Meanwhile, officials of the banned
Independent Students' Association in
Warsaw circulated a clandestine "ap-
peal to students of the world" to show
support for Polish students. The
association was declared subversive af-
ter martial law was imposed. .
"THE TRUTH IS, one can disband an
organization, but one cannot destroy
the spirit of, solidarity," the
association's appeal stated. We know
we were and are right."
Government spokesman Jerzy Urban
told a news. conference for foreign
reporters that 3,000 young Gdansk
rioters shouted anti-police slogans and
tried to storm government buildings.
He said police used water hoses and
tear gas against the rioters.
Martial law authorities have since
tightened security in Gdansk, the nor-
thern seaport where the now-suspended
Solidarity independent labor union was
formed. Government press center of-
ficials said Western reporters will be
allowed to visit Gdansk next Tuesday.

The Kremlin has not officially
acknowledged reports it has sent
thousands of tons of food to Poland to
support that nation's communist
government, which imposed martial
law Dec. 13 after 16 months of strikes
and political unrest.
WESTERN OBSERVERS speculate
the Soviet leadership has been afraid to
admit it is sending food to Poland while
its own citizens scrounge and stand in
lines to buy groceries.
The Kremlin has said it is the main-
stay of "fraternal aid" to Poland since
the imposition of martial law. At the
same time, the Soviets have accused
the United States of trying to starve the
Poles by withholding food credits and
suspending fishing rights.

IN 1955, researchers established a definite link
between asbestos and asbestosis, a disease in which
the lungs are irritated by inhalation of asbestos dust.
After exposure, the disease takes about 20 years to
surface and is almost always fatal, according to

fibrous material produced from rock and well known

During the construction boom of the 1930s and

Asbestos exposure has also been linked to three
other diseases: cancer of the respiratory system,
"asbestos corns" (small skin lesions resembling
blisters), and mesothelioma-a rare cancer of the
chest and abdominal lining which is usually fatal

Witnesses give damaging
testimony in Atlanta trial
ATLANTA- Witnesses testified yesterday that they saw Wayne Williams
in the company of the two youths he.is accused of murdering shortly before
they died, and that Williams was holding hands with one of them.
Robert Henry, a surprise witness who came to the prosecution's attention
only two days ago, said he saw Williams holding hands with 27-year-old
Nathaniel Cater on the evening of May 21. That was just hours before
Williams was stopped near a Chattahoochee River bridge where prosecutors
contend Cater's body was dumped. The body was pulled from the river May
A second witness, A.B. Dean, said he saw Williams with 21-yer-old Jim-
my Ray Payne on April 22, 1981, the day Payne disappeared. Dean, an
elderly resident of suburban Douglas County, said he saw Williams again the
next day near the Chattahoochee.
Brezhnev assails U.S. policy
MOSCOW- President Leonid Brezhnev yesterday denounced the Reagan
administration policy linking resumption of arms talks with Soviet actions in
other areas-notably Poland and Afghanistan.
But the Soviet leader also emphasized a need for the two superpowers to
negotiate a reduction in nuclear arms at a time of world conflict he
described as the most serious in 35 years.
U.S. and Soviet diplomats have reported little progress in talks that
opened in November aimed at limiting European deployment of medium-
range nuclear missiles, including Soviet SS series weapons.
Dozier arrives in Washington
WASHINGTON- Brig. Gen. James Dozier returned home yesterday after
42 days as a captive of terrorists, his arrival made more dramatic by a once-
aborted landing of the plane bringing him back.
With Vice President George Bush and other dignitaries looking on, the Air
Force C-141 Starlifter broke out of clouds at 2 3 feet, banked right, then left,
and roared aloft again. On his second approach a few minutes later, the pilo
made a perfect landing.
An Air Force spokesman said the plane-was never in danger and Dozier
made no mention of the incident in his brief remarks.
"It's doggone good to be home," Dozier said.
Meanwhile yesterday, the House of Representatives passed a resolution
praising the Italian government and its anti-terrorist police for the rescue of
