Gromyko cancels U.N.

bisft or
From AP and UPI
MOSCOW - The Kremlin yesterday
cancelled Foreign Minister Andrei
Gromyko's trip to the U.N. General
Assembly, accusing U.S. officials of
"refusing" to ensure his safe passage.
It was the first time he had called off his
annual U.N. visit in more than 25 years.
The move was in response to a
decision by New York and New Jersey
authorities to ban the Soviet U.N.
delegation from landing at New York
area airports - to protest the Soviets'
downing of a South Korean jumbo jet
Sept. 1. All 269 people aboard, including
61 Americans, were killed.
New Jersey Gov. Thomas Kean said:
"Mr. Gromyko quite obviously
received our message. We accom-
plished what we wanted to accomplish.
We demonstrated the total indignation
of the people of this country over the
Soviet action." New York Gov. Mario
Cuomo said: "I suspect the can-,
cellation has more to do with the
repudiation by the U.N." than with
safety considerations.
Gromyko's cancellation was announ-
ced by the official news agency Tass in
a three-paragraph statement that was
also the first official confirmation that
Gromyko had planned to make his
customary trip to the annual General
Assembly meeting, beginning Tuesday.
Gromyko, who became foreign
minister in 1957 and had attended every

General Assembly session since, used
the visits to make major policy
speeches and to meet with the U.S.
Secretary of State.
Tass did not say when Gromyko had
planned to go to New York, but if he had
followed past practice he would have
flown in Sept.25- the Sunday following
the opening of the General Assembly
session. A spokesman for the Soviet
mission in New York said other mem-
bers of the delegation would attend.
The agency said, "U.S. authorities do
not give guarantees that the safety of the
head of the U.S.S.R.'s delegation. .will
be ensured and that normal conditions
in this respect will be created. They do
not guarantee the adequate ensurance
of the arrival and servicing of a special
Soviet plane either."
"In this connection," Tass said, "a
decision has been taken on the im-

possibility of a trip to New York by An-
drei Gromyko...who was appointed to
lead the Soviet delegation to the 38th
session of the U.N. General Assembly."
In a later dispatch, Tass charged
"the United States has flagrantly
flouted its international commitments
by refusing to ensure safety for"
Tass also said, "the question arises in
general whether a country which does
not fulfill its obligations and does not
ensure the necessary conditions for
foreign representatives to take part in
the work of the United Nations
organization, is suited for the U.N.
headquarters to be situated there."
The State Department announced
Friday that Gromyko would have to fly
to the United States in a military air-
craft, not an Aeroflot airliner, and land
at a U.S. military base.

U.S. chopper
crashes while
searching for
wreckage of
Korean plane

From AP and UPI
A U.S. Navy helicopter crashed in the Sea of Japan
yesterday while hunting for the downed South Korean
airliner, but all four crewmen were rescued.
Meanwhile, Soviet search vessels clustered in the
same waters. Japanese officials said the Russians
raised a 30-foot-long piece of wreckage that may be
from the South Korean airliner they shot down.
Lt. Cmdr. Mark Neuhart, a Navy spokesman at the
Pentagon, said the helicopter was operating from the
frigate Badger and that it ditched while conducting a
search for the jet shot down by a Soviet interceptor in
Soviet airspace Sept. 1. All 269 people aboard the jet,
including 61 Americans, died.
NEUHARD said the chopper sank in "about 500
fathoms of water (3,000 feet). The four crew mem-
bers were picked up by the U.S. Coast Guard cutter'
Munro and were suffering only from exposure."
Identities were not immediately available, and
Neuhart would not be more specific about the crash
site, saying only it was in international waters west of
Sakhalin, a militarily strategic Soviet island.
Japanese officials had said waters in the area were
600-900 feet deep.
"Apparently we have confirmed there was no
hostile action against the helicopter. It is premature

to speculate but equipment failure could have been a
factor. The accident is still under investigation. As
far as we know, the sea state was good and the
weather was good," Neuhart said.
JAPANESE officials had no further information on
the chopper, but they said a Soveiet ship hoisted two
signal flags Saturday to warn Japanese vessels to
steer clear of the Soviet search zone 20 miles north of
Moneron, a Soviet island about 30 miles west of
Sakhalin's southern tip.
Rear Adm. Masayoshi Kato of Japan's Maritime
Safety Agency told reporters in northern Wakkanai,
just south of Sakhalin, that the Soviets put a 20-foot
yellow submarine into the water, then retrieved it
and marked the area with a red buoy.
He said one of the 26 Soviet ships in the area, the oil
driller Mikhail Mirchinsk, then winched up an
unidentifiable object from another Soviet vessel.
Asked whether the object could have been the jumbo
jet's "black box" flight recorder, he said, "I refuse to
Kato said that during the operation a Soviet patrol
vessel near the 12,000-ton rescue ship Georgi
Kosumin hoisted two signals declaring that the
rescue ship was "conducting undersea surveillance"
and that it was "dangerous to come near the ship."

Presidential candi~date
to speak at. Union

Colorado Senator and 1984
Democratic presidential hopeful Gary
Hart will make his first Michigan
campaign appearance today at 5 p.m.
in the Union's Pendleton Room.
Hart will outline his ideas on
helping war-torn Central America, a
region he recently toured. "He's not
simply going to attack Reagan's
policies in Central America," said the
Hart campaign's state field director
and University senior Marc Dann.
"He's proposing some specific
economic solutions, including
reviving the Central American Com-
mon Market."
Following his speech, Hart will at-

tend two fundraising dinners - a $50
per plate affair at Dominick's
restaurant and a $10 a ticket student
function in the University Club.
Hart's comments today are based
on his first-hand experiences in Cen-
tral America, including a close brush
with the violence there. Just moments
before the senator landed in
Managua, Nicaragua two weeks ago,
the airport and the room where he
was to speak were destroyed during a
bomb attack.
Dann and LSA junior Mark Blumen-
thal have been travelling around the
state establishing local campaigns
and gathering support.
