Federated-Allied department store executives told creditors Thursday that the companies didn't deceive them about the financial crisis that precipitated the biggest bankruptcy filing in retailing history. But the executives said they doubted that all of the $7.7 billion in debt listed in their bankruptcy filings would be fully repaid. Much of the debt resulted from the junk bond-financed takeovers of Federated Department Stores Inc. and Allied Stores Corp. last decade by the Campeau Corp.

The 49ers (2-0), who have made the NCAA tournament four of the past five seasons, led by 12 points with 9:14 remaining.
