Authorities report progress
in hunt for Buffalo slayer
BUFFALO-Police may be close to solving a bizarre series of six
slayings which has stirred racial unrest here, a prosecutor said yesterday.
"We are making progress," Erie County District Attorney Edward
Cosgrove told a meeting in a black neighborhood. "We are in the process
right now of preparing search warrants for certain places."
Tension has built up in the area since four black males were shot to
death in late September and two black cab drivers were stabbed and
bludgeoned to death last week. There was also an attempted strangling of a
hospitalized black man last week.
The discovery of the-mutilated bodies of the cab drivers last Wednesday
and Thursday touched off two nights of scattered violence. The Rev. Jesse
Jackson met with Cosgrove Friday, and later addressed an assembly of
black people, urging them to "think things through and not just react'. . .
blood is thicker than water."
Fire-gutted ocean liner sinks
JUNEAU, Alaska-The crippled Dutch ocean liner Prinsendam, which
caught fire and forced a dramatic high seas rescue one week ago, rolled over
and sank in the Gulf of Alaska yesterday morning, the Coast Guard reported.
"At 9:33 it sank in 1,480 fathoms, 9,800 feet of water, about 79 miles
southwest of Sitka, leaving one life raft and a small amount of debris," said
Coast Guard Lt. Eldo DeLong. "No signs of pollution have been detected at
this time," he added. The Prinsendam's fuel tanks, which have a 200,000
gallon capacity, were thought to be nearly full because the ship was on the
first leg of a voyage to the Orient.
Meanwhile in New Jersey, the Dutch government questioned crew
members of the ship yesterday behind closed doors to find out what caused
the fire that forced the evacuation of the ship.
Cosmonauts return after
185-day space sojourn
MOSCOW-The most travelled spacemen in history returned safely
to Earth yesterday after 185 days and 72 million miles spent in orbit aboard
the Salyut-8 space station.
Soviet cosmonauts Lt. Col. Leonis Popov, the 34-year-old rookie flight
commander, and Valery Ryumin, his 40-year-old engineer, soft-landed in the
Soviet Central Asian republic of Khazakhstan at 5:50 a.m. EDT to a hero's
welcome, the official Tass news agency said.
Both men will be given the Order of Lenin, the country's highest honor,.
and Popov will be made a Hero of the Soviet Union and given the title of pilot-
"The cosmonauts feel well," Tass reported after the initial medical
checkups following the touchdown. The cosmonauts had a running track,
bicycle exercises, and weighted suits to help keep themselves fit in the space
station. They enjoyed a varied menu, including fresh vegetables and fruit
ferried to them in unmanned transports and in Soyuz space craft used by
four separate pairs of cosmonauts who visited the station during the six-
month period.

Amin troops invade Uganda
KAMPALA, Uganda-Ugandan soldiers loyal to ousted president Idi
Amin have captured at least four towns in northern Uganda in a five-day in-
vasion that threatens to plunge the nation into a full scale tribal war,h
diplomats said yesterday.
"This is clearly more than just another cattle raid or shoot-'em-up," a
Western diplomat said. "But no one knows how far it will go.
The West Nile region, where the fighting broke out; is the home of three
of the smallest tribes in Uganda, the Lugbara, the Mahdi, and the Kakwa.
Amin is a Moslem Kakwa, and diplomats said the fighting could revive the
tribal and regional hatreds that marked his eight blood-soaked years in of-
The diplomats said more than 1,000 of Amin's followers took part in the
invasion, mowing down about an equal number of Ugandan soldiers. Tan-
zanian President Julius Nyere, who sent troops into Uganda to drive out
Amin in 1979, may order further Tanzanian intervention if he believes the in-
vaders are attempting to reinstate Amin, the diplomats said.
AFL-CIO president
blasts Reagan campaign
WASHINGTON-Ronald Reagan "is not fooling anyone" with his recent
espousal of pro-labor positions to win traditionally Democratic blue-collar
votes, AFL-CIO President Lane Kirkland said yesterday. "We in the
American labor movement are no strangers to quadrennial courtship by
political chameleons," Kirkland said. "We know expediency when we see
There is increasing concern among Democratic officials that Reagan is
making inroads in the blue-collar vote. The GOP standard bearer won en-
dorsements from two unions during the week-the 2.3 million member
Teamsters, and the 35,000 member National Maritime Union, an affiliate of
the AFL-CIO. The Teamsters and Maritime unions are the only two to endor-
se Reagan thus far, and further backing seems unlikely. Most major unions
have rallied behind Carter, and are engaged in a massive get-out-the-vote ef-
