EPA lists more toxic waste sites
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
WASHINGTON (AP) - The En-
vironmental Protection Agency iden-
tified 244 more toxic waste sites yester-
day that pose substantial threat to
human health, and a top official predic-
ted the list was "going to grow fast" in
The EPA formally proposed adding
the new sites to the national priority list
under the $1.6 billion "superfund" toxic
wastes cleanup program.
THE SITES, "may rank among
America's most hazardous and may
pose long-term threats to human health
and the environment," the agency said.
With the additions, which are still
subject to public comment and
discussion, the list contains 786 sites
that would qualify for cleanup money.
The EPA said 12 more toxic con-
tamination sites in Michigan are
eligible for Superfund money or in-
vestigations or cleanups.
John Perrecone, a spokesman for
EPA's Region 5 headquarters in
Chicago, said in a telephone interview
only New Jersey has more superfund
PERRECONE said about $29.2
million has been allocated for Michigan
projects in the fiscal year which began
Assistant EPA Administrator Lee
Thomas said the list still was just a
"We have said consistenly that -the
national priority list was going to grow,
and going to grow fast," Thomas told a
news conference. "I think within two
years that list is going to be up within
about 1,400 to 2,000 sites."
THE NEED for federal cleanup
money will far outstrip the current $1:6
billion available, Thomas said.
The EPA already has estimated that
between $8 billion and $16 billion wil be
needed to finish the job, he said, adding
the administration will seek the needed
money before current program lapses
next Sept. 30.
The list Thomas released was vir-
tually identical to one provided last
Friday by Rep. James Florio, (D-N.J.),
a sponsor of a bill in Congress to expand
the superfund to $10.2 billion over .five
years. The administration opposes any
aciton on superfund this year.
At the time he released the list, Florio
claimed the EPA was suppressing it to
lessen pressure on Congress to act.
Thomas denied there was any attem-
pt to suppress the list, arguing the
rigorous requirements of the EPA dic-
tated double checks to assure that the
sites qualified. He said the EPA action
was divorced from any congressional

WASHINGTON - The House voted 417-4 yesterday to guarantee Social
Security recipients a cost-of-living raise Jan. 1 even if inflation is held below
The Senate already has approved the legislation, which was sought by
Reagan in July when it looked as though the 3 percent trigger on which the
current law bases a cost-of-living increase would not be met.
However, the latest consumer index figures indicate that if current trends
continue, there will be a cost-of-living increase ranging between 3.3 percent
and 3.6 percent even without the legislation, according to the House Ways
and Means Committee. There are technical differences between the House
and Senate versions, so the measure will have to get final approval from the-.
Senate before going to Reagan for his signature.
Rep J.J. Pickle, (D-Texas), chairman of the Ways and Means subcommit-
tee on Social Security, said in floor debate that the bill is "almost certainly"
of no substantive benefit to the American public.
Syria identifies kidnappers
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Syria's secret service was reported yesterday to
have identified and located the kidnappers of a U.S. diplomat, an American
television journalist and a Saudi diplomat.
A Beirut newspaper close to the Syrian government said efforts were un-
der way to free the abducted men, and that Syrian President Hafez Assad
was personally involved in the effort.
The daily Al-Sharq said Syrian investivators have established the identity
of the group holding U.S. Embassy political officer William Buckley; Jerry
Levin, the Beirut bureau chief of Cable News Network; and Saudi Consul
General Hussein Farrash.
Al-Sharq did not give the name of the group.
There was no official confirmation of the report in Syria or by the
Lebanese government. The U.S. Embassy press officer in Beirut, John
Stewart, said he had nothing to say about the report.
In Washington, State Department deputy spokesman Alan Romberg said
the United States has been engaged in efforts to secure the release of the
Americans and has raised the subject with several governments. He had no
Cosmonauts set record m space
MOSCOW - Three Soviet cosmonauts returned safely to Earth yesterday
and were hailed as heros for making history's longest manned space flight.
Leonid Kizim, Vladimir Solovyev and Oleg Atkov rode a Soyuz descent
capsule to a landing on the steppe in Soviet Kazakhstan.
The Soviet evening television news showed the capsule wafting down un-
der a red-and-white parachute, than a quick puff of fire and smoke as the
craft's soft-landing engines fired
During the delayed broadcast of the cosmonauts' return, Soviet television
showed the three spacemen chatting with Soviet reporters moments after
the landing while ground crews helped them out of the capsule and their
The Soviet news agency Tass said that although yesterday was the 238th
day of the mission, they had completed 237 full days in space. Tass said the
three cosmonauts were in good physical condition.
They surpassed the endurance record of Soviet cosmonauts Valentin
Lebedev and Anatoly Berezovoy, who spent 211 days in space in 1982. During
the mission abard an orbiting laboratory, the three cosmonauts were -
visited by two other Soviet space crews. A member of one of the crews was
Svetlana Savitskaya, who July 25 became the first woman to walk in space.
Boat sinks in Hamburg harbor
HAMBURG, West Germany - A chartered ferry carrying about 30 people
on a birthday cruise sank after a collision with a tugboat in rainy Hamburg
harbor last night. Police said one person drowned and five people were
They said 24 people were rescued and taken to hospitals and one body was
recovered from the chilly waters following the collision of the ferry Martina
and the tug Theresa.
The accident occured at 1:25 p.m., and hours later patrol boats using
spotlights and teams searching the harbor banks had not found any of the
missing people. The captain of the ferry boat was among them, and police
said that was one reason authorities had only sketchy details about the in-
They said they were trying to locate the tugboat's skipper and crew.
Police spokesman Volker Hartwig told The Associated Press the ferry had
been chartered for a birthday party and carried "around 30" people, in-
cluding an unknown number of children, when the accident occured near'the
point where the Elbe River flows into the huge harbor.
Power outage darkens West
PORTLAND, Ore. - A "major disturbance" in electrical transmission
lines briefly cut off power yesterday to nearly three-quarters of a million
people in parts of eight Western states, officials said.
Power was out for periods ranging from 15 minutes to an hour in parts of
Idaho, Oregon, Washington, California, Nevada, New Mexico and Arizona.
Some customers noticed only a brief flicker in lights, and some large in-
dustrial plants in Utah also were affected.
The Bonneville Power Administration's high-voltage system "separated
from both Idaho and California" about 10:05 a.m. PDT, said Ed Mosey, a
spokesman for the federal agency that supplies hydroelectric power to local
The agency restored power to affected utilities at 10:20 a.m., he said, but
some individual utilities took longer to restore power.
"We don't know what caused it, whether it was on our system or someone
else's system," Mosey added.
