T LATE DELIVERY The Associated Press Doris Dulligal holds recently delivered love letters written to her by a man she no longer remembers. SEALED WITH A Kiss 41 years later, love letters reach British woman By The Associated Press HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, England — Doris Spencer was a spirited girl on the verge of womanhood when Jim Irwin fell in love with her. She had been a handful for the nuns who cared for her. But her rebellious bent and charm had captured Jim's heart. The young suitor wrote Doris love letters, and sealed them with a kiss. But the tell-tale XXs — "kiss marks" -— on the small brown envelopes caught the attention of the nuns long before Doris ever saw them. She didn't receive the three letters until last month — 41 years after they had been written. Now a widow of 58, she finds herself unable to remember that rash boy. "They still had the XXs written over the seal by this boy Jim," she said Sunday. "I burst into tears when I read them. I had no idea anyone thought so much of me to be as persistent at this Jim Irwin was." Doris, who changed her name to Tehillah Duli- gall to forget her early life in abusive foster homes, has grown children who recently wrote to the society that had cared for their mother and requested her file. It responded by sending a package that included the letters. "Dear Doris, I am writing to let you know I "I was going to see you but when I phoned up .... they wouldn't let me speak to you." from a letter by Jim Irwin written to Doris when she was 17 came to Egham (the nearest railway station) last Tuesday," Irwin wrote. "I was going to see you but when I phoned up ... they wouldn't let me speak to you." He promised to come by again "with or without their permission." "PS," he added. "If you get short of cigarettes or money, write and let me know because I will always send you some." Duligall says she apparently met Irwin in Redhill, a town where she had lived in a hostel. Duligall tried to trace Irwin through the return address on the envelopes, but has had no' luck. "Reading these letters over and over again, I am sure he is a nice person I would enjoy meeting again," she said. T OLYMPIC BOMBING System treated Jewell as if he were guilty Olympic security guard is now trying to put his life back together By RUSS BYNUM The Associated Press ATLANTA — Now cleared of suspicion as an Olympic terrorist, Richard Jewell went from hero to suspect to an example of how high-profile investigations can make an innocent man infamous. "He's the perfect image for why we have the presumption of innocence," said Roy Black, the defense attorney who represented William Kennedy Smith in his rape trial. "But to be honest, this is one of those times that JEWELL there is a wrong with no real remedy." The beefy security guard's life turned upside down when his name was leaked as a suspect in the July 27 bomb blast at Centennial Olympic Park that killed one person and injured more than 100. Though he never was charged with a crime, Jewell became a virtual prisoner as federal agents and reporters staked out the apartment he shares with his mother. A letter Saturday from federal prosecutors clearing Jewell of suspicion helps only so much, his attorneys say. "There will always be people out there who believe Richard is the bomber," said Wayne Grant, one of several attorneys representing Jewell. "There will always be people who stare." That controversy will make it difficult for Jewell to return to law enforcement, as he wants to do, Grant said. His attorneys have threatened to sue news organizations and reporters who they believe tried to make Jewell fit a profile of a bomber as possibly a former police officer, military man or aspiring policeman seeking to be a hero. Joseph DiGenova, a former U.S. attorney who now works as a criminal defense lawyer in Washington, said both Jewell's lawyers and federal officials should focus now on finding who was responsible for leaking Jewell's name. "It is absolutely essential that they try and find out who leaked... the fact that this man allegedly fit some kind of bomber profile," he said. "It is that piece of information that put this man in the position he's in today." ; Federal investigators have been studying more than 200 rolls ^of videotape and still photographs taken at the park near the time of the bombing, and also have started interviewing bomb victims again. FBI spokesman Jay Spadafore declined to comment on the investigation Sunday. Jewell initially was hailed as a hero for alerting authorities tp t a suspicious knapsack in the park and helping to evacuate the arqa. He also did numerous interviews, and that may have made him,an easy target for investigators. "Can you imagine the pressure that these guys are under trying to solve the TWA bombing, the Atlanta bombing and the Oklahoma City bombing?" Black said. "There's a great temptation to spin out a story that makes your side look good." Newsweek magazine says in. its Nov. 4 issue it learned affidavits used to obtain search warrants against Jewell relied largely on a psychological profile of Jewell as an aspiring police officer and alje- gations that could have been checked without a warrant. District places bounty on missing students By The Associated Press BROWNSVILLE, Ore. — Kyle Lynde knew he shouldn't have been hanging out, not with a price on his head for skipping school. It didn't take long for Central Linn High School's bounty hunters to spot him and send the 18-year-old back to class. "If I could have gotten away, I probably would have," Lynde said. "There really was no way but." For each student returned to class, Donna Bronson, 39, and Marie Ekenberg, 48, are paid $300; monitoring the student's progress is worth another $200 to. the team and a diploma means a $500 bonus. There are no guns, handcuffs or Salvation Army tops charities By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Americans gave $23.5 billion to charities last year, giving most generously to the Salvation Army, American Red Cross and Catholic Charities USA. Giving was up 5 percent from a year earlier, The Chronicle of Philanthropy's annual survey of the 400 nonprofit organizations receiving the most private money showed. The 1994 increase was 6.3 percent. The list includes about $1 out of every $6 donated to nonprofits. Although donations to the Salvation Army dropped by 11.3 percent, that organization topped the list for the fourth consecutive year with collections of $644.3 million. The American Red Cross, number two for three years, raised $456.6 million, which represented a 7.9 percent drop from 1994. A 25-percent increase in giving to Catholic Charities USA boosted that organization from No. 7 to No. 3 on the list, as it raised $419.4 million last year. The survey also found: • Community foundations, which raise and distribute money in a single geographic area, saw the biggest gain in donations — 93 percent. • Giving rose 25.4 percent to museums and libraries, 17.5 percent to education groups, 17.4 percent to public broadcasting and 16.5 percentyjo arts organizations. violence involved—just a written agreement with each student that lets them know they are being watched. "I love doing this," Bronson said. "I consider it a privilege spending time with these young people. If we didn't approach them, probably no one else would have." State officials say the district south of Portland is the only one in Oregon that uses a bounty system for truants. Its 3.5 percent dropout rate is half the state average. Since the women started prowling the district in March, they have earned a reputation for relentlessness, stirring students from bed, tutoring at least one in jail and advocating for them in court.
