Air standards to
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Reagan ad-
ministration will propose easing air pollution
regulations to permit major oil refiners and auto
assembly plants in California to increase production
substantially, Vice President George Bush's office
Bush's office siad the change, which actually would
affect not only President Reagan's home state but
could have a major environmental impact
throughout the country, would permit refiners and
other sources of air pollution to modify their plants
without significantly increasing air pollution.
AN ENVIRONMENTAL spokesperson, however,
charged that the "seemingly technical little
changes" would give away the government's prin-
cipal tool for encouraging manufacturers in polluted
areas to build clean, modern plants.
The announcement was made not by EPA, which is
to propose the new rules tomorrow, but by Bush,
whom Reagan has appointed to head his regulatory
relief task force.
The rule change would "sharply reduce red tape
binding new industrial development while continuing
to protect public health against air pollution," the
"These modifications will allow state refiners to
process more than a quarter-million additional
barrels a day of California oil in place of imported oil
now being refined. . . The change will also allow two
General Motors assembly plants - in Van Nuys and
Southgate, Calif. - to retool, which will allow these
plants to build smaller cars."
THE NEW RULE, if adopted after a required
period for public comment, would alter the inter-
pretation of a section of the Clean Air Act that forbids
construction of a new "major source" of emissions in
areas that do not have an approved plan to meet
federal air quality standards. The law also forbids
"modification of a major source that would increase
The new regulation would redefine the word
"source" to include an entire plant rather than, for
instance, a single smokestack or one part of the plant.
Under existing rules, a manufacturer who wanted
to retool to make smaller cars would have to employ
the best available technology to ensure that his new
facility emitted no more pollutants than necessary
and under no circumstances more than the facility
being replaced. The net effect in most cases would be
to reduce that manufacturer's total contribution to
the area's pollution problem.
BUT UNDER THE newv rule, the same manufac-
turer could build whatever he chose so long as the net
effect of all his facilities was not to increase pollution
throughout the area.
Richard Ayres of the Natural Resources Defense
Council rejected the suggestion that the proposal
would cut government red tape.
"It is anything but regulatory reform," he said. "It
does nothing to reduce the burden of regulation-...
If anything it may be more complicated."

Chinese academies of sciences,
medicine, and the social sciences,"
Shapiro said. "We have in mind modest
exchanges of faculty and students with
Tsinghua University and Peking
The two Chinese universities, both in
Peking, are among several universities
the University delegation will visit.
Shapiro hopes to set up a mutual set
of exchange opportunities with a "two-
way flow" of students between China
and the University. In the past years
such exchanges have been hard to
arrange, he added.
ACCORDING TO Oksenberg, there
are presently more than 60 scholars and
students from China at the University,
but there are "less than a handful" of
University people studying in China.
"Michigan's approach will be
modest, and will be based on the prin-
ciples of reciprocity and mutual
benefit," Oksenberg said. "The trip will
give President Shapiro a chance to
become better acquainted with Chinese
scholars and to explain to them oppor-
tunities available here for research."
The University could gain research
opportunities in China in the areas of
the humanities, social sciences, and
some natural sciences, Shapiro said. In
return, the Chinese can take advantage
of research opportunties here in the
social, physical and life sciences, he

Atlanta volunteers continue
search for 21st child
ATLANTA-About six hundred volunteers searched yesterday for the last
of 21 missing Atlanta black children, 20 of whom have been found slain.
Searchers concentrated their efforts on an area where 13-year-old Curtis
Walker was found Friday in a river southeast of downtown Atlanta by
firemen who happened to be driving across a bridge and saw the body
floating in the water.
A musician who admits he is now afraid for his own life said yesterday he
was a suspicious car in the area where Walker's body was found Friday.
The only child still unaccounted for on the list of a special task force that
has been set up to investigate the baffling string of crimes is 10-year-old
Darron Glass, who disappeared last September.
Polish labor peace threatened
WARSAW, Poland-Independent union leaders in the Polish city of Lodz
yesterday announced they would stage a warning strike next week that
would grow until it shut down the entire industrial province unless five union
members fired from their jobs are reinstated.
Solidarity leader Lech Walesa accused the government of seeking to
provoke strikes through a crackdown on dissidents and a local union in Lodz.
Unless reversed, the Lodz decision would shatter Poland's fragile labor
peace which began Feb. 20 when the last major strike was settled in the
southeast. Settlement came after an appeal from Wojciech Jaruzelski,
Poland's newly installed prime minister and the chief of defense, for a 90-
day strike moratorium.
Iraqs President Hussein
vows 'endless war' on Iran
BEIRUT, Lebanon-Iraq's warplanes, artillery, and missiles pounded
Iranian targets with renewed fury yesterday and its president vowed to
wage "endless war" after Iran rejected a cease-fire plan by Islamic
mediators. War communiques from both sides indicated it was the fiercest
fighting in two months.
Iraq's high command said 292 Iranians were killed Friday night and
yesterday with the Waviest battles at Sar-e-Pol-e-Azahab at the northern
end of the 300-mile front. The command said "vicious battle raged. . . In
which all available weapons were used" and 203 Iranians died there.
Iran's military command reported at least 19 Iranians killed and 128
wounded and widespread destruction of residential and commercial areas of
its "savagely bombed" cities in the southwest.
Baghdad Radio quoted Iraq's 43-year-old President Saddam Hussein as
vowing "endless war" and telling a mass rally near the Iraqi capital that
Iran would pay dearly for its refusal to recognize Iraq's territorial claims.
Breakthroughs made for
contact lens wearers
NEW YORK-New hair-thin contacts for the near,sighted fee like plastic
wrap and can be worn for two-weeks, doctors who field-tested them report.
At the end of two weeks, the contacts must be taken out and swished in
nothing more exotic than a cupped palm holding a little special detergent,
said Dr. Jerome D. Poland, one of the principal investigators.
Polatnd, from the University of Minnesota Medical School, and other ex-
perts at the National Conference on Extended-Wear Contact Lenses said the
record thin contacts, recently approved for general use by the Food and
Drug Administration, can't pop out.
The lens is called Hydrocurve II.
Saccharin con sumption
WASHINGTON-Four years ago Monday the government announced it
would have to ban most uses of saccharin. Today, Americans are consuming
the sweetener at an unabated pace, and chances of a ban are remote at best,
according to Richard Cristol of the Calorie Control Council, which represen-
ts the makers of diet soda drinks.
Since 1977, the FDA has been under orders from Congress not to proceed
with plans to remove saccharin from processed foods. The moratorium,
which was extended once, will doubtless be extended again June 30.
Cristol said the industry will complete a multigeneration animal study at
the end of 1982 which the industry hopes will give them a better fix on the
health hazards of saccharin.
