Florida condominium collapses

COCOA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A five-
story waterfront condominium collap-
sed "like a house of cards" yesterday
when a crane dropped a huge bucket of
wet concrete through the freshly
poured roof, authorities said. At least
nine workers were killed and six were
missing; dozens were injured.
"The earth shookand there was a big
gust of dust," siad Gary Whittaker, a
reporter in WFTV-Orlando's office
across the street from the Harbor Cay
construction site in this Atlantic Coast
resort town just south of Cape
Canaveral. "It's all flat, except for
about three stories of one elevator
THOUSANDS OF spectators
clustered around the site as Air Force
bulldozers and Brevard County front-
end loaders pushed away rubble so

volunteers, using hands or small
shovels, could search for workers trap-
ped under the chunks of cement, steel
rods and crushed girders.
The crowd grew hushed after officials
announced that sound-detection devices
were being used to locate victims.
Witnesses said 50 to 60 workers were
on the project - about a dozen of them
on the roof - when the accident oc-
curred about 3 p.m.
AFTER FRANTIC hours spent trying
to obtain lists of workers from the
various contractors involved, officials
estimated late yesterday that six
workers remained unaccounted for,
said Jim Atkins, Brevard County Civil
Defense director. He said nine were
Two bodies carried out at about 7
p.m. had been buried in some 20 feet of

Utility trucks erected makeshift light
poles as darkness neared.
deputy said 12 more bodies in addition
to the four known dead had been taken
from the scene, but other authorities
could not confirm that.
Fran Biagi, a dispatcher for the coun-
ty emergency units, called the scene a.
"mass of confusion." She said four
bodies were taken to Holmes Regional
Medical Center in Melbourne.
Hospital officials said preliminary
counts showed 12 people undergoing
treatment at Cape Canaveral Hospital,
seven at Wuesthoff Memorial Hospital
in Rockledge and an undetermined
number at the Holmes center and the
Patrick Air Force Base Hospital.
"FIVE THOUSAND tons of bricks

fall on you and there's not much chan-
ce. It's horrible," said Dr. Richard
Weber, treating injured at the scene.
Bill Straub, a city of Cocoa Beach
building inspector, said the collapse
was triggered when the crane dropped
the bucket as workers were pouring the
last sections of the roof.
Straub explained that "wet concrete
is twice as heavy as dry. If one bucket
goes through, the whole thing can go
like a house of cards."
"It's a complete disaster, five stories
of cement, one stacked on top of
another," said Hugh Flynn, desk
manager at the Serv-Ur-Self Motel near
the accident scene.
"I was watching it pour when the
floor just gave out from under me,"
said Mike Hocko, a foreman on the con-
crete-pouring crew..

WASHINGTON (AP)-A lot of veterans aren't
happy with the attention they got at Veterans Ad-
ministration hospitals when they asked if exposure to
the herbicide Agent Orange in Vietnam damaged
their health.
A survey by the Veterans Administration, made
public yesterday by Rep. Toby Moffett (D-Conn.)
showed that four veterans in 10 said "no" when asked
if they felt "that the symptoms you reported were
given the proper attention during the course of your
A THIRD OF the veterans reported going to a
private doctor, outside the VA hospital system,
because of a problem they associated with Agent
And only 17 percent who responded said they were
told the results of laboratory tests.
As a result of that response, directives went to

every VA medical center ordering that veterans be
given written notice of the test results, according to
Dr. Barclay Shepard, a VA official who directs the
agency's Agent Orange research program.
IN AN INTERVIEW, Shepard said his "gut
feeling" is that veterans are getting complete
examinations, even if many of them do not perceive
them that way.
So far, nearly 45,000 Vietnam veterans have asked
to be examined to see if their health was jeopardized
by possible exposure in Vietnam to the herbicide.
During the war, 12 million gallons of the herbicide
were sprayed to destroy vegetation so U.S. forces
could observe communist troop movements in the
Agent Orange contains dioxin, a deadly con-
taminant. Some veterans groups contend that as a
result of exposure, an unusually high number of
disorders have occurred in Vietnam veterans.

Hardesty gets five life
sentences for murders
A Washtenaw County Circuit judge yesterday sentenced Billy Hardesty to
five life sentences for the October, 1978; murders of five persons, including
his father and mother.
Judge Ross Campbell also handed the 23-year-old Van Buren Township
man sentences of 150 to 300 years and 100 to 200 years on two additional coun-
ts of attempted murder.
The five murder counts carried mandatory life terms. Campbell ordered
Hardesty to spend them at hard labor and in solitary confinement.
El Salvador policy costs
Reagan public support
.WASHINGTON-President Reagan's decision to send military aid to El
Salvador-his first major foreign policy initiative-is finding slim popular
support. The White House mailbag, for example, is running 10-1 against the
The tepid support for Reagan's Salvadoran policies is also reflected in
recent polls showing less than one-third of those questioned backing the
president's decision to send more military aid and American advisers to
help the ruling Salvadoran junta.
The public skepticism about Reagan's stand on El Salvador contrasts
sharply with generally strong backing for his economic policies and with his
favorable overall performance rating.
Republican leaders urge
Milliken to run for Senate
LANSING-Gov. William
Milliken yesterday refused to
confirm or deny reports that Vice
President George Bush and
Senate Majority Leader Howard
Baker are urging him to run for
Senate in 1982.
U.S. Rep, Carl Pursell (R-
Plymouth) said Thursday night,
. .during the taping of a WXYX-TV
interview, that the two top
Republicans want Milliken to
.o d come to Washington.
sPursel .said,"The pitch by
d"Baker is part of a move to ensure
the GOP's new majority in the
'h Senate."
," , , 'But Robert Berg, a spokesman
. .. s' et o Seat bi Pfor the governor, said Milliken
, A .. " would not comment on the
tsdstatement.. "The governor will
neither confirm or deny it," Berg
S. said. "He said that in the course
of making up his mind, he will
Mnt.en r D talk to a greatmany people about
Milliken sthe subject."
. , silent on Senate bid Pursell said Milliken is viewed
as a highly plausible candidate
by Baker, a Tennessee Republican. "Howard is looking at the most attrac-
tive candidates possible and Milliken is one of the top five across the coun-
try;" said Purnell.
Several candidates, including former U.S. Rep. Phillip Ruppe, Detroit
department store heir Joseph L. Hudson, Jr., and state Licensing and
Regulation director William Ballenger are reportedly interested in the GOP
nomination to face U.S. Senator Donald Riegle D-Mich.)
Milliken is beginning his 13th year as governor, the longest tenure in state
Bail set for 3 whites accused
in lynching of black man
MOBILE, Ala.-Bail was set at $250,000 each yesterday for three white
men accused of the sadistic murder of a young black student found hanging
from a tree, while civil rights leaders from across the South gathered for the
victim's funeral.
Police insist they have found no evidence that the slaying was racially
motivated, but black residents of this old seaport were not convinced.
The black community was preparing a burial for 19-year-ld Michael
Donald, a part-time technical college student who was found last Saturday
dangling from a camphor tree on a residential street.
Judge stays execution
ALEXANDRIA, La.-A federal jud'ge yesterday stayed next Tuesday's

execution of convicted killer Timothy Baldwin, and Robert Williams, who is
scheduled to die the same day, took his appeal to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court.
Williams, who would be the first black executed since 1968, was turned
down by a federal district court judge yesterday in his bid for a new trial. His
lawyers immediately headed for the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The nation's 160,000 union miners
struck the soft coal industry yesterday,
and dissidents denounced a tentative
contract agreement as a "sellout" and
"not worth a dime" in a growing
rebellion against their leader.
"It ain't no contract at all. It ain't no
good at all," said Dave Harrigan, a
miner at the Saginaw No. 1 mine near
St. Clairsville, Ohio.
IN WEST VIRGINIA, members of
District 17, the UMW's largest district
with 32,000 active and retired members,
showed their displeasure by burning
copies of the proposed contract and
storming out of their meeting in
Clifford Martin, a local union
president, ridiculed the proposed $26-a-
day pay increase at the end of three
"I just put thumbs down and told all
the members of Local 8454, 'Let's get
out of here,' "Martin said. "They think
we'd sell the union for 26 bucks a day."
THE STRIKE BY the United Mine
Workers started at 12:01 a.m. EST upon
the expiration of their old three-year
contract. UMW President Sam Church,
touring the eastern coal fields, urged;
the rank-and-file to ratify the tentative
new agreement in union hall balloting
Tuesday. He predicted the walkout
would last only a few days.
Church abruptly canceled a
scheduled visit to Dilles Bottom, Ohio,
yesterday, saying only that _ he was
"running behind" time. Many miners
in that Ohio coal field have expressed
dissatisfaction with the new contract.
Church was confronted by about 200
angry miners at a union meeting in a
movie house in Fairmont, W. Va. They
shouted at the union chief, "Sellout.
You sold us out, Sam."
THE IMINERS SAID they objected to
the proposed contract provision that
would allow producers to use non-union
coal without paying royalty fees.
In Charleston, W. Va., several hun-
dred miners shouted down a local union
leader when he tried to explain the ten-
"It's a piece of garbage," yelled one
CHURCH SAID THE royalty issue
was blown out of proportion.
The union .chief said the tentative
contract would no longer require
companies to pay a $1.90-per-ton

Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25

This 2nd Psalm, of God's Book of Messages to man,
asks this question and then answers it by saying the
heathen rage to get rid of God's Commandments. It
appears our nation, in fact our world has just about
succeeded in getting rid of them! Several places the Bible
says at times the people of God fell so low that they were
"worse than the heathen!"
A number of times in recent years have seen news
items telling of other nations, whose government and
people were considered pagans by the more enlightened
nations, refusing to let some movie films produced in this

Commandments perfectly for us, paid our penalty for
disobedience, rose from the dead and engaged Himself to
write God's Law in our hearts by His Holy Spirit.
We see and hear of many who speak much of His
resurrection, His Ascension, and even of His coming
again in power and glory with His Holy Angels, and yet
reject, neglect, or pay but little attention to the Ten Words
delivered to Moses by God Himself, and proclaimed by
His Prophets down through the ages.
The demands and commands of Christ for discipleship
are indeed severe: Forsake all for Me! And - a
