STRAIGHT released results
Monday of a survey of 1,000 drug

users aged 12-22 under
rehabilitation in eight U.S. cities,
including Plymouth, where the
Michigan program is based.
Forty-six percent of those
answering the written question-
naire said they used drugs before
they were 12 years old. Sixty-one
percent said they used alcohol first

marijuana first.

alcohol abuse, Murphy said.

S. African fire traps hundreds
EVANDER, South Africa - Welders accidentally ignited a fire in a
mile-deep shaft of the Kinross gold mine yesterday, and the flames and
fumes killed at least 44 workers, injured 183 and trapped 154, officials
The state-run South African Broadcasting Corp. quoted Hobus Olivier,
manager of the mine, as saying there was only a slight chance that the::
missing miners survived.
Dawie de Beer, a spokesman for General Mining Union Corp., South
Africa's second-largest mining group, told reporters at the mine gate that
26 bodies were brought out of the mine shortly before midnight, about 14
hours after the fire broke out.
Eighteen bodies had been recovered earlier.
De Beer reported 154 miners were missing.
Spotlights illuminated the two pithead towers as search operations con-
tinued through the night. Ambulances and police cars were standing by.
Guards checked vehicles at the gate, but there was no gathering of
relatives awaiting word about the fate of the missing men. Many black 5
miners live in company hostels and cannot be joined by their families who
remain in the black homelands or neighboring countries.
Shiites urge hostage talks
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Islamic Jihad urged the United States yesterday
to negotiate for the release of three American hostages in Lebanon as it
did with the Soviet Union for American newsman Nicholas Daniloff.
The Shiite Moslem group also released a letter bearing the name of
hostage David Jacobsen, which made a similar plea and warned that the
kidnappers might kill their captives.
White House spokesman Larry Speakes said in Washington that ad-
ministration officials believe Jacobsen apparently wrote the letter but
"there is good reason to question whether it was freely written and
represents anything more than the views of Mr. Jacobsen's captors."
The three-page letter was written in poor and often stilted English,
raising doubts that its original author was the 55-year-old Jacobsen, who
was the administrator of the American University Hospital when he was
kidnapped last year.
Cass teachers ordered back
to work; 3 strikes continue
Striking teachers decided yesterday they would return to classrooms in
the Cass City and Van Dyke districts, while negotiations continued at two
other Michigan public school districts and a community college.
The latest strikes began Monday at Mott Community College in Flint
and Van Dyke Public Schools in Warren. Classes were held yesterday at
the college, but not in the four districts with a total 8,950 students.
Tuscola County Circuit Court Judge Patrick Joslyn on Monday ordered
the Cass City district's 72 teachers back to work today, said Superinten-
dent Donald Crouse. Teachers will comply with the order, said Katie
Keatts, spokeswoman for the Michigan Education Association.
Joslyn also ordered bargainers for both sides to meet today, Crouse
said. The strike in the 1,500-student district started Sept. 2.
Classes for 10,400 Mott students are being staffer by substitute teacher-
s, management, and faculty members, school spokeswoman Laura
Grove said.
House contemplates new taxes
WASHINGTON - The House Ways and Means Committee eyed a
proposal to double the federal gasoline tax yesterday as Congress looked
toward new levies, possibly on cigarettes and alcohol as well, to meet
deficit-reduction commitments.
Rep. Dan Rostenkowski (D-Ill.) said lawmakers want to "round up the
usual suspects" for taxation, and also weigh the sale of some government
The chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, Pete Domenici (R-
N.M.) said he thought an oil import fee or a combination of an import fee
and gasoline tax might become part of the Senate's effort to curb the
Talk of new tax boosts has increased as Congress' cost-cutting efforts
have fallen short. While it appears most programs will be frozen or in-
creased only to allow for inflation, lawmakers have had little stomach for
making spending cuts in an election year.
But White House budget director James Miller told reporters that
President Reagan remains adamantly opposed to any tax increase. He
urged Congress to enact some of the $17 billion in deficit reductions the
administration has been proposing, including some user fees and sales of
government assets previously rejected.
Kremlin wants Daniloff decision
MOSCOW - A Foreign Ministry spokesman said yesterday that
Moscow wants the case of American journalist Nicholas Daniloff
resolved soon and that it should not be allowed to harm superpower '
Boris Pyadyshev, first deputy head of the Foreign Ministry's infor-
mation board, was asked at a news conference if there was any
movement toward solving Daniloff's case before Foreign Minister
Eduard Shevardnadze and Secretary of State George Shultz meet in
Washington on Friday.
The two are supposed to discuss a summit, and White House officials
have warned a summit is in jeopardy unless Daniloff returns home first.
"I am not sure whether it is correct to relate this case to the encoun-

ter," between Shultz and Shevardnadze, Pyadyshev said.
"This case should not hamper Soviet-American relations which are at a-
rather low level, even without this case, and our opinion is that this case
should be dealt with in a quiet manner without dramatizing the
situation," Pyadyshev said.
Daniloff, a correspondent for U.S. News & World Report, was arrested
in Moscow Aug. 30 by eight KGB agents after meeting a Soviet acquain-
tance and being given a package later found to contain military maps and
