Salvado ran
refugees return
despite dangers


migration officials are still sending
hundreds of Salvadoran refugees back
to their war-torn country despite
possible dangers that await them there
and a freeze on pending asylum
Critics of U.S. immigration policy
claim many refugees are pressured in-
to signing statements in which they
waive their right to seek political
asylum and agree to return voluntarily
to El Salvador.
"IF NOT CERTAIN death, they face
persecution of one form or another"
upon their return, said Polly Pittman of
the liberal Council on Hemispheric
However, immigration officials deny
that pressure is applied, saying
Salvadorans caught entering the United
States illegally are advised of their
right to request asylum if they feel they
would be endangered by returning.
Administration officials also contend
that many of the Salvadoran immigran-
ts are entering the United States for
economic, not political reasons.

VERNE JERVIS, spokesman for the
Justice Department's Immigration and
Naturalization Service, said about 1,000
Salvadorans are being allowed to
remain in the United States while their
asylum request are pending.
In the final days of the Carter ad-
ministration, the State Department im-
posed a 90-day freeze on processing
Salvadoran asylum requests. That
move allowed Salvadorans seeking
asylum to remain in the United States
for at least that period.
The freeze is scheduled to expire in
mid-April and Reagan administration
officials say no decision has been made
on whether to begin granting asylum to
Salvadorans fleeing their country's
bloody civil war, which claimed about
10,000 lives last year.
Officials say the administration fears
that by granting asylum, the United
States could undercut the U.S.-backed
Salvadoran government by implying
that it cannot protect its own people or
that its security forces might actually
be carrying out the political repression.

Reagan is 70, but Dr. Dennis O'Leary,

human services. Faber says he is ',not
interested in saving money.by reduc-
tion of the quality of life."
WITH THE LOSS of federal and state
funds, Faber says the city must main-
tain programs for housing rent and
repair, legal aid, health and child care,
and aid for the elderly.
If elected, Faber plans to establish
emergency committees to deal with the
loss of funds from Lansing and
Washington, D.C. These committees
would be made up of citizens with ex-
pertise in areas where program cuts
could be made and seek alternate fun-
ding for those which could not.
At issue between the two is the
mayor's appointment powers. Faber
charges that Belcher only appoints his
conservative Republican "cronies" to
the city's boards and commissions.
BELCHER refutes this accusation,
saying that of 731 appointments he has
made as mayor, 360 were independents,
Democrats, or unknowns.
Faber sees his duty as mayor as
"servant of the community," and says
he would work to improve citizen in-
volvement in city affairs.
Belcher, on the other hand, says city
government is already open to all who
wish to participate and cites numerous
vacancies on city boards and com-
A self-described individualist,
Belcher was offered a low-level position
in the Reagan administration as
assistant secretary of commerce for
administration. "It didn't appeal to me
at all," Belcher said.
"I'm too used to being from a small
city, having a small company, and
being my own boss," he explained.
Belcher says he does not have the
"insatiable drive you really need to
make it in (statewide) politics," and
that the position of mayor will probably
be his last elected job.

Prisoner allegedly shoots
guard, drowns warden
HUNTSVILLE, Texas-A prisoner described as "high on marijuana" ap-
parently seized a gun, fatally shot a guard, and drowned the state prison
warden yesterday, a justice of the peace said.
The Huntsville Item reported that warden Wallace Pack, 54, and Maj.
Billy Max Moore, a prison guard at the Ellis Unit of the Texas Department of
Corrections, which houses death row inmates, were killed by an inmate who
was being taken back to the unit from a farming area known as "the bot-
The unidentified inmate was recaptured yesterday afternoon.
Earlier, a Montgomery County Sheriff's Department dispatcher described
the situation as "out of control" as sheriff's deputies, prison guards, and
Huntsville police converged on the farm site, which is about 75 miles north of
The incident comes three months after U.S. District Judge William Justice
ruled that the Texas prison system was vastly overcrowded and ordered
sweeping changes in health care, housing, and inmate protection.
Striking miner charged in
shooting of non-union miner
A striking United Mine Workers coal miner has been charged in the
shooting death of a non-union mine worker in the first fatality apparently
related to the 160,000-member union's walkout, officials said yesterday.
The fatal shooting, in Pennington Gap, Va., occured Friday night following
an apparent argument in a bar, said Charles Janeway, a Lee County
Sheriff's Department investigator.
The victim, Roy Manness, 25, had just completed work at the T&T Darby
Coal Co. mine and had gone to a local tavern, Janeway said.
Raymond Lester, 41, was arrested at the scene and charged with murder
and malicious wounding. Bondwas set at $50,000 in cash and $100,000 in
property, Janeway said.
Janeway indicated the shooting was strike-related, but refused to say so
Haig, Weinberger travel,
warn allies of Soviet threat
President Reagan's key foreign policy coordinators, Secretary of State
Alexander Haig and Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger, began their first
official trips abroad yesterday on separate missions warning of Soviet
threats in Poland and the Middle East.
Haig yesterday told his Egyptian hosts that he might have to end his
Mideast tour abruptly and return to Washington because of increased ten-
sion in Poland, Egyptian and Western sources said.
Arriving in Cairo on the first leg of his Middle East mission, Haig mean-
while met some resistance from the Egyptians to his proposed Persian Gulf
"strategic consensus" stretching from Pakistan to Egypt.
Weinberger, arriving in Britain at the start of a week-long trip to meet
with Washington's NATO allies in Europe, warned that an extension of War-
saw Pact military maneuvers around Poland "was consistent" with a Soviet
invasion of Poland. But he said there was no sign invasion was imminent.
Dayan enters Israeli
prime minister race
TEL AVIV, Israel-Moshe Dayan entered Israel's election race yester-
day, making an exciting three-way contest out of what had looked like a
straightforward battle between Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Labor
Party leader Shimon Peres.
If the 65-year-old soldier-statesman succeeds, it will be the third comeback
in his stormy, drama-filled career.
An opinion poll predicted 11 seats for Dayan's newly-launched party in the
Knesset, or Parliament, 46 for the Labor Party and 33 for Begin's Likud bloc
in the elections June 30.
Such an outcome would give Dayan a commanding position from which to
dictate terms for joining a coalition government.
Space shuttle countdown
to begin tonight
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.-Ground crews working around the clock are
aiming toward the start of a revised countdown late tonight for the momen-
tous flight debut of the space shuttle Columbia next Friday.
"It looks like we still have a good shot at picking up the countdown on Sun=
day," director George Page said after a status review yesterday.
If all goes well, astronauts John Young and Robert Crippen will ride the
Columbia into space, orbit Earth 36 times, and land the ship 541/2 hours late
like an airliner on the dry desert lake bed at Edward's Air Force Base in
The flight will herald a new space transportation era, different from
anything that's been done before. For the first time, in either the American
or Soviet programs, a spacecraft can be used more than once.
The first mission of the Columbia is to test whether it can perform as it's
supposed to.
