Up to 65
die in D. C.
WASHINGTON (AP)- A Florida-bound Boeing 737 with 79
ple aboard roared from a snowy takeoff and crashed into
a Potomac River bridge yesterday, smashing automobiles
and plunging into the icy water. Most of the passengers and
several motorists were killed, authorities said.
A spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, Ted*
Marr, said an unofficial estimate "would be 65 dead." Hours
after the crash, only 17 people had been admitted to hospitals
and rescue efforts were suspended in the freezing night.
THE JETLINER was an Air Florida flight bound from
Washington National Airport to Tampa and Fort Lauderdale,
Fla. The airline said 79 people were aboard, including three
ants and a crew of five.
Lt. Hiram Brewton, a District of Columbia police
spokesman, said there were believed to be only five survivors
from the plane. Sam Jordan, head of the Mayor's Command
Center, said an attempt would be made to raise the broken
craft from the water at daybreak.
Police Capt. Michael Canfield said at least six motorists
were killed as the plane sheared the tops of cars and hit a
AT LEAST 17 survivors were taken to Washington
hospitals, some suffering crash injuries, some the affects of
the frigid river water.
Stewardess Kelly Dunan survived the crash. "The plane
started to shake and the next thing I knew, I was in the
water," she told the doctor who treated her for hypothermia,
a severe loss of body heat.
Even as ambulances and rescue crews struggled through
the snow-and the massive traffic jam it produced-to the
bridge, three people were killed when a Washington subway
car hurtled from its track near the Siithsonian Institution

by floodlight in the ice-crusted river, searching for the vic-
Within minutes after the crash, helicopters pulled several
survivors from the river. Presumably, most of the others
aboard the plane perished under the ice.
It was not known how many of the 17 hospitalized survivors
were from the plane or vehicles struck on the bridge, a

Rejecting an ultimatum from the
Michigan Union to sign a new lease or
move out by March 1st, the University
Cellar Board of Directors last night
began preparing plans to move to a new
site near the University.
"We will begin negotiations with the
new site full speed ahead," said Mary
Anne Caballero, chairperson of the
Cellar's Board of Directors. Board
members, however, would not disclose
where the new location would be. Board
members said they will meet with the
site owner today to discuss plans for
According to Caballero, the board
decided it could best serve students if it
moved to a new site because the lease
offered by the Union would have forced
the store to drive up its prices.
Last night, board directors refused to
accept a lease outlined by Union Direc-
tor Frank Cianciola that either would
have required the U-Cellar to accept a
month-to-month lease or a long-term
Cianciola said that if the U-Cellar did
not sign a lease by today, the store
would have to vacate the Union by
Although the U-Cellar is making
preparations to move, board members
said they are still interested in
negotiating with the Union on a month-
to-month lease that would be feasible to
"We would like to remain here on a
month-to-month basis," Caballero said.
"We just need to negotiate the fine poin-
ts with him."
Cianciola declined from making ex-
tensive comments on the board's action
until he receives official word from the
board this morning.
"The. Cellar has had a long-standing
commitment to follow through on their
involvement with the renovation
project," Cianciola said. "Essentially
we tried to make every accommodation
we felt was possible."
Cianciola said the deadline for
signing the lease had to be set to keep
the renovation project on schedule.
Physical re-construction of the Union is
to begin within the next few days, he
U-Cellar directors decided to attempt
further negotiation on the month-to-

WASHINGTON - The supreme
Court yesterday gave police officers
more power to conduct searches
In reinstating a drug possession con-
viction stemming from a 1978 incident
on the Washington State University
campus, the court created a new excep-
tion to the rule that police must first get
a warrant before searching someone's
THE JUSTICES, by 6-3, struck down,
a Washington Supreme Court decision
that would have made a new trial
necessary for Neil Chrisman, who was
convicted for possession of marijuana
and LSD found in his Washington State
Unless an emergency exists, police
who spot evidence of a crime inside a
person's home cannot enter and seach
the home without a warrant. Yester-.
day's ruling adds a post-arrest excep-
tion to that rule.
A university police officer saw
Chrisman's roommate, Carl Overdahl,
leave the dorm carrying a half-gallon
bottle of gin the night of Jan. 21, 1978.
THE OFFICER stopped Overdahl
and asked for identificatiion, at which
point Overdahl was considered legally
under arrest. The student was accom-
panied by the officer to his 11th-floor
room to get some proof of his age.
As the officer stood at the room's
doorway, he saw seeds and a pipe he
thought might be evidence of
marijuana. He entered the room for
verification and, after getting per-
mission from Overdahl and Chrisman,
conducted a search that turned up the

marijuana and LSD.
Chrisman's conviction was thrown
out by the state Supreme Court when
the officer's search was ruled to be a
violation of the Constitution's Fourth
Amendment, which bans unreasonable
searches by police.
IN ANOTHER case, the Supreme
Court, declaring its job is not to decide
"hypothetical issues," yesterday threw
out a major free speech controversy
over the power of private colleges to
bar non-student political activity on
By an 8-0 vote the court dismissed the
case, leaving intact a New Jersey state
court decision that Princeton Unvier-
sity erred by kicking off its campus a
U.S. Labor Party member who was
distributing campaign literature.
The justices, in an unsigned order,
said they, dismissed the case because
Princeton has changed its regultions on
non-students political activity on cam-
pus since the original suit was filed.

Grapes of wrath
The anger of local winemakers trying to put a cork on the
use of their names has turned from sour grapes to wrath.
Drytown is in California's Shenandoah Valley, where the
$15 million-a-year industry boasts 50 wineries and is
fighting to retain "Shenandoah Valley" as its exclusive title
on labels. But commercial grapevines have taken root now
in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, and winemakers there
want to use the name, too. California's century-old industry

smoking suit. Lynn Bernard, 34, is suing her former em-
ployer for $55,000 in damages and back pay because her
colleagues were allowed to puff away on cigarettes. The
suit was filed in Suffolk Superior Court Monday, the 18th
anniversary of the U.S. surgeon general's report linking
cigarette smoking to lung disease. Bernard says she was
forced to leave her word processing job with Cameron and
Colby last March when she was transferred to an area
where cigarette smoking was allowed. The suit says her
allergist told Bernard the exposure to second-hand tobacco
smoke could cause "Significant damage to her lungs." It
