Boston divers hunt for lost men
BOSTON - A passenger on the DC-10
jetliper that, slid into Boston Harbor

tried to tell officials that he saw

wthey kept on saying everyone was
all right, but I couldn't get it out of my
mindI what I saw,'" Donald Welsh said a
day after World Airways officials con-
firmed that two men were missing and
feared drowned in the aftermath of the
accident Saturday night.
AIR WORLD, officials had insisted
since the accident that there were 208
passengers and crew aboard and that
all were accounted for. But on
Tuesday, Edward Ringo, senior vice
president of the air carrier, said Walter
Metcalf, 69, and his son Leo, 40, both of
Dedham, Mass. were missing. ,
Federal officials sealed off the area
around the wreck of the DC-10 yester-
day as divers searched the ice-dotted
waters of Boston Harbor for the Met-
Ringo and officials with the
Massachusetts Port Authority, which
operates the airport, said they
discovered carry-on luggage belonging
to the elder Metcalf after relatives ap-
proached state police Tuesday.
FAMILY MEMBERS, who tried for
two days to learn their relatives'
whereabouts, complained that World
Airways would not give them infor-
mation, nor would port officials help.
Welsh, 25, a student at Tufts Univer-
sity dental school in Boston, said he was
seated in the front section of the plane
when it rolled off the runway at Logan
Internatinal Airport upon landing and
went into the frigid water.
The cockpit section of the plane
sheared off, flooding his cabin with sea
water. Welsh said he and several other
passengers helped rescue the flight
crew from the water.
HE SAID HE recalled seeing the
Metcalfs sititng in front row seats,
which disappeared in the accident.
"After we took those four people out
of the water, one guy said,'Look over
there!' I saw somebody floundering
about 25 feet off to the left of the plane.
We tore off some cushions and threw
them to him, but soon after the person
disappeared under the water."
Welsh said he told a firefighter and a
police officer what he witnessed but
said, "theywere all runningaround
pretty frantic" rescuing passengers.

The staff also said that chemical

but it also found reports of 61 injuries

39 of these and there were 12 cases of
dermatitis, a skin condition, and one

Auto talks hit-citical stage
DETROIT-Contract talks between the United Auto Workers and General
Motors reached the critical stage yesterday amid reports the union wants to
reopen negotiations whenever car sales improve dramatically.
Bargaining entered the final stages with less than 48 hours remaining
before the union's deadline at midnight tonight. Talks were expected late in-
to the evening and possibly all night following a late night session-Tuesday.
"We're prepared to stay all night or as long as necessary," said a GM
The UAW wants the new contract to contain a clause calling for renewed
negotiations should car sales im rove dramatically. No sales boom is expec-
te for at least the next six montIs, but union officials reasoned the so-called
"reopener" clause would reassure their members.

Study finds Laetrile useless
BOSTON- The first study of Laetrile by recognized cancer scientists has
shown the controversial extract of apricot pits is useless for treatment of.
cancer, researchers said yesterday.
A research team headed by the Mayo Clinic reported only one out of 175 in-
curable patients given Laetrile and placed on the diet commonly prescribed
with the drug began to show progress, but he later worsened and died.
Most of the others died in an average of five months, said Dr. Charles
Moertel, who headed the study. The surviving 25 are close-to death.
Loneliness linked to;illness
SEABROOK ISLAND, S.C- People with few friends and limited social
contacts may be more. vulnerable to'heart disease and other illnesses, a
California scientist said yesterday.
Dr. S. Leonard Syme of the University of California said in a report
presented to an American Heart Association meeting that four major studies
now support the theory that social isolation has a role in disease.
"My hypothesis is that this social support business somehow affects the
body's vulnerability, affects the defense system as to whether or not you
become vulnerable to the effect of these heart disease risk factors," Syme
Syme emphasized, however, that more research is needed before social
isolation can be added to the commonly accepted list of factors that.increase
a person's risk of developing heart disease.
Guerrillas attack air base
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador-- Guerrillas attacked El Salvador's
biggest air force base yesterday damaging four U.S.-made helicopters and
six warplanes with a barrage of armor-piercing rockets and machine-gun
fire, witnesses said.
"Doors were torn away, landing gear was damaged. I would not say they
were destroyed, but it'll be some time before they fly again," said an
American of the Ilopango Air Force base.
The American, who asked to remain anonymous, said he saw four U.S.-
supplied "Huey" helicopters and sixi -nidentified jets damaged on the apron
of the airport on the eastern edge of the capital, San Salvador.
A U.S. Embassy spokesmen said none of the U.S. military advisers
teaching the Salvadoran air force how to fly and repair the Hueys was at the
base at the time of the two-hour pre-dawn attack.
