It is not easy to access higher education, said Peter Kerwien, general manager for industrial development at Washington Water Power Co. and one of 75 business, government and academic leaders at the summit. Each of the 11 schools at the conference brought catalogs listing services for business and industry. The result, Kerwien said, was a stack of documents that could leave small-business owners reeling. Community Colleges of Spokane brought its Yellow Pages for Business and Technology. Washington State University toted out a 60-page list of economic development programs. Walla Walla Community College showed off its Center for Management Development. Maybe we need something like a Sears Roebuck catalog of higher education in the region, Kerwien said. Something where a guy starting out in business can find help quickly and easily. The daylong meeting included live video presentations from Eastern Washington University, Gonza- KSKN to carry home-shopping service KSKN-TV (Channel 22) is joining the home shopping fad, launching a seven day a week service today. The Spokane independent station, which tiled for bankruptcy last month in Tucson, Ariz., will carry Consumer Discount Network, a national home shopping service out of Houston, Texas. Consumer Discount Network will air 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. - Viewers can order merchandise demonstrated and advertised over the channel. Orders are paid for by credit card or personal check and KSKN receives a percentage of the sales made in this area. . The Spokane station, while moving to home shopping, intends to Dorr- charges in Idaho. Dorr began to cry and asked the court for leniency. "Every time you turn on the TV, what do you see?, he said. Aryan Nations this, neo-Nazi that. "I get upset with some of these . things, he added. The judge then called a brief re-' cess so Dorr could regain his composure. When court resumed, the prose-. cutor said the tears in Dorrs eyes should be for what he did to his parents or his attitudes toward minorities and Jews. Hicks said Dorr, after pleading guilty, has not cooperated with Secret Service agents, who still havent located plates used to make counterfeit $20 and $50 bills printed as part of the conspiracy. Hes coming in here with tears in his eyes, asking for mercy from the court, Hicks said, but what has he done to deserve it? Dorr said, The tears in my eyes are tears of frustration. He denied ever being a member of the Aryan Nations. Im also not a member of the Ku Klux Klan, he added. Dorr said he couldnt bring himself to read a prepared statement. ! Im just going to ask the court for , leniency in passing sentence. Spokane, E 7i leaders say schools more user-friendly ga University, WSU and the University of Idaho on research in agriculture, forestry, mining, engineering, health care and small-business development. On hand to field questions were the presidents of WSU, UI, Gonza-;a, North Idaho College, Spokane immunity College ana Walla Walla Community College. The high technology capabilities in this region are mind-boggling, said Paul Redmond, chief executive officer of Washington Water Power. We have seen all the resources available to us, he said. Now we must use those resources. Business, industry and education must work together if economic development is to occur. The educational summit was organized as an offshoot of last years Inland Empire Economic Summit in Spokane and included representatives from 21 counties in Eastern Washington and North Idaho. UI President Richard Gibb cautioned the group that there are no "quick, simple or easy solutions no panaceas to the regions economic troubles. We should be confident, optimistic, but also realistic, Gibb said. We cannot expect change overnight. We must be careful what we sell to the public. carry regular entertainment pi grams during evening hours and on Sunday mornings. Products sold over Consumer Discount Network will be arranged according to theme hours, said company spokesman Mark Leonhard. Early mornings, for example, will feature toys. Later in the day, major home purchases such as computers or entertainment items will be featured, he said. Leonhard said Consumer Discount Network now ranks third in the number of U.S. homes it reaches across the country. The Spokane Pacific station is its Northwest. (Continued from page 6)- The prosecutor said Dorr had served as great Aryan warrior and Aryan Nations security chief, and appeared on a television talk show in that capacity. Now, all of a sudden, he says he was not officially a member, Hicks added. Dorrs mother, Rosamund Dorr, of San Jose, Calif., told the judge her son was raised as a Roman Catholic and followed the tenants of that belief, not those of the Aryan Nations. "Please, your honor, for our family and David, I beg you for leniency for him, she said. The court was told that the FBI developed the case against Dorr througn the use of at least two informants. Informant Harvey Williams, who lives in Mountlake Terrace near Seattle, worked for the FBI from June 1984 until March 1986 and was paid $10,398, FBI agent Wayne Mams testified. The other informant, the late Alva Jefferson, known in white supremacist circles as Ted Lewis, worked for the FBI for about 18 months and was paid $750 a week plus expenses, which included apartments in San Jose, Calif., FBI agent Ken Thompson testified.

Doors open at 8 am; auction starts at 10 a.m. Working in small groups, conference-goers listed programs of top priority for business and higher education. Most, said Whitworth Colleges Don Spencer, went back to better communications. This all boils down to some things we have known all along. We must increase communication between the universities and high-tech industries, he said. And we need better two-way transfer of technology more bulletins, conferences and seminars. Kerwien, who met with a group that listed priorities for small business, said universities need to do a better job of training students with the entrepreneurial spirit. Most new businesses in the Inland Northwest, he said, employ fewer than 20 workers. A WSU accounting graduate must be ready to work not only as an accountant, but as a receptionist, purchasing agent and office manager. Robert Smith, dean of WSUs graduate school, put in his pitch for more and better health research and medical library facilities. Phil Beukema, vice president for academics at EWU, added a call for national video delivery of continuing education classes for health care workers through Spokanes Intercollegiate Center for Nursing Education.

The college had hoped to get a permanent replacement for President Robert Mounce, who retires in August. But after visits by two finalists in April, Whitworth BLACK officials decided to reopen the search for a new president. Black will start as interim president at the end of August, when Mounce retires to speak and write. He expects to serve for four to six months. I want to make sure that we dont retreat and that we dont leave important issues unaddressed, Black said of his role as interim president. Mounce had been approached about staving on, Black said, but he declined because of arrangements already made by him and his wife, Jean. rHe and Jean felt that they could not break those commitments, Black said. A new set of candidates probably would be visiting the Whitworth campus this fall, Black said. We do not want to have a visit of the candidates in the summer when were in adjournment. College officials hope to decide on a new president By January 1988. Attorney says racist released by mistake Associated Press RALEIGH Federal authorities in Missouri marred what had been a textbook case of effective law enforcement when they released one of the three white supremacists caught with fugitive Glenn Miller, U.S. Attorney Sam Currin said Friday. 'Everything in this investigation had gone right . . . until this, Currin said. This was the fly in the ointment. Miller, Douglas Sheets and Robert Eugene Jack Jackson were held Friday in a federal prisoners facility in Missouri, pending a Monday hearing on whether they should be returned to North Carolina. The fourth man, Tony Wydra, 19, of Fayetteville, was released Thursday without being charged. Currin said he had conferred Thursday by telephone with federal attorneys in Springfield, Mo., and had asked them to detain Wydra. But Robert Ulrich, U.S. attorney for western Missouri, said he did not have enough evidence to hold Wydra, Currin said. On Thursday, Currin said Wydra had been completely indoctrinated in the Identity religion, which preaches white supremacy.

Kent Amos and his wife. Carmen, had only two children. Today, they have 42 boys and girls and may soon have even more. Nearly all of the additions to their family are high school-age students who came from broken homes. With the love and guidance of the Amoses, many have transformed their bleak lives into ones with promising futures. Read how one remarkable couple has helped straighten out dozens of children in Sundays PARADE. acquitted earlier this month in federal court in Elizabeth City on charges that he had conspired to blow up the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala. Two other men facing the same charges including Jackson, who was tried in his absence were found guilty. After he was found innocent, Wydra started to make arrangements to get in contact with Miller, Jack-son and Sheets, Currin said Thursday. Currin said Friday there was no way to know where Wydra had gone after his release, and no reason to assume that his rao1 iervor had abated. Federal officials in Missouri released Wydra before they had finished searching a van and a mobile home in Ozark, Mo., where the four stayed Wednesday night before their pre-dawn capture Thursday, Currin said. Ulrich apparently thought he had insufficient grounds on which to hold Wydra because Wydra, unlike the other three, was not a fugitive, Currin said. Currins office issued warrants for the arrest of Miller, Jackson and Sheets almost two weeks ago. Dinner 6 Evenings from 5:00 P.M. Closed Sundays (509) 535-7502 Harness and Saddlery Co.
