World By Wire Pro-life advocates gather to mourn Roe v. Wade Associated Press WASHINGTON Abortion foes massed 70,000 strong Wednesday on the national Mall, marking the 19th anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision legalizing abortion with a new optimism that the ruling's days may be numbered."I just feel it," said Vi Randall of Godfrey, 111., pointing to changes that have swung the high court rightward since its landmark decision in 1973. A day earlier, the court agreed to review a restrictive Pennsylvania abortion law, and activists on both sides of the issue have said the justices may well use that case to undermine the Roe vs. Wade decision.Anti-abortion activists also rallied in dozens of other cities Wednesday, including a crowd of Princeton students romp nude in the snow, again Associated Press PRINCETON, N.J. About 65 Princeton University students threw aside their books and their clothes for an annual romp in the snow early Tuesday. In a two-decade tradition, students bared all but hats and footwear at the stroke of midnight to run amid the flakes of what they declared was the year's first significant snowfall. The light dusting was enough for sophomore-class organizers, who had fretted that a mild winter would deprive them of the romp. Participants promised there would be a repeat performance because of the low turnout in 20- A A A A A A A A A AAAAAJ WEDDING CELEBRATION WW JAN 24 8c 25 SALT PALACE EXHIBITS Over 100 displays ELEGANT FASHION SHOWS Frl. 5 p.m. & 8 p.m. Sat.

Most of the marches were accompanied by smaller groups of counter-demonstrators. President Bush, addressing the Washington crowd over loudspeakers, got cheers when he said: "I want to reaffirm my dedication and commitment to the simple recognition that all life is a precious gift, that each human being has intrinsic dignity and worth." "There's a change in attitudes, especially the attitudes of young people," said Mary Ellen Fattori of Havertown, Pa., an English professor at Villanova University. "They . have a conscience like they haven't had for 15 years. The apathy has gone away." Michael Quinn, 69, of Bay Shore, N.Y. said, "People are impressed that we fight and die to degree cold. Usually, several hundred of Princeton's 4,600 undergraduates cavort in the raw. In-the-buff students ran laps around Holder Courtyard on campus and did calisthenics. Some ran downtown. The event drew attention last fall, when worried parents of a prospective Princeton student wrote columnist Ann Landers. She advised that the tradition wasn't harmful.

The sense of a turning point was also evident among abortion-rights proponents staging counter-demonstrations, including several hundred who lined a block of Constitution Avenue to exchange chants and finger-pointing with the marchers. Aundrea Cika of Alexandria, Va., 28 years old and eight months pregnant, said it was the firstabortion-rights demonstration she had ever attended. Abused boy comes forward, but state still puzzled by his account Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY Social workers are unsure whether a boy who went to the state Capitol to ask lawmakers and the governor to rescue him from an abusive home is recounting past or current abuse. Department of Human Services spokeswoman Terry Twitchell said Thursday the 12-year-old boy had already been removed from an abusive home sometime in the past and was living with relatives. "We are not sure whether the allegations the child made are current allegations or if thev are old." she said. "If they are old, they've already been investigated and action has already been taken." The boy approached a House sergeant at arms Wednesday and repeatedly asked, "Where are the Harriott FOOD & SERVOS MANAGNT "With the court stacked as it is now," said Ms. Cika, "there's a need for those of us in the middle to come out." She said she probably would never have an abortion "but I don't think I should control other people's choices." The anti-abortion demonstrators applauded Bush's pledge to "continue to oppose and fight back attempts by Congress to expand federal funding for abortions" and his statement that the number of pregnancies ended by abortion is "simply unconscionable." Seventeen-year-old Jackie Thomas of Southfork, Pa., ap legislators?" He then asked for the "state man" and was directed to the office of Gov. Norm Bangerter, though he did not meet with the governor. Bangerter's press secretary, Francine Giani, said the child claimed he was abused at home so security officers took him to the Children's Justice Center. "The boy's story seemed to change several times while he was in the governor's office, Giani said. Donna Bennett, constituency services employee at the Capitol, said the boy did not appear upset and was even friendly. "When you're dealing with children who have been molested, you have to be very careful," Twitchell said. "When you're talking child abuse, it could be an incident that happened 10 years ago or something that's current. anniversary plauded the president's words, but muttered, "He should be here." Wednesday's rally had a partisan ring to it, particularly speeches by Rep. Robert Doman, R-Calif., who called Bush the "first line of defense" against abortion, and Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., who said, "In 1992 we have to go political." "With every Democratic contender for the presidency vociferously pro-abortion," said Smith, "I think it is ... morally imperative upon us that we -work night and day to re-elect the president and to make gains in both the House and the Senate." "If it is current, of course we'll be investigating and action will be taken," she said. "We'll also share it with his therapist." In cases where children allege parental abuse, the child's parents are contacted, an investigation is opened and the child is interviewed, said GrantTolley, supervi-' sor of the state Office of Social Serv-ices's Family Preservation and Unification Department. "The boy is at the Center for Children's Justice and we're working with them to get an interview done and get him home as soon as we can," Tolley said Wednesday. We can help you find...
