TOKYO UPI - Secretary of State
George Shultz, urging Japan to join
Washington's effort to boost defenses,
yesterday pledged the United States to
"deter aggression" throughout the
world in the face of a North Korean war
alert.
"The United States and its allies will
start no wars," Shultz told a news con-
ference on the third day of his four-day
visit to Japan. He leaves for China
today and then goes on to South Korea
and Hong Kong.
"OUR EFFORTS to build up our
defense forces are efforts to create the
capacity to deter aggression," he said.
"That is our objective."
"It applies whether we are thinking
with respect to the Soviet Union, North
Korea, what is happening in Cambodia
or throughout the world."
But North Korea, in a broadcast
monitored in Tokyo, bitterly denounced
annual U.S. and South Korean military

exercises that began Monday, charging
they were creating a situation where
"war may break out at any moment."
IN A SEPARATE broadcast, North
Korea charged South Korean forces
fired "more than 300 antiaircraft gun
shells" at a North Korean plane on
what it called routine duty near the
western border between South and Nor-
th Korea Monday.
"The entire people will get ready in
full combat gear to smash in time the
enemy's war moves and defend the
skies, land, and seas of the country and
their posts like an impregnable for-
tress," the North Korean Central news
agency said in a broadcast monitored in
Tokyo.
But in Seoul, South Korean defense
ministry spokesman Park Chong-shik
identified the North Korean plane as an
AL-28 jet bomber and said the North
Koreans distorted the incident.
PARK SAID THE bomber intruded

into South Korean airspace and was
turned back by antiaircraft ground fire.
The communist nation said it was,
putting its forces on "semi-war"
readiness, and linked the exercises to
"moves of the U.S. imperialists,
Japanese militarists and South Korean
puppet clique to complete the system of
a triangular military alliance."
Shultz said it was clear that "more
needs to be done" to fulfill Japan's self-
defined mission of "being responsible
for the defense of the air space of Japan
and for the seas around Japan."
BUT HE SAID Washington was hap-
py with the efforts to build Japan's
defenses outlined by Prime Minister
Yasuhiro Nakasone, who became
prime minister in November and, is
regarded as more militant than his
predecessors.
South Korea, like Japan, is home to
40,000 U.S. military personnel. The

North Korea, aided by Chinese
troops, battled South Koreans and allies
led by U.S. troops in a bloody 1950-53
war. Pyongyang, which has no
diplomatic ties with Tokyo or
Washington, gets aid from both China
and the Soviet Union.

Police pursue stolen
car
Police pursued a stolen car from
Ann Arbor to Ypsilanti Monday before
the car was finally stopped and its teen-
age driver arrested. The car's owner
had reported it stolen from the parking
lot of Denny's restaurant at 3310
Washtenaw Ave. some time between 10
a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday, police said.
Officers spotted the car being driven
down Platt road about 7:20 that evening
and began to chase it. The driver, a 17-
year-old Milan man, finally came to a
halt at the intersection of Elder and
Michigan Ave. in Ypsilanti.

LANSING (UPI) - Plans to evacuate
50 families living near Michigan's wor-
st toxic waste site are now uncertain
following Gov. James Blanchard's
comment yesterday that he is unsure
an evacuation or even immediate
cleanup are needed.'
Blanchard's remarks at a Flint news
conference angered residents living
near the Berlin & Faro Liquid Waste
Incineration Co. site at Swartz Creek
and left the state Department of
Natural Resources uncertain how the
project will proceed.
"NO DECISION has been made to
move anybody," Blanchard said. "I
have put everything on hold and have
done so since I was sworn in."
The department believes that up to
300 barrels containing cyanide and
hydrocholoric acid are buried beneath-
a lagoon on the 40-acre dump site. they
recommended an evacuation during
cleanup operations as a precaution
should the substances mix and form
deadly hydrogen cyanide while being
moved.
The governor's staff indicated last

week that he probably would sign the
order removing residents from their
* homes for about three weeks. Today
spokeswoman Sue Carter said yester-
day it probably will be next week before
a decision is made.
Blanchard said there are
disagreements among his advisers as
to whether an evacuation will be needed
at all and even on whether the
materials should be removed from the
site.
HE SAID no people or chemicals will
be removed "until it is absolutely
necessary."
Department spokesman Thor Strog
said the agency had believed it was
"not a matter of if, but a question of
when" Blanchard would sign the order
for the $150,000 evacuation.
He noted that the state is under court
order to remove the chemical barrels
as well as sludges containing the
suspected carcinogen C-56 this spring.
Any effort to remove the materials
must begin by about mid-February
because continued warm temperatures
make the chemical waste mot'e
volatile.
