The proceedings against Sad- dam, which started Oct. 19 and were suspended the same day, will go forward amid daily re- minders of the turmoil that has followed his removal. Four aid workers, including two Cana- dians, have been kidnapped, the Canadian government an- nounced Sunday. The Canadian Foreign Minis- try did not identify the two or give any details of the kidnap- ping. The other two victims were widely reported to be an Ameri- can and a Briton, but U.S. mili- tary officials said they had no re- ports of an American being kidnapped. Police in the northern city of Kirkuk said they had arrested 10 men who had prepared car bombs and had written instruc- tions from a former top deputy to Saddam to kill the judge who led the preparation of charges against the former dictator. The arrests were made Satur- day in a predawn raid on a house near Kirkuk. Plainclothes police- men who stormed the house found a link between Saddam's former security apparatus the RAMSEY, PAGE A-6 Congressmen hurt in Baghdad wreck A military vehicle carrying American lawmakers overturned on the way to the Baghdad air- port Saturday, injuring two con- gressmen. Rep. Tim Murphy, R-Pa., was airlifted to a military hospital in Germany for an MRI on his neck, and Rep. Ike Skelton, D- Mo., was taken to a Baghdad hospital, said Rep. Jim Marshall, D-Ga., who was not hurt. The delegation was riding in a boxlike military vehicle that troops called the "ice cream that streaked through the middle of the road to deter on- coming motorists. Shortly after dark, a speeding tanker truck re- fused to yield, Marshall said that "all of a sudden brakes got slammed on. Then we hit some- thing and go off the side of the road and tip over." WHAT A CHILD'S FROWN MAY HIDE Global economy has silver lining David Lassman Staff photographer LAKE DUTCHER, 4, is all smiles as she cuddles her cat Abigale while sitting in her mother Wendy's lap at their home in Morrisville. Lake recently had her four front teeth capped, a back tooth filled and another pulled. Dental care gaps cause pain for low-income children By Marnie Eisenstadt Staff writer Lake Dutcher came into her living room holding a bottle of Children's Motrin. The 4-year-old wanted more, but it wasn't time yet. She had to wait out the pain for another hour. The Morrisville girl recent- ly had her four front teeth capped, a back tooth filled and another pulled. When she goes back to the dentist in January, she will have another tooth pulled and one more filled. Her problems began in May, when one of her teeth became so infected that her entire face swelled. Her moth- er tried to get her to a dentist, but none would see her. They either didn't accept Medicaid patients, didn't do extensive work on small children, or both. Wendy Dutcher finally took Lake to the emergency room, then begged a Syracuse practice to see her a few days later. Last year in Central New York, about 200 children ended up in emergency rooms for dental problems. Statewide, that number is annually. Many of their problems, like Lake's, progressed from routine cavities that didn't get proper care to painful ab- scesses, infections and horri- ble decay. Head Start coordinators, pre-kindergarten teachers, dentists and public health ad- vocates in Central New York say such problems are not un- usual. They have looked into the mouths of 5-year-old chil- AS ROUTINE, PAGE A-6 Photo courtesy of the Dutcher family LAKE DUTCHER, 4, is shown in her school portrait taken before she had caps put on her four front teeth. Globalization of work force hurts those who lose jobs, but it keeps inflation low. By Martin Crutsinger The Associated Press Washington While Alan Greenspan has won praise for his successful 18-year battle to keep inflation under control, he's the first to say he's had a lot of help. Among those most responsible are tens of millions of workers in China, India and Eastern Europe. Adding all those workers to the global economy has made the Federal Reserve's inflation- fighting job easier by increasing competition. That has helped hold down labor costs the biggest single expense for em- ployers and, as a result, prices. It has come at a cost: Many of the jobs being done overseas used to be in America. Last week, General Motors Corp. announced plans to cut more than a quarter of its North American manufacturing jobs in all and close 12 fa- cilities by 2008. Those cuts will be added to the more than 3 mil- lion manufacturing jobs one in six that have been lost since mid-2000. "U.S. manufacturing jobs have withered over the past five years and many of those jobs are never coming said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's Economy.com, a pri- vate consulting firm. j For those U.S. workers who still have jobs, the pressure on their wages has intensified as companies use the threat of mov- ing more production overseas where labor is far cheaper as IETTER EDUCATION, PAGE A-6 For modern docs, human patient simulators are no dummies By James T. Mulder Staff writer The man lying on the emer- gency room stretcher was fading fast. He had been in a car wreck and Dr. Jennifer Fredericks, a first-year resident at SUNY Up- state Medical University, needed to diagnose and treat him quick- iy. He had bruises around his eyes. His broken ribs felt like crushed crackers when she touched the side of his chest. "My head hurts. Where am he mumbled. Fredericks suspected the man had a collapsed lung and inserted a tube into his chest to remove fluid. "That's not his said a faculty member out of ear- shot who was watching Freder- icks from behind a one-way mir- ror in the next room. "Arc you going to kill Suddenly the .man's blood oxygen level and respiratory rate plummeted. He was barely breathing. Fredericks tried to in- sert a breathing tube through the man's mouth into his windpipe, but couldn't because his para- lyzed vocal cords had closed. She picked up a scalpel and sliced a small hole in his neck just below the Adam's apple. She inserted a tube to reopen his airway and hooked him up to a ventilator. His chest started to rise and fall again as his breath- ing returned to normal. The young doctor smiled in relief as a collective cheer went up in the room next door among those watching her performance. All this, for saving a dummy's life. Welcome to SUNY Upstate Medical University's new virtual ER at 550 E. Gencsce St., where the patients arc computerized mannequins known as human patient simulators that speak. moan, bleed, drool, urinate, blink their eyes and perform many other lifelike functions. Complex internal wiring and software allow each dummy to have a heart attack, break into a sweat from a biotcrrorism attack or feign just about any other in- jury or illness.
