Bush asks Soviets to take
giant step toward peace
ROME - Vice President George Bush said yesterday that NATO allies
firmly support Washington's negotiating stance at the Geneva arms talks
and called on Moscow to "take a giant step for peace" by agreeing to ban all
medium-range nuclear weapons in Europe.
Bush made the appeal after meetings with Pope John Paul II and Italian
leaders as part of a seven-nation European tour to gain support for President -
Reagan's disarmament strategy.
"President Reagan and the NATO leaders have asked the Soviet leader-
ship to act boldly and responsibly by banishing once and forever from the
face of the earth the land-based intermediate-range nuclear missiles it has.
aimed at the heart of Europe in return for the cancellation of the missiles
NATO will begin to deploy this year," Bush said.
Moscow has offered to reduce its missile deployment to 162, the number
now deployed independently by Britain and France.

Satellite fuel core hits Earth
WASHINGTON - The months-long saga of a derelict
Soviet satellite came to a fiery finish yesterday
when its nuclear core and fuel vaporized in the atmosphere over a remote
area of the South Atlantic, the Pentagon said.
The third and final chunk of satellite, weighing up to an estimated 1,000
pounds, was incinerated by the time it reached a point about 1,100 miles east
of Brazil, officials said, relaying information from space trackers at the
North American Aerospace Defense Command.
"We assume it has re-entered the atmosphere and burned harmlessly," a
Pentagon spokesman said.
Although the chances were minimal that fuel would land on the North..
American continent, U.S. search teams totaling 200 people stood by until the
satellite disappeared off tracking screens. It was the second alert in three
weeks for a Las Vegas-based team of nuclear scientists.
Mideast truce quickly violated
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Christian and Druse militias signed an Israeli-spons-
ored peace pact yesterday, but artillery and rocket barrages were reported in -
the central mountains overlooking Beirut as soon as night fell.
Lebanon, meanwhile, accused Isreal of setting "imposible conditions" for
withdrawal of its troops from Lebanon.
State television said Christian and Druse militiamen pounded each other
with artillery and multiple rocket launchers in the towns of Souk al-Gharb
and Aitat, three to four miles south of Aley.
Brig. Gen. Amnon Lifkin, commanding officer of the Israeli army in cen-
tral Lebanon, told a news conference earlier in the day that the peace accord
convered the Aley and Chouf Mountain regions.
He said Israeli forces undertook to police the cease-fire and "react"
against violators in the mountains, where battles have claimed more than
170 lives in two months.
Iran launches 'Final Offensive'
NICOSIA, Cyprus - Iran launched its "final offensive" against Iraq be-
fore dawn yesterday, hurling tens of thousands of troops across the border in
its biggest drive yet., The Iranians claimed to have recaptured 100 square
miles of territory lost earlier in Iraq.
Iraq confirmed the offensive, but said it completely crushed two Iranian
divisions that crossed into Iraq at Fakeh, about 180 miles southeast of Bagh-
dad and 100 miles North of Basrax. The aim of the offensive appeared to be to,
cut the Baghdad-Basra highway taking Al-Amara, 40 miles west of Fakeh.
Iraq said its forces killed 6,894 Iranians and took large number of
prisoners. Baghdad communiques clainied Iraqi warplanes and
helicopter gunships flew 129 missions, "securing coniplete control of the
skies over the battlefront, inflicting very heavy losses on enemy tanks and
armor, and returning safely to their bases."
Iraqi leaders said recently that Iran had massed 150,000 troops in the
southern sector of the 300-mile-long front line in preparation for the offen-
sive. But the Saudi newspaper A-Madina said Saturday as many as one
million Iranian troops had been deployed to invade Iraq's southern Missan
Foreign reporters have seldom been allowed to visit the war front since
Iraq invaded Iran more than two years ago, and there was no way to check
the conflicting claims. Iran named its offensive "Val Fajr," Persian for
Mount St. Helens erupts
VANCOUVER, Wash - Mount St. Helens erupted again yesterday,
building a new mound of lava on the 700-foot high dome in the volcano's
There were no reports of explosions, mudflows or ash. Officials said they
did not know when the eruption began.
The eruption was confirmed at about noon yesterday by geologists who
flew over the southwest Washington volcano, said Thom Corcoran of the U.S.
Corcoran said a geologist in a fixed-wing plane saw a new lobe of lava
growing on the east side of the dome, but that ground crews had yet to con-
On Saturday, the U.S. geological Survey and the University of Washington
warned that movement within the crater and gas emissions indicated that
Mount St. Helens would erupt within two weeks.
They said an eruption must be accompanied by explosive activity, rapid
snow melt and mudflows that could cascade into Spirit Lake and the Toutle
