No foul play' seen in M'burg man's death The body of a man found in Upper Allen Township Tuesday evening has been identified. Cumberland County Coroner Michael Norris says the body of Mark Anthony, 36, of Raven Hill Road, Mechanicsburg, was found by a township resident walking in a wooded area north of Arcona Estates about 8 p.m. The body was located in a small creek bed off Brookwood Drive and may have washed up there during recent flooding.

Anthony was last seen at his home on March 24. Norris says there is no evidence of "foul play" and an autopsy will be conducted to determined the cause of death. The results of the autopsy will not be known for several weeks. Trial for brick theft postponed until June Two Middlesex Township women accused of stealing bricks from a home under construction are scheduled for a June trial. A trial originally scheduled for the March term was delayed to June 13 by Cumberland County Court Judge Edgar Bayley to give the district attorney an opportunity to review evidence.

Annie Hine, 33, and Jody Livziey, 31, both of the 100 block of Fieldstone Drive in Country Meadow Estates, were arrested following an investigation by township police for thefts that allegedly occurred over a two-month period last summer. Ms. Hine is a teacher in Cumberland Valley School District and Ms. Livziey is employed by Warwick School District. Both are charged with theft by unlawful taking and criminal conspiracy and are free while awaiting trial.

Their attorney, Jeffrey L. Stoner of Lemoyne, says he's hoping the district attorney's review of the evidence will show "that no crime was committed" and a trial will be averted. I "Before going to trial we're asking him to take a look at the evidence, talk to the witnesses and the construction owner," Stoner says. "I've talked to them and none of them want to pursue it. None of them want anything to happen with this." Mennonites to help rid Laos of bombs AKRON (AP) A pacifist Mennonite agency and a British explosives disposal firm are launching a $1 million effort to clear 123,500 acres of bomb-infested farmland in Laos.

The 75-year-old Mennonite Central Committee said the project is its largest non-food undertaking ever. The Laotian government approved the project Tuesday, more than 20 years after most of the bombs were dropped from U.S. war-planes. Mines Advisory Group, a British humanitarian agency that runs bomb-disposal programs in the Middle East and Cambodia, will provide personnel, equipment and training to remove old bombs dropped on Laos during the Vietnam War. The recovery operation will focus on fist-sized explosives.

But the report goes nowhere if the school board does not reverse its 6-0 vote Tuesday to reject it. The fact-finder's report was approved by "a reasonable majority" of more than 120 members of Big Spring Education Association present, Union sues directors who didn't voteA4 says BSEA spokeswoman Nancy Wemer.

She declined to release a specific vote count. Mrs. Werner says BSEA voted for the report even though some of its recommen-1 dations fall short of what the union is seek-' ing. "We thought he had good reasons for the positions he took," she says. At the same time, salary increases proposed by Hillman are closer to what BSEA wants than those of the last fact-finder's report a year ago by James McMullen.

BSEA rejected that report, which called for pay increases totaling $3,100 over three years compared to the $5,600 BSEA wants for the same period. Now that BSEA has voted, state law gives the board five to 10 days to vote on the report a second time. If the board votes against the report again, it is considered rejected. If the board approves the report and BSEA's position is unchanged, "then we have a contract," Mrs. Werner says.

"I would hope the board would give serious consideration to the fact-finder's report before they take their next vote," she says. Big Spring has been in talks for more than two years. Teachers have been without a contract since the last one expired in June 1992. Three Big Spring board members abstained from Tuesday's vote on the factfinder's report. Two are teachers elsewhere and one is married to a Big Spring teacher.

al-Qassam, Hamas' military wing. Israeli officials "should expect three other surprises," it said. The United States stepped up pressure on Arafat to denounce the violence after he refused to condemn the Afula attack. In response, Arafat sent a letter to President Clinton Tuesday in which he said he strongly rejected attacks on Israeli civilians. The letter was followed Wednesday by a condemnation in a speech before the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly and the tall to Rabin.

Arafat and Rabin also discussed remaining issues in the Israel-PLO negotiations on Palestinian autonomy in the occupied Gaza Strip and West Bank region of Jericho.

(AP) JERUSALEM (AP) PLO chief Yasser Arafat called Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and told him he rejects violent acts by Palestinian extremists opposed to the peace talks with Israel, Rabin's spokesman said today. But the Palestinian militant group that claimed responsibility for Wednesday's deadly bus bombing, its second in a week, warned today it was planning three more such attacks.

Wednesday's bombing killed six people in the coastal town of Hadera. A leaflet circulated by the Muslim fundamentalist group Hamas, the leading opponent of the Israel-PLO peace talks, warned Israeli Arabs not to use public buses and to avoid "crowded Israeli areas." It also scorned Arafat for speaking out against the violence. Twelve Israelis have been killed in two bus bombings within a week, including seven who died in a blast in the northern town of Afula on April 6. The bombers in both attacks also died. Hamas claimed responsibility for both bombings.

The leaflets distributed today said the Hadera bombing was the "second in a series of five attacks" planned by Izzedine.
