Studies neglect UP
LANSING, Mich. (UPI) - An en-
,vironmental activist who serves on the
Vovernor's Task Force on High-Level
Radioactive Waste criticized federal
studies yesterday for failing to address

Wayne Schmidt's criticism came on
tthe eve of meetings on the subject plan-
ned by the task force in Marquette.
ROCK FORMATIONS in six U.P.
counties are among 230 under con-
sideration as the site for a second high-
4level radioactive waste repository.
Federal oficials are expected by the

for closer review.

charges including murder.

THE announcement of the plea

Mike Montagna came just hours after
Smith arrived in Los Angeles from
Toronto after ending a 22-month
challenge to extradition.
Her attorney in Canada, Brian
Greenspan, had refused to comment on
whether prosecutors had agreed to
reducercharges in retrun for Smith's
decision to return to Los Angeles.
Greenspan did say negotiations with
the Los Angeles district attorney's of-
fice "provided an acceptable basis for
Miss Smith's voluntary departure."
MONTAGNA SAID Smith had agreed
to plead guilty to involuntary man-
slaughter and three counts of fur-
nishing heroin and cocaine.
Belushi was found dead of "acute
cocaine and heroin intoxication" on
March 5, 1982, in a Los Angeles hotel
bungalow, authorities said. The star of
television's "Saturday Night Live" and
such films as "Animal House" was 33.

ton, Gordon Lightfoot and other
musicians, Smith was questioned by
police in California on the day Belushi's
body was found. She was released and
later moved back to Toronto from Los

Reagan promises arms action
WASHINGTON - President Reagan promised yesterday to place "concrete
ideas" on the bargaining table on new arms negotiations with the Soviet
Union and voiced hope the Kremlin "will follow a similarly constructive ap-
"I want to emphasize that we are determined to achieve a good agreement
- an agreement which meets the interest of both countries, which increases
the security of our allies, and which enhances international stability,"
Reagan said in a statement issued after the meeting.
"I view the negotiating commitments we undertook two weeks ago with
the Soviets in Geneva with the utmost seriousness," Reagan said. "I have no
more important goal than reducing, and ultimately eliminating, nuclear
weapons. The United States will have concrete ideas to put on the negotiating
table. We hope the Soviet Union will follow a similarly constructive ap-

in the Oval office, said "we haven't heard back yet" from the Soviet Union
about a time and a place for the superpower arms talks.
Sudan's food relief runs low
KHARTOUM, Sudan - Food supplies for the more than 160,000 Ethiopian
refugees in eastern Sudanese camps are running dangerously low and 80,000
more Ethiopian famine victims are believed to be headed for Sudan, relief
Despite a massive effort by Sudanese and foreign relief agencies in
distributing emergency shipments from the international community,
workers at several camps fear they will be unable to feed famine victims
unless new supplies can be found in a matter of days.
"In the east, the situation is undoubtedly much worse than it was last mon-
th," said Nicholas Morris, Khartoum representative for the United Nations
High Commissioner for Refugees.
"The problem is food. We are receiving 2,000 to 3,000 refugees a day, and
we're basically living from day to day."
The U.N. group estimates that since November about 130,000 Ethiopians
have fled into Sudan from drought-ravaged districts in the provinces of
Tigre and Eritrea.
Taiwanese authorities arrest 3
more in journalist's slaying
TAIPEI, Taiwan - A newspaper said yesterday that three more in-
telligence officers had been arrested in the slaying of a Chinese-American
journalist who was critical of the Taiwanese government.
Two FBI agents and a California policeman arrived to question a reputed
gang leader charged in the killing and another suspect. The journalist, 52-
year-old Henry Liu, was fatally shot Oct. 15 in Daly City, Calif.
The Chinese-language newspaper The Independence Evening Post quoted
sources as saying authorities had arrested Vice Adm. Wong Shi-lin, Maj.
Gen. Hu Yi-min and a colonel identified only as Kuo in connection with the
slaying. The arrest of a fourth official, Col. Chen Hu-men, was announced by
the government last week.
The newspaper did not identify its sources, and Defense Ministry officials
said they would have no immediate comment on the newspaper's report. No
charges have been made public.
Downed plane may have lost prop
RENO, Nev. - A 25-year-old Lockheed Electra turboprop airliner may
have lost one or more propellers during its takeoff, causing fatal vibrations
that plunged the craft to earth with the loss of as many as 69 people, officials
Washoe County Sheriff Vincent Swinney told newsmen, "One or two of the
propellers were found outside the immediate area of the crash site. I don't
know if it was a significant distance."
A source with the National Transportation Safety Board told United Press
International that investigators at the scene had recovered 14 propeller
blades, two of them some distance from the plane. Each of the Electra's four
turboprop engines has a four-blade propeller.
Investigators combed the area between Cannon Airport and the crash site
two miles south, seeking clues to the trouble which caused the pilot to say he
was experiencing vibrations and turning back moments after leaving the
airport. There was also a report that the plane may have been leaking fuel.
