Bush took a turn at a pool table
in an Italian neighborhood in New
Jersey, bouncing the No. 4 ball in the
corner pocket while the morning
patrons cheered. After that came a
speech on crime.
Their daily campaign rounds over,
both men hustled back to their
political retreats to resume prepara

Both camps said they expected the
90-minute debate to be held at 9 p.m.

of UCLA, and the presidential rivals

Supreme Court to decide
'reverse paternity case'
From Associated Press reports
LOS ANGELES Two men
claiming fatherhood of a seven-year-old
girl are asking the U.S.
Supreme Court for a Solomon
like decision which could affect
other fathers in so-called reverse
"This case arises out of a societal
phenomenon of men assuming the
responsibility we've always told
them to assume as parents," says
attorney Larry Hoffman. The case
is scheduled to be heard Tuesday
by the highcourt.
In the classic paternity case, a
man who denies fathering a child
out of wedlock may be forced by
the courts to take financial respon
sibility for the child.
"I consider this a double reverse
paternity case," Hoffman says.
"We have not one, but two, men
coming forward wanting to sup
port and care for this child."
Hoffman represents a married
couple, Gerald and Carole Dear
ing, who are fighting a suit by
Michael Hirschensohn, Mrs.
Dealing's former lover.
Hirschensohn, who says he is
the biological father of Victoria
Dearing, wants visitation rights
and "the opportunity to be
involved in the child's life," says
his attorney, Joel Aaronson.

Sanford said. "I don't think polls

Most important, he said, is that
