Tylenol possibly doctored
long before reaching stores
CHICAGO- The Cook County medical examiner said yesterday tests in-
dicate cyanide-loaded Tylenol capsules that killed seven people could have
been doctored at their distribution point or at the plant where they were
Stein, who last week raised the possibility the cyanide had been placed in
the capsules at the Fort Washington, Pa., plant where Extra-Strength
Tylenol is manufactured, said he has completed tests that indicate the
poison could have been placed in the capsules in the warehouse or
distribution point or even back at the manufacturing point.
Stein criticized investigators for concentrating their search on a "mad-
man," saying the killer strikes him as more of a "rational evildoer."
In another twist, police were trying to determine if there is a link in the
death of a Sheridan, Wyoming man who may have taken Tylenol capsules
handled by the same distribution warehouse as those that killed the Chicago
Seven Chicago area residents died Sept. 29 and 30 after swallowing Extra-
Strength Tylenol capsules that had been emptied of pain-reliever and
refilled with deadly cyanide.

of a shooting on the Amtrak Silver Star. The sleeper car where the gunman

Fed won't force interest
rates lower, Volcker says
HOT SPRINGS, Va.- Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker declared
yesterday that the nation's central bank is sticking with its iiflation-
fighting, tight-money policy rather than trying to force interest rates down
to triger a long-awaited economic recovery.
Vole er denied recent reports that the ank, in a major policy shift, is
backing away from its tough anti-inflationary stance because of growing
alarm about a deteriorating economy and surging unemployment.
The belief within the financial community that the Fed is relaxing its
monetary policy was bolstered Friday, when the central bank lowered its
"discount" lending rate to financial institutions from 10 percent to 9.5 per-
cent, the lowest level in more than three years. It was the fifth drop in that
rate since July, when the bank was charging 12 percent.
Volcker said interest rates have fallen significantly since the summer
because of weak loan demand caused by the recession and the central bank's
success in lowering inflation.
Reagan's approval rating
at new low, poll says
NEW YORK- Only 41 percent of the American people now approve of
Ronald Reagan's handling of the presidency-his lowest rating to date-
and 57 percent plan to vote Democratic in congressional races, a Newsweek
The poll targeted Reagan's handling of the economy as the reason for his
decline in popularity and weak rating-the lowest midterm rating of any of
the nation's five past elected presidents.
A majority of those questioned were pessimistic about Reagan's economic
policies. Fifty-four percent said they believed Reaganomics would worsen
their personal economic situations while only a third said they believed their
situation would improve under Reagan.
Soviet spy plane tries to
contact trapped submarine
BERGA NAVAL BASE, Sweden- A Soviet's spy plane is criss-crossing
the Baltic trying to make contact with a submarine trapped near Stockholm,
and the Swedes have set up a jamming station to prevent communication
between the two, informed sources said yesterday.
The sources, who requested anonymity, said the spy plane was an
Ilyushin-38, and that it has displayed "unusual interest" in the Hors Bay
area near the top secret Musko naval base, where the intruder was first
sighted Oct. 1.
Lt. Col. Jan Ake Berg of the Swedish Defense Staff declined to comment on
the report, saying only: "We are continuing as before. We receive many tips
from the public and are following up some of them." He refused to give
details of the search tactics.
During the first week of the search, patrol boats and helicopters dropped
more than 30 depth charges, some containing 220 pounds of TNT, around the
sub in an attempt to force it to surface.
The Soviet news agency Tass has denied that any submarine in Hors Bay
is Soviet. The United States and other NATO countries with subs in the Baltic
Sea have denied their subs are involved.
