FBI agents investigate adoption fraud
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP)—FBI agents
from Washington, D.C., and at least three states
are meeting this week to review investigations into
an adoption network accused of defrauding cou-
ples seeking to adopt babies <n at least 18 states.
Rob Sutton, agent in charge of the Salt Lake
City FBI office, confirmed Tuesday that an agent
and prosecutor from Utah's U.S. attorney's office
were meeting in Albuquerque with FBI investiga-
tors from around the country.
Sutton said notes would be swapped on a
Mexican adoption pipeline operated by Debbie Tan-
ner of Wilcox, Ariz., and Bryan Martin Hall of
A spokesman for the FBI headquarters in Wash-
ington, D.C., refused to confirm or deny.
Director says ignorance caused delay
AUSTIN (AP}— Dr. Victor Galloway, the first
deaf person to run the Texas School for the Deaf,
said he was unaware of a state law requiring sexu-
al abuse cases to be reported to police.
City police officials said allegations that a house
parent sexually abused students during the 1981-82
school year were not reported to officers for more
than a month. Four male employees of the school
have since been charged with sexual assault.
Galloway told the Austin American-Statesman
Monday that school officials were unfamiliar with
the law requiring prompt reporting of child abuse
to the police.
Galloway said he hopes to meet with Travis
County District Attorney Ronnie Earl and request
a full investigation of the school.
Court grants 35-hour execution stay
STARKE, Fla. (AP)—A federal appeals court
granted a 35-hour stay of execution for convicted
killer Anthony Antone early Tuesday, hours before
he was to die in Florida's electric chair.
The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said
the stay was to give Antone time to appeal to the
U.S. Supreme Court.
Earlier, U.S. District Judge George C. Carr had
declined to block the 7 a.m. execution of Antone.
Carr said the claims, chiefly those of ineffec-
tive counsel, had been argued fully and denied
two years ago in other courts.
The condemned man had been described Mon-
day evening as "very calm and relaxed," accord-
ing to Vernon Bradford, a Corrections Department
Jury indicts Chagra in murder attempt
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Convicted drug king-
pin Jamiel "Jimmy" Chagra was formally charged
Tuesday in an attempt to assassinate a federal
Chagra, acquitted of charges he masterminded
a federal judge's murder, is accused of plotting
and paying for the 1978 ambush of Assistant U.S.
Attorney James Kerr.
U.S. Magistrate Robert B. O'Connor detailed
the indictment Tuesday to insure Chagra, who will
enter a plea at a later hearing, understood the
charges against him.
The two-count indictment naming Chagra and
James R. Kearns was returned Nov. 20—one day
before the five-year federal statute of limitatons
expired in the ambush.
Driver ruled not libel for horse's death
FORT WORTH (AP)—-A former Fort Worth
policeman lost a suit that sought to collect dam-
ages for a horse that died in an automobile accident.
A civil jury found Monday that J.D. Powers
was partially negligent in the accident that killed
the horse five years ago. Jurors refused to award
Powers patrolled the Fort Worth Stockyards on
horseback, but was fired from his job three years
ago after he was accused of beating a Dallas man.
The Fort Worth Civil Service Commission found
Powers had used excessive force in arresting the
The horse died Feb. 2, 1979, when the trailer
in which the animal was riding was thrown into
the side of a bridge. Powers braked abruptly to
avoid a rear-end collision with a van that had
swerved in his path.
Judge denies nurse's mistrial motion
GEORGETOWN (AP)—Defense lawyers for
nurse Genene Jones asked for a mistrial Tuesday
after State District Judge John Carter scolded a
cameramen for putting television cameras in jurors'
Carter denied the mistrial motion, but prom-
ised to punish cameramen who violated his order
against photographing jurors in the murder trial.
Jones is charged with using a muscle relaxant
to kill Chelsea McClellan, a 15-month-old Kerrville
girl who died on Sept. 17, 1982, after a visit to
the pediatrician's office where Jones worked.
Carter said Tuesday that jurors had complained
the cameramen "harrassed them all over the
square" on Monday. He said jurors reported televi-
sion cameras were aimed into their cars as they
left the courthouse area.

RA's may get vote
RHA to revise membership
By JILL WOJCIECHOWSKI
The presidents of each of the residence halls
will meet at 6 p.m. Monday in the Maple
Hall Suite of Maple Hall to discuss a revision
of the Residence Hall Association constituion.
The revision includes a proposal which would
allow resident assistants to vote in the RHA.
Sam Holmes, Bridgeport junior and RHA
president, said he is pushing the proposal
because "a lot of RAs have been active in
the RHA and are familiar with the organization.
Once they became RAs they are pushed out
of the organization. Every year we start over
again and keep stumbling because we have
no old members here to give us advice."
The RAs are familiar with the problems fac-
ing the RHA because of their experience with
the organization, he said.
Holmes said he did not think that allowing
the RAs to vote in the RHA would defeat the
organization's purpose as a residents organi-
zation because "the RAs are residents, too.
They live in the halls, and the decisions made
by the RHA affect RAs as much as other
OTHER UNIVERSITIES, such as Texas
Christian University and East Texas State,
include RAs in their associations, he said.
The presidents will also discuss the revi-
sion of the roles participating, non-active and
alumni members play within the RHA.
Five participating, or voting, members of
the RHA are selected by the officers of each
The only membership that would not be
revised in the new constituion is the execu-
tive membership, he said.
"The executive membership includes all
RHA officers. They can bring bills forward
and speak for or against a proposal, but do
not have a vote," Holmes said.
He said the no-vote clause for executive
members is not defined clearly in the present
constitution and has caused some problems in
The present constitution does not define the
committees within the RHA. The new consti
tution will define committees in the bylaws.
WHETHER THE RADIFICATION proc
ess for the revised constitution will be done
through the RHA or through the residence hall
system has not been discussed, he said.
The present constitution provides for an elec-
tion in all of the halls to approve any amend-
ments, he said. The present constitution was
revised in April, 1981.
Holmes will present the revisions to the hall
presidents and let them take it back to their
hall's executive board to look it over and make
recommondations, he said, as this allows the
RHA to have a greater amount of input, but
still be working with a small number of people.
