By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Police on horseback dispersed more than 300 AIDS activists protesting in front of the White House Sunday after demonstrators tossed funeral urns with ashes inside over the wrought-iron fence. Steven Hardway, of Oklahoma City, a member of the group ACT UP who threw an urn he said bore the ashes of his lover who died of AIDS, was escorted from the scene, but the U.S. Park Police said he was not arrested or charged. ACT UP characterized the demonstration as a political funeral to protest President Clinton's AIDS policies and to press demands including guaranteed access to anti-AIDS medications, more AIDS research and a federally funded needle exchange program for addicts. Clinton, campaigning in the West, missed the protest. The White House had no comment. Spokesman Jim Fetig said he was unaware of the demonstration. The group marched to a slow . drumbeat from near the Capitol, beside the AIDS Quilt with names of victims of the disease laid out on the Mall and on to the White House. There, some members placed pictures of dead friends and loved ones on the fence as others tossed hi the funeral urns and shouted complaints against the Clinton administration over a bullhorns. One demonstrator was Jeff Getty, a patient from Oakland, Calif., who had baboon bone marrow transplanted into his body last December in an experimental AIDS treatment. "One less missile fired at Iraq could help reduce the size of the quilt," Getty said. "We have to fight the president to get these drugs paid for." Clinton viewed the quilt Friday as volunteers laid it out The Associated Press An unidentified man is silhouetted against the AIDS Memorial Quilt Sunday on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. along the Mall from the Capitol to the Washington Monument. Kate Krauss, an ACT UP member from Philadelphia, said she considered his presence there a political act for his presidential campaign. "Once you're dead, you're not controversial anymore," she said. ACT UP, which stands for AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power, claims chapters throughout the world including ones in New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Paris. FISHING INDUSTRY Salmon too bounteous in Alaska While lower states suffer shortage, Alaska is throwing away fish By TIMOTHY EGAN The New York Times ANCHORAGE, Alaska — At a time when coastal communities in most of the United States are left with the spectral remains of once- abundant fish runs, Alaska this fall is grappling with the opposite problem: salmon so bounteous that millions of fish are being thrown away. Like a parable of nature primed beyond its limits, Alaska's attempt to maximize its salmon output has worked so well it has produced a crisis. Fishermen complain about record low prices for their catch. Processors say the market has fallen. And food banks bemoan a missed opportunity to feed the hungry, "We have been more than successful, and now we're paying for it," said Carl Rosier, the former state fish and game commissioner. About 2.5 million pink and chum salmon, reaching the end of their life cycles, have been scooped up near shores, ground up, then dumped at sea over the last three months. Experts say the dumping amounts to one of the biggest sin-' gle incidents of wasting a valuable OKLAHOMA CITY BOMBING "It's not something we're proud of, or something we want to repeat." Geron Bruce Alaskan fish and game official fish species in modern times. "It's not something we're proud of, or something we want to repeat," said Geron Bruce, a special assistant to the commissioner of fish and game. "There were no buyers for the fish, and the food banks could not figure out a way to get them." The glut was caused in part by a huge surge of hatchery-bred fish that occurred when the wild fish runs were also reaching a peak. Buyers say the prices are depressed because of the enormous growth in farm-raised salmon from countries like Norway, Chile and Japan. But beyond the swings of the global fish market, Alaska's disposal of its surfeit of salmon has left many biologists scratching their heads over what the state has created. Millions in below- market state loans were used to build hatcheries for fish that nobody seems to want. The waste of a valuable source Survivors, families plan to appeal judge's ruling The funeral will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday in the Monument School gymnasium, the Revs. Roy Dixon and James Brackett officiating. Burial will be in Winona Cemetery. Memorials may be made to School Scholarship Fund or Shriner's Hospitals. Visitation will be from 2 to 9 p.m. today at Roster Funeral Home, 217 Freeman, Oakley 67748. There will be no viewing before the service Tuesday. Group upset about ruling that could keep some from being at trial By The Associated Press OKLAHOMA CITY — As the Oklahoma City bombing case grinds slowly toward trial, a group of survivors and victim's relatives said Sunday they plan an appeal of a judge's order barring some of them from the courtroom. "We've been told where to go, where to wait, what to do, too many times as far as I'm concerned," said Marsha Kight, the founder and head of Families and Survivors United. Right's 23-year- old daughter was among 168 people killed when the federal building was bombed April 19,1995. Kight has been an outspoken advocate of victims, battling for closed circuit television coverage of the trial and more seats in the courtroom in Denver. Earlier this month, U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch affirmed an order he first issued in June barring survivors or victims' relatives from the trial if they planned to offer victim impact statements during the trial's penalty phase. Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols face federal murder and conspiracy charges. Matsch ruled hearing trial testimony could influence victim impact statements. Victims have ridiculed the notion that a trial could influence the impact of bombing on their lives. Assistant U.S. Attorney Vicki Behenna, who represented the prosecution team at Sunday's meeting, said prosecutors were seeking permission to join in the appeal. Kight said the group's appeal would be filed in early November. Matsch has not set a trial date and is still hearing defense motions. of fresh protein has spurred plans to ensure it never happens again. One Alaska charity, One Heart Ministries in Anchorage, says it will use $3 million in pledged donations to begin a venture in the fish canning business. The organization plans to take- all the available surplus next year, can it and distribute it to food banks across the United States. "We're going to be there next year for all the fish they might have to dump," said Patrick Bradley, a longtime fisherman who is the manager of the fleet the ministry will use to collect the fish. Typically, the fish are caught using large nets placed near the mouths of rivers where the fish come back to spawn. Alaskan fishermen caught about 186 million salmon a year in the five years that ended in 1995. By comparison, in the Pacific Northwest and Northern California, where more than $3 billion has been spent trying to restore vanquished Pacific salmon runs, a good year's commercial catch might total 5 million fish. "To think we are throwing away this many fish at a time when food banks are full of people who need help and the lower 48 is suffering with lost fish runs is just mind- boggling," Bradley said. "I don't think the public is going to put up with this anymore, either." ON THE RECORD Hospital report Salina Regional Health Center SANTA FE ADMISSIONS — Marie G.
