usk sends official
to o!D sod
From Associated Press report
Bush dispatched three high-ranking
officials to Alaska on Tuesday to
"take a hard look" at the nation's
worst oil spill and judge whether the
government should take over the
massive cleanup job from Exxon.
With an oil slick spread across 100
square miles of Prince William
Sound, Bush said the first priority is
to protect the environment and "clean
up this disaster." Then the govern
ment will decide on any penalties for
"This is a matter of tremendous
concern to Alaskans and, indeed, to
all of us,w Bush said. "The conser
vation side is important. The energy
side is important."
Bush was briefed on the disaster
by Transportation Secretary Samuel
Skinner, Environmental Protection
Agency chief . William Reilly and
Coast Guard Commandant Paul
Yost. Immediately after the meeting
in the Oval Office, they left for
The oil spilled into the water after
the 987-foot tanker Exxon Valdez,
trying to avoid ice, rammed a reef
and ran aground Friday. Fewer than
135,000 gallons of oil have been
recovered from the 10.1 million
The ship's captain, Joseph Hazel
wood, was not on bridge when the
accident occurred. Instead, the third
mate, who did not have proper
certification, was in charge, according
to Exxon Shipping Co., which owns
The harbor reopened Tuesday,
tankers anchored offshore churned in
to pick up oil, and winds which had
been moving the oil died down. The
port had been closed since the
accident, reducing the flow of oil
through the Alaska pipeline. Coast
Guard Lt. Ed Wieliczkiewicz said the
oil slick spreading across the sound
was clear of shipping lanes.
Commenting on reports that
Hazelwood had a drinking problem,
National Transportation Safety
Board spokesman Bill Woody said,
"We look at all areas in an investi
gation and that's an area of concern."
Bush and Skinner hinted Exxon
could face big civil penalties.
"There are a variety of legal options
that are available. But right now the
primary consideration is to make sure
everything possible is being done,"
"And the president has directed us
to assess that, that oil is being
contained and that the oil that
remains on the tanker is being
offloaded as quick as possible. That
is our primary objective as mandated
by the president . . . Well then later
on worry about who is going to pay
for the damage.
"But there are significant penalties
and provisions for reimbursement,"
Bush said, "the thing is to get it
cleaned up, to protect the very
precious environment out there, to
make sure everything is being done
to clean up this disaster. And then
we'll have all these penalties and all
that later on."
At this point, Exxon is in charge
of the cleanup in one of the world's
most environmentally sensitive and
biologically rich marine waters.

"If she feels something is right and
she wants it, shell get it," said Pam
Palladino, a junior biology major
from Lancaster, S.C.
Watkins said, "Any time she does
something she does it right, even if
it means staying up 'til three or four
in the morning."
A sincere desire to help others has
also emerged through her work,
Jackson said in an interview Monday.
"The things I am able to do well are
the things that help people. They are
the things i get excited about. It's a
natural inclination or role."
. Watkins said, "She is definitely a
caring person about people, about
treating people fairly and about doing
the right thing."
Jackson's volunteer work, includ
ing two summers with retarded
children in Georgia, shows her desire
to help others, he said. "She really
enjoys that kind of work. She deve
loped a lot of good friendships
Jackson's most gratifying RHA
experiences have come from helping
others, she said. "The best part was
getting to be friends with those people
and to work with them and to help
work things out.
"It's neat to have people come and
ask for my help, to actually have a
conflict and think that I could solve

"I never have known Liz to be very
shy," said Palladino, who has worked
with Jackson in RHA and worked
on Jackson's presidential campaign.
"If there is someone she wants to meet
she makes a point of meeting them."
Besides spending time with Wat
kins, Jackson said she liked to spend
time with people. "I'd rather sit down
and talk to somebody rather than
going out and partying."
Being personable is an important
quality for RHA members, Jackson
said. "1 think that's a big part of

confidence and emotional strength
from working in RHA government.
Because she was never involved in
high school student government, she
hesitated at first when encouraged to
run for Morrison Residence Hall
floor president as a freshman.
"But once you sit one-on-one with
somebody and they say, 'Okay, I
really think you can do this, and this
is what you need to do,' you start
thinking, 'Hey, I can see myself doing
that well, " Jackson said.
"I'm able to feel like if I can do
something, I can do it well. It's good
to know that whether I do well in

Palladino said she has also noticed
a change in Jackson. "She has
definitely grown through RHA a
great deal, especially over the last
Jackson's father agreed. "She
seems to have grown a lot in con
fidence over the years. It's from
accepting responsibility and seeing
what you can do with it."
Jackson said she also enjoys the
day-to-day work of RHA. Dealing
with the daily operation of the office,
working with administrators and
finding out she "isn't allergic to
numbers" sometimes makes her
wonder if she would like a career in
business, although she will probably
stay with physical therapy.
Jackson said she might like to use
her managerial and organizational
skills to work for an group such as
the Red Cross or the United Way.

Iraq's compensation plan
for Stark attack called fair
From Associated Press reports
WASHINGTON U.S. offi
cials said Tuesday that Iraq's
agreement to pay $27.35 million
to the families of the 37 sailors
killed in the attack on the USS
Stark is a satisfactory and fair
settlement, but it is unclear when
Iraq will make the payments.
The agreement, formally
announced by the State Depart
ment, represents about 92 percent
of the $29.6 million the United
States had requested for the
families of those who died in Iraq's
unprovoked missile attack on the
Stark in 1 987.
Bush administration officials
privately described the agreement
as "satisfactory" and a "fair
settlement." The sources, speaking
on condition they not be identi
fied, also said it remained unclear
when Iraq would hand over the
money. They said Iraqi officials
had offered the settlement in a
The officials said Americans
who were in Baghdad to settle the
matter were called in to see Iraqi
Foreign Minister Tariq Aziz on
Monday "and told that this was
what (Iraqi) President (Saddam)
Hussein had decided."
Meese testifies in North trial
Attorney General Edwin Meese
testified Tuesday that Oliver
North assured him a plan for using
Iran arms sales profits to aid the
Contras was Israel's and U.S.
involvement was "none."
Meese, testifying as a prosecu
tion witness at North's trial in
federal court, said North appeared
surprised when Meese confronted
him with a memo outlining the
plan. The memo was found by
Meese's aides when they searched
North's White House office on
Nov. 22, 1986, the day after North,
his secretary Fawn Hall and an
aide had shredded massive
amounts of documents.
"I believe he asked where we had
gotten the memo," Meese said.
News in Brief
A former North deputy told the
jury earlier that the National
Security Council aide still carried
sensitive documents to a shredder
even as Meese's investigators were
taking a lunch break from search
ing his office. ;
Marine Lt. Col. Robert Earl
said North slipped through an
alleyway to a White House
shredder that day. Earl said he .
believed the papers North took
virtually from under the investi-

Ueberroth may bid for Eastern
NEW YORK - Texas Air
Corp. directors met Tuesday and
were expected to consider offers
to buy strike-crippled Eastern
Airlines, sources said.
Peter Ueberroth, whose term as
baseball commissioner ends Sat-;
urday, may offer $300 million tor
$500 million during the meeting
that ends Wednesday, said base
ball and airline industry sources.
Takeover specialist Carl Icahnl
hoped union concessions would
persuade Eastern creditors to let
him take control.
Sources said substantive discus
sions in the regularly scheduled
meetings probably wouldn't get (
under way until Wednesday.
Texas Air spokesman Art Kent in
Houston said the company
wouldn't comment on whether a
meeting was being held.
"There are a lot of those rumors
going around," Kent said. ,
Indications of Ueberroth's inter

chairman of Trans World Airlines
Inc., resumed talks with Eastern's
unions about a possible takeover.

The office's influence on campus
has not been reduced because of last
year's' proposal, but its power
depends on the role the office's staff
chooses to play, Croslan said. "If you
had a passive administration, that
would be the attitude that would
prevail on campus."
Donald Boulton, vice chancellor
and dean of student affairs, said the
administration only talked about
consolidating the office with other
groups and was misinterpretated by
the students. "We never had any
