minor and said it would have no effect
on the stability of the reactor.
"I consider it to be a minor incident,
certainly not a serious incident,"
Collins said.
Plant officials said the leak occurred
during routine maintenance of three

pumps that add water to the primary
cooling system. They said that when
one pump was turned on, a leak
developed in a pressure switch feeding
a three-eighths-inch line.

Fraser tours Japan
TOKYO-United Auto Workers Union President Douglas Fraser arrived
here yesterday for a first-hand look at Japanese car exports to the United
States. Fraser is scheduled to meet government and business leaders during
his five-day tour of Japan. The trip, arranged through Japan's Federation of
Auto Labor Unions, comes amidst reports of surging Japanese car sales in
the U.S. and increasing numbers of layoffs among auto workers.
Fraser's agenda includes meetings with Prime Minister Masayoshi
Ohira, International Trade and Industry Minister Yoshitake Sasaki and
Foreign Minister Saburo Okita.
Gas eruptions hit Okla:
FREEDOM, Okla.-Mysterious gas eruptions that have blown wide
craters in the mud and forced the closing of a nearby tourist attraction edged
closer to Freedom yesterday, causing concern on the part of the
community's 290 residents. The state Corporation Commission, which
blames the trouble on an improperly plugged natural gas well, has called for
a hearing Wednesday to investigate the matter.
The Alabaster Caverns, a tourist attraction less than 10 miles away, has
been temporarily closed. Authorities fear the escaping gas might collect in
the caverns and explode.
Teachers return to work
CHICAGO-Teachers and students returned to classrooms- yesterday,
ending a two-week work stoppage that shut down the nation's third-largest
school system. A 15-hour bargaining session called by the mayor's office and
a 4,645 to 213 ratification vote Sunday by teachers ended the strike.
The plan calls for restoration of 504 of the more than 1,600 teacher and
teacher aide jobs the school board had planned to eliminate as part of an
overall $60 million budget reduction.
Worker comp plan unveiled
LANSING-State business and labor groups banded together yesterday
to endorse a plan hailed as the first major breakthrough in reforming the
state's workers' compensation system in many years. Sen. David Plawecki
(D-Dearborn Heights) said both business and labor made major
concessions, but conceded the plan is not the "end all and cure all" of worker
compensation. Plawecki said major compromises include an increase in
payments to disabled employees and coordination of workers' compensation
and Social Security benefits.
Although a special legislative task force has worked nearly a year on
reform, the plan proposed by Plawecki and Sen. John Mowat (R-Adrian)
was developed quietly by several business and labor, organizations.
Michigan Chamber of Commerce President James Barrett said a plan
suggested by Gov. William Milliken in December was a "more balanced
approach" and should be considered before action is taken on other plans.
Carter strategy unchanged
AUGUSTA, Maine-President Carter, the victor in Maine's Sunday
Democratic presidential contest, won't change his no-canpaign policy until
there is a break in the'Tehran hostage situation, White House press
secretary Jody Powell said yesterday. Powell said the president probably
will not campaign in person for the New Hampshire presidential primary
two weeks from today, adding that Carter's decision not to go on the road to
seek votes is based on the international situation and not on the outcome of
any political contest.
Strike continues in Phila.
PHILADELPHIA-More than 5,000 policemen and firefighters, waving
banners and chanting slogans, circled Philadelphia's City Hall yesterday for
the third time in their largest demonstration against 994 layoffs in their
ranks. Many of the banners and chants branded as a "liar and traitor" Fire
Commissioner Joseph Rizzo, brother of former Mayor Frank Rizzo and one
of the few old administration chiefs kept by Mayor William Green.
Green ordered the layoffs of 1,200 city workers, including 738 in the
police department and 256 in the fire department, to stave off bankruptcy
and a projected $167 million budget deficit next year.
Gacy trial proceeds
CHICAGO-The mass murder trial of John Gacy continued yesterday,
with a pair of handcuffs and a four-foot board allegedly used ,to shackle
victims introduced as evidence. Gacy, 37, a building contractor, is charged
with the killings of 33 young men and boys. The bodies of 29 youths were
found buried in a makeshift graveyard under his suburban home. The others
were found in nearby rivers.
Richmond voters go to polls
on advisory referendum
RICHMOND, Va.-Residents of this city of 250,000 vote today on an
advisory referendum, similar to California's Proposition 13, that would cut
property taxes by one-third, abolish utility taxes and restrict city spending.
The eight proposals to amend the city charter as proposed by a taxpayer's
group are strongly opposed by officials who say Richmond would lose $40
million per year should the referend pass.
Newspaper polls indicate the proposals will be approved in a voter
turnout greater than that for most presidential elections. If the proposals are
approved, none of the changes could become effective until next year.
