The FBI declined Friday to rule on the validity of a privately arranged polygraph test that indicates Rep. Gary A. Condit had no involvement in Chandra Levy's disappearance. The bureau's decision effectively means that authorities will not accept Condit's test results. In a brief statement issued by the bureau's Washington field office, which has assigned agents to the missing intern's case, officials cited "long-standing policy" in not using polygraph data "submitted by an outside entity."

As search teams again picked through dense park foliage Tuesday for clues in Chandra Levy's disappearance, District of Columbia police officials scuttled their plans to search the city's landfills. The ambitious search would have been too costly to mount--nearly $32 million, a police spokesman said. "It turned out to be just not practical for us," said D.C. Police Sgt. Joe Gentile.

Phyllis Atilano saw her town on national television a few days ago and was appalled. A crime show on the case of Chandra Levy, the missing Modesto intern, portrayed the city as a place of simple country bumpkins hanging out by the barber shop. "I resented it. We do have intelligent people. We are educated. I think Modesto is very diverse now," said Atilano, a special education aide in the local school system.

Police received an emergency call about a possible scream heard outside Chandra Levy's apartment building in the early morning hours of the day after the 24-year-old intern was last seen, District of Columbia police disclosed Sunday. But as tantalizing as that new information sounds, it only underscores the frustrating nature of the investigation so far, because police also say it appears Levy used her computer for more than three hours later that morning.

Almost from the start, the now 11-week-old saga of the missing intern and the congressman from California has caused fits for Gary A. Condit's fellow lawmakers. This week, what already was a difficult situation became more awkward after Condit's apparent admission--during a third interview with police--of a romantic relationship with Chandra Levy. For many elected officials, some of whom had been assured privately by the Ceres Democrat that no affair had occurred, the revelation was troubling.

After two days of interviews with a flight attendant who claimed an affair with Rep. Gary A. Condit, federal investigators Thursday expanded their probe into Chandra Levy's disappearance to examine whether the congressman attempted to obstruct justice, law enforcement authorities said.

In the now-daily tumult that is the story of missing federal intern Chandra Levy, Jim Murphy watches and waits. Murphy, executive producer of "The CBS Evening News," has made waves himself this week, as a sober arbiter of news begging off a story that most media outlets--from major daily newspapers to nightly network news shows--can't resist.

It was almost exactly two years ago that Rep. Gary A. Condit, the son of a Baptist minister, voted to permit the display of the Ten Commandments in schools. "Congress probably should spend more time obeying the Ten Commandments and less time trying to exploit them for crass political purposes," Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, said at the time. Prophetic observation, you might say.

Hours after a team of evidence technicians scoured the walls and floors of Rep. Gary A. Condit's condominium Wednesday in a search for traces of Chandra Levy's final movements, police officials were still trying to win a commitment from the congressman to take a polygraph test. Investigators with blood- and fluid-sensing equipment filed into Condit's residence at night. They emerged with bags containing a few undisclosed items from the apartment.
