Stoner said he sees other similarities between the two men. They both had visions of the future, he said.

But one distinct difference is their family backgrounds Ken- nedy from a monied Massa- from a poor family in Arkansas. Stoner said he calls his fascination with politics a "hobby."

(AP) Heavy' rains punned "the MiBsdssinewa'T- -River to more than 5 feet above floods stage, prompting Marion mayor iton xaowery to declare a -state of emercrencv tmA iit iua. pie to evacuate their hctees.

I But officials at the, stated "-emergency management agency said the levee was holding steady at about 15.2 feet early today, which is below the 15.6-foot level that would mandate an evacua- of nearby residents. "The state of emergency means, basically, that crews are eadv tdneflnoridan3 alert," Kelly Stemnock, a SEMA spokeswoman, said today. There shouldn't be any evacuations necessary unless something else uappeiiB. Still, Mowery said it was safer j-ii mi wave nomes near tne jiver in case conditions worsened. "Those people who remain are endangering their lives," the mayor said.

Police and firefighters set up -barricades at several flooded intersections in the Only people who live in the areas and their relatives were to be in the restricted areas, police said. Stemnock said the heavy rain appeared to have moved out of the area, leaving the river at about 15.03 feet. The river's flood stage is 10 feet However, more rain was expected today in the central Indiana area, which could aggravate some areas already overflowing from the week's rain. In Decatur, the St. -Mary's River was at 21.5 feet or feet above flood stage early today.

"And in Kokomo, water splashed over the banks of Kokomo and Wildcat creeks. The creeks measured 13.8 feet Tuesday, which was high enough to put officials on alert, said Tom komo Wastewater Treatment Plant. Kokomo Parks and Recreation crews must wait for the creeks to recede before they can clean up any damage caused by flooding at the city's parks, High said. Debbie Newburn and her husband began watching the water rise in a creek in front of their Kokomo home late Sunday night as her husband prepared to go to work, When she called him Monday morning, she told him he'd have to swim to their house, which, as of Tuesday, had suffered only mi-. nor water damage.

WYMAN Associated Press Writer KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (AP) A tornado that tore across two subdivisions and a shopping area slightly injured more than 25 people, but narrowly missed a busy fairgrounds and caused no deaths or serious injuries. "We've been very fortunate," Mayor Jeff Smith said late Tuesday night." City officials prepared to begin damage surveys today, the first step in asking the state for emergency aid.

"It looks like the damage will be well over $1 million," said Noble County civil defense director Russ Carteaux. Fire department spokesman Jim Beck said the tornado touched down around 3:30 p.m. during a driving rainstorm. The funnel cloud struck the downtown area, damaging, several businesses, then apparently skipped northeast and touched downagain among homes and businesses near the edge df town. "It just looked like total devastation," Smith said.

The 4-H fairgrounds, where the county fair began Sunday, lay between the damage, but was untouched. "It just skirted around that area Smith said. Ellen Christian was home with her 1-year-old daughter, Ashley, and two other girls when the tornado struck. "I heard a ripping sound and saw our wall started to blow, down," she told the Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette. All four escaped uninjured.

Alden Taylor, a spokesman for the State Emergency Management, Agency, 25 people were treated at McCray Memorial Hospital in Kendallville for minor injuries and released. Three others one adult and two children were admitted to the hospital, but their injuries were not serious, he said. The tornado left some sections of the city of 10,000 without power or telephone service. Kendallville is about 30 miles north of Fort Wayne, Ten homes in the Arvada subdivision were destroyed, another time involvement in foreign affairs and his breadth of experience in Washington. Such a background would have helped balance a ticket led by Clinton, 45, who has little foreign policy experience.

Down-to-earth and quiet, Hamilton had spent much of his time serving in Washington since 1964 in obscurity. In 1987, when he House chairman of the Iran-Contra investigating committee, Hamilton rose to prominence. Hamilton may have hurt his chances to be on the ticket by opposing parental leave, a key part of the Clinton platform, and by his seeming acceptance of the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision on abortion, which allows states to place greater restrictions on a woman's right to abortion. But Hamilton appeared to hold no grudge toward Clinton.

Today, as Clinton prepares to accept the Democratic presidential nomination, Stoner is in the front row again for his 11th party convention. "Ifs like a blood transfusion. You renew your enthusiasm for principles," said Stoneia 72-year-old Clinton delegate from Columbus.

For his first convention, Stoner tagged along with a friend whose father was a former Indiana governor. By 1956, Stoner had become a full-fledged delegate.

Indiana delegation pays tribute to Hamilton by LISA MARIE PANE Associated Press Writer NEW YORK (AP) Indiana Rep! Lee Hamilton was lauded as man of integrity by several of his peers, who said the congressman "should not lament being over-" looked as Bill Clinton's running, mate. Clinton, the expected Democratic presidential nominee, passed over Hamilton for Tennessee Sen. AI Gore just days before the start of the party's national convention. At an Indiana delegation caucus during the convention Tuesday, former Indiana Sen. Birch Bayh and District of Columbia Mayor Sharon Pratt-Kelly told delegates their senior congressman had a great deal to be proud of.

"Lee, Hamilton has given us his judgement. He's provided leadership," Bayh said. "His accent might be a little different' (from Gore's), but the results will be the same." Hamilton, SI, appeared to have an edge early in Clinton's deliberations because of his long Elwood. mam "She's 80 years old and she can't handle this," he said. "She's panicked.
