All 4 ' ,: '"n"j -. , -i I,- L CAMPAIGN: Question on rights From page 1A VITAL STATISTICS 'gazette' photo by Todd Mclriturf TALKING IT OVER WITH TABOR: Congressional candidate Eric Tabor talks over election issues with Art Merchant of Cedar Rapids during a campaign stop in Cedar Rapids' Czech Village Thursday morning. Tabor, a Democrat, is seeking the 2nd District seat in the U.S. House-of Representatives held by Republican Tom Tauke. Bush and Dukakis both were on morning television programs while embarking on another dawn-to-dusk dash through key battleground states. Bush began his day with a vigorous defense of himself and his running mate in an interview with Bryant Gumbel on NBC's "Today" show. The vice president heatedly denied that his attacks on Dukakis over the Massachusetts prison furlough program had racist overtones for citing the case of Willie Horton, who is black. Horton, a convicted murderer, brutalized a Maryland couple after escaping, but Bush said his commercial "didn't have any reference to his race and no picture on it.v He said Dukakis countered with an ad showing a picture of a Hispanic prisoner who had escaped from a federal prison program and committed crimes. Gumbel asked "which . George Bush" voters concerned with "the deteriorating state of race relations" would get: "the one who voted for fair housing in 1968 when it was unpopular or the man . who selected . Dan Quayle, who has a terrible civil rights record." "You're going to get both," Bush replied, "because I stand by my record on Dan Quayle and I don't like these attacks on his integrity or his civil rights or anything else." Dukakis began his 55th birthday in the interview chair at "CBS This Morning," saying that despite the public polls, the race was beginning to break his way. He said voters are unhappy with the Republican campaign, and added, "That's one of the reasons that they're taking a very strong second look at me and Mr. Bush, and seeing some very important differences." In an appearance in Fairless Hills, Pa., Dukakis continued his emphasis on the war on drugs. He outlined a proposal' for a $400 million federal contribution for a federal", state and local alliance to assure drug-free schools across the country by the next decade, including drug education programs beginning in kindergarten and community advisory councils . to coordinate local efforts 2 die in Mexico City shootout School voters give nod to Bush MEXICO CITY (AP) At least two people were killed and 15 wounded in a shootout late Thurs day between rival labor factions inside a Mexico City luxury hotel, news reports said. The private Televisa newscast "24 Hours" said that about 200 dissident labor activists stormed the Hotel Presidente Chapultepec and began firing at members of the pro-government Mexican Workers Federation. Televisa said the shootout lasted about a half-hour before police arrived and began arresting labor unionists. The report said about 200 people were arrested. An undetermined number of gunmen were still inside the hotel Thursday night, the report said, adding that police had surrounded the site. DES MOINES (AP) Democrat Michael Dukakis is generally given a slight edge among voting-age Iowans, but thousands of the state's youngsters handed George Bush a narrow victory Thursday, officials said. In a statewide mock election that involved about one-fourth of the state's secondary students, Bush polled just over 51.6 percent of the total, while Dukakis, got 48.3 percent, said Cordell Sven-galis, a social studies consultant for the Iowa Department of Education.
