It appeared unlikely the Security Council would sanction the use of force unless Saddam directly threatened his neighbors or fired on U.S. spy planes. "Obviously, diplomacy is not exhausted since we have a number of people, from the president on down, engaged in it at this moment," White House Press Secretary Mike -McCurry said. But he asserted anew that the United States would act alone if necessary. "Diplomacy may not work," McCurry said.

At the Pentagon, Cohen was asked if the United States has the ability to bomb Iraq into submitting to the U.N.'s wishes. "Our purpose is not to bomb him into -modification as such," he said. "We're not looking to bomb anyone into the Stone Age or into any kind of submission." to The president used an Oval Office: photo session with Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo to announce he was adding to U.S. military power in the Persian Gulf. Later, Clinton met with Jordan's King Hussein described by Clinton's spokesman as a voice of integrity, persuasion and courage in seeking peace.

The United States believes Iraq has hidden small stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, but officials are unclear exactly; where they are and believe U.S. warplanes have a limited capability to destroy them. Stressing the diplomatic effort, Clinton said, "We want very much work with our allies. We want to make sure that we've done all, we can to see that they agree with us about the gravity of the situation." Saddam is mistaken, Clinton said, if he thinks he can split the American-led coalition against Iraq or Law officers: Drivers should From WINTER Page A1 Week Monday through Friday is sponsored by the National Weather Service. It will be geared toward educating Hoosiers of the hazards of winter weather and preparing them for severe weather, Thursday's snowfall of about three inches could be the push residents need to begin preparing for what the phenomenon El Nino will bring to according to the National Weather Service.

El Nino is a warming of the Pacific Ocean that affects the atmosphere and the jet stream. It changes weather in several parts of the world. El Nino occurs every two to seven During the two previous major. El Nino winters (1972-1973 and 1982-1983), Indianapolis temperatures never dropped below zero and snowfall remained under eight. inches.

The National Weather Service: says El Nino will likely bring Indiana less snow and milder temperatures this winter. But even with these predictions, highway and street departments have to be prepared. Today's forecast includes an 80- percent chance of occasional snowfall with one to two inches of accumulation possible. Highs will be in the lower 30s with winds from the northwest at 15 to 20 mph.

Clinton said that with Saddam's expulsion of American inspectors, "what he has just done is to ensure that the sanctions will be there till the end of time, or as long as he lasts." The president added that "we could never, ever agree to any modifications of the larger economic sanctions on Iraq as long as he's out of compliance."

"If we have a snow tonight, after eight hours, every road in this county will be cleared up," said Superintendent John Webster. "When it snows at night, we like to be out and have roads cleared before people ato work." The Highway Department has 20 trucks assigned to 13 townships to remove snow first from hard surface, high volume roads, then secondary roads and then subdivisions.

The department uses a two-part: sand, one-part salt, mixture on icy roads. The mixture reduces the slickness, but does not dissolve the snow, Webster said. The county's Emergency Defense department will use radio and television broadcasts to tell the public of precautions to "take during a snowstorm. They will also coordinate all snow emergencies.

New abortion law goes into effect INDIANAPOLIS (AP) A woman seeking an abortion in Indiana must receive counseling about risks and alternatives, then wait 18 hours for receiving an abortion under a state law that took effect Friday.

A federal judge earlier changed the original version to permit counseling by phone, rather than requiring a personal visit to the clinic. U.S. District Judge David Hamilton's modification was part of a twoyear court battle over the law's constitutionality. He said phone consultation would save women from having to make two trips to a clinic. State lawmakers had battled over the issue of telephone consultation when the bill was before the Gener- al Assembly.

Efforts to permit phone counseling were defeated. The law originally required counseling to be done in person by either a physician, a physician's assistant, an advanced practice nurse or a midwife. The counselors were to provide a picture of a fetus and information on the potential survivability of an unborn fetus at whatever stage of development. Rep. Michael R.

Young, R-Indianapolis, a co-author of the law, said he was upset by Hamilton's change. Young said he planned to introduce legislation to require a. three-day waiting period after receiving telephone counseling. "If she gets the information ver- Private jail opens Sunday INDIANAPOLIS (AP) A privately operated jail in Marion County, the first such jail for adults in Indiana, will relieve overcrowding and save money, officials say. The 670-bed facility, managed by Nashville, Corrections Corporation of America, will begin accepting medium security prisoners Sunday.

The new jail building, a short dis-, tance from the existing county-run jail, was converted from a warehouse in a partnership between the county and CCA. The county owns both jails. Sheriff Jack Cottey said he was more than glad to relinquish some of the responsibility of housing "Somebody had to take this step," bally, she needs a chance to review printed and written information, including a drawing," Young said. Staffers at one local abortion clinic said they have had trouble notify- is ing women who already made appointments for this weekend. They said the women could arrive only to find out they have not complied with the counseling and 18- hour waiting requirements.

The Indiana State Department of Health distributed abortion consent forms to this week. To obtain the procedure, women must sign the FOR THE RECORD Hospitals A Marion ADMISSIONS Irene L. Christopher, 2530 S. Nebraska St. Kainan Devon Conn, 330 E.

"A lot of sheriffs don't want to look at something like this, because they don't want to give away the turf they already have." Mayor Stephen Goldsmith said the new jail cells were developed for less money than if the county had built it alone.

The new beds ease a chronic overcrowding problem and will ensure adequate space to house criminal suspects. "Now there is no excuse for releasing dangerous offenders to commit more crimes on the street," Goldsmith said. County Auditor Jon von Arx and Cottey said the new jail was completed for roughly the same cost as a 1983 expansion of the old jail that added half as many beds. 1 DISMISSALS Jennifer Andritsch, North Manchester Janice Enyeart, North Manchester Lloyd Tabb, Wabash OUT-OF-TOWN BIRTH Samantha Collins and Thomas Cason, S.
