“I was coming from my house to the store and some policemen stopped

DALLAS (AP) — Tests on prototypes of giant, high-power magnets, the most important and controversial component of the Superconducting Super Collider project, show they are workable, officials said.
The recent tests relieve doubts about the magnets, said Roy Schwitters, director of the Super Collider Laboratory in Desoto, a southern Dallas suburb.
"I think we really are out of the woods in terms of the magnets," Schwitters said in Atlanta, where a 3-day international Super Collider symposium began Wednesday.Prison programs have openings
AUSTIN (AP) — The state prison system is overcrowded, but the much-toutcd boot camp prisons have been running a high vacancy rate, officials said.
"We built the boot camp because the court ordered the agency to do so, but the courts have not proceeded since that time to fill up those beds," said Rep. Allen Hightower, D-Huntsville, said Wednesday. He is chairman of the House Corrections Committee.
"We got two facilities sitting out there that we’re not using?" asked Rep. Sam Johnson, R-Plano. "I can’t believe that."
The state prison system has for the past year operated two boot camps with a combined capacity of about 400 inmates.
fem Andy Collins, a director in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice institutional division, said judges have not been sentencing people to the camps.House favors oil cleanup plan
AUSTIN (AP) — Texas would be “second to none” in oil spill cleanup and protection under a bill tentatively approved by the Texas House, said the sponsor of the legislation.
The bill was prompted by two spills off the Texas coast last year, said Rep. Hugo Berlanga, D-Corpus Christi. It already has passed the Senate, and was given preliminary House approval Wednesday.
An oil spill response and cleanup fund of up to $50 million would be created under the measure.
The fund would be financed by a 2 cents per barrel fee on oil moving through Texas waters. The fee could be temporarily increased to 4 cents in case of a catastrophic spill.NationReaction to settlement varied
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Some environmentalists and elected officials welcomed an agreement by Exxon Corp. to pay a record criminal fine and pump more money into cleaning up the nation’s worst oil spil. Others said the $1 billion settlement lets the company off easy.
Gov. Walter J. Hickel, who with U.S. Attorney General Dick Thornburgh announced the deal Wednesday, planned to explain it to the Legislature tonight. Lawmakers must ratify the pact.
Exxon agreed to plead guilty to four misdemeanors and pay a $100 million fine. It would also pay an additional $900 million for cleaning Prince William Sound and the Gulf of Alaska.
The company already has spent $2.5 billion to mop up 11 million gallons of crude spilled by the Exxon Valdez in March 1989.
House challenges Bush on aid
WASHINGTON (AP) — The House is daring President Bush to block a $ I. I billion package of pay increases, educational aid and other benefits for soldiers and veterans that the White House says is not needed.
Lawmakers approved the measure 398-25 Wednesday, ignoring opponents who insisted that the legislation would bust last year’s budget agreement between Bush and Congress.
The legislation, riding the wave of post-Persian Gulf War euphoria, would apply not only to troops who served in that conflict but in earlier wars as well.
Across the Capitol, administration officials carved out a less expensive, compromise version of the initiative with bipartisan Senate leaders.
Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell, D-Maine, said the compromise bill would cost $500 million. He said he hoped Congress could send the completed legislation to Bush for his signature next week.
More black teens killed by guns
WASHINGTON (AP) — Gun-related deaths of black teen-agers jumped 38 percent in 1988 from the previous year, continuing a steady rise in such homicides, a government study shows.
Highlights of the report, previewed by Health and Human Services Secretary Louis Sullivan in a speech Wednesday night, also showed that black teen-agers were 11 times more likely to be killed by a gun than white teen-agers.
Among all races, one in five deaths of teens and young adults in 1988 was caused by a firearm, and more male teen-agers died from gunfire that year than from all natural causes, Sullivan said.
"I find these figures deeply disturbing," said Sullivan, a physician and the only black member of President Bush’s Cabinet. "As a black man and a father of three, this really shakes me to the core of my being. Do you realize that the leading killer of young black males is young black males?"
Reports of Iraqi conflict denied
NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — Iraq wi Thursday denied reports of continuing clashes between loyalist troops and rebels in Baghdad, but opposition spokesmen reported intense fighting in both northern and southern Iraq.
"Fabricated, baseless and completely unfounded" was how the official Iraqi News Agency termed reports of heavy fighting in die capital Wednesday.
Iran’s official Tehran radio, monitored in Nicosia, had reported clashes between government forces and demonstrators that left many dead in Baghdad.
It also quoted a report from an opposition radio station that the brother of Iraq’* information minister, Latif Nussayef J ass im, had been killed during an uprising in the Baghdad suburb of al-Sora. Iraqi opposition groups broadcast from lrwi, Syria and Saudi Arabia.
