WASHINGTON (AP)-As President
Reagan defended the record of the En-
vironmental Protection Agency, his
administration moved this week to
clean house at the embattled agency
where all but three top appointees have
now departed.
Administration officials privately
have expressed the hope that William
Ruckelshaus' appointment as head of

in EPA scandal

the EPA would quiet the controversies
and allegations that have held center
stage in the nation's capital for nearly
three months.
But the controversy has not died.
Last week, a House subcommittee
released a document that appeared to
link a White House official to
allegations of political manipulation of
EPA "superfund," the billion-dollar

program designed to pay for cleaning
up the nation's toxic waste.
meeting between Rita Lavalle, former
head of the fund, and White House aide
James Medas detailed several 1982
gubernatorial races and noted the can-
didates backed by the administration.
After first dismissing the meeting as
insignificant, the White House staff
acknowledged it focused on politics, but
denied there were discussions of using
the cleanup funds for political pur-
THROUGH ALL the turmoil, Reagan
has defended his environmental record
and appointees. "No proof of any wron-
gdoing has been presented in all of this
fuss, as yet," he said at a news con-
ference Friday, minutes after five EPA
officials resigned.
Reagan said on the day Burford
stepped down that he did not engineer
her resignation. But sources, who spoke
on condition they not be identified, said
Reagan's staff passed the word to her
that she should leave.
When Reagan announced his choice
of Ruckelshaus, the president ignored
the allegations of conflict-of-interest,
political manipulation and
mismanagement that have spawned
several congressional inquiries. He also
dismissed congressional criticism of
the EPA as simply an argument over
which hazardous waste dumps should
be cleaned up first.
RUCKELSHAUS, who headed the
EPA when it was created in 1970,
agreed earlier in the week to return. He
is expected to gain Senate confir-

On virtually every issue last week,
Democrats in the House took advantage
of a new-found and more cohesive
majority to produce a tax and spending
plan radically different from the one
Reagan submitted in February.
" - The Legal Services Corp, which
Reagan wants to eliminate, would
receive nearly $300 million under the
House budget. Energy conservation
grants, Community Services Block
Grants and the Work Incentive
Program, all of which the president
wants to phase out, also would get con-
tinued funding.
" - There is enough room in the
Democratic budget to pay for a fifth
space shuttle, a purchase the White
House does not favor.
"c- There is money for a $4 billion
jobs bill to be passed next year. In ad-
dition to the $4.6 billionmeasure
Reagan signed Thursday.
" -- The House budget contains an
additional $150 million for the En-
vironmental Protection Agency.
," - The White House favors a pay
freeze for military and civilian gover-
nment employees, but the House wants
a 4 percent pay increase. The Reagan
budget also calls for no cost-of-living
increase next year for federal retirees.
The House wants a six-month delay in
the cost-of-living increase.
" - There is also extra money for a
variety of social programs, including
job training, low-income energy
assistance, mass transit, welfare and
education programs.

'Revolutionary' scanner
to probe cell and tissue

tist at General Electric Co. say they
have developed a "revolutionary"
system for medical examinations that
surpasses CT scans and X-rays while
eliminating the need to use chemicals
or radiation.
The system, which uses a 9-ton
magnet and sound waves, allows doc-
tors to examine the human body in
ways that in the past would require
surgery, says Rowland Redington,
one of the GE scientists who developed
the system.
The magnet-producing a power field
20,000 times the strength of Earth's
magnetic field is the first one' "big
enough, strong enough and uniform
enough" to allow analyses of heads and
torsos, Redington said.
Earlier experimental systems have
only been large enough to handle hum-
an limbs, Redington said.
THE SYSTEM allows doctors to see
through bones and into cells, and to
gather more subtle information about
living tissue than X-rays or CT scans,
Redington said.
Scientistat GE's research and
development center here said the
system will have "a revolutionary im-
pact on the field of medicine."
THE SYSTEM, called NMR for
nuclear magnetic resonance, would
make cellular changes immediately
detectable to doctors who would nor-
mally have to wait days for
measureable physical changes,
Redington said.
Duke University and the University
of Pennsylvania hospitals are working
with GE researchers on the project,

which GE is expected to offer for use in
hospitals shortly, Redington said.
NMR systems will cost more than the
million-dollar CT scan systems - in the
$1.5 million to $2.5 million range - and
will most likely require that hospitals
add special wings to shield the powerful
magnetic waves, he said.
THE MAGNETIC waves can disrupt
heart pacemakers, watches and com-
puter coding, Redington said.
With the system, a patient is
placed inside the huge magnet and the
body is probed by high frequency radio
signals which can be used to produce
animage of the soft, living tissue as well
as a chemical analysis, Redington said.
"One of the most likely applications for
NMR will be monitoring therapy, such
as radiation therapy for cancer,''
Redington said.
THE GE scientists have been

working on the project in a specially
constructed building at the companyes
research center since 1978. GE is one of
about a dozen companies working on
NMR projects, Redington said.
"It's the big brass ring and everbody.
is chasing it," he said.

The Hofstra University School of Law will offer a "Pre-Law
Summer Institute" for five weeks from March 31 to June 30
for the weekday section and for the evening section (Tues-
days and Thursdays) and from May 26 to June 25 for the Sat-
urday section.The Institute will be of value to those already
planning to attend law school or those still undecided.
Taught by the Hofstra Law School faculty, the Institute
seeks to develop analytical skills and to introduce the stu-
dent to the law library and legal writing techniques. These
are essential tools for competent performance in law
school. The Institute will be conducted in the same manner
as regular law school courses and will include case and stat-
utory analyses and research techniques.
