WVASHINGTON - Divers plunged in-
to the frozen Potomac yesterday, sear-
ching for 85 bodies from a crumpled
jetliner which investigators suspect
was heavy with ice when it fell on a
bridge loaded with rush-hour motorists.
The fuselage of the Boeing 737 lay a
mere 20 feet from the river bank and 25
feet from the surface, but it proved
tragically difficult to bring up.
THE PRESUMED death toll for the
crash stood at 78 yesterday, as Air For-
ce Lt. Michael Saunders died in the af-
ternoon of injuries suffered when his
car was struck by the plane on Wed-
nesday. Two other motorists were
killed. While the bodies of only nine
people have been recovered from the
plane, there are only five known sur-.
vivors among 79 said to have been
Investigators focused on how ready
the Air Florida plane was to take off in
subfreezing weather - how long it stood
on the runway, whether it was properly
de-iced arid what caused it to slam into
the 14th Street Bridge within seconds of
liftoff from National Airport.
Chief investigator Francis McAdams
said it could take from three days to as
long as two weeks to raise the 100,000
pound fuselage, but officials said they
hoped to quickly find two on board
recorders that might provide clues to
the cause of the crash. .
THE FROZEN bodies of an infant
and a woman were pulled by boat crews
from the river early yesterday. Four
passengers and a stewardess, the only
known survivors, remained
Four men in cars on the bridge were
killed and three other commuters were
seriously injured in the first fatal U.S.
airline accident since Oct. 31, 1979 when
a Western airlines plane crashed in
At the crash site, 20 feet from the
Virginia bank of the river and a mere
three-quarters of a mile from the run-
way at National Airport, four divers
leaped into the river to check the con-
dition of the plane's hulk, look for flight
recorders and to make sketches which
will help determine how it can be
The river is about 25 feet deep at the
point where it went down. Amid ice
chunks, recovery crews in orange

Gov. seeks building funds
(Continued rom PageU )
"Without new revenues, there will be no
way to provide new money," he said-.
The governor made no mention of
new funds for University operations.
"We must proceed cautiously, but with
thoughtful determination, to assure an
orderly transition from an era of
growth to one of retrenchment," he
THE GOVERNOR also endorsed a
constitutional amendment providing
for appointed governing boards at the
state's three major universities-the
University of Michigan, Wayne State
University, and Michigan State Univer-
sity. Milliken has long been a proponent
of the appsointment system.
Regent Sarah Power (D-Ann Arbor)
said she is opposed to the amendment.
''The tax-paying citizens care enor-
mously and value very highly this op-
portunity to vote for these persons,"'
Dunn echoed Power's views. "Being
an elected official, I'm in favor of elec-
tions," he said. "You're more respon-
sible to the citizens if you're elected
rather than appointed."'

JERUSALEM- Secretary of State Alexander Haig and Israeli Prime
Minister Menachem Begin discussed Palestinian autonomy for more than
two hours yesterday but avoided other issues that have strained U.S. -Israeli
Both Israeli and Egyptian officials said yesterday that Haig is pressing
them to work out an agreement on Palestinian autonomy before Israel's
withdrawal from the Sinai on A pril 25.
On whether Jerusalem Arabs could vote for the autonomous bodies he got
a flat "no" from Israeli Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir, who said Israel
regards the Arab sector of the city as Israel's sovereign territory outside the
area to become self-governing, Israeli media reports said.

LANSING- Gov. William Milliken, throwing a surprise into his State of
the State address yesterday, said he has been told the Swedish-based Volvo
Motors Inc. will open a factory in Michigan-reportedly in Sterling Heights.
Milliken said he received information Tuesday that Volvo "soon would an-
nounce plans to build a plant related to robotics in Myichigan."
Aides to Milliken said Volvo pians to begin in the near future with an
engineering and marketing operation for industrial machinery in Sterling
Heights, but will eventually expand to include manufacturing.
After three years, they said, the operation is expected to provide about 300
jobs in the area.
Clifford Anglewicz, who has been hired to represent Volvo here, said the
firm has decided to locate a plant making manufacturing equipment in
Michigan and is looking "very seriously" at Sterling Heights, although
nothing has been signed. He said details will be worked out in the next two
ERA may get reprieve
WASHINGTON- The Reagan administration suggested yesterday that
the Supreme Court consider wiping out on technical grounds a ruling that
throws a legal cloud over a final push to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment.
Meanwhile, Justice Department lawyers did not give up their previously
stated opposition to quick Supreme Court review of the substance of the

March 22, 1979, and that five state legislatures could validly rescind previous
Ford to make counter offer
to UAW on contracts
-DETROIT- Ford Motor Co. bargainers said yesterday they will make a
counter offer to a United Auto Workers proposal linking car prie cuts to
Earlier in the day it had been reported Ford would go along with the plan,
which was adopted Tuesday by General Motors Corp.
Wage cuts have not been ruled out of the negotiations, although UAW
President Douglas Fraser has said he will not go along with any cuts in pay.
Meanwhile, Ford Motor Co.'s board of directors voted yesterday not to pay
a first-quarter dividend for the first time since the company went public in
1956, citing the uncertain future of the entire industry.
Ford Chairman Philip Caldwell said the No. 2 automaker in 1982 intends
spending a billion dollars more in worldwide capital expenditures than it did
in 1981 and plans to introduce six new passenger car lines and two new small
truck lines over the next 15 months.
