EPA ranks waste sites
WASHINGTON (AP) - The gover-
nment' ranked 114 hazardous waste
sites as the worst in the country yester-
day in the first stage of a $1.6 billion

that threaten the public health and en;

group of 282 sites nominated last sum-

potential danger to public health-
primarily to drinking water supplies.
Also taken into consideration were
threats to the environment.
The sites were ranked in groups of 10

greater potential threats to larger
Typical of those threats was an 81-
year-old industrial complex in Tacoma,
Wash., where the EPA said part of the
city's underground drinking water sup-
ply had been contaminated by leaking
chemicals. The Tacoma dump complex
was listed among the worst 10 dumps.
New Jersey and Massachusetts

United Press international reports
Consumer Price Index hits
14.8 percent last month
WASHINGTON- Inflation surged in September, pushing the Consumer
Price Index to a 14.8 percent annual rate despite tight money policy and a
weak economy, the government reported yesterday.
Housing costs, college tuition, used cars and medical care led the index
The Labor Department said its 14.8 percent annual rate was compounded
from a monthly 1.2 percent increase for September, compared to August's
0.8 percent rise. July's 1.2 percent increase ended a four-month string of
considerably lower readings.
All figures were seasonally adjusted.
Union sues state to keep
Taylor schools open
DETROIT- The Michigan Federation of Teachers filed a lawsuit yester-
day aimed at forcing the state of Michigan to come up with the money to
keep the Taylor school district from closing as planfied next month.
MFT President Hugh Jarvis said the state has the constitutional obligation
to provide public education,reven in districts like Taylor where voters have
refused to approve their share of the tax burden.
Taylor voters this week rejected for the fourth time a millage proposal to
wipe out a $16 million deficit. School officials said they would close the
system Nov. 13, idling 16,000 students in the state's 10th largest district.
The school board is expected to schedule another election, possibly on Dec.
Regan adminmsration aband
andator auto safety restraints
WASHINGTON- The Reagan 'administration abandoned yesterday a
requirement that carmakers install air bags or automatic seat belts, star-
ting with theirlarger 1983 models.
Raymond Peck, the Transportation Department's top auto-safety official,
said the rule was rescinded because the administration believes motorists
would circumvent automatic restraints as much as they do the presently
required manual seat belts.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety called the decision a
"tragedy" on grounds that it "condemns to utterly needless death tens of
thousands of Americans who will be in car crashes just in the coming
decade, and whose lives could be saved by crash protection."
Greek movie, song censorship
ATHENS, Greece- Greece's new Socialist government endeddgover-
nment censorship of movies and songs yesterday and began drafting
legislation to recognize leftists groups that fought against the Nazis in World
War II. It also imposed price controls on raw materials.
The government of Premier Andreas Papandreou, whose Panhellenic
Socialist Movement swept into power in Sunday's general elections, began
im lementing the new measures on its second full working day.
The.decision to lift censorship is expected to lead to greater freedom, but it
will not mean unrestricted screening of pornographic films. Under Greek
law a public prosecutor may intervene when there are considerations of
public morality at stake.
LANSING (UPI)- Officials said Friday approval
of aid from the federal "Superfund" will enable them'
to defuse Michigan's most dangerous environmental
time bomb-the PBB-laden Gratiot County landfill.
"This is the No. 1 priority of the state and it needs to
be cleaned up," said William Rustem, Gov. William
Milliken's chief environmental aide.
THE GRATIOT County site, which contains about
80 tons of the toxic fire retardant, was one of 114 ap-

Environmental Protection Agency.
The plan to entomb the landfill in clay is expected
to cost about $5.3 million, with work beginning as

'WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?'
Psalm 2:1 and Acts 4:25
In the second Psalm of the Bible God asks the above question, and then
answers it. He tells who the heathen are, why they rage, and His reaction and
consequences of their rage.
Usually we think of the heathen as savages or uncivilized people, but here
God names them as kings, rulers, people who imagine a vain thing, and rage
and rebel against His Government, His King, Laws and Commandments.
Such folks certainly do not believe in the God of the Bible. Webster says a
heathen is "one who does not believe in the God of the Bible." Our govern-
ment and rulers have rejected God's Book and the Lord's prayer for our
Psalm 22:28 tells us "GOD IS THE GOVERNOR AMONG THE NATIONS."
Hear this governor's orders: "AND THOU SHALT TEACH THEM (God's law)
DILIGENTLY UNTO THY CHILDREN, AND SHALT TALK OF THEM WHEN
THOU SITTEST IN THINE HOUSE, AND WHEN THOU WALKEST BY THE
WAY, AND. WHEN THOU LIEST DOWN, AND WHEN THOU RISEST UP -
THAT IT MAY GO WELL WITH THEM, AND THY CHILDREN AFTER THEE."
Deut. 6:7 and 12:25.
Our forefathers put God's name, "the God of the Bible," on our coins: "In
God we trust." We are still willing to have God's name on our money, but it
appears we don't want God's name on our school children! You don't have to
go "to far away places" to find heathen! We are in great need of home
missionaries. Every true Christian Is a missionary.
"WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?" Why? what is the cause? It is to get rid
of the Commandment of God, His. King, His Moral Law, His Ten
Commandments: "To break the bands, cast away the cords" of restraint the
