Candidates start to show claws
From AP and UPI
As evidence mounted that President Reagan is
holding on to a substantial lead, Walter Mondale said
yesterday that the President believes federal
education and social programs are "a step toward
bondage and dictatorship." Vice President George
Bush told a Mondale supporter that the Democrats
this year are out of step with the people. And
Geraldine Ferraro warned computer factory workers
the Japanese are coming - and President Reagan
k doesn't care.
WHITE HOUSE spokesman Larry Speakes said
Reagan was "busy" yesterday but all of his appoin-
tments - including two interviews with unidentified
publications - were closed to the White House press
An ABC-Washington Post poll taken this week
showed Reagan ahead of Mondale 54 percent to 42
percent, and a new Harris poll put Reagan ahead 56
percent to 2 percent for Mondale.
Mondale turned his back on the disappointing post-
debate polls yesterday and said the crowds he had
been talking to give him the feeling he is going to win
the presidential election Nov. 6.
"Two days ago in Youngstown, Ohio, thousands
turned out," he said. "Yesterday in Ann Arbor,
Mich., 30,000 people turned out. The people are
IN CLEVELAND, Ohio, Mondale launched a major
new attack on Reagan, telling a crowd of several
thousand that Reagan sees dictators and repression
as the eventual outcome of government programs
designed to help people. He said Reagan believes that
"when you grant help to people, it moves us
inevitably on the way to dictatorship.''
In Syracuse, N.Y., Bush found some pockets of
resistance and told a Mondale campaign worker he
and his friends are "out of step with the people."
William Zuk, a Syracuse University graduate
student and Mondale campaign worker, asked how
low-income people could expect to get help from an
administration that has been described as "the most
selfish, arrogant and non-caring in recent memory."
"I think they're getting helped," Bush retorted. "I
think they're getting helped by a recovery that is so
"ONE REASON young people support us is that
they didn't like Walter Mondale's idea that the first
thing he would do is raise people's taxes," Bush said.
"The reason people are against you is that they want
opportunities and hope. All they got under Mondale's
regime was desolation. You're out of step with the
American people and that's why we'll win this elec-
In California, Geraldine Ferraro warned workers
in high-tech "Silicon Valley" that another four years
of Reagan's economic policies would be just as har-
mful to them as those policies have been to more
traditional segments of the economy.
"Our high-tech industries face the same com-
petitive challenge as the smokestack industries," she
said. "Simple decency compels us to have com-
passion for others. But even if it didn't, our own self-
interest tells us the Sun Belt cannot forsake the Frost
Belt, and high tech cannot forsake the smokestack."

Court acquits prof of pushing pot
LANSING - A former community college professor, discharged after
being accused of distributing marijuana in connection with one of his
classes, has been acquited by an Ingham County Jury.
"Finally, there is a just result," defense attorney Lawrence Emery said
following Wednesday's verdict.
Ronald Byrum - who taught "Altered States of Consciousness" - was
arrested at his Okemos home March 4 during a party which followed one of
He was fired by Lansing Community College May 15.
Emery said Byrum will pursue a grievance claiming his rights were
violated by the discharge.
Byrum was arrested by an undercover agent who posed as one of his
The officer reportedly enrolled in the course at the request of college of-
ficials who said they were tipped by a former student that marijuana was
being distributed in class. Byrum was an associate professor in the LOC
social science department specializing in psychology. He had been a full-
time employee of the college since 1975
FDA identifies hepatitis virus
WASHINGTON - Federal researchers have identified the virus that
causes the principal form of hepatitis transmitted through blood tran-
sfusions, and they say the findings should lead to an effective screening test
to identify contaminated blood supplies.
Scientists from the Food and Drug Administration and the National In-
stitutes of Health said the agent, or closely related group of agents, that
causes this type of hepatitis is an elusive retrovirus.
Members of this family of viruses have been implicated in causing a num-
ber of human diseases, including rare forms of cancer and acquired immune
deficiency syndrome, as well as various animal diseases.
In a report to be published today in the Lancet, a British medical journal,
researchers say they found evidence of the virus, or viruses, causing what is
called non-A, non-B hepatitis in four human serum specimens and two sam-
ples of plasma-derived blood products. .
Dr. Robert J. Gerety of the FDA said in an interview that the scientists
also found similar evidence of retroviruses in all serum tested from 12
patients with acute or chronic cases of this kind of hepatitis.
Poland charges official in kidnap
WARSAW, Poland - The government announced yesterday that it will
charge an Interior Ministry official on the abduction of a missing Roman
Catholic priest, along with two unidentified accomplices.
Poland's Roman Catholic primate said he feared the Rev. Jerzy
Popieluszko, an outspoken supporter of the outlawed Solidarity labor union,
may have been murdered. The primate, Cardinal Jozef Glemp, demanded a
full explanation of Popieluszko's disappearance from communist
Government spokesman Jery Urban announced that an Interior Ministry
official, identified only as Grzegorz P., would be charged in connection with
the abduction after the discovery of incriminating evidence in his car. The
car was believed to have been used in the abduction seven days ago.
Urban said in a radio broadcast that investigators had found hair mat-
ching that of the missing priest in the trunk of a car driven by the Interior
Ministry official. "It may be expected he will be charged and arrested on the
basis of investigation materials," Urban said.
CIA manual inquiry broadens
WASHINGTON - Congressional oversight committee staffs are
broadening their inquiries into the CIA's Nicaraguan rebel manual to
examine what the spy agency knew about alleged political killings carried
out by U.S.-backed forces, Capitol Hill sources said.
One committee source said that during the early days of the covert
operation, which began in December 1981, the CIA "did not have 100 percent
control of all these guys" and that it was clear that Nicaraguan civilians
"have been killed or murdered or even assassinated."
Another Senate source said staff investigators are looking into the CIA's
relationship with Argentine military advisers who handled much of the early
training of the rebel troops based in Honduras. The Argentine advisers were
withdrawn after the United States sided with Great Britain in the Falkland
Islands war in 1982.
Initial reviews by the staffs of the House and Senate intelligence commit-
tees focused on who authorized production of the CIA manual, which ad-
vocates "selective use of violence" to "neutralize" officials of Nicaragua's
But staff investigators for both committees are also looking into whetner
the rebels have, in fact, executed Nicaraguan officials and what the CIA's
role may have been, said sources, who spoke only on condition they not be
E. Lansing officer killed on duty
EAST LANSING - An East Lansing police officer was shot and killed in
the line of duty yesterday afternoon.
A second person, a resident of nearby Meridian Township, died in an ap-
parently related slaying.
Two people, a man and woman, were in custody in connection with both
Neither the victims nor the suspects were immediately identified.
Authorities said the officer was at a apartment complex populated
mostly by senior citizens, investigating a vehicle believed to be linked to a
safe cracking which occured Monday in White Pigeon. A weapon had been
taken in that crime.
The officer - who was working alone - was gunned down while entering
an apartment inside the building, officials said.
The two suspects were later seen pushing a vehicle in Meridian Township
and subsequently arrested.
