4TLANTA--Police began organizing
door-to-door footpatrols yesterday and
community leaders signed up volun-
teers for weekend searches as the in-
vestigation intensified in the unsolved
slayings and disappearances of 14 black
'The action came one day after police
revealed that the body of a youth found
in 1979 has been identified as one of six
children previously listed as missing.
THE IDENTIFICATION of the body
of Alfred James Evans, 14, of Atlanta,
brought to nine the number of children
under age 15 killed in Atlanta or south
suburban East Point in the last 15 mon-
ths. Five other children are still
The slayings of the children, com-
bined with the deaths of four toddlers
and a teacher in a furnace explosion at
a day care center Monday, have riddled
the community with fear and distrust.
Police have said the furnace ex-
plosion was an unrelated accident, but
some blacks have expressed fear that
the incidents are somehow connected.
THE DECOMPOSED body of Evans,-
who was suffocated, was found last July
four days after he disappeared, but
positive identification by dental records
was not made until Wednesday.
Identification took so long, in part,
said Lt. John Cameron of the Fulton
-County Medical Examiner's office,
because the child's mother insisted it
was not him.
Except for one 14-year-old girl for-
cibly taken from her home, all the vic-
tims have been boys, who wandered off
on their own and vanished at intervals
of about three and a half weeks:
AFTER THE identification of the
body was announced, Atlanta Public
Safety Commissioner Lee Brown said
some 200 police officers and 224
firefighters will begin going door-to-
door Monday in an effort to interview
someone in every Atlanta household
about the killings.
He said officers will also pass along
safety tips to citizens.
Some officers :greeted the proposal
ONE POLICEMAN, who asked not to
be identified, said the canvasing is a
good idea, but should be restricted to
the low-income neighborhoods in
southwest Atlanta where all the victims
"I think in specific areas it would be a
justifiable use of manpower, but a door-
to-door canvass of the entire city is
ridiculous," the officer said.
He called it a publicity stunt in
response to pressure on city officials.
THE POLICE said officers will con-
duct the canvas between answering
calls, but the officer said most
patrolmen in Atlanta have so many
calls to answer they won't have much
time for canvassing.
It was-also unclear how successfully
the city's efforts to raise reward money
was going. Mayor Maynard Jackson
said Wednesday the city wanted to in-
crease the reward fund from about
$30,000 to $100,000 with contributions
from the community.
Meanwhile, the United Youth Adult
Conference, a non-profit social services
agency, scheduled searches over the
next several Saturdays of areas where
children were reported missing.

China sets off nuclear
. test in atmosphere

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON-China detonated a
medium-sized nuclear explosion in the
atmosphere yesterday, its first such
test since 1978. U.S. officials im-
mediately alerted its nationwide net-,
work of air-monitoring stations to
check for fallout that might reach the
Officials from the Environmental
Protection Agency said, however, that
they do not expect any serious health
hazards as a result of the explosion,
which occurred at 12:30 a.m. EDT at a
nuclear site in northwest China.
"WE DON'T anticipate any
,significant problems in terms of health
based on results from previous tests,"
said Harry Kelly, an EPA official.
Officials estimated the size of the
blast to be between 28,000 and 1 million
tons of TNT-or at least 10 times larger
than the explosion from the atomic
bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan in
If the EPA estimate is accurate that
would make yesterday's blast one of the
largest in China's history. In 1976,
however, China set off a nuclear ex-
plosion equal to four million -tons of
EPA officials said the Chinese blast
yesterday presented a particular
hazard because it was atmospheric ex-
plosion, rather than the usual un-
derground tests. The officials said that
it would take four to five days fpr any
possible radioactive fallout to reach the
