Winter weather continues to plague Midwest, South A storm dusted the Midwest and parts of the South today with snow after snapping power lines and closing schools in Arkansas. "There were people who planned to lay out in bikinis, and they're packing up their snow suits," said Donna Dickey, a University of Arkansas student whose spring break began today. The storm knocked out power to about 3,000 homes and businesses Thursday, Arkansas Power & Light Co. spokesman Charles Kelly said. Harrison, Ark., reported 22 inches of snow on the ground, while most northern parts of the state had 4 to 8 inches. Forecasters posted winter storm warnings for nothern Arkansas and western Kentucky. Snow advisories also were posted for southern Illinois, western Tennessee, southern Indiana, Ohio, northern West Virginia and southwest Pennsylvania. Early today, snow fell across lower Michigan, southwest Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, southern and eastern Missouri and northwest Kentucky. Rain and snow fell across southeast Missouri and southwest Kentucky. Rain fell in western Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana and eastern Texas.

In Canada Faces Charles Eulogizes Friend SANDHURST, England (AP) — Prince Charles and eight other members of Britain's royal family attended a funeral service for Charles' friend, Maj. Hugh Lindsay, who died in an avalanche that narrowly missed the prince. The 39-year-old heir to the throne read a eulogy in a steady voice during the service Thursday at the Royal Memorial Charles Chapel on the grounds of the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst, west of London. Among the mourners were Lindsay's widow, Sarah, who is six months pregnant with their first child. The 34-year-old career army officer and former aide to Queen Elizabeth II was skiing with Charles off the main trail at Klosters in the Swiss Alps on March 10 when an avalanche struck. Charles and other members of the party skied clear and escaped injury, but Lindsay and another friend, Patti Palmer-Tomkinson, were swept away. Mrs. Palmer-Tomkinson survived with broken legs and lung injuries. Leg infection forces Davis to cancel Midwest concerts NEW YORK (AP) -Jazz trumpeter Miles Davis had to cancel concert tour stops in Chicago, Detroit and overseas after being hospitalized for treatment of a leg infection, his publicist said. Davis, 62, entered a New York City hospital, whose name was not disclosed, on March 3 and was expected to remain under treatment three more weeks, Terrie Williams said Thursday. Davis injured the leg in France, second stop on a tour that began in Italy. Dates in Chicago and Detroit and in Hawaii, New Zealand and Australia have been canceled, Williams said. Davis' condition was unrelated to a hip implant he received after a car accident in 1975, she said. Maine governor focus of scavenger hunt AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Gov. John McKernan Jr. has become a hunted man. Dozens of amateur photographers have flocked to the governor's mansion here hoping to get a shot of McKernan walking to his office at the Capitol as part of a scavenger hunt being sponsored by radio station WMME-FM. The photograph of Maine's chief executive on the hoof is one of several items needed to win.the $1,000 prize in "The Wild Moose Hunt." Others include a losing state lottery ticket, 92 signatures from 92 different people and an air-sickness bag from an airline. Some shutterbugs have waited up to two hours for the governor to appear since the contest was announced Tuesday. About 150 people showed up Thursday. "It wasn't our idea to have a picture in the scavenger hunt to include me, I can tell you that," said McKernan, who slipped out of the house 20 minutes early one day, prompting 15 late-comers to march to his office and ask for an impromptu walk. By that time, however, he had already left town for the day, his press secretary said. The scavenger hunt ends Saturday, but the governor's office announced he would give contestants one more chance to snap his picture between 7:40 a.m. and 8 a.m. today.

Regan book on Reagan to give fresh insight' NEW YORK (AP) - A book by former White House chief of staff Donald R.

Lites St. Patricks Day birth is third for family NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Angela Patricia Schembeck's birth made it a hat trick for the Schembeck family. She became the third-generation St. Patrick's Day baby of the clan that traces its roots to Ireland. Thursday was her father's 23rd birthday and his father's 47th birthday. "It's a miracle. It's absolutely incredible,'' said the baby's father, Kevin Schembeck. "This is the best birthday present we could have ever received." Angela arrived three days late at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. The Schembecks, all of College Park, were celebrating in the nursery with a birthday cake baked by the baby's grandmother. "My mom baked the cake yesterday so it only has my dad's name and mine on it,'' said Schembeck. "We'll have to add Angela's name to it from now on. "What makes this so overwhelming is that it was all natural; nothing was used to stimulate the labor, "he said. The baby's mother, Doreen, 22, said that when the birth went past the due date she had a feeling that the baby would be born on the 17th. DRIPPING FAUCETS WASTE MONEY!
