Three killed
in Michigan
postal shooting

Associated Press

ROYAL OAK, Mich. —- A fired postal worker described by a colleague
as “a waiting time bomb" walked through his old post office yesterday and
shot 10 co-workers, killing three, before critically wounding himself, an-
thorities said.

Two other employees were injured by jumping out of windows after the
spree began at about 8:50 am. in this town about 13 miles north of Detroit,
Fire Chief Bill Crouch said.

“i heard the shots; there were about eight or it) of them," said Salem
Benji, a bookkeeper who was parking his car in the post office lot. “People
came running out of the building screaming, ‘Call the police! Somebody‘s
shooting!‘ "

the gunman was identified by co-workers as Thomas Mcllvane, 31, of
Oak Park, They said he was fired last year and the firing was upheld by an
arbitrator on Wednesday. Postal service officials, while not releasing the
name, confirmed that the gunman had been fired

The suspect and three of the seven wounded workers were in critical
condition, hospital officials said

The man opened fire in at least three different areas, beginning with a
loading dock where at least three people were shot, Crouch said. He then
moved to an upstairs office, shooting another three people, before walking
to the opposite end of the building and firing several more rounds, includ-
ing one on himself.

“1 don’t think anyone can characterize something like this except chaos,"
Crouch said. “When something like this happens you don‘t believe it. i
don't know what the world's coming to."

Police Officer Joseph Hill said the man shot himself with a ZZ-caiiber
rifle. Authorities declined to give further detail on the weapon or weapons,
but there were broadcast reports that a semiautomatic was used

The post office was open at the time of the shootings but no customers

Assomated Press


MOSCOW ~ Seven of the I2
Soviet republics reached tentative
agreement yesterday on a new polit
ical union, but the powerful Ukraine
refused to back President Mikhail
Gorbachev in his effort to hold the
nation together.

Gorbachev has threatened to re—
sign unless the republics agreed to
halt the disintegration of the Soviet
Union and work together to create a
market economy. An earlier LTnion
Treaty was scheduled to be signed
Aug. 20. the day after the coup by
hard-line officials was announced,

Many key details of the accord
are unresolved, but it appears the
Kremlin will be restricted to foreign
atlairs, strategic nuclear arms and
some monetary policies. it also
would rename the Union of Soviet
Socialist Republics the “Union of
Sovereign States" and replace the
old constitution.

'lhe republics wrll be allowed to
introduce their own currencies;
many already are taking steps to
create their own armies.

'lhe accord needs parliamentary
approval of each republic

“lt's dilltcult to say how many
starts will enter the new union. but
after today‘s discussion, i am firmly
convinced the unioti will exrst."
Russian federation President Boris
Yeltsin said. Russra by far is the
richest and most populous Soviet re-

‘Scenario’ haunts Spurrier
as Cats travel to Gatorland

Assrstant Sports Edao:

Florida could win its first legiti-

”That learn last year will be first

We have tied for first right
now. And if we're fortunate enough
to be successful. we will finish first
again. That‘s the way 1 look at it.

With l'lx' do. (15) playing in

would seem the title ts all but a lock
for Florida. Spurrier, however. does
not subscribe to that theory.

“I guess the Indiana game is the
one that scares me because I know
that Indiana is an outstanding
team.“ Spurrier said of UK‘s 13-10
loss to Indiana. .. Of course. I can
see a scenario. I see them coming

“When a team is not ready. they
can get beat. We know we can be
beat. We know we can very poorly.
I thought we were ready to play up
at Syracuse.“

Florida lost to Syracuse 38-21 af-
ter winning 35—0 over Alabama.
Spurrier said he is worried that a
team like UK, playing the fifth-
rankcd team in the nation, could
ride emotion to victory.

UK played a solid game against
Big Ten school and interstate rival
Indiana. UK had a chance to win
the nationally-televised game game
late but faltercd.

Curry. however, isn't buying
Spumer‘s concem with UK's near
win at Indiana.

“Steve is reaching for something
nice to say, and I appreciate that,"
Curry said. “Well, we have a lot of
different players playing because
we lost a lot of players since IU. A
lot. And a lot of the ones that are
out there now are operating with
one shoulder and we were at full
bore against 1U. We are an entirely
different team."

Irnuries and freak plays have
plagued the Wildcats all season.
L'K's 3-6 record may not be indica-
tive of how good the team might be.
but the question this week is wheth~
er the Wildcats are good enough to
beat the nationally-ranked Gators.

Florida‘s offense is led by Heis-
man Trophy candidate Shane Mat-
thews. the SEC's top passer.

Florida averages 8.77 yards when
Matthews throws the football. He
boasts a 61.3 completion percent-

“I think he‘s the best quarterback


in the nation ~— without a doubt,"
Spurricr said of Matthews. "When

great things Shane does is he iiist

and quickly escalated the war. Over
the next decade the Pentagon spent
tens of billions of dollars within the
miliuiry-industrial complex on a
war that cost more than soooo
American lives.

In the short time he was in office.
Kennedy also proposed the most
sweeping civil-rights legislation tn
history to ensure all Americans
equal opportunity in education. em»
pioyment. public accommtxlattorts
voting and access to federal pro~
grams. This eventually led to the
passage of the Civil Rights Act ol
l‘lol. which then-Texas oil rnatt
George Bush opposed, gtvtttg new
hope to millions of minority Amert’
cans who long had sought to be free
oi social and economic oppression.

Kennedy also was committed to
pttrsutng a Nuclear Test Ban Treaty
with the Soviet l'mon. the first dts~
armament agreement of the nuclear
age. which eventually was signed in
October 1963. The treaty would ne—
gotiate a ban on all nuclear tests in
the atmosphere. in ottter space anti
under water.

The day before his assassination.
President Kennedy asked his eco-
nontic advisers to prepare a "War
on Poverty" program for WM. Kcn~
nedy'. who himself had lived a life
of wealth and accommodation. had
encountered many poor anti under-
privtleged Attiertcans while catn-
paigning for the presidency in 19m
and had vowed to “help them help
themselves." He had also vowed tn
his 1961 inaugural Address that “if

were borti again. He‘s living a sec»
ond, channed life tti which every
day is a gilt. He shows his thanks
by playing the alto saxophone. In
reality. the music is a cover for the
spiritual rejuvenation of a black art»
tst. The stage is his church; his audt
ence bears witness to the miracle

Today. Morgan is considered the
greatest living aitosax player in the
world. Jazz wunderktnd Wynton
Marsalis has said of Morgan
