Reagan greets Grenada students
From AP and UPI To A CH EHERING flag-waving spokesman said of Reagan's targets. group, said:

WASHINGTON - President Reagan
yesterday urged the American medical
students evacuated from Grenada to
honor the U.S. troops killed on the
island by speaking out "about their
courage and commitment as they
risked their lives for yours''.
Saying he was angered "that certain
people belittled the danger you were
in," Reagan welcomed nearly 500 of the
550 students of St. George's University
Medical School to a White House
ceremony at which student represen-
tatives presented him and American
servicemen with tokens of ap-

said, "It's very easy for some smug
know-it-all in a plush, protected quar-

Reagan has since called a "rescue
"I've wondered how many of them
would change places with you,''
Reagan said.
Presidential spokesman Larry
Speakes said afterward he thought
Reagan might include some of his
congressional critics among the "smug
know-it-alls," but that Reagan was not
aiming his remarks at the news media.
"THEY KNOW who they are," the

The White House brought ten veterans
of the Grenada landing from each of the
four armed services to sit in the front
rows as Reagan praised the military
men for their bravery.
The students, virtually all of whom
were in Grenada after being refused
admission to medical schools in the
United States, now are being divided upI
to finish the semester at fair facilities in
New York, New Jersey and Barbados.1

LANSING (UPI) - The state lottery
raked in a record $221.3 million for the
state's schools in fiscal 1983 and expects
the take to be even richer in the current
budget period, officials reported
The lottery, under review by a
legislative committee and criticized for
earning much of its revenue from low-
income people, made the announ-
cement at a Capitol news conference
featuring Commissioner Michael Carr
and Barbara Roberts Mason of the
State Board of Education.
MASON NOTED the money, while it
represents a small portion of the $1.9
billion spent on education, covers the
cost of special education, vocational
education, as well as most of the expen-
se of busing.
Lottery revenues have been ear-
marked for the schools since 1981.
Mason expressed little enthusiasm
for legislative proposals which would
return lottery revenues to the com-
munities where they are generated.
take a look at what local school districts
need," she said. "Some districts need
more funds (from the state) than other
Gross lottery sales totaled $549
million, up 4.1 percent from the
previous year, with 58 percent of the

agency's income coming- from the
"Daily 3" game.
Winning players received $269 million
in prize money, with the largest payout
totaling $2 million.
"WE EXPECTEDto do substantially
better than that in the next year," Carr
This coming spring, he noted, the lot-
tery plans to introduce the lotto-type
game which has proven "so popular in
some eastern states."
In the lotto-style game, the pot can
build from week to week if there is no
winner, with the final payoff in the
multi-million dollar bracket.
ON another subject, Carr said he does
not believe the state should legalize slot
machines and other forms of gambling
until it has "conducted a thorough
study into all of the ramifications."
And he responded to Racing Com-
missioner William Ballenger's com-
plaint that the lottery gets more money
for advertising than horse racing, even
though it pays less to bettors.
Ballenger "is a very good racing
commissioner and ought to stick to
racing," Carr said.
The lottery and the racing office can-
not be compared because the latter is
"a regulatory agency and their
business is not necessarily to actually
raise money for the state," Carr said.

Electric company charged in
Three Mile Island cover-up
HARRISBURG, Pa. - A federal grand jury indicted Metropolitan Edison
Co. yesterday on charges of covering up by "trick, scheme, and device"
falsified records at Three Mile Island before the 1979 accident at the nuclear
U.S. Attorney David Dart Queen said at a morning news conference the
grand jury returned an 11-count indictment against MetEd, which operated
the nuclear plant when it was the site of the worst commercial nuclear power
accident in history.
The indictment, which named no people, stemmed from an investigation by
the grand jury, Queen's office, and the FBI. The maximum fine for convic-
tion on all counts would be $85,000, Queen said.
The grand jury, which reportedly completed its three-year probe last
week, found that between October 1978 and the March 28, 1979 accident, the
company violated provisions of its operating license, Nuclear Regulatory
Commission regulations and a federal law against making false statements.
Fighting closes Beirut airport
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Shiite Moslem gunmen fought Lebanese soldiers
near U.S. military positions yesterday, wounding a Marine and forcing
authorities to close the airport for the first time since a truce took effect six
weeks ago.
The Syrian government ordered a full mobilization of the 220,000-man
army, saying it feared an attack from the United States or Israel. But
the Americans and Israelis said there were no attack plans.
In northern Lebanon, Palestine Liberation Organization chairman Yasser
Arafat's loyalist guerrillas, trapped in their last Middle East stronghold by
advancing Syrian-supported mutineers, fired rockets and mortars at rebel
positions to counter a barrage of hundreds of shells. Police said 1,000 people
have been killed and 3,000 wounded since the PLO war began Thursday.
Andropov's ahbence from parade
spurs rumors of serious illness
MOSCOW - President Yuri Andropov was absent from the annual military
parade through Red Square yesterday, persuading Western diplomats that he
has more wrong with him than the cold cited by the Soviets.
It was believed to be the first time a Communist Party chief has missed
the event, which marks the anniversary of the-1917 Bolshevik revolution that
brought the party to power. On Saturday night Andropov failed to attend a
gala Kremlin session opening the celebrations.
Several Western diplomats said they were certain a more serious illness
kept Andropov from appering at Lenin's Tomb to review the parade, which
featured a pronounced anti-American theme.
There was no official mention of Andropov's absence, and television
cameras, in a break from usual practice, did not show the leaders on the red
granite and marble tomb until some 15 minutes after the live nationwide
coverage began.
Reagan readies for trip to Asia
WASHINGTON - President Reagan, preparing for a six-day journey to
Asia, said yesterday he would like to see Japan militarily strong despite con-
stitutional restraints on its forces. He said he would station more U.S. forces
in South Korea if necessary.
The president leaves Washington today on a 15,650-mile trip to Japan and
South Korea, underscoring U.S. determination to remain a military power in
the Pacific as well as frustrations with Tokyo over trade problems.
Extraordinary security was readied in both countries. Japan mobilized a
90,000-member protective force and South Korea put its military on higher
Presidential advisers decided Reagan should go ahead with the long-
planned visit to the Far East despite the turmoil in Lebanon and the U.S.
military involvement in Grenada, Deaver said in an interview.
"It's a4eeisiontwe thought about and we-have determined that because of
1 the overriding importance of these countries, on balance he should follow
1 through on his plans," said deputy White House chief of staff Michael Deaver.
Ma Bell seeks record rate hike
WASHINGTON - Even though $1.5 billion worth of telephone rate increases
already have been approved in 1983, additional boosts totaling more than
four times that amount are pending before regulators in many states.
A survey by The Associated Press, conducted over the past three weeks,
identified a record $6.7 billion worth of proposed rate increases across the
country, filed by either Bell System companies or independent phone com-
panies such as affiliates of GTE Corp.
The effects of the rate increases, if granted, would vary widely from state
to state and customer to customer. They are defended by telephone
executives as essential to reflect faster depreciation of equipment; to earn
larger profits to attract investors, and to shift to more efficient pricing -
charging customers on the basis of use, as is the case with natural gas or
"With the removal of subsidies from our industry, it's really important
that our prices be based on our costs - that the individual services pay their
own way," says Tom Leweck, a spokesman for General Telephone of

California, which has a $221.1 million rate boost pending. "Our entire rate
design in this case is geared toward accomplishing that."
In 17 states, including Michigan, there are no pending rate boosts for local
services because local regulators granted increases earlier this year.
