Teenage reading scores
continue to decline
NEW YORK- Reading comprehension among teenagers continues a skid
started in the seventies, a report based on a survey of 109,000 students said
More boys than girls and more older than younger students have troubles
understanding passages of printed words, said the report funded by the
National Institute of Education.
"More than a quarter of the teenagers said it is usually hard for them to
finish a book they have started; a third said it is usually hard keeping their
minds on reading," said the report.
Polish army attacks
Solidarity's crisis plan
WARSAW, Poland- Poland's army declared yesterday that Solidarity's
plan for resolving the nation's crisis "is loaded with a sizable explosive
charge." Lech Walesa, the independent union's leader, raised the possibility
of violence if the government takes action against strikers.
Walesa told a rally of striking coal miners in Sosnowiec, "A solution by
strength does not come into consideration, but it cannot be excluded ...
When they come, we will hang on to their rifle barrels, and we will direct
them to another side."
His remarks, distributed by Solidarity's information service, were con-
sidered a significant departure from the conciliatroy language he has used
in the past week, as representatives of Solidarity and the government
prepared for negotiations tomorrow on the country's social and economic
State Senate bans
Great Lakes drilling
LANSING- The Senate overwhelmingly approved yesterday three bills
effectively banning oil and gas exploration equipment from Michigan's
Great Lakes bottomlands.
The three bills, which some lawmakers said were merely "symbolic
gestures," were sent to the House on a series of 28-1 votes.
Under the bills sponsored by Senate Democratic Leader William Faust of
Westland, no oil and gas exploration would be allowed in Lakes Michigan,
Superior, Erie, and Huron. The petroleum lying beneath those lakes could be
extracted by directional drilling from equipment located far up on their
Jewish settlers protest
Palestinian guerrilla trial
NABLUS, Occupied West Bank- Jewish settlers cried for vengeance and
fought troops outside a court yesterday after the prosecution did not ask the
death penalty for four Palestinian guerrillas convicted of killing six Jews.
Fistfights broke out between troops and settlers after the prosecutor asked
for life imprisonment for the defendants. Soldiers seized one protester and
dispersed others when they tried to mob the defendants' defense attorney,
who escaped unharmed.
"It hurts me to see these terrorists alive," said Brandl Klein, mother of a
20-year-old settler killed in the May 1980 ambush in the village of Hebron.
"What did my son ever do to them?"
"Revenge is a purifying value, and we want revenge," said Yossi Dayan, a
settler "The Bible says so."
The trial was held amid growing protests by Palestinians on the West
Bank of the Jordan River, seized by Israel in the 1967 war. Military
authorities have jailed several protesters and closed schools. A curfew was
slapped on two restive towns yesterday after a firebomb injured two Jewish
