Embalming for open-casket viewing of the body is a method of preserving the body to provide a life-like appearance. Embalming is routinely done by the mortician unless the survivors specifically insist that It not be done. It is legally mandatory, however, if the body is to be transported by common carrier. In some states embalming is also required if there is more than a forty-eight hour interval between death and disposition. Brian M.

Perot offers success secret BOSTON (AP) - Ross Perot's secret for success: Don't rest on your laurels. It's as simple as that. "Get up every morning and say, "This wonderful mind that I have is a genetic gift. I am lucky to have it. I'm not going to be cocky and arrogant about it. I'm going to use it to its full potential,'" Perot said Sunday to 5,000 Boston University graduates. "Success breeds arrogance and complacency. I've worked with thousands of young people over the years, and guess what? The average people always beat the best and brightest." Perot also warned the graduates to remember those who don't have their opportunities. "When you see people in distress ... never look down on them," he said. "Just say, 'There but for the grace of God go I,' and help them. Now that's what makes America work." Closings (Continued from page 1) have decided to close 250 military bases and realign 152 others, and a third round of base-closing decisions is planned next year. However, the Clinton administration is considering delaying some of next year's closings until 1997. The 1990 Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act requires the defense secretary to make recommendations to a special commission, which holds public hearings and sends a closing list to the president. The president can accept or reject the list for any reason. If he approves the base closings, Congress has 45 days to veto them. The law requires the president and Congress to act on the list as a whole, with no revisions. Solicitor General Drew S. Days III said that provision was intended to avoid "cherry picking" by lawmakers trying to save military installations in their home districts. Specter, a former district attorney, argued on his own behalf in March, marking the first time in 22 years that a U.S. senator had faced the high court He contended the fast-track procedure keeps the president and Congress from examining whether the decision to close a particular base was fair. Such questions shouli be decided in court, Specter said. SMITH FLORAL CO. Consult with us for all Your Floral Needs Rely on us for prompt, personal service when selecting Flowers for all occasions.
