White, former Texas agriculture commissioner, dies
WASHINGTON (AP) — John C. White, a confidant of presidents and leaders of both parties who served in the Carter administration and as Texas agriculture commissioner for more than a quarter century, has died.
White, former chairman of the Democratic National Committee and deputy agriculture secretary in the Carter administration, died Friday at Georgetown University Hospital, where he had been receiving treatment for complications of pneumonia since Dec. 30, his family said. He was 70.
President Clinton, who as a young man worked with White in George McGovern’s 1972 presidential campaign, praised White in a statement.
“His decency, perseverance and humor are a model for all of us who face the challenges and possibilities within our political system to move ideas forward and improve people’s lives. John dedicated his life in serve to the Democratic Party and this nation.’’ Former Treasury Secretary Lloyd Bentsen, a fellow Texas Democrat, said he was “saddened at the loss of a dear friend and trusted adviser.... John White made an enormous contribution to his state and the nation.”
Lawmaker Goes To Bat For Jilted Lottery Winner
HOUSTON (AP) — A state lawmaker who sponsored legislation creating the Texas lottery says the New Jersey policeman holding a $10.5 million Lotto Texas ticket that state officials won’t pay should get his money.
Houston state Rep. Ron Wilson said he plans to clarify the law and said Scott Wenner of Riverside, NJ., should be given the jackpot because he had no idea he was buying a ticket from an unlicensed seller.
Meanwhile, lottery spokesman Steve Levine said lottery director Nora Linares and Wilson will meet next week to talk about the case.
“First of all. I don’t want there to be a question about whether an individual who is in Mr. Wenner’s situation in the future can get their money,” Wilson said in Saturday editions of the Houston Chronicle. “I’m going to change the law so that it’s clear that even if someone out of state buys their ticket from a service, it’s OK Secondly, I want to make sure Mr Wenner gets his money."
The lottery denied Wenner’s claim a week ago, ruling that the company that sold him the lottery ticket was not a licensed dealer.
UAW, GM Strike Deal to End Parts Plant Walkout
FLINT, Mich (AP) — After settling a three-day strike that idled workers at nine plants, General Motors rushed to resume shipping to other plants in danger of closing because they’re running out of supplies
Union officials agreed to let about
300 workers return to the AC Delco Flint East complex today to ship parts left on loading docks when the walkout began Wednesday.
The workers probably would be back in the plant for the second shift this afternoon and might be able to prevent another three or four plants from closing, said Don Beauchamp, shop committee chairman of United Auto Workers Local 651.
The walkout by 6,800 workers at the Flint complex already forced all or part of nine plants to close, idling more than 30,000 workers. The Flint workers struck in a dispute over staff size and use of outside suppliers.
No Complaints of Health Problems on use of Gas Additive, Officials Say
FORT WORTH. Texas (AP) — No concerns have been raised in Texas about a new compound added to gasoline to meet new federal standards for air quality in four of the state’s metropolitan areas, officials say.
The compound, known as MTBE — for methyl tertiary butyl ether — was added because federal requirements for using new blends of gasoline fuels took effect on Jan. I.
Despite reports of ailments in Alaska, Colorado, New Jersey and Montana when MTBE was added to gasoline there, there have been no reports of complaints in Texas, said Joann
Wiersema, manager of toxicology and risk assessment for the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission.
Gas stations in parts of Texas began selling fuels with MTBE and other additives in November. Stations in Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, El Paso and Beaumont-Port Arthur have been required to sell only the cleaner-burning, “reformulated" gasoline since Jan. I.
Mexico Loan Guarantees Mired In Partisanship
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Clinton is calling on Congress to put aside partisan wrangling and “do the right thing” by passing a $40 billion financial rescue package for Mexico. But there are few signs that lawmakers are willing to listen.
Instead, Republicans and Democrats are blaming each other for the delays that have put the package of U.S. loan guarantees to Mexico in jeopardy.
Republicans, who control the House and Senate, said they still believed the measure could win congressional approval, but some conceded the hurdles become more difficult with each passing day.
“As I have repeatedly advised the executive branch, it is my strong view that the risks of defeat go up in direct relation to the delay in consideration of the measure,” said Rep. Jim Leach.

30% OFFBill seeks to allow more rabies testing
MCALLEN, Texas (AP) — A rabies outbreak has led a South Texas lawmaker to introduce a bill in the Texas Legislature to allow veterinarians to move more quickly to detain animals suspected of having the disease.
Under present law, the only way a veterinarian could detain an animal “is if he had cause to believe a person may have become infected with rabies. This is one step too late,” said state Rep. Roberto Gutierrez, D-McAllen.
Gutierrez introduced legislation on Thursday in Austin that would allow vets to test an animal that may be in the early stages of rabies, instead of waiting for the animal to infect a person.
Gutierrez said recent cases of rabies, including the death of a 14-year-old Edinburg boy, prompted him to introduce a stronger rabies quarantine law.
A statewide rabies quarantine has been imposed for the first time in state
history as the result of the spread of virulent strains of the disease. The outbreak has spread to 18 Texas counties since it started in 1988, raising fears that the disease might spread into the state’s cities.
An effort to stay the spread of rabies in South Texas will start Feb. 14 when bait containing a rabies vaccine will be dropped by plane on a 12,000-square-mile zone. This bait is targeted for wildlife, particularly coyotes.
The zone will stretch from Maverick County between Eagle Pass and Laredo on up to an area south of San Antonio and end north of Corpus Christi, said Gayne Feameyhough, director of the Rabies Vaccination Project of the Texas Department of Health.
The disease has killed four people in Texas since 1990, while more than 1,600 more have undergone rabies inoculations after being exposed to the
Rabies is preventable through vaccination, but is usually fatal once it moves into nerve tissue.
Although coyotes and dogs arc the most common transmitters of rabies, all warmblooded animals are fair game for the disease.
In recent weeks, rabies has victimized at least eight domestic animals.
