MAMMOTH LAKES, Calif. (AP) -
Hundreds of earthquakes rumbled for a
second day yesterday through this
Sierra Nevada ski resort, which since
May has been under official notice of
"potential volcanic hazard."
Geologists stressed they haven't
determined whether the earthquakes
were associated with underground
MORE THAN 1,000 earthquakes were
recorded in the first 12 hours of the
swarm that began Thursday afternoon,
including two strong tremors that
caused minor damage, geologists said.
Groceries fell from shelves, power
outages were triggered ano an
aluminum airport hangar collapsed.
Roy Bailey, chief of the U.S.
Geological Survey's Volcanic Hazards
Program, said the activity was "the
most dramatic event we've had since
No injuries were reported, but the
largest of the quakes panicked
restaurant patrons and prompted some
hotel and ski resort guests to leave the
area, which is 200 miles east of San
Francisco and 250° miles north of Los
WHILE SEVERAL resorts said they
received numerous calls yesterday
from potential tourists concerned about
the quakes, they said they expected
normal business during the weekend.
"I don't think people are too
worried," said Julia Fitzpatrick,
manager of the Mammoth Lakes
Chamber of Commerce. "People who
have lived here for any time are used to
feeling small tremors.''
Scientists said they don't know just
what the current quake activity means

WASHINGTON (UPI) - The White
House, reacting to "gloom and doom"
news reports, predicted yesterday the
long-awaited economic recovery will
begin in the second half of the year.
But the effects of the recession,
especially the high unemployment rate,
will continue at least through the first
three months of the year, according to
the economic growth forecasts to be
contained in the 1984 Reagan budget.
"WE EXPECT this third and fourth
quarter - the latter half of 1983 - to begin
the recovery and the period of
sustained growth that we anticipate
through the end of the forecasting
period," deputy press secretary Larry
Speakes told reporters.
Administration officials previously
estimated, during testimony to
congressional committees on the 1983
budget last year, the economic
recovery would begin in the spring of
1982, then the summer, and finally the
Speakes said certain segments of the
economy - such as housing starts and
interest rates - already are making "a
strong recovery" and the improvemen-
ts were "unprecedented" in some
THE COMMENTS came in reaction
to what Speakes called "gloom and
doom" news reports Reagan was an-
ticipating only a 1.4 percent growth rate.,
in the gross national product this year.
Higher GNP growth means higher
employment and tax revenue for the;
government and lower budget deficits.
Speakes said the budget, which
Reagan will submit to Congress Jan. 31,.
will project a 1 percent increase in the,
GNP for the first three months of 1983, a.
3 percent increase in the second quar-
ter, and 4 percent hike in both the third
and fourth quarters.
Speakes said that would average a 3
percent increase in the GNP for the,
year, and therefore the pessimistic
news reports "did not reflect the strong,
surge in the latter quarters."
A year ago, the administration,
predicted a 5.2 percent increase for,
1982, but a budget office official said,
Friday the rate would actually turn out
to be a minus 1.2 percent average.

and how much the student can be
charged for the copying.
"It's not exactly clear to me what the
copyright law says," said one of several
professors who fear the court case may
make it impractical to use cour-
sepacks. "I would do things quite a bit
differently without a coursepack. My
course would suffer," he said.
Other professors worry that if
copying laws become more stringent,
students will be forced to buy expensive
books instead of cheap coursepacks.
"BOOKS ARE so expensive these
days that (buying books) is prohibitive.
One has very great difficultytordering
books for courses because this is a
tremendous financial strain on studen-
ts," said Political Science Prof.
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - The 1983
list of the Ten Dullest Americans in-
cludes former President Gerald Ford,
entertainer Lawrence Welk and Phyllis
Schlafly, a leading opponent of the
Equal Rights Amendment.
Others on the list selected by the In-
ternational Dull Men's Club are
children's television host Fred "Mister
Rogers" Rogers, comedian Don
Rickles, former Vice President Walter
Mondale, and Harry Gray, board
chairman of United Technologies Corp.
Rounding out the list were Sen. John
Glenn (D-Ohio), the National Football
League Players' Association and Gar-
field the cartoon cat.

Coursepacks are also useful for cour-
ses using material from "ignored
areas such asnative American
literature, according to English Prof.
Lemuel Johnson, who needs such
materials to teach his courses.
Allan Wittman, copyright committee
chairman for the Association of
American Publishers-which is
backing the nine publishers-said that
"nothing in what the publishers are
doing is designed to restrict copying,"
and added that the publishers simply
want to collect the royalties for use of
"COPY SHOPS all over the country
will copy wholesale material which
belongs to someone else," Wittman
said. "Nobody bothers to reimburse the

Of Don Rickles, Stewart asked, "How
many times can you call someone a
hockey puck?" As for Fred Rogers,
"Even kids sometimes find. him
boring," Stewart said.
Glenn was noted as the dull person
most likely to become president. Gar-
field made the list as "the laid-back cat

Stewart said former President Carter
and lame-duck baseball Commissioner
Bowie Kuhn almost made the list.
While Wittman maintains that
universities, professors, and copying
shops are equally liable for the misuse
of material included in coursepacks,
local copying shop owners take on
varying degrees of responsibility.
"I can't possibly screen everything. I
am an impartial intermediary," Zaret
said, placing the responsibility for
compliance with the laws on the
professor who selects the materials.
Other copy shops are more careful
about copyright laws. "If it's halfway
questionable, I don't do it," said Ralph
