Uganda fears
invading forces
NAIROBI - President I d i
Amin's Ugandan government al-
leged yesterday that an invad-'
ing force was being mustered in
neighboring Tanzania only six1
miles from its heavily defended'
southern frontier.
A spokesman for President Ju-
lius Nyerere of Tanzania s a i d
of the allegation broadcast over
Uganda radio: "It is absolute
balderdash, just one other
dream."
But Uganda radio later broad-'
cast that Libya, a state friend-'
ly to Uganda, had "placed all
its armed forces at the disposal
of the Ugandan government."
President Amin is deeply con-
cerned about what , e sees as
a threat to his rule from across
the Tanzanian frontier.
Uganda radio cited a military
spokesperson as saying yester-
day the Ugandan Air Force and
Marines would "strike deep if
the reporter invading forces
from Tanzania at all attempt to
enter Ugandan territory even by
an inch."
"Despite the fact that Tan-
zanian forces are reportedly six
miles from the border the pub-
lic should continue its daily
duties normally," the spokes-
man said.
Uganda and Tanzania nearly
went to war in 1972 when the
Ugandan exiles loyal to ousted
Dr. Ubote entered Uganda.

The force disintegrated in the I
face of President Amin's army.
Ugandan bombers struck the
Tanzanian town of Mwanza on
the southern shore of Lake Vic-
toria.
Palestinians

that the guerrillas were streng-I
thening their units in "Fatah-'
land."
The spokesman gave no indi-
cation whether Israel would take
action over the reported return
to the area of guerrilla forces. i
Israel has often stated that it'
would not permit southern Le-
banon to again become the stag-
ing point for raids against it, asF
it was in the past.

with early morning commuter
traffic near here yesterday, rip-!
ping out 350 feet of the span and
sending four cars plummeting
into the James River.
Police said it was not knownI
how many persons were in the;
cars when they toppled into the
river from the 4,463-foot-long
Benjamin Harison Bridge when
it was severed by the SS Marine
Floridian.

Coast Guard and state police
divers descended into the river,
about 25 feet deep at the scene,
to look for the vehicles dumped
in the water and to determine
whether they were occupied.
State Highway Commissioner
John Harwood said damage to
the bridge could be into the mil-
lions, and that it may be closed
as long as a year while repairs
are made.

Under the current setup, spec-

Senate members do not have to

expenses.
Faust said the proposal would
not limit expenditures -- that
would be left to a later rule
change.

MESC clerks
took bribes
DETROIT - The director of
the Michign Employment 'Se-
curity Commission has confirm-
ed that eight clerks at a De-
troit MESC office have been su-
spended or fired for allegedly
accepting bribes from recipients
of unemployment benefits.
MESC chief S. Martin Taylor
said yesterday the eight cases
have been turned over to the
Wayne County prosecutor's of-
fice for criminal prosecution. He
refuses to identify the clerks
pending issuance of warrants by
the prosecutor's office.
He said the eight clerks pro-
cessed unemployment claims
checks at an east side office
which handles about 18,000
claims each week.

requiring disclosure of all trav-

The Westland Democrat pre-
sented those and other interim

Senate rules and give the upper
chamber what he called a more

He also proposed a long-term
