Cruise missiles ready for action

Force announced yesterday the first
squadron of B-52G bombers equipped
with 12 nuclear-tipped cruise missiles
will go on daily alert status beginning
next week, ushering in a new era of
strategic atomic weaponry.
The air-launched cruise missile is the
first. weapon of its kind to become
operational in the U.S. armed forces,
with the sea and land-based versions
still undergoing testing.
THE AIR Force announcement of the
milestone program, begun by the Car-
ter administration, coincided with the
defeat of a proposal before Congress to
approve production of the MX missile
- the newest and most lethal planned
addition to the land-based arsenal of
strategic nuclear weapons.

The first squadron of specially
modified B-52G bombers, with each of
its 16 aircraft carrying 12 cruise
missiles suspended beneath its wings,
will go on alert status at Griffiss Air
Force Base, near Rome, N.Y., about
Dec. 16, the announcement said.
The nuclear warhead aboard the
missile packs about 300 kilotons of ex-
plosives, or the equivalent of 300,000
tons of TNT, according to the
authoritative International Institute for
Strategic Studies in London.
BY COMPARISON, eaeh of the 10 MX
warheads is about 350 kilotons and the
bomb dropped on Hiroshima was the
equivalent of about 20,000 tons of TNT.
The Air Force tinretable for
deployment of the first cruise-equipped

squadron is right on schedule. The first
B-52G to carry the cruise, built by the
Boeing Aerospace Co., of Seattle,
Wash., became operational at Griffiss
in September 1981.'
The cruise missile is a jet-powered
flying torpedo that can be fitted with a
nuclear or a conventional warhead. Its
small size and terrain-hugging charac-
teristics make it difficult to detect,
posing a deadly new dimension to the
air defenses of theSoviet Union.
THE AIR-launched version has a
range of 1,500 miles, which means the
lumbering eight-engine B-52Gs can
remain that far away from their targets
before firing the missile, avoiding the
Soviet Union's air defense missile

But the Soviets reportedly are
developing a counter to the cruise
missile - the SA-10 - that may be
deployed between now and the mid-
1980s. The London institute said the
Pentagon estimates the Soviets would
need between 500 and 1,000 SA-10 sites
to counteract the cruise missile at a
cost equivalent to $50 billion.
Cruise missiles can be launched from
aircraft, ships, submarines and mobile
ground stations. The Navy's
Tomahawk missile shortly will be fitted
to the battleship New Jersey and the
Air Force plans to deploy its ground
version in Western Europe beginning in
December 1983.

Executed man may have been innocent

to be executed by injection.
Prison spokesman Rick Hartley'said
Brooks was given one syringe of sodium
thiopental, two of pavulon and nearly
two of potassium chloride. He said
sodium thiopental, a medical
anesthetic in normal dosage, arrested
breathing and suppressed pain;
pavulon relaxed muscles, and
potassium chloride stopped the in-
mate's heart.
In his last words Brooks, a convert to
Islam, commended his soul to Allah and
urged his girlfriend at his side to "be

still when the injection began, then

later a prison doctor pronounced him
At Austin, Gov.-elect Mark White
disputed claims by the Texas Civil
Liberties Union that the execution was
politically motivated and death penalty
cases had been pushed ahead for cam-
paign purposes.
'I think every case is going to be han-
dled on an individual basis," White
said. "I don't think courts are going to
be changing their positions or time for
deliberations on any of these cases."

Artificial heart recipient
suffers ominous seizures
SALT LAKE CITY- Artificial-heart recipient Barney Clark suffered a
series of seizures yesterday "which could have ominous significance,"
prompting doctors to put him back on a respirator and downgrade his con-
dition to critical.
Doctors said they hoped the seizures stemmed from a correctable
chemical imbalance, and not from either of two other possibilities-a hem-
morrhage or blood clot in the brain. The artificial heart was functioning
normally and the pump itself probably was unrelated to the seizures, doctors
The seizures early on the sixth day of Clark's life with the permanent
plastic device lasted from one to two hours before they were controlled by
sedatives, said Dr. Chase Peterson, vice president for health services at the
University of Utah.
"We are concerned that Dr. Clark has had a complication, the significance
of which could be ominous, but is not yet clear," Peterson told a news con-
ference five hours after the early-morning seizures.
Salvadoran rebels free 200
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador- Leftist guerrillas yesterday began
releasing an estimated 200 men, women and children who were kidnapped
from a soccer field in San Sebastian and forced to attend a rebel indoc-
trination session, authorities said.
The town's mayor and the other officials said the rebels wanted to recruit
the captives, but one of 21 people who escaped from the guerrillas said the
rebels never asked them to join the guerrilla ranks.
Just after dawn the rebels freed 17 people-eight women and nine young
men-at a clearing in the shrub-covered hills a mile east of San Sebastian,
where guerrillas seized two 20-man soccer teams and the rest of the captives
"They walked all night from a place called Oregano," said a national
guard commander in San Sebastian. "According to their reports, they were
indoctrinated there by 50 guerrillas."
Spy gets 10-year prison term
LONDON- Soviet spy Hugh Hambleton was sentenced to 10 years in
prison yesterday after he dropped the claim he was a double agent and ad-
mitted he slipped the KGB top-secret NATO documents 25 years ago.
The 60-year-old Canadian economics professor stood impassively in Old
Bailey Central Criminal Court, listening quietly as the judge pronounced
"It was a long time ago that you committed these acts, but they catch up
with you in the end," Judge Sir David Croom-Johnson told the thick-set,
gray-haired spy.
Hambleton, a dual British and Canadian national, had pleaded innocent
when his trial began seven days ago.
But yesterday, crumbling under three hours of intense cross-examination
by Attorney General Sir Michael Havers, he admitted that between 1965 and
1961 he photographed and passed to Kremlin agents in Paris thousands of
NATO documents-without the knowledge of any Western official.
Irish terrorists claim credit
for bomb which killed 16
BALLYKELLY, Northern Ireland- Left-wing Irish nationalist terrorists
yesterday admitted they set Monday's bomb blast which killed 16 people and
injured 66 more in a discotheque crowded with British soldiers and local
"While the loss of life was regrettable, people had been warned of the
danger of associating with the security forces," said a statement by the
South Derry Brigade of the Irish National Liberation Army.
In London, an outraged Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher called the
bombing "one of the most horrific crimes in Ulster's tragic history," and
said the British government "won't rest until these merciless killers are
brought to justice."
Police and army spokesmen said the dead included 11 British soldiers and
five civilians, four of them women. Some of the victims of the blast lost arms
and legs in the crushing debris, and at least 40 of the injured were admitted
to hospitals.
Northern Ireland Secretary James Prior, who visited victims of the latest
blast at a local hospital and toured the devastated Droppin Well pub where
the explosion occurred, told reporters: "It was a massacre without mercy."
Flood death toll rises to 20
Devastating floods that have driven 26,000 people from their homes in the
Mississippi Valley surged downstream yesterday as National Guardsmen
and volunteers bustled to shore up river levees.
Damage estimates from the flooding touched off by storms in the region
late last week approached the half-billion dollar mark. At least 20 people had
been killed by tornadoes and floods and four were missing.
About 20,000 residents remained in evacuation shelters yesterday in
Missouri as rivers swollen by storms last week crested at levels reached
only about once every hundred years, officials said.
National Guardsmen patrolled the St. Louis suburbs of Arnold, Times
Beach and St. Charles to guard against looting.
More evacuations were ordered in Arkansas.

Illinois Gov. James R. Thompson declared six counties-mainly in the
northern part of the state-disaster areas Tuesday and warned that "the
worst is not over."
Missouri Gov. Christopher Bonds, estimating damage in his state at $15
million, said he would ask President Reagan for federal assistance to 22
counties declared disaster areas.

update present policies which were im-
plemented in 1973. Members of, the
committee emphasized, however, that
since introduction of the code, the rules
have not been followed.
"We have a judiciary system and a
code of conduct that is not working,"
said Mark Greenleaf, a student mem-
ber of the University council.
Greenleaf cited examples of breaking
and entering, assault, larceny, indecent
exposure, and malicious destruction of
property which have occurred with the
University unable to take any internal
action. "As long as they are a duly ad-
mitted student he can not be arrested
for trespassing," said Virginia Nordby,
policy advisor to Vice President for
Academic Affairs Billy Frye.

Attending the Rose Bowl?

Nordby cited the case of the student
arrested for repeated arson who was
released by Ann Arbor Police on bail.
"A psychologist told us that his
problem was with the University, and
yet the University could not take any
measures to protect itself," Nordby
told the assembly.
THE PROPOSED new code would set
punishments for abuses ranging from
cruelty to animals to alteration of
University documents. Sanctions
which could be taken against students
found guilty include expulsion, suspen-
sion, probabation, or a simple
reprimand. Restitution could also be
required for any damages imposed.
Nordby and University Policy
Analyst Dan Sharphorn said they had
come before the student assembly more
for input than for an endorsement and
were satisfied with the suggestions
which came up. "In spite of the vigor
with which the points were made, I
think we can take some of the points in-
to the revision process," said Nordby.
Reaction by assembly menbers
varied considerably. Jack Austin, a
representative of the School of Ar-
chitecture, said although he supported
the gist of the proposal, he was concer-
ned about its limitations. "I just think
that some of this could be carried away
with," he said.
OTHER assembly members, such as
Engineering representative Steve
Mueller, were concerned about the har-
shness of the measures. "Let's face it,"
he said, "we're in a University, mose of
us are young and we do some of the
things (prohibited conduct) for fun."
Mueller did support the proposal's in-
tention, however, saying, "It just gets
rid of some of the scum on campus."
