Washington denied Japanese news
media reports yesterday that U.S. . ,
Navy search vessels were preparing to
retrieve the flight recorder of the South y
Korean airliner shot down by Soviet
"As of this afternoon, we have not
found the black box; I'm not waffling on
that one," said Lt. Gary Shrout, ,
spokesman for the U.S. Navy in Japan. A
HIS SUPERIOR officer, Capt. Heber '
Darton, said he had been in contact
with Washington and 7th Fleet
headquarters in Hawaii, and "neither
has anything at all to indicate any
change in the situation.-
President Reagan, asked by repor-
ters in Washington if the United States AP Photo
had recovered the recorders, replies, "I A
have no knowledge that we have. No." W hat s hoppin ?

Reagan promises to heed War Powers Act
Reagan said yesterday he would ask for
congressional approval of any substantial
expansion in the role of U.S. troops in
Lebanon and would seek agreement with
Congress if he thinks they must stay for
more than 18 months.
Reagan gave the assurances to anxious
congressional leaders in a letter designed
to calm fears that the administration may
not live up to its end of the compromise
struck with Congress.
THOSE FEARS were aroused when
Secretary of State George Shultz refused
to tell a congressional panel what the ad-
ministration plans to do with the troops af-
ter 18 months.
The compromise, which Reagan has
said he will sign with reservations, is
scheduled for a vote today or Thrusday in
the Senate. Majority Leader Howard
Baker, (R-Tenn.), has predicted it will be
approved after a possible close vote on a
move to reduce the 18-month period.
It will then move to the House, where the
deeply divided Democratic majority met
in closed session on the issue yesterday
without reaching agreement.
THE COMPROMISE recognizes that a
timetable for removal of the troops has
been triggered under provisions of the 1973
War Powers Act because the troops are in
a hostile situation. In return for this, it
authorizes the administration to keep the
1,600 Marines at their peacekeeping posts
for up to a year-and-a-half.
Shultz, in testimony at congressional
hearings last week, declined to be pinned
down on what the administration would do
at the end of 18 months, saying the
president did not intend to surrender his
constitutional authority as commander in
chief of the armed forces.
This prompted some critics in Congress
to charge that the administration apparen-
tly intended to renege on the deal. Shultz
added fuel to the fire in a weekend inter-
view in which he said the troops would be
needed for as long as it took to install a
stable government in Lebanon.

Reagan pushes Congress to
finance international fund
WASHINGTON - President Reagan warned yesterday that refusal by
Congress to approve $8.5 billion in increased U.S. financing for the Inter-
national Monetary Fund could lead to a global "economic nightmare"
"I have an unbreakable commitment to increased funding for the IMF,"
the president told the formal opening of the joint annual meeting of the
World Bank and IMF. "But Congress so far has failed to act to pass the
Reagan urged the Congress to be "mindful of its responsibility" and lay
aside "partisan wrangling and political posturing."
Speaker Thomas O'Neill has refused to move the legislation along until
Reagan meets his demand for a letter of apology to 20 House Democrats who
were attacked in a Republican campaign letter for "supporting com-
munism" when they voted to support the president on the IMF bill. No
Republicans were targeted in such a manner.
Airlines fight to stay in flight
MIAMI - Eastern Airlines accused its largest labor unions yesterday of
"flirting with disaster" by refusing to accept a 15 percent wage cut that
carrier President Frank Borman warned was the only way to avert financial
A company spokesman said Eastern would not hesitate to file for bankrup-
tcy if it did not get the wage concessions. Borman gave the unions until Oct.
12 to respond to the proposal.
Meanwhile, in Houston, Continental Airlines resumed domestic service
yesterday, 62 hours after filing for bankruptcy reorganization, and some of
the 4,200 workers called back at lower pay and longer hours cheered the
The first plane took off from Dulles International Airport in Washington
for Houston at 8 a.m. The first liftoff from Houston, company headquarters,
came 42 minutes later, and employees at the gate cheered and wept.
Falling jet debris ignites fires
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - A Republic Airlines jetliner landed safely
yesterday after developing engine problems and spilling debris that ignited
several rooftop blazes and a brushfire, authorities said.
The incident started just after the twin-engine DC-9 Super 80 took off from
Orange County's John Wayne International Airport. Republic said Flight 374
carried 69 passengers and five crew members and was destined for Chicago
It returned to John Wayne and landed safely "without problems"
following the 12:55 p.m. incident, airport Operations Supervisor Curtis Por-
ter said. He added that there was no fire aboard the plane.
"A Republic Airlines plane took off and lost power to one engine," Porter
said. "I understand it also spilled parts from this engine onto Newport
Porter said a helicopter crew flying nearby saw the debris fall to the
ground and ignite the fires in the coastal community near the airport.
Porter said the plane flew out over the Pacific Ocean and dumped fuel
before landing safely.
Major railroads agree to merge
CHICAGO - Santa Fe Industries Inc. and Southern Pacific Co. yesterday
announced an agreement to merge, bringing together two railroads that vir-
tually built the Southwest.
The deal is the sixth in a line of "mega-mergers" that one expert said
typifies a "new golden age of railroads.'
Under the agreement, the two companies will become subsidiaries of a
newly formed holding company, Santa Fe Southern Pacific Corp.
The merger, announced by John Schmidt, chairman and cheif executive
officer of Santa Fe Industries, and B.F. Biaggini, chairman and chief
executive officer of Southern Pacific, is the latest in a list of rail mergers
that began with the junction of New York Central and the Pennsylvania
Railroad in 1969.
At a news conference at his company's headquarters in San Francisco,
Biaggini said the "merger of equals" will produce "one of the world's
largest and strongest companies."
Robbery is motive in
Texas fast-food killings
KILGORE, Texas - Texas Ranger yesterday said robbery was the
likely primary motive in a raid on a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant, and
that a decision to abduct and kill five people was made at the scene.
Ranger Glenn Elliott, participating in the two-county investigation, said
the killers might have known that $2,000 - and unusually large amount -
was in the restaurant till last Friday night.
The killers robbed the restaurant at about closing time Friday night, took
four employees and a visitor to a remote dirt road 10 miles south of town and
shot them to death. The bodies were found Saturday, with three men and a
woman lying together and a second woman lying 40 feet away, indicating she
