of finding congressman J WASHINGTON AP The limelight has a way of finding Steve Stockman a conservative from Southeast Texas who has logged H12 days in the House of Representatives The nondescript 38yearolds initial claim to fame Jwas his stunning upset last November of 21term powerhouse Jack Brooks chairman of 4he House Judiciary Committee That victory on a shoestring budget gave him immediate cachet in Jhe huge 73member Republican freshman class Stockmans latest foray into national media cov occurred this week after he played a small but intriguing role in the aftermath of the Oklahoma ifcity bombing The Friendswood lawmaker confirmed Sunday that on the morning of the bombing his Washington office received a cryptic handwritten fax mentioning a bomb and Oklahoma The fax sent by an antigov ernment militia activists group in Michigan initially was thrown away After staffers learned of the bombing they retrieved the fax and shared it with the FBI and National Rifle Association In separate news conferences Monday Stock man and his chief of staff stressed that they believe the fax came in after the bombing although the time stamp shows a time of If that time is accurate it would have been in Okla homa City more than an hour before the CDT bombing You get weird stuff all the time so we didnt think anything about said Stockman who is well known in gun circles as a staunch defender of gun rights In fact Stockman owes his congressional career in large measure to gun owners dissatisfaction with Brooks who had a nearperfect record of voting with the gun lobby until last

endorsed spending more mon ey on steering youths away from crime than the House The Senate plan passed unani mously Monday returns to the State House for consideration of amend ments If they are rejected a HouseSenate conference committee would nego tiate differences in the two bills This is a gettough bill on juvenile delinquents But more than that we have put some compassion into the bill as said Sen Chris Har ris RArlington a sponsor of the measure A big difference is million worth of youth crime prevention and intervention programs in the Senate bill They include providing operating funds for regional boot camps or treatment centers and broadening a program for runaways truants at risk youth and their families The additional funding which includes about million in federal dollars and the rest in state general revenue still would have to be agreed to by a HouseSenate conference committee on the twoyear state gov ernment budget Ag Commissioner outlines states concerns with Farm Bill LUBBOCK Texas AP Agri culture leaders from across Texas have drawn up nine recommenda tions they intend to offer to the Congress members writing the 1995 farm bill Texas Agriculture Commissioner Rick Perry labeled the recommenda tions as a specific and sweeping look at commodity provisions trade research and rural development Those priorities were expected to lead off a special field hearing con vened here today by the House Agriculture Committee It is a very complex group of issues but I think we have drawn them together in a very clear and con cise Perry said Monday Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts RKansas was sched uled to conduct the sevenhour hear ing Bush appoints group to save troubled agency AUSTIN AP Gov George W Bush has picked a top aide a former House speaker and a businesswoman to take over the troubled Texas Com mission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse He called it an agency rocked by If given expected Senate confir mation the three will become the first conservators to take over a state gov ernment agency Bush said Theres been bad misuse of tax payers money and we wont tolerate that in this Bush said The governor said Monday that he expects the trio to find out whats wrong what needs to be done to clean it up and we will do so in short Conservatorship was recommend ed by legislative leaders after they determined that gross financial mis management was rampant at the drug and alcohol commission The recommendation came after audits and a Texas Rangers investi gation concluded that the agency had failed to maintain proper control over assets including state funds failed to maintain adequate records and misused state money Comments by Kaelin to author worry attorneys LOS ANGELES AP Brian Kato Kaelin provided his coauthor with enough tawdry and damaging information about Simpson to give defense attorneys cause for alarm and prosecutors reason to rejoice In a 92point book outline of his interviews obtained by The Associated Press Kaelin describes Simpsons state of mind before and after the murders and says Nicole Brown Simpson feared her exhusband would kill her But although the outline is damaging to the defense it doesnt appear to con tradict Kaelins swom testimony Legal analysts say it would be risky for pros ecutors to return Kaelin to the witness stand and confront him with the state ments in the outline I think they would make a big mis take by stalling everything for another week with Kato Kaelin even though TV would love said Loyola Uni versity law professor Stan Goldman With the case dragging and the sequestered jury becoming rebellious Goldman said the prosecution may do better to proceed to the heart of its case DNA evidence that allegedly links Simpson to the murders of Ms Simp son and Ronald Goldman The outline by writer Marc Eliot as well as 17 hours of taped interviews have been subpoenaed by prosecutors and given to attorneys for both sides The authenticity of the APs copy of the outline was confirmed by three sources In the outline Eliot quotes Kaelin as saying Ms Simpson sexually tor mented her exhusband during a trip to Mexico in early 1994 She taunts him about his getting old and losing his sexual prowess and confesses to Kato that the only reason she was ever with was purely phys the outline says I cant see you making love fives times a day when youre 60 years Kaelin said she told Simpson Kaelin said that Ms Simpson told her privately One day is going to kill On June 11 the day before the mur ders Kaelin said he and Simpson watched the movie The World According to Garp and began talking about oral sex This sends into a dark and Simpson began to reminisce about watching Ms Simpson having sex with a boyfriend on her couch the outline says Kaelin also said Simpson was lonely and moody the day of the slayings When the two went to McDonalds that night Simpson wolfed down his burg er in silence and later kept staring out into according to the outline The day after the murders Eliot wrote Simpsons stare melts Kato with fear after Kaelin tells Simpson he didnt see him go into the house after the McDonalds trip and therefore couldnt help him with an alibi The statements to Eliot contrast with Kaelins dry sometimes incoherent tes timony in which he downplayed any suggestion of trouble in the Simpsons relationship and anything unusual about SimpSons behavior
