woman finally found relief after 36 years of hiccuping, according to a report published today. Her hiccuping stopped after doctors gave her a drug to treat her newly diagnosed Parkinson's disease. Until then, "the patient's hiccup bouts were almost continuous, with rare remissions lasting a maximum of six to eight weeks," the doctors wrote. "Even during the periods of remission, sporadic hiccups were observed. She had been hospitalized several times and had undergone a great many tests." The hiccups immediately stopped when she got the drug amantadine for Parkinson's disease. The doctors theorize that the disease was somehow responsible for the hiccups. Dinosaur Discovery Supports Parenting Theory NEW YORK (AP) — Scientists said today they have found embryo skeletons from two kinds of dinosaurs in Montana, and that the bones give further evidence that some dinosaurs may have tended their young like birds. The discovery, some 60 miles southeast of Glacier National Park, is reported in the British journal Nature. The animals lived some 75 million to 80 million years ago, John R. Homer, curator of paleontology at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Mont., said in a telephone interview. Nineteen embryonic skeltons were found in a clutch of eggs laid by a previously unnamed type of dinosaur, which Horner and David Weishampel of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore propose calling Orodromeus makelai.

Downtown Logansport 722-4400 or 753-3300 Report Says Vets Cheating WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. veterans are cheating the government out of tens of millions of dollars each year by lying about their incomes and collecting excessive benefits as a result, a congressional report says. The report by the General Accounting Office, the investigative wing of Congress, compared Veterans Administration income forms filled out by pensioners with Internal Revenue Service data. Sen. Frank Murkowski, R- Alaska, released the report Wednesday and said Congress should move to halt the abuses by giving the VA access to same tax information so it can verify what veterans tell it about income from jobs and investments. Murkowski is the senior Republican on the Veterans Affairs Committee. The IRS information is compiled from reports supplied by employers and other income sources such as banks and stockbrokers. The GAO's findings were based on an examination of such Two Killed In Fire At Chemical Plant BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J. (AP) — An explosion and fire at a testing laboratory killed two people today and critically injured a third, but authorities said no chemicals or radioactive material appeared to have escaped. Among the hazardous materials used at Gollob Analytical Services are radioactive hydrogen and krypton, and the solvents xylene and benzine, said Department of Environmental Protection spokesman Jim Staples. Light industrial buildings within a half-mile downwind were evacuated as a precaution, and employees heading to work at neighboring buildings were sent home. Volunteer firefighters, working upwind of the one-story lab, thought they had extinguished 5th-Grader Liked Mississippi Trip MARTINEZ, Calif. (AP) Ten-year-old Melissa Montgomery transformed a class report on Mississippi into an adventure that included a first-hand look at Civil War battlefields, a catfish fry, grits, mud pie and lots of museums. The best part, Melissa said Wednesday after returning from her five-day excursion into the Deep South, was the Impressionist Gallery and its "neat stuff." The worst, she said, was the catfish, which she had to taste at what Californians would have called a barbecue, but in the Deep South is known as a fishfry. Not far behind the ugly creatures came a planetarium. "You just look up. It's dumb," she said. the blaze by 6:30 a.m., nearly 4Vi> hours after it began, but it flared up again a half-hour later, officials said. The identities of the victims were not known, said police Chief Ralph M. Del Duca. A 30-year-old man was in critical condition in surgery today at University Hospital in Newark, said nursing supervisor Mary Kwasek. State inspectors will check a nearby brook that runs into the Passaic River for contamination, and a township crew built a sandbag dam around the plant to contain runoff water from the firefighting, Staples said. The air around the plant also will be checked for chemicals and radiation, he said. information from a single year. It said pensioners who understated their incomes to the VA potentially collected $182.5 million more in pension payments than they deserved in 1984. Under the law, the size of a VA pension — which went to 1.4 million people in 1984 — is determined principally by a recipient's total income from all sources. The GAO report said congressional investigators found that 549,000 pensioners failed to tell the VA about $947 million in income.
