Britain imposes sanctions against Poland, USSR

LONDON (AP) - Britain yesterday became
the first of America's NATO allies to join in
imposing sanctions against Poland and the
Soviet Union because of the Polish military
crackdown Dec. 13.
The Polish and Soviet ambassadors were
summoned to the Foreign Office where an of-
ficial announced the sanctions. There was no
immediate comment from the envoys, or in the
U.S., Soviet and Polish capitals.
THE SANCTIONS include travel restrictions
on diplomats, businessmen and journalists; a
halt in new credits to Poland; tighter control
on Soviet processor ship purchases of British-
caught fish and a cutback in technical

cooperation with the Russians.
The sanctions, while not of major impact,
will put a further chill on British relations with
Warsaw and Moscow.1
"They demonstrate clearly our disapproval
of what has happened in Poland," said a
British official who declined to be identified.
PRESIDENT Reagan ordered sanctions
against Poland and the Soviet Union December
24. The U.S. sanctions included credit restric-
tions on Poland, suspension of Polish and
Soviet civil aviation privileges and Polish
fishing rights, and a ban on high-technology
sales to the Soviet Union.
Several meetings of the 10-nation European

Common Market and the 10-nation North
Atlantic Treaty Organization have been held to
discuss possible sanctions by individual
nations, but until Friday little had come forth
except strong words.
One joint decision by the Europeans and the
United States has been to suspend negotiations
for rescheduling Poland's estimated $26 billion
debt to the West and to halt all credits except
for food.
MINUTES AFTER Polish Ambassador
Stefan Stanizewski and Soviet Ambassador
Victor Popov left the Foreign Office, Deputy
Foreign Secretary Humphrey Atkins announ-
ced the sanctions in the House of Commons.

The sanctions are:
" Polish Diplomats, representatives of the
Polish airline LOT and the shipping firm GAL,
and Polish journalists will need Foreign Office
permission two working days in advance of any
travel beyond 25 miles from the center of Lon-
don and Glasgow, Scotland, where there is a
Polish consulate;
* A 75-mile restriction on Soviet diplomats and
officials in London will be tightened to 25
* No new credits of any kind will be granted
Poland "for the present;"
* Soviet factory ships processing fish pur-
chased from trawlers in British waters will

now need licenses and may be subject to cut-
backs. Britain does not allow Soviet trawlers
within 200 miles of its coast;
* Renegotiation of a 1968 marine navigation
treaty with the Soviets;
* Reductions in British-Soviet exchanges in
medicine, public health, environmental
protection, farm research and atomic energy;
" Cutbacks in political, trade and cultural
relations with Poland;
* Putting on hold officially guaranteed credits
to Poland "subject to safeguarding the in-
terests of British firms having legally binding
contractual obligations.

S heriff's
new plan
.will improve
efficitency of
car patrols

A new plan for the county Sheriff's Department to
respond immediately only to emergency calls will
result in greater efficiency, and better crime control,
sheriff's officials say.
According to the plan, dubbed the Deferred
Response Program, sheriff's deputies will respond
immediately to emergency situations and all major
crimes, such as murder, criminal sexual'assault, and
Howeyer, "after the fact" reports-for example,.
the discovery of a theft that occurred several days
earlier-will be handled as a secondary priority. This
will usually mean that sheriff's deputies may not
arrive at the scene until an appointment can be
scheduled at a later time, according to Deputy Sheriff
Susan Andersen.In some cases, officers would simply
collect information on such crimes over the phone
and avoid a visit altogether, she said.

By concentrating on crimes which have just oc-
curred, Sheriff's Department officials hope to
provide better crime control, Andersen said. Every
minute that passes between the time a crime is com-
mitted and an investigation begins reduces the chan-
ce the crime will be solved, she said.
THE NEW program will be more efficient, Ander-
sen said, because in many cases, an officer will
gather just as much information through a phone call
as would a patrol unit, while avoiding a 40-mile drive.
Andersen said the new program "will allow our
patrol cars to do more aggressive things rather than
just running from complaint to complaint. The object
is to give citizens much better service."
A study by Sheriff's Department officials indicated
that 58 percent of their calls could be handled by the
Deferred Response Program. Andersen said the
system had been tested and proven effective in Kan-
sas City, Mo., and Wilmington, Del. The DRP is the
first of its kind in this area.

Hospital ordeal ends

Reagan predicts $98.6 billion deficit in '82

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - President Reagan
Will tell Congress next week the deficit
for the curent year will be $98.6 billion,
dropping only slightly to $91.5 billion in
1983, - congressional sources said
These sources said Reagan's budget
for the 1983 fiscal year would call for
about $27 billion in new spending cuts
from domestic programs, many of
which were trimmed sharply last year.
THE PRESIDENT will seek an 18
percent increase in spending for the
Pentagon - to $221 billion - as part of
his program to "rearm America,"
sources said.
Reagan's deficit predictions are
much larger than the record deficit of

$66.4 billion in 1976, and are certain to
cause a furor'in Congress.
Sources said Reagan predicted the
deficit would fall only slightly in future
years - to about $83 billion in 1984 and
$72 billion in 1985.
TO HOLD THE deficit from growing
even larger, sources said Reagan would
propose these steps:
* cuts of $14.2 billion in domestic
programs with education, impact aid to
schools, aid to handicapped, vocational
education and student loans among the
programs affected; a
* cuts of $12.8 billion in benefit
programs, including $2 billion from
Medicaid, $2.5 billiop from Medicare;
$1.2 billion from the government's main
welfare program, Aid to Families with

Dependent Children; $2.4 billion from
food stamps; $300 million from aid for
the blind, elderly and handicapped and
$2.7 billion from retirement programs.
A cap would be placed on civilian and
military retirement programs, sources
The Congressional Budget Office said
the huge increase in the fiscal 1982
budget projection-up from the official
$37.8 billion figure - is due largely to
last year's overly optimnistic economic
assumptions, sharp increases in unem-
ployment, and reduced inflation, which
affects the amount of taxes the gover-
nment collects.
IN ADDITION to much larger
deficits than administration projec-

tions, the budget office forecast shows
deficits increasing each year, rather
than declining as Reagan has
Early in his presidency, Reagan had
hoped to balance the budget by 1984.
The Congressional Budget Office
projection shows a $188 billion deficit
for that year.
One of the problems, the office notes,
is that tax revenues will grow more
slowly than over the past decade
because of the huge tax cut approved
last year. Simultaneously, federal spen-
ding - mainly in social benefit
programs indexed to inflation - will
continue to outpace revenues.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A man
who "never recovered" from the
leukemia death of his young son was
shot and killed by police, yesterday
night after holding three hostages for
more than 24, hours at the hospital
where the boy was treated, officials
The hostages, two women and one
man, were released unharmed at St.
Jude Children's Research Hospital,
police said.f
JEAN CLAUDE Goulet, 40, of
Laplace, La., was killed by police gun-
fire, police director E. Winslow Chap-
man said.
Athorities had negotiated around the
clock by telephone with Goulet, 40, a
welder who armed with a .357 magnum
pistol, burst into St. Jude on Thursday
and took four people captive in a first-.
floor windowless examining room,
Chapman said.
A fourth hostage, a 64-year-old doc-
tor, was released in exchange for food a
few hours later. The three others were
identified as Dr. Paul Bowman, chief of
the hospital's leukemia service and the
favorite doctor of Goulet's son; Jean
Marie Cox, the boy's favorite nurse;
and Jo cummings, a psychologist.
prepared a tape about his views on
leukemia which he asked to have
played on Memphis radio stations.
However, after the 8-minute tape
recorded by. police was boradcast,
Goulet said he was dissatisfied with its
quality, police said.
The statement was read by Bowman,
who said, "Jean feels that research
laboratories are being built solely to
find a cure and not the cause of
leukemia... .one must find the cause
before you can find a cure.". The doctor

also said Goulet was unhappy because
his son was given experimental drugs
at Bowman's direction.
GOULET FORCED the hostages into
the small room shortly before 1:30 p.m.
Thursday. He smoked marijuana and
played poker with the hostages, with
whom he apparently had developed a
"real comradeship," said Chief Police
Inspector A. L. Williams.
Williams said the ordeal did not ap-
pear to be wearing on Goulet, whom he
described as calm, although oc-
cassinally irrational. Chapman said
the hostages' moods were ''super."
At least two of the hostages were
handcuffed, and the room had no
bathroom or running water, officials
Hospital spokesman Jerry Chipman
said Goulet's 6-year-old son, Robert
Michael, died Dec. 27, 1980, after
treatment at St. Jude. The hospital was
founded 20 years ago by entertainer
Danny Thomas, who was in telephone
contact with officials during the in-

Asbestos identified in
Union renovations

(Continued from Page 1)
remodeling situation, Irving Davis,
chief of the state's division of oc-
cupational health said yesterday.
"Dr. Walker (Director of the
Michigan Department of Public
Health) indicated this morning a.
question pertaining to the Michigan
Union and the Frieze Building," Davis
said last night. Davis said he spent the
day contacting University officials in
an attempt to understand the testing
"A CONSTRUCTION safety inspector
may be on the site next week," Davis
said. "We will prioritize the situation,"
he said, "but I'm not going to jump to
the conclusion that they (the workers)
may have been exposed to asbestos. We
will check it out."

only those that are highly suspected to
contain asbestos due to age or location.
"Typically you find it in the boiler
room or in the vicinity of a boiler. I
think a good percentage of pipe in-
sulation (contains asbestos)," Davis
said. He said that asbestos was used
primarily as a heating-pipe insulator
before definitive links between the
mineral and cancer were established
several years ago.
ACCORDING to, Davis, fibrous
materials other than asbestos which
are used in building materials and in-
sulation are considered "nuisance
material," but when circulated in the
atmosphere at low levels and with
minimal exposure are not considered
Despite the relative safety of non-
asbestos materials, "from a health
standpoint you want to decrease ex-
posure as much as possible," Davis
said, adding that chronic exposure
usually experienced by construction
workers may be toxic.
John Brockett, associate director of
Michigan Union, said that officials
from environmental health continued to
take more samples of building material
from the remodeling site yesterday and
that further construction remains at a
standstill in areas suspected of con-
taining asbestos.
Schiller Construction Company, a
Detroit-based contractor for the
Michigan.Union project, could not be
reached for comment.
