New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 20, 2001, New Braunfels, Texas Friday, July 20, 2001 — HERALD-ZEITUNG — Page 3AGraduate rate may slipDemographer: Growth, diversity to affect higher education By Kelley Shannon Associated Press Writer AUSTIN (AP) — Population gains in Texas, notably in big cities and among minorities, likely will pose greater challenges in higher education in the coming years, the state’s demographer said Thursday. Of particular concern is a projected decline in the percentage of Texans who have a high school diploma, demographer Steve Murdock told the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. More detailed U.S. Census Bureau figures will be released later. But it is estimated that Texas dropped from 39th nationally in 1990 in the percentage of adults who graduated from high school to 46th by the time the decade ended, Murdock said. “I want to point out they’re estimates. I hope they’re not correct,” said Murdock, chief demographer for the Texas State Data Center at Texas A&M University. Texas appears to have maintained its ranking as 23rd nationally in per centage of college graduates, he said. The backdrop for Murdock’s presentation to the higher education board is the board’s “Closing the Gaps” plan to prepare more Texas students for college and to help get them enrolled. Among other goals, the board wants to close gaps in participation among income levels and add 500,000 more students by 2015. Higher Education Commissioner Don Brown said the 500,000-student goal may have to be revised, depending on upcoming census data. Population growth and increasing ethnic diversity in the state could pose unforeseen obstacles to boosting higher education, Murdock said. “The gap that needs to be closed is likely to be greater than we anticipated,” Murdock said. The state’s population grew more than expected, to 20.8 million in 2000, up from 16.9 million in 1990, with significant growth among minorities in the biggest cities and along the Texas-Mexico border, Murdock said. Hispanic and black populations grew faster than did the Anglo population. It is anticipated Texas will be less than half Anglo by 2005. Looking ahead 30 years, Murdock said unless there are overall improvements in the socio-economic achievement of minorities in Texas, the state’s labor force will be less educated in 2030 than it is today. A correlation has been shown between household income and a student’s score on the college entrance exam the SAT, or Scholastic Aptitude Test. “We know that the higher levels of education are tied to higher levels of income," Murdock said. Other factors affecting higher education are changes in types of households in Texas and the aging of the population, Murdock said. More university students will come from minority households where parents may have less money to help pay for college tuition, Murdock said. As the population ages, Murdock added, more public emphasis may be placed on issues affecting the elderly and less on those of college age residents.Democrats, unions sue to keep documents secret Bush finds selling ‘vague’ missile plan tough HALTON, England (AP) — President Bush said Thursday he is having a hard time selling a missile defense plan to skeptical allies in Europe because he has only “vague notions” about what it would entail. Bush also bristled at criticism of his climate change policy. “Our strategy must make sure working people in America are not thrown out of work,” Bush said at a joint news conference with British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Their meeting, the second of Bush’s presidency, underscored how much divides the Obituaries United States and its closest allies. Though the two leaders papered over their differences, the session at the prime minister’s 436-year-old retreat served as a preview of thorny issues awaiting Bush when he travels Friday to Genoa, Italy, for a three-day summit of the world’s wealthiest nations, plus Russia. His fellow leaders plan to challenge Bush’s positions on missile defense, global warming, genetically produced food and other topics. With Blair at his side, Bush said the landmark 1972 Anti-ballistic Missile Treaty forbids the United States from even testing a potential system — let alone settling on a shield and deploying it. “Therein lies part of the dilemma for the prime minister. He said, ‘What do you want me to support? What are you proposing?”’ Bush said, offering an unusually candid assessment of one ally’s doubts about his missile system plans. “Its hard for any country to commit to vague notions,” Bush said. Tens of thousands of protesters were expected in the Italian port city for the latest international gathering of demonstrators loosely grouped under the banner of the anti-globalization movement. In a direct challenge to protesters, who White House aides fear will overshadow the summit, Bush said, “For those who want to shut down trade, I say to them as clearly as I can: You’re hurting poor countries. For those who want to use this opportunity to say the world should become isolationist, they’re condemning those who are poor to poverty.” WASHINGTON (AP) — Documents that the Democratic Party and unions have sued to keep secret reveal a campaign strategy in which labor and party officials served side-by-side on committees that directed the Democrats’ election activities in each state. While labor’s support of Democrats is well known, the documents show labor leaders had veto power over Democratic Party plans in 1996 by virtue of their large donations and seats on the steering committees in each St&t6 “When the DNO and its National partners including ... the AFL-CIO and the NEA (National Education Association) agree on the contents of a plan, each national partner will give their funding commitment to the state,” an internal DNO memo titled “Rules of Engagement” said. Lawrence Noble, the nation’s former top election regulator, told The Associated Press on Thursday he was surprised by the degree of control unions held over Democratic decisions. Noble headed the investigation into GOP charges of illegal coordination between the unions and Democrats. The AFL-CIO donated $35 million in 1996. At the request of the Democratic Party and labor unions, a federal judge has forbidden the Federal Election Commission from releasing the documents it gathered during its four-year probe. AP obtained the documents from officials involved in various federal investigations of unions and from groups that got some documents when they were briefly released by the FEC this spring, then abruptly pulled from public display under threat of litigation. The documents detail extensive discussions between labor and party leaders on how to contact, register and influence voters to support Democrats and show where unions in some instances drew their money to accomplish the mission. In one case, a New York hospital workers union, Local 1199, spent $250,000 from its strike defense fund for a $2.7 million effort called the ’96 Project’ aimed at holding congressional Republicans accountable for their support of Newt Gingrich’s “Contract with America,” the records show.

Zoeller Funeral Home WAS HI NTG ON (AP) — One of the last people to see Chandra Levy before she disappeared said Thursday the young woman was upbeat and gave every indication she was returning to her family in California. “She was not disoriented. She was very much the same person I knew,” said the man, who works in the membership department of the health club where Levy worked out. The man discussed his final encounter with Levy on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on condition he not be identified by name. Levy, a 24-year-old former federal intern, visited the health club on the evening of April 30 to cancel her membership and has not been seen since, authorities say. She spent considerable time the following day using the computer in her apartment. The man at the health club said Levy came to see him and said, “I’m not going to use my membership. I’m going home.” He said he told Levy she could transfer her membership to a club in her home town of Modesto, Calif. He said he and Levy talked often. I saw her almost every day,” he said. “She worked out every evening. She was very friendly. ... We talked casually. ... She was very upbeat, veiy private.” Police officers and recruits spent another day searching for Levy on Wednesday and planned more searches Thursday. Investigators also continued to pore over a lie detector test taken by Rep. Gary Con-dit, D-Calif., who has told police he and Levy were lovers, according to a police source. Abbe Lowell, Condit’s lawyer, arranged the test.
