DES victims win legal victory
LANSING, Mich.-The Michigan Supreme Court yesterday handed a legal
victory to women who claim they have been scarred by cancer because of an.
anti-miscarriage drug prescribed for their mothers.
The court rules these women may proceed wit a suit against the
manufacturers of the drug DES even if they do not now which particular
firm made the pills their mothers took.
The court stressed, however, that the ultimate outcome of the case
remains far from certain.
The case, which involves 184 women and 16 drug companies, was filed in
Wayne County Circuit Court.
DES was invented in 1938 and approved for use in pregnancy nine years
later. The practice was banned by the federal Food and Drug Ad-
ministration in 1971 because of a study showing a statistical association bet-
ween the use of DES by pregnant women and cancer in the reproductive
systems of their daughters.
Critics claim DES was not effective and that the makers knew or should
have known it was derived from a cancer-causing agent.
Reserve board warns of deficits
WASHINGTON - The Federal Reserve Board yesterday joined the
President's embattled chief economist,-Martin Feldstein, in sounding a war-
ning about the dangers posed to the economy by the high budget deficits
projected in the administration's new budget plan.
Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker and his colleagues, in a semi-
annual report to Congress, spelled out similar concerns that the red ink ten-
ds to keep interest rates higher than they might otherwise be.
"Put another way, they are an offset to other forces working toward lower
interest rates," the report said.
The renewed worries about the deficits were sparked by last week's of-
ficial unveiling of President Reagan's spending blueprint for the upcoming
1985 fiscal year which starts Oct. 1. The plan projects deficits of about $180
billion over the next few years. The red ink hit a record $195.4 billion in 1983.
Responding to the public squabbling, House Speaker Thomas O'Neill (D-
Mass.), wondered aloud, "Does the president have an economic adviser? If
so, who is he? If it is not Martin Feldstein, who is he taking his advice from?
If it is Mr. Feldstein, why is Mr. Feldstein an unwelcome spokesman for the
Ex-official charges U.S. cover-up
of Salvadoran candidate's crimes
WASHINGTON - An ex-U.S. ambassador to E Salvador charged yester-
day that the Reagan administration had "created" rightist Salvadoran
leader Roberto D'Aubuisson as a serious presidential' candidate by con-
cealing evidence tying him to "death squads."
"How can people cast a free vote if vital information is denied'them?"
asked former Ambassador Robert White about El Salvador's March 25 elec-
tions in which D'Aubuisson is a leading contender..
In sworn testimony before the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on
Latin America, White also disclosed the names of six Miami-based
Salvadoran exiles who he alleged have financed and directed rightist "death
squads" in El Salvador.
Last week, White, now a professor at Simmons College in Boston, accused
the administration of concealing evidence that D'Aubuisson arranged a lot-
tery to pick the military officer who would have the "honor" of assassinating
El Salvador's Roman Catholic Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero, who was
gunned down March 24, 1980, while saying Mass.
Ethiopia expels 4 U.S. diplomats
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia - Ethiopia ordered the expulsionA'of four U.S:
diplomats amid charges that 18 arrested Ethiopians were spies who plotted
with a foreign power to topple the Marxist regime, Western diplomats said.
In Washington, a State Department spokesman said the United States or-
dered the expulsion of two Ethiopian diplomats in retaliation for the move.,
One of them has asked to remain in the United States.'
Western diplomats said there was a "strong possibility" that the expulsion
of the four diplomats and the arrest of the 18 Ethiopians, including two
colonels and a major, were directly related.
The expelled Americans were identified by the State Department as Er-
nest Brant, 1st secretary of the embassy, Paul Bradley, 2nd secretary
Timothy Wells, commercial counsellor, and Robert Kragie, vice-consul.
Diplomats said the expulsions showed a significant cooling of relations
between the Reagan administration and the Marxist regime of President

Report says hunger exists in U.S.
BOSTON - Hunger "has returned to America" because of unemployment
and government policy, according to a study released yesterday that differs
sharply with the recent conclusions of a White House task force.
The commission of educators, physicians, religious leaders and social
workers who conducted the study concluded that malnutrition is a serious
problem spreading to new groups of Americans.
"We have found that hunger is widespread and increasing," the authors
wrote. "Hunger is the result of clear and conscious actions taken by gover-
nment leaders."

The 112-page report of the Citizens Commission on Hunger in New England.
blamed inflation, unemployment and government policy.
It added, "We havefound concrete evidence of hunger in every state we
have looked. We found hunger and it wasn't hard to find.",
"Hunger is widespread enough from 'a medical perspective to be an
epidemic," said Chairman Larry Brown, of the Harvard school of Public
Health, who revealed the findings at news conferences in Washington and
