This year the agency already has helped 4,080. And the peak period is coming. "We barely squeaked through August and September," Jackson said. "I wasn't sure we were going to make it. But the Lord watched out for us." The Salvation Army has served 10 percent more meals than last year. A typical increase is 5 percent a year, said Paul Woodall, director of the Salvation Army. "We're OK for this year," Woodall said. "We'll worry about next year when it comes." No agency director had a reason for the increases. Glen Kochanowski, assistant chief for the Salina Police Department, said officers on patrol haven't seen an increase of homeless people on Salina's streets. But he said the good reputation of the Salina Rescue Mission may be attracting others to come from out of town. "A community that doesn't have a facility will get a report that there's a good one somewhere else," Kochanowski said. "So they show up here." That's the reason a Dallas resident who wanted to remain anonymous came to stay at the mission. He wanted to' take advantage of Salina's strong employment sector. "I just wanted to find a place to stay for a little while," the man said. "This is the only shelter here." A Sikeston, Mo., man who also didn't want to give his name was in Nevada when he said he got robbed "for everything I had." He stopped at the mission for a place to sleep on his way home. ."I wasn't accustomed to sleeping outside," the man said. "I'm very grateful for the mission. I don't know what I would have done without it." ON THE Roberts uses derogatory name to describe Thompson Hospital report Salina Regional Health Center PENN ADMISSIONS — None.

He and his son were waiting for an elevator after his nemesis walked by. He did what many people do, every day. He muttered a remark, referring to her with a derogatory name. But Roberts is the 1st District congressman and Republican nominee for the seat held by retiring U.S. Sen. Nancy Kassebaum. His nemesis is State Treasurer Sally Thompson, the Democratic nominee. And a reporter was present to catch his remark- Roberts referred to Thompson as a "bitch," then turned to the reporter and apologized for his remark. Thompson's campaign suggested that Roberts' slip showed he cannot handle the intense pressure that comes with a U.S. Senate seat, that he would have trouble building compromise because of ROBERTS THOMPSON his temper. But Roberts is not supposed to be under pressure: He has been the assumed winner of the race from the outset. Media polls so far have shown him with a commanding lead. The incident occurred after Roberts and Thompson had a joint appearance before staff members of the Kansas City Star. During their appearance, Thompson noted that in 1995 Roberts voted for a bill that would have discontinued youth jobs programs. She also noted that in July 1991 two of his three children earned more than $1,300 as interns with the House doorkeeper's office. "We're not the first one to bring up this issue," said Thompson spokesman Ted Miller. "He took it personally." Thompson has been trying to portray Roberts as a Washington insider who has taken advantage of congressional perks. In doing so, she has raised a series of small is- sues — whether he lives in Dodge City, the size of his pension, four overdrafts with the now defunct House bank — to build a case. In a statement, Roberts later described what happened as a "private family conversation" with his son David, 23. They were in a corridor at the Star building. Thompson was ahead of them, intent on reaching the elevator. That's when Roberts made his remark. He said: "I'm not getting into the elevator with that bitch." Roberts then turned to a Star reporter and said, "I'm sorry, I shouldn't have said that." Thompson was not present.
