Plane found uncontaminated
-SAN FRANCISCO-Passengers and crew were held aboard a Japan
Air Lines 747 for nearly an hour after its arrival from Tokyo yesterday until
an inspection determined the plane contained no radioactivity. The pilot had
feared the plane was contaminted after he flew near debris from a Chinese '
atom bomb test.
Capt. David McCarroll of the San Francisco International Airport fire
department said the plane, which landed with 35 passengers at 6:30 a.m.
EDT, "has been given a clean bill of health." The passengers and crew were
allowed to deplane at 10:25 p.m. EDT.
St. Helens erupts yet again
VANCOUVER, Wash.-Mount St. Helens confirmed scientists' pre-
dictions yesterday with its fourth and fifth eruptions in less than 48 hours,
throwing plumes of steam and volcanic ash 25,000 feet into the air, scientists
A half-hour eruption which began at 9:35 p.m. EDT was followed at 11:28
a.m. by what Joyce Routson, spokeswoman for the Federal Emergency
Management Agency, described as a three minute "toot."
Light winds wafted the initial plume, carrying a "heavy" load of ash, in
a southeasterly direction toward northcentral Oregon, said Frank Menard, a
U.S. Geological Survey geologist. Ash from yesterday's second brief erup-
tion also moved in that direction, officials said.
Iraq claims Iranian
resistance is broken
BEIRUT, Lebanon-Iraq claimed it broke the back of Iranian resis-
tance in fierce battles around Abadan and Khorramshahr yesterday, but
Iran said defenders of its vital oil cities were in hand-to-hand fighting to
break an Iraqi siege.
In New York, Prime Minister Mohammad Ali Rajai of Iran said at a
news conference that Iran believed the Unitei States already had apologized
for its support of the deposed shah and that a decision on the 52 American
hostages held in Iran since Nov. 4 was "not far away."
Asked about Iran's condition that America apologize, Rajai said that
from what Iran had heard, "for us it seems that this decision in practice
already has been conveyed. All it needs is for something to be set on paper."
In Washington, there was no immediate official reaction to Rajai's
remarks, put one official said the comments sounded more conciliatory than
recent Ir nian statements.
At the major war front on the Shatt al-Arab waterway, Iraq said it had
crushed "desperate attempts'.' by Iran to break the siege of the oil refining
city of Abadan and the oil port of Khorramshahr, 18 miles away.
King Hussein supports Iraq
AMMAN, Jordan-King Hussein has pledged Jordan's total support
for Iran in the Persian Gulf war, but public sentiment in the desert kingdom
where Palestinians predominate seems to favor a more neutral position.
A "What is important is the fight against the Israelis," said a shopkeeper-
in Amman. "This business with Iraq and Iran can only detract from the
Similar views were aired in a number of interviews with people in the
capital and the southern port city of Aqaba, where a sealift to channel food
and other goods to Baghdad is being mounted.
But such opinions are not reflected in the state-run media, where there is
no criticism of the king's decision to offer air bases and even troops if
necessary to the Iraqi war effort. He is the only Arab leader openly to back

seven in Medicare fraud
CHICAGO-Seven past and present officials of Rosevelt Memorial
Hospital allegedly defrauded Medicare and Medicaid programs of more
than $780,000 in one of the largest such fraud schemes ever uncovered,.
federal authorities said yesterday.
The defendants used hospital funds for a $19,800 Florida vaction for
nore than 35 people, parties, weddings, and home remodeling, among other'.
uses, according to a 13-count indictment.
Two former owners of the 144-bed teaching hospital on Chicago's near
north side were among those named in-the indictment returned Friday by a'
federal grand jury.
The charges, which capped a 10-month investigation, alleged mail fraud'
and false statements over an eight-year period.
Australian prime minister
victorious by slim margin
SYDNEY, Australia-Australian Prime Minister MalcoM Fraser
squeaked through to a narrow victory in national elections yesterday but his
stubborn opponent refused to concede defeat and went to bed without waiting
for the final results.
It became clear, however, that Fraser's conservative coalition had won
enough seats in parliament to govern for another three years-although its
majority was sharply reduced.
With 79 percent of the votes counted, Fraser's coalition had 66 seats in
the 125-seat House of Representatives compared with only 51 for William
Haydep's Labor Party.
