The Michigan Daily - Tuesday, January 31, 1984 - Page 7-
(AP) - A snowstorm nearing bliz-
zard intensity produced "a winter
horror story" yesterday with up to a
foot of windblown snow across the
Midwest, blocking key interstate high-
ways and closing schools at it blustered
into the Northeast.
Winds gusting to 60 mph in places
flung snow at car windshields and
molded snowdrifts, often making
driving a one-lane crawl. School of-
ficials told children to stay home in
many cities, including Chicago, where
half a foot of snow had fallen by early
NORTHERN INDIANA reported the
heaviest accumulations of snow, with
up to 12 inches at Rensselaer. In neigh-
boring Illinois, 10 inches fell at Dixon
and 9 inches at Kanakee. Measuremen-
ts of 8 inches were common across
Minnesota, Illinois and Michigan. Iowa
got up to 7 inches and parts of Ohio had
6 inches on the ground by early mor-
New York City was warned to get
ready for up to half a foot of snow
during the night, with more possible in
the inland suburbs. Winter storm war-
nings also were posted in New England,
where up to 10 inches of show was ex-
pected in much of Connecticut and
Massachusetts and as much as a foot
was forecast for southern New Ham-
pshire and Maine.
In Indiana, a twin-engine turboprop
plane crashed shortly after takeoff
from Terre Haute, killing all three
aboard - two crewmen and an
executive of Britt Airways. A light mist
was falling at the time, after a snowfall
earlier in the night, but authorities did
not know immediately if the weather
was a factor in the crash.
"It's a winter horror story," said
state Illinois State Trooper Peter Negro
in Pontiac, Ill. "We're advising people
to stay at home."
The National Weather Service just
one day before Ground Hog Day issued
its forecasts for the month of February
projecting below-normal temperatures
for the entire country except for the

Several more inches of snow and ice fell on central Ohio yesterday during a snowstorm that swept the Midwest.

LANSING, Mich. (UPI) - Gov. James
Blanchard yesterday signed into law
early retirement legislation he said
provides an "orderly" and "humane"
Way to achieve his administration's
goal of shrinking state government.
A key sponsor said he believes the
program may be unique among public
employers the size of Michigan, and
said the state will be "a pioneer."
4THE MEASURES permit state em-
ployees who are at least 50 years old
and whose age and years of service
total 80 or more, to retire.
Retirees who have not reached 62 will
receive a monthly retirement allowan-
ce in addition to normal benefits.
the cost will be dovered by savings
realized by not filling vacant positions.
Under the law, no more than 25 percent
of those savings can go to replacing
departed workers. Blanchard noted his
administration projects a $60 million
savings from the legislation and expec-
ts it to trim the state payroll by about
1,500. Others expect upwards of 2,000 to

ceremony attended by their sponsors,
