Grovers Mill reluctantly remembers its'war'

GROVERS MILL, N.J. (AP) - To be sure, jack-o-
lanterns still grin from front stoops here. Children
still dress up as hobgoblins and witches - but not Mar-
tians.
Halloween is not the favorite holiday of Grovers
Mill.
This is the place that Orsbn Welles doomed to an
embarrassing niche in modern history 43 years ago,
when he made it the setting for his broadcast adap-
tation of H. G. Wells' novel, "War of the Worlds."
THOUSANDS AROUND the country prayed, wept
or ran for the hills when the all too realistic story of
an invasion from Mars was broadcast over national
radio on Halloweed eve 1938.
Most who believed the broadcast have been permit-
ted to forget their hysteria, but not those who reside
in the several dozen houses sprinkled about a pond
and abandoned mill in Grovers Mill, not even a town
but an area within West Windsor Township.
"Nothing much goes on here. It's a quiet place, ex-
cept some people get real mad if you ask them about

that radio program. Some of them who left town still
feel real foolish," said Eddie Kemp, a retired dairy
worker.
CORA SAYLER, 89, still sits in the same chair by
the same window where she heard the broadcast. She
lives directly across the road from the Wilson farm,
where the Martian invaders were said to have lan-
ded.
She said she doesn't mind talking about her reac-
tion to the program, although she is a bit amazed by
some of the city folks who have questioned her over
the years.
"This one reporter for the television, I said to her
that I was cool as a cucucmber because I knew
nothing was happening. She asked me what cool as a
cucumber meant. SAid she never heard it. She asked
me to keep repeating it for the camera,'"Sayler said.
SHE SAID ONE reporter asked her to show off her
shotgun for the camera but that she refused, saying,
"I don't show my gun to nobody unless I have to use
it."

But Sayler said the thing that irritates her the most
is that people never want to talk about the time she
appeared on the television show "What's My Line?"
The panel failed to pick her as the woman who was
among the first of her sex to be permitted to hose
down cows in a large dairy operation.
Her son, Oliver, prefers to talk about "War of the
World," although he says he hopes "it's the last
time."
"It's old hat. Beating a dead horse," he said.
"People here are sick to death of it. It makes you feel
stupid and embarrassed ... those who thought it was
real."
HE SAID HE believes most of the panic occurred
in nearby cities such as Newark, Philadelphia, and
New York, because people there had no way to know
the broadcast was a spoof.
He said he doesn't know of anyone in Grovers Mill
who fled in fear on the night of the broadcast, mainly
"because those who did aren't saying."

United Press international reports
B-52 crash kills entire crew
LA JUNTA, Colo.- A B-52 jet bomber on a low-altitude training flight flew
into the top of a mesa and exploded in a ball of flame over southeastern
Colorado before dawn yesterday, killing all eight crewmen aboard.
Staff Sgt. Ada Martin of Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs said
the eight-engine plane carried no weapons, but "classified material was on
board." She did not elaborate.
Workers buy plant to save jobs
CLARK, N.J.-. Auto workers at a General Motors plant took a 30 percent
pay cut but saved some of their jobs by buying the plant and creating their
own company.
General Motors had announced plans to close its plant-formerly New
Departure-Hyatt Bearings Division-on July 1 because the plant was not
competitive.
To keep the plant open, workers Thursday ratified a contract that cut base
salaries by 30 percent and preserved just 750 of the 1,700 hourly jobs at the
plant. In return workers received production incentives, stock ownership,
and guarantees of a say in the company.
Some of those who lost their jobs called the $53 million sale a "sellout."
GM Chairman Roger B. Smith called it a "milestone in American labor
relations" as he turned over the deed of the plant to Hyatt Clark Industries
Inc., which will begin operations Monday.

Legislator
WASHINGTON (AP) - The chair-
man of the House Intelligence Commit-
tee yesterday urged the Reagan ad-
ministration to revise a draft presiden-
tial order so as to deny the CIA
authority to infiltrate and influence
U.S. groups.
In a letter to deputy CIA director
Bobby Inman, Rep. Edward Boland,
(D-Mass.) said "the agency is best ser-
ved if it cannot be asked to conduct in-
telligence activities which raise the
specter of domestic intelligence

asks for backdown on

gathering."
BOLAND'S' recommendations follow
suggestions by the Senate Intelligence
Committee that the draft order retain
former President Carter's nearly com-
plete ban on the CIA infiltrating and in-
fluencing domestic groups.
A Reagan administration draft order
would give the CIA authority to in-
filtrate domestic groups if approved by
the CIA director or his designee, and to
influence activities by U.S. groups if the
attorney general determines that con-

sititutional rights would not be violated.
Boland suggested that the order,
which President Reagan can issue on
his own authority, not change the Car-
ter order in granting the FBI nearly
total authority on infiltration of
domestic groups.
BOLAND ALSO recommended that
the order:
" Permit the CIA to collect foreign in-
telligence in the United States only if
such intelligence is deemed "essential"
and obtained through interviews.

CIA plan
" Limit CIA information gathering in
the United States toacquiring facts suf-
ficient to decide if the matter should be
referred to the appropriate law enfor-
cement agency.
" Allow the CIA to collect domestic
intelligence to protect intelligence
sources and methods only if the in-
vestigations are directed at present or
former employees, contractors or ap-
plicants for employment.

Nicaraguan hijackers arrested
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador- Anti-communist Nicaraguan hijackers
who freed 21 hostages in Costa Rica forced a pilot to fly them to El Salvador
yesterday along with six compatriots released from Costa Rican jails.
Officials said the hijackers and former prisoners were arrested when they
landed.
Defense Minister Jose Guillermo Garcia said the five hijackers, who freed
the hostages unharmed after Costa Rica met their demands, were arrested
at an improvised airstrip in San Miguel, 111 miles southeast of the capital,
along with the six Nicaraguan prisoners who had been freed earlier in the
day.
The hijackers had demanded their destination be kept secret. When the
commandeered domestic airliner returned to San Jose, the capital of Costa
Rica, yesterday afternoon, the pilot and co-pilot refused to disclose where
they had taken the Nicaraguans.

Tisch is back with a third tax cu

(Continued from Page 1)
nments as a result of a property tax cut.
State officials have 'rallied against the
cuts in previous years, maintaining
that the Tisch plans are irresponsible.
According to Tisch, however, a tax
cut-providing the state with fewer
dollars-will force irresponsible state
officials to clean up the waste in spen-
ding.
TISCH CITES results of a recent
University study on Michigan's
economy for supportof his argument,
even though the study itself said a tax
cut is not warranted.
The study found government expen-
ditures in Michigan to be 10 percent
above the national average, state em-
ployees' salaries to be significantly
greater than the national average and a
possibility that corruption and

mismanagement have drained the
state's resources.
The study said the state's high figures
were due in part to high average wage
rates. Tisch said, however, that high
industry wage rates should not affect
the pay state employees receive.
TISCH DISPELLED the study's con-
clusion that a tax cut was not warran-
ted, saying that its authors-professors
at state universities-"have an
obligation to protect themselves."
But Tisch was reluctant to carry his
analysis, further. "I don't want to
become nasty about it," he said. "In
fact, (University economics Prof. Har-
vey Brazer, who headed the study) has
been known to shoot straight once in a
while."
The issue for most of Tisch's op-
ponents has been the possible ill effects

on state institutions should a huge tax
cut pass. University administrators
were active in defeating the Tisch tax-
cut measure last year.
TISCH SAID per capita support to
higher education in Michigan still is 9
percent above the average of other Big
Ten states. University administrators,
however, noted that Michigan ranks
31st nationwide on that scale, citing
figures in The Chronicle of Higher
Education.
Public school systems in the state
would not be closing today if the 1978
Tisch proposal had passed, its author
said. The state would have had to
reform its expenditures to properly
fund schools, and residents currently
would be more willing to raise millages
if such measures still were needed, he
reasoned.

it plan
"Much of the current voter reaction
is do to the fact that people just cannot
carry any more of the burden,"'Tisch
said.
The gubernatorial candidate said
recent estimates of the state's budget
deficit of $270 million are not close to
actual figures. He said he believes the
real figure is around $670 million, and
he blames administrative
mismanagement for a large portion of
that deficit.
"I think we could save a couple of
million just by getting rid of Jerry'
Miller (the state's budget director),"
he said.
"The biggest mistake I ever made in
my life," Tisch said, was that "I bought
the argument that if you paid
legislators more, you'd get better
legislation."

"THE INTERESTS of the socialist
state, the peaceful and secure existence
of our nation, must and will be protec-
ted," Jaruzelski said in a speech to
Parliament that received thunderous
applause.
Jaruzelski did not explain what he
meant by "extraordinary means of ac-
tion," but a law banning strikes would
effectively strip Solidarity of the right
to strike, which was part of the August
1980 agreements that gave birth to the
first union free of Communist Party
control in the Soviet bloc.
Parliament is expected to discuss the
anti-strike resolution and Jaruzelski's
proposed law for two days.
SOLIDARITY leaders also were
trying to hald the protest wave that has
idled an estimated 350,000 workers in
scattered cities. It said it would discuss
"disciplinary measures in relation to
people guilty of weakening union unity
and discipline." It was the first threat
of internal discipline voiced by the
union since it was formed.
"We must program the use of -the
strike weapon in a thoughtful and plan-
ned way," said the union appeal from
its Baltic headquarters in Gdansk. "We
must settle the most important
problems of the nation such as
economic reform, control over the
economy and access to the media."

Arafat hints that PLO
may recognize Israel,
BEIRUT, Lebanon- PLO chief Yasser Arafat hinted yesterday he could
accept Israel's right to exist and said President Reagan "killed" Anwar
Sadat by failing to support him.
"I believe Reagan wasthe one who killed Sadat," the PLO leader said.
For the second time in recent weeks, the Palestine Liberation
Organization leader spoke favorably of a Saudi Arabian peace plan that
would recognize Israel's right to exist in return for the creation of a
Palestinian state.
In an interview published in the Lebanese newspaper An Nahar, Arafat
also said a future Palestinian state could be federated with Jordan and he
called upon Egypt to return to "the Arab fold."
State jobless rate down
DETROIT- Michigan's jobless rate in September decreased to 10.7 per-
cent, down from 11 percent in August, according to a statistical report
released yesterday by the Michigan Employment Security Commission.
The number of unemployed workers in Michigan was 469,000 last month, a
drop of 23,000 from August.
The Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti area had the lowest jobless rate in Michigan
during September at 7.6 percent-up .1 percent from last month.

'WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?'
Psalm 2:1 and Acts 4:25
The heathen embrace the entire human race in their fallen estate, which
estate is the result of Adam's disobedience to The Commandment of God.
Not only do the heathen rage, resist, and seek to get rid of God's Law, but
also they resist and seek to get rid of God's Anointed, The Lord Jesus Christ,
who came from heaven to deliver man from his "estate of sin and misery." He
came down and was born of The Virgin Mary, and so became God and man.
The God-man substituted Himself for fallen man and kept God's
Commandments perfectly in his stead. Then, He again substituted for fallen
man and took upon Himself the wrath and curse of God's judgment upon
rebellion and disobedience, and was put to death on The Cross. After three
days He arose from the grave, "The Mighty Conqueror" of death! He
appeared to His disciples and believing followers, and sent them to tell the
world if they would repent of their sins - disobedience to God's
Commandments - believe, accept Him as their substitute, and bring forth
fruit worthy of repentance, they would be reconciled to God, and receive the
gift of Eternal Life.
This is the Gospel, this is the Good News of the grace of God to all men.
Hear the testimony of the man God raised up to "prepare the way of The
Lord" found in John 3:36: "He that believeth on the Son of God hath
Everlasting Life; but he that believeth not The Son shall not see life; but the
