warn of plot
to kill Pope

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador - A
guerrilla suspect has told security for-
ces there is a plot to kill Pope John Paul
II when he visits El Salvador on his
Central American tour, a military
spokesman said yesterday.
The pope arrived in Marxist-ruled
Nicaragua yesterday and was met with
a bitter atack on the United States for
using "blood and fire" to deny human
rights in the region.
SALVADORAN Defense Ministry
spokesman Col. Alfonso Eusebio Cotto
told a news conference that security
agencies have "indications" that 18
sharpshooters entered the country
recently with the mission of
assasinating the pontiff during his 10-
hour visit here Sunday.
Cotto said security agencies got the
information from a guerrilla suspect
who was hit by a car trying to flee cap-
ture by detectives and died soon after.
he said that before the suspect died, he
told his captors about the plot and tur-
ned over to them a breakfast cereal box
with 18 passports of the alleged
HE REFUSED to give further
Leftist guerrillas burst into two radio
stations in the capital yesterday and
forced disc-jockeys to play tape-
recordings accusing the government of
trying to "sabotage" the pope's visit.
The tapes claimed the sabotage
"could possibly go as far as attempting
against the pontiff's life as was done
with Monsignor Romero." Archbishop
Oscar Arnulfo Romero was shot dead
by a sniper while saying mass three
years ago, and the killing is generally
attributed to a rightist assassin.
In Nicaragua ruling junta coor-
dinator Daniel Ortega read a 25-minute-
long speech, praising the Sandinista
revolution and strongly attacking,what
he called the "distorted policy" of the
United States in Central America.
"Holy Father, you visit a Central
America shaken by hunger and thirst
for justice of the people, and by the
powerful who with blood and fire deny
the people these rights," Ortega said,
raising his voice repeatedly.

Gold prices continue free fall
NEW YORK-Gold resumed its free fall on world bullion exchanges
yesterday, at one point dropping as much as $25 an ounce to reverse a mild
recovery from an earlier 20 percent plunge.
Analysts said uncertainty over OPEC's ability to resolve differences
among its members renewed investor fears that oil-producing nations would
unload gold to make up for lost petroleum revenues.
Just two weeks ago, before a bout of frenzied trading began, bullion stood
at $505.70 a troy ounce in contracts for current delivery on the New York
Commodity Exchange. After a weeklong selloff, gold descended to $400.50 an
ounce at the close of trading Monday, but then rebounded to wind-up at
But yesterday the selling resumed, and gold tumbled as low As $405 by
midafternoon as unconfirmed reports of heavy selling from the Middle East
circulated among traders. By day's end, gold inched back to close at $417.60
on the Commodity Exchange.
"It's wild," said Larry Schoen, chief bullion dealer at Rhode Island
Hospital Trust National Bank at Providence, a leading gold trader.
"Everybody is a tot more nervous and a lot more jumpy."
OPEC meets in last minute
attempt to avoid price war
LONDON-All 13 OPEC members will meet in London Monday to try and
clinch a deal to avert a global oil price war, the United Arab Emirates oil
minister said yesterday.
After a two-day meeting of eight OPEC members, several ministers ex-
pressed optimism yesterday that a settlement could be reached but said
there was still no agreement on price or production cuts.
Among the five OPEC members not at the meeting was Iran, which has
vowed to fight any cut in the current OPEC benchmark price of $34 a barrel
and is reported demanding an increase in its production quota.
Tehran radio, monitored in London yesterday, quoted Prime Minister Mir
Hoseyn Musavi as warning against "a conspiracy to bring down the price of
oil." He was quoted as saying the conspiracy was aimed at cutting the
revenues Iran needs to fight Iraq.
There has been discussion of a $4 cut in the benchmark price. A $4 drop
would have a little effect on retail gasoline prices in the United States.
Nearly two-thirds of the oil used by"U.S. refiners already is priced at $30 a
Texas tub deaths may be linked
HOUSTON-Investigators have found no hard evidence linking the deaths
of three wealthy women found dead within a 72-hour period in bathtubs in
their fashionable westside homes, a detective said yesterday.
But detective J. C. Mosier said there are obvious similarities in the cases
and detectives "will not rule out the possibility that the cases are connec-
The latest victim, found Thursday night, was Elizabeth Faubus, 44,
estranged wife of former Arkansas Gov. Orville Faubus. Her nude body was
found in a bloody, water-filled bathtub in the master suite of the large home
where she lived alone.
Mrs. Faubus and the other two victims, Ruth Kottler, 61, and Bertie
Elizabeth Eakens, 74, were all smothered or asphyxiated, Mosier said.
Mrs. Kottler and Mrs. Eakens both were found were fully clothed and face-
down in their bathtubs Tuesday.
Storms thunder into Southwest
A Pacific storm that ravaged California for six days rammed into the
Southwest yesterday with tornadoes and thunderstorms and snow over the
mountains of Colorado, Arizona and Utah.
Remnants of the storm spawned heavy rains in the West and Northwest,
causing minor flooding in parts of Oregon and Idaho.
The California storms, which killed at least 17 people since last week,
damaged 4,000 homes and 350 businesses, the state office of Emergency Ser-
vices said. Damage to public property was estimated at $75 million, and
damage to private property at $98.2.
Elsewhere, warm temperatures were reporte'd across much of the Mid-
west and mid-Atlantic states, with an 81-degree reading in Richmond, Va.,
tying a record set in 1974 and a 75-degree reading in Cleveland breaking the
74-degree record set in 1976.
EPA head loses support
students' attitudes about employment
over the past four or five years.
"Students seem to be a little more
stable and more oriented toward school
and work," he said.
Counselors at the Student Em-
ployment Office agree.
"WHEN I first started working (at
SEO), students would hold off for
higher paying jobs or jobs in their
major. Now it's the reverse," said
counselor Caroline Newberg.
"Before, the economy was better
(and) more financial aid was
available," Newberg said. "(Now)
more students are needing to work to
meet educational expenses."
But students confronting the bleak
prospects of the Ann Arbor part-time
job market should not be too
discouraged, the managers said. With
persistence - and a dose of luck -
students will succeed in finding work.
"PERSISTENCY is the thing that
gives them (students looking for work)
a chance," Cummins said. "It's
someone who repeatedly comes in who
sticks in my mind. And it depends on
how desperate you are. If you are
desperate, you hostess. If you are
desperate, you wash dishes."
Musser echoed Cummins' advice to
be aggressive and suggested that
students expand their search beyond
the campus area to improve their chan-
"If a student is really looking for
work, he can usually find it, but he must
be persistent," he said. "You can never
have too many good employees."

Blask graduated last fall with a degree
in linguistics and has been job hunting
for four months. Blask is worried about
being able to pay his rent and the
government loans that are now due
because he has graduated.

around my leg and my loan is like a
rope around my neck," he said.

"WE GIVE them tests so they can get
used to the pacing and techniques," he
says. "Each question-is selected so it
can introduce a topic to be
reviewed . . . . It's 95 percent im-
provement of the verbal and math

The Harvard study was embraced by
the Education Testing Service.

the interpretation of the ETS," said

executive vice president. "The special

The Harvard researchers noted a
wide variation in the results of studies
done over the years. But generally they
found that the more scientifically the
studies were performed, the less likely
they were to find a significant advan-
tage from coaching.
SOME STUDIES compared the per-
formance of youngsters who received
coaching with that of a carefully mat-
ched group who took the tests without
tutoring. Others compared the coached
students' scores with the average of all
pupils who took the tests.
Their analysis discounted the less
sophisticated studies and found: "Vir-
tually all coaching programs can be
expected to offer positive benefits for
both math and verbal studies, although
the real gains are likely to be
small-around 10 points and almost
certainly less than 15."

WASHINGTON-Anne Burford struggled to keep her job as chief of the En-
vironmental Protection Agency yesterday as the Justice Department
decided it will no longer defend her contempt of Congress case and two top
Republicans called for her departure and "a clean sweep" at EPA.
Rep. Bob Michel, the House GOP leader, and Sen. Robert Stafford of Ver-
mor", chairman of the Senate Environment Committee, both said the EPA
administrator should be replaced as recognition that the agency was in
Burford's closest aides reacted with shock to the Justice Department
decision, and some read it as a sign the administration is turning up the
pressure to try to force her to resign.
The EPA administrator let it be known through aides that she thinks
President Reagan had received poor advice through the three month battle
over EPA documents subpoenaed by Congress. The comments marked the
first time that Burford or her aides had not spoken in concert with
White House officials.
