WEDNESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 13,1993 THE GALVESTON DAILY NEWS 11-A AP This Is a photo of the house In an exclusive section of suburban trashed in Police: House trashed after teen tells 200 pals to party Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO - A teenager angry at his parents for packing him off to boarding school organized a "Risky Business-like bash while they were taking him away. The savage soiree left the family's million-dollar home trashed and plundered. As many as 200 young people showed up at the party, 10 were arrested and more arrests were expected, police said Tuesday. The youth, believed to be 17, was not in custody Tuesday morning but was being interviewed in Colorado, where he and his parents were when the Friday night fete occurred, police said. "All indications are that he helped set up this party," said Capt. Michael Lanam. "He told them .when his parents would be gone ... -because he did not want to go to :: boarding school and he wanted to get some sort of retribution against his parents." Windows and doors were broken. Carpets were damaged, and beer bottles and other trash were strewn : . about. A mixture of dish detergent i and potato chips covered the marble floors. The house also was stripped of most furniture and valuables — electronic equipment, paintings, ;' jewelry and clothing. 'It turned out to be a looting party," Lanam said. "The kids called it that." The party started out small but the revelry turned into a rampage when the crowd swelled. It was like something out of "Risky Business," Lanam said, referring to the hit 1983 movie in which Tom Cruise turns his fami- 1/s house into a brothel and invites his high school pals over. The youth lived with his mother in a fashionable area of Fremont, 20 miles southeast of San Francisco. The rap star Hammer lives only a few houses away. The teen-ager's father lives in Sacramento. "The mother is denying he had any participation in this, but our indication... Scorn his own friends... is that he did," Lanam said. Detectives learned that the youth invited several friends at Mission San Jose High School to throw a party at his house when his family was taking him to a military-type boarding school in Colorado, police said. It isn't known how the friends got into the house Friday night. There were what appeared to be signs of forced entry at the back of the house, but there was so much damage that police couldn't tell whether it was done to get in or during the wild revels.

Midwest flood funds released WASHINGTON (AP) — President Clinton made available $65 million in emergency funds Tuesday to address public health problems and social service needs resulting from flooding of the Mississippi River and its tributaries in the upper Midwest. A White House statement said the money will be used to prevent the spread of disease, repair public health clinics and provide social services for the elderly. The funds were allocated by Congress in an emergency supplemental appropriations act, contingent on the president submitting a budget request and designating an amount needed for emergency purposes. Newsreel footage to be preserved LOS ANGELES (AP) - The University of California, Los Angeles, received a $255,000 grant to preserve newsreel footage documenting the Depression, the rise of fascism in Europe and the Spanish Civil War.

Fogel, who has argued that slavery was economically efficient, and Douglass C. North, a scholar of property rights throughout history, shared the Nobel Prize in economics Tuesday. North, from Washington University in St. Louis, and Fogel, the fourth consecutive University of Chicago professor to win, were singled out as 'leading figures within the field of'new economic history.' The field, known also as Clio- metrics, is the use of modern statistical analysis, mathematical models and computers to understand historical events — and their implications for the future. North, 72, said he was "flabbergasted" to share the $825,000 prize. "It's the most exciting thing that can ever happen to one as a scholar." Fogel, 67, was doing research at home at 5 a.m. when he got the call from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. "I was pleasantly surprised but not shocked," he said. "I was very moved and very honored that they viewed my work the way that they did." FogeVs view that slavery is eco- NOBEL Economics • 1993 nomically viable'! was outlined in \ his 1974 book: "Time on the} Cross: The Eco-? nomicsofAmer-, ican Slavery,": written with; Stanley L.; Engerman. ; It generated criticism because; Fogel was perceived as condoning" slavery, but in a 1989 follow-up, • "Without Consent or Contract: The' Rise and Fall of American Slavery," Fogel made clear he thought' it was immoral. He said Tuesday he stands by^ his original theory about slavery. * "If you want me to say it was* unprofitable or inefficient, I won't,"; he said at a news conference. ' The Nobels for Fogel and North: brought the number of American' winners to 21 of 34 since the eco-: nomic prize was established in" 1968 by the Central Bank of Swe-J den. Fogel, the seventh winner from the University of Chicago, is; best known for his work on rail-' roads and slavery and their rela-» tionships to the course of history;North for his study of institutions,' such as private property and labor; organizations.
