City deluged with snow

In other developments, city officials
said they were having difficulty han-
dling the inclement weather. "We have

to go over streets again and again," ex-

John Millspaugh. "Once we get to one

City snow removers are concen-
trating primarily on major streets,
Millspaugh said. Employees are
working 12 hour shifts to combat the
elements, he added.
City buses found it "impossible" to

make scheduled stops yesterday, ac-
cording to Richard Simonetta,
executive director of the Ann Arbor
Transportation Authority. Regular bus

service ended last night along with dial-
a-ride, he said. AATA officials will
decide early this morning whether to
run buses today, Simonetta added.

ches of snow during the day, with an
additional four inches overnight.
The snow-and the wind that made it
feel like 48 or 50 below zero in many
places-stretched from Montana to
Ohio, sending shivers through more
than a dozen states. Officials pleaded
with people to stay home and keep off
icy roads where drifting, blowing snow
made it hard to see more than a few
The road conditions were blamed for
fatal accidents in Iowa, Michigan, and
Kansas. There was a massive pileup
yesterday on Interstate 88 at Altoona,
Iowa, and Policeman Kenneth Kincaide
said four people were killed.
A 16-YEAR-OLD girl from Eaton
Rapids was hit by a car as she walked
to school yesterday morning and a Lost
Springs, Kan., woman died Monday
night when her car collided with a
truck. A snowmobilertwhobecame
separated from his party near West
Yellowstone, Mont., on Saturday was
found frozen to death across the border
in Idaho Monday night.
The National Weather Service said

yesterday afternoon that a blizzard
warning was in effect for eastern.
Nebraska and added that near-blizzard
conditions prevailed across Kansas and
Iowa. Winter storm warnings continued
in parts of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio,'
Michigan, Wisconsin, and Kentucky.
The snow accumulations are not
likely to be big enough to ease the
drought in most parts of the country.
The weather service says it takes 10 in-
ches of snow to provide the amount of
moisture in 1 inch of rain, although the
amount varies depending on whether
the snow is wet or dry.
Scattered power failures were tied to
the cold. Between 480 and 500 homes in
Helena Mont., many that use elec-
tricity for heating, were without power
for more than three hours yesterday
morning in temperatures of 27 degrees
below zero. The cold in Montana even
forced a ski area, Bridger Bowl, to
close for the day.
There were warnings that driving
would become more dangerous as the
day wore on and airports reported
delays and, in a few cases, closings.

United Press International reports
Study saysTMI operators
held information
WASHINGTON-Operators of the Three Mile Island nuclear plant in Pen-
nsylvania withheld initial information from the government on the severity
of the March 1979 accidentthere, House investigators claimed yesterday.
In the early hours of the nation's most serious civilian nuclear accident,
plant managers supplied misleading data to state and federal officials, the
investigators' study added.
It was the first time any major investigative report on the accident alleged
deliberate withholding of information by the utility.
The tudy said that while control-room technicians monitored instruments
that reected a hydrogen explosion inside the damaged reactor and showed
core temperatures of over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit they did not relay this to
The accident so badly damaged the reactor core that nearly two years
later, the plant remains highly contaminated with radioactivity.
S. Korea holds election today
SEOUL, South Korea-A cartoon in a Seoul newspaper was headlined
"Party Slogans," and pictured a three-man band making music that came
out "fair elections." The tag line at the bottom said "but seeing is
It could be interpreted as reflecting the degree of expectancy, or uncer-
tainty, about nationwide balloting today for an electoral college that will
select a president of South Korea eb. 25 under a new constitution adopted
last October. President Chun Doo-hwan is the candidate of the dominant
Democratic Justice Party and is expected to win.
Three other parties have entered presidential candidates, however, and
since campaigning began much stress has been put on public calls for fair
voting. Over the weekend, the secretaries-general of six political parties
held a meeting that was described as aimed at making the balloting "fair
and clean."
Pro-lifers present bill defining
life as moment of conception
WASHINGTON-Confident opponents of abortion are trying to pass a sim-
ple bill defining life as starting at conception-a new strategy one expert
said Monday would effectively nullify the 1973 Supreme Court ruling permit-
ting abortions.
The legislation would need only a simple majority in both houses of
Congress-far easier to accomplish than obtaining the two-thirds support of
both houses and ratification by three-fourths of the states required for a con-
stitutional amendment banning abortions.
Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) and Reps. Henry Hyde (R-Il1.) and Romano L.
Mazzoli (D-Ky.), introduced identical bills Jan. 19 that would declare:
"Human life shall be deemed to exist from conception."
El-Salvador school raided;
university officials arrested
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador-Police raided a Roman Catholic high
school yesterday and arrested the directors of the University of El Salvador
as they gathered for a meeting, the government announced.
The university had reported the directors were kidnapped by about 20 ar-
med men, but junta President Jose Napoleon Duarte told reporters later that
security forces made the raid because they believed there was a meeting in
progress of the Democratic Revolutionary Front. The front is an umbrella
organization of left wing, non-guerrilla groups seeking to topple the civilian-
military junta.
An employee at the school said "at least 15 people" were taken away by
uniformed police armed with pistols and submachine guns.
A government official said those arrested were taken to police headquar-
ters for questioning and "those who have nothing to do with this organization
(the FDR) will be freed."
Boy still missing in Rockies
ESCONDIDO, Calif.-A jacket and a tennis shoe believed worn by a 9-
year-old boy missing for three days was found yesterday near the cold, fog-
shrouded summit of Palomar Mountain. But there was no further sign of the
boy or a volunteer searcher also reported lost.
A 78-person search party stumbled through rocky, brush-hidden canyons
at the 5,000-foot level, looking for Jim Beveridge, who disappeared Saturday,

and for retired San Diego police Capt. Eric Enell, a family friend who disap-
peared Sunday while helping in the search.
Searchers said they found the clothing about three miles from the spot to
which the boy's family had driven for a weekend outing.
