Reagan getting more antibiotics


WASHINGTON (AP)-President Reagan,
described as alert and in good spirits, was running a
slight fever yesterday and doctors took the
precaution of giving him additional antibiotics
although they said there was no evidence of infection
in his lung.
A morning chest X-ray showed "modest clearing"
of lung infiltrates-probably dried blood or damaged
tissue-along the track of the bullet that entered his
left lung in an assassination attempt a week ago.
A MEDICAL REPORT issued by the White House
said that "existing cultures and review of specimen
smears show no evidence of bacterial infection."
Nevertheless, as a precaution, doctors said they
widened the types of antibiotics given to Reagan to
reach more kinds of bacteria that could cause infec-
After a restful night at George Washington Univer-

sity Hospital, the medical bulletin said, "The
president continues to be alert and in good spirits."
Reagan received a written national security
briefing that included an update on the crisis in
Poland, met briefly with his three top aides, read
newspapers and briefing papers, but conducted little
other official business, according to deputy White
House press secretary Larry Speakes.
SPEAKES SAID Reagan was not expected to be
released from the hospital by tomorrow, but said
there was "some speculation he'll be back (at the
White House) at week's end."
Reagan was visited in his hospital suite by his wife,
Nancy, and daughter, Maureen. House Speaker
Thomas "Tip" O'Neill also was dropping by. Earlier,
Reagan had walked the length of his hallway for
White House press secretary James Brady,

recovering from a bullet wound through the brain,
was able to open his eyes and was making jokes, the
medical bulletin said.
"THE FACIAL swelling is gradually receding," it
said, adding that Brady can open his left eye only
with "some difficulty."
Brady took his first look at his doctor, Arthur
Kobrine, and remarked, "Not a bad job, doc," accor-
ding to the medical statement.
"Mr. Brady's thinking processes and speech con-
tinue to improve," it said. "He now makes quips and
jokes spontaneously."
Timothy McCarthy, the Secret Service agent shot
in the liver, "continues to make excellent progress,"
the medical bulletin said. And police officer Thomas
Delahanty, shot in the neck, was "up and around and
eating well."

Supreme Court expands
religious freedom for workers
WASHINGTON-The Supreme Court, dramatically expanding on-the-job
religious freedom, ruled yesterday that a worker who quits because of
religious beliefs can collect unemployment compensation.
By an 8-1 vote, the high court said the state of Indiana must pay unem-
ployment benefits to a Jehovah's Witness who quit work rather than help
manufacture parts for military tanks.
Chief Justice Warren Burger, writing for the court, warned the nation's*
courts that they "should not undertake to dissect religious beliefs."
Those beliefs "need not be acceptable, logical, consistent, or comprehen-
sible toothers" to be constitutionally protected, Burger said. He added that
the beliefs do not have to be shared by all the members of a religious sect.
Many laid off due to coal strike
Effects of the 11-day-old nationwide strike by soft coal miners spread fur-
ther through related industries yesterday as scattered, peaceful picketing
was reported in Virginia, Illinois, and West Virginia.
There was no scheduled resumption of talks between the United Mine
Workers and the Bituminous Coal Operators Association, but a spokesman
said the UMW's bargaining counsel had been told to report to Washington
Friday to decide its next step.
Industry observers said the strike, which began March 27, has hurt hun-
dreds of large and small coal-related industries such as companies that
make or repair mining equipment.
Norfolk & Western Railroad announced 10 days ago that 1,500 workers
were laid off because of the strike.
Another missing in Atlanta
ATLANTA-A retarded man
missing since March 30 was ad-
ded yesterday to the list of young
blacks whose murders and
disappearances are being probed
by a special police task force,
raising the count of unsolved
cases to 25. h
Larry Rogers, 21, was the
second slightly built, retarded
adult to be added to the list of 22
deaths and three disappearances
probed by the task force. He was
reported missing Friday.
Rogers is the second con-
secutive mentally retarded adult
on the list, which previously in- '
cluded no one over the age of 16.
The name of Eddie "Bubba"
Duncan was added last week af-
ter his body was recovered from
the Chattahoochee River near the
western Atlanta suburbo
Douglasville. -.
Despite the attention being.
given to the series of child mur- Rogers
ders, Andrew Young, who an-
nounced his candidacy yesterday " " added to disappearance list
for mayor of Atlanta, said they should not be an issue in the race.
"I think the general agreement amongst most of the announced can-
didates is that that should not be an issue," the 49-year-old former am-
bassador to the United States Nations said. "Our objective is not to put the
city on trial or the police on trial. Our objective is to catch the killers and put
them on trial."
Asked why he wished to take on the challenges of running a complex city
government, he replied, "I don't know anyone better qualified to take on
tough challenges than me.

the Senate Education Committee, when
its estimations for tuitions hikes and
Senate appropriations are taken into
account, the deficit should only be
about $11.7 million.
However, John Bruff, chairman of
MSU's Board of Trustees, said he
believes the Senate committee used
inaccurate figures on which to base the
budget deficit.
because MSU and the Senate used dif-
ferent figures for cost-of-living tuition
increases and state appropriations.
The Senate Education Committee
disapproves of the Board's decision to
lay off tenured faculty, stating that it
would be setting a very dangerous
Bruff said that the university will at-
tempt to reassign faculty to other
teaching positions at MSU or will assist
them in finding jobs elsewhere. In-
dividual faculty members may also
request a hearing if they feel their
rights have been violated.
ONE FACULTY member, Associate
Professor of Humanities James Ander-
son, has already filed a suit charging
that the Trustees' decision violated the
Bylaws of Academic Governance. The
court decided that the bylaws are still
in effect although MSU is in a state of


crisis. The court did not decide whether
the bylaws had been violated, accor-
ding to Anderson's attorney Tom
"The damage to this university is
going to be incredible. It's going to last
a long time," said Frank Blatt, an MSU
physics professor and chairman of a
faculty committee on academic
freedom and tenure. "University ad-
ministration decided to juggle figures
in a conscious effort to create an at-
mosphere of crisis. We have had one
crisis after another since (MSU
president Cecil Mackey) has taken
over. I think he has successfully
alienated the faculty, alumni and
legislature," Blatt said.
Blatt also said that the budget cuts
would be "very damaging" to the
university's recruitment of students
and faculty. He said any parent would
think twice before sending his son or
daughter to MSU.
NOTING THAT THE termination of
100 faculty members will only save
MSU about $2.5 million, Blatt remarked
that the university will get "a very bad
reputation for a very small amount of
money." Blatt also said he belives the
program reductions can be carried out
without dismissing a single faculty
But Trustee Bruff said that would not
be possible unless the budget cuts were
made across the board. He said the
trustees prefer a selective program ap-
proach, much like the University of
Michigan's "smaller but better"
program. Almost every college in MSU
is being cut back by amounts ranging
from 5 percent to 30 percent.

reopen old cases on 40 others
ANGLETON, Texas-The identification of the skeletal remains of two
girls missing since 1974 may.lead to new clues in the deaths or disappearan-
ces of 40 teen-age girls 10 years ago, a detective said yesterday.
The bodies of 21 girls have been found in three adjacent coun-
ties-Brazoria, Harris, and Galveston-since the girls' disappearances were
reported in 1971 and 1972.
Lt. Matt Wingo of the Brazoria County.sheriff's office said that even
though the cases were several years old, the investigation was being
renewed because of last week's positive identification of the remains of two
girls from Dickinson, south of Houston, who disappeared in 1974.
