Young wins 61 percent of vote,
looks forward to fourth term
DETROIT - Mayor Coleman Young began looking forward to a record
fourth term yesterday after scoring a knockout over scrappy challenger
Tom Barrow and pledging to make Detroit "a great city" for both blacks
The popular incumbent finished with nearly 61 percent of the vote in
Tuesday's nonpartisan election to 39 percent for Barrow, the nephew of
boxing legend Joe Louis.
Elections officials said the final, unofficial vote totals were 141,551 for
Young and 90,907 for Barrow. Only about 35 percent of the city's
registered voters went to the polls.
"I am determined that Detroit will continue on the road of progress .. .
that it not be a great black city, not a great white city, but a great city,"
Young said at his victory celebration.
Ex-KGB agent returns home
WASHINGTON - After satisfying the State Department he was not
coerced by Soviet authorities, former KGB agent Vitaly Yurchenko left
yesterday for his homeland, where a variety of experts believe a bleak
future awaits him.
Yurchenko left the United States at 4:55 p.m. EST aboard the same
Soviet Ilyushin 62 jet airliner that shortly after noon brought Ambassador
Anatoly Dobrynin back from presummit talks in Moscow.
The Soviet agent, accompanied by about 20 other Soviets, walked
briskly from a van at Dulles International Airport near Washington into
the aircraft. He paused briefly and waved to reporters, but said nothing.
Three U.S. government officials briefly boarded the plane and left a
few minutes later.
Queen outlines govt. program
LONDON - Queen Elizabeth II, opening Parliament with the full pomp,
of the realm, outlines a government program yesterday that calls for
tough action against riots in the slums and the biggest sale yet of state-
The Speech from the Throne, written by the Conservative government,
also promised a new attempt to find peace in Northern Ireland.
Reading it to Parliament, the 59-year-old monarch wore a full-length
white dress, velvet train and the jewel-encrusted Imperial Crown.
The approximately 20 bills envisaged by Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher's administration contained no new proposals for reducing
unemployment, now at a near-record 13.1 percent.
Her planned sale of British Gas, expected to fetch up to 8 billion pounds
($11.44 billion), is the most radical step yet in the Conservative policy of
selling off public enterprises.
Thatcher's government already has turned 12 major concerns over to
private investors, including the sale in 1984 of its majority share in the
national telephone and telex system British Telecom for 3.9 billion pounds
Record crew lands Challenger
EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. - Challenger coasted onto a
desert runway yesterday after a science mission flown by a record crew.
of eight, and researchers promptly began studying five of the astronauts
to see how they re-adapt to gravity.
The space shuttle and its crew of five Americans, two West Germans
and a Dutchman touched down at 12:45 EST on a dry lakebed after a
seven-day, 45-minute mission in which it orbited the Earth 111 times and
traveled more than 3 million miles.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration chief James Beggs
said the success of the international, West German-sponsored mission
"gives us a lot of confidence that we can proceed to the space station era
where we'll be cooperating with a number of countries."
During the 48-second coast after Challenger touched down on the Ed-
wards runway, mission commander Henry Hartsfield tested a new nose
wheel steering system that is to give more control for landing space shut-
"We are optimistic that it worked well," NASA shuttle director Jesse
Moore said at a news conference.
Moore said he believes the test will enable the shuttle Columbia to land
in December on the concrete runway at the Kennedy Space Center in
Voters affirm stance on issues
Voters approved ballot measures affirming handgun control and the
right to abortions and to smoke-free workplaces, but three communities
rejected attempts to fluoridate their water and San Franciscans refused
to limit downtown high-rise construction.
Even in an off-off year election, voters in nine states and scores of cities
and towns grappled with ballot issues that touched on some of the nation's
most emotion-laden economics and social questions.
Three New England towns - Bristol, Conn.; Dover, N.H.; and Derry,
N.H. - rejected similarly worded measures Tuesday calling for the over-
turning of the U.S. Supreme Court's 12-year-old ruling that legalized
It was the first time since the high court ruling, Roe vs. Wade, that
voters had the chance to vote on such referendums.
Oak Park, Ill., one of four U.S. cities which have banned handguns, beat
back a proposal to repeal its 13-month-old ban. The other cities with
similar handgun laws are Washington, D.C.; Morton Grove, Ill.; and
Tucson, Ariz., voters passed a proposition restricting smoking in work-
places, and another one limiting the size and location of billboards. But
they defeated a measure that would have required smoke-free space in
