Tower, Haig




of Cabinet choices

WASHINGTON (AP) - The list of
possible appointees to the Reagan
Cabinet narrowed yesterday, and sour-
ces in the president-elect's camp said
former Treasury Secretary William
Simon and the former governor's -per-
sonal lawyer are virtually certain to get
key posts.
Simon, according to two sources close
to Reagan's transition team, is the only
person now under serious consideration
for Treasury post he held under
President Gerald Ford. And one of the
same sources said Ronald Reagan's
lawyer, William French Smith of Los
Angeles, is the consensus candidate of
the president-elect's advisers for attor-
ney general.
ONE OF THE first names to emerge
as a leading contender for secretary of
defense was Sen. John Tower, (R-
Texas), who is "all but certain" to get
the post, according to one congressional
Reagan told reporters he didn't know
whether he would pick the conservative
Texan, who is in line to take over as
chairman of the Senate Armed Services
Committee if he remains in Congress
after the Republicans take control of
the upper house in January.
But the Capitol Hill source, who
requested anonymity, said Tower "has
been made a promise" by the incoming
administration and has been-quietly in-
forming his staff.
A SOURCE in the transition office
with access to the list of possible
choices said three other men were still
being considered for defense, including

Nixon's last chief of staff,.,and former

Eight killed
as Korean jet
gutted by fire
SEOUL, South Korea (AP)-A Korean Airlines
jumbo jet carrying 226 people struck a military
vehicle and burst into flames as it landed in fog this
morning, officials reported. An airport official said
three passengers and five crew members were killed
and 15 injured.
Passengers p caped down emergency chutes as
flames swept through the huge aircraft, and police
said many who got out were hospitalized with burns
or other injuries.
A SPOKESPERSON at Severance Hospital in
Seoul, where the injured were taken for treatment,
said the casualties were not serious. Seoul District
Aviation Control Director Kim Pyong Hoon told a
news conference the plane carried 206 passengers
and 28 crew members. He said 203,people escaped
without injury.
Earlier, airport officials had said 22 people were
killed and four injured out of a total of 22 people
aboard the plane.
A South Korean passenger told reporters the plane
circled the airport several times in dense fog, and
when it touched down it appeared to have smashed
into some object.
Police said they also were checking a report that
the landing gear failed to lock into position and the
pilot attempted a belly landing. Authorities said the
fire was brought under control in about 40 minutes.

The sound of screams
ELIABLE, SOURCES report that a group of
Cornell University students have found the
perfect way to relieve the tensions of academic
life-organized screaming. Every night at 11
p.m., dozens of residents of Cornell's north campus repor-
tedly go to their windows and scream. They say they are
following the lead of the "primates"-six freshman who

For a paltry $2.99, Birminghamr shoppers can get a brightly
packaged empty clay pot, base, and eight-page booklet of
"care instructions." "It'll be the hottest selling item in the
United States this Christmas," predicted David Woods,
owner and president of All Seasons Nursery and Garden
Center. The 29-year-old entrepreneur said that in the last
week, shoppers have snapped up 250 of the "plants." "It's
really imagination," said Woods, whose plant business also
boasts the world's largest hanging basket, measuring about
14 feet across and 18 feet deep. "It's what you want it to be."
