Five firms cited for
Curene level violations
LANSING-Five Michigan firms have been cited for violating emer-
gency standards governing levels of the suspected carcinogen Curene and
could be fined a total of $1,440, the state Department of Public Health said
The citations followed the announcement last week that all plants in the
state using Curene are in violation of rules on worker exposure.
State officials are in the process of formally completing permanent rules
governing use and tolerable levels of Curene. A public hearing on those rules
has been planned for November. Emergency rules remain in effect until the
permanent guidelines win final approval.
U.S. radar planes cause
Saudi, Libyan break
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia-Saudi Arabia broke diplomatic relations with
Libya yesterday because of a dispute over the stationing of U.S. radar planes
on Saudi territory and differences about the Persian Gulf war.
On Oct. 19, Libyan leader Col. Moammar Khadafy, who supported Iran
in the war, charged that the presence of the U.S. planes desecrated Moslem
holy places in Mecca, Islam's holiest city, and called for a holy war to
The statement also accused Khadafy of "disparaging Islam" and
"sowing the seeds of discord" and "separation between the Moslem people
of the region"-apparently a reference to Libya's support of Iran and its at-
tempts to get other Arab countries to turn against Iraq in the 37-day-old Per-
sian Gulf war.
California fires scorch oil
wells, fashionable homes
LOS ANGELES-Fires of suspicious origin, fanned by the "devil wind"
of Santa Ana Canyon, scourged about 15 square miles like a blowtIrch
yesterday, destroying two oil wells and threatening about 100 fashionable
homes in suburban Orange County.
One firefighter was seriously burned as residents of Anaheim Hills and
Yorba Linda donned bandanas against the choking smoke and turned garden
hoses on the rooftops to save their $250,000 homes.
Arson was suspected in the Santa Ana Canyon blaze since the fire star-
ted in two different places, according to Bev Tinker, a spokesman for the
California Department of Forestry.
As winds gusted up to 50 mph, flames blackened 7,000 acres 30 miles east
of Los Angeles in Santa Ana Canyon, for which the legendary "devil wind"
was named decades ago.
Study says Legionnaires'
infects more than lungs
ST. LOUIS-A deadly bacterium in sometimes fatal Legionnaires'
disease not only infects the lungs but also can damage a patient's kidneys,
spleen, and bone marrow as well, said a new study released yesterday.
"What we found was that the bacterium spreads from the lungs through
the blood-probably commonly-and causes damage to other organs of the
body," said Dr. Dennis Weisenburger, a pathologist from Duarte, Calif.
The disease is fatal in about 15 percent of the cases, mostly from the
severe pnuemonia it produces. But Weisenburger said he was concerned by
reports that some victims had symptoms unrelated to pneumonia.
Court strikes down death
penalty in Massachusetts
BOSTON-The Massachusetts Supreme Court yesterday struck down
the state's death penalty law in a harshly worded 6-1 opinion that said capital
punishment is "impermissibly cruel" and "brutalizes the state which im-
The court, ruling on a 1979 law reinstating capital punishment, said the
death penalty violated the constitution ban on cruel and unusual punishment
and discriminated against minorities, "particularly blacks."
The justices said the law violated the state constitution because, among
other things, it "a denial of the executed person's humanity, and a denial of
all his rights."
It was the second time in two weeks that a court has struck down a
state's death penalty. Alabama's law was ruled unconstitutional Oct. 15 by
the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
California's death penalty, however, was upheld last Thursday by that
state's Supreme Court.
Marijuana arrests drop
WASHINGTON-Marijuana arrests in the United States dropped below
400,000 last year for the first time since 1972, the National Organization for
the Reform of Marijuana Laws said yesterday in releasing an analysis of the
latest FBI nationwide crime report.
The group cited statistics from the FBI report on "Crime in the United
States" that estimated marijuana arrests in 1979 at 391,600. The FBI
estimate for 1978 was 445,800 and the peak year for marijuana arrests was
1977 with 457,600.
"It's still a colossal waste of time, effort and money by cops, prosecutors
and judges who could be going after heroin dealers," Peter Meyers, chief
counsel for the marijuana group, said of the arrests. The organization favors
decriminalizing marijuana for personal use and making it legal for adults to
