But Ortega returned home Saturday from a regional summit saying President Bush had shown interest in enlisting the help of other Latin American presidents to change Ortega’s decision to end the 19- month-old truce. “I interpret this as a predisposition of President Bush, amid all his rhetoric, of negotiating this matter of the truce with the mediation” of Latin American presidents, Ortega said. Luis Sanchez, a spokesman for the National Opposition Union, said the cancellation of the cease-fire ‘‘places the electoral process under a state of siege.” He spoke to Radio Catolica, Nicaragua’s Roman Catholic Church radio station, in a telephone interview from San Jose, Costa Rica, where the summit was held. He called Ortega’s plan ‘‘a maneuver to intimidate the population.” Before leaving Costa Rica, Ortega announced that his leftist Sandinista government will end the cease-fire with U.S.-backed Contra rebels, but he did not say when. Ortega said Friday the cease-fire could not hold because of stepped up attacks by rebels. ‘ The drop of water that made the glass spill over” was an attack Oct. 21 in which 19 soldiers died, he told an audience at the University of Costa Rica. Ortega said his government will formally announce Tuesday whether it will extend the truce with the Contras for another month. It was presumed he would end the cease-fire then. For 19 months, the government had been extending the truce, usually at the beginning of every month. Ortega said he had spoken with presidents Carlos Andres Perez of Venezuela and Oscar Arias of Costa Rica at the summit and that they told him they were (Please See OPPOSITION, Page 8A)5 Killed In Bridge Collapse By JAMES JEFFERSON Associated Press Writer HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. — A pedestrian bridge with as many as 50 people on it collapsed Saturday afternoon, killing five people and seriously injuring 18, after some rocked the span back and forth, authorities said.    g One other person was believed missing after the 59-foot-high, 200- to 300-foot-long steel suspension bridge fell into the Little Red River in north-central Arkansas, said Wayne Milligan of the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office. Coroner Dwight Olmstead identified the dead as Jason Williams, 16, of Muldrow, Okla.; Dana Waltman, ll, of Van-cleve, Miss.; David Shane Warren, 13, of Mayfield, Ky.; Catrina Cotrell of Stratford, Okla., in her mid-20s and Gayla Carlton of Prim, in her 30s. Rescue crews with chainsaws cut through thick timbers and brought in cranes to remove the wreckage of the 77-year-old bridge and look for people who might be trapped underneath. The 30 to 50 people on the bridge had been rocking it, Milligan said. “The cable on the upstream side broke and the bridge fell to one side. The other cable broke and the whole thing came down,” he said. “It just happened so quickly that no one had a chance to cry for help,” said Daniel Rafferty of Seymour, Mo., who was part of a church group visiting the popular recreational spot. “... They didn’t know what happened. It was pure terror. Arms | were flailing. People were panicking. Ev<* eryone was trying to save themselves.” Eighteen people were taken to Cleburne County Memorial Hospital in Heber Springs, which is five miles northwest of the bridge, said hospital (Please See KILLED, Page 8A) CELEBRATION: Clemson’s Wesly McFadden celebrates a touchdown fans reach out to congratulate him.

Rolling Stones Roll Up Ticket Record By TRIP DUBARD Associated Press Writer COLUMBIA — Rolling Stones fans got what they wanted Saturday as they spent about $1.5 million in 3% hours on tickets for the rock band’s Clemson University concert Nov. 26. “Y’all ready?” asked security officer Mackie Stewart as the Carolina Coliseum prepared to sell the $31.50 tickets Saturday morning. More than 1,000 people on hand responded with yells and applause. Some 47,500 tickets to the show went on sale at IO a.m. in locations around South Carolina as well as two computer locations in North Carolina and Georgia, said Cliff Corbett, concert promoter with C & C Entertainment of Camden. By I: OO p.m. the tickets were gone — a value of about $1.49 million. Clemson has already bought 9,500 tickets which will be resold to students on Nov. I. “This will break every record ever in South Carolina for a concert,” Corbett predicted. “I can’t think of a show that can ever exceed this.” While sales in Greenville, Spartanburg and Clemson were done on a first-come, first-serve basis, ticket sales in Columbia were determined by a lottery. Even so, some fans couldn’t resist sleeping out for a chance to see the legendary band. Tina Ferro, 21, and Brian Harley, 19, said they and another friend from the University of South Carolina were too excited to sleep. The three spent the night driving around and eating donuts while they waited for ticket booths to open. “We were scared we were going to oversleep,” Ms. Ferro said. Though unlucky in the lottery, the two huddled underneath a quilt by a pillar (See ROLLING STONES, Page 8A) Bokker From $1,000 Suits To Prison Orange: Tumble Was Fast And Hard; Upward Trip Much Longer By PAUL NOWELL Associated Press Writer TOO MUCH WOLFPACK: South Carolina's Harold Green (22) tries to break away from rushing N.C. State Staff Photo By Ginny Southworth players as the Gamecocks go down for their second loss of the season. For the story, see Page 1B. CHARLOTTE — On the day Jim Bakker was sent to prison, his clothing symbolized just how far the disgraced PTL leader had fallen in less than three years. When Bakker entered the federal courthouse last Tuesday, he was wearing a $1,000 gray glen plaid suit. By that evening, he was dressed in an orange jumpsuit like the rest of the inmates at a medi-um-security prison in Alabama. Bakker, the charismatic preacher whose PTL televangelism empire brought in $129 million in revenues and employed about 2,000 people in 1986, enjoyed the life of a Hollywood jet setter along with his wife, Tammy Faye. The Bakkers owned several lavish homes in North Carolina, California and Tennessee. They drove Rolls-Royce and Mercedes Benz automobiles, bought expensive clothes and jewelry and dined in five-star restaurants. “The Lord has us on a rollercoaster ride and we’re holding on for dear life,” Bakker once said. The low point in that ride came this JIM BAKKER: From a suit in the morning to prison orange at night. past week when U.S. District Judge ordered Bakker to begin serving his 45-year prison sentence immediately.
