Reagan asks for
resignation of.
EPA chief

The Michigan Daily-Friday, March 25, 1983-Page5
Solidarity speakers
rally for unified peace

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Reagan
administration, in a continuing effort to
clean up the Environmental Protection
Agency, asked for and received the
resignations yesterday of the acting
head of the agency and two other of-
*ficials under investigation by
congressional committees, EPA sour-
ces said.
Dr. John Hernandez, who took over as;
acting adminstrator just two weeks ago
and immediately became the focus of
congressional investigations, will turn
in his resignation formally today ac-
cording to a source close to Hernandez.
HERNANDEZ, who himself has
come under fire for his actions in-
volving a report on dioxin con-
tamination in Michigan, will be
replaced as acting administrator by
Lee Vernstandig, according to an agen-
cy source who asked not to be identified
as the source of the information last
night.
Another agency source, who also
spoke on condition he not be identified,
said Assistant Administrator John
Todhunter and EPA General Counsel
RobertPerry were also resigning. The
resignations were requested in
meetings late yesterday with White
House aide Joe Ryan.
Both Perry and Todhunter are under
investigation by congressional commit-
tees probing a number of allegations of

conflict of interest and
mismanagement at the agency.
ONE AGENCY source said that the
administration was seeking the
resignations now in order to ease the
transition to Ruckelshaus, who is expec-
ted to have little trouble winning con-
firmation.
Hernandez, a former professor at
New Mexico State University, had been
the deputy administrator at EPA for
the past two years.
. He had expressed an interest in
holding the top job permanently, but as
soon as he was named acting ad-
ministrator he was drawn into the
scandal himself with accusations that
he ordered deletions favorable to Dow
Chemical Co. from a report concerning
dioxin contamination around Dow's
Midland, Mich. complex of plants.
Reagan named William Ruckelshaus,
who was EPA's first chief in the Nixon
administration, to return to head the
embattled agency on Monday and
Ruckelshaus said he had received
assurances he could put the "best
people" in charge at the agency.
Ruckelshaus, who will not assume
command of the agency for several
weeks, said upon accepting the job
Monday that he had received assuran-
ces he could clean house at the agency.

land on a street corner in Moscow, but
we can't build a television set to be
competitive in the world market," he
said. "Revolution is a messy business,
but government is too."
After the rally, four members of the
Latin American Solidarity Committee,
which sponsored the rally, carried the
wooden coffin to ROTC headquarters at
North Hall. "All these (ROTC mem-
bers) are pulling for Reagan's ideas,"
said pallbarer Dan Olshansky, a
graduate student in social work.
"It's a great Catch-22. The Latin
American people aren't thought to be
civilized enought to take care of their
own issues. But when they do install a
democratic government, we inter-
vene," he said.

Rally participants echoed the
speakers statements. "Students must
take a side for military victory for lef
tist forces in El Salvador against
Reagan and his death squads," said
Jeffrey Kaye, a member of the Spar-
tacus Youth League.

Mystery prof, fools 3 colleges

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A prof-
fesor whd held full-time teaching jobs
at two Pennsylvania colleges under
false identities, was also teaching in
Washington, D.C., and earning a total
(pf-nearly $90,000, authorities said
yesterday.,
O Qfficials at George Washington
.aiversity in the nation's capital said
Pennsylvania police presented them.

waids for Paul Crafton, 59, who has

4Je school full- or part-time since 1956.
TXHE SCHOOL immediately placed
Crafton on administrative leave, ac-
-,owding to an announcement by Dr.
kIrold F. Bright, university provost
and vice president for academic af-
fairs.
One published report said the
"mystery professor" had taken two

Abortion
bill passes
in Senate
(Continued from Page 1)
. The Hatch amendment states that "A
right to abortion is not secured by this
Constitution." To become part of the
Cpnstitution it requires approval of two-
thirds of the House and Senate and
,atification by 38 states.
The measure is intended to allow
states to enact their own laws
regulating abortion - an authority they
e joyed before the Supreme Court's
nmark 1973 decision that abortions,
at least in the first three months of
eregnancy, cannot be denied by law.

the current academic year to pay for an
operation for a crippled daughter. His
combined salaries at the campuses
came to $58,000.
Authorities were still saying they had
not confirmed the identity of the "John
Doe" who used different names at the
two Pennsylvania colleges and kept
identification papers for 13 aliases-in
his Lancaster apartment.
THE MAN, being held in' lieu of
$150,000 bail in Cumberland County
Prison, continued to insist that he was
Anthony S. Williams, the name used to
rent an apartment in Lancaster, about
85 miles northeast of Washington.
"He stated his name was Mr.
Williams," said Tom Powers, prison
director of treatment, following a
classification hearing Thursday mor-
ning. "He was in very good
spirits. . . and pretty much answered
our questions."

Meanwhile, officials at Towson State
University in Towson, Md., said the
man had been known to them as David
Gordon and taught business courses
from the fall of 1979 to March 1982 at the
suburban Baltimore school. Towson is
abaout 40 miles southwest of Lancaster.
Annette Flower, dean of liberal arts,
identified the man from a Maryland
state driver's license with the name
Paul Crafton.
The Lancaster Intelligencer Journal
reported yesterday that the man had
identified himself in a prison interview
with an unnamed newspaper source as
Paul Arthur Crafton, 59, of Potomac,
Md.
The Intelligencer quoted the suspect
as saying he had been teaching for
"peanuts" at George Washington and
needed money to take his daughter,
crippled since birth by cerebral palsey,
to Switzerland to undergo a spinal
fusion operation.
