Reagan freezes Libyan assets
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Reagan, following up his order
0 issued Tuesday to halt all business
dealings with Libya, yesterday
ordered all Libyan government assets
in the United States frozen.
U.S. sources, asking not to be iden-
tified, said the Libyan government
had limited holdings in U.S. banks and
properties and predicted Libyan
leader Moammar Khadafy would
reciprocate by seizing the assets of
U.S. oil companies, believed to be
worth about $400 million, in Libya.
REAGAN'S order, to be effective
immediately, was taken under his
emergency powers granted under
several laws to enable him "to deal
with the threat to the national security
and foreign policy of the United
His order "blocked all property and
interests in property of the gover-
nment of Libya, its agencies, in-
strumentalities and controlled en-
tities and the Central Bank of Libya
that are in the United States" or that
may come into the possession or con-
trol of the United States or U.S. per-
The Reagan administration ac-
cused Khadafy yesterday of operating
numerous camps to train terrorists
and using "surrogates or mni -
cenaries" against moderate Arab and
African leaders who have ties to the,
West and refuse to fight Israel.
THE REPORT was released by the
State Department a day after
President Reagan announced new
sanctions against Libya. It accused
Libya of 59 instances of supporting
terrorism around the world since
'"Khadafy has used terrorism as one
of the primary instruments of his
foreign policy and supports radical
groups which use terrorist tactics,"
the report said.
FOR THE first time, the depar-
tment said Khadafy had provided
Iran with T-55 tanks,;t anti-tank and
anti-aircraft artillery, ammunitiond
and SCUD rockets to use in its war
with Iraq. Also, the report said, Libya
supplies arms and money to Kurdish
separatists in northern Iraq.
Reagan accused Khadafy of suppor-
ting terrorist operations such as the
Dec. 27 gun and grenade attacks at
the Rome and Vienna airports in
which 19 people, including five
Americans, were killed.
Most of the accusations contained in
the State Department document had
been reported previously. Khadafy
was not accused of engaging in
terrorist activities against the United
States, as the Libyan leader
threatened on Sunday to do if his
country was attacked by Isreal or the
AT HIS news conference Tuesday
night, Reagan said the United States
had "aborted 126 terrorist missions"
in the past year, but he refused to
provide any details.
On Capital Hill, Rep. George Brown
D-Calif., said the total came from CIA
reports involving "credible" terrorist
threats and he said the figure of 126
did not include 23 incidents reported
late last year by the FBI. White House
spokesman Edward Djerejian said,
however, that the 23 incidents were
part of the 126 total.

Physicists evaluate Newton's law
WASHINGTON (UPI) - Another force besides gravity
may act on falling objects, causing them to drop at dif-
ferent rates and defying Galileo's 300-year-old theory of
gravitation, scientists said yesterday. Galileo determined
in the early 17th century that, if differences caused by
wind resistance are excluded, all objects starting at the
same height fall at the same rate.
THE NEW study theorized another force beside gravity,
a previously unidentified force the researchers called the
hypercharge, makes objects fall at different rates depen-
ding on their chemical composition.
"It is actually a force the Earth is exerting on us right
LANSING radio station is joining with one in
Maine in calling for listeners to mail their garbage
now," said Ephraim Fischbach, principal author of the
study in the Jan. 6 edition of Physical Review letters
If proven by other scientists to exist, the hypercharge
would constitute the fifth basic force of the universe,
Fischbach and other scientists said.
The others, besides gravity, are electromagnetism,
responsible for electricity; the strong force, which holds
the nucleus of the atom together; and the weak force,
responsible for certain minds of radioactivity.
The four forces, which physicists have been trying to
unify under one formula or theory, are thought to explain
all things in nature.
