SHINGTON (UPI) - President
an, declaring "drugs are bad and
going after them," announced
rday the federal government will
h an aggressive "hot pursuit"
Y to track down dope dealers.

the first time he shared the
ophone with his wife Nancy.
be mood toward drugs is changing

us. We're making no excuses for

bad and we're going after them.
e going to win the war on drugs,"

REAGAN SAID his drug enfor-
cement plan will combine the efforts of
the nine government departments and
33 agencies with drug-related respon-
sibilities into "a planned, concerted
campaign" instead of having them
fight separate battles.
"We're undertaking a narcotics
policy that might be termedn'hot pur-
suit,' ."the president said.
The strategy, he said, will take away
the drug dealers' option of moving
operations when authorities clamp
down in one area.
"TO PARAPHRASE heavyweight
boxing champion Joe Louis, 'They can
run, but they can't hide,'" Reagan
said. "They can move, but one thing is
different now-we're going to be
waiting for them."

SAID the bottles purchased at

shipped directly from Pen-

Franklin Park, Ill., and then directly to
the stores. It was not immediately lear-
ned how Walgreen's obtained its bottle,
but Foster said, "a company like
Walgreen's would probably get their
supply directly from the manufacturer
and than dole it out to individual
stores."
Police and government officials were
trying to determine when the poison
was placed in the capsules, which ap-
peared to have been pried open, their
medication removed. Federal
authorities and company officials said
they felt the poison had been introduced
into the bottles after the product was on
store shelves in the Chicago area.
Foster said potassium cyanide is
used in chemical tests at some of Mc-
Neil's laboratories, but not in the
manufacturing process. The labs are
remote from manufacturing areas, and
cyanide would be detected even if
someone tried to introduce it during
manufacturing, he said.

statistics show most handicapped peope
have driving records as good as, if not
better, than the average driver.
"Handicapped people are more
dependent on their transportation
means, so much so that they will bend
over backwards to ensure safety,"
Juvinall said.
The most important aspect of this
project, Juvinall said, is the
"humanitarian value of enabling han-
dicapped people to be mainstreamed
into society."
THE psychological implications of
increasing personal transportation for
the severely handicapped are exten-
sive, tJuvinall said. This new system
increases their ability to come and go
as they please, and be self-sufficient
about getting into and out of the car,
both of which help increase their
general self-reliance and help reduce
their general barriers.
THE NEW car also provides the
freedom of anonymity, Juvinall said.
Because it looks like any other car, the
handicapned driver is not identified by

e

a large, cumbersome van with a bubble
roof.
Society, not only individual han-
dicapped persons, will benefit from this
new system, according to Juvinall. It
will "enable a person to take a job and
be a taxpayer instead of staying at
home and collecting government
benefits,'' he said.
Before it can go into production, a few
modifications must be made, according
to Scott Borduin, a research assistant.
Four manufacturers have already ex-
pressed interest in this system, but
Borduin said, it is "at least two years
from market."

Mastodon
investigation
(Continued from Page 1)
(10,000-20,000 years ago), or early post-
ice age, Fisher explained.
The bones recovered from Lapeer
will be put through a very long process of
analysis, of which the first step is a
thorough cleaning. After that, Fisher
said, they will be examined for any
unusual marks which, if they exist, will
be studied to determine their causes.
The age of the bones will be'determined
by a carbon-14 dating test.
Carbon-14 dating, which is effective
up to 50,000 years, uses radioactive
carbon isotope 14 in determining the
age of a fossil. Carbon-14 is present in
the tissues of living organisms, and un-
dergoes radioactive decay upon death.
The age of the organism is determined
by measuring the amount of carbon-14
left in the fossil.
FISHER WANTS to find out whether
the animal was butchered for food by
the Paleo-Indians, a group of people
who are known to have existed 11,500
years ago. He added that they may well
have been the ancestors of the North
American Indians, but not enough is
known about the Paleo-Indians to con-
clusively prove that.
Determining whether or not the
mastodon was butchered may help
scientists learn why the animals
became extinct. One theory is that the
Paleo-Indians over-hunted the animals.
FISHER pointed out, however, that a
distinction must be made between those
mastodons that were hunted and killed
by man and those just butchered for
food, after they had died.
Although reliable evidence exists that
the Paleo-Indians hunted bison, for
example, little evidence exists that they
hunted mastodons, Fisher said. "Even
though a significant number of the
mastodons we have were butchered,
how many of those were killed I don't
know."
FISHER pointed out that the theory
of a change in climate has also been
used to explain why the mastodons
became extinct. He said he does not yet
favor one theory over the other.
To try to determine whether or not
the mastodon was butchered, the bones
will be examined for marks that could
have been made by tools used by man.
"If you do have marks made by tools,
then that, at least, can be part of the
evidence that you're dealing with a but-
chering site," Fisher said.
Fisher explained that mastodons
lived in the general Great Lakes region,
although all of the excavations that he
has worked on have occurred in
Michigan.
Michigan is a good place to look for
remains of mastodons and other
animals, Fisher explained, because af-
ter the ice age melted, the state was
dotted with bogs and streams. Thus, a

California gunman kills 3
SACRAMENTO, Calif.- Police searched yesterday fo a bearded young
man who opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle and a pistol during an "end
of summer"' party at the Mother Lode bar, killing three people and wounding
nine others.
Authorities said the gunman fled on foot and possibly got into a car a short
distance from the bar. An extensive manhunt, which included a helicopter
and two dogs, was mounted for the killer.
The gunman had been asked to leave the bar earlier Friday night after a
fight, said bar owner Ron Muller. He said he had seen the man in his place
before but didn't know his name.
The man returned at about 9:15 p.m. and opened fire indiscriminately with
what police said was a handgun and a semi-automatic rifle, possibly an M-1
carbine.
A man and a woman were killed at the scene. A second woman died at a
hospital. Three of the nine wounded were reported in critical condition with
head, chest and other wounds.
Political Action Cormuittees deal
candidates over 42 million
WASHINGTON- Political action committees have made a record dole of
more than $42 million to candidates this election year, with incumbents-
particularly Republicans-grabbing a larger share than in 1980, the Federal
Election Commission reports.
Business-oriented PACs in particular have changed their giving patterns
substantially from the election season two years ago. They are using their
millions more to protect GOP incumbents than to finance candidates
challenging Democratic members of Congress.
The number and financial clout of PACs have exploded in the past decade.
Their impact can be illustrated by the contribution totals through June 30 of
each election year. In 1978, it was $10.9 million. In 1980, $24.9 million, and in
1982, $38.0 million. All the figures cover the 18 months ending in June.
PACs are organizations set up to raise money through voluntary donations
for involvement in election campaigns. They are established by businesses,
labor unions, associations and individuals who want to push a certain point
of view.
Spanish army officers arrested
for last year's coup attempt
MADRID, Spain- Three artillery officers suspected of plotting against
Spain's fragile democracy were arrested yesterday, less than four weeks
before the country's third democratic elections, the defense ministry said.
Col. Luis Munez Gutierres, Col. Jesus Crespo Cuspinera and Lt. Col. Jose
Crespo Cuspinera were arrested at their homes in Madrid by military of-
ficers and state intelligence officers, the ministry said.
The three were linked to 32 officers who mounted the most serious
challenge to restored democracy in an unsuccessful coup attempt Feb. 23,
1981, military sources said.
In that failed coup, militiamen led by Civil guard Lt. Col. Antonio Tejero
Molina held the government and nearly 350 deputies hostage in Parliament
for 17 hours, hoping to return Spain to Franco-style rule. The coup attempt
failed and Tejero was arrested.
Derailed train in Louisiana
leaving thousands homeless
LIVINGSTON, La.- At least 20 homes were damaged, some of them
severely, when a derailed tanker full of chemicals exploded in a fireball,
sending authorities back to "square one" in their fight against a 43-car
derailment, officials said yesterday.
"The damage ranges from minor to substantial. Most are on the minor end
and a few are on the substantial end," said Ronnie Jones, a state police
spokesman.
Another police spokesman, Sgt. Stephen Campbell, had said earlier that
all of the houses were severely damaged or destroyed.
"The closer we're able to get in as time goes on, the better estimate of
damage we'll be able to get you," Jones said.
The engineer of the chemical-laden freight train that derailed and set off
spectacular explosions all week had been drinking and was going too fast
when the accident occurred, the National Transportation Safety Board said
yesterday.
The first explosion came at 5 a.m. Tuesday shortly after the train pulled
into, this small town. The fourth, and strongest, blast came Friday in a
tanker filled with vinyl chloride, sending an orange-white fireball high into
the sky.
There were no reported injuries, but about 2,700 residents of Livingston
remained away from their homes yesterday.
Father kills 2 kids, then self
NAPLES, Texas- An 8-year-old boy died yesterday the day after his step-
father shot and killed his brother before committing suicide, officials said.
Travis Abraham died yesterday after he and his brothers-Frederick
Abraham, 5; Albert Henderson, 3, and Tyrone Abraham, 6-were shot
Friday night by Geary Henderson, 26, an unemployed steelworker, who later
killed himself, said Naples Police Chief Loyd Martin.

Henderson and the 5-year-old died Friday, officials said.
The other two youngsters were in serious condition yesterday at Wadley
Regional Medical Center in Texarkana, said head nursing supervisor
Stewart Powers.
Henderson was the father of Albert and the stepfather of the other three
children, Martin said.
