Honda begins U.S. production
MARYSVILLE, Ohio- Honda, the Japanese-based automaker, rolled its
first American-built car off the assembly line near this central Ohio city'
It came at 8:30 a.m. with none of the hoopla associated with such an event;
no ribbon-cutting, no speech-making by state and local dignitaries; no repor-.
ters or television cameras.
Only company employees and executives-including Kiyoshi Kawashima,
Honda Motor Co. president-were on hand to watch a slate-gray Accord roll
"This is the official start -of the line," said Bonnie Shiffer of Honda of
America Mfg. Inc. She said Honda expects to produce 300 to 500 cars here in
A company statement quoted Kawashima as saying, "The most important
consideration is maintaining the quality that the American buyer has come,
to associate with Honda products which I am confident we can do."
Honda placed full-page advertisements in area newspapers to announce
the startup. The ad headline read, "Starting now. Made over here."
Salvadoran rebels destroy
bridge, burn trucks in attack
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador- Salvadoran rebels stepped up a three-
week-old offensive yesterday with the demolition of a rail bridge and the
burning of trucks, paralyzing traffic to the eastern third of the country.
Guerrillas have seized 20 villages in the lightly populated region along the
Honduran border during their "October offensive," their biggest of the year.
About 100 rebels took part in the destruction of "El Burro" rail bridge in
Tecoluca province, 36 miles southeast of San Salvador, officials said.
Residents told authorities the guerrillas set off two blasts, in pre-dawn
hours that destroyed the bridge, which was not guarded by the army. It was
the second attack on the rail line in three days.
The eastern provinces have been the biggest producers of cotton, cattle
and sugar, formerly El Salvador's largest earners of hard currency.
Guerrillas have been conducting economic warfare against the eastern
provinces to wreck the government's ability to continue functioning.
Rebels also burned seven trucks in Usulutan and San Vincente provinces.
including three state-owned energy trucks.

The current struggle of the Irish
Catholics in Northern Ireland is very
similar to the struggle of American
blacks in the 1960s, said a leader of
Ireland's civil rights movement yester-
"There is a strong affinity between
the black civil rights movement in this
country and the civil rightsmovement in
our country," said Bernadette Devlin-
McAliskey, a long-time spokesperson
for the Irish Catholics living in Nor-
THE IRISH political activists have
taken a lot of inspiration from Martin
Luther King Jr., she explained to the
more than 200 people gathered in
Rackham Ampitheater last night.
The Irish fell very close to other op-
pressed groups, she said, including the
Palestinians and the Polish. "If Lech
Walesa is interned without a trial, he is.
one of us," she said.
Devlin-Aliskey was elected to the
British parliament in 1969. She was, at
21, the youngest member of that body,
and remained in Parliament until 1974.
In 1981, she and her husband were
severely wounded by three assailants
who broke into her home in a round of
assasination attempts that claimed the
lives of several other Irish leaders.
SHE WAS even more appalled,
however, by the death of Irish children
who were shot with controversial
plastic bullets used by British army and
The sometimes lethal plastic bullet is
'designed to be shot at the legs of rioters,
she said. "It's fired at children's heads.
It's used at will by every soldier and
policeman who carries one," she said.
The bullets have been blamed for the
death of at least eleven children,
The bullets are designed and
manufactured in the United States, and
there is presently a petition drive un-

Ball Park hotdogs found safe
DETROIT- Ball Park brand hotdogs recalled from stores in six states
have been checked by sophisticated metal detectors and found safe for con-
sumers, Hygrade Food Products Inc. said.
The Southfield-based company said Sunday it found nothing wrong with
any of the recalled frankfurters and blamed consumers for sharp objects
found in some of its hot dogs last week. One woman has admitted she put a
razor blade in a hotdog herself.
"We began to be suspicious when there were three different kinds of razor
blades in the first three razor-blade complaints," said Charles Ledgerwood,
Hygrade's vice president of operations.
"After recalling Ball Park franks and finding nothing wrong, our suspicion
of consumers was confirmed when one complainant admitted lying and
another refused to take a lie test."
Pope pays homage to saint
AVILA, Spain - Pope John Paul II paid homage to St. Teresa of Avila yes-
terday at a Mass for 200,000 Spaniards and said the 16th century mystic's life
of poverty and meditation was an example for Christian women around the
"Her voice has resounded farther than the Catholic church," said the pon-
tiff in the homily of his Mass. It was celebrated in the walled city on the
Plains of Castile where the renowned Carmelite nun and church reformer,
one of the most remarkable women in the history of Christianity, was born
and founded the first of the 17 convents she established in Spain.
Later in the day, a helicopter took the pope to Alba de Tormes, 45 miles
northwest of Avila, where St. Teresa died in 1582. There beside the black
casket containing her remains, he closed the year-long celebration of the
400th anniversary of her death, which brought more than two million '
pilgrims to Avila and Alba this year.
John Paul's 10-day, 16-city tour of Spain, the first by a pope to one of the
world's most Catholic countries, was timed to coincide with the anniver-
sary, but events postponed it twice.
Supreme Court to rule on
Three Mile Island reopening
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court agreed yesterday to decide whether
"fears of recurring catastrophe" must be considered before production is
allowed to resume at the site of the nation's worst nuclear reactor accident.
A lower court said federal officials first must take into account possible
psychological harm to residents near the now-dormant Three Mile Island
facility outside Harrisburg, Pa.
The plant was the site of a March 1979 nuclear accident that stunned the
world and led to a continuing debate over federal licensing of nuclear power
In other action, the Supreme Court:
" Agreed to review claims that white police officers and firefighters in
Boston were discriminated against during a round of layoffs last year.
" Said it will decide when, if ever, military personnel can sue their superior
officers for monetary damages.
" Rejected a claim in a New Jersey case that sex education is public schools
violates religious freedoms.
