Residents of the 50-home Royal Gardens housing development in Hawaii
were threatened yesterday as a furiously erupting Kilauea Volcano made its
way toward their homes. Two houses were buried by the 30-foot-high and 50-
foot-wide lava flow.

Analysts blamed poor weather on both coasts for the monthly domesti
decline, plus consumer disinterest in the 11.9 percent financing rates being
offered on new cars and trucks.
The five American firms said they sold 441,226 cars in February, down 34 '
percent from 456,942 in February 1982. This was the first monthly saei"-
decline since September.
The annual selling rate in February was 6 million cars compared to 6.31,
million in the month last year.
Pope blasts Guatemala for
execution of six terrorists
SAN JOSE, Costa Rica - The Vatican said yesterday the execution of s'
convicted terrorists in Guatemala was "incredible" and warned of "possib
serious repercussions at the world and national level." Pope .John Paul
had tried to prevent the executions.
A communique issued by the Vatican press office hours after t
executions did not specify what the repercussions would be. In the pas

It was an unusual step by the Vatican to issue such a strong statemen
which came on the first full day of the pope's nine-day Central America
tour. During past trips, the Vatican has expressed regrets for accidents that
occur during crowd tramplings or terrorist killings.
Manhole fire blacks out Boston
BOSTON - New England's financial hub was virtually paralyzed for a
second straight day yesterday because a flash fire in a manhole snapped off
electricity to downtown Boston's high-rise banks and businesses.
Thousands of workers at brokerage houses, mutual funds, law firms, and
banks, including the Federal Reserve Bank's regional headquarters, were
given the day off.
Meanwhile, 100 utility workers stretched power cables above ground
around the ruined manhole yesterday, trying to restore the power that was
cut off Wednesday afternoon when the underground fire near Post Office
Square cut seven power cables.
Yesterday morning, knots of office workers stood forlornly outside the
locked doors of the financial district's office buildings, hoping someone
would let them in.
After 28 hours of work to bypass the faulty manhole, the Boston Edison Co.
switched on the power again at 8:08 p.m. yesterday.
The blacked out area covered several dozen blocks from South Station
the waterfront of the North End. In all, 6,500 Boston Edison customers lo
power, and officials said 4,000 of them were large commercial businesses.
The cause of the manhole fire had not been determined yesterday.
Rains raise fruit, vegetable prices
FRESNO, Calif. - The heavy California rainstorms have started fresh
fruit and vegetable prices on an upward spiral, and one expert says con
sumers could end up paying 25 cents a pound more.
"We know that there will be disruptions in the supply of fresh fruit and
vegetables for the next two weeks," said Jack King of the California Farn '
Bureau Federation. "There will be a price impact. Whenever the supplies
are cut that drastically, we'll see dramatic and volatile prices."
California, now suffering from a second straight year of above-average
rainfall, produces more than 40 percent of the nation's fresh fruit and
Picking has stopped on drenched strawberry, lettuce and qther r cr

On the Los Angeles wholesale market, strawberries have almost disap-
peared and vegetable prices have increased, said Jim Valladares of the
Federal-State Market News Service.
President Reagan yesterday flew over some of the damage left by th'
storm and promised quick federal assistance to storm victims.
The storm, which pushed eastward yesterday, had routed more than 9,20'
people and at least 5,000 remained cut off from their homes, mainly in th'
San Francisco Bay area. ,
House approves recession afi
WASHINGTON - The first major recession relief effort of the 98th
Congress won overwhelming approval of the House yesterday.
By a 324-95 vote the House approved a $4.9 billion plan that could provide
temporary jobs for nearly a million people as well as food and shelter for the
neediest. It was attached to a $5 billion measure to assure continued
payment of unemployment benefits.
Together, these measures constitute the first major anti-recessiozi.
initiative of the Congress that took office two months ago.
The Senate is expected to approve its own, slightly less expensive
legislation next week and President Reagan, after earlier opposing such a
jobs bill, has signaled he will probably sign the measure.
In another effort to help those hit by the recession the Senate Agriculture
Committee approved a bill giving financially struggling farmers the right to
demand deferral on repayment of federal loans from the Farmers Honje
The bill, estimated to cost the government $1.9 billion, would also make-$20
million of FHA operating credit available to farmers during the curreniT
planting season, raise the loan limits for individual farmers and extend
special authority to make loans in economic emergencies.'

Billy Frye, vice president for
academic affairs and provost, who
many view as the grim reaper in
University budget circles, said he was
'personally offended" by the
suggestion that administrators be
singled out for pay cuts. "It would be an.
empty and foolish gesture" that would
be very hazardous to the University,
said Frye, who makes $78,589 per year.
"A much simpler gesture would be if
everyone recognized (the ad-
ministration's) effort here," he said.
Herbert Sloan, a University medical
school professor, once again topped all
faculty members with his $130,700
salary. Readers may notice that Melin-
da Brown-Lowy, a research assistant in
physiology is listed as making a bit

paying her the $278,200 listed on the
computer printout, Brown-Lowy is
unaware of it, she said.
