The First Cox Newspaper Fire strikes aging Dayton landmark Bush targets crime policies in FOP speech By Tim Miller COLUMBUS BUREAU COLUMBUS In a strong speech to a very receptive audience, Vice Presi Jackson voice heard in Dem party platform dent George Bush on Sunday outlined crime policies that included a call for the death penalty for dru-g "kingpins," the elimination of some military bases to fund more prisons and even changes for the movie industry. Bush WALLV NELSONSTAFF PHOTOGRAPHER By James McCartney KNIGHT-RIDDER NEWS SERVICE DENVER The new Democratic Party platform advocates a sweeping wish list of social programs in the party's liberal tradition, but suggests no way of raising the money. The document, approved by the party's platform committee late Saturday night, promises "to reassert progressive values" and to "reinvest in people." It proposes dozens of programs in health, education, housing, law enforcement and many other fields to meet those objectives. But in its nearly 4,000 words the shortest party platform in 40 years there is not a line that so much as theorizes on where the money to finance this wish list might come from. In fact, when supporters of Jesse Jackson sought to insert a strongly worded amendment to nearly double taxes "on the richest Americans" to 50 percent and impose a five-year freeze in military spending, they were politely, but firmly, put down by backers of Massachusetts Gov.

Michael Dukakis. After rejecting the Jackson amendment, the Dukakis forces, headed by former Maryland congressman Michael Barnes, made no effort to produce a financing proposal of their own.

Sunday. The fire, fed by tires and other trash, was brought under control by Dayton fire- Bush said there are clear differences between himself and Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, his expected opponent in the fall presidential election. In his 30-minute speech to the national board of the Fraternal Order of Police, he chastised Dukakis for opposing the death penalty, for supporting furlough programs for prisoners and for describing himself as a "card-carrying member of the American Civil Liberties Union." Bush received loud ovations from the crowd of several hundred when he called for the death penalty for drug pushers who are "poisoning our kids." He later added, "I have never been a member (of the ACLU) and I never will be because they are always coming down on the side of the criminals and less on the side of the victims of crime." Near the end of his speech that included praise of police officers as "living heroes," Bush conceded, "I have an uneasy feeling that I'm preaching to the choir." At a news conference following the speech, Bush refused to name what military bases he might close if elected, but restated his position that $2 billion to $5 billion is being spent each year on unneeded domestic military bases, money that could be used to fund state SEE BUSH4A Cautious farmer weathering drought Still hoping for crop-saving rain "TfcB. OHIO FARMER SOME WIN, SOME LOSE4A Tales of bribes, bugs dog figure in Pentagon probe This is the first in an intermittent series of stories looking at how a Miami Valley farm family is coping with the drought of 1988.

By Kevin Harter NORTH MIAMI VALLEY BUREAU CASSTOWN Blankets of puffy white clouds above the rolling hills of the Knoop farm in eastern Miami County brought some relief from the sun Friday morning, but no crop-saving rain. While the cloud cover made the morning cooler than those on other mornings, it gave way to 90-degree heat and gave Fred Knoop, 70, reason to wonder why he leaves the maple tree-shaded house he was born and raised in to sample each new morning and inspect the fields. "I'm leery as hell, and I don't know where it will end," Knoop said of the drought's impact. "I don't even have to come out anymore it's not worth looking at." As evidence, Knoop showed a rain gauge that had collected less than half an inch of rain in the last month. The rain had evaporated, leaving a dead moth and dust behind.

"This is a losing proposition for ev PROBE IMPACT4 A feet more people than ever before." Knoop, a 1940 graduate of the Ohio State University School of Agriculture, hopes the drought's impact won't endanger the chances of a fifth generation working the farm cleared by his greatgrandfather in 1836. His wife, Lorraine, son, Dan, and nephew, Albert Gross, also help out on the farm. Knoop hopes the family will remain deeply rooted on the land. Knoop, who is chairman of the Ohio Farmers Union Miami County chapter and was treasurer of the Miami East school board for 17 years, has never worked a job outside the family's land. But he sees that changing.

"Right now, it looks like you've got to have a good job on the side to make it in farming," he said. Like all Midwest farmers, Knoop By Bob Drogin and Glenn F. Bunting LOS ANGELES TIMES SEATTLE Melvyn R. Paisley, a former assistant Navy secretary and central figure in the Pentagon fraud scandal, was accused a decade ago by fellow executives of bribing military officials and bugging the offices of competitors, according to retired Boeing Co. officials and documents obtained by the Los Angeles Times.

Two executives became so alarmed that in 1978, shortly after leaving the company, they went to Boeing management to express concern about Pais- ley's conduct. At the special management briefing, they also complained that Paisley charged fees for prostitutes to his expense account, according to an agenda of the session made available to the Times. "Usually every major company has one guy who does the dirty business," said James Durst, a former Boeing executive. "He was the guy."

By Richard Witkin NEW YORK TIMES NEWS SERVICE NEW YORK To prevent accidents caused by the aging of jet airliners, officials say the government will propose a new rule that, for the first time, would limit the number of flights planes can make in their lifetimes.

The tentative proposal centers on the number of flights that metal-fatigue tests show a given type of plane can safely endure. Each type of aircraft would be allowed to make half that number of flights. Work on the rule, which began months ago, was speeded after an accident in Hawaii on April 28 in which a large part of the upper fuselage of an Aloha ALMANAC 6A EDITORIALS 10A ANN LANDERS 2C HOROSCOPE 11C BRIDGE 11C LIFESTYLE 1C CLASSIFIED 4C LOTTERY 2A COMICS IOC ROADWATCH 3A DEATHS 3C SPORTS IB TELEVISI0N6B AT THE M0VIES8B SEE FLIGHTS12A.
