U.S. submits plan for
chemical arms check


control officials are hoping for Soviet
approval of a new anti-chemical
weapons treaty which would give each
of the superpowers the right to make
unprecedented and wide-ranging in-
spections of the other side's military
and government facilities.
The proposed treaty, which has been
offered by the United States at the 40-
nation Geneva disarmament talks, is
the subject of intense discussion among
U.S. allies, according to sources who
spoke only on condition they not be
WITH POLLS showing President
Reagan likely to win re-election, the
arms control policies which would be
pursued in a second Reagan ad-
ministration are now under review by
advisers who are divided on how to
verify any pacts.
The unprecedented inspection
proposal in the draft chemical weapons
treaty is one possible way to keep the
Soviets from cheating, say ad-
ministration officials. But the Soviets
have publicly criticized the U.S.
proposal and it is unclear whether they
will ever allow it.
Douglas Feith, deputy assistant
secretary of defense for negotiations
policy, said in a recent interview that
the U.S. treaty "is totally unpreceden-
ted. We've never made an offer like
THE HEART of the U.S. proposal is
an offer to permit "special inspections"
of all government facilities, including
any military installations, along with
all "government-controlled facilities,"
which would include private companies

doing contract work.
That would permit the Soviets to in-
spect a wide range of U.S. facilities if
they wanted, even the Pentagon or the
White House, Feith acknowledged.
But the United States would have the
same right to look at Soviet facilities,
something the Russians have never
granted, he noted.
THE U.S. proposal would create a
"fact-finding" panel of five nations, in-
cluding the United States, the Soviets
and three other countries. Only those
five could order a "challenge" inspec-
tion and any treaty member wanting a
check would have to convince one of
those five to seek it.
After the inspection was requested,
the challenged nation would have to
open its installation within 24 hours.
The challenge inspection would be in
addition to normal, routine checks the
panel would make.
The American proposal didn't win the
approval of all segments of the U.S.
government when it was first raised.
But Feith says the proposed inspections
are the only way to win an effective
treaty banning chemical weapons.
The problem is that chemical
weapons, unlike nuclear weapons, can
be produced in most ordinary chemical
plants. For example, Iraq's growing
stock of nerve gas has reportedly been
produced in a pesticide plant Iraq pur-
chased from a West German firm.
Although the treaty, if ever adopted
by the Conference on Disarmament,
could lead to wide-ranging inspections
of U.S. facilities, "that would actually
be unlikely to happen," Feith said.

Nicaragua leftist leader claims
victory in presidential election
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - Daniel Ortega, leader of the leftist Sandinista
government and the party's presidential candidate, claimed victory yester-
day in presidential elections and said the party is leading by "an ample
majority and an ample margin."
In Washington D.C., the State Department denounced Nicaragua's elec-
tion results as a "farce" because the Sandinistas had no credible opposition.
At midmorning, the Supreme Electoral Council said that with votes from
16 percent of the polling places counted, Ortega was leading with 68.1 per-
cent of the vote. The remainder was split among candidates of five small op-
position parties.
The Electoral Council said percentages in voting for the national assem-
bly were running at about the same percentage in favor of the Sandinistas as
those for president.
Ortega told a news conference in Managua: "We take for a fact the victory
of the FSLN in these elections." He used the initials of the ruling Sandinista
National Liberation Front.
"We have won the election battle against abstentionism," said Ortega.
"Taking into account the first official count, the FSLN is the winning force
with an ample majority and an ample margin."

WARSAW, Poland - The state-run PAP news agency said today that
Communist authorities have formally charged an Interior Ministry colonel
in connection with the Oct. 19 abduction and subsequent slaying of the priest.
Col. Adam Pietruszka was one of the two officials who had been reported
detained Friday. PAP said the other, a Warsaw police commander identified
only as Lt. Col. Leszek W., has been released for lack of evidence but faces
internal "disciplinary measures."
Three other Interior Ministry officials, identified by the Communist
government as a captain and two lieutenants in the secret police, were jailed
before Popieluszko's body was found Oct. 30. The three have been charged
with kidnapping.
In addition, a general who is a senior Interior Ministry official has been
suspended for "lack of supervision," according to a government com-
Church sources say pro-Solidarity priest Jerzy Popieluszko may have
been severely beaten before his death, and an official who attended the
autopsy said the priest's body was bound around the neck, hands and feet
when it was dumped in a reservoir.
A dissident said church officials were keeping a "terrifying" autopsy
report secret to maintain calm.
Strike causes drop in car sales
DETROIT - U.S. automakers yesterday reported their first drop in mon-
thly sales since February 1983, a .03 percent daily rate October decline that
analysts attributed to strikes at General Motors Corp.
The six U.S. firms - GM, Ford Motor Co., Chrysler Corp., American
N4tors Corp., Volkswagen of America and American Honda - opened the
1985 model year with sales of 689,563 cars in October, compared to 664,194
last year.
Despite this month's drop in sales, domestic automakers are expected to
roll up a record $9.1 billion in profits this year, while prospects for 1985 look
even brighter, a Standard & Poor's survey reported yesterday.
Donald Baker, an industry analyst for the business information and rating
service, is optimistic about the long term outlook for the auto industry
because according to U.S. Census Bureau projections the population bracket
aged between 35 and 44 - the group most likely to purchase new cars - will
be the fastest growing segment by 1990.
FBI arrests 5 accused radicals
CLEVELAND - Five accused revolutionaries, one of whom has been on
the FBI's Most Wanted List for seven years, were in custody yesterday and
authorities searched northeast Ohio for another man believed to be a mem-
ber of the group.
The six are suspects in a string of violent crimes, including the 1981 slaying
of a New Jersey state trooper, a dozen bombings and a series of armored car
and bank heists.
Police raided a farmhouse yesterday in an attempt to capture Thomas
Manning, 38, of Boston, who also is on the FBI's Most Wanted List. But he
apparently fled shortly before authorities arrived.
The five arrested, who authorities charge are members of the Sam
Melville-Jonathan Jackson Unit, were scheduled to appear before a U.S.
magistrate later yesterday for a bond hearing.
FBI agents and police from Maine to New Jersey have been hunting for the
members of the New England-based revolutionary gang.
