Trains collide head-on in N.Y.

Amtrak passenger train stopped on the
tracks was struck head-on by a Conrail
freight near the Dobbs Ferry station
yesterday afternoon, and police
estimated that as many as 100 persons
were injured. A congressman said the
Amtrak train was on the wrong track.
There was no initial report of
fatalities, and a spokesperson for one
hospital where between 30 and 40 in-
jured passengers were taken said most
had cuts and bruises but did not require
CONGRESSMAN Peter Peyser (D-
New York), one of the first persons at
the scene, said the freight train was
supposed to be the only train on the
track. "How this Amtrak train got on
the same track is a mystery," he said.
Three of the Amtrak cars derailed
and fire broke out in a food service car,
apparently because of a short-circuit on
the electrical third rail. Screaming
passengers kicked open windows in or-
der to escape, according to one reporter
at the scene.

A maid found the body of the 30-
year-old man at the St. Mortiz Hotel

DETECTIVE Richard Papke said
the victim apparently used drugs to

take his life. His name was withheld
pending notification of relatives.
The one-page suicide note was ac-
companied by a 10-page poem
reciting his life history.
"Life is not worth living," was one
phrase used in the farewell
message, the detective said.
Part of its contents was addressed
to a friend at a halfway house who,

"helping in my recovery from cancer."
His doctors had said last Sunday that
McQueen probably would undergo
surgery to remove what was described
as a "dead" tumor on his neck.
At Plaza Santa Maria, the actor had
fought a strong battle since August to
overcome the cancer through a therapy
program that included the controver-

doses of vitamins, and intramuscular
injections of animal cells.

DETROIT (AP)-Ford Motor Co. will
recall 523,000 cars in order to replace
engine fans whose blades could break
off, the automaker said yesterday.
It will be the eighthrecall campaign
bec#use of the fans in the last three
years. About 6.2 million fans of that
design were installed on Ford cars and
trucks between 1970 and 1977, and an
"improved design is still used" on some
cars, Ford said. About 2 million
vehicles will have been recalled in the
eight campaigns.
The latest recall is for 1973 and 1974
Ford models equipped with the 5.7-liter
(351 cubic inches) V-8 engine and air
conditioning, and 1977 Mercury Cougar
and Ford Thunderbird and LTD-II
models with the same engine and air
Seven people have been injured by
broken fans on those cars, spokesman
John Emmert said. He said he did not
have a count of how many had been in-
jured overall.
A Detroit-area mechanic was killed
by a blade in 1977.

Iran claims captured oil
minister tortured by Iraq
BEIRUT-The Iraqi press reported that doctors in Baghdad were
fighting to save the life of Iran's oil minister who suffered "serious wounds"
when he was captured at the Abadan front last week. Iran, however, claimed
that the official, Mohammad Jawad Tonguyan, was never wounded and in-
stead was injured by Iraqi torture.
The Iraqi report that Tonguyan had suffered a "massive hemorrhage
caused by serious wounds" at the front of the Persian Gulf war came as a
surprise since the minister had appeared uninjured when filmed in captivity
by European television Monday.
Iranian radio broadcast the government's claim that Tonguyan had been
tortured by his Iraqi captors to the point that "his life is in danger" and
called for international intervention to win his release. Iraq said, however,
that it had no intention of releasing Tonguyan.
ERA worker sentenced for
attempt to buy vote
SPRINGFIELD, Ill.-A former National Organization for Women
volunteer was sentenced yesterday to 150 hours of public service and or-
dered to pay a $500 fine and court costs for trying to buy an Illinois
lawmaker's vote for the Equal Rights Amendment.
Wanda Brandstetter, a 56-year-old Chicago businesswoman could have
been sentenced to seven years in prison and fined $10,000 on her Aug. 22
bribery conviction.
Branstetter vowed to continue her work for the ERA. Her attorneys
promised to file an appeal.
Polish workers strike again
WARSAW-New labor troubles flared in Poland's Gdansk area yester-
day as teachers and medical workers, demanding pay increases, took over
separate rooms at the district government offices and transport workers
staged a one-hour sympathy strike.
The renewed labor unrest followed on the heels of a stern warning by
Polish Communist Party leader Stanislaw Kania against those "who are in-
terested in constant tensions, in mass strikes." Kania said such strikes will
lead not only to political tension but to the "downright ruin" of Poland's
Bus drivers in Gdansk and other nearby cities walked off their jobs for
an hour at the beginning of the evening rush hour yesterday in a show of
solidarity with teachers and health care workers involved in pay talks.
Israeli jets strike bases
BEIRUT-Israeli warplanes bombed five Palestinian bases deep in
South Lebanon yesterday in a swift and massive retaliation for a Palestinian
rocketattack on a northern Israeli border settlement the day before.
The Israeli military command in Tel Aviv said the jets scored "accurate-
strikes" on Palestinian bases, including the city of Tyre, at least 25 miles in-
side Lebanese territory. Lebanese officials said five people were killed and
dozens wounded by the air strikes.
Yesterday's attack, which involved some U.S.-built jets, was the fourth
strike deep inside Lebanon in the past two months. Washington has
repeatedly criticized Israel for using U.S.-supplied military equipment in
such raids on Palestinian targets in violation of an agreement that the
weapons are to be used only for defensive purposes.
Inflation, unemployment rise
WASHINGTON-Inflation at the wholesale level accelerated to a 106
percent annual rate in October due to higher new car prices, while unem-
ployment edged back up to 7.6 percent despite faint indications of an im-
proving job market.
The Labor Department reported yesterday that wholesale, or producer,
prices rose 0.8 percent last month, with increases in the price of 1981-model
cars and trucks accounting for half the rise.
It was the second month in a row that cars were a major factor in the
price report. In September, wholesale prices registered a rare 0.2 percent
decline because of discounts on leftover 1980-model automobiles.
October's rise was modest compared to the monthly surges of 1.5 per-
cent during July and August, which were attributed to sharply higher food
Artificial pancreas hailed
as medical breakthrough
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.-A diabetic patient in Minnesota has received
the world's first implanted insulin pump, an experimental device that acts
as an artificial pancreas and should free the patient of the daily ritual of in-
sulin shots, doctors at the University of Minnesota said yesterday.
The pump, about the size of a hockey puck, will deliver a steady trickle
of insulin to the bloodstream, the doctors said. The device should also reduce
the'risk of eye, kidney, and blood vessel damage that often accompanies
severe diabetes, the doctors reported.

It was the first time that the federal government's Food and Drug Ad-
ministration allowed researchers to implant the device in a human patient.
Researchers said yesterday's medical breakthrough could lead to other
significant advances.

We are undertaking to make John Wesley our guest
columnist today by quoting from his "message to man-
kind," especially concerning the lost condition of the soul
of man, and then upon the one condition upon which one
might be admitted to the Methodist Society.
"Mine and your desert," said Wesley to his hearers, "is
hell; and it is mere mercy, free undeserved mercy, that we
are not in unquenchable fire... The natural man lies in the
valley of the shadow of death. Having no inlets for the
knowledge of spiritual things, all the avenues of his soul
being shut up, he is in gross stupid ignorance of whatso-
ever he is most concerned to know. He sees not that he
