OTTAWA (AP) - President Reagan
ended a two-day visit to Canada with a
promise yesterday to revitalize the
United States' economy, regain the
respect of its allies and oppose "Soviet
adventurism around the earth."
In a televised speechebefore the
Canadian Parliament, the president
confessed that "the United States in the
last few years has not been as solid and
stable an ally and trading partner as it
BUT HE SAID his "near-
revolutionary" economic program,
submitted Tuesday to Congress, is in-
tended not only to solve domestic
problems but "to restore the confidence
of our friends and allies in what we are
He told Prime Minister Pierre
Trudeau and his other Canadian hosts
that a stimulated U.S. economy will
produce millions of new jobs, many of
them in Canada.
The president's speech to
Parliament, interrupted repeatedly by
applause, climaxed a visit in which
both governments openly
acknowledged their differences but ex-
pressed a common determination to
ON HIS RETURN to the White House
yesterday afternoon, the president
said, "It was a very fine meeting,
really, I think we established the basis
for further working together. We wer~e
very pleased and I think they were, too.
A very heart-warming experience."
Trudeau said that despite "deep
disappointment" over U.S. withdrawal
of an East Coast fisheries treaty gover-
ning conservation and division of fish
stocks, the neighboring nations had
assured each other "there will be no
The joint willingness to keep trying to
reach some sort of agreement on the
fishing issue, which has taken on
national political significance in
Canada, seemed symbolic of Reagan's
brief visit to the Canadian capital. The
problem wasn't solved, but both sides
seemed pleased they could still talk
A VARIETY OF other major disputes
involving environmental matters,
energy policy, and, foreign affairs,
came up during the visit, but no
breakthroughs had been expected and
none was announced.
Yesterday's story on the University's
Chamber Choir and Chamber Ensem-

incorrectly stated that this was the first
time a person or group affiliated with
the University has been nominated.

member of the Philadelphia Brass En-
semble, was nominated for a Grammy

MSA ELECTIONS, APRIL 7, 8
for mass transit system
LANSING-Michigan apparently will receive a $600 million federal grant
to beef up mass transit in the Detroit area, a transportation official said
yesterday, but Governor William Milliken cautioned nothing is final.
Deputy Transportation Director James Kellogg said U.S. Transportation
Secretary Drew Lewis has confirmed the federal government's commitment
to making the long-sought grant, but said details have not been worked out
and the state may have to scale back its ambitious plans for the area.
Kellogg said he did not know whether the Detroit subway or any other par-
ticular component of the plan would be affected.
Pakistan releases terrorist's
father in plea for hostages
DAMASCUS, Syria-Pakistan released two prisoners yesterday and sent
them with a top negotiator to Damascus to try to save the lives of 102
hostages held by three terrorists aboard a hijacked jetliner for the past 10
The two prisoners flown to Damascus were the father and brother of one of
the terrorists, whose hostages included three Americans among the 93
passengers and nine crew on the Pakistan International Airlines plane.
The terrorists, who have already killed one hostage and threatened
repeatedly to kill the rest, said they would give Pakistan until 11 a.m. EST
today to release 90 other prisoners. They said this was the last of several
deadlines, including one that had passed earlier in the day.
Under the latest offer, as many as 96 prisoners would be flown to
Damascus and exchanged for the hostages, military sources said. The
terrorists and the freed prisoners would then fly to an undisclosed
Anti-unionists beat four
students in Poland
WARSAW, Poland-A reported beating of four high school students by an
anti-union squad raised new tensions in Poland yesterday.
A spokesman for the Solidarity union chapter in Radom, 50 miles south of
Warsaw and long a center of labor agitation, said the four students were
reported beaten by four men who were tearing down Solidarity posters.
He said the students recognized one of the four as a local policeman and
added that the union had appealed to the police to purge its ranks of such
members. He said 30 parents, pupils, and teachers were expected to meet
later near Radom, which has been on strike alert since Monday over broad
union demands for an end to alleged "oppression" of members.
In Washington, State Department spokesman William Dyess said the key
to the Soviet bloc maneuvers later this month is the level of troops that might
participate. He said the United States is not yet in a position to judge how
many that might be. The exercises were announced Tuesday by Moscow and
Radiation leak found in
New Jersey power plant
LOWER ALLOWAYS CREEK, N.J.-Ten workers were evacuated from
an auxiliary building at the Salem I nuclear power plant yesterday when low
levels of radioactive material began to leak from a waste-gas compressor
pump, authorities said.
The lead was discovered when "an alarm went off on a scanner" used to
detect radiation on employees leaving the buildings, said Kathryn Forsyth, a
spokesman for Gov. Brendan T. Byrne's office.
Public Service Electric & Gas officials would not release the name of the
worker who set off the scanner, but said he did not require medical attention.
Public Service Electric & Gas officials cancelled the alert, which lasted
over two hours, after the leak was stopped and "higher-than-normal"
radiation levels dissipated, a utility spokesman said.
PSE&G spokesman Art Lenehan said the radiation posed no threat to the
public and all ten evacuated workers were "given a clean bill of health."
Lenehan said plant workers would begin repairs on the pump im-
mediately. The problem was in "a seal that gave off a very slight emission,
like a gasket on an automobile," he said.
Salem I is located on a 750-acre Salem County site in southern New Jersey
on the edge of the Delaware River.
Reagan budget cuts will
close National aquarium
WASHINGTON-The 108-year-old National Aquarium, home for more
than 1,000 sea creatures including a five-foot green eel, is destined for
closure because of President Reagan's budget cuts, its director said yester-
Described by the director as the oldest aquarium in the Western
Hemisphere, the facility is in the basement of the Commerce Department a
block from the White House.
The Aquarium's entire $289,000 yearly budget, contained in the Fish and
Wildlife section of the Interior Department that operates the aquarium, was
eliminated in the budget for next year.
It was established in 1873 during the administration of Ulysses S. Grant,
and attracts about a half-million visitors yearly.
