WASHINGTON — Authorities still seem determined to make a federal case out of the White House party crashing incident involving the Barbie-Doll looking couple, the Salahis.

Latta, a 45-year-old water meter reader from Denver, sneaked into the East Entrance of the White House with the Marine Band about two hours before President Reagan was sworn in for his second term.
