Medical school
prof, 501, dies

Medical School Prof. Joseph Baublis,
a nationally known expert on Reye's
Syndrome, died last Saturday evening
at University Hospital of an apparent
heart attack. He was 50.
A medical school faculty member for
nearly 20 years, Dr. Baublis was a
professor of pediatrics and com-
municable diseases and pathology.
One of his major research interests
was in Reye's Syndrome, the
sometimes fatal condition which afflic-
ts children during the recovery period
of viral diseases, another area in which
he had conducted intensive scientific

Dr. Baublis recently had initiated a
new research program at the Univer-
sity directed ata gaining a fuller under-
standing of the Syndrome.
John Gronvall, dean of the Medical
School, said Dr. Baublis' death was
"particularly tragic in that his con-
tributions as a physician should be lost
at a time when he had been at the
forefront of advances achieved irr
research into the cause of Reyes syn-
drome and its treatment."

United Press International reports
Reagan lowers voice
on El Salvador policy
WASHINGTON-The Reagan administration, faced with widespread
public skepticism over its El Salvador policies, has begun to back away from
its effort to make that country the initial testing ground in its campaign
against Soviet expansionism.
The attempt to lower the administration profile appears to stem from
public concern that the nation may be headed for a Vietnam-type in-
volvement in El Salvador as well as U.S. inability to convince allies of the
wisdom of its policies.
The new approach was unveiled by a senior State Department official who
opened a briefing for reporters yesterday by saying, "The Salvador story is
running five times as big as it is."
Ontario opposes easing of
environmental restrictions
TORONTO-The Ontario government asked the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency yesterday to reject the applications of Michigan and five
other states for eased restrictions on chemical emissions that lead to the
formation of acid rain.
Ontario joined New York in seeking to halt the loosening of environmental
standards for 18 power plants. Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, West
Virginia and Tennessee have asked to have the controls reduced.
"Ontario seeks assurances that state.. . plans for air pollution control will
be strengthened and not relaxed."
Committee recommends
higher retirement age
WASHINGTON-A special panel appointed by Congress to seek ways to
rescue Social Security from predicted bankruptcy recommended yesterday
the retirement age and eligibility for Medicare be gradually raised from 65
to 68 beginning next century.
The National Commission on Social Security also voted to take Medicare
financing out of the payroll tax funds which finance both the medical
program and Social Security benefits.
The extra funds would shore up Social Security while income tax revenues
would cover Medicare.
Congressional action on the recommendations is uncertain.
Polish workers threaten
to stage warning strikes
WARSAW, Poland-Workers in the central Polish city of Radom
threatened yesterday to stage warning strikes and general walkouts at more
than 300 factories unless the government negotiates 17 demands by the
Solidarity independent union.
The Radom strike threat was issued after a meeting of Solidarity union
representatives from 34 area factories, despite an appeal for restraint from
Solidarity chief Lech Walesa, who headed off a strike in the textile city of
Lodz earlier in the week.
The action presented the Polish government with its second challenge this
week from a major industrial region of the country.
The government did not immediately respond, but continued its campaign
against dissidents in the press and through police actions.
Drifter charged with murder
DALLAS-Police yesterday prepared four murder charges and con-
sidered three more against a 25-year-old homosexual drifter who allegedly
killed "because he likes to."
The suspect, David Villarreal, sought by Dallas police for two years, was
jailed under $90,000 bond. Dallas police said three murder charges would be
filed against Villarreal and authorities in San Antonio were preparing
The seven slayings to which Villarreal was linked, four in Dallas and three
in San Antonio, were marked by their brutality and homosexual overtones,
investigators said.
Pro-nuclear mayor
ousted in Japan
TOKYO-Townsfolk of Kubokawa, in southwestern Japan, have booted
their mayor out of office for supporting construction of a local atomic power
station. The ouster meant a major setback to the Japanese government's
ambitious but trouble-ridden atomic energy program.
Prime Minister Zenko Suzuki, who views nuclear energy as indispensable
to the nation's economic future, said in a speech to the Diet (parliament)
Monday that nuclear power "undoubtedly is the most realistic alternative"

to crude oil, which fuels about 70 percent of Japan's energy needs.
Fujito's recall by voters was the first such action in Japan, a country
known for its "anti-nuclear allergy" because of its experience as the only
nation to suffer atomic bombing.
