State panel against Project ELF
LANSING (UPI) - Members of the state environ-
mental panel that must make a key recommendation
on Project ELF had few kind words yesterday for the
Navy's latest impact statement for the submarine
"The information content of this is zero," said
William Cooper, chairman of the Michigan Environ-
mental Review Board. "There is absolutely no sub-
staftee to this at all."
THE NAVY released early this month a 35-page
outline of the proposed aboveground submarine
communications system it hopes to have in operation
in the Upper Peninsula by 1987.
MERB, a panel of citizens and state officials, must
~ r ) l
make a recommendation to Gov. William Milliken on
the environmental soundness of the controversial
The current Project ELF calls for 56 miles of com-
munications, cables mounted on telephone' poles
based at the K.I. Sawyer Air Base near Marquette. It
is substantially reduced from the 2,400-mile un-
derground Project Seafarer system vetoed by the
governor in f978.
THE LATEST Navy assessment of its project, for
which Congress has appropriated $34.8 million, is
billed as a supplement to the 12 volumes that accom-
panied Seafarer in1977.
But MERB members complained the new
statement fails to list a specific route for Project ELF
and listed only minimal environmental protection
MERB currently is scheduled to hear a presen-
tation from the Navy next month, with a vote on the
proposal set for March.
"If there are not answers to our questions, there is
no damn way we're going to vote on it," Cooper said.
"There's no point to them (the Navy) coming here in
February to report what is in this blue document and
we know what's in the other literature better than

its long distance operations, Bell

AT&T's manufacturing arm.
In the past, AY&T's profitable long

others have expressed concern that

Fibers may link Williams
to more Atlanta victims
The trial of Wayne Williams for the murder of two young blacks was
thrown open yesterday to evidence that he killed more - all connected by
tiny fibers that match those of his bedspread and carpet.
Superior Court Judge Clarence Cooper granted the motion at the start of
the fifth week of the celebrated trial. There are accepted precedents for the
move, but legal experts said they always carry consideraboe risks during
appeal. Defense attorney Al Binder's immediate motion for mistrial was
The prosectuion began presenting evidence to show "pattern, scheme,
plan and bent of mind" with the July 1979 death of 14-year-old Alfred Evans
who eventuallybecame the second name on the city's list of 28 missing and
murdered young blacks.
Williams, a 23-year-old black photographer and would-be talent scout, is
being tried only for the murders of Nathaniel Cater, 27 and Jimmy Roy
But the prosectuion claims that the fibers which are the mainstay of its
circumstantial case against Williams also connect him to 10 more of the
murders, and it asked permission to present that evidence in support of its
case on Cater and Payne.
GM sales show decline
DETROIT- General Motors said yesterday its sales for the second 10
days of January dropped 17.2 percent as car buyers waited for price cuts
promised at the conclusion of negotiations with the United Auto Workers.
Talks between GM and the UAW, which broke off last week, were set to
resume today. The union has set a midnight Thursday deadline and is giving
GM "one final chance" for a settlement.
GM's drop, while significant, was not as big as expected. GM officials last
week said dealers told them sales had virtually halted since the promise of
price cuts was made.
Total industry figures have not yet been compiled due to the lack of figures
fro6mVolkswagen of America Inc.
GM's sales of 77,247 were down 17.2 percent on a daily rate basis from the
82,976 sold during the same 19 days in 1981. So far this year, GM's sales are
down 12.9 percent over last year.
Jet crash probe shows
unusually long takeoff run
Washington tapes show the Air Florida jet that crashed Jan. 13 had an
unusually long takeoff run, began losing speed immediately after takeoff
and did not reach normal altitude, investigators said yesterday.
National Transportation Safety Board member Francis McAdams, who is
leading the investigation, said readings from the aircraft's flight data recor-
der indicate "a long takeoff run - somewhere like 15 or 16 seconds longer
than you'd expect."
WASHINGTON - The 97th Congress convened for a politically charged
second' session yesterday with all members concerned by the flagging
economy and Democrats'not sure President Reagan can pull the nation out
In a low-key resumption of activities, Congress postponed any action un-
til it hears Reagan's State of the Union address tonight, when the president
outlines what he wants in budget cuts and tax plans.
Facing soaring budget deficits that could reach $100 billion or more,
Congress appears willing to make the cuts and impose the taxes - even in an
election year - to avoid deeperdebts. 1;
a The Senate already is scheduled to vote next Monday on an amendnent
by Sens. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.), and J. Bennett Johnston (D-La.), to forbid
busing of more than 30 minutes or 10 miles round trip, and to prohibit the
Justice Department from pressing or initiating any school desegregation
suits involving busing.

Haig to meet
GENEVA, Switzerland (UPI) -
Secretary of State Alexander Haid said
yesterday his meeting with Soviet
Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko will
be a short one if Gromyko refuses to
discuss the crisis in Poland
Gromyko, who arrived hours earher
from Moscow for the meeting today
said he had "no intention whatever of
discussing problems relating to Poland
or the domestic situation in Poland."
ASKED FOR comment, Haid told
reporters: "Well, then it could be a a
Remarks made in public by Haig and
Gromyko set the stage for a cold and
brief encounter, virtually ruling out
chances of any improvement in the
chilly relations betweenMoscow and
On his arrival Sunday, Haig said he
intended to tell Gromyko "firsthand
and directly" of the "outrage" felt in
the United States over repression in
Haid and Gromyko were scheduled to
meet first at the U.S. diplomatic
mission and again in the afternoon at
the nearby Soviet mission on Geneva's
Avenue de la Paix.
Haid said he would concentrate on
events in Poland and Soviet respon-
sibility for repression in that country.
