New drug helps
From AP and UPI
CHICAGO - A new drug given to in-
fluenza patients sharply reduced the
severity and length of their disease and
might help save the lives of elderly flu
victims, a researcher said yesterday.
The drug, called ribavirin, was given
to 14 college students with influenza
who were suffering from fevers and
such other symptoms as headaches,.
eye pain and backaches.
THEIR FEVERS disappeared about
a day sooner than the fevers of students
who were not given ribavirin, and their
symptoms were less severe, said Dr.
Vernon Knight of the Baylor College of
Medicine in Houston. No harmful side
effects were found, researchers said.
The students inhaled a fine mist con-
taining the drug through face masks for
12 hours a day. Treatment continued
for two or three days.
Knight said the treatment shortens
the life of the illness from its normal
cycle, which can last up to a week.
IN ONE CASE, the drug was given to
a 61-year-old man who had the flu,
developed pneumonia and suffered a
heart ttack. He was brought to the
hospital in a coma.
A day and a half after treatment
began, the flu virus started to disap-
pear. Three days later, he was out of,
the coma and he eventually recovered.
"It was, a spectacular case," Knight
Influenza, most common during the
first three months of the year, can be
fatal in elderly people and in people
already weakened by another disease.
WHEN INFLUENZA reaches
epidemic proportions, as it did in 1980
and may do again this winter, it can kill
thousands and infect as much as 20
percent to 40 percent of the population.
Also yesterday, doctors in New York
said "beta blockers" - a relatively
new class of drugs can prevent up to 4$
percent of second heart attack deaths.
The doctors' reports, based on studies
in England and Norway, corroborated
last week's disclosure by the National
Heart, Lung and Blood Institute that
the beta blocker Inderal can reduce
deaths from second heart attacks by up
to 26 percent.
Inderal is one of four beta blockers
approved by the Food and Drug Ad-
ministrationn for other use against high
blood pressure and other conditions, in-
cluding glaucoma and migraine.
The new reports came at an Inter-
national Symposium on Beta Blockers -
co-sponsored by the American Heart
Association's Council on Clinical Car-
diology and Mount Sinai School of
"The most dramatic of the recently
concluded and ongoing European beta
blocker heart attack trials, in Norway,
suggests that the incidence of post
'heart attack death could be reduced by
as much as 45 percent through the use
of this class of drugs," said a sym-
Dr. Peter Sleight of Oxford Univer-
sity, England, said his study showed
patients getting beta-blockers within
123 hours of their first heart attack ex-
perienced a one-third reduction in heart
tissue damage, significantly reducing

set up new council
LONDON- Prime Ministers Garret FitzGerald of the Irish Republic and
Margaret Thatcher of Britain agreed yesterday to set up an intergover-
nmental council that will work to end the bloody sectarian strife that has
plagued Northern Ireland for 12 years.
FitzGerald, speaking at a news conference after the five-hour summit at
10 Downing St., said the agreement was "an important step forward." It was his
first meeting with Thatcher since his Fine Gael-Labor coalition came to
power in last June's general election.
Thatcher told a separate news conference the council gives "new im-
petus" to a Londdh-Dublin initiative for ways to restore peace in the troubled-
FitzGerald and Thatcher agreed to step up economic cooperation between
the two Irelands. This, they stressed in a joint communique, "would, in it-
self, generate further cooperation."
maneuvers in Mideast
WASHINGTON- The "Bright Star" operation the United States will stage
in the Middle East this moith and next falls far short of what would be'-
needed to meet a real threat to the r'egion, according to Pentagon planners.
The Defense Department formally announced the exercise yesterday,
saying more than 6,000 U.S. soldiers, sailors, pilots and Mdrines will par-
ticipate in maneuvers, drills and demonstrations in four countries.
The main effort will center in Egypt, where some 4,000 Army and Air For-
ce troops, as well as jet fighters and ground attack planes, will join Egyptian
forces in desert maneuvers. Activities in the Sudan, Somalia and Oman will
be mostly of token size.
Although it represents the biggest such U.S. military exercise in the Mid-
dle East so far, "Bright Star" will deploy only a fraction of the troops and
equipment that officials say would be needed in a crisis.

WASHINGTON (AP)- President Reagan yester-
day endorsed a 10-year extension of the Voting Rights
Act,- but said he wants several changes in key
provisions of the strong House-passed version of the
landmark civil rights law.
In his first official statement on the law, Reagan
said he would support either a direct extension of the
current law or a modified version of the bill passed by
the House last month, a bill he had earlier called
REAGAN DIDN'T spell out all of his problems with
the House bill, but did say he believes the law should
require minority groups to prove any discrimination
was intentional when they challenge election laws.
The'House bill would require only a showing that
discrimination resulted ,not that it was intentional.
As a result of a SupremeCourt decision April 22,
1980,1 a case involving Mobile, Ala., lawyers now in-
terpret section 2 of the law, under which suits can be
filed to challenge electoral procedures, to require a
showing of intent. The House version is designed to
make clear that only the effect of discrimination is
necessary before filing suit.
The Senate has not yet considered the bill. The
Senate Judiciary Committee, headed by Sen. Strom
Thurmond (R-S.C.) plans hearings in January.
"TO PROTECT all our citizens, I believe the Voting
Rights Act should and must be extended," Reagan
said in a prepared statement.
"Every American must know he or she can count
on an equal chance and an equal vote. The right to
vote is the crown jewel of American liberties and we
will not see its luster diminished."
The Voting Rights Act is intended to prevent states
with a past history of discrimination at the polls from
continuing that discrimination or from diluting
minority voting strength through redistricting or
other maneuvers. It was first passed in 1965.
It requires nine states, mostly in the South, and
parts of 13 others to submit any proposed changes in
their voting laws to the Justice Department for-ap-
proval before implementation. In addition, it
requires bilingual ballots for areas with large
Both provisions will expire next August unless ex-
tended. Reagan said he supports extension of both

shuttle back on line for another try at Launch II next Wednesday.
If the units heed only a flush and fill, launch director George Page saind the
countdown could start as early as tomorrow night, aiming for a 7:30 am.
EST liftoff Wednesday. If the units must be replaced, the launch would be set
for the following week, he said.

WARSAW, Poland- Stepping back from a threatened confrontation, the.
leadership of the Solidarity labor union pledged yesterday to meet the Com-
munist government half-way in new negotiations to solve Poland's economic
The union said Thursday that the government had indicated its willingness
to make some concessions toward reaching a consensus on rebuilding the
shattered economy, and the archbishop, now at Vatican City, said he was op-
timistic agreements could be reached.
The independent union remained unable to get about 150,000 rank and file
to return to their jobs and coal mines in southern Poland, and the Solidarity
chapter in Sosnowiec upped its demands yesterday, calling for the ouster of
the provincial government. Local Communist groups renewed calls for
crackdowns against "counter-revolutionaries" aid new muscle for the
government in dealing with the strikes, some going into their third week.
Solidarity's Country Commission, a 107-member leadership executive,-
passed a resolution Wednesday calling for the union to control employment
and food distribution and threatening a nationwide general strike if a set-
tlement isn't reached by March.

The two friends then decided how
they might prevent this from hap-

Chen might appeal for help from Car-
negie-Mellon University where he was
"But Chen was really not that op-
timistic that his school could help him if
the government put him in jail," Teng
HE SAID Chen cited similar inciden-
ts, such as the one at the University of
Hawaii, where the school could not

Chen considered declaring amnesty
at the American Institute in Taiwan or
at the embassies of South Korea, Saudi
Arabia, or South Africa, Teng said, but
said Chen believed these options
weren't feasible either.
According to Teng, Chen said, "I
came here to see you. This may be the
last chance to see you. Take care of my
Teng contends this was not suicidal
but merely a statement which
illustrated that Chen thought he might
be going to jail and because he knew
that Teng planned to move to the United
States, he asked Teng to look after his
family in Pittsburgh.
Teng said Chen conveyed perhaps the
most important message that evening
when he left the apartment at ap-
proximately midnight: He stepped out
the door and quickly glanced to both
sides of the hallway as though he
suspected he was being followed.
That night Teng said he slept very
badly. The next day he went to Chen's
brother-in-law's house where Chen, his
wife and child were staying.
To his surprise, he said, he found the
house empty. The next day-July 4-he
read in the newspaper that Chen had
been found dead.

'WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?'
Psalm 2:1 and Acts 4:25
In Matthew 22:34-40 we read: "Then one of them, which was a lawyer,
asked Him a question, tempting "Him, and saying, Master which is the great
Commandment in The Law? Jesus said unto Him, Thou shalt love The Lord
thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is
the first and great Commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt
love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two Commandments hang all the law
and the prophets."
In The New Testament, 1st Corinthians 10th chapter, we are told that The
Angel of The Lord with The Israelites was Christ, and it was He that delivered
them out of Egypt, and went with them their forty years journey into The
Promised Land. It was His love for the children of "The Father of The Faithful,
Abraham," and His hatred of the wickedness and iniquity of the raging
heathen that caused the plagues in Egypt, the drowning of Pharoah's army in
the Red Sea, the destruction of The Canaanites, as well as a whole
