Tues..May25, 1982 toir S.F. EXAMINER B5 Heat wave on way out to make com for fog S A mini-heat wave that warmed the Bay Area and most of the rest of California with record high temperatures gave way to dramatically cooler temperatures today as the fog and normal" weather patterns returned. J While the short hot spell was welcome to tourists and residents alike, t caused some problems, apparently flaying a role in windows' popping out of two downtown San Francisco high- ' rises. 11 Three people received minor injuries as shattered glass rained down on Crowded streets. . -- " ii I; Record high temperatures were recorded throughout the state San Francisco International Airport had a reading of 91 degrees, breaking the record of 79 degrees for that date, set in 1975. San Jose reached 96, to top its former record of 92 degrees for that date, set in 1929. Records for the day were also set at Areata with 64, Eureka with 74 and Bakersfield, the hottest spot in the nation, with 107. ii This morning's temperatures were Several degrees lower than they were yesterday morning and a strong stationary surface high pressure area off the Washington and Oregon coast will continue to dominate the weather over California for several days, the National Weather Service said. '! The interior valleys will stay hot until cooler weather works its way into them tomorrow, NWS forecasters said. In downtown San Francisco yesterday, the high was 76 degrees, Oakland heated up to 89 degrees, Redwood City hit 96; Napa and San Rafael, 99; Livermore, 98; Santa Rosa, 101, and N6vato was 102 degrees. - Temperatures in the San Joaquin Valley hovered at a predicted 100 or above.

Two panes of safety glass popped Life term asked in S.F. State slayings ' A life sentence without possibility of parole will be sought by the San Francisco district attorney's office against Remie Trupo, the ex-convict accused of stabbing two students to death and wounding two others at a San Francisco State University dance two weeks ago. . Assistant District Attorney Hugh Levine said the state will not seek the death penalty as he filed amended charges against Trujillo before Municipal Judge Raymond Williamson this morning. The new charges included two counts of murder "under special circumstances," two counts of attempted murder and four counts of using a Weapon in the commission of a crime. Under the "special circumstances" language of California law, prosecutors may seek the death penalty or life imprisonment without parole Without special circumstances, in this case the fact that a multiple murder was involved, a substantially lesser sentence would be imposed if Trujillo is found guilty. Assistant Public Defender Gregory Pagan entered innocent pleas to all the felony counts against Trujillo. Trujillo, 40, is accused of slaying Alex Tang and Daniel Ttedemann, both 21-year-old seniors at the university, in a dispute that developed over a refused ticket refund at a dance sponsored by a campus Asian students group. He also is charged with wounding S.F. State student David Eck, 21, and University of San Francisco student Ramon Ng, 20. from the 31st and 15th floors of One Market Plaza yesterday at around 415 p.m. Firefighters at the scene speculated that the glass, which had been exposed to the sun all day, exploded when hit by cold winds in the late afternoon. A police spokesman said the windows may have fallen from metal frames that had loosened in the heat. Two people standing below the falling glass were treated for minor lacerations by ambulance drivers. Police barricaded Spear Street between Mission and Market Last year, several panes of glass from the building's atrium crashed into a shopping arcade the result of a larger window on the 41st floor falling out of its frame. The accident was thought to be caused by high winds. There were no injuries. Police also reported "numerous" panes of glass fell from an abandoned apartment building at 441 Ellis at 5:45 p.m., slightly injuring one man. By Norman Melnick Examiner staff writer No one coughed. No one sneezed. In fact, no one stirred in the audience of 560 people who paid $23 a plate. ' Charles Cofeon, the spellbinder, the convert to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, was speaking: "When I looked over the White House lawn that day. . ." He spread his arms. A cherubic, smile came over his un wrinkled, 50-year-old face. He said he realized in that mesmerizing moment not long ago that the legacy he was going to leave was not the fact that he had been a special counsel to former President Richard Nixon, not the fact that he had been a successful corporation lawyer, not the fact that he had argued cases before the Supreme Court of the United States. No, none of these, Colson said last night at the Moscone Convention Center. The legacy he was going to leave, he realized as he looked back that day "at the manicured White House lawn," was "that I was a convict and that I had gone to prison in disgrace and that 1 had served time" A collective sigh of affirmation rose from the audience in that vast underground room where Colson, the convicted Watergate conspirator, spoke. He spoke for over an hour to a group called Christian Media Ministries, a Bay Area religious organization that proposes to start its own radio station, KCLB-FM, at Santa Rosa. In the Bay Area there is but one radio station (KEAR FM in San Francisco) devoted exclusively to Christian religious themes "to truth commercials instead of Pepsi and Big Mac commercials," as one speaker put it last night And so Colson, quoted by Examiner columnist Mary McGrory as once saying, "I would walk over my grandmother," was invited to give the featured address to the audience of ministers and lay religious leaders. Colson has developed what George W. Cornell, Associated Press religion CHARLES COLSON From Watergate to the Gospel editor, calls "one of the fastest growing, most dynamic movements of modern times to reform prisoners and prisons." And he has done it, says Cornell, "with wholehearted dedication." So Colson became aware that day, as he had not been before, that he was destined to fall from power to disgrace, perhaps even to serve time in jail over Watergate. "I've touched so many lives since," he said. "This is what a sovereign God will do through us." His fellowship of prisoners has more than 6,000 followers. He spent last Easter morning roving through Death Row in the Indiana State Prison where only a born-again Christian by the name of Richard Moore was awake at 8 a.m. "with the biggest smile I've ever seen." Together with him and the prisoners they awakened they sang and prayed. "It was so beautiful," Colson said. Colson called prisons "pits of futility." And California, he said, was headed for a "real disaster" if it built more prisons because they added up only to a "demonstrated failure." "Eighty percent of all crime is committed by repeaters," Colson said. "Only the Gospel of Jesus Christ can deal with crime, not prisons." Colson, the gifted, experienced speaker, also sprinkled his remarks with anecdotes from his White House days, where he walked in "the marbled corridors beneath crystal chandeliers," where "every day Henry Kissinger said to the president, The decisions we make today will change the course of history.' Every day." Colson drew laughter. And he drew pained looks and expressions when he recalled his last time in San Francisco, when a scrubby-looking young man who introduced himself as a reporter threw a chocolate pie in his face. But Colson, still smiling, leavened that story by telling what the young man said after he'd been grabbed: "Well, Jesus told me to do it" And Colson responded: "Well, if Jesus told you to do it, it's all right" He also recalled the advice Nixon once gave to him when dealing with the press: "Pay no attention to the question. Give the answer you want to give" Colson said he took the advice. Still, he had what he described as immense difficulties in making the press understand that he had not converted to Christianity. He was already a Christian. "I am a convert to Jesus Christ the savior," he said with a smile. Colson told his audience, "You are part of a holy nation called by God. Never confuse the will of the majority with the win of God. They're likely to be different "We're all so egocentric. We don't see our responsibility to others. We are consumed by self by No. 1." Moreover, there was confusion between piety and righteousness, said Colson. Righteousness was blessed; piety was what "too many Christians stand for." Tim Archer, one of the singing Archers who preceded the main speaker, said 'It is an honor to be here with Mr. Colson." Mexican official: Corona confessed murders HAYWARD (LTD A Mexican consulate official told a jury today that Juan V. Corona once confessed to him that he hacked to death 25 migrant farm workers whose bodies were dug up 11 years ago this month, in what was then the worst mass-murder in the nation's history. Jesus Rodriguez Navarro said Corona, 51, confessed the Northern California killings to him in 1978 during a conversation in Soledad Prison. Speaking through an interpreter, Rodriguez said Corona told him: Yes, I did it. But I am a sick man and a sick man cannot be charged by the same standards as other men." Defense attorney Terence Hallinan disputed the testimo ny, saying that an interpretation of the Spanish word "Si, could have different meanings. The interpreter, Ines Swaney, said under questioning that Corona could have meant to say, "Whether I did it," rather than, "Yes, I did it" Corona is being retried on charges of killing the itinerant workers whose bodies were found buried in shallow graves along the Feather River in Yuba County in May of 1971. He was a farm labor contractor at the time and has maintained that he is innocent of the slayings.
