MALAKOFF, Texas (AP) — A meeting between Ozarka Drinking Water Co. officials and members of a grass-roots group fighting the company’s plan to take water from a historic spring almost hit the boiling point.
Police Chief Don Johnson and two off-duty officers were called in Wednesday night by city officials as a precautionary measure to keep die peace at the meeting organized by Ozarka to discuss their plans to pump thousands of gallons of water from Rohr Spnngs.
Dale Groom, chairman of the Rohr Springs Citizens Committee, estimated 200 people attended the meeting.

How— Republican lay Waco Hiartngt to Bo ‘Fair And Open*
WASHINGTON (AP) — Seeking to reassure the Clinton administration, a key House Republican is promising “fair and open" hearings on the 1993 raid on the Branch Davidian compound near Waco. Texas, and “not to go after anyone."
Rep. Bill Zeliff, R-N.H., chairman of a House Government Reform and Oversight subcommittee, was responding Wednesday to a statement by Trea-sury Secretary Robert E Rubm expressing concern that upcoming hcanngs on the raid mas erode support for firearms laws.

Sen. Aden Specter, R-Pa, who has been pushing for Senate hearings on the Waco debacle, said he was “a little supnsed that Secretary Rubin opposes the heanngs because I think that people at the highest levels of government have to be held accountable "
“I think there are questions that need to be answered," said Specter, who is

Even though the proposed change — which White House officials said Wednesday the president had not yet decided to embrace — was intended to keep jobs in California that would otherwise go out of state, the California congressional delegation was quick to urge the president to avoid such a compromise.

Spok—mm Poor Districts Hurt By Tax Interpretation
AUSTIN (AP) — Property-poor school districts are hit harder than rich ones by an alleged miscalculation in state education funds that’s the subject of a court battle, says a spokesman for low-wealth districts.
“Poor districts are hit doubly by this" because they rely more heavily on state aid, Craig Foster, executive director of the Equity Center, testified Wednesday.
He was called to the stand on behalf of 69 school districts suing the state over the aid calculation. Buck Wood, lawyer for the districts, said about 223 school districts would be due up to an estimated $90 million in state funds for the last school year if they prevail.
At issue in the case is the way the state comptroller figures school districts’ property wealth when tax breaks given to homeowners — particularly senior citizens — arc taken into account
